  2. I have no idea how often this happens, but I found this interesting. I think The Rippingtons fans out there might find it interesting as well. The Rippingtons, Moonlighting was also released in Japan as Cruise Control, Moon Riding. Both albums were released on CD and vinyl. Does anyone know of others?
  3. Semblant, Vermilion Eclipse was released on April 15, 2022. "There’s a thin line in metal music when using clean and gruff vocals. This seems to be particularly important in bands who employ female singers with male musicians who add the growls. It doesn’t always work and can overpower and distract from the overall delivery. Thankfully, this isn’t the case for Brazilian outfit SEMBLANT, whose album “Vermilion Eclipse” is their second release for Frontiers Music srl. It’s their fourth album overall for a band who have been together for over 15 years." You can read the rest of the review here... While I'm usually not a goth metal fan, Mizuho Lin has the voice of an angel. Her voice reminds me of Pat Benatar. She also has a youtube channel where she sings a variety of music including Disney movie tracks and a Jon Bon Jovi cover. https://www.youtube.com/c/MizuhoLin
  4. Joe Satriani, The Elephants of Mars was released on April 8, 2022. "The Elephants of Mars is Satriani’s 19th studio effort to date and definitively reinforces why he has remained perhaps the most popular instrumental rock/shred guitarist out there since the 1980s. His music has always been as much about songwriting as it was high-velocity guitar slinging and Satch has continued to refine that internal balance with each new release. He’s so good at it now that he can hold back at will to create moods and emotions that mesmerize listeners before clobbering them with his prodigious chops that are always just below the surface. He sees the big picture of his music better than anyone in his genre and that, friends and neighbors, is why he rules." You can read the rest of the review here...
