Ex-MISFITS Guitarist DOYLE and Loudwire.com Unleash Brand New Lyric Video for ‘Valley of Shadows’

Get Your DOYLE DIGIPAK Now Exclusively From www.officialdoyle.com.


Although former Misfits guitarist DOYLE is currently on the road performing for U.S. fans withDanzig as part of the DANZIG 25 tour, that does not mean he cannot share a little bit of his new album Abominator with his fans across the globe. ‘Valley of Shadows’, the previously released single from the new album, now has a lyric video counterpart. The video is being released today viaLoudwire.com, exclusively. Take a look at the video here.


“To introduce our new album Abominator, we are releasing the official lyric video for the first single ‘Valley Of Shadows’. A dark journey through a world of lust and violence,” states vocalist Alex Story. “Showcasing the evolution of sound DOYLE has achieved from his already legendary development with The Misfits, this song rages with the primal fury and carnality found throughout the band’s debut album. This is a call to arms to true fiends everywhere. The trip through the valley is a brutal thrill filled ride to hell that you won’t soon forget. Where hardcore punk meets old school thrash and a new breed of doom metal, ‘Valley Of Shadows’ is just a glimpse into what is to come from Abominator.”


DOYLE Wolfgang Von Frankenstein released his brand new album Abominator in July with his own label, Monsterman Records (in partnership with Brain Muscle Media), via INgrooves, the leading global independent music distributor. DOYLE is represented by Insane Management. The album is available digitally at all major digital retailers now, and will be available in CD and vinyl form in October 2013. A digipack is available now exclusively from www.officialdoyle.com.


On his Facebook page, Glenn Danzig recently spoke out in support of Abominator“Hey, DanzigFans – get ready for the pure hellish darkness that is Abominator, the new solo album from the Monsterman himself, DOYLE Wolfgang Von Frankenstein.  ‘Blow up the System’ with something real for your ears instead of that bullshit music the industry machine is trying to force-feed you!!”



As mentioned above, DOYLE is currently touring with Danzig in North America. On each date,DOYLE hits the stage with Danzig to run through a set of Misfits classics, paying homage to their legacy as, arguably, the most influential horror-punk band of all time. See below for all remaining tour dates.

image001 (3)


ADRENALINE MOB and Loudwire.com are revealing a second video in the ‘Barracuda’ tracking session series featuring vocalist Russell Allen’s hysterical commentary during the tracking of his impressive rendition of the popular track, originally performed by Heart. You can watch the video here. Each new tracking session video was taken during the recording of the band’s new covers EP, Coverta. More ‘Barracuda’ tracking sessions are coming soon, so stay tuned to Loudwire.com in the coming weeks.


“I’ve been listening to Heart ever since I was a kid,” states Russell Allen. “Ann Wilson’s voice is soulful, powerful, and sexy. Nancy Wilson’s playing is all that and then some! Heart’s recent performance of Stairway to Heaven at the Kennedy Center Honors was awe-inspiring! Tracking their classic ‘Barracuda’ was very challenging but incredibly rewarding. It was my extreme pleasure to sing this song.”


You can buy Coverta physically at Best Buy and other major music retailers and digitally atAmazon and iTunes now.


ADRENALINE MOB, featuring Russell Allen (Symphony X), Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), John Moyer (Disturbed) and Mike Orlando (Sonic Stomp), are currently on tour in the U.S.! While in Colorado Springs, CO on April 1st, the band will be visiting Schriever Air Force Base to take part in a special meet and greet and acoustic performance in celebration of our troops and their service to our country. The band and the hosting base are excited to take part in the event.


“I’m very honored to be invited to play for our troops,” states Russell Allen. “I look forward to meeting them and giving a little back to those brave men and women who give so much to protect our right to live free.”


“We welcome the opportunity to showcase Schriever’s mission,” adds James Hodges, Chief of Community Outreach at Schriever AFB. “We are very excited to have ADRENALINE MOB take time out of their busy schedule to meet with our Airmen.”


Keep your eyes peeled to the web for footage of the acoustic performance coming shortly afterward.

ADRENALINE MOB Unveils New ‘Coverta’ Tracking Sessions Series for ‘Barracuda’

ADRENALINE MOB and Loudwire.com are unveiling the second series of Coverta tracking session videos, this time for the track ‘Barracuda’ (originally performed by Heart). The first new tracking video is available for viewing now at this location. More ‘Barracuda’ tracking sessions are coming soon, so stay tuned to Loudwire.com in the coming weeks. Also, make sure to vote for ADRENALINE MOB in this week’s Loudwire cage match – VOTE NOW.


World-renowned ADRENALINE MOB drummer Mike Portnoy comments, “I picked this track. I always thought this was a killer song and would make for a great modern-metal update. I produced a demo for my wife’s old thrash band Meanstreak back in the early 90’s and they covered this but it was never released, so I thought it would be great one for us to Mob-up! There’s very few male singers that could tackle Ann Wilson’s incredible vocal range, but I had a hunch Russell would kill it and sure enough, he did!”


Want more tracking sessions? GuitarWorld.com is currently hosting the tracking session videos for the first single, ‘Romeo Delight’ (originally performed by Van Halen). You can watch those specific videos now at this link.


You can buy Coverta physically at Best Buy and other major music retailers and digitally at Amazon and iTunes now.

Swedish visual masterminds AVATAR have unveiled their latest video for “Smells Like A Freakshow” today exclusively at LOUDWIRE.COM…

Frontman Johannes Eckerström adds his own words about the new video:

“The video illustrates inner conflict in an explicit manner, using abuse of unjust power in different contexts. The lyrical themes of downfall, embracing of decadence and failed attempts to escape are pointed out by the fact that ultimately the bad guys win.”

The band kicks off their very first U.S. tour supporting LACUNA COIL and SEVENDUST with an intimate performance at The Studio at Webster Hall in New York City on Wednesday January 30th.

It’ll be fast, it’ll be furious – guaranteed.”
