22nd February 2012

slam cartel



Following their much praised debut album, 'Handful Of Dreams', Slam Cartel are about to release a new single from the record, guitar-driven opener 'Wishing Eye', on 13th March. Three days later, on Friday 16th, the band will mark the release with a prestigious slot at the sold out Hammerfest IV in Prestatyn, Wales.

Can you imagine what Joy Division would have sounded like if they were born and bred in Seattle? Here's your answer, filled with hooks to conquer all radio waves and riffs to convince every rock fan. It's been said that, "It's the sort of music you can strip to, They sound like Heaven, They feel like God's burning a hole into your heart, They play like demons, and they sure smell like Rock 'n' Roll...."

'Handful Of Dreams', is produced by George de Angelis (who, as Trevor Horn's right hand man for many years, worked with Rod Stewart, Tina Turner and Pet Shop Boys) and was recorded at his Soniczoo Studios. Packed full of demon hooks, coruscating riffs, boss grooves, and rousing choruses, if the overall sound is somewhat reminiscent of legendary rock outfit, The Cult, you can also hear the shards and splinters of grandstanding influences, the Chilli Peppers, Guns n' Roses and the Foo Fighters.

Slam Cartel are Giles Van Lane (vocals), Marc Neudeck (bass), Tommy Hendriksen (guitar), Steve Campkin (drums), Adam Lee (keyboards, guitars) and principal songwriter, Terence Warville (guitar).

'Wishing Eye' will be released on 13th March through all digital platforms and Slam Cartel will announce more tour dates soon.

Slam Cartel: See them, hear them, believe them.


NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
