HADES SINGER ALAN TECCHIO INTERVIEW – FROM THE VAULT

HADES SINGER ALAN TECCHIO INTERVIEW – FROM THE VAULT

Support: This past April, we took a trip back to New Jersey to a band called Hades who are one of my personal favorites (You can read the original post here) and I was lucky enough to have the pleasure of interviewing singer Alan Tecchio about the band, the upcoming Headbangers Open Air Festival and his thoughts on the music scene today. Thank you so much for taking the time to interview with HearEvil. First let’s talk about what’s going on with Hades at the moment! AT: We will be doing the Headbangers Open Air Festival this coming July. Dan Lorenzo had announced that he would not be performing and when I reached out to the other members they informed me that they were not interested in doing the show as well since Dan wasn‘t doing it.  Since we had been booked to do the show for awhile and are headlining the second night of the festival, I put together a band which includes Jack Frost (Seven Witches) and Sean Tarr (TNA) on guitar, Kevin Bolembach (Non-Fiction, Hades) on bass and Ron Lipnicki-Drums (Overkill, Hades). The show will be billed “A Night of Hades with Alan Tecchio and Friends.” and we’ll be doing songs off the first two records Resisting Success and If At First You Don’t Succeed.  I am honored and flattered that people want to see Hades and I don’t want to disappoint the fans. Hopefully everyone will understand because I personally hate it when I go see a band and the only original member of the band is the singer. I don’t want to be that...
HADES SINGER ANNOUNCES BAND LINEUP FOR HEADBANGERS OPEN AIR SHOW

HADES SINGER ANNOUNCES BAND LINEUP FOR HEADBANGERS OPEN AIR SHOW

Support: Hades lead singer Alan Tecchio released the following statement regarding the lineup for the Hades set for the Headbangers Open Air Festival this summer, July 26-28 in Brande-Hörnerkirchen, Germany. Alan said via his Facebook page: “It is official, I now have a full band lined up for the Headbanger’s Open  Air festival in Germany this July… Since Hades cannot actually play,  we are billing the show as: “A Night Of Hades with Alan Tecchio &  Friends.” “Headlining the Friday night show will be: Me-Vocals Kevin Bolembach-Bass (Non Fiction, Hades) Jack Frost-Guitar (Seven Witches, Savatage) Sean Tarr-Guitar (TNA) & Ron Lipnicki-Drums (Overkill, Hades).” A few weeks ago, Hades guitarist and founder Dan Lorenzo issued a statement that he would not be able to perform at the festival and in turn some of the remaining members of the band also chose not to participate in the show as well.  Since the promoters had been advertising the show for many months, Alan wanted to honor their commitment and not disappoint the fans. The setlist will consist of music from the first two Hades albums Resisting Success and If At First You Don’t Succeed.

HADES – FROM THE VAULT

HADES – FROM THE VAULT

Support: Today we take a trip back to New Jersey and visit a band that is a personal favorite of mine, Hades. Formed in 1978 by guitarist Dan Lorenzo, Hades began playing the circuit and released their 7″ EP “Deliver Us From Evil” in 1982. After a few lineup changes, the band handed out some demos and rehersal tapes throughout the underground scene and interviewed with some fanzines in the NY/NJ area. Hades was soon heard on the Megaforce compilation “Born To Metalize” and Metal Blade’s “Metal Massacre VI.” This led to Torrid Records signing Hades and releasing their first full-length album “Resisting Success” in 1987. The album recorded in New Jersey showcases Hades talent, great vocals, blistering guitars and songs that keep you hooked in from the first track “The Leaders?” all the way to the 3 part “Masque of the Red Death.” 1988 saw the release of their second full length album “If At First You Don’t Succeed” which again showcased the  band who were now opening for Slayer, Anthrax, Overkill, Megadeth and Testament to name a few and playing at many different venues including the now defunct L’amour Brooklyn and The Chance in Poughkeepsie, NY. Hades left for their first European tour in 1989 but unfortunately it was to be their last. Tensions between the band members caused the band to break up and members Dan Lorenzo and Alan Tecchio formed Non Fiction and drummer Tom Coombs ended up joining Doro Pesch’s band. Jimmy Schulman went on to lend his services to a few bands and Ed Fuhrman became involved with martial arts and eventually returned to music. In 1991, Hades released “Live On Location” which was taped at the...
