Wicked

Recommended Posts

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...

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!

I had them at The M-Pre Party" a few years back... entertaining live band. I don't expect much from them as their management already believes they are "Rock Stars" and is running a strictly over hyped campaign to sell them.

I got the album this morning, and it isnt bad. Certainly heard better, but it has some good tunes on it.

As mentioned already, the one thing I worry about with them is that their management seems to have them thinking they really are huge stars already. It almost comes across as a comedy movie like Spinal Tap with regards to how the management hype them.

    • Awesome! Thanks! I also have some demos of Dennis Cameron from *after* Angelica that he was working on that never saw the light of day (in case anyone would be interested).
    • Here you go. Angelica's demos with Andy Lyon on vocals: https://we.tl/t-vc17XGXORd
    • only a man has one of the greatest intros to a rock song ever 
    • from various sources: "Right Turn" is the new album from singer / songwriter DANIEL TRIGGER, an indie artist who has been releasing several records since 2005, plus albums under the Trigger name. We have listened to some of them but his overall heavy rock style never convinced us. However, things are changing with "Right Turn". I can see why the album will be released by MelodicRock Records soon; this material is inspired by the classic Melodic Rock sound from the '80s.

      One thing that will surprise the listener is that Daniel hails from the Midlands in the UK and not the US as the music on here would suggest. Bringing to mind Mitch Malloy (in his early years), Johnny Lima and late '80s Bon Jovi, Daniel Trigger knows his way around a melodic tune and chorus.

      Lyrically he harks back to the glory days of melodic rock on ‘Days Gone By’. ‘Drive’ is a tune made for just that – top down on the car (or windows for most of us) with this melodic rock gem blasting out on the speakers. There's a clear Malloy feeling in the classy melodic rock pattern of 'Running Into The Wind', with its rip roaring piano riff including acoustic guitar into the mix but used as 'electric' riffage.

      Midtempo 'Hold Back The Night' brings to mind Bon Jovi's New Jersey era, really 'American' in its delivery, 'Heavy Heart' has a catchy, pure '80s melodic rock chorus, while we have a classic rock vibe on the fun ‘Rock N Roll Party’. The only ballad here, ‘There In Your Heart’, bring to mind Jon Bon Jovi solo album, or better Johnny Lima, as Trigger's voice is very similar to them.   If you have listened to some of Daniel Trigger previous albums, forget 'em, he has 'turned' timeless melodic rock here on the properly titled "Right Turn". There's sweet melodious vocals, catchy choruses, a warm production, and while Daniel performs all instruments, he was cleverly enough to bring a very good guitar player in Jay Maddison to provide the clean solos and round up very entertaining songs. Daniel Trigger will be a new name to many and he is worth listening to based on the melodic rock delights he has provided here. Highly Recommended

    • I don't really mind the extra guitar effects... unnecessary noodling, but actually well played, and no one should ever argue the dude's guitar prowess.  But those vocal chords have obviously taken a pounding over the past 35 years.  I would have lost a bet had someone challenged me whether or not that was Aldo Nova on vox.  I would have laughed and called you crazy for implying such jest.  Appears the joke is on me!   This one is not on my buy list.
