Goooooooood morning Vietnam! It’s 0600 hours. What does the “O” stand for? O my God, it’s early! Speaking of early, let’s hear it for that Marty Lee Drywitz. Silky smooth sounds, making me sound like Peggy Lee…

The following interview was conducted with guitarist/singer Son of Fogman from Montreal heavy psych band USA Out of Vietnam. Click here for this great debate with national moods and, in essence, music theory itself.

Ok, I promise to post, like, seventeen Black Breath and Entombed articles after this dance tangent, but I am betting most of you wont mind.Anyway, I heard this mesmerizing track on acclaimed Swedish label Labrador for a group called Eternal Death today. It is not what you’d expect from a group with basically a made for death metal name.

The vocals really are like Witch House meets Dolly Parton or even Cocteau Twins and the shit is spooky, moving and pensive. I found myself wanting to go run outside in the rain with my shirt off and scream at the sky. You may just want to turn it off and get back to beating off to Immortal, I don’t know. But seriously, how could I not run that photo? That is a great photo.

But while this is a metal site, we have to give props to anything dealing with grappling the inevitable lights going out with this much potency.

The story of Eternal Death began in the fall of 2013 with the video ”Eternal Death”. With its 4 minutes of total silence and darkness it created an equal amount of fascination and confusion. The video was followed up by the single “Head” in the early spring of 2014. 

Eternal Death are working on their debut album due in the fall of 2014 – an album about evanescence, death and sparkling pop melodies.

Melvins announce “Everybody Loves Sausages” covers album

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Sunday, February 10, 2013 at 5:45 PM (PST)

eshf_sausagescoverhires_1I realized in horror that while we have way too many posts about seriously subpar metalcore bands, no one had any posts about the best band ever, The Melvins. Let me ammend that error and simultaneously increase the coolness of our humble metal domain tenfold by announcing the upcoming release of an unorthodox covers album from the “Godfathers of Grunge” entitled… Everybody Loves Sausages.

Melvins and cover songs usually equals genius. Their versions of “God Of Thunder” by Kiss, “Youth Of America” by The Wipers and of course, their infamous version of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” with none other than Leif Garrett on vocals are the stuff of legend.

Now, fans can wet their whistles on this collection (out April 30th on Ipecac), which is probably worth it for the Melvins/Scott Kelly team up on Venom’s “Warhead” alone. Personally, I am really excited and scared to hear them cover “Best Friend” by Queen with the dude from Tweak Bird. I need some strong LSD. Other guests include Jello Biafra, Mark Arm and many more.

King Buzzo says: “This record will give people a peak into the kind of things that influence us musically. We REALLY like all of these songs along with the bands who actually wrote this stuff because first and foremost we are HUGE music fans.”

Blood and Dirty Noises: Interview- A Shattered Hope

Posted by XxCrashQueenxX on Monday, August 27, 2012 at 7:09 AM (PST)

Quick, honest, and straight to the point. I recently spent a few minutes with the men of A Shattered Hope, in a parking lot…with a cop car, firetruck, ambulance, and CSI van as the backdrop to our location– all a part of the band’s “Middle Fingers, Blood, and Beer”  motto for their live shows. Good times all around.

In this very brief interview, the band and I discussed the possibility of new material, how the band might be changing their style up in the future, and how their recent busy schedule has turned out for them.

Check out the band’s answers here.
