Posted in classic rock, classic rock news, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

For The 13-Track Collection, The Legendary Guitarist And Hollywood Vampires Co-Founder Record A Range Of Covers That Touch On Motown, The Beach Boys, John Lennon, The Velvet Underground, Killing Joke, And More, Along with Two Depp Original Compositions

First Single, The Depp Original “This Is A Song For Miss Hedy Lamarr” Is Out Today

Jeff Beck And Johnny Depp Are Currently On Tour In Europe Through July 25th

LOS ANGELES – Jeff Beck found a kindred spirit in Johnny Depp when the two met in 2016. They bonded quickly over cars and guitars and spent most of their time together trying to make each other laugh. At the same time, Beck’s appreciation grew for Depp’s serious songwriting skills and his ear for music. That talent and their chemistry convinced Beck they should make an album together.

Depp agreed and they started in 2019. Over the next three years, they recorded a mix of Depp originals along with a wide range of covers that touches on everything from Celtic and Motown to the Beach Boys and Killing Joke. In 2020, during the pandemic, they previewed their collaboration with their well-timed cover of John Lennon’s “Isolation.” 

The duo’s 13-track album, dubbed 18, will arrive on July 15. Beck explains the album title: “When Johnny and I started playing together, it really ignited our youthful spirit and creativity. We would joke about how we felt 18 again so that just became the album title too.”

18 will be available on CD and digitally, with a 180-gram black vinyl version coming on September 30. The cover features an illustration of Beck and Depp as 18-year-olds that was drawn and designed by Beck’s wife Sandra. 

Leading up to the release of 18, Beck has launched a European tour, with Depp as a special guest, which will conclude on July 25 at L’Olympia in Paris.

For the last 12 years Depp has recorded and toured with the Hollywood Vampires, a band he started with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry. The supergroup has released two studio albums that include guest appearances by some of rock’s biggest names: Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, and Joe Walsh. The list also includes Beck, who played guitar on “Welcome To Bushwackers,” a song on Rise, the Vampires’ second album, which came out in 2019.

Soon after, Depp asked Beck to play lead on a tune he’d written, the album’s first single “This Is A Song For Miss Hedy Lamarr,” an homage to the actress/inventor. Beck says it was the catalyst for the collaboration and is one of his favorite songs on the new album. “I was blown away by it,” he says. “That song is one of the reasons I asked him to make an album with me.” The track is available today digitally, along with an accompanying music video. Click here to view now.

Of Beck, Depp adds, “It’s an extraordinary honor to play and write music with Jeff, one of the true greats and someone I am now privileged enough to call my brother.”

In the studio, Beck says he and Depp challenged each other to leave their comfort zones with the songs they chose to cover. “I haven’t had another creative partner like him for ages,” Beck says. “He was a major force on this record. I just hope people will take him seriously as a musician because it’s a hard thing for some people to accept that Johnny Depp can sing rock and roll.”

Depp justifies Beck’s faith on the new album by showing off his incredible emotional range on songs like The Velvet Underground’s “Venus In Furs,” the Everly Brothers’ ballad “Let It Be Me” and Marvin Gaye’s soul classic “What’s Going On.” On the instrumentals, Beck demonstrates why he’s universally revered as a guitar god with stunning versions of Davy Spillane’s “Midnight Walker” and two songs from the Beach Boys’ masterpiece, Pet Sounds – “Caroline, No” and “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder).”

Finnish Hard Rock Band RIMBACHER Hits The Core Essence Of Rock music

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, hard rock bands, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, music videos, news with tags , , , , , , , , on June 16, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Last Breath Of Rock ’N’ Roll is a retrospective to the moment when you heard Rock music for the first time.

Rimbacher is a band from central Finland that has built it’s foundations to traditional 80’s rock music. During spring 2022 the band has released couple of singles from their upcoming debut album. “Cocaine Eyes & Nicotine Stains” introduce the hybrid sound of Aussie Rock and 80’s Hair Rock, heavily riffing “Chasing Ghosts” and catchy rock anthem “Loving You (Is Loving A Broken)”.

”’Last Breath of Rock ‘N’ Roll’ represents the style of music that was my first personal touch to Rock music. This song is about the spontanious reaction that young guy felt when he listened to Rock music for the first time. So we made really rough and stripped song out of it – a tribute to the deepest essence of Rock. So raise your fist in the air and move your head!” singer Niko Rimbacher enthusiastically tells.

