Dude when I read about AC/DC’s comeback I must admit I was like totally stoked. I so grew up on AC/DC an then I went to college I remembered I went Angus Young style. I mean wearing shorts and tie…a la Anguys Young dude…not that I am that old but that was a few years back So yeah, the AC/DC aussies have recently released a new album entitled ‘Black Ice’. Needless to say, the acca dacca fans are all over it already. Personally, I take anything from AC/DC.
As some of you might already know, “Black Ice” is the band’s first studio album in eight years. Black Ice features 15 new tracks from brothers Angus and Malcolm Young, Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, and Phil Rudd. The album was produced by Brendan O’Brien and mixed by Mike Fraser at the Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, BC. Yahoo music has it that the band’s 15th effort has been heralded as “the biggest debut ever by a mainstream hard rock album.
So far, “Black Ice” has sold around 1,762,000 units in its first week since October 20th when it was released. The album went number one in 29 different countries, including Australia, the United Kingdom and United States. So these guys are definitely claiming back their spot as masters of metal.
The album’s first single, “Rock ‘N’ Roll Train,” debuted last August 28th. And the band kicked off its first world tour since 2001 last October. In addition, the band has also recently released “No Bull: The Directors Cut”, a newly edited, comprehensive HD DVD of the band’s famed July 1996 Plaza De Toros De Las Ventas concert in Madrid , Spain. So they seem to be keeping themselves busy and reinventing the AC/DC repertoire of classic and new hits. Good for those AC/DC fans. That’d be me too.
So in light of the release of AC/DC’s fifteen studio album release, we thought of sharing with you some of the AC/DC classics such as “Highway to Hell” , “For Those About to Rock” , “Thunderstruck” , “Who Made Who” and “Shook Me All Night Long” So whatcha you waiting for? Time for using those pipes of yours. Start singing now!
