"Rize of the Fenix" the Return of the Tenacious "D"uo of Jables and Rage Kage





Well “just like the phoenix”, after harsh criticism with the release of “The Pick of Destiny Movie”, the Tenacious duo of Jables and Rage Kage have risen from the depths of despair and near destruction with the release of their new album “Rize of the Fenix”.  The first full-length album in six years from comedy styling’ s of Jack Black and Kyle Gass entertainers extra’ordinare. 


The whole album is uproariously funny from start to finish, with a few of the songs taking a new eclectic approach of their own. Like “Drive-Thru” and “Inward Singing” on the debut album, the vocal/skit tracks “Classical Teacher” and “Flutes and Trombones”, that are simply Jack and Kyle bantering back and forth made me burst out laughing. The musical aspects of the rest of the album are talented, coupled with hilarious lyrics. “Señorita” takes on mariachi characteristics with the addition of horns and Spanish lyrics. “Throw Down” is their own country ballad on religion, while “Rock is Dead” is a fast-paced rockabilly song with quick guitar licks and pounding drums.

 Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters plays drums on the entire album for the first time, after only playing a few tracks on the first two albums.He also appears in the video teaser “The Best”.  
“Rize of the Fenix” defines what Tenacious D is all about: Hilarious hard rocking acoustic songs, with a few extra creative tracks in between to give the album and the D its distinct superiority as ‘the greatest band in the world’.
