PFM signs worldwide deal with InsideOutMusic

PFM (Premiata Forneria Marconi), the most famous Italian rock band in the world and InsideOutMusic are proud to announce their partnership to release the band’s upcoming albums worldwide!

PFM began writing their new opus, entitled “Emotional Tattoos”, in 2016, started recording in early 2017 and are about to finalize it in July! The worldwide release is currently planned for late October.

Drummer and singer Franz Di Cioccio commented: "We are delighted to be a part of the InsideOutMusic family! We have created a powerful record that will bring the sound and creative energy of PFM all over the world."

Patrick Djivas, bass player and co-author of the music, added: "I am very excited to sign with such an important record company. I’m looking forward to the opportunity of playing our new songs for our audience all over the world.”

Thomas Waber, Label Manager and Head of A&R at InsideOutMusic says: “We are really excited to be working with this legendary Italian band. Their passion and fire still burns very bright!”

PFM is a very eclectic and exuberant musical group with a distinctive style that impressively combines rock, progressive, and classical music into one mesmerizing sonic entity. Formed in 1971, the band quickly gained a prominent place on the international scene by making it to the Billboard charts (for 1973’s “Photos Of Ghosts”), and winning a Gold record in Japan while constantly ruling the charts in their home country until today. Recently, PFM were honored with position #50 in the “UK Classic Rock Hall of Fame” of the 100 most important artists in the world.

“Emotional Tattoos”, PFM’s new album, marks the return of the band’s trademark sound after two more experimental releases: “PFM in Classic, from Mozart to Celebration”, dedicated to leading European classical music composers; and “States of Imagination”, a journey of sound and images comprising eight short movies, each with a different theme and atmosphere.
“Emotional Tattoos” finds its inspiration in a compassionate and wide look at the predicament of our planet and humanity as well as on the relationship between music and dreaming. The album’s sound is energetic, imaginative and encompassing, inviting all listeners to really sink into its musical facets and stories. These are not just songs: these are emotional tattoos you can feel on your skin.

Legendary rock vocalist Graham Bonnet is back with a new band and an exciting new album titled 'The Book'.

The 'Graham Bonnet Band', features of course Graham Bonnet vocals, Beth-Ami Heavenstone on bass, Joey Tafolla on lead guitar, ex-Alcatrazz man Jimmy Waldo on keys, and Mark Benquechea on Drums. 
  
They promise a powerful set-list showcasing Graham's extraordinary career performing the songs the way you know them. 
Born in Skegness, England (December 1947), Bonnet enjoyed his first chart success with The Marbles, his first single with them – ‘Only One Woman’, penned by the Bee Gees – becoming a top 5 UK hit in 1968.  After a spell recording advertising jingles, he appeared in the 1974 British comedy film ‘Three for All’ as lead singer of a fictional band called Billy Beethoven, receiving a rave review for his performance! Bonnet’s subsequent career has seen him work with some of the best musicians in the business, including guitar virtuosos Ritchie Blackmore Michael Schenker, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai and Chris Impellitteri... drummers Cozy Powell and Ted McKenna, bassists Roger Glover and Chris Glen and keyboard player Don Airey. 

He is well known as the voice on a number of classic heavy rock albums including Rainbow’s ‘Down to Earth’ (1979), Michael Schenker Group’s ‘Assault Attack’ (1982), Alcatrazz’s ‘No Parole for Rock ‘n’ Roll’ (1983) and ‘Disturbing the Peace’ (1985). 
Rainbow’s ‘Down to Earth’ spawned two hit singles, a cover of Russ Ballard’s ‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ and ‘All Night Long’. During his time with Rainbow, Bonnet also headlined the inaugural Monsters of Rock Festival at Castle Donington in the UK. Singles from the first two studio Alcatrazz albums, ‘Island in the Sun’ (from ‘No Parole …’ and ‘God Blessed Video’ (from ‘Disturbing the Peace’), became staples of MTV, then in its infancy. 

