Thundermother

Hard rock

High Voltage Rock ‘n’ Roll – Thundermother from Stockholm live and breathe the rock ‘n’ roll. Guitar goddess Filippa Nässil founded the band in 2009. After exceptional singer Guernica Mancini joined the troupe two years ago, a steep international rise began. Her blues-soaked voice invites comparisons with various queens of Classic Rock – with this frontwoman the Swedes have hit the jackpot. Driven by the hard attack of her drummer Emlee Johansson, the ladies show the finger to all those gentlemen who consider rock ‘n’ roll to be an exclusive male domain. With three discs in their luggage and constantly on tour, Thundermother are now ready for the next big throw with their upcoming, hotly anticipated fourth album.

Oversense

German hard rock / metal

An extraordinary mix of catchy melodies, fat guitar riffs, driving drums and the power voice of frontman Danny Meyer, that’s OVERSENSE.

The music of the Lower Franconian band lives on their debut album “The Storyteller”, which will be released on 05/12/2017 via Dr. Music Records, from the variety of songwriting that moves between different metal and rock styles. The combination of hard headbanger riffs, bombastic orchestra and choirs create a unique sound in the form of fast heavy metal tracks to melodious power rock.

In addition to renowned metal festivals such as the Out & Loud and the Christmas Bash Festival, the band has already supported metal greats such as In Extremo and Order Ogan at the Metal Hammer Awards and recently toured europe with metal legend DORO.

In 2012, Oversense was founded as a studio project by Danny Meyer and Patrick Lippert. The first songs were recorded in the home studio and mixed and mastered in collaboration with producer Olaf Reitmeier in the Gatestudio in Wolfsburg.

Soon it was clear: these songs have to be on stage. The missing band members were supplemented by friends and former fellow musicians and also by contacts made via social networks. In 2013, Oversense took to the stage for the first time in full cast.
After the 2014 debut EP “Dreamcatcher”, which was recorded on its own and mixed in the Wolfsburg Gate Studio, work began immediately for her new record “The Storyteller”. After the first drum recordings in February 2015, twelve pieces were created again in close cooperation with the producers Olaf Reitmeier (Avantasia, Kamelot, Epica) and Miro Rodenberg (Edguy, Brainstorm, Rhapsody Of Fire), which were arranged, recorded and produced with great attention to detail.

With “The Storyteller” the Melodic Metaller around singer Danny Meyer, the two guitarists Marco Volpert and Marcel Winkler, bassist Lisa Geiß (ex-Arven) and drummer Patrick Lippert connect directly to their EP. However, they surprise with an extra load of hard riffs and pressing drums, as well as some style experiments.

OVERSENSE have produced an impressive album with “The Storyteller”, which will certainly cause a sensation in the scene. The northern Bavarians confirm that the German melodic metal offspring are in good shape. OVERSENSE have put together a strong team and with their new album they have produced a very special masterpiece that will not only inspire fans of bands like Edguy, Orden Ogan or Brainstorm!

Odeville

Odeville

German-speaking rock

It was the change to German-language music that made the Hamburg band Odeville more accessible. Without giving up the desire for unconventional song structures.

The band’s penultimate album – “Phoenix” – then turned out to be an ingratiating courtesy to the hottest work to date. And made many new fans curious. Over all the past years and records, Odeville have proven again and again what they are ultimately about: repositioning themselves again and again and producing great music with great elegance and unbridled ambition – regardless of all expectations, drawers and already reached fan circles. And then came “Rom” – a strong album on which a lot was completely different and new. Not only for the band itself, but also generally within the German-language rock music scene.

Now the band is currently working on the groundbreaking new album in various studios under the direction of Arne Neurand (Donots, … Trail of Dead, Revolverheld). Does this come full circle? Are completely new doors opening? Who knows … at Odeville a lot, if not everything, is possible!

Marco Mendoza

USA rock

Marco Mendoza, the acclaimed bassist of The Dead Daisies, Thin Lizzy and Whitesnake, will embark on a European spring tour in May 2020.
Marco Mendoza has a musical background that is shaped by his Mexican heritage. At a young age, his grandmother in Tijuana, Mexico, led him through his steps on the piano before turning to the guitar.
After joining local bands in the Los Angeles scene at a young age, his first break was not due to come until 1989, when former Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward recruited him as part of his solo band. This should be his springboard to play with some of the greatest bands and musicians in the rock world, including John Syke’s Blue Murder, Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent and Whitesnake, to name a few.
With his savvy and highly sought-after skills as bassist and singer, he was also a guest musician and session player with Tommy Shaw (Styx), David Coverdale (Whitesnake), Dolores O’Riordan (Cranberries) and Neal Schon (Journey).