“Even as the track title refers to the ending of life the whole idea is actually the opposite. It’s about how to fill the huge gap that the current rock legends will leave after retiring and leaving the field open. And how to respect that heritage with total dedication” bass player and lyricist Reisca Morani continues.

The band also releases a music video that is built from the footage filmed on the Rimbacher shows.

Bay Area thrash icons VIOLENCE are readying to kick off a stretch of live shows this weekend with Swiss thrash legends, Coroner. The journey begins May 21st with a pair of shows at Reggies in Chicago. Exciter and Lich King join the run for some select shows leading up to VIOLENCE’s performance at Maryland Deathfest. In June, the band will play a trio of shows in Oakland, Seattle, and Portland. In August, VIOLENCE will perform in San Diego and Los Angeles before pillaging the stage at this year’s edition of Psycho Las Vegas! See all confirmed dates below.

VIOLENCE:
5/21/2022 Reggies – Chicago, IL w/ Coroner
5/22/2022 Reggies – Chicago, IL w/ Coroner
5/24/2022 Middle East – Boston, MA w/ Coroner, Exciter, Lich King
5/25/2022 Underground Arts – Philadelphia, PA w/ Coroner, Exciter, Lich King
5/26/2022 Le Poisson Rouge – New York, NY w/ Coroner, Exciter, Lich King
5/27/2022 Maryland Deathfest – Baltimore, MD
6/05/2022 Oakland Metro Operahouse – Oakland
6/10/2022 El Corazon – Seattle, WA
6/11/2022 Hawthorne Theater – Portland, OR
8/16/2022 Brick By Brick – San Diego, CA
8/17/2022 Catch One – Los Angeles, CA
8/19/2022 Psycho Las Vegas @ Resorts World – Las Vegas, NV

An integral part of the San Francisco Bay Area thrash metal scene was, and still is, the quintet known as VIOLENCE. Formed in 1985, they entered that scene with the intentions of being the most aggressive band that scene had to offer, always delivering a devastating live show complete with vicious mosh pits and constant stage diving by their faithful following, and a nonstop dose of adrenaline delivered by the band. Even though they had not performed since 2003, their frantic style of thrash metal still appeals to metalheads globally. Now they’re reformed and back with their intense live performance and their frantic music.

Joining original members Perry Strickland (drums), Sean Killian (vocals) and Phil Demmel (guitars) are legendary artists Bobby Gustafson (guitars) and Christian Olde Wolbers (bass), creating a formidable five-some ready to take the world by the throat.

The band recently issued their Let The World Burn EP via Metal Blade Records. The five-song EP showcases the band’s first new material in twenty-nine years and fully delivers on the classic VIOLENCE sound. “That came very naturally,” states founding guitarist Phil Demmel. “I hadn’t written a lot of thrash in the past seventeen years or so but being the main songwriter for the band over the years I wanted that sound, I wanted that mid-‘80s raw thing, but I also wanted to capture our signature notes and structures and stuff like that.”

Elaborates vocalist Sean Killian, “Each song has its own individual sound, they are all very thrash metal, there are grinding riffs, technical riffs, and plenty of speed. The lyrics are written freely with no restrictions and without compromise while the vocal patterns are typically unusual and delivered with a multitude of emotions.”

Let The World Burn was tracked in Trident Studios in Pacheco, California by Juan Urteaga (Machine Head, Exodus), mixed by Tue Madsen (Dark Tranquillity, Heaven Shall Burn), and mastered by Ted Jensen (Alice In Chains, Death Angel) with Demmel tracking his solos at home.

Finnish Progressive Metal Band Sum of Seven Released A New Music Video The Enemy!

Finnish progressive metal band Sum of Seven released a new music video The Enemy. Famous Finnish model, dancer & singer Joalin Loukamaa, known from global Pop band Now United is featured on the video. The track is released in collaboration with Inverse Records.

Watch the music video The Enemy: https://youtu.be/V1Ir_pUPd_w

Listen to The Enemy single on streaming services: https://push.fm/fl/ioqtfcwd

About “The Enemy” single, Ari commenting:

“We wanted to create a video that has a nice balance of story and the band playing. Originally we planned this to be purely the band playing the song but the place we found for the shoot inspired us to add a story element. Joalin Loukamaa did an excellent job in our last video and we asked if she would join the project. Fortunately she said yes and did an amazing job again. We got Saku Suominen from Sakuvisuals to direct and work his magic behind the camera and we had an absolute blast filming this. We feel that the atmosphere of the video and the song complement each other in just the right way and the finished product definitely makes us proud.

