LYNCH MOB's 'Sun Red Sun' Gets Release Date; Audio Samples Available
On December 9, LYNCH MOB will release the "Sun Red Sun" EP via Rat Pak Records. The CD was written and recorded by the same lineup as the "Sound Mountain Sessions" EP: George Lynch on guitar, Oni Logan on vocals, Robbie Crane on bass and Scot Coogan on drums. "Sun Red Sun" once again highlights the unique pairing of Logan and Lynch, showcasing their ever-evolving songwriting abilities. Mixed and mastered by Chris "The Wizard" Collier ( LITA FORD), it offers up straight-forward rockers like "Believers Of The Day" and "Play The Game", as well as more groove-oriented cuts like "Erotika" and "Subliminal Dream". The CD also features a dynamic Lynch guitar solo track called "Black Waters" as well as an acoustic ballad called "Sun Red Sun", which is a tribute to late BADLANDS and BLACK SABBATH singer Ray Gillen, who died on December 3, 1993 of AIDS-related complications. The release also features a cover of BAD COMPANY's "Burnin' Sky" and includes four remastered bonus tracks from the original "Sound Mountain Sessions" EP: "Slow Drag", "World Of Chance", "City Of Freedom" and "Sucka". "I was brothers with Ray," Oni explained to "The Double Stop" podcast. "He was a good dude. He was a great guy to me. When I arrived into L.A., he was a beautiful man to me. He was an unbelievable talent. So this 'Sun Red Sun', it's his extension for him. And this song 'Sun Red Sun' is written in the idea of that I'm speaking for him and I'm speaking for me. 'Sun Red Sun'… you know, shine on me forever. That kind of thing. So you'll hear it in the lyrics when you hear the song. So Ray is a dominant and principal meaning in the title of the album." Asked what it is about his chemistry with Lynch that keeps him coming back to the band after leaving the group several times in the last few years, Logan said: "It's [George's] undeniable riffage — the riffage of the sexiness that he supplies to me that I get from no other. I can never get it from any other. "We have a special thing going on. It's been like that forever. And if you were to ask him, [he would tell you] the same thing: it's like no other. It's just the way that it works. Somehow, the energy and the synergy of what it about, it works together. He evokes the riffs that just make me wanna fucking write. That's fine and simple. That's it. He's magical, he's a purist, he's a deep thinker, and I think he acknowledges me as the same. "When he tells me, 'Oh, man, that was a great lyric,' I take that and run home with it. 'Cause we're acknowledging each other. "I think we just need to let things happen at this stage. And I'm always gonna be there for it." LYNCH MOB's last release was the "Unplugged: Live From Sugarhill Studios" EP, which came out in March 2013.

EPICA: 'Victims Of Contingency' Video Released
"Victims Of Contingency", the new video from Dutch symphonic metallers EPICA, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Remko Tielemans (TEXTURES) and was produced by the Kunstoff Kollectiv, the same team who were responsible for the band's music video for "Storm The Sorrow". Comments EPICA guitarist Mark Jansen: “We've picked a heavy and brutal track this time as we wanted to surprise everybody. As 'Victims Of Contingency' is also a fan favorite, we are convinced that it is the right choice. "The video for 'Storm The Sorrow' has been received very well by the fans, so we were very happy to work with Remko and his team again. "We think the end result for 'Victims Of Contingency' is astonishing and I am very excited that we can finally share this video with all of you!""Victims Of Contingency" is taken from EPICA's sixth studio album, "The Quantum Enigma", which sold around 3,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 110 on The Billboard 200 chart. In a recent interview with Aux Portes Du Metal, Jansen stated about the lyrical themes covered on "The Quantum Enigma": "'The Quantum Enigma' means that in quantum physics we can't observe little particles without influencing them. It's been proven in a very famous experiment called the dual slit experiment. As we are all made out of an infinite amount of particles, what does all of this mean for the world as we know it? Is the world still there when we're not watching? Or is it a holographic projection coming from ourselves in a way? What is real and what is an illusion? The 'solid' matter as we know it isn't that solid after all. It's all energy which is spinning and turning in a way that it gives us the illusion of being solid. "'The Quantum Enigma' is pointing out such questions which are dealing about, thoughts, dreams, illusions of the mind. 'The Second Stone' talks about Alzheimer; people who get this disease die mentally for a first time, then after a while they die physically for a second time. 'Victims Of Contingency' talks about taking responsibilities for your deeds, and the power to learn from mistakes in order to grow as a human being. 'Chemical Insomnia' talks about the sleeping pill culture that goes totally out of proportions these days."
