Sunday Metal – Overkill

Overkill has a new album, “The Grinding Wheel” that just came out. It’s been my gym soundtrack ever since. Solid album.

One of my favorite tracks: “Come Heavy”.

 

Sunday Metal – Vektor

Vektor – “Tetrastructural Minds”

New band to me – quite technical. Suggested to me by my friend Sam.

And yes, that’s a guy hitting those vocals. Amazing.

Sunday Metal – Halestorm

Halestorm – “Freak Like Me”

Another powerful singer in Lzzy Hale.

Write your name in gasoline, and set that shit on fire.

Sunday Metal – The Pretty Reckless

The Pretty Reckless – “Follow Me Down”

Taylor Momsen has a powerful voice

 

Sunday Metal – Lita Ford & Lzzy Hale

Lita Ford & Lzzy Hale – “Close My Eyes Forever”

 

Sunday Metal – Spread Eagle

Spread Eagle – “Back on the Bitch”

An interesting band. They came about in 1990, the tail end of “80’s hair metal”, but these guys were much harder than Poison and Warrant. Just listen to the production on this song: it’s heavy.

While some songs were cheesy (like “Hot Sex”), they had some really good stuff like “Thru These Eyes”:

I recall when I worked in radio, being at a convention. Spread Eagle was playing nearby and I asked the rep from MCA about attending. They were surprised I wanted to attend. Told me right there the band was going to go no where because it looked like the record company wasn’t behind them. Alas, such is the business.

Sunday Metal – Sugartooth

Sugartooth – “Sold My Fortune”

It’s a shame these guys got lost in the shuffle of “must find more grunge bands that sound like Soundgarden”. But such is the music business. They were pretty solid.

Sunday Metal – Girlschool

Girlschool with “Auld Lang Syne”

Happy New Year!

Sunday Metal – Tesla

Tesla “Caught in a Dream”

One of my favorite songs, because of the message:

Forget color, forget race, and just be one big happy face
Among this sea of people, live among God’s creatures, sharing love
That was sent down from above, here to share with one another
Father, brother, sister, mother, everybody sharing love, sharing love

I’m caught up in a dream, I’m gonna wish for it all
No one’s gonna tell me how, no way, this is my dream now
I’m caught up in what seems simply impossible
I ain’t gonna change a thing, no way, it’s my dream, this is my dream

I close my eyes and everything will be alright
Here in my fantasy, living in harmony
Make my dream come alive

Be love.

A new year is upon us.

And I ain’t gonna change a thing. Because THIS is my dream.

Make this dream come alive in 2017.

Share love.

Sunday Metal – Lemmy, Billy Gibbons, Dave Grohl
