Rhino Bucket Vocalist Talks About Upcoming Album


November 26, 2008

In a recent interview with Sleaze Roxx, Rhino Bucket frontman/guitarist Georg Dolivo talked about the band’s upcoming CD release, which is currently being mixed.

Sleaze Roxx: So you guys are working on a new album?

Georg Dolivo: Yeah absolutely. We’re in the final mixing stages right now. We were excited about it while we were recording because it sounded really well. But now that we’re mixing it all together it’s pretty life affirming. I don’t know how to say it. It’s the best album we’ve ever done. Reeve Downes and Brian Forsythe really stepped up during the song writing process so it’s really really awesome.

Sleaze Roxx: What’s been the inspiration for the songs this time around?

Georg Dolivo: We’ve always tried to put out the best songs possible and do the best shows possible. For a long time the main song writers were Greg Fields and myself. When Greg left, we still kind of stayed a little bit in that same mode. Reeve has been in Rhino Bucket since day one and Brian used to be in Kix, but has been in Rhino Bucket for the last 7 or 8 years. With them coming in and bringing their own twist to it, it’s kind of changed everything. It’s still got that Rhino Bucket beat and of course I don’t sing, I scream, but there’s a little bit more flavor to it. We kind of like threw some yellow curry on it.

Sleaze Roxx: What are some ways Reeve Downes and Brian Forsythe have contributed?

Georg Dolivo: To be honest with you it’s always been a band thing. Even back in the day when Greg and I wrote most of the stuff, we’d still get together with Reeve and Liam Jason and create the songs as a band. The difference really with this album is that this time, they came in with complete songs. So what was usually my responsibility, to come in with a song with lyrics and all that sort of stuff, they did that too. There was still collaboration between all of us but it certainly had a totally different twist to it and it sounds great. I went down to the studio last night and listened to it for hours with Simon Wright. We have Simon Wright with us on drums this time. We haven’t had him with us since ’92, for the Pain album. Ronnie James Dio has pretty much let him take a little break from Dio to come play with us. After two hours of being there last night we were both going wow, this is awesome.
