W.A.S.P. has announced The 7 Savage: 1984-1992 deluxe 8LP box set from its “Capitol Years,” with studio album half-speed mastering, LP of bonus tracks, 60-page book, posters and numbered certificate. The 7 Savage: 1984-1992 will be released October 27th on Madfish and is strictly limited to 2000 copies worldwide.

Currently on break from the 40 Years Live world tour and sounding better than ever, W.A.S.P. is one of the most consistent and reliable forces in rock music — unstoppable and unassailable, like a heavy metal juggernaut sent back in time from a long-distant galaxy. Frontman Blackie Lawless is undoubtedly one of rock’s everlasting figures — someone whose attitude and vision changed the musical landscape around him, in the process bearing fruit to some of the biggest anthems of their time.

Lawless comments, “It’s great to see this collection of records be re-released with this detail. For the original recordings to have a new light shown on them with expanded notes and additional photography is special for me, and will be for all those that hold these albums in a special place in their hearts and times in their lives.”

W.A.S.P.’s first five studio albums — W.A.S.P.The Last CommandInside The Electric CircusThe Headless Children and The Crimson Idol — contributed enough on their own for the Lawless-fronted outfit to be considered one of the greatest rock bands of all-time. Those LPs are all presented in this set, mastered half-speed at Air Studios, London for a superior, sharper, more direct and engaging sound.

Packaged within a deluxe red leatherette effect double slipcase, The 7 Savage: 1984-1992 is completed on vinyl with two more LPs: 1987’s Live… In The Raw and new compilation Bonus Tracks & B-Sides featuring the controversial breakthrough anthem Animal (F**k Like a Beast).

Compiled with the full cooperation of Lawless, the box set also includes a 60-page book with exclusive and rare pictures from legendary metal photographers (including Ross HalfinTony MottramDavid Plastik and Paul Natkin),along with extensive liner notes from Amit Sharma (Kerrang!Planet Rock). Also included is an exclusive Lawless poster, plus an individually numbered circular saw shaped certificate.

Few bands in the history of rock and roll have ever incited the love, the hate, the raw emotional effect W.A.S.P. has had on the world. From the very beginning, in the small venues of Los Angeles, and later to the numerous countries worldwide that banned these winged assassins from performing live, the band’s unique style of shock and rock caused religious organizations, local city councils, parliaments, and the Washington D.C. senate to hold hearings in an effort to bar this group from selling records and trashing stages everywhere they played.

Lawless has led W.A.S.P. as its lead vocalist and primary songwriter since its beginning. His unique brand of visual, social and political comment took the group to worldwide heights and sold millions of records alongside a legacy of sold-out shows across the globe for four decades.

Nights With Alice Cooper, the long-running radio show hosted by legendary rocker Alice Cooper, will come to an end next month. The final weekday show will be delivered on September 8th.

Nights With Alice Cooper debuted in January 2004 at 93.3 KDKB Phoenix before moving to sister Classic Rock 100.7 KSLX following KDKB‘s 2014 flip to Alternative.

Among the other stations carrying the show are KGGO Des Moines, WMMQLansing, KOZZ Reno, WEZX Scranton and KLPX Tucson, in addition to stations in Australia and the United Kingdom.

United Stations EVP/Programming Andy Denemark confirmed the end of the show to Radio+Television Business Report.

The decision to end the popular program is reportedly linked to the sale of United Stations Radio Network to GeminiXIII, with new management planning to take the programming in a different direction.

A source told Radio+Television Business Report that Cooper is not retiring or quitting radio and that the decision to end the show was forced by a change in direction by the management of United Stations Radio Network.

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the newest studio album from Lynch Mob, Babylon. The band is known for their high energy, guitar driven, hard rock vibe, while featuring elements of classic rock, blues, and metal, with a propensity for improvisation. Joining revered guitarist and band founder George Lynch (The End Machine, The Banishment, ex-Dokken) for this newest Lynch Mob album are vocalist Gabriel Colón, bassist Jaron Gulino (Tantric, Heavens Edge), and drummer Jimmy D’anda (ex-Bulletboys).  Pre-order/save, Babylon, here, and watch the video for the first single, Time After Time, below.

“There’s been so many iterations of Lynch Mob since the first line-up in 1989 of Oni Logan, Mick Brown, Anthony Esposito, and myself. Putting Lynch Mob together was just an extension of what I’d always strived for in a band: the best possible musicians, chemistry, and brotherhood. My bands have not only been my best friends, but also family. When we come up together and work hard and struggle together, we create a bond that lasts a lifetime. I think that’s the thing I love the most about my musical journey…creating music in the studio, stepping on stage, and sharing that bond with my friends through music. Thank you to everyone who has been in my band. I really feel it’s ours”, says Lynch.
New Jersey’s own Jaron Gulino brings the east coast attitude and energy to Lynch Mob. He has prospered in a long career as the bassist in a variety of bands, most notably post-grunge rock band Tantric. Gulino achieved chart topping success with multiple releases from Tantric, as well as performing on many high profile tours and events with numerous other acts. He is also currently the bassist for Philadelphia hard rockers Heavens Edge. 
His bandmate and partner in crime in the rhythm section is none other than original Bulletboys drummer Jimmy D’anda, who is known for his ability to bring a fantastic element of groove while maintaining the powerful hard rock vibe of Lynch Mob. 
Gabriel Colón is a Puerto Rican singer who started his career with a band called Fast Taker. Since then, he has showcased his wide range of vocal talent with many rock acts including Gothic Knights, Culprit, White Wizzard, and Rowan Robertson. Gabriel is a true talent and a great fit to fill the shoes of his extremely talented predecessors in Lynch Mob. 

