DORO Performs WARLOCK Classics At Whisky A Go Go (Video)

German metal queen Doro Pesch is celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of WARLOCK's "Triumph And Agony" album by performing the LP in its entirety at select shows around the globe. Fan-filmed video footage of her September 16 concert at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California can be seen below. "Triumph And Agony" was WARLOCK's fourth and final album. By the late 1980s, Pesch was the only original member remaining in the group, and under legal threats from former management, decided to carry on under the DORO banner rather than put her career on hold fighting over the WARLOCK name. (Pesch has since won back the right to use the WARLOCK moniker.) Asked why now was the right time to go out and play the "Triumph And Agony" songs again, Doro said: "Well, because we have our thirtieth anniversary of this big record. It was called 'Triumph And Agony', and it was the biggest record. I think it was one of the best records. And I thought, 'Man, we have to play one time the whole album in its entirety,' and we never did before. And then I called my old guitar player, Tommy Bolan, and he played on the whole record, he played all the solos. And I asked him if he was into that idea, doing a couple of shows with just the 'Triumph And Agony' album and then some encores. And he said, 'Oh, let's do it. I'm ready.'" In a 2000 interview with Metal Rules, Doro stated about WARLOCK: "I loved that so much and my heart and soul was so much into it. I was totally devastated when it broke up and it broke up not because of the band but because of all the bullshit around it. It was the record companies, the management, everything. The band had no control anymore — everybody else had, and the band did not. It was really tough and there were a lot of problems and I was totally heartbroken about it. But those times were awesome, man, it was awesome! I will always treasure them. I love to think about the great times." Doro told Get Ready To Rock! that "everything fell into place" for WARLOCK after "Triumph And Agony" was released. "The record company was totally behind it, MTV put our song 'All We Are' on heavy rotation, which was a big plus, I must say, the fans were there and metal was at its peak between 1987 and 1988. Sometimes you do wish for everything to fall into place, but it's very rare that this happens as things need to work like a watch." Doro's long-awaited follow-up to 2012's "Raise Your Fist" album will arrive in August 2018 and will be the German singer's first release since last year's "Love's Gone To Hell" single. Doro's last release was a package titled "Strong And Proud - 30 Years Of Rock And Metal", which came out in June 2016 via Nuclear Blast. It contained three decades of Doro — three unforgettable nights — forever captured on three DVDs and two Blu-rays, including a two-hour-plus music movie.

MARC BONILLA, STEVE LUKATHER, TODD SUCHERMAN Talk Final RONNIE MONTROSE Album ’10X10′ (Video)

