Overview

During his break from Quiet Riot in 2004, Kevin DuBrow remained busy, as he toured alongside such metal titans as Steven Adler and Jani Lane as part of the Bad Boys of Metal Tour, and also issued his first ever solo release, In for the Kill. An entirely 'all covers' affair (which along with unplugged albums, has become the industry standard for veteran rock acts), DuBrow tackles songs from groups that shaped Quiet Riot's style early on. While you're obviously not going to be expecting a vocal tour de force on par with Ronnie James Dio or Geoff Tate here, DuBrow certainly sounds like he's having a good time letting his hair down and revisiting some favorites from his record collection. Included are spirited versions of Deep Purple's "Speed King," Queen's "Modern Times Rock N' Roll," and T. Rex's "20th Century Boy." Surprisingly, with an album title like In for the Kill, you'd expect a cover of the renowned (to metalheads, at least) Budgie tune of the same name -- but it's nowhere to be found. And for all the wisenheimers out there -- no, there's not a single Slade cover.

Kevin DuBrow returns to the Rock & Roll scene with a brand new solo CD entitled, "In For The Kill" available now on Shrapnel Records. What makes this effort such a unique and exciting release is the fact that Kevin has taken a collection of his favorite songs from the past and recorded them in such a way that makes them all sound fresh for today and gives the listener a chance to hear and appreciate Kevin's singing abilities. The CD starts with "Burn on the Flame" a number you can't help but sing along with after your first listen. The CD moves through all of the songs with a kicking/rocking straight ahead in your face type of a beat. There's "Black Sheep of the Family" which really stretches Kevin's musical talents. The highlight of the CD, "Red Light Mama, Red Hot" (Humble Pie) shows Kevin at his best on the CD both vocally and musically. Songs like "Drivin' Sister" & "Modern Times Rock and Roll" while they may be unknown to many in their original form, here Kevin takes them and records them into his own version of good rock songs to hear today. The best thing I can say about this record is that it sounds like a brand new, interesting original release from Kevin DuBrow and not a bunch of old cover tunes that we have heard covered a million times over again. Any Quiet Riot fans and All Rock & Roll fans will not be disappointed with this CD. This is a great Rock and Roll record! It sounds great, was recorded and produced well (thanks to Kevin & Michael Lardie) and the artwork is cool! It's a good CD to put in your car, turn the volume up and cruise around!! Buy it today.
