For many years, Amy Schugar has been developing her skills as a songwriter, arranger, singer and guitarist. Her talent is undeniable, and her energy, tenacity and never-give-up attitude have benefited many bands and collaborators in the past. Amy has the voice of an angel and plays the guitar like the devil! A chance meeting with, at the time, fellow Phoenix resident Michael Schenker (UFO, Scorpions, MSG) became the catalyst for her long overdue step into the limelight.

"Until All The Ghosts Are Gone" is the long awaited album from Anekdoten, a wait of eight years since the excellent "A Time Of Day" (2007). Fortunately it's been worth the wait as it's as good as and sometimes better than most of their back catalogue. It's clearly recognisably Anekdoten with no great leaps in style. The haunting and melancholic melodies, the dynamic rhythm section and of course the ever present Mellotron. "Until All The Ghosts Are Gone" is a crowning achievement for Anekdoten, one of the absolute standout progressive rock albums of 2015.

Not to be confused with the Michael Schenker Group and their own MSG album, this album and the McAuley Schenker Group in general was a mainstream melodic hard rock & glam-metal effort from legendary guitarist Michael Schenker and singer Robin McAuley. The final album of the duet Robin McAuley and Michael Schenker which was released in 1991. This is an album that was packed with lots of commercial edged melodic rock, powerful ballads, huge harmonic background chants, and thrilling solos, not to forget that Jeff Pilson and James Kottak were also strengthening this magical line-up. This Remastered CD includes one bonus track.

Freaky Styley was produced by George Clinton, of Parliament-Funkadelic.

Worlds Torn Asunder is the third album by the American thrash metal band Warbringer, released on September 27, 2011 via Century Media. A merciless, brutal thrash metal attack that begins strong with its kickstarter "Living Weapon" and ends just as strong with the closer "Demonic Ecstasy", Worlds Torn Asunder is surely an album you cannot miss if you admire the new wave of Thrash, even if in the least sense of the word.

Warbringer are one of the most promising of the new wave of thrash bands, and on their second album, they're clearly hardened by time spent on the road, ready to crush the listener with a fresh set of high-speed riffs and machine-gun drum fills. This band plays in the old-school thrash style of Exodus and Testament, with none of the progressive intricacy that Metallica brought to the form on …And Justice for All.

Warbringer has continued to evolve throughout its 4 albums into the most lethal band in thrash, and delivers a monumental 5th record in Woe to the Vanquished. Taking the more progressive and ambitious leanings of Empires Collapse and tempering them with pure, unrelenting violence. The result is a unique hybrid strain of thrash and extreme metal that ranges from all-out speed assaults such as "Woe to the Vanquished" and "Shellfire" to the biggest song the band has ever done, the 11-minute "When the Guns Fell Silent." Warbringer makes a triumphant step forward on this record, it's an absolute must for anyone into metal today.
