EDITORS’ NOTES

With his style of mainstream metal, Sebastian Bach no longer need worry about the latest musical trends. His hardcore audience loves him, and they love the late-‘80s/early-‘90s metal-based sounds of distorted guitars, pounding drums, and Bach’s larger-than-life vocals. As long as the songs capture the right energy and the right sound blasts from the car speakers, it’s a good day. Being a lifelong hard rock fan himself, Bach understands this. So, it's no surprise that 2014’s Give ‘Em Hell features a list of well-known metal and hard rock musicians. His friends Duff McKagan (Velvet Revolver, Guns N’ Roses), John 5 (Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie), and Steve Stevens (Billy Idol) guest alongside guitarist Devin Bronson and drummer Bobby Jarzombek, with producer Bob Marlette (Black Sabbath, Shinedown, Alice Cooper) handling things behind the soundboard. Tunes such as “Hell Inside My Head,” “Harmony,” and “All My Friends Are Dead” click into their natural hard rock grooves; “Gun to a Knife Fight” and “Taking Back Tomorrow” shade toward metal; “Rock n Roll Is a Vicious Game” is a power ballad with modern country accents.

It's not Slave To the Grind, but its still really good!

Not Counting, his 2 live CDs, Bach has released 3 Solo albums (plus the program-metal Frameshift cd) and he has been consistent. Angel Down was a heavy Bach album, Kicking and Screaming was more hard rock, and this new one is a mix of those two and the Frameshift cd. Harmony and Push Away are 2 of the best songs he has ever done. They show some real growth, even for someone who has been doing this for many years. The only song I skip is Rock and Roll is a Vicious Game. I can tell you that a few of the other tunes aren't going to strike you off the bat, but as you hear them over a few times, they latch on and makes the 99% of the disc a great listen.

Bach is a Beast!!!!!

Bach was, is, and will forever be a vocal monster! Never afraid of the blistering high notes and always a great song writer! He is the Youth Gone Wild!!!

Not Good - Sounds like Album #2

Only 3 decent songs on the record. The rest sound like the middling songs on the last album with boring repetitive guitar riffs. Downloaded 2 of the 3 decent songs and passed on the rest.
