Watch Graham Bonnet Perform Michael Schenker Group’s “Assault Attack” With Vio-lence, Bleeding Through, Armored Saint, Etc. Members

Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head) has shared a quarantine cover of the Michael Schenker Group’s “Assault Attack.” The track also features Graham Bonnet (ex-Rainbow, ex-Michael Schenker Group), Marta Demmel (Bleeding Through), John Tempesta (The Cult), Joey Vera (Armored Saint, Fates Warning), and Mike Tempesta (ex-Powerman 5000).

Phil Demmel commented:

“I knew I had wanted to jam on a tune with Johnny but I hadn’t came across which one. I knew he was a huge Cozy Powell fan and we both love Schenker so I proposed the instrumental MSG tune ‘Into the Arena’. He had done something similar to that tune previously with his brother Mike and suggested the banger track ‘Assault Attack’, off a record featuring vocalist Graham Bonnet and a friend of John’s, Ted Mckenna (who had tragically passed away a few years back). He then (kinda) joked about asking Graham to sing on it then reached out to him and made it happen! Marta nailed the keys and vocal harmonies and our good friend and incredible bassist Joey Vera from the legendary Armored Saint not only laid down the bass tracks, but also provided the mix for this. Mike and I both played our Schenker tribute guitars Originally aired for Metal Injections ‘Slay at Home’ fest and video edit by Frank Godla. Thanks to Conrad for getting us Graham’s vocal/vid, and to Joey Vera for the mix!”

Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.

Dani Filth (Cradle Of Filth) Talks About Scrapped Temple Of The Black Moon Supergroup With Ex-Anthrax, Enslaved, The Cult, Etc. Members

Dani Filth (Cradle Of Filth, Devilment) recently discussed some of his favorite albums with HMV, and during the interview he talked a little bit about his Temple Of The Black Moon project, which also featured King (ex-Gorgoroth), Ice Dale (Enslaved), Rob Caggiano (ex-Anthrax, Volbeat) and John Tempesta (The Cult, etc.). Unfortunately the band kind of got scrapped, but Filth did say he may have Devilment cover those songs at some point.

Filth said the following:

“I was doing a band called Temple Of The Black Moon with King from Gorgoroth, Ice Dale from Enslaved, Rob Caggiano from Anthrax (although he’s now joined Volbeat) and John Tempesta from The Cult and White Zombie – and we were working on a record.

Actually, all the drums and the bass parts are still sitting with a record label. This is my opinion, when Rob left Anthrax the manager shelved it because he didn’t want Rob being distracted from earning loads of money for it. If that makes any sense. This was only a couple of years ago that it was recorded, and it’s a brilliant album.

The working album title was ‘CNT (all that’s missing is you)’ – it would have been amazing! I don’t know if it’s ever going to see the light of day, we wrote ten songs over roughly a four-year span and they’re all amazing – in fact I want Devilment to cover all of it – it might be the only way around the problem to be fair.

The manager just sat on it. The drums have been recorded in LA, and the bass. It would probably be too late now if it ever came out, it would sound primeval by then. It was cool – really rocky. It’s got an Anthrax and The Cult meets me and Gorgoroth, plus Enslaved feeling, and the guy from Dimmu Borgir was going to do keys on it.”

Head to HMV to read the whole interview about his favorite albums.
