SAINTS TRADE: “ROBBED IN PARADISE” TO BE RELEASED ON FEBRUARY 10TH
“Robbed In Paradise”, the debut album by hard rockers Saints Trade, will be released on February 10th, 2015 and distributed by Andromeda Dischi. The track list is:
01. To The Light
02 Feel The Fire
05. Like A Woman
07. Dreams Running Wild
08. Siria (Dawn Breaks In)
09. Rock 'n' Roll Man
10. Into Your Eyes
“Robbed In Paradise” contains 11 tracks of pure hard rock recalling the glorious 80's, enhanced by the band's members' different influences but with a strong, unique musical goal. The title “Robbed In Paradise” refers to that annoying feeling you experience when something unexpected happens in a place you consider ideal and safe. The cover artwork shows an angel dropping to the earth, representing the eternal struggle between good and evil inside all of us: every track explores the complexity of human soul, from jealousy to hope for a new love, the desire to escape and disobey, the alienation leading to war, in a simple straightforward way. Recorded at Pri Studio in Bologna under the great Roberto Priori's supervision, the album features several special guests: Priori (Danger Zone) himself on “The Game”, the talented Swedish Guitar Hero Tommy Denander on “Inside” and Perfect View's skilled keyboardist Pier Mazzini on all the songs. The result is a touching work that sounds heavy and sweet at the same time, honoring the music from the past. Are you ready to “Feel The Fire”?
The official release party will be held at Alchemica Music Club (Bologna, Italy) on February 7th, 2015.

DETAILS OF THE NEW ALBUM FEATURING FRANCESCO PAOLI FROM FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE
The third and self-titled album from death metal band Embryo will be released on February 10th, 2015.
01. An Awkward Attempt
02. The Pursuit Of Silence
03. Manipulate My Consciousness
04. Insane Lucidity
05. The End Of The Beginning
07. The Touch Of Emptiness
08. The Door To The Abyss
09. My Pounding Void
10. Fragments Of Utopia
11. I Am Pure Hate
Embryo's self titled third album is a step forward in the evolution of the band: the mechanical death metal riffs that characterized “No God Slave” gained depth and melodic accents without losing heaviness and impact; musical arrangements have become more complex going from classical instruments and symphonic choirs to electronic noises and samples, giving the songs new hints at every new listening. Lyrically, “Embryo” is a descent into the Maelström of human soul 'til the door to the abyss that is the denial of being part of mankind. The influences are the same: Meshuggah, Fear Factory, Strapping Young Lad, but with a complete refusal of vocal melodies and a singular arrangements approach. At the drums, a very special guest who decided to give his contribution and to prove himself playing something different from his usual stuff: Francesco Paoli (Fleshgod Apocalypse)! He put his talents to the band's songs to make them even more special and powerful. The result of band's efforts were recorded, mixed and mastered by the Italian producing guru Simone Mularoni (DGM, Empyrios, The Modern Age Slavery, Vision Divine...). The sound is heavy, modern, balanced, a fist of death metal that will blast your stereo and your ears! All music by Eugenio, all lyrics by Roberto, all arrangements by Embryo.
After the recordings, Enea Passarella has officially become the drummer of Embryo.
Italian heavy rockers Dirty Fingers inked a deal with logic(il)logic Records to release their debut album "250 Dollars", whose recording session took place at Atomic Stuff Studio (Isorella, Brescia, Italy) under Oscar Burato's supervision. The album, influenced by some 80's main bands (Motörhead, Metallica), will be published in early 2015.
Dirty Fingers are:
Gabriel Grisanti - Vocals, guitar
Riccardo Menini - Guitar
Edoardo Micheloni - Bass
Giorgio Nuzzo - Drums
The band was founded in summer 2010; through the years, Gabriel Grisanti is the only member from the original line-up who's still in the band. He started as guitar player, but soon he took over the vocal parts as well, after several bad auditions with some singers. Still looking for a rhythm section, Gabriel found the name for the band while playing a '82 Gibson Explorer featuring pick-ups called “dirty fingers”: fascinated by their bold sleazy sound, he realized it perfectly denoted the songs he was creating and decided to keep it as moniker for the band. Once found the missing members, the first three tracks came to light: “250 Dollars”, “Back To The Move” and “Whiskey”. When drummer Giorgio Nuzzo joined in, the band experienced a moment of intense creativity, writing new songs such as “Dirty Fingers”, “I Am”, “Explosive Sound”, “Heroes’ Days”, “Black Magic Night” and “Nothingness Dance”, performing in several Italian cities and also having its songs broadcast on independent New York-based radio “IradioUSA”. However, some line-up problems forced the band to stop and suspend the recording process of its debut album. When guitarist Riccardo Menini and bass player Edoardo Micheloni joined the band, the guys entered the studio drawing the attention of label logic(il)logic Records, with which they inked a deal in November 2014 to release the debut album “250 Dollars”.
SAINTS TRADE INK DEAL WITH logic(il)logic RECORDS
Saints Trade have inked a deal with logic(il)logic Records for their debut cd “Robbed In Paradise”, whose release is scheduled for early 2015.
Saints Trade project was born in Bologna in 2009 with a great will to play music and a sheer passion for glorious Hard Rock bands. After several vicissitudes, in 2010 Claus joined the band, contributing new ideas and sounds thanks to his remarkable guitar playing style. From that moment on, the band started composing its own material and performing live around Italy. After some line-up changes throughout the years, the band got the great opportunity to play at Fleetwoodstock Festival (Fleetwood, UK) in November 2011, as opening act for famous British hard-rockers Ten. The enthusiastic response of the audience to the songs gave Saints Trade an encouragement to enter the studio in April 2012 and record “A Matter Of Dreams”, their first mini-album produced by the legendary Roberto Priori at his Pri Studio. Shortly after, the histrionic bass player Matteo Angelini joined Saints Trade on a permanent basis. With him, the band continued performing live to support the album and get positive feedback from the audience. In early 2013, Saints Trade presented the official video for the song “Face In The Mirror” and opened for British rockers Jettblack in Bologna. Once again, the positive audience response gave the guys a good reason to re-enter the studio. Saints Trade and Roberto Priori got to team up in June 2014, giving birth to Saints Trade's second album called “Robbed In Paradise”. The album features various special guests – Roberto Priory himself, the talented keyboard player Pier Mazzini (Perfect View) and the virtuoso Tommy Denander (Paul Stanley, Alice Cooper, Toto, Robin Beck, House Of Lords…). In November, a new chapter of Saints Trade's project has started with the signing for logic(il)logic Records.

