On the road of broken hearts

DESPERATION BLVD is a brand new project from Italy, born from an idea of two experienced musicians, guitarist Alex 'Crown' Corona and drummer Elvis 'Hell' Ortolan. The trio is completed by bassist Matteo 'Matt' Martinelli.

Clear echoes of Guns N' Roses as well as well-known cult bands such as Faster Pussycat, Bulletboys, L.A. Guns, Pretty Boy Floyd, Bang Tango, Vain, Babylon A.D., Tuff and Dangerous Toys round off the lively, uplifting sound. The debut is a self-titled six-song EP.

Deep in the 80s, high in quality

These promising Italian HARD ROCKERS got together by their own Rock'n'Roll destiny in 2007.

The band's name WITCHE'S BREW is taken from the name of guitarist Mirko Witche Bosco.

After a few usual changes in the band they finally found finally the perfect line-up to record their fourth and best album to date: "Chronicles Of Electric Sorcery".
The new, all around sovereignly presented compositions reveal truly outstanding, great potential, and it is by no means a coincidence that the production of the record also strongly reminds of the glorious 80s.

Philosophical optimism

Initiated as a solo project by singer Coldun himself in 2006, COLDUN has meanwhile grown into a veritable formation.

The group is made up of top-class musicians and long-time companions, all of whom have gained experience and competence through various band activities and projects in the last 20 years.

Ready for boarding!

It just doesn’t matter whether the five bright privateers from CALAROOK enter stages or auditory canals, because no rum barrel remains full.

With extremely fiddly violin pranks, wildly scrubbed guitar thunder, commanding bass barrels, explosive drumming and stormy growling, the lively Helvetians produce exactly the special variety of PIRATE METAL that massively animates to celebrate, mosh and head bang.

So it goes full steam ahead for CALAROOK – the enormously content-rich debut album "Surrender Or Die" will be launched on September 11ᵗʰ, 2020!

"In Control" is the title of the second album by the Dutch rockers HARDLAND. Even more than with the self-titled debut of 2017, the band has managed to create a completely different MELODIC ALTERNATIVE ROCK sound from very different influences. 

This ranges from Heavy Rock, AOR over 80s-Wave to accessible (Power)Pop, with a special love for music from the 1970s and 1980s.
