October is breast cancer awareness month. A few months back I wanted to do another comp album that featured female fronted bands. Instead of giving it away, I wanted to make it a “Name your price” but charge a minimum of $1 with 100% of the proceeds going to a breast cancer research charity. Unfortunately I couldn’t get enough female fronted bands to get behind this project. Only 4 bands got on board with the project with 3 submitting songs (the 4th hadn’t yet completed recording). I couldn’t go on with just 4 bands so unfortunately I had to scrape the plan. The next best thing I could do was to create this Podcast dedicated to the women of rock and to remind every lady out there to check yourself or go get checked for breast cancer. So, in my best Barry White voice, ladies, this one is for you. Save the tatas! You can donate by clicking on the tatas below.

I’ve been sitting on this one and enjoying it for quite some time now. The band is Royal Thunder, they’re from Atlanta, GA and this is their self titled EP. The EP is comprised of one part hard rock, one part doom metal and all kick ass.
The album starts out with an intro that last 1:40 then gets right into the first track, “Sleeping Witch.” The tracks have a nice even flow to them. The music is doomy but not in a deep heavy tune. It’s more of a nice melodic album. Take a little bit of Evanescence with the vocals of a drug free and more talented Courtney Love. The music is actually pretty entrancing and great to sit and mellow out to. (more…)
