One of Heavy Paradise's favorite bands is without any doubt NIVA. Tony Niva (Lion's Share) is back with a brand record with the title "Atmospherical". For me, Niva is one of today's best shouter out there with a vocal range that covers from AOR to Melodic Metal and"Magnitude", that was released in 2014. was and still is a damn fine piece of Melodic Hard Rock heaven and it's among my personal favorite albums over the last decade.

This is White Widdow’s second and features big walls of sound throughout. The start of opener “Cry Wolf” reeks of 80s hairspray but quickly moves into a fresher melodic rock groove. The levels are well balanced and whilst there is nothing spectacular musically it is as solid as you would hope from this genre. As the album progresses there is a mix of the genuinely catchy to the DJ friendly and the classic sound allows itself a few opportunities to strut. The songs do try and break away from the traditional structures and whilst certainly not moving into any sort of progressive territory are still an interesting array.

Reach is the eighth studio album from rock band Survivor, released under Frontiers Records on 25 April 2006. This is the band's latest album in 18 years. Some of the material originates from a period from 1993 to 1996 when the band recorded demos for an unreleased album that can be heard on the Fire Makes Steel bootleg. By this time, Frankie Sullivan was the only original member of Survivor, as Jim Peterik left the band in 1996. Following the release of this album singer Jimi Jamison left Survivor as well, though he subsequently reunited with them in 2012. Ultimately, this turned out to be his final album with the band, due to his death in 2014.

Bruno Kraler, former frontman for DARK SKY and NIGHTPRIDE, is releasing his latest CD of high-energy, amazing vocals and some of the best music in the AOR genre you will hear to date. Kraler mixes vocal styles in the vein of Claus Lessman (BONFIRE) and Dennis De Young (STYX).

The Far Field refines and builds on the breakthroughs of the Baltimore-based trio’s 2014 album Singles, bursting with undeniable hooks and disarmingly honest lyrics written by Samuel T. Herring (vocals, lyrics), William Cashion (bass, guitars) and Gerrit Whelmers (keyboards, programming). After the success of Singles and the hundreds of Future Islands shows played in that period, the band began writing new material on the coast of North Carolina, and continued throughout the year in Baltimore before road-testing these songs at a series of secret shows under fake names. Later that year, they traveled to Los Angeles to record with Grammy Award-winning producer John Congleton at the legendary Sunset Sound, where everyone from The Beach Boys to Prince have laid down masterpieces.

Hot Thoughts is the bravest, most sonically inventive work of Spoon’s career. With all due respect to earlier efforts that have made the quintet both critically acclaimed and a commercial contender, preconceptions about this band are about to be obliterated. That’s not to say Hot Thoughts doesn’t have a requisite supply of infectious earworms but there’s a lyrical bent that’s as carnal as it’s crafty, and a newfound sense of sonic exploration that results in the genresmasher Spoon have flirted with in the past but not fully consummated. Co-produced by Spoon and Dave Fridmann and reunited with Matador Records (third time’s the charm), let's acknowledge that Britt Daniel’s spot in the pantheon of rock’s genius songwriters was well established a ways back, but with the crackling, incandescent, multi-dimensional backdrop conjured on ‘Hot Thoughts’, the lines between accessible and experimental become non-factors for once and all. It’s pop as high art, delivered with total confidence and focus.

In Octave Minds, his collaboration with German producer Boys Noize, Chilly Gonzales sounds more comfortable than ever in the same harmony-arranging role he did on Daft Punk’s ‘Random Access Memories’. There’s not a smidgen of his hokey rap-style vocal here: instead, glacial piano familiar to fans of his 2010 album ‘Ivory Tower’ and a double dose of playfulness from Boys Noize and guest Chance The Rapper, the latter on the Pharrell-aping ‘Tap Dance’. ‘Initals KK’ borrows harmonies from New Order’s ‘True Faith’, while ‘In Silence’ goes from James Blake throb to loungy piano. Though not without corniness (see ‘Done Deal”s wanky guitar solo) ‘Octave Minds’ is a chilled, cinematic trip powered by Chilly’s piano chords.

For Mamiffer’s Faith Coloccia and Aaron Turner, music is a divine language, a code to be deciphered, a map riddled with clues. Their latest album, The World Unseen, is a conceptual and liminal document of numinous connection through an experience with loss. It is an exploration of subconscious and psychic bonds between the past and present, and the ways in which the musical devices of repetition and incantation create hands across the chasm that divide the human from the divine.

There is something going on in Cuba that is, quite simply, raising the bar on music of all kinds. An incredibly talented and visionary group of Cuban millennials are reimagining their African roots through a lens that filters, jazz, soul and funk. And Daymé Arocena is literally giving voice to this movement.
