German thrash titans KREATOR have released the first video trailer for their upcoming album, Gods Of Violence.
I was definitely interested in hearing this E.P after I found out that one of the band members is none other than Julien DaMotte, a progressive metal guitarist who had sent in a copy of his own album earlier this year and was a great album in its own right. This music is quite for removed from what was on his solo album, but you can certainly feel his influence strewn through the tunes…
If there’s one artist I would like to highly recommend at the moment then it is JAMIE ALIMORAD. Now this is how AOR should sound like! Forget all those European AOR wanna-bee bands and all the AOR label organised projects, because here we have something really original in the shape of a multi-instrumentalist/ singer/songwriter, who is able to write original catchy AOR/Melodic Poprock tunes in the style of the American/Canadian tradition of legendary artists like VAN STEPHENSON, RICK MATHEWS, RICK SPRINGFIELD, BRYAN ADAMS, BUTCH WALKER, BERNIE LABARGE, STAN MEISSNER and even STAN BUSH!
