Stone - Scott Coverdale - Top 10 Albums Of 2015 - promo banner - 2015 - #MO33MDILFNSMSTO

Stone Says:

2015 was a very enjoyable year for me, when it came to Metal and Hard Rock releases. On a personal note, 2015 was one of my saddest years, due to the passing of my Father this December and then Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead left us. May they both rest in peace. Once again, I’ve told myself to cherish life and the music that brings us together. I hope you all will share my sentiment.

On an upbeat note, I did compile my list of Top 10 Hard Rock And Metal Albums Of 2015. My Metal Brother and Metal Odyssey’s staff researcher Scott Coverdale also has compiled his Top 10 Of 2015 as well, on this same post! Whoa! My love for Classic Rock is shown on my Top 10 list with Europe and FM; both bands released what probably are their finest albums ever, in my opinion. My #1 is Enforcer From Beyond, a Metal album I consider to be beyond incredible!

My Top 10 list would never be complete without the entries of Venom and Motörhead; both bands released freaking killer albums this past year and I’ll forever recommend them both! Please check out Iron Kingdom and Fallen Angels when you can, both of these underground Metal bands deserve ALL the praise I can possibly give them and they are in my Top 10! Thank you for visiting Metal Odyssey, Happy Metal New Year and Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Scott Coverdale Says:

This past year happened to be one of the best years in music for me in decades. Many of my favorite bands that were cranked-up on my car stereo back in 1986 were once again being cranked-up in 2015. With the likes of Whitesnake, Def Leppard, and Iron Maiden releasing great studio albums this year, it was really difficult coming up with my Top 10 for this year. Before I list my Top 2015 Albums Of The Year, I would like to shout out a huge THANK YOU to one of the Greatest Bands of all time… MÖTLEY CRÜE.

I was lucky enough to see THE CRÜE this past summer for the last time, on their Farewell Tour. It was kind of a bitter-sweet night for me, at this concert. On the one hand I was having a great time taking in the show with my high school buddies, just like we did at the “Theatre Of Pain” concert back in the day, while at the same time saying Good bye to one of my all-time favorite bands wasn’t easy. Thank You!!! – Scott Coverdale

ON TOP “Topless” – A Metal Odyssey Album Review

On Top - Topless - promo album EP cover pic - 2015 - #0621MOSLTSLN

4.5 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metal fists - 4.5 - album reviews metal odyssey

ON TOP have released a 4 song EP this Summer that I really want to let you all know about. This EP is titled Topless and it flat-out has rocked my eyeballs out! Seriously. Alright, I still have my eyeballs in place yet you get my point. All 4 songs are just soaked through with all that delicious Hard Rock energy that I embrace enthusiastically! Fans from Mötley Crüe to Black Tora are certain to enjoy the Hard Rock that ON TOP plays, in my honest Metal opinion.

Jaron Gulino (vocals & bass) has a voice that isn’t carbon copied from the other trillion Hard Rock vocalists in Modern Hard Rock today. (Phew). ON TOP have recorded songs with an attitude that has let me know they are ready for prime time. Danny Piselli (drums & vocals) and Brian Davis (guitars & vocals) round out this enthusiastic power trio from the East Coast. Additional backing vocals were contributed by Damian Montecarlo.

Yes, I really dig this album cover for Topless. What else did you expect me to say? C’mon, now.

This EP is not over-polished and ON TOP play no silly ballads on this EP too! Yeah! On TOP’s previous 2 EP’s, Top Heavy (2011) and Top To Bottom (2014) are both freaking cool to seek out too; this band has not disappointed me on any release! Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Support And Purchase Some ON TOP Hard Rock And Merch, Below! Whoa!

ON TOP TOPLESS – Track List:

  1. Lie to Me
  2. Crazy
  3. 282
  4. Got Me Runnin’

All Them Witches - Dying Surfer Meets His Maker - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #MMSSTO993333


LOS ANGELES, Aug. 12, 2015 – All Them Witches, the Nashville psych-rock quartet whose recent Bonnaroo debut was heralded by Fuse, American Songwriter, Consequence of Sound and the Nashville Scene, release their label debut, Dying Surfer Meets His Maker, on Oct. 30th via New West Records.

Brooklyn Vegan, who dubbed the outfit’s 2014 self-released album, Lightning at the Door, “a heady brew of swirling tones and heavy blue-eyed blues rock,” are streaming the new song “Dirt Preachers”: The song is one of the nine new tracks recorded during the band’s seclusion at a remote cabin in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.

