“Devil May Care” is the debut album from Vanderberg and it was released on 18th November via Hear You Music. It’s a fairly low-profile release that probably passed a lot of people by, but I checked it out when it came into Rock Radio NI and liked what I heard. The band shouldn’t be confused with Vandenberg, the band that featured Adrian Vandenberg of Whitesnake fame. This features another guitarist called Marc Vanderberg, and whilst he may not be particularly well known, it is well worth checking out this album. I’ve included the title track “Devil May Care” on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 9th December.

“Master of Light” is the latest album from German rockers Freedom Call and it was released on11th November via Steamhammer / SPV. The band released their first album back in 1999, but I’ve only really been listening to the band for about 4 years. I had an idea of what to expect from “Master of Light” and I wasn’t to be disappointed. I played the track “Metal is For Everyone” on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 11th November and will have another track on the NI Rocks A-Z Show soon.

Voodoo Vegas recently released their latest album called “Freak Show Candy Floss” (http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/back-stage/music-reviews/2919-ni-rocks-recommends-qfreak-show-candy-flossq-by-voodoo-vegas.html ). I’ve been a supporter of the band for a while and posted an interview with them back in June 2013, so I thought it’d be a good time to catch up with them again and have a chat about the new album and what plans the band had for the future. I spoke to singer Lawrence and guitarist Meryl via Skype on 28 November and you can hear what was said on the Friday NI Rocks Show that is broadcast at 9pm on Friday 2 December.

That Show is available now via the On Demand Player - http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/hosts/ni-rocks-friday-rock-show.html (the Show uploaded on 30 Nov).
