Courtesy: Golden Robot Records

Hard rock band Black River is scheduled to release its new album, Generation aXe next month, and in anticipation of its release, unveiled the album’s new single and its video this week.

Generation aXe, the band’s fourth album, is scheduled for release June 24 through Golden Robot Records. Pre-orders are open. In anticipation of the album’s release, the band premiered the video for the record’s lead single, ‘Civil Army‘ Tuesday and followed its release with the premiere of the single Wednesday.

The song’s musical arrangement is a driving, 2/4 composition that boasts punk and hard rock leanings in one. Both are expertly balanced throughout, making the unique arrangement fully engaging and entertaining.

The lyrical theme featured in the band’s new single is meant to be a socio-political commentary about about the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine. That message is highlighted through the presentation of images of the conflict’s impact alongside footage of the band performing its new single in a vacant warehouse setting in the song’s video.

Guitar Rock Aficionados Will Enjoy The Latest LP From Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate

Courtesy: Golden Robot Records

Former L.A. Guns front man Jizzy Pearl (a.k.a. James Wilkinson) released his latest record with his Love/Hate project Friday, in the form of Hell, CA.  The record came five years after the release of the group’s then latest album, Before the Blackout, and less than four years after the release of Wilkinson’s then latest solo album, All You Need Is Soul.  The 10-song record will appeal to Wilkinson’s established audiences as well as more casual fans of the rock sounds of the 80s.  That is due in part to the album’s featured musical arrangements, which will be discussed shortly.  The arrangements’ companion lyrical themes play their own part in the record’s appeal among the noted audiences and will be examined a little later.  The record’s production rounds out the most important of its elements and will also be examined later.  Each item noted is important in its own way to the whole of the album’s presentation.  All things considered, they make the album a mostly successful entry in this year’s field of new rock albums.

Hell, Ca, the latest album from Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate, is a mostly successful new offering from the group.  It is a presentation that will appeal just as much to Wilkinson’s established audiences as it will to more casual 80s rock fans.  That is due in part to its featured arrangements.  From beginning to end, the record’s arrangements are pure guitar rock taken right from the late 80s and early 90s.  The bombastic solos are there as are the equally familiar bluesy riffs and distinct, sharp vocal styles made so famous during the era.  It is that short yet so hitting style of delivery that audiences came to expect from the likes of Vince Neil (Motley Crue), Bret Michaels (Poison), Axle Rose (Guns N’ Roses), to provide a reference point.  The rich sound of the bass and drums thanks to the production adds even more to that sense.  Interestingly enough, one could even make the most subtle comparison to works from Led Zeppelin at points, going even farther back in time.  Even in the record’s lone ballad (of sorts), ‘Last Chance,’ audiences get that familiar 80s/90s rock sound and approach.  Thankfully in the case of this song, the over the top schmaltzy approach of those old school power ballads is replaced here by a more balanced approach of rock and introspection.  Simply put, the record’s musical content offers audiences the best of the rock sounds of the late 80s and early 90s with none of the over-the-top excess of those sounds in each arrangement.  It is just part of what makes the album engaging and entertaining.  The lyrical themes that accompany the record’s musical content adds to its success.

The lyrical themes featured throughout Hell, CA are important to the record’s presentation because they are just as accessible as the album’s musical content.  Much of the record’s lyrical content centers on the fairer sex.  ‘Acid Babe’ and ‘Soul Mama’ for instance are clearly about a woman.  In the case of ‘Acid Babe’ it would seem that the woman of whom Wilkinson sings is one who is not good for the song’s subject.  In the case of ‘Soul Mama’ meanwhile, the matter is the exact opposite.  This is about a woman who drives the song’s subject crazy in a different way.  ‘Wanna Be Somebody,’ on yet another note, is also about a woman, but in yet another way.  In the case here, the song’s subject is essentially indicting that woman for the lengths to which she will go to make a name for herself and…well…be somebody. Even in ‘Gonna Take You Higher,’ listeners get a song with some swagger in which the clearly male subject is trying to win over the woman with his confidence.  The only song in this record that seems to not be about a woman is ‘Hard To Say Goodbye.’  In the case of this song, it seems to center on the song’s subject reminiscing about a friend or loved one who has passed.  Considering this and everything else featured in the record’s lyrical content, the whole of said content makes the overall lyrical content just as engaging for the noted audiences as the record’s musical arrangements.

