Madman's Lullaby / Press

“It is a rare treat to "discover" a new band that can really sink its musical claws into you. "Unhinged" is a solid old school rocker definitely worth checking out. I hope more people stumble onto this one, as I'm sure hard rock aficianos will find a lot to like about it.””

“Rating: An excellent introduction to the band for those who may be experiencing them for the first time, and a must-have release from 2014. Crank this to 8!”

“While Frontiers Records is in the business of resurrecting the careers of notable 80's/early 90's melodic rockers like Stryper, Night Ranger, Winger, and others, Kivel Records is in the business of seeking out and developing NEW melodic rock stars, such as LaValle, Tango Down, and the label's newest project, Madman's Lullaby. While certainly not a new band (they have been around since 2007), Madman's Lullaby has released the best album of their career thus far with the solid melodic rocker, Unhinged. While no one comparison will pin the band down, think of the bluesy approach utilized to such great effect by Badlands, then mix in the melodic sensibilities of a Lynch Mob, the bottom-ended riffing of Black Label Society, and a vocal approach that reminds me so much of what Robin Kyle Basauri did with Red Sea and Die Happy that I actually did a quick double-take when I first popped this record in to make sure I hadn't missed something somewhere. Top it off with top-notch production”

“Madman’s Lullaby | Unhinged by Justin Gaines - Senior Columnist/News Editor – Madman’s Lullaby UnhingedOriginally self-released last year (and now given a proper CD release by the Kivel label), Unhinged is the third album from Bay Area hard rockers Madman’s Lullaby. They’re a relatively recent band, but their sound is anything but, drawing on the heavier, bluesier side of the ‘80s “hair metal” sound. Think Lynch Mob and Badlands, though not quite in that same league. This thing hits like a sledgehammer. Forget subtlety; you’re getting thick, crunching guitar riffs, catchy but heavy rhythms, very powerful vocals and some seriously angry lyrics. It’s still that old school party rock at heart, only a heavier, nastier brand of party rock. Vocalist Dave Friday brings a dark soulfulness to these songs, and when he’s done bludgeoning us with riffs, guitarist Mr. Brett delivers some wicked solos. The lyrics get a bit over the top at times with the whole angry/reven”

“I had not heard of Madman's Lullaby prior to listening to this album (which came to me as an Amazon recommendation, so I listened to the samples and decided to give it a whirl). Overall, this is a pretty damn good album. It certainly has an 80's / 90's flavor to it: as one reviewer put it, they sound a bit like a pissed off, grittier version of Tesla with a Soundgarden grunginess to it (particularly tracks like "Gasoline," "Alice Doesn't Here Any More," and "Out Go Your Lights." I love the vocals and the guitar work is excellent throughout. It is a rare treat to "discover" a new band that can really sink its musical claws into you. "Unhinged" is a solid old school rocker definitely worth checking out. I hope more people stumble onto this one, as I'm sure hard rock aficianos will find a lot to like about it.”

“Madman's Lullaby's New Album "New Beginning" comes blaring out of my speakers like a pneumatic power hammer blasting thru metal ramparts. I'm totally enthralled with this first tune Devil Inside" & The crunchy guitars, punchy percussion and powerful vocals.Mr. Brett is the savage samurai on lead guitar,Mike Tersigni's tight, disciplined and systematic bass playing and Eric Arbizu's blistering work on the drum kit give this band just a touch of that metal resonance. The album is very strong with no fillers to be found here 4.5 out of 5 stars”