The Enemy is a song that starts out fast and aggressive and really carries that momentum from start to finish. It is one of the heaviest songs that we have made so far. When that intro explodes you know that we’re going somewhere fast. But at the same time when the vocal melodies kick in they steer the song into a different direction than you might expect, still carrying the aggressive momentum. That element of surprise is really what crowns the song for me. The Enemy has one of the best melodies we have written in my opinion and Marko’s delivery is just absolutely breathtaking. The lyrics talk about freedom, victory and survival, but they also have connotations to the questionable interpretations of those subjects. The message can be interpreted as positively empowering, but also as a disturbingly delusional illusion.”

Swedish Hard Rock Band BLISTER BRIGADE Released A New Single And Music Video “Carousel”!

Band pic by: Adam Björk

Swedish Skellefteå-based hard rockers Blister Brigade released a new stand-alone single and music video Carousel. Beside from being a groovy and heavy rock song, it is a homage to the fabulous ink studio Carousel Tattoo.

WATCH Carousel music video: https://youtu.be/antMat-f1Qk and/or below:

The band comments:
” ”Carousel” is in its foundation a heavy rock song. But with this one we decided to also get a little experimental. Since this song was written partly as a tribute to a tattoo studio, we found inspiration in circuses, carnivals and of course, tattoos. With these keywords in mind we just had to go outside our comfort zone and get a little nutty. It’s also the first song we’ve written together from scratch and it’s safe to say that we think this jam ended up really awesome. “

BIOGRAPHY:
Blister Brigade was formed in 2010 by guitarist/vocalist Gustav Lund and drummer Jerker Avander. Joined by guitarist Cristoffer Strand and bassist Simon Lundström, the band started jamming on some ideas. With inspiration from bands like Motörhead and Skid Row Blister Brigade quickly developed a raw but yet a heavy and solid sound.

In 2013 the band released their debut album ”To Serve And Punish”. The album was well recieved and the gigs started rolling in. Blister Brigade’s second album ”The Executioner” was released in December 2016, and by that time drummer Jerker Avander had already left the band, leaving the drum chair to Rickard Lundmark (Zonaria, ex-Feral). Before the release of the E.P ”Pissed, Outraged And Outgunned” in 2018, Simon stepped down as the bands bass player. After a thrilling audition shortly after, bassist Anders Gustavsson joined Blister Brigade.

With the new line-up, the spark was lit again and after playing some gigs the band hit the studio once again to record their third full-length album. ”Slugfest Supreme” was released in February 2020 and with a harder, faster and heavier sound than before, Blister Brigade got ready to hit the stages. As for so many other bands and artists, the pandemic ruined all plans. But the band didn’t give up and stayed intact throughout the recent bleak years. With the brand new single ”Carousel”, Blister Brigade is more alive and rock’n’roll fueled than ever.

Line-up:
Gustav Lund: Lead and rythm guitar, vocals
Cristoffer Strand: Lead and rhythm guitar
Anders Gustavsson: Bass
Rickard Lundmark: Drums

Toronto-based heavy metal outfit SKULL FIST are pleased to reveal their latest video single, “For The Last Time.” The track comes by way of the band’s impending new full-length, Paid In Full, set for release on April 22nd via Atomic Fire Records.

Comments the band’s Zach Schottler, “We filmed this video in -20º C weather in my shed. For your sake, I hope you are nowhere near as cold as we were when we did this. This song was actually written more recently than the other ones and I’m happy its tombstone has finally been erected.”

View SKULL FIST’s “For The Last Time” video HERE. Listen, download, or stream the track HERE.

View previously released single “Long Live The Fist” at THIS LOCATION. The song is available on all streaming platforms HERE.

Since their steely inception back in 2006, dungeon keeper Zach Schottler and his shredding band of reckless companions have released three classic heavy metal almanacs, have eaten more dust than is good for their health, have endured various hardships and propped up countless beers at countless bars in countless cities. But now, after fifteen years of metal and mayhem, Schottler is coming into his own with the proverbially titled Paid In Full album, a heavy metal wonder of the defiant middle finger variant. With heads held high, empty pockets, and enough gas to make the next show, SKULL FIST has won 2022. Don’t mess with the FIST. The FIST is the law!