All Them Witches - Dying Surfer Meets His Maker - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #MMSSTO993333

“You couldn’t hardly walk in there, dodging cables, mics and guitars,” Parks says of the small space, “the cabin was a wreck. We immediately got up there, unloaded our 15 seater van and a trailer packed to the brim with gear, and started moving things around, set up amps, and a mixing board.” They recorded much of the album live, but used the studio as an instrument in itself, helmed by producer Mikey Allred and McLeod. The location, Parks says, also had an influence on the feel of the album. “Pigeon Forge is tourist central, with Dollywood and moonshine distilleries, pancake houses, and Christmas stores. But our cabin was up on the mountain. We were the only ones there. We didn’t have to worry about anyone calling us in for being loud. It was quiet. In the morning, the mist would be hanging over the city, then it would clear up and you’d see all these terrible tourist shops. It was nice to know we didn’t have to be a part of it. There’s a duality that happens throughout this record, that of the solitude of the mountain and the absolute Babylon that is Pigeon Forge.”

Heavy, heady and hypnotic, All Them Witches concoct a powerful and potent psychedelic sound that fuses bluesy soul, Southern swagger and thunderous hard rock. With their transfixing releases and a jam-filled live show where no two shows are the same, the band has amassed a devoted following and have become something of a sensation in the underground rock scene. “The band seemingly channels the churn of the universe and connects with a big, bad, uncaring cosmos,” wrote the Boston Globe, adding, “There is a primal ebb and flow at the core… The band’s mystic atmosphere, dark but not brutal, is the result of a tireless work ethic, a grueling tour schedule, and a tape trader’s compulsion for documenting every show.”

Upcoming Tour Dates:

September 12 Nashville, TN Live on the Green
September 13 St. Louis, MO LouFest
September 24 Bloomington, IN The Bishop
September 25 Cincinnati, OH MidPoint Music Festival
October 3-4 Louisville, KY Louder than Life Festival
October 25 Los Angeles, CA El Rey Theatre (w/Kadavar and The Shrine)

More tour dates to come.

Baroque Danish Metal Stars ROYAL HUNT To Return With Brand New album “Devil’s Dozen” – Out On August 21st, via Frontiers Music SRL!

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock bands, melodic rock, Music, rock music with tags , , , on July 10, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Royal Hunt - promo band pic - 2015 - #0033MOKGNSMS33

From Frontiers Music SRL:

Frontiers Music SRL is excited to announce the release of the brand new studio album from ROYAL HUNT entitled “Devil’s Dozen” on August 21st in Europe and North America.

With keyboardist and songwriter André Andersen still at the helm, ROYAL HUNT have once again created an album that combines the basic sound and core values of classic rock with progressive rock and more current musical elements. After selling approximately 1.7 million albums globally and touring the world numerous times, the band’s still going strong…and now gets to release their 13th studio album entitled “The Devil´s Dozen”.

André Andersen says: “We´re very pleased to be able to present our new, thirteenth studio album. While staying on course with all traditional Royal Hunt´s  musical values this one contains quite a bit of variety – from an up-tempo, double kick driven “May You Never (Walk Alone)” to the bluesy “Heart On A Platter” and probably our best ballad to date – “Until The Day”.  Counting in Royal Hunt´s usual attention to details – playing wise as well as production wise – I´m sure that any fan of symphonic/melodic yet hard rocking music will be pleased with our latest offering.”

Royal Hunt - Devils Dozen - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #33033GLLEOFMSWL33OT

The new recording stays true to the original, larger-than-life Royal Hunt sound, with imaginative instrumentation, intricate arrangements, soaring vocals and catchy, massive choruses. Yet, the addition of classical musicians/instruments and contemporary, modern-day production elements move to twist the outcome into a unique sonic palette. The album is chock full of carefully crafted songs, recorded and mixed by a team who combined crystal clear sonics with a weighty punch.

Featuring once again the talents of the awesome US singer DC Cooper – who, after numerous requests from fans and promoters worldwide decided to reunite with the band in 2011 – Royal Hunt features – besides André Andersen on keyboards – long time member Andreas Passmark on bass, Jonas Larsen on guitar and new drummer Andreas Habo Johansson (ex Narnia). Royal Rock… no substitutes!

“Devil’s Dozen” tracklisting: So Right So Wrong; May You Never (Walk Alone); Heart On A Platter; A Tear In The Rain; Until The Day; Riches To Rags; Way Too Late; How Do You Know (bonus track).


DC Cooper – vocals

Andre Andersen – keyboards

Andreas Passmark – bass

Veronica “The V” Freeman‘s forthcoming debut studio album, NOW OR NEVER, has a new release date of July 24th, 2015, via Frontiers Music srl.

Royal Thunder - Time Machine - Video Image Promo Pic - 2015

“…the contemporary hard-rock equivalent of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors…” – Stereogum

“a stunning hard-rock record that examines what happens after a breakup of any kind.” – NPR


April 23, 2015, Philadelphia – Royal Thunder debut the video for Time Machine, from their recently released album, Crooked Doors, via Rolling Stone:

The video was directed by J.P. Bradburn who also worked with the band on their video for “Blue.” NPR said of the song, “’Time Machine’ moves with the stubborn resolve of a tightrope walker on a windy day: The song heaves along with intertwining guitars and the soulful vocal of Parsonz, who seems more aware of her dynamic abilities than ever.”

