V-PROJECT   The New Machine
The V-Project is the brainchild of David Vaccaro, one of the denizens of the 1970s Boston scene that produced The Cars, J. Geils and Aerosmith, to name a few. “New Machine” finds Vaccaro mining familiar album-oriented-rock (AOR) depths with aplomb. Assisted by the ever dynamic Robin McAuley (McAuley-Schenker Group, Grand Prix, Survivor) on four tracks, Vaccaro has created a dynamic and authentic piece of late-70’s, early-80’s influenced guitar rock. “New Machine” does not break any new ground, but is a very listenable opus that dances around the edges of Southern Rock and 80’s Hair Metal at times. The highlights here happen to be the collaborations between McAuley and Vaccaro (“Exit Sign”, “Somebody Like You”, “You Don’t Care” and “Tangled In Your Web”). Also interesting is the Steve Miller cover “The Stake”.

VAIN Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! All Those Strangers
Vain released their debut, “No Respect” in 1989 and their videos, "Beat the Bullet" and "Who's Watching You" were featured in rotation on MTV's Headbanger's Ball and Hard 30/Hard 60 programs. The band toured the USA and rounded out the year with a UK tour supporting Skid Row.In 1991, things were to take a turn for the worse for Vain, and it would be finances rather than grunge which claimed this glam metal casualty, as their label, Island Records, collapsed before the band could release their second studio album, All Those Strangers. West and Rickard left the band in late 1991. Guitarist Shawn Rorie and former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler joined the band, which was re-named Roadcrew. Although a major label recording did not materialize, many of the Roadcrew songs can be found on later Vain releases. 1st Time On Cd !!

    Enough Rope
Since their first album “No Respect” of the year 1989, VAIN are one of my personal favorites when it comes to Poser Rock. Six years after their last album “On The Line”, Davy Vain and his guys finally present a follow-up. In my opinion “Enough Rope” was worth the wait. Songs like the sleazy and punky “Triple X”, the “No Respect”-like “Hot Stage Lights” or the melancholic “Stray Kitten” are just a few of the highlights that VAIN-fans will discover on the new record. Well, and Davy Vain’s unique voice has lost nothing to its charisma over the last 20 years. Cool album! MARCO SPÄTH

Review: No Respect is the debut from the California quintet known as Vain, and they kick ass! This band, along with Jetboy and the Sea Hags, helped solidify the San Francisco metal scene. I call their style hair/glam/sleaze. Songs such as "Secrets", "Who's Watching You" and "Ready" really rock. No Respect is one of the best and most underrated albums of the 80's. They had the look and sounded great, they should have been famous! I give No Respect two thumbs up!

    ST Remastered
Digitally remastered edition. Includes booklet with 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork with previously unseen photos and new interview. Rock Candy is no stranger to bad timing and misfired opportunities. For most people the results are of no great consequence but occasionally, the repercussions - especially with years of hindsight to put the loss into perspective - are truly lamentable. The failure of Valentine''''''''''''''''s sole album is one such case in point. If any melodic rock band should have made a huge international splash then this should have been the one. Formed in New York during the mid-''''''''''''''''80''''''''''''''''s and fronted by the sensational vocalist Hugo Valenti, the band soon made friends amongst the NY music business cognoscenti, leading to major management opportunities (Michael Bolton''''''''''''''''s manager Louis Levin) and a coveted major label deal with Columbia Records. It was easy to see why they attracted such a passionate reaction, armed with music that was not only powerful and memorable but also displayed a songwriting ability that left the competition in the dust. Amazingly the band''''''''''''''''s fortunes took a nose dive when executive changes at the label left them high and dry, forcing them to switch to another company, Giant Records, helmed by industry heavyweight Irving Azoff. Produced by Neil Kernon (Autograph, Queensryche, Lynch Mob) the album was eventually released in late 1990, and it received a great reception from the melodic rock aficionados. Packed with incredible songs, ranging from gilt-lined AOR such as ''''''''''''''''Runnin'''''''''''''''' On Luck Again'''''''''''''''', ''''''''''''''''Too Much Is Never Enough'''''''''''''''', to the pomp blast of ''''''''''''''''Where Are You Now'''''''''''''''' and Once In A Lifetime''''''''''''''''. But the icing on the cake must surely be ''''''''''''''''Never Said It Was Gonna Be Easy'''''''''''''''', one of the greatest power ballads of all time. 1 Runnin'''''''''''''''' on Luck Again 2 No Way 3 Tears in the Night 4 Too Much Is Never Enough 5 Never Said It Was Gonna Be Easy 6 Where Are You Now 7 Naughty Girl 8 Once in a Lifetime 9 Someday 10 We Run 11 You''''''''''''''''ll Always Have Me

VAMBO Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! II
The British classic rockers VAMBO present their second album simply titled "II". Simply to claim that Led Zeppelin meet here with Greta Van Fleet and the Rival Sons to the wedding, would be simply too simple thought. The work competently produced by Ray Stiles (Hollies, Mud) is despite the youthfulness of the band a mature, varied silver disc, which can shine through highlights such as the groovy "Shadows" and the smooth "Christine". In general, the songwriting is one of the strengths, along with the great voice of singer Jack Stiles and the Jimmy Page-influenced guitar work of Pete Lance. An album that fans of the above bands will enjoy!

