RATED X is an exciting new super band

RATED X is an exciting and fresh new band built around the talents of four heavy-hitters of American hard rock. Comprised of vocalist Joe Lynn Turner (#Rainbow, Deep Purple, Yngwie Malmsteen), guitarist Karl Cochran (Ace Frehley), fretless-bass monster Tony Franklin (The Firm, Blue Murder, #Whitesnake) and iconic drummer Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge, Rod Stewart, #Ozzy Osbourne, Blue Murder, King Kobra), RATED-X came about when Frontiers Records’ President Serafino Perugino suggested to Turner that it was time to put together a band that could highlight his abilities in the #classic hard rock musical setting.

Appice was the first one who was called in to be part of it, given the long history of friendship and musical camaraderie with Turner. After a quick search, Tony Franklin soon agreed to be part of the band – thus reuniting the rhythm section that was featured on the legendary debut album by Blue Murder. The last step was to find the right guitarist and who could be better than long time Joe Lynn Turner collaborator, Karl Cochran: a flamboyant #guitar player that can masterfully handle the Arena #Rock style, with a Classic Hard #Rock sensibility second to none.

Under the executive direction of Perugino and the watchful eye of Frontiers in-house producer Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Livin’ Out Loud, Voodoo Circle), demos were laid down during the last months of 2013.

With ties to some of heavy rock’s most seminal bands – Rainbow, Deep Purple, Blue Murder and Vanilla Fudge – RATED X is the definition of a supergroup.
