Black Sabbath - Guitar World - March - 2015 - #02BSMO

As reported by Guitar World:

Guitar World’s March 2015 issue focuses on Black Sabbath’s Tony, Geezer, and Ozzy as they spill the details on drugs, debauchery, and some damned good riffs!

First, Black Sabbath’s Iron Men, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler recall the rise and fall of the first – and greatest – incarnation of heavy metal’s originators. Then, the Ozz Man tells the stories behind 10 classic Black Sabbath tracks, including “Paranoid,” “Fairies Wear Boots,” “Planet Caravan,” and “Iron Man.”

Also, Guitar World picks the best of the original lineup tracks – from “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath” and “Supernaut” to “Sweet Leaf” and “Dirty Women.”

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!
