If you don’t already have it, pick up their EP, Live Evil. “‘Live Evil’ is “a collection of songs based on our experiences in the last two years, covering everything from a close friend’s imprisonment for a victim-less crime to the realization of humanity’s demise to the contrast between good and evil and life and death,” says drummer Trevor Cobb.

If there’s anything we would like people to take away from the record, it’s that you should be your own person, do what makes you happy, be aware of your world and be real. We have the power to control our own destiny. Together, we are more powerful than any world leader.”

We were glad we braved the 4 hour traffic filled trek to Sacramento last night to catch the Monster Energy Outbreak Rock Tour. After sitting in traffic for so long, it was great to arrive at the Ace of Spades for a night of heavy music to release all that pent up frustration! The night started right off with a fierce set by Sworn In from Chicago. Holy shit, these guys blew us away!

This was the first time I heard of Sworn In and after just a few minutes of hitting the stage, I was converted from a newbie to an absolute die-hard lover. I am bummed that it has taken me so long to find out about this band, but I am now grateful. They have a ferociously heavy sound that brought the crowd to peak levels within minutes of starting.  I am not going to do them the injustice of trying to describe them as a certain genre or sub-genre, they are just pure energy heavy rock with metal influences that you have to hear. Hands down, one of the best sets from an opening band that I have seen in a long time.  With songs like Snake Eyes and Dead Soul, they are going to be your new Go To band on your playlist.

Check out the photos from our Rockin Ryan of their set:

There are still some dates left out on the tour, so make sure to get out and see them!

dellacoma

We all know the amazing vocals of Dellacoma Rio, former frontman of Australian Hard Rock Band, Sunset Riot and now you can once again enjoy his signature vocals with his new band, Dellacoma. Dellacoma is set to release their debut full length album, South of Everything next year. 2015 definitely promises to be a busy year as Rio explains, “2015 will see the release of our debut full length album titled “South of Everything” This is exciting for me because I’ve never released a full length record before! We will be releasing a couple of videos and of course, more touring!

I know you are ready for some straight up rock n roll and Dellacoma is ready to deliver. They are premiering their new song, My Kinda Woman which is off their upcoming album. Rio comments on the song, “I like to think of ‘My Kinda Woman’ as a masculine love song. It’s straight up and in your face, full of passion and emotion as well as desire. The inspiration is my beautiful wife, we’ve been together 3 and a half years but I still am blown away by her. She’s quite an incredible woman.”  Hold on tight and take a listen to My Kinda Woman:

 

I love the swirling guitars and powerful vocals that deliver a sultry vibe. I can’t wait to hear more from them and hopefully get to see them soon. We asked Rio about any upcoming shows and he mentions, “At the moment I am doing a few solo band shows as well as some solo acoustic here in Australia. We will be taking to the road hopefully by spring of 2015 to coincide with the release of ‘South of Everything

Check out a video that Rockin Ryan created with live footage of their set to their song, Filthy:

These four guys have the energy of an army packed in them and are determined to get the crowd on their feet and having a good time which isn’t too hard because their music is absolutely infectious and you can’t stand still. Thunderwood has quite a stage presence that he doesn’t limit to just the stage, as he takes himself as he walks on the bar counters and even propels himself onto the crowd and took his crowd surfing skills to the back of the house insuring everyone was as energized as themselves. Another highlight of their set was when they performed a hellacious cover of AC/DC’s Dirty Deeds. Check out a slideshow of Rockin’ Ryan’s photos from their se earlier this year at the Boardwalk in Orangevalet:
