Crystal Ball:
Walk in Darkness

Walk in Darkness is a band that bills themselves as "Mysterious Italian Metalheads." The look is mysterious, but so is the sound. Shaman, the band's leader and guitarist, works with vocalist Nicoletta Rosellini to create that sound. Hmm...recognize that name? Nicoletta is also the voice behind Kalidia, who've landed here 5 times before. Be sure to check out the band at:

    Ad InfinitumRainover stays at #1 again, and Unleash the Archers has a leap of 3 to reach #13.

    ShihadAd Infinitum returns with a new offering this week, and some life advice. More notably, we welcome the return of a New Zealand band who started in the early days of Rock Rips, changed their name to Pacifier for awhile, and hasn't been on our charts since 2010! That's an 11 year absence. But no more. This week we welcome back Shihad, with their cover of a New Zealand classic, "I Got You," originally by Split Enz - members of which who became Crowded House.

    The Holderness FamilyThe corona virus has enveloped the world and we are certainly in a very different time - of pandemic, social distancing, racial inequity, and job loss. That's why we keep adding to our Pandemic Playlist, with many entries from the Holderness Family to keep us laughing: Pandemic Playlist."

    Top 50 of 2019 is here!

    DelainThe Top 50 of 2019 is topped by a Dutch band who's had 18 hits on Rock Rips, including 8 #1s since 2009. And #2 is from a Canadian band new to the Rips!
