DOKKEN       Lightning Strikes Again
Frontiers Records (release: April 11th, 2008)

Yeah, old Don is back, still present in the music world since Breaking The Chains, the first DOKKEN's album released in 1983, it makes you realize that we're not getting any younger ! Many changes of musicians occurred (there's only drummer Mick Brown left) but Don has found excellent ones again, you can trust him. Lightning Strikes Again is their tenth studio release, which leads you to the melodic Hard Rock world and will light again the Olympic flame which had gone out on some albums.Jean-Luc

Warrel DANE       Praises To The War Machine
Century Media (release: April 28th, 2008)

If you're a fan of NEVERMORE, here's the first solo album of singer Warrel Dane. It's really different from what he makes with them: many cool songs, it's very melodic. He plays two covers: Lucretia My Reflection from THE SISTERS OF MERCY and Paul Simon's Patterns. So, while waiting for the release of NEVERMORE's next album, you should listen to this one. Oh yeah, I forgot: Dirk Verbeuren (ex-SCARVE) is on drums.Jean-Luc
