UPDATE!!!! ONE NIGHT ONLY: The Electric Hellfire Club Live

 

EHC

On this historic Walpurgis Weekend, wherein the Church of Satan will celebrate its 50th Year of existence, the Electric Hellfire Club is pleased to announce that our performance on 12/02/16 will feature a special guest appearance by the legendary Daughter of Darkness herself: Jinx Dawson – lead vocalist and ceremonial magus of the seminal Satanic rock band COVEN.

 
For the uninitiated, COVEN’s debut album -“Witchcraft: Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls” – released in 1969 featured the first ever recording of a Black Mass and introduced the “Sign of the Horns” to popular culture (eat your hearts out Gene Simmons and Ronnie James Dio).

 
The album’s opening track, “Black Sabbath”, was likely the source for the name of the British rock group that would release their first record over a year later.

 
The Electric Hellfire Club proudly claims COVEN as a major influence in our music and as the inspiration for the title of our second album: “Kiss The Goat”.

 
We are honored and thrilled by the opportunity to share the stage with one of the pioneers of not only our genre, but one of the greatest female rock vocalists of all time. The results of this unholy alliance promise to be nothing short of diabolically divine.

 
Again, we must emphasize: this is NOT A TOUR. This is a ONE NIGHT ONLY, once in a lifetime event. Join us on the Highway to Hell for an experience unlike any other. Come to Florida, Pablo. Psychedelic Blasphemy awaits.

About DOWNFALL 2012:

 

Downfall 2012 is a 3-piece alternative metal/active rock band from Houston, TX. This trio of vocalists/musicians/percussionists has built a sound and stage show that leaves each city it ventures to with a lasting impression of just how diverse a rock concert can be. The band prides itself on their value of a production with entertainment and the ability to appeal to future fans who otherwise may never indulge in such a genre, while still holding on to those aggressive music enthusiasts in the front row of each show. While they have been present and active for many years, a giant turning point for Downfall 2012 was teaming up with producer, engineer and videographer Jim Finley, who assisted in the creation and development of the music and video to “Everyman for Himself” a record initially broken into pieces and released as EPs in 2012-2014 (and is in the process of being compiled along with the remaining unreleased material to create one cohesive full length record/story to be released in mid-2016). The team has also invited Houston graphic artist A.Tomic to complement their music with a conceptual visual and mini comic books which accompany each release. The singles “Divinity”, “Heckler”, and “Face to Face” are in rotation on a number of FM and Internet radio stations, and have corresponding conceptual music videos.

 
The band has shared the stage with: Otep, Limp Bizkit, Hollywood Undead, Ice Cube, The Offspring, Hed PE, Powerman 5000, Filter, Nothing More, Twisted Sister, Alice Cooper, ICP, and many more. In 2016 the band is set to do a Spring run with AVATAR along with several headlining dates.

 
Houston’s leading rock station 94.5 the Buzz has awarded the band multiple “Texas Buzz Awards” in the span of recent years including “Band of the year”, “Best live performance”, “Best Bass” and Best Drummer.

Watch ACE FREHLEY And PAUL STANLEY In ‘Fire And Water’ Video

paulstanleyacefrehleyvid_638

HAPPY 65th BIRTHDAY ACE!

 
Ace Frehley has just released the music video for his cover of the FREE song “Fire And Water”, featuring his former bandmate and KISS’s co-founding frontman Paul Stanley.

 

 

Check it out at this link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypw1QVnuv74

 
The “Fire And Water” video holds its place in rock and roll history as the first time in 14 years that Frehley and Stanley have shared a stage since KISS’s appearance at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. It’s also the first time Frehley has released a music video since 1989, which was Frehley’s cover of “Do Ya” by ELO and THE MOVE.

 
Frehley’s cover of “Fire And Water” is taken from his solo covers set, “Origins Vol. 1”, which debuted at No. 23 on The Billboard 200, having shifted 16,109 equivalent album units in the week ending April 21.

 
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

 
In terms of pure album sales, “Origins Vol. 1” opened with just under 15,824 copies.

 
During an appearance on KBAD 94.5’s “Morning Crash” radio show, Stanley stated about his collaboration with Frehley: “Ace was doing an album of covers, songs that influenced him and that he loved, and called me. And it’s always very funny, because with caller ID, I look, and the phone’s ringing, and I see Ace’s name come up. So, of course…

 
“Look, for all the bickering and stuff that we may say about each other, we go back to a very magical time. We started this together. So in spite of whatever we may say from time to time or things that get blown up, we are a family, and a dysfunctional one, but nonetheless a family.

 
“So Ace said, ‘Would you do something on the album?’ I said, ‘Sure. Of course.'”

 
He continued: “If [Ace] succeeds, it only makes me happy. I don’t wanna see anybody fail, especially somebody who I’m close to. Even if I don’t speak to him weekly, even monthly, we are connected in a way that will go to the end.

 
“There’s a great song by FREE called ‘Fire And Water’, which was on the album with ‘All Right Now’. Paul Rodgers, besides being a friend of mine, is one of the consummate vocalists. So to get a chance to sing something that’s a little different than what I do in KISS was something I didn’t take lightly, because Paul Rodgers is a hell of a vocalist. So it was great, and it was a lot of fun, and it was terrific. And I only wish Ace well with it.”

 
Ace spoke to Rolling Stone about his teamup with Stanley. Frehley said: “I thought Paul did a fabulous vocal on it. He jumped at the chance to do this because it’s something that’s outside of KISS and his character in KISS, and it gave him a chance to, y’know, sing. With Paul, you usually think of him singing in a slightly higher register and on ‘Fire And Water’, he’s singing deep from his diaphragm, and it’s a real cool vocal. Everyone’s who heard it was just thinks it’s the shit.”

 
Other high-profile artists guesting with Ace on the new album are Slash, Lita Ford, Mike McCready, and John 5. In addition to the FREE track, Ace and his guests tackle key classic rock touchstones by CREAM, STEPPENWOLF, LED ZEPPELIN, THIN LIZZY, THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE, THE ROLLING STONES, THE KINKS — and even KISS.

01. White Room (CREAM)
02. Street Fighting Man (ROLLING STONES)
03. Spanish Castle Magic (JIMI HENDRIX) (feat. John 5)
04. Fire And Water (FREE) (feat. Paul Stanley)
