VOODOO CIRCLE release their new album ‘Raised On Rock’ on February 9th on AFM Records.

Single ‘Running Away From Love’ is out now and you can check out the audio video here:

If you consider the songs on Voodoo Circle’s new album Raised On Rock to be an indicator of the current emotional condition their most important protagonists find themselves in, there seems to be no reason to worry about band founder, guitarist and main composer Alex Beyrodt in particular. Thanks to Beyrodt’s excellent songwriting – as usual inspired by renowned sources such as Whitesnake, Rainbow, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix – and his outstanding guitar performance which brings to mind icons from Ritchie Blackmore through Jimmy Page to John Sykes, this recording oozes pure, unadulterated fervour. This exuberant energy, however, isn’t the merit of Beyrodt alone but, without doubt, also that of his colleagues Mat Sinner (bass), Francesco Jovino (drums) and – last but not least – new vocalist Herbie Langhans (Avantasia). Beyrodt and Langhans met in 2015 at the Wacken Open Air, when they belted out the Wacken anthem together from the gigantic Black Stage. Beyrodt: “The amazing thing about this story is that Herbie and I had never met before but talked to each other in person for the very first time after we’d rocked only minutes earlier the 100,000 people in front of the stage and around four million viewers in front of their TV sets.”

With Langhans as the group’s new frontman, the stylistic direction of the Voodoo Circle compositions hasn’t significantly changed – unlike the general flair of the material: “I feel that the band sounds even more autonomous, a little less bluesy and much meatier with Herbie at the mic,” Beyrodt enthuses. “This allowed me to work on ideas which would probably not really have suited his predecessor David Readman but are absolutely perfect for Herbie’s powerful voice.” The Voodoo Circle boss is referring to numbers such as ´Running Away From Love` with its anthemnic vocal melody and the subsequent midtempo rock track ´Higher Love`, which went down a treat with the audience at its official live debut.

Raised On Rock was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, U.D.O.), whose unerring instinct for dynamics and frequencies lends the recording its modern touch. And another musician contributed significantly to the tight overall impression of Raised On Rock: the keyboards were manned by Corvin Bahn (Saxon, Uli Jon Roth). So all in all, we can say that the new Voodoo Circle album truly lives up to its programmatic title.

Despite overwhelming odds, Raven managed to devote his life to his two passions, Music and Martial Arts. Raven’s well-known reputation for a wild stage presence and thought-provoking lyrics earned him the title of the 90’s Iggy Pop by Flash Magazine. Raven currently a 6th Degree Black Belt; in 1999 Raven began to do active work with the Guardian Angels.

His latest release, Oblivious, is a collaboration with noted guitarist and producer Tommy Harrison, where he showcased his southern rock/ biker rock with a twist of philosophy, with traits that feature his reputation as a powerful vocalist and an insightful songwriter. Offstage, Raven keeps people intrigued with his ongoing artistic endeavors, including co-founding the martial art KaJuKiBo, becoming an Ordained Buddhist Priest.

American Glutton’s debut EP ‘Dish Served Cold’ is out now

American Glutton release their stomping new EP ‘Dish Served Cold’ on 1st December.

You can download the full EP from the dropbox link below:

Blending hard rock and a touch of metal, this is a huge, chunky, riff soaked EP that is as catchy as hell & guaranteed to get even the most cynical up & rocking!

American Glutton is a hard rock/ heavy metal band based out of Jacksonville, Florida, that features three powerhouse veteran performers: Raven Cain, a solo artist in his own right as the group’s vocalist, alongside Tommy Harrison, widely known as the guitarist for Denver rock legends Dogs of Pleasure, and Dani Harrison, who established himself in the Denver scene as part of The Trainwreckers. After joining forces in 2016, American Glutton moved into the studio, releasing their debut Dish Served Cold on From the Ashes Records in 2017.

Initially, the group began to find followers from students at Jacksonville University and the University of Central Florida, as Tommy is a university professor who is still shredding through his lifelong love of metal. This unusual meeting of academia and heavy metal began to spread, and the band’s reputation began to grow. Cain’s fan base, whose own fans knew of him primarily through his performances of southern rock, were surprised at Cain’s versatility in a genre the fans were unaware of. For Cain whoever, who grew up on heavy metal, it wasn’t surprised at all. Fans of country rock band the Trainwreckers were equally astounded at Dani’s prowess playing music that was stylically different than what his fans were used to. Yet, the trio’s debut recording laid any doubts to rest with its powerful, groove based approach to metal inspired by Black Sabbath and groups from the 1980s. A powerful live act, joined by drummer Kirk Ferguson, the group has expanded its sights on the heavy metal scene United Kingdom and Europe.
