    The Best & Worst of 80's Judas Priest - Ep459

    Play Episode Listen Later Nov 8, 2021 62:35

    We're back this week to share our thoughts on the classic 80's era of heavy metal legends Judas Priest! Mark Strigl from the Talking Metal podcast joins us as we pick our favorite and least favorite song off each album from British Steel through Ram It Down. Judas Priest had built up their reputation as one of metal's godfather bands with great 70's releases such as Stained Class, Sad Wings of Destiny, and Hellbent for Leather. They'd up the ante in the 1980's with an amazing run of albums and even more success. Singer Rob Halford, guitarists Glen Tipton and KK Downing, bassist Ian Hill, and drummer Dave Holland were an astounding group of musicians that would help shape hard rock and heavy metal for many future generations. We had a great time recording this episode and hope you will share YOUR Best & Worst of 80's Judas Priest in the comments below! Please listen, comment, and SHARE with a friend!

    We're back this week with a new concept we think you'll enjoy as we ponder The Producer Switch! A producer can, many times, make or break an album. Sometimes they can bring it to another level and, conversely, can hold back the potential of an album. As rock and metal fans, there are numerous examples of albums we all think could have been improved with a different producer at the helm. With that in mind, this week we're making The Producer Switch. In this episode, we'll switch producers for albums by KISS, Black Sabbath, Enuff Z'nuff, David Lee Roth, Alice Cooper, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, an Ozzy Osbourne. What albums did we pick? What producers are being replaced? You'll have to listen to find out! We want to hear from YOU! What producer switch would you make to your favorite albums and why? Say so in the comments!

    Albums Unleashed Eat 'Em & Smile with Billy Sheehan & Gregg Bissonette - Ep453

    We're back this week with another great conversation as Billy Sheehan & Gregg Bissonette reflect on Eat 'Em & Smile. This legendary album by David Lee Roth was released July 7, 1986 and peaked at #4 on the US Billboard charts. More importantly, it was an absolute statement being put forth by the former Van Halen front man that he could still swing for the fences. With a powerful backing band including the rhythm section of Sheehan and Bissonette combined with the guitar acrobatics of Steve Vai, the Eat 'Em & Smile album is loaded with hooks, precision, and the patented tongue-in-cheek lyrics of Roth. It's a true example of rock's dominance in the 80's. This interview was recorded live on-stage at the ROCKNPOD Expo in Nashville, TN on Saturday August 7, 2021. In this discussion, Billy & Gregg give the full backstory of how they hooked up with David Lee Roth, the audition process, album recording and much more. Their stories are incredibly entertaining and we think you'll get a kick out of these two legends reconnecting with each other.

    New Noize v15 - KISS Edition - Ep447

    Play Episode Listen Later May 11, 2021 62:51


    We're back to talk all the latest news on the Hottest Band in the Land with New Noize 15 - KISS Edition! After a pretty non-eventful 2020, KISS has ramped up things this year. This week we're gonna touch on some interesting recent news items pertaining to the band. It was recently announced that A&E will air 'Shout It Out Loud,' a four-hour 2-night documentary on the band. The press release seems to make it pretty clear that the story will be mostly told from the perspective of Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. Apparently, original members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss declined to be involved in the project. Will this have a negative affect on the documentary? Will it be portrayed as a one-sided history? We share our thoughts on it. Related to the A&E documentary, KISS will do a live performance at the Tribeca Film Festival following a screening of the event. With this being the band's first performance in 2021, what can we expect? Will rarities get played? Will tape roll? Listen and hear our thoughts. There might be more than one KISS movie coming out. A possible biopic is close to production for Netflix. With some big name production people mentioned as well as a tie-in with Universal Music Group, this has the potential for a large budget. However, how the band is portrayed is, once again, at the heart of concern for KISS fans. There's a lot of possibilities with this one and we go over several scenarios. Another new development in the KISS universe is the upcoming Vinnie Vincent May Metal Madness show at S.I.R. Teasing in his press release (ie. group post) that this "could be" the last of these $500 per ticket parties, he promised more spirits, food, fun, and, oh yeah, music at this upcoming event. Will it be the last of these parties? Will salad be served? Will any actual songs be played instead of mindless noodling? We share our theories. Wrapping things up this week is some discussion on a KISS fan-created project that's apparently gone off the rails. A book called Magic: KISS Khronicles started taking pre-orders in 2018. Judging by some sample pages and the author's notable history of knowing the most minute details of rare and live KISS photos, this book seemed to have everything going for it. Fast forward 3 years and the book has still not been delivered and, it appears, keeps getting pushed back another 3 months every 3 months. A lot of buyers are up in arms and wondering where their book or refund is. We talk about this project and it's apparent hurdles in the episode.

