There were so many different variations of rock in the late 80’s and early 90’s that it was inevitable you would dip your foot in everything, so stick around for EMF, Metallica and Ministry, just to name a few!
But first… Hear N’ Tell!
Gasoline Guns unleash new track “Under Wicked Sky”
Ukraine based heavy metal rockers Gasoline Guns have unleashed a new single “Under Wicked Sky” from their upcoming album Motor Cult, which will be released in the spring of 2021 in CD format by Mythrone Promotion and Defense Records.
Let’s hear it and see it I’ll tell you some more after…
Here’s Gasoline Guns and their new single “Under Wicked Sky” right here on Hair Metal Mixtape!
That was Gasoline Guns and their new single “Under Wicked Sky” from their upcoming album Motor Cult, which will be released in the spring of 2021 in CD format by Mythrone Promotion and Defense Records.
Gasoline Guns‘ original press release for their single “Under Wicked Sky” states: “This song is dedicated to post-apocalyptic fiction. It was inspired by Mad Max movie and its sequels. As for music it is heavy metal with a typical pounding Mötorhead rhythm and a harsh vocal. Gasoline Guns’ genre could be described as “metal ‘n’ roll”. We recommend this single to the fans of Mötorhead, Malignant Tumour, Helltrain, Newsted, Gehennah and even Impaled Nazarene. If you like good old heavy metal with fast beats – give a listen to “Under Wicked Sky” single.”
There you have it folks! What did you think?
…And that was your Hear ’N Tell!
OK, Mixtapers, it’s time to get a little out of our Hair Metal comfort zone and dip our toes in what else was going on in the late 80’s early 90’s and think a little outside the Hair Metal box. And no it wasn’t jus pre-grunge alternative rock, there was a lot of different rock flying around that was definitely peaked my interest. And it wasn’t just the obvious ones like Faith No More or Red Hot Chili Peppers that easily bridged the gap of Metal, Hair Metal and Funk Metal or dare I say top 40 Rock one hit wonder bands like Ugly Kid Joe and EMF , it was stuff like NIN, Janes Addiction and Ministry that perked my ears and kind of kept the metal alive in me if you can believe that. That had the Metal Spirit if you will, which is just rooted in a depths of classic Punk and D.I.Y. culture. You know, Pirates!
Kicking off today’s Hair Metal Mixtape of “The Others” is the one and only Mike Patton and his stint with Faith No More. These guys were my bridge to Mr. Bungle and everything Mike Patton.
Here’s Faith No More and “Epic” off of The Real Thing, right here on Hair Metal Mixtape!
That was Ministry with “Jesus Built My Hot Rod” from the album Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed & the Way to Suck Eggs
Preceded by lead single “Jesus Built My Hotrod“, Psalm 69 was a critical and commercial success upon its release, peaking at number 27 on the US Billboard 200 and number 33 on the UK Albums Chart. It was supported by two more singles: “N.W.O.” and “Just One Fix“, with accompanying music videos directed by Peter Christopherson. Psalm 69 is considered to be Ministry’s most successful album, having been certified gold in Canada and Australia, and platinum in the US. Following its release, Ministry joined the second annual Lollapalooza tour before commencing a tour through Europe and the US; “N.W.O.”, “Just One Fix”, and the title track have become permanent features of the band’s live setlist. “N.W.O.” was nominated for the Best Metal Performance at the 35th Annual Grammy Awards.
