Best known as the composer and performer of the huge early-'80s dance hit "Maniac" (from the movie Flashdance), songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Michael Sembello has issued several solo albums over the years, in addition to producing, composing, and performing on other artist's recordings. Born in Philadelphia during 1954, Sembello got his start as part of Stevie Wonder's band in the early '70s, later doing session work for the likes of Sergio Mendes, the Jackson 5, Stephen Bishop, Randy Crawford, and David Sanborn, among others. But it was the soundtrack to the aforementioned 1983 movie Flashdance that brought Sembello his greatest acclaim, as the album has since gone on to be certified six times platinum…

Wintersun is the 2004 self-titled debut studio album by heavy metal band Wintersun, then the solo project of Jari Mäenpää. The style presented is somewhat of a departure from the more folk metal-oriented sound of Ensiferum, of which Mäenpää was previously a member. Instead, Wintersun explores power metal, melodic death metal, and symphonic black metal sensibilities. This is surely one of the greatest albums not only in 2004, and definitely deserves a place among the greatest.

Maya With Love reunites the powerful trio that Harold Mabern assembled in 1997 to record his Mabern's Grooveyard album. Like that recording, this current offering makes the most of the talents of all three players to produce music that is a whirling stream of power. The percussive nature of Mabern's playing is highlighted on the boogie-woogie style of "Boogie for Al McShawn," while the young lion Christian McBride steps out from the background with some impressive bowing on "Lament." Tony Reedus provides a rhythmic framework to hang the whole work on with his impressive and intricate percussion work…

Confess is a hard rock/heavy metal band from Stockholm, Sweden with influences of the 80's. In late 2008 the lead singer John Elliot formed the band and soon Samael would join the band as the drummer. The band started to write their own material right away and a couple of shows around Sweden were immediately on the schedule. The band released a demo in 2010 and the responses were really good. Denver joined on guitar and will be writing on future releases. Confess went into the studio in early 2010 to record a couple of new demos. During the recording process Confess got signed by an American based label called Sliptrick Records…

Six years beyond their third album Inner Monster Out, Shadowside took time to evaluate their songwriting stance and gained ex-Hammerfall bassist Magnus Rosén in the interim, aiming for personal distinction. "Shades Of Humanity" explores deep subjects such as depression, abortion, the Mariana Dam disaster in Brazil and mankind's moral values, branching out in musical ways nobody expected while still keeping their heavy guitar riffs and catchy melodies.
