You need neither an instruction manual nor a university education to love the Dead Daisies’ music. Their songs unerringly hit their listeners’ autonomic nervous system, immediately take root in their hearts and souls and force them to move along to the rhythm. “There are lots of very good reasons why this kind of rock n roll has never gone out of fashion,” band members David Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink), John Corabi (Motley Crue, Ratt), Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio), Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy) and Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner) agree. “Our songs are simply timeless, immortal, classic! That’s why working with The Dead Daisies is so much fun, and that s why the reaction is always phenomenal, no matter when and where this band turns up.”
With his keen instinct and clear vision, founder, guitarist and songwriter David Lowy has put together an amazing group of musicians that has caused a stir with different line-ups, generating a consistently high level of individual renown and outstanding artistic substance since 2012. While initially, Richard Fortus and Dizzy Reed of Guns N’ Roses, Rolling Stones members Darryl Jones and Bernard Fowler, as well as John Tempesta and Charley Drayton of The Cult, among others, were involved, Lowy has once more enlisted international stars for the recordings of the Dead Daisies’ upcoming third album, Make Some Noise. “For me as a vocalist, this kind of high calibre line-up is an absolute dream come true,” enthuses John Corabi. “When you work with the Dead Daisies, everybody is amazingly motivated to deliver top performances.” So their new release lives up to its programmatic title: it would be difficult to imagine a rock album that sounds more powerful, energetic and vibrant.more...
Make Some Noise celebrates the kind of classic rock n roll that has gone from strength to strength since the early 1970s and that sweaty clubs, hallowed (concert) halls, arenas and stadiums would be impossible to imagine without. Strong hooks, intense riffs, which have guitarist Doug Aldrich prove his outstanding qualities, supported by a rhythm section consisting of drums and bass that march forward without compromise plus Corabi’s charismatic vocals this album rocks from the first to the very last note. Cross references to renowned bands from the past feature just as much as highly contemporary sounds and trendsetting directives. A number such as Long Way To Go couldn’t have been delivered better by AC/DC. Mainline and Last Time I Saw The Sun bring to mind the likes of Aerosmith and Mr. Big. The title track Make Some Noise is nothing less than a self-confident, tongue-in-cheek rock statement that summarizes this album’s general direction and may be taken quite literally namely when a euphoric audience give way to their enthusiasm. Not forgetting the wonderful Song And A Prayer with its guitar licks and anthemic chorus reminiscent of Guns N Roses. Cross your heart: this is the kind of superb composition that the public has been waiting for since Paradise City.
