    PICTURE „Live - 40 Years Heavy Metal Ears - 1978-2018" - Cover, Tracklist, Release Date: 26th October 2018

    The release date of the of the Album „Live - 40 Years Heavy Metal Ears - 1978-2018“ by the Hard Rock Band PICTURE from The Netherlands on CD is October 26th, 2018. The pre-order phase will start on October 12th, 2018 in our webshop.

    One of the first and most unique Heavy Metal bands in the Netherlands has been active again for more than a decade: PICTURE. For the 40th anniversary of the band a fantastic live album called 'PICTURE LIVE: 40 Years Heavy Metal Ears, 1978-2018' will be released through Pure Steel Records.

    On the eponymous tour 17 songs were recorded, of course including many classics. These were played on the stages of Europe by the four original members we have known since their debut in 1980: Ronald van Prooijen, Jan Bechtum, Rinus Vreugdenhil and Laurens Bakker, as well as today's second guitarist Appie de Gelder. Not many bands, especially those from the 1970s, can still perform their songs in the original line-up in 2018. PICTURE celebrate this event in their best form and devote themselves mainly to the songs of the first three band works.

    Meanwhile, the gentlemen have entrenched themselves in a studio and actually announced a brand new album for 2019. Until then, we must continually devote ourselves to this never-ending classic: 'PICTURE LIVE: 40 Years Heavy Metal Ears, 1978-2018'. A photo is usually only considered, PICTURE you can hear and feel.

    PICTURE „Warhorse" - LIMITED DOUBLE VINYL EDITION - Cover, Tracklist, releasedate: 14th December 2018

    The release date of the PICTURE album „Warhorse“ on limited Doublevinyl edition is December 14th, 2018. The pre-order phase will start on November 30th, 2018 in our webshop. The Album will release in a limited Edition of 300 black copies, 1 Bonustrack and insert.
    The ninth and so far last studio album from 2012 of the Dutch heroes PICTURE is currently being made available on classic vinyl. The only minor flaw on this work is the absence of original singer Ronald van Prooijen, who has returned to the band recently. Of course Pete Lovell, who sang in PICTURE in the mid-1980s and for a decade from 2007 to 2017, did a good job on 'Warhorse' too. And Pete Lovell has a damn powerful voice, that fits as well in European Hard Rock and NWoBHM and is even convincing every American Hard Rocker. Friends of PICTURE should take their chance now, but also fans from SAXON to DEMON will be satisfied when listening to stylish and powerful heavy metal like this one.
