INGLORIOUS Launch Lyric Video & Cover Art

Artist: 
New Studio Album: “Inglorious II” 12th May 2017
 
“This band are actually glorious! Amazing singer, amazing band. The best British band I’ve seen since…I could say the Darkness, but I really mean Led Zeppelin.” – Legendary producer Kevin “Caveman” Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Rush) who mixed “Inglorious II” https://youtu.be/FON64HTf0YM
 
“The future of rock and roll.” - Paul Anthony, Planet Rock radio
 
Frontiers Music Srl are pleased to announce the release of the second Inglorious album, “Inglorious II”, on May 12, 2017! The band have also announced their new guitar player.
 
New Lyric Video: 
 

 
September 2016 saw Inglorious base themselves in Liverpool to work on the follow up to their 2016 eponymous debut album. Produced by the band and mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith), this new album is set to further enhance the standing of this remarkable band. From the body blow riffs of “Read All About It,” to the beautiful melodies of upcoming first single “I Don’t Need Your Loving”, from the groove of “High Class Woman” to the classic feeling ballad “Making Me Pay”, this is an album that shows the bands influences stem from iconic rock and roll shrine of rock albums from the 1970s – many years before the band members were born – merged with a truly contemporary feel. Driving riffs and instant melodies all overlaid with the unique and powerful vocals of Nathan James.
 
Nathan James on “Inglorious II”: “It came together very organically after spending time touring together and felt great. We knew we were making an album this time too! We focused on getting our sounds just right so we could get into the studio and out in the least time possible. Between Adde's flat in Malmö, Sweden and Colin’s family home in Somerset, England, this album came together quickly. We spent three weekends in Somerset, writing in a kind of 9-5 fashion, whereby we knew we were at work. Then after a lovely home cooked dinner we would relax, have a few beers and balance out our hard work, the environment is so important to be creative and we had it good!”

INGLORIOUS - Inglorious (Review)

information persons: 
content: 
90%
Produced By: 
Inglorious
Running Time: 
50
Release Date: 
2016
Released: 
Worldwide
Musical Style: 
Hard Rock
Score: 
90
Label: 
Frontiers
Artist: 
 
This British band are hailed as the heirs to the classic rock throne, as currently held by the likes of Deep Purple, Whitesnake and Rainbow.
Fronted by one of the biggest voices in rock today, Nathan James dominates this recoding with some truly remarkable vocal acrobatics. From a deep booming baritone to high pitch wailing and everything in between, he is all over this material like few others I can recall in recent times.
 
The style of James can be something that requires adjusting to – when you have such a unique voice, there will be some that don’t connect – but then he so suits the material here it doesn’t take long to warm up to him. Think Richie Kotzen meets David Coverdale.
 
But he isn’t the lone star here – the performances within this album from the band are quite special. There’s a certain organic energy that radiates from this record, yet at the same time, the production seems quite polished.
The twin guitar attack is relentless and the rhythm section delivers the thunder to the lightning of James’ dominant vocals.
 
I love the production on this album. It’s sharp, it’s crisp, but it is also warm and inviting. A lot of time and went into this record and it shows.
What I struggled with to start with was the pacing of the album (yes, the tempo strikes again) and that issue remains as the only hesitation here.
While this album has a penchant for slower songs, most of them work. I’d prefer a couple more ‘up’ tunes, but the quality of the performances and the songs themselves make up for this and dare I say that those that have an ear for the slow and moody will absolutely love what’s on offer here.
 
After a build-up that would rival Rainbow and Deep Purple for mood and anticipation, Until I Die storms to life. It’s a mid-tempo hard hitting rocker with a terrific Zeppelinesque groove.
Breakaway is a storming fast paced Rainbow/Purple style rocker with organ and screaming vocals – everything you could ask for.
High Flying Gypsy turns the tempo back a notch, but is driven by a big riff and some nice soloing. The vocals wail of course.
Holy Water is utterly brilliant. The slow tempo suits the mood and all I can hear is classic Deep Purple or Coverdale here. It’s just immense. James electrifies with a really soulful vocal. It’s very Richie Kotzen and sounds like it could come from any of his solo albums. It’s a classic 70s swagger-n-blues tune. Very cool and the chorus is simple, but high impact.
 
Warning takes a while to kick into high gear, but once rolling, delivers a wailing tempo boost when needed. The twin guitar attack delivers riffs in both ears while the production is just perfect and James’ vocals are brilliant.
Bleed For You is the third slowish tune in a row, which would normally test my patience, but its simply too good a song to worry. It’s a heavy ballad of sorts, the vocals are once again quite extraordinary.
Girl Got A Gun is the same slow pace again, perhaps this is one slow track too many, but the chorus comes to life and it’s still a very good song.
You're Mine stays within the album’s overall mid-pace tempo. This is a bit of Zeppelinesque number. It’s a decent hard rocker with more Kotzen familiarities with the vocals and some touches of Coverdale too.
 
