I was a bit cranky last week, waiting for various things to happen with the website transition. God it's good to be back. Didn't Gary Glitter sing a song like that? dogrun

Lioncage - 2017 The Second Strike
German trio Lioncage were previously with Escape Music, now their second album 'The Second Strike' will be released by Pride And Joy Music in late March 2017.

Lionheart (UK) - 2017 Second Nature
It's good hearing the band again, and with Lee Small now in the fold, it looks likely that Lionheart are in for the long haul. The material on 'Second Nature' should appeal to all the GDM regulars. What's not to like?

Deezer Last FM

Lionville - 2017 A World Of Fools
Work Of Art and others who capture this sound, will love this one as well. I certainly do..

Liv Sin - 2017 Follow Me
Fusing old school metal, trash and black metal, Swedish band Liv Sin is not all about industralized metal, with modern and melodic elements added too.

Mastercastle - 2017 Wine Of Heaven
Arriving in 2017 with little fanfare, is Mastercastle's new album for Scarlet Records called 'Wine Of Heaven'.

Mike And The Mechanics - 2017 Let Me Fly
The first album from this English combo in six years. Cool cover, but..

Night Flight Orchestra - 2017 Amber Galactic
Fans of pomp and symphonic rock should investigate 'Amber Galactic' with immediate urgency.

Nova Rex - 2017 Rockstar Roadshow
This band started life in 1985, and were featured here previously thanks to their 1992 album 'Blow Me Away'. They are back in 2017 with 'Rockstar Roadshow'.

One Desire - 2017 One Desire
This is a band that should appeal to most GDM readers. They are the Finnish AOR quartet One Desire, who previously went by the handle of OD

Orden Ogan - 2017 Gunmen
This German power metal band have been around for years, but this is my first look at them.

Osukaru - 2017 The Labyrinth
Osukaru have certainly withstood the flames of the fire as generated by this website. But I can safely say this lot are now one of my favourite Swedish bands, and their output is testament to that

Paige, Jennifer - 2017 Starflower
This lady had a huge hit in 1998 with the song 'Crush', and ever since then, I've been following her career. 'Starflower' is her fifth album in 19 years. She's happy to be back, and we're happy to have her back.

Pinnacle Point - 2017 Winds Of Change
Pinnacle Point are Perris Records latest signing. It's prog, it's hard rock, it's a bunch of things..

Place Vendome - 2017 Close To The Sun
As in past PV albums, other contributors have provided the bulk of the material used by Michael Kiske and Dennis Ward.

Pride Of Lions - 2017 Fearless
These guys have been around long enough for you to know whether you like them. If you're a fan, this certainly won't disappoint.

Procol Harum - 2017 Novum
To be honest, 'Novum' isn't going to set the world on fire, but there are some songs that sneak up on you.

QSP - 2017 QSP
QSP is mostly a melodic blues rock album with a load of appeal to old 70's fogies like me, and for a few others no doubt.

Quiet Riot - 2017 Road Rage
Older QR fans might find this too much of an ask, however if you're familiar with the band's more recent work, then this might not come as a complete surprise.

Radiation Romeos - 2017 Radiation Romeos
Despite my indifference, this is an above average record, though I'm feeling I won't be taking it out for a spin that often.

Rainbow (Ritchie Blackmore's) - 2017 Live in Birmingham 2016
It's great to have Blackmore returning to hard rock at this late stage of his career. This disappoints me, as classic Rainbow and Purple are bands I love more than almost any other. One for the hardcore Blackmore enthusiast only.

Raw Silk - 2017 The Borders Of Light
This version of Raw Silk is markedly different to the first iteration of the band. Unfortunately the change didn't resonate with me, and I was left wondering where the old Raw Silk was.

Rockett Love - 2017 Grab The Rocket
The AOR Heaven record label have some decent bands on their roster, and they've now added another one.

Rosenfeld, Avi - 2017 Very Heepy, Very Purple VI
Well, if you read the album title, you don't have to be a signwriting expert to know what we're dealing with here.

Schooltree - 2017 Heterotopia
Thanks to fellow GDM Scribe Eric and his investigative talents, Schooltree would probably have gone unnoticed. 'Heterotopia' is a full-blown 100 minute rock opera.. No throw away 3 minute pop fluff here folks!

Shadowman - 2017 Secrets And Lies
This is an album of two halves. The first half is a very airy and breezy affair. Enjoyable for a summertime's listen out by the pool. The second half toughens up appreciably, it's like the album was recorded in two sessions.

