Filmmaker Jimmy Kay had this to say about the project," In this documentary, the viewer gets to watch  the band travel in the first person from city to city, playing club and  festivals shows. It  captures the brotherhood, the continuation of Riot  and  bridges the two entities together (Riot and Riot V). The documentary also aims to explain the Riot  story and legacy. "
 
Giles Lavery co-producer concluded,"The story of Riot is one of the most unique and inspiring in the history of hard rock and heavy metal, the story has many twists and turns along the way, but the songs were and are always at forefront as some of the best in hard rock and heavy metal."
 
RIOT V's  debut "Unleash The Fire", was released in October 2014 . The CD marked the first release from RIOT without the late, great founding guitarist Mark Reale, who passed away in  2012 due to complications of Crohn's disease . Riot V was encouraged  by father of  Mark  Reale to forge ahead in his honor.
 
RIOT V is working on the follow-up to "Unleash The Fire" and preparing for live dates later in 2017.

RIOT V Guitarist Mike Flyntz makes FAITH AND FIRE Unreleased Demos Available


RIOT V Guitarist Mike Flyntz makes FAITH AND FIRE unreleased demos available, along with signed CD's of debut album:

Mike Flyntz of legendary U.S. metal band RIOT has made available online the original demos of FAITH AND FIRE, the project formed with ex-RIOT Vocalist Tony Moore plus bassist Danny Miranda and drummer John Micelli,  these 12 songs include one previously unreleased track "Ann's Room" which never made the final release.

Says Mike: "Faith and Fire was created when Danny Miranda and I decided to write and record as a project. Paul Orofino planted the seed in my head when he was working on the Westworld records with Mark Reale. I immediately knew I wanted to track down Tony Moore and have him sing since I was always a big fan of his and it was a long time since he released anything publicly. Danny suggested we use John Micelli on drums from Meat Loaf. We started writing in 2002 and didn't release the record until 2006. I think the record is a nice combination of writing styles of Danny and I. Since we didn't have a budget prior I funded the record myself,  'Ann's Room' is a tune that never got released. It's a nice departure from the rest of the album."

Faith And Fire - The Demos , plus the debut album 'Accelerator' are available here: https://mikeflyntz.bandcamp.com/

Fans who purchase the physical signed CD get a free download of the demo tracks.

RIOT V "Unleash The Fire" Album Announced from SPV

Artist: 
 
The remaining members of legendary metal pioneers RIOT are back and are ready to unleash the follow up to 2011’s reunion record ‘Immortal Soul’. They are ready to unleash music in the great RIOT tradition that the fans come to know and love. RIOT V is ready to ‘UNLEASH THE FIRE!’
 
This marks the first release from the band without the late great founding guitarist Mark Reale who passed away in early 2012 and was limited on his participation on Immortal Soul because of his health issues. The band was encouraged at the request of Mark and the Reale estate to forge ahead in his honor and will dedicate this new offering to him. The album promises to please fans of the ‘Thundersteel’ era of RIOT as main song writer and long time Reale music collaborator Don Van Stavern does much of the writing as he did on ‘Thundersteel’ and ‘The Privilege of Power’. Don is joined by long time RIOT band mate, song writer and Reales guitar partner of over 20 years Mike Flyntz to create what they feel is something they are proud to call a RIOT record and Reale would have thought that as well. RIOT has a tumultuous history of member, label and management changes throughout the bands 30 plus year career but one things for sure, a bands longevity is through good music and if this new record is any proof, they will be around for years to come.
 
RIOT, like Johnny, are back again! Through the storm of lifes obsticles the guys are joined by powerhouse vocalist extraordinaire Todd Michael Hall (Burning Starr, Reverence), Frank Gilchriest (Virgin Steele, Riot’s Army of One) and former Mike Flyntz guitar student and resident shredder Nick Lee and are ready to raise the flag in honor of the RIOT legacy of music and our fallen band mates and the fans who have been demanding RIOT for years. This new onslaught headlined sold out shows in Germany, Greece, Spain and Italy and headlined the prestigious festivals Metal Assault and Metal Apocalypse early this year with rave reviews and festivals� including Bang Your Head with Twisted Sister and Anthrax, Metal Days with Megadeth and Volbeat and they headlined the Headbangers Open Air with bands including Warlord and Anvil and top it off with the headlining performance on next years Keep It True 2015 Festival which is already sold-out!
 
 
The new record is slated for an October 22nd release in Scandinavia, an October 24th release in Germany, an October 27th release in Europe and an October 28th release in the US and Canada via SPV/Steamhammer. The album will be available as a digipak version with one bonus tack, a double gatefold coloured vinyl version also with one bonus track, as a standard version and download.
 
RIOT are consistantly on radio and metal charts worldwide, as well as being a part of New York Citys Top 20 most influencial metal bands and numerous mentions on VH1’s That Metal Show with Eddie Trunk and staff sighting RIOT as one of the inovaters of Metal music in America and beyond! The new CD promises to be a true successor to the legacy of ‘Thundersteel’, ‘The Privilege of Power’ and “Immortal Soul”. RIOT V truely are Metal Soldiers and will keep marching and fighting the good fight to bring you the music you’ve come to know, love and expect.
