Jack Starr’s Burning Starr To Release New Studio Album This Summer

 

“Stand Your Ground”, the long awaited new studio album of the legendary US Power Metal act JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR, will be released on August 25, 2017, on High Roller Records. The effort, which is almost 80 minutes long, has been produced by Bart Gabriel (with whom the band already worked on the previous album, “Land Of The Dead”), recorded and mixed by Kevin Burnes (DOKKEN, RAVEN), and mastered by Patrick W. Engel at Temple Of Disharmony Studio. The release will be available as CD, double LP, and digital download. Like in case of previous two BURNING STARR albums, its cover artwork was painted by Ken Kelly – legendary artist known from his iconic works for bands such as RAINBOW, KISS or MANOWAR.

 

JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR was formed in 1985, by the guitarist and founding member of VIRGIN STEELE, Jack Starr. After doing 4 classic albums in the ’80s: “Rock The American Way” (1985) “No Turning Back!” (1986), “Blaze Of Glory” (1987) and same titled one (so called “orange album” from 1989), the band returned with a new line up featuring: Jack Starr (guitar), Ned Meloni (bass guitar, ex JOE LYNN TURNER band, ex DEVIL CHILDE and PHANTOM LORD), Kenny Rhino Earl (drums, ex MANOWAR, now also in ROSS THE BOSS band) and Todd Michael Hall (vocals, also in RIOT V), and released the well received comeback album titled “Defiance” in 2009. Two years later the band released their next studio album, entitled “Land Of The Dead”, which received wide critical acclaim by fans and critics alike, but now 2017 finds BURNING STARR ready to unleash what they feel is their strongest album yet in a 30 plus year career.

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
