In April 2014 Mick James released a solo album “Mick James is Dead”. This album has a very unique sound. It could be described as raw, heavy, electric, action packed, industrial metal. This album is a sound that parallels the sound of musical artists such as Nine Inch Nails and Rob Zombie. Although some songs may sound like they have a dark theme, these songs are quite melodic. We listened to these songs over and over. Mick’s style of music is certainly unique. This is not run of the mill heavy metal. Mick’s songs will energize you through the entire album, waiting to see what comes next.
“Speeding like a Fiend” was our top favorite of the album. This song can be described as Bad Ass heavy metal. “Speeding like a Fiend” features, Skid Row’s, Dave “Snake” Sabo on guitar.
Another favorite was “911 Guest What You’re Dead” by Mick James, featuring ex-TNT vocalist, Tony Harnell on backing vocals. And who doesn’t love the sound of Tony Harnell’s voice?
The whole album continues on with a raw, but melodic industrial heavy metal sound, and is certainly worth a listen for metal fans, with Mick James will open your heavy metal world to a whole new genre of metal. Highly recommended checking out this new music from Mick James.
Currently Mick James can be found touring with dates on the west coast.