While the musical and lyrical content featured in Hell, CA ensures listeners’ engagement and entertainment, each in its own way, that overall content is just part of what makes the album work.  The record’s production rounds out the most important of its elements.  The record’s production is important to note because of its role in the album’s general effect.  Each song is so energetic and fiery.  Keeping that in mind, it would have been so easy for the arrangements to get bogged down in themselves.  Thankfully that did not happen.  The instrumentations and vocals (as well as other minute items) are relatively well-balanced throughout the record.  The result is that each line compliments its counterparts and in turn ensures listeners’ engagement and entertainment in its own right, too.  When this is considered along with the appeal that the record’s musical and lyrical content generates for the noted audiences, those listeners will find the record overall worth hearing at least once.

Hell, CA, the latest album from Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate, is an interesting addition to this year’s field of new rock albums.  That is proven in part through its featured musical arrangements.  The arrangements present the best of the rock sounds of the late 80s and early 90s without all the excess of those works at the same time.  The album’s lyrical themes are relatively accessible what with their familiar content.  The record’s production puts the finishing touch to its presentation, ensuring each arrangement presents the best possible general effect.  Each item examined is important in its own way to the whole of the album’s presentation.  All things considered, they make Hell, CA a rock record that is worth hearing at least once.

Hell, CA is available now through Golden Robot Records.  More information on the album is available along with all of Jizzy Pearl’s latest news at:

Ancient Settlers Examines The Human Mind In New Single, Video

Courtesy: Crusader Records/Golden Robot Records

Up and coming metal outfit Ancient Settlers debuted its latest single and companion video this week.

The band debuted its new single, ‘Into The Depths I Ride‘ and its video Monday. The song features a driving, guitar-centered arrangement. The contrast of the song’s heavier verses and more melodic metal style approach in its choruses makes for an interesting overall presentation that will appeal to fans of the technical death metal genre.

According to information provided about the debut of the band’s new single and video, the song’s lyrical theme, “describes the exploration of our more obscure feelings, and an introspective view of the dark side of the human mind.”

The video for ‘Into The Depths I Ride’ is an amalgam of footage taken from the band’s time on the road and out and about in general. There is footage of the band on stage, enjoying a meal at a restaurant, and recording in the studio throughout the video’s presentation.

In other news, Ancient Settlers is working on its as yet untitled sophomore album, which will release through Crusader Records/Golden Robot Records. Grammy award winning producer and Dream Evil guitarist Fredrik Nordstrom (Arch Enemy, In Flames, HammerFall) is handling the record’s production while Daniel Cardoso (Anathema, Anneke Van Grisbergen) is handling mixing and mastering.

Cavalcade Debuts New Single, ‘Dreaming About’

Courtesy: Golden Robot Records

Independent rock band Cavalcade celebrated Thanksgiving by releasing its latest single.

The band premiered its new single, ‘Dreaming About‘ Thursday. The song is the second single from the band’s forthcoming as yet untitled album, on which the band is working after recently signing with Golden Robot Records. The band released the record’s lead single, ‘Feels Like Home‘ Aug. 26.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Dreaming About’ is a modern punk style composition whose harmonies and tones will appeal widely to fans of said genre. It is comparable in its sound and stylistic approach to a variety of more well-known counterparts to Cavalcade.

According to front man Connor Duggan, the lyrical theme featured in the band’s new single centers on the all too familiar topic of relationships in its own unique fashion.

“‘Dreaming About’ was born out of a recognition of just how much two people can learn in a relationship,” he said. “There are frustrations and longings that come from that reflection which brings an understanding that there are things that have irreversibly changed along the way.”

Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate Releases New LP’s Third Single

Courtesy: Golden Robot Records

Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate gave audiences something new to be thankful about this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘Gonna Take You Higher‘ Tuesday. The song is the third single from the band’s forthcoming album, Hell, CA, which is scheduled for release Feb. 11 through Golden Robot Records. The record has also produced the singles, ‘Soul Mama‘ and ‘Wanna Be Somebody.’

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Gonna Take You Higher’ is a presentation that will appeal to any classic rock purist. That is evidenced through its lead guitar line and vocals. Right from the acoustic approach used in the song’s opening bars, through to its richer main body, the song in whole throws back to so many classic rock style compositions. The first comparison that will likely come to many listeners’ minds is to works from the likes of Motley Crue. Additionally, some listeners might find comparisons to works from the likes of Led Zeppelin and Rainbow.

According to information provided about the single’s lyrical theme “is about Jack Parsons, one of the pioneers of rocketry aviation who also happened to be a devotee of Aleister Crowley.”

L.A. Guns Debuts New Single, ‘You Can’t Walk Away’

Courtesy: Golden Robot Records

L.A. Guns debuted its latest single this week.

The band debuted its new single ‘You Can’t Walk Away‘ Thursday. The song is the fifth single from its album Renegades, which was released Nov. 13 through Golden Robot Records. Its debut follows that of the album’s current singles, ‘Crawl,’ ‘Well Oiled Machine,’ ‘All That You Are‘ and the album’s title track.

‘You Can’t Walk Away’ is an interesting addition to Renegades because it really defies everything that audiences have come to expect from L.A. Guns throughout its life.  Yes, there is a little bit of a ballad type of approach here.  At the same time though, the production, the choruses, and the instrumentation really throws back to the 1960s and some very distinct influence of The Beatles.  It really is the album’s most surprising and engaging work because of that approach.  That musical aspect, with all of is production and emotion works with the song’s familiar lyrical content about a relationship, to make the song even more appealing.

The noted lyrical theme is mad clear right from the song’s outset as front man Kurt Frohlich sings, “Nothing’s right/Gonna be a long way home tonight/A lover’s fight/I’ve been away too long/Another day rolls by/And it feels like an old friend/But nobody wants to do it/No one seems to care/And nobody wants to listen anyway/You can’t walk away/Something inside is telling you/Why is it so hard to do/You can’t walk away/When it all falls apart/Leave with your heart.”  The theme is made even clearer in the second verse, in which Frohlich sings, “Nobody pays your precious way/Thought it was an easy thing to do/But when you turned around something told you/Go back to where they know you/You can walk away/Something inside is telling you/Why is it so hard to do/You can walk away/Still it all falls apart/Leave with your heart.”  Keeping all of this in mind, the song’s lyrical theme remains relatively clear.  This deals with the emotional difficulties that come with a breakup.  The addition of the song’s subdued musical arrangement adds even more to the song’s overall impact.  The two elements jointly make this song one of this album’s most notable and important works.

Drummer Steve Riley talked about the song during a recent interview.

“This is a song I wrote with a friend, Tommy Holland, over 35 years ago in Chicago,” said Riley. “I brought it to pre-production for the Renegades album and the band finished it with a new chorus and some other minor changes. We are very proud of it and hope it follows in the footsteps of Ballad of Jayne.”

‘Renegades’ Is Another Solid Return For Veteran Rock Band L.A. Guns

Courtesy: Golden Robot Records

Veteran rock band L.A. Guns unveiled another preview of its new album Renegades this week.  The band debuted the album’s new single ‘All That You Are.’  The album’s fourth single – behind ‘Crawl,’ ‘Well Oiled Machine,’ and the album’s title track — it is just one more example of what makes the record a positive new offering from the band.  ‘Why Ask Why,’ which comes between two of those singles early in the album’s 39-minute run, is another notable addition to the record.  It will be addressed shortly.  ‘You Can’t Walk Away’ is another intriguing addition to Renegades.  It will be discussed a little later.  ‘Don’t Wanna Know,’ the album’s finale, is yet another show of the album’s strength.  When it is considered along with the other noted songs, the record’s existing singles and its four remaining songs, the whole becomes a widely appealing record for rock fans across the board.