Babylon tracklisting:

1. Erase
2. Time After Time
3. Caught Up
4. I’m Ready
5. How You Fall
6. Million Miles Away
7. Let It Go
8. Fire Master
9. The Synner
10. Babylon

Lynch Mob was formed in 1989 after George Lynch parted ways with his former band Dokken. Their debut release Wicked Sensation was met with critical and fan acclaim and went on to be certified gold in sales by the RIAA. The band would continue on through the years with a cast of talented players joining Lynch throughout their musical journey over the course of six more studio albums. Babylon is Lynch Mob’s eighth studio album overall and the first since 2017’s The Brotherhood.

Can the music of AC/DC make you happier, more athletic, fight military battles or cure cancer? AC/DC Beyond The Thunder, the podcast that delves deep into the essence of the iconic Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame band, has ventured to the hallowed halls of Harvard University for a groundbreaking exploration at one of the oldest and most prestigious Ivy League institutions in the United States.

This special Back To School edition unarchives a sit down with the distinguished Dr. Mark Jude Tramos, MD PhD, former director of the Institute For Music & Brain Science, Department of Neurology, Harvard Medical School and Mass General HospitalDr. Tramos, a luminary renowned for his pioneering research and exceptional patient care, and rated as best doctors in America for seven consecutive years for his work at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, offers a riveting perspective on the intersection of AC/DC‘s music and the human brain.

“AC/DC’s probably caused as much release of endorphins and dopamine in key parts of the brain as any band all time,” states Tramos, dispelling the notion that the band’s music is simple. He elucidates, “It’s effective, and it’s very, very, very hard to do. Because it looks easy, it’s actually very hard and quite complex.”

The episode unveils remarkable anecdotes about AC/DC’s music, including its purported role in cancer treatment, enhancing surgical precision, and calming Alzheimer’s patients through music therapy. Dr. Tramos, a virtuoso in both music and neuroscience, illuminates the gamut of emotional connections forged by AC/DC’s compositions. From Hall Of Fame pitcher Trevor Hoffman’s use of Hells Bells to psych up the crowd, to General Manuel Noriega enduring AC/DC’s music as psychological warfare, the influence reverberates across diverse contexts.

Tramos, whose career resumed at UCLA’s Institute for Music and Brain Science, professor in the Neurology Department of the David Geffen School Of Medicine and in the Herb Alpert School of Music, also does a deep dive into one of AC/DC’s most popular tracks, You Shook Me All Night Long, and the band’s use of the plagal cadence, a device more commonly associated with ecclesiastical music. This technique evokes unexpected emotional responses in millions of global fans, transcending cultural boundaries.

AC/DC Beyond The Thunder has consistently delivered compelling and thought-provoking conversations with notable guests, and this episode promises to be no exception. With its combination of lively banter, exclusive stories, and insider knowledge, the podcast has become a must-listen for fans craving a deeper understanding of the powerhouse that is AC/DC.

Fueled by listener donations, AC/DC Beyond The Thunder is a non-profit organization, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the Make-A-Wish and Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Foundations.

AC/DC Beyond The Thunder podcast is now available for streaming on all platforms and at BeyondtheThunder.com.

Original Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden has died at the age of 72.

Marsden‘s passing was confirmed by his family in a social media post earlier today (August 25th), writing: “On behalf of his family, it is with deep sadness we announce the death of Bernie Marsden. Bernie died peacefully on Thursday evening with his wife, Fran, and daughters, Charlotte and Olivia, by his side.

Bernie never lost his passion for music, writing and recording new songs until the end.”

Whitesnake singer David Coverdale shared a tribute to his former bandmate on social media.

“I’ve just woken up to the awful news that my old friend and former Snake Bernie Marsden has passed,” he wrote. “My sincere thoughts and prayers to his beloved family, friends and fans. A genuinely funny, gifted man, whom I was honored to know and share a stage with.”

Marsden was one of the U.K.’s foremost rock and blues guitarists, famous for his time in professional bands since 1972 and a founding member of one of the biggest rock acts of all time, the mighty Whitesnake.

But there was a lot more to this man, from his first band UFO to treading the boards of the National Theatre in London, on stage with Ringo Starr in Monaco, playing the Beacon Theatre in New York with The Allman Brothers Band, writing and playing with Joe Bonamassa and Motörhead.

His long-term friendships with so many top names in the guitar business, Billy GibbonsSteve LukatherWarren Haynes, as well as rejoining the new Whitesnake lineup of recent years and a solo career kept him both on the road and in the studio. He became interested in guitars as a teenager watching The Beatles, his fascination continued to his final days. Bernie also developed one of the most unique and expansive private guitar collections in the world.

At a rough guesstimate, Marsden’s name appears on a hundred albums — maybe more. In addition to a long-running solo career, the Buckinghamshire-born guitarist had been a recording musician since the early 1970s via membership of such groups as WhitesnakeUFOWild TurkeyBabe RuthPaice Ashton & LordCozy Powell’s HammerAlaskaM3 and many more. Though there’s a tendency to pigeonhole him as a blues-rock guitarist, each of Marsden’s acts had its own individual flavor.

Mardsen released his “inspiration” series album, Chess, on November 26th, 2021, read more details about the album, here.
