Downtown Association is the outcome of some dead-serious problem bastards weirdly met under unknown situations and formed an urban-toxic rock n roll ensemble.
On our streets you can find the mastermind of late-night-destruction George Matikas(Shock Absorber) harassing his guitar to the rhythm of the city, beating 'round the bush and onto
the drumset Tasos D.(Prassein Aloga) turns up the heat and raises the volume passing it to Nik Danielos(Bend for Eleven,Blue Flames) who breaks his bones for the cause while making it happen , leading nowhere but to nothing , the architect of decay and the frontman of the horde Dean Mess (W.A.N.T.E.D.)
Started as George's nightmare and later founded on the same ground with the rest of the associates sworn to raise hell after messing with a few tunes.
The debut album 'City Guide' was recorded in the beginning of 2016 and brought a first circle of attention with lots of good reviews.

of the American singer Tony Harnell with the band’s master mind, guitarist Ronni LeTekro.
Tony rejoined TNT in early 2016 after his brief stint with Skid Row. TNT soon signed a recording deal for a studio album with Frontiers and also agreed to a live appearance at the legendary
label festival in Milan, Italy.
The band were in fine form and delivered a great set full of classic songs lifted from timeless albums like “Knights Of The New Thunder”, “Intuition”, “Tell No Tales”, and “My Religion”.
A fitting testament to a great band and one of the last performances of the band with Harnell on vocals, “Encore” is a release that cannot be missed by fans of the band.

Bringing Rock Back
Rock out to our debut EP !
A five song CD in a jewel case with lyrics on the inside booklet.
W.A.l.K.E.R. released their first single "Time To Party" in June 2017, which was mixed by producer Michael Wagener who has worked with bands such as Metallica, Ozzy
Osbourne Skid Row and many more. The single reached number 2 in the Irish rock charts and received air play in multiple countries such as Ireland, UK, USA, Australia
and more. This propelled the band back into the studio to record their debut EP “Bringing Rock Back” which was also mixed by Wagener. The Result is a smokin' hot EP with a blend of classic melodic rock and metal sound that defines W.A.L.K.E.R. with style.
"Time To Party" kicks off the album with a punch in the nuts with this party anthem song sure to heat up your next rock gathering. The jam reminds me of Skid Row back in the bands prime. "Bringing Rock Back" will be a fav for Babylon Shakes fans with the vintage sounding guitar, vocals and choruses. The song has some great guitar throughout and a fat solo to boost. "Dreaming" slows down the flow with a great hard beat and smooth lyrics, in this feel good jam. I really liked the guitar lead and vocals in the song. "She's On Fire" picks up the grind and is a great rocker, the jam would also be killer for the dance floor. "When It Rains" was my favorite track on the album, because of the mean metal groove, band vocals and song lyrics and really had me banging along till the end. I'll most def be spinning this album with some heavy rotation on every one of these killer tracks! Superb album, guitars, drumming, lead and backing vocals throughout. I Can't wait to hear W.A.L.K.E.R.S. full length album sure to follow!
Every song on the album hits our 5 star killer rating, giving "Bringing Rock Back" a perfect 5.0 Star recommendation for all you metal heads out there
looking for a new band and killer sound!

Face The Music
Frontiers Music s.r.l.
BURNING RAIN, a hard rock band founded by guitarist extraordinaire Doug Aldrich (REVOLUTION SAINTS, THE DEAD DAISIES, EX-WHITESNAKE, DIO)and vocalist Keith St. John (MONTROSE, KINGDOM COME), are pleased to announce the release of their fourth studio album, Face the Music, on March 22nd via Frontiers Music SRL.
When asked why the band chose to release "Midnight Train" as the first single, Aldrich explained, "it's been some time since the last BR record, and we wanted to come out swinging! "Midnight Train" encompasses the sound of BURNING RAIN. It sounds fresh and heavy. I thought it was a cool lead off track to reintroduce the band. People normally have different ideas about favorite songs and there are a number of tracks that could have been first, but we just went with 'Midnight Train.'"
"'Midnight Train's' message, albeit fully ensconced in carnality, is about wanting something so brutally bad when you can't have it," added St. John. "The main character here is basically a deeply tortured soul during all the daytime hours. The phallic likening to the train and its track along with the blackness, the bed of nails, and the cravings of the night are meant to further fortify the extremity of sexual addiction. Doug had all the basic music together including bass, drums, and all when he first played me a demo of the song. I loved it immediately. The first experimental vocal track I scatted out had the basic framework for the chorus, which we both felt had good potential, but the original verse began with a higher, bluesier part that seemed to not quite fit. After I fashioned a new verse with a lower, more growly approach, we both felt it really complimented the chorus and we knew this track was in good standing!"
BURNING RAIN was established in 1998 by guitarist Doug Aldrich and vocalist Keith St. John. After meeting through mutual friends, Aldrich and St. John commenced work on what would eventually become their self-titled debut album. The 1999 record established BURNING RAIN as a hungry yet seasoned group of musicians. Although the album was limited in its release, it did receive rave reviews from fans and critics alike for their take on heavy, blues-y hard rock. The following year, BURNING RAIN released the follow up, "Pleasure To Burn" which showed a matured Aldrich-St John collaboration that gained even higher praise than the first album.
In 2001, Aldrich joined DIO and later departed in 2003 as he was approached by David Coverdale to join a newly reformed Whitesnake, while St. John joined forces with guitar legend Ronnie Montrose. While still in Whitesnake, Aldrich started working on new BURNING RAIN music, which saw the light of day in 2013 as the album "Epic Obsession". Their third release was again met with enthusiasm from fans and critics alike. Aldrich would later leave Whitesnake and join The Dead Daisies and Revolution Saints, which left BURNING RAIN on an extended hiatus.
Now, finally a new album is ready for release! Face the Music is a blues driven hard rock record which is truly a tour-de-force. With a renewed lineup featuring the amazing Blas Elias (SLAUGHTER) on drums and bassist Brad Lang (Y&T),the album evokes the sound of the classic 70's hard rock scene, but also stays true to the Burning Rain sound.
One thing is for certain, BURNING RAIN has made the wait for new music well worth it.
