Slipknot return with bad ass anthem “Unsainted”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at 1:37 PM (PST)

Man, if this here be “mainstream metal” I am not complaining. Like every other heavy music news outlet today we had to remind ya about new Slipknot. The fiercely good jam “Unsainted” from We Are Not Your Kind already has over a million YouTube views, which is friggin’ nuts. I don’t know about you but I got chills imagining how the live singalongs with the crowd are gonna be for this number and I already am digging it more than anything on the previous record. This reminds me of the first album combined with The Subliminal Verses but with a towering maturity and confidence rather than the initial hunger of the pack. Very solid effort from a band this far into their career who could be just serving up a plate of shit and raking in the cash anyway, but Corey Taylor and company care more than that.

It is crazy when you hear a rock song for the first time and can safely say ,”Ok, this is an easy pick for one of the biggest rock songs of the year”, but here we are. And it shouldn’t be startling since Slipknot have some of the most diehard fans around and are very consistent.

Baroness have released the driving and magnificent “Throw Me An Anchor” from Gold & Grey, probably my favorite single from the release yet in turns of energy, performance and composition. Plus, just how good have they gotten at those big melodic choruses? It’s getting unreal. This song also has an almost maddeningly dope proggy outro that somehow reminds me of Blood Brothers and Rush at the same time. Here for it!

Additionally, Baroness will be touring Europe September through November with larger than life rabble rousers Volbeat and mighty hard rockers Danko Jones. As of Friday, May 24th , Tickets will be on sale HERE .

Striker by Dana Zuk

Edmonton’s STRIKER will be hitting the road this summer for the ‘Deadly Ripping North American Tour’ with Holy Grail and Bewitcher. The 21 date tour will kick off in Phoenix, AZ on July 12th and wrap up in Los Angeles on August 4th (dates listed below). STRIKER is touring in support of their sixth studio album Play To Win released this past October via their independent label Record Breaking Records.

This band, wow…they remind me of everything that first made me fall in love with heavy metal. So good, killer musicianship, fun and not too self-conscious. Just big, killer tunes and massive harmonies paired with squealing guitars and crazy drums and riffs. Fuck yeah! Rock! Wow, thus tour is gonna be a real vocal steel cage match!

The band comments:

“Hitting the road with our brothers of shred Holy Grail this summer to bring our new album Play to Win to fans across North America! This is the summer of the Road Dogs, and we will be doing many more shows across North America and the rest of the world before it’s all said and done. There’s never been a better time to headbang in the front row!”

Champions in blending classic heavy metal, hard rock, and 80’s hair metal, Canadian shredders STRIKER’s sixth studio album Play To Win features 10 fist pounding shredtacular anthems produced by the band plus mixed and mastered by Hendrik Udd (Firewind, Powerwolf, Hammerfall, Delain). The album follows their 2017 self-titled full length that the band supported with tours across Europe and North America with Sonata Arctica, Dark Tranquility, and Warbringer along with festival appearances at 70,000 Tons of Metal, Bang Your Head Festival (Germany) and more to add to their almost 1000 shows performed in their decade-plus career. That fifth studio album also garnered them a nomination from Canada’s JUNO awards, the country’s highest music prize, along with wins at the Edmonton Music Awards and Western Canadian Awards.

Guitarist Tim Brown comments on Play To Win:

“Play to Win: if you want to win you have to play the game. Find the rules and break them. This is our 6th album and 3rd independent release. If we followed the rules and listened to the industry people we’d have gone absolutely nowhere. Play To Win is about listening to yourself, following your own path, and playing that 5th ace hidden in your sleeve. This album is designed to light a fire under your ass and get you moving, and we made sure to get the most modern, ear melting sounds possible. It’s all about where metal is going, not where it has been, and this is our soundtrack to success.”

Album CD order, stream and download available on www.Striker-Metal.com, iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.

Psychic Hit will redesign your life for a negotiable fee.

