In Extremo are the masters of medieval metal from Germany. The band was formed in 1995 and in 2016 In Extremo comes to us with their eleventh full-length album „Quid pro quo”. The album is fast dynamic fresh powerful jocund and jaunty. As always, besides typical for metal instruments, it is full of good medieval tones performed by bagpipes, harp, shawm, hurdy gurdy, nyckelharpa and cister. Medieval metal at its best… Just In Extremo, which is not older even by day from 1995 and gives us consistently attractive sound. As good as it gets. Tracks on disc 2 recorded live on September 3rd 2015 aboard the MS Rheinfantasie (special acoustic concert aboard a tourist boat featuring a ltd. number of 1000 spectators while on a Rhine cruise).
After releasing the hard and perhaps excessively raw Live! album in March 1977, Status Quo decided it was time to give a new turn to their music, trying to achieve a cleaner and fresher sound. Recruiting Pip Williams to produce the new album, this was the first time since 1972 that Quo gave such control to someone outside the band…
Released on 20th November 2015 through Universal Music, the Status Quo career retrospective releases ‘Accept No Substitute: The Definitive Hits’ 3CD are a true celebration of the entire body of work of one of the world’s greatest ever rock acts. For the first time ever, all of the eras across six decades that make up the incredible career of this truly seminal British act are presented together. The 3 CDs collection features 54 Quo classics. Drawing a line through from the earliest days, right up until the present time, this is an in depth journey through time. ‘Accept No Substitute’ is a treasure trove of hits, certainly, but also finds space for tracks that provide a narrative of the band’s story.
The first in a series of 8 simultaneously released sets celebrating the most iconic British pop show of all time looks in depth at the era of youthquakes, love-ins, happenings and Bank Holiday rumbles. Marking the period 1964-1969, this 3-CD collection includes artists such as The Beach Boys, Small Faces, Stevie Wonder, Dusty Springfield, Tom Jones and many more.
