NEW BAND -added to Redlion Family

We give a very warm welcome to THE TROUSERS from Hungary. The Trousers is a garage rock/hard rock band from Budapest, Hungary. Their main musical influences are 70’s rock and roll groups (The Rolling Stones, Iggy & The Stooges, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC) and contemporary rockbands like The Hellacopters, Monster Magnet or BRMC. The band was formed around 2005 in Budapest by Zoltan Kovary, who was a guitarist of famous hungarian indie rock band Amber Smith (between 2004 and 2009). After many member changes, concerts and an EP in 2007, they released their first album Planetary process in 2008 featuring Blood for you, a No 1 hit on hungarian national radio. The song was also released in the US and France on compilations. Although there are several heavy garage rock songs on the album (like Doctor keep your hands off me, which was a Top 5 song on a Belgian radio), the material is more indie-rock influenced, thanks to that age and Kovary’s position in Amber Smith. From 2009 the band turned into 100% garage and retro hard rock genre, and left their indie influences (Primal Scream, Doves or Oasis) behind. In this period they had played important shows in Hungary (Sziget Festival, A38) but also performed in Denmark (Gutter City Garage Rock Festival, opening for the mighty Blue Van), Germany (Melt! Festival), Belgium (Botanique Club), Austria, Czeh Republic. The second LP, Soul machine came out in 2010, which was a great leap forward musically. It contained fast and mid-tempo rock and roll songs with some psychedelic and hard soul tastes. The album was nominated for best hard rock album of Hungary in the year 2011, and they also had an offer from CBS’ Hawaii 5.0 for their song Too tough to tame. The video of the single Mortal moon appeared on different sites and online TV-s, for example Rock Label TV in Switzerland. In 2010 summer they played at Hegyalja Festival Hungary, on the same stageas their long time hero Motörhead. In 2010-2011 they had tours in Czeh Republic and Romania as well. In 2012 The Trousers began to work on Freakbeat. They released Sister Sludge EP with four new songs and a cover of Cornershop’s great rock and roll tune Lessons learned from Rocky I to Rocky III. The singer and songwriter of Cornershop Tjinder Singh gave permission for the cover personally, and really loved The Trouser’s version. Freakbeat finally came out in the spring of 2013, and all the reviews agree that this is their strongest work until now. The first single, I get around was pretty succesful, it appeared on hungarian national radio and MTV, and on a lot of sites and tv shows, for example on the site of New Musical Express. The album itself had very good reviews, not only in their homeland but also in the middle european area (Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Czeh Republic) and in Italy, Germany and UK. One of the greatest moments on this LP is that there is an outstanding guest musician on thesong Real Deep Groove, namely Nicke Andersson, former leader of legendary swedish rockgroup The Hellacopters. Andersson, who plays a guitar solo on this number, found thematerial impressive, and said he would happy to see The Trousers as an opening act for his current band Imperial State Electric. This project was managed by Lars Erik Tindre, former swedish embassy secretary in Budapest, who have a rock management in Sweden called Sister Sludge Management. Lasse is helping The Trousers to make it in Scandinavia. In december, 2013 they played a gig in Budapest together with Honky from Texas, USA (featuring the members of Butthole Surfers and Down) and Peter Pan Speedrock from Holland. A few months later, in February, 2014 The Trousers released a new video for the song Fear of the city. It contains a lot of live footages shot on A38 standing ship, which was elected as „the best club in the world” a few years ago. On that night (2013, 25th of march) The Trousers opened for Peter Hook (ex Joy Division, ex New Order). After playing on some festivals in the summer, the band will begin to work on their fourth studio album.

We give a very warm welcome to BLACKSLASH from Germany. Take out the old band shirts; put your faded skinny jeans into your white sneakers and get back on track! Get ready to meet metal-warriors, punks and progheads, ‘cause tonight Blackslash’s live on stage. Applauding, singing along to an epic chorus and draining tinned beer – that’s what it’s all about. When your old Sabbath-shirt is nothing more than a sweated rag, you know that Blackslash are the ones to save your hope for an 80’s revival of Heavy Metal of the glorious days. Though the young band from Donaueschingen, Black Forest, Germany, was founded in 2007, they play the music your parents used to listen to (and were told not to listen). Old-School-Heavy-Metal, that’s what the five guys around bass player Alec Trojan stand for. And by playing neckbreaking concerts they give evidence to that. At this a galloping bass reminds you on Iron Maiden; two-part guitars let you travel time into the golden era of Thin Lizzy, while the melodious singing of front man Clemens Haas takes control over your mind. A faithful and steadily growing fan crowd is astonished every concert by the ease Christian Haas is stroking the strings with, to push his amps to the limit supported by a second guitar Daniel Hölderle. Meanwhile David Hofmeier tortures his drums to end up in a climax of dynamic and speed.
The fact that Blackslash is not about smooth-edged pop music is approved by their fans since the release of their “Blackslash EP” in 2011. The rough and edgy Heavy-Metal disc seemed to have the finger right on the pulse and touched the nerve of the bored lunatics and winos around the South of Germany. After just a few concerts the record was sold out and therefore Blackslash started planning their debut album that winter.
By the release of “Separate But Equal” they succeeded in becoming the most charismatic rock act in their region and attracted the local’s press attention to themselves.

