DISC OF THE WEEK: Hockey Anthems – First Period Legends and Second Period Rookies

post-hockey

Hockey is in the mind-set of every Canadian. We claim that it’s ‘our game’ and the music played  in those games coast to coast and in hockey nations across the world gives fans as much energy and excitement as the game itself!

Two new  specially priced ‘Hockey Anthem’ packages contain the best of the tracks that have become rink and TV anthems with the best of the next generation of bands getting played in arena’s around North America and beyond.

1St Period: The Legends  features all the classic hockey songs that fans know and love including tracks from  Stompin’ Tom Connors – the Hockey Song (practically the second Canadian national anthem) , Rush – Spirit of Radio, Kiss, Nickelback, The Ramones and also included for the first time on CD Neil Peart of Rush’s interpretation of the classic Hockey Night in Canada theme as heard and seen on TSN as regular fixture in their NHL telecasts.

2nd Period: The Rookies features all the new songs from a stellar cast of current artists that includes Serena Ryder, Fall Out Boy, Monster Truck, City and Colour and more, all of which have taken off in the rinks over the past couple of years and have been heard on a regular basis on both CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada and other national telecasts. The Fratelli’s ‘Chelsea Dagger’ has become the automatic song played every time the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Black Hawks score goal. 2013/2014 is a giant hockey year with the NHL back in full swing with a record breaking 6 outdoor games being played, The World Juniors commencing Dec 26th and the Olympics in Sochi Russia in February.

Together these two new ‘Hockey Anthems’ compilations devoted to our national pastime will surely become perennial fan ‘must have’ titles and the soundtracks to all things hockey!
