If you’re looking for a band with shredding guitar, heavy grooves, and operatic vocals, look no further than New Jersey’s own Lethal Affection.

Joined by lead vocalist Noah Simon, and by drummer Cameron Rozell, this high-energy outfit is proving that rock and roll is still very much alive and well.

Today Lethal Affection releases a new video for the single “Frozen in Time” – check it out below. The single appears on upcoming full-length album “Choose a Side” due out this fall.

Blackmore Releasing “Neo” Album

Blackmore’s “Neo” album is coming July 22nd, 2016. Primarily made up of Armenian-American members, Blackmore is fronted by Greek lead vocalist K’noup of global rock artists Viza. K’noup has spent years as a seasoned frontman touring alongside bands such as Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Skindred and Gogol Bordello.

K’noup is glad to see the fruits of the band’s labor, having recently joined as a new member. “We came together when I was asked to track vocals for a compilation concept album shortly after Blackmore’s former singer had to leave. What we created thereafter was the track ‘Tsunami.’ The immediate chemistry within the new line-up inspired us to continue to where we currently are. Music to me is never meant to be questioned no matter what the circumstance.”

Blackmore began introducing fans to “Neo” last summer by releasing one new track from the album per month. You can listen to all of the currently released tracks now below.

“Neo” was produced by Yury Anisonyan and mastered by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering (Faith No More, Sepultura, Halford, Cynic). Pre-orders will become available soon.
