Swedish guitar player Peter H Nilsson has been in the musical business for many years in different bands in and extensive touring in his home country. In 2016 Nilsson started to work in his studio tracking new ideas for an album and in June 2017 all songs were done.


Nilsson was at the same time looking for a singer and found what he was looking for via the world’s leading music production marketplace Soundbetter: Chris Biano from Nashville, Tennessee and started to discuss
the possibility to work together and finally, in July 2017 the first song was tracked.

At the end of 2017 the majority of all songs were ready but the guitar player felt that the tracks needed something extra. He then started to look for a drummer on Soundbetter and soon found session drummer Jason Meekins from Austin, Texas who was recruited for the album in January 2018. long-time friend and bass player Patrik Adiels from Gothenburg joined for the album in early 2018.

Thomas “Plec” Johansson started to mix the record, which is called “Little American Dream”, in September 2018 at his Panic Room Studios in Skövde, Sweden where the record also was mastered.

British band ‘Trishula’ is the brain child of UK Guitarist Neil Fraser and was born out of Neil’s work on his first solo project which started in 2015. In the mid eighties Neil played in a number of local rock bands from the Staffordshire area of England, and achievements during this time included gaining airplay on Radio Luxembourg with a track called ‘Poltergeist’, along with securing support slots with bands such as eighties glam rock band ‘Wrathchild’ who were gaining lots of attention at the time. Since the late nineties Neil has played, toured and/or recorded with bands and artists such as TEN, Rage of Angels, Tony Mills (TNT, SHY). During his time with the band Rage of Angels, Neil had worked alongside Welsh vocalist Jason Morgan and Portuguese drummer Joao Colaco, so when forming ‘Trishula’, Jason and Joao were Neil’s first choice to complete the lineup for recording the album.

The bands debut album ‘Scared To Breathe’ was initially recorded in Neil’s home studio (Farmyard Studios), demo vocals were recorded in various locations in Wales, with final vocal recordings being captured at M2 Madhat Studios (Magnum) under the watchful eye of Sheena Sear, additional keyboards were also added at M2 Studios by Magnum Keyboard player Rick Benton, drums were recorded in Black Sheep Studios in Portugal, with final mixing and mastering was also being undertaken by Sheena Sear and Mark Stuart at M2 Studios.

2019 brings the release of the third album by British rockers Blood Red Saints.

The album, released through AOR Heaven is entitled 'Pulse' on February 22nd, 2019 and sees the band modernising their sound whilst still retaining the big choruses.Guitarist Lee Revill is the man tasked with mixing and engineering the album as well as co-producing alongside Pete Godfrey.

“Pulse” features 11 tracks all written by Revill/Godfrey and the album has a more contemporary edge, trying to push the boundaries of Melodic Rock. Songs such as “Cross to bear” and “Crash into me”, edge into radio friendly territory whilst “I'm your Devil” has a more raw punky feel. The title track “Pulse” is all about the chant and should be a great live number, “Animals” and “Message to God” being full on rockers.

The band says: “This album is more personal, dealing with life events of the past year but still maintaining a positive stance, everybody brought their best to this recording, no compromises, no excuses, simply the best 11 songs we could write and we are proud of the results, after all, without music and fun, what is there?”

VELVET INSANE from northern Sweden is centered around guitarist Jesper Lindgren and singer Jonas Eriksson. It was founded out of the ashes of Jesper Lindgrens short-lived band PURE FAITH back in 2013. He brought his new friend Jonas Eriksson to the band and they started to rehearse. After the first gig Jesper discovered that Jonas could not only play drums very well, but he is a hell of a singer with a charismatic voice.

Words of the band quickly spread among Swedish rock fans and they started recording some demos to see if they could capture the electric energy that bonded the band together on stage. 2014 began with a tour in the north of Sweden and high-profile gigs in Falun and Stockholm. More songs were written, more demos were recorded and in April they went into ESTA studios in Stockholm and recorded their first EP, which was released in May 2014. After some lineup changes, they recruited two new members in the summer of 2014 to the band, Tobias Reimbertsson (drums) and Niklas Henriksson (bass).

With a new lineup and a new lease of life, they went down to Stockholm again and recorded their official debut EP "Youth on Fire" which was released worldwide on October 25th, 2014. The release of the EP sparked an enormous interest in the band as fans, promoters and record companies worldwide caught wind of what they were doing from their Swedish base and they finished 2014 with their eyes firmly on the year ahead. An upcoming tour in Australia was about to be made and the dreams about making and playing music started to get real. So they started touring in Japan and UK followed by tours that took them to Spain and the United States.

After nearly four years rocking together, Niklas and Tobias decided to quit the band and when that happened, Jesper and Jonas took some new steps into a new era when they decided to continue as a duo. A new era with their self-titled album VELVET INSANE in their hands, ready to rock the world and to get the awareness they deserve. Because their high octane driven Hard Rock, influenced by classic rock bands like MOTT THE HOOPLE, HUMPLE PIE, T.REX or THE HELLACOPTERS is a perfect example for a fresh sounding new breed of musicians!
