Temple of the Stars is the new band of Tobias Tåg who is a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter from Korsholm, located at the west coast of Finland.
This music is sonically nocturnal and melodic, with a lot of folk elements presented within an atmospheric rock context. It´s a mix of folk, rock, prog, and metal that´s going to appeal to a wide audience. The songs are catchy but they also have a sense of mystique.
Nightspirit album was written and recorded by Tobias Tåg and Co-Produced and Managed by Mathias Lillmåns (frontman of Finntroll and Magenta Harvest). The lyrics on the record were written by Thomas Finholm and the bass tracks was laid out by Niklas Norrgrann.

Hard rock titans collide for THE END MACHINE
A brand-new project that features classic-era DOKKEN members George Lynch, Jeff Pilson, and Mick Brown as well as current WARRANT singer Robert Mason.
The band released their self-titled debut on March 22nd 2019 via Frontiers Music SRL.
GENRE: Hard Rock | Melodic Metal
FOR FANS OF: Dokken, Warrant, Lynch Mob, Badlands, Sweet & Lynch
Surely, some fans may be wondering to themselves, isn’t this just Dokken without Don Dokken? “Musically, of course there's bound to be moments that will be reminiscent of Dokken. That's only logical,” says bassist Jeff Pilson. “But, my guess is there will be less of that than people would expect. Some people who've heard it say they think it's closer to Lynch Mob than Dokken, but really it is pretty much its own thing. We allowed ourselves to get a little deeper than either of those projects really have, while still staying extremely melodic and not being afraid of good old-fashioned guitar rock. Maybe Lynch Mob, a bit of Dokken, but then some 70's guitar rock added in. George [Lynch] is playing fantastic on this…very inspired. Everyone is really, but George covers some new territory here and it's very cool. Plus, the songs as compositions took on their own life, especially adding Robert [Mason] to the writing. That's what I'm most proud of, is the way this stands on its own. It doesn't step on our legacy together one bit, but it has it’s own personality and I think that's important.”
The End Machine Album Review
"Leap Of Faith' kicks off the album with a groovy rock melody spilling some great work on all points from the band. Great vocals, guitar, strong bass-line and steady drums come together to form a really cool jam. "Hold Me Down" turns up the rhythm a little bit with stronger vocals and a faster beat from the bass and drums accompanied by various guitar rhythms and soloing. "No Game" starts off nice and hard; it's presence brings a harder and deeper feel really cranking out the vocals and picking up the beat. One of my favorites on the album with each member really pushing the limits on the song; it's a solid rocker! "Bulletproof" is also a heavy jam that comes out strong and drops into a nice heavy flow; also a fav on the album having really liked the feel and the lyrics to the song. "Ride It" races off from the start; a faced paced high octane track that'll get your head bopping! "Burn The Truth" comes out with a slower beat and smooth flowing lyrics, backing vocals and deep tones from the band. The song keeps a nice rock feel without losing any momentum from the previous tracks and is a great fit into the album showing some versatility from the group. "Hard Road" picks up a nice pace and has a nice bluesy bottom with spunky lyrics and funky guitar work throughout. "Alive Today" an up beat track keeps the beat and rhythm flowing on the feel good track. "Line Of Division" brings a different feel into the album with it's strong chorus and vocal front end. The track really rocks and has some great lyrics as well as great work from the band throughout. "Sleeping Voices" though a slower song on the album is a beautiful song with some great rocky moments throughout the jam. "Life Is Love Is Music" Breaks out with a funky - bluesy beat and rocks steady to close out the album. The song is a real feel-good track that brings the album to an end that leaves you feeling good and fulfilled, stuffed full of funky and blues heavy metal love!
10/10 based on overall album | full of head bopping - fist swingin good time rock n roll fun!
“This is decidedly not me ‘stapled’ onto a DOKKEN record,” adds Mason. “I wouldn't have been involved if that was the intent. Fans will hear bits of our styles in this collection of songs, and while reminiscent signatures are undeniable, The End: machine was purposely built to stand apart and on its own merit.”

Raised on a diet of Dogs D'Amour, Cheap Trick, The Dead Boys, Hanoi Rocks and other like minded outcasts
Washington and Hollywood based glam punkers PROPHETS OF ADDICTION's third album - and debut for HiVolMusic - was initially intended to be a full blown, knock you on your ass ride
through the mid 70s. Due to drummer, Wayne Stokley's inability to participate in the recordings, however, the stripped down duo of Led vocalist / bassist Lesli Sanders and lead guitarist, G.G. have decided to deliver an unplugged, raw and emotional set of songs, while waiting for Stokley to be able to return to action.
Lesli Sanders – Lead vocals, guitars, keyboards, piano | G.G. – Guitars, backing vocals
While the world awaits the next PROPHETS OF ADDICTION full on glam punk N roll assault, Nothing but the Truth shows that although you take the velocity down a notch or two, the power the emotion and the truth is still there in full force.

