Not bad, singer sounds bit like Robert Mason

 

Jeezus wept he does. Sounds a whole lot like Robert Mason!

 

It's not horrendous... sounds a lot like Bulletboys, to be honest. Not great... but yeah, not bad.

I kinda dig it. It's not amazing or anything. But it does sound like Robert Mason fronting BulletBoys. :lol:

I am always curious to hear how good or terrible the bands will sound. Glad the singers voice is similar. Definite plus

I got tired of waiting for these guys to do something and totally missed that they finally put out a song. I agree, it's pretty cool and extremely Robert Mason-esque!

The Robert Mason comparisons peaked my interest. I've been checking out Shane Tassart's solo work. I'm liking it. I can understand the Mason comments,  but i'm getting more of a Paul Laine vibe from thjs track. Either way i'm looking forward to an album.

Looks like Shane is out and a war has begun:

LAUGHS, DRAMA & SURGERY
Lies, Deceit & Treachery singer meltdown, “I’m out”, band reacts

 

Facebook — Who needs reality TV when we have reality internet.

Lies, Deceit & Treachery singer Shane Tassart has took to his personal Facebook to unload his feelings on some recent happenings within the group.

The back story is that Lies, Deceit & Treachery were (reportedly) offered a spot on the Monsters Of Rock Cruise in February. But Tassart notes in his post that he has to have surgery during the same timeframe.

In a nutshell it appears that there is a band break up and here are the dirty details from the members themselves.

“As many of you know, I have a tumor that is being removed in February. The monsters of rock cruise is also in February. A gig that has never been offered and there is no contract for. That being said the three other members of LDT want to play this gig so bad that instead of waiting for me to heal they are choosing to replace me.” wrote Tassart

The band is made up of  Mick Sweda on guitar, Lonnie Vencent on bass and Jimmy D’Anda who are 75% BulletBoys and 100% rock veterans.

All have appeared in other signed and touring projects dating back to mid 80’s with King Kobra and in recent times with D’Anda slammin’ cans for Lynch Mob. 

Tassart has been toiling around the scene for many years as well, but never reached the level of his bandmates, who he refers to as “the rockstars” in his recent rant and claims the ride (band) was “driven by backstabbing and drama.”

Tassart continues: “I told each of them if they used someone else on such a high profile gig I am out. I thought we were a band but found out again that they are the rockstars and what I did in the band was unimportant and anyone could do what I did. I am heartbroken but relieved.” 

The singer ends his rant with a thank you to fans and adds; “I’m out.” 

Tassart’s original post has now been removed, but not before it stirred the pot.

D’Anda reacted with the following on his Facebook page: “Unfortunately the singer for Lies Deceit & Treachery has opted out of being in the band , though he sees it differently is besides the point .. I see a lot of hate on his page and that’s understandable when relationships come to an end… I just want to put it out there that I’ve always considered you my friend and always will, it’s just unfortunate that things went this way. I wish you and your family nothing but the best in the future.”

Sweda a man of few words, but many riffs writes: “As for recent events, I will say this: In the frantic rush to judgement, one need not break a sweat or even arise. One need only stroke a few careless keys to feel empowered enough to display the full depth of their ignorance.”

Tassart on the other hand has posted ten times and writing things like: “I am fine and know that I will be singing in public sooner than later. It just won’t be with those guys. Am I hurt and upset? Very much so but I will get over it. I always do.” and “I know that by closing a door, it left one to open for something even greater. It was a stepping stone.”

Lies, Deceit & Treachery have updated their official Facebook page with an image of the 3 members, minus Tassart.

Log onto the Metal Sludge Gossip Boards to see what fans and bloggers are saying about this.

Happy New Year everyone from Metal Sludge.

Well.... That's a shame. I'll still be keeping my eye on Shane Tassart.

I sent a FB message to the band's page posting Marq's crappy new "D-Evil" video.

Funny response:

You're awesome, Russ! His ugly mug...not so much. Thanks, brother!!

" Lies, Deceit & Treachery ", sounds like an apt name.

 

To be fair though, Tassart says its a "high profile" gig, so why would the band not want to play it?

Would not be the first time a band has used a sub when someone is out of action, and if its a decent pay day, and a one of show, why would he be so against it for them?

I know that you cannot take a the sound of a gig recorded on a phone as a 100% indicator, but overall I do not like those vocals.

Say what you want about Torien being a dick etc, but his voice is suited to these songs, this guy not so much.

Shame that didn't work out as that 'Without you' song is pretty cool. I like it.  

BTW, anyone notice a cool song on the last Bulletboys album? Shamelessly commercial effort, but I love 'Once upon a crime.'

    • Isn't this just basically Liberty N Justice without the drummer and bassist? In fact, seven of the twelve songs already feature on the last Liberty N Justice album from 2014.
    • that's disappointing as a review I read said that it was grittier. Hey ho 
    • yeah whatever. I really think you are over exaggerating here as it's just not that bad.  But i do listen mostly on Spotify through pretty bass heavy cans so maybe that's it. Good production / bad production all sounds pretty much the same on that lol. Gone are my high end audio days 
    • Let's end this now.
      There is no possible positive outcome for further discussion.
      FWIW,they're both painful for me compared to AFL.
    • haha, We had our honeymoon in Thailand 12 years ago.
      Going back because it was opportunistic and also because all the traveling we do (around 4 o 5 overseas trips annually) are either work related or pretty fast paced taking in the sights etc.

      Since we've been to Phuket before we're hoping it's forced relaxation to a degree. Also,we're staying in the same hotel we honeymooned in, which is kinda cool. Let me know how you found the Philippines.
      Some friends and I celebrate major birthdays with an OS trip which is next year.
      One of them is trying for vegas. I complained that he'd want a week there. He came back with "nah, a long weekend is enough"
      He missed the point. I wouldn't fly to LA for a week, let along a long weekend, so I'm looking for alternates.
    • This one is fantastic. Will check them out.
    • Haha, I was going to put a thread up for that album tomorrow, when I have time to sit down and put some ratings on it. But I agree, sounded great. Probably the best modern rock album I've heard this year. Loved my first few listens of it - some really, really catchy/melodic choruses. There's a lot of bands who do this ADTR type of sound, and some are average but occasionally some do stand out from the pack. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard the Sink The Ship album. If I remember right, the first track is all balls to the wall and I was worried it was just going to be another pass. But a a few more clean vocals and big hooks later, and I was totally sold on it. Good stuff. I think this 'Everything' song was up at the top of my faves. 
    • Glad to see another positive comment for this one.  The album hasn't gotten much attention here, but I think it is worth checking out as well.
    • I like these guys  will give the new songs a listen for sure I'd suggest checking out a new album from  a band called Sink the Ship actually , sound a bit like these guys although heavier  
    • Nice. I'll check their previous albums out.
