ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Robot Lords of Tokyo project is the culmination of a 10-year musical partnership between Rick Ritzler and Paul Jones. After several CDs and hundreds of gigs in a previous band covering much musical territory, the two returned to their roots, abandoned the traditional "band" concept, and the Robot Lords were born. The first self-titled CD was a surprise critical success, and is currently available at CDBaby.com. The follow-up sophomore effort, "Whiskey, Blood & Napalm", released in October of 2008, promises to destroy the debut, with more king-sized riffs, shredtastic solos, power vocals and greasy groove metal than you can shake a stick at. Once again the special guests are a virtual who's who of great midwestern rock and metal musicians, including Joe Viers (Snowblynd), Beau Van Bibber (Deflagration), Steve Theado (American Dog), Rob Johnson (Magnitude 9/Solo), Steve Pollick (ex-Icarus Witch/Order of Nine), and instrumental guitar great Neil Zaza, among others. So stay heavy, stay strong, and watch the skies.........

Hails, listen up folks because this is yet another badass CD from Ohio's Robot Lords of Tokyo! ''Whiskey, Blood & Napalm'' is already their second album and it's so powerful it will blow you're minds away! So first things first, let me tell y'all a little something about RLoT.

Way back in the late nineties the founding members of RLoT played in a Hard Rock band called Green Sky Grey which had their home base in Columbus, they released three albums between 1999 and 2003 and gigged extensively throughout the Midwest. After the band's demise in 2004 drummer Rick Ritzler and guitarist Brad Stemple started to get together to jam on the Classic Metal tunes they grew up with.

After several weeks of jamming and playing covers from Dio, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, etc they came up with the idea to record a cover album with personal faves and invite friends / fellow musicians to appear on the album as guest musicians. Looking for a suitable vocalist they called their long time friend and former Green Sky Grey lead singer Paul Jones and thus the Robot Lords of Tokyo were born! HINT: check out their self-titled debut album at cdbaby.com or via their website at www.robotlordsoftokyo.com , just do it, you won't regret it!!!

Now lets get back to ''Whiskey, Blood & Napalm'', as I mentioned before this is a hell of a badass motherfucker loaded with Hard Rock / Metal riffs you can only dream of, and their hunt for the ultimate metal riff results in a massive heavyweight album! The guest musicians on this album are: Beau Vanbibber (Deflagration), Joe Viers (Fall of Man, Snowblind), Steve Theado (American Dog), Terry Adams (Throttle Z), Steve Pollick (ex-Icarus Witch, Order of Nine), Rob Johnson (Magnitude 9 / solo), Neil Zaza, Ryan Smith (Snowblynd), Marc Leist (This Fire's Embrace), Nate Hollman (Snowblynd), reading the line up on this album should make you instantly think that this is a killer and it is, the chemistry between this band of brothers is so overwhelming it results in what I think should be the hard rock / metal album of the year!!! Honestly these guys play hard rock / metal the way it should be played,straight in youre face!

On this album I hear influences from Black Sabbath, COC, Spiritual Beggars, Ozzy, Black Label Society, Down, Grand Magus etc. The album features a very powerful production due to the hard and honest work the Robot Lords have put in, from the first track you'll hear massive drums, pounding bass, heavy rhythm guitars, heavenly solos and great vocals. Beau Vanbibber played and recorded all the rhythm guitars and his work results in a verry tight and massive wall of sound (Horns up), Beau also did a few lead vocals and backing vocals and it has to be said that his and Paul Jones's voice are a perfect match! I guess that the contribution of the other guest musicians needs no further information because it's well known that they all are number one wielders of the axe and kick ass shredders for sure and one by one they take the tracks to a higher level and make this a nice versatile album that never bores!!!

The Robot Lords of Tokyo are here and they're here to stay, in my opinion RLoT made with Whiskey, Blood & Napalm a real masterpiece that will be the revelation of the year for a whole lot a metalheads around the world and I'm sure they will take a place next to current top acts in the scene!!! So there's only one thing for you left to do, listen to a few tracks and buy this brilliant album!!! Just do it and get this masterpiece bros!

Whiskey, Blood & Napalm
Great Band! It's heavy stuff, This band is for real. All I know for sure is that I am impressed with this album as I was impressed with their 1st CD. If only there were more bands as good as these guys.

mike


this band are one of my best discoveries of 2008,,,this cd seriously grooves like few others,,,all the songs are very high standard,with awesome character-filed vocals,,,and (not that it's important when you've got songs of this calibre! )if you like the very very highest class "shred",,then sprinkled on many of the songs are solos of sheer unremitting jaw dropping technique and attitude,,,i think this is a must have cd,,these guys are the real deal.full stop.

Rockem Sockem Robots!
Upon 1st listen this is what I have to say....'Whiskey, Blood & Napalm' by Robot Lords of Tokyo is one of my Top 10 CDs of 2008. Yup, it's that good. For what is essentially a two piece band with a revolving list of guest stars, RLoT is an extremely tight group that sounds like they've been together forever. In other words the Robots sound like a band, not a project. Nothing sounds piecemeal or out of place on this disc. And speaking as someone who is distinctly NOT a METALHEAD I'm happy to say this disc is lacking any of the cliches of the sometimes cartoonish genre of heavy metal. First and foremost the songs simply rock. Great riffs, great feel. The production is top notch. Guitars, vocals, and drums are loud and in your face but not overbearingly so. The songwriting is intelligent and melodies memorable. And no 'cookie monster' vocals to be found. (thankfully!) I don't give out many 5 star reviews but 'Whiskey, Blood, & Napalm' definitely deserves it. Stand out tracks include 'The Mergatroid', 'Bring It On Down' and 'Comes Eternal Night'.

YES ! A great METAL album !
Righ up my alley here. Great CD . METAL the way I like it. Similar to SABBATH / DOWN / TROUBLE . Great Album Cover too. Some ripping Guitar work adds icing to this slab of METAL CAKE ! A great band from USA. Metal fans will want to own this and crank it up very loud !!!!!!!

Martin Short

Stepped up and hit a home run!
Well these guys produced a great debut album (waddya mean - you ain't got it!!)and this, the so-called difficult 2nd album goes to show that they were just warming up before. Rick and Paul have got some major league players helping out on this one and some of the riffage is awesome. Difficult to pick a favorite track so I won't, just strap yourself down, turn it up to 11, and prepare to get mashed by the Mergatriod and his pals! Great work and a 510 yard homer of an album.

I LOVE THE SOUND OF NAPALM IN THE MORNING
WOW!!! I thought their first effort was good. They have really raised the bar with Whiskey, Blood and Napalm (even the title kicks ass).
Here we've got some sort of Armored Saint penetrating an Alabama Thunderpussy. It doesnt get any better than this in my book. If u thought metal was dead, and are wondering what happened, you owe it to yourself to hear this. Me being a huge KISS fan and hearing their take on Larger Than Life is just icing on the cake. THANK YOU ROBOT LORDS OF TOKYO... thank you.
