The Swedish band Europe is again on tour in this second leg of the 2015 released album WAR OF KINGS. On first part of the 2015 tour, the band covered a small handful of cities across North America, which included Headlining at the Monsters of Rock in Miami, then Milwaukee, Cleveland, Chicago, Niagara Falls, New York, Uncasville just outside of New York City and at the M3 Festival. The band continued playing at European festivals in the summer of 2015 and having more shows around Europe in Fall/Winter of 2015. They were in fact in our homeland Finland just last September, hitting Tampere and Helsinki on September 27 and 28 2015. The USA Tour had been very successful to the point the band had mentioned returning in North America in early 2016. Now well into the 2016, Europe has kept the promise made of re-touring the USA and went back one more time to play in more areas of North America, starting from Northern California, spanning from more West Coast locations into the Mid-West, some northern casino cities and the Southeast. The full list of the city was: San Jose, CA, Anaheim, CA, Los Angeles CA, San Diego CA, Las Vegas NV, Chandler AZ, Badlands SD, Lawrence KS, Shawnee OK, Dallas and Houston TX, Ft Lauderdale, Pinella’s Park, Orlando FL, Biloxi MS and Atlanta GA. It seems they will be bound to return to North America again without letting 10 years go by again for another American tour, judging from the great turn out of these 2015 and 2016 concerts. And it looks like this year has an important anniversary: February 15, 1986 saw the release of their most popular, majestic hit single, “ The Final Countdown”. While there is already some talk of celebrations for the occasion, we thought of sitting down with the drummer, Ian Haugland of Europe to hear more about this, before assisting to their Lake Buena Vista Concert at The House of Blues in Orlando.

Review by Ann Sulaiman

12661925_10153261939071426_2078867080448859332_n

A sold-out show awaited Saturday night in Camden’s esteemed concert venue, The Underworld. While London was the second to last date of Canadians Kataklysm’s massive European tour with Septicflesh and Aborted in tow, it was all the more reason to see a high-octane gig take place, especially regarding how rarely Septicflesh themselves are able to play the UK. After tonight, it’s only fair that UK promoters take notes to invite all three bands to play the British isles more often.

SEBASTIAN BACH Announces U.S. Spring Tour, Memoir Release Date

March 4th, 2016
by Celtic Bob

12806129_10154013507554809_6183252873257836041_n

In anticipation of his upcoming book, “18 and LIFE on SKID ROW,” iconic rocker Sebastian Bach will embark on a US Spring Tour that will incorporate an intimate acoustic set followed by a full electric live show.

“‘An Evening with Sebastian Bach’. No, that doesn’t mean we’re going to end up in the back of a police car. It means that for selected shows on the upcoming tour, we want to do something brand-new. Let’s bring the music back to its purest form. We have been touring a lot in the last few years so it’s time to do something different. You’re going to get two sets for the price of one. We’re going to open up the show with some stripped-down tunes, re-set the stage, and then come back with the Big Guns”, says Bach.  The tour kicks off on April 27 in Jacksonville, FL and wraps up in Salt Lake City on June 3rd. Tickets go on sale Friday March 4th, at 10AM local time. VIP package upgrade will be available athttp://www.sebastianbachlive.com/

His upcoming memoir “18 AND LIFE ON SKID ROW” is now set to release June 28th through Dey Street books.  “Pushing the book gives us the opportunity to really finish it properly. The publishers asked me for 30 pictures. I gave them 150. There are easy ways to do memoirs, simple ways to do biographies. What separates these books is the archival content. ’18 and LIFE on Skid Row’ could also be called the Skid Row Archives. I am giving you my personal collection, photos, & documents none of you have ever seen. A lot of them. I look forward to the book release and the book tour following the book release. If I am going to go on a tour of book stores, I have to really be into the book. June 28th release date gives us an extra month to pay attention to detail. In a project of this scope there are many details.”

