JOE PERRY (Aerosmith) - Sweetzerland Manifesto (2018) full
HERE

JOE PERRY — legendary guitarist, co-founding member, principal songwriter and co-producer of AEROSMITH — will release his new solo album "Sweetzerland Manifesto" tomorrow (his first since 2009) featuring a wide array of guests vocalists ranging from the New York Dolls' David Johansen and Cheap Trick's Robin Zander, to his sons, Tony and Roman.

"Sweetzerland Manifesto" marks Joe's sixth solo album and is comprised of 10 new tracks. They were all written or co-written by Joe (many with the album's guest vocalists), except for a cover of "Eve Of Destruction" with Joe on lead vocals and movie star Johnny Depp on drums.
The album features guest appearances from a long list of Joe's friends, colleagues and rock and roll icons.

Highlights include include "Aye, Aye, Aye", which Perry co-wrote with the track's vocalist Robin Zander, and three collaborations with David Johansen, who sings "I Wanna Roll", "Haberdasher Blues" and "I'm Going Crazy", plus as many co-writes with Terry Reid whose lead vocals light up "I'll Do Happiness" (with Zak Starkey on drums), "Sick & Tired" and "Won't Let Me Go".

"Sweetzerland Manifesto" is cool, entertaining blues-based rock album with sone hard rocking moments and a fine vintage-like production.

SHAYNE MALONE - Rocket (2018)

SHAYNE MALONE - Rocket (2018) full
HERE

"Rocket" is new album by SHAYNE MALONE, a New Zealand based artist which once more confirms that you don't need a big recording label behind to create a very good, complete music album.
Shayne love the '80s, anthem Melodic Hard Rock bands like Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue and Whitesnake – all mentioned in his Bio as influences - and you van hear these and more in his delicious 11-track new album.

Shayne started to play guitar at his 9-year old and since has been part of various bands. He become professional at his 14 however opted for other job when got married after his twenties. But Shane never abandoned music.
Over the years he keep composing and playing, and last year decided to record these songs with his band, all managed by himself (recording / production).
The result was 'One', his debut album.

On his own words: "I am a dad now, have 2 children and a wife, and I am a lawyer by trade and as a result, I have had NO time to tour or really promote myself.
I am not interested in fame, I am not interested in signing a record deal… I just want to share my songs with you and do this alongside you, not stand on a mountain looking down on you like celebrities do".

Fortunately, this second album "Rocket", via Facebbok and other social networks, the art of Shane Malone reached more people. And glad we did it as well.
"Rocket" is plenty of well composed / arranged Melodic Hard Rock tunes with the '80s in mind, both in sound & style.

Opener 'Better' is pretty much Def Leppard-ized with its hooky rhythm, the sprinkling keys of 'Who's Your Hero' brings to mind Italians Wheels Of Fire, while the guitar driven 'Crazy', Australian Dion Bayman, perhaps due to Shane's similar vocal color, really melodious.



There's an anthemic 'Broken Land' with some early Crazy Lixx on it, 'The Lady' recalls Arti Tisi catchiness, then 'Cowboy Rides' is a lovely ballad with an '80s Bon Jovi feeling.
I found 'Speed of Light' similar to the great German band Stun Leer melodic rock formula, and with 'When You Love' we have another ballad, this time with a more 21st century touch, very well performed by Shane.

Reaching the album's end, we have to highlights.
'Carnival of Souls' is that kind of melodic rocker with essence, with atmospheric midtempo verses which explodes into an arena ready chorus, whilst closer 'Blood on the Wall' has a meaty guitar work all over, cool retro keys and a bouncy rhythm section.

Shane Malone is one of the surprises early this year, sure to please Melodic Hard Rockers of all ages. Overall, the album is mostly 'melodic rock' with AOR touches, however there's a couple of tracks with energetic guitars qualifying as 'melodic hard'.

