MOTÖRHEAD to Release “Under Cöver” Album on September 1,

July 24th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

One thing Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee liked to do throughout their years together in MOTÖRHEAD was grab a favorite song by another artist and give it a good old fashioned ‘Motörheading’. To run them through the Motörizer, if you will. To rock them, roll them and even give them an extra twist and edge.

In celebration of some of those finest moments, the band will release Under Cöver, a collection of some of their best covers, and a collection which will include the previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s timeless classic “Heroes”. Recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, and was one of the last songs the band recorded together.

Under Cöver will be available in 1CD (Digi pack), 1x 180 grams Black Vinyl in gatefold, Super Deluxe Boxset (1CD digipack, 1x 180 grams black vinyl and VIP guest pass), Digital Audio and MFiT Audio.

Pre-order links as follows:
CD: http://hyperurl.co/MHUnderCoverCD
Vinyl: http://hyperurl.co/MHUnderCoverLP
Boxset: http://hyperurl.co/MHUnderCoverBS
iTunes: http://hyperurl.co/MHUnderCoverIT

“It’s such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us, and so it proved to be,” says Phil Campbell, “and Lemmy ended up loving our version.”

“He was very, very proud of it,” says Mikkey Dee, “not only because it turned out so well but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be – fun!”

To that ethic, the rest of the album contains loud and proud, raucous and raging rock ‘n’ roll takes on the likes of “God Save The Queen” (Sex Pistols), “Cat Scratch Fever” (Ted Nugent), “Rockaway Beach,” (The Ramones), Breaking The Law” (Judas Priest) and “Whiplash” (Metallica) which earned the band a Grammy in 2005 for Best Metal Performance.

“We were happy with them at the time and we’re happy with them now!” affirms Campbell, whilst Dee says, “We should remember that it’s about having some fun with songs that we all loved.”

If that doesn’t have you scrambling for your music delivery device, then check your pulse pronto. Or just start scrambling for a copy of Under Cöver immediately. You won’t be sorry.

L.A. Guns to Release “The Missing Peace” on October 13th

July 24th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

 

As the revival of the classic ’80s hard rock and heavy metal scene continues unabated here in the 21st century, one reunion has been at the top of the wishlists of many a fan for a long time: the songwriting combination of Tracii Guns and Philip Lewis under the L.A. Guns banner. What once seemed like a distant memory with no hope of returning has now come around and fans are about to be rewarded for keeping their fingers crossed and their hopes up.

That’s right Tracii Guns and Phil Lewis are back together as L.A. Guns! Their new album “The Missing Peace” is set for release on October 13th via Frontiers Music Srl. Today, the first video for the album’s debut single has been released. Watch the video for “Speed”. which Tracii Guns describes as “A response to the extremely fast paced “I WANT IT NOW!” world we are living in,” HERE. Hard rock aficionados should keep their ears opened for a nod to the great Deep Purple’s legendary track “Highway Star” in one of the verses.

Order the album here http://radi.al/MissingPeace or at the links below:

Frontiers: http://www.frontiers.shop
Amazon: http://radi.al/MissingPeaceAmazon
iTunes: http://radi.al/MissingPeaceiTunes
Google Play: http://radi.al/MissingPeaceGooglePlay

Digital pre-orders come with an instant download of “Speed”.

Follow the band on Spotify to be alerted when new singles from the album are released and to add “Speed” to your favorite playlists: http://radi.al/MissingPeaceSpotify

” ‘The Missing Peace’ is truly an album by definition. It’s a collection of music that I have been working on for about 12 years with various styles of rock music. From blues to classical influences, these are all hard-hitting songs. I am very proud of all of the contributions to this album by other members and writers. L.A. Guns fans are in for a treat,” says Tracii Guns.

