The legendary Bobby Blitz of Overkill joined forces with Mike Portnoy of The Winery Dogs & Sons of Apollo, Mark Menghi of Metal Allegiance and Phil Demmel of Vio-lence for a new explosive music endeavor under the moniker BPMD and the debut album “American Made” is a full blown heavy metal party featuring covers of rock classics.
For Ted Nugent’s “Wang Dang Sweet Poontang” Bobby Blitz makes a wild introduction with his signature vocal delivery and as soon as the instrumental ensemble takes the center stage with sharp guitar riffs and killer licks you can perceive a major positive energy.
Aerosmith’s “Toys in the Attic” is filled with gritty riffs perfect for a heavy metal party amplified by Bobby’s charismatic vocal performance and the fast rhythmic section that ensures a constant groovy mood enriched by the impeccable guitar solo.
“Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers” by ZZ Top is another wicked groovy tune that channels intense old school vibes with fiery rounds of soaring guitar riffs and wild shredding in proper heavy metal fashion.
Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Saturday Night Special” features a monumental classic metal formula combining bold rhythmic blasts and an overdose of eclectic guitar solos showcasing outstanding musicianship and the resulting massive grooves will certainly trigger instant headbanging.
Blue Oyster Cult’s “Tattoo Vampire” acquires a darker rebellious momentum that builds super catchy fast dynamics with scorching guitar riffs, unrestrained drumming and Bobby’s savage vocals.
“We’re an American Band” by Grand Funk Railroad is all about an entertaining classic heavy metal formula channeling major vintage vibes with vibrant rhythmic patterns and delightful melodic guitar progressions.
It would be a blast seeing BPMD perform live the entire album “American Made” and listening to the reimagination of all these rock songs you can always perceive outpouring talent and enthusiasm.
