    L7 will scatter the rats with effortless glances and …RIFFS.

Sometimes I feel like the metal and punk scene has their psychic periods synchronized in that it seems like my inbox will have several days of fairly cool news and yadda yadda and then suddenly EVERYONE dumps press releases for a ton of cool stuff all at once. It happens every week where one or two days are monster compared to others. It is hard enough keeping up on one pop star at a time these days, haha. The tea is always spilling and the party continues. Add multiple genres in there entirely unrelated to the mainstream and throw in a lot of underground constant happenings as well as keeping up with the shitstorm of American politics and a zillion daily more mundane tasks and you have a semblance of the tornado in my head, lol.

Anyway, today I have waded through the cluttered moat of press releases or things I found myself through web crawlin’ and have metaphorically slid under the falling portcullis to take over Castle awesomeness and command my faithful followers (no one) to blow horns and cry the news of the raddest musical happenings of the day from the parapets on high and out over the numb minded kingdom of internet buffoons who shall surely be enrichened by my curated selection of newsworthy rad rockin’ tunes. Ok, dork fest over.

Let’s kick out the jams! So the Redbait peeps, an awesome hardcore band I am a fan of, were posting yesterday for people to check out this anti-capitalist doom dirge band Adzes. Well it turns out the stuff is super awesome and inspiring material. Very well paced dynamics and the songs are very self-aware in a good way, knowing when to vary between melodic guitars that tug on emotions as you conceptualize the rug of people’s lives being ripped out from under them in harsh, cannibalistic financial rat-race. Climate//Capital is a must hear of trudgy, Godfleshy clangy bass, more Jesu-like semi-post rock passages paired with very introspective lyrics on society and powerful screams that feel rooted in the metal side of real class war punk. Really inspiring shit and well worth the listen. Plus, it came out early!

In case you missed it, head to REVOLVER to see my friend’s VOWWS dope new video for their “Structure Of Love” redux feat. Chino Moreno. His name sounds familiar? Hmmm. Just kidding. That’s the man right there! Check it out HERE. VOWWS always put great effort into their work and aesthetic touches, regardless if they are making a video or photo shoot for themselves or helping other artists. I’m super into the kind of David Lynchy upside down shot of Rizz with a “lost” highway juxtaposed underneath her and then the image morphs into a spider, rad shit. Woot woot! They stay innovating and at the top of their game, always moving forward. One of the freshest acts in the game, miles ahead of most shit right now. And so many good layers and hooks. Word.

Sludgers Lord Dying haven’t been heard from in a little bit. I was actually wondering about them the other day. Turns out a lot is on the docket for these dudes in 2019. Lord Dying are working with eOne and have a new album out  Mysterium Tremendum worldwide on April 26th. The music I have heard so far sounds like they are holding down their hard rockin’ roots but expanding into a little headier territory with a bit slicker production like has happened likewise to Baroness, Pallbearer etc. over time. It sounds dope though! That’s no shade. Just not a little slicker compared to how gnarlified the earlier records were.

LORD DYING’s Mysterium Tremendum will be released on CD, double LP, and digital formats. For preorder options go to smarturl.it/LordDyingMT

In the meantime, stream opening track “Envy The End” at  below.

Grunge queens and all around biggest bad asses L7 are working with Joan Jett’s record label! Fuck yeah! I am so stoked for this. One of the greatest bands to ever come out of the United States and deserving of all the praise we can muster.

I like how the newer L7 stuff has still rocked but also been a little catchier like Donita’s excellent solo albums which existed betwixt the band’s hiatus and reforming. “Burn Baby” will get in your ear all day and the new video is below! L7 still make you unsure if you’d rather jump in mud, pogo, bar fight or fall in punk rock love as it should be. The new album is called Scatter The Rats and there is no planet in any multiverse where it wont be one of the coolest albums of 2019, scene.

Portland’s perhaps gnarliest band Lord Dying are back with dark power rager Poisoned Altars (Relapse Records), a sludgier album than cult  hit Summoning The Faithless yet still rock n roll grime slime that will own the room live. In 2014 Lord Dying played 114 shows across 23 countries and show no signs of slowing down now. Crank “A Wound Outside of Time” and bring the thunder.

Ever since Summoning The Faceless first decimated my ears I knew this was one of the coolest new bands around. You are strongly urged to quit your job and check out the album trailer below.

IX from C.O.C. is some of the best fuzzed out tones from the band this side of America’s Volume Dealer, perfect to ease the aches and pains of what ails you or to help incur new bruises rocking out.

Just a real rambling rumble here , a sense of friendship and exploration in these tunes. One of my favorite albums in the band’s career, actually. My fave since In The Arms of God, which I dig as much as Deliverance and Animosity and more than Blind, to be honest. Though any era of C.O.C. is the bees knees, the total shit, rock n roll, etc. The band are touring  with Bl’ast!, Brant Bjork & The Low Desert Punk Band and Lord Dying in the best, coolest fucking package tour of the year, in my opinion. I spoke to veteran musical soldier Mike Dean about the tour and the latest John Custer collaborative

C.O.C. audio event, HERE.

Northwestern riff-masters LORD DYING have entered the studio to record the follow-up to their full-length debut Summoning the Faithless. The record will be produced and engineered by Toxic Holocaust‘s Joel Grind and mastered by Brad Boatright at Portland’s Audio Siege Studios. The album will feature eight tracks of blistering riffs and neck-snapping grooves and be the band’s first recordings with new drummer Rob Shaffer (Dark Castle, Monarch). It is expected to see a winter release. The band weighed in on the upcoming record:

“We are very proud to be releasing our new record into the world. It is our most concise and brutal offering to date. Crank it up, bang your head and come see us on the road!”

Earlier this year, LORD DYING sandwiched a US headlining tour in between two European treks with Red Fang. They will rejoin their fellow Portlanders along with Crowbar, Exhumed, Coffins, Windhand, and more at the Scion Rock Fest in Pomona, CA on May 17th.