Very well recorded & produced with the necessary punch - the mastering at DNA Mastering, California, helps a lot - 'Rocket' is an uncompromising '80s Melodic Rock album from an artist who make the music he loves.
Welcome Shane, you Rock!
Highly Recommended

AMMUNITION - Ammunition [Japanese Edition +1] (2018)

AMMUNITION - Ammunition [Japanese Edition +1] (2018) full
HERE

Scandinavian supergroup AMMUNITION are set to release their self-titled album via Frontiers Music on January 26, 2018. But the Advanced Japanese release appeared a couple hours ago (yes, two hours) and you already have it at 0dayrox.
The who's who from the Swedish / Norwegian melodic hard rock scene are here: Age Sten Nilsen (ex Wig Wam), Erik Martensson (Eclipse, W.E.T., Nordic Union), Victor Cito Borge (TNT), Lasse Finbråten (from Circus Maximus, also ex-Wig Wam), Magnus Ulfstedt (Eclipse) and Jon Pettersen on guitar.

This album consists of 11 tracks (plus a Japanese exclusive bonus) of melodic bliss for fans to fall in love with. Bouncy n' hooky Melodic Rock is something this band has completely captured on this record.
Musically, they did a great job in claiming their own unique sound that can just be referenced as Ammunition.

"Ammunition" kicks off as Nilsen belts out a long-held scream to some quick guitar work that leads you into 'Time', a song that will have you shaking your hips to the beat as your body finally catches up with the music and you’re humming along to the track.
The momentum continues on into the second track 'Freedom Finder' which is also the second single released off of Ammunition (see the video below). The song is really groovy / melodic with great harmonies throughout and catchy choruses that let fans start singing along quickly too.



As the album continues on, listeners are brought to a fun track with 'Virtual Reality Boy'. Great punchy and entertaining lyrics, pay close attention to this one, I think it will become a favorite for many.
We get a slower midtempo semi-ballad with 'Eye For An Eye', a very well arranged song where you can hear Eclipse's Erik Martensson hand, then back into more uptempo territory there's 'Tear Your City Down', a tune that I almost thought Joey Tempest from Europe was doing guest vocals on, but nope, Åge completely caught me off guard with his vocals on this track. Pretty awesome actually!

The album will keep you rocking out with 'Caveman', and then turn things up a bit when you get to track 8 'Wrecking Crew' another cut that had me second guessing if Joey Tempest was actually singing! This song also placed second in the Norwegian ESC Finale (Melodi Grand Prix) back in March 2017.

The CD wraps up with the final 3 tracks; 'Miss Summertime' that slows down in a ballad mode with the typical Scandinavian class, then pick up the pace with 'Bad Bones', a sassy and hooky tune.
The album ends on a rocking note with 'Klondike', a killer, gritty melodic hard track that will keep fans moving until the last note.

AMMUNITION - Ammunition [Japanese Edition +1] (2018) back

As Japanese bonus track there's 'Eye For An Eye (Acoustic Version)', a very nice re-work on the fifth track showcasing how good these guys are composing.

Bravo Ammunition. What a spectacular new record. You’ve given melodic hard rock music fans an album to rejoice over early in 2018. Thanks for kicking the year off for all of us with such a masterful and enjoyable CD.

Y&T - Acoustic Classix, Vol.1 (2018) + Bonus

Y&T - Acoustic Classix, Vol.1 (2018) + Bonus full
HERE

Bay Area hard rock pioneers Y&T, who have been kicking around since the Seventies, are releasing their first acoustic album titled "Acoustic Classix Vol. 1". Still active and commanded by founder Dave Meniketti, Y&T are returning to their catalog to put a new spin on a few of their classics.

Recorded in December 2017, the band has included classic Y&T songs on this first acoustic release, with a few songs you wouldn't expect to hear acoustically, each with a different spin.
This is a very special release that gives Y&T fans a whole new way to enjoy these classic Y&T tunes.

