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

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

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock bands, Music, rock bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on November 12, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Manraze - I Surrender EP - promo pic - 2013

Will Be Featured Guest On Rockline – November 18, 2013

________________________________

(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, release their new EP, I Surrender available on iTunes today – November 12th.  On November 18th MANRAZE will be the featured guest on the nationally syndicated radio show, ROCKLINE with host Bob Coburn. Fans can tune in at 8:30 pm PT/11:30 pm ET. Check rocklineradio.com for more details.

When not rocking together, the MANRAZE trio continues to keep busy.   Collen holds down his ‘day-job’ as lead guitarist with Def Leppard, heading with the band into a Dublin studio in February to write and record new music.  Collen is also working on his own blues album Delta Deep featuring soulstress Debbi Blackwell-Cook and is currently writing his auto-biography (Simon & Shuster/Atria) due out late 2014.  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.

Manraze - band promo pic - #177 - 2013

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 fateful conversation with Simon Laffy and a next day chance meeting with Paul Cook MANRAZE was formed and finally released their debut album SURREAL through Universal Records in the summer of 2008 to rave reviews.

In August 2011 the trio re-enetered the studio and released punkfunkrootsrock which featured the single, “Over My Dead Body.”  In the spring of 2011 the MANRAZE single “I, Superbiker” was the theme song for the feature documentary of the same name. 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. MANRAZE’s single “Take On The World” featuring Debbi Blackwell-Cook was subsequently released in 2012 as a part of the soundtrack to Sloper’s sequel film “I, Superbiker: The Showdown” which chronicled the rise of 2011 British superbike racing champion Tommy Hill.

Boston - Life Love & Hope - promo cover pic - 2013

As reported on the BOSTON Facebook page:

More than 10 years in the making, BOSTON’s new studio album, “Life, Love & Hope” is ready for release! Finally emerging from his Hideaway Studio II, Tom Scholz says, “These are songs from the heart, each of them taking many months of effort to write, arrange, perform and record, always up to the demands of BOSTON’s harshest critic, me. They have all been meticulously recorded to analogue tape on the same machines and equipment used for BOSTON’s hits for the past 35 years.”

Available on December 3 on Frontiers Records, this album includes lead vocals from Brad Delp, Tommy DeCarlo, Kimberley Dahme, David Victor, and Tom Scholz, and features tracks with the classic BOSTON sound, as well as the latest in the evolution of Scholz’ musical artistry. “I intentionally stayed close to the early BOSTON style on some of the songs, even using the same amps and instruments; on others I let my imagination run wild,” says Tom.

All the tracks have the characteristic BOSTON trademark guitars, harmonies, and immaculately crafted sound. Tom worked very hard to fulfill the expectations of BOSTON fans new and old, and has created a diverse yet cohesive album that truly has something for everyone.

SNOW WHITE’S POISON BITE – “Featuring Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show” – Album Review

Posted in horror, Metal, metal music, Music, Punk rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , on October 30, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Snow White's Poison Bite - Featuring Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show - promo cover

3.5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metal Fists - 3 and a half - Metal Odyssey

SNOW WHITE’S POISON BITE – Somewhere along my Metal life, the combination of Horror and Rock ‘N Roll has snagged a part of my Metal soul and refuses to leave. Cool. Case in point: this past Summer, I picked up the new CD from Finland’s Snow White’s Poison Bite, with its lengthy (yet cool) title: Featuring Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show (Victory Records). I bought this CD without hearing a single note from it; the cover artwork sold itself!

If there is one dilemma I have with Snow White’s Poison Bite, it’s I wish they would settle on what sound they truly want to be famous for. These guys play (and Jeremy Thirteenth sings) Punk, Alternative, Extreme and Metal very well; only it’s the mixed bag of genres that distracts me; I sincerely want to be floored by this CD, only the change in musical styles has me asking: how does this band want to be labeled? If this Horror Crew wanted to just play straight-up (toasted cheese sandwich and beer) Horror Punk, saving the extremity and slivers of emo vocals for another day, then I’d do a naked jig clear across the beautiful state of Ohio. Yup.

