“I can tell you that without a doubt, the wait will be worthwhile. ‘Angel Down’ is the metal album of the year, if not the 21st Century so far” – Undercover.au
“Sporting a great Axl Rose cameo and enough guitar chops to choke a horse, Bach delivers one of the best retro-metal albums in recent time…. On Angel Down, Sebastian Bach proves that he is the definition of an ‘American Metalhead’.” – Cash Box Magazine

What is Glam Month all about?
Glam rock has been around since the 1970’s with bands like Sweet, Mott the Hoople, T.Rex and the New York Dolls. In the 80’s it was Motley Crue, Poison, Ratt and Twisted Sister carrying the torch. The Glam scene nearly died out in the 90’s, but in 2007 it is beginning to thrive once more. It continues on with a whole bunch of new and familiar faces. There is a slew of new bands trying to keep the scene and the music alive.
Let’s face it, Glam Rock, or Glam Metal if you prefer, hasn’t been a relevant to the music scene for quite a while. There are however a bunch of new bands breaking into the scene that could possibly return the Glam rock scene to its former glory.
Is Glam Rock Dead? If so, the bands featured in Glam Month at HardRockHideout.com didn’t get the memo. They are still putting out quality new releases, and are gaining new fans everyday.
Weekdays throughout November will feature the latest Glam rock CD and DVD reviews! Some acts you may have heard of, some you might find out about for the very first time. Get your ears, and your wallets ready! It is going to be a fun ride!
Stop back every weekday in November for the latest in Glam!
Metal Blade Records has just inked a deal with Bay Area thrashers Hatchet! Hatchet is an onslaught of 5 thrash metal fanatics from the San Francisco Bay Area; a starting point for infamous thrash bands like METALLICA, EXODUS, TESTAMENT, and VIO-LENCE just to name a few. Formed by Julz on guitar and Slave behind the drum kit in January 2005, Hatchet was started as the two were fed up with the stale metal scene in their home town. Their desire to create music filled with substance and driving aggression would be enough to help revive a genre that had slowly began to fade away over the years in their hometown.Hatchet will be playing various one off dates until they release their new album in spring/summer 2008 and will then be on a heavy touring schedule. Head over to the band’s MySpace page to check out some tracks to get a taste of what’s to come!
“It is an honor to be working with Metal Blade, and to be a part of the legacy of amazing artists they have worked with over the years! Together we will help bring Thrash Metal back to the top where it belongs!” – Hatchet
“In a time where thrash is making an awesome comeback, we are stoked to be working with bands that are a part of the rebirth. These guys are young, ruthless and talented and we can’t wait till they rock you like its 1984!” – Metal Blade.
Check out the video below of Hatchet performing Live!
I have been looking forward to the new Lizzy Borden disc for a while. As soon as I seen some of the guest musicians giving Lizzy a hand on this disc (George Lynch, Dave Meniketti, Ira Black), I knew without a doubt I would pick this up. There hasn’t been a ton of hype about this release, so my only hope going in, is that Appointment With Death with this record is that it would surprass the last Lizzy Borden effort, Deal With The Devil.
In 2007, Lizzy Borden returns with a new band, and a brand new look that will scare your grandparents.
Appointment With Death is a concept album, but that shouldn’t scare you away. This release is pure heavy metal.
Lizzy’s voice hasn’t changed one bit. He can still hit those high pitched notes with ease. He is in fine vocal form on this record. Ira Black’s guitar work is a definite upgrade for this Lizzy Borden fan’s ears. His chugging guitar riffs combined with Marten Anderssen’s heavy bass work, and Joey Scott’s excellent skin bashing seem to compliment each other quite well.
There are two or three cuts that I couldn’t get into very much but I do have some early favorites. The title track, Appointment With Death, is a hard driving tune that I want to keep playing over and over. Live Forever is a metal beast that is forcing its way into my head whether I like it or not. I am a sucker for guitar solos, and Bloody Tears is a metal anthem that has a lot of excellent guitar work. Tomorrow Never Comes has an Iron Maiden type of guitar sound to it, and has catchy lyrics that get into your head quickly. Under Your Skin is quite possibly the most modern sounding metal track on this record. This is a good song that could have some hit potential. Somethin’s Crawlin is the perfect Halloween Anthem. This song kind of reminds me of something that Alice Cooper would do, and that is quite cool. (We Are) The Only Ones has great sing along quality and neck-snapping, head-banging quality.
Is Appointment With Death Lizzy Borden’s best work? If it isn’t, it is very close! This is the kind of disc that will take multiple listens to fully absorb and appreciate. The songs are well written, and the music is a step above any heavy metal discs that have been released recently. It is a very solid metal offering, and is one that should appeal to Lizzy fans every where. Go Get It!