Before Mötley Crüe, before RATT, even before there was a Metallica, Y&T was slogging away in sweaty rock clubs around America. When the band formed in the 70s, little did they know they would set the standard for hard rock bands that trailed.
Many of the biggest acts of the ’80s became popular opening for headliners Y&T — and cut their teeth on the band, as evidenced by the Y&T mentions in tell-all books by acts such as Metallica and Mötley Crüe.

Born in Oakland, California, Y&T is one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s own innovators of the hard rock sound. Whether performing to a festival crowd of fifty-thousand or in an intimate nightclub, Y&T’s high-energy set and passionate performances still captivate legions of fans around the globe, proving Y&T’s music timeless.

Originally formed as Yesterday and Today, the initial powerhouse quartet—featuring Dave Meniketti (lead guitar/lead vocals), Phil Kennemore (bass), Leonard Haze (drums), and Joey Alves (rhythm guitar)—tore through the ’70s and ’80s with their own brand of hard rock.
After two ’70s albums on London Records, they shortened their name to Y&T and released eight albums on A&M in the ’80s.
Two more albums with Geffen Records marked an era of change with Jimmy DeGrasso (Alice Cooper, Suicidal Tendencies, Megadeth) on drums and Stef Burns (Alice Cooper, Berlin, Huey Lewis) on guitar.

With a discography of 18 albums, three greatest hits collections, plus a boxed set, Y&T has sold over four million albums since their 1974 inception.
Y&T received extensive airplay with hits such as 'Forever', 'Rescue Me', 'Mean Streak', 'Don’t Stop Runnin’, and 'Summertime Girls' — which played in heavy rotation on MTV.
Y&T songs have been featured in a multitude of movies and television shows, including Real Genius, Out of Bounds, Baywatch, and Hunter. After five top 100 albums, songs that tipped into the 40s, two Bammie Awards, and many international television appearances, Y&T’s hits are still played on VH1 Classic and classic rock radio stations worldwide.

With Kennemore’s untimely passing from lung cancer, the band carries on the legacy that is Y&T.
Y&T continues to tour the world, playing songs that span the band’s five-decade career and including all the hits and fan favorites

Y&T - Acoustic Classix, Vol.1 (2018) + Bonus - inside

So this "Acoustic Classix Vol. 1" is a really welcomed release.
Alongside classics such as 'Contagious', 'Summertime Girls' and 'Black Tiger', there's the fun 'Barroom Boogie', all re-done into an organic, acoustic shape.
With the physical CD purchase you have as bonus a rare acoustic version of 'Hands Of Time ', plus a 5-track acoustic performance recorded Live At The Bone Studios for radio broadcast, taken from Y&T's vaults.
Highly Recommended

LIONE / CONTI - Lione / Conti (2018)

LIONE / CONTI - Lione / Conti (2018) full
HERE

Frontiers Music will release the self-titled debut album from LIONE / CONTI on January 26, 2018. Judging by the art-cover of this new project, it looks like a 'new version' of Allen / Lande albums, and indeed, musically is pretty close: powerful tunes yet highly melodic.

Alessandro Conti is the singer of Italian's Trick Or Treat, and Fabio Lione is the original singer of Rhaposdy, who fronted the band’s classic albums.
These two renewed musicians join their forces for this project alongside Marco Lanciotti on drums, Filippo Martignano on keyboards and talented Simone Mularoni on guitars and bass (who is also responsible for the production / mixing / mastering).

For those of you that are into the melodic / power scene, this album will make your day; no doubt about that. The same goes, also, for those who loved the Allen / Lande albums, Millenium, Jorn, etc.
In general, this record is full of big melodies, huge vocals, heavy guitars and some incredible hooks and choruses to sing-a-long for days.

