Rock Or Bust was recorded in the Spring of 2014, at Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, British Columbia and has AC/DC once again teaming up with producer Brendan O’Brien and mixer Mike Fraser. Founding member and guitarist Malcolm Young did not play on Rock Or Bust, due to his heartbreaking struggle with dementia. The nephew of brothers Angus and Malcolm Young, Stevie Young, played rhythm guitar on the new album.

Includes Seven Unreleased Tracks

Recognized as one of the world’s most influential bands in Rock music, Grammy-winning multi-platinum selling band Soundgarden started a musical transformation that inspired a generation in its record-breaking career, leaving an indelible mark by helping redefine Alternative and Hard Rock. Hard on the heels of the 20th anniversary deluxe re-release of its chart-topping, five-times-platinum 1994 album, Superunknown, earlier this year, Soundgarden’s latest release is a 3-CD rarities collection, Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path.

Among the seven unreleased tracks is a brand-new recording, “Storm,” recorded in May with producer Jack Endino in Seattle. The new collection was curated and hand-selected by guitarist Kim Thayil. Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path is the first time an official Soundgarden release has included more than 26 years of rarities that have appeared as B-sides, album bonus tracks, EPs, soundtracks, compilations and live recordings, a must for any fan of the band. The package features three separate thematic discs in a clear plastic slipcase with three separate mini-jackets, each sporting its own unique art, a booklet and inserts, allowing fans to mix and match, personalizing their own album graphic layout.

J.RAD “SICK FANTASY” – New Album Of Hard Rock Splendor Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock bands, Metal, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on November 3, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

J.Rad - Sick Fantasy - promo album cover pic - 2014

J.RAD – This seasoned and accomplished Hard Rock band originates from North Babylon, New York and what a hell of a band! The Hard Rock identity of sound that J.RAD plays I’ve found to be contagious and it’s my Metal duty to spread the Metal word! The new J.RAD studio album, Sick Fantasy, has elevated my love for guitar driven, heavy hittin’ and memorable American made Hard Rock! This album is so good that it’s one of the best Hard Rock albums I’ve listened to this year; with no pretentious bullshit to be heard, just pure 100% quality songs! Hard Rock hallelujah!

Lead vocalist Gino Rudolph has a tremendous voice, in my Metal opinion; he sings each song with such powerful conviction and emotion that I find it irresistible to applaud. In my Metal opinion, Gino can stand aside the best of vocalists in the Modern Hard Rock scene today, seriously, I find him that talented and fun to listen to. Drummer Mo Sticky is an obvious talent and flawlessly lays down the beats that send each song into their respective Hard Rock grandeur.

J.RAD - band logo - Sick Fantasy album - 2014 - #113JR

Guitarist Jared Cannata is so damn impressive with his fret work, this guy can freaking shred! Jared lays down so many crunchy,  fun-tastic riffs and solos that It’s easy to lose count of them all. My ears have informed me loud and clear that Jared Cannata can sonically dazzle with his axe. Whoa! With this level of musical talent impactful songs, Sick Fantasy is a non-stop ride through Hard Rock la-la land and I couldn’t be more honest than that judgement! This may all sound too good to be true, only it’s TRUE. Stone would never pump up an album unless it’s psyche-out city and this is exactly that, man!

The bassist keeping the rhythmic thunder rolling on this Sick Fantasy album you’ll hear is Russ Zutto and he’s since left the band on amicable terms. Therefore, it looks like J.RAD is searching for a new bassist to join their powerful band. The softest number on this album is Push and even this song Rocks. Overall, there is a sinister and bleak theme to this album lyrically; yet the up-tempo rhythm and melodies of the songs are what elevates my mood!

This album is for fans of SevendustAdelitas Way, CAVO, ColdPop Evil to FFDP and all in-between! Hard Rock and Metal fans alike can surely find something sonically cool about J.RAD. Man, this Sick Fantasy album has me elated and that’s what great albums and bands are supposed to do for me… or anyone else for that matter. Metal be thy name – Stone.

Sick Fantasy was released worldwide and is available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, and pretty much every other download/streaming service!

iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/sick-fantasy/id926322449?uo=4

Over the years J.Rad has had the opportunity to share the stage with many prominent artists such as: Scott Stapp (Creed), Saliva, Filter, Gemini Syndrome, Living Colour, Twisted Sister, Vince Neil (Motlley Crue), Bret Michaels (Poison), Mountain, Eye Empire, Saving Abel, Zach Myers (Shinedown), Styper, LA Guns, Blue Oyster Cult, Joe Bonamassa, Johnny Winter and many others.

Scarlett Gypsy #1 Debut Album “All Access” Is Dead-On Revival Of 80s Glam Rock

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on October 19, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Scarlett Gypsy Album Cover

Reunited East Coast band delivers fresh sounds, combining old school rock, glam metal and melodic vocals to fans across multiple genres!

__________________________________

YORK, Penn./PRNewswire/ — The Glam Metal Rock Band Scarlett Gypsy has garnered the attention of fans and critics alike with the unveiling of their eagerly awaited debut album – All Access – available now on Amazon, iTunes, CDbaby and Bandcamp.

The bevy of sub-genres associated with glam metal and hard rock have often given birth to one-off bands and songs, but rarely is there an entire band assembled with the primary purpose of getting in a room together to watch what happens when their respective creative juices blend into an album like All Access. Well, Scarlett Gypsy is one band that delivers it straight with the volume cranked up high.

Scarlett Gypsy was an up & coming rock band in 1991-1992 when the industry changed and left them behind. Beginning in 1991 as a highly admired Glam Metal Hard Rock Band, Scarlett Gypsy began taking on America as they journeyed the turbulent east coast early 90s rock scene in the Philadelphia/South Jersey area, focusing on clubs like The Empire & The Galaxy that launched the careers of bands like Bon Jovi, Cinderella, Britney Fox, Heavens Edge and Tangier along with hometown hotspot The Tourist Inn that launch bands like Halestorm and Kix.

Fast-forward 20 years – the band reunites and immediately took Google+, Twitter and the rest of the Internet by storm. Longing for their music to finally be heard, Scarlett Gypsy put a few songs to some of their concert footage and posted it on YouTube and within a few weeks had over 100,000 views on their Google+ page with fans requesting where they could buy the music. As all things that fade away seem to become fresh again someday, the band decided to independently release their first studio album internationally now available on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, CDbaby and Bandcamp.

Scarlett Gypsy is an American Rock Band originating from York, Pennsylvania, with David Mathew on Lead Vocals, Steve Plonk on Guitar & Vocals, Robert Douglas on Bass and Scotty Scarlett on Drums & Vocals. Together these four combined create a great new refreshing sound of old school rock complete with blazing guitar riffs, melodic vocals and infectious hooks.

The debut album delivers old school rock, ballads and wild party rock’n choruses for all new glam metal heads and rockers alike to enjoy. Boldly combining elements of raw rock with glam fueled gritty guitar riffs, melodic vocals and all-around high-octane music, this Gypsy Band is determined to please every fan’s need to rock-out on hot summer nights to catchy hooks, fist-pumping party-rock choruses and rhythmically loose powerful rock music.
