  1. I haven’t listened to any of his music in years, but this guy can really sing. It’s great that he is doing this.

    Looking forward to hearing this! The dtuff he did with Vinney was really good along with his own band. Great year for Metal!!!!

    MARK SLAUGHTER COMES UP TO ME ONE DAY WHEN I’M WALKING DOWN THE STREET MINDING…………
    no just kidding. Ironically an off-shoot of a KISS off-shoot. SLAUGHTER was cool and Mark is doing positive things so good for him. SLAUGHTER reminded me of DOKKEN and that would have been a great twin bill. What is this? He is actually NOT writing a book. Good God!

    Nice – this news is only about 3-5 months old. I had purchased this track from Amazon.com way back in Feb. and heard about this news from several other websites. You all a little slow and late on this one.
    But on the other hand, check out the tune….its not too bad, parallel to Slaughter’s sound, but a little different as Mark makes it his own. His vocals are improving as he gets older.

    • You might want to tell Mark’s camp that since they issued the press release we took it from yesterday. I also had him on my radio show to promote this a couple months ago. Perhaps they are trying to second chance to spark interest?

    • Well Nobycane,

      I am sure your music site posted this story as soon as it was breaking news. Oh yeah, you don’t have one.

      I just love armchair music writers, you’re all so omniscient, helpful and kind-LOL!

    Saw Slaughter open for Kiss in 1990 a few times. Met the band outside the venue at one show and they were very nice. However, Mark goes well off key live. It was painful. That’s when I realized that they were a studio band…

  6. Thɑnhks for sharing your thoughts about Frauen. Regaгԁs

  7. Hey Eddie. You should convince Mark Slaughter to put out a solo album. Tom Keifer and Jeff Labar both put out solo albums and they both kick ass. Long live metal.
