We spoke on 1st March and the interview is broadcast on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 6th March at 9pm UK time.

NI ROCKS Recommends "Lost Salvation" by FURYON
The second album from Furyon has been long, long overdue! It finally landed on 23rd February when “Lost Salvation” was released through Dream Records / Cargo Records. And, not surprisingly, it was certainly worth the wait. The first album “Gravitas” was initially released in 2010 and established the band in many people’s eyes. There were a number of re-releases of that debut album, but we finally have a follow-up that is the equal (and perhaps more) of “Gravitas”. “Lost Salvation” has been on fairly heavy rotation on my iPod since I received the album from our friends at Rock n Growl Promotion, who as ever are doing a great job getting the album into the spotlight.

ALBUM REVIEW: Midnight Ghost Train revel in southern roots
SOUTERN Rock is a broad genre of music that takes in the bad trip inspired grooves of Down to the more laid back, good time vibes of bands like Clutch. The discerning fan of heavy music will normally find something they like in the wide range of styles involved in this genre and this is where The Midnight Ghost
ALBUM REVIEW: Muscular melodic Trucker Diablo show their quality on Rise Above The Noise
LAST year Jake Burns of SLF told us that recording an album on Pledge Music was a challenge because when a band enters a studio people have already committed their cash before hearing or knowing what the album would sound like, or whether their audience would 'get it'.
Thus, when Trucker Diablo. decided to end their temporary hiatus it
ALBUM REVIEW: Enslaved push yet more extreme music boundaries on In Times
EXTREME metal is just noise with growls. Right? No, it is about something that can be transcendental, where the depths and insistent talent throw curve balls at the listeners aural tracts, unbalancing perceptions and blowing apart preconceived notions.
Such is the case with Enslaved. This Friday (March 6th) sees the

NI ROCKS Interview with JOE LYNN TURNER (Feb 2015)
Back in November I posted an interview with Joe Lynn Turner that we’d done via e-mail. That interview covered his latest release with Rated X and numerous other projects. (http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/interviews/1725-ni-rocks-interview-with-joe-lynn-turner.html) Since then the former Rainbow and Deep Purple singer has announced a series of solo shows across the UK, including one in Voodoo, Belfast on 4th April, so I took the opportunity to record a new interview with JLT for the Friday NI Rocks Show and get him to select some tracks to play. We chatted for about 25 minutes and JLT talks about the upcoming solo shows, his hopes for Rated X, upcoming plans including appearances on the “Rock Meets Classic” tour and working with Richie Blackmore, the Hughes Turner Project and more.
The interview was recorded on 20th February and was broadcast on Friday 27th February. It is available from the On Demand Player now - http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/hosts/ni-rocks-friday-rock-show.html (the show uploaded on 26th Feb) and for the next 8 weeks.

NI ROCKS Recommends "Armageddonize" by ECLIPSE
“Armageddonize” is the fifth album from Swedish band Eclipse and it was released on 20th February 2015 through Frontiers Records. The album maintains the band’s melodic rock core, but there does seem to be a heavier edge to many of the tracks. Singer Erik Martensson and guitarist Magnus Henriksson continue to be the driving force behind the band.
