Εξαιτίας των προβλημάτων, που αντιμετωπίζει ο Joe Elliott με τη φωνή του, οι Def Leppard αναγκάσθηκαν να ακυρώσουν τις επόμενες δέκα προγραμματισμένες εμφανίσεις τους, στα πλαίσια της περιοδείας τους με τους Styx και Tesla. Τι συμβαίνει όμως με τον Joe Elliott; Όπως αποκάλυψε με δηλώσεις του ο κιθαρίστας των Leppard, Vivian Campbell, o Elliott αντιμετωπίζει σοβαρό πρόβλημα στις φωνητικές του χορδές, και μάλιστα ζήτησε τη γνώμη δύο γιατρών - ο ένας του είπε ότι δεν υπάρχει κάποιο σπουδαίο πρόβλημα, ωστόσο ο άλλος του είπε ότι αν συνεχίσει να τραγουδά, θα προκαλέσει μη αναστρέψιμη βλάβη στις φωνητικές του χορδές, γι' αυτό και του συνέστησε να επέχει από τις live εμφανίσεις γαι τους επόμενους δύο μήνες. Δεν χρειάζεται να κάνει κάποια επέμβαση, ούτε να ακολουθήσει φαρμακευτική αγωγή, μόνον να ξεκουράσει τη φωνή του. Οι Def Leppard πρόκειται να αναπληρώσουν τις ακυρωθείσες συναυλίες τον ερχόμενο Μάιο.

Σε ένα καινούργιο στάδιο φαίνεται ότι περνά ο Al Jourgensen. Ο mainman των Ministry ανακοίνωσε ότι το νέο του project θα ονομάζεται Surgical Meth Machine και ότι το ντεμπούτο album του project αυτού θα κυκλοφορήσει παγκοσμίως στις 15 Απριλίου 2016. O ομώνυμος δίσκος θα εκδοθεί από την Nuclear Blast και ηχογραφήθηκε στο home studio του Al Jourgensen, o οποίος δούλεψε την παραγωγή μαζί με τον ηχολήπτη Sam D'Ambruoso. Το tracklisting του album είναι το ακόλουθο:

01. I'm Sensitive
02. Tragic Alert
03. I Want More
04. Rich People Problems
05. I Don't Wanna
06. Smash And Grab
07. Unlistenable
08. Gates Of Steel
09. Spudnik
10. Just Go Home
11. Just Keep Going
12. I'm Invisible

 

     Το φως της δημοσιότητας βλέπει το video clip ενός καινούργιου τραγουδιού των Magnum. Πρόκειται για το κομμάτι "Crazy Old Mothers" από το επερχόμενο album των Βρετανών hard rockers, "Sacred Blood "Divine" Lies". Το video-clip γυρίσθηκε από τον Tim Sidwell (Toward Infinity, στο παρελθόν είχε κάνει την παραγωγή στο DVD των Magnum, "Livin' The Dream", ενώ είναι γνωστός και για τη συνεργασία του με τους Marillion). To νέο album των Magnum κυκλοφορεί στις 26 Φεβρουαρίου 2016 από την Steamhammer/SPV. 

 

 

 

Στον παλιό, κλασικό του ήχο των late '60s και των '70s επιστρέφει ο Carlos Santana.

Listen to Santana’s New Single, ‘Anywhere You Want to Go,’ Featuring Journey’s Neal Schon

 

After having teased the public for three years, the first fruits of Santana IV, the album that reunites most of the original Santana band have been released. You can listen to the first single, “Anywhere You Want to Go,” above.

The song bears the hallmarks of a classic Santana song, with a chord progression that evokes “Oye Como Va” and “Evil Ways.” In addition to providing the vocals, Gregg Rolie, who wrote the track, delivers an organ solo and there’s plenty of Carlos Santana‘s distinctive lead guitar, with some help from Neal Schon of Journey, who first gained fame as a member of Santana.

Santana IV, which arrives April 15, marks the first album with Santana, Rolie, Schon, drummer Michael Shrieve and percussionist Michael Carabello since 1971’s Santana III. Carabello left after that record, and Schon and Rolie formed Journey after their 1972 follow-up, Caravanserai. Shrieve’s last effort with Santana was Borboletta in 1974. Benny Rietveld (bass) and Karl Perazzo (percussion) round out the lineup in place of, respectivley, David Brown, who died in 2000, and Jose “Chepito” Areas.

“When you can go back and break new ground with joy and determination – and some whoop-ass energy – it gets you going,” Santana said about the new release. “I think we achieved something very rare. This music was screaming to come out of us. It wasn’t about nostalgia. It was about passion.”

As of now, Santana and Journey have three concerts scheduled: April 13 at New York’s Madison Square Garden, April 15 at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT., and the PPL Center in Allentown, Pa., on April 16.
