To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the landmark concept album, “Operation: Mindcrime”, quintessential front man Geoff Tate (the original lead singer for Queensryche) and his band, Operation: Mindcrime, will be performing the platinum-selling album (released May 3, 1988) from beginning to end in its entirety, along with a set full of greatest hits including “Silent Lucidity” and “Jet City Woman”.

The Mindcrime set will cover all fifteen songs from the album including such fan favorites as “Revolution Calling”, “Operation: Mindcrime”, “I Don't Believe in Love” and the closing track, “Eyes of a Stranger”.

Jono


Hi Nicka, Johan and Stephan – it’s good to talk with you again about your new album “Life”. It’s really one of the top symphonic prog rock albums of 2017.
 
Nicka: Thank you so much. Really appreciated!
 
 
Hence, what has changed since “Silence” and what are the new elements that you introduce with “Life”?
 

Jono - Life

Swedes Jono are a band built around the talents of one Johan Norrby, who initially wanted to do a solo project (hence their name – the first two letters of his name and surname), but eventually they turned into a full time band. The easiest way to describe them is Sparks meets Queen. They are idiosyncratic, like the former and eclectic and bold with their arrangements, but melodic like the latter while they don’t sound like a “copy” too. Great stuff!
 

Alice Cooper premieres video for new single “The Sound of A” & announces the physical release for February 23rd 2018

Today sees the official video premiere for “The Sound of A”.

The song has a special meaning; it is in fact the first song that Alice Cooper wrote entirely on his own back in 1967. The song was forgotten until Dennis Dunaway, the bass player of the original Alice Cooper band, rediscovered it and played it to Alice, after which the two of them updated the song and then recorded it for the “Paranormal” album. With its psychedelic sound, swirling guitars and the mysterious Hammond organ, it is one of the most hypnotic songs on “Paranormal”.

Operation: Mindcrime to release new studio album “The New Reality” on December 1st 2017

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of “The New Reality” on December 1st, 2017.

“The New Reality” is the third and final chapter in the musical trilogy from iconic metal vocalist Geoff Tate that follows a little over one year after the release of the second chapter, “Resurrection”, in 2016 and about two years after the first chapter, “The Key”.

Alice Cooper - Paranormal

Whether you choose to believe it or not, “Paranormal” is Alice Cooper’s 27th(!) studio album. Alice Cooper (born Vincent Damon Furnier almost seven decades ago) has enjoyed an illustrious career that has spanned nearly the five of those decades of his adult life… coming off the heels of a rather anti-climactic sequel to his “Nightmare” half a dozen years ago, “Paranormal” at least feels more like a proper Alice Cooper album, rather than an experiment that didn’t quite pan out.
