JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE – Signs With Frontiers Music Srl; New Studio Album Due In Early 2017

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the signing of Jack Russell’s Great White to the label.

Jack Russell’s Great White represents the next phase of the iconic singer’s Rock n’ Roll legacy.

Since Jack Russell’s Great White inception in 2011, the frontman welcomed back longtime bassist and friend Tony Montana—this time as a guitar player and keyboardist—lead guitarist Robby Lochner (Rob Halford), drummer Dicki Fliszar (Bruce Dickinson) and Dan McNay (Montrose) on bass. The new album on the horizon, which is Jack’s 14th studio album, boasts the bluesy hard rock stomp that made Russell an icon in the first place.

“I want to say how happy and excited I am about my band,” states Jack Russell regarding the recent signing with Frontiers for the new album. “I have so much respect for Serafino, Mario, Derek and their team and am so thankful to be working with them. The band and I are off the hook about the new material. You are going to love it!”

The Grammys nominated Great White [Band] originally broke out of the Los Angeles scene in 1984 with its self-titled debut. The record was followed by the sophomore release Shot in The Dark and then by seismic platinum-selling outings such as 1987’s Once Bitten… and 1989’s …Twice Shy (which reached #9 on the Billboard Album Chart). Moving over 8 million copies worldwide, they stood out as tried-and-true rock stalwarts into the 21st century until 2011, when Russell went on to form Jack Russell’s Great White.

In 2014 JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE gave fans a taste of new music with the release of the single “Hard Habit” which received rave reviews from fans clamoring for the “classic” early sound of GREAT WHITE. Listen to “Hard Habit” HERE:

Ultimately, the new music is for the millions of fans who stuck by Russell all these years. It’s everything they’ve been waiting for and more. Russell leaves off, “this is fun, first and foremost. I feel like I’m 27 again. I hope it sounds like Great White—but for 2016.”

Frontiers plans to release the new record in early 2017.

JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE is currently performing various concerts around the U.S., for all dates and details visit the band’s website. Upcoming dates include:

July 20 – Stafford, TX
July 21 – Frisco, TX
July 22 – Beaumont, TX

IRON MASK – To Release New Album “Diabolica” On September 23rd!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on July 17, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

IRON MASK - Diabolica - promo album cover pic - 2016 - #MO999ILMFN

Belgian Melodic Power Metal band IRON MASK is right now putting finishing touches on their brand new album, titled “Diabolica”, which is scheduled for a September 23rd release, via AFM Records.

The following is from the IRON MASK Facebook and written by Dushan Petrossi – guitarist, lyricist, songwriter and writer of orchestral arrangements for IRON MASK:

I am happy and eager to present to you: “Diabolica ‘s line -up”.
 The sixth Iron Mask album, where I, as always, gave it my all to create something that pleases the fans, that I am proud to call my art. 
It is with great honour that I present to you the band!

First of all, 
On bass, the deep sound with a precise hand, Vassili Moltchanov.
 On drums, Heartbeat of the band, the great stick-spinning Master of Groove, Ramy Ali.
 On guitars, orchestration and all music composing and lyrics, yours truly…

Last but not least, for vocals I have worked together with Diego Valdez from Argentina (Electronomicon, Helker). 
After a long search and life twisting events, the band and I decided that only him could give these new songs justice, a new era and a bright future has just began.
 His passion and sound give an extra dimension to the soul of every single song.
 Working with him is a real joy on a high professional and artistic level.
 His voice is in perfect harmony with my music, just as his personality is with mine.

We all hope you enjoy every note on this album.
Keep on rocking, because we do it all for you!

Power Metal Vets IRON FIRE Releasing “Among the Dead” In September

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on July 16, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

Iron Fire - Among The Dead - promo album cover pic - 2016 - #99MO099ILMNF

Veteran Danish Power Metallers IRON FIRE will release their 8th full-length album Among the Dead September 26 on Crime Records. The album will be available on CD, cassette, and vinyl LP formats. Check out the Among the Dead Preview Video below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FRkL4CvebY

Want to Headbang like it’s 1999? Then Among the Dead should be your obvious choice. The new offering from IRON FIRE is as old school as it gets 16 years into the millennium.  The 90’s spawned a lot of Power Metal classics and Among the Dead is made in the spirit of those. Albums like Black in Mind (Rage), The Dark Saga (Iced Earth) and Better Than Raw (Helloween) were all blueprints for the making of Among the Dead.

Recorded in Death Island Studio with engineer Marco Angioni and Mixed in Poland’s Hertz Studios, heaviness is guaranteed, along with melodic hooks, blistering guitars and pounding Power Metal drumming. This is no-bullshit Metal from the heart, made by Denmarks finest Power Metal band!

IRON FIRE – Bio

Denmark’s best-selling Power Metal band Iron Fire is still alive and kicking. Sixteen years ago when a new millennium was entered, the Thunderstorm album struck the world, and is today considered a Danish Power Metal cult classic. Seven albums later the band still breathes as vibrantly as ever, and although there’s been various line-up changes, founding member Martin Steene and his sidekick Kirk Backarach pushed the boundaries of the band. In addition to Steene and Kirk, another founding member joined the battlefield, as original drummer Gunnar Olsen rejoined the band in 2015 after 15 years of absence.

Iron Fire is therefore now a three-piece band that still clings to melodic old school Power Metal as it was meant to be played. The music however has not remained still, instead evolving over time: From the dark epic Voyage of the Damned and the Rock n Roll influenced March of the Immortals, to classic power hymns like Wings of Rage. But first and foremost Iron Fire takes Power Metal very literally, as the common denominator in the music is and has always been, power… with a capital P!
