    Jacob Deraps - Fuck Off

    Sounds fine to me and his playing is good. Reminds me of Josh Zee from Prot!en which is a mega compliment.

    Lizzy Borden - My Midnight Things

    Sigh. This one is better than My Midnight Things, it is reminiscent of Me Against The World done by Wednesday 13 without the solo and half the oomph. I have the whole album and will spin shortly and hope for something with more staying power.

    Big City - Big City Life

    Yes this one will be excellent as was the first album Wintersleep that is getting combo'd with the new release. Daniel is a hell of a guitarist + and there should be noone that shouldn't like this stuff. More info from my SR post with band links: https://sleazeroxx.com/big-citys-new-album-big-city-life-wintersleep-double-cd-coming-june-22nd/

    Adrenaline Mob

    Looks like another "supergroup" in the making in Adrenaline Mob. And for pity sake who doesn't love The Duke! News blurb: Former DREAM THEATER and AVENGED SEVENFOLD drummer Mike Portnoy has announced his new project as the ADRENALINE MOB. The new band features SYMPHONY X singer Russell Allen, guitarist Rich Ward (STUCK MOJO, FOZZY), guitarist Mike Orlando and bassist Paul DiLeo (NENA). The band's intimate live debut is confirmed for June 24th at The Hiro Ballroom in New York City. According to a band update, Adrenaline Mob "will be playing a sneak preview of songs from their upcoming debut album as well as a few classic covers!" Very limited tickets available now at this location. Man wish I was back East I'd surely try to get in on this show!!

    Siren - "Up From the Depths: Early Anthology & More"

    Still waiting. but Stormy is a busy guy and he is certainly making the wait worth it. Still listening to Tornado of Blood and it is great imho.

    Lizzy Borden - My Midnight Things

    OMG. How to state the obvious without immediately offense... uhm... Firstly there are MANY IE ALL early LB albums that are "essential" if not critical. Give "'Em The Ax", "Murderous Metal Roadshow", "Love You To Pieces" are the backbone to LB. Hell we can even slip in the Terror Rising EP with the reboots and the classic "duet" with Betsy Bitch "Don't Touch Me There". As mentioned Menace to Society is also crucial LB. Master and Visual Lies are excellent but when compared to the early works are missing the rawness.

    VANITY INSANITY - Piece Of Her Cake (2017-2018)

    Nice find. Thanks for the share.

    Lizzy Borden - My Midnight Things

    I stated elsewhere that I hope this is the throw away tune and the rest of the album is Give "em The Ax part II. I'd settle for Visual Lies part II. I am a staunch LB supporter and fan so my optimism is optimistic yet after the initial track also apprehensive...

    5 Seconds Of Summer

    Second song is not allowed in "my country". The first tune is nice however.

    Cover songs

    Not necessarily a "cover" song but I LOVE this new band Saints of Sin and the co-lead guitarist Sophie is a beast. On the guitar that is otherwise the opposite...

    Lipz - Scaryman

    I saw that and assumed, hence the post.

    Lipz - Scaryman

    I've had a semi for these lads for a while now. Really talented with some excellent tunage.

    Retrospect Records is for sale

    I'd take it off his hands for $100. Only "value" is in the CD's as the other stuff is worthless. These days anyone can get a webpage and find a band or two to press some cd's. If there was some mega vault of demo's or masters then I might go $150...

    Lee Aaron - Diamond baby blues

    Songs not bad. Sounds strikingly like a rocking Shania Twain. Lee/Shania both highly appealing aesthetically.

    The Brink

    While we are speaking to nice songs and solid bands that we may have missed, Sheffields The Brink is just that and according to their FB they are still kicking about and working on a new release. BOy I would really like to find the couple EP's they mention the released. https://www.facebook.com/thebrinkband/ https://youtu.be/In2Wo-MXbFc

    The Brink

    Nice. Guess I should get on the payroll over at Frontiers as they seem to sign all the bands I post here at HH...

    Dokken new live reunion CD/DVD

    So I will go first and say that is the best Dokken track since Dream Warriors and George is better than ever if that is possible and Don even manages a medium high note or two. Well done.

    Bulletboys - From Out Of The Skies

    Those are an eclectic mix of tunes that sound nothing like the Bulletboys of 1988 that were a VH replica band. First and last song sound like Buckcherry and the middle one sounds like a Meices tune. As mentioned and I will disagree but not shithouse but not what you would want from your BB.

    Dokken new live reunion CD/DVD

    That In My Dreams clip sounds very good. Sure the highs aren't there vocally but at least Don didn't go all lounge lizard on it and of course the band is as tight as ever. For being almost 30 years after the heyday it is excellent.

    New STATION Release

    I do love me some Station. Still need to get the latest might need a 2'fer...

    Wow. This is some nicely done dolled up glammy goodness. Like Kiss was fronted by Andrew Wood and wrote a great record! Sorry if there is a thread but searching Wicked is dodgy... https://www.facebook.com/thebandwicked/ https://www.wickedrocknrollofficial.com/ From their FB page: WICKED began in 2012 in Utica, NY when two brothers, Chad Michael “The Queen of Hearts” and Danny Doll “The Ace of Spades,” set out to capture the steamy emotion and the explosive power of 1970’s Rock & Roll. Scotty V followed suit as the “Jack of Diamonds” and the band began to cultivate their songwriting. They combined the bombast and larger-than-life energy of KISS, the alien seduction of Ziggy Stardust, and the gutsy machismo and vocal harmonies of Starz. From these elements and under the influence of intense heat and pressure, WICKED crystallized into the pure essence of Rock N Roll. WICKED found their wildcard with “The Joker,” GG (Gunnar), and the boys immediately slammed their heavy, leather heels onto the stage. The WICKED boys, with 100,000 watts of personality, exude the attitudes of Las Vegas, Hollywood and NYC. WICKED electrified thousands of fans at the 2013 Rocklahoma Music Festival with Guns N’ Roses, Twisted Sister, Motorheard, Halestorm, Seether, Cheap Trick and many more. They have also brought their high-voltage live show to cities all over the East Coast and Mid-West, including New York City, playing with acts such as Spread Eagle, Survivor, Crashdïet and others. WICKED released and supported a special-edition vinyl record called “LIFE ALIVE.” Going against the grain of the music industry we know today, the record was recorded 101% live to give their fans hope that Rock N Roll can once again be raw, exciting and authentic to the core of what live Rock N Roll started as. In a day and age of great arena acts disappearing, WICKED is poised and ready to fill the glamorous heels of our influences and become the Rock N Roll Superheroes our world needs today. The band’s fun high-energy songs and captivating live performances will continue to unite fans under the flag of “101% Rock & Roll!