In his memoir, Bach recounts lurid tales of excess and debauchery as he toured the world with Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe, Soundgarden, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails and Guns N’ Roses. Filled with never before seen photos from his own personal collection, 18 and Life on Skid Row is the story of hitting it big at a young age, and of creatively reeling from a band that broke up in its prime.
From a man who achieved his wildest dreams, only to lose his family, and then his home, this is a tale of perseverance, of wine, women and song, and of a man who has made his life on the road. 18 And Life on Skid Row is not your ordinary rock memoir, because Sebastian Bach is not your ordinary rock star.

Pre orders for “18 AND LIFE ON SKID ROW” are available at:  https://www.harpercollins.com/97800…/18-and-life-on-skid-row

TED POLEY’s “Beyond The Fade” Coming May 13, 2016 on Frontiers Music

March 2nd, 2016
by Celtic Bob

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the release of TED POLEY’s new solo album “Beyond The Fade” on May 13th, 2016.

ted825668373484_4046856275799355604_n

Best known as lead vocalist for the legendary Melodic Rock masters Danger Danger, TED POLEY is also an accomplished solo artist, having released two acclaimed releases, “Collateral Damage” (2006) and “Smile”(2007).

The story of “Beyond The Fade” starts after Danger Danger’s acclaimed performance at Frontiers Rock Festival in Milano in 2014, when he and the label developed the idea to work together on some new music. The next step was to speak to producer Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Edge of Forever) and with a band that he put together, TED performed at the second edition of the Frontiers Rock Festival. A few months later, TED came back to Italy to finish the vocals on the album.

TED says: “I am absolutely thrilled with the way the whole album came out. If I have one quote: “ITS AWESOME!” My great friend and co-producer Alessandro Del Vecchio brought my sonic vision to life and no request from me was too great for him toward his goal of making “The Ultimate TED POLEY Solo Album” and he surely delivered on his promise. We had alot of fun making the album and its obvious when you hear it. You can practically hear my smile while I am singing. We decided to make it sound BIG and there are a ton of backing vocals (in some cases more than 80 tracks of them!), along with great songs, soaring melodic guitar leads, pounding bass and big drums, all layered with cool keyboards… like a delicious Musical Cake! Save some room for dessert, I KNOW THAT YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS ONE!”

With songs penned by the brothers Tom and James Martin (VEGA ) and “Hands of Love” written by Tony Bruno/Joe Lynn Turner Official Page , the sound of the record is nothing else but TED POLEY at his best, with immediately recognizable hooklines, amazing guitar work, immaculate production and total 80’s attitude!

“Beyond the Fade” is sure to please not only TED POLEY’s fans, but all fans of melodic hard rock. Don’t miss this superb release.

Here is an EPK of the album with a LOT of stories from TED (as usual):

https://youtu.be/Iuc891WCLdw

“Beyond the Fade” Track Listing includes:
1. Let’s Start Something
2. Everything We Are
3. Hands Of Love
4. The Perfect Crime
5. Stars
6. Higher
7. Where I Lost You
8. You Won’t See Me Cryin’
9. We Are Young
10. Sirens
11. Beneath The Stars

TED POLEY: Lead Vocals
Issa: duet vocal on The Perfect Crime
Alessandro Del Vecchio: Drums, Keyboards, Backing Vocals
Mario Percudani: Guitars
Anna Portalupi: Bass

LEE AARON Returns With New Album

March 2nd, 2016
by Celtic Bob

Fire-And-Gasoline-Hi-Res-Cover-790x810

On March 25th, 2016, multi-platinum Canadian rock artist Lee Aaron returns with her hotly anticipated new rock album, Fire and Gasoline.

Ever timeless, seemingly ageless, and artistically fearless, Lee Aaron has sustained a three-decade strong career based on the powerful songwriting and vocal delivery that are at the heart of Fire and Gasoline (Big Sister Records/ILS/Caroline). Featuring songs like the title track Fire and Gasoline, Wanna Be, Heart Fix and Bitter Sweet which evoke the influences of Led Zeppelin, Heart, Bowie, The Runaways and Fleetwood Mac while weaving in and out of Aaron’s unique artistic vision. It is a vision that has led her to sales of close to a million copies in Canada alone, multiple awards and nominations, and a fervent following around the world. Iconic videos for songs like Metal Queen, Whatcha Do To My Body, Hands On and Some Girls Do were staples of MuchMusic in Canada, and continue to rack up massive views on YouTube, bringing Lee Aaron classics to a new generation.

