Old James - Speak Volumes (2017)

 Release: 25 August 2017

On August 25th 2017, OLD JAMES will release the physical version of their debut album Speak Volumes.  The album is ten tracks of hard rock/metal that is both original yet familiar at the same time.


OLD JAMES is a newly formed power-trio from Canada. In the vein of 70's Rock 'N Roll when originality was king,
OLD JAMES brings an unrivaled attitude in their intense live performance and their pounding live off the floor musicianship in the studio, which speaks the likes of early Sabbath/Deep Purple while crushing any "throwback" or "vintage" labels in its inimitable wake. 
 Lead vocalist Brian Stephenson, has earned his keep as a vocalist and bassist both separately in the music industry. Coupled together in OLD JAMES, with high range vocals and funky bass lines, Brian brings a fresh sound and image to the modern front man.
As fate would have it, younger Stephenson, Chris wraps up the rhythm section bringing the brother’s history of influences, such as Dime & Vinnie, Alex & Eddie, Max & Igor, Chris & Rich Robinson, to the table.
Sir Andy “T-Cat” Thompson completes the trio with his uncanny blues and rhythm guitar approach to contemporary rock ‘n roll. Having stuck by the brothers through thick and thin, without him, OLD JAMES would not have the sound or texture needed to be the future of rock ‘n roll.
2017 ushers in the SPEAK VOLUMES era, the band's debut album. With memorable vocals, distorted tones, pure and honest lyrical themes and a kick ass live show full of power and passion OLD JAMES is ready to make the world its own.

Track listing:
1. Don't Put It On Me
2. Lemons
3. Words As Weapons
4. So Real
5. Salutations
6. Bass-Ik Instincts
7. Kill Off The Rose
8. Master Imploder
9. Eugene
10. Speak Volumes

Firesphere - Requiem (2017)



Firesphere is a dynamic industrial rock/metal band combining techno and epic cinematic soundtrack to create a totally different and unique sound. Fireshphere was created and is fronted by the enigmatic dark PRIEST and the equally dark and hypnotizing Japanese beauty ROSEMARY BUTTERFLY.
Joined by “The Messengers”, Blacksmith (guitar), ROADBLOCK (guitar), TSUKIME keyboards), ASMODEUS STONE (bass) and MASON (drums), together they bring a dark ageless quality to their music and live show. 
Based on the Japanese model of big music and big visuals (ala X Japan, Hyde, Malice Mizer, Gackt and Ghost), the listener will not soon forget the well-crafted and moving songs of Firesphere nor will they easily forget the intensity of a live performance.
Firesphere will capture you in their dark cold embrace and hold you there forever.



With `Requiem`, the musicians around` Firesphere`-singer `Priest` publish an album that combines driving rhythms and hard-sounding guitars with orchestral arrangements.
Singer and songwriter `Priest` describes the debut album as a "great and self-contained" album. "The audience will be presented with a 'dark fantasy' concept album, where lyrics and music merge into a musical time travel", `Priest` said.

Firesphere is a concept band. Each member portrays a particular character with a name and backstory. Each character is an ‘immortal’ in one form or other and have lived a very long time. All members were discovered by Priest and Rosemary Butterfly while recruiting for the dark Order of the Cross and Dragon. This is an order created centuries ago for the purpose of giving individuals like Priest and Rosemary a place of sanctuary and friendship.

The Mourning Sickness - Gets in a Ruction



Enjoy Your Symptom Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of Gets in a Ruction, the fourth full-length release from Denver, Colorado’s most courteous band, The Mourning Sickness.  This latest addition to the band’s progressive-punk oeuvre, Gets in a Ruction was produced, mixed, and mastered by Ratt Mahem, and is available on Compact Disc, as well as digital download formats, including iTunes.

Gets in a Ruction abounds with tales of prehistoric devil toads (“Beelzebufo”), men with the moniker “Dick” (“Richard”), teen-age girls starving themselves (“Distaste for Food and an Urge to Vomit”), and ridiculously large penises (“Bubby Peak”).  Predictably, the album is filled with unpredictable melodies, odd rhythmic figures, and the occasional power-trio freak out.  Gets in a Ruction also features guest appearances from other members of the Denver Art Rock Collective (DARC), including Amphibious Jones, the Cattle Axe, and the Inactivists.  And one tune (“Unyoked is the Best!), was co-authored by the 16th Century Flemish nun, Anna Bijns (1494-1575 CE).



