Heavy Metal

Portrait is a metal band from the southern parts of Sweden, founded in 2006 by guitarist Christian Lindell and drummer Anders Persson. After playing together in different irrelevant extreme metal bands since they were about 12 years of age, and after in one of these constellations rehearsing a cover of the Running Wild classic “Black Demon”, the two came to the conclusion that what they really wanted to do was to play that same kind of timeless heavy metal, being the most elevated form of music there ever was.

Fading records is glad to announce the long-awaited first full-length album by the Italian band FEM (Forza Elettro Motrice), "Sulla Bolla Di Sapone". After their debut EP ("Epsilon", 2012), FEM reaches its full maturity with a concept, a tale of imagination and… symphonic prog-rock at its best. Their music starting from the classic 70s Italian Prog (PFM, Le Orme and above all Banco del Mutuo Soccorso) moves toward new and adventurous directions. The sound is rich of influences (progressive, fusion, classical music) but nevertheless distinctive, deeply introspective and emotional. The outstanding performance of the new singer, Massimo Sabbatini, emphasizes even more the above-mentioned features of the band. "Sulla Bolla Di Sapone" ("On The Soap Bubble") is based from a story by the German writer Kurd Lasswitz.

Limited first edition digipak incl. 4 bonus tracks. STRIKER carry on the tradition of consistently high level first-class Heavy Metal bands hailing from Canada. Imagine a mixture of Exciter and Savage Grace, intertwined with newer influences of Steelwing or Enforcer, that is what can be expected of the new album City Of Gold. STRIKER pay homage to the classic Speed Metal, but also work with great Maiden twin guitar harmonies. "It's about Heavy Metal and a good time," says singer Dan Cleary about the band’s philosophy. "If you’re having a party at your house, then put our CD into the player and drink some beer. This music is exactly made for suchmoments.” Producer Fredrik Nordström has created a traditional and modern Heavy Metalsound with hymns like 'Taken By Time', 'City Of Gold' or 'Bad Decisions'!

Stephanie Mills was a native New Yorker having been born and brought up in the borough of Brooklyn. She first tasted success as a singer at the age of 9, winning the famed Apollo Theatre’s amateur hour several weeks in a row, which opened the doors to Broadway as a cast member in “Maggie Flynn” and as opening act for The Isley Brothers. Mills big break came in 1975 when she landed the lead role of Dorothy in the critically acclaimed Broadway musical “The Wiz,” based on The Wizard Of Oz. Jermaine Jackson was suitably impressed and was instrumental in helping her get signed to Motown Records to record her second album after “Movin’ In The Right Direction” on ABC records in 1974.

Based on a program presented at the Boston Early Music Festival in 2011, this recording, made in a German radio studio in 2013, offers a pair of little-known short operas by Marc-Antoine Charpentier. One of the two, La descente d'Orphee aux enfers (not to be confused with a similarly titled cantata), either was left unfinished or has been partially lost; it is missing a finale and resolution to the plot.

"Redwings Nest" is the second offering from Norway's SOT, their first "Kind of Saltz" was released in 2011. Expect both beautiful and oddball excursions along with lots of tight as a tick progression jazz fusion and bits of prog-metal used sparingly throughout. The skill in composition is superior as each minute flows as if it is SOT’s comfort zone. Everything is as smooth as silk with not even one bad move. These three musicians are the definition of perfect chemistry! You’ll still get serious compositions that sound like King Crimson twisted with Klezmer and whirling dervish, lots of schizoid Gentle Giant too. Jazz rock and avant-garde metal fans will surely want to check out "Redwings Nest", especially if you like music that pushes the boundaries and doesn't conform to the norm.

German synthpop outfit And One formed in Berlin in 1989. DJs/producers Steve Naghavi and Chris Ruiz first met the previous year in a local dance club, bonding over their mutual affection for early ebm acts like Front 242 and Nitzer Ebb and borrowing their subsequent dual synthesizer and beatbox aesthetic from Depeche Mode. Upon signing to the fledgling Machinery label, And One issued their 1990 debut single, "Metal Hammer," a significant club hit that set the stage for their first full-length effort, Anguish, completed with contributions from newly added third member Alex Two…
