Do you remember when German bands cranked out true, classic Melodic Rock / Hard Rock albums regularly?

When, right after masterpieces by the likes of  the SCORPIONS, releases like BONFIRE's "Point Blank" or "Fireworks", FRONTLINE's "Heroes", CASANOVA and JADED HEART's debut albums used to be played all the time on your stereo? is the time for the Classic German Hard Rock sound, comprised of steel guitar riffs and super melodic hooks, to make a major come back.

The new band's name says it all....SUPREMACY.

This band marks the return of the amazing alliance between singer Claus Lessmann (ex-BONFIRE) with Michael Voss (CASANOVA, MAD MAX) plus Robby Boebel (ex FRONTLINE, EVIDENCE ONE) on guitar, Axel Kruse (ex-JADED HEART) on drums and former SCORPIONS bass player Francis Buchholz.

The guys are currently working on some extremely promising demo material and have inked a recording contract with Frontiers Music Srl for a release of their debut album in late 2015 / early 2016.

Michael Voss says: "It's a honor to work with all these gifted musicians on a full length album! After 25 years, to join forces with the fantastic Claus Lessmann takes me back into the 80’s heyday times playing in Bonfire. We'll keep that spirit alive and moreover revive it. Thanks to Serafino and Frontiers for believing!"

Claus Lessmann adds: "I am really looking forward to writing, recording and rocking with all the guys of Supremacy. We all have so much to give and it really means a lot to me to work together with those talented musicians. It will also bring back the good old days of Rock’n’Roll when my good old friend Michael Voss was on my side all across Europe back at the "Point Blank" days. A big Grazie to Serafino, Mario and all at Frontiers for their belief and for givin’ us one more reason to rock! Every little note of our songs will be a piece of our heart."


Vitne With The Double-Whammy!  2 Brand New Singles Out Now

Oslo, Norway - April 20th, 2015 - After the success of his last single, "Winter Love Song," Vitne is back with 2 brand new singles, both released on April 20th this year.  First up is "Lost and Found," the heavier of the two, a glam-punk anthem that will get stuck in your head on first listen.  Second is "Misery", a feel-good song building from acoustic guitar into an all-out rocker.  Both songs feature Julian Angel on lead guitar and Phil Robertson on drums.  

Both are now available on iTunes:

In addition, a brand new EP is currently being mixed and will be available Summer 2015.
Vitne is a rock and metal solo artist.  Influenced by artists like Mötley Crüe, KISS, X Japan, GACKT, and Billy Idol, Vitne presents a heavy style of modern glam punk which draws on both 80's style hair metal as well as Japanese visual kei.  Vitne’s most notable releases include Neon (“All killer, no filler.... The disc is simply fun” [Rock Garage]) and the 2014 single Winter Love Song (”a phenomenal work of art from a truly talented musician" [Indie Band Guru]).  Musically he sings, plays the acoustic and electric guitar, bass, as well as flute.

Hotly tipped UK rock n’ rollers, The Burning Crows, showcase an infectious mix of good time rock n' roll, with an attitude, style & swagger that lands Britrock firmly back in the contemporary mainstream which has earned them the reputation of being one of the very best live bands on the scene today. If high energy, rock n' roll played hard and played with gusto is your thing, come join
the carnival of frivolity and indulge in a decadent feast for the senses that is The Burning Crows’ second album, ‘Murder At The Gin House’.

Following the amazing public and media reaction to the release of their first EP, “Never Had It So Good" (review HERE), the subsequent headline tour of the UK & Ireland, a slot at Hard Rock Hell and featuring as special guests to The Quireboys throughout their winter tour, bravado rock n rollers, The Burning Crows, couldn't have asked for a better 2012. After an overwhelming demand for more, the band returned to the world famous Rockfield Studiosin Wales, to once again working with legendary producer Nick Brine (The Darkness, Bruce Springsteen, Oasis) to record ‘Behind The Veil (review HERE)’. Funded in part through a successful PledgeMusic campaign which achieved over 154% of its goal, the album was released in Summer 2013, supported by a number of music videos, highbrow shows and has since earned rave reviews from both fans and the media alike. Not content to wait until they returned to the studio again, the band also released a limited edition live album 'LIVE ...From Behind The Veil', limited to just 100 signed discs and available to buy at and following the success of the release embarked upon a UK tour with fellow rock band Falling Red.

There truly is no rest for the wicked however and following a second PledgeMusic project, which consequently exceeded all expectations by reaching it's goal in just 12 days and exceeding 250% at completion, the band have just returned from Rockfield Studios to after once again working with Nick Brine to record their hotly anticipated second album, ‘Murder At The Gin House’, due for worldwide release on 6 th July 2015.


Tommy Bolin, der junge US Gitarren Gott, der mit seinen lauten, stilübergreifenden Auftritten einen wahren Wirbelsturm entfachte, bevor er 1976 frühzeitig im Alter von 25 Jahren verstarb, hinterließ ein bisher unbekanntes Meisterwerk. TEASER hätte sein weltweiter Durchbruch sein sollen. Stattdessen hatte er, als das Album 1975 erschien, als Mitglied von Deep Purple nie die Chance, es zu bewerben und so wurde es zu einem weitgehend unbekannten Kult Klassiker.

40 Jahre später ist es höchste Zeit, dies zu ändern. Am 15. Mai 2015 wird UDR Records TEASER 40th Anniversary Vinyl Edition Box Set als Deluxe 3 LP Box- Set mit zwei zusätzlichen Live CDs herausbringen und so den 40 jährigen Geburtstag dieser Albumveröffentlichung feiern. Mit lange verlorenen bisher unveröffentlichten Aufnahmen und alternativen Mixes der TEASER Aufnahmesessions sowie 2 CD's mit Liveaufnahmen von Ebbets Field, The Northern Lights, My father's Place und Albany wird TEASER 40th Anniversary Vinyl Edition Box Set sowohl eingefleischte Bolin- als auch Gitarrenfans auf der ganzen Welt begeistern. Der CD Content „Best of Live“ wird ebenfalls auch digital erscheinen!
