The festival, which will begin on Thursday, September 18th, and end on Sunday, September 21st, will transform an empty lot in Brooklyn into a Heavy Metal mecca. Motorcycle enthusiasts, skateboarders, and art lovers alike will have the opportunity to come together in creating a legendary street-based event that will mark the last days of summer each year. The event, which will take place in a lot adjacent to NIHIL Gallery, becoming a micro-community, offering, food, a full bar, skate ramp, and nearly thirty musical acts for the brave of heart, featuring up to eight bands each day.

Headlining icons such as Weedeater, Orchid, The Shrine, Bloody Hammers, Black Cobra, Mothership, The Skull, and Bl’ast! are confirmed to perform. Metalheads and Hard Rock enthusiasts are encouraged to join in the first-ever Brooklyn-based festival. Once Uninvited, there is little reason to leave.

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Music, music news, rock guitarists, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 13, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Jeff Labar - One For The Road - Billboard Charts - promo flyer-2014

Jeff LaBar’s solo debut album, One For The Road, was released back on August 26th, via Rat Pak Records. This is one Hard Rock CD I picked up on its release date and I cannot get enough of it in my system! One For The Road demonstrates the vocal, musical and songwriting talents of Jeff LaBar; from heavy hitting songs as No Strings, Asking For A Beating, One For The Road and Nightmare On My Street to the mellow acoustic instrumentals of Muse and Ode To Page. Hello Or Goodbye is a mid-tempo track, one that is musically and lyrically one of my favorite of favorites on this terrific album. Whoa!

This debut from Jeff LaBar is chock-full of Hard Rock relevance and loaded with juicy slices of how admirable Classic Rock sounds when recorded in present day! The guitar tones of Jeff LaBar are clear as day and darn fun to absorb! Jeff LaBar plays all guitars and bass, with an all-star cast of guest drummers. Cinderella fans rejoice! Classic Rock, 80’s Arena and Hard Rock fans of any generation should dig what Jeff LaBar has created on his debut. I sure have!

I declare this Jeff LaBar debut as A MUST BUY! Jeff LaBar has done good… real good… so good that his debut album landed in the Billboard charts on September 4th! Metal be thy name! Here is the Rockin’ roll-call:

* #130 Billboard Top 200

* #1 Heatseekers

* #38 Top Rock Albums

* #21 Top Indie Releases

* #14 Top Hard Rock Albums

* #110 Top Current Releases

As posted on the STRYPER Facebook:

We started this band/ministry back in 1983 and our goal was to shine a bright light on a dark music world. We’ve had our share of trials and tribulations, ups and downs but miraculously (and by Gods grace), we’ve survived against many odds and are still shining that bright light where ever we can and however we can. Our faith has been questioned many times because of our unorthodox presentation but let us be “Loud N” Clear” – we are as determined, passionate and serious about our message and faith as ever before. We’re four guys writing, recording, performing and doing whatever we can do to get the word out but the reality is we need you to take it to new levels and reach even more people. Can we surpass what was accomplished three decades ago? Absolutely! Help us get the music and the message out to the masses. Share the pages, share the videos, share the music – preorder the new live album and order one for a friend, an old fan, a new fan, family, a neighbor, a co-worker, an employee or whoever else you can think of! This is a crucial time to spread God’s love through the power of music and we can’t do it without you. Thank you for 30+ years of support, God Bless ~ Stryper

FAITHSEDGE – “Saving Anything” Lyric Video Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 5, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Faithsedge - The Answer Of Insanity - promo cover pic

After their debut album, Faithsedge return with their new album The Answer Of Insanity, featuring singer/songwriter Giancarlo Floridia, former Dokken lead guitarist Alex De Rosso, drummer Tony Morra (Van Zant) and two of the best keyboard players in melodic rock, Eric Ragno (Trixter /Fergie Frederiksen) and Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline).

The Answer Of Insanity is simply a perfect mix of hard rock, heavy metal and progressive, with plenty of melodic old school hooks, concept songwriting and stripped-down edgy in-your-face production, to rebel back at current trends and fads in the music business.

Produced by Fabrizio Grossi (Steve Vai/Steve Lukather) and mastered by Peter Doell (David Lee Roth/Richard Marx) at Universal Mastering in Los Angeles, the album is now available worldwide.

______________________________

Stone Says: Yes, my Heavy Rock brethren, Giancarlo and his band Faithsedge have really delivered a Hard Rockin’ blow to my cranium with their new song Saving Anything and I’m better off for it! Faithsedge have returned… Metal be thy name!!
