The Zombie Dandies - EP - promo cover pic

THE ZOMBIE DANDIES – Just when I thought I was the only dude left on Earth that used the word dandy, along came The Zombie Dandies. In a way, I feel semi-redeemed for still using that magical word as an adjective in my writings. Heck, (drummer & vocalist) Marty has the last name: Dandy. Whoa.

A Glam/Punk band from Normandy, France, the other half of The Zombie Dandies is K1000 Zombie (guitars & vocals). This duo has released a self-titled demo EP back in 2012 and it is a DIY, raw, retrospective… dandy. This demo EP reminds me of the tape trading daze, (oops, I meant days), when underground and/or rising bands were being touted by us hell rats and Metalheads, back in the pre-digital era.

Fans of (the very early) Mötley Crüe and Sunset Strip era should dig The Zombie Dandies, while those who love the low-end production of early Misfits may become gleeful at what they hear from this demo EP. If you can never get enough of Too Fast For Love and then reach for the Ramones, you are in for a FUN surprise with The Zombie Dandies. Metal be thy name. – Stone

WIG WAM “Wall Street” – Glam! Bam! Hot Damn! It’s Dazzling, Anti-Greed Rock ‘N Roll!

Posted in glam metal, glam rock, Hair Metal, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on June 26, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

WIG WAM – Winners of the Eurovision Song Contest with In My Dreams in 2005, touring heavily at home and internationally and achieving Gold and Platinum selling success, Norway’s WIG WAM is back at it again with a solid album of dazzling Rock ‘N Roll and it’s titled: Wall Street. This is WIG WAM Glam style. Wall Street was released on May 18th, via Frontiers Records. This is an album that brings the 80’s bright lights and color, while combining the spaciously loud atmosphere of yesteryear’s Arena Rock with Hair Metal attitude, style and sound.

The admirable accomplishment  here with Wall Street, is that WIG WAM ties in plenty of relevant vibes within their songs, steering away from being just another Glam tribute band to a decade long gone. Just when it seems like the world doesn’t need one more loud 80’s influenced Glam band, WIG WAM is reminding the masses that this genre isn’t going away and its music is being gobbled up by generations of fans. A miracle? Nope. Blame it on the spirit and mystique of Rock ‘N Roll.

Yes, WIG WAM carries their 80’s and early 90’s Glam/Hard Rock influences on their sleeves and good for them. WIG WAM have written songs with substance; lyrically in much better taste than Steel Panther and that’s always a plus with Stone. A Norwegian sliver-of-sound will undoubtedly be heard and felt from WIG WAM; Victory Is Sweet is just that song which summons up the spirited Hard Rockin’ sound from that part of the world… and it’s exhilarating to hear.

As with the title track and The Bigger The Better, these are songs that point out social excess when it comes to money, greed and materialistic wants. The album cover alone should be an indication that there will be a greed theme hidden within the lyrical content heard here. I’m not going to get political here, only I applaud WIG WAM for sounding out on the strive for excessive wealth; that same excessive wealth in which no one can take with ‘em when they’re dead and buried anyways.

Teeny on guitar lays down more licks than my neighbors dog abby (when she is greeting anyone that goes near her). Glam on vocals is no Bret Michaels, Vince Neil or Steve “Sex” Summers. Nope. He’s Glam. It’s so refreshing to not hear a carbon-copy vocalist and even more refreshing when such vocalist like Glam is as damn good and cool to listen to. A talented bunch of Glam Rockers are these dudes from Norway. WIG WAM = (gulp) fun, fun, fun and they can surefire Rock the gilded palace down!

The album closer Things Money Can’t Buy is a heightened instrumental, getting its muscle from Teeny’s guitar. Just those sweet vibrations and tones alone tell the whole story here for me, it’s as if I can insert my own lyrics to this song and they would include family, friends, Metal Buddies and special, personal, memorable moments in time… all “things money can’t buy”.

Britny Fox – Bite Down Hard: Can You “Name The Babe” On The Album Cover?

Posted in glam metal, Hair Metal, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

BRITNY FOX – Back in 1991, Britny Fox released their third studio album and first without “Dizzy” Dean Davidson as the lead vocalist. Tommy Paris was now the new lead vocalist for Britny Fox on Bite Down Hard. The original core of Michael Kelly Smith (guitar), Billy Childs (bass) and Johnny Dee (drums) returned on Bite Down Hard, making this a memorable Britny Fox album for me. Bite Down Hard is a damn good and Hard Rockin’ album from Britny Fox, an album that shouldn’t be overlooked by this seminal Glam Metal band.

Fast Facts About Bite Down Hard:

The Metal guitar warrior known as Zakk Wylde plays a solo on the track: Six Guns Loaded. The planetary and interplanetary famous drummer for Poison, Rikki Rockett, appears on the track: Midnight Moses.

Now, with all that out-of-the-way… onto “The Babe”. No, not Babe Ruth. The babe on the album cover for Bite Down Hard that is! Who was that blonde gal that had herself photographed only from the nose down for this cover? Trust me, she is famous. Trust me, she does deserve her “babe” status too. Can you guess who she is? Here are some hints that “maybe” will assist you along:

Hint #1: She is German born, back in 1972.

Hint #2: This babe has appeared in Playboy several times.

Hint #3: An accomplished actress, she has appeared on numerous television shows. An abbreviated list: Friends, Boy Meets WorldGeneral Hospital, Beverly Hills, 90210, The Commish and Xena: Warrior Princess. For motion pictures, she has appeared in: Airborne, That Thing You Do! and Stacy’s Mom.

There is no prize if you can “Name The Babe”, only a loud congratulations for the correct response will appear as an update in this post. Hey, that’s pretty damn cool stuff too. Good luck in trying to guess!

LONG LIVE THE ROCKIN’ LEGACY OF BRITNY FOX.

LONG LIVE BABES ON ALBUM COVERS.

THE POODLES “I Want It All” – This Song and Music Video… Indubitably ROCKS!

Posted in glam metal, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, heavy metal news, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news, rock music videos with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 13, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

THE POODLES – The song I Want It All by Sweden’s very famous Hard Rockin’ and Heavy Metalin’ band, The Poodles, has it all. Uplifting with its melodic vibrations and inspirational with its lyrics, I Want It All is a song that has motivated me recently, while trying to deal with crap that life sometimes throws my way. Take a listen to I Want It All for yourself below and maybe this is the song you need to pick yourself up with today.

I Want It All is the opening track from The Poodles 4th studio album: Performocracy. I’ve written before about this Performocracy album and I can’t recommend it highly enough. In my Metal opinion, The Poodles have released one of the years best in Melodic Heavy Metal/Hard Rock albums. Jakob Samuel on vocals is as underrated as they come and this band plays some damn memorable songs on Performocracy.

Performocracy was released in North America on May 3rd, 2011, via FRONTIERS RECORDS.

Jani Lane – May He Rest In Peace

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Metal Odyssey extends heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, band mates and fans of Jani Lane. The former lead singer of Warrant and Saints Of The Underground passed away on August 11, 2011. Jani Lane was only 47.

As a lead vocalist, songwriter and lyricist for Warrant, Jani Lane’s Hair Metal and Rockin’  identity could never be denied, especially on such Warrant album classics as 1989’s Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich and 1990’s Cherry Pie. Jani Lane’s music will live on for generations to enjoy. God Bless Jani Lane and may he rest in peace.

Stone.
