Released on 25/01/10. Part Motörhead, part Iron Maiden, part Ted Nugent, and among one of the best metal bands of the era, The Rods from Upstate New York were as much a part of the early 80 s U.K. New Wave Of British Heavy Metal scene as any of their Brit contemporaries.
The rabid three-headed beast of David ‘Rock’ Feinstein (guitar/vocals), Garry Bordonaro (bass/ vocals) and Carl Canedy (drums/vocals) would chew through the restraining chains of the U.S. East Coast disco scene and following the release of their first self-financed album, Rock Hard in 1980, signed with major label, Arista and saw their popularity begin to rise with the release of their self-titled album in September 1981.
As special guest on the European leg of Iron Maiden s Number Of The Beast tour, The Rods sandwiched the recording of their follow-up album, Wild Dogs with sessions taking place at Parkgate Studios in Hastings during February of 82. Packed with prime Metal morsels and some of the meatiest riffs committed to record.
