RIP Trevor Strnad

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, May 12, 2022 at 4:02 AM (PST)

By now most of you have heard the shocking and incredibly tragic news that Trevor Strnad of melodic death metal band The Black Dahlia Murder has passed away. Through nine albums of punishing and unapologetic death metal worship and funny antics, Strnad led the band to amazing heights and inspired countless kids to feel excited to be part of this scene.

It just…underscores mental health month being a bunch of fucking lip service to most people. Sorry if that sounds mean (and is certainly not directed at any of his friends or loved ones who have tried to help him over the years), but this is pretty triggering to me. I just lost my own mom and just feel for dude so hard. It is really hard to feel like you are supposed to just go through that and then go back to being normal right away. Fucking hell. I just mean that society in general really fails to have enough mechanisms in place to catch everyone when they are falling.

TBDM wrote on socials: “It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Trevor Scott Strnad. Beloved son, brother, and Shepard of good times, he was loved by all that met him. A walking encyclopedia of all things music. He was a hugger, a writer, and truly one of the world’s greatest entertainers. His lyrics provided the world with stories and spells and horror and whimsy. It was his life to be your show.” The band also shared the telephone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Metal Riot’s Top 5 for May 2022!

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at 6:43 PM (PST)

Hello Multiversal/Mad World fans. Being demiflux I have a multitude of conversations with myself anyway, let alone multi-versal dream alternates. For the record I am hella team Wanda. May has been beautiful so far, regardless of who and how many of you we are discussing. Spring is my favorite time of year.

Obviously I am not including how odious the attacks on reproductive freedom are right now. Let me just use this platform briefly to please direct your attention to this Natalie Crawford MD post re: IVF impact from a draconian state that despises pregnant people (hint: it actually makes it a lot harder for a lot of folx to have kids, periodt).

Let’s get to the top five for this month, so far as it now stands. Some really awesome music coming your way, people! Lot of things going on out there and we have to band together and let the good survive and stay strong in the hour of adversity. One love to all the good fighters and light workers and healers and Doomriders out there.

  1. HELIOS takes my number one spot for this month! This band needs to be huge. They just convey the melodic true metal intensity to frightening heights. The music takes you completely away and into an orange clenching state of chemical connection with electricity and metalhood. Everyone knows Tim Aymar’s bands always deliver and this is no exception. Eric Rymers truly commands on the kit and the band fire off some scorching energy. Pharaoh, Helloween and Dark Tranquillity fans take heed! May 13th on Bandcamp get the Touch The Sun self released full length first! “Kill Your Mother” is searing up the sky now!

2. OuOne (InsideOut) is my number two May pick. A hyper talented and colorful group from China. This is poppy prog that permeates your consciousness with visions of human kind improving for the better, the sharply defined yet warm and engaging, complex arrangements inspiring hope for a more imaginative future.

 

3. Ecstatic Vision and the head spinning Elusive Mojo (Heavy Psych Sounds) record take the number 3 spot this month! The band sound looser and groovier than ever, rip roaring through the cosmic Ley lines of Lemmy’s nostrils and Hawkwind tenure mixed with proto-punchdrunk devilry. Fuckin’ awesome and the band’s chops sound honed to the teeth.

Elusive Mojo was recorded live to 2” tape in their beloved hometown of Philadelphia by Joe Boldizar (Sonic Praise) with Bob Pantella (Monster Magnet), and mastered by their old drinking buddy Tim Green (Melvins).

4. Motor Sister‘s Get Off (Metal Blade) zooms in at number 4 for May. “Coming For You” tears down the walls with Pearl and band commanding attention via first rate hard rock that has unmatched confidence…deservedly so.

Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Jim Wilson (Mother Superior), guitarist Scott Ian (Anthrax), bassist Joey Vera (Armored Saint), drummer John Tempesta (White ZombieThe Cult) and vocalist Pearl Aday (Pearl), Motor Sister was originally formed as a Mother Superior covers band that grew beyond that into a snarling and very fun new entity made of legends.

Concludes guitarist Scott Ian: “Get Off is the best hard rock record since Appetite For Destruction.

The band will be celebrating the release of the new album with a live performance at Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles on May, 15th. More information is available here. Fans can also catch Motor Sister at Welcome To Rockville in Daytona Beach, FL on May 22nd.

 

5. Syberia – Statement on Death (Metal Blade/Blacklight Media) is my number five for the month. Fans of heady but physical, deep musical statements and bands like Russian Circles, Red Sparowes , Cult Of Luna, Mogwai etc. will fall deep into the restless post-metal clouds of this moody monument from the Barcelona based brainy and beautiful bashers.

Start with “Stolen Childhood”, as intended, and just let it envelope you. You probably will cry.

That’s it.

PS – F U to any loser who thinks Legends Of Tomorrow doesn’t deserve a proper finale to the series.

The limited vinyl reissue of the eponymous debut full-length from Seattle grunge trio Sandrider  is out TODAY on Satanik Royalty Records.

