Fronted by the unique Gary Hughes, Britain ’90s leading melodic hard rock / AOR band TEN celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2015. As the first press of their albums was difficult to obtain due to the long-term discontinuation, Japanese label Avalon / Victor Entertainment created this ‘TEN Essential Remaster Series‘, a SHM-CD cardboard sleeve reissue of TEN’s best albums.
And to make the band’s 20th anniversary reissues more special, Hughes provided material from his archives and one unreleased song is added to each album. These unreleased songs are exclusive to this ‘TEN Essential Remaster Series’ not to be found into any other release.
Babylon” marked TEN entering into the new Millennium; it’s an album with futuristic concept in the lyrics but musically faithful to the band’s melodic hard rock / AOR sound. It’s one of their best without a doubt.

VA – Animals Reimagined – A Tribute To Pink Floyd (2021)

Cleopatra Records is doing a lovely campaign this 2021: tribute recordings of Pink Floyd classic albums performed in it’s entirety.
Following the successful ‘Still Wish You Were Here’ tribute project, another gathering of classic, prog and hard rock superstars join to reimagine Pink Floyd’s ambitious 1977 album ”Animals”.
Animals Reimagined – A Tribute To Pink Floyd“, coming November 19, 2021, from Cleopatra Records, features such stars as Yes’ Rick Wakeman, Graham Bonnet, Vinnie Moore (UFO), Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), Pat Mastelotto (Mr Mister, King Crimson), Carmine Appice, Joe Bouchard (Blue Öyster Cult), Nick van Eede (Cutting Crew) and many more.
Fusing the guitar work of David Gilmour with Roger Water’s lyrics, ‘Animals’ is widely hailed as one of the group’s most highly conceptual and uncompromising albums of their career, and certainly set the template for the commercial breakthrough that would come two years later with 1979’s The Wall.
On this tribute, each track has been completely reimagined with modern production flourishes and tasteful musical additions while staying true to the original album’s heady and subtly complex compositions…

THE PINEAPPLE THIEF – Nothing But The Truth (2021)

THE PINEAPPLE THIEF, one of the leading lights of Europe’s melodic prog rock domain, led by post-progressive mastermind Bruce Soord and reinforced by Gavin Harrison (King Crimson) on drums, have announced the multi format release of ”Nothing But The Truth” the next 22 October.
Following the release of their latest studio album Versions Of The Truth in September 2020, the band were preparing to start the album’s live campaign when, like so many other artists, their plans were put on hold by the continuing global pandemic.
Eager to still perform and connect with their fans across the globe, in April 2021, The Pineapple Thief did an on-demand live event entitled Nothing But The Truth. “The Pineapple Thief is equally about the studio and the stage, so it was hugely disappointing that we were unable to tour, especially as we were excited to be able to perform the new album “Versions Of The Truth” live for everyone” said Soord.
So this is it; ”Nothing But The Truth” captures The Pineapple Thief at their very best performing songs from their illustrious catalogue including for the first time live, songs from last CD Versions Of The Truth.
But this isn’t a ‘live album’, take this as ‘live into the studio’, as all performances are so perfect that you think it’s a full, multi-track studio production…

TEN – The Robe +1 [Japan SHM-CD ‘TEN Essential Remaster Series’ including exclusive song] (2016)

Fronted by the unique Gary Hughes, Britain ’90s leading melodic hard rock / AOR band TEN celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2015. As the first press of their albums was difficult to obtain due to the long-term discontinuation, Japanese label Avalon / Victor Entertainment created this ‘TEN Essential Remaster Series’, a cardboard sleeve reissue of TEN’s best albums. And to make the band’s 20th anniversary reissues more special, Hughes provided material from his archives and one unreleased song is added to each album.
These unreleased songs are exclusive to this ‘TEN Essential Remaster Series’ not to be found into any other release. The bonus on this ‘The Robe‘ reissue appeared as B-side and in the band’s live album in some countries, however this is a different mix.
TEN’s third album ”The Robe” always has been celebrated for its mix of their first melodies with a more hard rocking style, an advance of what they would develop in full on the next CD. On the other hand, the albums has been criticized for its muddy production. This remaster has improved the sound quality incredibly.