Inglorious is a heavy, slow rocker with another Zeppelin influenced 70s riff and some variety within the song, but overall it’s slow once again and the album could really use a lift in tempo.
Wake isn’t it. The song is an acoustic ballad with a lot of class though, a really big soulful vocal again from James.
Unaware is a heavy but melodic heavy groove that is for me probably missing a stronger chorus.

The first half of the album is flawless as far as I can see and the second half still sounds amazing, but suffers from lack of pace and a couple of songs that match the outstanding quality within the first half.
It all comes down to the tempo – only 1 or 2 really fired up, fast paced tracks. More would have been preferred, but at least the songs are consistently good.
 
The album pays homage to the artists mentioned as influences and Nathan James is a monster vocalist with a strong Richie Kotzen / David Coverdale vibe. The rest of the band are no slouches either – dynamic performances all-round and a very convincing debut.

INGLORIOUS - Inglorious (Track By Track)

Artist: 
 
So Inglorious are the new hope for British classic hard rock. We’ve already got several bands doing the classic 70s rock thing (The Answer, Rival Sons, Black Star Riders), but no one that’s really doing the whole Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Bad Company, Aerosmith vibe which is what these guys state as their primary influences. And it works.
 
Formed in February 2014, the band is fronted by Nathan James, who made a name for himself having sung for the multi-platinum selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Scorpions guitar legend Uli Jon Roth. 
The debut album has a monster classic rock production, especially with the rhythm section constantly bombarding you. James is pretty much everything you’d expect from a frontman hyped as an upcoming great. He has some immense lungs.
 
The album is out February 19 via Frontiers. Full review to follow, but here’s a quick look at the tracks:
 
After a build-up that would rival Rainbow and Deep Purple for mood and anticipation, Until I Die storms to life. It’s a mid-tempo hard hitting rocker with a terrific Zeppelinesque groove.
 
02.Breakaway is a storming fast paced Rainbow/Purple style rocker with organ and screaming vocals – everything you could ask for.
 
03.High Flying Gypsy turns the tempo back a notch, but is driven by a big riff and some nice soloing. The vocals wail of course.
 
04.Holy Water is a slow bluesy rock tune, with a really soulful vocal. It’s very Richie Kotzen and sounds like it could come from any of his solo albums. It’s a classic 70s swagger-n-blues tune. Very cool.
 
05.Warning takes a while to kick into high gear, but once rolling, delivers a wailing tempo boost when needed.
 
06.Bleed For You takes us back to a slow tempo. It’s a heavy ballad of sorts, the vocals are quite extraordinary.
 
07.Girl Got A Gun is the same slow pace again, perhaps up a notch for the decent chorus, but a bit slow.
 
08.You're Mine lifts the tempo slightly more again – we’re at mid-pace now. A decent hard rocker with more Kotzen familiarities with the vocals and some touches of Coverdale too.
 
09.Inglorious is a heavy, slow rocker with a good riff and some variety within the song, but slow again.
 
The first minute of Unaware is a slow piano intro before it fires up into a heavy but melodic heavy groover.
 
11.Wake is an acoustic ballad to close out, with a really big soulful vocal again from James.
 
So that’s the album. It certainly pays homage to the artists mentioned as influences and Nathan James is a monster vocalist with a strong Richie Kotzen / David Coverdale vibe.
The rest of the band are no slouches either – dynamic performances. Very convincing for a debut.
 
It all comes down to the tempo though – only 1 or 2 really fired up, fast paced tracks. Much more listening over the next week to see how the songs grow and last with me.

One On One With Mitch Lafon - FRANCIS BUCHHOLZ (Scorpions) & INGLORIOUS

Artist: 
 
Former SCORPIONS bassist FRANCIS BUCHHOLZ as well as INGLORIOUS lead singer NATHAN JAMES join Mitch for episode 189 of One On One With Mitch Lafon. In the shows first interview, long-time SCORPIONS bassist Francis Buchholz talks about his current Temple Of Rock band with Michael Schenker and Herman Rarebell, their current album Spirit On A Mission, getting back into music after his long post-Scorpions hiatus, working with Uli Jon Roth, the SCORPIONS 50th anniversary deluxe re-issues and not being invited to participate, the passing of Jimmy Bain, the Love At First Sting recording sessions, his favorite Scorpions album and much more

On taking a break from the music industry: "I had been touring for about twenty years with the Scorpions. I just needed some time off to look after my family, but the main reason was a disagreement within the band about management, about the future and about the past.. I didn't feel comfortable with the new people coming in."

The SCORPIONS 50th Anniversary re-issues and bonus interviews: "I knew about the interviews because Herman told me, but the record company just didn't want to invite me and I didn't want to run after them."

