Sebastian Bach, ’18 & Life’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on
Although it’s been nearly 25 years since the world got its first look at Sebastian Bach as the voice behind Skid Row, it seems like Bach himself is just getting started. We are pleased to present an exclusive video of ’18 & Life‘ from his new live CD/DVD ABachalypse Now.’
This new concert document proves that the title of his most recent studio album ‘Kicking & Screaming’ was indeed very appropriate. The legendary hard rock vocalist hasn’t lost an inch of the vigor that was first on display when he made his national debut in the late ‘80s. Onstage, Bach remains a commanding presence, no matter what the size of the crowd might be.
In the above exclusive clip of the Skid Row classic ‘18 & Life,’ Bach and his band hold court in front of an enormous festival crowd at Hellfest in France. Prior to the start of the song, the cameras spend nearly a minute spotlighting the magnitude of the scene, with a hazy smoke rising from the stage, as the camera provides a sweeping view from left to right, showing an endless stream of people as far as the eye can see.
And that’s just one gig in the “Summer of Bach,” as ‘ABachalypse Now” reveals over the course of the three complete shows that are included on the DVD portion of the new release. Because while Bach is onstage in front of tens of thousands at Hellfest, another gig finds him bringing the same air raid siren intensity in front of a more intimately sized crowd at L.A.’s Club Nokia. Throughout the three hours of footage included in ‘ABachalypse,’ Bach and his band never fail to rage at anything less than full throttle.
Released on March 26, ‘Abachalypse Now’ is available in a special two CD/one DVD package (or standalone DVD) and presents what is perhaps the most comprehensive view of Bach’s solo career to date.