L.A. Guns never looked like the pretty poster boys that so many of their peers did, but more the band that you would be terrified to bump into an alley as they would likely be carrying switchblades and ready for a fight. But despite having many a song to back up that image, they could also write powerful ballads (see the smash hit, “The Ballad Of Jayne” for Exhibit A of this argument) that showed there was some serious songwriting chops in the band. Said chops are fully on display on “The Missing Peace”, arguably one of the most vital and exciting releases in the band’s storied catalog.

The story of how we got from the band’s powerful early years to here has already been well documented, so no need to rehash it. What’s important to know and understand is that the driving force of all those classic L.A. Guns songs, Tracii and Phil, are back and in a BIG way. Feeling inspired and excited like they did when they first started out, but with many years of wisdom and experience under their belts, “The Missing Peace” will surely please fans of the band’s classic albums (the self-titled debut, “Cocked And Loaded”, and “Hollywood Vampires”) as well as their widely heralded “comeback” albums (“Man In The Moon” and “Waking The Dead”). In fact, this album feels like the next logical step after the critically heralded “Waking The Dead” album and shows a band invigorated and ready to bash you over the head, as well as “wow” you with some epic, slower songs, proving you don’t always needs a semi-truck to run people over.

“The Missing Peace” Track Listing:
1. It’s All The Same To Me
2. Speed
3. A Drop Of Bleach
4. Sticky Fingers
5. Christine
6. Baby Gotta Fever
7. Kill It Or Die

MARTY FRIEDMAN Reveals New Track “Miracle”

July 24th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

MARTY FRIEDMAN wasted no time unleashing his two latest anthems, “Self Pollution” and “Whiteworm”, in preparation of the release of his new album, Wall Of Sound, to be released on August 4, 2017 via Prosthetic Records. Today, Marty follows up with another soaring new track, “Miracle”, posted alongside an interview with Billboard Magazine.

Marty tells Billboard that “Miracle” is a heartfelt song, and that, “it’s supposed to make you feel really good after a big accomplishment, like you ran a marathon, a promotion or you fell in love with somebody.”

Check out the track and read up on Wall Of Sound, here: http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/7864293/marty-friedmans-miracle-exclusive-listen

Wall Of Sound expands and destroys any conventional notions of instrumental music. The album was produced by Friedman, engineered by Paul Fig (Ghost, Rush, Alice in Chains) and mixed by Jens Bogren (Lamb of God, Opeth). Pre-orders can be found here: http://smarturl.it/MartyFriedman

Once again, MARTY FRIEDMAN assembled an incredible and diverse group of musicians to record and guest on Wall Of Sound. His core recording band is made up of Anup Sastry, a modern whiz kid sharing drum duties with uber-veteran Gregg Bissonette, and Japanese musician Kiyoshi – who is undisputedly one of the most aggressive bassists on earth. Guests include Jinxx of Black Veil Brides and Shiv Mehra of Deafheaven, and Jorgen Munkeby of Shining lends his voice to the only non-instrumental track on the album.

Wall Of Sound will be available on all digital platforms, compact disc and comes in five limited edition LP color variants:
White Black Swirl LP – 300 Worldwide
Clear Black Smoke LP – 100 Worldwide
Glow in The Dark LP – 100 Worldwide
Clear Black Swirl LP – European retail exclusive, 100 Europe only

M.O.D. Releases New Album “Busted, Broke & American,”

July 23rd, 2017
by Celtic Bob

M.O.D. have release their new album “Busted, Broke & American,” via Megaforce Records. This is their first album since 2007’s “Red White and Screwed” and the reaction has been exactly what you would expect for an M.O.D. release:

A crossover thrash classic!
-Metal Insider-

Busted, Broke & American sees Milano in full sociopolitical swing
-Decibel-

Busted, Broke & American may also be M.O.D.’s last album, according to singer Billy Milano, and if that’s the case, M.O.D. will go out with a bang!
-Decibel-

This is vulgar, angry New York hardcore crossover metal and it’s not subtle or nuanced in the least, and I can’t imagine it any other way with Mr. Milano involved. It’s also a veritable cross-section of the hardcore and classic punk genres with numerous nods to the style’s legendary acts.
-Angry Metal Guy-

