  THE DEBUT ALBUM FROM BLACK STATE HIGHWAY IS OUT ON 18TH AUGUST
23 June 2014





Black State Highway are a five-piece, multi-national, female-fronted hard rock band on a mission! Equal parts filthy blues riffs, monster rhythm and raw, but melodic hooks, these young guns have set a determined foot on the road to rock glory.

Formed at Brighton's Institute of Modern Music, the band includes Latvian singer Liva Steinberga (22), aided and abetted by guitarist Olie Trethewey (23), bassist Gordon Duncan (23), Jon Crampton (24) and drummer Harry Bland (22). The band have been honing their skills around London's gig circuit, tearing up venues like O2 Academy Islington, Big Red and the Intrepid Fox.

Within the grooves of this self-titled debut you'll hear shreds of their rock heroes AC/DC, Rage Against the Machine, Led Zeppelin, but it's their bone crunching riffs and bottle shattering vocals that set them apart from the rest of the pack.

With a respectful nod at the musical pedigree that influenced them, the band stamp their own authority on the scene by stepping outside the boundaries of mere classic rock traditions with their own original brand of heavy riff-based rock, evident on tracks like 'Conclusion', 'Tekkers' and the single 'Ain't Got Know'.

They may have picked up a few parking tickets along the way, but Black State Highway have set a first step on the road to glory.

Hear two tracks from the album as a taster:





The album is released on HNE Recordings and will be launched at the Alley Cat, Denmark St on 14th August

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

aerosmith

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'.