On Jimmy Bain's passing: "Very sad news... I was very sad about that. He's a lovely guy."

In the episode's second interview, Mitch sits down with upcoming singer Nathan James from INGLORIOUS. The two discuss the band's self-tiltled debut album, Nathan's career up to this point and being the singer on Uli Jon Roth's Scorpions Revisited album, and much more.

Quote from the interview: On getting into a band situation rather than move forward as a solo artist: "It's what I've wanted to do for a long time. I started recording a solo record with some amazing musicians. It was a great sounding album, but I was listening to it and I thought, 'I'd rather be Robert Plant than Meatloaf'."

February 2016 Set For INGLORIOUS Debut

Artist: 
 
 
RELEASED BY FRONTIERS MUSIC SRL
FRIDAY 19th FEBRUARY 2016
 
 
Frontiers Music Srl are pleased to announce the debut album from Britain’s highly anticipated and freshest new Hard Rock band INGLORIOUS. The self-titled, 11-track album will be released on Friday 19th February 2016.
Pre-orders for INGLORIOUS' self-titled debut album can be placed on both Amazon and iTunes. All digital pre-orders include an instant download of "Breakaway", with more tracks being made available for download with pre-orders in the coming weeks and months leading up to release.
Inglorious are five young men with a mutual love and respect of the classics of Hard Rock music, big guitar riffs, and soulful vocals.  Their influences stem from iconic rock and roll shrine of Rock albums from the 1970s – many years before the band members were born.

The same albums that have inspired generations of musicians and performers are noticeably evident when you listen to the Inglorious debut album.  This is the music they were born to play together - inspired by bands in the classic rock genre as diverse as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Bad Company, Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, to name a few.
Formed in February 2014, the band is fronted by Nathan James, who made a name for himself having sung for the multi-platinum selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Scorpions guitar legend Uli Jon Roth.  Nathan was looking for like-minded musicians that desired to make incredible rock music in a very honest fashion.
Nathan thought to himself, “Why are those classic albums so awesome?” He realised it was because “the musicians were recording in an organic way; they could track it live and capture amazing energy.”
 

 
“Not only in rock but in Motown and even classical music they tracked everyone in the room at the same time,” adds Nathan.  “The air movement from a bass drum, that same excitement you get when you perform, and that's exactly how I wanted the album to feel."
Nathan wanted all his fellow musicians in the room at the same time, no click tracks, no auto tune and no overdubs. He wasn't willing to compromise.  Says Nathan - "For so long people have been hiding mistakes, singers using auto tune to make them sound perfect, double tracking to make it sound bigger and using click to play in time. There is none of that on this album.
This record is about vibe, feeling, excitement, energy and performance of songs we all wrote together. That's how it came out that day and it will never be exactly the same again. We captured a series of moments that make up our debut album."

Inglorious is composed of rhythm guitarist Wil Taylor, lead guitarist Andreas Eriksson, bassist Colin Parkinson, and drummer Phil Beaver. Wil, from the Northeast of England, is the youngest member of the band whose heroes include Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge), Joe Satriani and Steve Lukather (Toto).
Colin and Phil both hail from Somerset, and have played together in bands for 17 years (at one point, both were signed to Mick Fleetwood’s label while Phil was still at school). Phil's Bonham-like groove, great snare work and exciting fills, combined with Wil's solid bluesy rhythm playing and Colin's fat, gritty bass sound, make for a formidable rhythm section.

Andreas was the final piece of the puzzle - a lead guitar player that shared all the same influences, could command a stage and was able to track the whole album the way Nathan wanted. Guitarist Andreas Eriksson played in bands from his home country of Sweden for many years, and has taken influences from all the greats, making him one of the most musically well rounded guitar players in the contemporary rock scene. His bluesy, melodic, soulful playing compliments Nathan’s soaring vocals. The pair is 2016’s version of the Toxic Twins. 
The musicians instantly jelled, both musically and as friends. They recorded the album over the period of one month in Buckinghamshire. "In the day we were writing and recording in the live room. At night we would inflate our air beds and sleep in the same room we had been making music and sweating in all day, I even used my Marshall stack as a headboard," Wil recalls.

Andreas flew back and forth from Sweden during the recording process. Says Andreas - “For me it was such a special experience because I was in a foreign country with guys I hardly knew, recording songs I had only learnt two weeks prior. It was so challenging doing it the way we did but it was the most awesome time."
The whole band wrote the album with a few guest writers including Al Pitrelli (Megadeth, Alice Cooper, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Joel Hoekstra (Night Ranger, Whitesnake) and Neil Fairclough (Queen).
After meeting with a few producers, Inglorious decided to produce the album themselves. Chris Kimsey, who has worked with The Who and the Rolling Stones, said "There is nothing for me to do, you guys are doing what I would tell you to do already." High praise, indeed.
