Phil Rudd - Head Job - promo cover pic - 2014

PHIL RUDD – The very legendary Phil Rudd, drummer for the iconic AC/DC, will be seeing his first solo album, Head Job, releasing on August 29th, 2014, via Universal Music Australia. I cannot help myself digging-to-the-max, the first single from Head Job: Repo Man. With a healthy dose of AC/DC styled Rock ‘N Roll, Repo Man is a straight-up Rockin’ song that makes me feel damn good! That is why the Repo Man (Official Lyric Video) is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day! – Stone

CRANK UP SOME REPO MAN, YOU MUTHAS!!

From the About column of Phil Rudd’s Facebook:

Citing influences ranging from Ringo Starr and Free/Bad Company’s Simon Kirk, to Mountain’s Leslie West and bandmates Malcolm & Angus Young, these songs and lyrics are all very special to Rudd and when talking about the release of this album which has had such a long gestation, he said: “I’m very happy for it to finally make its way out there and for people to hear it!”.

The songs were penned primarily by Rudd with the assistance of Allan Badger and Geoffrey Martin – musicians Phil met on the local scene, which he says “turned out to be a great musical partnership”. ‘Badge’ & Martin also perform vocals, guitars & bass on the album, with Rudd sitting in the producer’s seat. The tracks came together over a period of time recorded at several locations including the studio that Rudd built himself not far from his restaurant “Phil’s Place” in Tauranga, New Zealand.

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.

MACH22 “Sweet Talk Intervention” – Debut Album From Philly Hard Rockin’ Band Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

MACH22 – The self-released debut album, Sweet Talk Intervention, from Philadelphia’s MACH22 launched on May 6th and it’s a whiz-bang, dandy of a good-times Hard Rockin’ listen! With so many young Hard Rock bands not igniting my adrenaline these last few years, it’s refreshing to exclaim that: MACH22 – Sweet Talk Intervention is Stone’s Metal Pick Of The Day!

There’s truly no moments on this album that are remotely near average. Between vocalist Lamont Caldwell and lead guitarist Sebastian LeBar, with the rest of this ultra-talented band in-between, Sweet Talk Intervention is a Hard Rock album I can listen to repeatedly without feeling like I’ve had enough. With BIG guitars, soulful and truly memorable vocals, coupled with body inducing GROOVES, this is an album and band that YOU NEED to get your senses wrapped around!

MACH22 is a band that has undeniable eye-popping Hard Rockin’ chemistry and it’s all proof positive from my listening to their debut album. MACH22 stands above the crowded field of up and coming Hard Rock bands due their unique ability to bridge the gap between Classic Rock and Hard Rock of 2014. There is so much relevance and Hard Rock substance happening within the songs on this album that it’s actually bewildering to me. My favorite song? Try the entire album. Metal be thy name. – Stone

KYNG “Burn The Serum” Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

4.5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metal fists - 4.5 - metal odyssey

Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

KYNG - The power trio of KYNG are from Los Angeles, California and their sophomore album, Burn The Serum, was released on April 15th. KYNG plays eyeball popping Heavy Rock, embedded with muscular Stoner and Classic Rock stylings for good damn measure. KYNG has tapped into such a prolific hard and heavy sound that they’ve rubbed elbows within the Metal Universe with ease.

As for the album, Burn The Serum has proven to be one of the very, very best investments I’ve made all year with my music purchases. KYNG comes across musically, as if they’ve booted the status quo of Hard Rock into bloody submission, never to rear its boring and carbon copied head ever again. Whoa. This power trio can play and if you don’t believe or agree with me, then your grandma’s dusty ABBA vinyl collection and her old Readers Digests are calling for you.

The lead single, Electric Halo, from Burn The Serum, showcases soaring and melodic vocals from guitarist/vocalist Eddie Veliz which reminds me of a time when singers really did sound like superheroes; and all I wanted to do was grow up to be that super dude I’m hearing on the 45 rpm. I harken back to the day, when I spinned Bad Company’s Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy for hours on end. Oops… back to 2014.

KYNG delivers all things powerful on Burn The Serum and if this sophomore release is any indication, to me, the Heavy Rock universe is the limit for this band. This power trio was born to be KYNG. ‘Nuff said and… Metal be thy name. – Stone

Crank Up Electric Halo, Below! Whoa!

