Trucker Diablo recently released their third album “Rise Above The Noise” following a successful PledgeMusic campaign. The album marks the return of the band following the decision to withdraw from the music scene temporarily in early 2014. An album launch was held in the Diamond Rock Club, Ahoghill on 7th March and there have been many great reviews for “Rise Above The Noise” as well as my own recommendation - http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/back-stage/music-reviews/1835-ni-rocks-recommends-qrise-above-the-noiseq-by-trucker-diablo.html

I spoke to lead singer and guitarist Tom Harte from Trucker Diablo recently and this interview was included on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 13th March along with four tracks from the new album. That show is available via the On Demand Player - http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/hosts/ni-rocks-friday-rock-show.html - the show uploaded on 11th March.

“Chapter 1” is the debut album from Grindhouse who are an Italian band with a German lead singer in the form of Michael Bormann. The album is released through RMB records on 20th March. This is one of those albums that I checked out, knowing nothing about the band, but which I quickly realised that I liked the sound of once I flicked through the tracks. Several of the Italian band-members have worked together in Iron Maiden tribute bands over the years, so that gives a hint to their musical tastes. The band formed in 2013 when they brought in Michael Bormann to provide vocals.

Knock Out Kaine released their second album “Rise of the Electric Jester” through Rocksector Records on 2nd March. A band’s second album can sometimes be a disappointment but that definitely isn’t the case with this release.  I really liked the debut release from Knock Out Kaine and if anything this one is even better. The first single from the album was “16 Grams of Heart Attack” which was played on the Friday NI Rocks Show recently.

It looks like 2015 is going to be a stellar year for local rock bands. We have new albums coming out from the leading names on the local scene, with The Answer’s new album just released and the second album from The Screaming Eagles due in a few months. In addition, Million Dollar Reload and Stormzone are amongst those who have been busy in the studio. At the heavier end of the scene, Sinocence are leading the pack with the release of “No God, No Masters Vol 2” this month. First out of the door though was the fantastic new release from Trucker Diablo entitled “Rise Above The Noise”. I’ll avoid the obvious opportunities that the album title offers, but let’s just say that Trucker Diablo have set the bar extremely high for those that follow them this year.

WE'RE going to go out on a limb here...the five tracks on Sinocence's latest release are the best set of songs they've ever laid down.

Yes, Sinocence have written some outstanding material in the past, but 'No Gods, No Masters Vol 2' is a peerless

Guitarist George Lynch seems to be one of those artists that is always working on something, so I was grateful to get a bit of his time recently to talk to him about some of his recent releases, future plans and the Mr Scary guitars amongst other things.

It is available to listen to now via the On Demand Player (the show uploaded on 4th March) - http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/hosts/ni-rocks-friday-rock-show.html

The second album from Furyon has been long, long overdue! It finally landed on 23rd February when “Lost Salvation” was released through Dream Records / Cargo Records. And, not surprisingly, it was certainly worth the wait. The first album “Gravitas” was initially released in 2010 and established the band in many people’s eyes. There were a number of re-releases of that debut album, but we finally have a follow-up that is the equal (and perhaps more) of “Gravitas”. “Lost Salvation” has been on fairly heavy rotation on my iPod since I received the album from our friends at Rock n Growl Promotion, who as ever are doing a great job getting the album into the spotlight.