"Ascension" is the opening number and it's simply a killer track all the way. Powerful, ridiculously melodic with a hook line that grabs you at once.
"Outcome" is slightly heavier but again extremely melodic, while in "Somebody Else" we are dealing with another highlight out of this debut, an epic power metal ballad that features big orchestrations and a huge guitar work that rockets this song to a higher level. Excellent stuff.

LIONE / CONTI - Lione / Conti (2018) inside

The fast-paced "Misbeliever", "Destruction Show" and the hymn "Glories" will put a wide smile upon the face of classic metal freak out there. With "Gravity" Lione / Conti deliver yet another killer melodic metal gem (that features an insane guitar solo) that is among my personal favorites here.

As mentioned above, this album is a must have for each and every serious modern melodic metal / hard rock fan out there. If you already love Allen / Lande albums, Millenium, Jorn even the lighter side of Masterplan, then you will love this one equally. Vocal performances are top notch, the guitar work is stupendous and production bright & punchy.

FIRE TIGER - Suddenly Heavenly (2018)

FIRE TIGER - Suddenly Heavenly (2018) full
HERE

FIRE TIGER is an atypical band from the current L.A. scene: after listening to the band's just released new album "Suddenly Heavenly" their '80s sound is certainly inescapable.
This album takes you back to the days when you could dance around in your room to the latest videos on MTV, via catchy poppy melodic rock melodies and its feel-good vibe.

While the days of watching the top 20 on MTV may be long gone, there are still few decent videos on youtube, stations devoted it to, and (of course) the CD / LP and even Cassete Tapes ("Suddenly Heavenly" is available on this format too).
Yes, from their band name FIRE TIGER to the look and sound of the decade where leg warmers were a fashion statement you can't go wrong: FIRE TIGER are pure '80s.

"Suddenly Heavenly" is the band's second effort, a ten-song collection that will seriously leave you wondering what year it is. Even the track list at the back cover is presented as 'Side A / Side B'
Everything from the vocals to the music is true classic ’80s Melodic poppy Rock and I am totally obsessed after just one listen.

There's catchy melodies, strong guitars, glossy production and great harmony vocals. Vocalist Tiffany Alkouri’s style and soulful delivery are reminiscent of Bonnie Tyler or Sandi Saraya and again I’m sure those comparisons have been iterated times over.

FIRE TIGER - Suddenly Heavenly (2018) cd

While all the songs are fun, there are a few in particular I really like.
Opener 'Love the Way' is a highlight, a moving melodic rocker filled with soaring vocals and sharp guitars / solos all over. Some kind of SARAYA with more punch.

The instant melody & lyrics of 'Sailing to Neverland' brings to mind a young ROBIN BECK, then 'Be Bygones' - with a cool guest guitar solo courtesy of Steve Lukather's son Trev - easily could have been part of a teen movie soundtrack in 1987.
There's a nice midtempo ballad in 'Feeling' with some BANGLES on it, and a very KRISTINE-like lovely tune in the title track.

FIRE TIGER - Suddenly Heavenly (2018) back

We need more bands like FIRE TIGER, especially the US market needs it.
Honestly, "Suddenly Heavenly" a loveable album from start to finish, it sounds like a 'lost 80s LP' bringing a huge breath of fresh air to the current scene.
Eighties suckers, you need this one.

GIRLSCHOOL - Play Dirty [SHM-CD MiniLP +5] Out Of Print

GIRLSCHOOL - Play Dirty [SHM-CD MiniLP +5] Out Of Print full
HERE

One of you asked for the out of print, remastered Limited Edition Japanese miniLP of GIRLSCHOOL's most famous albums pressed on high quality SHM-CD. Here's more.
"Play Dirty" is the fourth studio album by the British girls released on Bronze Records in 1983 and produced by Noddy Holder & Jim Lea both from the hard rock band SLADE.

"Play Dirty" was the first Girlschool record signalling an inclination towards a softer, commercial hard rock sound.
Indeed, the keyboard synth textures added into "Play Dirty" surprised many fans (I loved it) and rougher edges of Girlschool's abrasive hard rock sound have been buffed smooth for a more radio friendly version of the band.

