About a year ago I did an interview for Kink Magazine with Bambi Lynn (the lead singer, guitarist, and keyboardist of the rock band Radio Cult).  She and her band tour constantly.  They travel all across the United States performing everywhere from their home in Atlanta, GA to Los Angeles, CA and even in London, England.  The band plays around 150 shows each year.  Bambi mentioned that when they weren't on tour, they spent a lot of time in the studio recording songs for their albums and music for movie soundtracks.  

Last month, Radio Cult released their third album, Grooves From The Grave, which is an awesome tribute to classic punk and metal of the 70s - 90s.  With the exception of one Radio Cult song from the soundtrack of a horror film (Shoot the Dead), all of the songs on Grooves From The Grave are classic metal and punk tracks including cuts from some of my favorite bands like The Ramones, Black Sabbath, Kiss, Motorhead, and White Zombie (plus Rage Against the Machine, Iron Maiden and The Sex Pistols).  The music on this disc makes you want to pump your fist in the air and sing along really loud when you're by yourself in your car.  The music is tight and the guitars scream, but the one element that pushes this disc over the top is Bambi's interpretation of the vocals for these songs.  Hearing a chick sing Detroit Rock City and Thunderkiss '69 is just hot!  Bassist Ricky Zero does a fine job singing Anarchy in the UK and Blitzkrieg Bop as well, but it isn't nearly as sexy as Bambi screaming "Fuck You!  I won't do what you tell me!" in Rage Against the Machine's Killing in the Name of.  

The cover art is equally brilliant!  Created by comic book artist D.W. Frydendall, the cover and accompanying CD booklet (which is filled with amazing horror movie style artwork and photos) make the whole package even better.  The artwork under the disc is a tribute to the old Tales From The Crypt covers.  One of my favorites is a photo of bassist Ricky Zero done to look like the Re-Animator movie poster (see photo on left).  So if you like the bands mentioned above, you should defiantly check out this CD which is available through the Radio Cult website or the Radio Cult Facebook Page.  If you're a filmmaker looking for music for your soundtrack, you might want to contact Radio Cult about doing a song for you.  They certainly have experience!
