AC/DC: Rock or Bust" Listening Party NYC 11/18/14


Aussie hard rockers AC/DC had a listening party for their upcoming new album, Rock or Bust at NYC's Webster Hall, last night, Nov. 18, 2014. This is their first release since 2008's solid ass kicker, Black Ice. Entry was free, along with free beer, an exclusive tee, a cool pass (both of which are pictured below), and you got to, of course, listen to the album.
Angus and I! Well, OK, not the real Angus but still!

There were three contests conducted that nigh: for free tattoos, an autographed poster, and an autographed guitar. Your intrepid reporter won a total of... none, I won none of them. But, then I never expected to win, so it's really now big deal.

 This pretty lady announced the winners of the tattoo and signed poster contest.
Gary Dell'Abate of the Howard Stern Show, announced the lucky winner of the grand prize, a signed guitar!

The stage which had "For Those About to Rock" canons had a giant screen playing video footage and images of the band and their fans.

We finally got to hear, the album, and man, it's a serious rocker! While, I do need to get it and listen to it at home (it comes out Dec. 2), to get a real feel for it, it seems to be one of their best albums in a long time. It might be even better than Black Ice, was! "Miss Adventure" and "Dogs of War" sound like my favorite tracks, for now.

Then, Angus Young, Brian Johnson, and producer Brendon O'Brien came out! We all went insane when this happened! Holy crap! This was THE night's highlight, to have two rock legends talk for a bit and present the latest AC/DC video, the title track "Rock or Bust"! I mean that is beyond fucking awesome!

In all, a very fun night that was a treat for long time AC/DC fans like me. I'm so glad that all these years later, they are still making headbanging, fun, kick ass rock 'n' roll!

New Years Day- Epidemic

Musician: New Years Day
Album Title: Epidemic
Genre/ Subgenre: Alternative Rock/ Post-hardcore
Label: Grey Area Records

First and foremost, I don't think I have reviewed an album on this site, since this blog's earliest days. But, with me covering more and more of the metal/ hard rock scene, I figured going back to music reviews might be fun and helpful to some of my readers.

For those not in the know, New Years Day is an alternative rock band with a look and style that definitely leads towards to the gothic, dark, and horror-centric. In fact, they describe their sound as "haunted housecore".

Anyways, I love the sound the band has precured since moving away from the their more poppy sounding debut, My Dear. This awesome EP, Epidemic, continues that harder sound. It's their first album released by Grey Area Records, since they have parted ways with Century Media.

This one continues the sound and style of their second full length album Victims and Villains. Epidemic is only five songs long, but every song is good, with a couple, being downright excellent! The album opens with the fun "Joker", though that is honestly my least favorite track on it. But, from there it goes to even better "Other Side", and then enters the last three songs, which are the album's true highlights. They mix a good rocking sound with some dark imagery and lyrics, all of which are delivered excellently by the band's beautiful frontwoman Ash Costello.She has a good voice that is perfectly apt at carrying a melody ad bring out the right emotion for each track.

The first video off of the album is "Defame Me" which is a catchy and darkly seductive track. The song has a cool and haunting electronic intro, and dives right into a rock beat with some great hooks. Ash is at her best here, and the video mixing elements of horror and sexuality, which is where they are at their best. This song, perhaps the best on the album, really captures that perfectly. You can see the video at end of this review.

At a low price, Epidemic is a great way to introduce new fans to what this band is about. It's also an excellent way to please their already established fans until a new full length album comes out.

Superior Iron Man #1

Title: Superior Iron Man
Issue Number: 1
Writer: Tom Taylor
Art: Yildiray Cinar
Cover Artist (Displayed Above): Tom Fowler and Brad Anderson
Editor: Mark Paniccia
Publisher: Marvel
Genre: Superhero Action
Cover Price: $3.99 (US)

During the events depicted in the current Marvel series, Axis, the Red Skull had been infused with mental powers of the deceased Professor X. To stop him Dr. Strange, Dr. Doom, and the Scarlett Witch used an inversion spell, but instead it affected the heroes and villains on the island who had teamed to battle the nefarious villain. Now, villains are trying to be heroic and vice versa. Enter Tony Stark billionaire genius and also known as the superhero, Iron Man, who is one of those affected.

He has become a huge (or some would argue turned into an even bigger) douchebag. He has given out his new extremis formula to the "beautiful people" for free, to keep them looking great. But, to remain so, they will have to pay him a price. The vigilante Daredevil has already seen the results of this and is not happy about it. On top of that his ego is even more enlarged, he is dealing out unnecessary levels of violence, and he's back to drinking heavily.

The writing by Taylor on this book is fast and fun. It's really a hoot to see Stark take his personality to the nth level and being the biggest dick that he can be. His interaction with his girlfriend Pepper is true highlight, and you wish she would just kick him in the balls. The ending is especially cool and has me pumped for the next issue.

Meanwhile, the art by Cinar is beautiful. He's great at drawing beautiful people, a must in this book and story. There are also a bunch of really cool and awesome looking variant covers. The one above by Fowler and Anderson is a great parody of the classic "Demon in a Bottle" The Invincible Iron Man cover from the 70s, while playing tribute to the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Be warned though, neither Rocket Raccoon nor Groot are in this book.

That being said, what a fun, interesting, and exciting start to a new Iron Man book. I don't know how long this version of Stark will last. But, for now seeing him think he is so superior, makes for a must read.

Axis: Carnage #1

Title: Axis: Carnage
Issue Number: 1
Writer: Rick Spears
Art: German Peralta
Editor: Axel Alonso
Publisher: Marvel
Cover Price: $3.99 (US)

During the events portrayed in Axis, the evil Red Skull had stolen the brain, and with it the psychic powers of, the dead Prof. X. To stop him Dr. Strange, Dr. Doom, and the Scarlet Witch cast an inversion spell, which affected some of the superheroes and supervillains of the world. Including, in this case the Spider-Man foe and bloodthirty psychopath known as Carnage. He is, of course, the symbiote-infused alter ego of serial killer Cletus Kasady.

At the start of this first issue, our "hero" is swinging through the streets of NYC having to deal with his new and conflicting "feelings", something he has never had to deal with before. As such, he is driven by the need to be heroic. But, as a kill crazed maniac, that is easier said than done. For example, he hacks two men he thinks are threatening a woman. When, he discovers that one of them is her pimp and that she is a hooker, he punches her out. In the meantime, another psychotic villain, the Sin Eater, is killing people. This supervillain feeds off the sins of others, after he kills them "to save them". The mix and meeting of these two makes for a nice added bit of irony.

The writing by Spears is fast and fun. As a villain like Carnage is basically interested only in killing he isn't the most profound of characters, but that works to the book's advantage. His having to deal with feelings and trying to figure what is the "right thing" to do is darkly funny. There also a healthy amount of graphic violence, which is complemented perfectly by the realistic style of Perlata. I simply love the art in this book!

I don't know if this is a permanent title or just a mini-series, but it's off to a great start. Not sure how they can keep up the fun and not let this fall into mindless and repetitive drivel, but for right now this is a recommended horror, supervillain title. And, if you are a Carnage fan, like I am, then I give it my highest recommendation to you!