Ariana: ‘I had a secret wish to start a band with Andrea when we started dating. We were busy with other bands at the time. She gave me this amazing mix with Captain Beyond, Hightide, Aphrodite’s Child… That’s how I knew she “got me.” Our brain/lovechild, Psychic Hit, was born when we skipped Folsom Street Fair to stay home and roll on molly.

The searing classic rock and heavy metal infused sounds on Psychic Hit’s crucial and unfuckwithable demo from last year knocked me on my ass and made me more stoked for anything I’d heard with throwback influences since Amulet or maybe even the glammier Spiders. This is a top notch act that I cannot believe are so potent right out of the gate. I sort of stumbled across them online and had my mind completely blown by their songwriting skills and also an unabashed Heart influence here and there, so fucking cool. I feel like they could blast the door off any venue with the fire of their energy, for real.

Honestly I think this band could be very powerful within the scene if they keep their goals focused, make connections, get a good PR person and gig as much as they can. I don’t include write good songs because I am 100 percent confident anything they do is gonna kick ass. THAT’S how impressed I was by them. I would fucking die to somehow see them live with, like, my beloved Blood Ceremony or Earthless or really any band. Along with some amazing acts like Electric Children or the East Coast’s The Advertisers, Psychic Hit have made me feel really stoked about some of the energy percolating in underground rock in 2019 already! I cannot rave about them enough so please just fuckin’ read the interview I had with most of this amazing group (their first EVER interview) BELOW!

THERE’S THIS WHOLE CATEGORY OF PERSON OUT THERE, WHO SPENDS A LOT OF TIME PISSING AND MOANING ON THE INTERNET ABOUT THAT FUCKING BAND GRETA VAN FLEET FOR SOUNDING JUST LIKE LED ZEPPELIN (Editor’s Note: Neckbeard Van Fleet coming soon!). AND FOR THE FUCKING LIFE OF ME I CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHY. BECAUSE IF LED ZEPPELIN WAS A THING YOU LIKED, I FIGURE YOU’D BE STOKED THAT THERE WAS MORE OF IT. LIKE IF I ORDERED A PIECE OF CHEESECAKE AT A RESTAURANT, AND IT WAS GOOD AND I WENT TO ANOTHER RESTAURANT AND THEY HAD THE SAME PIECE OF CHEESECAKE, I’D BE FUCKING STOKED. AND INSTEAD YOU HAVE THESE PISS PANT WEINERS SHITTING OUT TEN PARAGRAPH ESSAYS ABOUT HOW THEY ARE MANDATED TO EXIST IN THE SAME REALITY AS A THING THAT IS INTENTIONALLY SIMILAR TO A THING THAT THEY ALREADY LIKED. THEY CAN’T JUST HAVE TWO THINGS THAT THEY LIKE. AND THAT’S HONESTLY ONE OF THE DUMBEST FUCKING THINGS I’VE HAD TO SPEND TIME MENTALLY ENTERTAINING.

I HOPE THESE CLOWNS NEVER GET INTO ART, BECAUSE IF I HAVE TO READ A PETULANT ESSAY BY SOME FART SNIFFING DICKWEED ABOUT HOW PEOPLE SHOULDN’T MAKE ART THAT IMITATES THE MASTERS I’M GONNA SCREW THE RESPONSIBLE HANDS DOWN TO A BIT OF WOOD CRUCIFIXION STYLE AND BREAK EVERY FINGER INVOLVED IN AUTHORING IT.

BUT ANYWAY. TO MAKE A POINT ABOUT THAT VERY VERY LARGE STRAW MAN, I’VE SAT DOWN TODAY WITH THE NEW DEVIL MASTER ALBUM. WHO AFTER SIGNING TO RELAPSE HAS SPENT A LOT OF TIME MAKING THEIR STUFF SOUND EXACTLY LIKE THE SPOOKY OLD HEAVY METAL TAPES MY FRIENDS DEDICATE ENTIRE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS TO DOCUMENTING.

