Unique album that combines the different artistic characters of the band members in a very harmonic way. Melodic, powerful metal with a beautiful female voice will be lifted into a new dimension with this album of Beautiful Sin. "The Unexpected" is an excellent surprise! Highly recommended! Nowadays this band is history.

The Man-Machine is the seventh studio album by German electronic music band Kraftwerk, released in May 1978. It includes the singles "The Model" and "The Robots". Upon its release, the New Musical Express stated: "The Man-Machine stands as one of the pinnacles of 1970s rock music." Although the album was initially unsuccessful on the UK Albums Chart, it reached a new peak position of number nine in February 1982, becoming the band's second highest-peaking album in the United Kingdom after Autobahn (1974). The Man-Machine was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry on 15 February 1982…

Eternal Idol were born as an evolution of Hollow Haze, a band put together in 2006 by guitarist Nick Savio (White Skull). After six internationally acclaimed albums, the band added young, rising star vocalist Giorgia Colleluori, the great Fabio Lione (Rhapsody, Angra) as co-lead vocalist, and Andrea Buratto (Secret Sphere, Hell in the Club) on bass. Musically, the debut album offers a superb slice of symphonic and classic heavy rock with a unique mix of lead vocals.

Sailor is the second studio album by American rock group The Steve Miller Band, released in October 1968 by Capitol Records. Like The Steve Miller Band's previous album, Children of the Future, Sailor was produced by Glyn Johns. Unlike its predecessor which was recorded in London, England, Sailor was recorded in Los Angeles, California. It was the last Steve Miller Band album to feature contributions by original members Boz Scaggs and Jim Peterman. Scaggs went on to a successful solo career. The album features a psychedelic blues rock sound.

After a string of mediocre albums throughout most of the 1970s, Muddy Waters hooked up with Johnny Winter for 1977's Hard Again, a startling comeback and a gritty demonstration of the master's powers. Fronting a band that includes such luminaries as James Cotton and "Pine Top" Perkins, Waters is not only at the top of his game, but is having the time of his life while he's at it. The bits of studio chatter that close "Mannish Boy" and open "Bus Driver" show him to be relaxed and obviously excited about the proceedings. Part of this has to be because the record sounds so good. Winter has gone for an extremely bare production style, clearly aiming to capture Waters in conversation with a band in what sounds like a single studio room. This means that sometimes the songs threaten to explode in chaos as two or three musicians begin soloing simultaneously. Such messiness is actually perfect in keeping with the raw nature of this music; you simply couldn't have it any other way.

Graham Bonnet is a hard rock legend with the pedigree to back that statement up. His stints with Rainbow, MSG, Alcatrazz, and Impellitteri prove he is one of the finest rock vocalists of his generation. This new studio album offers 11 new songs (plus bonus track for Japanese Edition) where Bonnet lays down his inimitable vocals over a selection of tunes full of great hooks and melodies. Includes a bonus disc featuring re-recorded versions of all the best songs he has sung in his career.

The James Walsh Gypsy Band is kind of the outfit to go to if you're looking for some blue-eyed soul but, just like Ned Doheny and his sublime reissue on Numero, the band never fully came out of its shell and they were limited to just one album on RCA Victor, 1998's self-tiled LP…until now. I've Got The Feelin' was recorded a year later, in 1979, at the legendary Muscle Shoal Studios, but it never made it out onto the shelves apart from a seriously limited CDR run. Norway's Preservation has thankfully done the right thing by pressing it up on vinyl, and the opening title track is as just as wonderful as the first time we heard - a true soul masterpiece with a clear LA influence. "Looks Like You Got Down In Love" is a funkier, more soulful version of Credence at their deepest, while other highlights include the supremely majestic "It's Over Now", and the tear-jerking "Alabama Eyes". It's a road album, the sort you want to really take in properly. Recommended.

A lot has happened since Now Or Never came upon the scene with the debut self-titled album back in 2013. For one, vocalist Jo Amore departed Nightmare, the band he spent the last 35 years with (started as drummer and became the vocalist). With Now Or Never as his main act, Amore can concentrate on progressing the band’s modern style that draws influences from metal and hard rock and melds them into a high octane ball of energy. On “II” – the band continues the sound of “Now Or Never” and should appeal to fans of metal with a modern approach.

This is Roland Grapow's first solo album outside the ranks of his band Helloween. For this album he is joined by fellow Helloween band members Uli Kusch and Markus Grosskopf as well as keyboardist Ferdy Doernberg from Axel Rudi Pell fame. The album while not dissimilar to Helloween's work is in more of a traditional neo-classical vein, and carries a strong Malmsteen vibe with it.

In the spring of 2008 BURNING POINT started the recordings of a new (4) album, "Empyre" at the HelGate studios. The band's line-up also changed as Jari stepped out of the band to focus on his other band and Jussi took over the drums. Pasi Hiltula (ex-Kalmah, ex-Eternal Tears of Sorrow), who also played on the first two albums, was chosen to be the new keyboardist.
