On Stage: Steve Forbert keeps on rockin’ steady

Steve Forbert

Steve Forbert has been recording and playing music for four decades and has reached a point in his career where he knows how to stay busy but not too busy.

Forbert averages around four shows a year in this area and is a regular at the Kennett Flash. On September 16, the veteran singer-songwriter will return for a show at the Sellersville Theater (24 West Temple Avenue, Sellersville, 215-257-5808, www.st94.com).

“I’ve been making plans to go back to England, Scandinavia and Holland,” said Forbert, during a phone interview last week from his home at the Jersey Shore. “And, I want to finish the book I’ve been trying to write for the last two years.”

Forbert also has been active with his soon-to-be-released album “Flying at Night.”

“I’m also doing a U.K.-only promotion tour for my new album in November,” said Forbert. “I wrote and recorded it with Anthony Crawford.  It’s a good feeling album and I’ll have some on sale in Sellersville.”

It’s pretty safe to say that singer-songwriter Steve Forbert is never going to oversaturate the market with his recorded output.

Forbert released his last album ‘Compromised” on November 6, 2015, via Rock Ridge Music — 34 years after he released his debut album “Alive On Arrival.” In the three decades-plus, he has only released 14 studio albums.

Recorded in Woodstock and Cape Cod and produced by Forbert along with John Simon, “Compromised” features a healthy dose of the singer-songwriter’s aggressive, roots-rock music.

“Compromised” collaborators include bassist Joey Spampinato (NRBQ), drummer Lou Cataldo (The Freeze), pianist/trumpeter Kami Lyle, and keyboardist Robbie Kondor.

“With ‘Over with You,’ the songs had been building up for three years,” said Forbert. “Ben Harper had rented a studio and had time left that he wasn’t able to use. So, he offered to let me use that time. I was ready. I had to be ready.”

Forbert headed off alone to Carriage House studio in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake neighborhood to work with Grammy Award-winning producer Chris Goldsmith.

 “I was working with musicians I had never worked with before,” said Forbert. “I wanted to do something different so I trusted the producer. We were in the studio three days and did all the songs. I flew in on Sunday, checked out the studio Monday, recorded Tuesday through Thursday and was back home in Nashville Friday. It was my first time to do a record like that. I think the immediacy helped.

“The new album was the opposite of the last. I contacted John Simon first and we set up some sessions. We did some recording with John in Woodstock and then he went to Florida. So, I went to Cape Cod and did some more recording with John Evans producing.

“I worked a lot on the album from October to January. We had to go to Cape Cod right after that huge snowstorm in Boston. We did a few bonus tracks — Americana versions of some of the things on the album.”

Forbert has a very solid fan base and that’s fine with him.

“What I do is more about songs,” said Forbert. “I just do what I’ve always done. Lyrics — and topics — move with me through life. I don’t pay attention to fads.

“I’m not a jam band or an act that plays for big crowds. It’s folk-rock and mostly acoustic. I rarely go out with a band. In Sellersville, I’ll have Mark Stuart with me on lead guitar — but it’s still like a solo show. A solo show is more intimate — and, it can be spontaneous.

“When I play solo, I can play songs from my whole catalogue.  I just can’t play the same show over and over again. I do have songs that I know people want to hear me play such as ‘Going to Laurel’ and ‘Romeo’s Tune’ so I don’t want to exclude them.”

Forbert’s show at Sellersville, which has Joe Crookston as the opening act, will get underway at 8 p.m. Tickets are $29.50 and $45.

Book of Love

Book of Love

Book of Love formed in Philadelphia in the mid-1980’s and immediately won over fans with its electronic/synth-pop music and its ability to come out with well-crafted dance hits.

The group racked up a string of hits over the next 10 years — and then disbanded.

Now, Book of Love is back.

Book of Love will be performing September 17 at World Café Live (3025 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, 215-222-1400, www.worldcafelive.com) as part of its 30th Anniversary Reunion Tour. This year also marks the three-decade anniversary of the band’s eponymous debut album.

“MMXVI – Book of Love – The 30th Anniversary Collection,” which was released in July on Sire/Rhino Records, features re-mastered versions of the band’s greatest hits and never-before released demos. This digital collection will also feature two new songs – “All Girl Band” and “Something Good” – which are the band’s first new recordings in over 15 years.