Fire and Gasoline was recorded at Vancouver’s The Farm studio (better known to rock aficionados by its former name, Little Mountain Sound) with acclaimed west coast engineers Ben Kaplan (Mother Mother, Hedley) and vocal engineer/keyboard guru John Webster (Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, The Cult). Their Gold- and Platinum-certified ears give Fire and Gasoline a contemporary sonic sheen while also honouring the energy of the “off the floor” approach of real musicians interacting in real time.

The album is available for pre-order now, here: http://tinyurl.com/je4qzgk

Tom Boy, the first video and single, was penned for Aaron’s daughter and was inspired by the fearless, unself-conscious energy of pre-teen girls. The video features Aaron’s daughter (on guitar) along with her school friends as Aaron’s backing band. “It was incredibly cool watching the girls pick up the song as well as the instruments in an afternoon and give the performance they did. Off camera, we were all eating pizza and clowning around and that joy translated onto the screen. It really captures the essence of the tune.” Lee, a fan of vintage film and video, wanted the girls to have that ‘Jailhouse Rock’ look.

You can view the video here: https://youtu.be/1LgBv3l8Rx4.

Fire and Gasoline is truly a classic rock n’ roll album, with an emphasis on “class”.

This summer Lee Aaron will be performing to crowds of thousands at major music festivals across Canada, and is looking towards select live dates in Europe as well.

Fire And Gasoline Tracklisting:
Tom Boy
Fire And Gasoline
Wanna Be
Bitter Sweet
Popular
50 Miles
Bad Boyfriend
Heart Fix
Nothing Says Everything
If You Don’t Love Me Anymore
Find The Love

Wolf Hoffmann of Accept – Being in this Band is a Pretty Sweet Gig!

February 29th, 2016
by Metal Rules

Wolf Hoffmann of Accept

Interviewed by Robert Cavuoto

Wolf Hoffmann

Wolf Hoffmann

Accept’s stature amongst metal heads continues to grow since they left a long-lasting impression with such anthems as “Fast As A Shark,” “Balls to the Wall,” “Princess of the Dawn” and “Metal Heart.” It’s about to be taken to a whole new level, as the group has announced they are going back into the studio to write a new CD right after they finish a string of dates from the Blind Rage Tour. Their last three CDs; Blood of the Nations, Stalingrad, and Blind Rage have left an indelible mark on the metal community and all offers thunderous riffs, intricate melodies, aggressive vocals, and infectious undiluted metal songs with a bite. Accept continues to write new metal anthems that carry on the legendary tradition with a metal attitude.

I caught up with guitarist and foundering member, Wolf Hoffmann, to get his perspective on touring, making new music, and history behind “Fast as a Shark!”

AL JOURGENSEN’S SURGICAL METH MACHINE Premieres Lyric Video

February 26th, 2016
by Celtic Bob

MINISTRY mainman Al Jourgensen’s new project, SURGICAL METH MACHINE, has inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Records for their self-titled debut album. The record, which was recorded primarily at Jourgensen’s home studio in Burbank, California with his longtime engineer Sam D’Ambruoso, will be released on April 15 worldwide. In support of the forthcoming album, Al has launched a brand-new lyric video for the new track “Tragic Alert”.

Al commented: “I hope you enjoy this soundtrack to the New World Order…you should, y’all helped create it!”

Pre-order Surgical Meth Machine via Nuclear Blast .

