NEW ALBUM RELEASES OUT 23.03.18

W.E.T. – ’Earthrage’

W.E.T. is built around the talents of Robert Säll (the ‘W’ from Work of Art), Erik Mårtensson 

(the ‘E’ from Eclipse) and Jeff Scott Soto (the ’T’ from Talisman), plus Eclipse guitarist

Magnus Henriksson and drummer Robban Bäck. ‘Earthrage’ is the band’s third studio album and

arrives in the midst of creative highs for Mårtensson (a highly successful Eclipse album and recent

Ammunition album), Soto (a well received solo album plus the debut of supergroup Sons Of Apollo)

and Säll (having just completed production for a record with Steve Overland of FM while also

working on the highly anticipated fourth record by Work of Art). The self titled debut W.E.T. album

in 2009 was one of those rare occasions when a band created by the vision of a record label

executive actually managed to create a genuine wave of enthusiasm and interest from fans and

media alike to the point where it went beyond the band’s own expectations and pushed the

musicians involved to raise their game to new levels. ‘Rise Up’ (2013) was the logical consequence

of the success of the first album and was followed up with a number of live shows, including several

festival appearances. The key element to the success of W.E.T. has been the ability of the band to

craft Melodic Hard Rock of the highest order and drive the genre into the future. Prepare for this

next step in this tremendous band’s evolution!

BULLETBOYS – ’From Out Of The Skies’

The new album by BulletBoys is preceded with a ten date UK tour (see list below). The first single from 

the record, ‘D-Evil’, is already available and features guest vocals from Jesse Hughes of Eagles of

Death Metal. BulletBoys vocalist, guitarist, and founding member Marq Torien says of the song:

“Jesse and I had an instant bond when we met and he did an outstanding job collaborating on the song,

with his vocals a welcome contribution.” The album was recorded at the Foo Fighters’ Studio 606.

“Writing and recording ‘From Out Of The Skies’ was a humbling experience and recording the album

at their studio was unbelievable and magical,” he continues. “Dave Grohl’s music got me through a very

difficult time, so from day one I knew that we were in the right home to record. I was privileged enough

to use one of Dave’s acoustic guitars to record with, along with a hand picked drum set by Taylor Hawkins.

I appreciate the opportunity to record there.” BulletBoys began as a collection of musicians from

high profile bands such as King Kobra and Ratt. Forming in 1987 at the very peak of the Los Angeles

glam metal movement and possessing a pedigree that most other bands would have killed for, they swiftly

captured the attention of music fans around the world while front man Marq Torien emerged as one of the

most underrated vocalists of the era. Unlike many other glam rockers of the day, BulletBoys fused hard

rock and blues rather than being pure hair metal based. Compared to the likes of Aerosmith, AC/DC

and especially Van Halen, record labels flocked to them and the band soon received their first major

label contract. Over the course of three decades and periodic album releases since an initial flurry that

included the platinum selling self titled debut and its follow-up ‘Freakshow’, Torien has kept his band

relevant to this day and they remain in heavy rotation on rock and metal radio and TV channels worldwide.

NO HOT ASHES – ’No Hot Ashes’

Originally formed in 1983, No Hot Ashes were influenced by UFO, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, 

Journey, Foreigner, Thin Lizzy and other Classic Rock/AOR acts of that era. They issued their first single,

‘She Drives Me Crazy’, in 1986 and supported bands such as Mama’s Boys, Magnum, Girlschool and 

Steve Marriott’s Packet of Three. The group signed a record deal with GWR Records in early 1988, 

joining Motorhead, Girlschool and Hawkwind on that label’s roster. They also relocated to London in order

to be closer to the company and made an album before the end of that year. However, delays then

occurred in getting it released and by the end of 1990 the band had called it a day and the record was

shelved. That should have been it, but in September 2013 NHA reformed for a one-off tribute gig which

then snowballed. Performing what can be described as Classic Melodic Rock with a contemporary

twist, they have been delighting new fans in the years since with their hook-laden guitar and keyboard

driven songs, supporting Aerosmith, Foreigner, UFO and Scorpions along the way and touring the UK

with FM and Romeo’s Daughter. They have also played at major festivals such as Hard Rock Hell AOR,

Download, London Calling, Ramblin’ Man, Steelhouse, Rockingham and the Frontiers Rock Festival in

Milan, Italy, going down a storm each time. NHA are currently preparing to hit the road in support of what is

now a very eagerly anticipated debut album, with shows planned for late spring and summer 2018.

Unfortunately for the group, the pleasure of releasing the album is also tinged with great sadness as

founding member, bass player and close friend Paul Boyd tragically lost a brave battle with cancer in 2017.

Paul appears on the album and the band are respectfully dedicating its release to his memory.

L.A. GUNS – ’Made In Milan’

After more than a decade apart, Tracii Guns and Phil Lewis reunited under the L.A. Guns’ banner and in 

2017 released one of the most critically praised albums in their catalogue with ‘The Missing Peace’.

Landing on several international sales charts, the most important critics (ie. the fans) also agreed with the

consensus of how truly great the album is. With a new found energy and the enthusiasm of the then

imminent release of ‘The Missing Peace’, L.A. Guns stormed onto the stage in Milan and took no prisoners,

packing the set front to back with stone cold anthems and soon to be classics. This current incarnation of

the band has been touring non-stop and the cohesiveness of the unit, not to mention Phil’s unique

vocals and Guns’ mind-bending guitar playing, are on full display here. A must hear and listen for all

fans of the band, both new and old school!