L.A. Guns’ latest album Renegades is a presentation that will appeal equally to the band’s longtime fans just as much as it will more casual listeners and rock fans in general.  The four singles that the record has now produced support the noted statements without question.  They are just some of the songs that show what makes the record so appealing.  ‘Why Ask Why,’ which comes early in the 10-song record’s run adds to that appeal in its own way.  That is due in part to the song’s musical arrangement.  The arrangement in question is a straight forward, guitar-driven classic rock style opus that throws in a touch of a modern rock element for a whole that is instantly infectious and keeps listeners engaged and entertained throughout its nearly three-and-a-half minute run time.  The energy in the fiery musical arrangement serves well to help translate the message in the song’s lyrical content and its associated emotion.

The lyrical content in question comes across as a familiar story of someone dealing with a toxic relationship.  Whether that relationship is romantic or plutonic is left to interpretation, but it seems relatively clear as front man Kurt Frohlich sings in the song’s lead verse, “I don’t know everything you feel/But I know that what I’m feeling is unreal/Can you show us what’s on my mind/Will you walk the wild side blind/Why ask why/I don’t mind.”  He continues in the song’s second verse, “Can you reach through inner space/Will you choose to meet me face-to-face/Are you two-faced/Yeah, you get on my last nerve…Why ask why/Why ask why/So don’t mind/’Cause I don’t mind.”  A small portion of the lyrics is difficult to decipher sans lyrics to reference, but the bigger picture here is relatively clear.  The energy in the song’s musical arrangement works to help translate the feeling of frustration obviously going through the main subject’s mind.  That is especially the case considering the tone in the guitar and bass.  To that end, the pairing of the noted musical and lyrical content here is certain to help the song connect with listeners and in turn, make the song accessible.  It all comes together to make the song just one example of what makes Renegades a positive return for this lineup of L.A. Guns.  ‘You Can’t Walk Away’ is another of the album’s notable entries.

‘You Can’t Walk Away’ is such an interesting addition to Renegades because it really defies everything that audiences have come to expect from L.A. Guns throughout its life.  Yes, there is a little bit of a ballad type of approach here.  At the same time though, the production, the choruses, and the instrumentation really throws back to the 1960s and some very distinct influence of The Beatles.  It really is the album’s most surprising and engaging work because of that approach.  That musical aspect, with all of is production and emotion works with the song’s familiar lyrical content about a relationship, to make the song even more appealing.

The noted lyrical theme is mad clear right from the song’s outset as Frohlich sings, “Nothing’s right/Gonna be a long way home tonight/A lover’s fight/I’ve been away too long/Another day rolls by/And it feels like an old friend/But nobody wants to do it/No one seems to care/And nobody wants to listen anyway/You can’t walk away/Something inside is telling you/Why is it so hard to do/You can’t walk away/When it all falls apart/Leave with your heart.”  The theme is made even clearer in the second verse, in which Frohlich sings, “Nobody pays your precious way/Thought it was an easy thing to do/But when you turned around something told you/Go back to where they know you/You can walk away/Something inside is telling you/Why is it so hard to do/You can walk away/Still it all falls apart/Leave with your heart.”  Keeping all of this in mind, the song’s lyrical theme remains relatively clear.  This deals with the emotional difficulties that come with a breakup.  The addition of the song’s subdued musical arrangement adds even more to the song’s overall impact.  The two elements jointly make this song one of this album’s most notable and important works.  Together with ‘Why Ask Why,’ the two songs show even more clearly what makes Renegades an appealing new offering from L.A. Guns.  The two songs are just a glimpse into the album’s appeal.  ‘Don’t Wanna Know,’ the record’s finale, is one more of the album’s most notable entries.