One of the premiere new wave electronic groups, Book of Love emerged out of the New York City scene in the mid-1980’s and was signed by the legendary Seymour Stein to Sire Records.

But, before New York, there was Philly.

On April 1, 1986, four Philadelphia College of Art students-turned- musicians — Ted Ottaviano, Susan Ottaviano, Jade Lee and Lauren Roselli — released the band’s debut album.

Between 1986 and 1993, the band released four albums and had a steady string of influential club hits, including the classics “Boy,” “I Touch Roses,”, ““Pretty Boys & Pretty Girls/Tubular Bells,” and You Make Me Feel So Good.”

“Pretty Boys & Pretty Girls/Tubular Bells” even crossed over from the dance charts to the Billboard Hot 100. Book of Love’s music was featured in the classic movies “Planes, Trains and Automobiles,” “Silence of the Lambs,” and “American Psycho.”

Book of Love now is out on a cross-country album support tour that brings the band back to the town where it all began.

“We’re back — at least for this 30th anniversary project,” said Susan Ottaviano, during a phone interviews last week from her home in New York City. “They’re booking us through February. We’re pretty much going everywhere — especially to places we haven’t been in 20 years.”

Even though they were no longer performing as an active band, the four old friends were constantly sought for live shows.

“We kept getting offers for shows,” said Ottaviano. “We had a few mini-reunions. Jade joins us when she can but, at this point in her life, she doesn’t want to tour. When we did a reunion show in New York, she came and played.”

Over the years, New York-based Ted and Susan Ottaviano (not related) continued in music. Roselli, who lives in Pennsylvania, pursued an acting career and appeared in films such as “Philadelphia,”  “Manchurian Candidate,” and “Beloved.” Lee. Who also lives in New York, is a graphic designer and artist.

“We were doing a show in L.A. that caught the interest of people from Sire/Rhino,” said Ottaviano. “That led to the anniversary album which then led to this tour.

“It really is celebrating our 30th anniversary and our whole collection of songs. We re-mastered the album — which is wonderful because it really sounds great and compares well to music that is being made today. We also added a few demos and one re-mix.

“And, we put in two new songs that were written within the last year — ‘All Girl Band’ and ‘Something Good.’ We recorded those two songs at Ted’s studio in Brooklyn. What we really tried to do was make music that we liked.”

rock-allegianceThe show at the World Café Live will start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30 reserved and $20 SRO.

With the Monster Energy Rock Allegiance festival coming to Chester on Saturday and Sunday, the Philadelphia area will be Mecca for fans of metal music this weekend.

The onslaught of heavy music will actually get underway on September 16 when Cobalt and Mantar share the bill at Kung Fu Necktie (1248 North Front Street, Philadelphia, 215-291-4919, kungfunecktie.com).

Mantar makes some of the heaviest music around — with just two musicians. The band from northern Germany includes just drummer/vocalist Erinc and guitarist/vocalist Hanno.



“We arrived in the states two-and-a-half weeks ago,” said Hanno, as the duo was travelling on its way to a show in Pittsburgh. “We’re pretty much co-headlining with Cobalt. Since they are more well-known in the states, they go on last. But, at a lot of the shows, people have come up to us and said they were mainly there to see Mantar.

“We toured the states two times before — March 2015 and May 2105. The first tour was a good way to learn about America. We played Philly on the second tour. That show was also at Kung Fu Necktie.”

Mantar started in Bremen, relocated to Hamburg and then returned to Bremen recently.

“We’ve known each other for 19 years,” said Hanno. “We’re both from Bremen and we got to be friends in the music scene there in the early 90’s.

“But, we just started playing music together a few years ago. I was looking for something new. I asked him if he was available — and he was.”

Mantar, which released its sophomore album “Ode to the Flame” on April 15 on Nuclear Blast Records, has a sound that  is powerful, heavy and somewhat of a hybrid.

“I’m a little more on the metal side and he’s a little more on the rock side,” said Hanno. “Even though I like extreme metal, I also like having songs. I don’t want to have all the songs sound alike. There should be something special in every song.

“I had a very strong vision of what I wanted to do with Mantar. We were able to pull off songs very quickly with a two-piece setup. I had considered adding bass player but didn’t find one. We did a few shows together and we knew then that it should just be the two of us.”