Snow White's Poison Bite - Featuring Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show - promo cover

For the Metal money, this is a (gasp) FUN CD to listen to and the song titles should pretty much give that away. I am totally down with what Snow White’s Poison Bite have done with the marketing of their band, from the artwork to their Horror Punk attire and makeup. This is a rowdy CD, which adds an important plus to my liking it. I absolutely dig the creepy spoken words on both the intro (track 1) and ending (track 10) to this CD.

The legendary (former) Misfits frontman, Michael Graves, is featured on Zombie Romance. The (unexpected) 1950′s Doo Wop and Shoo Bop experience this song initially introduces only gives way to an even more delectable dish of creepy Horror Punk, making this song my favorite of the track list. At the end of my Metal day, I do recommend this CD to Horror Punk fans and Alternative (Heavy Rock) fans alike. Metal be thy name.

Track Listing:

1. Gruesomely Introducing: Dr. Gruesome And The Gruesome Gory Horror Show 2. The Gruesome Gory Horror Show 3. There’s A New Creep On The Block 4. Will You Meet Me In The Graveyard? 5. Halloween Means Death 6. Count Dracula Kid 7. Dr. Gruesome 8. Zombie Romance (Feat. Michael Graves) 9. Lurking Inside Of You 10. The Show Must Gruesomely End

Stone Temple Pilots With Chester Bennington “High Rise” EP – An Instant Rock Classic? Yes It Is!

Posted in classic rock, grunge, Hard Rock, hard rock albums, hard rock bands, Music, rock bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on October 15, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Stone Temple Pilots - High Rise - EP - promo cover

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

Stone Temple Pilots with Chester BenningtonHigh Rise EP was released on October 8th, 2013. This is the first of what is to be (hopefully) many more releases with Chester Bennington (of Linkin Park) on vocals. Yes, Chester Bennington hits a cosmic grand slam singing on this EP! Of course, that’s my Metal opinion, however, I guarantee y’all that I’m not alone!

As Chester Bennington had put it, on October 8th, on the Linkin Park Facebook page: “I am very excited that today marks the release of the HIGH RISE EP and the beginning of a new era for Stone Temple Pilots.” I’ll have to 100% agree with Mr. Bennington there! A new era for Stone Temple Pilots indeed! I absolutely believe that Chester Bennington can sing ANY song from the iconic catalog of Stone Temple Pilots with not just ease… he’ll sing any STP song with passion, sincerity and pride!

Listen to the latest single “Black Heart” from the High Rise EP by clicking here: http://news.iheart.com/iplaylist/artist/26075

The Grunge movement, yes, is a storied chapter in Rock history. Regardless of silly genre labeling, STP is a Seattle Heavy Rock ‘N Roll band in my world. With that said, STP (as with Alice In Chains) have (once again) gone into a direction musically that I find as instantly classic! I’m happy to say that this new STP EP is as BIG of a surprise to me than I’ve ever expected! I honestly cannot believe how enormous all 5 songs on High Rise play out and sound! Don’t be misunderstood, STP still comes out strong with their classic sound on this EP; it’s just that STP sounds more confident and bolder than ever before! I commend STP for releasing a 5 song EP with Chester Bennington, while not making their fans yearn for new material.

(Former) vocalist Scott Weiland may be gone and on his own now, still, I won’t turn my nose up at him; regardless of the negative stories that have surrounded him for many years running. Hey, no matter how we try to slice it, Scott Weiland is a Rock legend, just as all the members of STP (including Chester) are. Heck, I will forever get the ostrich bumps on my arms and face, while listening to Scott Weiland sing my 3 favorite STP songs of all time: Plush, Wicked Garden and Interstate Love Song.

Stone Temple Pilots - Chester Bennington - promo band flyer - 2013 - #477

I would think that a vast majority of STP fans will be bouncing off the ceiling for this new era of the band. I tried to bounce off my ceiling only it just didn’t work out too good. Emails have poured in asking me which is my favorite song off of High Rise. My favorite song is: Black Heart. (See above link to hear it!) This ultra Rockin’ song, as with this entire EP, are sonic proof that you don’t need to get too complicated with Rock ‘N Roll in order to make an instant Rock classic. BUY this High Rise EP and be happy that STP exists in 2013. Metal be thy name.

One last Metal thought:

By the way, if y’all found I ranted along too much here, please do not complain to my supervisor. Please don’t. Have some heart. Working here at Metal Odyssey is so fucking cool, cause the owner lets me take (many) beer breaks.

