The Eagles of Death Metal originally appeared as a Rock‘n’Roll “roots” experiment being featured on the 1998 Man's Ruin release Desert Sessions Vol. 3 & 4. After resisting the call to rock stardom to pursue what remains the source of one of the most obsessive rock mysteries inspiring endless speculation which include suggestions of strategy consulting for high profile politicians, gun running in Central America, and assuming another identity to produce, in secret, some of the pop world's biggest smashes. Whatever the case J Devil “disappeared” following the release of DS 3&4 and “reappeared” after a persistent campaign of inspired encouragement from childhood friend and intellectual peer Josh Homme (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE).
Speaking with a voice of shocking conviction and igniting a sensation of panicked sexual fervor that, some are saying, hasn't been seen since Little Richard announced Rock‘n’Roll is over 55 years ago comes Peace Love Death Metal. Featuring the slide guitar boogie and falsetto choruses of the thin, weird, eccentric Rock newcomer Jesse, The Devil, Hughes (aka Holmes), the dueling guitar excitement of Tim Vanhamel, the sex-rock dance-boogie beats of the wildly mysterious Baby Duck (Josh Homme), and the honky-tonk piano genius of Alain Johannes. Engineered, and mixed by the infamous Mr. Alain Johannes, produced by team Homme/Johannes at 11AD in Hollywood, CA, PLDM has already set off shock waves throughout the Rock world. Calling upon the spirit of Bon Scott and following in the guitar traditions of his native South Carolinian hero, Phelps “Catfish” Collins (brother of Bootsy) J Devil, donning the sexiest mustache in Rock History, began a streak of song writing that birthed the Sex Rock time bomb PEACE LOVE DEATH METAL. With the authority and the Rock and Roll American ferocity of the Ramones, the undeniable and infectious dance boogie of Marvin Gay sung with a voice that is somewhere between Canned Heat and Prince, PLDM is the first complete release of a band that is said to be the greatest of all Rock by everyone who has heard them.
EAGLES OF DEATH METAL worldwide domination tour is in the works.
The Eagle has landed.
