THREE TREMORS UNLEASH “FLY OR DIE” VIDEO, TO HEADLINE METALFEST IN SPAIN



Three of metal’s finest vocalists, known collectively as THREE TREMORS - Tim "Ripper" Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, DIO DISCIPLES), Harry "The Tyrant" Conklin (JAG PANZER, SATAN’S HOST, TITAN FORCE), and Sean "The Hell Destroyer" Peck (CAGE, DENNER/SHERMANN, DEATH DEALER) - have unveiled the latest video from their self-titled debut, for the track “Fly or Die.” As seen in the striking clip, footage of fighter planes and the Three Tremors singing the tune on a landing strip is on display throughout: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HLu-qi9Vtk&feature=youtu.be

Sean: This video was great to shoot on a bunch of levels. First I am a big war buff and being in the cockpit of that Mustang was incredible. To think all those brave warriors did battle in those tight, cramped cockpits, gives you an entirely new perspective on just how insane it must have been. Next I think the metal godz were smiling on us that day as it was the eye of the storm, and the only clear day without heavy rain for 2 weeks straight. The mountains surrounding San Diego were covered in snow and the air was crisp, it was a glorious day to do this tribute to such an important event in American history. After playing this song live now for over 30 plus shows, a lot of fans have been calling it the “Aces High” of the modern age which of course is the ultimate heavy metal compliment! 

Harry: Best “ hair day” of my life!! Blast being a part of the past! Always the best time of my life filming with my metal brothers!

Ripper: This is another great song to play live. The place always fires off once this song gets going. 

The trio have just wrapped up their first-ever US tour, and are planning on remaining busy - more dates will be announced shortly, including a spot confirmed at MetalFest XIV in Spain on August 3rd. Additionally, the Three Tremors  have received press coverage by the likes of Billboard and Loudwire, plus rave reviews by BraveWords (“It might be early, but I can safely say this will be a top album of 2019”) and Metal Temple (“A splendid vision was put into work, feverishly executed, ending with a strong record”), among other outlets.

And now, metalheads can see what the buzz is about by their latest music video!

Episode 412 - Face The Music


As if both Keith St John and Doug Aldrich aren’t busy enough they have managed to write and record another Burning Rain album “Face The Music”. It’s been a while since 2013’s “Epic Obsession” (see earlier busy comment) but the wait was worth it. 11 tracks of classic hard rock with all the riffs that Doug is known for. The version for Japan also includes a bonus acoustic track. This week Doug joins us to give the rundown on the album and what else he currently has going on including The Dead Daisies and Revolution Saints.