What do you get when you mix the irreverent musical endowments of three men for almost twenty years?  What do you get when you place a college history professor, a project manager for a defense contractor, and the owner of a small musical instrument shop together in a post-punk-rock band?  The Mourning Sickness!

Soul Secret - Babel (2017)


Release: 28 July 2017
Soul Secret are an Italian progressive metal band based in Naples.
After a long time playing together, they hit the market in 2008 with their debut album "Flowing Portraits", published by ProgRock Records and with Mark Basile (DGM) as guest singer on the whole album. This album was highly praised by the critics and let them play on stage together with bands like Pendragon, Vanden Plas and Subsignal. After three years the band published "Closer To Daylight" under Galileo Records, a heavier album featuring Marco Sfogli (James LaBrie Band) on "River's Edge" and Arno Menses on the acclaimed 16+ minutes suite "Aftermath". After playing together again with Subsignal and Vanden Plas, the band decided to change the singer and to start working on a new album. While writing it, they played together with Haken and Neal Morse Band. Their third release, called "4", was their first concept album and released on April 10th 2015 (October 4th in USA) by GoldenCore Records and distributed by Zyx Music.
Their new album, titled "BABEL", will be released by Pride & Joy Music on July 28th 2017 and will be previewed at Night Of The Prog, opening Mike Portnoy's show. BABEL is a concept album, covering topics like religion and love and ranging from classic progressive rock to more modern progressive metal, with influences from djent, electronic and latin music. The artwork was completely designed by Thomas Ewerhard and the mix handled by Alex Argento (Virgil Donati, Marco Sfogli).
Sam and Adriel are sent in space to find God, helped by logOS, an on-board computer providing cutting-edge technology to the mission. When they finally find the City Of Gods, they find it empty...




Line-up: Claudio Casaburi (Bass), Luca Di Gennaro (Keyboards), Lino Di Pietrantonio (Vocals), Antonio Mocerino (Drums), Antonio Vittozzi (Guitars)

Badge - If It Hurts It Must Be Good (2017)


Release: 28 July 2017
BADGE was put together by guitarist/singer Matti Norlin and drummer Fredrik Haake in 2002. Matti´s love for Pre War Blues and both their ambition to create new and exciting music is the drive.
Since then BADGE has released two albums "Kill Another Fuzz" in 2010 and "If I Could Love I'd Love This" in 2013.  Their new album" If It Hurts It Must Be Good" will be available via Pride & Joy Music from July 28th, 2017.
With focus on energy, new paths and groove, but always to serve the song, BADGE has been breaking new ground ever since. Even though they started out with the old Blues in mind, they never thought about themselves as a Blues band. Rather a band that makes it’s own mark with many influences.
In 2013 BADGE was picked to represent Sweden in the European Blues Challenge. In 2014 Matti Norlin and Fredrik Haake got a composer-scholarship from SKAP (Swedish Society of song-writers) for the music of BADGE, and the video for the track “If I Could Love This” reached over 135.000 views on YouTube.
With the new album "If It Hurts It Must Be Good", they have really come a long way as far as songwriting and getting a unique sound on print! The first advance single from the album, "Reap What You Sow", was picked by Swedish national radio as one of the top 30 songs of Rock in 2015!

*Matti Norlin has released four solo albums: Pre War Blues (1995), Kitchen Sink Blues (1998), Sliding Out (2002) and  LIVE - Blues Three Floors Up (2010). Matti has established himself as a great blues artist and is one of the most perceptive interpreters of early Scandinavian "Pre War Blues". He has also appeared on records with Sam Mitchell (ex-Rod Stewart's band), Nicolai Dunger and Tony & The Bitters (interpretations of the Swedish death metal band Dismember).

*Fredrik Haake has previously played with New York band God is my co-pilot as he made several tours with, both in Europe and the U.S. Fredrik was involved in two of the band's CDs. He also starred in his New York period in Jim Sclavunos (from Nick Cave's Bad Seeds) new band The Vanity Set and recorded an album with Roger Manning. Fredrik has also been featured in Sideburn, Moa and Swedish-American heavy metal band Meldrum who toured with: Motorhead, Zakk Wylde Black Label Society, Sepultura, Danzig, and Nashville Pussy.

*Lennart "Z" Zethzon is featured in Swedish Classic rock band "Lugnet" who released their debut last year. He also appears on two albums with Clifftones. In -98 Lennart put down the bass for Leda Battisti's self title release, featuring Grammy Award winner Ottmar Liebert.
