We are very happy to have this album on our label.
With Bruce Kulick on guitar, who recorded this album in New York, 1974 and who later became very famous as the guitarist of KISS for 12 years, Meat Loaf (Kulick was a member of Meat’s Bat Out Of Hell touring troupe), or Grand Funk Railroad (with whom he has been a member since 2001). Before he garnered praise from press the world over as a Rock And Roll Fantasy Camp counselor to be both respected and feared…Before all of that, Bruce Kulick was a fan of great rock music… Cream, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Led Zepplin, Yes, The Who. With Bruce Kulick - guitars, Mike Katz - bass & vocal, Guy Bois - drums.

This power trio presents 8 amazing guitar loaded tracks, full of fuzz and wha wah effects, Jack Bruce type vocals, complex arrangements with the pure guitar power of albums such as Randy Holden Population II and Mariani. A very recommended album!

June 7 : Bruce Kulick related - Dreams In The Witch House download
From :  Kiss Related Recordings
The first new track of the 2CD expanded edition of
"A Lovecraftian Rock Opera" can be purchased as a Flac/MP3 download at www.cdbaby.com.
The song entitled "The Refuge of Penitence" was recorded January 2015 at the Stagg Street Studio (Van Nuys, CA) and features  Bruce Kulick on (acoustic guitar) and Douglas Blair of W.A.S.P. (electric guitar).

To expand the run time of 2013's epic "A Lovecraftian Rock Opera" to a more Feature Film / Stage Extravaganza friendly run-time, the Producers of "Dreams in the Witch House: A Lovecraftian Rock Opera have continued to create new material adapted from characters and plot lines from H.P. Lovecraft's Cosmic Horror tale of Witches, Forbidden Knowledge, Advanced Mathematics, Dimensional Travel and the Lovecraftian Mythos, entitled "The Dreams in the Witch House (1932)".

"The Refuge of Penitence" features Stefan Sauk on lead vocals and legendary guitarist Bruce Kulick on a rhapsodic acoustic guitar solo, while Tino Guo delivers an impassioned cello. Other acclaimed musicians include Anders Ringman on acoustic guitar, Jeremy Rubolino on piano and Douglas Blair on electric guitar. A challenging, dynamic piece which blossoms from quiet and acoustic, to dynamically chaotic, the track was mixed by prolific producer, Chris Laney. Musical Composition by RingMan, with lyrics by Mike Dalager and Andrew Leman of The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Socety.

In 2013 Dreams in The Witch House have released an album with the same title "A Lovecraftian Rock Opera", also featuring Bruce Kulick.

May 29 : Bruce Kulick releases new KKB album and single
From : Bruce Kulick
I am excited to announce the release of "Got To "Get Back" from KKB, my first band. The CD opens with a brand-new song, “Got to Get Back," that's catchy and a throwback to my youth. GOT TO GET BACK is available in a collector’s package that includes the CD, an exclusive guitar pick, two-sided photo card, and digital download code.
ORDER HERE

KKB, Bruce Kulick's first band created back in 1974 with his local friends, singer/bassist Mike Katz and drummer Guy Bois, are releasing a brand new single and CD called 'Got To Get Back.' The new single leads off the CD, which continues with 6 more songs they recorded in 1974. The vintage tracks were revisited for 2015, and the original tapes were totally remixed and remastered.

Kulick was fortunate growing up in Jackson Heights, NY to find other talented local musicians who shared the same passion for the British Invasion of rock. They lived within blocks of each other, with drummer Guy's basement being the breeding ground for the musical concoction they were creating. The young band rehearsed for months before entering a studio in NYC capturing music that was urgent, intense and compelling. Sadly, with no clear direction for the group to follow the band never played together live, and ultimately went their separate ways. Bruce continued on in the music world, playing guitar with Michael Bolton, Meatloaf, KISS, and Grand Funk Railroad.

The music KKB recorded in 1974, however, sat idle on a tape in Kulick's closet for many years. In 2008, Bruce bought a TEAC tape deck at a local garage sale and decided to listen to the KKB recording again. He loved it, and shared it with his friends, who all agreed: "You must release this music for people to hear." The vintage tape was transferred and, after some cleaning up of the tracks, KBB - 1974 was released in 2008. The limited-run CD sold out quickly.

An unexpected new chapter for KKB happened in 2013, when Mike found the original session tapes. By using the actual tracks recorded, Kulick had the opportunity to remix, remaster and get creative with this music once again. But the discovery sparked something substantially more interesting than simply polishing up 'old' music'the desire for Bruce and Mike to create a new song for KKB, 40 years after its genesis.

As a result of KKB's rekindled fire, the trio wrote and recorded a new song, 'Got To Get Back," a total throwback to their vintage sound, style and vibe. Each band member recorded their parts in a local studio'Guy in Paris, Mike in New York City, and Bruce in LA. Further adding to KKB's renaissance, a string quartet, scored by Bruce's longtime collaborator Jeremy Rubolino, was added to the ballad "Someday," giving the song a shine that couldn't have been imagined in 1974.
