Golden Resurrection - Glory To My King - [2010]

Golden Resurrection's Glory to My King is one of the finest representation of Scandi melodic neo-classical heavy metal. While the obvious and intentional proclamation of Jesus Christ and Christianity may put off some, Glory to My King is a genuinely entertaining example of the genre. Fans of real neo-classical guitar blended with strong and harmonious vocal arrangements, and an often heavy and blistering pace will find themselves in melodic heavy metal heaven.

Salute - Heart Of The Machine - [2010]

Mikael Erlandsson returns with his sophomore release Heart of the Machine. The Last Autumn's Dream vocalist continues the path tread on Toy Soldier. Actually, the music hear could easily have been the second of a two disc set on the former release or simply the songs that didn't make it (simply because he had too many). Nevertheless, this is standard Erlandsson/LAD fare: nearly immaculate, persuasive, and entertaining melodic rock from a true master.

Blindman - Re/Rise - [2010]

¡ Fuckin´great 7th album from this Japan Hard Rockers !, a perfect mix between old Hard Rock style and 80´s Heavy Metal. A record with great guitar driving rhythmns , strong production, catchy choruses, ultra melodic songs and the amazing and personal voice of Manabu Takaya.¡Keep On Rockin´!

High-Handed Mask


HolyHell - s/t - [2009]

HolyHell is a female-fronted Power Metal band from the United Stated and this is their self-titled debut. The band has all the elements that you want in a band from the genre: soothing voice, good musicianship and solid songs. The band has good great players starting with their singer Maria Breon. Her voice is soothing and melodic, you'll be satisfied with her performance as long as you don't expect super high notes. The rhythm section is very good, led by Jay Rigney (bass) and Kenny Earl "Rhino" Edwards (drums, and former Manowar member). Nevertheless, to me their pair of guitarists Thomas Hess and Joey Stump are the stars of the record. Both of them contribute a lot to the songs and while the riffs are unspectacular. ¡Strong dark Album!

Seikima II - A Quarter Century Of Rebellion - [2010]

An amazing Metal album of mass destruction. ¡ Thumbs up for the infernal demons of the empire of the rising sun !

Zard - Good Bye My Loneliness - [1991]

¡ First Zard album !,Great Japanese band with japanese lyrics with little touches of English, a mix between Jp-Rock, Pop and a little touches of Melodic AOR, a release filled with tons of feeling, great melodic guitar rhythmns, fantastic keyboard work, catchy melodies, vibes and the awesome vocals of Izumi Sakai. if you give him an opportunity, sure you find something good here.

Aiwa Kurayami No Naka De


Seventh Key - The Raging Fire - [2004]

A great melodic hard rock record – no more no less. Perfectly produced by Mike Slamer, who adds enough bells and whistles to make it interesting and sometimes challenging to the general ethos of what a melodic rock record should sound like. However, every note on this album was written and recorded to please the fans and I believe they have done that with some outstanding songs and inspired performances. Terry Brock adds backing vocals, which give the harmonies even more depth. A brilliant album that will please just about everybody.

The Sun Will Rise


Eric Martin - Love Is Alive/Works Of 1985-2010 - [2010]

Eric Martin's talents as a vocalist and a songwriter have been highly evaluated since his solo debut back in 1985, and this was even before he joined the super rock band, MR BIG. The year 2010 marks his 25th Anniversary as a solo singer, and Sony Music Japan International will release his new compilation album "Love Is Alive 〜Works of 1985-2010〜"on September 8th. The album includes 14 songs - 7 songs highlighting Eric's 25 years of his magnificent career in the music business, plus 3 brand new songs and 3 rare bonus tracks. ¡ Amazing album !

Union Mac - Lost In Attraction - [2007]

Make Pretend


Michael Bolton - The Hunger - [1987]

¡ Another great album by Michael Bolton !, filled with great songs, solid production and the superb vocal work of Mr.Bolton, maybe the last album with AOR feelings by the magnificient vocalist. a record full of great and emotional songs.

Heaven And Hell


HB - Frozen Inside - [2008]

Frozen Inside is symphonic and gothic metal with a Christian message. The songs are layered with atmospheric keyboards and thick guitars. There are also plenty of orchestral parts with strings and choirs. HB's style is similar to groups like Within Temptation and Nightwish. ¡ Strong album for all Symphonic fans !

It Is Time

Houston - s/t - [2010]

HOUSTON are firing off classic 80s AOR in the vein of Journey and Survivor. The duo courtesy of Hampus Erix and Freddie Allan got help in the studio by cracks like Tommy Denander, Mats Olausson and Thomas Vikström plus Ricky Delin (Rainmaker) at the production helm and the result is simply stunning – pure and classy 80s flavoured AOR stuff nexto to Bad Habit, H.e.a.t., Alien, and Treat. Probably the best AOR album of this year, excellent melodic rhythms, fantastic keyboard work and outstanding catchy songs. ¡ Brilliant !

Truth Slips

Kiske/Somerville - s/t - [2010]

Superb collaboration between the powerful voices of Michael Kiske and Amanda Somerville, An album that no need any comment. the cover says it all.



Issa - Sign Of Angels - [2010]

ISSA (Isabell Oversveen) is a 26 year old singer from Oslo, Norway, and she’s not a rookie.
The woman has been kicking around the music scene since she was 17, working with many local bands and record studios and winning much praise and support from both the Norwegian and international music industry. Now she has partnered with a group of veteran musicians to put out what could be one of the best debut albums of the year. With songwriting help from Thomas Vikström (TALK OF THE TOWN) and Sören Kronqvist (CRASH THE SYSTEM) among others, and some killer musicians such as Peter Huss (Shining), drummer Uli Kusch (Masterplan, Helloween), keyboardist Tim Larsson (Nick Lachey), and bassist Magnus Noberg (Dionysus), Issa has managed to create a superb album which offers soaring and instantly likeable hooklines, solid guitar riffs and a crisp sound.The woman sings with enthusiasm and style, and will bring a smile to the face of even the most jaded rock fan. Musically solid, slickly produced, very radio-friendly, incredibly upbeat and positive without being vapid or sugary, "Sign Of Angels" is a winner. One of the Melodic albums of the year.

Kamelot - Poetry For The Poisoned - [2010]

Kamelot's newest studio endeavor, Poetry For the Poisoned, is probably their most ambitious and diverse studio recording to date, is slower-paced, never really soaring past mid-tempo, and there's a lot of space. Riffs are not overly cluttered by speeding double bass or unnecessary shredding,Definitely recommended if you want to hear a good, deep, and slightly melancholy power/progressive metal album that rests on the strength of the songwriting and the cool, confident skill of each band member.

Hunter´s Season

Camandula s/t - [2010]

First album of this band from Puerto Rico, they play a soft Melodic Rock with Spanish Lyrics in the style of Coda or Sangre Azul but a little softer, good songwriting, nice songs and a pretty good singer, the production could be better but still sounds pretty good.

No Es Amor
