Blacklite District

Welcome to Kick Acts. Tell us a little about yourself and were you can be found online.

Well I was born and raised in a town called Spearfish of the state of South Dakota. I met Kyle Pfeiffer (Lead Vox/guitars) in 5th grade and ever since then I’ve been by his side in the process of making music which later became Blacklite District. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.

Who are your musical heroes and influences? Why?

I’d have to go with Chester Bennington of Linkin Park is one of my biggest influences because they were the band that really inspired me to wanna get involved with music. Other heroes of mine would be James Hetfield, Ozzy Osbourne, Zakk Wylde and the list goes on and on.

Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in the music business?

Always have a lawyer and always make friends which will lead to great connections to get you further along and always be writing music. You either go full on with it or don’t do it. Go big or go home.

What piece of advice did you ignore that you wish you hadn’t?

Not having a lawyer at the time we absolutely should have had one but all you can do is live and learn and to move on.

Do you have a greatest gig story or worst gig horror story you’d like to share?

It’s always been an absolute blast playing at the famous venue “The Machine Shop” in Flint, Michigan. You can never go wrong playing there. They have an awesome staff, great sound and amazing hospitality. The party is just insane all around.

Worst gig we’ve had is where an amp or PA gets blown out and having to basically turn it into a stand up comedy show to keep the crowd from keeping silent until the situation is fixed. That’s never fun but we make the best of it. lol

 

Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of peckers or boobs?  Make sock puppets? Sit in the dark and eat Cheetos?

Always enjoying the art of drawing peckers and boobs growing up ahaha wtf. Some interesting questions we got here. Other that the drawings I enjoy running, disc golfing, skating and hiking quite a bit. I basically just love to be active and to be outdoors as much as possible.

What do you think about the current music scene or lack of? Care to address that?

For the rock world I definitely see it dying out just because there hasn’t been any bands that top the big names like GNR, Kiss, Motley Crue, or Linkin Park. It’s all just starting to sound the same anymore. Where are those top new bands coming out at?

Do you think reality shows like American Idol, X factor and The Voice have helped or hurt the music industry as a whole?

Look up some famous quotes that Dave Grohl states. He says exactly how I feel about those lame shows.

What is your opinion of unauthorized music downloads?

It’s definitely a big reason of why the industry has been hurt and has changed the game dramatically. No one buys records anymore when your able to just go on YouTube and listen to an entire album for free. People need to realize that artists put their life into the music spend thousands of dollars to make their records. It has come down to making your money doing live shows, period.

Do you know what a vinyl album is and have your ever purchased one? If so, what was it?

I know Vinyl records are out of date but I absolutely still rock them. I’ve got a couple old records players I use from time to time. I’ve got about a hundred old Vinyls including Black Sabbath, Kiss, The Doors, Led Zeppelin to even Linkin Park and more recent albums I’ll still occasionally purchase.

Which would you rather hear in concert?  Lip syncing or real vocals?

Real. Live. Vocals.

Who, or what, is the next big thing?

BLD is back and we are ready to roll harder than ever. It’s round 2 engaged. \m/

One artist you can’t get enough of and can’t live without is…

Linkin Park

Confession time. Share a secret about yourself.

My real name isn’t Roman it’s Nick. Roman is my middle name. In high school I would always get annoyed by classmates coming up to me and saying “I’m Nick James B****!” But I’ve always went by my middle name Roman.

Favorite movie of all time and why.

The Breakfast Club. No need for why but because it’s such a fresh classic and if you haven’t seen it there must be something wrong with you.

Our last question is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s were you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD!”

Get off your phones and enjoy this precious thing called life that we all have! Nothing upsets me more than seeing 5 year old kids playing on their IPads/iPhones instead of being outside and coping with reality.

 

KickActs interviews KT Paige from “Romantic Rebel”!

Romantic Rebel

[hmtad name=”Adsense Unit 1″ align=”center”]

Welcome to Kick Acts. Tell us a little about yourself and where you can be found online.
-KT: “My name is KT Paige. I sing for Romantic Rebel and I’m the Disney Princess of Horror. We’re most active on Facebook (Facebook.com/RomanticRebelRocks) so make sure you check out our page to see when we’ll be tearing up a venue near you!”
Who are your musical heroes and influences? Why?[hmtad name=”Adsense Unit 1″ align=”floatright”]

-KT: “I’m a huge fan of Stevie Nicks. I love her singing and her style in general. I also love Alice Cooper and Danny Worsnop for their music and stage presence.”
Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in the music business?
-KT: “Definitely network as much as possible and make as many friends in the business as you can. Also, you can only play the same circuit for so long. If you want people to hear your music, you have to tour outside of your city, state and region.”

