KICK AXE, the best heavy rock group to come out of Canada in the eighties, have re-united and are in the process of releasing a new album. The group received a gold record for their debut album "Vices" and toured with several rock heavyweights such as JUDAS PRIEST, SCORPIONS, METALLICA, RUSH, QUIET RIOT, and WHITESNAKE. Between 1983 and 1987, KICK AXE released three albums with CBS/Sony and were also featured on two movie sound tracks and numerous hard rock compilation albums. Their three videos all received heavy rotation on music channels during the eighties and can still be seen frequently on the "Much Music Power Hour" and VH1's Classic Metal Mania. KICK AXE disbanded as friends in 1988. In 2000 and 2001, the SongHaus/Rewind(Sony) label re-issued the first two KICK AXE albums on CD. The reviews and sales were surprisingly good, especially since the band had split up 12 years earlier. The third album, "Rock The World", has become a rare collectors item and recently several copies sold on Ebay for over $150 USD. There have also been several fan web sites springing up, most notably the Official Kick Axe Fan Site at http://kickaxe.wz.cz. With this fan revival and the overwhelmingly good response to the KICK AXE re-issues, the band got together and decided to record a fourth album. George Criston was unavailable due to long-term commitments with Nettwerk artists DIDO, AVRIL LAVIGNE and SARAH MACLAUGHLIN, so the members of KICK AXE looked to their original singer, Gary Langen, to pick up the vocal duties. Gary was the original vocalist and drummer with KICK AXE when it was formed in 1976 and played in several rock bands with Larry and brother Vic starting when they were old enough to pick up guitars. The new album continues the same brand of melodic hard rock that KICK AXE was known for. Their music incorporates crunchy guitars and elaborate vocal harmonies with a big drum sound. One cut, "Do You Know", features a dual drummer rhythm section that will make your speakers smoke. KICK AXE IV contains 14 brand new original songs.
