Dirty Cakes - I'd Luv To See You Nakid - promo cover pic - 2013

DIRTY CAKES BAND – Back on October 1st, 2013, I’d Luv To See You Nakid, the debut (3 song) EP from Dirty Cakes Band was self-released. It is available as a name your price at the (fabulous) music media platform known as Bandcamp (see below). This Psychedelic Desert Grunge band, in my Metal opinion, have 3 outstanding songs to launch their career from, therefore:

DIRTY CAKES BAND – I’D LUV TO SEE YOU NAKID IS STONE’S METAL PICK OF THE DAY!

I really dig Dirty Cakes Band and there appears to be many others that do as well; especially of the female variety and one visit to their twitter page will explain what I mean. Dirty Cakes Band call Los Angeles, California, home. Their overall sound is a bounty of what I want to hear from an up and coming Hard Rock band. Dirty Cakes Band are (just enough) raw, while dabbling in a few Rock genres and molding it all together to make their own unique and refreshing musical statement.

Dirty Cakes Band have taken their brand of sound and united it with the relevancy of Classic Rock in a wonderful and memorable way. The future should surely be successful for Dirty Cakes Band, as long as they continue to make more great songs, tour and market themselves on social media with Rockin’ legit drive, hunger and passion. They’re certainly off to a tremendous start already. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Metal Odyssey’s Stone Picks His Top Ten Hard Rock Albums Of 2013

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, hard rock albums, hard rock bands, Heavy Metal, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on January 6, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

The Winery Dogs - promo cover pic - 2013

#1

THE WINERY DOGS – S/T

I’ve written that Motörhead are the greatest power trio alive on planet Earth. Well, um, The Winery Dogs are too. Take your pick! Mike Portnoy (drums), Richie Kotzen (vocals) and Billy Sheehan (bass) were born to make music together! The Winery Dogs are a supergroup prototype. Amen and hallelujah.

I don’t know how to put it all into words, other than WHOA! This is a #1 Hard Rock album of any year! Excellent songs and I won’t waste time on the musicianship. If this is what American Hard Rock is supposed to sound like in 2013 and beyond, then count me in! Freaking legends of Rock ‘N Roll are The Winery Dogs. Metal be thy name.

Alice In Chains - The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here - promo cover

#2

ALICE IN CHAINS

The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here

Alice In Chains couldn’t have delivered a more incredible follow-up to their 2009 gem Black Gives Way To Blue, with The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. William Duvall once again soars vocally, while Jerry Cantrell’s guitar resonates splendid licks, riffs and tones that equate to iconic territory. This is very much a Classic Rock leaning album; just know the Hard Rock is mouth-watering.

Buckcherry - Confessions - promo - outside cover pic

#3

BUCKCHERRY – Confessions

The best Buckcherry album ever? It comes very, very, very close. Oh, yes, Confessions psyches me out of my Hard Rockin’ mind. I’m guessing that great Hard Rock albums are supposed to do just that.

Read Stone’s album review for Confessions here:

BUCKCHERRY – “Confessions” Is Out Now And It’s: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Black Star Riders - All Hell Breaks Loose - promo cover

#4

BLACK STAR RIDERS  – All Hell Breaks Loose

With current members of Thin Lizzy joining forces with drummer Jimmy DeGrassoBlack Star Riders was born. Led by the legendary guitarist Scott Gorham and fronted by Ricky Warwick, the debut album, All Hell Breaks Loose, from Black Star Riders, became an instant Hard Rock Classic to my ears and soul.

The spirit and legacy of Thin Lizzy still reigns within the world-class talent of Black Star Riders; and the songwriting, lyrics and total vibe of this album taps into everything that’s wonderful about Classic Hard Rock. This is an album I never expected to happen and now it’s a keeper for life! Metal be thy name.

Brand New Machine - The Devil Made Me Do It - promo cover pic

#5

BRAND NEW MACHINE

The Devil Made Me Do It

Brand New Machine is an American Hard Rock band YOU NEED to get into! One of the best Rockin’ surprises of 2013 is this album! From start to finish, The Devil Made Me Do It is high-octane Hard Rock on steroids!

Read Stone’s album review for The Devil Made Me Do It here:

Pinnick Gales Pridgen - promo cover pic - 2013

PINNICK GALES PRIDGEN – S/T

As power trio’s go, this album will slap you Hard Rockin’ senseless!! I found this CD without knowing of its release at Best Buy and bought it without hearing a single note. That tells you something right there. Yes, there are those times when you CAN judge a book by its cover! Pinnick Gales Pridgen have unreal musical chemistry together and their songs are proof positive!

Pinnick Gales Pridgen also landed in Metal Odyssey’s Top Ten Songs of 2013, with Collateral Damage. Click the link below to enjoy the song and video yourself! Whoa!

SKID ROW

Deep Purple - Now What ?! - promo cover pic

#8

DEEP PURPLE – NOW WHAT ?!