Written at home and recorded at Vespa Studios near Toronto, Paid In Full encompasses Schottler’s sonic efforts of the past two years: tales of steel and legends from the underworld…

Paid In Full will be available on digipak CD, vinyl in various color variants, limited edition boxset, and digitally. Find preorders at THIS LOCATION.

SKULL FIST:
Zach Slaughter – vocals, guitar
Casey Guest – bass
JJ Tartaglia – drums

J.B.O. Shares New Music Video From “Planet Pink”!

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock bands, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, music videos, news with tags , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

For over 30 years, J.B.O. are the specialists for vociferous escapism at the highest stage. Gold albums, frenetically acclaimed live appearances and top ten chart positions pave their way. Their new album, Planet Pink, makes no exception. Especially in a world we are currently living in on planet earth, with pandemics, insane dictators, ecological disasters, surging prices for beer. Mankind’s only chance is escapism, so let’s enter the orbital glider and head for the stars when Planet Pink, the upcoming album by iconic J.B.O., starts to make its rounds on April 15, 2022 via the metal powerhouse mothership AFM Records!

After previously-released singles, “Metal Was My First Love”, the album title track and just recently, “Nicht Doof” (“Not Stupid“), today the charismatic German-based collective released a new, official music video for “Einhorn” (in engl: “unicorn”).

Escape to Planet Pink & watch J.B.O.‘s new music video for “Einhorn” HERE:

For obvious reasons, Planet Pink was created under very special circumstances. Usually the band bosses Vito C. and Hannes “G.Laber” Holzmann sit together on a couch and exchange ideas. This time they jammed through the phone. It worked out, because Vito and Hannes know each other better than identical twins.

Planet Pink was recorded with producer Christoph Beyerlein at Sound and Groove studio, Nuremberg. Beyerlein is part of the J.B.O. family since 1994 and the fifth band member in the studio. Supervised by the observing ears of Beyerlein, the rest of the crew sorted and refined a lot of demo recordings for only one reason: in the end there will be just one planet glow in the brassiest colours. “It’s Planet Pink”!

Pre-Order the new J.B.O. album HERE!

Tracklist:

  1. Planet Pink
  2. Rockmusik Hat Mich Versaut
  3. Metal Was My First Love
  4. Immer Noch Am Leben
  5. Einhorn
  6. Expeditionen Ins Geistreich
  7. Klassiker!
  8. Nicht Doof
  9. Mi-Ma-Metal
  10. Glaub Mir Lieber Nicht
  11. Wir Kommen Alle In Die Hölle
  12. Volks-Prog

Finnish Stoner Metal Band ZOMBIE RODEO Return With New Single ‘Mind Infestation’

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , on February 24, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Finnish stoner metal band Zombie Rodeo is back after six years. The band released a new single Mind Infestation which is taken from the upcoming EP The Eyes Are Set Upon You. EP is released on April 29th 2022 via Inverse Records.

Watch Mind Infestation video: https://youtu.be/_GcUcByGzcE

The band comments:
“The song is a twisted tale, when one’s mind is consumed with thoughts, that should not normally be there. This time the vocals took a much harsher turn and also the music has a lot more pronounced mid 90’s metal vibe, on top of the fuzzy delivery of earlier releases. The lyrics also reflect the music better this time.

After a lenghty search, no suitable replacement for Thomas Vee on vocals was found, so Miika decided to also take on the vocal duties on top of delivering commanding riffage. Otherwise the line-up remains unchanged this time.”

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , on February 20, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

TABAHI is a Thrash Metal band from Karachi, Pakistan. A city is known as the most violent in Pakistan, and among the world’s most dangerous. A perfect breeding ground for quality thrash metal. TABAHI, takes its cues from 80’s German thrash bands such as Destruction and Kreator, armed with some classic pre-86 Bay Area ideas.

With stingy vocals and claustrophobic riffs, the music will take you right into the heart of Pakistan’s most dangerous city with a pure thrash assault that numbs the brain. After an 8 year hiatus, TABAHI returns; being both a pioneer of thrash metal in Pakistan and their country’s only thrash metal band.

Watch and listen to their new music video for new single Politricks below. A damn good song and worthy of many listens on any metalhead’s playlist. Crank it up you metal muthas!!