PROPHETS OF ADDICTION BIOGRAPHY
The decision to make an entirely unplugged album for their third release didn’t come easy for Lesli Sanders, front man and bassist of fast rising glam / punk n roll act PROPHETS OF ADDICTION. “We were set to begin recording our new full band album in February of last year,” explains Sanders. “… and then we ran into a problem.” That “problem was that drummer and beloved band mate Wayne Stokely had fallen ill. And not just with the stomach flu. “We were set to go on a tour in the spring of 2017 when Wayne told us he wasn’t feeling well and didn’t think he’d be able healthy enough to do the run. So, G.G. and I decided to do the first leg as an unplugged duo, both of us figuring on Wayne being back in shape when we returned. I kept in touch with him throughout the tour and things just went from worse to worst for him. Because of complications with a serious sinus issue he had temporarily lost his vision and to top it all off he was diagnosed with MS. We were devastated, of course, and decided to put off the planned full band rock record and G.G. and I decided to do the Nothing but the Truth album with just the two of us while we wait for Wayne to return to form.”
Produced by Sanders himself at Whine Cellar Studios in Tacoma, WA and mixed and mastered by Phil Soussan (member of Ozzy Osbourne’s band, Billy Idol, Beggars and Thieves and more) at Blue Cat Tales in Hollywood, Nothing but the Truth is ten songs that are given the acoustic treatment in their own inimitable raw, dirty and honest way.
"Normally I don't like to describe what the songs are about or where I was coming from when writing them, I take great pride in the lyrics which I feel is a lost artform. I usually allow the listener to draw their own conclusions. What may seem to be a long lost love in the traditional sense may actually be a love hate relationship with a drug or addiction problem for example."
"American Dream" however is pretty straightforward and my thinking with this one is that my desire and drive for me to do what I do and that is music is just as strong for me today as it was when I began many years ago as a teen. "Seasons will change but I'll stay the same, I'm gonna rearrange the American Dream. "
"Return the Smile" is a very simple song with a powerful meaning, it was written in a time of deep despair and drug addiction several years ago. It was a way of me saying I don't want to live this life anymore "I'm gonna put a smile back on your face, I'm gonna make you proud just to say that you know me and you'll stand behind me always be behind me, cuz you will be the strength that drives me when I know your all behind me."
In reality I was writing many of the songs while still living in Hollywood struggling with my addictions. Songs of remorse, regrets and wanting to escape what had become of me. After living in Hollywood for 18 years and playing with several influential bands and touring the world it was time to head home and get my life back on track. After doing so and after a few years passed it was time to rock, time to get serious and do this, the year was 2010. The first recording was "Babylon Boulevard" (2011) Cargo Records produced by myself and mixed and by Phil Soussan. The recording received rave reviews by the press:
"This is possibly the best album of its genre for many a moon if only G N'R still made records like this the world would be a better place."ubberrock.co.uk
#2 CD of 2010 Adam Kulkey Metal Hammer Magazine.
"Don't let their glitter image fool you, for this bunch join the dots between Alice Cooper and the Ramones."www.DMME.ne
After several years of non stop touring in Europe, Australia and the USA it was time to start working on another recording "Reunite the Sinners (2015 MIghty Music) (Bickee Music Japan) . This time legendary Poison guitarist C.C. even played the guitar solos on the single Kings and Queens, making good on a promise to me that if I would get sober he would play on my record. Once again the record received rave reviews and the band hit the road performing hundreds of shows a year including major festival dates.
Raised on a diet of 70’s and 80s anti-conventional acts such as the Ramones, Hanoi Rocks, Bowie, New York Dolls, Sweet, MC5, the Dead Boys and Lords of the New Church to name a few, Prophets of Addiction unabashedly wear their influences on their collective sleeves. Lesli says, “I loved the concept of a "band"a team of brothers making music, making life, and living it as if nothing else mattered. Never trying to be something other than what you are and what you are was just so cool."

Alive is a new hard rock band that combines the freshness of its debut album with the tradition of rock.
Indeed, the quintet aims to keep the hard&heavy sounds ‘alive’, which are re-proposed in a modern way and current topics.
The band has been founded by the guitarist Giuseppe Ricciolino but the project has come to life after having met the singer Marco Patrocchi. Shortly after it has involved the bassist Mattia Tibuzzi (Engine Driven Cultivators), and finally the group was completed with the drummer Dario Di Pasquale (Setanera) and the rhythmic guitarist Simone Aversano (ex Thrillz).

