For over four decades, Blue öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY--based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it's one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success. Upon the release of BöC's self--titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy--yet--heavy music and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous, often all in the same song. BöC's canon includes three stone-cold classic songs: The truly haunting "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" from 1976's Agents of Fortune, the pummeling "Godzilla" from 1977's Spectres and the hypnotically melodic "Burnin' for You" from 1981's Fire of Unknown Origin.

The Revel
New Jersey brothers, Dillon and Dean D’Antuono live for rock ‘n roll.

Bound to the electric guitar, Dillon and Dean have been dedicated to joining the ranks of those who came before them, and that spirit is expressed in their new EP, The Revel.

With Dean’s voice soaring over the energetic drum, bass and guitars, the message they deliver is loud and clear: Rock ‘n Roll is very much alive.

Raised on classic rock but influenced by the generation they come from, the brothers are quickly gaining a reputation for their musical chops, and their live performance. The D’Antuono brothers are fixated on the future of their band, writing more songs and touring.

The Revel EP, released on June 10th, includes stand out tracks like ‘Come Alive,’ ‘Stuck on You’ and ‘Taking me Down’ and was produced by Jimmy Gnecco (Ours) who also co-wrote and recorded the collection. Legendary record maker Jason Corsaro, and Brett Romnes were also involved. Last up, James Monte mixer and Howie Weinberg did mastering.
