Melodicrockfest comes to Melbourne!!
Andrew at Melodicrock.com has been part of the melodic rock scene for years now and has organised festivals overseas several times over the past few years. Now he is bringing the festival here to Australia at St.Kilda in Melbourne. It will go over 2 days on Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th of May and include overseas hard rock acts such as Eclipse, Paul Laine and Erik Gronwall from H.E.A.T. Local acts such as the reformed BB Steal, Black Majesty, Vanishing Point and White Widdow will also perform spread across the 2 nights. Who knows if we are ever likely to have these 3 overseas artists back, so buy a ticket, and go support the local acts as well as witnessing something to possibly never be seen again with the mighty Eclipse, Paul Laine and Erik Gronwall on the same bill in Australia..http://www.melodicrock.com/tags/melodic-rock-fest
Axl confirmed to take over from Brian Johnson in AC/DC!!
AC/DC have released a statement thanking Brian Johnson for his time with the band while welcoming Axl Rose as his replacement to cover some big headlining dates. Really not sure what to think of this. Until we hear from Brian Johnson, I'll reserve judgement..http://loudwire.com/axl-rose-confirmed-to-sing-for-acdc-on-remaining-2016-tour-dates/
Classic Clip of the Week!
Australian hard rock band Demont came and went in the blink of an eye in the late 80s early 90s, however their debut album 'Body Language' was an album that stacked up with the overseas guns of hard rock at the time. Sadly the band parted not long after, only releasing one other album titled R.I.P.ED (title alluding to the band breaking up) which only had a handful of new tracks, albeit bloody good ones (track down the song 'Wildfire' if you can, it is a super hard rock song). This video 'So Easy' slots in nicely with all the big power ballads that were taking over MTV and radio at the time. Shame the band didn't go on to bigger and better things..
