System Of A Down deliver much needed killer KROQ set

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, December 15, 2014 at 6:02 AM (PST)

System! Like RATM, it’s been aggravating that System Of A Down have been less active during such times of unrest (not that commenting on the state of world affairs rests on the shoulders of these bands interminably). But if you have that many fans and the ear of people, please keep using it. Shavo worked w/ my homies Bad Brains and Serj’s solo albums keep getting better (“Cornucopia” has some of his best lyrics in any song, so dope), but there’s nothing like the full System barrage. It’s profoundly great still that this was the number one band the week of 9/11 (how #metalgate of me).

Anyway, the boys hit the stage at KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas over the weekend and there is great pro video you can catch. The curses were edited out by some asshole, but otherwise it is pure SOAD hypomania. Check out the full set BELOW (and let’s hope they come to their senses and make another fuckin’ album already). From a very relevant “Deer Dance” (best of the set, IMO) to a thrashing version of “B.Y.O.B.” to classic “Toxicity”, this stuff is still relevant and they nailed it at this show.

NWoAHM Memories: Shadows Fall, God Forbid, Chimaira (Photos)

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 at 8:24 AM (PST)

Listening to NPR discuss Massachusetts racial history today and the Jason Sokol book All Eyes Are Upon Us: Race and Politics From Boston To Brooklyn as I pull up the photos photographer Matt Slater graciously assembled for this live piece. Looking at Chimaira, Shadows Fall and God Forbid in metal splendor, I can’t help but feel like the better examples of geeks, thrashers and artists are ahead of the pack at times when it comes to acceptance. Shadows Fall’s greatest album, The Art Of Balance, has a title alone that is  good metaphor for the way to walk and interface with people in life. Hey, we all lose our heads sometimes ( remember when powerhouse drummer Jason Bittner yelled at Halestorm for the Grammy Win, hahah?)… But most of the time I think it is awesome we can have an underground that supports a diverse spectrum of people. When I’m at a show inclusiveness is second nature, though of course there are always some knuckleheads who just came to fuck shit up.

That said, I think overall the mark of metal core and NWoAHM is way more positive than negative. We’re going into a new Congressional period with people who don’t want to listen and want to obstruct. Scott Walker and other hobgoblins don’t care about workers, in my mind. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul or Rubio are as uneven, creepy and selective in memory as I am a fan of Kyuss. Bridgegate was appalling, NJ.  But in the underground we have a voice to help people and communities shook by Fegusson’s exposed wound! To cheer on when New York State chooses to improve definition of consent on college campuses! To just get out there and fucking rock and have a good time with OTHER PEOPLE! Look, it aint that all cops are bad or all black people are criminals. It’s about empathy for the suffering of other human beings.

Anyway, looking at these photos Slater gave us, I can’t help but feel pride and energized by what these bands gave us all. From energy to words to vision. Fuck off, haters. You aren’t constructive.

Corrosion Of Conformity vets to perform “Blind” at K.Ludwig benefit

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 9:43 AM (PST)
1135

Vocalist Karl Agell, who sang on CORROSION OF CONFORMITY‘s 1991 seminal Blind full-length and founding drummer Reed Mullin will perform the LP in its entirety on Sunday, November 9th at the Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, North Carolina. The concert is a benefit show for Katherine Ludwig, former editor of long-running heavy metal magazine, Metal Maniacs, who is currently battling non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Footage of the band rehearsing for the upcoming performance (plus jamming some Slayer and Motorhead!!!) can be viewed at THIS LOCATION.

Comments Mullin, “I only heard about Katherine’s medical problems a month ago, and the minute after, I was on the phone with Karl Agell to see if he’d be into doing a benefit for her. I’m not sure folks today know just how instrumental she was in introducing and exposing your typical ‘metal maniac’ of the early ’90s to so many bad ass bands. A lot of which, like COC, had never been given an audience like that before. We had been in fanzines with circulations of maybe a couple hundred, but Metal Maniacs was thousands and thousands! A great advocate for little known underground metal, as well as hardcore/punk bands, she promoted the Blind album to the point where by the end of the year it was on virtually everyone’s top ten metal albums of 1991. I can’t overstate how important she was to COC’s success. Without her, Blind wouldn’t have sold what it did. And after that, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say there probably would never have been a Deliverance album. Katherine Ludwig is wonderful person and I hope we can give back a little for all the goodness she gave us.”

 

A Facebook page has been launched by Alicia Morgan, who worked as Ludwig’s assistant and was editor for several issues of the magazine. Writes Morgan: “[Katherine would] cover bands before they were on the mainstream radar: Sepultura, Voivod, Prong, Kreator, White Zombie, Obituary, Cathedral, Cro-Mags, Neurosis, Eyehategod, Carcass, Corrosion Of Conformity etc. She gave a voice to underground punk/doom and crust bands like  Amebix, Deviated Instinct and Winter. She gave a platform to unsigned bands and ‘zines. In her editorials, she wrote about issues that meant something to her. Racism. Sexism. Human rights. Animal rights. Vegetarianism. Homophobia. Even if she got flack about it, she’d soldier on, and call people out… I’m asking you to give Katherine, this leader, this beautiful and strong warrior, donations that will relieve some of the burden to ease costs that go along with all of the guts and glory that go along with chemo, and cancer, and everything and everything that will help as she helped all of you.”

