Aldaria - 2017 Land Of Light
Aldaria is a Metal Opera project from Norwegian guitarist Frode Hovd. The sound is comparable to Helloween and Avantasia, but the concept and story is closer to Ayreon based sci-fi.
Battle Beast - 2017 Bringer Of Pain
If you can handle the swing from power metal to lighter material in the space of one single sitting, then 'Bringer Of Pain' should be considered.
Black Diamonds - 2017 Once Upon A Time
New to the AOR Heaven roster is Swiss band Black Diamonds. Soundwise, these guys are more Enuff Znuff than Gotthard, especially when they decide to lay the party-styled anthems on thick.
Coastland Ride - 2017 Distance
in 2017, I think Coastland Ride might have achieved their crowning glory with this latest effort 'Distance'. I'm quite impressed by what I'm hearing here, and I certainly sat up to attention listening to this.
Creye - 2017 Straight To The Top (ep)
If you like Scandi AOR like it used to be, then Creye are the bomb! This really is very good, and if the job of this EP is to be taster of things to come, then bring on the main, dessert and after dinner mints.
Honeymoon Suite - 2017 Hands Up
Good to see Canadians Honeymmon Suite back with a new offering. 'Hands Up' delivers 7 new tracks, plus 2 live tracks, and is their first album since 2008's 'Clifton Hill'.
Jidhed, Jim - 2017 Push On Through
Jim's Jidhed's career in recent times has reverted back to more solo work, and at the urging of PlanetAOR's Johan Nylen, Jim and producer Daniel Flores teamed up for this latest record 'Push On Through', which is quite a bit different to what we've heard before.
Krokus - 2017 Big Rocks
A Covers album? Just a cursory glance at the tracklist reveals all you need to know about this debacle.
Lancer - 2017 Mastery
Lancer are a Swedish band who have clearly announced their arrival on the power metal scene.
Lioncage - 2017 The Second Strike
German trio Lioncage were previously with Escape Music, now their second album 'The Second Strike' will be released by Pride And Joy Music in late March 2017.
Pride Of Lions - 2017 Fearless
These guys have been around long enough for you to know whether you like them. If you're a fan, this certainly won't disappoint.
Raw Silk - 2017 The Borders Of Light [NEW]
This version of Raw Silk is markedly different to the first iteration of the band. Unfortunately the change didn't resonate with me, and I was left wondering where the old Raw Silk was.
Schooltree - 2017 Heterotopia
Thanks to fellow GDM Scribe Eric and his investigative talents, Schooltree would probably have gone unnoticed. 'Heterotopia' is a full-blown 100 minute rock opera.. No throw away 3 minute pop fluff here folks!
Striker (Canada) - 2017 Striker [NEW]
It's still early days in 2017, but I can declare that 'Striker' is one of finest heavy metal albums you'll ever hear this year.
Unruly Child - 2017 Can't Go Home [NEW]
The big thing about 'Can't Go Home' is how understated in delivery this album is. If you can see beyond that, then this should find favour.
