Jonathan Davis releases “What It Is” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 8:00 PM (PST)

Bakersfield, California metaller Jonathan Davis has released the first single from his debut solo album. The album will be released by Sumerian Records.

The first single “What It Is,” was released on January 25.

Of the record Davis had this to say, “This time, I’m pulling something out of the audience,” he grins. “I’ve bared my soul for so fucking long I thought it’d be really cool to pull listeners in a different direction for once. I’m taking them out of that dark place and into somewhere that’s spiritual, positive, and makes them really think! It’s just art. I’ve changed lives with Korn, but I wanted to open minds with this shit.”

He went on to say, about why he hasn’t released a solo album before now: “This is how fate would have it,” he explains. “Deals would come and go. Then, we’d do a Korn record and a tour. There was no time for me to do this. All of the stars finally aligned. Velvet Hammer believed in it. Sumerian Records came to the fold. It’s like an extension of where I was at on the Queen of the Damned shit mixed with rock, early goth, new romantic, and everything I love. It’s going to take you on a journey.”

The Devil Wears Prada release “Transit Blues” tour video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, January 19, 2018 at 3:52 PM (PST)

TDWP fans can now enjoy a sweaty, energetic live video for the title track from the band’s recent Transit Blues effort. The album is one of the group’s most mature, well written and intense efforts. IMO, these dudes have grown a million-fold and found their own identity at this point.

Aerosmith’s debut eponymous album turns 45 this month!

Columbia/SME

Boston hard rocker’s Aerosmith have been in the game for a while now – releasing fifteen studio albums, touring the world, being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001 – Aerosmith has sold a certified 84.7 million units, making them one of the top 30 best selling music artists of all time!

That all started 45 years ago with the release of their debut album Aerosmith. Released on Columbia Records in January 1973, Aerosmith had been recorded in a month at Intermedia Studios in Boston and produced by Adrian Barber.

When the album was released in 1973, it and it’s biggest single, “Dream On,” didn’t catch on at first. It wouldn’t be until the album was re-released in 1976 that “Dream On” would become a top ten single and the album itself would reach 21 on the Billboard 200 that same year. The album has gone on to be certified 2x Platinum in the United States and Platinum in Canada as well (though it would ultimately be overshadowed by the band’s third album Toys in the Attic).

Only one song on this album is a cover, Rufus Thomas’s “Walkin’ the Dog.” The rest are written primarily by Tyler, with Steven Emspack co-writing on “Somebody,” and Joe Perry co-writing on “Movin’ Out.”

Without further ado, check out my thoughts on this album on its 45th anniversary here.

The play-through is streaming now below or at the official Colin Marston YouTube Channel. What better way to digest days of gorging on Thankfulness than to take in some utter Gorgutsian death metal technical impossibility? Truly a monster record that will make all your life accomplishments seem insignificant in comparison. Hails.

Pleiades’ Dust is a unique and ambitious conceptual piece, recounting the history of The House of Wisdom, an ancient library in Baghdad which was home to much of the western world’s knowledge until it was destroyed. ‘Pleiades’ Dust’ runs as a single, continuous track that spans over 30 minutes of total run-time. ‘Pleiades’ Dust’ is out now and streaming here.

Get down in the dirt with In This Moment’s “Roots” video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 12:06 AM (PST)

Some people who are more kvlt bag on In This Moment because they are (gasp) melodic and poppy at times, theatrical and very popular. Guess what? They are blowing away acts much bigger than them on the regular and won me over hugely after I finally saw them live. Maria Brink couldn’t possibly be more committed to what she is doing and “Roots” is sure to win more converts as she leads her band in a song of strength and resilience. They put in 100% in presentation, a huge layered rock sound and striking energy and passion. Check out this latest cut from Ritual.

Marty Friedman releases “Self Pollution” video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 12:28 PM (PST)

Guitar luminary Marty Friedman has released a new video for the track “Self Pollution” from his Wall of Sound album. It starts as a technical workout that still has a gritty and rock n roll feel to it though other sections highlight Friedman’s melodic lead playing and get downright expansive and meditative before the wild stuff makes a return.

Friedman says, “This video is the first to feature my live band, with Kiyoshi on bass, Chargee on drums and Jordan Ziff on guitar. These guys (and girl) outshine me every night on tour. The video is loosely based on some of the fun ways you can pollute yourself (hence the title) and takes you from serenity to a chaotic climax, just like real life does sometimes.”

Directed by London-based photographer Jimmy Cheng, watch “Self Pollution” below.

Metallica‘s “Spit Out The Bone” was a highlight of Hardwired…To Self Destruct for many thrashers (my faves are probably still “Moth into Flame” and “Atlas Rise”, if you must know). But yeah, this live version of “Spit Out The Bone” is lively as hell and gets the Oct. 24th London O2 crowd roaring with enthusiasm. You’d think it was an older classic!