This would seem to be an overt attempt to remold the band into the sort of pop-metal act that would be more palatable to U.S. audiences.
"Breaking All The Rules" is proto hair metal fun, while with the title "Rock Me, Shock Me" you only can expect a party-ready glammy hard rocker.
Title track "Play Dirty" and "High and Dry" add more muscle but its commercialism and catchiness is evident via synth stabs.

"Burning In The Heat" mixes poppy verses with Kiss-like harmonies during the chorus while a fairly lively guitar provides a melodic solo.
There'a also a cover of T. Rex's "20th Century Boy" dome with an 80s mega-produced sound, and I like it a lot.
The album is balanced with some raw rockers driven by the urgency of Girlschool earlier records, such as "Going Under", a riff driven metal song - even factoring in the glossy production.

As bonus tracks, is nice to have 5 cuts which were previously only available on the band's 12" EP's, including '1-2-3-4 Rock and Roll'. Its 'Extended Version' is my favorite from the bunch, a must for 80s collectors.

GIRLSCHOOL - Play Dirty [SHM-CD MiniLP +5] Out Of Print - back

"Play Dirty" is a very good collection of US-styled melodic hard rockers with that 80s feel, utilising a sound that the likes of HEART or VIXEN would capitalize in the near future.
You know what I mean: catchy choruses, polished guitar riffs, synths and that typical reverb on the snare drum.
Melodic Hard Rock fans should give this album a proper listen, still unknown for many.

Very good release, as usual, with the superb Japanese SHM-CD quality.
0dayrox Team is always eager to fulfill everyone's requests, if it's out there, we'll do our best. And here's another one (more to come).
Highly Recommended piece of '80s rock.

STRAIGHT LINES - Straight Lines [Remastered / AOR CITY Series 2017]

STRAIGHT LINES - Straight Lines [Remastered / AOR CITY Series 2017] full
HERE

From the great Sony Music Japan campaign AOR CITY Series Vol.2, a low-priced remastered reissue on 100 classic AOR / AC albums from their back catalog (many of them out of print or hard to find) here's STRAIGHT LINES first album, the self-titled debut "Straight Lines".

This Canadian outfit was founded by seasoned studio musicians David Sinclair and Bob Buckley, whom recorded for many well known artists.
The band originally gained popularity undedr the name Dogstar and attracted the attention of CBS Records in Toronto. The label loved the act (and the songs) but not the name so it was effectively changed to STRAIGHT LINES.

After a succession of songwriting episodes with Chilliwack's Howie Vickers, the band went into the studio with producers Martin Shaer (The Runaways, Sweeney Todd) and Jack Richardson (Coney Hatch) to lay down tracks for their self-titled debut.

STRAIGHT LINES - Straight Lines [Remastered / AOR CITY Series 2017] disc

The LP spawn two singles; "Heads Are Gonna Roll" and "Roanne" (both made the Top 100 in the Canadian Rock chart).
To present the album, STRAIGHT LINES hit the road in 1981 with another Canadian awesome AOR act, Prism.

This first STRAIGHT LINES effort has a typical Canadian melodious waves from the early 80s; crystal clear sound and easy to the ear arrangements.
You'll find here lovely melodies in the vein of Beau Geste, Duke Jupiter, HYTS, Balance, 707, Novo Combo or i-TEN, the type of songs to appeal the US market as well.

STRAIGHT LINES - Straight Lines [Remastered / AOR CITY Series 2017] back

After many years impossible to find even in its original vinyl LP version, finally we have a superb "Straight Lines" remaster from the master tapes. The sound quality and manufacturing in this Japanese AOR CITY Series Vol.2 is excellent.
Hurry up, it's available for a limited period of time until the end of 2018, sold at a really affordable price.
