The Jewish Music Group (JMG) is planning to release the very best unsigned rock and metal bands from Israel this summer on one compilation CD called "Israel Unleashed: The Best Rock And Metal From The Holy Land". This project is being produced by JMG's Dean Schachtel, a long-time rock and heavy metal fan.
While Schachtel was at Rhino Records, he co-produced the very successful "Stand Up And Shout: The Dio Anthology" along with Ronnie James Dio, Wendy Dio and David McLees. The CD features the very best from the Dio era of ELF, RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH and of course, all the very best Dio solo tracks!
Here are the bands that will be a part of this ground-breaking CD "Israel Unleashed":
"Offer" - NOBLE BRATS
"Attractive" - EATLIZ
"Redemption" - DISTORTED
"The Coming Of Soon" - ABED
"King Of The Road" - ZOOVINGROOVE
"Abandoned" - MENS REA
"Sour Days" - BEHIND THE SUN
"The Days" - JET SAM
"Easy Does It" - VULTURES
"Selfish" - SEVEN PERCENT MIND USAGE
"Desolated Spirits" - XENOLITH
"Heartbreaker" - CROSSFIRE
"Israel Unleashed" will be out this summer from the Jewish Music Group!
This is something totally different for JMG as for the past two years, they have been releasing CDs with both Jewish and religious content only. This past year, JMG's THE KLEZMATICS won a Grammy Award for "Best Contemporary World Music Album."
Schachtel said, "These bands from Israel are amazing! I hope that this CD brings the great music from Israel to the millions of metal and rock fans all over the world. I know the music fans will love it!"
