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).

If the powerful yet slick AOR of Giant's first two albums – 1989's Last of the Runaways and 1992's Time to Burn – had already seemed stylistically out of step with the times (hence their resounding commercial failure), then the group's next studio effort, 2001's III, would, by rights, have to sound positively prehistoric…right? Well, yes according to the whims of pop charts everywhere, but not in the eyes of European label Frontiers, which aggressively courted three of the four original bandmembers until they agreed to reconvene for these recordings, nearly ten years after their breakup.

The first two singles released from the album are "call the police" and "american dream," that moved Pitchfork to rave the songs "couldn't sound timelier" and that "Murphy and company have never sounded so invigorated." The New York Times hailed "call the police" as "a quietly ambitious protest song… except that instead of searing, it motors," and Noisey embraced "american dream" like "a warm blanket." The band debuted both of these tracks on a May, 2017 appearance on Saturday Night Live. The next track and video that followed is "tonite."

Nearly 20 years into the band's career, The National have reached a status attained only by the likes of Radiohead: a progressive, uncompromising band with genuinely broad appeal. Produced by multi-instrumentalist Aaron Dessner in his upstate New York studio (with coproduction from guitarist Bryce Dessner and singer Matt Berninger), Sleep Well Beast captures the band at their moody, majestic best, from the propulsive “The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness” to “Guilty Party,” where Berninger’s portraits of failing marriage come to a sad, gorgeous, and surprisingly subtle head.

One for All has developed into one of the solid hard bop units, consisting of six talented New York-based musicians, most of whom have recorded a fair amount as individual leaders. With tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, trombonist Steve Davis, and trumpeter Jim Rotundi in the front line, along with pianist David Hazeltine, bassist David Williams, and drummer Joe Farnsworth providing a great rhythm section, the sextet delves into decades-old gems like "Killer Joe," "Matin Call," and "I Remember Clifford" with authority. But such a band needs to come up with original material to stay fresh, so Alexander contributed the mellow, sauntering ballad "Island," which features superb interplay among the horns. Davis penned the driving"Hot Sake," which sounds like it would have been perfect fodder for Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, or any hard bop band. Recommended.

It’s the project’s fifth album to date and long-awaited follow-up to 2010’s Where Did the Night Fall. According to a press release, the album taps into the multicultural landscape of modern London and sets out to unite an eclectic mix of ideas, cultures, and genres under the UNKLE umbrella to create something unique. Lavelle explains, “I wanted to make a record that I hadn’t been able to before, going back to the roots of where I came from, with a foot in modern London.”