Kudos, Billy. You’re one of a kind.
-Angry Metal Guy-

Busted, Broke & American provides the appropriate bow on a career that has spawned well over three decades, not to mention several genres.
-Dead Rhetoric-

M.O.D.’s most brash and in your face collection of songs to date
-Media Mikes-

The band’s first album in ten years is worth the wait. M.O.D still play offensive crossover thrash like no other with ten mosh inducing tracks on here.
-Target Audience Magazine-

Purchase Busted, Broke & American on iTunes and Amazon.

Billy Milano will host an album release party tomorrow July 8th at Bull McCabe’s Irish Pub in Austin, TX. Billy will be spinning the new album, there will be live bands and of course the spoken word and comedy of Billy Milano.

As to be expected, Busted, Broke & Americanis fast, it’s furious, and it makes no apologies. It also mixes hardcore, punk rock, and thrash and the end result is a thoroughly combustible collection of songs. The words “I’m sorry” are not a part of the album’s vocabulary. At the center of the sonic storm remains Milano, who has never been known to shy away from speaking his mind.

VENOM INC.’s Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan says: “This is the salute to you all… from our dark hearts to your good black souls… the earth is ours and Lucifer walks with us.

VENOM INC. Fall Festival Dates:
10/27 – Helsinki, Finland @ Heavy Metal Cauldron

Regardless of your take on black metal forefathers Venom, they are the undisputed originators of extreme metal as we know it. Almost 40 years after their inception, the revitalized 1989-1992 line-up of guitarist Jeff “Mantas” Dunn, vocalist/bassist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan and drummer Anthony “Abaddon” Bray have returned with a monster of an album.

Going into writing Avé, VENOM INC. realized their live performance was the key to creating an album that would be a metal classic. It was clear that any songs the trio came up with had to have the intensity, the honesty and the aggression that was happening for VENOM INC. in a live situation. Simply put, they needed to translate what they do on stage onto a record. Not once did they look back on the Venom catalogue and think, “We have to write another ‘Black Metal’ or another ‘Schizo’…” The focus is on VENOM INC. and everything the rejuvenated three-piece do in the here and now.

While unexpected at the outset, the end result of this reunion is an album that true Venom fans will gladly add to the top of their playlists.

Avé track listing:
01. Ave Satanas
02. Forged In Hell
03. Metal We Bleed
04. Dein Fleisch
05. Blood Stained
06. Time To Die
07. The Evil Dead
08. Preacher Man
09. War
10. I Kneel To No God
11. Black N Roll

VENOM INC. is:
Jeff “Mantas” Dunn | guitars
Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan | bass, vocals
Anthony “Abaddon” Bray | drums

Riverdogs New Album “California” Out Now

July 23rd, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Riverdogs’ California is premium blues-infused AOR melodic hard rock, and quite recommended.
-DangerDog Music Reviews

There’s still plenty of juice left in their tank.
-Team Rock

It’s diverse with superb musicianship.
-Sleaze Roxx

This is an album to play and play again and one that might even bring some new fans into the fold.
-The Rock Pit

They say good things come to those who wait, well, we have been rewarded with “California” and that has been well worth it.
– Rock In The Fast Lane

Riverdogs ARE BACK! Rob Lamothe (vocals, guitars), Nick Brophy (bass, vocals) and Vivian Campbell (lead guitar), Marc Danzeisen, have reunited to record their fifth album, “California”. The album is available today via Frontiers Music Srl.

