The Past

1988. The debut single from a previously unknown Hard Rock band dominates the singles charts for many weeks. The track is called “Here I Am” and well-known from a Renault-5 TV commercial. Many TV show performances and intense touring all over Europe followed for the band DOMINOE.  

 

The Present

2018. DOMINOE now since 30 years have been producing new albums every now and then – whenever they had fun to enter the studio again. The forces behind are mastermind Robert Papst on guitars and singer Jörg Sieber. “The Lost Radio Show“ now will be released in November and is the 6th album by this group. The content: the long lost studio live session recordings for a radio show from 2008.  

 

The „Tapes“

Originally recorded for a British radio show in 2008, parts of these recordings got lost at the time because of a hard disk crash. The planned radio show never happened and the  incomplete „tapes“ ended up in the archives. By surprise, Robert Papst discovered these “tapes” again in the year 2018. Most of the tracks were used and only the really lost tracks now have been newly recorded. The result: The Lost Radio Show

 

The Music

Guitars. Keyboards. Bass. Drums. A lot of great voices. And the classic instruments of the Mainstream Rock genre. Former band members and longtime musical friends helped to complete the recordings. The new release covers the atmosphere from the original sessions and offers a state of the art production, too. The 15 tracks cover songs from all five Dominoe albums and will take you onto a journey back to the year 2008. Grammy winner Gavin Lurssen, L.A. handled the mastering.

territory: world

formats: CD & digital

Orion's Reign are back with their second full-length studio album, "Scores of War", set for an October 19th release by Pride & Joy Music.

The album, engineered, mixed and mastered at Fascination Street Studios (Powerwolf, Arch Enemy, Dragonforce, Amorphis etc.), in Sweden by Jens Bergen, Linus Corneliusson and Orion's Reign, includes 11 tracks of epic/symphonic metal.

The band continues the music path it had already begun with the previous album "Nuclear Winter", offering this time a full symphonic experience profoundly influenced by epic movie scores, with a complete orchestra, bombastic rhythms, massive choirs and guest appearances such as Tim Ripper Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth), Bob Katsionis (Firewind), Mark Boals (Malmsteen) and others.

The record is extremely diversified and contains much to explore, from Symphonic Speed Metal to catchy (Hard) Rock sounds, as well as operatic refrains filigreeing rich emotionality. The single "The Undefeated Gaul" is the first appetizer of the album, with fast riffs, heavy rhythm section and furious guitar solos! Stay tuned for more single releases!

product: Lioncage - Turn Back Time

release date: 21.09.2018

territory: world

formats: CD & digital

The lions are very proud and grateful to have made it this far. The new album reflects exactly what the band loves and what Lioncage stands for, also in 2018: a diverse album with great tunes, many hooks, cool grooves and powerful guitars.

If you think that this album celebrates rock music more than anything else presented by Lioncage so far – you are right. The lions roar louder and the guitar sounds are thicker.

Since 2017 the band has performed live on stage in great gigs together with FM, Dan Reed Network, Tyketto, Three Wishes and others. This has had a sustainable influence on sound and song-writing, it has added new sides to the music and has given it more power without losing any melodiousness.

Once more the band was pleased to welcome outstanding guests to their cage who supported them passionately and professionally, to name only a few among many others: Neil Murray (b), a.o. Whitesnake, Black Sabbath), Olaf Senkbeil (v, Dreamtide) and Joe Castellini (g)

For the first time some friends of the lions contributed to the song-writing. “Comfort Me” was written together with Joe Castellini and “Turn Back Time” with Olaf Senkbeil.

Lioncage initially started as a trio but has meanwhile grown into a permanent group of five lions, every now and then enhanced by a guest.