When Ronnie Montrose passed away on March 3, 2012, he was in the midst of working on an album that would have thrilled fans of his original MONTROSE (1973-1974) and GAMMA (1979-1983) periods. The artistically restless Montrose followed his muse without question, but, in 2003, he called in bassist Ricky Phillips (STYX, BAD ENGLISH) and drummer Eric Singer (KISS, ALICE COOPER) to tackle a power-trio project that would rock harder than anything he had done in years. The idea was to record ten songs with ten different singers and call the album "10x10". He brought Phillips and Singer to Doug Messenger's studio in North Hollywood, and the three musicians set up to record live — no pre-production rehearsals and no overdubs — and knocked out ten basic tracks in two or three days. Sadly, Montrose was unable to see the album through during his lifetime and it quite possibly may never have been heard beyond a few Montrose-family friends. Montrose did manage to record some of his chosen vocalists — such as Sammy Hagar and Edgar Winter — but finances, schedules, and a frightening illness conspired to slow and eventually stop progress. We can all thank Phillips, Singer, Leighsa Montrose and Rhino Records now, because the album that appeared destined to be lost to time is now available for pre-order. "I was talking to Eric Singer about '10x10' after Ronnie died, and I was pretty sure that I wanted to see if I could finish it, but I hadn't been able to move forward on it," says Phillips. "But Eric said, 'It has to be you. You and I were there to record it. We were there when Ronnie was talking about it — what he wanted to do, who he wanted to sing on it, how he wanted it to sound. If someone else gets into this thing, it's going to suck, and you're going to hate it.' That did it. I called Leighsa Montrose." Phillips made it his mission to finish the songs by enlisting a small army of Ronnie's musician friends to record the vocals and the guitar solos for each song, completing the album over the course of recent years. The songs represent some of Montrose's best work. According to Ricky Phillips, "His songs still have the fire and angst of a young rebel, but with some added wisdom and foresight voiced in his own unique language of 'guitar-speak.' On '10x10', we hear Ronnie at the top of his game, from the opening crunch guitar of 'Heavy Traffic', all the way to the closing song, 'I'm Not Lying', which was Ronnie's tip of the hat to his friend Robin Trower." On September 29, 2017 Rhino Records will release "10x10" on 180-gram vinyl ($21.98), CD ($14.98) and digitally. The album features inspired pairings, like DEEP PURPLE singer Glenn Hughes with DEF LEPPARD guitarist Phil Collen ("Still Singin' With The Band") and singer Sammy Hagar with TOTO guitarist Steve Lukather ("Color Blind"). Legendary blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa also showcases his guitar talents on the track "The Kingdom's Come Undone" with Ricky Phillips on vocals. A few artists both sing and play, like Edgar Winter ("Love Is An Art") and Tommy Shaw ("Strong Enough"). Several artists who appear on "10x10" had recorded with Ronnie during his career, like Edgar Winter, who included the guitarist on his 1972 album, "They Only Come Out At Night". Sammy Hagar got his start singing with MONTROSE. Between 1973 and 1975, he recorded two influential albums — "Montrose" and "Paper Money" — with the band and toured the world. More than forty years later, Hagar was among the first who agreed to help finish Ronnie's final album. "It's valuable to have '10x10' be seen as Ronnie's last work, rather than going and digging up some stuff from his past. This was something he truly had a vision for," says Hagar. "10x10" track listing: 01. "Heavy Traffic" featuring Eric Martin & Dave Meniketti 02. "Love Is An Art" featuring Edgar Winter & Rick Derringer 03. "Color Blind" featuring Sammy Hagar & Steve Lukather 04. "Still Singin' With The Band" featuring Glenn Hughes, Phil Collen & Jimmy "Z" Zavala 05. "Strong Enough" featuring Tommy Shaw 06. "Any Minute" featuring Mark Farner & Ricky Phillips 07. "The Kingdom's Come Undone" featuring Ricky Phillips & Joe Bonamassa 08. "One Good Reason" featuring Bruce Turgon & Brad Whitford 09. "Head On Straight" featuring Davey Pattison & Marc Bonilla 10. "I'm Not Lying" featuring Gregg Rolie, Tom Gimbel & Lawrence Gowan In the clips below, Lukather, guitarist Marc Bonilla and STYX drummer Todd Sucherman discuss their involvement with "10x10". A note from Leighsa Montrose about the cover art: "Ronnie loved the use of a double entendre to convey meaning. My inspiration for the cover artwork is a personal nod to him, how he thought, and what would have been aesthetically pleasing to him. This is beautifully illustrated by Peter Grant. What you see is a sound wave from 'Head On Straight', which he wrote for '10x10'. This was captured by Steve Ledesma with special thanks to Alfred Ruiz. When looking at this soundwave, I wanted the eye and mind to see it as if it was moving and fluid — as if it was him on the cover. "Ronnie is music. He had the mindset of an engineer. Math and music was the way he thought. To be able to combine these attributes of Ronnie with depth of meaning, I believe he would have appreciated the thought that went into everyone's combined efforts to understand and create the cover."

