Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts – Sunday, July 13th, 2014

RAMONES - Promo album pic!

Above: Front cover for debut album RAMONES, released in 1976 via Sire Records. L to R: Johnny Ramone, Tommy Ramone, Joey Ramone and Dee Dee Ramone.

______________________________

It’s an overcast and humid Sunday morning, here in Southwestern Ohio. There are thunderstorms forecasted for later today, due to the cold front coming in from the Northwest. Reports are that some of these storms may be severe. Whoa. Temperatures are to drop to the lower 70’s for this (early) coming week too. That’s early October in July!

On a somber note, everyone at Metal Odyssey expresses condolences to the family, friends and fans of the legendary Tommy Ramone. At only 65 years of age,  Tommy Ramone passed away on July 11th. He was the original drummer for the Ramones and also contributed as a producer and songwriter for the band. Tommy Ramone was the drummer on the first three Ramones studio albums. If there’s a Rock And Roll Heaven, I’m certain the Ramones are now touring up there and making some noise. God bless them all.

Queen - debut album promo pic - #9907

On this day in Rock History, the debut and self-titled album from Queen was released back in 1973. What more can be said? The rest truly is iconic Rock History. By the way, I was only seven years old then. Whoa!

Iced Earth - large classic logo - #5

Jon Schaffer, (legendary guitarist & founder of ICED EARTH), has recently undergone neck surgery. Below is Jon Schaffer’s latest update and good news on his situation, as posted on the ICED EARTH Facebook page:

Hello friends,

I’m writing to let you know that I made it through the surgery and am steadily on the road to recovery. The surgeon informed us that everything went smooth during the operation and that I should be back in action within a few months.

Thank you all very much for your support, you truly are the best fans any band could ask for.

Take care and best to you all,

Jon Schaffer

ZOMBIE DANDIES – S/T Demo EP Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in glam metal, glam rock, Heavy Metal, metal music, music news, Punk rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

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

The Zombie Dandies S/T Demo EP Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Give The Zombie Dandies A Listen Below! And… Get Your FREE Download Of This EP From The Zombie Dandies Bandcamp:

SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS – UK Hardcore/Punk Act’s First Album In Twenty-Two Years Streaming At Decibel

Posted in hardcore, hardcore punk, Punk rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on October 17, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Satanic Malfunctions - Them - promo cover pic

Them, the first LP from UK hardcore punk trio SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS, is out now via Poland’s demolition experts, Selfmadegod Records. Surging with rabid, old-school circle-pit intensity and politically oriented, cynical and pissed-off lyrical tirades, Them dispatches twenty tracks in just over thirty minutes, resulting in one of those “get this now” releases for devotees to acts like Active Minds, Disorder, Doom, Atavistic, Electro Hippies, L’arm and Heresy.

Decibel Magazine is now hosting a full-on stream of the entire Them LP to celebrate its release, joined by a rapid interrogation of SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS’ percussion specialist, Ade. Check it out RIGHT HERE.

Pick Them up via Selfmadegod, who in 2012 also released the SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS Disgrace To Music 2xCD compilation both previous LPs and all EP and compilation tracks. Merch bundles are available now direct from Selfmadegod HERE, and Them is available digitally HERE.

The newest SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS LP since the Scarborough, UK-based act’s 1990-releasedDisgrace To Humanity, the whirlwind of old-school hardcore punk on Them is a throwback to the mid-late ’80s hardcore scene when grindcore was only beginning to take shape. Recorded by Bri Doom, of UK crust legends, Doom, Them proves that the quartet — vocalist Kai, guitarist Yaga, bassist Ryan and drummer Ade — haven’t let their guard down, and are as capable of deploying the same aggressive, ultra-fast and frenzied socio-political musical melee they did more than two decades ago.

MANRAZE – FEATURING PHIL COLLEN (DEF LEPPARD), PAUL COOK (THE SEX PISTOLS) & SIMON LAFFY (GIRL) TO RELEASE NEW EP – “I SURRENDER” ON NOVEMBER 12, 2013

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock bands, Music, Punk rock, rock bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on October 2, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Manraze - promo band pic - 2013 - #1 - B&W

Debbi Blackwell-Cook Lends Her Stunning Soulful Pipes to the Title Track

(Los Angeles)  MANRAZE, the London-based rock band formed by iconic Def Leppard lead guitarist Phil Collen, along with punk rock forerunner Paul Cook (Sex Pistols) on drums and Simon Laffy, rockin’ bass player of Collen’s former glam-band, Girl, will release their new EP, I Surrender, on November 12th.

