FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

KILLER BEE REKINDLE THE MAGIC OF ‘70s STYLE ROCK WITH ‘EYE IN THE SKY’ RELEASE OUT NOW


Killer Bee are back with a new long awaited album - ‘Eye in the Sky’ - out now.  It has been over two years since their last release, and the wait has proven to be worth it, as this new record is quintessential Killer Bee.  The writing team of Rönnblom / Frank has done it again, as they deliver their well-honed 70´s style of rock - a la Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and the Scorpions.

Well known for their back to basic raw sound, Killer Bee have not swayed from their trademark style.  And all the expected ingredients are included - hard and heavy riffs, signature vocals, and of course, the classic Hammond sound, which can be sampled via the links below:

Killer Bee - "Get On Board" (Official Music Video) https://youtu.be/0egtw6luue4

“’Get on Board’ went through a few vocal arrangements before I got the feel I wanted,” explains singer/producer Brian “Bee” Frank. “Due to the length of pauses in the recording process I was able to take a step back and look at things from different perspectives. Really glad I had that time to give the song the all it deserved.” And Frank also discussed the song’s video - “Being from Canada I did not really grasp what the cold war meant, but after living in Sweden for 26 years one starts to realize how very close the threat at the time was. In the making of this video we did it at an old abandoned cold war era - first strike airforce base. The base was an array of runways interacting with each other in literally the middle of nowhere. It was an experience for me to try and imagine how it could have been...it made me reflect on my first weeks here in 1990. We were driving in town and instead of a Deer Crossing sign I saw Tank Crossing signs (lol). Wow what a culture shock for a guy like me from good ole safe Toronto, Canada.”


Since the early ‘90s, the Bees have been delivering the sting…and now the hive has let the swarm loose!
The last couple of years have not been without trials and tribulations though - member changes, injuries, and production hold-ups have made this era a roller coaster ride for the band.
However, the band managed to persevere, as 2015 saw Killer Bee embark on an extensive US tour (covering over 40 cities in no less than 35 states), and the future is only looking brighter.

Radio programmers worldwide have begun to take notice, as Killer Bee are receiving positive responses to their music - climbing on playlists everywhere.
And alongside the new release, Killer Bee are currently in the planning stages for touring both Europe and North America.

Speaking about highlights from the recording sessions, Brian "Bee” Frank the lead singer and producer of the new record
states, “‘Shout It Out’ is the ultimate 70´s feel with the screaming Jon Lord/Hammond playing by Denny DeMarchi. I remember when he was recording that solo. One take and it was done. At the end Denny said, ‘I can do it better,’ I said ‘No! It´s done!’ What a great moment. During the 90´s, Anders and I had a writing system...he played I sang. A song done normally it took no more than 30 minutes to get a song done. The last three albums have had a slightly different approach but on the writing of ‘The Fight,’ it was a magical moment. Back to the old school formula. 15 minutes.”

So catch a buzz and feel the sting…Killer Bee are BACK! Join the swarm!

CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE Interview With FRANKIE BANALI Of QUIET RIOT

CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE Interview With FRANKIE BANALI Of QUIET RIOT

QUIET RIOT was not the first band that got me into heavy metal. I was already well entrenched in the power and the glory of bands like Sabbath, Saxon, and Dio. But for an impressionable youth the constant nagging from the "cool" kids at school about how lame metal was became very bothersome. Cliched white sneaker wearing future lawyers were constantly picking on me and my metal head friends. QUIET RIOT one day came on the radio and changed all that. Like an asteroid hitting the dinosaurs they wiped away all the so called un coolness about metal and made it mainstream. Suddenly all the jocks were "banging" their heads to songs like "Metal Health", And "slick Black Cadillac". So years later after the heavy smoke has cleared I got the chance to speak with one of the key architects of QUIET RIOT, Mr. Frankie Banali. They are about to release ROAD RAGE on Frontiers Records and it so…

Beast In Black Beserker Album Review

Beast In Black
This is a band that offers you a perfect power metal album. The sound is a sonic picasso of indulgent riffs and screams. This album is full of a master class in perfect power metal. The strength of this band is unmatched. Their lyrics are straight through the heart and the production value is spot on. 

Here is a band that you will need to watch for 2018. They are about to make a huge impact on the metal scene.

Babylon A.D. Interview

Babylon A.D. is about to release a new album on Frontiers records.REVOLUTION HIGHWAY will be released on November 10th on Frontiers Records. The Band, still with original members, will be celebrating 30 years. The songs on this album are undeniable and certifiable hard rock gems. The band has never sounded better or tighter. This is pure American rock and roll. Hands down one of the best albums for 2017. Check out their new album.  10/10 wolf howls Below is an earlier interview I did with guitarist Ron Freschi.





Interview Ron Freschi Babylon A.d./ Syrym "We are discussing  recording a new album"
Back in the day when MTV actually played music videos, Babylon A.D. was one of the best hard rock bands to tear across the television screen. The songs were filled with sex and life and just a pure rock and roll sense that few bands actually capture. Their  melodic brand of style was soon eclipsed by grunge and the fickle whims of the recording industry, and the rest is history. But they n…
