From Frontiers:

BREAKING NEWS: George Lynch, Jeff Pilson, Mick Brown, and Robert Mason have announced that they are changing the name of their previously announced new band, Superstroke, to THE END: machine.

“The recordings are nearly done and we are really happy with the way it is turning out,” says bassist/producer Jeff Pilson. “We think that, notwithstanding the obvious nod to our past experiences together, The End: machine sound has a unique identity. Sonically, this is not just ex-Dokken members with a different singer or a rebooted incarnation ofLynch Mob. This is a new sound. Everyone has been doing great on the album and there is a lot of energy and a lot of focus."

THE END: machine, featuring George Lynch, Jeff Pilso, and Mick Brown from the classic Dokken lineup together with singer Robert Mason of WARRANT (and previously, Lynch Mob) will release their debut album in Spring 2019 via Frontiers Music Srl.

Sounding pretty good to me....Basically like Lynch Mob to my ears.  I've grown to like Mason's voice and he sounds right at home here.

I can't believe I missed this original post. I was wondering what happened to Superstroke. Absolutely cannot wait for this one.

solid tune, hopefully they have a few uptempo tracks on the album, I'd like to hear George cut loose with some monster riffs and solos

I too missed this "superstroke" post, very glad they changed the band name as that name was a floater.

The song is a good one though and they are all sounding very good together. The songs verse reminds me of an Alice n Chains song but the the rest is a huge 80's anthem, an interesting amalgamation. 

I am intrigued to hear more and I have always like JP, he is an underated bassist, songwriter and vocalist.

I was disappointed in this song. I was expecting Dokken/Lynch Mob classic sound and it sounds more like Dokken Shadowlife filler.

From Frontiers:

BREAKING NEWS: The End machine, featuring George Lynch Fan Page, Jeff Pilson, "Wild" Mick Brown, & Robert Mason, to Release Debut Album on March 22, 2019 via Frontiers Music Srl. 

Hard rock titans collide for THE END machine, a brand-new project that features classic-era Dokken members George Lynch, Jeff Pilson, and Mick Brown as well as current WARRANT singer Robert Mason. The band will be releasing their self-titled debut on March 22nd via Frontiers Music SRL.

Surely, some fans may be wondering to themselves, isn’t this just Dokken without Don Dokken? “Musically, of course there's bound to be moments that will be reminiscent of Dokken. That's only logical,” says bassist Jeff Pilson. “But, my guess is there will be less of that than people would expect. Some people who've heard it say they think it's closer to Lynch Mob than Dokken, but really it is pretty much it’s own thing. We allowed ourselves to get a little deeper than either of those projects really have, while still staying extremely melodic and not being afraid of good old-fashioned guitar rock. Maybe Lynch Mob, a bit of Dokken, but then some 70's guitar rock added in. George [Lynch] is playing fantastic on this…very inspired. Everyone is really, but George covers some new territory here and it's very cool. Plus, the songs as compositions took on their own life, especially adding Robert [Mason] to the writing. That's what I'm most proud of, is the way this stands on its own. It doesn't step on our legacy together one bit, but it has it’s own personality and I think that's important.”

“This is decidedly not me ‘stapled’ onto a DOKKEN record,” adds Mason. “I wouldn't have been involved if that was the intent. Fans will hear bits of our styles in this collection of songs, and while reminiscent signatures are undeniable, The End: machine was purposely built to stand apart and on it’s own merit.”

Lineup:
Robert Mason - Vocals
Mick Brown - Drums
Jeff Pilson - Bass
George Lynch – Guitars

Upon further examination I see that the band is now called The End Machine. This too is a stupid name. I thought in first passing that they were just going by the End and even though that was questionable I let it go.

I will give it a go, but not a fan of this song itself.

The song's okay by me. Hell of a lot better than anything I've heard from this mob in a long time. At least they have a good idea come chorus time. But why the big hairy ballsack is this not just called Lynch Mob? I honestly don't understand. 

In the original post is says 'This is a new sound." If this is a new sound, what was all the shit Lynch Mob were releasing after their first two albums? This sounds 100% more like the original Lynch Mob than any shit they've been releasing since that time. 

Anyway, I hope this is actually a decent album because the doods can certainly play.

I'm guessing none of y'all will be surprised to hear me say "I do  NOT like this one at all."

Seems as though all of the members of this new band are running as far away from the name "Dokken" as possible... They should only be so lucky that any of us old'skool fans would mention them in the same breath.

I'm going to listen to Under Lock And Key right now... I need something to put a smile on my face so early on a Monday morning.

My thoughts too.

I'm kinda on the fence with this tune.  It's okay but isn't really wowing me by any means and not really finding myself wanting to go back for repeat listens.  The guitars sound great and Mason sounds pretty good.  Just would've liked it to be more melodic with harmonies, backing vocals, etc.  I'll need to hear stuff that grabs me more to convince me to buy the album.

It's a bit dark for my taste. It remids me dysfunctional or Lynch/Pilson, I wasn't a fan of those albums.

I prefer Lynch mob's last album to this.

New song still doesn't match the quality of 80's Dokken or early Lynch Mob, but it's solid for what it is.  In fact I enjoyed it more than the first promo track from the upcoming release

I agree.  It's decent but but not sure either song is grabbing me enough to make me want to purchase this.

I've also listened to samples of all songs over on I Tunes Japan and kinda felt the same about what I listened to.

I think what's missing for me is that I'd just like to see more vocal harmonies with bigger choruses, backing vocals, etc. 

It's decent for what it is though....Straight ahead, guitar driven rock. 

I feel pretty much how Glen felt above about the first track....Pretty well played and well sung but not very spectacular or memorable.

    • Dunno him...but it says this person is legendary  couldn't even be bothered to google the name.
    • Yeah, and with the January releases by H.e.a.t, Passion & GOK it looks like the new year is going off with a bang 
    • Hopefully a very nice start to the new year. I'm looking forward to it. 
    • Yeah, I remember the dude from LSD. I don't know about his life after LSD, but seems an odd choice as a first choice producer (even odder after hearing this album).  And yeah, I've never heard the other name either. I'm thinking, after this, that's for a very, very, very, VERY good reason. 
    • I've never seen Def Leppard or Poison, so their set lists would still be fresh to me. Poison only play 8 songs, though? That's soft. I have friends who have seen Def Leppard on recent visits to Australia and they also said they were still very good.  Anyway, I don't for a second think this'll make it to Aussie shores.  I have seen Motley Crue a few years back (possibly on one of their last ever Aussie shows - one of them...). I enjoyed it 'cause I had great seats and I just loved seeing them, but Vince's every 10th word left a little to be desired. 
    • 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
