Des Moines, Iowa’s On A Pale Horse, featuring guitarist Josh Brainard (ex-Slipknot) and vocalist Aaron Peltz (ex-Downthesun), are currently streaming the new song A Generation of Vipers on the group’s MySpace site at http://www.myspace.com/onapalehorse
“We are previewing a song off the new record every week up until the release on our MySpace,” says vocalist Aaron Peltz. “The first track up for preview that hasn’t been heard yet is the title track of our album.”
On A Pale Horse has set March 4th, 2008 as the release date for their upcoming new album A Generation of Vipers through Corporate Punishment Records. The album was produced by Warren Riker (CROWBAR, DOWN, CATHEDRAL) and executive-produced by SLIPKNOT’s Paul Gray.
The group’s recently released video for “Sound The Alarm” has quickly become one of the hottest videos online at Revver.com, where the video is currently ranked in the Top 40. The video for “Sound The Alarm” can be seen at the following loc ation:
“We did the Sound the Alarm video in like 3 hours with independent filmmaker Thor Moreno and the feedback and curiosity about us so far has been great since we posted it up on Revver.com. It’s nothing flashy which fits us perfectly,” says Peltz. “The footage was shot at our nasty ass practice space and our home base in Des Moines at the House of Bricks. We hadn’t ever made an actual video before so we definitely wanted to get the people that have supported us in on the shoot.”

There is a new wave of classic rock bands that are making some big noise in the music scene. Bands like The Answer, and Wolfmother have experienced new levels of success. More and more new bands are strutting their stuff with a sound that has more in common with 70’s hard rock, than the latest sounds of today.
Whitefire from the U.K. is the latest band with that great classic rock sound. Judging from the sound of three song E.P., Whitefire is a band that will be going places in the near future.
On the three songs on this EP, I can hear the influence of bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Thin Lizzy. It is that riff heavy sound that takes me back to hard rock’s roots. It excites me to hear a new era of bands influenced by this awesome era of rock.
Whitefire shows that they can deliver the goods with this EP. Jon Sibley is a solid vocalist, and the dual guitar sound of Chris Mills and Stephen Mee is one that I can really get into. My only problem after listening to the three songs here, is I am left wanting more. I can’t wait to hear a full length album by these U.K. Rockers.
- Wishing Well
- Yesterday’s Sorrow
Jon Sibley – Vocals
Chris Mills – Guitar
Stephen Mee – Guitar
Robert Cocks – Bass
John Maughan – Drums
The new show, featuring an all-star lineup of candidates, will premiere tonight, Thursday, Jan 3, 9/8c, and air every Thursday.
What’s really unique about this “Apprentice” season is that rather than vying for a job with Donald Trump, the contestants will be working towards a greater goal — raising over a million dollars for their various charities throughout the season.
The final winner will have the opportunity to donate a $250,000 bonus check to their designated charity.
Check out Simmons talking about what it takes to succeed:

Tom Scholz (Boston), Aaron Lewis (Staind), Tesla, Twisted Sister, Stryper, Dee Snider and others, along with host are scheduled to perform Monday, February 25th at Dunkin Donut Center in Providence, Rhode Island at the Fifth Anniversary Relief Fund Charity Concert.
The charity event marks the fifth anniversary of the Station Nightclub tragedy in Rhode Island, the fourth largest nightclub fire in US history. 100 lives were lost, 200 others were seriously injured and 65 children lost one or both parents. Five years later, funds available for the survivors are woefully inadequate. Only 15 survivors of the fire qualified for Social Security benefits, and many are still unable to meet their monthly needs.
The Station Family Fund, founded by survivors, family members and community members affected by the fire and the Wake Up To Love Foundation founded by Tesla drummer Troy Luccketta are event organizers. While $100,000 was raised in 2005 from a benefit concert featuring Tesla, Shinedown, Pat Travers and Carmine Appice, those funds are in desperate need of replenishing.
All proceeds from ticket sales and charity auctions benefit the Station Family Fund, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) charitable organization founded by survivors of the Station Nightclub fire. The Station Family Fund is committed to providing survivor relief, including costs of ongoing treatment and rehabilitation.
Additional artists scheduled to perform on February 25th include Carmine Appice’s Slam, Eric Martin, Gary Hoey, Chicago drummer Danny Seraphine. Other artists will be announced over the next few weeks.
Organizers would like to acknowledge the incredible generosity of the Dunkin’ Donuts Center http://www.dunkindonutscenter.com who has graciously donated the venue free of charge for the charity event as well as East Coast Lighting, WHJY and the many acts who are donating their time in putting together this event.
Tickets go on sale Friday, January 4th at Ticketmaster.com. Prices range from $41 to $61.

Bullet for My Valentine is getting ready to release their sophomore album, Scream Aim Fire, on January 29th. The band traveled to Texas to team up with renowned producer Colin Richardson (Machine Head, Funeral for A Friend) to create an album packed with aggressive tempos, insane guitar riffs and incredible lyrics. Bullet for My Valentine is comprised of Matthew “Matt” Tuck (guitars, vocals), Michael “Padge” Paget (guitar, supporting vocals), Jason “Jay” James (bass, supporting vocals) and Michael “Moose” Thomas (drums). Be sure to catch Bullet for My Valentine on their headlining tour through the UK and US starting in late January.
To celebrate the release of Scream Aim Fire, Bullet for My Valentine and Hard rock Hideout are giving one lucky winner a chance to win an ESP electric guitar!
This band has a modern, hard rock sound that is primed for radio play. Blind Army has a sound that reminds me of a cross of several different post grunge rock bands including Fuel, Candlebox, and Seven Mary Three.
My problem with this disc is that the tunes don’t really stand out. There are a couple of songs that I like quite a bit (That’s It, and Dictate). Both songs I can hear getting massive amounts of radio play. The problem is, if I were to hear this on the radio, I would likely get the tunes confused with another group from the 90’s era of rock. I am sure that the same can be said for many bands, from just about every decade of rock, so this should not surprise me. I just didn’t find any tracks that made Blind Army stand out very much. It isn’t a bad disc by any means, it just isn’t very original. The music is solid, and Pete Fooks vocals are pretty good.
If you are a fan of any of the band’s I mentioned above, you are going to enjoy this disc quite a bit. You can check out some of the tracks at CD Baby.com!
