Rat Pak Records Set To Release LYNCH MOB ‘The Brotherhood’

Artist: 
 
Produced by Chris "The Wizard" Collier (Lynch Mob; Flotsam And Jetsam; Prong; KXM), “The Brotherhood” features eleven brand new hard rock tracks from Lynch Mob. This album will surely resonate with long time fans of the band, as well as those longing for that good ol' hard rock sound and feel. "The Brotherhood” highlights the unique pairing of Oni Logan and George Lynch, and along with Sean McNabb (bass) and Jimmy D’Anda (drums), the band has created a solid offering from start to finish. From the heavy guitar riffs of the opening track “Main Offender” to the melodic album finale ”Miles Away”, Lynch Mob have once again proven they remain on top of their game and at the top of their genre!
 
On the subject of Lynch Mob’s new record, Oni Logan comments, “After doing quite a few miles together with this latest line-up of Sean McNabb and Jimmy D’Anda, we consider ourselves a pack of wolves, and we came up with the name ‘The Brotherhood’ for the title of the next Lynch Mob album. It’s got more of an adventurous sound in part and maybe a darker, colder sound to it. We are always willing to go farther. We come from the early 90’s and it's when we released the first Lynch Mob album which set a sound and course for us. Here we are 27 years later, George and I are still able to keep on stretching. As a player, as a writer, that is very important to us. Otherwise we would be fooling ourselves and fooling you”.
 
George Lynch adds, "We wrote this album as a band and the name of the record reflects what the band is about, and what all my bands have been about since I've been a kid. This is my second family. These are my brothers. You go through a lot together and have a lot of experiences together. And that then becomes a part of the music."
 
Official release date for “The Brotherhood” is Friday September 08, 2017.
 
TRACK LISTING:
01. Main Offender
02. Mr. Jekyll and Hyde
03. I'll Take Miami

JAY PARMAR Pays Tribute To 35 Years Of GEORGE LYNCH

Artist: 
 
"The video is a celebration of the music that has shaped my playing and simply because it was a blast to do." 
~ Guitarist, Producer, Recording Artist, Jay Parmar

 
East Sussex, UK / July 2016 - Guitarist Jay Parmar celebrates 35 years of Legendary Guitarist George Lynch's monster guitar playing with an impressive exhibition of electrifying and provocative guitar wizardry. Not to mention, the Axe eye-candy is to die for...

Legendary Guitarist George Lynch is best known for his work with the heavy metal band Dokken and his band Lynch Mob. Lynch is considered to be one of the most influential and famous 80's metal guitarists. He is known for his unique playing style and sound. He is ranked #47 on "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" by Guitar World magazine and is also ranked #10 on "Top 10 Metal Guitarists of All Time"

As the Guitar Guru recalls, 'the idea came to me one day of doing a video compilation of Mr. Scary's music ... I wanted to tie-it-in with my weekly YouTube show "Lynch Lycks", where I teach how to play in the style of George Lynch. It's a skill that I have acquired over the 27 years I have played and I want to share that with the many guitarists who want to learn that style. So, I listed every original studio album George has done, took a favorite clip of one song from each LP and then recorded the audio and video - so it's a historic account of George's 35 Years. I had an absolutely amazing time creating it and I'm super pleased with it! I had an absolutely amazing time creating it. It's a real privilege to have had to opportunity to do this and I'm super pleased... by the same toke, I got to play pretty much every guitar that I own, especially my collection of ESPs and the guitars I build, Spirit Dance Guitars, and of course showcase the Randall Amp (I am a Randall endorse)!' 

My GOAL is to get this video out to as many people as possible!!!  Please enjoy the entertainment...

As well as being a solo artist, Jay has worked and recorded with a variety of bands and musicians over the years, including Eden's Curse, Iron Knights and The Inner Road. Jay works from his studio, Sacred Sound, in East Sussex, UK, where he writes, records, engineers, produces, and teaches.

LYNCH MOB - Rebel (Review)

information persons: 
content: 
86%
Produced By: 
George Lynch & Chris Collier
Release Date: 
2015
Released: 
Worldwide
Musical Style: 
Hard Rock
Score: 
87
Label: 
Frontiers
Artist: 
 
Everywhere you turn right now, there’s George Lynch, whether it be a solo release, a collaboration with another high profile artist (such as Michael Sweet) and now here again with a brand new Lynch Mob record.
Terrific to see Oni Logan fronting the band for another album, for me, he has always been the voice of this band. And great to see all songs produced and written by the duo.
Joining in the fun here is the perfect rhythm section for the occasion – Jeff Pilson and Brian Tichy.
 
As expected George keeps to his current style, which are his much loved riff and solo guitar playing, over a pretty heavy, high impact contemporary sound.
I love the production on this album – it’s tight and well balanced – everything can be heard with no one element overpowering another.
 
