The GENESIS reunion is on featuring the 80’s line-up of MIKE RUTHERFORD, PHIL COLLINS & TONY BANKS. Full tour details etc are expected to be announced in early Nov.

Latest in the never ending line of KISS merchandise is a perfume. A mere $39 in the US, Kiss Him & Kiss Her. Sadly no Kiss This…

From GRAHAM BONNET’s website –
We know that there is already a rumour about "Alcatrazz" circulating on the internet. Yes, we have to admit that there is a project to form new Alcatrazz involving Graham, Howie Simon (g), Glenn Sobel (d) and Tim Luce (b). The official name is "Alcatrazz featuring Graham Bonnet", and it is not the reunion of the Alcatrazz perhaps you all know very well. Graham is truly hoping to tour Japan with this new band. When any activity of this project is confirmed, it'll definitely be on this News page. So keep your fingers crossed"!
On a side note, Graham has been invited by Don Airey to join the recording of Don's new solo album and sing some tracks. Also, as for the Elektric Zoo recordings, the vocal tracks are now half way done. Rest assured that it is progressing.

Rock Candy Records will be issuing a remastered edition of the classic 1982 album "Hughes/Thrall", with a release date set for November.
Both GLENN and PAT were heavily involved in the remastering process and have re-recorded two unreleased songs for inclusion as Bonus Tracks, "Still The Night" and "Love Don't Come Easy".
HUGHES/THRALL 2 will be released during 2007. Currently, there will be 9 songs in total - 7 new and 2 others which have seen the light of day before, but as part of some demos recorded back in the day.

Black Messiah

The first Black Messiah album at AFM Records “Of Myths And Legends“ will be released on November, 17th. Black Messiah once again display their musicianship, but on an even higher level. If you don't have a clue what “Pagan Metal” means BLACK MESSIAH would feel honoured to introduce you to it…

On November, 24, 2006 a spectacular release is approaching: the DORO "Warrior Soul Winter Edition (20 Years A Warrior Soul)" offers, in three different configurations, a view over the career of one of the strongest and most interesting artists of all times.

The regular Winter Edition of "Warrior Soul" includes, next to already established hits such as "You `re My Family", "Strangers Yesterday" or "Haunted Heart" an extra bonus CD with live tracks and a brand new, so far unreleased track.

The "20 Years A Warrior Soul" Edition contains, next to that, a high quality double DVD as well. The DVD is produced in the currently best and technically most developed DVD9-format. On the first DVD you get to see a 90 minutes documentation about the anniversary show, including all guests such as, for example, Lemmy/Motörhead, Biff/Saxon, Zak/Circle II Circle or Udo Dirkschneider/U.D.O.. It also contains a revolutionary road movie about the "Warrior Soul" tour. Like a real movie this road movie leads the watcher through different tour stations in Germany, Spain and Russia, as well as through big festival events (Sweden Rock) and allows several private insights in the daily touring life. The second DVD offers the anniversary show from Düsseldorf in full length. Roughly 180 minutes of that show that Doro will, as well as her fans, never ever forget.

For all collectors and true fans there will also be the exclusive, limited to 1000 pieces, spectacular Fan Box with special shirt, sticker, autograph card as well as a Warrior Soul-snow globe. Next to the winter tour of German rock queen Doro this will be the perfect Christmas gift for sure.
