Please tell us a few words about the new release, about the music on it as a whole or a few words on each track in part. How are you happy with the final release.
Stu and I wanted an album that was sonically chemically put together like an early Black Sabbath album or Judas Priest album. Your head is not constantly sawed off by metal and you have a chance to catch your breath on one track here and there to give you a sonic pallet cleaner, I love that about the early metal albums from Black Sabbath, Queen, Judas Priest.
Suicide King....is a tune for my love of speed and a kind of a hellbent for leather sort of song.It's an ode to the road racing motorcyclists who need a sidecar for their nuts. They are the Suicide Kings
The Hammer… Is a song about getting older but not necessarily better, every day you look in the mirror and another nail in that coffin is pounded in by the hammer.
Repossession of Nothing… Deals with dropping all that negative shit that everybody keeps dragging around with them, it's just a ball and a chain and one needs to stop it, drop it and move forward.
Lovesick Blue… Is it as it sounds ,sad brokenhearted love song. Wanted it simple and sounding like an Irish lament song. A love sick funeral march for the broken hearted bone head.
Dance Devil Dance… Is this song about living the high life caring for no one and paving your way and paying the ticket to a seat on the hell train ,somebody be waiting there to dance with you and it ain't your mama .... or is it.
The Devil's Preacher… About a southern hellfire and brimstone preacher who on the outside seems to be preaching in the light of the Lord but has other motive's as some usually do.
Nottingham Grove… A song about meeting your true love from a very early age and growing old together and of a favorite place you could call your own and only the best things in life happen to the end.
Delivered from the ashes… A song about a witch wrongly accused and burned at the stake only to be raised again from her ashes by her sisters, only devastation and revenge can be conjured up.
War Baby… A song about generations and generations of the same families men fighting for their country and dying.It seemed they have a lot to live up to.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
It has The rumblings of Racer X and Judas Priest but you may pick up a few others in there as well.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
It was recorded between Sydney, Australia, Lake Tahoe, California, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. We use the Voxer app between Stu and I to write and comment back-and-forth from the top of the world to the bottom it was actually a lot of fun. We left Rev alone to do his deed and his deed was done.
What can you tell us about the cover artwork? Is there a link between the artwork and the lyrics? What are the topics of your lyrics?
The cover to me shows beauty and strength and that don't fuck with me attitude. That is my daughter Madison Martin on the cover and she is the biggest metalhead I know, I'm just trying to keep up.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
Would love to get the interest to be able to tour and spread the love. But of course to give love, it's nice to get love. It's up to the fans and listeners if your wanting this kind of music you got to fund it even as small at buying the music.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
