Welcome to March and the new releases are heating up. We have a ton this week so there has to be something you like in there, I am sure. If not, I guarantee nothing!! There is rock, metal, pop, country, rap, classic rock…what else could you need? Seriously, what else?? Let me know what I missed and what floats your boat. For me, the two are highlighted in Blue. Have a great weekend!!
- Harem Scarem – Change the World – (Frontiers Records): Yes, Harem Scarem are still going strong with a new release. This is their 16th studio album…wow!! If you know the band, you know what you are getting. Solid, melodic rock and only the way they know how. That is all you want from these guys. Give it a try.

- Allen / Olzon – Worlds Apart – (Frontiers Records): You get Symphony X’s and Adrenaline Mob’s Russel Allen and Nightwish’s Anette Olzon teaming up for an album. Does it get much better than that? Probably, but for now, I will give it a try as it is two great voices of metal together. Deserves a listen.
It is the last Friday of the month and even the last day of the month. There are over 20 albums on the list today including from some old times like Neil Diamond and Bob Dylan up to newcomers like La’Porsha Renae and Jackie Evancho (ok, she isn’t that new, but she is young). There are also quite a couple 90’s artists back such as Jamiroquai and Ice T’s Body Count. Only a few I am really interested in hearing right away and they are highlighted in Blue. I hope there is something on this list that will brighten your day. Friday new releases are just a great way to end a busy week.
- Brother Firetribe – Sunbound – (Spinefarm): Yes, I know this album came out last week, but I had excluded it from the list for some strange reason. I wanted to highlight the release so I added it to this week’s new releases…Brother Firetribe comes to us from the great country of Finland. They are a hard rock and AOR band and is a 5 piece band. ‘Sunbound’ is their fourth release and after three previously stellar releases, I am looking forward to more magic from this band.
- Mastodon – Emperor of Sand – (Reprise Records): Mastodon is heavy metal band from Atlanta, Georgia where I lived for 45 years prior to moving to Charlotte. These guys are heavy metal and deliver the heavy to the extremes. They are unlike most bands I listen to and it is nice to change it up a little. I have followed their career for awhile and can’t wait to give a listen.
