MelodicRock.com, Volume 9 – 15 years later, 2012
It´s actually quite baffling, a site dedicated to melodic rock (very unfashionable) that exists 15 years in 2012. But somehow owner Andrew McNeice has pulled it off. Always looking into new ways to persevere and keep the site (and the family) alive, Andrew has since started a label and started releasing albums. Several of those have been featured here.
The compilation albums mainly serve as money generators, though I am afraid you should not take that all too literally. But as many artists are eager to lend a hand as the site is THE vehicle to reach the rock audience, in the end I hope this makes sense financially. So for the moment it is actually very simple: anyone into the scene and or the music, should support it by buying this double disc. And as a bonus, you get (often unique) songs from the likes of Joe Lynn Turner, Sammy Hagar, Beggars & Thieves, Mecca, Brett Walker, Kelly Keagy, Auras, Mike Tramp, Eden´s Curse, Bonrud, Danny Danzi, Ten, Vega and many many more (all in all 37 songs). Some tracks are even composed for the occasion. Talking about loving the cause! And with names like that, you are sure in for a melodic rock delight!
So head on over to melodicrock.com and spend your hard earned cash on this. The site needs you! Oh, and while you are there, better order the upcoming Volume 10 as well. You know you want to…
