ULTIMATE EAGLES (Danny Vaughn lead vocals) – Taking It To The Limit (out of print)

As requested, here’s the album recorded by ULTIMATE EAGLES – the Eagles’ tribute band fronted by Tyketto‘s very own Danny Vaughn. Originally known as Illegal Eagles, the band changed its name to ULTIMATE EAGLES, and as the name suggests, their aim is to make it simply the very best Eagles tribute band in the world.
ULTIMATE EAGLES performed hundreds of shows all over USA receiving rave reviews and sold out venues. It was time for the combo to put on CD some of these versions so they entered into the studio to track down this 12-song album “Taking It To The Limit“, titled after the Eagles’ hit of the same name.
All members – talented musicians – of course contribute vocals to recreate The Eagles’ layered harmonies, but it’s Danny Vaughn who take the leads. And as always, he shines all over.
Self-released and very hard to find…

GRETA VAN FLEET – The Battle At Garden’s Gate (2021)

When GRETA VAN FLEET exploded into the scene, these bunch of young musicians were regarded as the future for classic rock. And there was a reason; talent. The quartet emerged from out of nowhere (well, Frankenmuth, Michigan) boasting a brand of timelessly bluesy guitar hard rockin’ music that snatched mainstream interest with an immediacy that hadn’t been seen since the genre’s hazy heyday.
There were naysayers aplenty, of course, lobbing accusations of algorithm-driven inauthenticity, boomer-music fetishism and downright plagiarism, but the tide of stadium-ready swagger and old-school soul could not be quelled.
Two-and-a-half years – and a full-blown global pandemic – further down the highway it’s easy to wonder whether GVF’s youthful easygoing and lightning-in-a-bottle electricity might’ve been dissipated by the music industry grind.
Second full album ”The Battle At Garden’s Gate“, however, finds them with eyes only for rock’s good shit, doubling-down on everything that thrust them to prominence in the first place…

ROBBIE LaBLANC – Double Trouble (2021)

Robbie LaBlanc is not only one of the melodic rock world’s most admired singers, but increasingly its most prolific. It’s only a few months since the East Temple Avenue album was released, where he lent his golden voice to, but now comes his first album under his own name, titled “Double Trouble“.
It’s very much a partnership with two of the scene’s greats, in FM singer Steve Overland and respected guitarist Tommy Denander, who have written and produced the album.
While Robbie’s bands Blanc Faces and East Temple Avenue sat firmly in the AOR mainstream, and the Find Me albums boasted a more clinical, keyboard-driven approach, on this occasion they have created an almost vintage melodic hard rock sound, with a natural rather than formularised feel, which is to be commended…

TEMPLE BALLS – Pyromide (2021)

Finland based rockers TEMPLE BALLS made a big step: for their third album “Pyromide” they got signed by Frontiers Music, and the recording has been produced by the new golden boy in this matter: Jona Tee, of H.E.A.T
This is a a tour de force of melodic hard rock that sees the band pushing themselves onto the world stage via killer hooks, powerful rhythms, and anthemic rock ‘n roll like it was meant to be played.
For the past couple of years, Temple Balls has kept busy both in the studio and on the stage. Opening for such bands as Sonata Arctica, Queen, Deep Purple, and Uriah Heep, the band has proven to be more than capable to handle stages of any size, whether it be a big festival or your local club’s stage.
“Pyromide” is a stunning punch in the face for all lovers of genre, with a killer sound and catchy songwriting…

THE VINTAGE CARAVAN – Monuments (2021)

These days, there’s no shortage of rock bands aiming to recapture the seductive coolness of 1970s classic rock, heavy progressive rock, and blues-rock. However, few do it as captivatingly and confidently as THE VINTAGE CARAVAN.
Influenced by iconic artists like Deep Purple, Cream, Led Zeppelin and Rush, the group have always done a remarkable job of paying homage to those classic subgenres while continuously evolving their characteristic elements.
On their upcoming album ‘‘Monuments” they outdo themselves once again by crafting the most thoroughly engaging, sophisticated, and cohesive record of their career. The Vintage Caravan’s ”Monuments” is a pristine example of how to do retro rock right. It’s an essential listen with an invigorating take on those older styles…

ICON OF SIN – Icon Of Sin (2021)

