QUIET RIOT – Announces New Vocalist SEANN NICOLS For 2017

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 5, 2016 by Metal Odyssey


Los Angeles, CA, October 5th 2016 – QUIET RIOT is very pleased to introduce Seann Nicols (formerly of Adler’s Appetite) as their new vocalist starting in 2017. Quiet Riot are currently in the studio with Seann recording their forthcoming full length album of all new material, to be released on Frontiers Records in early 2017. They will also be releasing a music video, which will be the first QUIET RIOT music video since 1989. The band will kick off their tour on January 27 in Medina, Minnesota and will continue their touring schedule around the globe.

Vocalist Jizzy Pearl who is departing to concentrate full-time on his solo career will finish off the 2016 QUIET RIOT tour dates through December. Frankie Banali says the departure is amicable. “QUIET RIOT thanks Jizzy for a great three years and we wish him the very best.”

QUIET RIOT is a rock & roll phenomenon. Famously described as the first Heavy Metal band to top the pop chart at #1 on Billboard magazine, the Los Angeles quartet became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster 1983 smash album “Metal Health”. After several member changes, and three years after the untimely passing of original lead singer Kevin DuBrow in 2007, Frankie Banali, an original member of the 1982 Metal Health classic line up, continued the musical legacy of QUIET RIOT along with bassist Chuck Wright who has been in and out of the band since 1982, and guitarist Alex Grossi who has been in the band since 2004.

Ukrainian Power Metallers DEFIANT To Release “Time Isn’t Healing” In November

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 3, 2016 by Metal Odyssey


Ukrainian Power Metal quintet DEFIANT will release sophomore full-length album Time Isn’t Healing November 25. The album’s title track is streaming at this location or below:

Since its formation in 2008, DEFIANT‘s mission has been to enthrall fans with a brand of power metal that is as muscular as it is melodic. DEFIANT went on to release no less than three EPs and 2012’s full-length debut Masquerade, collectively laying the groundwork for what can only be called its magnum opus: Time Isn’t Healing. The crunching riffs and soaring leads of guitarist Andrey Turkovsky blend seamlessly with the epic, often breathtaking keyboard work of Victoria Terzieva, while Stanislav Proshkin‘s gritty yet tuneful vocals offer a captivating stamp of distinction. The clanging bass lines of Oleg Yakovlev and airtight drumming of Eugeniy Smolin form a robust rhythmic foundation.


It’s the quality and consistency of the songwriting that is perhaps most impressive about the new album. Whether the up-tempo Power Metal pummel of “Milestones of Time” or the mid-tempo elegance of “According to the Acts,” Time Isn’t Healing sinks the hooks in deep and keeps the listener in a state of rapt attention from beginning to end.

Fans of HELLOWEEN, RAGE and similar icons of the genre are strongly encouraged to give this one a spin.