    Vinny Appice Remembers Holy Diver - Albums Unleashed - Ep446

    Legendary drummer Vinny Appice joins us this week to examine the making of Dio's Holy Diver album. Coming off success with Black Sabbath, Ronnie James Dio was in a tough spot. While the band was in a good place professionally, interpersonal relationships were severely hampered. While in Sabbath, Dio was offered a solo record deal and decided to snap it up and bring drummer Vinny Appice with him. What resulted is an absolute masterpiece of metal music. Holy Diver was released May 25, 1983 and immediately gained traction in a growing rock and metal scene. Powered by the singles 'Holy Diver' and 'Rainbow in the Dark,' the album is loaded with timeless songs. The rhythm section of Vinny Appice and Jimmy Bain combined with guitarist Vivian Campbell's soaring leads and Dio's majestic vocals produced an album that sounds as amazing today as it did upon its release. In this discussion Vinny shares his memories of this album and era. From their split with Sabbath to the formation of the band to the recording of the album, you'll hear about it all. There are some great behind the scenes stories in this chat about the making of the album at the legendary Sound City Studios. Additionally, you'll get stories from Vinny about the songwriting and recording process for Holy Diver. The chat wraps up with some other entertaining stories from this era including backward track recording, performing seances, and Ronnie's addiction to....video games. It's a great view into the making of a metal classic. We hope you enjoy Holy Diver - Albums Unleashed and SHARE with a friend!

    Conversation with Ron Keel - Ep439

    This week we're joined by Ron Keel for an insightful conversation on his career and future plans. As recently announced, Ron has been added to the roster for ROCKNPOD weekend taking place in Nashville this August. In this conversation, Ron talks about his early days in Nashville. Coming to Music City in 1979, Ron encountered a much different Nashville than the way it is today. In this discussion, he shares stories of what led him to Nashville, the rock scene at the time (or lack thereof), and how he planted roots and founded Steeler. The formation of Steeler would lead Ron and the band to Los Angeles in the early 80's. In this conversation, Ron shares the story of the band's early days, lineup changes, and how he feels about the legacy of the band. Things would go full-circle in 2019 when Ron reunited with several past members of the band at KEELFEST which would take place at the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, OH. It was a great way to cap off the history of Steeler. Steeler would give way to the formation of KEEL. The band would ascend the rock ranks through the 80's and work with producers like Mike Varney, Gene Simmons and Michael Wagener. In 1986, Keel won the Best Band of the Year award in the second annual Metal Edge magazine reader's poll, beating such noted bands as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. Their studio albums 'The Right to Rock,' 'The Final Frontier,' and 'Keel' are celebrated by many hard rock fans. 2010's 'Streets of Rock n' Roll' showed the band could still rock with the best of them. From that first Steeler album to recent releases like “South X South Dakota” and “Fight Like A Band,” Ron Keel’s 35-year career in entertainment has taken him from the concrete jungles of arena rock to the dirt roads of country music. Along the way, he has sold millions of albums and toured the world as both a heavy metal screamer (KEEL, Steeler, and a brief encounter with Black Sabbath) and a southern rock/outlaw country artist (with dozens of songs in major films and TV shows). For the past two decades, the Metal Cowboy has combined both genres, establishing a style and a persona which captures the heart and personality of this self-proclaimed rock n’ roll outlaw. In this conversation, Ron talks about the great connection he has with his fans. His following spans generations and he regularly interacts with them through his Patreon content which is uploaded constantly. He also shares some details of an upcoming album that he's working on as songs continue to flow. Additionally, Ron hosts his longtime radio show 'Streets of Rock n' Roll' and 'The Ron Keel Podcast,' both of which feature tons of great music and great interviews. We had a great time talking to Ron Keel this week and look forward to seeing him at ROCKNPOD in Nashville this August! Get all-things-Ron-Keel at www.ronkeel.com!

