John 5 Season of the Witch

John 5 Season of the Witch

2Loud2oldmusic.com have reviewed the latest John 5 album “Season of the Witch” made with his band The Creatures. The site gives a track by track review of the album.

They conclude: “The album is already one of my favorites for the year. A lot of the rock albums so far haven’t been killing it with me, but this one was a breath of fresh air. I can never get enough of John 5 so it was nice to have some new music in between Rob Zombie albums. This is a must have for any rock fine and especially a John 5 fan.”

John 5 Season of the Witch

John 5 Season of the Witch

It has been TWO weeks since Season of the Witch, the brand new album from John 5 and The Creatures, was released. The feedback from fans and reviewers has been fantastic.

Media Mike gives the album a 4 out of 5 review calling the album John 5’s “most diverse“.

Don’t let the albums brief runtime fool you as John 5 and the Creatures pack every ounce of musicality they can in to each and every second of “Season of the Witch”. Easily his most diverse solo effort to date John 5 showcases his ability and diverse tastes by blending country, funk, rock and metal with his love for the macabre into one cohesive package that provides listeners with something new each time you listen.”

[Review] John 5 and The Creatures slay the DNA Lounge

John 5 and The Creatures are currently on tour in support of their new album Season of the Witch, which came out on March 3rd.

Over the weekend, the band played at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco and SF Sonic were there to watch and review the show.

Making his way to the stage through the tightly compacted smaller venue at DNA, John 5 instantly generated an auditory tornado of extremely fast finger tapping and incredible super sweeps with a new song, “Guitars, Tits & Monsters.” The pale, painted, grim axeman stuns with his limitless capabilities for capturing every maneuver possible and with a diverse array of guitars to do so with his main rig being the very sleek signature Squire, the great golden J5 Telecaster perfectly equipped with the well-used secret weapon of the kill switch.”

[Review] Season of the Witch is “a record that you will marvel at for a long time to come”.

John 5 Season of the Witch

John 5 Season of the Witch

A 5 out of 5 Devils Horns rating from Mike’s Music and Concert Blog for the brand new John 5 and The Creatures album Season of the Witch.

There is literally something for everyone here, from searing metal to country/bluegrass. I can’t imagine a record with more variety and crossed-genres than this one. The lack of vocals really allows you to focus on the mayhem unfolding. Make no mistake, this is a true labor of love. You can hear it in every note.”

[REVIEW] Metal Assault gives Season of the Witch a 10 out of 10 rating!

John 5 Season of the Witch

John 5 Season of the Witch

The team at Metal Assault have listened to the brand new John 5 and The Creatures album Season of the Witch which came out last Friday (3/3) and given it an outstanding TEN out of TEN rating!

‘Season of the Witch’ isn’t just a showing of John 5’s technical skill from first track to last, it gives insight to how truly diverse John 5 can be when stretching his writing muscle. You’d probably think you’re getting a typical heavy metal side project just from the packaging of this record; it’s a John 5 record called ‘Season of the Witch’ that gives you every indication it will not go in the direction it takes.”

[Review] Yesterdaze News reviews John 5 and The Creatures “killer” show at Tony V’s Garage

John 5 and The Creatures played the second show of the Season of the Witch tour at Tony V’s Garage in Everett, WA. Yesterdaze News were there to watch and gave this review:

The show was one killer guitar lick after another accompanied by wardrobe/accessory changes and of course multiple axe changes through out the show. There were many styles of guitars, each suited to the perfect song and a fun theatrical experience that comes from a John 5 show. There were lights, co2 cannons, masks, fog, light up guitars, a lava liquid filled guitar, tiny ones and banjo styles.”

[Review] Cryptic Rock gives Season of the Witch 4.5 out of 5

John 5 Matt Wilson Images

A fantastic 4.5 out of 5 review of the latest John 5 album Season of the Witch, released on March 3 2017.

From Cryptic Rock: “Those familiar with John 5’s previous offerings, there is no mistaking his guitar playing for anyone else, meaning he is simply one of a kind. His current team consisting of Ian Ross on bass and Rodger Carter on drums are also very crucial to the all instrumental album. This is especially true for Ross as the bassist, who provides a special dynamic of deep heavy bass jamming that complements John 5’s playing in just the right way. The drumming of Carter also completes the versatile musical range of John 5, going from Bluegrass, to Industrial, to Western Swing, to Rock, and back again. This is all accomplished in a very refreshing intensity on Season Of The Witch.”

Amps and Green Screens: “If you’re a guitar fan then you simply must own Careful with That Axe”

This is my Rifle John 5

Another review of the brand new John 5 album, ‘Careful With That Axe’, this time from Amps and Green Screens.

Enjoy!

I’m pretty picky about a lot of things which should come as a shock to none of you. And one of the things I’m extremely picky about is guitar albums. Maybe it’s because I can barely play myself, but more often than not it’s just too much: too much noodling, too many over the top solos screaming, “Look what I can do!”, and too much jacking off all over the fret board. Which brings me to JOHN 5 (you know who the fuck he is, stop it!) and his new album Careful with That Axe, out August 12 via 60 Cycle Hum. Now I was a YUUUGE fan of his last one God Told Me To, and it landed pretty high up on my Top 10 albums of 2012; an absolute masterpiece that was. So yeah, I was dying to see how this record turned out.  (more…)

Bloody Good Horror Reviews ‘Careful With That Axe’

Careful with that Axe

With just two days to go until John 5’s eight studio album, ‘Careful With That Axe‘ is released on digital music sites (with a physical release expected in the next couple of months), you may want to get a taste of what others are now saying, having had a chance to review the album.

Bloody Good Horror are one of the first to submit their review and here is is for you to read – incase you’re still trying to make your mind up; “The virtuosity and versatility of John 5 is the subtext of the record and the decision to put melody first is a great one. “Careful With That Axe” is a guitar album, yes, but a highly enjoyable one and an easy recommendation for fans of just about anything.”

sputnikmusic.com reviews God Told Me To

Yet another review in for John 5’s new album God Told Me To which was released today officially. This time from SputnickMusic.

Review by insomniac15.

Summary: John 5’s most accessible and interesting work.
God Told Me To is a departure from the usual John 5 albums, bringing a much needed change to his solo career. This time he traded all the bluegrass with lovely acoustic numbers, thus marking John’s not only one of his most interesting albums, but also one of his most accessible work, if not the most.

Read this fantastic review from TargetAudience Magazine for John 5’s new album ‘God Told Me To‘.

Review by Russell Eldridge

Half of God Told Me To will appease even the pickiest of shred fans and the other half will soothe the souls of those more into the wooden tones of delta acoustic, highland melodies, and acoustic shredders

John5′s new CD God Told Me To is an exciting, scary, sexy, and twisted shred masterpiece. (more…)