SASQUATCH – Los Angeles Rock Hellions To Release Fourth Full-Length Via Small Stone Tomorrow

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock albums, hard rock bands, Metal, metal music, Music, rock bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on September 23, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Sasquatch - IV - promo cover pic

Los Angeles hellions, SASQUATCH, will unleash their fourth full-length of red-eyed road rock via Small Stone Records this Tuesday! Fittingly titled IV, the drum and bass tracks were recorded by Steve Lehane and Al Sutton at Rustbelt Studios in Detroit, Michigan while guitars and vocals were recorded by Benny Grotto at Mad Oak Studios in Allston, Massachusetts (who also produced and mixed the nine-track offering). IV was mastered by Chris Goosman (Acid King, Suplecs, Sons of Otis) at Baseline Audio Labs in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Drawing influence from ’70s metal, rock, and psychedelia, SASQUATCH falls somewhere between an amalgamation of Black Sabbath, old Soundgarden, Deliverance-era Corrosion of Conformity, Mountain, and a bastardized version of Grand Funk Railroad. Their songwriting approach is clear;keep the focus on the hook.

IV Track Listing:

1. The Message

2. Eye of the Storm

3. Sweet Lady

4. Money

5. Smoke Signal

6. Wolves at My Door

7. Me and You

8. Corner

9. Drawing Flies

Sasquatch - IV - promo cover pic

A decade is a significant length of time by any measure, whether you’re talking about accelerating divorce rates or playing in a rock ‘n’ roll band. Add to that the fast-paced changes initiated by technology and a decade can feel like a lifetime… or, in the case of Los Angeles rockers SASQUATCH, a turbulent yet accomplished career.

After bursting onto the stoner rock scene with two closely packed studio albums (conveniently namedSasquatch I and II) in 2004 and 2006, the power-trio went subterranean until 2010 before resurfacing with a new lineup and propulsive third opus (entitled, you guessed it, III), to the relief of many impatient fans and the Small Stone Records Board of Directors.

More importantly though, this career-establishing trilogy managed to seduce consumers and critics: beginning with the debut’s roaring-down-the-highway riffs, hypnotic grooves and occasional forays into southern rock, continuing with the sophomore LP’s increasingly focused, hook-laden hard rock classicism (standout “Barrel of a Gun” lacked only payola to become a massive radio hit), and culminating in the third album’s heightened states of fuzz-distortion and earth-rumbling power chords, capable of reducing Marshall stacks to plastic pudding.

All the while, SASQUATCH steadily brought their advanced heavy rock “theories” to the people, as they demolished stages across the globe alongside the likes of Blue Cheer, Nebula, Unida, Solace and Fatso Jetson. Most recently, the band was sighted marauding across Europe with Small Stone labelmates Roadsaw and Dixie Witch.

Sasquatch - IV - promo cover pic

Meanwhile, SASQUATCH’s music has been tapped to soundtrack everything from movies (Jersey Girl), to television shows (FX’s Sons of Anarchy, A&E’s Dog The Bounty Hunter, the CW’s The Supernatural, and MTV’s Viva La Bam), to video games (NHL 2005, American Chopper, and Monster Garage).

The time has finally come for SASQUATCH members Keith Gibbs (guitar, vocals), Jason Casanova (bass) and Rick Ferrante (drums) to deliver a brand-spanking new album, whose chosen title - IV - was as inevitable as the urgent need shared by discerning fans of superior, song-oriented rock to hear it. IV is arguably the power trio’s most mature, inspired and diverse song-set to date, rife with compositional twists, both heartwarmingly familiar and totally unexpected, plus thundering power chords, sizzling solos, shrewd melodic flights and even super-trippy moments – but all heavy on the heavy.

To top it off, SASQUATCH have upped their lyrical game, devoting unprecedented attention to spinning engaging new yarns out of those evergreen rock ‘n’ roll stories about love lost, hate found, relationships built, lives trashed, homes wrecked… All’s fair in love and doom. At the end of the day,IV‘s shimmering end results reveal a real album, not just a collection of songs that happen to be living under the same roof to save a little rent money!

IV will be available via Small Stone Records September 24, 2013 (tomorrow)!