    We're closing out 2020 with special guest Julian Gill as we talk The Best and Worst of 70's Judas Priest! The Metal God, Rob Halford, and his band of brothers started kicking our asses all the way back in 1974 and continue to do so today. While the vast majority of their catalog is considered essential, the first 5 albums hold a special place in our hearts. In this week's episode we discuss our thoughts on Rocka Rolla (1974), Sad Wings of Destiny (1976), Sin after Sin (1977), Stained Class (1978), and Killing Machine / Hellbent for Leather (1978). These albums would influence countless musicians around the world and help foster the arrival of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal and, later, Thrash Metal. Their importance can't be understated. Picking a Best & Worst track on each of these albums was no small feat and there were some definite differences of opinion in this discussion.

    We're getting cerebral this week while talking about the hottest band in the land as we chat with the authors of KISS and Philosophy; a book that seeks to enlighten you in a rock and roll way. On the surface, you'd probably think that KISS songs are simply about groupies and having fun. To a point, you'd be right. However, as this book seeks to prove, there are a lot of poignant statements made throughout KISS' lyrical history. Editor Court Lewis and contributor Matt Alschbach (along with others) provide an interesting case study in the ways that KISS' music parallels philosophy by Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and more. Don't worry, this is no stuffy read; it's written for the layman and carries some great humor throughout. Plus, these guys are died-in-the-wool KISS fans and you'll get lots of cool nuggets throughout. In this discussion, Matt and Court share their personal KISStories as well as help explain the main points of the book. We had a great time talking to these guys and know you will enjoy listening.  You can pick up KISS and Philosophy: Wiser Than Hell at most major book retailers or direct from Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/KISS-Philosophy-Popular-Culture/dp/0812694910 We hope you enjoy our talk on KISS and Philosophy and SHARE with a friend!

    This week we bring you our in-depth chat with producer & engineer Mike Fraser. Mike's credit list is a Who's Who of rock and metal music. In this conversation, we talk to Mike about many of his notable projects. Getting his start at the legendary Little Mountain Studios in Vancouver in the early 80's, Mike Fraser was in good company right away; working with such production greats as Bob Rock and Bruce Fairbairn among many others. From his early days working on projects such as Rush's Exit...Stage Left, Brian Adams' Reckless, and Loverboy's Notorious, Mike got his feet wet quickly on quality albums. Things would go up a notch in 1987 with Aerosmith's Permanent Vacation. Fraser, Rock, and Fairbairn would collaborate on the making of this comeback album from the Bad Boys from Boston. In this episode, Mike shares some cool behind the scenes stories about making of the album and working with the members of the band during big change in their lives. Mike also reflects on the making of the Pump album that would come out in 1989 and how the experience differed from the previous one. Another pair of albums of great interest to Decibel Geek listener are from the short-lived supergroup Blue Murder. In this conversation, Mike shares his thoughts on working with the band and his opinion on its material. Additionally, Mike Fraser has worked on 5 AC/DC albums starting with 1989's The Razors Edge. In this chat, Mike discusses what it's like working for such a legendary band, their personalities, and more. There have been rumors that AC/DC have recently been in Vancouver working on an album. Does Mike shed any light on these rumors? We asked, you'll have to listen to hear his answer. Other artists discussed include Dan Reed Network, Bad English, The Cult, Thunder, Coverdale/Page, Dio, Metallica and more! We truly thank Mike Fraser for joining us this week and can't wait to have him back on in the future! We hope you enjoy our Conversation with Mike Fraser and SHARE with a friend! Contact Us!

