WHEELS OF FIRE & FRIENDS: Together with music against #coronavirus
Atomic Stuff Promotion is proud to support a commendable initiative, put in place by artists that are part of the Burning Minds Music Group family. A huge call for hope and recourse in our country during this hard time; this project has been put into action by musicians in the way they know best: Music.
“We Will Rise” is a song that came to life by Malu Scandroglio and Stefano Zeni, in which they took initiative in writing the lyrics and music. The tune is an anthem calling for hope and belief in supporting our beloved nation, Italy; with a great desire to be able to flip this situation around 360. The song was written in English so that it could reach as many people as possible across our nation and those who live outside our peninsula. It has been performed by an almost complete Wheels Of Fire, with Stefano Zeni on guitar, Davide “Dave Rox” Barbieri on vocals, Federico De Biase on keyboard, Fabrizio Uccellini on drums and special guest Stefano “Skool” Scola (Hungryheart, Dream Company) on bass.
“We Will Rise” is a clear example that home recording at a distance can achieve great results with praiseworthy quality; especially when done by professionals of the music sector. The brilliant work of mixing and mastering was done, not by chance, by none other than Roberto Priori.
The official videoclip of the song, produced by Moviedel Productions, will have Italian subtitles throughout. The end of the video is reinforced by the presence of fans and friends, which have filmed themselves for a fantastic finale performance, showing community and support, which are necessary for our country to rise and start new again as soon as possible.

Lars Eric Mattsson – Hot and Able 1983-85
A Blast from the past! 1983-85 Lars Eric Mattsson was rocking out with his first real band, “Joe Cool” performing his songs. The band never managed to get signed but the songs are still alive and now be bring you this 16 track collection of Lars’ work from these years.
The influences of Deep Purple, Rainbow etc are never far away while neoclassical and progressive influences add spice to some of the more straight ahead rock material on this release which arguably is Lars best sounding album to date.
These songs represent Lars’ first serious compositions made for and originally performed by his band at the time, ”Joe Cool” which originally featured a female singer, later a male one when the band started adaping a more straight ahead hard rock style. A few minor updates to the lyrics and music were made during the recording but mostly this is what they were like originally. Original drummer Olle Sjöstrand’s fine ideas have remained as an inspiration throughout the years. Some of the songs on Lars’ debut album ”Eternity” were take from this period though most of that album and the following ”No Surrender” were written very fast in the studio while making those album and it is quite likely that these songs are superior having been road tested and developed over time while Lars was sick of them at the time and preferred not to include them on his debut and the following album. Lars recalls that going back to these songs was a decision made alrealy 6 years ago, but time did not permit this to happen sooner. So here they are, 30 years later!
