Ever since I heard the first single from Johnny Wore Black, I have been trying to keep track of their progress. That first single was called All The Rage and featured a guest appearance from Megadeth’s Dave Ellefson on bass. How cool is that? The second single, Up In Flames, was featured here on A Metal State of Mind which you can check out here.
Recently, Johnny Wore Black released a third single, Noise. Again, the third single follows the overall theme of the other two songs…cool and dark and a little like Porcupine Tree. I like the melody and moodiness of the song. In short, I look forward to a full album. So far, all three songs have been quality material. See Noise below and judge for yourself.
A little while ago we featured an up and coming artist (band) called Johnny Wore Black. I wouldn’t consider them metal, but they have an edge to them that I think metal fans can and will certainly appreciate. You can read that original artist profile here which also provides further information about the band.
Johnny Wore Black now has a new song about to be released on August 13, but you can listen to it here now. The new track is called Up in Flames and features none other than Dave Ellefson of Megadeth on bass, of course. Enjoy!