    We try out something new as some of friends share their stories of a Brush with Greatness! In today's world of pre-planned, prepaid meet and greets, it's hard to find very many memorable stories of encounters with artists. This new series endeavors to talk to friends of ours that had genuine encounters (good and bad) with the artists. Joining us first today is voiceover artist and radio deejay Jeff Cecil. Jeff goes way back with Aaron Camaro to his radio days in the 90's. In this talk, Jeff and Aaron reflect on the old days and talk about run-ins with William Duvall of Alice in Chains, Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch, and David Lee Roth among others. Up next is drummer Richie Rivera. Richie is a veteran gun-f0r-hire who also plays for Janet Gardner (formerly of Vixen). Richie truly brought it this week with a truly entertaining story about a meeting with Rick James. It must be heard to be believed! Rounding out today's show is music industry member and publicist Dave Tedder. Today, Dave shares a story going back to the 80's that involves a chance meeting with Dokken in Germany and how it relates to their video for 'In My Dreams.' Pretty interesting stuff! *Note* - If you think YOU have a great story that could be shared of your Brush with Greatness, be sure to leave the name of the artist involved in the comments section!

    This week we're back with the third installment of Camaro's Cutout Bin! What is Camaro's Cutout Bin? Our host-with-the-most, Aaron Camaro, has a penchant for digging for musical gold in the form of CD's. He regularly combs through record stores, thrift stores, yard sales, etc for great rock and metal. He sometimes finds great stuff from classic bands but often finds relatively obscure bands of which many may have missed the boat. The band name, album name, or cover may speak to him as something that potentially "rocks." What are the results? Listen this week and find out if these ten selected albums made the cut! In this edition of the cutout bin, you'll hear tracks from Electric Frankenstein, Penicillin, Two-Bit Thief, Jesse's Powertrip, The Power Trio from Hell, The Camaros, Jet Circus, Ambush, and Radiovipers. Aaron and Chris go over the bands, their stories, and check out some of the music. Does it rock? Did it make Aaron's playlist? You'll have to listen to find out!

    We welcome back Bakko from the Cobras and Fire podcast to join us as we list our KISS Top 10 Bottom 10! In addition to his hosting duties, Bakko has been a longtime writer for the Decibel Geek website. Recently, he put out an article ranking every song in the KISS catalog; not an easy feat! As with most lists, it's reflective of the writer's personal take and we had our share of differences with his list. So, we figured the best way to rectify the situation was to bring him on and give our Top 10 and Bottom 10 KISS songs while going over his list as well. Would we agree? Would there be verbal bashing? Honestly, due to the amount of beer consumed in this episode, we don't really remember! Additionally, Bakko takes on Chris in a rematch of Beat the Geek hosted by Aaron Camaro! Did Chris get embarrassed? Did Bakko get crowned? As said previously, we don't remember so join us and find out! We hope you enjoy KISS Top 10 Bottom 10 and SHARE with a friend!

Hired on to work for the band during the Alive! tour, Barry would pull double duty doing guitar tech work for both Paul Stanley and Ace Frehley. His tenure with The Hottest Band in the Land lasted through Alive II around 1978. Barry had a front row seat to the fast ascent of KISS and was a part of numerous landmark moments in the band's zenith. We barely scratched the surface in this entertaining chat but touch on topics such as the sold out 3 night run at Cobo Hall in 1976, the Anaheim Stadium show, the making of Destroyer, and KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park! Other subjects covered include a hilarious story of a barefoot Ace Frehley in Sweden, Ace getting shocked in Lakeland, Florida, and the subsequent use of wireless gear.