I Surrender will be comprised of three songs, including the title track, which features background vocals by Debbi Blackwell-Cook, who also appears on “All I Wanna Do”, a newly-recorded version of the song which first appeared on the trio’s 2011 sophomore album punkfunkrootsrock.  The final track is “Connected-Live from Shepherd’s Bush”, a live studio performance from a studio podcast session, not previously released.

The first single, “I Surrender”, was nearly forgotten about, explains Collen, “The song is 8 years old. It practically never got finished. I was on tour last year and started singing the chorus. Early this year, I re-did the guitars to Paul’s original demo drums. I did a vocal and Simon played new bass-lines.  Ger McDonnell then did a brilliant edit and mix on what we gave him. Debbi Blackwell-Cook supplied the wailing outro-vocals that you hear at the end of the song. We feel this is our best song yet.”

_______________________________________

In the spring of 2011, the MANRAZE single “I, Superbiker” was the theme song for the feature documentary of the same name. Another Manraze song featuring Debbi Blackwell-Cook titled ‘Take On The World’ was also released in conjunction with the film. Directed by Mark Sloper, and released solely in the UK, the documentary is an in-depth expose’ into the merciless world of competitive speed bike racing and a look at the men who have dedicated their entire existence to this incredibly dangerous, adrenaline-fueled sport.

Since the last album release, all three band members have kept busy.   Collen continues to hold down his ‘day-job’ as lead guitarist with Def Leppard, currently promoting their Def Leppard Viva! Hysteria Concert live album and dvd release this month.  Cook has been working with Edwyn Collins, first on his 2013 album release ‘Understated’, and then touring with Collins playing live shows. Currently, Cook is also playing in Subway Sect with Vic Goddard touring and recording a new album. Laffy has taken his talents into another creative lane, having authored two novels in his ‘off-time’, Red Sunrise and Seed of Satan.  Both are historical fictions, set around epic events of the 20th century and are in the process of being published.

It all started in 2004, when Phil Collen, after 20+ years as lead guitarist for Def Leppard, decided to express himself via another creative outlet.  After a chance meeting on the street with Paul Cook, MANRAZE finally released their debut album SURREAL through Universal Records in the summer of 2008 to rave reviews.  The group’s debut album was chocked full of rebellious in-your-face mantras (“Turn it Up”, “This Is,” “Skin Crawl”, “Running Me Up”) ranging from hardcore punk to dub.  They were seen as a cross between the Foo Fighters, Green Day, Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, and The Police. MANRAZE is a response to the ever-changing climate of multi-faceted music and should be heralded for far more than just being a ‘rock band’.

MISFITS – ALL-NEW MISFITS STUDIO SINGLE COMING FOR HALLOWEEN

Posted in horror, horror punk, Music, Punk rock, punk rock bands, rock albums, rock and roll, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on September 18, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

12 Jacket (3mm Spine) [GDOB-30H3-007}

MISFITS – That’s right Fiends, the ‘fits will debut two all-new studio recordings for the first time anywhere on a special limited edition 12-inch maxi-single this Halloween!

90’s era Misfits ‘fiend’ fav “Descending Angel” has been re-recorded with a brand new 2013 treatment by the “Devil’s Rain” lineup (Jerry, Dez and Chupacabra). The new single features wicked cover art by Jeff Zornow (Fright Rags, IDW’s Godzilla comics & more). Here’s a first glimpse of the old-school inspired, one-color sleeve art, compliments of Misfits Records. (Shown above).

More news will follow, including details on the flip side track, (hint for die-hard fiends…you’ve only heard the ‘fits perform this track live, but a studio version will soon debut). Also keep your evil eyes peeled for advance word on pre-ordering, highly limited exclusive variant vinyl colorways, and how to get your copy before it even arrives in stores!

This and lots more, coming VERY soon from Misfits Records. Stay tuned…

Los Angeles Punk Rock Band Is A Hit With MTV And KROQ

_______________________________________

Los Angeles, CA – Equipped with a recipe of hard-hitting beats, thought-provoking lyrics and chart-worthy hooks is the Los Angeles punk rock band, Harmful if Swallowed. The band is releasing their six-song EP Allergy containing the hypnotic singles, “Sabrina (Little Angel)” and “Allergy,” available now on iTunes. Since the release of their acclaimed debut Serverthe band has garnered a faithful following with tracks appearing on multiple MTV shows and are frequently spun on the world-famous Los Angeles rock station KROQ. Harmful If Swallowed is preparing to raise their bar even higher with their best work to date, Allergy.

