Yep, here we are once again at the end of 2017 for the annual music awards of Heavy Paradise, The Paradise Of Melodic Rock. Musically speaking, this year was, again, another great year with many and great releases. The decision of the final Top 20 list was, for another year,  hard to take. But finally the lists are ready, the decisions have been taken and below you can read the Top Heavy Paradise's Lists of 2017. 

At this point, as always, I have to give my credits, first of all, to each and one of you that support, in any possible way, this web-zine through the years. So, my huge thank you goes to the readers of H.P. (FB, Twitter e.t.c.), to the bands/musicians, labels, promoters and the list goes on and on. Thank you!!! 

So, here we go...................................


#1. (ONE DESIRE, ONE DESIRE) And the 'oscar' for the best album of 2017 goes to ONE DESIRE!! Yes this amazing release blew my mind at once and was in a regular (daily) basis in my cd player. Superb songs, amazing performances and in general an album that will be a future classic in my book. 

#2. (ECLIPSE, MONUMENTUM) It wouldn't be a top list without these Swedes! "Monumentum" is just a killer release from Eclipse. Killer songs in it, a tight as hell musicianship and everything here is PERFECT!!! 

3#. (ART NATION, LIBERATIONArt Nation with "Liberation" delivers an ultra-catchy, impressive, powerful and extremely melodic album!!! "Liberation" is a melodic rock piece of an art that can't be missed by any fan of bands such as Eclipse, H.E.A.T. and Dynazty!!!! 

#4. (SANTA CRUZ, BAD BLOOD RISING). "....this new album by Santa Cruz really smokes!! Bigger hooks, catchier choruses, heavy guitars and tons of attitude are all here to make your blood pumpin' and your head banging for days!!!! PURE FUCKIN' ADRENALINE!!!!! "

#5. (PINK CREAM 69, HEADSTRONG). Pink Cream 69 is back with just a killer album all the way! "Headstrong" is just the album that every die-hard fan of Pink Cream 69 asked for; power, melody, attitude, great arrangements, superb guitars, soulful performances and a tight as hell musicianship! Top release!!!

REVIEW : Ammunition --- Ammunition (Frontiers Music s.r.l. RELEASE DATE :26 January 2018)

A couple of years back, the amazing band of AMMUNITION made its appearance and made an impact in the melodic hard rock scene. Leaded by WIG WAM's shouter Age Sten Nilsen, ECLIPSE's mastermind Erik MĂ„rtensson, bassist Victor Cito Borge, Lasse FinbrĂ„ten (Circus Maximus, ex-Wig Wam), Magnus Ulfstedt (Eclipse), and the exceptional guitar player Jon Pettersen, Ammunition has made a name for themselves as an incredible live act.

SMASH INTO PIECES : Multiple award-winning, Swedish electro/rock-export are back with a new single.

As one of one of Scandinavias most intriguing, mystical and explosive live acts - SMASH INTO PIECES with it´s founder and leader ”The Apocalypse DJ” has caught the attention of the crowd live as well as on social medias. Executing Skydives in live-television, showing of The Apocalypse Djs Parkour moves / Dance-skills or Fighting capability seems likely to be a normal day at the SIP office.

REVIEW : Kickin Valentina --- Imaginary Creatures (2017)

Kickin Valentina plays energetic, up-lifting and in-your-face rock 'n' roll and "Imaginary Creatures" is entitled their newest effort. The well-known producer/engineer Andy Reilly (Bruce Dickinson, UFO, Asia, The Quireboys) helped them, once again, with "Imaginary Creatures" and the sure thing is that the result will please each and one of you that loves rock 'n' roll with tons of attitude.

REVIEW : Blood Red Saints -- Love Hate Conspiracies (26 January 2018, AOR Heaven)

Back in 2015 Blood Red Saints released their debut album, "Speedway", that left me hungry for more. A damn well-played, well-crafted and solid slice of pure melodic hard rock bliss. For sure one of the best debuts of that day that is still in a regular basis in my cd player.
