REVIEW BY: Debby Rao
Former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach is currently hitting the road on a mini tour with Twisted Sister with his new band BT5. The band returned to New England to play the Hampton Beach Casino October 24.
The band hit the stage a little after 8 p.m. and played an hour of old school heavy metal. Dressed in black leather with long blond hair flying, Sebastian's stage presence stole the show. He was in great voice and his new band put a new raw edge to all of the Skid Row songs.
The band opened with "Slave to the Grind," Piece of Me" and "Here I Am.” Sebastian and BT5 also played a couple of new songs that were melodic and heavy. His new solo album will be released early next year on Spitfire records. His new band members are guitarist Randall X Rawlings, bassist Brian Hall, drummer Mark "BamBam" McConnell and guitarist Adam Albright.
The highlight of the evening came when the band played “18 and Life,” “Monkey Business” and guitarist Adam Albright played a cool acoustic version of “I Remember You.” Sebastian ended the show with "Youth Gone Wild.”
I got to interview Sebastian earlier this month this is what he had to say: "I have been writing new songs for the next album all summer.
We have so many great songs. They are melodic and heavy." Also, he says, “Twisted Sister is like one of my favorite bands ever. I can’t believe I get to tour with them. When I was a kid I use to spray paint Twister Sister on the back of my jacket with liquid paper."
The Bach is back with a great new band and new sound. Sebastian still has one of the strongest voices in rock and roll today.
