LYNCH MOB Release Music Video for “Mr. Jekyll and Hyde” From Upcoming Album The Brotherhood

August 18th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Lynch Mob release the second music video from upcoming album, The Brotherhood, scheduled for release on September 8th via Rat Pak Records. The video also features a cameo appearance from members of Beasto Blanco and shows Lynch Mob performing at a freak show. The video comes on the heels of the video for “Main Offender” (https://youtu.be/ONZk7sof40w) that has resonated with fans being viewed over 125K times in three weeks.

Produced by Chris “The Wizard” Collier (Lynch Mob; Flotsam And Jetsam; Prong; KXM),The Brotherhood features eleven brand new hard rock tracks from Lynch Mob. The album is available for pre-order in various bundle configurations as well as on vinyl at www.ratpakrecords.com/lynchmob. The album is available digitally at iTunes (http://smarturl.it/lynchmobtbitunes) and fans who pre-order the album there will receive an instant download of “My. Jekyll and Hyde” and “Main Offender.”

The album will surely resonate with long time fans of the band, as well as those longing for that good ol’ hard rock sound and feel. “The Brotherhood” highlights the unique pairing of Oni Logan and George Lynch, and along with Sean McNabb (bass) and Jimmy D’Anda (drums), the band has created a solid offering from start to finish. From the heavy guitar riffs of the opening track “Main Offender” to the melodic album finale ”Miles Away”, Lynch Mob have once again proven they remain on top of their game and at the top of their genre! A trailer for the album was recently released and can be seen here: https://youtu.be/x5_Bvl8TJTk.

On the subject of Lynch Mob’s new record, Oni Logan comments, “After doing quite a few miles together with this latest line-up of Sean McNabb and Jimmy D’Anda, we consider ourselves a pack of wolves, and we came up with the name ‘The Brotherhood’ for the title of the next Lynch Mob album. It’s got more of an adventurous sound in part and maybe a darker, colder sound to it. We are always willing to go farther. We come from the early 90’s and it’s when we released the first Lynch Mob album, which set a sound and course for us. Here we are 27 years later, George and I are still able to keep on stretching. As a player, as a writer, that is very important to us. Otherwise we would be fooling ourselves and fooling you”.

George Lynch adds, “We wrote this album as a band and the name of the record reflects what the band is about, and what all my bands have been about since I’ve been a kid. This is my second family. These are my brothers. You go through a lot together and have a lot of experiences together. And that then becomes a part of the music.”

The tracklisting for The Brotherhood is:
1. Main Offender

2. Mr. Jekyll and Hyde

3. I’ll Take Miami

4. Last Call Lady

5. Where We Started

6. The Forgotten Maiden’s Pearl

7. Until The Sky Comes Down

8. Black Heart Days

9. Black Mountain

10. Dog Town Mystics

11. Miles Away

12. Until I Get My Gold

REVOLUTION SAINTS Release Second Video, “Freedom,” From Highly Anticipated Second Album, ‘Light In The Dark’

August 18th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

REVOLUTION SAINTS—Deen Castronovo (ex-Journey, Bad English), Doug Aldrich (The Dead Daisies, ex-Whitesnake, DIO), Jack Blades (Night Ranger, Damn Yankees)—released the second video, “Freedom,” from their highly anticipated second album.

LIGHT IN THE DARK is due out October 13 on Frontiers Music Srl, and will be available on CD, CD/DVD Deluxe Edition (includes live bonus tracks on the CD and on the DVD, footage from the band’s first-ever live performance captured at Frontiers Rock Festival in Milan this past April, a “Making Of” mini-documentary, and music videos for “Light In The Dark” and “I Wouldn’t Change A Thing”), Vinyl, and as a special Limited Edition Box Set (includes the Deluxe Edition CD/DVD, 180g Vinyl, T-shirt (size L), poster, lithograph and sticker). Pre-orders for all formats can be made at the following locations:

Pre-orders: http://radi.al/LightInTheDark
• Frontiers: http://www.frontiers.shop
• Amazon: http://radi.al/LightInTheDarkAmazon
• iTunes: http://radi.al/LightInTheDarkiTunes
• Google Play: http://radi.al/LightInTheDarkGooglePl

You can also listen to Revolution Saints’ newest music on Spotify here: http://radi.al/LightInTheDarkSpotify

“The lyrics for ‘Freedom’ were taken from notes I had written while I was in recovery in June of 2015,” explains lead vocalist/drummer Deen Castronovo. “They’re just a powerful reminder of where my head and heart were at the time. It was the last song Doug, (producer/songwriter) Alessandro Del Vecchio and I wrote and recorded. The whole lyric came to me in about 10 minutes. When I was at Hazelden Betty Ford, we would journal after each day to reflect on what we were feeling throughout the day. At the end of each day, I’d written the words ‘FREEDOM, COMING MY WAY.’ It was the first thing that hit me and thought it’d be a great chorus for a song. So when Doug brought the song idea in, his music just fit too perfectly. I moved some things around and the entire lyric fit into the song! It was totally effortless.”

“For this song,” continues guitarist Doug Aldrich, “the inspiration came when Deen and I were listening to what we had so far for the record and we wanted to write something different that we hadn’t done yet. One day Deen sent me a MP3 of him jamming on guitar. There were a bunch of parts going and I thought, ‘how cool is that? Deeno C throwing down!!’ I can just see Deen jammin’ and I didn’t expect that. I picked up the guitar and tried to play some stuff in the same tempo with the vibe he had. Basically on accident, I found a riff that I thought could be OK. When we all got to Milano, me, Deen and Alessandro talked about some ideas. We started talking about a jungle beat type of song, and I remembered the riff. The three of us did a rough demo and sent it off for label approval. Jack’s bass is super creative and fresh. Alessandro’s keyboards and production are stunning, and I love how it turned out. The lyric is very inspirational. I’m so impressed with Deen on this record! Let’s go! Freedom for all!”

LIGHT IN THE DARK builds off the classic melodic rock style of the debut, but fans should prepare for a somehow even more inspired set and a few (pleasant) surprises. Inspiring, uplifting, emotionally powerful, and thoughtful, this album WILL be the soundtrack to many a moment in your life.

A privately funded 501(c)(3) charity organization dedicated to cancer prevention, research and education, the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund has already raised nearly $2 million in its short history. Monies raised have been committed to the cancer research work of the T. J. Martell Foundation for Cancer, AIDS and Leukemia Research, the gastric cancer research unit of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where Ronnie was treated for gastric cancer during the last six months of his life, and other cancer research projects. Most recently, the Dio Cancer Fund has committed funds to support the research of Dr. David Wong and his team at the UCLA School of Dentistry in developing a simple, non-invasive saliva test for the early detection of cancer, which is in keeping with the Fund’s mission of cancer prevention, research and education.

30th Anniversary Edition Of WHITESNAKE’s 1987 Album Coming In October

August 17th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

This October, Rhino will issue a 30th anniversary super deluxe edition box set of Whitesnake‘s self-titled album, which was known as ‘1987’ in Europe and Australia.

The album featured the massive hits Here I Go Again (’87) and Is This Love? which propelled the album to sales of eight million in the US alone.

The super deluxe edition of this reissue is a 4CD+DVD package and features a newly remastered version of the album. As fans will known the track listings were different in the America and the UK for the original release. This reissue adheres to neither but is the same tracks and sequence as the 20th anniversary edition (without the four live bonus tracks).

The second CD offers 12 unreleased live tracks recorded from the band’s 1987-88 tour, while the third disc delivers almost the entire album in demo / rehearsal recording form. These variants are dubbed ’87 Evolution Versions’. These are all previously unreleased.

The fourth and final CD includes newly remixed versions of the four singles (Still of the Night, Is This LoveGive Me All Your Love and Here I Go Again 87) and includes radio mixes from the era and four versions of tracks that were unique to Japanese EP 87 Versions.