Slaughter, Mark - 2017 Halfway There
Here's another bloke who seems to be severely under-represented at GDM. Much like the recent attention we've given to glam metal king Davy Vain, we now do the same with Mark Slaughter.

State Cows - 2017 Stealing The Show [ep]
With two albums under their belt, Swedes State Cows (anagram for West Coast) are back with a new selection of material in 2017.

Stefanie - 2017 Stefanie
It's hard to avoid the Nashville influence on Johnson's vocal delivery, where I'm hearing similarities to Shania Twain and Jennifer Paige, though the musical style is slightly different.

Stormburst - 2017 Interview with Thomas Hansson
We get the low-down on Swedish melodic hard rock band Stormburst. Signed to AOR Heaven Records, we catch up with guitarist Thomas Hansson, who is well known to many of us here at GDM.

Stormburst - 2017 Raised On Rock
Stormburst are Georg Siegl's best release for ages, and they have a formula that will have GDM listeners and AOR fans all over the globe seeking them out.

Striker (Canada) - 2017 Striker
It's still early days in 2017, but I can declare that 'Striker' is one of finest heavy metal albums you'll ever hear this year.

Styx - 2017 The Mission
The official comeback is now underway; with 'The Mission' being Styx's first proper studio album since 2003's 'Cyclorama'.

Spotify Deezer

Sweet Mary Jane - 2017 Winter In Paradise
Quality wise, I think Sweet Mary Jane are onto something here. 'Winter In Paradise' is a real surprise, and I have no hesitation giving this one a big thumbs up.

Ten - 2017 Gothica
Overall, 'Gothica' is a good album, if a little inoffensive and clean. A bit of dirt and grit would not go amiss.

That Rock Guy - 2017 Nothin' To Lose
This is one album I've been looking forweard to dissecting. He's the Australian Aldo Nova known in the business as 'That Rock Guy'.

The Murder Of My Sweet - 2017 Echoes Of The Aftermath
Mostly theme based, TMOMS has a style based on cinematic and gothic metal, with movie references, intrigue, cloak and dagger, and variations in arrangement. Sort of like dark TV series like Gotham, meeting Agent Carter in some back-handed alley.

Tokyo Motor Fist - 2017 Tokyo Motor Fist
Tokyo Motor Fist did a great job of capturing the spirit and essence of the late 80's with this collection of songs. Big guitars, catchy songs, lots of melody - there's nothing here not to like.

Tytan - 2017 Justice Served
They may be three decades out of their comfort zone, but I think it's always a good thing to see bands like these still pretending like they are spring chickens. Good on them!

Uncle Sid - 2017 Uncle Sid
Vancouver's Uncle Sid return with a new album, their first since 2004.

Unruly Child - 2017 Can't Go Home
The big thing about 'Can't Go Home' is how understated in delivery this album is. If you can see beyond that, then this should find favour.

Vain - 2017 Rolling With The Punches
If you're glam follower, even in this modern era, Vain still bring a lot of value to the table. Certainly well worth adding this CD to the collection.

Valensia - 2017 Eden And The Second Serpent/The Secret Album
Both albums are perfect examples of an artist who is content to plough his own furrow regardless of trends. In a just world Valensia would be a household name, but his music is at times just too damn quirky for the mainstream.

Van Arx - 2017 Stand Together For Rock And Roll
This lot come from Switzerland, and are re-treading the cause for rock n roll in a glam sort of way.

Venice - 2017 Into The Morning Blue
The latest album from L.A faves Venice is upon us.. 'Into The Morning Blue'..

Viana - 2017 Viana
A lot of this album has some good moments, but I somehow think it's not going to stun fans into thinking this is the next coming for Italian rock. Good, solid stuff but without the hundreds and thousands.

Walk On Fire - 2017 Mind Over Matter
As with last years Seven album 'Shattered', Escape Music are onto another winner with Walk On Fire.

Warrant - 2017 Louder, Harder, Faster
Plenty to appreciate here and something which should please longtime fans of the band and even win them a few new ones with some luck.

Wolfpakk - 2017 Wolves Reign
This is the fourth outing by German/Swiss duo Wolfpakk, featuring Michael Voss and Mark Sweeney.

World Trade - 2017 Unify
Even though the membership of the band is world class, I still find them an awkward band to listen to. Certainly, 'Unify' leans more to the progressive side of the boundary, with arrangements and musical passages justifying this statement.
