Time goes by and by accident Tholle runs into Arvid one late night at the pub, they haven't seen eath other for at least 10 years but Tholle tell Arvid the idea about getting together, have a cup of coffee, and just play for a while. Not without a doubt Arvid finally agree. Rka is contacted but has no interest in the band so the ask Bobban from the local ska band The Liptones to join in.

American guitarist Tara Lynch launch Evil Enough album with many guests

Tara Lynch is an American guitarist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. Tara will be releasing her new single “Trustless” from her forthcoming debut album “Evil Enough” on Friday, February 10, 2017. “Evil Enough” is a melodic metal album full of rich guitar dominant tracks, all written by Tara Lynch. Along with Tara on all lead/rhythm guitars, this album features an all-star lineup of high-profile guest musicians including Tony MacAlpine and Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, KISS, Alice Cooper, Yngwie Malmsteen, Billy Idol) on keyboards, Björn Englen (Yngwie Malmsteen, Tony MacAlpine, Quiet Riot, Soul Sign, Dio Disciples) and Phil Soussan (Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol, Last In Line) on bass, Brian Tichy (Whitesnake, Billy Idol, Foreigner, Ozzy Osbourne) and Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper) on drums and the virtuoso vocals of Mark Boals (Yngwie Malmsteen, Uli Jon Roth, Dokken, Dio Disciples, Raiding the Rock Vault).

Says Tara, “Both the concept and meaning behind 'Trustless' are autobiographical. I've been through life's toughest moments and have come out on the other side much stronger for it. I've decided to tell my story both for therapeutic reasons and also in hopes that it can relate to and offer support to others in the same situation.

“The entire 'Evil Enough' album is a musical autobiography. Very often, the term 'blood, sweat and tears' is used as a metaphor to describe the work one puts in to something that they are 110% invested in. This would be an accurate metaphor where I am concerned. It has been a tremendously emotional journey into my own soul in order to both write the lyrics that explain my experiences, as well as write the melodies to convey the feelings involved within each experience.”

“Tara Lynch has a beautiful natural vibrato that I have only heard in the very top guitar players” - Derek Sherinian

Primarily self-taught, Tara played both electric and acoustic guitar and wrote songs in her childhood, picking up the bass guitar, drums and piano along the way. Very serious about her musicianship and the unending desire to improve, Tara has personally studied guitar with Steve Vai (Frank Zappa, David Lee Roth, Whitesnake, Alcatrazz), drums with Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), bass with Björn Englen (Yngwie Malmsteen, Tony MacAlpine, Quiet Riot, Soul Sign, Dio Disciples) and piano with Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, KISS, Alice Cooper, Yngwie Malmsteen, Billy Idol).

In 2015, Tara accepted the invitation from Geert Fiew (founder of Belgian band Beyond the Labyrinth) to write and perform guitar solos on Beyond the Labyrinth's upcoming fourth album, “The Art of Resilience”, to be released in early 2017. At the same time, Tara began writing for her own upcoming debut album, “Evil Enough”.

“Tara is just a pure pleasure and honor to work with. She knows what she wants but yet so humble and grateful. And what a talent! And did I mention sweetheart?” – Björn Englen

Featured performers on Tara Lynch’s “EVIL ENOUGH”:
Mark Boals (vocals)
Björn Englen (bass)
Tony MacAlpine (keyboards)
Derek Sherinian (keyboards)
Glen Sobel (drums)
Phil Soussan (bass)
Brian Tichy (drums)

On “Evil Enough”, all songs are written by Tara Lynch, who performs all lead and rhythm guitars, and on some tracks, bass guitar.

“After knowing her as a friend for many years, I knew it would be fun, but working with Tara is like holding a Tiger by the tail, she is so full of talent and energy, knows exactly what she wants and is not afraid to go for it! It was a really great experience!” - Mark Boals

In closing Tara has this to impart, “This album has been a labor of love and an important part of both my personal and musical growth process. At the end of the day, it's an album that I am extremely proud of and I really hope it touches people out there in the world who can relate to it and that it can help them know they're not alone.”

Along with the release of “Evil Enough” in 2017, Tara Lynch plans to tour. “Let's rock!” - Tara Lynch

Long Branch Records is proud to announce Uneven Structure

Long Branch Records is proud to announce the signing of the french progressive metal sextet Uneven Structure. Their new album "La Partition", which they've worked on for almost four years now, will be released internationally in Spring 2017.

"La Partition" is a full concept album and the follow-up to the bands first EP "8" (2009) and their debut full-length "Februus" (2011) which both received great feedback and critical acclaim. More details will be revealed very soon!

Hailing from France, one of the biggest markets and breeding stock for bands within the Tech Metal and Progressive Rock scene, Uneven Structure was formed in may 2008 from the intention of Benoit Friedrich (bass) and Igor Omodei (guitar) to finally bring the technically enhanced and progressive music they had been working on for themselves alive. The sound they were aiming to create was a one of a kind merger of groovy polyrythmic guitar riffs with huge slick of ambient guitar leads, which they undoubtedly accomplished. Since the release of the debut album "Februus" in 2011 the band did multiple European tours with tech metal and prog rock genre-leaders such as Protest The Hero, Textures or Tesseract and performed at festivals such as Brutal Assault or Euroblast. 

