HELLGATE – Hard Rock / Metal Trio Release Debut S/T EP

Posted in metal music, Music, music news, music reviews, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on June 20, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Helgate - promo cover pic - ep - 2014

Stone Notes: This is HELLGATE. They have earned a ton of support out in the Northwest and in their home base of Montana; and are now looking to brand themselves nationwide. HELLGATE’s debut S/T EP is available for free or name your price on their Bandcamp page (see below).

HELLGATE’s talent and credibility do all the talking on this bragworthy EP, with an impressive mix of many Heavy Rock genres that flows into one original sound. Joel Floyd West has vocals that you’ll remember, cause he’s not trying to sound like someone else. This is a standout underground band and debut EP that I’m giving you all a Metal heads-up on. I’m very pleased, to have this opportunity to feature HELLGATE on Metal Odyssey for the first time. Don’t miss out on HELLGATE. Metal be thy name.

HELLGATE HAPPENINGS:

HELLGATE – Since the bands’ formation in March of 2014, HELLGATE has accomplished a great deal, including an appearance on NBC-TV as well as write ups in a number of local and regional papers including The Lively Times and The Independent.

HELLGATE has already received some national radio airplay and has created a strong web presence in such a very short time as well.

Now, with the release of their Self-Titled Debut EP, the band is ready to go national. The KillHate Tour kicks off July 3rd, and will take the band through MT, WA, OR, CA, and NV. Proceeds from this tour will be donated to NPAP against police brutality.

Haunting grooves, aggressive hooks, and seductive textures describe the organic yet formulaic delivery that HELLGATE has to offer on this 6 song, 24 minute release.

Swimming In Fire – Featuring: Greg Hampton, Danny Saber, Eric Dover & Chris Collier

Posted in alternative metal, alternative rock, experimental music, experimental rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on August 5, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

SWIMMING IN FIRE – The dynamically Rockin’ duo of Greg Hampton (Alice Cooper, 9 Chambers, Lita Ford, The New Czars) and Danny Saber (U2, Ozzy Osbourne, Korn, Marilyn Manson) have founded and are currently collaborating/producing a new project they’ve called: Swimming In Fire.

With Eric Dover (Slash’s Snakepit, Alice Cooper) and Chris Collier joining on, Swimming In Fire is a potent supergroup of seasoned songwriters and multi-instrumentalists to keep your ears and eyes on today and tomorrow!

Two words to know: Alternative. Experimental. Yes, Swimming In Fire are playing cutting-edge music and it’s still radiating some hard and heavy persona that Heavy Metal and Hard Rock diehards scream for. Expect the electronic gates of sound to open up and introduce you to what Greg Hampton and Danny Saber have created here with their project.

Incorporating driving guitars and melodic vocals into their songs is only just the beginning, with this creative band. There’s plenty of Alternative and Experimental nuances happening musically; this all makes the music from Swimming In Fire a true Rock ‘N Roll delicacy in the making.

I’m looking forward to hearing the eventual debut album from Swimming In Fire, these guys are onto capturing a sound that is both highly relevant and contagious. Metal be thy name.

Take a listen to three songs that are already streaming on Swimming In Fire’s facebook and Reverbnation sites, by clicking on the links below!
