“Anyone want to review the new Dead Daisies live album?” Hell yeah, I was straight onto this sucker.
To say that “The Daisies”, as they are affectionately known to their fans, are a supergroup is an understatement. Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner) – drums, David Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink) – guitars, John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, The Scream) – vocals, Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio) – guitars and Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake) – bass have plied their trade in such a plethora of top bands and have taken the best from all them and then ploughed them into a sound that is huge.
From the opener “Long Way to go” right to the final track “Midnight Moses” you have a live album worthy of the great 70’s and 80’s live opuses such as “Thin Lizzy- Live and Dangerous” or “The Scorpions – World Wide Live”. In other words, you feel like you are there in the audience and listening to a band at its absolute best.
Mixed by Anthony Fox (Aerosmith, Bad Company, Metallica, Santana) and mastered by Howie Weinberg the album just oozes with raw energy and balls out rock and roll.
Lead Singer John Corabi says of the album, “We’re extremely excited and proud of our new album ‘LIVE & LOUDER’!!! A lot of the fans have been writing to us and saying how much they LOVED our records but were even more blown away by the band live!!! So, this documents our last U.K./European tour, and also shows the world how truly loud and supportive The Dead Daisies fans are!!!! Thank you and Turn It Up!!!! ”
Whilst this is an album for the fans if you have never heard the band before you will not be disappointed. The well-crafted songs give each band member a chance to show their virtuosity. Doug Aldrich and David Lowry trade licks and solos that fit perfectly around the rhythm section that holds the band together so well.
Delving deeper into the track list, stand out tracks “Song and a Prayer”, “Something I Said” “Join Together” and “Without You and I” some up the album perfectly.. proper hard rock and roll, great choruses, amazing playing and thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.
Covers on the Album include “Helter Skelter” and “American Band” and are executed in true Daisies style making for a great live experience.
Released on May 19th, 2017 ‘LIVE & LOUDER’ will be released in a number of different, exciting formats. Again, the band listened to what the fans wanted and added a spectacular vinyl as well as a limited-edition box set that features, among other cool trinkets, an exclusive 7” vinyl single recorded at The Zoo at Planet Rock Radio’s highly coveted London fan-only gig in November 2016.
So come and “Join Together with the Band” .. you will not regret it.