    Chronicles Of Immortals
Welcome to a new dimension in the Vanden Plas universe! With their new work, “Chronicles of the Immortals – Netherworld,” the spectacular German progressive metal band has again shown artistic growth, continuing a pattern of development from album to album that we have grown accustomed to. In this case, the developmental step was a bit bigger than usual, due to the story behind the birth of “Chronicles of the Immortals – Netherworld.” Wolfgang Hohlbein, who with 43 million books sold worldwide is not only Germany’s biggest selling author but also a fan of VANDEN PLAS, suggested their creative collaboration: a rock opera for the stage based on his series “The Chronicle of the Immortals.” The result: “Bloodnight” (“Blutnacht”). The libretto was written by VANDEN PLAS singer Andy Kuntz, together with Hohlbein and his manager Dieter Winkler, himself a respected author. The VANDEN PLAS team of Stephan Lill/ Günter Werno/Andy Kuntz composed 19 songs for the stage production. “Bloodnight,” with Kuntz in the lead role and the VANDEN PLAS musicians in the orchestra pit, celebrated a stunning premiere on the stage of the Pfalztheater in Kaiserslautern in 2012. 25 sold-out performances in the 2012 and 2013 seasons with standing ovations that never seemed to end speak for themselves. Overwhelmed by this success, Hohlbein responded by writing another novel; the story of “Bloodnight.” The next step for the band was to turn the successful theatre piece into an equally successful VANDEN PLAS album. “Chronicles of the Immortals - Netherworld - Path 1” has 10 tracks comprising the first act of “Bloodnight.” “Path 2,” the second half of the album, is scheduled to bring the story to a conclusion in early 2015. Kuntz, in agreement with Hohlbein, adapted the stage version to fit an album format. On it he appears as the storyteller, so that unlike the stage production_he is not only the main character Andrej Delany but also embodies the roles of the other protagonists. In this way the story line is richer and more easily understood by the listener for whom the powerful visions from the stage production are not available. The music of “Chronicles of the Immortals – Netherworld” is pure VANDEN PLAS. The songs are noticeably harder than in the stage version and many solos have been included that were too difficult to stage in the theatrical production. Amendments to some of the arrangements can be heard and some scenes have been completely rewritten. Thus, some large chorus scenes from the stage production reappear with stark intimacy on the album, while in other sections a lush orchestral accompaniment replaces the piano line that had led the action in the stage version. It is the details that make this album different from other VANDEN PLAS recordings. It is clearly evident that this album recounts the story from a newly staged theatre production, which makes the VANDEN PLAS music to “Chronicles of the Immortals – Netherworld” even more diversified and vivid.

  Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! Chronicles Of The Immortals: Netherworld II
"Chronicles Of The Immortals - Netherworld II" is a fascinating symbiosis of art forms with which the German Prog-Metal Band Vanden Plas can clearly justify its exceptional status. Following the previously released "Chronicles Of The Immortals - Netherworld, Path 1" (2014), the listener can expect elaborate arrangements, sensitive piano melodies, and epic instrumental passages, paired with the characteristically hard Vanden Plas sound and distinctive vocals of Andy Kuntz. In doing so, the band continues to break new ground while still remaining faithful to its original style. Themes which play an essential role in our lives, such as death and immortality, are examined in the texts. Because the story is too complex to be expressed through a single CD, Vanden Plas has chosen to release "Chronicles Of The Immortals - Netherworld" on two discs. Fans of the saga of the immortal Andrej Delãny may now enjoy its eagerly awaited continuation with "Chronicle Of The Immortals - Netherworld II." We remember that as "Chronicles Of The Immortals - Netherworld, Path I" ended, the perfidious plans of the dark Godmaker threatened to emerge. All seemed lost! Yet from within the pervading darkness shone a soft light. Deliverance comes in the second half of the story, where the creative duo of VandenPlas/Wolfgang Hohlbein has merged again in top form. Struck down with a treacherous stroke from a cursed blade, Andrej Delãny finds himself in a maelstrom which threatens to crush him completely, along with his immortality. His adversary's devilish plot would force Andrej to misuse the power given to him so long ago. Andrej must decide to ascend to the Pantheon of the dark Gods and there to destroy the old Gods, so that the Godmaker can reign there for eternity. Despising that, he must pass through the gates to the "Netherworld," where a virtually hopeless path of shadow and danger awaits him that will most certainly lead him in the end to his own death. The darkest hours of his now limited existence force Andrej to search deeply into his soul. What is immortality? Is its possession truly a worthy goal? Or does this gift condemn the possessor in the end to the painful loss of everything he has ever loved? It is precisely this awareness, wrung out of him during his death agonies, which determine Andrej to strike out on the seemingly hopeless path to "Netherworld." There he hopes to find Marius, the son he believes to be dead, and to rescue the souls of the lost children from the darkness. There he also hopes to finally stand opposite the love of his life again. Thus will his "death" be transformed into the unique chance for him to live - and in his mortality, finally to be human. Vanden Plas has always been open to remarkable and unusual ideas, and the collaboration with Wolfgang Hohlbein found fertile ground there from the beginning. The author who has sold more than 40 million books worldwide was long a big fan of the band. "Blutnacht" (Bloodnight), a stage production performed at the Pfalztheater Kaiserslautern, was based on his series "The Chronicle of the Immortals." Hohlbein, his manager Dieter Winkler, and Vanden Plas frontman Andy Kuntz developed the story and Vanden Plas provided the musical realization. The reward was 25 sold-out performances during the 2012 and 2013 seasons and unanimously thrilled audiences. With the current "Everyman - A Rock Mystery," Vanden Plas has managed again to successfully combine theater and rock music as it has over and over again in years past. This completely through-composed rock opera with lyrics in middle-English enjoyed huge success in Kaiserslautern, where it premiered in the 2014-15 season. As a result, it will not only be held over there for the 2015-16 season, but will appear in theaters in Münster and Innsbruck in the near future.

  Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! SIN
Every album paints a picture. Instead of utilizing a brush and canvas, Vandenberg paints with towering vocals, earthquaking rhythms, and the iconic and instantly recognizable fretwork of guitarist and namesake Adrian Vandenberg. Joined by vocalist Mats Levén, drummer Koen Herfst, and bassist Randy van der Elsen, the influential axe-slinger delivers a vibrant, visceral, and vital vision on the group''''s fifth full-length offering, Sin [Mascot Label Group], brought to life in broad strokes of anthemic hard rock and airtight metal and produced by Bob Marlette [Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie] "For me, music is very much like a painting," affirms Adrian. "You have your ups, downs, lights, and shades. One song might make you want to jump on the table and party your brains out. Another song will inspire you to think. Either way, you''''re thrown into a landscape, which my favorite albums still do to me. You could be in your car or at home with your headphones plugged into a soundsystem, and you''''re in a different world." 1 Thunder and Lightning 2 House on Fire 3 Sin 4 Light It Up 5 Walking on Water 6 Burning Skies 7 Hit the Ground Running 8 Baby You''''ve Changed 9 Out of the Shadows

  Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! Grit Your Teeth
VEGA’s sixth album, “Grit Your Teeth” will be released on May 8, 2020 and is set to “blow the roof off”. Working with “The Graves Brothers” (Asking Alexandria, Funeral for Friend, The Family Ruin), they’ve pulled out all the stops, disconnected the brakes, and produced their biggest songs for their biggest sounding album yet. Theirs is a brand of music that is as rewarding as it is challenging. This is not the end, but the beginning of an exciting new chapter in the history of Vega. They’ve toured over the years with Skid Row, Last in Line, FM, Magnum, Joe Elliott’s Down and Outz, Dan Reed Network, and have had festival appearances at DOWNLOAD, Planet Rockstock, Steelhouse, HRH AOR, Rockingham, and the Frontiers Rock Festival in Milan, that have all gone into shaping them into one of the UK’s finest melodic rock bands. The fact that they are not more widely recognised is more down to bad luck than anything else, as anyone that has witnessed them live recently will testify. VEGA’s members have a rich history, including stints with Kick, Sugartown, and Paul Dianno, but it was their meeting of musical minds back in 2009 that would lead to the melodic rock genre receiving one of the finest releases of that year in the form of their debut album, “Kiss Of Life”. The eclectic, off-kilter style of rock made them stand out from the crowd and the band were keen to be more than just another “AOR” band. Bassist Tom Martin was keen to play down their AOR credentials by stating in Classic Rock Magazine, “We don’t want to be an eighties throwback.” It’s not that they don’t like AOR, far from it; it’s just that they wanted to add new flavours and it’s a manifesto that they live for still. 1. Blind 2. (I Don’t Need) Perfection 3. Grit Your Teeth 4. Man On A Mission 5. Don’t Fool Yourself 6. Consequence Of Having A Heart 7. This One’s For You 8. Battles Ain’t A War 9.

    Kiss Of Life
VEGA, featuring former KICK vocalist Nick Workman and the successful and respected song writing partnership of Tom and James Martin (House of Lords, Ted Poley of Danger Danger, Khymera, Sunstorm to name but a few) are about to take the Melodic Rock world by storm. Their debut album “Kiss of Life” has been produced by John Greatwood (engineer for Tom Lord Alge of QUEEN fame) and mastered by the one and only Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69) and features 12 rock songs which mix classic Bon Jovi and Def Leppard, with a pinch of U2 and Journey. Tom and James met Nick 10 years ago when KICK was supporting Thunder on the first of their farewell tours. In the time that followed, the guys had always wanted to work with Nick, and opportunity came knocking in May 2009. The two brothers and drummer Dan Chantrey met Nick for a second time at a U.K. rock festival. Conversations about movies and music finally moved on to the all important question…..”When are we going to work together?“. The answer ended up being the next day, and VEGA was born. The chemistry between the guys was obvious and two brothers became four! VEGA wrote 25 songs in the coming months and chose the best songs for recording. No expense was spared and a top UK recording studio was booked and in John Greatwood a producer with numerous UK and European top 10 albums and singles was on board! Following recording and mixing in October, Dennis Ward stepped up to the plate to put the final touches to the album, mastering it in his studio in Germany. VEGA will be out on the road in 2011 taking it to the fans live on stage. LINE-UP: Nick Workman: vocals Tom Martin: guitars James Martin: keyboards Dan Chantrey: drums

    What The Hell
The British band VEGA is one of the rare acts who managed to adjust their classic Melodic Rock sound to modern age. Singer Nick Workman (ex-KICK), the creative-brothers Tom and James Martin plus drummer Dan Chantrey dress and style contemporarily and their music sounds like a modern version of DEF LEPPARD. Compared with the great debut, Kiss Of Life, the14 new songs sound even more matured. Any of them would be strong enough be a single, but highlights are No There For You, Raise Ya Game, Fade To Flames, You Cant Run.