A Perfect Circle - band promo pic - 2013 - #1 - by permission

Sept. 17, 2013, LOS ANGELES – A Perfect Circle, the multi-platinum rock band helmed by Maynard James Keenan (TOOL, Puscifer) and Billy Howerdel (Ashes Divide), issue THREE SIXTY, the outfit’s first greatest hits collection, via Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) on Nov. 19.

The release also includes A Perfect Circle’s first new original, studio recording in a decade with the inclusion of By And Down,a song written after the band returned from their self-imposed hiatus for a series of live performances throughout 2010 and 2011.

“Billy and I created A Perfect Circle out of a now long-running friendship, and I think the music we have made reflects that personal connection and has given us the ability to further develop and trust our intuition,” explained Keenan.  “I feel THREE SIXTY is an accurate representation of that friendship and those instincts.”

A Perfect Circle formed in the late ‘90s with Keenan and Howerdel making up the core of the band with a number of well-known musicians having recorded and/or toured with the outfit including James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins), Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age, Failure), Paz Lenchantin (Entrance Band, Zwan), Jeordie White (Marilyn Manson), Josh Freese (The Vandals, Devo) and Tim Alexander (Primus).

The band released their first album, Mer de Noms in 2000, which debuted in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Top 200 and quickly established the group as one of rock music’s biggest bands of the new millennium.  Following extensive international touring, A Perfect Circle began work on Thirteenth Step which saw a late 2003 release and landed at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 in its debut week.

The outfit’s third release, a covers’ album titled eMOTIVe, was released on Election Day 2004 and featured re-imagined versions of songs by a varied group of artists including John Lennon, Black Flag, Joni Mitchell and Devo. Following the release of eMOTIVe, Keenan and Howerdel focused on their individual projects with Keenan working on TOOL’s 10,000 Days and launching the multimedia electro-rock outfit Puscifer and Howerdel creating Ashes Divide.  A Perfect Circle has sold over five million albums worldwide.

A Perfect Circle Live - Box Set - 2013 - promo pic

A Perfect Circle also recently announced the release of a limited edition box set titled A Perfect Circle Live: Featuring Stone And Echo.  The collection, which focuses on the band’s live outings from 2010-2011 includes a full-length DVD of the outfit’s August 2011 Red Rock’s concert (with accompanying audio) as well as a 3-cd collection of live releases, one dedicated to each of the three studio albums from the band’s discography.   The collection is available on Nov. 26, with more information available via A Perfect Circle’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/aperfectcircle).

NYC’s WISE GIRL Release Awaited Debut Album, “You’ll Just Have to Wait”

Posted in Music, rock albums, rock and roll, rock bands, rock music, rock music news, rock music videos, rock singles with tags , , , , , , on September 12, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Wise Girl - You'll Just Have To Wait - promo cover pic

Pop Rock Band Leads with Singles “Stuck in This” and “You’ll Just Have to Wait” 

____________________________________________

Los Angeles, CA – Fresh off the success of their 3-song EP in 2012, the pop/rock ensemble, Wise Girl is transcending with their debut full length album, You’ll Just Have to Wait. Complete with rock and roll beats, spunky pop melodies and Weitz’s classic bold voice, You’ll Just Have to Wait has something for everyone. Last month, the band teased their album by releasing the first single “Stuck in This” via social networking properties, receiving an overwhelming response and praise from fans. “Stuck in This” was merely the tip of the iceberg for this emerging band, as they unleash their best work to date with the release of You’ll Just Have to Wait, now available on iTunes.

After the unexpected admiration of their first EP, Wise Girl was determined to return to the studio to build upon their feat and in-turn have created 10-original tracks that encompass their blood, sweat and tears. Lead singer Abby Weitz calls the album “a big step towards Wise Girl’s future. We put a lot of time and effort into this album and the three of us are really proud of what we have achieved. It brought us a lot closer as a band and we all admire and respect each other’s musicianship even more so than before”.

Below, crank up, listen to and watch So Broken. Whoa!!

“Stuck in This,” the lead single features Weitz’s virtuous vocals, which are complemented by the fiery guitar riffs of Chris Fasulo and vigorous drums from Harry Keithline. The infectious title track “You’ll Just Have to Wait” highlights Weitz’s signature and unparalleled melodies with her witty lyrics. Digging deep, Weitz penned a snapshot of her life, from love lost and friendships soiled to internal conflict, leaving a piece of her heart in each track. Weitz tells fans that the album comes from “something so heart wrenching, turned into something positive. All of the pain that I went through was worth it because of the outcome; some of my favorite songs that I’ve ever written.”

