Los Angeles – Neverland

Keeping the chain rolling strong is Frontiers once again presenting another anticipated release to any fans of hard rock and traditional aor, the project Los Angeles with their second full studio album titled “Neverland”. The main attraction here is the very talented and amazing Italian singer Michele Luppi, best known for his time as the front man of the power progressive metal band Vision Divine.

Shadow Gallery – Digital Ghosts

Many fans of the progressive scene already know the name of Shadow Gallery as a reputable band in the progressive metal genre and one of the most originals and highly creative groups around. They formed back in the mid 80’s back then under the moniker of “Sorcerer”. Due to the bands commitments to their personal lives, families and many other responsibilities that we can all understand, they have never gone on tour with any of their releases.

Jorn – Spirit Black

I first came across Jorn in the masterpiece album from Ark titled Burn The Sun which to this day I consider one of the best prog hard rock albums of all time. Since then of course Lande has been involved in many other projects mentioned above and then there is his solo stuff, while still solid and rocking to his true nature, some of his solo stuff has just never blown me away like his work with Masterplan and Ark…

W.E.T – W.E.T

In a way it never did any poetic justice to JSS because although Pineda’s voice fits Journey perfectly, it was a chance for Jeff Scott Soto to shine and be given proper recognition.

Kiss – Sonic Boom

Of course some bands that have absolutely come back strong after so many years out of the scene are AC/DC, Alice in Chains, Megadeth to name a few. You know the old cliche, “there is no substitute for experience”?, well in this case it applies to Kiss, who we last heard 11 years ago when they released…

Johnny Lima – Livin’ Out Loud

Change is sometimes a good thing, but in Johnny Lima’s case keeping the trademark style of Hard Rock and Sleaze intact has resulted in a very enjoyable musical experience. He has been around a while now and most notably has been involved in producing for bands such as Dirty Penny, Miss Crazy, Diamond Lane…

Places of Power – Now is the Hour

If consistency is derived from the word “solid” or “steady”, then there hasn’t been many music labels out there which are delivering so much great material in the melodic rock and aor world like Frontiers Records, and evidence of this feat is new outfit Places of Power….
