King’s X live at The Blind Tiger, Greensboro, NC on September 12th

A big shout out to Crow and the Crows Nest for being involved with rock in the Triad as long as I can remember. It made my night, not to be watching a cover band, and a bad rendition of Coyote Ugly! It’s was a solid performance by all the bands, with King’s X bringing the big guns to close the show. If the vibe at this show is any indication for the rest of their gigs, it is well worth it!

A Sound of Thunder – Tales From the Deadside Review

Wading through a sea of new bands there are few that have made as positive impact on me as A Sound of Thunder. My first exposure was when I saw them opening for my very first Raven show. I was already pretty amped for the show because as a lifelong Raven fan to finally be able to see them was a dream come true. Typically under these circumstances I don’t care who is opening, but ASoT made such an impact on me with their songs and delivery I was blown away.

Voodoo Hill – Waterfall Review

Voodoo Hill, the outstanding collaboration of Italian guitar wizard Dario Mollo and legendary singer/bassist Glenn Hughes (and if I have to tell you who he is, well, hang your head in shame and go find out.) This is their third album in 15 years and like a fine wine they get better and better. Mollo is best known for his work with Tony Martin (ex-Black Sabbath vocalist) in a band called The Cage, while Hughes is fresh off his classic rock trip with Black Country Communion and California Breed.

Kings of Spade – Kings of Spade Review

I had never heard of Kings of Spade until just before they took the stage opening for King’s X recently. All I knew up until that moment was that my friend Dennis told me I wasn’t going to believe her voice. As soon as Kasi Nunes started you could’ve knocked me over with a feather at this fantastically soulful and bluesy voice. Not only was her voice amazing, but her band was phenomenal too. I could not wait to get my hands on their album and let the tunes wash over my ears.

Clutch – Psychic Warfare Review

From Sci Fi to Spaghetti Western – ‘Psychic Warfare’ is real! I don’t know if it’s that I have been living under a rock for the last 25 years but I cannot for the life of me, tell you why Clutch never hit my radar. Luckily all is not lost as the band is about to release their 12th, self-produced album through Weathermaker Records ‘Psychic Warfare’.
‘Psychic Warfare’ was the first album in ages that, when it was over, I wanted more.

Interview with Killian Khan (Vocals) (Killer Khan)

I had no idea that people were laboring to try to find us. I suppose we weren’t that easy to find since they had been looking for ten years, and it’s funny and coincidental that we had been toying with the idea of doing a new album since October of last year. I thought it was around New Years but my girl friend told me I’ve been messing with this for a whole year now.

But getting back to the “Kill Devil Hills” reissue; I thought it was great that a label would want to re-master and reissue the CD, it’s a great sounding disc and I’m very proud of it, it took a lot of work to make it the great sounding disc that it is. Jamie King did a great job re-mastering it and that’s why I chose him and his studio to record the new album.
