AOR HEAVEN ::: N E W S L E T T E R :: 25/11/2022

 

Howdy melodic rockers,

It has been unusually quiet in the AOR Heaven office over the past few days as some deliveries have been delayed. This gave me more time than usual to think about some things. After my mother had to go to the hospital again and her condition is not really positive you can imagine that this does not really brighten my mood. In addition, I wrote the parting words for the last AOR Heaven magazine, which will appear in December, and of course these are all things that make you a bit sad and thoughtful.

Anyway, this Friday we do expect lot of things to come in stock incl. Misery and The Kill from Eonian Records plus Fist “Fleet Street” and Skin from Bad Reputation, the new Rob Moratti and Big Shot and LaMarca to come back in stock.

I have updated the rarities / single titles list containing stuff from my own collection – see below !

 

Wishing you a great week

Georg & Monika

 

 
 

EXPECTED NEW RELEASES !!

FIST - Fleet Street (digitally remastered)

B: 13 € B: 15,5 €

Fist were a mid-level Canadian band through the low ‘80s (1979 – 1985), producing five quality records vastly different from each other over that period, of which 1981’s „Fleet Street“ is considered by many metal heads as a classic. The album showcased singer Ron Chenier's talent for writing slick, guitar riffs, while "Thunder In Rock" was easily the year's best tune on the radio waves and gained them world wide reputation. Just a pity that they couldn’t use their name outside of Canada – it got released with a different cover under the title MYOFIST “Thunder In Rock”. Their unique sound of pairing heavy guitars with massive keyboards was their winning formula. First time ever ON CD through Bad Reputation records.

SKIN - Skin (3 CD box set, digi pack, digitally remastered)

B: 16,5 € B: 20,5 €

Formed in 1992 by ex-Kooga vocalist Neville MacDonald and former UFO/Jagged Edge guitarist Myke Gray, and completed by bassist Andy Robbins (Tokyo Blade) and ex-Bruce Dickinson drummer Dicki Fliszar, the quartet enjoyed considerable popularity until a post-grunge implosion. Backed by a  major label record deal from Parlophone, which allowed them to use ace producer Keith Olsen (Scorps, Whitesnake), the band a strong impact with their 1994 released debut, which not only secured an UK top 20 hit with the song “Money”, they also managed to make the UK top 10 album charts. Digitally remastered re-issue from Bad Reputation records incl. 14 studio bonus tracks on disc 2 and 18 live tracks on disc 3. Value for money !

ROB MORATTI - Epical

B: 14,5 € B: 17,5 €

Former SAGA and FINAL FRONTIER  frontman Rob Moratti with his fifth solo effort. MORATTI, as usual, offers extremely melodic songs. Outstanding players like e.g. Tony Franklin (b, BLUE MURDER) or Joel Hoekstra (g, WHITESNAKE) as well as lots of songs penned by AOR experts Ulrick Lönnqvest (CODE RED) oder Fredrik Bergh (STREET TALK) and the fascinating voice itself make “Epical“ an absolute recommendation for lovers of the melodic genre. Check out “Valerie“ and “For The Rest Of My Life“. Great album!

TORA TORA - Surprise Attack +4 (digitally remastered)

B: 13 € B: 15,5 €

Hailing from Memphis, Tora Tora won a rock contest put on by a local record store and they took the money and made a demo. The demo lead to a record deal with A & M records and their debut album „Surprise Attack“ was released in 1989. This is a splendid album that shows what rock is all about unfortunately it also shows us how important timing is. This came out in 1989. Kiss, Poison, Cinderella, Skid Row, and a few others were still putting out pretty good stuff, but this album was like a breath of fresh air. These guys, along with Tesla and Badlands, were way overlooked. Digitally remastered re-issue from Bad Reputation records incl. 4 bonus tracks.

NEW RELEASES IN STOCK !!
 

THE ROADS - Simple Man

B: 13 € B: 15,5 €

Another mighty project with illustrious musicians like Mick Devine (v, SEVEN), Gary Pihl (g, BOSTON, SAMMY HAGAR) or Laurence Gowan (keys, STYX), Paul Taylor (keys, WINGER) as well as Josh Devine (d, LEVARA, ONE DIRECTION). Classic and very much Seventies infused melodic rock with strong hook lines and timeless arrangements. Pretty authentically produced by the way. THE ROADS should be on the radar! The title track alone is stunning - like the rest!

LEE AARON - Elevate (digi pack)

B: 15,5 € B: 18,5 €

The Canadian metal queen is pretty productive in recent years and her new album is really good, too. She still sings magnificently. And so she does on “Elevate“. A goosebump moment is the ballad “Red Dress“. A mature record which has not much to do with the early days of the “Metal Queen“ but which is way above average, though, and definitely one of the better ones in her career. Partly deep lyrics drawing from six decades life experience by now. This lady knows how to do it!

MISERY - Misery Loves Company (digitally remastered)

B: 13,5 € B: 16 €

It all started in mid-1989 when singer & guitarist Greg Gilley was trying to get his project off the ground and reached out to guitarist Joe Villarreal who was fresh out of playing in the Houston band, The Jaxx. Joe brought in drummer Kevin Coffey from the band Project X, and the nucleus of MISERY was formed. The band recorded their first independent cassette only release in 1991, “Misery Loves Company,” with no outside producers or engineers. The album featured ten tracks, offering a nice slab of classic US hair metal influenced by Dokken, Ratt and early Van Halen. First time ever on CD through Eonian Records, digitally remastered.

Listen:https://youtu.be/lTnL9DbgQ1I

THE KILL - Wake The Dead +8 (digitally remastered)

B: 13,5 € B: 16 €

The roots of this Florida based outfit goes back to the year 1993 when guitarist Kip Elder posted an ad in an Orlanda based rock magazine. After the line-up has been completed the band met a guy called John Kurzweg, who had his own studio in his house. John produced the album „Wake The Dead“ and short after he become a multi-platinum record producer for the band Creed. „Wake The Dead“ got only released as a limited pressing of 1,000 copies and became a huge collectors item. With a sound in the slightly heavier 90s hair metal style aka Skid Row, Badlands and Sweet F.A. this digitally remastered re-issue through Eonian Records has been digitally remastered and also offers 8 bonus tracks.

SPECIAL OFFER!
 

PRETTY MAIDS - Sin Decade (JAP CD, digitally remastered)

B: 11 € B: 13,5 €

The fourth full studio release from the mighty Danish hard rockers, which saw Flemming Rasmussen (Metallica) in charge of the production (as the band wanted a much rawer sound compared to the previous "Jump The Gun" album). After the relative commercial failure of the band's previous album, "Jump the Gun" (1990), bass player Allan Delong, keyboard player Alan Owen and drummer Phil More left the group by late 1990, leaving only singer Ronnie Atkins and guitarist Ken Hammer. Just the title track really stands out and it seems that Atkins/Hammer really struggled like so many other bands during this time. First time ever digitally remastered with the awesome Blu-spec proceedings (compatible with every standard CD player).
