Slash is gearing up to unchain his sophomore solo album, ‘Apocalyptic Love,’ on May 22. With so much drama surrounding Slash during his tenure with Guns N’ Roses and again recently with Axl Rose’s refusal to show up for GN’R's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month, the guitarist is happy to be involved in a project that’s drama-free.
“This has been really liberating for me,” Slash tells the Orlando Sentential. “The first solo album was the first time, really, that I was on my own to stretch my wings without the democratic, diplomatic situation you have to have in a band. That went right into working with these guys.”
He adds, “It’s non-confrontational, non-dramatic. I’ve never been in a situation like that where there’s no reason to have an issue about anything. I haven’t had this much fun in a band situation since Guns started.”
Slash’s new album features Alter Bridge vocalist Myles Kennedy on vocals and as co-songwriter. The guitarist says the two are on the same wavelength when writing and recording songs.
“We’re both workaholics,” Slash explains. “We’d be working six nights a week, then get back to the hotel in middle of the night. I’d have ideas and MP3 them to Myles. There he’d be, sitting at his computer working.”
He concludes, “It’s different when you’re dealing with people who aren’t looking to cause problems, who aren’t so self-centered and screwed up that everything has to be a battle. I’m not saying that about any of the bands I’ve been in, per se. Rock ‘n’ roll tends to breed a lot of idiosyncratic stuff, but I’ve been around to the point now that I don’t have time for that.”

James Schmid from Waterloo, Ontorio. Alter Bridge provides everything you'd expect from a rock radio hit, while also giving die hard AB fans everything they expect from their beloved band with My Champion.
The song opens with a guitar riff reminiscent of Def Leppards "Photograph" before hitting you square in the face with a "heavy for radio" sound that remains catchy without disappointing their "we like it fast and hard" fans. Their fan base, and music ranges in such a wide spectrum, it…

unique blend of female fronted Metal/Rock/Industrial that is Gabriel And The Apocalypse. The
band delivers a fierce yet beautiful array of female fronted aggression that
will give their predecessors a run for their money.
brainchild of vocalist Lindy Gabriel, Gabriel And The Apocalypse independently
put out 2 releases which were backed by numerous national support tours around
the United States. Their intense and and professional style videos also paved
the way for the group to become an underground sensation. It was this
self produced success that led GATA to ink a deal with Pavement Entertainment

band to new heights with major worldwide distribution and exposure. To kick off
