NEW ALBUM: ’80’s Hair Metal’ Album Released Today!

80's Hair Metal

That’s right folks – we’re back… and LOUDER THAN EVER!!
A brand new 80’s Hair Metal album, with all the spandex and long hair you could wish for, is released today.

In 2013, Barrie Gledden, Kes Loy, Chris Bussey & I set about writing an album for AudioNetwork in the true 80’s Hair Rock style… Big drums, big guitars & even bigger hair!

The result was a riotous album that folks seemed to love – 80’s Hair Rock
Now, we’re here again with 80’s Hair Metal
The albums feature Nigel Bailey on vocals.

Coming Alive – Up-tempo rocker with hot guitar riffs, slamming drums & male vocals

Give Me Your Love – Positive power ballad with huge drums & emotional male vocal

Heart Break – Melodic 80s power ballad with shredding guitars, big drums & male vocals

Got To Rock – High energy big hair metal. Living life to the limit lyrics with male vocals

Night Warriors – Razor-edged guitar riffs & hard hitting drums with classic rock male vocals

Primetime Love – Fists in the air 80’s stadium rocker with loud guitars & male vocals

What You Do To Me – Strutting classic rock with massive drums, powerful guitars & male vocals

Hit The Top – High energy driving 80s rock with chugging guitars & positive male vocals

Hope you find the album as much fun to listen to as it was for us to make!
Thanks for stopping by…

80's Hair Rock

Following the release of this months albums from AudioNetwork… December 2013 takes me through the 300+ track mark for the company.

All my tracks can be heard, bought & downloaded from here

One of the big releases this month is the ’80’s Hair Rock’ album – see my earlier blog for more details & Barrie Gledden’s blog here.

The album has 8 tracks, all in the style of the 80’s Hair Metal bands – but not only are there vocal versions of the songs; Barrie Gledden, Kes Loy & Mark Pitchforth also recorded ‘Shred Guitar’ versions too! (Version 2 on all tracks).

Always Be There – Powerful stadium 80’s rock ballad about lost love.

Thirst For Life – Melodic, inspiring 1980’s heavy rock anthem.

She’s Primeval – Raw, driving 80’s heavy rock song about primeval desire.

Rock Is The Answer – Thumping 80’s heavy rock song with mighty call & response chorus – What was the question?

On a different note & despite the UK Winter being upon us (it’s always Summer somewhere)… another new track this month is ‘Lazy Summer‘ – Children’s sunshine pop with guitars, handclaps & cheerful bell melody.

Enjoy! if you like them… buy them… Thanks.
