@TGMasqueradeSwe soon on www.onlyrockradio.com #rock #music

A new act has entered the rock scene! The Grand Masquerade is a 4-piece band based in Stockholm with a unique image; combining 80’s rock culture with the Venetian Opera and Masquerade scene from the late 19th century.

The band started out as a studio project by John Sebastian, however more extensive plans evolved. He developed the band by contacting his childhood friend Freddy Claye, whom he had previously performed with, as well as his friend and classmate IvveDanelli (vocalist in Pretty Wild). All the trio needed was the right drummer, and Ivve had just started studying music production with Martin Rhyder (ex. Drummer in Chains), whom he had met some years earlier.

Having acquired a master drummer like Martin, they now had a strong and solid rhythmic foundation to build on. Ivve’s experience in the music industry, his outstanding songwriting abilities, and his powerfully phenomenal vocal range immediately made him a valuable asset to the band. As a natural front man with an energetic and expressive stage presence, Freddy smoothly utilizes his charismatic personality and style, adding harmony with his amazingly unique voice and simultaneously completing the rhythm section. Not only does John have extraordinary skills with shredding a guitar and composing warm melodic hooks, but his knowledge and passion for production and mixing is proven by the perfection on every track.

Once the band was formed, John had an idea for the name of the group, a name which Ivve had planned to use with another project that was never launched, The Grand Masquerade. Everyone agreed that it was a good solid name for them to use. The first time the quartet stepped into the rehearsal studio there was an instant chemistry as everything fell magically into place.

The band was almost complete; the only thing left to do was invent an image, something new and exciting! John had the idea to introduce the Venetian Opera and Masquerade theme into the band to further enhance their name and image. With this complete, the Grand Masquerade was ready to take on the world!

The music genre is best associated with AOR, Melodic and Glam Rock. The musical inspiration is influenced by bands like KISS, Queen, and Def Leppard among others, and the music itself is exceptionally arranged with a modern twist. This is not your average rock band, nor is it just another rock show. The mystique from the masquerade is integrated with the energy from rock music to create an extraordinary audience experience and event.


The Grand Masquerade is:

Freddy Claye – Lead Vocals and Bass
IvveDanelli – Lead Vocals and Guitar
John Sebastian – Guitar and Backing Vocals
Martin Rhyder – Drums and Backing Vocals

We present you TERRA INCΩGNITA.
Terra IncΩgnita was born in 2010. After the self-release of their inaugural album, “Barren Land”, which was received favourably by the press – including Metal Hammer – and having aired their first official music video clip, “OUTCOME”,on Mtv’s Headbangers Ball, the band went through line-up changes. After supporting their album with many lives shows, both locally and abroad,(Rock Harvest Fest, House of Rock, Baltimore, U.S.A.)Terra IncΩgnita had to re-invent itself. This sensitive stage, ultimately forced the band into a 2 year hiatus. 

In 2015, the new and improved Terra Inc
Ωgnita was reborn. Rising from the ashes, the band is solidly driven forward by new members, with fresh ideas, new musical journeys, and a thirst to reach the top. 
The band is currently in the studio, and started pre-production and recordings for their 2nd album, titled, “Fragments of a Ruined Mind”. A concept album, with many twists and unpredictable turns. An E.P. was recorded in mid-2016, as a prelude, titled “Sign with Blood”.

Elephant State

An italian duo EDM/ElectroDance Rock Project, formed in 2014 by

Kosmo – Cosmo Masiello; guitar, programming, recording, mixing and mastering

Straphax – Gabriele Carbone; keyboards & programming.

Was originally created as a Live EDM Music Set, that can perform comfortably, both in small club venues and on larger stages as openers for DJ Sets, Raves and live concerts. However the project has now evolved into something ultimately more interesting, aiming to take Dance music to another level, both live and in the studio.

These two professional, top class musicians, both masters of their art and currently active on the italian music scene as performing and session musicians, decide to join forces, resulting in an explosive mix of Rock, Jazz and ethnic styles, painted on electronic foundations which blend the whole sound into one complete musical work of art.

