After a five year absence, progressive rock band The Flower Kings return with 'The Banks Of Eden.' Led by mastermind Roine Stolt (Transatlantic), the material is classic Flower Kings, with all the dreamy, melodic and cinematic elements that fans around the globe have come to love over the years. However, the band’s 2012 incarnation mixes it up with both psychedelic and darker passages that place this album somewhere in between late '60s proto-prog and the new generation of modern art rock.
"Killing Peace" is the fourth studio album by English thrash metal band Onslaught, released in 2007. It is their first album since their reunion in 2005 and their fourth album, after "In Search of Sanity", released 18 years earlier. Onslaught have come back from trials and tests and released one of the finest albums of the year. Superb vocal work from Sy Keeler and equally brutal riffs from Nige Rockett and Alan Jordan throughout the entire album.
On November 9th, the new live documents of German’s Metal icon#1, Udo Dirkschneider, and his band will be released. “Live In Sofia” also marks the end of an era somehow, as the stable U.D.O. lineup that performed together for many years will be shown for a last time. As it became public that guitarist Stefan Kaufmann will be no longer available for the band due to health reasons, “Live In Sofia” will be the last U.D.O. DVD with Stefan.
2012 two CD release, an edited version of the concert originally available in the Super Deluxe Live At Hull box set. Live At Hull is a warts-and-all document - that strange popping sound noticeable at times is the sound of Keith Moon's frenzied drumstick attack making contact with the overhead mic. But after four decades of being neglected it's a document to savor, capturing The Who at their performing pinnacle and is presented here in edited form.
