Compiled by David Waterfield


The Rolling Stones – Ride ‘Em On Down 

A cool video featuring Kristen Stewart taken from the Stones latest album ‘Blue & Lonesome’.

Coheed and Cambria – Colors

A mellow moment in a new video from the New York band’s album ‘The Color Before The Sun’.

Queensryche – Hellfire

A new video from Queensryche’s latest album ‘Condition Human’. It is primarily based on the tragic events of Malaysian airline flight MH17 but the visual narrative also incorporates social unrest, media propaganda and social inequalities.

Ginger Wildheart & Ryan Hamilton – Fuck You Brain

If you suffer from mental health issues – or care for someone who does – then Christmas can be an especially difficult and vulnerable time. Respect then to Ginger Wildheart & Ryan Hamilton for this single which is available via their Bandcamp site with all proceeds going to The Samaritans. Kudos for the ABBA tee shirt too!

Deep Purple – Time For Bedlam (lyric video)

Legendary classic rock band Deep Purple return with a new album ‘inFinite’ on 7th April 2017. A limited edition EP ‘Time For Bedlam’ featuring non-album songs and unreleased tracks will be released on 3rd February.

Lionville – I Will Wait 

A blast of quality AOR coming at ya with this track from Lionville’s forthcoming album ‘A World Of Fools’ which is scheduled for release on 24th February 2017.

Battle Beast – King For A Day 

A surprising melodic pop/metal track taken from Battle Beast’s forthcoming album ‘Bringer Of Pain’ which is released on 17th February 2017.

Bon Jovi – Roller Coaster 

Bon Jovi unveiled another video this week from their recent album ‘This House Is Not For Sale’.

Lacuna Coil – Naughty Christmas (lyric video)

OK, this was welcome but unexpected: a Christmas song from Lacuna Coil! Krampus is coming to town…


Greg Lake – I Believe In Father Christmas 

2016 – the git of a year that keeps on taking – took another of our heroes with the passing of Greg Lake from cancer on 7th December. As it’s Christmas Day this Sunday it seems appropriate to include this 1975 track in tribute to him. A classic song with a poignant, eloquent lyric from Pete Sinfield that still rings true today, over 40 years later.
