Today we celebrate Hair Metal like we do everyday here but give an emphasis on the inspiration for today’s Mixtape, so stick around for L.A. Guns, Lilian Axe and Razor Bats, just to name a few!
But first… Hear N’ Tell!
Sunbomb unleash new track “No Tomorrows”
SUNBOMB is a highly anticipated new musical alliance between two steadfast warriors of the U.S. hard rock/metal scene, Tracii Guns and Michael Sweet. They have put together an absolute blinder of a heavy metal album, melding influences of classic metal bands such as Black Sabbath and Judas Priest with Tracii’s love of metal subgenres, specifically doom metal.
Let’s hear it and see it I’ll tell you some more after…
Here’s Sunbomb and their new single “No Tomorrows” right here on Hair Metal Mixtape!
That was Sunbomb and their new single “No Tomorrows” from their upcoming album Evil and Divine, which will be released May 14th of 2021 by Frontiers Records
Tracii leaked the news of the new project in a March 2019 tweet, where he described the project’s debut LP as “the Metal record I would have made when I was 17 years old.” In May 2020, he mentioned on “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk” that “The SUNBOMB record is really kind of like [L.A. GUNS’ 2019 album] ‘The Devil You Know’ times three. It’s more on the heavy side of ‘The Devil You Know’ album. And Michael Sweet, he’s a really fantastic metal singer.”
The music style on the record is much heavier than what one would expect from these two musicians and is firmly planted in the ‘metal’ category. While Tracii wrote the music for the album, the fact that Michael Sweet has been writing in an increasingly heavier style on latter era Stryper albums made him a very logical choice to sing for the band. And since doom metal, often known for having powerful singers like Messiah Marcolin from Candlemass and Eric Wagner from Trouble, was a massive influence on Tracii’s songwriting here, Sweet’s ability and range were a perfect match.
Drums on the album were handled by Tracii’s old L.A. Guns bandmate Adam Hamilton and bass was handled by Mitch Davis, with the exception of the track ‘They Fought’, which features current L.A. Guns bassist Johnny Martin.
This release is a project created, overseen and directed by Serafino Perugino President and A&R director of Frontiers Records.
There you have it folks! What did you think? I am personally very excited by that song and this project. Especially since I’ve been listening to some Doom Metal on the side. I am digging it. This sub-genre is so expansive now and going all the way back to Black Sabbath! Another rabbit hole!
There you have it folks! What did you think?
…And that was your Hear ’N Tell!
OK, Mixtapers, Like I said in the opening, today we celebrate Hair Metal like we do everyday here but give an emphasis on the inspiration for today’s Mixtape. And what is the inspiration for today’s Mixtape? I would say a combination of Social Media and International Human Hair Metal interaction. Today’s Hair Metal Mixtape is called “hairmetalrulz” in all lower case letters because that’s the instagram account that inspired today’s Mixtape. That’s right! David from Dublin has one of my favorite Instagram accounts showing off his private collection of Hard Rock, Melodic, AOR & Metal cd’s, vinyl, cassettes, DVDs and every medium under the Sun! Here’s to you David @hairmetalrulz ! Cheers!
And here’s Saigon Kick with “Suzy” from their self-titled debut, right here on Hair Metal Mixtape! Hair Metal Rulz!
That was Lynch Mob with “Wicked Sensation”
Wicked Sensation is the debut album by American Rock band Lynch Mob. This was George Lynch‘s first release since leaving Dokken. Singer-songwriter Oni Logan provided vocals, contributed to the lyrics and composition and also played harmonica. Also joining George was former Dokken drummer Mick Brown. The album had two successful singles, with “River Of Love” climbing to the No. 19 spot on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart as well as “Wicked Sensation” reaching No. 31 on that chart
How about them apples!
And that is today’s Hair Metal Mixtape #341 – hairmetalrulz
I wanted to again thank David @hairmetalrulz for the inspiration I got from his Instagram account showing of his prized Hair Metal possessions of which I own as well. And that’s how you heard what you heard today! Thanks for tuning in and thanks for sticking around. I appreciate and respect your time.
That’s it folks! Thanks for listening!
I hope you are maintaining your physical distance from your friends and loved ones for now and yet also engaging in social connectivity.
Keep your vinyl clean!
Be Kind, Rewind
Peace, Love, Hair Metal!