Wise Girl - promo band pic - 2013 - #33

The debut album from the pop/rock band was produced by guitarist Chris Fasulo and written by singer/guitarist Abby Weitz. Authentic lyrics, wit and unexpected tonalities color this band’s uniquely intricate songs. The idea of performing music for a living has been the dream of each member since childhood. Abby and Chris both picked up the guitar at age thirteen, while Harry picked up the sticks at age eight.

PALMS – This Supergroup Creates An Everlasting Debut Album

Posted in ambient music, atmospheric music, Hard Rock, Music, rock albums, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on August 3, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Palms - album cover promo pic

5 METAL Fists Out Of 5!

Metal Fists 5 Metal Odyssey

PALMS – I approached this debut album from PALMS with every intention to be non-bias, due to my very high appreciation towards ISIS and Deftones. Before I heard even a single note from PALMS, I was convinced this album had to be good. I was wrong. This debut album from PALMS is spectacular! My long withdrawal of ISIS on permanent hiatus is now over and Chino Moreno is lead vocalist! Who would ever imagine this? Not me.

Do not panic that there are (only) 6 songs on their debut; there exists 45 minutes and 37 seconds of atmospheric, melodic, captivating, ambient coated Rock meets Hard Rock bliss; with each song to savor for the next century or more! The lyrics fit these songs superbly. Any Rock connoisseur knows these guys don’t have to prove a thing to anyone regarding their talent, still, my God almighty have they pushed the envelope when it comes to expanding on the mood, energy and mystical experience of music.

PALMS is like ISIS meets Pink Floyd meets U2 meets the production savvy of Jeff Lynne and David Gilmour meets… well… PALMS are so keen on making their songs layered with musical surprises that it will take me another 100 listens or more to catch them all. I’ve listened to this PALMS debut so many times this Summer that it will forever be linked to this season by me.

I honestly cannot recommend this album more highly. ISIS and Deftones fans will (I believe) agree. For those on the fence, jump off and experience a diamond-studded musical journey with PALMS. Metal be thy name.

Tommy Bolin ‘Whirlwind’ will be released in both a beautiful 8-panel, 2-CD digipak and a 2-LP gatefold vinyl set.

The tracks on ‘Whirlwind’ are remarkable because they give you a glimpse into the amazing diversity Tommy was capable of.”

’77 – Debuts New Song And Cover Art For “Maximum Rock n’ Roll”

'77 - promo band pic - 2013 - #1

Spanish Hard Rock bruisers ’77 have debuted the first track off their upcoming third full-length album, Maximum Rock n’ Roll. The song, entitled Down and Dirty, is streaming now:

’77 had the following to say regarding Maximum Rock n’ Roll:

“We obviously wrote music in typical ’77 fashion  such as ‘Down and Dirty’ or ‘Stay away from Water,’ tunes that will make you bang your head and raise your fist in the air while singing the choruses. Once more we recorded live in the studio, supervised by Fred Estby this time behind the mics and mixing desk, and we are really happy with the sound we got: no tricks, no FX; just Maximum Rock and Roll played as loud as possible.”

The band has also unveiled the cover art, designed by urban artist and AC/DC enthusiast Abdul Vas, for Maximum Rock n’ Roll:

Maximum Rock n’ Roll was recorded at Gutterview Recorders, in Stockholm from the 17th to the 28th of March and was produced by Fred Estby and Nicke Andersson. The album was mastered by Hoffe at Cosmos Mastering, Stockholm. Maximum Rock n’ Roll is set for a fall 2013 North American release, via Listenable Records.

EVILYN STRANGE ARE MOURNING PHOEBE – It’s been a long time coming…

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, hard rock news, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, rock bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on July 17, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Evilyn Strange - Mourning Phoebe - promo cover pic

New Album Mourning Phoebe Is Out Now, Via Thirteen 772 Music

____________________________________

From EVILYN STRANGE:

The path trodden by most UK Rock bands since the
glory days of The Beatles, Sabbath, Maiden, Priest, The Who, Purple
and Zeppelin has been a lonely one. Punk cleared the way for Duran
Duran, Culture Club, Wham! and ultimately Rick Astley… Vive la
Revolution!

