Death Angel and Bad Seed Rising have indelible marks on the history books in heavy metal / hard rock history, for being the youngest bands to have debut albums on our top 100 albums of the year.

 

Death Angel’s debut “The Ultra-Violence” was unleashed on Planet Metal in 1987, and almost 3o years later. Bad Seed Rising unleashed on planet metal on September 30th, 2016.

 

Bad Seed Rising’s “Awake in Color” has been one of the most anticpated albums of 2016 since the band caught a big buzzzzzz amongst the readers of THE GODLY METAL MAIDENS webzine, and readers of the essential read of the webzine Sonic Cathedral.

 

So what was the buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz about the band back then in Septembeer 15th, 2012.

 

There was a new band that has the possibility of being the new Girlschoool, Rock Goddess, or Crucified Barbara in the actual classic true traditional heavy metal / hard rock genre.

 

The name of that all-time classic song is a called

Bad Seed Rising “I Won’t Be The One”

 

And that song still is in heavy rotation on our play list. Even at the time of this September 30th, 2016 CD Review, which I am writing on October 16th, 2016….and the countdown for the top 100 heavy metal albums and top 100 hard rock albums of 2016, for our first deadline is October 30th, 2016, the second list is on December 24th 0f each year, the third list is on Januray 1st, of each year, and since the music we cover is heavy metal/ hard rock, in the Black Sabbath/ Led Zepplin vein, each year on Febuary 13. We have our final top 100 albums of the year list done by then.

 

The reason I brought that up, in the previous paragraph, is because originally on September 30th, 2016 my records shopped did not have the Bad Seed Rising “Awake In Color” CD in Stock, for the first day. I would have love to have been a first day buyer of this album then, but I never give up, and yesterday on Saturday October 16,2016, I usually hit the record shoppes 123 times a year, every Monday, Friday and Saturday. And the concert halls around 80 times a year. Back in 1986-1998 I attended concerts 320 times a year during that era….!!!!!  I am slowing down…!!!!! ha ha.

 

In all honesty if Bad Seed Rising wrote a full album of “I Won’t Be The One”….I would say they are the best band of all-time since say the Runaway/ Girlschool/ Edge of Paradise, Halestorm and the likes.

 

As far as the album Bad Seed Rising “Awake In Colors” the band is wise beyond there years…Only 10 songs on this!

and not the fill the whole CD with songs no matter what, for 79 miunets and 59 seconds, that has plague CD age era heavy metal/ hard rock and heavy metal.

 

If you look at our top 100 / top 500 and top 700 albums of all-time list. Most of those albums are all killer with no filler. Bad Seed Rising “Awake In Color” is a Top 100 album for the year 2016.

 

Francheska Pastor will be added into the KICK*ASS*METAL / KICK*ASS Hall of fame, just for the achievement of having one of the most KICK*ASS songs of all-time…!!!!

 

I have gotten a lot of spins of the Bad Seed Rising “Awake in Color” under my bullet-belt already since I got it last night.

 

Last night was a binge of

 

Steel Panther

 

Quiet Riot “Metal Health”

 

David Bowie “Ziggy Stardust”

with

Bad Seed Rising “Awake In Color” dominating the CD player last night.

 

The discussion yesterday was why no massive coverage of Steel Panther…..ha ha!!!!! That is simple because criteria for top 100 artist and bands of a year/ decade/ quarter century/ century and all-time, is lyric writing.

Lyric writing is just an important, as song-writing, as well as architecture of a song. Steel Panther is fun, but after the 20th energy drink, (these are really bad for you…legal department and editor)  I decided we, were pumped for this record, and I really enjoy this debut album from Bad Seed Rising.

 

One of the criteria I look for in covering a band, is which bands are going to be around in 35 years. I love to be a fan of a band for a life-time that has a perfect career. Instead of just collecting good albums by bands that just have that one fluke release.

 

I will be happy to listen to this with my family, and my relatives, and pass it down to my children and to their children, and hopefully in 210 years…I can have this album in a library of music of KICK*ASS, something like a Rock and Roll / Heavy Metal Hall of fame, but HEAVIER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Easily one of the best hard rock / heavy rock albums of the year 2016….A TOP 100 album, for the year 2016.

 

What I love about Bad Seed Rising “Awake In Color” is that it is ALL KILLER AND NO FILLER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Love this album and looking forward to “Awake in Color” successor…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

As far as being rock stars, Bad Seed Rising star does shine bright, and know I their music will easily survive the test of time, if the band ever decides on the METAL GODS route….!!!! Just delivery KICK*ASS 10 scorchers, with sharp effective riffing like “I Won’t Be The One” and an album like that would rule beyond belief !!!!!!

 

Bands live and die by there song-wrting and Bad Seed Rising, knows how to write a KILLER SONG with HOOKS, MELODY, TALENT and CONVICTION !!!!!!

 

I usually let a KICK*ASS*METAL reader know what top-tier to put an album that is held in highest of praise. Bad Seed Rising I would easily say file Bad Seed Rising “Awake In Color” between heavy rotations of Girlschool “Guilty As Sin, and  Halestorm “Halestorm”….!!!!!!!!!!!!
