Death Alley Motor Cult / Press

“I’ve been asked several times who Death Alley Motor Cult sounds like. Well, they sound like Death Alley Motor Cult. Raw, brutal, in your face unabashed rock n’ roll. This new CD carries on with this sound, it makes your heart race and gets your passions all fired up. Solid production added to accomplished song writing plus outstanding musicians make this Death Alley Motor Cult CD a MUST have.”

“With ‘Dead To The World’ Death Alley Motor Cult produce a great album. Merging the ‘zombie vibe’ from White Zombie with the crossover post punk choruses from Killing Joke producing songs that ooze raw, adrenalin packed, fist pumping action as tracks like ‘Devil Sex’, ‘American Nightmare’, ‘13 Steps’ and ‘Dead To The World’ kick in and are guaranteed to put a smile on the face of the hardened Zombie fan.”

“Local masters of metal Death Alley Motor Cult roar back into Starline tonight, celebrating the release of a new CD, "The Outlaw Chronicles." Born from influences like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Rob Zombie, Death Alley Motor Cult are vets of Fresno's scene. They've got the bombastic rock sound, the look to match and band members with names like The Falcon and Death Alley Dave. That metal enough for you? The band is looking forward to a big 2012 with tours planned in California, Arizona and Nevada. Its new album will be available digitally on sites such as iTunes, Amazon and Rhapsody. Plus, look out for it on sale as a flash drive with MP3 files. That's how the band sold versions of its previous album, "Dead to the World." ”

“Track number four was called Moving In Stereo. An addictive and rhythmic distorted guitar solo gets the show on the road. A charismatic drum beat gets involved adding a new dimension to the track. The addition of the vocals brings solidity to the track and reinforces it as a true rock song. They sound good but raw which makes you take in every lyric. A striking guitar solo rears its head taking center stage for a short time, long enough to scramble your brain. Sometimes you have to just sit back and admire at talent and that’s what I did here. The variations in tempo work well and the vocals adapt perfectly to the change in dynamics during the track. Really liked what I heard here. I will be the first to admit this isn’t my preferred genre but there’s something about these guys that turned my head. Like I said above this is only a selection of what the band have to offer, get onto their site and check out the other eight tracks on offer. ”

“The band is made up of Dave Askew (lead guitar/vocals), Shawn Baird (rhythm guitar), Chris Campise (bass) and Shawn VanWyhe (drums). We talked to VanWyhe to learn more about D.A.M.C. What's the difference between Dead Garden and Death Alley Motor Cult? It is a whole new monster. The songs are heavier, have a better groove, bigger attitude, just four crazy music freaks having the time of our lives! SPECIAL TO THE BEE Death Alley Motor Cult is scheduled to play at Starline on Jan. 22. Break down your sound for us, please. Throw in old school influences like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden with fresh influences like Rob Zombie and Dope with a touch of The Cars and I think you have a pretty good idea. Tell us all about the new CD. The new CD was recorded live in the studio, old-school style, with our buddy Peter Wolf over at Wolfsound Studios. He did an amazing job of capturing that D.A.M.C. sound. It contains five blistering songs and each song has its own video to complement it. ”
