Multinational metal band DRAGONFORCE will release its new album, "Reaching Into Infinity", on May 19 via earMUSIC on CD, LP and a special-edition CD and DVD. The follow-up to 2014's "Maximum Overload" will mark the band's third full-length studio release with singer Marc Hudson, who joined the group in 2011 following the departure of original frontman ZP Theart (now in SKID ROW). For their seventh studio album, DRAGONFORCE have opened up their sound like never before, capturing the fierce, forlorn and fun with both menace and melody.
Expert en polyrythmie virtuose, Nasheet Waits est un improvisateur brillant mais aussi un leader assez charismatique comme le prouve ce véritable premier album de son groupe Equality. A 45 ans, ce batteur influent du jazz contemporain s’inscrit dans l’évolution d’un jeu sans faille, subtil, fougueux, loin des codes d’accompagnement traditionnels. Son usage atypique et complexe de la polyrythmie ouvre la voie à une expression plus libre et authentique qui brille de mille feux tout au long de Between Nothingness And Infinity.
It seems only fitting that the initial new release on the latest revival of the Impulse label features McCoy Tyner and Michael Brecker. When Impulse started out in 1960, John Coltrane and Tyner were the first artists to be signed, and when Impulse was briefly brought back by MCA in the 1980s, two of its most important albums were recordings by Brecker. There are not a lot of surprises on this quartet matchup (with bassist Avery Sharpe and drummer Aaron Scott) except perhaps for how well Tyner and Brecker mesh together.
Something huge is gathering in Franconia! Since their first storm warning in 2008, WINTERSTORM sent their heavy squalls made out of winter-like Folk and stormy Power Metal through the metal scene three times already. Starting with the grand and widely celebrated debut album “A coming Storm”, continuing with the even more enthralling “Kings Will Fall” and culminating in the hitherto climax in form of the concept album (and debut for Noise Art) “Cathyron”, WINTERSTORM easily made their name known, extravagating all genre borders. Shows on Wacken Open Air (2012), the Heidenfest tour (2013) or as support for Van Canto (2014) are only some of the live highlights in the band‘s history and confirm that WINTERSTORM have been an inherent part of the local scene for years. …
Four stars, with a disclaimer up front: a large chunk of this album is given to stylings that aren't really conducive to a Prog Rock discussion…
Recorded at several sessions in the two years prior to his death but not issued until 1972, Infinity was the subject of much controversy among Coltrane aficionados when it finally appeared. The horror on the part of Coltrane purists was directed to the posthumous string arrangements written by Alice Coltrane, his widow, which were grafted onto the performances. But however much the strings softened or unnecessarily augmented the music, it must be said that Alice Coltrane really didn't do such a bad job and the ultimate result is an unusual and oddly attractive work.
The forth full length studio album from MATURO in over 8 years. Infinity boasts 16 tracks of good music that is bound to satisfy every listener that comes across it. Move over Enigma and Delerium, MATURO is here!
Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. A beautiful set from Sonny Fortune – a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still with a deeply soulful finish that keeps the album fresh throughout! Nearly every track was written (or co-written) by Larry Willis, who plays piano and Fender Rhodes on the set, and really feels like Sonny's co-leader on the session – and who gives the album a hiply swinging feel that's similar to his own work at the time. Titles include "Samba Touch", "Perihelion", "This Side Of Infinity", "Turning It Over", and "The Blues Are Green".
