THE RODS To Release ‘Brotherhood Of Metal’ Album In June

Legendary U.S. metal band THE RODS will release a new album, “Brotherhood Of Metal”, on June 7 via SPV/Steamhammer.

Says THE RODS drummer Carl Canedy: “If you like the first song, then the odds are you’ll like the whole album. It’s balls-to-the-wall heavy metal, song after song. No ballads and nothing your mom will be humming.”

Spring 1980 saw the foundation of the group surrounding vocalist/guitarist David “Rock” Feinstein, a cousin of the unforgotten Ronnie James Dio and former member of their joint band, ELF. Six years and five albums later, THE RODS decided to go separate ways in 1986 and disappeared from the scene for more than twenty years, rising again like a phoenix from the ashes in 2011 with their outstanding comeback album “Vengeance”.

The three musicians — Feinstein, Canedy and bassist Garry Bordonaro — have recorded eleven songs for “Brotherhood Of Metal” (a twelfth track will be included as a bonus track on the vinyl edition). Recorded at the Barn Castle and the Nire Studio, engineered by Lonnie Park, Carl Canedy and Eric Chesek, the album features spectacular cover artwork courtesy of Belgian artist Eric Philippe and brings a breath of fresh air to the band’s classic metal.

The “Brotherhood Of Metal” album title reflects the musicians’ attitude to life, and what is more, it’s the general philosophy of this exceptional band.

Says Carl: “David, Garry and I are still close friends all these years later. We’re a band of brothers and proud that we’re heavier than ever and making great RODS music for the fans.”

“Brotherhood Of Metal” will be released as a CD digipak, 2LP gatefold (incl bonus track “Crank It Up (35 Years)”), as a digital download and via stream music services.

Track listing:

01. Brotherhood Of Metal (7:28)
02. Everybody’s Rockin’ (3:57)
03. Smoke On The Horizon (4:47)
04. Louder Than Loud (4:15)
05. Tyrant King (4:38)
06. Party All Night (2:49)
07. Tonight We Ride (4:40)
08. 1982 (5:16)
09. Hell On Earth (4:20)
10. The Devil Made Me Do It (3:54)
11. Evil In Me (6:26)

Metallica: Will There Be A Lars Ulrich Solo Album?

New footage of Metallica live in the “Tuning Room” before a show in Pittsburgh PA on October 18, 2018 features a short clip with Drummer Lars Ulrich on Drums and Lead Vocals playing a Metallica cover version of the Judas Priest classic “Delivering The Goods”.

Will this lead to a Lars Ulrich solo album?

In a related article from 2016 Metallica’s former manager Jon “Jonny Z” Zazula told Metal Hammer magazine that Lars Ulrich was originally considered to be the frontman for Metallica.

LINK: https://www.loudersound.com/news/metallica-considered-making-lars-ulrich-frontman

“Lars and I planned a lot of stuff. But James wasn’t the most confident of singers. I don’t think he felt comfortable.

“At one point there was even talk of Lars becoming the frontman. For about five seconds.”

Zazula stated.

Is Metallica hinting at a Lars Ulrich solo album?

VIDEO: Misfits – Walk Among Us – Earache Records LP Reissues

 

Earache Records is Reissuing the classic 1982 Misfits album “Walk Among Us”  on a set of limited edition vinyl lp’s.

The vinyl reissue on Earache Records is an Officially Licensed Release from Warner Music and taken from the original “Walk Among Us” Master Tapes.

The LP has a new sleeve variant, with a green logo and a pink sky, pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl and 350gsm heavyweight sleeve.

 

From www.earache.com :

Release Date: November 30, 2018

The term ‘legendary’ gets thrown around an awful lot these days. In this case however, the legacy of Misfits is undeniable, having transcended punk into popular culture, and when a band can be cited as an influence on names like Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Green Day, Sum 41 and so many more, the term is simply unquestionable. Now their debut album, ‘Walk Among Us’, will be reissued on vinyl by Earache Records on November 30, with six different colours of vinyl available EXCLUSIVELY from this store.

Officially licensed from Warner Music, the audio for this vinyl is taken from the original master tapes, which have been supplied directly from Warner. Coming in a brand new sleeve variant, with a green logo and a pink sky, the vinyl will be pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl, and will surely be considered the definitive vinyl edition of this punk classic.

 

 

For years, many long-time Earache fans have wondered what would be given the highly coveted MOSH666 catalog number. The answer is here, and it’s hard to think of a more fitting and appropriate album for this release.

As an added bonus, we have 1500 deluxe 12″ x 12″ art cards featuring ‘Cave Silhouette #2’, an alternate image that was considered for the original cover of “Walk Among Us”, taken by Eerie Von during the Cave Session in upstate New York, August 1981. Originally unused due to the low light and slightly out of focus shot, it has now been restored by Laura Jay for Eerie Von’s upcoming book of photography, ‘Misery Perfectum’. These art cards will be included for free with the first 1500 orders from our store!

Track Listing:

Side A:

1. 20 Eyes
2. I Turned Into A Martian
3. All Hell Breaks Loose
4. Vampira
