So, this news is a month old, but I am looking for any reason to post about Ereb Altor today. I am stoned and listening to “Nifelheim”. More people simply need to appreciate the majestic, vast strength of this band.

The festival announcement update from the Summer Breeze folks recently proclaimed:

All fans of harsh, yet epic sounds are already familiar with our next confirmed band: EREB ALTOR are coming to SUMMER BREEZE 2014!
The Swedes can be considered the legitimate successors of Bathory, because, just as the viking metal pioneers, EREB ALTOR know too well how to perfectly combine snappy melodies with epic song structures. Add to this a bit of ice-cold nordic atmosphere and what you get is a sonic brew that grabs you and won’t let you go. As an example, may we mention their 2013 album ‘Fire Meets Ice’, the title of which is a pretty accurate description of EREB ALTOR’s music, and that belongs in every proper metal collection. Check it out!

Tickets: http://www.summer-breeze.de/de/tickets/info.html

Some of the other confirmed acts this year include Alcest, Bodyfarm, Of Mice & Men, Enforcer, Biohazard and too many more to list!

WT Punk rock summer camp…wasn’t so punk rock. The Vans Warped Tour rolled into town on June 20th in Pomona, CA. The Warped Tour line up this year is made up of heavier bands, but punk bands? Not so much. (I’m not complaining).

Show Photos: “Trust” in Sevendust at Upstate Concert Hall

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 at 7:32 AM (PST)

Some bands go acoustic and make a hot mess of it, but not Sevendust. The melodic and syncopated groove metal road warriors killed it on 2014’s crowd sourced win win win Time Travelers & Bonfires.  Live the retooled classic material like “Black” and “Crucified” and great new cuts like “Come Down” or “The Wait” are singalong ritual release. Dudes prove yet again you can never count them out and they can’t be pigeonholed. I feel bad for anyone who has missed out on so many great moments in the 7D timeline for fear of liking a “Nu Metal” associated act.

Catharina Christiana shot the band at Upstate Concert Hall on a recent tour stop for us and you can check the warm and energized photos out HERE.

Fozzy fucking rule and Buckcherry have the party survival prowess of a world class hard rock act. To this day both bands remain true to their values and rebel with style to packed houses.

Jericho really knows his metal. Chasing The Grail is still one of my favorite albums (especially the epic “Wormwood”). I like that Fozzy has Stuck Mojo roots and weren’t too high falootin’ to not play covers in their early years. Chris loves The Scorpions and Ozzy, which is cool.

I always wondered if Buckcherry could face a tornado and survive.

Here are some exclusive shots from Catharina Christiana of the band’s pairing off recently from their NYC and Poughkeepsie gigs. Oh and buy Rival Sons tickets at the Big Apple venue coming up HERE (if ya want a hot tip).

Anyhow, click HERE to see the photos.

We are big Twelve Foot Ninja fans around here (that way they wont make burgers out of us). But, seriously…the Australian band and Revolver Mag’s recent Best New Artists Golden Gods winners are a fucking blast (with a bit of a Faith No More thing going on with modern twists). So yeah, a blast a half of rock n roll ninja goodness. We had to send photographer Catharina Christiana to capture these guys givin’ it hard to The Loft in Poughkeepsie, NY as part of their first headlining US tour. And just for fun I threw the “Mother Sky” video into this post past the photos, cuz I mean…those girls. Yeah.

Catharina_Christiana_Fuel_12

We’ve been getting requests for more hard rock lately and so here are some live shots of the band Fuel. You probably remember their emotional hit “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)” or that Brett Scallions sang with The Doors for awhile. Well, Brett is a great front man for what he does. It may not be metal but it is certainly hard rock and heck, they even had Ken from Candiria playing with them for awhile and he is like the best drummer in experimental metal so…whatever! I just found out they have a new album on Megaforce as well, so that’s pretty crazy. It’s called Puppet Strings and the reconstituted band has been touring it. Catharina Christiana got us some shots at a recent Poughkeepsie show.

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, May 2, 2014 at 2:48 PM (PST)

Odd

According to Lambgoat, Rochester,NY tech spaz geniuses Psyopus are finally doing a reunion show or…three! This band was really under appreciated, partly because their music is some of the most insane shit you will ever hear, and the group hasn’t done anything in almost five lonesome years.

Get chuffed!

The three dates announced  are:

7/18 Endicott, NY @ Downtown Quarterback
7/19 Clementon, NJ @ Harper’s Pub
7/20 Essex, MD @ The Circuit

While bassist Tommy Stinson stepped aside for 5 shows for some reunion gigs with former band The Replacements., Guns N Roses got a well known fill in.

