Sweden’s Sister have launched a throat thirsty new scuzz rock video for  “Slay Yourself” , from their kick ass latest Disguised Vultures. The band are pretty much one of the realest rock n roll acts out right now, a group who actually have a sense of anarchy on stage like rock is supposed to. I would take this any day over half the shitty hipster bands out or lame saturated candy vocals in metalcore hooks. This was filmed at venues in Sweden and Finland and captures the sweaty and raw energy unleashed on the club stages on that tour.

This video plus news that Dave Lombardo has joined fucking Amen (!!!!) has me believing again.

Sister has confirmed an appearance at the ‘Peace and Love’ festival in Borlänge, Sweden on July 5th. More tour dates for Europe are in the works and will be announced soon. Visit to stay up to date with the band.

Album Review: Smash Fashion – Big Cat Love

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at 5:30 AM (PST)


If you are like me and really love music, chances are you probably listen to a wide variety. While metal is my passion, I can easily go from Lana del Rey to Earl Greyhound to Goatsnake. One reason I loved Type O Negative so much is they could be super doomy and Sabbathy one minute to comedy goth rock the next to a military marching band from hell or a Beatles loving psyhedelic band. Anyway, I’ve also got a big love of early Glam rock and also Sunset Strip music…anything from T-Rex to Slade to…(I’ll say it) Poison. So I was quite stoked to get an actually great new glam release from a band called Smash Fashion the other day.

Big Cat Love is a very fun and solid collection of pop-laced rock n roll, the kind of sing-a-long album they don’t make enough these days. It isn’t saccharine in production, the tunes shine and the playing is stellar. “Marionette” rocks like classic Kiss in a good way, the band have the look and the songs straddle a great line between early New Romantics and throwback 60’s and 70’s stuff with a bit of the better side of the 80’s hair scene (but really tastefully tempered). “You Love to Suffer” is an awesome, trippy kind of proto-ballad about a miserable gothy girl who loves moping and it is very memorable. “You’re so obsessed with death and gloom, Riding around on your witches broom, A little bit of sunshine would do you good,” coos vocalist and guitarist Roger Deering.

The Los Angeles band are worth your attention, full of a kind of sunny swagger that hits the nail on the head. Not as seedy as The Prophets of Addiction, another awesome act I recently discovered, these guys instead opt for a more pursed lips and cocky strut on songs like title track “Big Cat Love” and the funny “Strike My Fancy (knickers down). I definitely hear some “Ballroom Blitz” in a lot of this stuff, though the band keeps things about mid tempo for most of the record. It also helps that they can really play their instruments, have great catchy back up vocals and aren’t a bunch of sticks in the mud. “Just a kiss at the starting line” is even a rock ballad about getting some love from your baby when you are feeling like shit about your lousy job, a rather down to earth sentiment from a band that could certainly just play the part of pretending to look down on fans from a hypothetical arena in a bygone era. But yeah, these guys rule and deserve props.

This is a great album for a party summer and I recommend you check it out at

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Monday, April 14, 2014 at 9:29 PM (PST)


Hard rock schmoozers Pop Evil have debuted a new video via Loudwire for “Torn To Pieces”. Watch the new video HERE.

“Torn to Pieces,” their third single going top 5, was directed by long time director Johan Carlén.

The song deals with the loss of loved ones, something everyone is bound to go through. Digging up the past can be very difficult. Losing someone close to you has a healing process, and I choose to do it through this video.” – Vocalist Leigh Kakaty

POP EVIL, joined by legendary artist DMC of RUN-DMC, will open each ACC NETWORK telecast of the 2014 ACC men’s basketball tournament. POP EVIL‘s #1 single, “Trenches,” has been remixed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and will be featured in the opening video montage to lead into each game.

“POP EVIL and DMC have collaborated on an impressive song that really embodies the energy and passion of the ACC Tournament,” said RAYCOM SPORTS producer DAVE BARRINGER, who created the opening sequence. “‘Trenches’ focuses on the power to control your future, which translates well into the teams fighting their way to the prestigious ACC Championship. By customizing the lyrics, POP EVIL and DMC have captured the growth and change of the ACC Tournament and the teams, from 1954 to the present.”

Click HERE to watch the collaboration. It sounds pretty 00’s but is still fired up and good for this kind of B-ball thing. And ya gotta love DMC.

Pop Evil shoot new video for “Torn to Pieces”

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at 5:28 PM (PST)


Radio powerhouse POP EVIL have shot a new music video for their current single, “Torn to Pieces,” that’s quickly climbing up the charts. Directed by Swedish veteran director Johan Carlén, this will be the band’s fourth video installment from their highly successful LP, “Onyx.” Frontman Leigh Kakaty adds this heartfelt comment:

“There’s nothing more haunting & torturous to the human soul than the feeling of losing someone close to you without saying goodbye.”

The band launched a social media initiative using Instagram surrounding “Torn to Pieces” late last week. Since the song deals with the loss of Kakaty’s father, fans are encouraged to upload their own photos depicting what the song means to them. Fans have been tagging Instagram photos with #petorntopieces since its launch and the collection is ever growing. The band is overwhelmed with its success and encourage fans to visit their official site and keep it up!

