Roxx Records is very excited to announce the signing of Brazilian hard rock band Sunroad to release the bands seventh studio album throughout the United States. Sunroad started out in 1996 and have been playing their brand of melodic hard rock now for over 20 years with six releases, a best of collection and a live DVD under their belt these guys show no sign of slowing down.

Having just finished recording their seventh studio album entitled “Wing Seven” the band is ready to get back at it, playing shows, maybe hooking up as part of a tour and just play their music to the people wherever they can go.

The sound of Sunroad could be defined as a very dynamic hard rock band with some blues and progressive rock influences thrown in their as well. They have toured all over, and have played with many great bands and artists through the years, including playing shows with LA Guns, Whitecross, Petra, Joe Lynn Turner and Stryper to name a few.

Rainforce – “Lion’s Den”

Straight from Switzerland comes Rainforce, bringing back a straight ahead hard rock sound from the late 70’s and 80’s.

Rainforce is the brainchild of Andy La Morte and Matt Brand, both from the Swiss doom metal band Pÿlon.  They picked up Benjamin Mann (Power of God) from Germany and Maltese singer Jordan Cutajar, who also spent some time in Pÿlon.

Some albums transport the listener to another era and Rainforce seem to be aiming at that on their debut album Lion’s Den.  Given the number of ex- and current Pÿlon members in the band, one might think this will be another doom metal project, but that is not even close to what is going on in these songs.  Think late 70’s and 80’s hard rock like Nazareth, Sabbath, and AC/DC with a heavy dose of bands like Petra and Whitecross, and you have a pretty good idea of what Rainforce sounds like.  Starting out with a group shout of “We are living in lion’s den” in full 80’s hair metal style and then the band comes in.  Unfortunately, the production and some of the guitar overlays do not sound very good at all and even the lion roar to kick off this track seems like it was added from several rooms away.  Lyrically, the band’s Christian beliefs come through loud and clear but to the point it seems a bit forced, but in that respect as well, this album reminds me of those older bands and the early days of “Christian Rock”.
