The release date to be announced soon and the digital album will be launched on every worldwide webstores, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play, Tidal, Shazam...

"Origins" is an album that Ricky want to put his feelings into it. It's not a crazy guitar solo album with million note for second, but an album that mix of heavy side at the begin and moving to a lighter side of his guitar playing. It's an album that you can hear without effort cause isn't just crazy instrumental stuffs, but has nice melodies here and there who tries to give you some moments of thinking about whats going on, but also gives you moments of just relaxation and peace.

Song by song:

01 - Stand Your Ground
The concept behind Stand Your Ground is mantain your position, focus and belief. No matter the adversity life brings to you.

02 - Three Days
When I wrote ''Three Days'' I was playing a video game called ''The Legend of Zelda - Majora's Mask'' where the hero ''Link'' has only Three Days to save the world from a catastrophic Moon Fall.

03 - Black Materia
This a song that I wrote many years ago when I used to play with some friends in a little church in my hometown in Sorocaba, Brazil. We wanted to have a dark and heavy instrumental song. So I came home after our rehearsal and created this song after many hours looking for nice tappings and harmony parts. When I finished the process was late night.

04 - Origins
''Origins'' is song that I wrote last year. I was looking for some instrumental smooth rock type of song. In this tune we had the privilege of have an amazing Brazilian guitar player called Alex Martinho perfoming a very beautiful guitar part. Thanks Alex. You Rock man !

05 - Believe
Everybody I think had a moment in life when everything is not the best or had some troubles and the confidence goes down. I had this kind of problems too. And this song is about don't give up. Cause the life is greater than our problems. So we must carry on.

06 - Digital Fusion
''Digital Fusion'' is a song that I recorded just very quickly. I grab the guitar and play the most crazy solo I can improvise over this harmony. After I had recorded the solo and listened I just have no doubt that there's is a fusion cool kind of sound that I want to have in the album.

07 - Blue Sky
When I started to write ''Blue Sky'' was a beautiful lovely day in my city. Nice weather, a cool autumn breeze. And the sky was incredibly blue. So I took this nice harmony that I already have and started to record. Very cool day !

08 - Toupeira's Paradise
When I was a kid. I had this fun nickname which is ''Toupeira''. What means MOLE in english. I always liked this nickname cause sounds funny ! So when I'm playing my guitar is like i have been in a paradise. The ''Toupeira's Paradise''

09 - Whispering
Imagine that you are playing your guitar or whatever instrument you like in front of a beautiful and calm river surrounded by little birds and a warm wind. That's the inspiration for this song.

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!"