What piece of advice did you ignore that you wish you hadn’t?
-KT: “Nothing comes to mind. We usually take all advice we receive into consideration.”

Do you have a greatest gig story or worst gig horror story you’d like to share?
-KT: “Playing Louder Than Life Fest was one of the coolest gigs we’ve played to date. Running into some of my band friends, as well as some of the musicians I look up to backstage, was pretty cool!”

Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of peckers or boobs? Make sock puppets? Sit in the dark and eat Cheetos?
-KT: “I paint a lot of zombies and puppies.”

What do you think about the current music scene or lack of? Care to address that?
-KT: “It seems that a lot of bands nowadays feel that they don’t need to actually play their instruments or sing when they play shows. Sometimes the band’s album was produced to make the band sound better than they really are and when the time comes to perform it live, they can’t live up to the perfected sounds on the recording. So as a result, they use a multitude of tracks to give the illusion that they can actually play their parts just like the album. I’m not talking about background synth or strings that can give a live song body. It’s when singers are moving their mouths to melodies that are out of their range and guitarists are moving their hands up and down the guitar neck to a complicated riff. The way I look at it, if you can’t play it live, don’t put it on the album.”<——–HELL YEA I AGREE! (Editor)

Do you think reality shows like American Idol, X factor and The Voice have helped or hurt the music industry as a whole?
-KT: “I don’t think it really affects it. Excluding: Adam Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, etc., most of the contestants on the show rarely make a dent in the industry after the show ends.”

What is your opinion of unauthorized music downloads?
-KT: “It’s a problem that is always going to occur. So the only thing you can do is think about the fact that your music is being spread around, even if it’s not in the most ideal manner.”

Tell us something about each of your band members that we wouldn’t expect to hear.
-KT: “Alex is a huge fan of all things Star Wars, Marvel and DC. Zach is completely obsessed with candy. Ty claims he loves Stars Wars, but he still hasn’t seen The Force Awakens.”

Do you know what a vinyl album is and have your ever purchased one? If so, what was it?
-KT: “If I didn’t know what a vinyl album was, I don’t deserve to be in band. I don’t own a record player, but I’ve bought ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’ as a gift for someone who does.”

Which would you rather hear in concert? Lip syncing or real vocals?
-KT: “I think you know my opinion of this by now.”

Who, or what, is the next big thing?-KT: “Only the Music Gods know the answer to that…”

[hmtad name=”Adsense Unit 1″ align=”center”]
One artist you can’t get enough of and can’t live without is…
-KT: “Right now, it’s Fleetwood Mac, but that will probably change next month.”

Favorite movie of all time and why.
-KT: “Hardest. Question. Ever. I have an answer for every genre.”

Our last question is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s where you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead KT PAIGE and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD”!

-KT: “We’ll be heading out on tour this Summer, so come to a show and party with us!”

SLAYER’s New Music video “Repentless” (GRAPHIC)

Posted onSeptember 11, 2015
google.com, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

I sometimes simply amaze myself. One minute I am listening to Tex Ritter’s “Hillbilly Heaven” and the next I am listening to SLAYER! lol! For guys in the mid 50’s SLAYER is still kicking ass and taking names. Album, tour and repeat!

[hmtad name=”Adsense Unit 1″ align=”center”]

Here it is.. “GRAPHIC”

/Band: Tom Araya, Kerry King

Prison riot breaks out during Slayer’s performance LEFT TO RIGHT/Band: Tom Araya, Kerry King

 

From Blabbermouth:

SLAYER‘s video for “Repentless” — the title track of the band’s new album — can be seen below. The clip was filmed on August 26 at the Sybil Brand Institute, the women’s prison in East Los Angeles. While SLAYER performed the track under that punishing sun over an eight-hour period, the “prisoners” had to stage a riot for somewhere north of twelve takes before director BJ McDonnell finally called it a wrap. But that was all pretty much in keeping with McDonnell‘s brutal vision for the clip, a vision that many in the veteran cast and crew referred to as “more like something for a feature film than a rock band’s music video.”

