I've never seen his name in anything I've read about it! and one would figure if he was, they would drop his name somewhere in the interviews, but I don't know for sure!

No the last I heard it was a newer producer that's produced many new bands but I can't think of the name.

I'm nervous. These guys toured Australia around the same time as Winger and Lynch Mob. Winger were awesome, nailed their older material and played about one song of 'IV' and sure enough they've released a killer album like one might expect based on their setlist. Lynch Mob played all the weakest Lynch Mob songs, excluding all the best tracks and released an album very much like their setlist - just boring bluesy rock. Ratt reminded me a lot of Lynch Mob, and played a lot of their weaker tracks. It always scares me because to me it's a good gauge of where their tastes are at these days. I will always anticipate a new RATT album like I would the birth of a new baby pug, but I am worried about this one. Hope to be proved wrong.

I'm generally in the minority when I say that I really liked the last Ratt album, but that said, I would still like them to return to their roots a little more, or at least adapt their classic sound with a modern edge like Winger and Stryper have done.

I liked the RATT release as well and have never understood why so many fans don't like that disc.

I really like the new Lynch Mob. Sure it's not as good as the first two discs but I still like it a lot.

I do think they should of cut two songs off but overall I think it's a good disc and George sounds great.

I really like the new Lynch Mob as well...I'll check out new Ratt, but I was never a huge fan...a few songs here and there is about it.

The new Lynch Mob is probably a decent disc, but really shares little common musical ground with the first two. If Ratt make a disc that sounds like Ratt (I liked the last disc too) I'll be happy. :)

Ratt stopped being good after Reach for the Sky.

I'll probably get it, but probably won't like it.

 

RIP Robbin, RIP Ratt.

Nuff said.

From Blabbermouth:

 

Californian rockers RATT have set "Infestation" as the title of their new album, due in March 2010 via Loud & Proud/Roadrunner Records. The band's first studio CD in 10 years was produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette, whose credits include PUDDLE OF MUDD, CHEVELLE, SALIVA, LIMP BIZKIT, ALTER BRIDGE and THREE DAYS GRACE, to name a few. The effort — which has been described by singer Stephen Pearcy as a cross between 1984's "Out Of The Cellar" and 1985's "Invasion Of Your Privacy" — marked the first time the group had stepped outside of Los Angeles to track a new CD in 20-plus years.

I really wouldnt say there was much difference sound wise between those two albums, so saying its a cross between them is like saying that something is like a cross between white and white.

Yeah, I agree. Which is good news to me. I LOVE those two albums so if there is any truth to it consider me excited.

Id take the press release with a grain of salt...id love to hear that sound again,but im hugely skeptical.Also when i see the producers credits it makes me that much more of a non believer.The addition of Carlos was a great move.Too bad Juan isn't involved...

I'm actually excited by the producer's name. Sure, the bands he's worked with are generally complete garbage but I don't think any of those bands have ever had a poorly produced album (aside from the actual songs included) and I don't think it'll be in Ratt's plan to release an album that sounds anything like those guys. Yeah, I think it's a good thing. If they can release a traditional Ratt album with a production job like Steel Panther's 'Feel the steel' or Motley Crue's 'SOLA' I think we'll be in for a treat!

Let's just hope the songs are there otherwise the production will be a moot point.

I agree it's all about the songs without a doubt but I do also agree with Geoff that I'm not to worried about who the producer has worked with.

with a band like ratt, ive noticed, when they are on, and they are crankin out rockin tunes, they could be recorded in a garage on a cassette recorder, and they would still sound cool!!

I just hope Pearcy doesnt get too much control.

His solo stuff is hit or miss at best.

 

Bobby has proved that he still is in touch with his melodic rock roots with the SOTU band, and Warren has dabbled here and there, but his solo album wasnt exactly stunning, so I hope the sum of the parts will add up to something more.

The new album 'Infestation' should be out in March. The first single 'Best Of Me' sounds very promising based on the short clip I heard. A world tour as well? Hopefully they come back to Australia.

