JIMI HENDRIX Earns Highest-Charting Album In 44 Years

JIMI HENDRIX’ new archival album, People, Hell and Angels, has debuted at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 chart selling 72,000 copies. It marks Hendrix’ highest-charting album since 1968, when Electric Ladyland spent two weeks at No. 1.

All 12 tracks on People, Hell & Angels were recorded between 1968 and 1970 and were meant for First Days Of The New Rising Sun, the follow up to Electric Ladyland that Hendrix was working on when he passed away in 1970.

People, Hell & Angels features the following unearthed tracks:
‘Earth Blues’
‘Somewhere’
‘Hear My Train A Comin”
‘Bleeding Heart’
‘Let Me Move You’
‘Izabella’
‘Easy Blues’
‘Crash Landing’

DORO PESCH Interviewed On Brazil’s ‘Wikimetal’ (Audio)

Brazil’s Wikimetal podcast recently conducted an interview with German metal queen Doro Pesch. You can now listen to the chat using the SoundCloud player below.

Doro‘s latest album, “Raise Your Fist”, sold 585 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 65 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

In a recent interview with Lords Of Metal, Doro stated about her expectations for “Raise Your Fist”, Doro said, “I will be very happy when the fans say they love the record; that’s the most important for me. I really don’t keep up with numbers, which are, in my opinion, great to talk about afterwards. It’s nice if we will be able to make the charts again, but to me, those kind of things don’t really matter. Much more important is that the fans dig the songs in a live situation and, since we already played ‘Raise Your Fist’ several times live, the first signs are very positive.”
