MOTHER ROAD is the brainchild of Austin, TX (USA) based rock singer Keith Slack and Berlin (Germany) based guitarist Chris Lyne.
Named after “The Mother Road”, another name for the US’ legendary, historic Route 66 highway, this international Hard Blues Rock band is impressively transferring the vintage sounds and the trademarks of this genre into the new decade. Founded in 2011 and based on mutual musical influences, Slack & Lyne promptly felt the chemistry between them was right and the song-writing process soon accelerated. In the meantime, the line-up was completed with keyboard player Alessandro Del Vecchio, drummer Zacky Tsoukas and bassist Frank Binke.
Guitarist Chris Lyne is well known for his astonishing work with his previous group Soul Doctor. His main influences include some of the greatest British guitar players such as Gary Moore, Jimmy Page, Paul Kossoff and John Sykes. American singer Keith Slack acted as frontman of the bands Steelhouse Lane and Michael Schenker Group (MSG), and also his own blues-influenced Hard Rock band Mudpie. Slack’s influences include a whole variety of styles and music from bands including Paul Rodgers, Led Zeppelin, The Black Crowes, King’s X and The Cult.
“Drive” is the band’s first full-length album and will be released on the group’s very own Road Songs label with the distributor AOR Heaven.
Line-up: Keith Slack – vocals, Chris Lyne – guitars, Zacky Tsoukas – drums, Frank Binke – bass, Alessandro Del Vecchio – hammond & piano

Italian rock band PAVIC is releasing their new video clip for the song “In Your Eyes” today which is taken from their recent album “Is War The Answer?” (Anteo/NVM).
Please share and spread this link around: http://youtu.be/BTNPtaNu1mQ
Here comes some background information on this clip from the band:
"In your eyes" means that you have to find your truth, your way and your answers inside yourself. There's no other better than yourself to find all the answers to your questions. For this video (the third taken from Is War The Answer?) we wanted to take a different approach and use an abstract story to tell the idea behind the song. Our video maker Alessandro Russotto suggested to contact Roberto Recchioni, writer for the horror comics series Dylan Dog, to write the story for the video. Roberto is a big fan of heavy rock music and horror movies. He liked our song and so he decided to combine the two and instantly we had the perfect concept for the video.
It took some research before we found the right place to shoot the video. Alessandro was looking for a car dismantling area for a more horror movie-like location. We found the right place at the suburbs of Rome. The owner of the area was more than excited to have the video shooting at his place.
The video was shot on a sunny but cold day in January. The weather was a big question mark, as we were afraid of possible rain. Fortunately everything went smoothly that day and we had a lot of fun with all the makeup and preparation needed to create zombies!
The message behind the story (even if it's made in a very abstract and dark way) is that you have to look inside yourself to see in a different way the things that surrounds you, even if you can't understand that. If you could change your mindset, your point of view, you could see everything in a different way and maybe you would understand that the truth is always in your eyes. So, all the meaning is that you should leave all your fear behind to take a step inside yourself. You would learn to take possess of your life.
We still have some promo CD's of this release available.
beim französischen Label Bad Reputation (Vertrieb: Cargo) erscheint am 25.04.2014 das neue Album der französischen Hardcore Punk/ Death/Metal/Blues-Band RED MOURNING. Es trägt den Namen „Where Stone & Water Meet“.

Produkt: Red Mourning – Where Stone & Water Meet
Label: Bad Reputation
RED was the MOURNING color of the Delta slaves who brought the blues
into this world...100 years later, RED MOURNING plays a unique kind of METAL, full of SLIDE-GUITAR BLUES and NO-SHIT HARDCORE. The band is brimming with EMOTION, both on stage and on this 3rd album, produced by FRANCIS CASTE (Bukowski, The Sticky Boys, The Arrs, Svart Crown).
RED MOURNING has toured France (incl. HELLFEST) and Belgium extensively, and is now back for more!
Red Mourning was born in Paris (France) in 2003, when pure luck brought four unlikely metalheads together. They quickly realized they saw music the same way. Whatever they played was going to be sincere, innovative, and most of all, a way to let the accumulated trauma of their lives explode on stage.
Together, they started roaming the Paris underground scene, with its share of fights, and even the occasional gunshot. The self-taught four-piece also hung out as much as possible at local sound-engineering schools, recording demo after demo. These experiments soon yielded a 3-track SP (2004), and a 6-track EP (2006), both today sold-out.
Gradually, the band developed a genuine personality. What was just four chunks of strong musical character was now turning into a well-honed war-machine. Each band-member brings his own personal influences to the mix: hardcore punk, Chicago blues, grunge, old- and new-school death metal… The result is a sound that is unique in today’s metal scene. How many other bands out there combine blast-beats, Blues harp, sludge, and vocal harmonies (to name just the most obvious elements)?
Red Mourning keep pushing their own boundaries, and devote heart and soul to their music. So it was only a matter of time before this creative discipline gave birth to “Time To Go”, the band’s first LP. Its lyrics are introspective and dark, dealing with being unable to escape your past, death, or life’s lack of meaning.
Red Mourning chose Francis Caste, France’s N°1 metal-expert, to handle the record’s production. They spent six long weeks locked up in his Paris studio to record Pregnant With Promises, the second album. The result sounds like it came straight out of a Delta swamp… After all, Red Mourning got their name from the slaves’ mourning color. The sound itself is best described as “moist”, and gives the tracks an oppressive and organic feel. The songs themselves combine groove with violence.The rhythmic foundation is technical without being pretentious. On top of that comes a big fat layer of aggressive and sometimes discordant riffing. Then, the distinctive vocals, with hardcore screams and vocal melodies often backed two, three, or even four times.
Naturally, the Red Mourning sound wouldn’t be complete without a few sharp guitar solos, and some wailing Blues harp. While very unusual in a metal context, the harmonica seems like an obvious choice here.
