RockTunz on RadioDimension Samplers

Whether it's the Pu Pu platter at your favorite Chinese or Hawaiian restaurant or a candy store's box of chocolates...samplers remain popular fare. And why not? People LOVE variety!
And it's no different in music. Labels put them out to promote a number of their artists and bands love to give their fans Best Ofs or Greatest Hits packages.
Well, since launching the RockTunz Show on RadioDimension, we've had tons of requests from listeners who wanted to hear the shows again as well as from those who missed the shows altogether. And...who are we to deny our fans??
So, here they are Chapter by Chapter...and commercial free!
As it is with all the other albums on RockTunz, you can listen to each of the 90-second clips separately or, hit the Play All and "stream" the entire album of samples. Likewise, you can buy any individual song or (better yet!), save a boatload of money and download the whole thing. We're big fans of freedom of choice so...'tis up to you!
Below are all the chapters that have aired thus far. (starting with the most recent)...with a listing of the bands, the featured songs and a brief explanation of the delights inside. You'll notice that a few of them have the same songs in common (those that were deemed the most popular by the listeners) but, any way you slice it...a host of delectable treats awaits! Just click on the album cover of the one you want to check out and you'll be taken right to it.
So, order in...relax and enjoy! You're sure to discover some new favorites!!

OK. They don't really scream but, they are all from Scandinavia (Sweden and Norway) and, if we do say so ourselves, is a killer collection of prog rock and prog metal. The shortest song is 6 1/2 minutes going all the up to an epic 17:09 and the last track features our friend and partner, Hansi Cross. You're in for a fun ride with this one!

Preview WindowChapter #3 - SPOTLIGHT ON THE LADIES! 

As far as we're concerned, there are just not enough women in prog so, it just made sense to air a show together featuring all female vocals and/or bandmates. To get a good sense of who they are, there's a double dose of all but one of the bands (hey...we only have one hour at a time!). We think you'll like the results, too!

  2. Clandestine - Comatose

  3. Spektrum - Chemical Release
