DeFox Records and Eur Records are proud to announce the return of PAUL & Electronics with a new single


DeFox Records and Eur Records are proud to announce the return of PAUL & Electronics with a single titled "Ethereal" Feat. Irene Brigitte, that will be available on the digital market from May 31th, 2018 in all the best webstores,  iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play Music, Tidal, Shazam......and many more.

Ethereal is a song written almost by chance to complete a path started at the end of 2015 with the use of synths of the latest generation.
Paolo Electron had to find an expressive, warm and particular voice for an oneiric dreamy song like Ethereal. Thanks to the sound engineer Nik Freego with whom Paolo Electron has been collaborating for over 10 years, he met the brilliant singer Irene Brigitte.
Irene Brigitte, coming from very different experiences ranging from folk to baroque music, was able to capture with extreme delicacy the message and the evocative sound of Ethereal, enriching with skill and professionalism the electronic and ambient sounds of the piece.
The elaboration and modulation of Irene Brigitte's voice make the song charming and captivating.

Paolo Electron plans to continue to collaborate with Irene Brigitte as he believes it will be stimulating for both of them by producing positive feelings for an attentive listener.
The piece describes the positive and cathartic effect of the flute sound that heals all suffering and offers the possibility of redemption and a better life.

X-HERO All Universe EP con Heart Of Steel Records


Mirko DeFox e gli X-HERO per celebrare il 30° dall'uscita del debut album, datato 1987, pubblicano un EP intitolato "All Universe" con quattro brani inediti, "All'Universe", "Long legs Razorblade","My ship knows" e la ballad "Winter soul"  registrati a metà degli anni 2000 presso i Vision Studios di Vicenza.

Come racconta Mirko, il repertorio della band in quegli anni si muoveva con sonorità legate al Melodic Hard Rock con venature raffinate di Prog Metal e Rock Fusion.
La costante ricerca di Mirko ad esplorare soluzioni stilistiche distanti dall'omologazione con i trend e i generi del momento, lo porta  a ideare un album diverso, più viscerale possibile, dove le glorie del passato sono appena percettibili e le tonalità, i riff e gli arrangiamenti diventano così una caotica raccolta di umori inespressi. 
L'album per vari motivi non vedrà mai la luce ma oggi dopo oltre un decennio alcuni brani registrati verranno pubblicati sotto forma di EP.



Con Mirko DeFox la  line-up si completava vedendo Herman Tonini (attuale axeman della band) e Paris Bertoldo alle chitarre, Davide Pangrazzi alla batteria e Ivano Pangrazzi al basso.
Gli X-HERO con questa formazione si sono esibiti live nel nord Italia e in Slovenija e Croazia, da ricordare le performance alle edizioni 2005 e 2007 dell'80's Italian Metal Legion" Festival, nel 2005 l'80's Italian Metal Legion WINTER's Season, i concerti con Bud Tribe, Rain, Dark Ages, Heat, Rosko's.
La visonaria cover artwork è realizzata dallo straordinario RRR Remi Real Rock per ANL.

L'EP è stato pubblicato il 31 di Marzo 2018 e distribuito in tutto il mondo sui migliori digital stores, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play Music e molti altri.

DeFox Records and Eur Records announce second album of Mistermat titled White Cat for an Hardblues


DeFox Records e Eur Records annunciano il secondo album  di Mistermat intitolato "White Cat for an Hardblues", la release contiene 10 canzoni caratterizzate da un caldo Blues Rock , intenso e viscerale.
Il prodotto sarà disponibile a partire dal 17 di Febbraio, 2018 in CD a tiratura limita e su tutti i migliori webstores, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play Music, Tidal, Shazam...

L'intento di Matteo Favretto aka Mistermat è realizzare un album che non fosse soltanto uno sterile contenitore di canzoni.
Come dice lui stesso "Ho voluto mettere le idee in ordine, ma creatività e razionalità sono in me, in eterno conflitto, ho pensato così di scrivere semplicemente come mi sentivo in quel periodo., gran parte dei pezzi si sono sviluppati in pochi giorni, mi sentivo spontaneo e sereno, nonostante stessi trascorrendo un periodo personale piuttosto agitato.
Blackboard, il brano che apre l’album, parla di un ragazzo in stato di esaurimento nervoso, nella sua mente c’è confusione quasi psichedelica, sa come uscirne ma teme di aprire l’ultima porta che trova davanti a se, e scoprire il cambiamento che essa rappresenta.
Il concept dell’album è un tortuoso percorso interiore, che porta alla propria consapevolezza."