SEX PISTOLS: ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’ 40th-Anniversary Deluxe Edition Due In October

It is now almost forty years to the day since the SEX PISTOLS "Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols" was released and to mark this significant anniversary USM/UMC will revisit the out-of-print super deluxe edition of the album, which was originally issued in 2012. Released in limited numbers at the time, this set is widely considered to be the definitive collection. This new, budget priced smaller-sized edition still boasts 3CDs which include the original studio album with 1977 B-sides, a disc of outtakes and one disc of 1977 live material. Additionally, there is a DVD featuring 1977 footage of the band playing live from the infamous boat party held on the River Thames, London, the Winter Gardens, Penzance in Cornwall and the Happy House, Stockholm, Sweden. Bringing it all together is a forty-eight-page hardback book with narrative from music journalist Pat Gilbert plus rare photos from Bob Gruen, Barry Plummer, John Tiberi and Dave Wainwright. Condensing the very essence of 1977, "Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols" is the only studio album by the group, released amidst a furore of controversy and outrage, following their being dropped by not one but two record labels, banned from gigging in most parts of the U.K. and swearing live on TV. From its iconic day-glo cover designed by Jamie Reid in collaboration with the SEX PISTOLS to its risqué title which led to an infamous court case which the band won, the album encapsulates a moment in time when the SEX PISTOLS set the world of music on fire. Due on October 27, "Never Mind The Bollocks – 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" will feature the following track listing: Disc 1 - Never Mind The Bollocks 01. Holidays In The Sun 02. Bodies 03.

JEFF SCOTT SOTO: Lyric Video For ‘Inside/Outside’ Song

The official lyric video for the song "Inside/Outside" from Jeff Scott Soto can be seen below. The track is taken from his new album, "Retribution", which will be released on November 10 via Frontiers Music Srl. Co-written and produced together with Jeff Scott Soto alumni Howie Simon, "Retribution" is Jeff's sixth proper solo studio album in a style that fans have come to know and love from the legendary singer over the years. Jeff Scott Soto's career spans over thirty years. He was first introduced to the public as the vocalist for guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen's iconic first two solo albums before going on to front esteemed hard rock band TALISMAN. He is also one of the vocalists for the wildly popular TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, the lead vocalist for super group W.E.T. (featuring JSS alongside members of ECLIPSE and WORK OF ART), and creative visionary for the more metal leaning Soto, among many other musical activities he has been involved in. He also held a stint fronting Rock And Roll Hall Of Famers JOURNEY and was one of the vocalists for the officially sanctioned QUEEN tribute QUEEN EXTRAVAGANZA. His incredible voice has led to many an artist inviting him to do guest lead vocals or background vocals on their albums, including, but not limited to, STRYPER, Joel Hoekstra, SAIGON KICK, Fergie Frederiksen, Lita Ford, STEELHEART, and more. In 1994, he released his first solo outing, "Love Parade", followed by the acclaimed "Prism" (2002), "Lost In The Translation" (2005), "Beautiful Mess" (2009) and "Damage Control" (2012).

TRIVIUM: Making Of ‘The Sin And The Sentence’ Album Part 2 (Video)

The second in a series of webisodes featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the making of "The Sin And The Sentence", the new album from Florida-based metallers TRIVIUM, can be seen below. Due on October 20 via Roadrunner, the disc is available for pre-order at all DSPs, with all pre-orders receiving instant grat downloads of the album's title track and the newly released single, "The Heart From Your Hate", which is streaming now accompanied by an official music video on TRIVIUM's YouTube Channel. Recorded with producer Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, GOJIRA) at Santa Ana, California's Hybrid Studios, "The Sin And The Sentence" finds TRIVIUMMatt Heafy (lead vocals, lead guitar), Corey Beaulieu (guitar, vocals), Paolo Gregoletto (bass) and Alex Bent (drums) — returning with their first new music since their celebrated 2015 LP "Silence In The Snow". The new LP also features the band's first recordings with new drummer Bent who joined the band last year. Paolo told Sweden's Bandit Rock about the production process for "The Sin And The Sentence": "It has been about a year and a half, almost two years since we started really working on it, so we were kind of working on it on the down load while we were touring. We really came together and made it November of last year when we got Alex into the band. We kind of threw him into the deep end, because we were, like, 'You've gotta learn an entire headlining set — and we're gonna start writing new music.' So we kind of rolled the dice with that one, but Alex ended up really stepping up — he really crushed it. "I guess we just really wanted to make the 'most TRIVIUM' TRIVIUM album we could make — the culmination of everything we've been writing," he continued. "And it really just kind of came down to us being in our rehearsal room and just working together and not letting anyone outside of Matt, Corey and myself into the process. And then, of course, Alex. But no one else — we didn't send any demos to anyone. We were kind of telling the label, 'Oh, yeah, we're ready to record.' And I remember our A&R dude was, likem 'I've gotta hear something.' So we flew him down [to Florida]. But we didn't send demos out to anyone, and I think by retaining all the music for ourselves, it was the perfect culmination of what we've been doing throughout the years." TRIVIUM will make its return to North America this fall on a co-headline tour with ARCH ENEMY featuring support from WHILE SHE SLEEPS and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY. The tour will kick off on October 27 in Orlando, Florida and make its way across the U.S. and Canada before finishing on December 6 in Houston, Texas. Tickets for all dates are on sale now. "The Sin And The Sentence" track listing: 01. The Sin And The Sentence 02. Beyond Oblivion 03. Other Worlds 04. The Heart From Your Hate 05. Betrayer 06. The Wretchedness Inside 07. Endless Night 08. Sever The Hand 09. Beauty In The Sorrow 10. The Revanchist 11. Thrown Into The Fire