‘Don’t Wanna Know’ is a good way for L.A. Guns to close out its new album.  That is because this song’s musical arrangement is pure 80s hair metal.  The light, almost bouncy feel of Scotty Griffin’s guitar work and that of drummer Steve Riley works with Frohlich’s equally loose vocal delivery to take listeners back to the heyday of L.A. Guns, Motley Crue and Poison.  It is a fun, upbeat work that is certain to appeal to plenty of listeners, especially considering the more straight forward feel of the album’s opener, ‘Crawl’ and the rest of the album’s work.  It’s like this song is a reward to listeners for having made their way through the rest of the record.  Interestingly enough, as light and upbeat as the musical arrangement is here, it makes for an interesting contrast to the song’s lyrical content.


The lyrical content that is featured in ‘Don’t Wanna Know’ comes across as perhaps an indictment of someone going through addiction of some sort.  This is inferred as Frohlich sings in the song’s lead verse, “Heard it from my best friend/Heard it on the street/What’s going down/You puttin’ me down/Sayin’ I was obsolete/Heard it from your mother/Said you’re not the same/Tellin’ lies/With bloodshot eyes/Bringing the family shame/I’ve been this way too long/Too long/Nothing right or wrong.”  He continues in the song’s second verse, “Heard it from your doctor/You’ve been running late…never sleep/Losin’ all your weight/Heard it on the telephone/Picked it up to call/Got no place to hide my face/Even on a bathroom wall/It only hurts my soul/Don’t wanna know/Makes me lose control.”  What is interesting here is that all of this comes across in an almost frustrated yet sarcastic fashion.  It really makes for an interesting listen, again, especially when it is paired with the song’s high energy musical arrangement.  Maybe this is meant to be someone who is fed up with hearing about what a person is doing to himself/herself through the noted supposed addiction.  This is all just this critic’s own interpretation.  Regardless, the song offers audiences plenty of reason for engagement.  It all comes together here to show once more why Renegades is such a positive return for L.A. Guns.  When this song is considered along with the others examined here, the rest of the record’s songs and its singles, the whole of the album proves the album to be a widely appealing new offering from the veteran rock band.

Renegades is an interesting new offering from the veteran rock band L.A. Guns.  Its musical and lyrical content alike offers listeners so much motivation to remain engaged and entertained throughout its nearly 40-minute run time.  That is evidenced in all three of the songs examined here.  The same can be said of the four singles that the album has now produced and the album’s other songs not addressed here.  Each song is notable in its own right to the whole of Renegades.  All things considered, the album proves itself to be another example of why L.A. Guns remains one of rock’s elite acts.

L.A. Guns Debuts New LP’s Third Single, ‘Renegades’

Courtesy: Golden Robot Records

L.A. Guns debuted its latest single this week.

The veteran rock band debuted its new single ‘Renegades‘ Monday.  The song is the third single and title track from the band’s forthcoming album by the same name.  The album’s release date will be announced in the coming days.  It will come through Golden Robot Records.

The debut of ‘Renegades’ Monday follows the debut of the album’s first two singles, ‘Well Oiled Machine‘ and ‘Crawl.’  The latter of the pair is available to stream and download through SpotifyApple MusicAmazon, and Google Play.

The musical arrangement at the center of ‘Renegades’ is a straight forward, guitar driven work that will appeal to guitar rock purists.  The guitar riffs, drumming and vocals join with the song’s bass line to lend themselves to comparisons to the rock sounds that bridged the late 80s and early 90s.  One could actually compare the arrangement to works from Billy Idol.

The lyrical theme at the song’s center comes across as focusing on the all too familiar topic of a broken relationship.  In this case, it would seem that the relationship’s end came as a result of a band touring so much.  That is inferred in the statement, “Like renegades/Gypsies on the open road…Nowhere else to roam/Disarray…forever renegades.”  Some of the lyrics here are indecipherable sans lyrics.  That aside, enough is understood to make an educated guess as to the song’s lyrical theme.

L.A. Guns Debuts New Single, ‘Well Oiled Machine’

Courtesy: Golden Robot Records

Veteran rock band L.A. Guns released its latest single this week.