VELVET VIPER Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! Nothing Compares To Metal
"Nothing Compares To Metal" is a continuation of Velvet Viper''''s concept with lyrics about classical, poetic and mythical themes. Just like on the first three albums of the band''''s new era, Jutta and Holger have composed all the songs together. For Velvet Viper it is very important to create music that reflects the band''''s mentality and creative freedom, because the world need originals, not copies. For the very first time, there is a song with German lyrics featured on the album, which is a private little statement from Jutta, that is available on the CD and digital version of the album only. All songs on the album are about 5, 6 or 7 minutes long, because the band felt, that the songs need enough space to evolve with it''''s different parts and complex structuring to create the drama Velvet Viper want their music to convey. Velvet Viper has chosen a natural old-school sound with only some little sprinkles of keyboard here and there, and they tried to capture their live sound they love so much as well. Velvet Viper has toured and recorded with an unchanged lineup for several years now, and really nailed their style of music with crushing beats and great melodies this time. The CD digipak contains three additional songs not included on the limited vinyl LP, including the band''''s first German-language song. 1 Nothing Compares to Metal 2 Invisible Danger 3 Urd Wardande Skula 4 Blood on the Moon 5 Speak Truth to Power 6 Sorcerer''''s Apprentice 7 Heroic Hearts 8 Rise from the Fallen 9 The 4th Part 10 New World Child 11 Es Kommt Die Zeit

VENDETTA   Tyranny Of Minority
TYRANNY OF MINORITY” is 12 tracks of scorching traditional metal and marks the debut release from UK metallers VENDETTA. The mission was simple - to make an album of classic metal anthems, one that would capture the essence of the music that had driven these men since their youths in the rain swept hills of Cumbria and the industrial wastes of the North East of England. With “Tyranny Of Minority” VENDETTA have produced a debut album of timeless quality, one that reflects not only the world in which we live, but is testament to the power of musical faith. One of the bands main goals was to place a strong emphasis on great hooks and tight arrangements. The last Vendetta wanted was for the album to become bloated and outstay its welcome. “Tyranny Of Minority” is packed full of guitars with solo’s that trade off a la Tipton and Downing, harmonies and a wide range of different tonalities. VENDETTA are on the warpath, hell bent on staking their claim in the pantheon of Metal. You're either for or against them, there's no in-between.

    Crystal Eye Limited Digi + 2
Limited digipak edition includes two bonus tracks. It''s a full 30 years ago that Leon Goewie founded the Dutch rock band Vengeance in the early 1980s; 30 years in which the band went through variably successful times and which had Goewie himself experience the usual highs and lows of life as a musician. Yet: he never lost his inherent optimism nor his basic enthusiasm for Vengeance. Crystal Eye, the group''s 2012 album, is - as Goewie puts it - "straightforward rock''n''roll which communicates first and foremost a positive feeling and a strong sense of humor, going directly for the audience''s central nervous system." At the same time Goewie, whose uniquely expressive voice can be picked out among thousands, cannot deny that his band has developed: "After 30 years in this business, you should mature at least a little," he grins knowingly, "so in that respect Crystal Eye is slightly more serious than most of our previous releases - but of course only to an extent where we don''t miss out on the fun of it all."

    Piece Of Cake
Back In The Ring” of the year 2006 marked a strong comeback for Dutch rockers VENGEANCE. While the following albums “Soul Collector” and “Crystal Eye” fell flat, the new effort “Piece Of Cake” sees the Dutch rockers return to form. With the dynamic “World Arena”, the balladesque “Tears From The Moon” and the powerful “Raintime” the album opens really strong. The following “Sandman” is only a filler while “Back To Square One” has become a cool Blues ballad a la Gary Moore.

