Reversed Image Unlimited To Release
CHUCK MOSLEY’S WILL RAP OVER HARD ROCK FOR FOOD
Former Faith No More Vocalist’s New Solo Album
~August 11, 2009~
New York, NY (July 6, 2009)—Rap and Rock music, though viewed through the public lens as worlds apart, are not as distant from one another as they seem. The energy, aggression, and valiant spirit make them the perfect vehicles for unabashed expression, and rap-rock veteran Chuck Mosley realizes this. He is the embodiment of the unification of these two musical forces, as well as the various musical influences he has accumulated as both an artist and an avid music fan. On August 11, he releases his first solo album Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food via Cleveland-based label Reversed Image Unlimited.
Mosley’s return with Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food showcases the Godfather of rap-metal seamlessly blending rock, hip-hop, metal, punk and funk. Recounting his previous work, Mosley, as he describes it, would “rant to the beat.” On his latest effort, Mosley’s musical stew combines this approach with an exploration of his vocal range. It’s apparent that he chose to let his amalgam of cultural saturations melt into this new album, which he describes as “just very normal for me.”
Will Rap… was produced by multi-platinum award-winning producer/engineer Michael Seifert (Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Fountains of Wayne, and most recently Reversed Image electro-rockers THIS IS A SHAKEDOWN!). Backed by his band Vanduls Ugenst Allliderasy, Chuck was also joined by a cast of characters including John 5 (Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson), Roddy Bottum (Faith No More, Imperial Drag), Michael Cartellone (Lynyrd Skynyrd), and RIU label-mate Leah Lou to contribute to the record.Korn frontman Jonathan Davis (courtesy of Warner Bros. Records), who attributes Mosley as a massive influence, also makes an appearance on the lead single “The Enabler”.
In the 70s, Mosley was just a kid growing up in Southern California with no limitations on his tastes in music. A musical sponge, he studied classical piano for 10 years, while soaking up influences from jazz, rock, pop, and early rap. Eventually signing on to front Faith No More, he crafted these influences to pioneer a whole new take on heavy music. Bringing the rhythm and raw emotion of rap vocals to the riff-laden, chaotic-nature of rock, Mosley became an innovator which many musical acts would emulate, including Korn, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, and Kid Rock. He would later front legendary hardcore/reggae group the Bad Brains as well.
