There is really nothing quite like GOJIRA‘s From Mars To Sirius classic in all of metal, save a heavy Morbid Angel influence in some of the vast and massive riffs.

KSE release new video for heavy groove track “Strength Of The Mind”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, December 10, 2015 at 8:26 PM (PST)

Killswitch-Engage

Killswitch Engage are back with a beefier sounding new track, a strong new single called “Strength Of The Mind”. The song stands out well from recent material while still having a place in the core sound. There is a very heavy bridge that old school fans wike like, a pretty heavy vocal performance and some killer guitar runs. All in all, this song grooves hard. Though I’m not as in love with it as some of the standout stuff on Disarm The Descent, I think it will grow and has that certain throwback, early 00’s vibe.

Megadeth release “The Threat Is Real” audio.

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, November 25, 2015 at 9:16 PM (PST)

megadeththreatisrealsingle

 

Megadeth‘s new track is probably the best thing from the band since the System Has Failed stuff, the last time I was really into more than one or two songs off a record (though Endgame was pretty decent). This new tune “The Threat Is Real” is awesome, though. Kudos to Mustaine for listening to the fans desire for some of the thrashier, more virtuoso side of Megadeth we have been missing. Listen HERE.

That said, I have never been able to listen to the band the same way since the Mustaine comments about Obama being behind the movie theater Dark Knight Rises Shootings. Look, we know he calls shots on the drone kill list but believing in the false flag movie theater shooting stuff as a plot to take away gun rights was really too much. We don’t need to fabricate shootings because they happen way too often. And I’m not even anti-gun. I think it is a tool like anything else but way too many people are not mature or sane enough to handle the responsibility. So yeah, Mustaine saying that made me go running for my Testament CDs instead. I’m not sure I’m ever gonna be won back fully from that, despite this track having some great performances on it. That said, it’s a real shredder and I loved it.

Slipknot premiere newest deranged video with “XIX”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, October 5, 2015 at 4:04 PM (PST)

3290

Clown from Slipknot has directed the band’s latest clip “XIX” from .5: The Gray Chapter. The track is very dark and has a certain gothic feel, one of their more interesting and nuanced numbers. Even if the clip wasn’t sure to be a singalong live anthem ready made as a great segue between heavier numbers ala Korn’s 4 U it features naked ladies in veils with nooses dangling between their breasts and some stark imagery of floating coffins, twisted trees and flowers. A cool clip and song.

Check it out BELOW.

Song Of The Week: Queensrÿche’s “Guardian”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, September 11, 2015 at 1:21 PM (PST)

Todd LaTorre has reignited the disillusioned ‘Ryche fan base tired of the weird antics of Geoff Tate. I am a lifelong admirer of Tate’s skill and vision but it’s pretty sad these days he is in a band called Operation: Mindcrime. I knew we were headed for some kind of trouble when they were doing the Cabaret stuff a few years ago. I was a fan of some of the disputed records like Tribe (which I LOVE) and even liked parts of Dedicated To Chaos, but the new stuff just has that extra level of epic feeling you want, even without some classic members.

So, Tate aside, let’s take the high road here and focus on the awesomeness of said new stuff. “Guardian” has some vintage riffing, shrieking vocals the way you want them in this band and even some surprises (a very heavy ending riff). Check out our song of the week BELOW.

Acey Slade (Dark Party, Joan Jett, Murderdolls) on new chapter

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Sunday, September 6, 2015 at 3:40 PM (PST)

Brooklyn’s Acey Slade is a lovable rogue, a people person who somehow seems to know everyone yet has a mystique about him. From Trashlight Vision to fan faves Murderdolls to Dope to recently playing with Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Acey is a real lifer who deserves everything good that comes his way.

Now Acey is getting back to putting out some of his own music and has a Pledge music campaign up and running HERE.

 

“Around the new year of 2015 it occurred to me that it had been a very long time since I had put out any of my own original music. It also occurred to me that if this was going to happen anytime soon I had better start working on it now, as I had a very busy year of tour ahead of me with Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. So I set out to record an EP on my lap top with no real expectations.

Then I met my studio engineer Tom Camuso who had Aerosmith and Lenny Kravitz original Neve recoding console, and he wanted to work on this project. Then Frank Ferrer of Guns and Roses and also Kriz from Dead Star Assembly got involved on drums. Then Christian Martucci of Stone Sour and Dee Dee Ramones band got involved. THEN Kato Khandwala who mixed the last Pretty Reckless and Blondie albums came on board.

