Beatallica – ABBEY LOAD

April 16th will see the release of Beatallica’s third full-length album overall, ‘Abbey Load,’ via Oglio Records (a label that is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year). Imagine what ‘Abbey Road’ would sound like if it was written and recorded by Metallica, and you have ‘Abbey Load.’ And to celebrate on the same date, two of its members will chat with fans online via Facebook – Kliff McBurtney will be chatting between 12:00pm-1:00pm CST, while Jaymz Lennfield will be chatting between 6:00-7:00pm CST.

The chat will take place via the group’s official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Beatallica), and fans will be able to ask questions about ‘Abbey Load,’ including where it was recorded, how the band came up with song list and structure, how they choose songs to include, and of course, questions about past albums/songs. Also, Kliff will be up for discussing specific tablature questions.

MASH-UP MASTERS BEATALLICA READY NEW RELEASE, ‘ABBEY LOAD’

March 11th, 2013
 Beatallica - ABBEY LOAD

Beatallica – ABBEY LOAD

You’ve got to tip your hat to the lads in Beatallica. Few would have thought to merge together two of the most successful acts of their respective genres – pop tunesmiths the Beatles and thrash metal bashers Metallica – and create a must-hear, creative blend of both iconic artists. And the band that contains such wittily named band members as Jaymz Lennfield, Kliff McBurtney, Ringo Larz, and Grg III are back with their third full-length overall, ‘Abbey Load,’ on April 16th via Oglio Records (a label that is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year).

“Overall the album is our darkest,” explains Lennfield. “Not sure why it turned out that way, to be honest. We didn’t realize it til we got to listening to the first mixes. It sounds brooding in places. Not like we tuned down any more or played any stoner rock or anything. But the overall vibe is deeper than other projects we’ve done. Maybe it’s cuz the Beatles Abbey Road was the last release for them – like the end of an era. And we were placing our fingers on that. After a while, I got to embrace that whole vibe. Beatallica is always fun and interesting, and yes there are ‘candy’ songs on the album such as ‘Help!’ and ‘I Saw Her Standing There’… but there is something more foreboding about Abbey Load than what we initially thought.”

Once more, Beatallica have successfully found links between both aforementioned bands, most notably on the album’s tour de force, “Abbey Load Medley.” “The medley…well, it’s obviously one of the great famous pieces of rock music,” says Lennfield. “We really enjoyed working in NEWER Metallica tunes. Folks always ask us how much old stuff from Metallica we can use. Helloooo…they have a LARGE catalog, so use it!. Those tunes work great, plus the fact that we are doing what we always do: deal with tempo, time signature, rhythm patterns, keys from major to minor, adding our own riffs, etc., but now we have to make all the songs in the medley sound like they fit. Not just one song at a time, but now five songs, bang-bang-bang.. The challenge was irresistible.”

As for Beatallica’s plans for 2013, Lennfield predicts some good, old-fashioned global roadwork. “Well, we’d like to finally hit Japan. It’s just way overdue. We have US folks asking for us to come back so we’ll see how to best route. As far as Europe, they are starting to consider the fall sometime.”

“Beatallica is so much more than a novelty cover band,” adds Oglio Records founder Carl Caprioglio. “Beatallica’s members and producer are among the most creative and talented people I have encountered in my years with Oglio Records. Their ability to blend influences from these two legendary bands is as amazing and impressive today as it was when we met in 2006.”

Imagine what the Beatles’ ‘Abbey Road’ would have sounded like if it had been originally released by Metallica, and you have a good starting point for ‘Abbey Load.’
