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.

“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.
