In concert with f.y.e., BLABBERMOUTH.NET is pleased to continue its series of guest posts written by FOZZY's Chris Jericho. Join us again in welcoming Chris with his personal take on a few heavy releases.FOZZY's new album, "Do You Wanna Start A War", debuted at position No. 54 on the Billboard 200 chart. The CD, which was produced by FOZZY guitarist Rich Ward, was released on July 22 via Century Media. MASTODON - "Remission" "I'm really digging the reissue album from one of the best, weirdest bands in the world today! I hosted the Metal Hammer Awards a few years ago, and between Brent Hinds walking onstage as his drunk redneck cousin alter ego and Brann Dailor's 'Two Time Grammy Award Loser' t-shirt, it was quite the night!"
DRAGONFORCE - "Maximum Overload" "Do you like it hard and fast? Like REALLY fast? Then DRAGONFORCE is the band for you!! My boy Herman Li and his crew play the fastest guitar solos I've eeevvveeerrr heard in my 30 years of listening to metal!"
ACCEPT - "Blind Rage" "Has there been another hard rock band with as big of a late career resurgence as ACCEPT? From 'Blood Of The Nations' to 'Stalingrad' to 'Blind Rage', their releases over the last 5 years just keep getting better and heavier! Wolf Hoffmann and his gang have struck gold... or should I say metal... yet again!!"
ILL NINO - "Till Death, La Familia" "FOZZY played only one show with ILL NINO in Frankfurt, Germany a few years ago, but it's a gig I'll never forget. NINO were on fire that night and they continue to burn on this album!" DEMON HUNTER - "Extremist" "It's been awhile since we've seen a great band with Christian overtones, but DEMON HUNTER has changed that. Chunky riffs and thought provoking lyrics have made this album one to worship!
"That's all for this month. Be sure to catch my band FOZZY out on tour now!" Pick up any of the selections above at your local f.y.e. store or online.
