MOTION DEVICE And Their Cover Song Of Black Sabbath’s “Heaven And Hell”: Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Motion Device - promo band pic - #11 - 2013

MOTION DEVICE – I was first introduced to Bolton, Ontario, Canada’s Motion Device via twitter earlier this year. We’ll tweet back and forth, like any twitter friends do; only I consider Motion Device more than just twitter buddies. I look upon Motion Device as an inspiration and a burning flame of sincerity, maturity and confidence that I cannot resist embracing from such a devoted and talented young band. The allegiance to Heavy Metal’s pioneers that Motion Device is influenced by, through their songs, makes me very proud.

Lead vocalist Sara Menoudakis is going on 12 years of age and she sings with such a determined and confident manner; that it’s all very impressive to hear. Amazing. Sara’s 15-year-old sister (6 string bassist & keyboardist) Andrea Menoudakis is nothing short of inspirational in her own right; Andrea lives each day of her life with a seizure disorder known as epilepsy, (in the form of absence seizures). Andrea’s musical talents would never reveal this, until it was made known by her and the band. I absolutely love the piano intro and outro that Andrea plays on their cover of Heaven And Hell; it’s a beautiful added touch to such an iconic song.

Motion Device is rounded out by Sara and Andrea’s 13-year-old brother (drummer) David Menoudakis, 19-year-old cousin (electric & acoustic guitarist) Josh Marrocco and 19-year-old family friend (guitarist & bassist) Alex Defrancesco. I honestly see an incredible future for these young and clever musicians. The Metal sky is the limit for Motion Device and I will be cheering heavily for them, as they continue forward on their musical journey. Metal be thy name.

Motion Device, along with their new cover song of Black Sabbath’s Heaven And Hell is:

Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Great Metal Albums of 1980: Black Sabbath- Heaven And Hell

Since the 1980s was the golden age of heavy metal and that golden age began with 1980, I thought what better way to pay tribute to it than to kick things off with an album by one of heavy metal’s founding fathers: Black Sabbath. The thing is however, “Heaven and Hell” isn’t just an album, it’s a iconic album destined to go down in history as one of the greatest of all time.

The main question when this masterpiece was first unleashed back in 1980 was would new lead singer Ronnie James Dio fill the void left by Ozzy Osbourne. The answer to that is a resounding “YES!” Now, I am not going to debate who’s the better of these two vocal Gods. They both have different vocal styles but at the same time, their vocals were suited to the needs of Black Sabbath. Dio’s vocals are truly amazing on…

13 Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day… And…

Receives 4.5 Out Of 5 METAL FISTS!!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4Half - Metal Fist - metal odyssey

In case you’ve just gotten back from a trip to Neptune or have been lost in the remote northern woods of Pennsylvania, the iconic Black Sabbath have NEW music videos streaming online! Both songs are taken from their NEW studio album 13. See the links below! Whoa!

__________________________________

This critically acclaimed album, 13, was released on June 11th, 2013 in the U.S. and is an incredible offering of Metal from the founders of our beloved genre. Black Sabbath may be minus the legendary Bill Ward for 13, still, I am overly impressed by the total Sabbathian package of darkness and old school Doom vibes that blanket my senses each time I listen to 13.

As for the production of 13, regardless of any slight fuzz looming about, (which I find old school anyways), the powerful vocals of Ozzy Osbourne coupled with the unparalleled Doom riffage from Tony Iommi transcends any flaws that “some” critics believe to exist. Geezer Butler shines once again as well, proving to me he truly is among the kings of Heavy Metal bassists of both past and present.

I give Brad Wilk so much credit for accepting a challenge to fill the shoes of the legendary Bill Ward. A world-class drummer in his own right, Brad Wilk excels on 13! It’s damn right heroic of Brad’s ability to transform his musicianship to sound so amazingly Sabbath-like. (If any other drummers sat in for the 13 sessions, than I’m not aware of it and please excuse my not being informed).

How much input did Rick Rubin have in mixing and mastering 13 I do not know. I’ll say this much, Rick Rubin surpassed my expectations on 13; due to my anxious thoughts he would turn this album into an overly pasted-together and satin-polished Death Magnetic. 13 sounds much more organic than that, thank God.

Doom Metal was forged and pioneered by Black Sabbath. Stoner Metal spun-off from this iconic band’s Metal atmosphere of sound. 13 is a resounding reminder of just that. This is one Black Sabbath album I never thought would happen and it’s here. Go out and get it and be thankful we still have this band around to make our Metal world that much more prolific.

God isn’t dead; nor is Black Sabbath.

Metal be thy name.
