Morts This is hard rock the way we like to hear it! Plenty of guts and attitude and a liberal dose of flash to add to the substance. Do rock-chick vocals get any more suited to the music than this? (Well, perhaps equal to Janet Gardner of Vixen...)
For a good time have a listen to The Deafening and simply rock out!

You better believe that I'm a destroyer And I'm right on time I know you wanna taste, boy its gonna cost you More and more each time I'm burning midnight oil hotter than the sun Turning cold dark water red with evil blood I'm a guided missile through an iron sub I destroy on command and I do right on time Cause I can oh yeah You better believe that I'm a destroyer And I'm right on time I know you wanna taste, boy its gonna cost you More and more each time I'm commissioned war out on the open sea I'm an iron sided missile guided death machine Cannons up and down oh baby in between I destroy on command and I do right on time Cause I can Count down cannons all out Locked on to destroy

Violent engine and jet black seats She's driving weak kneed women at hard rock speeds She likes to burn the road and the rubber hard steel and chrome I raced her all summer She was an evil black and silver machine Sucking up gas and spitting out speed Blowing past the cops at a hundred and three She had an Evil Kiss and it went like Evil Kiss It was nineteen seventy six-six-six She's built to break the law baby break the law, AH She had an Evil Kiss It was nineteen seventy six-six-six She's built to break the law baby break the law, AH No headlights down a one-way street Baby this cold black beast breathes the fire of speed Shifting gears oooh baby shake those knees Burnt gas in the air a black lung disease The winds going by gonna make them all freeze Tearing off clothes and ripping up trees Feels so fast at her slowest Speeds She had an Evil Kiss and it went like Evil Kiss It was nineteen seventy six-six-six She's built to break the law baby break the law, AH She had an Evil Kiss It was nineteen seventy six-six-six She's built to break the law baby break the law, AH

I drank a bottle of whiskey Got the shake down Chinatown Man what was I thinking Got the shake down Chinatown Got pulled out in the street next thing They threw me in a car Raced up to the Bronx got robbed And then they threw me out I got the shake down Chinatown come on They got me shaking and screaming Kicking harder on the ground But they never could agree on where to Hide my body baby I'm thinking back and I know Got the shake down Chinatown It was my lucky number Got the shake down Chinatown Never stopped my drinking Got the shake down Chinatown Man what was I thinking Got the shake down Chinatown The cops are writing tickets oh They're no where to be found Pulled me in a room took my money So close to lights out Oh shake down Chinatown come on They got me shaking and screaming Kicking harder on the ground But they never could quite agree on where to hide my body baby Never going back to Chinatown Never going back again I drank a bottle of whiskey Got the shake down Chinatown Man what was I thinking Got the shake down Chinatown I musta been so horny Got the shake down Chinatown Robed me without warning Got the shake down Chinatown Oh shake down Chinatown come on They got me kicking and screaming Kicking harder this time But they never could quite agree on where to hide my body baby

I remember in my heart and I remember in my head All those evil ghosts and how they lived, baby And what they did Memories can turn so cold But at least I know I won't forget Sinking in the graves their bones underneath The unrepentant souls OH You Will Remember The Dead And like is like a son of bitch And all that we have laid to rest Remember as they rise again YEAH They're coming from the old grave yard Dying for a second chance All those evil ghosts they're coming back baby To bite down on your flesh When the streets are running red with blood And you're dancing right down to hell You will remember the dead this night And never live to tell OH You Will Remember The Dead And like is like a son of bitch And all that we have laid to rest Remember as they rise again YEAH

Dress you up to die Cause I want you sexy like a suicide Dress you up to die Cause I want you sexy like a suicide You're so sexy oh yeah for me tonight You're pretty when you die I want you sexy I want you cold I just cant wait to write your note I want to push you in the road Pick you up and take you home I want you locked inside my car Filled with fumes while I get off I want you dressed your best to die I want you sexy like a suicide Oh yeah Cause I want you sexy like a suicide Dress you up to die Cause I want you sexy like a suicide You're so sexy oh yeah for me tonight You're pretty when you die I want you there when I get home Hanging from my favorite rope I want your head tucked in the stove Fill my lungs with human smoke I want you pushed under my bed With plastic bags around your head I want you dressed your best to die I want you sexy like a suicide yeah

about

The Deafening assembled in early 2008 with two clear missions. First, the band intentionally shed nearly all the petty contrivances of popular modern rock by striping its sound to the raw heart of classic rock. Second, The Deafening seeks to earn its’ name by resurrecting the bombastic theater of the big live rock and roll show. Influences are numerous, and primarily counted as Guns N’ Roses, MC5, Iggy Pop, Kiss, The Rolling Stones, AC DC, Queen, and The Misfits. The band’s trademark is a unique blend of glam, horror, punk, blues and sleaze rock blasted through big guitar stacks, all while boasting one of the most interactive and memorable stage shows ever put together.

about

The Deafening New York, New York

The Deafening is New York to it's core. A ferocious four piece born of the city's eternal energy. A raw tribute to it's defiant crush. With blues beating back and rough punk ethos, The Deafening are the natural heirs to the Bowery's big bad seventies sound. ... more