Shunned in their home country it wasn’t easy for Brits playing
‘classic rock’.  Even a minor blip in the mid to late 80′s only
produced success for Whitesnake (who sacked their British members) and
Def Leppard. Bands like FM, The Quireboys, and Thunder had to take a
back seat to American rockers such as Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Poison,
Metallica, and Guns N’ Roses.  Said UK bands then had to watch as
grunge flooded the plains leaving them up sh*t creek without even a
raft, let alone paddle.  As this happened the UK looked to Peter
Andre, Take That and eventually The Spice Girls as its major players.

Evilyn Strange have been around since the Britpop darlings Suede,
Blur, Radiohead, Pulp and Oasis.  Laughed at by the press since day
one for having long hair and playing guitar solo’s it hasn’t been easy
for the Anglo Swedish trio.  Did they care? As Adam Ant once said,
‘Ridicule is nothing to be scared of…’

So here’s Mourning Phoebe, the flawed (and all the more perfect for
it) album by the type of band that the UK doesn’t want to exist.  They
won’t win a Brit Award like Boyzone, and they will NEVER be cool
enough to appear on MTV… but they can just about live with
that.

Kind regards,

Grandpa Strange.

Ray Manzarek & Roy Rogers ‘Twisted Tales’ CD Now Available!

Posted in blues rock, classic rock, Music, rock albums, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on June 20, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Ray Manzarek - Roy Rogers - Twisted Tales - promo cover pic

In our last meeting together before his passing, Ray and I were both very excited about the upcoming release of ‘Twisted Tales’. We signed off on the artwork and agreed that it should be released sooner than later. So, honoring that decision, I have proceeded with the release. We both were proud of this recording and hope that people enjoy it. This recording is dedicated to Ray’s memory- Roy Rogers 

__________________________________________

Nevada City, CA – Ray Manzarek and Roy Rogers have received no shortage of kudos since they first recorded together five years ago. Ray Manzarek’s signature keyboard sound was a cornerstone of The Doors – one of the most iconic rock bands of the 60’s. An inductee into the R&R Hall of Fame – he certainly needs no introduction. In the pantheon of music, The Doors’ music continues to be one of the most revered rock song catalogs of any band. Slide guitarist Roy Rogers has been lauded not only for his own recordings but for his long-time collaboration with harmonica master Norton Buffalo as well as his producing of 4 CD projects for blues icon John Lee Hooker and folk legend Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. He is well known worldwide for his mastery of slide guitar and has received 8 Grammy nominations for his work as artist and producer.

In 2011 Manzarek-Rogers released ‘Translucent Blues’- a blues-rock collection of songs tinged with poetry and literary references. The project reached #1 on the Americana Roots chart and debuted at #6 on the Billboard blues chart. The lyrical contributions came from such diverse co-writers as Jim Carroll, Warren Zevon and poet Michael McClure, among others. ‘Twisted Tales’ draws from some of those same writers to tell very different stories. Featured musicians are Kevin Hayes on drums, formerly with the Robert Cray Band; Steve Evans on bass who has performed with the Elvin Bishop Band; and George Brooks on saxophones, who has performed with John McLaughlin and Zakir Hussain.

____________________________________

The new release is a collaboration of keyboard and guitar sounds that merge with stories, images and art. These two amazing musicians create an intoxicating, plush sound that is – more than unique. Manzarek and Rogers are seemingly an odd pairing – but their new recording unleashes a stunning musical landscape for the listener – this music will ‘take you for a ride’… There is a full-length documentary film to be released examining their unique collaboration and friendship in depth this fall.

‘Twisted Tales’ is destined to become a classic, not only as Ray Manzarek’s last recording, but also as a definitive work of two great artists. Available at www.manzarekrogersband.com/ Amazon and iTunes and retailers nationwide.

