Kill All Control - album

George Lynch releases "Kill All Control" on 4 July 2011 via Edel's international rock label, earMUSIC distributed in the UK & Republic of Ireland by Absolute via Universal. He is one of today's most dynamic and influential guitarists and this is a solo record that will excite long time fans and welcome in many new listeners. Best known for his work with Dokken and then Lynch Mob, Lynch has enjoyed many other projects, such as Souls of We and Lynch/Pilsen which allowed him to explore and develop further.

"Kill All Control" began as a follow up to "Let the Truth Be Known", the first Souls of We release. As he began writing with London Le Grand (Brides Of Destruction; Soul Of We), the project took a new direction, aided by Powerman 5000 drummer Adrian Ost and bass player Nic Spec (Run, Run, Run). Lynch says, "The creative juices flowed and we wrote most of the CD in ten days. I experimented with additional singers, including Will Marten (Earshot), Marc Torien (Bullet Boys), and Keith St. John (Montrose)".

During the 1980's, his superb riffs, solos and songwriting, elevated Dokken above most other bands in the genre. Over a dozen hit singles and a string of platinum albums, including "Under Lock and Key" and "Back for the Attack", have stood the test of time. Lynch then switched gears with his new band, Lynch Mob, adding a bluesy, smoky approach complemented by soulful, heartfelt vocals. Mr. Scary, as he is known to his fans, went solo in 1993 with the incredible "Sacred Groove", experimenting with many sounds, singers and songwriters ? a formula now copied by so many greats. Seeking to reconnect with the magic that defined his earlier career, George reformed Lynch Mob and released "Smoke and Mirrors" to great acclaim.

"Kill All Control" combines many of Lynch's styles, and even harks back to early days with a follow up to Dokken track 'Mr.Scary' - 'Son Of Scary' features Fred Coury of Cinderella on drums. Lynch wants the album to "create an eclectic listening experience" for fans. Job done.
