French Maide - "The Rat" (album stream)

Οι French Maide δημιουργήθηκαν το 1986 στην Πενσιλβανία αρχικά ως μπάντα διασκευών σε "radio rock" τραγούδια. Γρήγορα όμως άρχισαν να συνθέτουν το δικό τους υλικό. Το 1991 κυκλοφόρησαν σε κασέτα το (αυτοχρηματοδοτούμενο) "Maide in America" σε hard rock / sleaze ύφος. Τρία χρόνια αργότερα (1994) "έβγαλαν" τον πρώτο ολοκληρωμένο τους δίσκο μέσω της Small Handgun Records (δική τους εταιρεία) υπό τον τίτλο "The Rat" (ή σκέτο "Demo").

Οι φίλοι του US Metal οφείλουν να κάνουν μία στάση εδώ και να δώσουν μία ευκαιρία στον δίσκο. Δεν θα χάσουν τον χρόνο τους. Στις αρχές του τρέχοντος μήνα το album επανακυκλοφόρησε μέσω της Heaven and Hell Records σε cd (μόλις 500 κόπιες) μαζί με τα υπόλοιπα δισκογραφήματα της μπάντας (το ep δηλαδή)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «French Maide was formed in 1986 in Erie, Pennsylvania by guitarists Ron Wheeler and Dana Williams, bassist Mike Deau and drummer Ray Moffatt. Wheeler, Williams and Deau would all share vocal duties. The band would start out as a radio rock cover band, quickly gaining a local following in the in their area. Eventually, they began to write their own material and slowly incorporate these songs into their sets.

In 1991 French Maide would self-release an EP cassette titled ‘Maide in America’, their first recorded material. The 6-songs would be a blistering hard rock with a hint of sleaze in stylings fashionable to the time; think Dirty Looks, Sea Hags or Circus of Power.

Shortly following the release of ‘Maide in America’, Wheeler would be replaced by Todd Szoszorek. As their following in Erie continued to grow the band decided they were in need of a frontman. They soon asked Tony Mankoski, who had been surfacing in the local scene, after seeing him perform with his band while opening for French Maide one night.

With the two new faces and fresh input, the band began to develop more of a metallic sound as they headed into a more melodic heavy metal direction similar to Leatherwolf, Riot or Fifth Angel. With this evolution, the local crowds grew larger and the band extended their playing area to Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Buffalo opening for national acts such as Quiet Riot, Peter Criss (KISS), Kix, Widowmaker (Dee Snyder), Great White, and their local brothers Dirty Looks.

In 1994 French Maide released their full length ‘The Rat’ on their own label Small Handgun Records. After its release, the band struggled to keep the same lineup. However, Moffatt, Mankoski, Szoszorek tried to keep the band alive throughout the following years, around 2012/13 the three finally decided to part ways and lay the Maide to rest.»