POP EVIL is on their way to a yet another chart topping single with “Torn To Pieces.” The song has gone from being #1 most added to #13 on the Active Rock chart in just 5 weeks. The band has already seen a career shattering two number one singles off of their latest LP, most recently with “Deal With The Devil” and first with “Trenches.”

As can be expected from these veteran road dogs, POP EVIL just wrapped up an intense run with STONE SOUR and have headed over to Europe for their first full run off of U.S. soil with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH. We can expect to hear about more touring in the states very soon.

Die So Fluid
Oh good, I thought it was just me that thought it weird when these bands get described as ‘melodic’ but it’s the same fucking, unmemorable, melody that they’re all singing.Lack of balls and the wrong motivation. They don’t want to be real musicians just pop stars. And they’re encouraged by labels who want pop stars and not musicians too. When you start out you’re happy to have written a song, and then as you progress your standards are raised and you find you’re throwing out songs that don’t come up to par. It should always be a challenging and stimulating process.-Grog (Vox).

It is with pleasure Metal Riot discusses “The Opposites Of Light” pending release with Grog from Die So Fluid. To read the interview click HERE.

Into the Sun Vibrant - smallChristian metal hard rock veterans Stryper are back in force with a lyric video for “Revelation”. The song comes from their forthcoming 2013 release No More Hell To Pay. It is hot on the heels of The Second Coming, a disc of re-recorded classics that actually improves on a lot of the originals! Stryper are actually getting better with age and Michael Sweet’s voice sound great on this. The mix suits the band just right and has hooks but a bit more punch, a good modern feel but true to Stryper’s sound.

No More Hell To Pay will be released on November 5 in North America via Frontiers Records. The effort will be made available in two formats — standard CD and deluxe digipak featuring exclusive video content. Produced by frontman/guitarist Michael Sweet himself, the set features some of Stryper’s “strongest and heaviest material ever.”

Amen, bruthas!

Nikki Sixx says next Mötley Crüe album will be their “best one yet”

Posted by Metal Dude on Saturday, December 1, 2012 at 5:00 PM (PST)

Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx has vowed to make another album for the band, which he describes as “the best Crüe album yet”. When asked on Facebook if he thought the band would ever record albums again, Sixx responded:

“Yes… ‘Sex’ was the first song and we’ve all been writing. We will get in the studio to finish what we started and deliver the best Crüe album yet.”

Aside from the new song “Sex”, which came out this summer, Mötley Crüe haven’t released any type of new material since 2008’s Saints of Los Angeles.

Nikki Sixx says there will be new material from Mötley Crüe

Posted by Metal Dude on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 5:49 PM (PST)

Nearly a month ago, Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx stated that there were no plans to record a new full-length, but has apparently retracted this statement as he recently told Ultimate Classic Rock that new material will happen. He states:

“We’re going to make music. First thing you do is you write it, you record it, then you have it, then what do you do with it? Do we release EPs? Do we release albums? Do we release two songs a week? Or, you know, for 16 weeks? We don’t know yet and that’s kind of exciting. It’s kind of interesting to be in that place and not be going, ‘Well, here’s the release date, the full 10 songs have to be mixed and mastered by this date. We don’t necessarily know exactly what we’re going to do. I mean, we like what we’re doing right now. It feels good. It feels organic. We like that we have this body of work that we can pick from to play live. The band’s probably getting along better than, maybe, ever.”

Aside from the new song “Sex”, which came out this summer, Mötley Crüe haven’t released any type of new material since 2008’s Saints of Los Angeles.

Nikki Sixx says there are no plans for new Mötley Crüe album

Posted by Metal Dude on Tuesday, August 28, 2012 at 7:00 PM (PST)

Even though Mötley Crüe just recently released a new song called “Sex”, bassist Nikki Sixx told today that they currently have no plans to record a new full-length featuring new material. He explains:

“It takes time to put together music. Right now we’re just writing music. There’s tons of material always there — there’s riffs for days, ideas, choruses here, verses there. For us, it’s how many songs have we written (and) how many do we love and what do we want to do with them? It’s about finding the time to go home, be off the road, get everybody in a room and start riffing and see where it does.”

Mötley Crüe’s latest album, Saints of Los Angeles, was released in 2008. It was the band’s first studio album in eight years, and the first to feature the band’s classic line-up in 11 years, since 1997’s Generation Swine.

New Sister music video premire for “Bullshit & Backstabbing”

Posted by metalrocker on Thursday, November 17, 2011 at 4:01 PM (PST)

Sister HatedSleaze/punk influenced metal outfit Sister have released their second music video, “Bullshit & Backstabbing”  off their latest album “Hated”. Check it out here.

Here’s what the band had to say about their new video:

“The video for “Bullshit & Backstabbing” is the first video we’ve done with a crew behind the cameras. The song is a favourite of the album HATED for all of us in the band and it felt right to make a video of it. We found a greasy spot to shoot it at and got to work. Like always we wanted to keep it on a basic level and just do a video with what Sister is all about Just deliver the punk rock we’ve always done. This is what we do and the video crew Bröderna Blom and Tinnerholm got it down and made it sick. Check it! Ps No animals were seriously harmed during the shooting of this video!”

Sister’s latest album, “Hated”, was released June 7th 2011 via Metal Blade Records.