THE QUIREBOYS - Rock And Roll Icons Release new album "Amazing Disgrace", 1ST Single & Lyric Video "Seven Deadly Sins" out now
For Fans Of
Thunder | The Dogs D' Amour | Little Angels | Obsession | Wildhearts | Von Groove | Moxy Roxx
On their essential new album, THE QUIREBOYS amazed themselves. “The new music has surpassed all of expectations” admitted long-term guitarist Guy Griffin. “It’s the most diverse album we’ve ever done” added fellow six-stringer Paul Guerin. And for a band celebrating its 35th Anniversary in 2019 that’s saying something.
Amazing Disgrace is the sixth Quireboys’ album in seven years but quality over quantity remains the mantra. Eleven typically frank and familiarly evocative rock and roll classics soundtrack a band at the peak of its creative powers. The new album will be released digital on April 5th and physical on April 19th via Off Yer Rocka Recordigs / Cargo Records UK.
The brand new lyric video and single for 'Seven Deadly Sins'
More About The Album
The decision to lay down Amazing Grace at the world famous Rockfield Studios turned out to be an inspired decision as the weight of history created a unique pressure on a band determined to evolve.
“Getting everyone together at one of the most iconic studios in the world has definitely given the new music a different vibe” said guitarist Guy Griffin. “Everyone was a lot more up for it because each band member felt so involved in the process".
“I was actually more apprehensive than usual going in to the studio. I didn’t know how things would turn out but the music we came out with was better than anyone could have expected".
“We’re at the point in our career where we don’t really give a shit what anyone else thinks! I don’t mean that in a negative way but we write songs that we can play with freedom within a live show".
Paul says, "Amazing Disgrace is one of our most diverse records yet – I don’t think there’s anything we can’t do or that we wouldn’t try. The last few records have proved that.” Guerin conceded that treading in the revered footsteps of Freddie Mercury, Brian May et all across the hallowed Rockfield turf was an unforgettable experience in its own right. Emerging from the studio with an album prepped to take on all-comers in 2019 was the icing on the cake.
“You come out of the front door and on the right hand side you can see up to the window of the room where Freddie Mercury wrote Bohemian Rhapsody,” added Guerin. “Look up again and you can see the weather vane referenced in the song".
“If you’re of a certain vintage it’s just mind-blowing. I was like a kid in a sweetshop. And if you can’t draw inspiration from recording in that environment then you’re probably in the wrong job!”
Guerin is clearly in the right job. And the job satisfaction will surely spike again when THE QUIREBOYS headline a special one-off show celebrating 35 years as self-styled rock and roll rebels.
About The Quireboys
Following the band’s inception in London, UK in 1984 – originally as The Choirboys, then The Queerboys, before settling on the less controversial name of The Quireboys – there followed 6 years of hard graft and personnel changes before the inevitable happened – a UK number 2 album.
Despite supporting a certain Guns N’ Roses at the legendary Hammersmith Odeon in London it was 1990’s A Bit of What You Fancy that brought the band to the attention of the public at large, and featured founder member Spike on vocals and new recruit Guy Griffin on guitar. The record showcased no fewer than 5 hit singles – including “Hey You” which peaked at number 5 in the US Billboard Rock Chart and number 14 in the UK Singles chart.
Spike and Guy have been the backbone of THE quintessential British rock’n’roll band ever since – a journey that has seen them play to 72,000 at 1990’s Monsters of Rock at Donington with the likes of Whitesnake, Aerosmith and Poison – supporting The Rolling Stones that same year, and joining Guns N’ Roses again a couple of years later on their “Use Your Illusion” tour.
Following their second studio album, 1993’s Bitter Sweet & Twisted, the band found the new mainstream rock landscape a difficult one – and it wasn’t until 2001 and the release of This is Rock’n’Roll that they found a new lease of life.
The public’s appetite for The Quireboys had returned and hasn’t waned since – 3 further studio releases (Well Oiled, Homewreckers & Heartbreakers, Halfpenny Dancer) were released on various labels from 2004 to 2009 before the band found their new – and permanent – home on Off Yer Rocka – the label of the renowned festival brand Hard Rock Hell.
The first 4 albums on Off Yer Rocka – Beautiful Curse (2013), Black Eyed Sons (2014), St Cecilia and the Gypsy Soul (2015), and Twisted Love (2016) – have not only grown the legacy of The Quireboys but have brought new fans to the fold. 2017’s White Trash Blues saw the band take a bold move – recording a collection of iconic blues numbers but with the signature Quireboys approach – a move that paid off with glowing reviews. Covering legends such as Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Freddie King and John Lee Hooker the album is a triumph of substance over style. The album produced a stunning single release – “Leaving Trunk” – a track written by Sleepy John Estes and made famous by the legendary Taj Mahal.
The Quireboys are certainly enjoying a revival – selling out venues around the world – with 2018 also taking in The Monsters of Rock Cruise, HRH AOR VI, Sweden Rock and Stonedeaf festivals. 2019 will see a brand new studio album – their 12th – as part of a pledge campaign… so be a part of the never ending Quireboys party – as there’s no sign of Spike, Guy, Keith and Paul slowing down any time soon!

