Warriors of the Rainbow Bridge songs Product Information
Warriors of the Rainbow Bridge album for sale by Molly Hatchet was released May 24, 2005 on the SPV label. For a spell during the '90s, it seemed like the Southern rock audience had dried up considerably. Then, out of the blue, interest in the genre began blossoming once more, as such veterans as Lynyrd Skynyrd started packing 'em in again, and a wide variety of up-and-coming bands proudly wore their Southern rock roots on their sleeves (Nashville Pussy, Kings of Leon, etc.). Sensing this, groups such as Molly Hatchet reappeared on the scene, as evidenced by such new releases as Warriors of the Rainbow Bridge. ...See Full Description

Well, I'll admit one thing... this has to be one of the longest running scams in the history of rock and roll.

||Bury The Hatchet|
I bought this cd because I love Molly Hatchet. I don't consider this Molly Hatchet. Dave Hlubek is listed on the cd but didn't play on it and it shows.

||southern fried rock!|
It may not have the original members but this is a great southern rock cd. The first 3 M.H. albums where nearly perfect but after that the band tried to change their sound and fell apart (thanks to the record company trying to make them a radio friendly band).
By Bob (Buffalo ny)
||Molly, loud and proud Southern Rock!|
This is Molly's metalist record to date. The gang proves that they mean business with this blistering album. Not one slow song on the disc.

Master of the Moon CD (2004)
Warriors of the Rainbow Bridge CD music There's something about a post-millennium album cover that features a giant blue-horned minion of Satan in pre-pounce with an illuminated crystal ball in its leathery hand that simply warms the soul, and the fact that it adorns a record called Master of the Moon can mean only one thing: Dio. Unlike many in the aging metal community, Ronnie James Dio still possesses the same powerful voice that fueled the genre through its late-'70s and '80s heydays, and the reigning dark prince of Elfdom and two-time Black Sabbath frontman is still capable of writing a killer song or two. MOTM resembles earlier works like Last in Line and Sacred Heart in its ability to buffer those one or two great tracks with seven or eight forgettable ones. Luckily, it's the first one out of the gate, "One More for the Road," that packs the biggest wallop. Similar in attack to classics like "We Rock" and "Stand Up and Shout," it sets a breakneck pace for a record that gives up just minutes after the firing of the start gun. What follows is a series of midtempo rockers outfitted with RJD's generic fantasy lyrics about dreams, evil, and being "stronger than the wind," which flirt with creative arrangements and forward-thinking key changes, only to concede to the dark lord of banality. There are moments that inspire, like the snaky Brian May-like riff that weaves through the title track, and the surprisingly political, melodic, and complex "The Man Who Would Be King" -- in true RJD fashion he references the Middle Eastern community as "the people of the sand" -- is among his most satisfying since 1987's "All the Fools Sailed Away," but Dio's on autopilot for the record's majority, resulting in a mediocre romp through the ruins of a land and a time that hath been long forgotten. ~ James ...
Rapture of the Deep CD (2005)
Warriors of the Rainbow Bridge album for sale Deep Purple's 2005 album Rapture of the Deep generally maintains the quality of 2003's surprisingly sturdy Bananas. It's the second release from the re-energized lineup of vocalist Ian Gillan, guitarist Steve Morse, bass guitarist Roger Glover, drummer Ian Paice, and keyboardist Don Airey, who replaced the retired Jon Lord. The band's comfort level has increased, and after nearly a decade onboard, Morse's stamp is all over the place. At first, this guitar genius' presence was noticeable because of what it lacked -- the incredibly distinctive Fender Stratocaster electric guitar tone of Ritchie Blackmore. Thus, sometimes Deep Purple didn't sound like Deep Purple. However, the variety of tones Morse incorporates in his style gives the pioneering heavy metal quintet more sonic weaponry. Airey's long, respectable career as a journeyman keyboardist-for-hire pretty much guaranteed he would largely adopt Lord's organ-based style, at least at first, but he has expanded his sound on Rapture of the Deep too. "Money Talks," "Girls Like That," and "Wrong Man" ride strong riffs and rhythms into decent grooves. "Rapture of the Deep" floats along on a lightly hypnotic wave. The mature ballad "Clearly Quite Absurd" has a lilting, controlled tempo, and it's the biggest surprise on the album; Gillan's singing is appropriately subdued while Airey's piano supplies the beauty and Morse's gradually ascending riffs toward the end build the tension. "MTV" is a vicious, bile-spewing, all-out attack on how the modern music industry treats classic rock/heritage artists, although in 2005 Deep Purple clearly appeals more to VH1 Classic than MTV. Initially, the song risks biting the hand that feeds by correctly criticizing classic rock radio for not playing new music by veteran artists. The last verse is a cannon blast that pummels clueless, uninformed disc jockeys who, during interviews, butcher artists' names ("Mr. Grover 'n' Mr. Gillian"), get facts wrong (misinterpreting the Frank Zappa-inspired "Smoke on the Water" legend), and avoid in-depth discussion of new music (like Bananas) in order to record more station IDs. Rapture of the Deep -- Deep Purple's first album for Eagle Records -- misses equaling Bananas by a notch or two, but it's a good example of how many veteran artists still maintain creative vitality. ~ Bret Adams

