Tales From the Porn


Captain Howdy

Recommended Posts

Brazilian band "Tales From The Porn" (shit name, I know) will be releasing their debut album in Sept.

Initially only available from a Brazilian website, a European distributor will be announced soon (but they will export to America apparently).

They managed to get Stevie Rachelle to sing for them, so will at least have some familiarity and not have some bad south American accent on vocals.

Stevie describes the sound as Skid Row meets Cinderella meets Ratt (although obviously Tuff must factor in the sound somewhere too ha ha).

 

They have a song available on Soundcloud, and it does sound good (the guitar melody certainly sounds like Ratt to me, with a hint of Back for more in it).

Lyrically it is a bit cheesy, but it does sound pure 80s hair metal (the album will feature a cover of Dangerzone just in case it needed more 80s cred).

I don't love the lead vocals (but I don't hate them) but I do love that riff. Very cool. And overall, very authentically 80's. Definitely something I am interested in. Cool song.

 

It actually does have a pretty heavy Tuff vibe in quite a few places. Guitar-wise and backing vocals and all... very Tuff-esque.

The Tuff vibe has to be there considering Stevie is on vocals, but considering how he has done other stuff since then that does not sound like Tuff musically, its actually good to hear him going back to his roots.

The riff is there for sure.

Yeah, definitely. Not even Shameless ever really sounded much like Tuff... even when they were good. ;) But this sounds like something worthwhile since the Tuff days. He never had a great voice, but it seems more obviously bad these days. But as long as he's making music like Tuff I'm a happy dude.

I think I would have preferred the song without the Stevie on vocals. The tune and the riff as mentioned is huge but Stevie's vocals seem strained and a bit week especially compared to the chorus. The cheesy lyrics are fine hell its butt rock after all.

 

The band should 1 change the name and 2 go with a local screamer as Brazil has two gaggles of quality musicians.

Holy shit, that is seriously awesome. Not to mention, it's the best filmclip of 2017. But I absolutely love the song.

 

As for getting a local screamer, Terry... I dunno, mate. I don't think I've ever heard a good Brazilian vocalist. I'd probably take Rachelle over any locals. He sounds much better on this song.

Never bothered with this.
Saw Stevie mention it on Facebook a few times, but I guess I just assumed it was a rerelease of a Tuff album (which happens every year in some form)
His vicals are a lot like Keifer's and Pearcy's in that they are a bit harsh and take a bit of getting used to.

What I really like about that song is the Vito Bratta-esque guitar riffs.
Very cool, will have to check out the album

See these kinda vocals are really my thing so they don't really take much getting used to for me. Being a predominantly glam/sleaze orientated fan, the likes of the above mentioned fit right in with the likes of Vince Neil, Axl Rose and Dizzy Dean for me.

I'm a big fan of Cinerella, Ratt, GNR, Lizzy Borden, Jackyl, Myles Kennedy, Bruce Dickinson, Blackie Lawless, Richie Kotzen, high picth Mark Slaughter, etc
But every time I put on a new album by one of those bands it takes a few listens to attune to the vocals again.
- get in the vibe of the voice or whatever.

But I never really got others, like Lemmy, recent Brian Johnson, and all the ACDC clone bands

GUNS Announce Signing With CLEOPATRA RECORDS For New Studio Album May 30, 2024   Hard rock veterans L.A. GUNS have announced a new partnership with renowned indie label Cleopatra Records for the next chapter of their historic career. Vocalist Phil Lewis and founder/guitarist Tracii Guns are set to continue the band's renaissance that began in 2016 and continues to revitalize L.A. GUNS' massive fanbase as never before. L.A. GUNS' next studio album will be the first fruit of the band's reunion with Cleopatra Records, a label known for its diverse roster and innovative approach to music production. The collaboration comes at a pivotal moment for L.A. GUNS, featuring a mix of classic members and fresh faces, which is set to deliver an album that both honors their legacy and explores new creative horizons.   Brian Perera, owner Cleopatra Records, Inc., said: "I'm thrilled to have L.A. GUNS back home, completing a full circle journey with them. From my early days printing their t-shirts in my parents' garage — side by side with GUNS N' ROSES — to now, I am genuinely excited to welcome them home with a new recording contract at Cleopatra Records. It's not just a signing; it's a celebration of our shared history and a promising future together." Tracii added: "Brian and I go back to the '80s when he began in the business making t-shirts. Since then, we have done multitudes of recordings together, including L.A. GUNS! Coming back to Brian and Cleopatra's creative environment really feels like coming home now 40 years later and our excitement once again for the future is through the roof! LET'S GO!!!" L.A. GUNS' latest studio album, "Black Diamonds", came out in April 2023. It was the fourth studio album since the much-welcome reunion of the band's core foundation of Lewis and Guns. It followed the well-received studio albums "The Missing Peace", "The Devil You Know" and "Checkered Past", plus the live release "Made In Milan", and a covers EP "Another Xmas In Hell". In April 2021, a settlement was reached between drummer Steve Riley and Guns and Lewis over the rights to the L.A. GUNS name. Under the terms of the settlement agreement, Guns and Lewis continue to operate under the L.A. GUNS trademark, while Riley and his bandmates from the other version of L.A. GUNS were allowed to perform and record under the new name RILEY'S L.A. GUNS. Riley died last October at the age of 67. L.A. GUNS was formed in 1983 and have sold over six million records, including 1988's "L.A. Guns" and 1990's "Cocked And Loaded", both of which were certified gold. "Cocked And Loaded" contained the hit single "The Ballad Of Jayne" that went to No. 33 on Billboard's Hot 100 and No. 25 on the Mainstream Rock charts. From the mid-'90s to the mid 2000s, L.A. GUNS continued to tour and release new music. Following their successful performance at SiriusXM's Hair Nation festival in September 2016, L.A. GUNS went into the studio to record the critically acclaimed "The Missing Peace", which was the highest-selling release for Frontiers Music Srl in 2017. Their 12th album, "The Devil You Know", was released in 2019 to the same critical acclaim. Since reuniting, Tracii and Phil continue to tour around the world with L.A. GUNS, which currently includes Johnny Martin (bass) and Ace Von Johnson (guitar).
    • Nobody's Business-Lou Reed
    • Signing out makes it sound like he is quitting though or this is his final album. Signing back in would make more sense with it being his return. And to be honest, this "NEW" name by the recent band pretending to be Autograph is awful, and they should have maybe used a name that reflects the original band name through one of their album titles. Sure "Sign In" or "Signing in" would have made a better name than "Autograph Beyond"
    • I am guessing it may be AI generated. It reminds me more of Dokken than MC.
    • Sounds better to me...only one thing...it doesn't sound like Motley Crue...be that now or in the 80's.
    • Interesting.  That definitely sounds better to me.
    • Good song! Have given the new album a listen.  I was kind of lukewarm on the debut.  Liked some of it, but it ultimately it didn't have much staying power for me I think mostly because it just all felt so familiar.  I think only 3 songs survived into my playlists from it (1989, On The Run and Tomorrow).     As for the new one, I'm liking about half of it.  For me, it starts off great but loses some steam in the 2nd half.  I'd say Last To Know and Unchain My Heart are probably my early favorites on the album.  Frankly, Unchain My Heart my be my favorite song this band has done.  Teenage Rebel, Victorious and We Come Alive all pretty good though.  Not really much beyond those songs grabbing me right now but maybe some other songs will grow on me.  Or maybe it won't have much staying power again like the debut....we'll see I guess. Overall, I think initially I like it a little more than the debut but it's pretty close.  Actually, I think if I could combine both albums then it would make 1 really killer album
