Lynch Mob‘s new album ‘The Brotherhood‘ is now available for pre-order via Rat Pak Records.

Produced by Chris “The Wizard” Collier (Lynch Mob; Flotsam And Jetsam; Prong; KXM), ‘The Brotherhood‘ features eleven brand new hard rock tracks from Lynch Mob. This album will surely resonate with long time fans of the band, as well as those longing for that good ol’ hard rock sound and feel. ‘The Brotherhood‘ highlights the unique pairing of Oni Logan and George Lynch, and along with Sean McNabb (bass) and Jimmy D’Anda (drums), the band has created a solid offering from start to finish. From the heavy guitar riffs of the opening track ‘Main Offender‘ to the melodic album finale ‘Miles Away‘, Lynch Mob have once again proven they remain on top of their game and at the top of their genre!

On the subject of Lynch Mob’s new record, Oni Logan comments, “After doing quite a few miles together with this latest line-up of Sean McNabb and Jimmy D’Anda, we consider ourselves a pack of wolves, and we came up with the name ‘The Brotherhood‘ for the title of the next Lynch Mob album. It’s got more of an adventurous sound in part and maybe a darker, colder sound to it. We are always willing to go farther. We come from the early 90’s and it’s when we released the first Lynch Mob album which set a sound and course for us. Here we are 27 years later, George and I are still able to keep on stretching. As a player, as a writer, that is very important to us. Otherwise we would be fooling ourselves and fooling you”.

George Lynch adds, “We wrote this album as a band and the name of the record reflects what the band is about, and what all my bands have been about since I’ve been a kid. This is my second family. These are my brothers. You go through a lot together and have a lot of experiences together. And that then becomes a part of the music.

Official release date for “The Brotherhood” is Friday September 08, 2017.

Scatterbrain‘ is the all new sophomore release from the super-group KXM comprised of drummer Ray Luzier (KoRn), guitarist George Lynch (Lynch Mob) and King’s X front man dUg Pinnick and is the follow up album to their highly successful 2014 self-titled debut release which landed at #31 on the Billboard Top 200.

Scatterbrain‘ features 13 brand new tracks and was recorded at the Steakhouse Studio in North Hollywood California where the band once again tapped Chris “The Wizard” Collier (Flotsam & Jetsam/Prong/Last In Line) to engineer the new effort.

From the infectious riff of the album opener ‘Scatterbrain‘ to the outro of ‘AngelKXM have created something truly special and musically diverse. Songs like “Breakout‘, ‘Calypso‘, and ‘True Deceivers‘ are sonically different from each other taking the listener on a musical journey.  Scatterbrain is thematically a darker record than the debut. The album builds upon the developed KXM rock sound but this time includes some different dynamics drawing inspiration from prog, ska, punk and metal. Through it all, it remains undeniably KXM.

Speaking about the recording process for KXM’s new record, vocalist dUg Pinnick comments, “We wrote all the songs right on the spot and immediately recorded them, everyone doing his part and no one telling the other one what or how to play, just like the previous album!”.  Drummer Ray Luzier adds “We wanted to use the same formula as the 1st KXM record…book studio time, come in fresh every day with a new idea, run with it and not over think anything” .

Basically it was “Record-topia”, we showed up in the studio, camped out with a bunch of gear and let the tape roll!” states guitarist George Lynch.Just like the first album, no pre-production, no rehearsal, no pre-written songs, every song was written as a product of an in-studio jam session!

On the topic of the musical direction and overall vibe of the new album Ray recently told Modern Drummer Magazine; “It’s a darker record than the first one, it’s really heavy and it’s very soulful with dUg’s voice leading the way“. Ray further describes the direction of the new album, “There is some straight ahead rock, bits of prog, ska and tons of dynamics, there is a lot involved but it still sounds like KXM!

nfidelikah

The Infidels have re-branded themselves as Project N-fidelikah, a new funk punk ghetto underground quartet.

The quartet consists of George Lynch on guitar, Chris Moore on drums, Pancho Tomaselli on bass and Angelo Moore on vocals.

The band actually first branded itself as ‘The Infidels,’ but tepid venues led them to rethink things. “We didn’t want nobody coming up trying to shoot us at the concert, cut our heads off, so what I decided to do was take the Infidels and change it into almost a Swahili afro-centric name!,” Angelo Moore quips. “What if a lady’s name was N-fidelikah? What if N-fidelika was a giant Native American twerking robot who smashed all the villains with her ass?”

Project N-fidelika came about when while at the  the office at ESP Guitars, Tomaselli looked at a picture of the legendary George Lynch and thought about working with him. The bassist asked for the ex-Dokken guitarist’s number, called him up and forged the beginnings of the band. Drummer Chris Moore from Santa Ana got recruited into the fold, but they still needed a lead singer.

Moore suggested another Moore in the form of Fishbone’s Angelo Moore. “We both got the same name,” Angelo says. “Automatically, cosmically and karmically, that’s the hookup right there.”

Project N-fidelikah became a true melting pot with Lynch a Native American, Tomaselli coming from Ecuador and Angelo being black. Oh yeah, and then there’s Chris! “They call me THC, that’s ‘token hot cracker!’” he laughs.

The band debuts at the Troubador on Monday with more tour dates in store for the New Year to support the release of their tentatively self-titled album, one recorded, mixed and mastered in four months despite all the band members competing responsibilities.

Lynch Mob - Rebel

Review: Lynch Mob – Rebel

Frontiers Music srl (2015)

Reviewer: Aaron Chatfield

Let’s great straight to the point, George Lynch is one of the greatest hard rock guitarists around, from his days with Dokken, through his solo works and his projects such as KXM, but his work can sometimes be a bit of an acquired taste. Even with his band Lynch Mob, he has delivered work that makes the most ardent Lynch fan question himself (Smoke This, Take A Bow). I fully understand that all of this is part of George’s quest for that unique sound…..but, most of us a desperate to hear something that captures the magic that he created on the first Lynch Mob album, Wicked Sensation. With Oni Logan on the mic, the question is, does Rebel do that?

‘Automatic Fix’ starts us off with that recognisable modern Lynch Mob style. A mid paced rocker, that gives plenty of space for the guitars and vocals. It’s standard Lynch Mob through and through, so for fans, you’ll get into that groove… you will also just about wet yourself when the solo arrives, ‘cause it is a blinder……so much melody!

Between The truth And A Lie’ and ‘Testify’, continue the expected path through modern Lynch Mob style, with ‘Sanctuary’ and ‘Pine Tree Avenue’ following suit. In fact the whole album delivers what you are expecting from Lynch Mob in the current era. If you were a fan of Sun Red Sun and Sound Mountain Sessions, then you will be in familiar territory, plenty of groove, inventive guitar and bluesy vocals. That’s both good and bad, because it leaves you with little to be open mouthed about. The album rumbles past you like a freight train, making lots of noise, the ground rattle, etc… but ultimately it’s just another train and tracks like ‘Dirty Money’, ‘Kingdom of Slaves’ and the album closer ‘War’, come and go without really tunneling into your brain.

It’s difficult to pick individual tracks that stand out, they all have the distinctive sound, great guitar and vocals, everything you knew it was going to have, but nothing more.

I’m a Lynch Mob fan, so I do lap this up. If you are riding the same rolling stock as me, you will too, but if you’ve never got into the later Lynch Mob groove, this is probably not going to convert you or take you back to that quality post-Dokken debut.
