Pariah - To Mock a Killingbird

Recommended Posts

Anyone else love this rocking disc? For me it was always one of the great albums of the early 90's.

I remember Metal Edge pumping this one up for what seemed like two years before it came out but when it came out the scene was over and then one of the Ellison brothers killed himself, I can't remember if it was Kyle or Sims. To bad because this band kicked ass IMO and were great for those that loved bands that stradled the line between Hard Rock and Metal like Skid Row. I know these guys were legends in the Austin scene. Has any of our HH members from Texas seen these guys back in the day or met any of the guys before?

Another one I haven't heard in years. I think I thought it was okay but not sure if I thought too much of it... hence it not featuring much in my stereo. I should give it another listen.

Great band! They should have been bigger. Sahm is still active in music, he also has a myspace page. :)

WTF? Are you kidding me? Has aliens kidnapped my friend Jarred?

Surely he hit the wrong smiley and it should of looked something like this. :banger: or even this :headbanger:

 

 

 

I'll check it out again but I bought it at a pawn shop years ago & I thought it blew. If I like it now, I'll take it back ;)

Bought the tape 100 years ago and pkayed the shite out of it. Great band,great sound and Wes is on target with the description of To Mock A Killingbird (great album title even). Nab the Make Believe CD that was released in 92 by the band, this to is a winner!

 

Unfortunately bad timing on these releases, a few years earlier and who knows...

These guys were good. Actually saw them in the USA back in the day. They put on a great show. It was Sims who killed himself. He suffered from depression and the band being dropped from their label quickly after the release of the this CD made him break. These guy had enough songs for multiple albums after this CD.

 

Shandon Sahm, the drummer, sings in a 70's type band now. Him and the others are still actively playing around in different bands.

 

On another related note: Shandon's brother Shawn, a guitarist, had a cool band also back in the day called PREZENCE (which unfortunately is still being bootlegged by Rock-It/Time Warp Records to this day. :bigboom: )

 

PARIAH and PREZENCE were both cool bands everyone should check out. Although PARIAH was abit more sleazier before the 'TO MOCK...' CD.

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?

    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound! Watch the video "Distance Between us":    
    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
