#571 MTRS - Interview with the almighty VULTAN

In this little episode we jump right into it and hand the reigns over to Tim. Since Michael and Dom are being interviewed in this episode. You get a nice little interview with the guys from Vultan. A talk about the Deathstar and so much more. Plus the ADHD that plagues the band, seeing they just got up and left Tim to hear Jizzy Pearl sing some Love/Hate. Vultan was doing a little tour run with Quiet Riot and did a show in Cleveland on Oct 19th to a packed venue.

QUIET RIOT Premiere Video For "In the Blood"

Legendary hard rock and heavy metal icons QUIET RIOT will release their new album “Hollywood Cowboys,” on November 8th via Frontiers Music Srl. Today, the band premieres the video for the track “In the Blood.”  Watch it HERE:


Pre-order the album and stream singles at: https://radi.al/HollywoodCowboys | Limited edition 180g, gatefold, color vinyl available exclusively in the Frontiers’ U.S. and EU webstores HERE: http://radi.al/FrontiersMusic

QUIET RIOT continues their historic journey with long-time member (first joining in 1982) and drummer Frankie Banali leading the charge. He is joined by bassist Chuck Wright and guitarist Alex Grossi. Vocalist James Durban handles frontman duties on this album, though it was recently announced that James has left to pursue a solo career and former QR frontman Jizzy Pearl (Love/Hate) has returned to the fold.

Musically, the new album offers exactly what you would expect from QUIET RIOT. Arena ready hard rock with strong hooks and infectious riffs, along with a maturity in the songwriting that only a band with such a history and pedigree can offer.



  1. Don’t Call It Love
  2. In The Blood
  3. Heartbreak City
  4. The Devil That You Know
  5. Change Or Die
  6. Roll On
  7. Insanity
  8. Hellbender
  9. Wild Horses
  10. Holding On
  11. Last Outcast
  12. Arrows And Angels

Album Line-up:

Frankie Banali – drums

Alex Grossi – guitars

Chuck Wright – bass guitar

James Durbin – vocals

Produced by Frankie Banali


QUIET RIOT is a rock & roll phenomenon. Widely known as the first heavy metal band to top the US pop charts, the Los Angeles quartet became a global sensation thanks to their monstrous smash hit 1983 album, “Metal Health”. That album topped the Billboard album charts for several months and the follow up album, “Condition Critical” went double platinum. The band has continued to record (a total of 11 studio albums) and tour throughout their 30 + year history.

Frankie Banali’s history with QUIET RIOT spans over 34 years and he has the distinction of being the only member of QUIET RIOT to have recorded on every QUIET RIOT release starting with the release of their breakthrough album, “Metal Health” through to the present day. After nearly ten years since the loss of his friend and bandmate Kevin DuBrow, and with careful consideration, soul searching and with the blessings and support of Kevin DuBrow’s family, Frankie has moved forward with the band.

2019’s Winter Tour to Bring Classic Album to the Stage With Brand-New Production, Staging & Effects

Fan Club Pre-Sale Begins September 4
General Public Tickets Go On Sale September 13

Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) The multi-platinum, critically-acclaimed progressive rock group today announced its highly-anticipated Christmas Eve and Other Stories.” TSO’s show that started small, performed to 12,000 people in five cities in 1999, which then exploded onto the national scene, eventually playing to 9 million fans over the course of an incredible 12 years (through 2011), the mega-hit “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” has grossed an incredible $377 million over 1224 performances.

A product of the vision and imagination of TSO’s late founder/composer/lyricist Paul O’Neill, “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” began the unique format O’Neill called “Rock Theater” and forged a deep connection with their fans that it turned into the wildly-successful tour, cementing the group’s status as a must-see, multi-generational, holiday tradition and kick-started the trend of Yuletide season tours. This year’s unforgettable multi-sensory extravaganza is set to begin on November 13th and will visit 66 cities for 109 performances across North America before concluding on December 30th (see full itinerary below and online).

Starting today, Aug. 19th, the Winter Tour 2019 will begin its “12 Days of TSO Verified Fan Registration” where all fans can sign up at tso.tmverifiedfan.com (powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan) for exclusive access to the best tickets for the best price before tickets go on sale to the general public. Presales will begin for TSO fan club members on Tues., Sept. 4 for November 13 through November 30 tour dates and on Thurs., Sept. 5 for Dec. 1 through December 30 tour dates. Fans who are not members of TSO’s fan club, but have registered during the “12 Days of TSO Verified Fan Registration” will have the opportunity to participate in presales on Sept. 9 and 10. General public on sale is set to begin on Sept. 13th. For more details on tour dates and all on sales, visit www.trans-siberian.com.