|Locked and Loaded CDs (2003)
Warriors of the Rainbow Bridge buy CD music They're not as universally known or respected as Lynyrd Skynyrd are, but Southern rockers Molly Hatchet have been on the road for nearly as long and continue to rock on-stage, as evidenced by the 2003 double-disc set Locked and Loaded. Unlike their "big brothers" in Skynyrd, though, Hatchet contained more apparent ties to heavy metal -- especially in their album cover artwork (which often depicts Conan-like warriors doing their thang), as well as in their guitar riffs. Locked and Loaded is a faithful document of latter-day Hatchet in concert doing what they do best -- laying down tough blues-boogie, and to borrow a line from the late great Ronnie Van Zant, "singing songs about the Southland." Standouts include such biker favorites as the set-closing "Flirtin' with Disaster," "Bounty Hunter," and the surprisingly melodic "Fall of the Peacemakers." Molly Hatchet will never be credited with trailblazing the Southern rock genre, yet they should be given props for sticking to their guns and flying the Southern rock flag during the late '70s, when such big guns as Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers were out of commission. And as evidenced by Locked and Loaded, they're still at it all these years later. ~ Greg Prato

|25th Anniversary: Best of Re-Recorded CD (2004)
Warriors of the Rainbow Bridge album for sale The award for being the best band to imitate Molly Hatchet is....Molly Hatchet. On this 25th Anniversary re-recording of the band's biggest hits -- and best tracks from each of their albums, from their self-titled debut to Lightning Strikes Twice -- the current incarnation of MH, led by guitarist and producer Bobby Ingram, offers startlingly faithful reads of the original band's material. What makes this so unique is that there are no original members of MH in this lineup, and singer Phil McCormack sounds so much like founding vocalist Danny Brown it's almost scary. Admittedly, with this description, it is tempting to write the Hatch off without a listen, but that would be a mistake. These are not reinterpretations of the classics, nor are they toothless renderings. The big, roaring guitars that sound like chainsaws in the Everglades are abundant, trashy, full of loud and proud rowdiness that makes Southern Rock so singular in both its excesses and in its battered, drunken heart. Given how much a part of rock & roll history these songs are, it is unfair and unwarranted to compare these versions with the original performances. The way in which an album like this makes the most sense -- especially given that this is a wholly different band -- is to hear these as covers. And as covers, these versions burn. The hell-raising, balls-to-the-wall emotion in them is everywhere evident, and if anything, they are more adrenaline-infused, the guitars -- as big as they were on the originals -- are dwarfed by the ferocious razored roar of these. This is a credible outing and Hatchet fans will be delighted. As for everyone else, if this isn't your thing, you are unlikely to be converted. If you are at all a hard rock or biker band fan, this will rock your socks off. ~ Thom Jurek
