RED DRAGON CARTEL: THE DEBUT ALBUM
Featuring guest appearances from Robin Zander, Paul Di'Anno, Rex Brown, Todd Kearns, Brent Fitz, Scott Reeder, Maria Brink and Jeremy Spencer.
The newest band ready to take aim at the creative void in the hard rock world, Red Dragon Cartel, are set to release their debut album via Frontiers Records. The self-titled debut by the band made up of guitar legend Jake E Lee, bassist Ronnie Mancuso, singer D.J. Smith and drummer Jonas Fairley is set for release on January 27th 2014 in the UK and on the following day in the US. Jake E Lee is best known for his work in Badlands and as guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne on Bark at the Moonand The 'Ultimate Sin' albums.
Red Dragon Cartel also features various guest appearances from some of music's most notable faces including legendary Cheap Trick vocalist Robin Zander, original Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Di'Anno, Kill Devil Hill/Pantera bassist Rex Brown, Slash's Conspirators Todd Kearns and Brent Fitz and In This Moment front woman Maria Brink.
The album was produced by Ronnie Mancuso and Jake E Lee and was executive produced, mixed and mastered by Kevin Churko (In This Moment, Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch).
From the opening riff of 'Deceived' to final sustained piano chord of 'Exquisite Tenderness', it is clear Red Dragon Cartel has created an album that stands amongst some of the greatest hard rock albums of all time. Infectious songs such as 'Shout It Out', 'Wasted' and 'Slave' showcase the band's ability to write memorable hooks and vocal melodies.
Robin Zander of Cheap Trick lends his voice to the track 'Feeder' and a lyric video for the song can be seen here.
Maria Brink of In This Moment lends her unique vocals to the track 'Big Mouth'. Paul Di'Anno and Sass Jordan also lend their talents to the band's debut. Jake E Lee's trademark playing style instantly shines through and picks up right where he left off.
The album will be available for pre-order on Amazon soon. The album can be pre-ordered from iTunes and comes with an instant download of 'Deceived'.