Guitarist/Vocalist Rob Lamothe had the following to say regarding “California’s” Release:

“The opportunity to write and record again with Nick, Viv and Marc is a dream come true. Better, actually. The only way we could have made a record we feel this good about was to stand in room together, guitars in hand… and play. We played, we turned up the volume, we jammed out, we drank coffee and ate Mexican food every day for a week. And then we did it again. 12 songs! We found a big room to record drums in and Marc did his Marc drum thing. We walked through Hollywood in the early mornings, talked to people on the street, drank more coffee. We camped out in a great little studio tucked away on a side street to record Viv’s guitars. Viv played on some amazing level of musical magic and got his parts recorded in 4 days. Nick and I then recorded his bass, plus my guitars and vocals in Nashville a few weeks later. Boom! Done.

We are so grateful to Frontiers Music Srl for allowing us to make something special for ourselves, for our friends and families… and for our loyal listeners who have been with us for decades!”

Join bassist Nick Brophy for a Facebook Live Q&A on Frontiers’ Facebook at 2pm EST/1pm CST/11am PST here: https://www.facebook.com/frontiersmusicsrl/

BARB WIRE DOLLS Share Powerful Message of Self-Love in New Track “If I Fall”

July 23rd, 2017
by Celtic Bob

The freshest new name in punk-influenced rock, BARB WIRE DOLLS, will release their electrifying new album, Rub My Mind, tomorrow, July 7, 2017 via Motörhead Music.

The band is touring all summer long on the Vans Warped Tour in support of the album! Along the way, BARB WIRE DOLLS have met many fans, new and old, face-to-face – hearing their personal stories and bonding over a mutual love of rock music. But one young fan’s story, in particular, really stuck with the band – a 15-year-old girl who expressed that she was considering taking her own life, but after discovering BARB WIRE DOLLS and listening to their messages of self-love and self-empowerment, was inspired to find new ways to use her inner strength to live a more joyous life and help others who are experiencing similar struggles. This story greatly touched lead singer Isis Queen, who also battled with suicidal thoughts at a young age.

Coincidentally, the band’s new track, “If I Fall”, focuses on topics of suicide and just wanting to give up on life in itself. Today, BARB WIRE DOLLS have teamed up with Alternative Press to not only premiere this track, but to also share a statement from Isis Queen about her own personal struggles with self-loathing, and how giving up is never the answer.

In her statement, Isis Queen says, “I’m extremely grateful that I’m alive today and that our music and message of self-empowerment and self-realization has been able to reach others who have felt the way I did before. Our new track, “If I Fall”, was written about this important issue and I hope it can open up rusty portals in someone’s mind to look beyond suicide and take the challenge that life gives us – and to create a fulfilling, good life for themselves. If we can inspire anyone to make any sort of positive change, that is our mission.”

While online, check out BARB WIRE DOLLS’ previously released single,”Back in the U.S.S.A.”, here via the official music video: https://youtu.be/1xLkwc7N5OA

Rub My Mind pre-orders:
CD http://hyperurl.co/RubMyMindCD
Vinyl http://hyperurl.co/RubMyMindVinyl
iTunes http://hyperurl.co/RubMyMindIT

Rub My Mind was recorded in the Joshua Tree desert at legendary studio Rancho De La Luna in California, where Iggy Pop and Queens Of The Stone Age made their seminal albums. Produced and mixed by Jay Baumgardner (Evanescene, John Fogerty, Bush), Rub My Mind is a collection of thirteen eclectic tracks that reflect on the state of our world, how to deal with it – and how to escape it! Rub My Mind builds on the energetic platform of their last two releases – Slit (2013) and Desperate (2016) – delivering an album that confidently grabs your immediate attention. Rub My Mind’s soundscape blends the melodic rage of lead guitarist and former pro surfer and skateboarder Pyn Doll, the crunchy rhythm guitar of Remmington, the pulsating bass of Iriel Blaque, the Bonham-esque power of Krash Doll on drums; all led by Isis Queen’s dynamic vocals and flamboyant presence. Dedicated to legend Lemmy, the album is an exciting retro cocktail of late ’70s influenced punk and ’90s grunge refracted through the prism of 2017.

