AFM Records is very pleased to announce the signing of Alex Beyrodt´s Voodoo Circle.
Alex is well-known throughout the Rock & Metal scene as the mastermind of Silent Force, former guitarist of Sinner and tour guitarist of Primal Fear. His exceptional compositions and instrumental skills secured him highest respect from other musicians and a strong worldwide fan base. In Japan, where quality is still the most important aspect when it comes to music, he is hailed as a “guitar hero” and fills the venues. Alex chose to walk in huge footsteps with Voodoo Circle, because the immense impact and influence that bands like Rainbow and Deep Purple had, are undeniable. But if there is just one German musician who can fill this big boots and arouse with new energy, we definitely talk about Alex Beyrodt.
Not to forget, it needs a special kind of stage presence, charisma and the ability to “let the guitar do the talking”, so every listener can feel it deep down in his spine. Alex´ 60´s Strat guitar can give you exactly this – all in the tradition of the true heroes of Rock guitar.
Now Alex has founded a new band, that is deeply rooted in classic Hard Rock: Voodoo Circle. The band´s name will soon be known for first class musicianship and the ability to evoke pure magic. Here we have Alex Beyrodt (guitars), David Readman on vocals, Mel Gaynor (drums), Mat Sinner (bass) and Jimmy Kresic on keyboards.
“The legendary bands of the 70´s raised their best song ideas in extensive jam sessions and they possessed the gift to express something through the music. Nowadays this spirit seems to got lost somehow. Now I follow this “ideal” with Voodoo Circle. Back to vintage sounds, extensive jams of great musicians, sweaty live gigs and pure delight in playing.”
These are the bringers of the “voodoo vibes:
Alex Beyrodt (guitars) -Silent Force, ex-Sinner
David Readman (vocals) – Pink Cream 69
Mat Sinner (bass) – Sinner, Primal Fear
Mel Gaynor (drums) – Simple Minds, Gary Moore, Brian May
Jimmy Kresic (keyboards)
Guest appearances on the album:
Doogie White (Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen)
Rudi Sarzo (Ozzy, Dio, Whitesnake)
Norifumu Shima (Concerto Moon)
Richard Andersson (Majestic, Space Odyssey)
On December 5th the self-titled debut album will finally be available. Fans of the “old masters” like Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Yngwie Malmsteeen and Deep Purple, but also supporters of Silent Force, Pink Cream 69 and Sinner will be amazed by this Hard Rock jewel.

Clutch has released a new live CD that captures performances by the band in Sydney, Australia as well as Pittsburgh, PA, and Sayreville, NJ. This is a fifteen track CD that clocks in at an hour in length. The CD also has a DVD companion (sold separately) that has five additional songs.
With the performances on this CD coming from so many locations, you would think that “Full Fathom Five” would be a hodgepodge mix of bad live cuts from Clutch. It is just the opposite. Clutch’s live performances have always been their strong suit, and “Full Fathom Five” represents the band well.
Full Fathom Five starts off with the very heavy grunge like song, “The Dragonfly”. For those of you cringing to the word grunge, don’t worry, Clutch is hardly a grunge band. The band intertwines hard rock, with a sludge metal sound through in some Deep Purple like organ sounds, a little funk, some humorous lyrics here and there, and you have a brief idea of what Clutch sounds like.
Guitar aficionados will find a some heavy tunes that incorporate a large variety of guitar sounds to feast their ears on. One listen to the guitar and bass wizardry on “The Yeti” and you ought to be hooked!
One of my personal favorites, “The Devil & Me” has a cool Led Zeppelin like sound to it. Neil Fallon’s gruff vocals give this tune a completely different vibe.
“Full Fathom Five” is the kind of CD that you need to spin a couple of times to completely absorb. Maryland’s favorite sons have put together one hell of a live CD. This is a must own release for Clutch fans everywhere.
