Something Different: Kopek

Check out this band, Kopek. The trio is Irish and there's definitely a cool vibe going on here. Their debut, White Collar Lies is available now. Some people are saying this band is alternative - I disagree. They just sound like rock to me. Check out this clip for "Love is Dead."

Love this band. I hear some '80s glam rock in their sound. Kind of Buckcherry meets The Music meets LA Guns or something.

I enjoyed this track enough that I may pick up this album if I get a chance. Thanks for the heads up.

chick is hot, the chorus was catchy but the overkill on dead was a little much overall not sure what to make of the song will have to play a few more times

We got this album at FM 90 this week and still trying to figure out where we are going to put it. A lot of different sounds and influences on it.

It's got it all!


And I live all the name checking...

Who is and who isn't dead...

Grunge is dead and Heavy Metal is not dead, according to these guyz! Frickin' awesome.

Okay, it is missing one thing, which they maybe even thought of and decided it would be too heavy handed...

They shoulda had one last tattoo drawing itself in at the end... and that would be one with the words, "The End" or "Fin" on the chick's a*s cheek!

And Rock and Roll is NOT Dead!

I agree, KOPEK is not alternative, (can be interpreted as such for they are so "new" with their sound). I liken KOPEK as Modern Rock/Hard Rock. This is a special band, a band that has brought a fired up new sound and "vibe" as you called it to Rock.

"Rock & Roll is dead" in the lyrics refers to no bands trying anything "new". If anything, KOPEK knows Rock 'N' Roll isn't dead! Daniel Jordan has a great personality to go along with his Hard Rockin' vocals... this band is going to be HUGE. Very HUGE.
