New Releases: April 6th, 2018 The Dead Daisies, Kamelot, Rainbow And More



Here is a quick look at some of the new releases dropping today.

The Dead Daisies – Burn It Down

The fourth studio album by the band was founded by David Lowy. They have seen their share of member turnover over the years, and this album is no different with long-time drummer Brian Tichy being replaced by former Shrapnel Records studio drummer, Deen Castronovo. Yes, that’s an obscure reference, you probably know him from his time with Ozzy, G//Z/R, Bad English, Journey, or Revolution Saints.

The Amorettes – Born To Break

What if AC/DC were fronted by a female? What if the entire band was made up of females? The Scottish trio gives Rhino Bucket, Krokus, Airbourne, or any other band that wears the AC/DC influence on their sleeves a run for their money.

Kamelot – The Shadow Theory

The Swedish American band has crafted a concept album that meanders between modern metal, prog metal, and as you’ve come to love from the band, interesting female vocals collaborations. Case in point, “Phantom Divine” contains a duet with Once Human’s Lauren Hart.

Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow – Memories In Rock II

The DVD/CD set boasts the first new Rainbow track in over 20 years called “Waiting For A Sign”. The live material came from the band’s 2017 dates in the UK.

BLACK SALVATION – Uncertainty Is Bliss

This band exquisitely blends hard rock, doom, and psychedelia into an intoxicating synthesis of rock n’ roll alchemy. Features Uno Bruniusson formerly of In Solitude and Grave Pleasures and currently of Death Alley on drums!


Here are some other stand out releases:

Caliban – Elements

Crisix – Against The Odds

Thirty Seconds To Mars – America

Underoath – Erase Me
