Roulette – Release a New Melodic Rock Blockbuster Single
After the release of the album ”NOW!” and all great reviews all over the world, Roulette was supposed to go on an European tour and also play a couple of festivals in Scandinavia. But then the pandemic came and everything was postponed. They have been waiting patiently to meet their fans and this year everything is happening. Roulette were headlining Scandirock Melodic in Gothenburg, playing at Sabaton Open Air (with bands like Nestor, Amaranthe and Hammerfall) and got 9/10 in review for their live performance, and went on a successful tour in Spain in September. They will also play in their home town of Sundsvall and then finish off the year at the end of November playing at All Star Fest in Antwerpen, Belgium (sharing stage with legends as Demon, Praying Mantis, FM, Treat and many more).
To celebrate this they are now releasing a new single called ”Ready For Friday Night” accompanied by a new music video.
The new song is a really up-tempo rocker with a killer chorus and lyrics that tells you it’s time to get out and party after 2 years of staying at home.
Singer Tomas says:
Ready For Friday Night is really a ”party song” about the great feeling to go on a party with your friends after a hardweeks work. But it also has a deeper meaning, and that’s the great emotional feeling we all felt when the society opened up after 2 years of the pandemic.
The new single is recorded and produced by Chris Rehn at Booxrom Studios which also did the video for the song containing clips from the recent tour in Spain.
THRESHOLD – NEW ALBUM IN NOVEMBER …DETAILS REVEALED …
The new album from British progsters THRESHOLD is called “Dividing Lines” and is set for release on November 18th via Nuclear Blast.
The band states : “A collection of cautionary tales, Dividing Lines is best described as ‘Legends’ darker, moodier older brother'” ……..
and here’s a bite of it…..
Richard West comments on the song: “”Silenced is about how we seem to be heading towards less voices, less artists, less venues, less platforms where everyone can be heard. People seem so scared to speak out or debate anything anymore. I know I sound old but I miss the good old days! When freedom of speech goes then society is lost.””
Watch this space at 2pm BST / 3pm CST for another surprise we have in store for today!

Saints Trade: new album Cover & details revealed….
Art Of Melody Music & Burning Minds Music Group are glad to announce all the details of “The Golden Cage”, the new official studio album by Italian melodic rockers Saints Trade.
The album features 11 songs composed in the spring of 2020, during the Italian lockdown. The title is a reminder of those months when, due to the pandemic, people were forced indoor in a sort of ‘prison’, despite all the comforts and the safety in everyone’s home.
At the same time, “The Golden Cage” is also a play on words recalling the expression
“The Golden Age”, to highlight once again the gap between these years of big troubles and fears due to Covid-19 and the happier times in the past (also for music). So, with this title, the band wants to imply the hope for a general rebirth after the pandemic, especially for the rock scene.
“The Golden Cage” is scheduled for release on March 25, 2022 via Art Of Melody Music/Burning Minds Music Group. The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori at Pri Studio and sees the participation of Paolo Caridi (Arthemis, Hollow Haze, Sweet Oblivion, Killing Touch) on the drums. CD graphics were designed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, Platens, Alchemy, Firmo). The first single, “Casino Royale”, will be launched with an official video on February 1 (pre-save link here).

TEN – Presents Brand New Lyric Video For The Track “Hurricane”…New album on Feb.18th…
UK hard rock stalwarts TEN used the downtime during the worldwide pandemic to work on not one, but two new albums. The first album to be released, “Here Be Monsters”, will land on February 18, 2022. Their new single and lyric video for the track “Hurricane” is out today. You can watch the lyric video for “Hurricane” HERE:
Listen to our both singles so far – “Fearless” and “Hurricane” and pre-order/save “Here Be Monsters” on CD/LP/Digital HERE: https://orcd.co/herebemonsters
Following the success of the recent string of albums, from “Albion” to “Illuminati”, Hughes is joined once again by guitarists Dann Rosingana, Steve Grocott and John Halliwell along with bass player Steve McKenna, and keyboard maestro Darrel Treece-Birch. Drums on the album have been handled by Markus Kullman (Sinner, Glenn Hughes, Voodoo Circle). TEN continue to raise the musical bar higher for themselves, a goal they push on every release. Stunning guitar work, rich keyboards, excellent bass and drum interplay along with Hughes’ rich vocals are the order of the day here. “Here Be Monsters” was produced by Gary Hughes and mixed and mastered by Dennis Ward. TEN’s longstanding professional association with Dennis has been ongoing since he mixed their 2011 album, “Stormwarning” and has always guaranteed albums with stunning sound and production.
Fans should note that there are no ties between this and the next album, ie. “Here Be Monsters” is not a “Part One” or anything of this nature. The band has simply crafted two high quality releases and decided to put them out separately, in a fashion not too dissimilar to what happened to the amazing first two records which were recorded one after the other in a very short period of time.
British hard rockers TEN have an outstanding history of releases in their storied and revered catalog. Starting out as a sort of solo project built around singer and songwriter Gary Hughes, TEN found their audience playing a hard rock sound influenced by such giants as UFO, Thin Lizzy, Magnum, Giant, and Whitesnake in a time when playing this particular sound was considered ommericial suicide. The band’s early records such as “The Name Of The Rose”, “The Robe”, “Spellbound“, and “Babylon” established the band as mainstays in the melodic hard rock genre, which has continued throughout their now 26 year career over the course of 14 studio albums.