Song wise you can’t go past the heavy commercial groove of Automatic Fix or the thumping bass of Between the Truth and a Lie; while Testify is slow moving, grinding, ear bending heaviness; and Sanctuary is another pretty cool uptempo rocker.
Pine Tree Avenue features the biggest R&B groove of the album and along with Dirty Money represent the most alt-modern tracks.
The Ledge is a cool slower track with a hint of sentiment and some acoustic thrown in for good measure.
War is one of the very few uptempo tracks and is instantly one of my favorites.

Lynch fans will love this unquestionably. Dokken fans…mostly. Outsiders…not sure.
The production is awesome, the guitar work sensational, but the pacing could be a little more varied. A couple more uptempo tracks would have been nice. But killer groove as always.

Rockers Lynch Mob are back this summer with their most-anticipated release to date. Rebel, the band's 8th studio release, is slated for worldwide release on August 21st via Frontiers Music SRL. The first song released from Rebel is the scorching 'Automatic Fix.' The song features an exciting opening riff and vocal melody and Lynch burns on one of his best guitar solos. A video for the song can be seen here:
 
 
Fans who pre-order the album via iTunes at http://radi.al/LynchMobRebeliTunes will receive an instant download of 'Automatic Fix.'
 
Talking about 'Automatic Fix,' singer Oni Logan states , 'This is an interesting song in that it was the last song that was recorded vocally. I initially thought that it might be best used as instrumental. I simply love this song because of its energy and attitude.'
 
From the blistering album opener 'Automatic Fix' to the album closer 'War,' it is clear Lynch Mob is back to show fans why they are one of rock's most-loved bands. The Lynch Mob line-up on Rebel is comprised of namesake George Lynch on guitars, Oni Logan on vocals, Jeff Pilson on bass and Brian Tichy on drums. Songs like 'Testify,' 'Sanctuary,' and 'Dirty Money' showcase Oni Logan's trademark vocal ability while putting his diverse lyrical content on full display. The album was produced by George Lynch collaborator Chris "the Wizard" Collier. An EPK talking about the new album was recently released and can be seen at: https://youtu.be/D1CaKhPItbQ
 
'With Rebel, we allowed ourselves to move outside our normally imposed self restraints and tread some forbidden sonic territories,' recalls George Lynch. 'What surprises me is no matter how far we attempt to stray away from the classic 'Lynch Mob formula,' we can never really escape the chemistry between myself and Oni. There's just a thing that happens there that's unique to us and undeniable.'
 
The tracklisting for Rebel is:
1)      Automatic Fix                                                        
2)      Between The Truth And A Lie
3)      Testify
4)      Sanctuary
5)      Pine Tree Avenue
6)      Jelly Roll
7)      Dirty Money
8)      The Hollow Queen
9)      The Ledge
10)   Kingdon Of Slaves
11)   War
Lynch Mob formed in 1989 after George Lynch parted ways with his former band Dokken. This year marks the 25th Anniversay of Lynch Mob's debut release Wicked Sensation, which is the band's most popular work to date achieving gold-selling status. The band has released seven other albums throughout their career. Lynch Mob will be touring throught the summer in support of Rebel with more information to be announced at a later date.

JIMI HENDRIX SPECIAL WITH KATHY ETCHINGHAM, PLUS GEORGE LYNCH (LYNCH MOB/SWEET LYNCH) INTERVIEW ON RICH DAVENPORT'S ROCK SHOW

Kathy Etchingham, long-term girlfriend of Jimi Hendrix during the '60s, sets the record straight to defend both Jimi's memory and herself against the many negative allegations made in the recent movie 'Jimi: All Is By My Side', which features scenes in which Kathy is violently assaulted by Hendrix, among other events, about which Kathy states, 'None of these things ever happened', and offers to produce her medical records to prove that no assaults took place. Kathy gives an eye witness account of life with Jimi from the first day he arrived in London, and offers fascinating insights into the formation of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Jimi's songwriting process, the recording of 'All Along The Watchtower', and life in swinging London with a rock legend at the point at which his career began, and later took off. 

The show also features guitar hero George Lynch, who discusses the writing and recording of the new albums by Lynch Mob ('Sun Red Sun') and Sweet / Lynch ('Only To Rise'). George chooses two songs from each release, and talks about possible touring plans for both bands.

