Released in 2003, The Journey Goes On is the band's seventh studio album for metal act featuring dual vocalists, Dougie White (Rainbow/Malmsteen) & John Sloman (Lone Star/Gary Moore), the followup to 2000's 'Nowhere To Hide'. Includes guitarist Dennis Stratton (Iron Maiden) & founding members Chris & Tino Troy. The Journey Goes On is a first rate melodic rock album, and should especially appeal to fans of Demon, Ten, Cornerstone, Magnum, and John Payne-era Asia. If you're expecting a NWOBHM revival album though, you're going to be disappointed.
To mark their 30th anniversary The Wonder Stuff release their eighth studio album, '30 Goes Around The Sun', on March 19th 2016 - thirty years to the day since the band first walked into a rehearsal studio in the heart of The Black Country in 1986. The band chose to revisit it's old stomping ground of Stourbridge to record the album and even managed to persuade renowned heavy metal and hard rock producer, Simon Efemey (Paradise Lost/Napalm Death/The Wildhearts), to return to his home town to produce the record.
More than two and a half years after the longplayer debut The Chain Goes On“ the Italians ANCILLOTTI are back with their second output „Strike Back“. Formed by the ANCILLOTTI brothers Bud (Strana Officina) and Bid as well as son/nephew Brian ANCILLOTTI with the blood brother guitarist Ciano, the family business committed themselves to classical Heavy Metal. Melodic, yet modern produced, but also with a big Rock’n’Roll drive. On the – plus intro – eleven new tracks ANCILLOTTI offer everything in handmade Heavy Metal; no matter if emotional ballads (“Lonely Road”), the anthem "Fight" or banging midtempo tracks (“Life Is For Livin’”) or doublebass parts (“The Hunter”). Traditional Italian Steel is reborn!
