: AC/DC - Hard as a Rock


Winamp windows Media Player Real Player QuickTime

Back in November I posted an interview with Joe Lynn Turner that we’d done via e-mail. That interview covered his latest release with Rated X and numerous other projects. (http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/interviews/1725-ni-rocks-interview-with-joe-lynn-turner.html) Since then the former Rainbow and Deep Purple singer has announced a series of solo shows across the UK, including one in Voodoo, Belfast on 4th April, so I took the opportunity to record a new interview with JLT for the Friday NI Rocks Show and get him to select some tracks to play. We chatted for about 25 minutes and JLT talks about the upcoming solo shows, his hopes for Rated X, upcoming plans including appearances on the “Rock Meets Classic” tour and working with Richie Blackmore, the Hughes Turner Project and more.

The interview was recorded on 20th February and was broadcast on Friday 27th February. It is available from the On Demand Player now - http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/hosts/ni-rocks-friday-rock-show.html (the show uploaded on 26th Feb) and for the next 8 weeks.

“Armageddonize” is the fifth album from Swedish band Eclipse and it was released on 20th February 2015 through Frontiers Records. The album maintains the band’s melodic rock core, but there does seem to be a heavier edge to many of the tracks. Singer Erik Martensson and guitarist Magnus Henriksson continue to be the driving force behind the band.

THEY were amongst the first to merge folk and metal, to bring together traditional sounds with the might of metal as far back as the early 90s - they are Waylander.

THE Black Star Riders are to many an enigma. Emerging from the ashes of Thin Lizzy's dying embers, their last album 'All Hell Breaks Loose' there was a definite whiff of compromise between the Lizzy template and Ricky Warwick's powerful influence.

Certainly some hardcore Lizzy devotees (including our contributor Baal)

BACK in the dim and distant past 'eavy metaaal was not a complicated patchwork of genres and sub-genres. It was simply 'eavy fuggin' metal, played loud and proud.

Harkening back to those days are Northern Ireland's Terminus, who are preparing for a European assault.

WHEN it comes to a wealth of diverse music, the Scandinavian countries have the lion's share, and the latest evidence comes for Smash into Pieces as they let rip with radio-friendly rock on their second album 'Apocalypse DJ'.

Skarlett Riot may be a band that will find its biggest following among the younger generation of rock fans, but their new EP “We Are The Brave” has made a fan out of a (young at heart) rocker in his mid 40s! The band formed back in 2010 and already have a successful debut album and impressive list of live appearances under their belt. I must admit though that I didn’t know much about them until this new EP arrived via Factory Music. “We Are The Brave” was released on 16th February.

Bigfoot is a band featuring five guys from the Wigan area of North West England. They’ve recently released a four track EP centred around the single “The Other Side of Paradise”. We’d been sent the EP by the band’s PR team and I played the single on the Friday NI Rocks Show last week. Definitely a release worth investigating!