NEW ALBUM THE SPACE BETWEEN THE SHADOWS IN JULY (NAPALM RECORDS)
SCOTT STAPP’S “PURPOSE FOR PAIN” - INTROSPECTIVE, HIGH-OCTANE NEW SINGLE AVAILABLE NOW AT RADIO, RETAIL, STREAMING SERVICES
Grammy Award winning, multi-platinum songwriter, vocalist, and frontman Scott Stapp has announced his upcoming album, "THE SPACE BETWEEN THE SHADOWS" via Napalm Records. The new album is set for July release by unleashing a bombastic 1st single, “Purpose For Pain,” available now at all retailers – http://scottstapp.com.
With his new music and arsenal of hits, Stapp will embark on a cross-country summer tour – tickets for the first leg go on sale Monday, March 25 (see dates below).
With a new outlook after the biggest fight of his life – five years and counting – one of rock’s biggest names roars with a driving, introspective new single. “Purpose For Pain” is the first song from Scott Stapp’s upcoming album that documents a five-year journey to find meaning – and redemption – in a world where shadows lurk and the space between is a gauntlet towards the light. The Space Between the Shadows is Scott’s manifesto of lessons learned in the six years since his last release, yet listeners will find their own solace, hear their own frustrations, feel hope, revelations, victories and losses. The album’s first single, “Purpose For Pain,” is an apt opener with a universal message of finding meaning during life’s darker days.
Scott Stapp Videos
“Purpose for Pain is about seeking a higher meaning, a spiritual mentality when dealing with our struggles and life’s painful moments,” says Scott. “There are unexplainable, dark times that everyone goes through, and that pain is real. If we can dig deep and hold on to hope during the most difficult situations, believing there is a purpose waiting for us on the others side, we can find meaning and clarity that gives us the strength to keep fighting.”

Messer are continuing their momentum from their breakout year by releasing "Simple Man", the 3rd single and video from their self-titled debut album released in April 2018. "Messer" reached #3 on the Soundscan New Artist chart and was named New and Noteworthy at iTunes. The Dallas.
The Texas based band had a banner year in 2018 with first single “Make This Life” reaching #25 on the Active Rock radio charts, and second single "Save Myself" also made it into the Top 30 - the only truly independent act to do so.
"Simple Man" is already making inroads at radio and digital streaming services, and is set to follow in the footsteps of "Make This Life" and "Save Myself" which garnered attention throughout the rock world with spots on key Hard Rock playlists @ Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Pandora Radio, Google Play Music, Youtube and Slacker Radio. The band has received positive press @ Loudwire, AXS, Alternative Press, Revolver, New Noise, Pure Grain Audio, and more.
The band is gearing up to go back on the road in the 2nd quarter of 2019, having played more than 100 shows last year including a 40-city sold out tour with RED and Lacey Sturm. The band was personally invited by Kevin Lyman to play the Texas leg of the final Vans Warped Tour.
The band's cutting-edge modern rock sound was born through serendipitous connections in the thriving Deep Ellum music scene of Dallas, an area that has given rise to iconic Hard Rock and Metal bands like Pantera, Drowning Pool, Hell Yeah, and King's X. The band grew their fan base locally, and began to branch out regionally and nationally, opening for notable bands such as Sick Puppies, Candlebox, Hinder, Vince Neil, Black Stone Cherry, Drowning Pool, Metallica, Scott Stapp Of Creed, and Avenged Sevenfold, among others. It was on one of these tours that the band caught the attention of Los Angeles based writer/producer, Chad Gendason. The band felt an immediate comradery with Chad and a lasting bond was made. Messer started writing with Chad, and their first collaboration became "Simple Man". Fan favorite "Whiskey" soon followed and the songs started to flow into what would become their self-titled debut album "Messer". The album was mixed by Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson, Breaking Benjamin, Disturbed) and mastered by Tom Baker (Papa Roach, David Bowie, Motley Crue).
Messer continues to build on their momentum and is forging ahead with gritty determination – powered by a ton of positive energy.
