Blistering Records is proud to announce the worldwide signing of U.S. hard rock legends LILLIAN AXE.

 

Derrick, Eric, Ken, Sam & Steve are so excited about joining the Blistering Records roster of artists and look forward to a long, successful venture recording their music for the label.

 

While searching for a new label over the past year, Lillian Axe was looking for a record company who respected their past, but more importantly wanted the band to be part of their present and future. Blistering Records proved to be the most aggressive suitor for Lillian Axe making the decision an easy one. The Axe men were equally thrilled to become the flagship artist with this fast rising international company who already boasts releases from melodic rock heroes like Joe Lynn Turner, Glenn Hughes, Jorn & House Of Lords!

 

Lillian Axe, having re-established themselves in 2007 & 2008, look forward to 2009 as the year of The Axe! They will embark on a world tour this June in support of their new CD, Sad Day On Planet Earth. The ambitious 12 month trek will take them across the United States, Canada, Europe & Japan. Every city & every festival that wants Lillian Axe shall have them!

 

Although, Lillian Axe never forgets its glorious past, their sound is very modern. Musically speaking, Sad Day On Planet Earth is by far their strongest album. With a rare balance of continuity & variety showcasing their veteran song writing chops, radio formats from Active to Mainstream & Loud Rock will find something to love on this amazing record. Fourteen tracks of pure Lillian Axe to rock the music world out of it's collective slumber!

 

The songs that will be appearing on Sad Day On Planet Earth were written by main Axe man Steve Blaze & include: Megaslowfade, Ignite, Divine, Down Below The Ocean, Jesus Wept, Within Your Reach, Sad Day On Planet Earth, Fire Blood The Earth & Sea, The Grand Scale Of Finality, Cold Day In Hell, Blood Raining Down On Her Wings, Hibernate, Kill Me Again & Nocturnal Symphony.

 

The album artwork is being created by Peter Tsakiris, a major force in the industry who has created covers for Dio, Twisted Sister, Deep Purple, Ted Nugent, Overkill, Jackyl & Warrior Soul to name a few!

 

Lillian Axe sends heartfelt thanks the rock music community for the opportunity to continue making the music they have believed in their entire career & look forward to doing so for many years to come!

 

Keep an eye out for more news on Lillian Axe as we get closer to the birth of Sad Day On Planet Earth.

Wow, that was quick.

 

I'd love to be able to give the songs a spin if they're on myspace, but I have to be completely honest. For a band I have loved for a lot of years, they did kind of lose me on 'Waters Rising'. I anticipated that album like I would a sexual liason. But it was shit. And I don't see this new one being any better, to be honest. In fact, I have absolutely 0 expectations. I think it'll be 'Waters Rising Part 2'... which I have no time for.

 

Still, for the sake of the memories I will try it.

:lol: How'd I misread that. I thought the album was pretty much done - did I see all the song titles and stuff? Wow, that's forward planning.

Face it, our beloved Lillian Axe is no more. :(

 

I just hope it's "modern" in a good way, and not in a 'Waters Rising' way.

I agree completely. Ron Taylor may not have been Lillian Axe so to speak, but I don't think there is a Lillian Axe without him. Just like it would not really be Lillian Axe without Stevie Blaze.

 

To be honest, the last album still had a faint Lillian Axe sound to it... but really bad Lillian Axe, which is not something we'd been introduced to in their early albums. The guy even sounds like Ron to a degree, but if you ask me it's just not the "real" Lillian Axe.

As this is a record label thread, I should also point out that this gem is out on Blistering Records, available for order now. In the vein of The Poodles, but imo better:

Ron Taylor is in the Dallas band Lowside with Lillian Axe bassist (through the 90's) Darrin DeLatte.

 

If you meant Johnny Vines ... fuck knows what he's up to.

What do Lowside sound like?

    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.

    • FireHouse officially name Nate Peck as their new full-time frontman and lead vocalist Metal Sludge — News from the FireHouse camp as they announce their new lead vocalist. Fans of FireHouse and our readers here at Metal Sludge are all aware of the unfortunate news of CJ Snare‘s sad passing back in April and now the band have named his replacement. The band had been performing with fill-in vocalist Nate Peck since 2023 when Snare had to take a leave to deal with medical issues and surgery. Now the band are embracing the move forward and have officially named Nate Peck as their new frontman and vocalist. Read the band’s full statement below as was shared on their social media.     Nate Peck and FireHouse paying tribute to CJ Snare   **AMERICAN ROCK BAND FIREHOUSE ANNOUNCES NEW VOCALIST, NATE PECK** With the untimely passing of CJ Snare, American rock band, FireHouse, has officially announced their new lead vocalist, Nate Peck. Peck, 2023 American Idol golden ticket recipient, performed an outstanding audition for Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Richie praised Nate’s performance saying, “That was brilliant…The best rock singer EVER that we’ve had. You’ve got it!” Katy Perry looked to the sky and said, “Actually, he’s SO good!” High praises from all 3 judges got him unanimous consent to move onto the next level of the competition. Peck ultimately decided to leave the show to pursue his career in music his own way: playing live music in Nashville’s booming rock scene and guest singing with national artists like Jack Russell’s Great White. Peck was first introduced to Bill Leverty by Jack Russell’s Great White guitarist, Robbie Lochner. Leverty explained, “When I first heard Nate’s vocal range, tone and control, I immediately knew that he’d be the perfect fit, filling in for CJ who was recovering from surgery. I advocated hard to get Nate out to play at New England Rockfest in October of 2023. He learned our songs very quickly and absolutely crushed it at the show. I then sent some video to CJ and he agreed saying, THAT’S the guy!” CJ and Nate immediately became very good friends. According to Peck, “CJ and I would talk regularly, a few times a week. He would give me vocal coaching, advice on touring and life in general. He was definitely a great mentor for me.” Peck has been singing with FireHouse since October of 2023, wowing audiences around the country. “I am honored to be working with these guys and singing these great songs.” FireHouse music will stand the test of time. Catch them on tour performing their hits “Love of a Lifetime”, “When I Look Into Your Eyes”, “Don’t Treat Me Bad”, “All She Wrote”, “Reach for the Sky”, “Shake and Tumble” and many more, bringing the fans the melodic hard rock they’ve loved for decades. https://metalsludge.tv/firehouse-officially-name-nate-peck-as-their-new-full-time-frontman-and-lead-vocalist/
