Lee (Ozzy Osbourne, Badlands) returned with his new band Red Dragon Cartel in 2014. Their debut album featured several special guests, including Maria Brink from In This Moment, Jeremy Spencer from Five Finger Death Punch and Robin Zander from Cheap Trick, but the plan was always to create an artistic vehicle for Jake to bring back his own style of music and playing that has earned him so many admirers. His comeback was greeted with enthusiasm from media and fans alike and the virtuoso guitarist is now back again to grace the rock world with his unbridled skill! With a talented band that features bassist Anthony Esposito (Lynch Mob), drummer Phil Varone (Saigon Kick, Skid Row) and singer Darren Smith (Harem Scarem), Jake has delivered the album fans have been eager to hear ever since the dissolution of Badlands. ‘Patina’ is a definitive statement of Jake’s unbelievable skills, with the record returning to the bluesy, fierce hard rock sound of Badlands, updated with a monster production from Esposito and a perfect mix courtesy of Max Norman, whose relationship with Jake dates back to his days with Ozzy Osbourne. Get ready, ‘Patina’ is coming….Jake E. Lee is BACK!

The new record includes eleven superb new Ratt ‘n Roll songs written by Pearcy together with guitarist Erik Ferentinos that will please fans of his last solo effort, ‘Smash’, as well as RATT fanatics. The tracklisting flows perfectly and takes the listener on an audio journey through blistering rockers mixed with slower, more measured numbers. As with the RATT catalogue, this is a record that showcases the art of the riff! Erik Ferentinos is truly Pearcy’s secret weapon, as evidenced by the mind-bending solos on display throughout ‘View To A Thrill’. With over 15 million records sold with RATT, there is no slowing Pearcy down. An accomplished songwriter with credits on all that band’s releases, he is also a producer, composer, owner/product creator of Mic Knuckles (hands free mic holder), and has also been involved in recording songs for TV, movies, ESPN2 and NHRA Drag Racing Series over the years.

The ‘Illuminati’ is said to be an elite, secret organisation of world leaders, business authorities, innovators, artists and other influential members of the global society, a coalition that unites influencers of all political, religious and geographical backgrounds to supposedly further the prosperity of the human species as a whole. This album brings TEN’s atmospheres and sounds and weaves them into a reel of mysteries, esoteric tales and elaborate spells, evoking embers that spark the imagination courtesy of the classic songwriting of vocalist Gary Hughes. Following the success of their most recent albums, from ‘Albion’ thru to ‘Gothica’, Hughes is joined once again by guitarists Dann Rosingana, Steve Grocott and John Halliwell, along with bass player Steve McKenna, keyboard maestro Darrel Treece-Birch and drummer Max Yates. On their fourth outing as a collective unit, the musicians have raised the bar even higher on an album that is full of stunning guitar work over a rich keyboard, bass and drum tapestry with Hughes’ rich vocals once again bringing the nuances of the intricate lyrics to life. ‘Illuminati’ is produced by Hughes and mixed by Dennis Ward in an ongoing association ever since Ward mixed the group’s 2011 album ‘Stormwarning’, an alliance that guarantees a stunning sound and production. Audio : ‘Jericho’ bit.ly/2OmSFN6 HOLTER – ’Vlad The Impaler’ Initially born as a one-off musical extravaganza between two Norwegian metal and hard rock giants, Trond Holter (ex-Wig Wam) and vocalist Jorn Lande, the duo’s Dracula Rock Opera has now morphed into a full-time musical project with guitarist, producer and songwriter Holter at the helm. While the original plan was to leave 2015’s collaborative ‘Swing Of Death’ as a unique one-off recording, the success that Holter subsequently enjoyed in staging the album as a musical in Norwegian theatres convinced him that a follow-up was not only possible, but perhaps even mandatory. He was already sitting on plenty of new material and felt inspired to tell more stories of Dracula and other vampires that did not find a home in the storyline of that first album. With an outstanding line-up featuring singers Nils K Rue (Pagan’s Mind) and Eva Iselin Erichsen, Bernt Jansen on bass, Per Morten Bergseth on drums and Erling Henanger on keyboards, ‘Vlad The Impaler’ starts where ‘Swing Of Death’ left off. It is an album that gets straight to the point while utilising diverse musical landscapes and it includes memorable melodic songs in a similar style to its predecessor. Think Savatage meets Meat Loaf meets Queen meets Alice Cooper with contemporary hard rock in the mix and the listener will have a sense of what is in store. Video : ‘I’ll Die For You’ bit.ly/2oIsAc1 Audio : ‘Worlds On Fire’ bit.ly/2CapEwQ NORDIC UNION – ’Second Coming’ Nordic Union is the successful collaboration between singer Ronnie Atkins of the Danish hard rock institution Pretty Maids and the Swedish songwriter and producer Erik Martensson of Eclipse and W.E.T. fame. The partnership between the two Scandinavians came about in 2015 when Atkins was sent a bunch of demos put together for him by Martensson, thus sparking a brand new musical alliance that culminated in the self-titled Nordic Union debut album in early 2016. Musically, the duo presented a hybrid of the more melodic aspects of Pretty Maids mixed with elements of Eclipse, Talisman and W.E.T., yet still possessing its own identity. This follow-up record screams quality, with a high standard of songwriting, faultless musicianship and top notch production, crisp and clear as a bell. Atkins continues to improve as he deftly demonstrates throughout that he knows how to use his voice effectively at any given point in a song. Heavy riffs, soaring vocals, thumping beats and a grandstanding ballad…this album has it all and flows perfectly with songs that are memorable, rocking and, of course, melodic.

Exactly two years prior, they had released ‘Suffer More’ to much acclaim, following which they had set about perfecting their live show. Effortlessly mixing a heavy blues stomp with a melancholy tuneful edge, the record recalled Clutch, The Allman Brothers, Screaming Trees and Led Zeppelin – to name just a few. This was the record that brought them to the attention of Frontiers Records and the label is now reissuing the album to make it more widely available. Doomsday Outlaw will continue to tour for the remainder of 2018.
