A tribute to Dubai's guitarist: Aldo

Published in ROCKERIANS!

 

On July 21st, Dubai favorite rock music venue, the Music Room, will witness a first of its kind event with makers and shakers of the Dubai rock joining forces to pay tribute to the county’s guitar legend, Aldo Rock.

It’s been a while since I listened to a newly-formed band that caught my attention from the first track. Winter Calling is a – relatively- new band from Florida, USA, playing Hard Rock/Melodic Metal. Their album Faces was released last year with three video albums, which I’ll talk about later, but let me first dig into the tracks!

Some would recognize the American multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Freddie Nelson by his collaboration with the guitar virtuoso Paul Gilbert in album United States in 2008 and again for his solo release I Can Destroy in 2015. Currently, Nelson is releasing his debut album Shake the Cage. Let’s discover more about such astonishing album.

The Egyptian Doom Metal scene have not been very active recently. Only Sinprophecy and Midwinter currently represent Doom Metal music in Egypt. Last March however, a new Doom Metal band Catharsis were born, to pour more blood in our local DM veins. The band’s members are:

The extremely talented front man of the Dubai based alternative rock/metal band Jay Wud have given us a rare and awesome opportunity to review his band’s upcoming album Transitions which drops on June 30th.

A distinctive tune and a genre wavering album is introduced by the polish band Manescape.

 

Manescape is a neo-psychedelic rock trio formed in 2006 in Głogów, Poland. They published a demo by the name of D-Tape back in 2007 then released an EPcalled In Progress in 2008 and finally released their full-length album Antibodies in February 2017.

 

Almost a year after their formation, the metal band Last Nail in the Coffin are trying to find their way through the crowded hallway to fame. Even though their lead vocalist Sean Skellingtong always says that the band only wants to make good records in spite of what people think, but as we all know, one of the greatest constraints in the music industry is having a pleasant opinion from the crowd, and not just any crowd: Metalheads!

From a small city in the Swedish woods, the Melodic Metal Band Exogenous emerged. What started as a hobby project slowly formed into a serious band with the highest goals. Demos were recorded in 2013 and 2014, and a few shows were played from 2015 and onwards. After a time of definition and progression, Exogenous is finally releasing their first official record, Identity EP.

Looks like it's that time of the year again, the time punk rock giants decide to reappear again, and - as usual - they don’t make their comeback individually, they make it together, all of them at once, and for a punk rock fanatic (like yours truly) it's just too much to take in.

The Fatal Pursuit is a four-piece band from Canada. They were formed two years ago playing hard rock/metal mainly influenced by bands like Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Protest the Hero, Sum 41, and Three Days Grace. Recently, they released their debut album "Sinful" on March this year, which why I am gonna talk about in this review.

The spirit of RNR was perfectly presented by Adham Roshdy’s 'High on You'! Roshdy has been recognized recently for his classic , funk, and hard rock songs for the past five years.

Last Friday, the Alexandrian Metalheads had one of the rare chances to witness an unforgettable Metal night by the Egyptian rising Progressive/Melodic Death band Infernum Expectat and the legendary International Symphonic/Oriental Black/Death Metal Band Odious. Rock Era Team was there to give you a fulfilled review of the Metal night. Hot Live Fumes was the first Metal concert to be held in Alexandria since 2015, after Hate Field's Acoustic for a Night.

A nice meal of industrial/punkish rock n’ roll that I enjoyed in the morning by the Las Vegas - based band, Psyatics. Famous Monsters is a 14-track album that has songs that are a mixture between speed and slow. How? Let’s find out.

I was curious to listen to Sterlie Jets since I read the album title. No Gods No Loss is the band’s upcoming album which will be released on May 4th on Yesca Rock. They also released ‘Fireside Drive’ on March 8th as the first single and music video. I see Sterlie Jets is a very unexpected music band while you’re listening to, I’ll tell you in right now.