Listen To New MARILYN MANSON Song ‘Kill4me’

Marilyn Manson's new song "Kill4me" can be streamed below. The track is taken from his new album, "Heaven Upside Down", which will be released on October 6. On the disc, he reunites with producer and film composer Tyler Bates following an epic collaboration on Manson's critically acclaimed 2015 release, "The Pale Emperor". Manson told Loudwire about"Kill4me": "'Would you kill for me? / I love you enough so I'll ask you again / Would you kill for me? / You won't be kissing me unless you kill for me.' It’s a great conversation that came to be. "I don't like songs that ask questions," he continued. "Some might say 'Would you kill for me?' is a question. It's more of a veiled threat than a question. It's an ultimatum, I think. I don't like songs to generally ask questions because it seems not as certain as I feel that I am. I like to tell people this is how I feel, and I might want them to ask questions from it, but I'm not gonna ask the question. It's like a letter, like someone's gonna respond to it." Manson performed four new songs during his recently completed European tour. Manson revealed in a September 2016 interview that his new album would be "the last thing people would expect after hearing 'The Pale Emperor'." He explained: "Coming from the people who I've played it to, it's a combination of 'Antichrist Superstar' and 'Mechanical Animals' in feeling." Manson added: "It wasn't my intent to go backwards. Everything goes in a full circle and it just becomes, without cannibalizing work from the past, the same thing, which is ultimately you. I'm a little over-anxious to release it, so it was done very quickly, but it's by far the most thematic and over-complicated thing that I've done. In a way, it's deceptively delightful to strangers. It's like the old saying that the devil's greatest secret is that people don't believe he exists." MARILYN MANSON's North American tour will kick off on September 27 in Silver Spring, Maryland. "Heaven Upside Down" track listing: 01. Revelation #12 02. Tattooed In Reverse 03. We Know Where You Fucking Live 04. Say10 05. Kill4me 06. Saturnalia 07. Je$u$ Cri$i$ 08. Blood Honey 09. Heaven Upside Down 10. Threats Of Romance

NIKKI SIXX And LEICA CAMERA Collaborate To Celebrate Storytelling Through Photography

