ZHENX - Zhenx (Showcase)

Artist: 
Zhenx
Release Date: 
2017
Released: 
Europe
Genre: 
Melodic Rock
 
This is an interesting project put together by ex-Baron Rojo bassist, Gorka Alegre, in 2016.
 
This project enlists some of Spain's finest rock musicians along with a host of other well known guests.
 
Included in the line-up is Herman Rarebell who is ex-Scorpions drummer, Bill Leverty of Firehouse, on guitars and David Reece, ex-Accept and Bangalore Choir, providing duet vocals.
 
The handling of lead vocals and providing a contribution to songwriting is David Saylor, who was ex-Push UK.
The final result was undertaken over a 12 month period and was completed in 2017.
 
The finished hard rock album is superb, hard hitting and melodic.  Once again, David Saylor's voice feels so much at home but moves in a different direction to his solo albums and other projects he was involved with in the past.
 
Zhenx is for fans who are into bands like Def Leppard and China, aswell as early Gotthard albums.
 
David Saylor passed away early 2017 and sadly, he never got to hear the final mix.

http://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/one-on-one-110-dokken

In episode 110 of One On One With Mitch Lafon, Mitch is joined by The Voice of DOKKEN, Don Dokken.

In this episode Don discusses the making of a new Dokken album, talks about George Lynch and Jeff Pilson, chooses Dokken's BEST album, talks about his voice, newest member Mark Boals, Heavy Montreal, and much more.

Quotes from the interview: "Fans expect you to sound exactly like you did on the record that you did 30 years ago and they expect you to sound amazing every night."

"I didn't know George very well and we had friction from day one. We just have totally different personalities."

"Jeff (Pilson) was the most multi-talented of anybody in the band. He plays bass well. He plays guitar well and he plays piano. He's multi-faceted and was always good at recording."

"For me, the masterpiece is Dysfunctional."

This episode is co-hosted by FIREHOUSE guitarist, Bill Leverty.

News from Firehouse guitarist BILL LEVERTY:
 
"I have a new song called 'Strong' that I just released. You can check out a pretty long audio sample on the front page of my website below. I am really happy to let you know that the fine folks who host and work on my website have re-designed the site from the ground up. If you, or anyone you know, might need a website or hosting of a site, I can't recommend PCZero.net highly enough. I've been with them for 12 years now and I've never been happier. If you get a chance, please go over and have a look around.

Finally, I hope to see you on tour this year. You can see some of the dates we have so far on the 'tour' page of the site.
Thanks so much for your many years of support and please contact me anytime you want. I will respond!!

All my best, Bill."