Fronted by vocalist/guitarist Greg Martin, the band’s lineup is made up of Josh Loren (drums), Carlos Nieto III (bass, backing vocals) and Brian Martinez (rhythm guitar). The latest EP, produced at the hands of GRAMMY award-winner, Matt Hyde (Slayer, Porno for Pyros, No Doubt), delivers an impressive range of subject matter, rhythm and sound. Allergy is a smooth evolution from previous records; charged with a fiery energy, stellar vocal chops and real-life situation lyrics.

“Sabrina (Little Angel)” hits hard at the opening with witty lyrics, propulsive drum kicks and enticing electric guitars all supported by strong vocals and ear-pleasing harmonies on the hook. The title track “Allergy”, written about an ex-girlfriend, moves listeners in a similar fashion with canny metaphors and raw emotion. The song compares an ex-girlfriend who makes you so sick whenever she reappears, like a bad allergy.

Songs like “Hateful” and “Recession” are a little more provocative but still feature the Harmful If Swallowed mainstay – head-banging instrumentation. While the track “Lindsay” has it all – catchy hooks, witty lyrics and is penned about the queen of trouble, Lindsay Lohan. Each song is a seamless introduction to the next, while keeping listeners intrigued and entertained. Allergy was recorded in Hollywood, CA at Sunset Lodge with the fine-tuned and crystal clear sound achieved with the help of engineer, Chris Rakestraw  (Bad Religion).

Harmful If Swallowed quickly realized their instant chemistry and it ignited a supernatural musical collaboration. Boasting their suggestive band name, Harmful if Swallowed released their debut album Serverwhichwas handpicked for a selection of MTV shows and caught the attention of radio DJ Kat Corbett (KROQ) who is an avid fan and supporter. Taking full advantage of their increased exposure and growing fan base, the band embarked on a slew of performances including co-headlining concerts with some of the industry’s biggest names such as KoRn, Green Day, Weezer, FEAR, Bad Religion and numerous others.

The band’s follow up album The Chronicles of Losing was released in 2009 and again caught the attention of industry professionals and fans alike. Determined to further develop and improve as musicians and artists, Harmful if Swallowed was inspired to create a new sound and take a new direction.Allergy is a graceful, intelligent departure that proves to fans their evolution is still rocketing.

It’s only a matter of time until heads are banging to the new sounds of Harmful if Swallowed. The name of the band hardly describes their music – so don’t be afraid to take a mouthful of the new EP, Allergy. Keep up with Harmful if Swallowed, at www.HarmfulifSwallowedband.com.

STATEMENTS FROM MEMBERS OF X ON THE PASSING OF RAY MANZAREK

(Los Angeles) It is with sad and heavy hearts that the members of the seminal Punk Rock band, X, pay tribute to their friend and mentor, Ray Manzarek.

Ray Manzarek is an integral part of X’s history. The band’s debut album, Los Angeles was released on April 26, 1980 and produced by Ray. The album includes a cover of the 1967 Doors song “Soul Kitchen” and was the bands most successful release. It ranked # 16 for the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop Critics Poll. Subsequently in 1989, it was ranked number 24 on Rolling Stone’s list of 100 best albums of the 80s and Pitchfork ranked it 91st on their top 100 albums of the 1980s. The title track is included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll  and again in 2003, the album was ranked number 286 on the Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Ray went on to produce the next three studio albums for the band, Wild Gift in 1981 (also on the Rolling Stone list of the 500 greatest albums of all time at #334), Under the Big Black Sun in 1982 and 1983’s More Fun in the New World.

In late 2010, X celebrated the 30th Anniversary of Los Angeles by playing the entire album, start to finish.  Ray joined the band during their two shows in San Francisco, just after Christmas. In August of 2012, Ray again joined the band for the entire show at the famed Roxy Theatre during the Sunset Strip Music Festival, playing Los Angeles in its entirety. In 2013, Rhino released The Doors/X Side by Side: Soul Kitchen, a split white vinyl 7″.

Ray Manzarek

Ray led by example, from The Doors to carmine burana and beyond. He is and will always be a spirit being, adept at expanding perception. And once those doors of perception are opened, they never close. He taught me that we are the keys, that we can unlock all doors, everywhere, to create magic, to transform ourselves and power the world, through joy and love and imagination and art and, above all through music. – Exene

Ray was a mentor to X in our early days and a something of a father figure to Exene & me. He was brilliant & soulful. If Bob Dylan brought poetry & folk to popular music; Ray & the Doors brought the blues & poetry to rock music. The Doors are rock royalty. It has been a privilege & honor to call Ray a friend and share the stage w/ him. – John Doe

Ray always believed in us.  We’ll miss him.  My heart goes out to Dorothy and Pablo. – Billy Zoom

I am so sorry to hear about Ray’s passing. Not only was he an integral part of X’s history, he was a smart, funny, and kind friend. I will miss him. – DJ Bonebrake