Leica Camera and Nikki Sixx, bassist and founding member of MÖTLEY CRÜE and three-time New York Times best-selling author, have combined their enthusiasm for photography and rich visual storytelling with two new releases in October. Leica Camera will debut a special Leica Q Nikki Sixx Edition camera, as well as host the musician's first-ever photo exhibit, "Conversations With Angels", at the Leica Gallery Los Angeles. Sixx's affinity for street photography is the result of his experience on the streets as a runaway and past drug abuse. Now sober seventeen years, Sixx uses his Leica cameras as tools to link his challenging past experiences with stories of hope through capturing images that speak to his strong and meaningful connections to his subjects. "I've been a storyteller all my life — as a lyricist, an author and especially as a photographer. When I'm shooting my subjects, I'm looking to capture more than just an image. I want to tell their stories," says Sixx. Sixx's style and method of photography are unique. He first and foremost focuses on having a conversation with his subjects and getting to know them well before he ever brings his camera out. Only once he's heard their story does he begin to capture any photographs, aiming to bring these intimate conversations to life in his photos and help to explain the lives of the people he encounters. To help tell these stories, Sixx uses various Leica cameras, including the Leica SL, Leica M and his Leica Q to photograph his subjects. Sixx attributes his particular love of the Q to its versatility. "It's not just a camera for serious work, but a camera to capture life by," shares Sixx. "I never leave home without my camera. I want it nearby in case I see something that compels me to pull my car over, or walk down an alleyway for inspiration. I love the Q because it's incredibly durable and has stuck with me through everything — a lot of wear and tear, but it always delivers sharp and poignant images." To celebrate his dedication to photography and the role Leica plays in this creative outlet for Sixx, Leica Camera will release the Leica Q Nikki Sixx Edition, a limited-edition release of the rock star's own full-frame compact camera. The Leica Q Nikki Sixx Edition is a rock-star take on Sixx's beloved Leica Q camera featuring a black snakeskin finish on leatherette with a laser-engraved Nikki Sixx signature. The Leica Q will also be accompanied by a black Leica leather wrist strap, an autographed copy of the tenth anniversary edition of Sixx's memoir, "The Heroin Diaries", and a black DSPTCH braided shoulder strap durable enough to withstand the tough photographic environments Sixx's frequently finds inspiration in and enjoys shooting. The Leica Q Nikki Sixx Edition will be limited to an exclusive twenty-eight units, a number which has special significance for Sixx as he overdosed on heroin at that age and was clinically dead for several minutes which ultimately provided the turning point that lead him to commence his path of recovery. This limited-edition camera will be unveiled on October 4 exclusively at the Leica Store LA. In a show titled "Conversations With Angels", Sixx's most precious moments and interactions from the past decade will be displayed in an intimate series of photos depicting homelessness and drug addiction, topics that Sixx was all too familiar with before photography helped change his life. The exhibit, "Conversations With Angels", will be on display at the Leica Gallery Los Angeles October 4 through November 5, aligning with the tenth anniversary of Sixx's memoir, "The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life Of A Shattered Rock Star". In "Conversations With Angeles", Sixx shows the world his photographic methodology first hand. His subjects, who he considered his angels, remind him through conversation and interaction that his life, and the decisions he makes, are important. In turn, he seeks to find the hope in his subjects to escape their own troubles and achieve a better, cleaner life. "When I get home from shooting," Sixx says, "I look at those photos for hours. I zoom in on their eyes, their lips, and their fingers and I look for some hope. If I can find that hope then I've done them justice in my photography." Sixx's collaboration with Leica Camera coincides with the tenth anniversary of his New York Times bestselling memoir "The Heroin Diaries" and "The Heroin Diaries" anniversary edition soundtrack album by his other band, SIXX:A.M. On the original release of "The Heroin Diaries" in 2007, Sixx partnered with Covenant House California, Los Angeles and raised over $250,000.00 to instate a music room on the organization's campus. On occasion of "The Heroin Diaries" anniversary and his first photo exhibition, Sixx once again will support Covenant House to raise funds for a photography room and program benefitting the residents. The Leica Q Nikki Sixx Edition is priced at $5250 and will be available for pre-order October 4, 2017 at Leica Stores and boutiques in the United States. For more information, visit www.leicacamerausa.com. "Conversations With Angels" will be showing from October 4 through November 5, 2017 at Leica Gallery Los Angeles. For more information, visit www.leicagallerylosangeles.com. Watch Nikki Sixx's behind-the-scenes story of "Conversations With Angels" below. Proceeds from all sales of Nikki Sixx's gallery exhibits depicting homelessness will benefit Covenant House California, Los Angeles to raise funds for a photography room and program for Covenant House residents.
