Product Description

As the title indicates, Facemelter--the anticipated new recording from Y&T is a hard rockin', song-oriented album that lives up to its name: it captures the band's raw energy and tightness that they've become known for. Featuring heavy grooves, powerful guitars, and strong melodies, the band shows their versatility, delivering a range of high-energy rockers, mid-tempo head-bangers, modern rock grooves, majestic ballads, and signature Y&T rock anthems. To mark the return, the band engaged John Taylor Dismukes--the same artist who designed covers for Y&T's classic albums Mean Streak, Black Tiger, and In Rock We Trust--to create the amazing art of Facemelter. Face-melting is a term that has been with Y&T since the mid-'70s, when a rabid fan ran backstage and told the band--you melted my face--which inspired the group's first publishing company: Facemelting Music. If you haven't yet taken Y&T's new album for a ride, grab your leathers, strap yourself in, and prepare to have your face melted.

Review

'Facemelter' certainly has the potential to leave a lasting imprint on the ever more illustrious history of this most extraordinary of bands. ...I can't stop playing the damn thing! --Dave Cockett, Powerplay Magazine, June 2010

…so much balls and soul that it's hard to imagine any self-respecting fan of loud rock 'n' roll resisting their charms. --Classic Rock Magazine, July 2010

With a great deal of style and music ability the boys of Y&T have written performed and produced what should be a critically acclaimed work of art. taking on many topics from women to tossing off and cyber trolers who bash the band on their own website Meniketti Kennimore and Nyman have written a classic rock album that no serious fan can live without. The leads are great the melodies are great the lyrics are edgy this is simply the best work Y&T has done since their best selling in rock we trust cd download it today and don't forget the bonus tracks. Guitar god Dave Meniketti has shown the band still has it in their 37th year dont pass this one buy

been a fan of y&t since the early days - -- hard to compare this to the old classics - in rock we trust / black tiger / etc those are easily 5 star efforts - - - -the energy isnt what it used to but the guys arent 20 either...

after the first 2 or 3 listens i started to get a little more used to the new sound - dont get me wrong there is talent in the band and the production is pretty good too...

all in all i like the album but miss the zest the band had in the early days but still a solid effort . . . worth a listen - - -

BTW - the solo works by Meneketti are much better than this album and worth a try by those interested in hot blues / rock - - -some of the material there is almost on par with the Gary Moore Blues CD's which isnt an easy feat by any stretch

Facemelter may have been Y&T's first studio album in 13 years but the proof is in the pudding. Facemelter shows that Y&T is still one of the best hard rock bands out there. The musical climate may have changed since the height of their commercial success but the band continues to deliver. Dave Meniketti's vocals are still strong and his guitar playing is still top notch and the performances are still very good. Their sound has become more classic rock than hard rock at this point but if the songs and performances are strong, that is what matters. No classics here like "I Believe In You" or "Lipstick and Leather" but nothing disappoints. The best tracks here are "I'm Coming Home" and "I Want Your Money" which both have a killer hook and memorable chorus. "Blind Patriot" and "Don't Bring Me Down" are heavier and more reminiscent of their earlier work and both are scorchers. Y&T always had a knack for the power ballad and "If You Want Me" is another good one if not a classic. From here, mid-tempo hard rockers rule the day as "How Long", "Wild Child", "Shine On", and "Gonna Go Blind" are solid and are well played. All told, Y&T still deliver on Facemelter and are still great live (saw them twice in 2015). Dave has mentioned that a new album will be released in 2016 and I am looking forward to purchasing and hearing it.

Facemelter, released in May of 2010, is the twelfth studio release of Y&T, and is their first album of original studio material since 1997's Endangered Species.

There are a number of bands out there that, despite making awesome music for years, never seem to get the proper credit. Y&T, orginally known as Yesterday and Today, is perhaps the most undeserving victim of this fate. The band created an awesome hard rock sound no one else could match, and had their share of pop-flavored hard rock tunes that were moderately successful. Sadly, these poppy tunes becoming the band's most popular ones have resulted in many people overlooking the majority of the band's studio outbut, which is far heavier, and better musically.

Over the years, the band's sound has been all over the place. They began life as a standard AOR-style outfit in the latter half of the 70s, gradually evolving to a hard rock band, and peaking in popularity in the mid 80s when they took on a more commercial sound. The band continues making music to this day.

After over a decade, Facemelter gives us the latest studio output from Y&T. I admit, I was skeptical when this album came out, but it wasn't long before I gave it a listen and it started to win me over. The band's sound on this album is straight-up classic-style hard rock, but there are some modern rock elements to their sound on here as well. The result is a fresh sound that is distinctly Y&T's own, but at the same time is all new. The band is on fire throughout this whole album, and it is easily my favorite release from the band since the 1980s. Usually a band dragging elements of modern rock into their music is a cheap attempt at commercialization, but with Y&T if combines beautifully with their classic hard rock sound.

I am not a "long time" Y&T fan. I only discovered them maybe 2 years back. But as I kept acquiring more and more Y&T material they kept rising up my list of favorites and today I'd probably put them at the top. From "Earthshaker" to "Ten" I love it all. Awesome vocals, awesome guitar work, great catchy melodic songs. What's not to like? Why do more people not know about this band?

When I found out a new CD was released I couldn't not wait to hear it. And they sure deliver the goods. Dave's vocals to me sound a good as ever and the guitar playing - need I say more. Just incredible. The guitar work on "If You Want Me" alone is worth the price of admission. One of my favorite Y&T tracks ever. No bad songs on this disc.

I had the chance to see Y&T live at the Hard Rock Cafe in Pittsburgh this summer. I have been to many shows - Van Halen, Ted Nugent, Kiss, Iron Maiden, etc. - but this was one of the best. They played for over 2.5 hours, took requests from the audience, signed autographs. Just kicked ass. See this band live!