JUDAS PRIEST's ROB HALFORD: Praying 'Absolutely Works'
JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford, who has been clean and sober since January of 1986, credits his belief in a higher power for helping him in his recovery. "I'm a different guy to when I was 20," Halford said furing an appearance on HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta's official podcast, "The Jasta Show" (hear audio below). "I've been able to look at the world and see the world and find out what really is the most important and valuable thing, to me, as I live from day to day." He continued: "When I got clean and sober 28 years ago, that was a major change in my life. And part of my recovery is just having this higher-power belief. And it works. It works, man. It really, really is important." Halford added: "There probably will be people listening to [this] podcast who don't have anything like that in their life, and that's great; it's all about acceptance. But I always say to people, if you're thinking about it, the simplest thing I do is I pray. I pray quite a bit, actually. And even if you don't believe in prayer, just have a go. Pray for a good day, or just pray for your friend, or whatever it might be. And it's amazing, man, 'cause it absolutely works. I guarantee, it genuinely does work. And now I'm sounding like [American evangelical Christian evangelist] Billy Graham, but I'm just trying to express some of the things that are important to me on a day-to-day basis that make me able to walk out on that stage each night and do my work." While Halford states that he doesn't want to preach and force people to drink and act responsibly, he is quick to warn up-and-coming musicians that there will be consequences to their actions. "Whenever I have an opportunity to speak to new, young bands, and they go, 'Rob, give us a bit of information,' I just say, 'Man, just go out there and do everything. Don't listen to me. You're gonna do stuff anyway, because it's your life. But you'll make choices that may kind of backfire a little bit along the way, and then when they do, think about it and think about what you've gotta do to overcome those things where you don't feel good anymore or you're angry about something,'" he said. "Because, if you become dependent, a lot of it is due to that kind of imbalance." He continued: "In a band, it's really important to try and stay healthy. Because these people work hard, they put their money down to buy a ticket, they come to the show, they come and see you, they come and hear you, and they deserve the best show you can give them. So don't go stumbling out on that stage feeling sick because you were up all night boozing or doing whatever. That's disrespectful to your audience. And that's just, again, wisdom." Halford added: "I hope I don't sound like I'm preaching. I'm just trying to give [the] listeners just a little bit of an insight to what I think, again, is really important." In a recent interview with Classic Rock Revisited, Halford spoke in more detail about his decision to quit using substances. He said: "I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I will always remember the first show I did clean and sober… It was in New Mexico, in Albuquerque. I literally felt elevated, as everything was coming with such clarity. I was able to really… enjoy the performance of JUDAS PRIEST without having all of the other things in front of it. Since that day, it has been a miracle."Halford added, "Everybody has to face things in their lives at some point. It [doesn't have to] be booze and drugs. You can eat too much, or you can not exercise, or whatever… It is not easy staying clean and sober in rock and roll. There are temptations galore from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep, especially when you're on the road. [But] I think we're some of the strongest people, my friends and my sober brothers in metal."
