He Is Legend - Air Raid

"Air Raid", is a tune and video from Wilmington, North Carolina's rockers HE IS LEGEND, see it below. The song is taken from the band's latest album, "Few", released on April 28 via Spinefarm Records.

The band's current lineup is front man Schuylar Croom, guitarists Adam Tanbouz and Denis Desloge, bassist Matt Williams and drummer Sam Huff.

The band has enveloped from their previous musical style where they had a blend of Southern metal and Metalcore and now today they mixes a more softer style like Southern rock and alternative metal with a psychedelic rock sludge metal spice.

Like today's tune "Air Raid" where you get a wall of low rumbling sound, gentle vocals before it gets interrupted by a jangling, slack-wristed guitar riff and a vocal with more punch in it's melody. The Video was directed By Justin Reich.

Myles Kennedy - Year Of The Tiger

ALTER BRIDGEs lead singer Myles Kennedy is going solo, his latest single is the title tune from his upcoming solo album "Year Of The Tiger", set to be released March 9th, 2018 via Napalm Records. The effort was helmed by ALTER BRIDGE's longtime producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette.

"Year Of The Tiger" will feature a guest appearance by drummer Zia Uddin of THE MAYFIELD FOUR, a group Myles descries as his "first real national touring band" back in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

ALTER BRIDGE is expected to take most of 2018 off from the road while the bandmembers focus on other projects.

Writing for the follow-up to 2016's "The Last Hero" will begin next year, with tentative plans to release the effort in 2019.

Kennedy with his that unique and bluesy voice of his, he gives us a glimpse at his soul, known for his work with ALTER BRIDGE as well as SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS recently completed the highly anticipated record, which is available for pre-order in various bundle configurations at this location.

On "Year Of The Tiger", Kennedy embarks on his first venture as a solo artist by embracing musical elements and influences he hasn't explored until this point in his career. His appreciation for the blues and acoustic based music can be heard throughout the 12-song concept record inspired by the loss of his father when he was a child.

Anthemic spirit, fragile melodies and gritty acoustic guitars don`t turn "Year Of The Tiger" into a sad goodbye, but into a celebration of survival and life in all its facets.

Today's tune "Year Of The Tiger" taken from his upcoming solo debut. The video follows a reflective Kennedy as he travels through the memory of the loss of his father in 1974 — the year of the tiger.

Robert Plant - Carry Fire

Monday, New Week and I see that I have time for one more album review and "Record Of The Week" before we close this year.

"Carry Fire" is the 11th solo release for the LED ZEPPELIN lead singer is backed by his band the Sensational Space Shifters and features a guest appearance from Chrissie Hynde from PRETENDERS.

Folkloric have been something that Robert Plant always have embraced during his carer as a singer and songwriter. I am referring to the tales of the occult, Vikings and even Tolkien that we heard in the tunes of LED ZEPPELIN or the more folk traditions and myths that he has been working around during his solo carrier. With "Carry Fire" he dives deep into international folk forms and blends both musical, cultural and ancient lyrics with yesterday’s entries and creates something flavouring as "Carry Fire".

"Carry Fire" is a very detailed, ambitious and very direct album, it's so full of life that you get happy inside when you get this a spin.

The first cut "The May Queen" is a atmospherics piece with a spicy from Americana, lovely lyrics. The guitars ricochet throughout the spiritual tune "New World" until the more straightforward love song "Season's Song" and "Dance With You", two magical pieces that could be played at a any feast. "Carving Up the World" sounds like a mix between the 60's rock and African rhythms and goes in the same steps as the title tune, but "Carry Fire" has a more Indian flavour added to the sound. "A Way With Words" could been a collaboration with THÅSTRÖM, it's naked, slow, gray and slightly industrial with alot of motions and feelings. "Bones Of Saints", slight guitars with a ruffling drums shows another side of Plant, Americana with a Blues and Folk in a mix sounds pretty good here. "Keep It Hid", another slight Industrial tune, muffling bassline, guitars that stands out and a sentimental and groovy vocal makes this a tune to stand out, I really dig this. "Bluebirds Over the Mountain" Industrial Blues, modern but still retro, or ancient, a tune that I just love, specially Chrissie Hyndes part, suits this tune perfect. The album closes up with the mystique half pace "Heaven Sent", a emotional and historical piece.

Sum: Plant wears his years proudly and have released a magnificent album.

Robert Plant is out touring atm to supprt his new album, see the rest of the tour dates below.
Today's tune "Carry Fire" the title tune of the album, Enjoy!

Cock Sparrer - One By One

Sunday, time for a classic.

Today we pick a tune from the classic band COCK SPARRER that played at Kraken, here in Stockholm last night. A marvellous show as usal. Rarely do a band get the reaction that these guys do, they really know how to deliver a good evening and the set list was full of classics. A COCK SPARRER show is an event. It’s like cup final day. A family singalong. Theirs is a career in reverse, they’re bigger now than they ever were. Regularly headlining all the major punk festivals in Europe and occasionally hitting the US to headline events such as Punk Rock Bowling and Riot Fest.

COCK SPARRER are widely considered to be one of the most influential Street Punk bands in history.

2017 sees them celebrate their 45th Anniversary. Also the same year for the bands release “FOREVER”, their first album since 2007s Lars Frederiksen (RANCID) produced album "Here We Stand". 45 years on, still five blokes in a pub, five mates having a laugh, more than just a band.

The thing about Sparrer is that they're not just a band. They are childhood friends and have been making a noise since they got together way back in 1972. They were playing, drinking, going to football and generally making a nuisance of themselves when the late 1970s punk scene started in London. Finally it seemed that there were hundreds of like minded people with the same attitude.

However, the boys were from the wrong side of town and didn’t quite fit in with the ‘art school’ scene - they were more at home on the terraces wearing jeans and Dr Martens boots than being fashion victims in bondage trousers. They’ve always done things the way they wanted to. As Punk ended up with its own set of rules they were always on the outside as they just didn’t buy into it.

Despite being courted by SEX PISTOLS manager Malcolm McLaren (who they turned away for not buying a round of drinks), early tours with the SMALL FACES, THIN LIZZY, MOTÖRHEAD, SLADE amongst others and a record deal with Decca, the ‘music industry’ just wasn’t ready for COCK SPARRER.

Today's tune "One By One" from the band's new LP "Forever!", enjoy!
