Expect the latest D’Ercole album Quantum 8 on March 23, 2022. Album 8 (duh) from the band continues seamlessly where the well-received previous release Hard Core left us. So 10 more songs of hard melodic rock and maybe a surprise here and there. Fans of the band or the artists involved can buy this blind as it meets all expected standards. Again mastered by Jacob Hansen, and lead guitars provided by trusted friends Vince O’Regan and label boss Peter Cox on Your Lies, D’Ercole never lose momentum and keep delivering exciting rock music for their fans!
I was obviously angry when I wrote the message below. After some consideration I opt for another solution. There will be no more shipping without tracking. So I will once again add PayPal as a paying solution. But Due to all of these lessons learned I have to raise the pricing of the releases. Guess in these times it was a bit mad anyway to keep them the same for so long….
Due to a customer refusing to respect his choice for our terms and conditions (chosing a shipping with no tracking and shipping at his risk) and PayPal also not willing to rule in accordance to our terms, we have had to decide to quit using PayPal. This because we want to continue to give you the option of a cheaper shipping method, on the strict condition that the risk is on YOU.
Our advice is and always will be that if postal service in your region is not on par, please choose for a shipping option with tracking!
Should you not be able to find a payment solution that works for you, please shoot us an email and we will work something out.

After 30+ years and the amazing reception of their 2018 Different album, the rejuvenated band did not need 9 years this time… No, Chinawhite have wasted little time and deliver another set of crunching rock tracks. From the powerful riffs of opener No Perfect World, to the emotional Somehow, or to the instrumental prowess in tracks like the instrumental Evolution (?) or Found, the band are in top form and manage to avoid an all too formulaic sounding album. This is as fresh and exciting as rock still can be!
2021 Line Up:
Peter Cox – keyboards and guitars, additional voices
Sander Stappers – bass
Phil Vincent – lead and harmony vocals
Bart Fleuren – drums
Recorded at Down The Road studio, except vocals at The Musik Room (USA).
Mixed and Mastered by Peter Cox. Artwork by Blekkmark.
Or on any other major platform!
“Ultima Ratio” continues seamlessly where the highly successful previous album Faith Healer (2020) left off. Driving hard rock tracks, filled to the brim with class melodies, powerful riffs and shredding solos.

Assisted on lead guitars by Vince O’Regan and William Roux, “Ultima Ratio” will please every serious fan.
A CD version can be found with many shops, including at our webshop.

Earthshine have announced their eight’ release: Bridge To Infinity. Coming September 29, the soothing instrumental electronic music project will start its journey. As Peter says:
“A lot of music was written in the past 2 years. But it wasn’t until a theme stuck in my mind, that I was able to find the right moods for the eight’ album under the Earthshine moniker. So I ditched a number of tracks and, based on the new found direction, set out to write the songs presented here. As usual the music is purely electronic. Name it what you want, but for me it is almost therapeutic to do, so I hope it works for you too. This is an imaginary trip, leaving earth, crossing our solar system and then travel into the great unknown…
Enjoy the flight”
Preceeding the 9 track album is a video for Into The Unknown:
