Lucassen & Soeterboek’s Plan Nine – Before The Morning Comes

An essential figure in today’s progressive rock and metal, Arjen Lucassen explored his archives to bring out pieces with a blues rock tendency recorded thirty years ago with singer Robert Soeterboek.

Johnny Mafia – Rules Bulls Bells

Here is “Rules Bulls Bells”, the new single from Johnny Mafia, ironically described as “a song that talks about a friendship that ends badly between a man and a bull. In other words, Francis Cabrel’s Corrida of 2024.” Find him on 2024: Year of the Dragon, album scheduled for February 9.