VERNI Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! Barricade
Overkill songwriter and bassist D.D. Verni will be releasing his long awaited debut album worldwide through Mighty Music in October. "There''''''''s some metal, punk, classic rock.....its all in there, from Queen to Green Day to Metallica, I think we covered all the basses!", declares D.D. Verni. D.D. Verni''''''''s first solo effort has a host of guitar players doing guest spots on the record. Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy), Angus Clark (Trans Siberian Orchestra), Jeff Waters (Annihilator), Bruce Franklin (Trouble), Mike Romeo (Symphony X), Mike Orlando (Adrenalin Mob), Steve Leonard (Almost Queen),and Andre "Virus" Karkos (Dope) who also contributed the rhythm guitar tracks. Rounding out the group is former Overkill drummer Ron Lipnicki. The record was mixed and mastered by Chris "Zuess" Harris (Rob Zombie, Queesryche, Hatebreed). The first single "Fire Up" features guitarist Mike Orlando. D.D. Verni states "I''''''''m psyched to get this disc out, we had a lot of fun and a lot of great players contributed". In addition to 18 Overkill full length releases, Verni has 4 releases with his side band The Bronx Casket Co. D.D. Verni continues "so why do a solo record....well I never really stop writing material,and after some time it starts to pile up and take shape and I wonder what it will be. In the past anything that was not Overkill material I would put aside for my other band The Bronx Casket Co, but when I starting pulling these songs together it was clearly not that, and I thought, OK I guess it''''''''s a solo record. The material was kinda Metal and kinda Rock and kinda Punk, so those really are my basic influences. In Overkill I take all that background and funnel it into our Thrash sound. But these songs were not Thrash but a combination of the other stuff. I would never really have an interest in doing a record that was thrash sounding outside of Overkill, I just don''''''''t think it could be any better. The fun is trying new shit and seeing where it goes for me. I could always do all the instruments myself as I have in the past on projects but thought this could be a good opportunity to try working with some new people. My wife was hearing me thinking out loud and basically said why don''''''''t you just call some guys who''''''''s work you like and see if they would be interested, and so that''''''''s what I did". 1.

VICIOUS DISORDER Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! Life Is Chance ( Bang Tango guitarist autographed )
Springfield, Massachusetts-based unsigned metal band VICIOUS DISORDER has landed a song in the DVD documentary "Halloween: 25 Years of Terror", which was released by Anchor Bay Entertainment on July 25, 2006. Three years ago, VICIOUS DISORDER (taking an idea and direction given to them from their business advisor Sullivan Bigg of Bigg Time Entertainment in Los Angeles) wrote a song incorporating the eerie classic theme music from the "Halloween" movies (written by John Carpenter in 1978). They recorded "Pure Evil" with producer John Ellis at Prism Sound in Acton, MA. The song was then submitted to the executive producers at Trancas Films by Bigg on behalf of VICIOUS DISORDER. The song was accepted and after some negotiations a deal was made. Along with the song being used in the documentary, the band has its own link in the special features section of the DVD menu. It includes a photographic slideshow of the band while the song plays

  Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! S/T ( Remastered )
Victory was formed in 1984 from the remnants of the band Fargo. Bassist Peter Knorn, the two guitarists Tommy Newton and John Lockton and drummer Bernie Van der Graaf had all previously worked together in that band. After originally working with singer Pedro Schemm, and later Thunderhead frontman Ted Pullit, former Gary Moore- and Ted Nugent-singer Charlie Huhn became the band’s singer. The self-titled album originally appeared in 1985 on CBS Records to mild controversy because of the cover art: a scantily-dressed woman lying on her back with her legs spread, forming a V. The hype worked and the album made the charts. Today, Victory’s self-titled debut album is one of the most sought after, rare records in Germany’s Hard Rock history. With the help of Sony Music Germany, Yesterrock now is re-releasing this gem with digitally remastered sound. Line-Up: Charlie Huhn (Lead Vocals, Guitar and Piano), Tommy Newton (Guitars and Background Vocals), John Lockton (Guitars and Background Vocals), Peter Knorn (Bass), Bernie Van Der Graaf (Drums)

VIE, DONNIE Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! Beauriful Things
For fans of Enuff Z''''Nuff, Beatles & classic rock! Donnie Vie is one of rock''''s biggest secrets who has been crafting melodic power pop and rock songs for over 30 years. He and his band were instant critics'''' darlings with a debut record that soared up the charts generating two long playing MTV hits, a "Top Pick" from Rolling Stone Magazine, and inciting numerous TV and radio performances with repeat invitations from David Letterman and Howard Stern. That band was Enuff Z''''Nuff, led by Grammy nominated Donnie Vie''''s songwriting sensibilities and distinctive melodic vocals, they continued on to make some truly great records. Over those years, Donnie has amassed over 25 albums'''' worth of songs and decades of live shows to his name, both with and without his former band. Now a solo act, Vie continues his songwriting and performing under his own name. Rolling Stone Magazine described Donnie''''s writing skills as "Beatle-esque pop songcraft and ripping hard rock", whereas Billboard Magazine says, "If there is such a thing as false advertising in rock & roll, then Enuff Z''''nuff is one of it''''s textbook examples. Packaged in garish peace-glam attire by their record company, the group was wrongly lumped in with the disposable pop-metal bands of the late ''''80s rather than appreciated for the truly gifted power pop act that they were." The brand new album Beautiful Things is already getting the attention it deserves, "As a piece of art it''''s stunning. This collection of songs is a wonderful addition to the legacy Vie has constructed over the last four decades, but not just that, these are songs we''''ll remember for years to come. These are songs to keep in your heart and let out when you need to get back from the blue."

  Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! In Hoc Signo Vinces
VII Gates are a classic metal outfit hailing from Sweden who add a new dimension to the genre with the infusion of modern day power metal elements creating a nice blend between the two eras of metal. Their debut album “Fire, Walk With Me” (2004, Sound Riot Records) received strong critical acclaim with writers praising the bands mix of classic metal values with modern day inflections. Their new album and debut release on Lion Music, “In Hoc Signo Vinces” (in this you will conquer) sees the band pushing this element further yet all the while keeping a consistent flow to the music and bands trademark sound. The guitar work of JJ Rockford and Robert Makek leaves a rich musical backdrop for the crisp vocals of Criss Blackburn to deliver many moods. Underpinned by the dynamic rhythm section of drummer Mick Van Slowfoot and new bassist Nicola Posa; VII Gates deliver metal that will appeal to fans of classic metal and the modern day power metal movement. On the album JJ Rockford comments, “When we released our first album "Fire, walk with me", the reviews where incredibly good. People really seemed to like how we took classic heavy metal and added a few new elements here and there. So, for this album, we tried to take this process even further. So the songs will sometimes have very dramatic changes, you will never know what will happen next. But still we managed to keep a flow, it still sounds like relatively normal songs in a traditional sense. In VII Gates, there is always a steady foundation of a very classic hard rock/heavy metal sound at the base. But above that basic layer it’s more open this time around". "The titles of all the lyrics probably sound like typical heavy metal titles. But behind them, you will only find stories of two general subjects. First, usual horror movie/books subjects. Or secondly, stories about bad marriages or the lust to live your own life, free from conventional relationships. Most of the tracks are more intricate and also a bit longer than on our debut but not at the expense of quality. New bassist Nicola Pasa definitely helped make the songs feel more alive, through some really carefully prepared bass playing. Guest keyboardist Tim Diaz also had more freedom this time. It’s still the basic instruments and the strong songs which are doing the main work, but the keyboards really added an extra dimension to the songs”.

Guitar legends Paul Gilbert and Michael Angelo Batio each perform guest guitar solos. Born in Portsmouth, England in 1989, just before the high tech guitar craze and Heavy Metal gave way to Grunge, Jacky Vincent was inspired by guitarists such as Paul Gilbert, Jason Becker, Vinnie Moore, Joe Satriani, and Steve Vai.

VINDICTIV   Ground Zero
The Basis of Vindictiv started in early 2004 and is the brainchild of Stefan Lindholm. At an early stage Stefan contacted keyboard maestro Pontus Larsson and they started to work on some of the songs Stefan had laid down. They recorded a demo with Tommy Karevik (Seventh Wonder) and guitarist Johan Larsson (Johan and Tommy Band). The result was the 2005 demo and it met with some great reviews in Sweden rock magazine. However, Johan and Tommy decided to move on but Stefan managed to contact respected singer Goran Edman (Yngwie Malmsteen / Karma, etc) and, as he liked the songs, he put his heart and soul into making them fantastic. Bass player Nalle Pahlsson (Zan-Clan, Treat) joined the already impressive line-up and through Goran they got in touch with drummer Mikael Wikman, who played on the debut (ESM164). Zoltan Csorsz has since taken the stool and his fantastic drumming can be heard on “Ground Zero”. Musically the band is everything you would expect and more from Sweden. Goran Edman sings his heart out on seven of the eleven tracks and his powerful pipes suit the band in a way that just can only be described as awesome. The guitar technique of Stefan Lindholm is as crisp and neat as ever, and he seems to effortlessly produce exciting riffs and melodies with nonchalance. His early years admiring and emulating the works of Malmsteen and Vai shine through but he does have a technique of his own that finds its way through. Keyboards play a vital role in the overall sound and there are plenty of “cat and mouse” keyboards throughout, and when in harmony, form a grand wall of sound. The inclusion of Oliver Hartmann and Mark Boals in the vocal duties is a clever one and gives the band a more interesting slant; their input puts the cherry on top of the cake. There is simply not a weak track on the CD and the huge leap forward in sound since the debut is unquestionable. “Ground Zero” is a fantastic outing into Majestic Metal with the flawless guitar technique of Lindholm leading the way, of course backed by the pedigree of the band members. Vindictiv have taken a big step forward and have matured beyond all expectations.

VIOLENT DIVINE   S/T
History begins in the early 80's where the all the popular bands were arena-bands and most of them come out of the L.A. In a sleepy little town in Sweden, 4 guys grew up listening to the brand new kind of metal and hardrock that MTV and the independent recordstores offered them. Bands like Motley Crue, Ratt, Poison, Van Halen, Aerosmith where highway of inspiration for this 4 guys (even though Klaus were more into the trash scene with bands like Slayer and the early version of Metallica, and didn't care much for those "hairbands" that were ruling the charts). While growing up and starting their own bands, their paths crossed every now and then. Through bands like Marshal Kane, Abandoned Sphinx, Starsky, Sleazy Rose, Millhouse these 4 guys met, broke up, met again for about over a decade, until the day in 2005 when the time had come to form VIOLENT DIVINE. Colored by their background and their musical sources of inspiration, VIOLENT DIVINE is a summary of all those years playing music, being on stage, playin the same records that they did when it all began... and the love they share for this kind of hard but melodic rock. In 2006 the band inked a deal with Chavis Records for their debut release.