Now What ?! is Deep Purple’s first studio album since 2005’s Rapture Of The Deep. Now What ?! is a continuation of arguably the most consistent Hard Rock band that ever lived. The undeniably influential Deep Purple have once again taken their unique, rich, Classic Hard Rock sound throughout an entire album and made it sound so complete. Ian Gillan and band have nothing more to prove. Now, it’s time for The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame to understand this.

King Kobra - II - promo cover pic

#9 (Tie)

KING KOBRA – II

If you wanna have a good time listening to a good times Hard Rock album, then put your good times face on and BUY this fun CD from the everlasting KING KOBRA. Now, let’s all campaign LOUDLY in 2014 to get the ultra legendary Carmine Appice into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Thank you very much and Metal be thy name.

#9 (Tie)

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS WITH CHESTER BENNINGTON

HIGH RISE

My God, I never imagined Chester Bennington fronting the grand Stone Temple Pilots. It’s Rock ‘N Roll genius!! This tidy EP packs a genuine punch of incredible musicianship, vocals and songs that are memorable from the start!

Boston - Life Love & Hope - promo album pic - 2013 - #1

#10

BOSTON – Life Love & Hope

To all the naysaying critics out there, Tom Scholz has created a gift for Boston fans. The songs on this album would never have seen the light of day, if it were not for Tom Scholz. Songs of personal importance to this musical mastermind are they; and they come across with Classic Rock brilliance!

The late Brad Delp, along with David Victor, Kimberley Dahme, Tommy DeCarlo and Tom Scholz are all featured lead singers. Louis St. August of Mass lends his talents with backing harmonies on album opener and album gem: Heaven On Earth. Another total surprise release, for me, was Life Love & Hope. Thank you, Tom Scholz.

METAL ODYSSEY’S BEST EP’s OF 2013!

METAL And HARD ROCK 2013 – It’s my Metal opinion, that 2013 was a revival year for many, many quality Rockin’ EP’s. I honestly cannot recall such a fantastic year for EP’s since (maybe) the glorious and colorful 80’s decade. From Stone Temple Pilots to Night Demon, these EP’s that I’ve listened to and enjoyed this past year deserve all the attention and recommendation I can possibly give them, right here on Metal Odyssey.

I’ve compiled a roll call below, of the 26 EP’s I want to celebrate from 2013. Please understand, these EP’s are in no particular order! However, my favorite #1 EP and choice for favorite cover song EP from 2013 are stated below! Many shall find their way onto Metal Odyssey’s 2013 Best Of Albums lists; that’s when the ranking will come into play (if you will). My apologies to any band’s EP that I’ve missed from 2013, I can’t hear ‘em all! Please leave your favorite or missing EP from this list, via comment!!

For now, peruse or glance at this Best EP’s Of 2013 list below and know I heavily endorse each and every EP and band below! Whoa! Please support as many bands you’ll see here as you can! Also look for an EP review link or written review below each title!

Kill For Eden FRONT2 ep copy

KILL FOR EDEN – Living On Mars

Kill For Eden are from London, England and have an enormously contagious 3 song EP that’s titled: Living On Mars. This Hard Rock band mixes up both heaviness and melodies like a delicious treat, straight from the Rock ‘N Roll bakery of ear pastry! Lyla D’Souza has captured the essence of a true Hard Rock vocalist with legitimacy covering her from head to toe! Think: a modern-day Debbie Harry; only not a clone. ALL 3 songs on this EP are ROCK SOLID!

Combined with mega talent, mega songs, a memorable sound and credibility oozing from every musical crevice, Kill For Eden should one day be bigger than they could ever dream imaginable! At least that’s how I feel about this dynamic band. Whoa!

HALESTORM

ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVeRs eP

I’ve enjoyed this second covers EP from Halestorm light years more than their first! The song selection here is unreal good! With the weakest cover song being the AC/DC classic, Shoot To Thrill, 5 out of 6 cover songs that have Rocked my brain loose is fun-fabulous for me! Lzzy Hale and band NAILED it on part 2!

Lzzy Hale is incredible on Fleetwood Mac’s Gold Dust Woman. One track that surprised the hell out of me is the cover of Daft Punk’s Get Lucky… Halestorm makes this song soar!

Philip H. Anselmo And The Illegals – Warbeast 

With 2 previously unreleased studio tracks from Philip H. Anselmo And The Illegals, along with 2 previously unreleased live tracks from Warbeast, the end result is nothing short of a Metal bliss trip! 4 heavy-as-shit songs worth their weight in 10 beer kegs! Philip H. Anselmo is a Metal icon x 100.

Bat - primitive age - promo cover pic

Metal Odyssey’s #1 FAVORITE EP Of 2013!

BAT – Primitive Age (Demo)

When Ryan Waste (Bass/Vocals), Nick Poulos (Guitar) and Felix Griffin (Drums) united to form BAT, I just knew their Metal was gonna kick my ass. Oh, it has. Old school Metal with no bells or whistles on the production end, Primitive Age is an absolute Metal MUST for each Metalhead alive today.

