Never Train - DNAR

Release: Never Train - DNAR

Format: CD/Digital

Release Date: April 14th 2017

Record label: Secret Entertainment

Genre: Street Rock

Country: Finland

Street rock from The Arctic Circle, Rovaniemi, Finland!

Sweat. Tears. Blood. Beauty. Furor. Rock. Never Train’s second EP “DNAR” has arrived. Never Train was formed from the mists of northern swamps and fells, its first cry wielded the power of a thousand distorted power chords! This unstoppable steam-breathing beast is the epitome of street- and classic rock. It is Hard Rock, Blues, Punk and something indescribable made flesh. While the lyrical output comes directly from the heart, it is delivered with a jesting grin.

The iron roads screech and the scaredy-cats cover as Never Train takes the stage. In addition to playing their own tunes, the band gives homage in the form of covers. Greatly revered are such bands as Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, Hanoi Rocks, Aerosmith, Sentenced, Marilyn Manson, Metallica and many others.

Lyrics video DNAR avaiable here:


Kimmo Nieminen (voc)

Rauli Hämäläinen (lead gtr)

Juuso Kekkonen (gtr)

Jukka Siltala (bass)

Jari Ala-Kahrakuusi (drum)

Rammstein release a concert film masterpiece on May 19

Rammstein release a concert film masterpiece on May 19

On Friday, March 24, official presale for the concert film "RAMMSTEIN: PARIS" begins ahead of its worldwide release on May 19. The film, which will be released in many configurations, sets new standards. In March 2012, during the "Made in Germany" tour, Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund shot two acclaimed Rammstein concerts at the Palais Omnisports arena in Paris in front of 17,000 spectators. Featuring 22 songs from the band’s entire repertoire, the resulting film is not only the most spectacular collection of imagery about the most successful German rock band of our time, but also a masterpiece of music cinema, capturing Rammstein's energy as a unique visual and sonic experience.

Åkerlund is notorious for his radical, pioneering video clips for bands such as The Prodigy, Metallica, the Rolling Stones and also Rammstein. Absurd details, upended perspectives, shocks of contrast and sensory confusion flicker through his music productions, and in "RAMMSTEIN: PARIS", he celebrates this from the very first minute. Rammstein play 22 songs (128 mins), ranging from "Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen?", the first song from the very first album, to "Frühling in Paris" from the last studio album "Liebe ist für alle da".

Artistically and dramaturgically ingeniously staged, like an overwhelming video clip, "RAMMSTEIN: PARIS" is one of the best rock concert films of all time. “Absolument“

Finnish AOR maestros Brother Firetribe are proud to announce their 15th Anniversary European Tour.

Embarking upon a voyage across 11 different countries, this 19-date headline run not only celebrates the band’s 15 year career, it also features their first bill-topping appearances in certain countries, including the UK…

"We absolutely can't wait to come back to the UK to hook up with all the friends we made there the last time. It'll be a riot!" – BFT front-man, Pekka Ansio Heino.

To date, the group’s sole UK performance took place at Firefest in Nottingham in 2014; however, this will change in October of this year when they return to Nottingham for the melodic hard rock festival that is Rockingham, as well as putting on their first headline UK show at the newly re-launched Borderline in Central London.

UK dates as follows:-

21.10. UK - London, Borderline
22.10. UK - Nottingham, Rockingham Festival

Brother Firetribe’s fourth full-length album, ‘Sunbound’, is released on March 24th via Spinefarm Records.

Featuring 12 new pieces of music, including lead track ‘Taste Of A Champion’ plus follow-up single / video ‘Indelible Heroes’, ‘Sunbound’ has been mixed by Finnish studio-meister Mikko Karmila (Nightwish, Children Of Bodom, Stratovarius), and is the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Diamond In The Firepit’.

Since first coming together for their ‘False Metal’ debut back in 2006, Brother Firetribe –featuring Nightwish guitarist Emppu Vuorinen – have flown the flag for a brand of music (‘ultra-melodic West Coast AOR’) that once strode the US radio airwaves like a colossus, filling up arenas and providing the silky soundtrack to pool-side summers and wind-in-the-hair coastal highway drives; music pioneered by some of rock music’s most legendary names…

However, Brother Firetribe – that’s Vuorinen, Pekka Ansio Heino, keyboard player Tomppa Nikulainen, bassist Jason Flinck & drummer Hannes Pirila – are not trying to hitch a DeLorean ride into the past; rather, their collective aim is to both celebrate and reinvigorate a musical style that is all about big hooks, strong melodies, soaring vocals and searing guitars, not to mention the desire to entertain on a grand an’ glorious scale.

Kings Of Moonshine - Iron River

By rock-metal-network, 2017-03-21
Kings Of Moonshine - Iron River

Kings of Moonshine is a Finnish rock band based in Helsinki. Their music is influenced by American roots music and alternative country. On top of this foundation, there’s a specific Finnish touch, psychedelic vibes and a hint of the blues. Kings of Moonshine also displays atmospheric Tom Waits-like cinematic tones in its music.

IRON RIVER is an ambitious album that showcases all the elements of Kings of Moonshine, bringing together alternative roots/country music, combining it with a twist of urban music and even hip-hop beats. Hillbilly banjos morph into rough distorted guitars and the songs take the listener on a trip to psychedelic parallel worlds.