The Acacia Strain complete new record

Rise Records  announced via Facebook that The Acacia Strain have finished recording their next album, due for summer release and produced by Will Putney (Stray From The Path, Four Year Strong, Reign Supreme).

“Just talked to Vincent from The Acacia Strain. He said the band just finished tracking the new record (roar of huge cheers). They play NE Metalfest this weekend and then head overseas to Australia/NZ.”

If you don’t catch Acacia Strain at NEMHC this weekend (or especially  Sam Black Church!), you are probably an idiot. If for some reason you have a valid reason for not attending like I do (a bevy of car repairs), kill yourself. No, just wait and see Acacia STrain at Skate And Surf in May! They are playing Sunday, May 18th on the same day as Alkaline Trio, soon to be missed (and great live) The Mongoloids, United Nations and more.

Show Review: H.I.M. U.S. Tour in Anaheim, CA

Posted by XxCrashQueenxX on Friday, March 14, 2014 at 8:19 PM (PST)

HIM I can honestly say that I’ve waited a long time to see H.I.M.

There was this super anxious feeling deep inside me that I couldn’t explain. I was eager to hear what they sounded like live, what their stage presence would bring, and what their stage set up would look like.

Eyehategod return with “Agitation! Propaganda!”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at 4:29 PM (PST)

576

Following countless years of personal hardships, studio disasters and times of music industry indecision, New Orleans’ own EYEHATEGOD, with much relief and excitement, are proud to announce the release of their brand new full-length! Entirely assembled and financed by the band, the self-titled, eleven-track long player will be released on May 27th by their partners at Housecore Records in North America, May 26th by Century Media in Europe, Australia and New Zealand and May 21st by Daymare in Japan.

Comments vocalist Mike IX Williams, “I have to say I don’t believe we’ve lost nary a step in the creation of this album and we think these newer songs are a killer combination of classic EYEHATEGOD mixed along with our best production, mixing, engineering and songwriting in thirteen years. The main and total tragic break in the chain, was obviously last year’s death of our great friend and drummer, Joey LaCaze. However, his original drum tracks made it onto the final master recordings and we’re fucking psyched about that… As for working with Housecore, it was a no-brainer. We’ve always been a family, and will always remain a family.”

Adds Housecore founder Philip H. Anselmo, “Being a part of the new EHG record is a dream come true. I’ve known, supported and loved the guys for almost as long as I’ve been playing music myself, and it is our pleasure here at The Housecore Records Compound to have ’em aboard. And I gotta mention, having heard the new record, this is the EYEHATEGOD record every true fan has been waiting for…. Hail!”

Check out  the new lyric video for “Agitation! Propaganda!”  

now playing at this LOCATION.

As a precursor to the release, EYEHATEGOD will play a special one-off show with High On Fire, Corrosion Of Conformity, Magrudergrind, Strong Intention and Ilsa at the Ottobar in Baltimore, Maryland on April 27th. For more info, point your browser HERE.

Hindsight announce debut show with Cult Leader

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 6:19 PM (PST)

1948158_838951546121425_83878024_n

Pittsburgh hardcore band Hindsight -is making it’s debut alongside Cult Leader (ex-Gaza), Yautja, Pray For Teeth and Mere Phantoms on May 20th at The Mr. Roboto Project. The band is described as “90’s Hardcore / Pittsburgh PA / 95 STYLE / TRUE CREW”.

Hindsight was formed in mid-late 2013 in Pittsburgh PA, by members of the Pittsburgh, Syracuse, and Buffalo hardcore scenes. Guitarist, Chris Smith (Meth Quarry), and bassist, Aaron Kaczynski (Meth Quarry/Silence) met Chris Grillo (drums) after he moved to PA from Syracuse. Smith and Grillo both share a love for 90’s hardcore of all kinds. Grillo grew up in Syracuse and Smith in Buffalo – both active in their respective scenes. After talking it over, the three decided to start jamming together and see how it went. From the first riff it it was full of energy – writing multiple songs per practice in some cases. The goal is just to have fun and play energetic, varied 90’s style hardcore with influences including One King Down, Strife, Coalesce, Despair, Strain, Deadguy, Snapcase, Harvest, Trial, Overcast, Mouthpiece and so forth. The good, meaningful stuff. After a brief hiatus last fall – Jack Kooser (ex-Osho) joined the band on vocals in 2014. His style fit right in with the music and rounded out the group.

Stay tuned. Hindsight are a new band sure to kill it in 2014! Respect!
