Vinnie Vincent Invasion was an American glam metal band formed in 1984 by former KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent.Forming the band in the mid-1980s, Vinnie Vincent recruited bassist Dana Strum, who had served as a talent scout in L.A., recruiting band members for the likes of Ozzy Osbourne. Because he had found both Jake E. Lee and the late Randy Rhoads for Ozzy Osbourne, Paul Stanley had contacted Osbourne to inquire about where he found the guitarists, and was given Strum's name. Unable to find anyone KISS considered to be on Vincent's level, Strum decided to find Vincent himself in hopes of working together. Bobby Rock came on board as the drummer. With the nucleus of the band completed, the band searched for a lead vocalist.Former Journey singer Robert Fleischman provided vocals on Vinnie Vincent Invasion's self-titled debut album. The record included primarily the style of glam metal, with much of it re-worked versions of demos Vincent recorded in 1982 with former New England members Hirsch Gardner, Gary Shea, and Jimmy Waldo under the band name Warrior, with Vincent essentially replacing John Fannon as guitarist and vocalist. Warrior disbanded when Vincent was selected to be a member of KISS.Fleischman exited the band during a contract dispute and a video was produced for the song "Boyz Are Gonna Rock" with new vocalist Mark Slaughter lipsyncing over Fleischman's vocal track. With Slaughter now on board, the band released their second album, All Systems Go in May 1988. The album featured one of the group's best-known hits, "Ashes to Ashes," and "Love Kills," which appeared on the A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master soundtrack.Later in 1988, the band was released from their contract with Chrysalis Records. Having grown annoyed with what they perceived to be Vincent's domination of the project, Slaughter and Strum left to form the band Slaughter, which would go on to have success. Bobby Rock has played as a touring drummer for Slaughter, but was not in the initial line-up. After Vinnie Vincent Invasion broke up, he briefly joined Nitro, later Nelson, and then went on to play as a session musician with Gary Hoey and other bands. Subsequent to the band's release from their Chrysalis contract and the resultant split of Slaughter and Strum to form Slaughter, Vincent reunited with original Vinnie Vincent Invasion vocalist Robert Fleischman and recorded the unreleased album Pyro Messiah (aka Guitars From Hell). Andre LaBelle, (drummer from 1989 to 1992), along with Fleischman, formed a new band "The Sky" in 2011.A tribute album entitled KISS MY ANKH: A Tribute To Vinnie Vincent was released by SplitScreen Entertainment on August 27, 2008. The album consists of new recordings of songs from Vincent's careers with KISS and Vinnie Vincent Invasion. Featured artists include Steve Brown of Trixter, Troy Patrick Farrell of White Lion, T.J. Racer of Nitro, Sheldon Tarsha of Adler's Appetite, Chris Caffery of Savatage and Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Ryan Roxie and Rick Marty of Alice Cooper, and rock and roll comic C.C. Banana, who performs a parody of the KISS song "Unholy" (rewritten as a roast of Danger Danger vocalist Ted Poley).
More form the recent Universal Music Japan reissue series 2016: VINNIE VINCENT INVASION second opus "All Systems Go" on SHM-CD remastered.After its melting 1986 debut album, the Vinnie Vincent Invasion followed up with an album - according to times, more melodic hard rock oriented.The band had a successful debut under their belts, toured the world under the tutelage of greats like Alice Cooper & Iron Maiden, and an obviously broader budget for the aptly titled "All Systems Go" which featured fuller sound and cleaner, polished production.On "All Systems Go" Vinnie shreds like always but the songwriting is more focused on catchiness, wrapped by a glossy sound. Now with hot vocalist Mark Slaughter firmly established as frontman providing consistency, he is helped by the great Jeff Scott Soto on back up vocals / harmonies."All Systems Go" epitomizes the glammy hard rock sound; lightning-fast guitars, high-pitched vocals, sleazy lyrics... and rocks at it.The album begins with one of my favorite tracks, 'Ashes to Ashes'. Upon close listening, you can hear the incredible guitar work done by Vinnie on this song. Acoustic, electric, 12-string, wah-wah, a cool Van Halen Cathedral-like sound effect during the solo - Vinnie really kicks your ass.'Breakout' also has a great guitar riff opening. This is one of the heavier tracks on the album with a cool chorus and a great drum beat from Bobby Rock (later in Nelson).'Dirty Rhythm', 'Naughty Naughty' and 'Heavy Pettin' are Grade A filth that up the raunchy level on the album with great choruses, probably the catchiest songs on the record, but lyrics probably kept them off the top 40 charts! On 'Heavy Pettin' Vinnie alludes to his love for the young 'uns: "Sweet little child... she's sweet as virgin clover she's my baby love doll". Hmmm...pretty subtle?! They just don't write songs like this anymore!!'Love Kills' (also featured in the film A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master) is another favorite and a classic from the genre. It’s a real departure for Vinnie in terms of songwriting, too, as he slows things down to create a strong power ballad with a catchy chorus and some excellent acoustic guitar.'Burn' follows with a searing guitar performance, especially on the solo. Speaking of solos, Vinnie tackles the 'Star Spangled Banner' solely on guitar before the kicking rocker 'Let Freedom Rock'.'That Time Of Year' is one of those forgotten songs that should have been a hit. It's a superb midtempo melodic hard rock tune plenty of '80s magic and even some AOR feel on it. It is definitely one of the stronger songs on the album and should have fit in perfectly with the commercial stuff that was filling up MTV's The Headbanger's Ball at the time. Unfortunately, as a single, it fell flat.The highly melodic, harmonized vocals of 'Ecstasy' always reminded me Styper's finest moments, then 'Deeper and Deeper' rocks with a lovely hair metal vice.The CD version included 2 extra tracks: 'The Meltdown' is a mish-mash of instrumentals from drummer Bobby Rock and some indescribable effects from Vincent. If Vinnie is the over-indulgent control freak that everyone claims he is, why does he let his drummer showcase his skin-pounding chops in a bombast style like 'The Meltdown'?The answer of course is to lead into a 4-minute ego trip for himself called 'Ya Know- I'm Pretty Shot' where he fiddles with some classical guitarwork and a bluesy riff in the middle. Vinnie shows his stuff by moving beyond the wailing solos that he is famous for and concentrates on what he learned in beginner guitar lessons: picking. Pretty impressive stuff. There is also an evil-sounding voice at the end of the track demanding you to "tell your friends about us"."All Systems Go" is a criminally underrated Melodic Hard Rock album. Unfortunately Mark Slaughter wanted a solo career and the Vinnie Vincent Invasion announced their breakup 3 months after the album’s release. Mark and Dana Strum would go on to success with Slaughter, and Bobby Rock would resurface with Nitro, as well as on Nelson’s 1990 album After The Rain.Vinnie Vincent Invasion was the vehicle for Vinnie Vincent to show his true talent which he wasn't able to do while in Kiss. Sadly, instead of creating new music after this album he make a fool out of himself with court cases against Kiss members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons claiming songwriting rights and spousal abuse charges, but all Vinnie Vincent Invasion material remains as a truly good exponent of US '80s hard rock.