ICON OF SIN is the new project centered around the vocal talents of the popular Brazilian YouTube sensation Raphael Mendes. He is joined in the band by two other stellar Brazilian musicians, Sergio Mazul (SEMBLANT) and Marcelo Gelbcke (LANDFALL).
On their self-titled debut via Frontiers music the band takes all their influences resulting into a varied, melodic collection of songs ranging from from classic Hard Rock to traditional Metal with a sound that gets clear taking a quick look at the ’80s-like CD artwork.
They carry the torch of these timeless genres that will never die. And they do it very well on their self-titled debut album. Young dudes which just born when this type of rock ruled. Young dudes plenty of passion on what they do…

LIV KRISTINE – Have Courage Dear Heart (2021)

Talented vocalist LIV KRISTINE (ex-LEAVES’ EYES, ex-THEATRE OF TRAGEDY) announced the release of her new EP, “Have Courage Dear Heart” consisting of five brand new songs. The title track originally existed as a mandolin tune, which Liv’s partner composer Tommy sent her “just for fun” early summer 2019. Now it’s a vibrant midtempo rocker with an imaginary widescreen Western movie setting.
The track “Skylight”, which was released as a strongly limited single, got its own new version, while “Serenity” expresses a cool “kick-ass-Saturday-morning” drive vibe. All compositions…

MICHAEL SWEET – Reborn Again (2021) *0dayrox EXCLUSIVE*

Another worldwide exclusive at 0dayrox: MICHAEL SWEET‘s new solo album ”Reborn Again”. This is the original solo album Michael planned in early 2000’s, but ended being a Stryper comeback album after reunite again titled ‘Reborn’, of course, re-recorded by all members.
Says Michael: “After years of requests and a lot of thought, I decided to release the original versions/tracks and add some things that I felt were always missing: guitar solos, high vocal notes, more rhythm guitars, synth parts and an alternate version of “Passion”. The original drums and bass are clean and punchy and Derek & Lou did an outstanding job laying down the foundation. I’ve always wanted everyone to hear what these original versions sound alike”
And they sound great…
The general style on “‘Reborn Again” is pretty less heavier than on the Stryper versions of these songs. Overall melodic and driven by modern riffs, Michael vocals are on spot here…

MARC REECE – Dreamer (2021)

Only available on physical CD, “Dreamer” is the new album from German musician MARC REECE. Several year in the making simply due to the fact that Reece is mainly at home on stage and has given extensive concerts in Asia and Europe. In between, he went on tour with other artists almost all over the world and finally started recording his fourth studio album in mid-2019.
Throughout ten songs, Marc Reece once again proves why he is rightly considered an exceptional Classic Rock songwriter and guitarist. With “Dreamer” you are very close to the man who counts Rory Gallagher, Jimi Hendrix, Bernie Marsden and Stevie Ray Vaughan among his influences, and who is nevertheless unmistakable through his very own style by combining traditional blues with hard rockin’, classic rock riffs. And he’s a fine singer too…

So80s presents BILLY IDOL – Curated by Blank & Jones [remasters] + New 2021 single

BILLY IDOL ’80s albums are a truly representation of that decade sounds, combining synthesized and sequenced rhythms with flashy guitar work into a rock&pop song-package. Although a bit cheesy at times, you can’t deny the catchiness of Billy’s stuff and the quality in Steve Steven’s six-string playing, one of my favorite rock guitarist ever.
Extended and alternate mixes were popular during the Eigthies, and Billy’s songs were one of most the prolific artists in that matter. The good thing about these versions is that they weren’t always designed as dancefloor alternates, most of these really rock.
Producer Keith Forsey and the other knob experts involved recorded and remixed these multi-track tapes with as much force as possible, and Stevens’s robot noises pierce the metronomic pulse.
The Blank & Jones is a team specialized in ’80s music, and together with Idol’s original label are publishing in Germany a CD series called “So80s presents“.

HELIX – Eat Sleep Rock (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

Here we have in exclusive HELIX last album ”Eat Sleep Rock”, which opens with ‘The Story of Helix’ – the spoken word & guitar history of the band. Brian Vollmer takes us through Helix history, with the odd musical segues through “Billy Oxygen”, “She Loves You”, “Heavy Metal Love”, and “Lick It Up” among others as the story progresses. Even “Teen Spirit” in the 90s, “when everything went to shit”
Vollmer proudly proclaims he will “NEVER” retire! And if the second song, “Eat – Sleep – Rock” is any indication, that’s a good thing. This is a heavy rockn’ Helix. Produced by Daryl Gray, with guitars aided and abetted by Sean Kelly, this one smokes. There ain’t no rest for the wicked, as “Eat – Sleep – Rock” resoundingly demonstrates.
Long-time Helix fans are going to love this newbie that recalls the fire and fury of 1984 all over again.
