-Kiko Loureiro To Support New DVD, THE WHITE BALANCE, With January US Tour

Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro has been wowing rock fans with his fleet fingered fretwork, and his talents are showcased front and center on the recently-released DVD, THE WHITE BALANCE. Featuring special guest performers, including Virgil Donati (Planet X, Allan Holdsworth) on drums, the DVD was filmed on June 14, 2013 at the Auditorio Ibirapuera, in São Paulo, Brazil, and incorporates all three phases of Kiko’s preferred styles — metal, progressive, and Brazilian fusion music.

“Last year I got to live my dream, playing at the most awarded performance hall in Brazil,” explains Kiko, “with extraordinary friends and musicians, and got to relive many different parts of my musical history. Everyone who watches this DVD will be able to hear a lot of music I love, but don’t really get to play that much! The upcoming shows will definitely have that flavor, the mixed styles, the heavy guitars, all that put together on a truly unique set!”

And US fans will get a chance to see what all the accolades are about (including Guitar Player Magazine stating “This guy is supremely talented with not just impeccable technique and timing but also great composing and arranging chops”) when Kiko launches a month’s worth of live dates, from January 5-25. Most of the dates will see Kiko sharing the stage with Saving Abel, while the last show is a tribute to legendary Ozzy Osbourne/Quiet Riot guitarist Randy Rhoads.

At the Randy Rhoads performance (called “Randy Rhoads Remembered” and taking place at the Observatory in Santa Ana, CA), Kiko will be sharing the stage with such renowned guitarists as Doug Aldrich, Nuno Bettencourt, Uli Jon Roth, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, and Brad Gillis, among others.

January is shaping up to be an extremely busy month for Kiko Loureiro. What better way to get prepared than to feast your eyes and ears on his new rocking DVD, THE WHITE BALANCE!

-3 Years Hollow To Issue First Full-Length Album For Imagen Records, THE CRACKS; Tour With Saving Abel Announced

Merging intensity with melody, 3 Years Hollow plans to spread their rabid Quad Cities fan base throughout the rest of the US and beyond, with an upcoming tour (alongside Saving Abel — with additional dates to be added), and their upcoming release, THE CRACKS, which drops on February 11, 2014. The 12-track release will be the group’s full-length debut for Imagen Records, and was produced by none other than Sevendust guitarist/songwriter Clint Lowery (Lowery also guests on a track, “For Life”).

“We want to play melodic hard rock,” explains singer Jose Urquiza. “That’s the music that brought us together. At the same time, we all have drastically different influences from progressive rock to hair metal to pop punk.”

Comprised of Urquiza, Tony Reeves (guitar), Neil Kuhlman (guitar), Dex Digga (bass), and Chris Cushman (drums), 3 Years Hollow has already enjoyed success on such stations as Sirius XM Octane, which added the song, “Remember” (of which a re-mastered version resides on THE CRACKS) to their rotation. Soon after, the song hit #1 on the channel, while all of the group’s videos have attracted nearly 500,000 YouTube views.

Also included is the aforementioned “For Life,” of which Urquiza describes as “It’s about a person who is struggling and has fallen away from the world alone. You can see the damage and the demons the person deals with on a daily basis. However, all of a sudden, there is hope instead of despair. The final message is to pull away from the demons, stand strong against them, and keep them out for the rest of your life. It was such an honor to bring that track to life with Clint.”

Instead of setting up shop at a single recording studio, it turns out that the sessions for THE CRACKS occurred at several different studios, including Groovemaster Studios (where Disturbed, Sevendust, and Pop Evil have all recorded) in Chicago, IL, Trailer Studios in St. Louis, MO, and the band’s own studio, Real Trax Recording, in Davenport, IA. According to Urquiza, it is also the realness of his lyrics that resonate greatly with fans. “Everything I write about is a completely personal experience or something I’ve witnessed or experienced myself. I talk about things I’ve seen or experienced. I want to give everybody something real.”

-Swedish Viking Metallers King Of Asgard Start Recordings On Their Third Album!

King Of Asgard return to Sonic Train Studios early in 2014. The band outlived and conquered the winter of three with FI’MBULVINTR, paid tribute to their ancestors and their proud past with the grandiose …TO NORTH.

Now, for the third time around, King Of Asgard return to Andy LaRocque’s Sonic Train Studios to carve the runes of the forthcoming, yet untitled album. In this very moment the last touches are being done on the songs and focus is set to surpass the two former releases which is substantially already met.

King Of Asgard’s third album is as much a step forward as it is a new chapter for the band.

Comments singer/guitarist Karl Beckman: “The epic/melodic song writing of the first two albums is enhanced with monophonic warlike hymns and fierce riffage that hint on the various band members’ past projects. Somewhat darker in its approach, creating atmospheres not alien to King Of Asgard, but still something not heard on the previous two albums. All the King Of Asgard-significative elements are represented yet carrying a somewhat new execution.”

The band will enter Sonic Train Studios in March 2014!

-Darkyra Black’s DRAGON TEARS Cover Artwork Unveiled

Australian symphonic metal singer Darkyra Black will release her debut album, DRAGON TEARS, on February 20, 2014. The DRAGON TEARS cover artwork can be seen at the link below.

http://www.rockngrowl.com/darkyra-black-dragon-tears-cover-unveiled/

DRAGON TEARS is a concept album based on a Gothic interpretation of a geisha like tale that ends in tragedy. Love, loss, lust, betrayal, and revenge. The music is a fine blend of symphonic metal, gothic metal, epic metal, and progressive rock with elements of traditional pentatonic music and an overall cinematic feel. The album is being co-produced by Garry King, Darkyra Black, and George Boussounis, through Online Recording Masters Athens and La Foret Groupe France.

Darkyra Black has recently released their brand new single and video “Tears By Candlelight:”

Darkyra Black are:

Darkyra Black – Vocals
Garry King – Drums
Betovani Deneli – Guitar
Colin Haynes – Bass
Paul Jupe – Guitar
Fab Jablonski – Keyboards

Additional musicians:

George Boussounis – Keyboard/Samples/Arrangments
Michael Porfyris – Cello
Ilias Sdoukos – Viola
Laertis Kokolanis – Violin

When we think Female Fronted Symphonic Metal and Gothic Metal, our minds automatically think of the Ethereal Diva’s such as Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish), Floor Jansen (Nightwish), and Simone Simons (Epica), and each year the number of carbon copy artists increases. Perhaps it’s time for a change. Perhaps the change is right here.

Darkyra Black’s unique vocal is far from predictable as she has a way of blending together all the different colors of her voice taking you on an emotional roller coaster unlike any other female artist.

“Mystery lady Darkyra Black, a new voice within the realm of female fronted metal. Her music is Dark, Passionate and Edgy.”