KIX – SIGNS WITH LOUD & PROUD RECORDS; FIRST NEW ALBUM IN 19 YEARS CURRENTLY IN THE WORKS AND SET FOR JULY 22nd RELEASE

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, hard rock bands, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on April 19, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

KIX - promo band pic - #005130 - 2014

Look for KIXSteve Whiteman (lead vocals), Jimmy Chalfant (drums, vocals), Ronnie Younkins (guitars), Brian Forsythe (guitars) and Mark Schenker (bass)—to release their first new album in almost two decades on July 22, thanks to their new partnership with Loud & Proud Records. What makes the project even more exciting and anticipated is that the album features the band’s original line-up, with the exception of Schenker on bass.

“The boys and I are so happy that our old friend, Tom Lipsky, has invited us to join the Loud & Proud family,” exclaims Whiteman. “We worked with Tom and Madelyn Scarpulla on our last studio album, SHOW BUSINESS, and we’re looking forward to working with them again with the release of the first new KIX album in almost 19 years! We’ll still be coming to a dump near you very soon!”

Loud & Proud Owner & President Tom Lipsky adds, “What I have always loved about KIX is they make rock ‘n roll fun. What I love about their new music is that it’s pure, genuine KIX music, straight up guitar rock with no compromise. They’re not chasing trends or trying to re-invent themselves. They’re simply doing what they do best…and now they can do it Loud and Proud!”

KIX - Logo - neon green - 2014 - #33038

Marking the re-emergence of KIX in early-2000’s, the band had teamed up a few times a year to test the waters with reunion shows in Maryland/Pennsylvania, which were very well received. Then in the summer of 2008, KIX performed outside the mid-Atlantic for the first time in 13 years at two of the biggest rock festivals in the U.S. Rocklahoma in Pryor, OK and Rock the Bayou in Houston, TX. The band was hailed by many music websites and attendees as “Best Performance” at both festivals, where they played alongside Sammy Hagar, Alice Cooper, Tesla, Queesryche, Ratt, and more.

As the demand for new music has never subsided and in fact has only increased over the last few years, the band decided that they can no longer ignore the overtures from their fans and are currently recording new KIX songs. The new album, due out summer 2014, is produced by Taylor Rhodes, who last worked with KIX on 1991’s HOT WIRE album. Rhodes has also written hit songs for Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne and Journey.

Stay tuned for new album news, which will be announced in the coming weeks, and check out KIX on tour at any of the following stops (with more to be announced soon):

Fri 4/25 – Columbia, MD @ M3 Festival

Sat 5/24 – Pryor, OK @ Rocklahoma

Sat 5/31 – Sandusky, OH – Ohio Bike Week

Saints Of Rebellion - promo band pic - #73109 - 2014

Baltimore, MD: New rockers Saints of Rebellion delay their debut release New American Dream until June 3, 2014. “The reasons are quite simple, we added two additional tracks and remixed the entire release, we shot a video that is still being edited, a full radio campaign is being launched, and we just landed a great summer tour. This gives us time to properly setup and service the release and work it the way it should be with all of these things working together. Timing is everything and all of these things give us a little bit more time to do it right.” says label owner Bill Chavis.

Track listing:

1. New American Dream
2. Gasoline
3. Alone
4. Garden
5. Get You Some
6. Wine, Women & Song
7. Matters
8. Rise
9. 30 and a 5th
10. Better Days

Dates and tour announcements will be revealed shortly but in the meantime catch Saints of Rebellion on Thursday April 24th for the M-Pre Party in Columbia, MD at Sonoma’s.

We are excited to announce the new album SPACE INVADER, Ace’s first new solo album in five years, via E1 Music on June 24th, 2014.

The album will include at least nine brand new original songs as well as a cover of Steve Miller Band’s “The Joker.”

An official statement from Ace surrounding the exciting news:

“Life on Earth has been very good to me, and the body of work I’ve created over the years has withstood the test of time. Today I see no obstacles before me and my creativity has never been more fine tuned. Growing up in an Alien world has enhanced my senses and allowed me to succeed where others would have failed. The best is yet to come!”

Fans can also find a burning instrumental called BANGKOK where the drums of Brian Tichy and the bass of Thomas Nero make the difference.
