Baltimore Rocks -- Blast From The Past

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I hope one day I can listen to all the samples in this thread to see who the good ones actually were, but no doubt a lot of them looked very cool, if nothing else. I also find it crazy that there were this many unsigned bands from the one area who, like I say, if nothing else at least looked the part.

I've listened and some good some bad some indifferent but hey they were doing it so props for that.

 

And Dave always mentions how that Baltimore/NY/DC scene was ridiculously happening.

 

That said and maybe it was just the era but those scenes were all over. No one talks about but me but Seattle/Tacoma had a monster glam/hard rock/metal scene back then, with just as many still unknown bands. I guess it just depends where you were.

 

And as always nice posts, please continue. Of not that singer for Wizekrak is the closest thing to Brett Michael in mannerisms not vocally I've ever seen.

I have some stuff from the bands already mentioned, like the 7"single from Dagger (need the demo), etc. There were some great heavy/power/power/prog/doom bands there from which I have a ton of stuff.

 

Still looking for original demotapes from Manifest ( with Bobby Hicks, one of my all time favorite singers-RIP), Assailant, En force (great stuff, hardly you can go wrong when you took your name from 'ryche's best song ever).

All I have nowadays is the stuff uploaded from cassettes to the computer. A lot of my stuff has been borrowed and never returned over the years. So I am glad a uploaded the ones I did.

The drummer revealed in a social media post that he has been battling the disease since this past spring, saying that he is "feeling much better and stronger now" and vowing to play with QUIET RIOT later this month and through 2020. "I just want to let all of my friends and fans know what's going on with me and why I have unfortunately missed some appearances this year," Banali said in a statement posted on podcaster Mitch Lafon's Facebook page. "I just want to let all of my friends and fans know what's going on with me and why I have unfortunately missed some appearances this year. Since April 17th, I have been battling stage four pancreatic cancer. "The original prognosis was very scary. I had quite a battle on my hands and it took a lot, but I am thankful to say that after several rounds of chemo and other treatments, I am on the mend. The road ahead is not going to be easy but cancer has met its match and I plan to continue fighting. "I wish I could have been with you all at every QUIET RIOT performance as this is the first time in 38 years I have ever missed a gig," he continued. "Please know that if I had been able to fly on a plane and play a show nothing else would have stopped me. I am feeling much better and stronger now. "I intend to play the QUIET RIOT concert at the Whisky A Go Go on Saturday October 26th and to continue touring in 2020 with QUIET RIOT, so I hope to see you there. I appreciate all the fans that support QUIET RIOT by coming to shows and I hope you will all continue that support as well as keeping me in your thoughts and prayers." QUIET RIOT played several shows this year without Banali, marking the first time ever that the band performed without any of the members from its classic lineup: Banali, singer Kevin DuBrow, guitarist Carlos Cavazo and bassist Rudy Sarzo. At some of QUIET RIOT's recent shows, Banali was replaced by Johnny Kelly (DANZIG, TYPE O NEGATIVE). Banali resurrected QUIET RIOT in 2010, three years after the death of founding member and singer Kevin DuBrow. QUIET RIOT initially featured the late guitar legend Randy Rhoads and went through some early lineup shifts before securing the musicians that recorded the band's multi-platinum-selling 1983 album "Metal Health". Wright has been a part of QUIET RIOT, on and off, since 1982, having initially been involved in the "Metal Health" recordings (he played bass on the tracks "Metal Health" and "Don't Wanna Let You Go"). Grossi was in the last version of the band, from 2004 through 2007, before Kevin passed away, and was asked by Banali to return in 2010. QUIET RIOT went through two vocalists — Mark Huff and Scott Vokoun — before settling on Jizzy Pearl in 2013. Pearl announced his exit from QUIET RIOT in October 2016 and was briefly replaced by Seann Nichols, who played only five shows with the group before the March 2017 arrival of "American Idol" finalist Durbin. Pearl returned to QUIET RIOT in September. QUIET RIOT's new studio album, "Hollywood Cowboys", will be released on November 8 via Frontiers Music Srl.
    • I saw Seb live a couple of years ago, and while he obviously played a mix of Skid Row and solo stuff, it was the Skid Row stuff from the first two albums that really made everyones night. I personally still rate the debut album as their best and one of the top albums of that era.
    • It's basically a pop/rock album with a terrible production but not bad at all. After the first spin it's a 7/10 from me.
    • Ok a limit of 5 then. 
    • But now there are too many options. 
    • Sounds very nice. The band name sounds so familiar, but apparently I've not heard this? I will asap. 
    • Yeah, 'Sound of madness' is pretty decent. Not sure about 'Amaryllis' though. I don't think I thought too much of that. I forget. Overall, though, pretty poor discography. 
    • Awesome band - killer new tune. I will also very much look forward to this. 
    • Holy shit, really? We're more or less the same age.