AND THAT’S NOT A DIG. I KNOW THERE WAS A LOT GOING ON IN THAT FIRST PARAGRAPH. BUT I THINK THIS BAND DOES A LOT OF GOOD STUFF. THIS ALBUM IS COOL AND WEIRD, BUT ALSO TASTY AND CHAOTIC. IT HAS LIKE A WARM TAPEY VIBE TO THE PRODUCTION QUALITY THAT I THINK ACCIDENTALLY CAME OUT A LITTLE HI-FI FOR WHAT THEY WERE AFTER. THE GUITAR TONE AND DRUMS SOUND LIKE SOMEBODY IN THE BAND HAS A VERY LARGE MERCYFUL FATE TATTOO. AND THIS GUITAR PLAYER SEEMS LIKE THEY PROBABLY HAVE A GIGANTIC TATTOO THAT SAYS “RIFFS” BECAUSE THIS ALBUM IS JUST NOTHING BUT FUCKING RIFFS. RIFF SALAD SANDWICH, WITH A SIDE OF RIFFS. SERVED WITH A NICE TALL GLASS OF SLOPPY NASTY GROWLY VOCALS. I REALLY CAN’T STATE LOUD ENOUGH HOW EXCITED I WAS TO GET THROUGH THIS WHOLE THING WITHOUT ANYONE TRYING TO GET ME TO WASH ANY OF THESE RIFFS DOWN WITH AN IMITATION KING DIAMOND FALSETTO. A GENUINE IMPROVEMENT TO THE ORIGINAL DESIGNS.

BEYOND THE SOUND, THE BRANDING OF THE WHOLE THING IS EQUALLY REFLECTIVE OF THE SOURCE MATERIAL. THE NAME DEVIL MASTER SOUNDS INTENTIONALLY PRIMITIVE, THE LOGO IS PURPOSEFULLY BADLY XEROXED AND THEN SUPERIMPOSED ON THE VIDEOS. THE ACTUAL FOOTAGE ITSELF I THINK ACCIDENTALLY COMES OFF A LITTLE TOO HI-FI, IN A WAY THAT MAKES THE EROSION THE VIDEO EDITOR USED AFTERWARDS SEEM A LITTLE SILLY. (BUT THAT’S A VERY SMALL NIT TO PICK.) AND I REALLY LIKE THAT THE SONG TITLES TITLES FLIRT WITH SPOOKY DEVIL STUFF BUT IN A WAY THAT HARKENS BACK TO A TIME WHEN YOU COULDN’T JUST NAME YOUR ALBUM “BESTIAL NEKROGOATS SATANIC 666 WARCOCK FORCEFULLY RENDS THE BODY OF CHRIST ASUNDER” AND IMMEDIATELY GET A DEAL WITH HELLS HEADBANGERS. IT’S TASTEFUL.

THAT BEING SAID THIS KINDA THING JUST ISN’T FOR ME. I CAN TELL THAT IT’S WELL MADE, I CAN TELL THAT A LOT OF TIME AND CARE WENT INTO IT. I THINK THERE’S A COUPLE OF SMALL MIS-STEPS IN PRODUCTION AND A FEW HEAVY FOOT FALLS IN THE VIDEOS THAT COULD BE HAMMERED OUT, BUT THEY IN NO WAY OVERSHADOW EVERYTHING THIS ACCOMPLISHES. IT’S JUST NOT MY SLICE OF CHEESECAKE. AND AGAIN I NEVER TAKE OFF POINTS FOR TASTE.

THAT BEING SAID IF YOU’RE INTO THROWBACK PROTO BLACK METAL STUFF THAT DOESN’T INVOLVE ANYONE WITH A SHITTY MUSTACHE, OR HATE GROUP AFFILIATIONS. THIS IS PROBABLY FOR YOU AND YOU SHOULD ENJOY IT.