SWEET & LYNCH - Only To Rise (Review)

information persons: 
content: 
92%
section name: 
BEST TRACKS
Produced By: 
Michael Sweet
Running Time: 
47
Release Date: 
January 23
Released: 
Worldwide
Musical Style: 
Melodic Hard Rock
Score: 
92
Label: 
Frontiers
Artist: 
 
You could spend a week discussing the musical heritage and history of Michael Sweet and George Lynch alone, but then there’s also bassist James Lomenzo and drummer Brian Tichy to consider. So in the interest of time, I’ll presume everyone reading this is well aware of the accomplishments of all these great folk. It’s actually almost unbelievable they are gathered on the one record.
 
Unlike some other cobbled together supergroups or all-star projects, when Michael Sweet was pitched this idea, he loved it so much he took over completely - asking to produce the album as well as co-writing the 12 tracks with guitarist Lynch.
And that’s what makes this album gel so well and why this works – the songs are all written in-house and therefore are a true representative mix of both artists’ attributes and influences.
It is a great mix of Sweet and Stryper’s recent melodic hard rock output with that classic Lynch Mob groove-n-sleaze.
 
The first 4 tracks are especially inspiring. The pump of The Wish and the groove and chorus of Like A Dying Rose, then the rock ballad Love Stays and the groovy free flowing Time Will Tell - all catchy tunes and all impressive representation of the talents involved.
Other highlights include the atmospheric slow burner Me Without You; the fast moving rock-n-groove of Recover; the moody September and the darker, rhythm driven Hero-Zero.
The album finishes with an old school melodic metal track Only To Rise.
 

A hard rocking album from start to finish, which I’m very impressed with. Production is well suited for the style of the music and most impressive of all is the fact all songs were co-written by Lynch and Sweet for this new partnership.
On the basis of the quality of what has been delivered here, fans enthusiastic reaction and plans to tour this mean this is one star project that looks set to go the distance.
One of my favourite releases from both main participants.

SWEET & LYNCH - Only To Rise (Showcase)

Artist: 
Only To Rise
Produced By: 
Michael Sweet
Running Time: 
47
Release Date: 
January 23
Released: 
Worldwide
Genre: 
Melodic Hard Rock
 
SWEET & LYNCH is a brand new band centered around the talents of guitarist/vocalist Michael Sweet of  Christian hard rockers STRYPER and iconic guitarist George Lynch (LYNCH MOB, ex DOKKEN) along with bassist James Lomenzo (ex MEGADETH, WHITE LION, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY) and drummer Brian Tichy (ex WHITESNAKE).

“SWEET & LYNCH was born as the brainchild of Serafino Perugino, President of Frontiers Music”, recalls Sweet. “He asked me to basically sing on this record and then I suggested producing it and co-wrote the songs with George”, continues the singer. Brian Tichy and James Lomenzo were then called in to complete the lineup. Now a complete a band, plans are being formulated to rehearse and book a tour to play the music included on this amazing debut album “Only to Rise” to the fans in a live setting.

“It’s an incredible combination of classic 70’s and 80’s”, tells Michael Sweet. “You will hear some flavors of Journey, Bad Company, Dokken, Van Halen and Stryper. James and Brian are amazing musicians. They tore it up. The drums and bass are just as impressive as the guitars. Everybody really delivered... The musicianship level on this is top notch. It sounds as if we were all in the studio playing together and we were not. Basically, George wrote some riffs about a minute to a minute and a half long. I wrote lyrics and melodies then arranged them. Then Brian and James came out and tracked the drums and bass, as well as some rhythm stuff. We then sent it back to George to add the guitars."

The combination of Sweet’s powerful, crystal clear vocals and Lynch’s unmatched guitar tone, provide the force and drive that the album needed. The result is truly a “state of the art” Hard Rock album, with fabulous melodies played to perfection.
An absolute must for all fans of Sweet and Lynch's musical stylings!

SWEET & LYNCH
Michael Sweet – lead vocals, guitars
George Lynch – lead guitars
James Lomenzo – bass guitar
Brian Tichy - drums

via Frontiers Music SRL
 
Exclusive Pre-Order Available via PledgeMusic at http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/sweetlynch
 
Two of hard rock’s most notable figures have partnered up for a new project. Iconic vocalist/guitarist Michael Sweet of Stryper and legendary guitarist George Lynch of Lynch Mob/Dokken have teamed up to form a new supergroup Sweet & Lynch. Joining them on this new musical adventure is bassist James Lomenzo and drummer Brian Tichy. The band will be releasing their debut album Only To Rise on January 23rd 2015 in Europe and January 27th, 2015 in North America via Frontiers Music Srl. Sweet & Lynch recently launched a pre-order for the new album via PledgeMusic. The pre-order features various bundle packages for fans and is live at:
 
"When I was approached to help put together an all-star lineup, instantly I thought of George Lynch,” explains Michael Sweet. “George is one of the most talented guitarists out there and a ‘bucket list’ player for me. George wrote riffs/basic ideas and I wrote melodies, lyrics and arranged and completed the songs. I knew that we would compliment each other's style. When you add the amazing rhythm section of Brian Tichy and James Lomenzo, you just can't go wrong with this line-up. It really is a special project and I'm honored to be a part of it!"
 