The show at Kung Fu Necktie will start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $14.

The 2016 Monster Energy Rock Allegiance will be held on September 17 and 18 at Talen Energy Stadium, 1 Stadium Dr, Chester, 610-859-3100, http://rockallegiance.com) featuring more than 35 bands on three stages.

The list of bands slated to perform Saturday includes Alice in Chains, The Offspring, Baroness, Trivium, Avatar, Sick Puppies, The Word Alive, Breaking Benjamin, The Cult, Motionless In White, Jim Breuer and the Loud & Rowdy, Max & Igor Cavalera Return To Roots, Young Guns, Chevy Metal, Buckcherry, LetLive, The Apocalypse Blues Revue, Skindred, and Dinosaur Pile-Up.

Sunday’s roster features Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat, Ghost, Killswitch Engage, Hellyeah, Kyng, Devour The Day, Slayer, Chevelle, Anthrax, Of Mice & Men, Sevendust, Twelve Foot Ninja, Aeges, Pierce The Veil, Amity Affliction, Neck Deep, Crobot, Death Angel, and Hundredth.

Dinosaur Pile Up

Dinosaur Pile Up

Dinosaur Pile-Up has its roots in Leeds, England but is now based in London. The band started as a solo project by Matt Bigland and has had many different incarnations. Current members are drummer Mike Sheils, bassist Jim Cratchley and lead singer/guitarist Bigland.

“This line-up has been together for while,” said Bigland, during a phone interview Wednesday afternoon as the band travelled from a tour date in New York to a gig in Tennessee. “It’s been three years since Jim joined. Me and Mike were playing together a couple years before that.

“From the start, Dinosaur Pile-Up was always a solo project. I used different musician friends all along and it was a revolving door. The band evolved in front of people’s eyes. “When I got this line-up, it was the first time that it really felt like a band. There was a band form before but it was never ‘solid as a rock.’ This band is solid.”

Dinosaur Pile-Up’s third studio album “Eleven Eleven” was released via SO Recordings on August 26, 2016.

“’Eleven Eleven’ is our first album as a band,” said Bigland. “We toured a lot before we recorded it. Jim had joined right after the second album (2013’s ‘Nature Nurture’) and we toured solidly for one-and-a-half years — including the United States three times and Japan two times. The ideas for ‘Eleven Eleven’ came from when we were on the road.”

It took the album quite some time to see the light of day in America.

“We recorded it in January 2015,” said Bigland. “It came out in the U.K. last October. We found the right home for it in the U.K. and Japan but not in the U.S. or Europe. After we released the album in the U.K., we got introduced to an American management team though a friend. We didn’t want to release the album in the states without the right people. So, we signed a global management deal with them. Now, our record company is SO Records.”

Most of “Eleven Eleven” recorded at one of the most legendary and iconic recording studios in the world — Rockfield Studios in Wales.

“We were aware of the studio’s history,” said Bigland. “A lot of really great bands recorded there –including Queen. We were working with Tom Dalgetti as our producer. We booked three weeks and recorded 15-16songs.

“I never think you can plan what the vibe of an album will be. You just have to go do it. Me, Mike and Jim wanted a heavy record. Tom wanted a heavy record. As a result, it was the heaviest, loudest record we ever made.”

The last time Trivium performed in this area was back in May when it played a club show at Reverb in Reading. The Orlando-based quartet — Matt Heafy (vocals, guitar), Corey Beaulieu (guitar, vocals), Paul Wandtke (drums), Paolo Gregoletto (bass, vocals) — continues to tour in support its most recent album “Silence in the Snow.”

“We’re rehearsing this week,” said Gregoletto, during a phone interview last week from his home in Orlando, Florida. “We start a month-long tour next week in Columbus, Ohio. Why do we need to rehearse when we’ve been playing the new album for over a year? You’ve got to practice. It’s the key. It’s like sports. It’s not all games.

“The time in-between tours is the time we spend writing ideas. Right now, it’s just informal writing. We probably won’t go into the studio until later next year because we have a European tour in February and March. And, it depends on which producer we want to work with and the studio we want to use.”

The band has been touring in support of its “Silence in the Snow” album, which was released last fall on Roadrunner Records.

 “We finished the album in May and it came out in October,” said Beaulieu. “We recorded it here in Orlando. Our producer Elvis Bassett owns a studio that is 10 minutes from where we live. This was the first time we worked with him. Each time, we use a producer who fits what we want to do on that album.”

In a marked change of style, Trivium abandoned screaming vocals and used only clean vocals on “Silence in the Snow.”

“When we were making the album, we were focused on vocals and hooks,” said Beaulieu. “And, we were focused on stepping up the vocal production. The songs we were writing — singing is what was needed. There was no need for screaming.”

Gregoletto said, “All things are the way they’re meant to be. Matt had to stop screaming. He had to rebuild from the ground up and he has done it well. We’re a band that embraces the melody. I don’t think we’ll ever go back to predominantly screaming.

“We’ve always had clean vocals in addition to screaming. On our second album ‘Ascendency,’ the choruses were clean. Matt’s clean vocals gave us an identity from the beginning. Even our third album ‘The Crusade’ had a lot of clean singing. Still, if a song needs screaming, we can go there and use it wisely.”

Beaulieu said, “We’ve always had the melodic side to our sound. With the new songs, there is a lot of focus on other guitar stuff. I don’t have to sing as much.”

Trivium released its first album “Ember to Inferno” in 2003 and last year’s “Silence in the Snow” was their seventh album release.

“In the studio, we’re still perfectionists,” said Beaulieu. “We rehearse a lot. We always want everything to sound as good as it can. We want everything to be perfect.

“When we get in the studio, we get done what we set out to do. The performance side is pretty quick. When it comes to mixing and mastering, we know what kind of sonics we’re looking for. In our live show, we balance the set with old and new.”

apocalypse-bluesThe Apocalypse Blues Revue, a new-to-the-scene blues rock band, just released its debut album “The Apocalypse Blues Revue” on Provogue Records.

The group started as a side project for Godsmack’s drummer, Shannon Larkin and guitarist Tony Rombola. They filled out the line-up with bassist Brian Carpenter and lewad vocalist Ray “Rafer John” Cerbone.

“The band started by chance,” said Cerbone, during a phone interview Monday as he drove to the band’s recording studio in Florida.

“Tony and Shannon were practicing Godsmack stuff one day. During a break, Tony started playing some blues. Shannon was surprised that Tommy was playing the blues. They realized they both lived the blues and decided to do this project.

“I had met Shannon through a mutual friend at a biker bar in Florida,” said Cerbone. “I ride a Harley and Shannon rides a Harley. So, we hit it off. It was more of a biker mutual friendship. I didn’t look at Shannon as a rock star. When he came to my house one time, he saw my guitar and asked me to do a song.”

That singing of a song led to something more.

“A little while later, he and Tony wrote a blues song,” said Cerbone. “Shannon called me and said he needed someone to sing it. I went to the studio. He put the thing on for me and said — sing for me. He told me to belt it out.

“When I got done, he and Tony were applauding. They were impressed. That was about three years ago. From there, Shannon called Brian Carpenter in to be our bass player. We all contribute to the sound.

“Shannon writes on his own, I write on my own and some songs are mutual efforts. When we get a song down and have a good bass line, we go ahead and record it –and it’s there. Then, the changes are made from the base recording.

“We made the CD at the Vibe Studio in Fort Myers, Florida. We had 17 songs and picked the best 12 to be on the record. We knocked it out pretty quickly. These guys are high-end professional musicians.

“Now, we already have a second CD’s worth of songs written. We could actually go into the studio now and make our second album. We’re purveyors — re-introducing a genre of blues rock that goes back to bands like Led Zeppelin.”

Another band featuring two members of big name metal band will be performing Saturday at the soccer stadium in Chester. Actually, they are former members of Brazil’s most famous band.

max-and-iggor-cavaleraMax and Iggor Cavalera are the original founding members of Brazilian heavy metal legends Sepultura, and specifically the team behind the band’s early albums — including seminal releases such as “Arise,” “Chaos A.D.” and “Roots.”

The Cavalera brothers have cemented their legacy in metal music — Max with Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy (also featuring Iggor) and Killer Be Killed and Iggor with his highly-acclaimed project MIXHELL. 