SAMMY HAGAR Says He Was 'Miserable' For Last 40 Shows Of VAN HALEN's 2004 Tour
In a brand new interview with Rolling Stone magazine, legendary rocker Sammy Hagar was asked if he could see any scenario where he would play with VAN HALEN again. "I would play with anybody that loves me and that I love," Hagar replied. "That would include VAN HALEN, but the love's not there right now. I do love those guys. We really bumped heads on the last tour [in 2004.] Anyone that saw that last tour or read my book knows that I'm not gonna take any blame 'cause there's no blame to give me. I went out and did my job probably better than anyone else in that band. Anyone that saw the show, I think, would agree with me. That tour was just a mess and I would never go into a mess like that again. I'm too happy as a human being to be that miserable ever again. I was miserable for the last 40 shows. The first 40 shows I was thinking, 'Well, maybe Eddie [Van Halen] will straighten out' or 'Maybe this can come together.' But that didn't happen, and by the last 40 I was miserable. I would, however, be in the original band that we started. That was a love fest full of creativity."Hagar, who has been touring with THE CIRCLE, a combo consisting of Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson, told The Pulse Of Radio not long ago that he occasionally pines for VAN HALEN: "Y'know, I miss VAN HALEN," he said. "I don't like them fuckers and fuck those guys for what they did to Mikey [Anthony, former VAN HALEN bassist], especially — not me. Unnecessary. Bad guys. But I miss 'em, y'know? [Laughs] I miss that musicianship and that creative spark and that friction that made it all work, y'know?"VAN HALEN reunited with original singer David Lee Roth in 2007 after a 23-year gap, touring several times and releasing an album called "A Different Kind Of Truth" in 2012. Original bassist Michael Anthony was left out of the reunion, replaced by Eddie Van Halen's son Wolfgang. Photo credit: RockScene.com / Mark Weiss Photography
METALLICA To Release Remastered, Deluxe Editions of 'Kill 'Em All' And 'Ride The Lightning'
METALLICA is seeking help from the band's fans while preparing remastered, deluxe editions of their first two albums, 1983's "Kill 'Em All" and 1984's "Ride The Lightning", which they hope to put out in 2015. Anyone who has photos of the group and memorabilia or audio of concerts METALLICA played between 1983 and 1985 is being asked to submit them for possible inclusion in the reissues. "We want it all," the band wrote on its web site. "Did you manage to sneak a video camera into a show long before they fit in your pocket? Maybe your old instamatic camera for some snapshots? A cassette Walkman with a microphone? We're looking for anything and everything...audio, video, photos, fliers, ticket stubs, the set list you picked up off the floor and in general any mementos you may have from that around that time." Fans with items of interest, including stories, can e-mail METALLICA at submissions@metclub.com. The band added, "By submitting it, you're saying we can use it should your piece of history land on a release (yes, the lawyers made us add this part!)." Originally issued on July 25, 1983 through the independent label Megaforce Records, "Kill 'Em All" was recorded in two weeks on a miniscule budget in upstate New York. Although only 1,500 copies were initially pressed, the album was reissued by Elektra Records after the band signed to that label in 1984 and has since been certified triple platinum for sales of more than three million copies. The varied sounds of "Ride The Lightning", which included the first METALLICA ballad in "Fade To Black", drew mixed responses from some fans. The band's drummer, Lars Ulrich, told Rolling Stone magazine: "It did surprise us a little bit, I guess. People started calling us sellouts and all that type of stuff. Some people were a little bit bewildered by the fact that there was a song that had acoustic guitars." Noting that at least four songs from the album are still part of METALLICA's live set today, Ulrich said that "Ride The Lightning" "holds up very well," adding, "There's kind of a youthful energy that runs through the record." To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of METALLICA's six-time-platinum third album, "Master Of Puppets"— the band's last record with bassist Cliff Burton— in 2016, the group is collaborating with an author named Matt Taylor on a book about the making of the LP.Taylor, who wrote an acclaimed and extensively detailed book on the making of the movie "Jaws", contacted the band with a proposal to create a definitive history of "Master Of Puppets". The band explained: "When we took a spin through 'Jaws: Memories From Martha's Vineyard', we were so blown away by the presentation, thorough coverage, and attention to detail that went into it, we knew he was the man to help us celebrate the upcoming 30th anniversary of that release." The group stated that Taylor "has been very busy doing extensive interviews with all of us, our managers, record company staff, people we hung with then and Cliff's dad Ray," but added, "Matt's plan for the 'Master Of Puppets' book is to lean heavily on amateur, fan-taken photos and stories reflecting the grassroots vibe of the time."
