2017 release. It's been an impressive journey for Bloodbound: The Swedish power metal commando has become more and more popular in recent years. All this falls back on talent and hard work: Since 2005 Bloodbound has not only released six studio albums and a Live DVD/CD, they have also toured with giants such as Sabaton, HammerFall and U.D.O. - in the process winning over a very devoted and loyal fanbase of metalheads. War Of Dragons is basically a continuation of the successful Stormborn (2014), but offering more fast-paced tracks, without lacking the anthemic feel the band is known for. Bloodbound are masters in combining melody with power and War Of Dragons perfectly displays the evolution that the band has gone through since their debut Nosferatu was let loose.
Glasgow-based melodic indie rock band from the early 1990s, featuring flecks of dance rock and punk. Collection includes: Hang Ten! (1987); This Is Our Art (1988); Lovegod (1990); Hotwired (1992); Hydrophonic (1994).
In the 1950s, during the explosive birth of rock & roll as we know it, Chuck Berry was the man – lean and mean, with self-penned hits like "Roll Over Beethoven" and "Johnny B. Goode" motorvating his fast-lane machine. In 1986, in honor of Berry's sixtieth birthday, a concert was assembled at St. Louis' Fox Theatre – the very place where Berry had been turned away as a boy during segregation, and blocks from the courthouse where, as Berry says, "my forefathers were sold." In front of a ready-to-riot crowd, the concert brilliantly captures Berry's unflagging power as a guitar virtuoso (as well as his audacity in literally duckwalking circles around guest Linda Ronstadt). But what makes this a great film is what happens (on the road, in rehearsals and during interviews) leading up to the concert: Keith Richards, musical director of the celebration, nearly driven to tears by Berry's ball-breaking insistence that Richards bend a note just right; Jerry Lee Lewis' admission that his own mother told him Berry was the true king of rock & roll; a still-gobsmacked Eric Clapton confessing, "I didn't know about black men until Chuck Berry." Fascinating too is watching Berry handle his own business – traveling without backing band or entourage, demanding to be paid what he's worth – thus proving he also pioneered rock & roll's potent DIY ethic. An entertaining document of an original rock & roll immortal, Hail! Hail! is a perfect tribute to a homegrown American genius.