    • I know, I know. We all know the answer but still I have to ask: So what happened to the "Cessation of Touring Contract" by the Crue?
    • Whoah... much better than I expected before clicking on them. Reminds me vocally of a lighter version of Lizzy Borden crossed with Rob Moratti. I'm going to have to track this one down.
    • from various internet sources: TYGERS OF PAN TANG will release their new album, “Ritual”, next Friday, while this Japanese edition including a bonus track appeared today. This is the band’s second recording by the current Tygers lineup, recorded with the help of renowned Søren Andersen, most recently known for his role as Glenn Hughes’s guitarist. Mastering done by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem). Tygers Of Pan Tang is a legendary band with some legendary albums, but I’m dare to say “Ritual” is one of their best. There’s a classic melodic hard rock feel all over the record, with some irresistible riffing, powerful grooves and catchy choruses. The mastermind here is original member, guitarist Robb Weir. The band’s current phase proves as formidable as its heyday, with longtime drummer Craig Ellis, vocalist Jacopo Meille, bassist Gavin Gray and guitarist Micky Crystal. “Ritual” wastes no time in stampeding the listener with the bursting “Worlds Apart,” one of the heaviest tunes on the album. Fair warning though – the straight forward chorus can stick in your mind for weeks, like a modern day version of “Gangland.” This isn’t the only instance on “Ritual,” this is an album chock full of hook laden rockers. “Destiny” slides in and the ride continues with a soulful voice. The pounding percussion is back and the riff are melodic, precise. The lyrics are thoughtful, and well written, and do tell a story, unlike many of these so-called hits of today in those other genres that just repeat over and over again. Slipping into the triple-twist of the steam train you’re on, comes, “Rescue Me“. There’s a simple riff and hook that becomes infectious, and still has you in its clutches. The vocals, clear and understandable, will have you singing along before you realize you’re doing it. The track that will “Raise Some Hell” is definitely the hidden gem on the record. This has got to be a live track used to get the crowd worked into a frenzy. Fast-paced, and rockin’ as hell. Screaming vocals, a rocket train paced guitar, and drums to match. If this song doesn’t get you off your backside and have your fist-pounding, then shut off the record and go back to your BackStreet Boys, because you’re listening to the wrong music! As this roller coaster continues, you reach the point where you just don’t wanna get off yet, and hope the rest is just as exciting. Luckily, you would be right. “Spoils Of War” might be the most melodic song of the bunch, but this midtempo still rocks hard and the solo kills. Masterfully played track. After a few more thrills, and twists, you know the ride is gaining its way to the final gate, but don’t take the safety bar off just yet. “The Art Of Noise” has yet another trick that will have you raising your fists into the air, and trying to catch your breath once again. Hang on, because you still have to “Sail On” until the end. Maybe not the most exciting part of this ride, but still an effective end. Clear concise vocals and equally as good playing from the rest of the Tygers are ever-present here. So sit back, and enjoy this last bit of this “Ritual” and to hell with keeping your arms and legs inside the ride at all times. “Ritual” may be the bast sounding Tygers album since 1981’s Spellbound, but don’t take me wrong, it’s still a fresh new album that stands on its own. You couldn’t ask for a more beautifully produced album. Presenting a top notch mix and crystal clear recording, the use of modern technology pays homage to the band’s legacy without succumbing to a thin lifeless sound. And songwriting is just as strong, as each musician performance. One of the best classic rock / traditional hard / melodic albums of the year. Raise those fists, and enjoy. Highly Recommended Tracklist: 01 – Worlds Apart 02 – Destiny 03 – Rescue Me 04 – Raise Some Hell 05 – Spoils of War 06 – White Lines 07 – Words Cut Like Knives 08 – Damn You! 09 – Love Will Find a Way 10 – Art of Noise 11 – Sail On JAPAN BONUS TRACK: 12 – Don’t Touch Me There (2019 Version) Robb Weir – Guitars Craig Ellis – Drums Jack Meille – Vocals Gavin Gray – Bass Micky Crystal – Guitars   BUY IT www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/MICP-11527    
    • Well, I can't wait for it.
    • I won't as long as my mom is taking me down there! I know they're great still- this will be my first concert though 😋
    • Don't miss it. They're still amazing live. 
    • Is he really more and more in demand? Or is it simply signing with Frontiers means he is producing?
    • https://meramecmusictheatre.tix.com/Event.aspx?EventCode=1154903 Me & my mom might go together! 
    • Heard of Kane only from the band LSD and I have no clue who the other person is.