Commented vocalist David DeFeis: "It will be a long album... close to 80 minutes. The album (to be really brief) concerns the reversal of all things. Once conquered by invading cultures, older Pagan deities become the demons of the new religion. The Black Light Bacchanalia is a reversal of the sacred sexual customs, and the final desecration of the 'Goddess Principle,' switching from matrilineal descent to patrilineal descent, with the rise of the idea of the Mountain-Fire God.... And it also has to do with ancient fears such as the fear of the sun not rising...Lyrically it is a kind of continuation of the story I told on the last album... Musically it is quite something else..." Standard Jewel Case Edition: 01. By The Hammer Of Zeus (And The Wrecking Ball Of Thor) 02. Pagan Heart 03. The Bread Of Wickedness 04. In A Dream Of Fire 05.

VIRON   Ferrum Gravis
One of the best debut albums from Germany ever”, Rock Hard Magazin wrote about NWOGHM, the first CD of the German metal band VIRON. After just one demo-ep the CD was released by a small Greek metal label and received very good reviews in all metal related magazines. Even the title appeared to be a bit polarizing, the CD surprisingly does sounded more like classic US Metal than like Teutonic Metal which often tends to be more “happy” sounding. After the release VIRON played on several festivals including Headbangers Open Air and Swordbrothers Festival and did small tours and single shows with bands like Ruffians, Majesty, Sabaton or Morgana Lefay. And again they got tons of great reviews in the press, this time for being a great live band. In 2007 VIRON added a song to the Manilla Road tribute compilation “The Riddle Masters”. This positive development in such a short period of time showed that their previous label wasn't able to handle VIRON in a necessary and needful way. So they agreed to let VIRON go. After receiving several offers, they signed with Metal Heaven in Summer 2007. NWOGHM included all the songs the band had written until the day of entering the studio. What you hear on the CD is a reproduction of what the band sounded live on stage. On FERRUM GRAVIS the band again didn't use modern studio technics like triggered drums or amp-simulations. You won't find keyboards on the CD and it was mastered just as much as it was needful. Even though the way of recording is quite similar to the debut, the new CD shows a lot of differences. Much more time was invested into the songwriting process and catchy refrains were a major goal. The CD again was produced at Kohlekeller Studio (Sieges Even, Killers, Crematory). After a month of recording and mixing, FERRUM GRAVIS has a clear and natural, but still powerful sound. FERRUM GRAVIS shows a huge development of the typical VIRON style and it seems like they have created an album suitable for any metal fan. The style ranges from classic metal to thrash, even within single songs, but everything fits together very well though. They show that classic metal doesn't need to sound outdated, that true metal must not deal with dragons & swords or needs to contain “kindergarden melodies” and that melody and heavyness can go well together. With FERRUM GRAVIS, VIRON will break out of the metal underground.

VISION DIVINE Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! 9 Degrees West Of The Moon
The new album is particularly important in the history of the band as it marks the return of Fabio Lione on lead vocals, after Thorsen's decision to say goodbye to Michele Luppi in June 2008. "Fabio's return is like going back to square one for us", comments the band's creative mastermind Olaf "However Vision Divine is a band that did always move forward and I think that with his voice and interpretation he has enriched the songs and gave them a very peculiar and personal edge. I am truly enthusiast of his return in the band and look forward to bring this record out there with his amazing vocal abilities". Vision Divine line-up is completed by Alessio Lucatti on keyboards, Cristiano Bertocch ex-Labyrinth) on bass, Federico Puleri on guitar and Alessandro Bissa on drums. Produced by none other than the former Stratovarius mainman Timo Tolkki, Vision Divine created what is easily their most mature and intense record to date. Entitled “9 Degrees West of The Moon”, this is Vision Divine 's heaviest, but yet most melodic and catchy album ever, showing why they are now the number 1 band in the Italian Metal scene. "Melodies are the most important element of our music. However our songwriting is very diverse" explains Olaf, who adds "all the songs have very different atmospheres and can go from melodic songs like Violet Loneliness to very aggressive and heavy ones. I think there is something for everyone on this record". Vision Divine are also working hard on putting up a new World Tour which will bring the band to play again in Asia, South America and possibly Europe outside their homeland Italy. “9 Degrees West Of The Moon” is a fantastic journey that fans will consider as the true Vision Divine career defining statement!

VISIONATICA leave nothing to chance and continue their clear musical vision purposefully with the upcoming album “Enigma Fire” and their proven producer team.

  Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! Rev It Up - Remastered -
VIXEN WERE the target of numerous sexist clichés when they first appeared on the scene back in the late ''''''''80s, much in the same way as previous female acts had suffered from such disrespectful male misogyny. The band''''''''s musical virtuosity affirmed their place in the hard rock pantheon during a time when the world''''''''s perception of women was actually and thankfully fast changing. Vixen''''''''s arrival showed that women could contribute valid musical endeavours and rival the male rock stars Formed in St. Paul Minnesota and based in Los Angeles during the late ''''''''80s the band consisted of vocalist and guitarist Janet Gardner, lead guitarist Jan Kuehnemund, bassist Share Pederson and drummer Roxy Petrucci. Attracting major management they signed to EMI records, issuing their debut album in 1988, which surprised many of their doubters by quickly achieving Gold status and allowing them to tour extensively. Buoyed by this flush of success the band returned to the studio to record ''''''''Rev It Up'''''''', produced by Randy Nicklaus (Shark Island) and released in July 1990. Receiving positive reviews, and achieving good chart positions, the album was regarded as a step above their debut signalling a significant musical development and a far more direct approach to the recordings. Rough and raw, the record contained a number of high points and helped to secure them a following beyond North America, touring with Deep Purple and KISS. Sadly, however, due to the eventual emergence of grunge and management problems the band''''''''s initial run was short lived and they elected to split up at that point rather than carry on in the face of overwhelming odds. Versions of the band continued the work later, and still do, despite Jan kuehnemund passing away in 2013. 1 Rev It Up 2 How Much Love 3 Love Is a Killer 4 Not a Minute Too Soon 5 Streets in Paradise 6 Hard 16 7 Bad Reputation 8 Fallen Hero 9 Only a Heartbreak Away 10 It Wouldn''''''''t Be Love 11 Wrecking Ball

