Rough Cutt - Black Rose


Recommended Posts



Press release:

Rough Cutt announce the Worldwide premier of their New Video and Single: Black Rose.

Premiering March 25th at 3:33 pm eastern time on Facebook live at Bravewords.com

and all Bravewords Platforms. Join us also for a live Q&A with the band following the World premier of the video.

Hailing from the Sunset Strip’s hair metal days, Rough Cutt has gained a faithful audience worldwide and is excited to announce the release of their new video and single, Black Rose! It brings forth a new sound with reminiscent elements of their first two Warner Bros albums, and a new lineup with pioneers Chris “The Count” Hager on guitars and Dave Alford on drums. New guitarist and Shrapnel Records recording artist Darren Householder joins the ranks along with Oregon native and Pacific Northwest musician Jeff Buehner on bass guitar . Filling the shoes of the singer was no easy task, and required a dynamic talent and presence. Rough Cutt is happy to introduce new singer and Sunset Strip veteran Steven St. James! Steven fronted the prominent LA band “Sarge” in the 80’s and soon became a Motown recording artist. His soaring range and melodic sense will usher you in to a new sound, new songs, and yes, the new Rough Cutt.

I agree, St. James sounds pretty good.  The song isn't bad by any means but a little lackluster as a single to showcase a new era of the band.  The chorus reminds me a little of something Paul Stanley might have recorded during the mid-80s.

    • Fuck me, he is off on one again: https://rockcelebrities.net/michael-sweet-stryper-is-the-most-hated-band-of-all-time/ Just a few comments that make me cringe: “We may very well be the most ‘hated’ band of all time but we’ve persevered and we’re still here. We are The Yellow & Black Attack. We are Stryper.” Now I am sure there are bigger bands out there who have more haters than Stryper ever had. Whether this is for right or wrong reasons, Nickleback, U2 and Coldplay spring to mind as bands that have got more hate than Stryper over the years, and they mostly ignore it because they choose to acknowledge the millions who do love them rather than cry about those that hate them. “When I listen to Stryper (as an outsider and as unbiased as I possibly can be) I can hear some pretty cool stuff going on. And at the risk of sounding egotistical, I think Oz and I are one of the better guitar duos to have cranked those Mesas up and harmonize in the studio and on stage. I don’t know, maybe I’m just dreaming and we do suck. Oh well, if this is what ‘sucking’ looks and sounds like, I’ll take it.” How can you ever listen to your own music as an unbiased outsider? The guy is blatantly so thin skinned that he just cannot accept some people just do not like his music, or do not like overly preachy christian music. I have said before on here, I really like Stryper and some of Michaels projects outside of the band, but I have had serious burn out on anything he releases just because he releases way too fucking much. And his attitude has seriously turned me off of supporting him. I have not bought the last few Stryper albums. There are a couple of solo albums I am missing. Didn't buy the last Sweet & Lynch. And I only bought the first Sunbomb when it was mega cheap recently. The quality is hit or miss, which I think is down to him going for quantity over quality.  
    • Yeah will look forward to this also   £16 shipping!! I'll wait for a UK seller to stock  
    • Another band that really is not the band it is pretending to be
    • There seems to be no other takers, so here's the solution highlighted.     
    • Dodges Vs Diamondbacks. With this organist playing while car burns.  
    • I quite like this album. Best songs for me are Straight Up Jack, Nobody Gets Out Alive and Southside of Hell.  Score: 4 out of 6. 
    • New song 'Ghost In Me'.    
    • This cd is listed twice as Heard It on the Radio - Volume 1 and Heard It on the Radio Volume 1 and with two different covers 
    • Seems like it would be right up your alley. I'm enjoying the album immensely. French group.            
  • Create New...
