Pretty Maids are back!

If you grew up and were a "hard rocker" in the 80s, you obviously know Danish PRETTY MAIDS. In 1984, the band released their first full-length, "Red, Hot & Heavy" and who doesn't remember the title song and the opening "Back to Back" and others. A pure masterpiece! The debut was followed up by "Future World" in 1987, which sold over 300,000 copies. After the third full-length "Jump the Gun" (1990) the band split up, leaving only guitarist Ken Hammer and vocalist Ron Atkins at the helm. With a new drummer and bassist, the formidable record "Sin-Decade" was released in 1992, which featured the hit "Please Don't Leave", a cover of a Sykes/Lynott song. The band has continued to release great albums and the latest "Undress Your Madness" (2019) is no exception.
Late in 2019, lead singer Ron Atkins was diagnosed with cancer and the planned shows in early 2020 were cancelled. But by the summer of 2024, Pretty Maids are back, and doing selected gigs. The only one in southern Sweden will be at Time To Rock and we are very proud of that. One of the very best hard rock bands in Scandinavia ever are back!

The Anti-Queens cancel. Scarlet steps in! Scarlet is the name of the alternative metal duo that stirred this year's Melodifestivalen ( Sweden's qualification contest for Eurovision) pot together with Smash Into Pieces. Scarlet made it as far as the finals with "Circus X", which shows that their theatrical rock went home in the cottages. The two anonymous front figures call themselves Scarlet Hunts and Thirsty and are made up like skeletons and vampires respectively. Scarlet was started in 2018 and with only a couple of singles on Spotify, they were on Sweden's big festival stages in 2019, including the Sweden Rock Festival. That gig made Scarlet a...

THE RODS TO REPLACE METAL CHURCH American, classic metal from the 80s, fronted by singer and guitarist David Feinstein - The Rods! Between 1967 and 1973, David Feinstein was in the band Elf with his cousin, Ronnie James Dio. David managed to quit the band before Elf became classic Rainbow and around 1980 he formed and drummer Carl Canedy THE RODS, which was a much harder band than the two previously mentioned. One can find similarities with both Saxon and Manowar. The band had a hiatus between 1986 and 2010, but has since the reunion been all the time active. In addition to David and Carl, the...