The band has been sharing behind-the-scenes footage filmed during the making of Crooked Doors, as well as a newly released clip where they discuss the individual tracks on the album. The first two in the track-by-track series of webisodes can be seen below:

Crooked Doors was released earlier this month, with Stereogum calling the album “the hard rock equivalent of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors.” Entertainment Weekly said Crooked Doors “leans on its substantial pop chops. Tracks like ‘Glow’ are more Heart than Led Zep, which is not a bad thing at all.” Metal Hammer UK recently nominated the band for “Best Underground Band” in their annual Golden Gods’ Awards.

BEAUVOIR FREE “American Trash” – Studio Album Releasing First Week Of June, Via Frontiers Music Srl

American Trash - Beauvoir Free - promo pic - 2015 - Frontiers - MO041415

From Frontiers Music Srl:

BEAUVOIR FREE recreate the magic of Crown of Thorns debut on AMERICAN TRASH – out on Frontiers in June.

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the release of AMERICAN TRASH, the hotly anticipated new album featuring Rock & Roll veterans Jean BEAUVOIR and Micki FREE, on June 3rd in Europe and June 7th in North America.

Best known as the driving force behind the legendary Crown of Thorns self-titled debut album in 1994, Jean Beauvoir and Micki Free’s collective credits read like a “who’s-who” Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, with a list of collaborations that includes the likes of the Ramones, KISS, Debbie Harry, Pretenders, John Waite, Lionel Richie, *NSYNC, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Bill Wyman, Carlos Santana and Prince to name but a few.

The duo both coincidentally moved back to LA in 2003 and re-connected. They discussed joining forces again for a new project and after a few shows in Europe in 2013, a deal with Frontiers was inked for a brand new album to be recorded in 2014.

The result is American Trash, an album that shaped up as “the continuation of the BEAUVOIR FREE sound as the writing team for the Crown of Thorns debut,” explains Jean Beauvoir. “When we write together there really is this magic. We know we want killer guitar riffs and major melodic chorus… and this is what turns out in our songs, in Beauvoir Free style.”

All the new songs came out like “rocking-babies” in the BEAUVOIR FREE fold. “…And all represent the sound only Jean and I create together. The “inimitable” sound of BEAUVOIR FREE,” tells Micki Free. Joining forces once again, Jean and Micki can truly unleash the magic that they can only create when they write together, of that there is no doubt!

“We both feel this CD is some of the best work we have done, right up their next to the Crown of Thorns debut” concludes Jean. “We want to get out on the road and bring it to the fans. We receive a lot of enquires of when are you guys coming back out on tour and people telling us they can’t wait to hear the new material. Frankly we can’t wait for our fans to hear American Trash as well!”

HOUSE OF LORDS “INDESTRUCTIBLE” – Releasing In Early June, Via Frontiers Music Srl

House Of Lords - Indestructible - promo album cover pic - 2015

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of HOUSE OF LORDS tenth studio album, aptly entitled INDESTRUCTIBLE on June 3rd in Europe, June 6th in the UK and June 7th in North America.

The new album shows once again what HOUSE OF LORDS stands for: powerful and heavy songs, with major hooks and melodies and grandiose arrangements. “The name Indestructible was chosen because we all felt that we have been through a lot in our long careers and what better way to say “Hey, I’m still Here” than by giving the cd a BOLD title,” says singer James Christian.

Indestructible features eleven brand new songs, which masterfully combine the best of Heavy and Melodic Hard Rock. “The album is heavier in the beginning, but we love songs that are both Melodic and Heavy” continues Christian, “and the idea was to fill the best of both on one cd without sounding like two different bands. I think we have accomplished that. A good example would be the song “Pillar of Salt” especially gives a good representation of how the new album sounds: a combination of heavy, melodic, and thoughtful lyrics. This song is one of my favorites!”

Besides being House of Lords tenth studio album, the new record sees the new line-up celebrating their first ten years together. “It is amazing to work with BJ, Chris and Jimi” tells James Christian, “they are all very aware of what HOUSE OF LORDS represents and they are committed to making records that complement the history of the band. No matter which HOUSE OF LORDS album you listen to, there is a common thread, which comes from the fact that the four of us are musically in sync. This is the real reason why we have been able to produce records of this calibre”.

House of Lords will exclusively appear at the Frontiers Rock Festival in Trezzo (MI) next Sunday, April 12 and start a European tour in September, with a very special surprise show to be announced. More details soon!

Indestructible track listing includes: Go To Hell; Indestructible; Pillar Of Salt; 100 Mph; Call My Bluff; We Will Always Be One; Die To Tell; Another Dawn; Eye Of The Storm; Ain’t Suicidal; Stand And Deliver.