Rub My Mind track listing:
1. Back In The U.S.S.A.
2. If I Fall
3. Desert Song
4. Hole Of Isolation
5. Gold
6. Call Me
7. We Are Champions
8. Edge Of Innocence
9. Fade Away
10. Contract
11. Where Mountains Drink The Wine
12. Fire To Burn
13. Waiting To Be Lost (**track not available on vinyl)

Hailing from an artist commune on the island of Crete, BARB WIRE DOLLS sold everything they owned and left crisis-ridden Greece in 2010 for Los Angeles, at the invite of legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer. The band’s electrifying rock did not go unnoticed by the elder statesman of the Sunset Strip, the incomparable, irreplaceable Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. After seeing BARB WIRE DOLLS live, Lemmy took an immediate interest in the band and had them signed to the Motörhead Music record label.

Having played over eight hundred shows in 25 countries, and with an extensive and diverse live support under their belt, including the likes of GBH, Status Quo, NOFX and Steel Panther, BARB WIRE DOLLS are currently delivering their live assault to fans all over North America on the legendary Vans Warped Tour:

FLOTSAM AND JETSTAM Summer Tour Dates

July 23rd, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Flotsam and Jetsam announce their 2017 summer tour dates with a handful of shows in the U.S., before traveling to Europe for select club dates centered around their appearances at this year’s Wacken Open Air and Into The Grave Festival, in Leeuwarden, NL.

With the departure of Jason Bittner to Overkill, Flotsam and Jetsam was fortunate to have friend of the band and Phoenix, AZ native Ken Mary (Fifth Angel, Alice Cooper, House Of Lords, TKO, Chastain), step in to handle drum duties for their upcoming dates.

“We’re looking forward to seeing our European friends and fans one last time this year, before we start production work on our upcoming album. And we’re just as excited to get a chance to play a few shows with a drum legend like Ken Mary. Good times ahead,” says Flotsam.

Flotsam posted on their Facebook page back on May 8th, an email address for drummers to request audition songs to send videos into the band, which generated numerous submissions from around the world. The band is working through the audition videos to narrow down and then select a drummer after the summer tour dates are complete. Also, the band begins pre-production tracking for a new album with a Spring 2018 release.

Flotsam and Jetsam’s summer tour dates:

20.07.2017 The Rock – Tucson, AZ
21.07.2017 Club Red – Mesa, AZ
22.07.2017 Brick By Brick – San Diego, CA
23.07.2017 Malone’s – Santa Ana, CA

STASS (band with Felix Stass from Crematory) – “Warriors Land” Video

July 23rd, 2017
by Celtic Bob

 

First single “Warriors Land” from the upcoming new album from STASS – a band created by Felix Stass, vocalist from Crematory and Rogga Johansson, guitar player from Paganizer.

STASS was formed after Felix and Rogga met at a Paganizer gig in Germany 2012. Paganizer was playing a minitour and at a gig in Ludwigshafen near Mannheim where Felix resides, they bumped into eachother. Sharing a mutal love for metal and drinking aswell as eating, there couldnt be much question that they would enjoy eachothers company. After keeping in touch and Felix guesting on a song on the second Megascavenger album they both thought it would be cool to work on a whole album together, combining their talents in the best possible way. And then the idea of STASS was born. To make an album together that showcases both the heavy and the dark and also the melodic sides to both their main bands Crematory and Paganizer. A total of fifteen songs were written and recorded and produced by Demiurg bassplayer Johan Berglund, who also plays bass on the album. On lead guitars Paganizers Kjetil Lynghaug stepped in and excels in some awesome solowork. The album that contains ten of the fifteen written songs is a vortex of melodic dark death metal, oozing of the vibe and the voice of Crematory but merged with the heaviness of Swedish death metal.

Felix Stass – Vocals
Rogga – Johansson – Guitars
Kjetil Lynghaug – Lead Guitars
Johan Berglund – Bass
Erik R Bevenrud – Drums

Recorded at The Rotpit, Sweden and Empire Studios, Germany Mixed and mastered by Johan Berglund at MountainCove Studios All music and lyrics by STASS Artwork by Mark Erskine Bandphoto editing by Turkka Rantanen. A&R by Michael H. Andersen

The debut album “The Darkside” will be released 15th of September on Mighty Music.