W.A.S.P. Lyric Video For New Song ‘Scream’

Posted onSeptember 2, 2015

  I would like to say “hard to believe” but I have to say, isn’t it awesome that Blackie Lawless is still kicking out great music after all this time. I first got turned on to W.AS.P. back in the day when they released songs like “Hellion”, “I wanna Be Somebody”, “Sleeping in the Fire” and “F**k like a Beast”. The metal guitars and Blackie’s vocals cut thru like a knife or as in W.A.S.P.’s logo, a saw blade! It was great music for the angry youth of the day.W.A.S.P. continues to release great music and tours to this day. However Blackie’s heart isn’t so black anymore. His music is still hard hitting and his lyrics are still powerful. W.A.S.P.’s new album is called Golgotha. Make sense? Check out this lyric video and did you get the message.

KickActs interviews Norman Matthew of “Murder FM”!

Posted onAugust 14, 2015
google.com, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Welcome to Kick Acts. Tell us a little about yourself and were you can be found online.

[hmtad name=”Adsense Unit 1″ align=”floatright”]

NORMAN MATTHEW: (in the vein of Tenacious D) Murder FM, greatest band on earth haha! We are the second coming of arena rock and not to proud to say

You can #getevil and find us online at murderfmmusic.com

Murder FM

Who are your musical heroes and influences? Why?

NORMAN MATTHEW: KISS, MOTLEY CRUE, GUNS N ROSES for that big, edgy, arena rock sound with huge hooks. THE CURE and DEPECHE MODE for introducing a dark, sleek, sexiness to lyrical content, because I’m not much a partier, so I really connected with that growing up, along with a dark classiness to band imagery I fell in love with. Then there was NINE INCH NAILS. Trent changed the game for me and opened my ears to an whole other sensory level of production. I adopted Trent Reznor’s work ethic in that i write the songs for the band, then bring them to the jam room to bring them to life live. Im not a jammer, i like to have a blue print or a road map with at least a general idea of where I am heading. NIN really influenced me production wise as well..

Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in the music business?

NORMAN MATTHEW: Learn it from the inside out!! Educate yourself on every level from management to booking, from being a roadie to a producer. The only way to be successful in this new industry model is to understand the business at the core, from the inside out, much like executives need to have product knowledge. The educated musician is the musician that will survive in this new world order of music.

What piece of advice did you ignore that you wish you hadn’t?

NORMAN MATTHEW: I have listened to every piece of advice ever given to me from anyone who came before me was willing to give me. I may not have followed it all, but I tailored it to what fit me. Best advice I ever received, “be careful who you step on the way up, because you see them on the way down” and “they can’t feel what doesn’t have feeling, so put every bit of yourself in every note”, i morphed that one so i can feel yoda like.

Do you have a greatest gig story or worst gig horror story you’d like to share?

NORMAN MATTHEW: Hmmm, that’s hard. EVERY show comes with it’s own set of challenges, from travel to sleep deprivation, the stress of having a hand in the business and in the creative, but i try to not focus on the negative and i never, ever look back or dwell on what i could’ve done, i just learn and move on. DEF greatest memory, first UK tour being sold out and performing in cities I only dreamed of as a kid such as Cardiff, Wales, Glasgow, Scotland and London, England, UK Fans Represent!

Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of peckers or boobs? Make sock puppets? Sit in the dark and eat Cheetos?

NORMAN MATTHEW: Sit in the dark and eat Cheetos haha! I’m a video game freak, love WWE Wrestling, I re-watch episodes of King Of the Hill and I’m addicted to DDP Yoga..yup I said, ALL of that.

What do you think about the current music scene or lack of? Care to address that?

NORMAN MATTHEW: I don’t really pay attention to the scene, I’m too busy worrying about creating OUR scene and bringing something new to the table. Time for a new regime and a new legion to take over. I’ll either succeed or fail, but it will be on my terms and with my peeps \m/

Do you think reality shows like American Idol, X factor and The Voice have helped or hurt the music industry as a whole?

NORMAN MATTHEW: Both. Anything that can give an artist exposure and a chance to thrive in the business is always a plus to me on any level, i’m not a hater like that. I do feel it has hurt the mentality and the work ethic. Perception is reality and on the outside, it makes it seem like all you have to do is get on one of these shows, competition or in a battle of the bands and you are set. It takes years of work, blood, sweat equity and tears. You have to earn your way up the proverbial latter within the industry and network, while creating your brand, understanding your market and growing as an artist. Opportunity only pays off when an artist really has something to offer. Until then, keep driving in that van and jamming in the basement until you know in your heart it’s right. If your mind is connected to your heart and your soul, you will know.

What is your opinion of unauthorized music downloads?

