Television and movie star David Hasselhoff returns with his first full-length music album in over two decades. The new release titled "Open Your Eyes" features thirteen cover songs sung by "The Hoff" with some very special guests like Todd Rundgren, Charlie Daniels and Steve Stevens. The set begins with his resurrection of The Lords of the New Church song "Open Your Eyes," which feels as relevant today as when it was originally recorded and released back in 1982. Hasselhoff's voice still sounds strong and smooth, as displayed in David Bowie's "Heroes" (which is sung half in English and half in German) and on the classic country hit "Rhinestone Cowboy," which also features a guest appearance from Charlie Daniels. Tracii Guns lends a hand on guitar to electrify the Whitesnake hit "Here I Go Again." It's great hearing "The Hoff" have fun singing The Archie's' classic "Sugar, Sugar," while his version of "Sweet Caroline" feel like a goth/pop single with the help of Ministry. David Hasselhoff then finishes off the album with the perfect "good-bye" song, "That's Life." Hasselhoff will be performing all over Germany during the month of October.

Legendary rockers Angel have also returned with their first album of new material in over a decade. The band started out in the mid-seventies, after being discovered by Kiss' Gene Simmons and developed a cult following before parting ways in 1981. Then in 1998, the band reformed to release the album "In The Beginning," which gave the band a renewed interest on the touring circuit. Their new album titled "Risen," is the first to feature founding members Frank DiMino and Punky Meadows, since their first run in the seventies.