If I had to choose a #1 favorite original recordings EP on this list, it’s this EP Demo. BAT has reminded me, once again, that EP demos are stuff of legend. Listen for yourself, name your price and buy it by clicking the link below:

Inhale The Fall - Debut EP - promo cover - 2013

INHALE THE FALL – Debut S/T EP

From Cork, Ireland comes Inhale The Fall. Vocalist Jenny O’ Keeffe is brilliant! This entire band is rolling in talent! Think: Modern Hard Rock/Metal that isn’t a carbon copy of another carbon copy.  I certainly hope grand Metal events happen for Inhale The Fall, this band is too good.

You can purchase this tremendous EP from Inhale The Fall by going to iTunes:

https://itunes.apple.com/ie/album/inhale-the-fall-ep/id682167489

Ghost - If You Have Ghost - promo cover pic - 2013

GHOST – If You Have Ghost

As a follow-up to their outstanding 2013 full-length, Infestissumam, Ghost releases the If You Have Ghost EP. Production is a quantum leap forward, compared to their (already classic) debut: Opus Eponymous.

Melodic and AOR leaning on these 4 cover songs (and 1 live track), with musical and vocal talent galore, Ghost is still Old School with lots of hazy and macabre like atmosphere. It’s just a crying shame that someone talked Ghost into covering ABBA’s I’m A Marionette. That is Metal sacrilege for such a grand band to go near such a pile of shit as that.

Papa Emeritus II and these nameless ghouls of Metal have effectively established themselves as a top-tier band and brand in our beloved genre. Fans of the legendary Dave Grohl will be tickled senseless, knowing that he produced this EP; along with playing drums, percussion and rhythm guitar on select songs. Metal be thy name!

For Today - Prevailer - promo cover pic - 2013

FOR TODAY – Prevailer

The Christian Hardcore/Metal warriors, For Today, didn’t disappoint my ears with their EP: Prevailer. Once again, For Today keeps their incredible energy level on full-throttle, with their intense Metal exploding from every nook and cranny!

The bonus track is an acoustic version of Fearless (original non-acoustic version is heard on their 2012 studio album: Immortal) and it is a highlight of highlights on this MUST Metal  EP from For Today. Make no Metal mistake, For Today delivers brutal Metal. Period. Wow good.

Sangus - Vengeful Brutality - promo cover pic

SANGUS – Vengeful Brutality

Without a Metal doubt, SANGUS has the most brutal, extreme and vein exploding EP on this “Best EP’s Of 2013″ list! Metal be thy name, SANGUS doesn’t just want to kick you ass into oblivion with their Metal… this band sounds like they want to destroy all Metal non-believers! Perfect.

With (only) 3 songs, the proof is in the Metal from SANGUS and they deliver like a rabid raccoon, filled with rage on a street full of outdoor Summer barbecues! Black Crusted Death Thrash never sounded so insanely good!

Check out Vengeful Brutality for yourself, by clicking the link below! You can buy this killer EP by naming your price too! Whoa!

Crystal Ball - Dawnbreaker - promo cover pic - 2013

CRYSTAL BALL – Released on November 29th, via Massacre Records, is the new album, Dawnbreaker, from Lucerne, Switzerland’s Crystal Ball. One lead single from this comeback album is Anyone Can Be A Hero. I absolutely love this song and all of its melodic glory! A heightened grand vibe of absolute Heavy Metal power, uncontrollably runs through my veins, as I listen to this song, again and again!

Tremendous musicianship, from top-to-bottom, swirls around the super fabulous vocals of new frontman Steven Mageney. What a Metal ride is this song for me! Original members Scott Leach (lead guitar) and Marcel Sardella (drums) have obviously made it clear; their band Crystal Ball is back and ready to stun the Metal and Hard Rock world with their new album ablaze! Join me, in supporting Crystal Ball and their new-found triumph! Metal be thy name!

Tigertailz - promo band block pic - band logo - #111 - 2013

TIGERTAILZ – 2013 can be  earmarked as (another) triumphant comeback for the (Cardiff, Wales) legends of Glam/Sleaze: TIGERTAILZ. With founding member Jay Pepper (guitar) and long-time drummer Matt Blakout, TIGERTAILZ rounds out with Jules Millis on vocals and Rob Wylde on bass.

With 6 years elapsed since TIGERTAILZ released any new studio material, Knives (5 song EP) was released this past October 22nd, via Scarlet Records. Knives is a 5 song EP worth the wait for fans of TIGERTAILZ and any old schoolin’, no foolin’, beer bong toolin’ Heavy Rock aficionado.

KERRANG! gave this new Knives EP a KKKK rating and I highly recommend that you support TIGERTAILZ by picking up this EP; Knives costs less than an overpriced steak and no animal has to die for you to enjoy it! Metal be thy name!

Below, watch and listen to The Shoe Collector and realize that this is:
