case Sergio Leone (I know he has passed away) or Clint Eastwood should
ever need a soundtrack for the story of the famous stage coach robbery
in Tombstone on April 21st 1881, and the happenings afterwards, in which
Wyatt Earp takes centre stage, culminating with the well-known gun
battle in O.K. Corral, then they need to look no further, because exactly
125 years later on April 21st 2006, Dezperadoz is releasing the
perfect music for the movie.
man behind this concept album about Wyatt Earp is Alex Kraft, and to
fulfil his dream is first and foremost Dennis Ward helping him out both
as a producer, but also as guitarist on the album. Sascha Tilger (drums)
and Alex Weigand (bass) lays the foundations for the album, which also
features some famous guests: Michael Weikath (Helloween), Tobias Sammet
(Edguy), Joacim Cans (HammerFall) and Doro.
do like the concept and the way they try to blend soundtrack music,
country and western with metal. The album ends up being pretty
entertaining, sounding just like the metal sound track for a country and
western movie it's suppose to be.
it's debatable if people will dig this rather unique and strange
mixture, I do find the album has its moments, and it did put a big smile
on my face more than once, but it never made me bang my head in sheer
enjoyment. It does have some reminiscence of very old D:A:D -
back around when they were still known as
After Dark. Throw in a few pinches of Danzig and Monster Magnet, and you
might have an idea of the music?
think you need to be in the right mood to really enjoy the entire album;
little by little it's actually quite OK. But be warned, this is not a
typically metal album by any means...
Yiiipppiiikayaaa Motherf**ker! Rawhide...
