Winger release their latest album “Better Days Comin” through Frontiers Records on 18th April. One Winger release never really sounds like another, but you always know that you’re listening to a Winger album, and they’re always worth having in your collection! The previous album “Karma” didn’t sound like its predecessor “IV” but both are great albums. That “Better Days Comin” brings something different again but still sounds like Winger and will tick all the boxes for fans is testimony to the talent of the band.

WAY, way back in the distant past (that would be the mid-eighties for younger readers) there was a 'scene' in transition. The sleaze rock of the LA strip was being supplanted by thrash metal. Yet, fans from all genres would gather together in worship of hard rockin' music.

Such was the diverse nature of this transforming 'scene'

THERE are people who play guitar; there are guitar players, there are guitar shredders; and then there are true artists when they strap on a guitar, proving that entertainment with a six-string is an art form. Pat McManus is such an artist.

THERE is a wealth of female fronted symphonic rock and metal bands kicking around record stores and download charts across the world at the moment; however, occasionally you come across one which sits a little to the left of what you expected - and such is the self-titled release from SAVN.

Sitting in a world dominated by keyboards and

Scream Arena from York, England first came to my attention over a year ago when a couple of tracks came into the station and were played on the shows. The self-titled debut album from the band, released through Mighty Music / Target Group is currently being promoted by the good folk over at Head First Entertainment in the USA. It’s an album that is well worth checking out if you like your rock delivered with a strong classic hard rock sound and it was produced and recorded by Paul Sabu, a name that will be familiar to many.

Norwegian band Humbucker release their second album entitled “King of the World” on 10th April. I often refer to my preferred musical genre as “classic rock”, though I’m not totally sure what that really means (and I hate categorising bands!). I certainly don’t confine the description to bands from the 70s or 80s! There are a lot of “new” young (and not so young) bands that play a style of music that just epitomises what “classic rock” means to me. Humbucker are a great example of one of those bands.