Hawkwind Legend Nik Turner Releases New Single & Video “Fallen Angel STS-51-L” From His Forthcoming New Album

Posted in classic rock, classic rock bands, Hard Rock, hard rock bands, hard rock news, Music, psych-rock, psychedelic rock with tags , , , , , , on June 15, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Nik Turner - Fallen Angels - promo cover pic

Los Angeles, CA – In the spirit of such classic tracks as Master Of The Universe and Silver Machine, legendary Hawkwind member Nik Turner will be releasing a new single Fallen Angel STS-51-L digitally on July 2, 2013 and a limited edition 7-inch vinyl (only 500 pressed) on July 14th. Making this event even more exciting, a mind-bending video will accompany the single featuring footage from Nik’s recent performance at The Echoplex in Los Angeles! The single begins the countdown to the launch of Turner’s highly anticipated full-length album, Space Gypsy, which will feature guest appearances by Steve Hillage of Gong and former Hawkwind bandmate Simon House!

Nik Turner was a founding member of Hawkwind during what has been considered their most commercially successful and critically acclaimed period from 1970 to 1976. He wrote/co-wrote some of the group’s most popular songs such as Brainstorm and Master Of The Universe, which was recently used in an ad campaign for Ford’s new B-Max car. Turner also made a rare U.S. appearance at this year’s SXSW festival with his new band, which includes former UK Sub Nicky Garratt and Jürgen Engler of German industrial band Die Krupps. The band entered the studio to record the new full-length album shortly after.

Listen to and watch below, the music video for:

 Fallen Angel STS-51-L:

Of the first offering from the new album, Nik Turner says: “This single is the epitome of epiphanic, orgasmic, cathartic embodiment of my space dreams, become one man’s reality, exploding into space. Expect lots more on this awesome album”.

Nick Deriso of Something Else Reviews says: “ ‘Fallen Angel STS-51-L’ is prog rock for those who want to go to the very edge of the universe, then peer so far out that you risk falling ass over teakettle into inky blackness.”

PUSCIFER SET AUGUST 27th RELEASE DATE FOR “ALL RE-MIXED UP”

Puscifer - All Re-Mixed Up - promo cover pic

CONDITIONS OF MY PAROLE REMIXERS INCLUDE SIR MIX –A-LOT AND THIS MORTAL COIL’S JOHN FRYER

________________________________________

June 3, 2013, Jerome, Ariz. – Puscifer have set an Aug. 27th release date for All Re-Mixed Up, a track-for-track remix album of the band’s sophomore release Conditions of My Parole.

All Re-Mixed Up is the continuation of the Puscifer tradition to release alternate versions, reworks, and remixes of what we consider initial thoughts,” explained Maynard James Keenan.  “For instance, Carina Round was nervous about how to approach her version of ‘Telling Ghosts.’ Mat Mitchell put her at ease by asking her to think of it as a song half written, advising her to ‘now write the other half.’ It’s extremely liberating in the digital age to approach composing and creating in this manner. Infinite paths to explore, reinterpret, and re-present.”

______________________________________

All Re-Mixed Up Track Listing and Remixers:

1. Monsters (Deconstruct) remixed by Mat Mitchell

2. The Green Valley (Verde River Maestro 507 mix) remixed by Rani Sharone   (Stolen Babies)

3. Monsoons (JLE Motorik mix) remixed by Josh Eustis

4. Telling Ghosts (Giorgia O’Queef mix) remixed by Carina Round

5. Horizons (Dream of a Lie remix) by John Fryer (This Mortal Coil)

6. Man Overboard (11AD remix) by Alain Johannes

7. Toma (Burn Out remix) by Five Knives

8. The Rapture (JLE Needs Service mix) by Josh Eustis

9. Conditions of My Parole (F.U.B.A.R. remix) by Sir Mix-A-Lot

10. The Weaver (Virtual Vacuum remix) by Aaron Harris (PALMS)

11. Oceans (Green Mussel Mix) by Zac Rae

12. Tumbleweed (Delusions of Grandeur mix) by The Beta Machine

______________________________________

All Re-Mixed Up comes on the heels of an incredibly busy period for the electro-rock outfit.  The band recently released the seven-song EP Donkey Punch The Night, which features covers of Queen’sBohemian Rhapsody” (see the video here: http://youtu.be/LjCu0UwDMNM) and Accept’sBalls To The Wall” as well as new songs “Breathe” and “Dear Brother.”

Puscifer, who are known for their all-encompassing live performances that integrate a variety of on-stage props and pre-recorded video pieces, performed at Coachella 2013, and made their first international outings at Australia’s Soundwave Festival and enthralled South American crowds at Lollapalooza Brazil and Chile.