Check it out HERE. Rob and James in particular ripped this bad baby up!!

Cattle Decapitation Euro 2017 Tour Documentary Online

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 11:25 AM (PST)

This past summer, Cattle Decapitation embarked on a European trek, during which the band filmed a tour documentary, directed by Paul McGuire / Obscenery Films (https://obsceneryfilms.com/). To watch the behind-the-scenes and live footage from Cattle Decapitation on the road, please visit:http://www.facebook.com/cattledecapitation, where the video is now streaming live. Fans can also watch on YouTube HERE.

Guitarist Josh Elmore comments: “For several years now, fans have been asking the band to release a video chronicle with live performance footage and enhanced or ‘behind the scenes’ documentation. During a recent European run, our friend Paul McGuire of Obscenery Films traveled with the band and captured glimpses of what day-to-day life on the road is like for Cattle Decapitation and spoke with the members as they reflected on years of touring and what their future holds. The result is an entertaining, humorous and informative documentary that shows the band as a live entity and also what goes on during their down time on tour; play-throughs, interviews, concert chaos, Euro-tourism and more. We hope you enjoy it!”

While we all mourn the end of DEP, the band have some stuff still up their sleeves. Behold the new video for “Limerent Death”, one of the key tracks from grand finale Dissociation ( Note: so far it is a finale, I mean. Ministry made like 3 farewell records after all and now are just basically back so who knows…anything is possible in an age where At The Gates, Quicksand and At The Drive In all have new reunion material). But yeah, whether the band return someday remains to be seen. Meanwhile celebrate their succinct brand of brash bombast HERE.

Vocalist Greg Puciato comments: “So … we could’ve gone the normal route and put a video out before our record came out, but the truth is we were so wiped out from the writing and the recording and the weight of the breakup that we just couldn’t give a shit at the time. Besides, we knew that nothing more conceptual than live footage ever felt right for this song anyway, and at the time, after being off tour for a while … well … there just wasn’t any. So here’s a little something, directed by Oleg Rooz, who lived with us for our last European tour and shot endlessly. It’s only a year after our album came out and about a dozen shows away from the band finale, but hey … fashionably late.”

The bros of Lionheart have released a video for their latest slammer “Still Bitter Still Cold”.

The song title and lyrics are a continuation/tie-in to some of our older material,” says vocalist Rob Watson. “The mid-tempo groove is heavy, dark, and helps tell the story perfectly. This is one of our favorite tracks on the new album and one we really look forward to playing live.

Song Of The Week: “Of Blackened Wing” by WITCHERY

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at 7:08 PM (PST)

The newest single from WITCHERY is here. It is taken from I Am Legion,  due out on November 10, 2017 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS. Some dark death march sections pair very well with the faster thrashing moments for a fully on fire listen.

WITCHERY guitarist Jensen checked in with the following comment about “Of Blackened Wing”: “’Of Blackened Wing’ is a song that perfectly combines both the old and new sounds of WITCHERY. It mixes the thrashing touch of old with the grittiness and rawness of new. It’s one of my personal favorites on the “I Am Legion” album and it will definitely be a part of our set for our upcoming live shows.

Check out “Of Blackened Wing” in a video by Martin Hultgren (Gryt Film) streaming below.

Forgotten Tomb’s 360 video for new song ‘Second Chances’

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at 12:33 PM (PST)

Another new Forgotten Tomb song, this one an 8 minute inspired dirge called “Second Chances”, is now online. The  new song is from their upcoming studio album We Owe You Nothing, due out on October 27th in Europe and November 10th in North America via Agonia Records.

FORGOTTEN TOMB commented: “Our discography has always been divided by trilogies. ‘We Owe You Nothing’ closes the third trilogy which started with ‘…And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil’ followed by ‘Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love’ and it’s the heaviest among the 3 albums, with an emphasis on slower/mid tempos and a sludgier approach while retaining also our trademark melodies and dissonant arpeggios, plus some twists which open new doors to the next era of the band. Due to circumstances surrounding it, it’s been an extremely painful album to make and therefore it’s one of our darkest, while being also filled with raw energy”.

British heavy metal act, SAVAGE MESSIAH, have just released a video for their brand new single, “Wing And A Prayer”, which is taken off their upcoming album, Hands Of Fate!

Frontman David Silver comments: “This is a powerful snapshot of our upcoming album, loud and anthemic! With my favourite guitar solo yet. We’ve had this song in our set for the past few shows and have been really taken aback at how ‘instant’ the song has been, and how well fans have reacted to it, so we’re really excited to share this video for all of you.”