 

Initially released in 2011 on Good To Die Records, Sandrider was recorded at The Red Room by Matt Bayles (Pearl Jam, Isis, Mono, The Sword) and is a “simmering, brooding masterpiece that gives way throughout to massive eruptions of oozing fire and fury” (The Sleeping Shaman). While they drop the name of influences such as Pacific Northwest icons Mudhoney and Soundgarden, as well as such indie favorites like The Jesus Lizard and Drive Like Jehu, SANDRIDER hits on a sound that is all their own. Wrote Exclaim accurately, “Sandrider is characterized by a sense of restraint and control, a powerful sound that’s carefully leashed. The tone is aggressive and muscular, but deployed very carefully, often pulled back or stripped down for effect. The thick, ropey guitar tone hints at sludge, but resists being weighed down. The riffs drive forward with a momentum that evokes a massive beast propelling itself through sand, forcing the desert to bend around it. Sandrider is vast, gripping the listener, and intellectual without over-thinking. This is an extremely promising debut form a powerful new project.”

 

Sandrider is out now on Red and Black and Classic Black vinyl. Order your copy today HERE.

 

In the mythology that is Frank Herbert’s Dune books, a sandrider is a person who has managed to capture and ride one of the gigantic sandworms that live on the planet Arrakis. If you can imagine someone managing to wrangle a huge wriggling creature, you have some sense of the musical power that the Seattle hard rock titans SANDRIDER has managed to tame and keep control of.

 

That should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed the Seattle rock and metal scene, as SANDRIDER features three of the city’s most unstoppable forces: drummer Nat Damm and guitarist John Weisnewski of Akimbo, and bassist Jesse Roberts of The Ruby Doe.

 

Said Weisnewski, “I decided to start putting SANDRIDER together when I got an itch to start playing guitar in a band again. [Weisnewski played bass in Akimbo.] Originally it was just me and Nat playing around, but it didn’t really come together until we started talking to Jesse. I think we were bullshitting while he was tattooing me when I originally brought it up. He came down to our practice space and things clicked really well. After the first practice we were all pretty happy with how things were sounding.”
Things only improved from there. The band would be touted as one of the best bands in Seattle by alt-weekly The Stranger and quickly found themselves sharing the stage with other Pacific Northwest rock luminaries as Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, Lesbian, and Helms Alee. Since then, SANDRIDER has released a total of three full-length albums and a split EP with Kinski with new music to be announced in the months to come.

 

SANDRIDER:
Jon Weisnewski – guitar, vocals
Nat Damm – drums
Jesse Roberts – bass, vocals

On July 22nd, Canada’s WAKE will release their sixth full-length, Thought Form Descent, via Metal Blade Records. For a first preview of the album, a new video for the single “Swallow the Light” (directed by Michael Jari Davidson//@MJD_DOP) can be viewed at: metalblade.com/wake

To track the album, the band once again collaborated with Dave Otero (AllegaeonCattle Decapitation) at Flatline Audio in Denver, CO. “Dave is someone who does something we love – supersedes what people think of him. Sure, he recorded many successful death metal albums, but his ability to understand pop music and its composition, his knowledge of music theory and his willingness to get right into the movement of a song and its chord progressions, not just the riffs, are things that go way beyond ‘death metal’. He can make hard right turns into wildly different sonic territory without batting an eyelash, and he always has an idea during the deviation, too. He contributed a lot to this record.” Having prepared exhaustively in advance, once in the studio the band were able to try new things, play with ideas and rearrange songs, having the time to go down the proverbial rabbit hole and see where it took them. Kevin Hufnagel of Gorguts also makes an appearance, playing guitar on “Pareidolia” and “Observer To Master”, the latter track one of the most melodic on the record.

Thought Form Descent track-listing:
01. Infinite Inward
02. Swallow the Light
03. Mourning Dirge (Repose of the Dead)
04. Pareidolia (feat. Kevin Hufnagel of Gorguts)
05. Venerate (The Undoing of All)
06. Observer to Master (feat. Kevin Hufnagel of Gorguts)
07. Bleeding Eyes of the Watcher
08. The Translation of Deaths

 


Some swashbuckling The Sword photo set action from tbeir recent stop with Clutch at Hampton Beach Casino for ya this morning. The energy is certainly in these photos which will make you literally hear and feel the music in your head and body.

Check out the latest gallery below (and thanks to Petra as well as the band).

RIP Gabe Serbian

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Sunday, May 1, 2022 at 4:43 PM (PST)

Sad news today as word gets out that The Locust drummer Gabe Serbian has passed. Condolences to friends and family. Certainly one of the most skilled and chaos channeling drummers in human memory. I saw them live just once but it is an insane memory that feels like a dream. It was at Park Fest at Purchase College and I think Biz Markie was the same day, wow. Of course Gabe is also known for important contributions to Cattle Decap and Dead Cross.

Today, Beltane, is his birthday…even more upsettingly.