STICKY FINGERS LTD. SIGN WITH logic(il)logic RECORDS
We proudly welcome in our roster The Sticky Fingers Ltd., a rock band from Vignola (Modena, Italy), formed in 1996 by guitarist Lorenzo Mocali, initially with the name Sticky Fingers, a power trio dedicated to 70’s–era blues rock, heavily influenced by The Rolling Stones, Faces, Humble Pie, Beatles, Cream and Lynyrd Skynyrd amongst the others, their sound was characterized by a hybrid of blues, hard rock and psychedelic rock and the live performances displayed a tight band performing classic rock and blues standards with lengthy jams that gained the band a good reputation. They played all over Emilia Romagna and in Northern Italy, also on some prestigious stages, and after some self-produced demos(containing revisited songs from the 70’s and some originals) the band took a hiatus and the musicians were involved in other musical projects before the group reassembled and changed the name in The Sticky Fingers Ltd. In 2013. The new line-up consists of Lorenzo Mocali, guitars and voice, Flash, band’s drummer since 1999 and the new entries Jaypee on bass and Inch on guitar. The sound is now more rock oriented with snarling guitars and a killer drums/bass groove, pumping a compact and dense sound that leads to the composition of new adventurous songs they decide to record during the winter/spring of 2014.In August they find a perfect partner in logic(il)logic Records: the album is scheduled for release on this fall.

This is one of those things we wouldn't want to say. Roberto Tiranti won't be the singer on the next APD's album.
Roberto: “Sometimes it happens that paths separate, it happened before in our lives and we always faced these changes peacefully, without hard feelings. Andrea, a brother to me, knows that this is a very important moment for me and that my first solo work takes priority over all. I'm sure A Perfect Day will keep on proving how good and important their music is and I wish all the best to my successor! A huge hug also to my solid, reliable and talented drummer friend Alessandro Bissa.”.
Andrea and Alessandro: “The friendship between Roberto and us comes before anything else, that's why we support this hard decision and we wish him a successful, rosy future. Good luck mate, thanks for making this project so important with your amazing voice, your heart and your soul. Roberto's voice will accompany us one more time, in a song featured in the new album. We owe you this, we owe it to ourselves. Keep on following us for updates. What's in our future? We've already chosen the new singer and we're sure you'll like him. We can say that his name is Marco Baruffetti and you can listen to him on the new single, scheduled for release on late May. The adventure continues. Together with you all. A Perfect Day.”.
A PERFECT DAY, NEW ALBUM WITH LOGIC(IL)LOGIC RECORDS
A Perfect Day are currently busy with pre-production of the new full-length album, which will be published by logic(il)logic Records and distributed by Andromeda Dischi. This is the second album, after the self-titled debut published in 2012.
Sicilian power-trio Inside The Hole has signed a contract with logic(il)logic Records for the release of its debut album "Impressions".
"We self produced our debut album 'Beer! Sex! ... And Fuckin 'Roll’at the end of 2011 "- said the lead singer Roy Zappia -. " Then, at the end of 2013, we met the boys of logic(il)logic and together we decided that some parts of the album had to be improved, such as lyrics and vocals. We stepped in the recording studio and did what was needed. So we changed the title of the album, it was a natural evolution, and now we truly believe that this work is amazing and ready to conquer new fans everywhere."
"Impressions" contains ten tracks of bloody and genuine rock'n'roll, with a bluesy touch and an American-style, a sound that the band likes to call "Hard 'n' Blues." Like ten bullets shot in a row, supported by a solid rhythm section (Emanuele Cutrona on bass and Alessio Runfola on drums), and enhanced with a cascade of guitar notes played by the frontman Roy Zappia, whose voice, trained with whiskey and cigarettes, is branded on a record that will hardly be unnoticed.