A few days ago, Max & Iggor Cavalera kicked off their much-anticipated “Return to Roots Tour.” In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Sepultura classic album “Roots,” Max and Iggor — along with their Cavalera Conspiracy brothers Marc Rizzo on guitar and Johny Chow on bass — will perform the album in its entirety at each show.

 “We’ve never played any album beginning-to-end so this is a new concept for us,” said Max Cavalera, during a phone interview Tuesday afternoon from a tour stop in Amarillo, Texas.

“And, there were some songs from ‘Roots’ that we never ever played live. This is a special opportunity for our fans.

“It’s just like you’re listening at home — track by track — except that it is a live setting. There is a jam song, some shred songs and some underground stuff. Then, we close with ‘Dictatorshit,’ which is full-blast hardcore.

“When we were going back to these songs and rehearsing, there was a little brain wracking. We’re playing the album note-for-note the way it was recorded. It’s great for me because I was involved in the writing of a lot of the songs — including a few I wrote on my own.

“The album ‘Roots’is full of big riffs. It is a riff album. Some of the songs are as minimalist as possible — one riff in a song. It’s very heavy and we have a band that is heavy enough to play it. This is a pretty powerful band. We’re going to rip it up and bring the house down.”

Death Angel

Death Angel

Death Angel is a riff-heavy metal band from just across the bay from San Francisco. The intense quintet– vocalist Mark Osegueda, lead guitarist Rob Cavestany, guitarist Ted Aguilar, drummer Will Carroll, and bassist Damien Sisson — is touring in support of its newest album “The Evil Divide,” which was released earlier this year on Nuclear Blast Records.

Cavestany is the lone original member from a band that was formed in 1982. Death Angel released its debut album “The Ultra-Violence” in 1987. Surprisingly, “The Evil Divide” is just the band’s eighth studio album.

There is a reason for the group’s limited output of full-lengths. After a road accident that critically injured the band’s drummer Andy Galeon and a series of other setbacks, Death Angel threw in the towel in that year.

Fortunately, Galeon survived and returned to playing music. Death Angel also returned to playing music — but not until after a decade-plus hiatus.

Death Angel officially reunited in August 2001 for “Thrash of the Titans,” a cancer benefit show for Testament frontman Chuck Billy. Original Death Angel guitarist Gus Pepa could not participate in the reunion so the band brought in longtime friend Ted Aguilar to play rhythm guitar.

“Chuck Billy talked to Rob (Cavestany) and Rob put the band back together for ‘Thrash of the Titans,’ said Aguilar, during a phone interview Tuesday evening from a tour stop in Montreal.

“They called me in to play guitar. We rehearsed a couple days for the show. From what the guys were talking about then, Death Angel was pretty well done and everybody was going their separate ways.

“Then, we played the show and the crowd reaction was great. And, the vibe on the stage was great. So, we did a few more shows around the Bay Area and it has kept going from there.

“For me, learning to play all the band’s songs was a little bit of a challenge. The songs are tricky. Death Angel had a unique sound. But, I played in local Bay Area bands when I was younger and we covered Death Angel songs from the late 80’s and early 90’s. We just jammed them out for fun.”

Death Angel arose from the grave and has been making impressively heavy music ever since. The band has released five post-reunion albums — “The Art of Dying” (2004), “Killing Season” (2008), “Relentless Retribution” (2010), “The Dream Calls for Blood” (2013) and “The Evil Divide” (2016).

 “The Evil Divide” was recorded at AudioHammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Jason Suecof (Trivium, Deicide), who previously worked on 2010’s “Relentless Retribution” and 2013’s “The Dream Calls For Blood.” Mastering duties were handled by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York City.

“That’s the third album we’ve done with them,” said Aguilar. “Three’s a charm and we loved the first two. We love working with Jason. It felt like we were going to a friend’s home whenever we went to the studio. We rented a house near the studio. We would eat, spend 12 hours in the studio, eat again, sleep and then start the same sequence over again.”

The album is loaded with all the characteristics the band’s music is known for — buzzsaw speed riffs, double bass mayhem, and scorching vocals.

“When it comes to songwriting, it comes naturally after the riff,” said Aguilar. “Also, we get inspiration from the road. We just put it all together — and we make it heavier. We always try to push the envelope when we’re writing. We’re all about good riffs.”
