Hollywood Vampires - Rise

I dunno what the deal exactly is with Alice Cooper and not only he keeps releasing stuff under his own name (case and point “Paranormal”), but he also did a weird tribute to his fallen drinking buddies through the years, by creating the Hollywood Vampires along with Aerosmith’s Joe Perry and Johnny Depp (who was in a number of bands during his youth, the most prominent being him playing guitar for a bit for Florida hard rockers Rock City Angels) and releasing a covers heavy album back in 2015, that on

Lordi live in London 2018


On stage throughout the support acts there were large objects covered in cloth, before Lordi began, they uncovered an epic drum kit. And a demonic archway to hell, even lit with fire to guide lost souls. The lighting melded perfectly, with fiery reds and yellow, on top of a cool contrasting blue.
 
After a fantastic job of warming up the crowd, by Ego Kills and Silver Dust, the excitement was at fever point. Even the drummer’s test solo before the start got cheers and applause. The monsters hit the stage, to deafening cheers and screams.

Alice Cooper premieres video for new single “The Sound of A” & announces the physical release for February 23rd 2018

Today sees the official video premiere for “The Sound of A”.

The song has a special meaning; it is in fact the first song that Alice Cooper wrote entirely on his own back in 1967. The song was forgotten until Dennis Dunaway, the bass player of the original Alice Cooper band, rediscovered it and played it to Alice, after which the two of them updated the song and then recorded it for the “Paranormal” album. With its psychedelic sound, swirling guitars and the mysterious Hammond organ, it is one of the most hypnotic songs on “Paranormal”.
