WhoCares charity single will get a North American release on June 27th via Eagle Rock. This is the release date for a physical CD. European CD release date is now set for May 24th (although Amazon.co.uk lists it as May 9th). Download release for both markets is still set for May 6th. Confused? Me too.

  • Drums: Randy Clarke
  • Bass: Rodney Appleby
  • Hammond organ: Jesse O’Brien

    OOMM, is slightly menacing, a bit digitized vocal sound, like on Gillan’s Inn. It’s a pretty powerful song that works very well. I recommend it played loud the first time, as the sound is bright but also noisy, so with extra volume it works best. Not something to be listened to at low volume, let’s put it that way, you have to rock to it or it’s nothing special. Holy Water is another story, it has the Gillan/Purple vibe with Iommi adding his element that can’t be denied. But mostly it’s Gillan solo or even Purple vein. Listen to one after the other and it’s very enjoyable, leaves one begging for more indeed.

    It’s truly worth the wait and I aggree with Larry as it leaves you wanting more. The intro to Holy Water on the first play gets you thinking but to me its one of those very catchy songs.Out Of My Mind sound is trademark. I hope they have made plans to record more songs and also get plenty of support for their project from these two songs.