Disappearances Can Be Deceptive”, the first solo album from impressive singer / songwriter JOHN SLOMAN has been reissued / remastered including a bonus track. This was Sloman’s debut album, perhaps better known as frontman in bands like Lone Star, Uriah Heep and UFO, along with appearances with Praying Mantis, Gary Moore Band, and many more.
On “Disappearances Can Be Deceptive” we can hear all the best elements from a his varied career and brings them together in a fantastic way, giving his vocal talent full range to roam. And being originally recorded / released in 1989, you can expect the polished, melodic rock sound & production from the era.
As 0dayrox extra, we have as well the demos from Badlands, the band Sloman formed in 1982 with John Sykes, Neil Murray and John Munro. Badlands recorded a 4-track demo for EMI Records and performed two gigs, but Sykes had the offer to join Thin Lizzy, and Badlands split. Then Murray & Sloman went on the road with Gary Moore Band.
Badlands had huge potential, and the songs of these demos later ended into ”Disappearances Can Be Deceptive” track list. Additionally, we have three Sloman-penned songs/demos featuring Gary Moore on guitar.

NITE STINGER – Nite Stinger (2021)

To be released in Europe by Steelheart Records (the label of ‘The Lost UK / US Jewels’) here’s the self titled debut CD from Brazilian melodic hard rockers NITE STINGER.
Founded in 2020 by ex-Tales From The Porn bassist and guitarist Bento Mello & Bruno Marx, Nite Stinger brings back that ’80s hard rock vibe and sound inspired by bands such as Mötley Crüe, Skid Row, Poison and Ratt. And they do it with a bang!
With really good songs and first class production, “Nite Stinger” kills. All these are experienced musicians in the genre, including Ivan Busic (from veteran hard rockers Dr. Sin) who also produces, and if you are worried about a little accent in the vocals, let me tell you singer Jack Fahrer’s English language is perfect. Fahrer is part of Sioux 66 as well, a band who has played in Rock In Rio festival alongside the greatest names of classic hard rock.
You’ll be surprised by these guy’s quality on all aspects…

BODYGUERRA – Fire & Soul (2021)

Fire & Soul” is the new album from BODYGUERRA, a modern female-fronted hard rock band with a classic style from the genre but an updated sound production. And when we say their ‘new album’ that’s because BODYGUERRA already has various recordings under their belt, toured all over Europe as support act for the likes of Graham Bonnet, David Reece, etc.
With more than a decade together, BODYGUERRA sounds confident an well oiled, driven by founder Guido Stoecker‘s virtuoso guitar playing and complemented by Christian Antwerpen’s heavy drumming & Daniel “Danji” Perl’s driving bass playing, all providing the foundation for Ela Sturm’s vocals. With its four octave range, her voice sounds equally impressive in the lows as in the highs.
Produced by Rolf Munkes (Tony Martin’s songwriter, Vivaldi Metal Project) who also play guitar, “Fire & Soul” features eleven rocking-bluesy hard rock / melodic metal tracks with that special flavor of female vocals.
Bodyguerra will impress you with…

THE GEORGIA THUNDERBOLTS – Can We Get A Witness (2021)

Considered the new blood of Classic Southern Rock, THE GEORGIA THUNDERBOLTS are releasing their new record “Can We Get A Witness“, a thirteen-song stand out album offering that builds on the influences of the genre’s royalty. Throughout the album, the imprint of Skynyrd, Allman Bros, and Little Feat can be heard, but rather than rest on the laurels of the legends, The Georgia Thunderbolts kick it up a notch.
In many ways, the record represents the start of a new era of Southern Rock built on life-changing songs and the energy of modern living, a strong batch of songs that are more than capable of helping true rock music get back into the mainstream.
The Georgia Thunderbolts are a straight-up great rock band, Southern or not – they add other elements to their music like hard rock. The songwriting snaps, the vocals roar, and the guitars are exactly what they should be. You’ve been waiting for this record to come along. Believe that…

THE LUCID (DAVID ELLEFSON’s post-MEGADETH band) – The Lucid (2021)

THE LUCID, the four-piece metal / hard rock band featuring bassist David Ellefson (ex-MEGADETH), vocalist Vinnie Dombroski (SPONGE), guitarist Drew Fortier (BANG TANGO) and drummer Mike Heller (RAVEN, FEAR FACTORY), are releasing their self-titled debut CD.
This is Ellefson’s first musical appearance since he was scandalously fired from Megadeth in May after an Instagram user, identified only as ‘woahworst,’ started sharing accusations that Ellefson had groomed an underage girl. As proof, they offered extremely explicit video of Ellefson masturbating during a video chat, as well as screen caps of text exchanges between Ellefson and the young woman in question.
THE LUCID’s musical direction is quite eclectic, it isn’t thrash metal like Ellefson’ former band. There’s modern rock, some alternative, a bit of hard rock. However, and while vocally Dombroski couldn’t be further from Dave Mustaine, songs like ‘Damned’ sound a lot like the Countdown To Extinction / Youthanasia-era Megadeth…