Each original piece, a masterful and colourful mix of Electronic Music, Dance, House, Deep House, Techno and Trance, with Jazz and Rock overtones and some Ethnic styles thrown in, is composed and arranged by G.Carbone/C.Masiello, into a single and unique canvas bursting with masterfully woven musical sketches that flow with ease into a delta of sound, bringing line, shape, form, colour, texture, light and shadow to even the most critical of musical ears.

After having engaged a third, silent background member to the team in february 2017, Remo Fiore who is actively involved with the project and deals mainly with all of their graphic design, video creation and online presence regarding social media, the guys have seen a discreet increase in interest and followers on all platforms they are present on across the web. Although they are still at the start, they have had large positive reaction to their music, videos and everything they have published on line up until now.

As a result of their relentless hard work on line, in april 2017, they were offered and finally signed a contract for the release of two singles with the small but efficient independent record label Pink Dolphin Music Ltd/Melting Clock Records in the Uk and their first single “Heritage” was released on the Melting Clock Record label on 9th June 2017, with a second release programmed for later this year and have also been involved in remixing a track for a collaboration between Deep Down Dirty Records UK and Love Vibration Nation Music and Publishing LLC in the US,  entitled “Look Up” which is scheduled for release within the near future.

They have also been working on a new remix for an up and coming italian rock band called Il Grido of the debut single from the newly released album, which is scheduled for release for for the end of june, beginning of july this year, definitely something worthwhile waiting for…!

Elephant State are based in Italy, but are willing to travel as far as necessary to perfom & promote their sound.

John Robson – The Whisky Made Me Do It
Contact: john@jrguitar.co.uk twitter.com/JRobsonGuitar
Blues-Rock guitar with fiery virtuoso
shredding and strong melodies! That’s
the best way to describe the new album
from guitar ace John Robson.
John is a veteran of the Teesside music
scene, having played with countless
bands over the years. He brings his own
brand of melodic instrumental guitar to
the fore on this new album. With influences ranging from Gary Moore to Muse; Ry Cooder to
Michael Schenker, it’s safe to say that guitar fans are going to LOVE this album!
A couple of the tracks from the album, (the Steve Morse-like “The Home Stretch” and the
ridiculously catchy “Don’t Tell Him, Pike”), have featured on the playlist of BBC Tees, John’s local
radio station, whilst his charity single for the Teesside Steel Appeal was featured on Zetland FM,
the community radio station for John’s home town of Redcar.
For more details on the album, please contact John via:

Escucha a los madrileños @repriserocknroad @RepriseRnR en www.onlyrockradio.com


Reprise somos un grupo de rock del Barrio del Pilar, Madrid, con ganas de prenderle fuego al asfalto.

La historia del grupo se remonta a 2013, en la cual cuatro de los integrantes nos unimos para comenzar a crear un proyecto de grupo, pero por diversas vicisitudes y el tiempo que nos había tocado vivir, dos tuvieron que emigrar a Londres con la idea de poder prosperar.

En 2015 tenemos la oportunidad de volver a reunirnos y sumar a nuestra filas a un quinto integrante que cierra la formación que queríamos, una formación clásica de rock de voz, dos guitarras, batería y bajo.

A finales de ese año debutamos en la sala Starving y desde entonces hemos procurado ir tachando todas las salas de Madrid de nuestra lista (LemOn, Caracol, LaMala, But, Gruta 77, Jimmy Jazz, Hebe, Cabaret…) y actuando en fiestas de barrio y pueblos (Barrio del Pilar, Quintana, Santurde…).

También hemos ganado un concurso de bandas y quedado finalistas en otros dos.

Y entretanto hemos podido grabar un disco totalmente autoproducido (grabado, mezclado y maquetado íntegramente por nosotros), que hemos conseguido sacar a la luz el 17 de marzo de 2017.

Esta es nuestra breve, aunque intensa, historia…