Video: PAPA ROACH Performs New Single 'F.E.A.R. (Face Everything And Rise)' In Berlin
Fan-filmed video footage of Californian rockers PAPA ROACH performing the title track of their eighth full-length album, "F.E.A.R. (Face Everything And Rise)", last night (Wednesday, October 29) in Berlin, Germany can be seen below. The official video for "F.E.A.R." will make its online debut on November 4. The follow-up to 2012's "The Connection", "F.E.A.R. (Face Everything And Rise)" was recorded at Las Vegas' The Hideout Recording Studio, which is owned and operated by Canadian producer Kevin Churko. Churko has previously worked with OZZY OSBOURNE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, IN THIS MOMENT and HELLYEAH. It will be released on January 27, 2015 via Eleven Seven Music. As far as the title goes, the writing was on the wall — literally. "Jacoby [Shaddix, vocals] wrote 'F.E.A.R.' on the wall of the studio in spray paint," laughs bassist Tobin Esperance. "When we started the record, he was like, 'I want construction paper hung up on the walls everywhere so I can write down all of these thoughts.' That was the only thing he ended up writing on the wall. It stuck." "Fear is something I face every day," the singer admits. "It's about taking a negative and turning it into a positive. When you see the word, it looks like Fear. If you look deeper, it's Face Everything And Rise." "It felt like such a great concept to write an album around," says Jerry. "It's about facing your fears and knowing that no matter what happens, you'll be alright." "We pride ourselves on having that powerful aspect to our recordings and shows," adds Tony. "We were able to convey that here.""F.E.A.R." track listing: 01. Face Everything And Rise 02. Skeletons 03. Broken As Me 04. Falling Apart 05. Love Me Til It Hurts 06. Never Have To Say Goodbye 07. Gravity 08. War Over Me 09. Devil 10. Warriors The song "Warriors" can be streamed below.

SLAYER Tells Fan: 'Don't Sell Your Car'
SLAYER fan Jake, who shot a near-perfect spoof of Matthew McConaughey‘s Lincoln commercial in an attempt to sell his car in order to raise money for tickets to the band's concert in Los Angeles in Los Angeles next month, has been rewarded for his creativity. After seeing Jake's clip — which was actually produced by the experts at the Merit/Andrew ad agency, where Jake reportedly works as a production coordinator — the members of SLAYER decided to give Jake tickets to the show. A video message from SLAYER bassist/vocalist Tom Araya to Jake can be seen below. Comedian and actor Jim Carrey recently made headlines with his parody of McConaughey's Lincoln ads during Jim's guest-hosting appearance on the October 25 episode of "Saturday Night Live". Others who have mocked McConaughey's trippy stream-of-consciousness narrations of his wanderings in a Lincoln MKC SUV include Conan O'Brien, "South Park" and Ellen DeGeneres.
