This year marks a big one in Creed’s musical trajectory, as the post-grunge boys are commemorating the 15th anniversary of their fundamental 1997 album, ‘My Own Prison,’ with a cross-country tour, which reaches the Fillmore in Detroit on May 31.
Dark New Day’s latest full-length, ‘New Tradition,’ packs a variety of hard-hitting rock sounds. That having been said, it’s no surprise that band members have a wide range of musical tastes and influences — and that breadth really came out when the guys recently rattled off their top five albums that changed their lives.
The first time most of us heard about Mark Tremonti, he was heading up post-grunge behemoths Creed, touring the country and playing bread-and-butter rock hits such as ‘My Own Prison,’ ‘Torn’ and ‘What’s This Life For?’ That was in the late-‘90s and early-‘00s, and Creed have since gone on to become multiplatinum rock sensations.
Heavy metallers Mastodon head out on the ‘Heritage Hunter’ tour tonight (April 4) — a massive, co-headlining trek across the country with fellow hard-hitting act Opeth. Mastodon are touring in support of their current release, ‘The Hunter,’ and when it comes to the music that made it onto the album, guitarist Bill Kelliher describes it as “kind of a rebirth.”
Record Store Day happens on April 21 this year, and the exclusive releases scheduled to drop on that day are mounting. Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, has revealed Ozzy Osbourne 7” and 12” vinyl releases will be unleashed for Record Store Day 2012.
It’s hard to believe, but the boys of Creed celebrate the 15th anniversary of their multiplatinum debut album, ‘My Own Prison,’ this year. Of course, a milestone like that can’t go by without some kind of celebration, and in that spirit, the guys — singer Scott Stapp, guitarist Mark Tremonti, bass player Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips — are setting out on a North American tour this April.
Corrosion of Conformity have been making the heaviest of music for roughly three decades. Of course, a lot has changed since these punk-metal gents first started out in the ‘80s; notably, the Internet has altered the playing field. Drummer Reed Mullin is taking all the change in stride and even finds little humor in the many various names people have made up to describe different genres of music these days.
Vancouver, British Columbia-based hard rock quartet the Veer Union first grabbed the attention of the rock community with their 2009 radio hit, ‘Seasons.’ Now, the gentlemen are back with a new album, ‘Divide the Blackened Sky,’ and the disc is jam-packed with fast, hard riffing and lead singer Crispin Earl’s always-soulful vocals.
Slash’s sophomore solo album, “Apocalyptic Love,” drops May 22 on the guitarist’s own label, Dik Hayd International. The famed six-stringer has been getting fans pumped for the release with a series of killer webisodes, the last of which has just been posted on his official YouTube channel.
Janus aren’t the kind of rock band that’s satisfied with writing songs about getting wasted and partying hard every night. Just look at the concept behind their last album, ‘Red Right Return.’ The set took inspiration from the 1920s Russian Constructionist art, while the title refers to the famed nautical term that captains use when returning to home port safely.