The DVD features the promo videos for the four singles (restored and with 5.1 surround sound) along with a 30-minute documentary of the making of the album. Additionally, there is a newly filmed video of Here I Go Again, and unreleased live footage from the 1987-1988 tour.

Along with the discs inside the box, there is a 60-page hardcover book, with the usual photos, essay, lyrics etc.

A 2LP vinyl edition adds some of those new 2017 remixes and a selection of live tracks to the bonus LP, while the two-CD deluxe is discs one and two from the box set (i.e. live tracks on the bonus disc).

MAC SABBATH Reveals Three New VR Performance Music Videos

August 17th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Fast food-themed Black Sabbath cover kings MAC SABBATH recently released their very first music video – the Claymation fiasco “Pair-a-Buns” – and are now following up with three brand new 360° VR live performance music videos, filmed at The Regent Theater in last summer. Produced by Jay Spangler, the VR videos are viewable with any VR viewer or Google Cardboard. Watch the video for “Sweet Beef” now via LA Weekly, with links to videos for “Chicken For The Slaves” and “More Ribs” included in the text: http://www.laweekly.com/music/

MAC SABBATH will return to the Regent Theater on December 29, 2017 as part of a three-day run, co-headlining with the Dwarves. 45 Grave will also perform at the Regent show, and tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am local time. Other dates include December 30 in San Diego and December 31 (New Year’s Eve) in Mesa, AZ. More details will surface on these dates soon.

Right now, you can get MAC SABBATH’s first ever recorded music – the single Pair-A-Buns – via flexi disc in their official new coloring activity book. The coloring book is chock full of fantastically-ridiculous images to color, dots to connect, mazes to solve and more. Order for just $15 via www.officialmacsabbath.com.

More about MAC SABBATH:
Mixing raucous comedy with borderline-horrific theatrics, the only thing more petrifying than impending health problems resulting from years of overeating is a Mac Sabbath show. Show attendees should be prepared to partake in the fun – Mac Sabbath puts on a theatrical, multimedia stage show – complete with a smoking grill, laser-eyed clowns, bouncing burgers and many more magical surprises… basically anything and everything an unwary show-goer could ever want in their wildest dreams.Named by Buzzfeed as one of the “13 Metal Bands You Didn’t Know How to React To” + Named as LA’s “Best Tribute Band” by LA Weekly.

“… one of the most interesting bands to come around in a long, long time. They have Dead Kennedys’ outrageous sense of humor mixed with total irreverence and ornate style on top of a solid, engaging performance (even if the crowd is reluctant to respond). So while this whole thing was probably thought up after eating too many pot brownies, it is one of the most brilliant ideas in a long time.”­ – Troy Farah, Phoenix New Times

“This is not a drill. Be it exchanging Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid” for a “Pair-a-buns” or “Iron Man” for a “Frying Pan,” these food-focused musical dweebs are cooking up something hot ‘n’ ready just for you.” – Alicia Lutes, MTV.com

“The most impressive-and terrifying-thing about Mac Sabbath is that they’re actually really good. Ronald channels his inner Ozzy onstage, from the manic jumping to the frantic hand waving…” – Bryan Rolli, Paste Magazine

“Even if the songs are dripping with onions and extra cheese, Mac Sabbath put on one righteous stage show, complete with smoke machines, gritty power chords, and endless head-banging.” – Chris Coplan, ConsequenceofSound.net

BLAZE BAYLEY ANNOUNCES NORTH AMERICAN TOUR IN SUPPORT OF ‘ENDURE AND SURVIVE

August 16th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Over the years, a whole new appreciation has developed for the “Blaze Bayley era” of Iron Maiden – which resulted in such classic albums as 1995’s ‘X Factor’ and 1998’s ‘Virtual XI’ (and the singles “Man on the Edge,” “Lord of the Flies,” “The Angel and the Gambler,” “Futureal,” and an all-new track on 1996’s Best of the Beast comp, “Virus”).

