The thunderous new single from Kingston, NY-based riff conjurers GET OUT. is now available for public consumption exclusively at Nefarious Realm.

“Moon Harvest” is the name of the new stoner-laced rock tune and it churns out enough buzzing, burly riffs to level entire cities within its short four-minute duration.

“Our song “Moon Harvest” was inspired by when Apocalypse from X-Men had a lunar base,” says vocalist Morgan Y. Evans. “I was thinking about how cool that was and the current world problems of no one with differing opinions able to have rational debate. How being neighborly is a thing of the past, it seems. How it would be nice to just relocate to the moon and smoke weed. But what if even then people came and tried to harvest everyone’s souls in some giant, evil fun sucking religious machine. You know, everyday life stuff.”

Guitarist Ryan Rios adds,” tracking “Moon Harvest” in the studio on my Sunn rig of fifteen years was enjoyable . And now live I have a new soldano rig  paired with a Strymon pedal which has helped add more dynamics to the intro and overall song.” The art for the single is by Chris Smith of Grey Aria Design, who also did the Let Me In album cover. It is featured on a limited T-shirt run available at upcoming shows, printed up by Jeff Wilson from Abigail Williams and hot off the screen.

The catchy yet pummeling tune appears on the group’s new fiery full-length debut, Let Me In, which is available now on Bandcamp and will be available on Spotify and iTunes on January 15.

RED FANG, who recently celebrated their tenth anniversary with a trio of Northwestern U.S. performances, return to the studio in February, recording the follow-up to Whales & Leeches with famed producer Ross Robinson (Amen, Korn, At The Drive-In).

“I’ve never been more excited about making a record in my life,” said drummer John Sherman. “The writing process for this album has been super fun and full of energy and good vibes. And the opportunity to work with Ross Robinson is so crazy – I’ve got goose bumps just talking about it!!”

Axl and Slash to reunite for Coachella

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, December 29, 2015 at 4:41 PM (PST)

guns_n___roses_wallpaper_by_spilas

Earlier this year there were rumors that the original Guns N’ Roses line-up might be getting back together.

Turns out as of the most recent news, the reunion only includes Axl and Slash (Update: Duff as well, more TBA), playing Coachella in California from April 15-17 and April 22-24 with the ‘possibility’ of a stadium tour.

The tour could run as many as 25 dates in North America this summer.

There’s word that GNR has material in production. It took fifteen years between The Spaghetti Incident and Chinese Democracy, and there’s no indication of whether or not Slash or anyone else from the original line-up will be on that next album.

If you can afford to go to Coachella or can afford $200 bucks for a stadium-show, you’ll get to see Slash and Axl back together again.

Album Review: Spiders – “Why Don’t You?” EP

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, December 15, 2015 at 11:33 AM (PST)

SPIDERS_WhyDontYou_RGB

Spiders 3 song “Why Don’t You” EP is awesome ear candy married to hard proto-
metal and garage in the best, most Swedish of ways. I swear, Sweden just
churns out amazing bands still to this day from Spiders to Night Viper to
Blues Pills. This came out a few months ago, but better a late review than never!

This little three song gem is a great introduction to Stateside fans who might
not have heard of the group. You’ll def want to catch them when they hit the
States opening for tastemakers Graveyard in early 2016.

Frontwoman Ann-Sofie Hoyles has a no brainer, rich and compelling voice that
reminds me a bit of Sarabeth from Tower’s impressive pipes. A bit lower and
more dusky than some female vocalists, bluesy and full of feeling but not as
raspy as, say, Janis Joplin. The band even beat Ghost at the ABBA cover thing
with a less ironic and quite rockin’ take on “Watch Out”. The opening guitar
tone slices and dices and the snare sound is perfect. And those “ooh lalalas”!

The production on the EP is clear but not overstated, similar to recent
Horisont. Just pure win and to the point songwriting that will make you tap
your foot and get caught singing out loud in public. If this was another decade
“Why Don’t You” would be ruling the charts.

