We are Twisted F*cking Sister!

The Twisted Sister movie ‘We are Twisted F*cking Sister!’ a documentary film by Andrew Horn to be released in Europe on January 29, 2016 via Monoduo Films. The film, length 137 minutes + over 2 hours bonus material will be available on VOD (iTunes & Vimeo on Demand) and as DVD (Amazon Europe and Monoduo Films Shop). The movie trailer can be viewed below.

How fitting that 2016 marks the release of the documentary film, “We Are Twisted F*cking Sister!” a documentary film by German filmmaker Andrew Horn, which recounts the untold story of Twisted Sister’s beginnings, at the same time that the band mounts their last ever tour, making their final farewell to performing after 40 years. As the band gears up for the big finish, the movie shows how it all began.

Once upon a time, they were the Grand Funk of Glam and the NY Dolls of Metal. Some considered Twisted Sister a joke, others called them the greatest bar band in the world. While the microcosm of Punk/New Wave was taking over NYC in the mid 70s – early 80s, Twisted Sister was battling their way to the top of a vast – and unique to it’s time – suburban, cover-band bar scene that surrounded NYC in a 100 mile radius, yet existed in a parallel universe. Guitarist, Jay Jay French, says, “the history of Twisted is really our 10 years clawing our way through the bar scene. It’s who we are, and it’s why we are, and why we do what we do.”

The film follows the band from their beginnings as a cross-dressing glam band playing 4 shows a night, 6 nights a week in New Jersey bowling alleys and Long Island beach bars, to the suburban mega-clubs of the late 70s/early 80s, to their bust-out appearance on the UK rock TV show, “The Tube”. Through it all, Twisted stood ready to do or die for the sake of “the show”, giving their all to the crowd, and demanding full attention in return. They refused to play the usual bar band role of “human juke box for drunk and horny teens” – you were going to be entertained whether you liked it or not.

Twisted Sister

They regaled their audiences with comedy rants, dragging them on stage for vomit inducing drinking games, engaging them in fits of disco record smashing and, at their most extreme, whipping them into club-destroying frenzy. The performances were low on style and heavy on the humour and attitude – but behind it all, always smart and full of self-awareness. Spinal Tap may have been clueless but Twisted Sister knew exactly what they were doing!
If you think you know them from their hit songs, the MTV videos and their massive stadium shows, this is the story of how they became that band – full of strange, and often hilarious, twists and turns. It’s about Rock ‘n Roll and the business of Rock ‘n Roll. It’s about perseverance and things blowing up in your face. It’s about finding yourself, finding your audience and doing literally anything, however wild, to connect with them. And even though we know how it ends, the roller coaster ride of getting there is what it’s all about. A mesmerizing, and wickedly funny story of a 10 year odyssey to overnight success.

Munroe's Thunder

Ex- Metal Church Vocalist Ronny Munroe has launched ‘Munroe’s Thunder‘ … Featuring: David Mark Pearce – Guitars; Justin Zych: Guitars; Rc Ciejek – Bass; and Rick Ward on Drums.

Ronnie says “Working on our new album ‘The Black Watch’ due for release Summer 2016! Teaser Clips coming soon! The dynamics of this band are beyond incredible and we look forward to bringing you something absolutely mind-blowing. I feel fortunate to be working with persons of utmost talent and drive who are wholeheartely dedicated in creating this masterpiece in the making! Rock On and thank you for your continued support! This one is already turning out to be an epic creation. We’re psyched!!! A big “Thank You” goes out to our Manager J-von Hughes for putting this band together, for recognizing our talent and for all your hard work, it’s greatly appreciated! You Rock! ..Horns up Metal Fans”

I.F.O.R.

It’s not that unusual, into the past and present music scene, that artists and musicians reunite themselves together for celebrating something special, and this exactly what unexpectedly happened over the last months in the north of Italy, where some of the most appreciated names of the national melodic rock scene proudly united their forces under the moniker of “I.F.O.R” (aka Italian Forces Of Rock).

The opportunity in this case came for a multitude of factors: tributing Melodicrock.it (the leading website in Italy for this kind of music) for its never-ending and precious support to the melodic rock world, honouring the infinite love of many artists for the fascinating melodic hard-rock and AOR music, and most of all praising the fundamental support of every single fan of this amazing art, ’cause fans and supporters represent with no doubts the real and unquestionable motor of this tiny but passionate scene around the globe.
Music biz tried non-stop, along the years, to silence big drums, loud guitars and powerful vocals, and caging them in order to exile the ancient power of rock music: but I.F.O.R. symbolize the umpteenth proof that nothing, and nobody, will never be able to stop the voices and killing the dreams of all the amazing rock lovers all over the world.
“We Still Rock”, do you?

VIVALDI METAL PROJECT

Pride & Joy Music is proud to announce the signing of the Vivaldi Metal Project.

The Vivaldi Metal Project is an all-star metal project conceived and created by keyboardist, arranger, composer and producer maestro Mistheria (Bruce Dickinson, Rob Rock, Roy Z, etc.) together with bassist, composer and co-producer Alberto Rigoni.

The aim of the project is to arrange and perform a metal version of Antonio Vivaldi’s legendary Baroque masterwork ‘The Four Seasons‘.

The duo already has started to work on this project in late 2013 together with a staff of  arrangers (D. Docker main lyricist as well, F. Dall’O’, F. Caruso, F. Lui, Gabriels, K. Kumagai, M. Mierzejewski, N. Waldo, P. Penksa, T. Varnagiris, Y. Androulakakis, Z. Koev) and since then gathered more than 70 musicians from over the world plus the ”Sinfonietta Consonus Orchestra” and the ”Academic Choir Manolov’ to take part in this mammoth project.

The recordings will soon be completed and the release is planned for late May 2016. More news on this will follow.

The cast includes performances by Rick Wakeman (YES), Mark Boals (Malmsteen / Ring of Fire), Edu Falaschi (Angra / Almah), Michael Lepond (SymphonyX), Fabio Lione (Rhapsody of Fire / Angra), Rob Rock (Impellitteri), Dani Loeble (Helloween), John Macaluso (ARK), Marco Sfogli (J. LaBrie), Andreas Passmark (Royal Hunt), Chris Caffery (Trans Siberian Orchestra / Savatage), Steve Di Giorgio (Testament), Atma Anur (T. MacAlpine, G. Howe), Tommy Denander (Radioactive / Toto), Mark Cross (Scorpions / Firewind), Sean Tibbetts (Kamelot), Mark Wood (Trans Siberian Orchestra), Roger Staffelbach (Artension), Anna Portalupi (Tarja Turunen), Milan Polak, Victor Smolski (Almanac) and many more.

Mistheria says: “It has been a big challenge for the project creators and for all the participants to re-arrange and to perform this classic masterpiece beloved by millions people all over the globe in the vein of metal music power. It took about 1.5 years to form a cast of top rock and metal singers and instrumentalists. And finally recordings now have been almost completed after a full year of working on arrangements by a strong international arrangers’ team from several countries.