And recently, Bayley (who was also the singer for another highly-respected rock band, Wolfsbane) has released his latest solo effort (a second in a trilogy of release), entitled ‘Endure and Survive (Infinite Entanglement Part II).

And with the album’s release comes the announcement of an extensive North American tour, which starts August 9th on the east coast, and will run to September 9th on the west coast.

“I’m so excited about coming to USA and Canada for the ‘Endure and Survive’ part of my ‘Infinite Entanglement’ tour,” explains Blaze. “I have great memories of touring there with Wolfsbane and Iron Maiden. I’ll be doing a few songs from those days and some songs from my new albums. As a thank you to my fans for waiting so long for this tour, I will be doing a free meet and greet after every show, signing any CDs and albums that I’m featured on. I’m fitting in as many towns and cities as I can on this tour and I’m hoping it will be possible to tour USA and Canada every year if fans want me to return.”

Soon, North American fans will be able to hear Iron Maiden classics and solo material performed on stage by one of the great rock singers of recent times, Blaze Bayley!

GWAR Announces North American Fall Tour

August 16th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

On October 20th, GWAR will release a new studio album entitled “The Blood of Gods” via Metal Blade Records. In support of the new album, your Lords and Masters will leave their arctic slumber and return to the road to cause aural (and anal) devastation across North America. Joining in the chaos will be Ghoul, Doyle (10/20-11/5), He Is Legend (11/7-12/10) and U.S. Bastards. The tour kicks off in Richmond, VA on October 20th and runs through December 10th in Detroit, MI. The tour includes a stop in New York City on Halloween as well! A complete list of dates can be found below.

The Berserker Blothar had this to say about the upcoming tour:
“Humans, we are coming to tear your world apart with a live performance the likes of which has never been seen on this or any other planet! This album, “The Blood of Gods,” is the greatest thing since French toast. Just hearing these songs performed will result in an instant paroxysm of weeping, gnashing of teeth, and the uncontrollable voiding of your filthy bowels. Now, we are taking the whole bloody shit show on the road, with the most spectacular, blood-drenched, gruesome, and terrifying rock concert of all time. Don’t miss your chance to sacrifice yourself to GWAR at a venue near you!”

Bohabs! Be the coolest corpse in the pile! Don’t miss your chance to pledge your allegiance to GWAR each night when they rape and pillage your town. Head to https://www.gwarvip.com to take part in “The Lords and Masters VIP Experience”.

General admission tickets and VIP Packages go on sale to the public this Friday August 18th at 10:00 AM Eastern.

The Lords and Masters VIP Experience Includes:
*One (1) General Admission Ticket with Venue Early Entry (potentially guest list)
*Exclusive access to GWAR soundcheck where you will pledge allegiance to your Lords & Masters!
*Invitation to play a GWAR instrument onstage at soundcheck
*Tour of the weapons of your Lords & Masters
*Crowd Free Merch Access
*One (1) Souvenir item signed by members of GWAR
*One (1) Souvenir GWAR laminate
*Photo opportunity with GWAR before the show
*You will be killed by GWAR on stage during the show.
*Designated Slave Pit Area to pledge your allegiance before you are killed on stage by GWAR!

There are only 5 VIP TICKETS available per show, that’s it so don’t wait.

Concerning the album; “The Blood of Gods” is nothing less than a sacred text chronicling the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world. Along the way, the band challenges the sins of their great mistake, from politics, pollution, and organized religion, to fast food, and factory farming. Humans are shown as what they are; a parasitic disease that must be eradicated before they suck the planet dry. Meanwhile, Sleazy P. Martini, the crooked entrepreneur who discovered the Scumdogs, and has always envisioned them as a sort of horrific boy band, finally managed to convince the group to write a hit song called “I’ll Be Your Monster.” If all goes according to plan, it may be just stupid enough to work!

GWAR LIVES MOTHERFUCKERS!