You see PEOPLE are what brings music to life.”

Killswitch perform new song live in Toronto

Your favorite mostly PMA metalcore band and mine Killswitch Engage are always miles ahead of most of the pack, and new song “Strength In Mind” has one hell of a grooving riff. The band performed the new tune at a Toronto stop, some of the only new material since Disarm The Descent we’ve heard with the exception of the rad Game Of Thrones track “Loyalty”.

Jesse Leach remains one of the most chill and inspiring frontmen and it is cool as hell to also hear him admit in this video that the Red Sox blow.

Watch it BELOW.

Korn_Suicide_Silence_tour

Even the cynical and nu metal hating among you have to admit this tour is going to bring the serious mosh. Not only have Korn been really regaining that special weirdness they had since Brian Welch returned to the ranks, but they are bringing Suicide Silence and one of my favorite newer bands Islander in tow. Seriously, Are you rrrrreeeeaaaddddyyyyyyyyyyyy?

Maybe I’ll see some of you at Irving. Fuckin’ not ashamed of being stoked!

I was never into The Devil Wears Prada early in their career. I couldn’t get past the hokey or long song titles that weren’t as interesting as Shai Hulud or Gigan song names. I have to say that since becoming a fan of easy-core new school classic Homesick by A Day To Remember which featured some Prada guest vox and then meeting them a few years back at Mayhem Fest and finding out they were chill dudes, I changed my tune. It helped though that ever since Prada signed with Roadrunner they’ve become more mature and just a better band in almost every way. Actually, Dead Throne was the bomb too. Plus, they really do slam live. I’ve been a fan of pretty much every song they’ve released since and the new one is no exception. Bump this! Awesome tune for early summer’s arrival.

Coal Chamber and Ministry team up on aggro new single

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, April 13, 2015 at 7:41 PM (PST)

coal-chamber-posted-the-first-we

Coal Chamber are the ghouls of Nu Metal Groove and Ministry are the most undead of Industrial Metal hybrid Bands (with all due respect to departed guitarist Mike Scaccia). The pairing of the Dez and Al friendship on wax is a song called “Suffer In Silence” that has the rolling wall of intimidating groove that made Nu Metal so popular but here any cheezy elements are more of a camp, as the witty style of Coal Chamber paints a story of midnight walks and Al Jourgensen brings his persona and karma to bear down on the track like the old pro he is. Hell or high water, this was gonna rock in some way.

I like Coal Chamber best when they have this sort of dry drum production with just good crunchy guitar and some effected vocals, I believe. Most people prefer their second album Chamber Music, my least favorite (except for the Peter Gabriel cover with Ozzy).

Check out the collaboration with Al Jourgesen  BELOW.

Deep Cuts: Megadeth

Posted by Andrew Johann Datoush on Monday, March 30, 2015 at 9:16 AM (PST)

“One of the columns I was excited to have you involved in is our Metal Riot ‘Deep Cuts’ series. I’d like you to do MEGADETH!”

That was the line that stood out to me when I got my welcome to the Metal Riot world. I was on my lunch break from my day job inside a Stewart’s station when I got this message and in my joy, let out a very loud “OH FUCK YEAH!!”, much to the displeasure of a woman and young child sitting at the table next to me. I can only assume her displeasure was because I get to listen to a lot of MEGADETH and call it ‘work’, and she can’t. Really, there is no other logical explaination I can come up with. MEGADETH has been one of my top favorites for as long as I can remember, so I really was excited to be asked to write about them. I got into the band while collecting movie soundtracks as a kid. “Go To Hell” from the Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey soundtrack was my introduction to the band, but “Angry Again” from Last Action Hero is what really snagged my attention.

So now, I’ve got the impossible task of narrowing down the band’s 30 year career of killer tunes down to only 3 cuts. We all know the mega-classics. “Trust”, “Holy Wars…The Punishment Due”, “Symphony Of Destruction”, “Peace Sells”, etc. have all been staples in the band’s setlist for years. I wanted to pick out some tunes that don’t seem to get as much love. Obviously, I had to leave out a ton, so gems like “44 Minutes”, “The Disintegrators” and “Die Dead Enough” will have to wait until we do another write up.

For what 3 songs made the “Cuts” snarl and sneer HERE.