From the opening notes of “The Wish” to the drum solo finish on the album-closer “Only To Rise,” it is evident that this musical partnership between Michael Sweet’s unmistakable voice and George Lynch’s signature guitar tone has yielded incredible results. Songs “Like A Dying Rose,” “Me Without You” and “Strength In Numbers” showcase the diversity that permeates throughout the entire album. Sweet & Lynch released a lyric video for the 9/11 inspired track “September” which can be seen here: http://youtu.be/i5G5uzrYWXw. An EPK featuring Michael and George discussing this new project can be seen here: http://youtu.be/BPYIoe0fTqI. Only To Rise was produced by Michael Sweet who also produced the last Stryper album, No More Hell To Pay, which received massive fan praise and critical acclaim alike.
 
The track listing for Only To Rise is:                                                          
 
1)      The Wish                                                    
2)      Dying Rose
3)      Love Stays

SWEET/LYNCH - A 4-Track Preview Of Debut Album

Artist: 
 
Vocalist Michael Sweet (Stryper) and guitarist George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob) have teamed up for SWEET/LYNCH, an album designed by Frontiers Records CEO Serafino, which is due for release early in 2015.
I’ve been fortunate enough to preview 4 tracks from the upcoming album and can’t speak highly enough of the tracks!
 
Both Lynch and Sweet impress the hell out of me on these tracks and the backing band of James Lomenzo (Megadeth, White Lion, Black Label Society) and drummer Brian Tichy (S.U.N., Whitesnake) means that if these four tracks are anything to go by, all the songs written for this album are going to be hammered home by this ultra-powerful rhythm section.
 
Sweet just sounds extraordinarily good on these songs. And Lynch is shredding and riffing like a man possessed. This is something big to look forward to.
 
Briefly – the four tracks I have heard are:
 
The Wish – A brilliant, rousing hard rocker with a thumping beat and an instant guitar riff, and a melodic vocal driven chorus that isn’t huge, but is immediately stored in the memory bank for endless repeating in your head later. And Lynch gets to display the best of his guitar work during a decent length solo.
 
Like A Dying Rose – An even better chorus on this one. The beat isn’t as intense or as fast as The Wish, but the chorus is huge and delivers a sound mix of everything that made Dokken and Stryper Platinum sellers. A big big vocal!
 
Love Stays – A slow, groove orientated ballad with a direct, impactful chorus and some classy guitar playing throughout.
 
Time Will Tell – Less intense than the other tracks, but more uptempo, adding good variety to the 4 tracks previewed. Another strong, harmony filled chorus and some choppy riffing.
 
A 90-second preview of another track Divine can be heard here: http://www.chirb.it/eKcwes
 
And you can hear just how awesome the track Time Will Tell sounds right here: http://audio.chirbit.com/michaelhsweet_1406294226.mp3
 
Stay tuned for more preview samples and updates on SWEET/LYNCH.

There's been a number of recent high profile releases from Frontiers Records of late, but there's plenty more to come. Three such releases include new albums from Trixter, Allen/Lande and the partnership between Michael Sweet and George Lynch.
Recent info from the label on these projects is as follows:
 
Trixter - "Back in 2012, we released the first new studio album of original material from Trixter in 20 years! Happy to announce that the wait for the next album will be a lot shorter as the band has just inked a new deal with us and we'll be putting out their new studio album in 2015!"
 
Allen/Lande - "Russell Allen (Symphony X, Adrenaline Mob) and Jorn Lande (MasterPlan) have gotten together and recorded another classic metal album under the Allen-Lande moniker! The new album, The Great Divide was recorded under the direction of Timo Tolkki (Timo Tolkki's Avalon, Stratovarius), who also contributed to the songwriting process. The album will be released this October, but in the meantime, here is a sneak peek at the album cover!"
 
 
Sweet / Lynch - "In a recent interview, Michael Sweet of Stryper revealed the possible name of his new project with renowned guitarist George Lynch (George Lynch Fan Page, Dokken, Lynch Mob (Official), KXM) is "Sweet Lynch". The album also features bassist James LoMenzo (Megadeth, Black Label Society, White Lion) and drummer Brian Tichy (Whitesnake/David Coverdale, Foreigner, Billy Idol)!
We've heard the album, which will be released in early 2015, and let's just say you guys will be absolutely, 110% BLOWN AWAY! Michael and George have outdone themselves! First taste of music from the album is currently scheduled to appear in September and you will be able to hear how awesome it is yourselves then!"
