01.30.09 LILLIAN AXE SIGNS WITH BLISTERING RECORDS

 

"Classic, Heavy, Progressive.....embracing the past...shaping the future." is the battle cry of our new home.

 

Lillian Axe and their manager are proud to announce that Lillian Axe has signed a worldwide recording contract for 4 albums with Swedish Label, Blistering Records. Blistering Records' US office is located in Pittsburgh, PA and the label is distributed by Ryko Distribution in the United States. The U.S. operations of Blistering Records are run by music industry veteran, Jim Pitulski. Jim is well respected in the hard rock and metal community and Lillian Axe is happy to welcome Jim and the Blistering Records staff to our family.

 

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

 

While searching for a new label over the past year, Lillian Axe was looking for a label who wanted the band to be part of their present and future. Blistering Records proved to be the most aggressive suitors for Lillian Axe and that made our decision that much easier to make. Blistering Records wanted Lillian Axe and Lillian Axe wanted to be part of Blistering Records.

 

Lillian Axe, having re-established themselves in 2007 and 2008 look forward to 2009 as the year of The Axe. Lillian Axe will embark on their world tour in June in support of their new CD, "Sad Day On Planet Earth" taking them across the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan. Every city and every festival that wants Lillian Axe will have them. Lillian Axe look forward to being on the road for the next 12 months.

 

Although, Lillian Axe never forgets its past, their sound is very modern. The new CD entitled "Sad Day On Planet Earth" is by far their strongest album musically speaking. There are so many different sounding songs that all forms of radio: Active Rock, Mainstream Rock and Metal Radio will embrace this album. Lillian Axe are happy to be giving this album to a label who truly believes in the band. 14 songs of pure Lillian Axe.

 

The songs that will be appearing on "Sad Day On Planet Earth" were written by Steve Blaze. The song titles are: 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 and Nocturnal Symphony.

 

All the album artwork is being created by Peter Tsakiris, who is a major force in the industry having created album art for Dio, Twisted Sister, Deep Purple, Ted Nugent, Overkill, Jackyl and Warrior Soul to name a few.

 

Once again, we thank you for the opportunity to make the music Lillian Axe has believed in its whole career. Lillian Axe looks forward to making music with you today, tomorrow and in the future.

 

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

By "classic" do they mean 'Classic Lillian Axe' or 'classic rock'? Prog? WTF? Where did Lillian Axe go? :(

The last one wasn't anything like Love & War or Poetic Justice by any stretch, but I still dig the band. I'd like more uptempo songs and less doom and gloom, but the songs titles don't seem to be much in the vain of 80's Hair Rock but more like Power Metal.

I liked the new album actually and will interested to hear the new stuff and IMO the new singer doesn't sound much different than Taylor. But Taylor was awesome and it sucks he's not in the band anymore.

Yeah, don't get me wrong. There were honestly moments on 'Waters Rising' where it literally sounded like Ron Taylor himself. I have nothing in the world against the new guy's voice - in fact if they were still writing good songs he'd be the PERFECT replacement... it's just the songs they have recorded since Ron left are f*cking terrible.

Backed 110%. And most of those songs had been floating around as demos with Ron Taylor singing them and I didn't like 'em then either.

 

You can't polish a turd!! :unsure:

I still say "Water Rising" is right up there with all of Lillian Axe's other releases. I was a little worried that Lillian Axe would totally suck without Ron Taylor... but I was more then happy with the "Water Rising" release. I saw Lillian Axe live about a month after the CD was released and again was very happy with the newest line up. It isn't often I buy a CD on the day it comes out any more...but I'll make an exception for this one. I should again be seeing Lillian Axe just after the release of the new disc.

 

All this being said... I would prefer Rob Taylor to be a member of Lillian Axe. But there is no way I will desert this band because he is not.

    • 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/