The band debuted its new single ‘Well Oiled Machine‘ Monday.  The single is the second single from the band’s forthcoming album Renegades, which is slated for release later this year through Golden Robot Records.  The album’s release date will be announced soon.

The musical arrangement at the center of ‘Well-Oiled Machine’ is a full-on 80s, guitar-rock composition that will appeal to fans of the band’s fellow 80s rock stalwarts Ratt, Motley Crue and Poison.

While the song’s art features a motorcycle with the band’s logo, and the lyrics could easily be confused with descriptions of a motorcycle, the reality is that the song’s lyrical theme appears to center on a woman. This is clear as front man Phil Lewis sings in the song’s lead verse, “I love my baby/She’s a well oiled machine/She takes me places that I’ve never seen/Movin’ fast/She’s a satellite/Rollin’ thunder through the night.”  The note of the rolling thunder, again, could lead to confusion, as could the mention in the song’s chorus of the subject having a “jet black shine/Curves like a dream/Ain’t nothing like you ever seen.”  In reality, that is more likely a description of said woman, complete with raven-colored hair and hourglass figure.  Lewis continues in the song’s second verse, “Lights out under barren skies/We fade away into the rest of the night/She cuts me deep like a vampire/Light ’em up/Set the world on fire.”  That mention of the vampire simile shows even more clearly that this is not about a motorcycle or even a car, but a woman.  Examining all of this, the woman is apparently quite the intense figure.  This is a theme that countless bands have used, and even despite that, will still appeal to the band’s fans as it takes a classic approach to the topic.

‘Well Oiled Machine’ is available to stream and download here.

The debut of the band’s new song comes less than two months after it debuted the album’s lead single Crawl.  According to a June 10 posting to L.A. Guns’ official Facebook page, the single had received more than 100,000 streams at that time. The song is available to stream and download through Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and Google Play.

The band debuted a making of video for ‘Crawl’ through Golden Robot Records’ official YouTube channel the day after ‘Crawl’ made its premiere.  The making of video is streaming here.  The song’s unofficial video, it features the band performing the single over a series of clips of the band in the studio working on the song.

A New Revenge Announces Debut LP Release Date; Debuts Video For Album’s Lead Single

Courtesy: Golden Robot Records

A group of veteran rockers has joined together to release a new album.

A New Revenge — Tim Ripper Owens (Iced Earth, Judas Priest, Yngwie Malmsteen), Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne, Dio, Whitesnake), Keri Kelli (Slash’s Snakepit, Alice Cooper, Vince Neil Band) and James Kottak (Montrose, Warrant, Kimgdom Come) — will release its debut album Enemies & Lovers on March 20 via Golden Robot Records.

In anticipation of the album’s release, the band debuted the video for the album’s lead single ‘The Way‘ on Friday. The video presents the band performing its new single on a sound stage designed to present the image of the band in a live setting. Scheduling conflicts prevented Sarzo from taking part in the video’s filming, so Phil Soussan (Ozzy Osbourne, Last in Line) filled in for Sarzo.

The song’s musical arrangement is a straight-forward, guitar-driven work that takes listeners back to the rock records that bridged the sounds of the late 80s and early 90s rock community.  Its lyrical content infers the addressing of a personal relationship issue as Owens sings of “fame and lies”, adding, “now you want it/I don’t need it all.”  He goes on to sing (seemingly in sarcastic tone), “I love the way you make me beg/I love the way you crush me.”

A New Revenge is scheduling tour dates in support of its debut album.  Those dates will be announced later.  The album’s full track listing is noted below.

Confirmed track listing for Enemies & Lovers
The Distance Between
The Way
Never Let You Go
Glorious
The Eyes
Fallen
Only The Pretty Ones
Enemies & Lovers
Here’s To Us
Scars

A New Enemy is just the latest project in which Owens is taking part.  He is also involved in the hard rock trio The Three Tremors.  Its self-titled debut is scheduled to be released Feb. 22 via Steel Cartel.
