Friday New Releases – July 28th

It is the last Friday of the month and it has been a slow month.  And it is another Friday where there isn’t a ton of releases, but there are at least a few I am interested in and those are highlighted in Blue.  If you like Rock, Pop, Metal, Country, Christian, Electronic and even old time rock & roll, there is a little for everyone.

  • 51ZBD6E9HnL._AC_US218_  Alice Cooper – Paranormal – (EarMusic):  The Man, The Myth, The Legend, Alice Cooper is back with his 27th or so album.  How many artists can say that??  I have seen and heard a lot of buzz about this one and I am actually excited to get this one.  I can’t wait to hear what is in store with this one.

  • 617WoFX2ojL._AC_US218_  Seventh Day Slumber – Found – (VSR):  The Christian rock band from Texas is here to bring us more of their post-grunge, hard rock.  I haven’t heard anything of this one yet (haven’t watched the video either) so waiting to be surprised when the full album is out.  I am generally not disappointed by anything they have released over the last 12 years.

Jorn Lande – Artist Profile

Time for an update as he has released a new album, ‘Life on Death Road’, since I wrote this around a year ago…

My artist profile this time is on Norwegian rock vocalists, Jorn Lande.  He has a new album coming out on Friday and so I thought I would highlight his career.

His popularity here in the states is pretty much non-existent as I have never heard his songs on the radio.  I find this to be a travesty.  Radio here in the states is so bad now and pollutes our ears with such garbage that we miss out on so many great bands and artists from around the world.

Jorn live at Brewhouse - GöteborgJorn’s voice is so powerful and he could hold is own with some of the more well known vocalist out there.  When he sings, he does sound almost exactly like David Coverdale of Whitesnake.  And when he covers any Whitesnake song, the resemblance is uncanny.

My only negative on Jorn is his music videos.  I swear he looks like he is so angry with the camera and he looks like he is just screaming at it.  If you can get past that, the songs are awesome.

Jorn has been in so many bands, he is sort of a vocal nomad. The bands he has been in are Vagabond, The Snakes, Ark, Millenium. Beyond Twilight, Masterplan and Allen/Lande. My familiarity with him comes from 2 of his bands and his solo work.  So my focus will be strictly with those albums and songs.
