Long Island, New York: “Ball and Chain” – a pilot track from Pink Velvet Krush, the new band comprised of guitarist Sean Quidgeon (ex Dust N’ Bones), guitarist Greg Polcari (ex Britny Fox, Steelheart), drummer Ryche Green (ex Bulletboys), bassist Steve Rivera (ex Surrender), and vocalist Doug ‘Savage’ Ramey (ex Vaudeville), is now streaming online via their Reverb Nation.

The track is also available for a FREE download from Reverb Nation just for joining the Pink Velvet Krush mailing list.

Pink Velvet Krush also signed with HighVolMusic to a multi-release deal starting with their debut E.P. due this fall.

The band returned from a weekend warrior run of successful shows. “We’ve written about 15 songs and wanted to test the product, see how the set went over in front of people. These shows were a great way to accomplish that. It was also a great way to work out any kinks for the upcoming all original Danger Danger show this Saturday August 30th at Revolution in Amityville, NY. The label still has few tickets left for anyone that may need one.” says bassist Steve Rivera.

Pink Velvet Krush will enter Tropic Digital Studios on Tuesday the 26th to begin recording their debut E.P.

PVK has launched their official website at www.pvkrush.com. More information to follow.

Stone Says: If Ball and Chain is a taste of what’s to come from the debut E.P. from Pink Velvet Krush, then I am one Hard Rock lovin’, psyched-out son-of-a-bitch! Metal be thy name.

ICED EARTH – Jon Schaffer’s Update On His Improving Health

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on August 24, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Iced Earth - large classic logo - #5

As written/told by the legendary Jon Schaffer and posted on the ICED EARTH Facebook:

“Hello brothers and sisters,

I’m writing to let you know that I’m healing very well. I played guitar a few weeks ago for the first time, and it immediately felt like the surgery worked. Needless to say, I was very relieved. Through many months of the Worldwide Plagues Tour I was suffering from a loss of coordination in my hands, numbness, and intense levels of pain. It was a battle every night onstage and it reached a critical point where the cervical fusion had to happen, sooner rather than later. I am happy to report that so far things are going very well in my recovery, and I expect it to stay on this path. We are in the planning stages of our next US tour, and that will very likely take place this winter. So, before you know it we’ll be back on the warpath, and before long, songwriting will commence, and another chapter of Iced Earth history will be in the making. There will be lots of updates in the coming months. We are forging the attack as I am recovering from surgery. The boys and I are ready to get back out there ASAP to lay down the metal!

Thanks so much for your concern and support!”

Century Media Records Founder Launches New Label: Another Century

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on August 21, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Another Century - record label logo - 2014

From Century Media Records:

Century Media Records founder, Robert Kampf, has announced the formation of a new record label, Another Century. The label will focus on hard rock and has already signed 3 bands to the roster: Los Angeles rock veterans, Rev Theory, New Zealand’s rising stars, Like A Storm, and Chicago based, The Bloodline. Kampf comments:

Twenty five years after starting Century Media the excitement to do another version of the label could not be any larger. My undying love for rock has driven the formation of this label ANOTHER CENTURY. Over the years great bands like Otherwise and In This Moment have been released on Century Media but sometimes got lost or felt ill mixed among some of the heavier CM bands. Another Century now has a clear path and mission statement: To develop and break the best bands in rock to come!!!

Otherwise is gearing up to release their sophomore album, Peace At All Costs, on September 16 and currently is having massive success with their single, Darker Side of the Moon, http://youtu.be/CHh9YSwZR0U, which is currently #29 on the US Active Rock charts. The album was produced by David Bottrill (Tool, Muse) and mixed by Jay Ruston (Steel Panther). The band is set to hit the road with Like A Storm next month and will be appearing at Sacramento’s Aftershock festival as well as Louisville’s Louder Than Life fest.

Rev Theory, formed in 2002, have sold over half a million albums and are currently wrapping up the recording for their next album. The first single, Born 2 Destroy, is making its way to radio soon. A teaser for the song as well as the single’s artwork can be seen here:

New Zealand’s Like A Storm are the rock world’s 2014 Cinderella story. The band self-released the EP, Chaos Theory: Part I and made their way over to the States touring with the likes of Sick Puppies, Shinedown, Alter Bridge and Creed as well as hit several festivals. The band sent their single, Love The Way You Hate Me, http://youtu.be/4im52LBhWnM to radio and personally called stations to play the track. The song became a hit, soaring up the charts, where it currently is sitting at number 22, making them the US’s highest charting rock band ever from New Zealand. The band will have a new full length out on Another Century on October 28th and are currently on tour now, meeting up with Otherwise next month.

The Bloodline was formed by Shaun Glass (Soil) and feature vocalist Travis Neal (Divine Heresy), guitarist Chuck Wepfer and Frankie Harchut on drums. The Bloodline is currently in the studio recording their debut album and deliver a huge fresh sound in Rock/Metal with massive hooks, soaring melodies and pummeling grooves that will ignite any listeners ears.

4 simple & silly reasons why I am an “old school” Metalhead.

Posted in Alice cooper, Century Media, Drums, Gene Simmons, Guitar, Heavy Metal, Heavy Metal Reviews, Metal, metal concerts, Metal Edge, Metallica, Music, ozzy, Paul Stanley, rockabilia, tattoos, Uncategorized, Vocals with tags , on March 17, 2009 by Metal Odyssey

8214121This is rather silly at best, although there is much proof out there as to why older Metalheads  are called “old school”. These 4 reasons for being an old school Metalhead came to my mind, I just had to jot them down for the whole world to read. I am guilty of all 4 too. 

1. Lately, when the ages of Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Halford or Alice Cooper (or any Metal superstar of that generation) are brought up in conversation, I am so quick to quip; “oh, they look great, that’s not a bad age man, that’s young man, that’s young.”

2. I remember being psyched, watching Blue Oyster Cult appear on The Merv Griffin Show, playing “Burning For You” and promoting their “Fire of Unknown Origin” album. After that show aired, I forever thought of Merv Griffin as a really cool dude.

3. I find myself always stopping to “leaf” through the Pop Culture posters at the major retail stores, thinking I will find a Kiss, Judas Priest or Charlie’s Angels poster. I then realize what I am doing and proceed to walk away.

4. I am still very proud that I belonged to the Kiss Army.

Granted, there are millions of reasons to be labeled an old school Metalhead, it’s the funny reasons that really get to me.
