    Rock Mag '95

    We're back with another fun read-through of metal on the printed page with Rock Mag '95! This week we're thumbing through the May 1995 issue of Metal Edge Magazine. As you probably remember, 1995 was a strange time in the hard rock and metal world and this magazine is proof of that! Grunge was huge by this time but there was a lot going on in the hard rock and metal worlds. This magazine issue is a definite clash of cultures as it covers stories on Pearl Jam, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Skid Row, Biohazard, KIX, Megadeth, Queensrych and loads more.
    Additionally, we take a look at our favorite parts of these magazines with the mailbag section, question of the month, and outdated advertisements. It's a fun flip-through from a bygone era. What's even better this time is that you can flip through the magazine with us by going to this link https://fliphtml5.com/hqrk/etyi/basic
    We hope you enjoy Rock Mag '95 and SHARE with a friend!

    New Noize KISS Edition

    New Noize KISS Edition

    We're back to talk all the latest news on the Hottest Band in the Land with New Noize 15 - KISS Edition! After a pretty non-eventful 2020, KISS has ramped up things this year. This week we're gonna touch on some interesting recent news items pertaining to the band.
    It was recently announced that A&E will air 'Shout It Out Loud,' a four-hour 2-night documentary on the band. The press release seems to make it pretty clear that the story will be mostly told from the perspective of Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. Apparently, original members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss declined to be involved in the project. Will this have a negative affect on the documentary? Will it be portrayed as a one-sided history? We share our thoughts on it.
    Related to the A&E documentary, KISS will do a live performance at the Tribeca Film Festival following a screening of the event. With this being the band's first performance in 2021, what can we expect? Will rarities get played? Will tape roll? Listen and hear our thoughts.
    There might be more than one KISS movie coming out. A possible biopic is close to production for Netflix. With some big name production people mentioned as well as a tie-in with Universal Music Group, this has the potential for a large budget. However, how the band is portrayed is, once again, at the heart of concern for KISS fans. There's a lot of possibilities with this one and we go over several scenarios.
    Another new development in the KISS universe is the upcoming Vinnie Vincent May Metal Madness show at S.I.R. Teasing in his press release (ie. group post) that this "could be" the last of these $500 per ticket parties, he promised more spirits, food, fun, and, oh yeah, music at this upcoming event. Will it be the last of these parties? Will salad be served? Will any actual songs be played instead of mindless noodling? We share our theories.
    Wrapping things up this week is some discussion on a KISS fan-created project that's apparently gone off the rails. A book called Magic: KISS Khronicles started taking pre-orders in 2018. Judging by some sample pages and the author's notable history of knowing the most minute details of rare and live KISS photos, this book seemed to have everything going for it. Fast forward 3 years and the book has still not been delivered and, it appears, keeps getting pushed back another 3 months every 3 months. A lot of buyers are up in arms and wondering where their book or refund is. We talk about this project and it's apparent hurdles in the episode.
    We hope you enjoy New Noize 15 - KISS Edition - Ep447 and SHARE with a friend!

    Vinny Appice Remembers Holy Diver - Albums Unleashed

    Vinny Appice Remembers Holy Diver - Albums Unleashed

    Legendary drummer Vinny Appice joins us this week to examine the making of Dio's Holy Diver album. Coming off success with Black Sabbath, Ronnie James Dio was in a tough spot. While the band was in a good place professionally, interpersonal relationships were severely hampered. While in Sabbath, Dio was offered a solo record deal and decided to snap it up and bring drummer Vinny Appice with him. What resulted is an absolute masterpiece of metal music.
    Holy Diver was released May 25, 1983 and immediately gained traction in a growing rock and metal scene. Powered by the singles 'Holy Diver' and 'Rainbow in the Dark,' the album is loaded with timeless songs. The rhythm section of Vinny Appice and Jimmy Bain combined with guitarist Vivian Campbell's soaring leads and Dio's majestic vocals produced an album that sounds as amazing today as it did upon its release.
    In this discussion Vinny shares his memories of this album and era. From their split with Sabbath to the formation of the band to the recording of the album, you'll hear about it all. There are some great behind the scenes stories in this chat about the making of the album at the legendary Sound City Studios. Additionally, you'll get stories from Vinny about the songwriting and recording process for Holy Diver.
    The chat wraps up with some other entertaining stories from this era including backward track recording, performing seances, and Ronnie's addiction to....video games. It's a great view into the making of a metal classic. We hope you enjoy Holy Diver - Albums Unleashed and SHARE with a friend!

    The Blue Murder debut album has achieved a massive cult following over the years, with its legend growing over time. In this discussion, Carmine shares his thoughts on the legacy of the band, what led to the band's fortunes taking a bad turn, and why it didn't last longer.

Long Time Coming

Came across a mention of this podcast while reading an article on the Sleaze Roxx.com. Decided to check it out, and have loved it ever since. Listened to it weekly while at work, until I retired last year. Then I downloaded the Stitcher app, and listened to every episode except one that aired on April 1st. I am now qualified to make a review of the Decibel Geek Podcast. These guys get it. I enjoy listening to two guys who I would of hung out with in high school and talked about the music we love. I would recommend this podcast to anyone who enjoys hard rock and heavy metal. And when this world gets back on its feet again I look forward to going out and supporting the bands we have all been listening to.

Great show!

My interest in the whereabouts of Vinnie Vincent brought me to this podcast about ten years ago and I’ve been a fan of it since. Each show is entertaining and worth a listen for fans of all things hard rock. One of the best music podcasts out there. Keep up the great work guys.

ADDICTED TO PICTO ,

Czynszak and Camaro stole my brain!

Check out this podcast! If you like taking rock music, hearing cool interviews, and discovering new bands Decibel Geek needs to be on your subscription list. No doubt if I had known Chris and AAron when we were kids we definitely would have traded some cassettes.
