With Long Black Veil, the Chieftains attempted a mainstream pop crossover by recording with rock and pop stars from the Rolling Stones and Sting to Van Morrison and Sinéad O'Connor. Instead of changing their sound to accommodate the talents of their guests, the band plays it straight. As always, their performance is superb; what is surprising is how well the pop stars sing Celtic material. None of the guest singers sound displaced or uncomfortable, which is largely due to the sympathetic performances of the Chieftains.

We Sold Our Soul for Rock 'n' Roll is a good single-disc collection of many – but not all – of Black Sabbath's best tracks from the Ozzy Osbourne era, drawing about half of its material from the group's first two albums, Black Sabbath and Paranoid. That makes it ideal for the fan who only wants one Black Sabbath disc, but those who want to dig deeper should be advised that all six LPs from the Osbourne period contain high-quality items not present here, especially the under-represented Master of Reality and Vol. 4. Still, there's no quibbling with what is here.

MacColl was a renaissance man of folk music, not as well known as Seeger or Guthrie, but in many ways just as important. Born in Scotland in 1915, MacColl knew and recorded thousands of traditional British and Celtic songs, a generous sampling of which is here offered. His voice can be a bit of a shock–wild and rustic and thick with dialect–but matched with original and traditional material like "Dirty Old Town" (made infamous by the Pogues), "Driver's Song," "Looking for a Job," and "Joy of Living," MacColl's art has vigor and immediacy.

Anyone who has closely followed the lively development of this Ruhrpott legend since the founding, knows exactly about the always upright and loyal attitude of the inflexible legation. When Germany’s Black Messiah came to the public in 1992, the Metal world was still quite different from what it currently is. But to this day, the singing leader Zagan with his guitar, violin and titanic passion held fast to his immovable ideals. And what began courageous as an innovative-folkish Pagan Black Metal and then, over the years, led more and more into classic, highly epic Pagan Metal with a Power Metal flair, now flows into „Walls Of Vanaheim“. …

La-La Land Records, Capitol Records and Paramount Pictures proudly present the expanded and remastered 2-CD SET of acclaimed composer Hans Zimmer's original score to the 1989 culture-clash cop/actioner BLACK RAIN, starring Michael Douglas, Andy Garcia and Ken Takakura, and directed by Ridley Scott. Zimmer's pulse-pounding score would become a sonic blueprint for action film scoring throughout the 90's and well into the present. Finally, as produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Doug Schwartz, BLACK RAIN gets its much-deserved and expanded deluxe treatment, presenting Zimmer's film score on Disc 1 and the original, remastered 1989 album presentation on Disc 2, along with bonus tracks and alternate cues that include the main title version of the opening song "I'll Be Holdin' On." Tim Grieving's exclusive, in-depth liners take you behind the film and its iconic score.

When half of a band's original lineup packs up and leaves, it's a pretty big deal, at least to the group and their fans. Left Lane Cruiser were populated by just two guys for their first ten years – Frederick "Joe" Evans IV on guitar and vocals, and Brenn Beck on drums – and after Beck quit the group in 2014, Alive Naturalsound decided to mark the end of an era with Beck in Black, a collection of material from the duo's years with Beck behind the drums. Left Lane Cruiser are very good at what they do, but they have only so many moves in their repertoire, and Beck in Black covers them all – heavy-hitting blues-rock with lots of gnarly slide guitar, Brontosaurus stomp rhythms, and lyrics about women, whiskey, weed, and dangerous good times of all stripes.

World premiere release of complete John Barry score for 1979 Walt Disney sci-fi tale with Anthony Perkins, Maximilian Schell, Ernest Borgnine, directed by Gary Nelson. Spectacular CD production, co-branded by Walt Disney Records & Intrada, offers every note of Barry's oft-requested score in stunning digital stereo from 32-track digital masters vaulted at Disney. Original LP offered 30 minutes of scoring highlights but new CD has every LP selection plus over 20 minutes of never-before released material, all newly mastered in true digital audio, playing in picture sequence! Exciting overture, swirling main title motifs are memorable but equally fun are numerous devices literally spotlighting favorite signatures of composer: melodic ideas played in one register by French horns, then another register by trumpets; massive block minor chords for suspense; repeating rhythmic ideas generating action; many other musical trademarks.

At 49 minutes and 12 tracks in length, "Nightfall", is easily the best material released by multi-instrumentalist Dalton DuBois whether under his "Black Malachite" moniker or any other. Featuring excellent production values and rather well-executed instrumentation, the record spreads its time across more or less three different styles: southern-tinged post-rock, electronic music, and solo pianist performances. "Nightfall" isn't a great record by any means–but it is most definitely a few large steps in the right direction for the mostly directionless Black Malachite. While still more interested in experimenting with different flavors than committing to and refining one at a time, "Nightfall" interestingly boasts some of the artist's best material yet and is easily his most overall consistent release to boot. Although his electronic pieces still need some work, his guitar and piano compositions continue to grow surprisingly stronger as time goes by. It's surprising to say, but "Nightfall" seems to be proof positive of Sputnikmusic's own Dalton DuBois slowly becoming a competent artist.

lack Laden Crown is the eleventh studio album, and the tenth of all-new original material, by American heavy metal band Danzig, scheduled for release on May 26, 2017. Black Laden Crown will be the band's first album of original material since Deth Red Sabaoth (2010), marking the longest gap between two studio albums in their career, as well as their first release with drummer Joey Castillo since I Luciferi (2002). The album took three years to complete, with the recording sessions beginning in February 2014. Black Laden Crown was recorded with four different drummers (Castillo, Johnny Kelly, Karl Rockfist and Dirk Verbeuren) while the bass parts were handled by Tommy Victor.
