For those who love new wave AND metal, stand in the light of the darkness, and testify... your time is at hand. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome a new genre, METAL WAVE by James Rivera.
The legendary front man of Houston power metal giants, Hellstar, delivers a unique marriage of two of the most enduring musical genres of the 20th century, new wave and metal. On his new album, Metal Wave, James Rivera does what he does best to classic alternative hits from the Psychedelic Furs, Depeche Mode, Tears For Fears, Echo & the Bunnymen, the Cult, and more.
Said Rivera, "Make no mistake that to this day I still love each of these songs in the original forms but I have to admit now that we did them in our own metal way, it's hard for me to listen to them as they were and I know once these new wave classics sink their teeth into you metal wave style, you'll never listen to them the same either!"
