Impending Doom

California death metallers Impending Doom have premiered the first track off of their upcoming album.

“Death Will Reign” is the title track off the album, which will be released on November 5.

Bassist David Sitting had this to say about the album:

“We wanted this album to sound very natural and unpolished. There’s no crazy digital stuff. There are no fake drums. We wanted it to have the feel of our first album with the songwriting from the last one. We’ve gotten better at song structures and so forth over the years, but we wanted to recapture that old-school vibe, too.”

Album Review: Black Label Society – Unblackened

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, September 9, 2013 at 1:42 PM (PST)

If you thought you knew all about Black Label Society, you need to hear Zakk Wylde and company’s latest 2x Live release Unblackened. Recorded in high definition to an excited crowd at Club Nokia in L.A., the release features the bearded guitar warrior dropping knowledge on fools like it is easy on track after great track. You can just put this on and escape for a little while into bluesy, heavy metal biker escapism. Unblackened presents BLS classics in a new dynamic, with heavy use of acoustics and a stripped down feel, but scorching solos and intensity still in place. it is kind of like if Jar Of Flies by Alice In Chains was a halfway heavier record.

Enough cynicism. Just rock!

This post does not represent the “official” opinion of Metal Riot, just the cynical author.

So, it seems the last decade or so has seen a growing trend in music journalism to be snarky, dismissive or brief. Sure, the UK press has always been snarky. People have always ripped apart bands or movements they don’t like or think are bloated (prog) or talentless (punk). It is a treasured part of rock writing. These days it often seems like the ONLY kind of writing I see out there.

I just read an article ripping apart a pretty good song by This Or The Apocalypse, a metalcore band who actually write songs with current events in mind. While I love the website the critique was posted on and regularly read it (despite it being the most snarky of sites out there), I was kind of disgusted.

Can we please stop the cynical BS and try and make metal and hardcore grow stronger? For a few thoughts. Click HERE.

Chimaira-logoOhio metalcore band Chimaira have debuted their new single “All That’s Left Is Blood” off their upcoming album Crown Of Phantoms.

Vocalist Mark Hunter had this to say about the new track: “‘All That’s Left is Blood’ is an exercise in musical evisceration. One almost feels guilty for screaming along to such audio violence. Here, Werstler’s soloing lays a daring fluidity over the riot-inciting main riff. It’s immediately recognizable as being another classic Chimaira track, trademarked territory yet radical with growth.”

The album is set to be released on July 30th via E1 Entertainment. Click right here to listen to the new track in video form.

Band Spotlight: Crowbar

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 10:42 AM (PST)

New Orleans’ Crowbar are an underground metal institution. There may be much newer bands on the block but Crowbar’s 20 years (and counting) sludge reign always deserves praise. Kirk Windstein’s gruff vocals and abyss dredging riffs are pure, scarred and weathered, yet remain potent. From stunning the world with the low end of “All I Had (I Gave)” back in the day to penning maybe the best doob-friendly riff ever in metal this side of Black Sabbath (“Planets Collide”), Kirk has kept it real. He even manages to also keep Down and Kingdom Of Sorrow original as well without watering down the Crowbar brand. Horns!!! (Pic by R.Weiss)