JACK STARR Releases Video For “Hero”

August 16th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

The official video for the song “Hero” from U.S. power metal act JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR can be seen below. The track is taken from the band’s long-awaited new studio album, “Stand Your Ground”, which will be released on August 25 via High Roller Records. The effort, which is almost 80 minutes long, was produced by Bart Gabriel (with whom the band already worked on the previous album, “Land Of The Dead”), recorded and mixed by Kevin Burnes (DOKKEN, RAVEN), and mastered by Patrick W. Engel at Temple Of Disharmony Studio. The release will be available as CD, double LP, and digital download. Like in case of previous two BURNING STARR albums, its cover artwork was painted by Ken — legendary artist known from his iconic works for bands such as RAINBOW, KISS and MANOWAR.

“It’s an old-school-type metal album with modern production and great songs,” Starr says about “Stand Your Ground”. “In my opinion, it is one of the best metal albums in the last twenty years. I think that if we could go back in a time machine and put out this album in 1988, it would sell millions of copies, but even though it is 2017, I think it will still do very well.”

Regarding how “Stand Your Ground” compares to its predecessor, 2011’s “Land Of The Dead”, Starr says: “I think the new one is more diverse and has many more influences and also it is much longer. I think I am playing better guitar solos, Todd Michael Hall is singing better, Ned Meloni on bass is playing the best of his career and the comparison that comes to my mind is Steve Harris. Ned is playing with passion and speed like Steve Harris and also getting a great sound like Steve Harris. And as far as Rhino, there is nothing to say because he always plays great and this album is a continuation of this incredible drumming style that he has perfected.

“My favorite song on the album is ‘Stand Your Ground’, the title cut, I have played this one for a few people and the reaction has always been the same. It seems that the listener is very surprised that even though the song is eleven minutes long, it passes very quickly and is not repetitious. ‘Stand Your Ground’ has so many twists and turns and changes within the same song, it is like a mini symphony!”

“Stand Your Ground” track listing:

01. Secrets We Hide
02. The Enemy
03. Stand Your Ground
04. Hero
05. Destiny
06. The Sky Is Falling
07. Worlds Apart
08. Escape From The Night
09. We Are One
10. Stronger Than Steel
11. False Gods
12. To The Ends

JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR was formed in 1985 by and founding member of VIRGIN STEELE, Jack Starr. After releasing four albums in the ’80s — “Rock The American Way” (1985), “No Turning Back!” (1986), “Blaze Of Glory” (1987) and the self-titled one (so-called “orange album” from 1989) — the band returned with a new lineup featuring Starr, Ned Meloni (bass; JOE LYNN TURNER, DEVIL CHILDE, PHANTOM LORD), Kenny “Rhino” Earl (drums, MANOWAR, ROSS THE BOSS) and Todd Michael Hall (vocals; RIOT V), and released the well-received comeback album titled “Defiance” in 2009. Two years later, the band released their next studio album, titled “Land Of The Dead”, which was met with great reviews by critics and fans alike.

Video Premiere Of Force Majeure’s Second Single “Apocalyptic Hearts”

August 16th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Apocalyptic Hearts is the second single off Force Majeure’s third album ”The Rise of Starlit Fires” coming out on September 8th via Mighty Music / Target Group worldwide (except via Bickee Music in Japan). The Video for the song was directed, filmed and edited by Toni Salminen of Metalscope.fi and it was shot in East Sound studios and Suomenlinna Sea Fortress in Helsinki, Finland.

”Apocalyptic hearts was selected to be the video song based on comments from our label. We were asking what they find to be the most catchy song and out of few options, we ended up picking Apocalyptic Hearts”, Jussi from Force Majeure comments.

”For starters we filmed the full band performance parts and as a result we got bunch of sweaty hot powermetallers on tape. Soon we found out that despite the good looks of the band, we won’t be selling million copies of the single without some additional action material. To counterweight the almost romantic poetry-like lyrics of the song, we got Mr. Apocalypse to do an amazing role in his character and completing various tributes to different power metal themes. Can you spot them all?”, Jussi adds.