PAUL RODGERS: How I Managed To Retain A Strong Singing Voice
Paul Rodgers, whose distinctive vocals have been been heard on some of the best rock albums released over the years — from FREE to BAD COMPANY to THE FIRM to QUEEN— is a rare singer whose voice has not only defied the years, but actually become stronger with time. Asked by IndiePower.com how he has managed to retain his chops beyond his early middle age — unlike so many of his peers — Rodgers said (see below): "As a young kid, I went through that whole stage where temptation was there in front of me, and I did kind of… yeah, one overindulges when you're younger, and you pay the price in later years. But I always realized how important it was for me to take care of myself and my voice if I was gonna have a voice when I was older. And I'm glad that I did, ultimately, because I'd like to think I'm still learning. It's all still very fresh for me, it's still new. When I get up on stage with [other musicians], it's like the first time. And I wanna keep it that way, I wanna keep it exciting for me, 'cause I think it's not gonna be exciting for the listener if it's not exciting for the artist. So I want to be inspired by it, and I am." Rodgers' career spans nearly half a century. During that time, he formed and led three of rock's legendary bands FREE, BAD COMPANY and THE FIRM along with his own career to worldwide success. He has written, recorded, produced and released 30 albums which have gone on to sell over 90 million in total. His songs have left an indelible mark on music topping several charts and winning numerous awards - while his voice has earned him acclaim as one of rock's greatest singers. A consummate writer and performer, he has recorded and/or performed with the who's who of rock including Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Brian May, David Gilmour, Buddy Guy, Joe Walsh, Slash, Nils Lofgren, Charlie Watts, Bryan Adams, Motown's Sam Moore, and THE FOUR TOPS while continuing to tour internationally.

COREY TAYLOR Reveals Title Of STONE SOUR's Upcoming Covers Album
STONE SOUR has set "Meanwhile In Burbank" as the title of its upcoming covers album, tentatively due next year. There's no word yet on which songs the band intends to include on the disc, which is being recorded at the Burbank, California studio of the group's drummer, Roy Mayorga. During an appearance on HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta's official podcast, "The Jasta Show", STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor said: "We've been talking about [recording a collection of covers] forever. I mean, this is something that we've been talking about since the first album came out, with STONE SOUR. We've always wanted to do this. Even as people have come, people have gone, this is still something we've always come back to, and we just never had the opportunity to do it. And we just kind of said, 'Well, screw it.' "Roy's been slowly but surely kind of building his house studio. So we just started doing it like that — fucking low dough, and it sounds killer. There's no fucking pressure. You're just having fun. You're going back to these songs that you just love to listen to, not only just sing. And that's why it's called 'Meanwhile In Burbank', because, without giving too much away, that's where Roy lives — he lives in the Valley — so that's why we call it that. Because it's, like, that's what we're doing right now." On its last North American tour, STONE SOUR treated fans to a different cover every night, including METALLICA's "Creeping Death", KISS' "Love Gun", JUDAS PRIEST's "Heading Out To The Highway" and PETER GABRIEL's "In Your Eyes". Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio why he enjoys covering other artists' songs. "The thing I love about playing covers is that it's a chance to walk in the footsteps of your heroes," he said. "It's a chance to have fun. There's a certain amount of relaxation that comes when you don't have to worry about your song. This is someone else's song, you know. This is where you can relax and just remember why you're a music fan in the first place."STONE SOUR completed the touring cycle earlier this year for its recent double album, "House Of Gold And Bones", which was issued in two parts in 2012 and 2013.Jim Root, who has played on all five STONE SOUR records to date, did not perform on the last tour. Although the official reason given at the time was that he was staying home to work on the new SLIPKNOT album, it was later revealed that he was dismissed from STONE SOUR. He has since been replaced by Christian MartucciRoot said in a recent interview that he was fired by phone and is still not sure why he was dismissed in the first place.Root and Taylor continue to work together in SLIPKNOT, whose new album, ".5: The Gray Chapter", came out on October 21.

Philippine star rides dictator's coattails to West End

Mark Bautista speaks during an interview to AFP, in Quezon City, suburban Manila, August 13, 2014The extraordinary road to the West End for the Philippines' Mark Bautista began with singing boy-band covers at shopping malls and a long ride from poverty aboard a cargo ship. Now, he is performing to sold-out crowds at one of the world's most prestigious theatre venues, cast as ex-Filipino president Ferdinand Marcos in "Here Lies Love", a rollicking disco-and-dictators musical. "It was never in my wildest dreams that I could get a lead role in a Manila musical... and now I have this," Bautista, 31, told AFP recently before heading to London to star in the show written by Talking Heads co-founder David Byrne and Norman Cook -- a.k.a Fat Boy Slim.
