Live & Louder was recorded during their European tour late last year and is the first live album from the hard touring “supergroup”.
The Dead Daisies. Featuring five well known members which are heavily influenced by ‘70s and '80s rock music, Corabi, Tichy, Mendoza, Lowy and Aldrich were aiming to capture the smoke that goes down onto the crowd during a live show.
Anthony Focx (Aerosmith, Bad Company, amongst others) was given the job capture this atmosphere by mixing this very nice release.
The band really nailed all performances which were captured during the shole tour.
To me this in fact is the only downside to the album because it sounds so F*#king Great.
A live release to me should be captured during one whole show.
I really dig John Corabi.
The way he performs onstage is simply blood & sweat to deliver to the max.
This band should be headlining the big arenas.
Like many other great singers John is somewhat underratedc to my opinion.
With The Dead Daisies he now found his true place and they are really growing into a monster of a live band.
On top of that, i can keep on praising the other blokes in this awesome band.
David Lowry and former Whitesnake six stringer Doug Aldrich are a fantastic snare twin combination which you can hear clearly on this superb album.
The nice part is they both can be heared on seperate speakers here.
Last but not least the awesome rhythm combination of Mendoza and Tichy are laying a solid foundation on each song.
The last studio release 'Make Some Noise' is heavily featured in this set, but tracks from 'Revolucion' and the debut album are also present.
This album is a real rollercoater and captures the energy and joy the band reflects on their fanbase. 'Mexico' and 'Make Some Noise' really kick in and mkes you think like being in that crowd having a blast.
parts of Judas Priest, Jimy Hendrix and also Aerosmith being shared with enthousiasm as well giving the crowd something else to chew on.
Real and pure hardrock entertainment is what these guys deliver.
The band included some cover songs as well, something the band doesn't really need but i won't complain because they do deliver!
Creedence Clearwater Revival's 'Fortunate Son' being played fantasticly, just listen to the guitar craftmanship during the shared Lowry and Aldrich solos.
'Helter Skelter' and 'American Band' are also fitting this set, although they don't really stand out to my opinion.
They could have filled this space with another TDD song.
Rounding up this release i would like to say it's solid, it is uplifting and has this real live feeling.
It would have been even greater if it was recorded during one gig.
The album is released in various formats such as CD+DVD, 2LP+CD, limited boxset.
The Dvd is really fun to watch featuring on and offstage moments.
A real treat to the fans.
