“To The Metal”, fittingly released in 2010, is the tenth full-length studio album by German power metal heavyweights Gamma Ray. Recorded in the Hamburg studio of the band’s mastermind Kai Hansen, it features the band delivering their famous full-throttle approach to metal on 10 fantastic tracks. There’s a lot to love here, from the rhythmic and melodically diverse “Time To Live”, to the multi-layered anthem “All You Need To Know” to which ex-Helloween frontman Michael Kiske lends his vocals. The album is finally back on vinyl via earMUSIC in a strictly limited and numbered heavyweight orange gatefold-edition.Limited and numbered white vinyl, 180g 2LPs.
Fleshtones - Face of the Screaming Werewolf RSD 2020
Legendary garage rockers The Fleshtones have been pumping out hits for over four decades, earning them the honour of being "America's Garage Rock Band." They're one of the final remaining original CBGB bands, they've played on Andy Warhol's short-lived MTV show while Sir Ian McKellen read Shakespeare over their jamming, and were the last band to publicly perform at the World Trade Center's Windows on the World. However, what's most incredible about The Fleshtones is that they're putting out some of their best music yet forty years into their career, as evidenced by their new album Face of the Screaming Werewolf. This special edition of Face of the Screaming Werewolf arrives on limited edition purple splatter vinyl and includes a werewolf mask inside the packaging!
“Dirty Diamonds” is Alice Cooper like you haven’t heard him ever since “School’s Out”. The master of shock rock channels his 70s roots and returns to the classic, dirty rock ’n’ roll. Hits and hip shakers like ‘Woman Of Mass Distraction’, ‘Perfect’ or the title track ‘Dirty Diamonds’ are must-haves for any Alice Cooper fan. The album is now available as a strictly limited and numbered gatefold-edition on heavyweight red vinyl.
Phosphene Dream was the third album from psychedelic beasts the Black Angels and saw them make a huge leap forward from their early sludge 'n' drone approach. With the help of producer Dave Sardy (Oasis, Wolfmother etc) the band started to strip away at the murk and make a more varied record with nods back to the 1960s likes of 13th Floor Elevators and Pink Floyd.
Hidden West Coast gem that appeals to the hippies, the Balearic heads and Yacht Rock fans alike. Dreamy campfire boogies and funky folk numbers that wouldn't be out of place at a daytime disco. Lovingly re-issued by the mighty Be With Records, this is an absolute must-have for any record lover!
'Tell Her She's Lovely' is the standout track on an LP that's bursting with great little groovers and super baroque belters. If you're a fan of masterful AOR, country-rock, or poolside pop, this album ticks all the right boxes. 'High Tide' is a Balearic masterpiece, and the rest of the album is absolutely full of the good stuff.
It's not on Spotify, so get this on lovely vinyl and fill the air with the sounds of the mighty brothers Batteau.
