So you KIND OF WONDERING why One-Eyed Doll is featured In KICK*ASS*METAL. In the Upper RIGHT hand corner of this webzine you may or may not notice the words World-Class…and in the center of the page you may or may not notice the words KICK*ASS. We specialize in GOTHIC/AVANT GARDE music across the spectrum of classical, rock, metal and Avant-garde. Good luck telling me that they have no business in the pages of KICK*ASS*METAL. It is because of bands such as One-Eyed Doll why this place exist in the 1st place.

All things KICK*ASS

All things BAD*ASS

There is a Webster dictionary definition for the term KICK*ASS and there was just this photo

 

one-eyeddollkickassmetalthemostimportantbandofthe21stcentury9998989a2015

The definition for KICK*ASS is heavier and faster riffs, more intense and World-Class song-writing with more originality in the song-writing lyrics and music. It is where a band improves upon there influences to create a artistic vision all there own.

 

No matter the decade or century. There are only a handful of bands heavier and more devastating that One-Eyed. I am not sure if One-Eyed Doll planned it that way, or if they are just naturally that intense. I will forever have to think. Why this band is so heavy. I know the answer, but I want every KICK*ASS*METAL reader to experience One-Eyed Doll for themselves. Keep in mind.

 

One-Eyed Doll is just one of The Greatest Live Bands of all-time. TOP 10…!!!  The July 24th, 2016 Concert @ The Token Lounge was 110% KICK*ASS I was glad to see the concert start of with Committed. Totally whipped the crowd into a frenzy, and from that point on. FULL-THROTTLE KICK*ASS Mayhem, with perfect song-writing dynamics, and World-Class showmanship from Kimberly Freeman and Junior, this concert was a intense emotional roller coaster ride. One-Eyed Doll are masters of song-writing. I have a more intense respect and appreciation for One-Eyed Doll, ever since this concert.

When it comes to authenticity, charisma, stage presence, musicianship, virtuosity as it serves the song. One-Eyed Doll Kimberly and Junior are the Real Deal.

 

The difference between the September 2015 and the July 2016 concert was

For the July 24th, 2016 Concert Kimberly Freeman Used a White and Black Tregan Guitar with the One-Eyed Doll and Witches Logo on the Guitar

And for her ONE-OF-A-KIND Bone Crunching and MOLTEN METAL Signature Sound. Kimberly Freeman uses Black Star Amplification

Guitar Tone aside. Kimberly Freeman is just one of the most original guitarist/ W0rld-Class Vocalist around. Top notch RIFF writer, and awesome bone crunching rhythm guitarist! Song-writer SECOND TO NONE and PEERLEES, even if you know a bands influences, some artist are just one-of-a-kind with there own sound and signature style.

 

Best LIVE BANDS OF ALL-TIME. One-Eyed Doll is one of them. There is excellent introductions and in depth explanations of what the songs are all about. And no matter the song and its subject matter, nothing is held back…!!! The audience is asked to participate in some of the songs, and the audience is asked to sing along to some choruses of the songs. Making a One-Eyed Doll Concert a true one-of-a-kind experience. One-Eyed Doll will forever leave a indelible mark on your psyche as they have left a indelible mark on the history books, with One-Eyed Doll “Witches” being the greatest CONCEPT ALBUM OF ALL-TIME, and lets not forget the fact that 3 of the top 10 and top 20 concept albums of all-time happened in 2015 !!!!!!!!!!

 

One-Eyed Doll has to be IMMORTALIZED ON DVD for the era between the Witches album and todays news date August 2017. I have never debated the GOLDEN AGE or VINTAGE ERA of this band, I am just realizing the band has been on a tear/ tear up the planet metal for World Domination. But the era of the “Witches” album has been a KICK*ASS era for myself.

 

 

The Highlight of this concert was the One-Eyed Doll’s Pink Floyd cover version of “Comfortably Numb” where the band performed as a 4 piece a quartet and Junior was the LEAD GUITARITST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Kimberly Freeman executed perfect melodicism and sang the “Comfortably Numb” with TOTAL PASSION AND CONVICTION, and the Guitar Solo Junior played was jaw-dropping as it was mind-blowing…!!!! As a hard rock/heavy metal fan since 1978, I even learned a couple of cool guitar hero tricks watching this concert, and it is really awesome to STILL LEARN SOMETHING NEW BAD*ASS and KICK*ASS every day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The Highlight of any One-Eyed Doll concert is meeting the band after the show and I got to meet Aaron Bordner, since One-Eyed Doll “Witches” has a very special place within the KICK*ASS*METAL heavy metal hall of fame, and the KICK*ASS*METAL OFFICES.

 

For those not UP ON ALL THINGS KICK*ASS…we will get you up to speed !!!

 

ONE-EYED DOLL “WITCHES” IS KICK*ASS*METAL’s # 1 RANK/ RATED CONCEPT ALBUM OF ALL-TIME in the hard rock genre. Which is just a official way of saying the Greatest Concept album of all-time!!!

ONE-EYED DOLL IS THE GOLD STANDARD
