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

MONSTER TRUCK – Debut S/T EP From 2010 Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Monster Truck - Debut S:T EP - promo cover pic - 2010

4 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

MONSTER TRUCK – Hamilton, Ontario’s Monster Truck had a breakthrough year in 2013, with their first full-length: Furiosity. With an ever-growing fan base coinciding with raving album and concert reviews, Monster Truck is surely one of the finest exports from Canada next to bacon. A supporting role, during the Summer of 2013, to Rock the live stage for Alice In Chains’ Canadian tour trek is certainly a bad-ass badge of honor as well!

Looking back to 2010, the debut, S/T EP from Monster Truck was born. Self released and produced by Gus Van Go & Werner F, the four songs on this EP are solid fingerprints of Heavy Rock ‘N Roll which draws influences from Classic Rock, Classic Hard Rock and (from what my ears here as) Southern Rock. I cannot help embracing the raw and down-to-earth Heavy Rockin’ sound of this Monster Truck EP! These seasoned musicians were paving their path to Rockin’ fame with this EP and that is now a Rockin’ fact!

_________________________

Brandon Bliss on the organ/keys is reason enough for any classic Deep Purple and/or Jon Lord fan to smile in appreciation. Jon Harvey (bass and lead vocals) sounds like his voice was born to be heard on vinyl, with so many shades of natural born talent about it. Steve Kiely (drums & vocals) and  Jeremy Widerman (guitar & vocals) complete this Monster Truck story and their debut EP. Understand, that ALL four songs on this EP have played out as an immense launching pad for this (now) world-known band!

Monster Truck plays their Heavy Rock ‘N Roll with both relevance and a two-way ticket on the Classic Rock time machine. It does suck when I return and the Monster Truck songs do come to a close; however, the repeat arrow to hear this band again and again is what makes life so damn good. Metal be thy name. – Stone

I LOVE RICH – “Respect The Rich” Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

I Love Rich - Respect The Rich - promo cover pic - 2014

4 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4

I LOVE RICH – It happened a couple of weeks ago. I was minding my own business, while checking out my email inbox. Then I saw it. Rich, the frontman  for “I Love Rich” wanted to know if I would like a copy of his band’s new CD to review: Respect The Rich. The CD arrived in the mail some days later. I opened the package and stared at this fun looking CD cover art and thought, as the legendary Mick Jagger would sing: it’s only Rock And Roll (but I like it).

Before this historical email from Rich, I never heard of his band before. Heck, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. The last thing I need in my Metal life right now is a group of Rock And Roll troublemakers, from Chicago, messing with me to review their new CD. I felt worry overcome me, slightly. I slapped in and listened to this Respect The Rich CD into my laptop; then eventually into my home stereo. Both results were the same. I LOVE RICH ROCKS!!

One thing is for certain, Rich and his band have received an obvious influence from early 70’s KISS. That’s a very good thing too. Rich actually has a cool resemblance, vocally, to the legendary Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons. In my Metal opinion, that is. Respect The Rich have 6 original songs on their new CD, with 2 added alternate versions of (You’re So Hot) I’m Gonna Fuck You With The Lights On. It’s honestly a fascinating song and Rocks so well! A true sing-along Hard Rock song if I’ve ever heard one.

I Love Rich plays their Hard Rock with conviction and there’s no smoke or mirrors about their sound or songs. Hell, Classic Rock and red-blooded Hard Rockers should get a dizzying kick out of this band! I Love Rich is a band that makes me proud to live in the Mid West. Just like my other Mid West, DIY band favorites, I Love Rich are contributing to the Rock And Roll cause in a very splendid way, indeed. ALL of the songs on Respect The Rich flat-out Rock and I would love to see I Love Rich in a live setting. Hell yes, I would.

With a BIG guitar driven sound, impressive vocals and kick-ass musicianship all-around, I Love Rich have delivered to me a memorable CD! You can’t kill blue-collar Rock And Roll and I Love Rich are proof positive of this. Life can be filled with Rockin’ surprises and that’s why I do check my email inbox everyday. A talented and underground Rock And Roll band that’s been paying their dues, going on 2 decades, I cannot resist respecting. I Love Rich and their Midwest Rock And Roll kicks legitimate ass. Metal be thy name. – Stone
