STREAMING: Riot “Still Your Man”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, October 24th, 2011


Having formed before most of us — me, included — were born and having the dubious distinction of some of the worst cover art of all time (Narita, thank you very much), New York heavy metallers Riot are preparing to release their first album in five years. Titled Immortal Soul, the group’s new effort obviously finds its fire in the recently rekindled heavy metal movement (i.e., the younger set), but unlike the newjack metallers currently walking around in Reebok hightops, Riot’s jam, in the form of “Still Your Man”, has groove and depth. Yeah, that’s not saying much, but check out “Still Your Man”. Sounds like 1985 reborn, no?

Without further ado, here’s Riot’s “Still Your Man”:

** Riot’s new album, Immortal Soul, is out October 31st on SPV/Steamhammer Records.

    There’s certainly no depth to this song…I think that “Metal” has never really suited Mark’s playing…He’s capable allright…But his old rock records from the late 70’s & early 80’s made him sound like a God…This stuff is “Way” over-done…As was Thundersteel…Sometimes “Less” is More…Just Sayin’…

    The 70s stuff was good and I still love it, but as far as I’m concerned, ThunderSteel was when Riot became the ultimate Metal Machine. There is something unreal about this line-up; they create magic. The tunes we’ve heard up tilll now (Wings Are For Angels, Still Your Man and Riot) are all as good as perfect, and the wait for my preorder of Immortal Soul is almost unbearable.

    I like the Rhett Forrester material the best. He had a great voice and lots of attitude. Musically, the band was more rock ‘n’ roll than purely metal. I think it suited them better.
