Alice Cooper’s Nightmare Castle Pinball Machine Coming This Fall

Spooky Pinball LLC have announced that they will be releasing a new Alice Cooper pinball machine, which they are calling Alice Cooper’s Nightmare Castle this fall.Yo can check out a teaser for that below:

Says Spooky Pinball LLC commented:

“YES! We are doing Alice Cooper’s Nightmare Castle. Here’s what we can say for now. Lots of classic and modern Alice Cooper music! NOT a “greatest hits” package, (of course it has Coop favorites) but we selected what fits an awesome Spooky monster filled adventure game. Matt Montgomery [aka Piggy D (Rob Zombie)] is doing some awesome instrumental spooky ambiance music. Jeff Zornow is the artist doing the bad ass retro comic style artwork you see in the backglass. That theme carries through the entire game.”

Alice Cooper’s Original Band To Reunite For New Album

In a recent interview with The Weekender, Alice Cooper revealed his plans reunite the surviving members of his original band for his new album, which is supposed to have a similar sound as 1971’s “Killer.” You can see some of what he said about that below.

prima

“We’ve always been a hard rock band, guitar rock, and I’ll never give that up. But every once in a while, though, there’s just a flavor of what album do we want to go to here to give it that flavor. And it seems to be going toward the Killer album. And I kind of go, that album, let’s revisit the sound of that album and what we were kind of thinking. You can never go back and totally recapture it, but you can certainly look at the elements that made that album work the way it did.”

Cooper said drummer Neal Smith and guitarist Mike Bruce have already contributed some material for the effort:

“We worked together in Phoenix for about two weeks just writing songs and demoing songs. And you never know which ones are going to make the album, but I said let’s do that,”

On top of this, bassist Dennis Dunaway is set to work on new stuff as well. Cooper also added:

“It’s fun to go back and work with guys you haven’t worked with in awhile. It’s not trying to recapture your youth. It’s trying to recapture a sound. And it’s a very elusive sound.”