If you consider the songs on Voodoo Circle''''''''s album Raised On Rock to be an indicator of the current emotional condition their most important protagonists find themselves in, there seems to be no reason to worry about band founder, guitarist and main composer Alex Beyrodt in particular. Thanks to Beyrodt''''''''s excellent songwriting - as usual inspired by renowned sources such as Whitesnake, Rainbow, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix - and his outstanding guitar performance which brings to mind icons from Ritchie Blackmore through Jimmy Page to John Sykes, this recording oozes pure, unadulterated fervour. This exuberant energy, however, isn''''''''t the merit of Beyrodt alone but, without doubt, also that of his colleagues Mat Sinner (bass), Francesco Jovino (drums) and - last but not least - new vocalist Herbie Langhans (Avantasia). With Langhans as the group''''''''s new frontman, the stylistic direction of the Voodoo Circle compositions hasn''''''''t significantly changed - unlike the general flair of the material: "I feel that the band sounds even more autonomous, a little less bluesy and much meatier with Herbie at the mic," Beyrodt enthuses. "This allowed me to work on ideas which would probably not really have suited his predecessor David Readman but are absolutely perfect for Herbie''''''''s powerful voice." Talking of the sound: Raised On Rock was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, U.D.O.), whose unerring instinct for dynamics and frequencies lends the recording it''''''''s modern touch. And another musician contributed significantly to the tight overall impression of Raised On Rock: the keyboards were manned by Corvin Bahn (Saxon, Uli Jon Roth). So all in all, we can say that the new Voodoo Circle album truly lives up to it''''''''s programmatic title.

VOODOO SIX   First Hit For Free
In 2006, the British band put out their debut CD, “Feed My Soul”. Their label didn’t promote the record, and rolling into 2007, the band was still virtually unknown. Voodoo Six brought in new management, and Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Metallica, Van Halen) who remixed the album. Voodoo Six didn’t stop there. They also added the killer new tune, “Faith”, to their album, “First Hit For Free”. So how is the new disc? If you missed their debut, then “First Hit For Free” is an excellent new way to check out Voodoo Six. Voodoo Six has a cool classic rock sound that is listening to Led Zeppelin with a blend of Soundgarden meets Velvet Revolver and brings back the “real” rock to mainstream.

    I Am The Revolution
"I don't care what you call this band: prog, metal, melodic rock or dark metal, but just call it brilliant." - That's what one reviewer said about the band who stands tall in its uniqueness in today's sea of music. That band is Australia's VOYAGER. Aptly defined as "A metal incarnation of 80s legends A-HA", VOYAGER has always appealed to a massive spectrum of music connoisseurs. For fans of SOILWORK, NIGHTWISH and HIM, right through to those who embrace the neoclassical masters MUSE, this Australian band combines it all into a melting pot of incredible melodies and arrangements. Voyagers third album "I am the reVolution" is a journey into the overloaded information age, with a sound so versatile and unique that is is simply unforgettable ... the reVolution begins HERE!

  Go to the Rathole for a detailed description! The Meaning Of i
Australian band VOYAGER s loyal international fanbase has praised its incredibly catchy songwriting and compared its sound to a mixture of AMORPHIS' thirst for melody, SOILWORK's heaviness and the crystal vocal clarity of A-HA's Morton Harket. Their 4th album is a dark, heavy, introspective, at times electronic, yet often uplifting journey into the mind in search of meaning. "The Meaning Of I" is a culmination of VOYAGER's sound: polished yet organic, heavy yet melodic, dark yet playful. The album was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (OPETH, SOILWORK). Special guest vocal performances by Dan Tompkins (TESSERACT) and DC Cooper (ROYAL HUNT). Surrealist artist George Grie provided the gripping cover art.

VOYEUR   S/T
It would be my guess that only people in the local Bay Area as well as a hand full of die hard rock 'n' rollers will have ever heard of these guys, but let me tell you that every hard rock fan will know about them soon. I got the tip off on these guys many years back from a dear friend of mine and ever since that very day it was my mission to find this great band, Voyeur. Voyeur are compiled together from various lesser known local Bay Area hair bands. Like most bands when starting off, Voyeur had dreams of world domination. Unfortunately Voyeur were just another late 80's hard rock group with amazing talent that were continuously overlooked by major labels. In Voyeur's short life, they played along side many great hard rock acts such as Flame, Vain, Murder Bay, Babylon A.D. and Mad Anthony. Naturally adopting a similar sound the their local band mates.