While listening to the new album "La Partition" you will hear and feel the progress and growing the band made since "Februus", due to the fact that their sound is now even more complex and perfectly arranged, catchy, experimental and technically enhanced, but also groovy. A perfect combination of the hardness of metal with the elaborate techniques of prog and the atmospheric sounds of ambient. Not only has the sound of Uneven Structure been growing and changing with this new album, but also the band internally. With Arnaud Verrier on drums (ex Zuul FX and Kadinja) and Steeves Hostin (Beyond The Dust) as guitarist the band is more than perfectly prepared to continue their legacy, but also to open a new chapter in their musical career by performing mindblowing live shows all over the world.

Fake Billy & The False Prophets: a name that creates as many questions as expectations, and that's exactly the way Fake Billy likes it. Raw energy, strong songs and catchy hooks. Their first performance at 4:30 a.m. at some trash-party ended in blood on the floor beside the toilet and sweat dripping down the walls. Since then cellars, bars and festivals have ensured Fake Billy & The False Prophets developed into a razorsharp band with a tight garage-trash-rock 'n roll sound.

Their 2015 debut album Chickboy was well received by Dutch press. It brought them airplay on Dutch national radio and they toured extensively.

Celine Dion is the first single from their upcoming sophomore album scheduled for later this year. It is released under TCBYML sub-label BERT, dedicated to young musical talent. BERT was launched in 2016 and was created especially for Dutch artists and bands. BERT is exciting, challenging, new, enterprising, a feeling, a friend, full of idealism, adventurous and honest.

Fake Billy & The False Prophets - Celine Dion is released this week and available for purchase/streaming on all known digital platforms.

GOBLIN COCK Necronomidonkeykongimicon vinyl version available

The band's upcoming release invokes the spirit of Pure Fun while appeasing their love of Doomed Art. Necronomidonkeykongimicon is an auditory tome of such importance that it needs to be experienced before the Secret Bastards find a way to marginalize it out of existence forever.

Goblin Cock is a band from beyond time, beyond space, beyond your naive concept of dimension in METAL. Since before your pathetic "god" had supposedly "created" you and your kind, Lord Phallus was hunkered in a cybertimeship/fun-dungeon skating the layers of what was considered "true metal" in all societies and in all generations. Eventually His Majesty realized that he really didn't care and launched a full-scale war against bland metal with an emphasis on ACTUALLY HAVING A GOOD TIME!

Goblin Cock is a heavy metal side project founded by Rob Crow (Pinback) hailing from San Diego, California. With all of its members taking on stage names like Lord Phallus (Rob Crow), Larben The Druid (Lara Benscher) and Bane Ass-Pounder (Dave Drusky), Goblin Cock is a tongue-in-cheek project which lyrically covers an array of unusual topics.

Available in purple vinyl, black vinyl, CD, digital. VIP exclusive comes in Halloween Orange vinyl w/ Blood Red Splatter and a bonus EP, a Cock Opera entitled “Dragonfucker” on a black 12” – with a screen-printed b-side, featuring visual art by Craig Horky.

Barbarossa band founded in March 2014 by Lorenzo and Davy, at guitars. 
After meeting in a pub they decided to give birth to a new musical project.
They started to work with hate and love (musically talking), while Lorenzo was Death metal sound-oriented Davy came from a Thrash Metal background and they both wanted to impose their will. 
After some weeks of insults, came the discovery of the concept of diplomacy and they started to go in the right way. They decided to create something based on ferocity, obscurity and melody….something modern but still with solid roots planted in the tradition of death and thrash metal. 
Something technical but that anyway puts the focus on spontaneity of the songwriting.

After some time Cristiano took place behind the drum heads, giving shape and power to Davy’s still unripe riffs, while in the meantime Lorenzo was given the task to make the walls tremble with growl vocals and to dash off the first lyrics.
To complete the line-up, arrived Alex on Bass guitar. He has a really well kept beard, worked out fingers and a growl as deep as an oceanic trench, so how could him not being in?
Barbarossa’s live debut arrived in December 2014 at Britannia pub in Vedelago, with a baptism of fire over expectations and a wide appreciation by the crowd witch pushed the band to carry on the project and to ask the best from herself.
So went on with satisfaction live activity In Northern Italy with some live gigs in Veneto and Emilia Romagna.
Today Barbarossa entering in the underground metal scene with their first ep: Operation Barbarossa, the fruit of long session of composition, whole nights playing and to conceive a lot of songs that they can collect the positive opinion of the worldwide metal kids ...Barbarossa is ready!!

Cristiano Perin: Drums 
Alex Omega: Bass
