Metallica is back with their twelfth studio album called 72 Seasons. The album consumes 77 minutes with 12 tracks and is produced by Greg Fidelman in collaboration with guitarist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich.

“Xanadu,” the opening track, starts with a bang. The song brings the trio’s talents together in a joyous sound of a catchy [...]
Tommy DeCarlo is a new name to me on the rock scene. DeCarlo is currently the lead singer of Boston and DECARLO. DeCarlo is releasing his debut album as a solo artist on Frontiers Music Srl called Dancing In The Moonlight. I enjoy hearing Boston on my classic rock playlist and the radio, but I have not kept up with the band’s current material. So DeCarlo’s vocal chops are new to me but are ideally suited for the classic AOR of the ’70s and into the ’80s.