containing their first original song, Liberty is Dead, and two covers of Megadeth and Wolf. The
demo was recorded with programmed drums, and Simon recorded the bass.  At the end of 2009, the band found drummer Richard Fredriksson, and in early 2010, they entered the studio to record another demo, containing three original songs. The band played a few gigs,before finding bassplayer Martin Giaever. Now, with the line-up complete, and more songs had been written, the band recorded the EP High-speed thrashing maniacs. The vocals of the EP was produced by Wolf singer and frontman Niklas Stålvind, and was recorded in his homestudio. It was released in 2011. The EP got in the eyes and ears of Sliptrick records, and landed the band their first contract.
The record label released gave the EP an official digital release in 2012, while the band was booking a studio to start recording their first full-length album. Due to creative and personal reasons, drummer Richard Fredriksson had to be let go. The band was lucky enough to quickly find a new drummer, Henrik Persson, and the line-up was once again
complete. After intense rehearsing with the new drummer, the band entered the studio in spring of
2012, to finally record the debut-album Ashes of the declined. The album was digitally released in
November of that year. The physical release was pushed back because of some complications,
but was finally released in early 2013. After the bands contract with Sliptrick records had run out Arsenite signed with Rambo Music and are now working to release their album in 2014. Arsenite: Real metal for high-speed thrashing maniacs.

We give a very warm welcome to KING'S CALL from Germany. Alex Garoufalidis has jammed and recorded with the likes of Graham Bonnet (Alcatrazz), and Chuck Wright (House Of Lords, Quiet Riot). His melodic style gives King’s Call its powerful and distinctive sound. Every song a winner; all music and lyrics are written by founding member Alex Garoufalidis, and sung by Mike Freeland, one of the top vocalists of the genre, who is known for his work fronting the legendary Praying Mantis. Chris Tsangarides the British Grammy-nominated record producer, sound engineer, and mixer, once again produced Lion’s Den, the band’s second album, and the follow-up to their debut 2011 release, “Destiny”. Tsangarides became a legend in his own time through his work with Gary Moore, Yngwie Malmsteen, Judas Priest and Thin Lizzy, to name but a handful. Tsangarides has also worked with pop-rock and alternative artists, including Depeche Mode and Tom Jones, which result in his Hard Rock productions having a wider appeal than most other typical releases in that genre. Dennis Ward, bass-player, producer-engineer and founding member of Pink Cream 69, mastered the album into an epic sounding melodic hard rock masterpiece.

Haelo

We give a very warm welcome to HAELO from Hungary. After several successfull demos and EPreleases, HAELO band (formerly known as After@All) was refounded and refreshed in March 2007 with new members and new plans. The new line-up started gigging around Hungary with full force and they also made efforts on introducing themselves in other countries, just like Germany, Austria or Slovakia. But meanwhile they did not forget to work on the debut album as well. Supporting KARNIVOOL in München, Germany (March, 2010) was probably the most important concert in the life of Haelo. Sharing the stage (and even the backstage) with the australian genius-band gave much inspiration and enthusiasm for the Hungarian guys. December 2011 Haelo was signed by Warner Music's Hungarian partner, Magneoton and the band came out with the 11-track debut album, called AGEUSIA. The new record was digitally released in 39 countries and also can be downloaded from iTunes.

We give a very warm welcome to PERTNESS from Switzerland. Pertness, thats true, indipendent Heavy Metal from the Bernese Highlands. The Album „Seven Times eternity“, which was released 2008, gave Pertness a recording contract with Karthago Records (Germany). The rhytmic, fast, melodic Powermetal songs got enthusiastic, not only locally but also beyond state.
The following album „From the beginning to the end“, which was released 2010, has been enriched with folk- and trash elements. In addition the very good sales figues, the album earned a lot of excellent critism. For example Metal Hammer 6/7 P: „With this album, Pertness really did everything right“.
Pertness live concerts are high-energy affairs. The guys, playing in kilts, deliver always a fast-paced, motion-rich show, already proved on different shows and festivals. The latest album "Frozen Time" was released on 9th of november 2012.