NORMAN MATTHEW: Sucks. I love it as a consumer, but as a musician, it’s hard. It’s not about the money, but it’s about your favorite artist being able to survive as a musician and financially sustain yourself to keep creating. People seem to think if you are a “rockstar”, you are somehow rich. Spotify pays crap, Who knows what Apple Music will do and do some simple math of your own, split $0.99 between, band members, manager, label, distribution, marketing and you tell me who’s robbing who at the end of the day haha! If you are going to take music for free, at least support your favorite bands by going to the shows, buying the merch. and spreading the word like a disease, that’s the best way to help your favorite artists art.

I thank you in advance! \m/

Tell us something about each of your band members that we wouldn’t expect to hear.

NORMAN MATTHEW: I wish I could. We are all pretty chill dudes, no good drama and weird quirks. We like to create and maintain all our madness onstage…and believe me…it shows

Hypothetical situation. You’re on Gilligan’s island and you get to hook up with only one of the survivors… Which one and why?

NORMAN MATTHEW: That’s a loaded question, that could get me in trouble no matter how you slice it haha! If i HAD to pick, it would be either Gilligan for the laughs or Ginger for the…..laughs, yeah that’s it!

Do you know what a vinyl album is and have your ever purchased one? If so, what was it?

NORMAN MATTHEW: are you kidding me? i grew up on vinyl. My 1yr old loves to listen to KISS “Alive II” or Guns N Roses “Appetite For Destruction” before bed with me, not even kidding! Those are his lullabies.

You’re marooned on an island with Justin Bieber. Do you choke him out the first night in his sleep or what?

NORMAN MATTHEW: I’d keep him around just to torment him, If I killed him, then I would be bored. Hopefully he owns the island we are marooned on, then I’d live it up! I have the super power of tuning people out, so it’s easy for me to ignore things.

What is your opinion of Miley Cyrus?

NORMAN MATTHEW: who didn’t love “Achy Breaky Heart”? Oh wait, that’s her dad ha! I don’t ever pay attention to that celeb scene because it’s a waste of my day. It’s like, who cares and how does this effect me and my life? so im pretty out of touch with all that and always will be.

Which would you rather hear in concert? Lip syncing or real vocals?

NORMAN MATTHEW: Lead Singers being lead vocalists of course! I Love hearing a singer tell their story, even if it’s breathy or pitchy, it’s real. Additional vocals in live production on track are nothing to be scoffed at though, some huge productions have to do it and much like playing to a metronome or click track live, you have to be spot on, the whole time. So as long as there’s reality in the mix, i don’t mind a little fantasy to ensure the live show is amazing. People pay their hard earned money to see a great show. Deliver.

Who, or what, is the next big thing?

NORMAN MATTHEW: Murder FM. haha! I don’t know, it’s hard to tell, attention spans are so short these days and technology allows Anyone to put Anything out, there’s no natural filter anymore. Murder FM want to bring rock back to arenas \m

One artist you can’t get enough of and can’t live without is…

NORMAN MATTHEW: KISS

Confession time. Share a secret about yourself.

NORMAN MATTHEW: I’m terrified of karaoke. I don’t drink and i play an instrument, so you can see where i’m a terrible candidate for karaoke, i take it too serious haha!

Favorite movie of all time and why.

NORMAN MATTHEW: Nightmare Before Christmas. The imagery, the characters, the story, the combination of my two favorite holidays and without a doubt, the score by Dany Elfman. I absolutely love his work.

Our last question is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s were you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD”!

NORMAN MATTHEW: You know what grinds my gears? People looking down on Fake boobs, why do people frown upon them? i mean really, they aren’t fake. i can see them, touch them, they don’t disappear and make my Ocd very happy. hahahahaha! I’m sure that will get me in all kinds of trouble, but i don’t really think about many other things. Man, born and bred! “Sex,Sex and Rock N Roll”

Slayer’s Tom Araya really hates touring. Here’s why

512At 54, he is tired. Misses his family and more. For an inside look at one of Metal’s God father’s of Metal. One of the original “Big Four!”. You can safely bet that hotels and airports are not on his list of things to do anymore…  

from VICETom Araya Sold His Soul to Slayer, But Was It Worth It? | NOISEY

“You’re in a bus all day, you stop at a rest stop, you go to work, you get back on the bus.
That’s it. It’s funny, recently we went to Europe to do press for the new album. We did three days in London, a day in Paris, a day in Norway, two days or three days in Germany. And people are like “Oh, that must be nice. Did you get to see much of Paris?” And I look at them, and say “See this room? Look around you.” And they’re looking around. “This is my Paris. It’s beautiful isn’t it?” [Laughs] That’s what I say whenever anybody asks me that, because we’re always in the hotels doing interviews and everybody asks me that. “Did you get to see much of Stockholm?” I’ll look around and I’ll show them the room. “How do you like it? This is my Stockholm. It’s beautiful, isn’t it? I like the drapes. Look at the couch. Wonderful.” And then you open the window and go “This is my painting, my picture. This is what I see.”

