Black Sabbath/Heaven and Hell Guitarist posted the following on his blog this evening:
I have been so busy working on the new album!!! It’s all going very well I’m pleased to say!
We are hoping for the album to be released some time in March/April.
Just to let everyone know I appreciate all your messages, comments and all your support.
Since opening their doors on July 4th, 2008, Eonian Records has become synonymous with some of the highest quality hard rock and metal music in the world. Busy building on its new found reputation; Eonian Records has recently become the home of several musical icons of Chicago’s legendary music club The Thirsty Whale, including Dear Diary, Gynger Lynn, Pistol Dawn, Sgt. Roxx, Sweet Sybil, and UZI.
Eonian Records has also signed Southern California Guitar Hero Ronny North. Ronny endorses his own signature line through Tregan Guitars and was named Best Male Guitarist Award at the 2006 All Access Magazine Music Awards. Ronny North’s “Then & Now” release will feature several never released tracks from his earlier days on the Sunset Strip: Kidd Comet and Forever Young, and a few big name guest players such as Rikki Rocket, Eric Singer, and CC Deville to name a few.
One of Eonian Records most noteworthy signings comes from the Seattle metal scene, Dr. Grind. In the heart of the grunge movement storms a combination of power resembling Queensryche and the melodic metal behind Dokken. Dr. Grind’s “Speechless” release is a striking collection of the charismatic hook-line-and-sinker choruses, blinding twin guitar melodies, and solid walls of anthemic five-part vocal harmonies.
Emerging from the Columbus, Ohio rock scene to become one of the most popular and critically acclaimed bands was the Christian metal group Legacy. Touring with the likes of Sacred Warrior and REZ, Legacy pounded the Midwest club circuit delivering their slick, polished, L.A. metal, featuring dual guitar wizardry of Fred Blanchard and Matt Rice.
Named one of the top bands and one of the very best live acts to come out of the Tri-state area is Strike Twice. This five-piece shows its influences on its debut release with its mixture of Motley Crue, AC/DC, and Skid Row; while delivering a straight-forward, unapologetic, slab of metal. Strike Twice promises to deliver one of the best and most fulfilling Hard Rock releases of 2009!
However, the great signings do not end there. Eonian Records has also become the home of Bad Attitude, Charlemagne, High Noon, and Shake City, all of whom played throughout Southern California in the late 80’s and early 90’s with a majority of those shows on the infamous Sunset Strip in Hollywood, California. Gazzarri’s, The Whiskey, The Rainbow, The Roxy, and The Troubadour all played host to these four bands at one time or another.

Finally, hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana, comes three flamboyant, photogenic bands with killer hooks in Felony, Snakeskin Cowboy, and Wanted, all who has packed clubs all over the Midwest with Record Executives in the house nearly every night.
Eonian Record’s releases will be available at www.eonianrecords.com through secure online shopping and will be mailed nearly worldwide. However, if you would like to see an Eonian artist in your local music shop, this can also be possible.

Last Week, VH1 ran their top 100 Hard Rock Songs of all time. They had a Dokken video in the top 100, although I don’t recall which one. I had to go looking to see what other videos were out there. I couldn’t get over George Lynch’s hair in these old videos.
Dokken’s “Breaking The Chains” Video is from
