Mach Dich Frei! – the forth Finsterforst album – boldly crosses all boundaries of the pagan and folk metal genres and invites the listener to a cinematic and epic journey.

Thulcandra – Ascension Lost: „Ascension Lost“ is the third album from Munich Thulcandra, whose reputation as independent and especially melancholic-melodic Black metallers is since the successful debut „Fallen Angel’s Dominion“ excellent. Also on their new record „Ascension Lost“ their darkly majestic riffs are always covered by atmospheric lead guitars and are whipped up by frantic drums.

When the Berlin Wall came down 25 years ago, one of the loudest, flashiest and fastest decades were launched: the 90s! Techno fought grunge, models with spaghetti straps became popstars and in the movies Forrest Gump was in search for happiness. The 90s are still cult and the music by acts like 2 Unlimited, Masterboy, Haddaway, Captain Hollywood Project, Magic Affair, Charly Lownoise or Marusha is still hanging in our ears. The sunshine live „Die 90er” brings the “decade of awesome” and its artists back on the dance floors of the clubs. The fattest tracks of the 90 Club Stars ara now available on the new compilation “sunshine live – die 90er”.

Vintage Vegas are conquering Germany. Las Vegas, almost no city in this world polarizes that much and is associated with glitter, glamor, money and of course Frank Sinatra. Inspired by the ancient lifestyle of the “El Dorado” of gambling and based on the idea to create a modern “Rat Pack” that pack pop hits in a cool Swing sound, the band Vintage Vegas was founded. Vintas Vegas consists of three experienced passionated musicians. The first one is the smart Italian singer Giovanni Zarrella, which can look back sold on nearly 5 million records, trained pianist Tom Marks, who for years worked as a composer, singer and producer for other artists, and Inan Lima, the likeable Brazilian, who is not only a passionate singer and percussionist is, but already shared the stage with the likes of Joe Cocker, Zucchero, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. The cross-over concept of Vintage Vegas is characterized by unique arrangements and a specially compiled 18-member big band consisting of musicians from the SWR and WDR Big Band. With cover songs like “Only Man In The World”, “Don’t You Worry Child” or ” Hangover”, as well as their own compositions “Here I Am” and “For Once In My Life” is not just the typical swing-fans, but also the friends of good pop music will feel appealed to. Vintage Vegas will be for the Swing what “Dick Brave” is for Rockabilly and “Il Divo” for the Classic. With a giant tour as a part of „Holiday on Ice“, Vintage Vegas will travel throughout Germany in winter 14/15 and transform the arenas into a world of glitter, glamor and money.