There are few bands as widely respected and as influential as the Ramones. And now, the group’s long-time drummer is gearing up to unveil his long-awaited autobiography, ‘Punk Rock Blitzkrieg: My Life As A Ramone,’ which will be released on January 13, 2015, via Touchstone Books. And what better way to celebrate the book’s arrival than with gloriously mega-decibel renditions of Ramones classics, which is exactly what Marky will be offering up on Saturday, January 17th at the Gramercy Theatre in NYC.

Joining Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg that night will be special guest Andrew W.K. on vocals.

“These songs are too good not to be played,” says Marky. “I am really looking forward to playing live once more in my hometown of NYC, and celebrating the arrival of the book.”

‘Punk Rock Blitzkrieg’ will serve as a social history of the New York punk scene from an eyewitness. Yes, it has plenty of tales from the dirty streets, drugs, and rock and roll, but it also takes readers on a musical journey of a legendary band. And a few days after it’s release, fans will get the opportunity to rock out – and possibly meet – one of the greatest rock n’ roll drummers of all time.

Ivar Bjørnson picks Skeletonwitch for Roadburn 2015

Today, the prestigious Roadburn Festival announced that SKELETONWITCH has been invited to perform at the 2015 edition of the event, which takes place in Tilburg, Holland next April. Pre-sale tickets go on sale Oct. 16.

 “Simply put: if you want blackened thrash (or whatever you want to call it – everybody has their own definition of what these Ohio rednecks are supposed to be defined as) of the absolutely highest order, these are your guys,” proclaimed Enslaved guitarist Ivar Bjørnson, who alongside Einar “Kvitrafn” Selvik (Wardruna) has curated the line-up for Roadburn 2015.

Having hand-picked SKELETONWITCH to play, Bjørnson — who toured alongside the group earlier this year — added, “Okay, I’ve gotta admit that once again sharing a backstage area with these wonderful specimens of the human variety is a motivation in itself – but it is of course first and foremost the music that brought about the invite. This is the perfect band to tear down the walls at Roadburn 2015 and seriously shake things up/slap us silly. If ‘Witch’s high-octane metal doesn’t make you headbang like there’s no tomorrow, you’re probably dead.”

Falconer announce final live shows

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, September 15, 2014 at 8:08 PM (PST)

falconer

ProgPower USA has announced the line up for ProgPower XVI, which will include Falconer‘s final live performance. A video featuring music from the bands announced so far can be found on facebook.com/ProgPowerUSA. The festival is scheduled to take place in Atlanta, GA September 11-12 next year. Tickets will go on sale on October 4 through Ticketmaster.

Falconer has released the following statement online:

“As the news has been dropped that we won’t continue as a live act we take the opportunity to explain, not that it really differs much from the state the band usually is in. The last show will take place at ProgPower USA in 2015.

 “As I (Stefan Weinerhall) started Falconer in 1999 it was meant to be a studio project, I have always looked upon myself as a writer more than an artist, the creative work has been the reason and driving force. We started doing some shows after a while but never really going all in although the shows themselves was really rewarding, fun and filled with fond memories. It is due to conscious decisions that we have built the band up around our obligations, work schedules and family lives so there is no bitterness to this decision although the decisions were harder to make in the early years when everything started rolling. If we’re not a proper live act we’re better of as the studio project we were meant to be.

 “The inconsistency of doing very few shows with huge gaps between them has meant that we’ve had to start up the rusty machinery from scratch each time. So now as we all are becoming grumpy old men, we realise that the output don’t match the input although the experiences from the past gigs have been great!

“We owe it to our fans and ourselves to do some more appearances before becoming even more reclusive than we already are, haha! So for 2015 we have looked into our windows of opportunity and seen which festivals we CAN do. Those festivals are now contacted and know of the exclusivity in the offer. So with this I hope that those of you who really want to catch us a last time will succeed, even though we haven’t directly booked a world tour!

 

“Cheers from the metal minstrels from the north!”

Stefan, Mathias, Karsten, Jimmy and Magnus

 

Falconer’s most recent album, Black Moon Rising was released in June of this year and can be previewed and purchased at metalblade.com/falconer.

Much luck to the band in their future endeavors and thanks for their efforts to date bringing great metal to true fans.

Kingston, NY’s hardcore kings Painmask are underground vets who real heads know have been in this dogfight for decades. Now, the band have an upcoming gig with Cro-Mags and Sub Zero in Poughkeepsie, NY

Says intelligent vocalist Jay Avery:

“Were really excited for this upcoming show and the chance to meet and hang with great local acts and support two legendary New York Hardcore bands. Both Subzero and Cro-mags have pioneered the style and scene that we have always been proud to be part of. We’re taking this  opportunity to introduce new members of the band and material that is soon to be released. We’re confident that the new additions to the Painmask roster will once again deliver! Were a solid group of lifelong metalheads with endless ambition. Our strict mission is to deliver the most intense, thought provoking, heavy music set one could ask for.  And If you don’t believe me come see for yourself. We offer a money back guarantee!”

I asked Avery how about the material they recently tracked with Joey Z. of Life Of Agony fame at various studios?

“Were working on final mixes with the new tracks and couldn’t be more happier with the outcome. We were a little concerned at first with the recent member changes, but what has emerged is incredible! Life’s circumstances have parlayed into something bigger and stronger then we could have imagined. JoeyZ really is a cut above to work with. His advice and professionalism is second to none! But with the recent resurgence of Life of Agony and their European shows this month, we’ve had to take a short pause from mastering. We should have these songs available by mid September. But if you’re one of the lucky ticket holders and we see you at the sold out LOA reunion on Sept 13 in Sayreville NJ. I might even have a copy for you.”
