Rainbow - The Singles Box Set - 1975-1986 - promo cover pic - 2014

The box set gathers all of Rainbow’s classic singles

__________________________

As one of the cornerstones of British Rock, Rainbow, led by the never-predictable but ever-astonishing guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, became synonymous with some of the most well-regarded and popular charting Rock songs of the seventies and eighties. From the mystic and quasi-religious ‘Man On A Silver Mountain’ to the solid gold anthems of ‘All Night Long’, ‘Long Live Rock ‘N’ Roll’ and ‘Since You Been Gone’, each year in the decade of Rainbow was marked by some of the best songs and performances captured both on record and in-concert.

The box set gathers all of the band’s classic singles from the era in replicas of the original release, alongside a book featuring details on each of the titles.

Passing through the band were some of the best the genre had to offer. Vocalists Ronnie James Dio and Graham Bonnet, bass player and producer Roger Glover and drummer Cozy Powell, each brought their individual talent to the table to record some of Rock’s best-loved Hard Rock on those timeless singles.

MOTION DEVICE And Their Cover Song Of Black Sabbath’s “Heaven And Hell”: Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on November 2, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Motion Device - promo band pic - #11 - 2013

MOTION DEVICE – I was first introduced to Bolton, Ontario, Canada’s Motion Device via twitter earlier this year. We’ll tweet back and forth, like any twitter friends do; only I consider Motion Device more than just twitter buddies. I look upon Motion Device as an inspiration and a burning flame of sincerity, maturity and confidence that I cannot resist embracing from such a devoted and talented young band. The allegiance to Heavy Metal’s pioneers that Motion Device is influenced by, through their songs, makes me very proud.

Lead vocalist Sara Menoudakis is going on 12 years of age and she sings with such a determined and confident manner; that it’s all very impressive to hear. Amazing. Sara’s 15-year-old sister (6 string bassist & keyboardist) Andrea Menoudakis is nothing short of inspirational in her own right; Andrea lives each day of her life with a seizure disorder known as epilepsy, (in the form of absence seizures). Andrea’s musical talents would never reveal this, until it was made known by her and the band. I absolutely love the piano intro and outro that Andrea plays on their cover of Heaven And Hell; it’s a beautiful added touch to such an iconic song.

Motion Device is rounded out by Sara and Andrea’s 13-year-old brother (drummer) David Menoudakis, 19-year-old cousin (electric & acoustic guitarist) Josh Marrocco and 19-year-old family friend (guitarist & bassist) Alex Defrancesco. I honestly see an incredible future for these young and clever musicians. The Metal sky is the limit for Motion Device and I will be cheering heavily for them, as they continue forward on their musical journey. Metal be thy name.

Motion Device, along with their new cover song of Black Sabbath’s Heaven And Hell is:

Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Wendy Dio – Once Again Raising Money For The Brittany Foundation And Needs Your Support!

As reported on The Official Ronnie James Dio Fan Page Facebook:

FROM WENDY DIO:

Dear Friends,

As you all know, Ronnie and I have always been animal lovers and our favorite charity is The Brittany Foundation, as 100% of the monies raised goes to feed and house the dogs. Some of you may remember that three years ago, I spent a Day in Their Paws in a cage with two adorable dogs, trying to raise money and get them adopted. This was one of the last public appearances Ronnie made before his untimely passing.

This year I am going in the cage again with Timka and Tramp to raise money for The Brittany Foundation. I stay in the cage for 24 hours or until I have raised the money for freedom. It costs a dollar a minute for my freedom. I am asking for your help.

Please go to http://www.brittanyfoundationonline.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=48&Itemid=67 and scroll down to my picture with Timka and Tramp, and click the button to donate. We would love to see any of you that would like to join us.

I would like to say a big “thank you” to you all, and as Ronnie would say, “You Rock!”

Wendy Dio
