MY REALLY SHORT REVIEW OF AIRBOURNE’S “BLACK DOG BARKING”

Airbourne is not trying to re-invent the wheel and why should they when that wheel is made of great hard rock? Just like all of Airbourne’s previous CD’s, Black Dog Barking has a mean bite.

Black Dog Barking is available is now on Roadrunner Records.

Watch Airbourne’s video for Live It Up below.

Inspired by the likes of Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, AC/DC and Motorhead, Airbourne has been winning fans since 2003 with their high-energy, whiplash-inducing, workingman’s rock ‘n’ roll. Their first album Runnin’ Wild was named 2007′s ‘Album of the Year’ by SleazeRoxx.com, Best Debut Album at the 2008 Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards, and Spin said Runnin’ Wild, Airbourne’s debut, is a smorgasbord of sledgehammer riffs, crass sex puns, and boozy sing-alongs.”

Hailing from Warrnambool, a small drinking town on the southwestern coast of Victoria, Australia, Airbourne — vocalist/lead guitarist Joel O’Keeffe, drummer Ryan O’Keeffe, guitarist David Roads, and bassist Justin Street — has gained an immense following with their explosive live shows and main stage festival appearances including a headliner spot at Wacken 2011, Rock Am Ring/Park (Germany) and Download (UK).

SEBASTIAN BACH JOINS THE CAST OF ABC’S “SING YOUR FACE OFF”

SebastianBach ABC has signed judges, cast and a host for its new competition series Sing Your Face Off, and it’s quite a unique collection of famous names.

First, actor John Barrowman (Torchwood, Arrow) will host the show, where five celebrity contestants take on the identity of an iconic music performer each week.

The judges are former Saturday Night Live cast member Darrell Hammond and pop singer Debbie Gibson.

And the show’s contestants learning to perform the hits of famous music stars are ex-Skid Row frontman and heavy metal singer Sebastian Bach, comedian Jon Lovitz, Toronto Raptors player Landry Fields, teenage Disney Channel actress-singer China Anne McClain and former soap star Lisa Rinna.

Of all the performers above, fans are probably most surprised to see Barrowman listed. He may be best known in the U.S. for his roles on cult-favorite sci-fi shows, but he’s hosted and served as a presenter on several unscripted shows in the UK.

The six-episode Sing Your Face Off is produced by Endemol USA with Georgie Hurford-Jones (America’s Got Talent) as executive producer and based on a successful international format. There’s no air date yet, but the production seems to gearing up for a potential debut this summer.

METALLICA REPORTEDLY HAVE ‘ENOUGH’ SONGS FOR THEIR NEXT ALBUM

Metallica Gary Graff of Billboard reports:

“I want it done yesterday,” frontman James Hetfield tells Billboard about Metallica’s next album, “and (Orion Music Festival) and this movie is keeping us pretty busy at this point and it’s taking a lot of our time and effort. We’ve been touring some obscure places; I guess basically what we’re trying to do is pay for this movie, so the touring is keeping us from getting in there and finishing the record. Right now the focus is on the movie.”

That said, Hetfield adds that the quartet has at least made a start on a new album.

“Yeah, we got out into the room and jammed and we’ve come up with enough material for a record, for sure,” Hetfield says. “We’ve gone through maybe one-tenth of the material that’s on our riffs CDs. We’ve got enough for an album, we just haven’t had enough time to really focus on it and dial in and start whittling it into these masterpieces, hopefully.”

Bassist Robert Trujillo points out that “the work ethic is super, super strong, and that’s what takes us longer than other bands, because we’re sitting there and sometimes we’re really analyzing things. I mean, for every one lyric, Hetfield has, like three lyric possibilities. But I can tell you this; the grooves and the riffs that are already on the radar are really, really awesome. We’ve still got more riffs to go through and jam out and throw into the process, but we’re getting there, and we’ll have something great, hopefully, in the next year.”

JON BON JOVI DISCUSSES RICHIE SAMBORA LEAVING THE BAND, HINTS THAT HE’S STRUGGLING WITH SUBSTANCE ABUSE AGAIN

bonjoviband400 Radar Online reports:

Jon Bon Jovi is pretty frustrated with longtime band member Richie Sambora’s departure from Bon Jovi – but he isn’t afraid of outing his issues or saying that he is replaceable.

The 51-year-old rock star recently opened up about Sambora’s shocking departure from the legendary band, hinting that it had to do with substance abuse problems.

“It’s getting more and more difficult every day to not just sit here and say something… Because all I can say is this — it’s for personal reasons,” Jon explained to the London Evening Standard about Sambora, who went to rehab in 2011 for alcohol abuse. “He’s been through it before, fortunately for us the same guy who filled in last time was available this time.”

He continued to snub Sambora by comparing him to U2’s The Edge, who would not be so easy to substitute.

“Life goes on, so if someone chooses not to be here… unlike if this were, God forbid, The Edge, and he for some reason couldn’t make a U2 show, [then] it would be very difficult to just step in,” he said.

“You have a choice — you either figure it out, go and grow, not only survive but thrive. Or, you say, ‘I hate my brother and I’m gonna quit the band.’”

Also, in the interview, Bon Jovi slammed Justin Bieber, dubbing him “an a**hole” for showing up to his O2 arena concert in March 2013 two hours late.