CD – Track Listing:
01. I’m Sensitive
02. Tragic Alert
03. I Want More
04. Rich People Problems
05. I Don’t Wanna
06. Smash And Grab
07. Unlistenable
08. Gates Of Steel
09. Spudnik
10. Just Go Home
11. Just Keep Going
12. I’m Invisible

LP – Track Listing:
Side A
01. I’m Sensitive
02. Tragic Alert
03. I Want More
04. Rich People Problems
05. I Don’t Wanna
06. Smash And Grab

Side B
01. Unlistenable
02. Gates Of Steel
03. Spudnik
04. Just Go Home
05. Just Keep Going
06. I’m Invisible

In an October 2015 interview with In The Loop magazine, Jourgensen stated about how the idea for SURGICAL METH MACHINE came about: “You know, [guitarist] Mikey [Scaccia] died a couple of years ago, from MINISTRY, and I just figured, like, nah, it’s time to quit. I don’t want to have John Bonham’s kid playing drums for us and having replacement parts forever; that’s just not my scene. So I just figured, ‘All right, let’s stop this. Let’s do some other stuff.’ And not only that. I found that it was really unburdensome to not have the MINISTRY moniker or expectations and just do something like whatever the fuck we want. I mean, the band’s name is SURGICAL METH MACHINE. It’s not like we’re gonna be on Top 40 radio and on ‘The Voice’ and ‘American Idol’. [Laughs]”

He continued: “I understand it’s not a real commercial project for us, it’s not gonna put bank in my wallet, but it was a lot of fun to do, in that sense – of just not having the constraints of the expectations of what you’ve done for twenty years. So this is… It’s kind of new stuff. It’s pretty cool. It sounds like kind of MINISTRY, but it’s a different level. It’s like I literally just put my foot on the gas pedal for this record.”

According to Jourgensen, the sound of SURGICAL METH MACHINE’s debut release leans heavily on the aggressive side, but fans can also expect to hear a few surprises. “There’s a couple of real poppy things on there, which brings me full circle, because, literally, I don’t give a fuck anymore,” he said. “So I’m actually almost acknowledging that first horrible pop record I did in 1983. I’m crooning on some songs, I’ve got some pop songs on there, and then there’s just brutal assault for the rest of it. It’s a very dichotomous record, but it’s me, and I’m acknowledging everything that’s been me through, like, the last 35 years. Let’s just throw my balls on the table and hope somebody doesn’t have a meat cleaver running.”

METALLICA Named Record Store Ambassadors

February 26th, 2016
by Celtic Bob

image001

Record Store Day is thrilled to announce its Ambassador for 2016, Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees… METALLICA!

Metallica is no stranger to Record Store Day, this year set for Saturday, April 16th, a special day in support of independent record stores and record store culture worldwide, now in its ninth year.

“Independent record stores are part of Metallica’s DNA,” said drummer Lars Ulrich. “They have been pivotal in shaping each one of us into the music fanatics we’ve all become. We could not be any prouder to be Record Store Day Ambassadors for 2016 and are looking forward to screaming from every rooftop the next few months about everything independent record store and beyond.”

Throughout Record Store Day’s near-decade lifespan, Metallica’s support has been more than noteworthy with in-store appearances, (remember Mountain View, CA Rasputin Records in 2008, when the band met their fans for hours to kick off the very first Record Store Day) and a healthy handful of special releases. In fact, members James Hetfleld, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo made big news just last year when the band’s cassette-issued demos collection, No Life Til Leather, ended up as Record Store Day 2015’s highest seller. As well, Trujillo’s lauded biopic, Jaco, about legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius, was RSD 2014’s Official Film and a special Record Store Day exclusive version was released on DVD for Black Friday 2015, including a bonus CD featuring tracks from Trujillo himself.

This year the band’s official release will fit into a wider theme of Record Store Day 2016, highlighting the relationship between US record stores and their French counterparts, between Record Store Day and ‘Disquaire Day’, between music-loving humans in the US and France, following the tragic events in Paris in November 2015. Metallica will release Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, Metallica! – Live at Le Bataclan. Paris, France – June 11th, 2003, a CD featuring a live recording from the club, with the band, Record Store Day and independent record stores donating proceeds to benefit Fondation de France’s Give For France charity (details here)

The live recording set list includes: “The Four Horsemen;” “Leper Messiah;” “No Remorse;” “Fade To Black;” “Frantic;” “Ride The Lightning;” “Blackened;” and encores: “Seek & Destroy;” and “Damage, INC.”

For now, let’s all get ready for another great Saturday in April, when we celebrate the culture of the independent record store with Metallica.