Bonnet has maintained an active solo presence throughout most of his career, releasing albums periodically including the eponymous ‘Graham Bonnet’ (1977), which was a hit in Australia, ‘No Bad Habits’ (1978), ‘Line-Up’ (1981), ‘Here Comes the Night’ (1991), ‘Underground’ (1997) and ‘The Day I Went Mad’ (1999). The single ‘Night Games’ (from the ‘Line Up’ album) reached number 6 in the UK charts. 
He has recorded and toured with a wide-range of other artists and released albums with bands such as Impellitteri, Forcefield, Blackthorne and Japanese legends Anthem. 
Bonnet has a powerful and distinctive vocal style and, indeed, a distinctive image – preferring to let the music, rather than the conventional heavy metal look, do the talking.
The Graham Bonnet Band has spent the last 18 months touring solidly around the world, with performances at several major European festivals including an acclaimed set at Sweden Rock 2016. 
The debut Graham Bonnet Band album 'The Book' sees Graham returning in fine form, with an album that is his best in decades. 
11 new tracks that will blow heavy rock fans away!
Also included with the new album is a 16 track cd of re-recorded classic tracks from Graham's career.

REVIEW: Synaptik "Justify & Reason" Heart Of Steel Records 2017

"Justify & Reason" this is the second album by the well-respected British Progressive Metal band. 
And I am sure it will shake your neighbourhood around.

SYNAPTIK are not new in the Progressive Metal fastening cause they already count five years of existence and the excellent debut "The mechanisms of consequence". 
Those of you that already know them you are lucky, for those of you that you don't know them prepare to be kicked. Real and innovative prog metal is back. Five songs: straight, catchy and packed with melodies, which can be remembered from the first listen but also progressive enough to get attention from other musicians interest. 
Those guys know how to rock and kick some seriously asses listen the masterpiece titled"Human/Inhuman".
Yeah, to tell you the truth this release really blow my head off and make my head banging for several hours. 
I believe Synaptik could make the big 'BOOM' in the European prog metal scene.
Overall "Justify & Reason" is something that can't miss from any 'real' metal fans, and its also something that all heavy metal fans should have to their on turntable, if love their vinyl version.
Avialble on CD and on digital in any device.

I shouldn't forget to mention the amazing cover art, that is one of the best prog metal covers I have ever seen and completes perfectly the whole package. 
This is another proof of how professionally the band works.

Digital track list:
1. The Incredible Machine 
2. Human / Inhuman
3. Conscience
4. White Circles
5. Esc Ctrl

Here is a taste of what to expect from the new album with the lyrics song release ‘White Circles’ which shows the band in their element in this powerful new video:

The BELLADONNA retrospective mixtape, released on cassette only!

The 20 songs on the "BELLADONNA MIXTAPE" - a double album, comprising 2 sides of a C90 tape! - are cherry-picked from the band's musical journey so far, and include "Foreverland" (included in the "Best Rock Song" category of the 2009 Grammy Awards ballot), "Let There Be Light" (written and recorded with legendary UK composer Michael Nyman), "The God Below" (featured on the International TV Spot for the Hollywood blockbuster 2015 movie "Minions") - plus their as yet unreleased noir cover of Del Shannon's classic 1961 track "Runaway".

The release is a limited edition (available for one month only, starting from the 10th of January) and - in authentic 70/80s mixtape style! - the tracklist on the cassette cover is handwritten, in this case by BELLADONNA's singer Luana Caraffa!

"Our musical and recording aesthetic has always been totally analog, so our retrospective album just HAD to be on cassette!" says Luana "And we must confess that when we played back our cassette mixtape we were amazed by how wonderfully analog and beautifully organic the songs sounded coming off the tape!"

"Nick Hornby in 'High Fidelity' said that making a mixtape was like writing a letter" adds the band's guitarist Dani Macchi. "and we absolutely agree - making mixtapes was an art form that flourished in an Era when Music truly mattered to everyone. Well, Music still truly matters to us, and to all our friends and fans - and this mixtape is our personal letter to them all!"
