The bad boys of Hollywood sleaze metal take on the gods of New York glam on this bombastic tribute album! Features supercharged versions of KISS classics Shout It Out Loud, Detroit Rock City, Strutter, I Love It Loud and more!
It's pretty much what you'd expect from the crew that had already tapped the cornpone soul of AC/DC. The scary thing about these covers of Kiss classics is how easily teenage testosterone rock can be transplanted to a self-described "hillbilly" milieu……
Never was a fan of TRIBUTES. But BAT HEAD SOUP is a definite collectors item. It is packed with the best top notch guitarists, Malmsteen, Kotzen, Lynch, Gillis, Zappa ,Beach and more. What makes this a great buy is if you like guitarists, they are all here. Great vocalists, percussion; and production was done with great care to preserve OZZY's song integrity. So you get a lot of classics, but updated to the year 2000. All remain true to the original but each group of artists adds their flavour. Hot tracks: MR.CROWLEY,I DON'T KNOW, PARANOID, SHOT IN THE DARK. And LISA LEOB's 'GOODBYE TO ROMANCE' is great. SHREDDERS and FANS will love it. Shows that a lot of work was done, congrats to Kulick, Bouillet on production.
Gothic and industrial superstars bring a whole new level of psychedelic spookiness to the songs of Pink Floyd, featuring performances by Nik Turner (of Hawkwind), Chrome, Psychic TV, Spahn Ranch and more!
What happens when you take a master of progressive rock and an accomplished Nashville producer engineer, and put them together with a host of top-flight Nashville session players to reinterpret one of the most revered 70s prog double-albums? In the case of Spock s Beard drummer Nick D'Virgilio and producer engineer Mark Hornsby, you get Rewiring Genesis A Tribute To The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, and it's fantastic. While the original featured layers of classic synthesizers (ARP, Mellotron, etc.), there's none of that fake string or choir stuff going on here. Besides rock guitar, bass, and Nick's great drumming (and tasteful lead vocal work), The Lamb is filled with real strings, huge vocal arrangements, horn sections, and even some accordion! Clearly, it's not attempting to simply re-record the classic, it's a fresh and beautiful sounding reinterpretation.