3.5 OUTTA 5. 4 OUTTA 5 IF THEY’D SHOOT THOSE VIDEOS WITH AN ACTUAL SHITTY OLD VIDEO CAMERA. GOOD STUFF.

 

Happy 49 Heavy Metal and Black Sabbath’s debut

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at 1:04 PM (PST)

SO today is the birthday of Black Sabbath’s self-titled masterpiece, remarkable for too many reasons to count. Many have spent much of their lives trying. I was going to say “a lifetime” but the average lifespan now is longer than the 49 years since Earth (see what I did there?) first heard the rumble of these titans. Actually, that’s only a semi-clever/accurate pun because while Sabbath was called Earth prior to re-naming themselves , before that they were called Polka Tulk Blues Band even earlier in ’68 in a rough form. I think we can agree it’s fucking great that they achieved iconic status in no small part to settling on their final moniker (which is more PTBB “shade” and not a dis to a certain awesome modern band called Earth we also know and love). Anyway, in 1970 Black Sabbath’s debut was born and the deal with the devil that birthed the End Times music of Heavy Metal was struck.

Human longevity is not guaranteed so much these days for us as a species, but it is pretty awe-inspiring that Sabbath have had such an impact on so many levels in culture that film, festivals and society as a whole have all been graced by the long shadow cast by “The Wizard” and friends. The fact that Ozzy is still as recognizable as any flavor of the month newfound celebrity who is zombie-cannibalized by the scrutiny of fame’s hungry eyes in our culture of inhospitable impermanence is a sheer miracle (and in no small part also thanks to Sharon, as well as his own talent). BUT I am not here today to talk about individual members of the band over the years and their place in pop culture – though Sabbath is Iommi’s more than anyone’s for sticking it out the entire time as the sole constant – as much as discuss how the first Sabbath album creeping up on 50 years old is something to marvel at.

We’ve come so far together, heavy metal. For better and for worse. You looked so cool and casual and I tried to look the same, but now I’ve got to know ya…tell me who am I to blame?

We have a choice now to take serious stock and make metal more inclusive, as potent a force as ever but even more capable of traversing barriers and resonating beyond the narrow CisHet white male bandwidth than it ever has before (which is nothing against the lads who started the band at all). I was dismayed as heck by the morons in the comments section of a recent article about the power of current female vocalists in metal. Heck, the best cover of the definitive metal title track and first doom metal song has Beth Gibbons singing instead of Ozzy (hear below) and King Woman’s Kristina Esfandiari is arguably the best singer in the melodic yet drony/sludgy side of the genre we know and love currently, IMO. People of all types, genders, races, religions, etc. love rock n roll. Let’s continue to expand that. Remember practically every concert ever Ozzy says ,”I love you all.” It is fitting the band’s final album was called 13 since the album that started it all was born on Feb. 13th, 1970. I mean, could it have been on any other day of the month?

I clean a bar every morning and was playing “The Warning” on the bar speakers today. A different guy than usual delivered the lemons and limes for the cocktails and he was an older dude. The guy’s face lit right up at the music and he said he had seen them years ago for ten bucks and proceeded to tell me all about the gig. We went from being strangers with generational divides to having something we both loved to talk about in common, and while small talk is wack I would gladly talk about Sabbath with anyone any day. That’s a life giving bridge just as much as Sabbath’s music itself has helped so many of us who have ever danced through shadows or struggled with depression.

Anyway, fucking crank this shit today, give thanks to the metal ancestors and remind them that we basically never regretted following them and will be forever metal til the end of time.

Greystone Canyon premiere “Take Us All” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 at 3:47 PM (PST)

Australia’s Greystone Canyon have premiered the music video for their song “Take Us All” off of their debut album While The Wheels Still Turn out now via Rockshots Records.

The band says of the song, “The end of mankind is here in the form of “Take Us All.” This song is super catchy with its dark melodies and roller coaster dynamics. It’s got a big vocal hook along epic dual guitar solos.”

