Sons of Albion: A new band to watch out for is Sons of Albion who hail from Britain. The two songs I heard from them are just excellent and I’m looking forward to more. If you’re attending SXSW, you can check them out on March 21 at Latitude as part of their official showcase. The band will also be doing some other club shows in the area as well as NYC during March.

Their first single “Take a Look” is now available for free download from their MySpace:

Band members are vocalist Logan Plant, guitarist Nuno Miguel, bassist Gones, & drummer Francisco De Sousa. And yes, that would be the son of Led Zeppelin icon Robert Plant.

Michael Schenker: The enigmatic guitar god’s first DVD Worldwide Live 2004will be released on March 24 in the US on Metal Mind Records. This live DVD contains a show from Metalmania Festival 2004. Also included is a band bio, discography, 25-minute interview, photo gallery, desktop images, and web links all in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. As a bonus, there will also be a companion CD with tracks from the live show.
