The 2nd single from Maxxxwell’s upcoming solo album, When The Clock Strikes Metal, has been released. Featuring Michael Yancy on vocals, the track is a cover of U.D.O.’s “Black Widow” originally from the 1987 Animal House album.
When The Clock Strikes Metal will be Maxxxwell’s sixth solo album and features a host of guest vocalists and guitarists, playing a mix of original songs and carefully selected covers. In addition to his upcoming solo album, Maxxxwell continues to work with Hellion on a new live album, new studio tracks and touring. Hellion is scheduled to perform on the East Coast Monsters of Rock Cruise in February. Maxxxwell also hosts a weekly radio show on Metal Express Radio, playing select Power Metal and Classic Metal cuts.
I’ve tried to pick out cover songs that are a little off the beaten path. This is one of my favorite deep cuts from the U.D.O./Accept catalog. It’s a hard hitting classic metal track that was a total blast to record. It was also great to work with Michael Yancy again. He always brings a lot of enthusiasm to the project and think it really comes through in the finished product.