The album was tracked at Goatsound Studios in Melbourne, Australia, and then mixed in Canada by producer Glen Robinson (Annihilator, Queensryche and Voivod).

As vocalist/guitarist Darren Cherry says of While The Wheels Still Turn, “We really wanted to make an album similar to old Ozzy Osbourne record where songs like ‘I Don’t Know’ and ‘Goodbye To Romance’ can sit comfortably. This is music from the heart and soul!”

Check out the video for “Take Us All” as well as the cover art and tracklist for While The Wheels Still Turn here.

King Diamond is releasing an epic DVD set featuring Graspop and Fillmore full sets of Abigail. This release looks seriously sick. As a die hard King fan I am beyond elated today and singing in falsetto and pissing off my dramatic cat.

“Songs For The Dead Live gives those who missed out on seeing these shows in the flesh a chance to vividly experience them, offering so much deeper an experience than your run of the mill live DVD.”

Happy 70, Ozzy.

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, December 3, 2018 at 6:51 PM (PST)

Ozzy turned 70 today, proving you really can achieve anything with the help of heavy metal and perhaps some unholy magic pacts? In all seriousness, congrats to Ozzy and thanks for all the years loving and living rock n roll. Everyone has a favorite album or song or show or memory and I hope it is not insulting to say that with all his antics over the years there are many people who were expected to outlive Ozzy but he proved them wrong and has had a wild, full and incredible life.

Here’s one of my favorites from The Prince Of Darkness. “Road To Nowhere”? Nah, man. More like road to eternal metal glory.

November Reign: Squalus, Monolord news items

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 12:50 PM (PST)

Hey kids, rock n roll and I’d even dare to say rock on. I can’t even begin to scratch the surface of how effed up politics is at the moment and am a little wiped out so let’s just take it slow today and stick to some metal news. Actually, eff that. I will mention that Trans Military, the first ever feature film to receive funding from GLAAD, can be previewed HERE.

Ok, now to a band singing about killer sharks, etc. and more chunky news.

Northern California’s turbulent, JAWS worshipping, genre defying, progressive quartet Squalus, reveal “Fourth of July” from their forthcoming split with Chico, CA progressive sludge band, Shadow Limb, titled, “Mass and Power”. Listen to “Fourth of July” today at Decibel Magazine.

“For those who don’t know, our 2017 debut record, The Great Fish… is a retelling of Jaws,” explains guitarist/vocalist Aaron John Gregory. “To fit it all on a single LP, we had to cut a song. The track ‘Fourth of July’—which recreates the early conversation between Mayor Vaughn and Sheriff Brody about shutting down the beaches—was originally supposed to be the second track on the album, sitting in between songs that depict attacks on the first two victims. The completionist in me loved having a song for that scene with all that great dialogue, but for a number of reasons it was the most likely candidate to be severed when trimming down the album playtime. Knowing that we wanted to do something with it down the line gave us the perfect excuse to release this split with Shadow Limb, and record a couple new songs while we were at it.”

“Mass and Power” will be released on December 14th via Translation Loss Records on LP/digital.

The fuckin’ riff crushers in Monolord have signed to Relapse! The Swedish trio pretty much win over anyone who sees them live and with each album (Empress Rising, Vænir and Rust) have managed to somehow raise the bar even further. It’s not fair to other bands with worse talent and work ethic!

MONOLORD’s yet-to-be-titled fourth studio album is expected to be released in late 2019. Stay tuned for more information.

MONOLORD comment on the signing:

“Stoked about this! Working with people who are driven by the passion for music above anything else has always been key for us. The fine music lovers at Relapse are just the kind of passionate people we want to spread the decibel gospel with and we feel confident that this is gonna be a very sweet ride together.”

MONOLORD are currently on tour throughout Europe with Kadavar. A full list of remaining tour dates is available below.
