Who: Dead Daises
Where: the land down under infiltrated by former members of Whitesnake and others.
What: Classic Rock for a modern world
When: year of origin 2012
Sounds Like: Classic Aerosmith on steroids
Originating from the land down under, in less than four years The Dead Daisies have already seen multiple line- up changes that has already resulted in David Lowy on guitar being the sole remaining original member. However, the rank and file of the current Dead Daisies have swelled to include Marcus Mendoza on bass, Brian Tichy on drums and Doug Aldrich on guitar (all prior Whitesnake members) playing alongside the powerhouse vocals of John Corabi formerly of Motley Crue. As a result there is no doubting that the performance was going to be questionable. The difficulty remains the lack of a predictable line up and the longevity of this incredible band.
What is not in question is that this year’s release Make Some Noise totally lives up to its name with high octane, high energy, balls to the walls classic rock blues infused supercharged rock and roll that is screaming potential album of the year. Clocking in at 47 minutes with ten supercharged self compositions plus two impressive covers (“Fortunate Son” and “Join Together”) there is absolutely no let down and no filler.
There is nothing dead about this band that is clearly relevant in the sometimes redundant Classic Rock genre. Make Some Noise clearly elevates the bands game with a linear progression from the self titled album to the impressive sophomore effort Revolucion both of which are already out of print. However considering the buzz of the highly impressive critically acclaimed Make Some Noise it would be easy to predict that the two prior albums will be back in print soon very soon.
New Artists coming at you all the time.
