Suzi Quatro
”No Soul/No Control”
SPV
just some standard female fronted rock/hard rock… can’t say it’s in the metal realm… maybe a bit of a blues hard rock vibe.

Periphery
”Blood Eagle”
3DOT Recordings
Just a single, but this is some cool crazy tech death metalcore type stuff… I can’t say it’s too much different of what I know this band for… and that’s good!

John Diva and The Rockets of Love
Mama Said Rock is Dead
SPV
This has that early 90’s hard rock/aor thing going on… pretty good if you were around for that kind of stuff (like me)… nowadays, not sure if the kids will be going for this stuff… hehe

Avantasia
Moonglow

This first single, “The Raven Child” track 4 features Hansi Kursch and Jorn Lande… can it get better for power metal vocalists? This 11 minute epic has these two guests and Tobias Sammet on lead vox (he’s the leader of this supergroup project thing) Great symphonic power metal stuff.

Visions Of Atlantis
The Deep And The Dark (Live)
Napalm Records
Another epic power metal band… this one is a live album of their latest tour… Good solid euro female/metal vox power metal… and a great live production.

Delain

This one sounds like some classic metal with a little bit of a power metal vocal style… musically it’s a good solid general just “metal” sound

Just a single so far, but damn, these guys can just really do no wrong, fast catchy grooving thrash with Blitz’ unmistakeable vocals. Bring on the Overkill!

Walls Of Blood
Imperium