I could tell you what every airport in the fucking world looks like. It’s a sad day when you can do that, let me tell you that.”

letra-let’s face it. Record companies no longer exist. The ones that do, don’t really support the bands anymore. No more large recording budgets or large touring budgets unless you’re already a large band with a large catalog and fan base. There are no bucks in music. The little that’s there is spread thin. So what do bands do to supplement their income?

They make money on soft sales. Every band has t-shirts, baby dolls, and other swag for sale. But some go further than that. For instance,  Michael Anthony has his own hot sauce. Jesse James from “Jackyl” has his own bourbon whiskey brand. As a band, you have to do what you have to do. Most bands sell packages of different levels to increase sales.

And now, setting the bar much higher by using her head and her “assets”, Veronica Freeman. The voice of  “Benedictum” and her just released solo album on Frontier records called “Now or Never”. Her website features different memberships and subscription levels too. From autographed Cd’s to T-shirts and, well…This special package for 50 bucks!

Who are your musical heroes and influences? Why?

Stevie Nicks and Sade because their voices are epic. They are legendary in their on rite and their styles are both timeless.

Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in the music business?

Always make sure you know what the heck is going on! Know your business and don’t let anyone BS you, but most importantly push as hard as possible and let nothing sway you from your dreams and goals.

What piece of advice did you ignore that you wish you hadn’t?

I wish I would have listened more to my brother and my dad when it came to being more involved in the business aspect of things in the past instead of just counting on everyone else to handle all the business.

Do you have a greatest gig story or worst gig horror story you’d like to share?

Playing overseas for the first time in the UK for the Download Festival was amazing and we had a blast. I remember feeling sick to my stomach with nervousness on seeing just how massive the crowd was. It was an intense epic moment in time.
Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of peckers or boobs? Make sock puppets? Sit in the dark and eat Cheetos?

I collect Walt Disney’s Goofy items and I am a old school horror movie fanatic.

What do you think about the current music scene or lack of? Care to address that?

It would be nice if the music scene had more camaraderie. It seems like nowadays everyone is only out for themselves and that kinda blows. There are so many great bands and musicians out there to get to know and play with but I notice the scene is very “clicky”.

Do you think reality shows like American Idol, X factor and The Voice have helped or hurt the music industry as a whole?

One could say these shows have over saturated the industry but it’s also helped a lot of people get their voice heard.

What is your opinion of unauthorized music downloads? 

It helps and it hurts. I think it has pushed the music industry in the direction that it’s going.

Tell us something about each of your band members that we wouldn’t expect to hear.

Jason is a human cyborg, seriously he’s part robot!! He’s so strong and can take a lot..more than the average human. Darren and I were both born with 12 fingers. Both of us had them cut when we were babies, but we still have the little bump on the side of our hands. We’re a band of mutants lol

Hypothetical situation. You’re on Gilligan’s island and you get to hook up with only one of the survivors… Which one and why?

Probably Russell Johnson’s character The Professor, because he’s more my type and he just comes off so debonair.

Do you know what a vinyl album is and have your ever purchased one? If so, what was it?

I was raised on vinyl. My mother has a huge collection of old records she would play all the time when I was a kid. I definitely have an appreciation for the look and the sound of vinyl.

You’re marooned on an island with Justin Bieber. Do you choke him out the first night in his sleep or what?

I don’t know Justin Bieber like that so I couldn’t say.

What is your opinion of Miley Cyrus?

I actually don’t have an opinion on Miley Cyrus, because I don’t know her personally. I just try to stay in my own lane and not focus on what others are doing.

Which would you rather hear in concert? Lip synching or real vocals?

Real vocals! I can listen to a record from the comfort of my home anytime. If I go out to see a show, I want to see a real show.

Who, or what, is the next big thing?

I hope it’s us 🙂

One artist you can’t get enough of and can’t live without is…

I need Stevie Nicks/ Fleetwood Mac in my life, because their music has influenced me so much.

Confession time. Share a secret about yourself.

I love people but yet I’m terrified of them..