Mistermat continua "Amo molto la musica semplice, con pochi accordi e molta intensità e cerco suoni incisivi, presenti e graffianti. 
Mi sento un musicista rock e blues, tengo alla italianità delle mie composizioni, poiché penso che possa dare un tocco di originalità al mio stile ed al mio genere musicale.
Per questo motivo ho pensato ad un gatto bianco (White Cat) che suona rockblues, balzellando beffardo e senza curarsene troppo tra l’essere italiano e il comporre brani in un genere tra il blues (musica nera) ed il rock (che per certi versi potremmo considerare più occidentale!)
Infine uso il termine Hardblues piuttosto che rock blues, poiché rappresenta maggiormente il mio percorso (ascolto dei grandi musicisti, studio, cover bands in cui ho suonato ecc.) ed anche allude alla mia più grande aspirazione artistica, Essere un vero bluesman!"

HEART Of STEEL Records is proud to announce the return of the metallers NOCTURNA A.D. with a new single


DeFox Records and HEART of STEEL Records are proud to announce the return of the metallers NOCTURNA A.D. with a new single titled "The Devil behind everything" that will be available on the digital market from November 28th, 2017 in all the best webstores, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play Music, Tidal, Shazam...and many more.
The official video will be available exclusively on the 20th of November on the website www.musicafollia.com and on the blog of rock-italy.blogspot.it and in distribution in the international digital platform from November 28th.

"The Devil behind everything" is the new single and video with which Nocturna A.D. anticipates the publication of a new release consisting of 4 tracks planned for next autumn, which will see important changes at the musical level compared to previous works, both thanks at the entrance to the line-up of the new singer, both in terms of composition and structure.



The new EP includes the artistic influences of the individual bands mate. Contrary to previous record releases, the EP will contain different pieces, ranging from classical BlackMetal, to Industrial contamination of early works, rather than to markedly electronic intermedias.
The EP was produced, mixed and mastered at the Rock Lab Studio by Andreas Polito.
The release date of the EP is currently still to be defined.

X-HERO official release date of Cosmic Virgin is November 19, 2017



Mirko DeFox and X-HERO to celebrate the 30 years since the release of the debut album, dated 1987, publish a EP entitled "Cosmic Virgin" with two unpublished tracks, "My ship knows" and "Long legs Razorblade" recorded in the middle of the years 2000 at the Vision Studios in Vicenza.

As Mirko tells, the band's repertoire was moving with melodic Hard Rock tunes with finest Prog Metal and Fusion.
Mirko's constant search for stylistic solutions away from homologation with trends and genres of the moment, leads him to create a different, visceral album where the glories of the past are barely perceptible, and the shades, riffs and arrangements so they become a chaotic collection of unexpressed moods.
For a variety of reasons, the album will never see the light but after a decade, some recordings will be released in the form of EP.



The song "My ship knows" is an explicit metaphor on the journey of humanity in search of a truth until now denied, while "Long legs Razorblade" evokes contradictions of sometimes life-threatening, sometimes deadly and relentless life.
With Mirko DeFox the line-up was completed by Herman Tonini (current band axeman) and Paris Bertoldo on guitars, Davide Pangrazzi on drums and Ivano Pangrazzi on bass.
The X-HERO performed live in northern Italy and in Slovenia and Croatia, to remember the performances of the 2005 and 2007 editions of the 80's Italian Metal Legion Festival, in 2005 the 80's Italian Metal Legion WINTER's Season, concerts with Bud Tribe, Rain, Dark Ages, Heat, Rosko's.

The visonary cover artwork is made by the extraordinary RRR Remi Real Rock for ANL.

The official release date is November 19, 2017, and the product will be distributed around the world on the best digital stores, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play Music and many more.