VARDIS Classics “100 MHP”, “The World’s Insane”, “Quo Vardis” Remastered & Re-Released on CD & Vinyl

July 23rd, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Hard Rock/NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) band VARDIS will have the classics albums “100 MHP”, “The World’s Insane”, and “Quo Vardis” remastered & re-released on CD & Vinyl via Dissonance Productions and Back On Black Records. The CD digipaks featuring exclusive bonus tracks, to be realeased on September 22nd and Vinyl on October 20th 2017.

Preoder is open now: “100 MPH” http://bit.ly/DISS067CDD, “The World’s Insane” http://bit.ly/DISS068CDD, “Quo Vardis” http://bit.ly/DISS069CDD.

The VARDIS comeback album, “Red Eye“, was released in 2016 via SPV/Steamhammer.

VARDIS was forged out of glam, punk, heavy metal, blues and rock ‘n’ roll in the crucible of 1970s northern England. They are a product of rock music across three generations: inspired by the great rockers and electric bluesmen of the ’50s and ’60s, learning their trade rubbing shoulders with the young guns of hard rock and punk in the ’70s, and achieving prominence in the ’80s as part of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. The hard, ferocious attack of their sound directly influenced the development of thrash and speed metal across North America and Europe, cited by metal giants such as METALLICA and MEGADETH. Never losing sight of the melodic, boogie sensibilities of their earliest influences, the VARDIS brand of hard rock retains a unique heavy groove, and has endured as truly original.

VARDIS are:

Chains Over Razors Join Forces with Carmine Appice and Rocker Records

July 23rd, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Carmine Appice and Rocker Records (www.Rocker-Records.com) is excited to announce its partnership with the Chains Over Razors.

Chains Over Razors is an intense Rock and Metal power trio comprised of singer Franco V. Roc, guitarist Mike Vapor, and drummer Andy Vapor.
The three started out together as part of the the group Beneathme in 2007. They reformed in 2014 as an intense three piece focused on edge and melody driven music pushing new ideas and concepts in the genre that many would consider against the rules. About the name drummer Andy Vapor says, “we were watching a show about taboo culture, and the art of scarring and people hanging from chains and laying on a bed of razors or nails. This kinda led to an ‘aha’ moment. We thought that should be the new group name, Chains Over Razors. We always think of it as being imprisoned in a cold dark room with hanging chains over a floor with razors. It’s a complete separation from reality.”

The hard hitting name goes hand in hand with the hard-hitting music on the trio’s debut album produced by Rock legend Carmine Appice. The first single and video “Damnation” which as guitarist Mike Vapor puts it is a “powerful heavy groove with a dark story”. Other stand out tracks include “Devil’s Eyes” (“The riff gives me the impression that your face is going to get torn off. It’s intense.” -Mike), “Center Line of a Lie” (“The rhythm for the drums has an interesting double bass pattern that sounds like it is dancing in and out of the guitars. It’s pretty interesting.” -Andy), and “2020” (“This song questions our existence and purpose.” -Andy).

Although Mike and Andy live in Chicago and Franco is based in Montreal, QC the band comes together to write and perform.
More videos and music coming soon, and look for the band on the road this summer and fall!

JAG PANZER release new lyric video for “Far Beyond All Fear”

July 21st, 2017
by EvilG

US Metal legends JAG PANZER release a new lyric video for the song “Far Beyond All Fear” today. The track is taken from their forthcoming album “The Deviant Chord”.

The lyric video was created by Jag Panzer guitarist Mark Briody:

I wanted the video to be a Jules Verne style adventure, like the kind we grew up with. I always wanted to set the lyric video in the same time period as the cover (late 1800s) so I could give some back story to the album artwork!