Saviours kick off December headliner

Saviours_01_12_15_IMG_9526

Saviours bring their year of crash and bash to a close with some Dec. headlining dates. The band are one of the currently active groups I am hoping to see live someday, full of energy ala bands like Theories, Pigs, Hark and Mutoid Man – but with more of a stoner rock/bluesy hardcore approach. From what I hear, this act just gets up there and makes it happen. If you are close, you should go. Their  recent “Flesh Of Fire” jam will bulldoze your mind!

SAVIOURS Headlining Dates:
12/11/2015 The 529 – Atlanta, GA
12/12/2015 The Nick – Birmingham, AL
12/13/2015 Siberia – New Orleans, OR
12/14/2015 Boondocks – Houston, TX
12/15/2015 611 E. 7th – Austin, TX
12/16/2015 Three Links – Dallas, TX
12/18/2015 Launchpad – Albuquerque, NM
12/19/2015 Flycatcher – Tucson, AZ
12/20/2015 All Star Lanes – Los Angeles, CA

Starstruck by Shinedown

By Catharina Christiana

After Sevendust and Breaking Benjamin performed and rocked the house, the curtain concealing Shinedown was pulled down, and it was nothing but a kick ass rock show from then on. What shocked and surprised me were the paraphernalia of special stage effects Shinedown had in store. After explosions went off, I remember the singer Brent saying, “It’s cold up here, but don’t worry, we brought fire.”

I’ve been a fan of Walls of Jericho for years, ever since the old Hellfest 2000 DVD with bands like Brother’s Keeper and Shai Hulud that Mic Todd gave me freakin’ 14 years ago (before we hated each other for a long time). There is one scene where Walls of Jericho’s confident vocalist Candace Kucsulain straight up flips some running dude over her and throws him into the crowd.

I was like ,”Ok, she’s a bad ass.”

I dug The Bound Feed The Gagged debut a lot but in all these years have always missed them live, even
on some bigger package tours. It was worth the wait, a blur of inspired messages and crunching guitar attack.

I have, however, seen Life Of Agony. This was my third time seeing the veteran
band at Starland, vocalist Mina’s professed “favorite venue in America”. They
never fail to impress at this place, even if one of their rowdier anthems is called
“Love To Let You Down.”

No, Mina’s birthday bash found the group and their single opening act both in top form, delivering fired up and relevant sets to a crowd eager for some stress relief but wary of recent events. On Twitter Caputo had written before the show:

2all my #BadSeeds.. let’s keep it fun& exciting 2nite, but keep your eyes open!

Rush’s Geddy Lee says he would consider making another solo album

Posted by Metal Dude on Saturday, December 5, 2015 at 7:42 AM (PST)

geddy leeRush bassist and vocalist Geddy Lee released only one solo album 15 years ago, but in a recent interview with the A.V. Club, he said that he would “definitely” consider making another solo album in the future. On what it was like writing an album without his longtime Rush bandmates Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart, Geddy states:

“That was a real interesting period for me. It was tough, because I had planned to do some jamming with my dear friend Ben Mink, who is an amazing musician, producer, and songwriter in his own right, and a violinist and guitarist. Because we had been friends for so long, and we had never actually made a record together aside from him playing on the song ‘Losing It’ from our ‘Signals’ album, we had always planned that some time when the band was on a break, we would just get together and start writing together and see what happened. We were planning to do that, and suddenly tragedy struck Neil’s life. His daughter was taken from him in a car accident, and everything got really weird and it was just a horrible period. So I decided after a few months this idea of working with Ben might be a real tonic for me, because I didn’t know really whether there would ever be another Rush album. I had no idea; it was not something we were focused on, and people get through tragedies in different ways. I was kind of going crazy and needed something to focus on, so this project that was sort of in the back of my mind with Ben suddenly became critical so we started getting together in my home studio in Toronto and I would go to his place in Vancouver and over a series of months we gathered a whole bunch of material together and then we decided to go for it and make the record.”

Geddy’s only solo album My Favorite Headache was released way back in 2000. As for Rush, they haven’t released any new material since the release of their latest album Clockwork Angels, which was released in 2012, but they’ve toured on and off since then.