“This world will miss Gabe as a friend, family member, musician, and artist,” says a post on the band’s official Facebook page. “He will continue to live on in so many ways and through everyone he has connected with during his time with us. May 1st is his birthday, and we hope that you can find a way to celebrate his life.”

Telekinetic Yeti, the Iowa-based duo of Alex Baumann (guitar/vocals) and Rockwel Heim (drums) who recently announced the upcoming release of Primordial (July 8, Tee Pee Records), have added several dates around their anticipated May 15 Desertfest NYC performance.

We are more than thrilled to be included on such a heavy festival featuring some of our favorite bands,” said Baumann of the band’s upcoming performance at Desertfest NYC. “And although we are looking forward to playing shows again in general, we can’t wait to perform songs off of the new album in front of a live audience.”

The band previewed the 11-song album with the release of “Ancient Nug” and its accompanying video (https://youtu.be/dr3bQUAakq0).

Primordial was produced by Phillip Cope (Kylesa, Baroness). Album pre-orders are available now (https://teepeerecords.com/products/telekinetic-yeti-primordial-cd-lp), with the collection available on several limited-edition colored vinyl variants, CD and digitally.

Telekinetic Yeti’s debut album, Abominable, was one of the year’s most talked about debuts, with The Obelisk dubbing it the “debut of the year,” and saying “it could have been another band’s second or third record for the level of cohesion on display.” Metal Injection noted their “explosive live show” as tours with Clutch, Red Fang and Weedeater followed. With Primordial, the band takes their game to a whole new level. The album explores themes as diverse as evolution, sorcery, black magic and the contradictions of the gloriously uplifting yet simultaneously melancholic human condition.

Tour dates:

May 11 Canton, OH Buzzbin

May 12 Youngstown, OH Westside Bowl *

May 14 Boston, MA Middle East *

May 15 New York, NY Desertfest NYC

May 16 Buffalo, NY Mohawk Place

May 17 Columbus, OH Ace of Cups

Australia’s ageless kings of extreme doom MOURNFUL CONGREGATION return for the first time since 2018’s monumental The Incubus Of Karma album. Now in 2022 comes The Exuviae Of Gods – Part I, the first in a two-part EP series to bridge the gap between full-length albums.

 

Perhaps known equally for the colossal length of their songs as much as their evocative and somber magnificence, an EP for MOURNFUL CONGREGATION amounts to a sprawling three tracks over thirty-seven minutes in length. Two new tracks, the lachrymose funereal dirge “Mountainous Shadows, Cast Through Time” and the largely acoustic reflective dream of “The Exuviae Of Gods,” present the ongoing expansion of the MOURNFUL CONGREGATION universe. And lastly, the band has revisited and re-recorded one of their oldest tracks dating all the way back to their 1995 demo days with “An Epic Dream Of Desire”.

 

Over a discography spanning three decades, the towering legacy of one of the longest running underground extreme/funeral doom bands in the metal underground is unassailable, and The Exuviae Of Gods – Part I is another brick in MOURNFUL CONGREGATION’s timeless ongoing bequest bestowed upon this mortal coil. Fans of Atramentus, Dream Unending, Worm, Skepticism, Bell Witch, Evoken, Ahab, Thergothon, and Esoteric, this is a must-hear.

 

The drums on The Exuviae Of Gods – Part I were recorded at Red Lantern Studios in Portland, Oregon by Evan Mersky, while the rest of the tracks were recorded and the record mixed at the Cave Studio in Adelaide, Australia by Damon Good. Mastering was handled Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Come To Grief, Nightfell, Yatra) and the artwork created by Karmazid (Abruptum, Summoning, Urfaust, Egregore).

 

Check out a teaser with clips from the songs on MOURNFUL CONGREGATION’s The Exuviae Of Gods – Part 1 at THIS LOCATION.

 

20 Buck Spin will release The Exuviae Of Gods – Part 1 in North America on CD and digital formats May 27th, with the vinyl to follow later in the year. Find current preorder options at the label webshop HERE and Bandcamp HERE and watch for vinyl preorders to post shortly. Osmose Productions is handling the record outside of North America.

 

The Exuviae Of Gods – Part 1 Track Listing:
1. Mountainous Shadows, Cast Through Time
2. The Exuviae Of Gods
3. An Epic Dream Of Desire
The second installment of this series will see release later this year or early next. Watch for additional updates to follow throughout the year.

POP EVIL release “Eye Of The Storm” single

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Friday, April 22, 2022 at 4:47 AM (PST)

(Credit: Nick Fancher)

Hard rock group Pop Evil has released their gritty single, “Eye of the Storm” with an accompanying video directed by Sam Shapiro.

The rock track is a powerful number that conveys the chaos of a hurricane through dark, electric instrumentals with a pummeling, chaotic metal maelstrom that contains an uplifting message at its center. The video is an allegory of the song’s meaning and paints a picture of the storm with rapid, flashing lights and rain flooding the scene. [Watch Stream].

As for the song’s lyrical plea, the band explains: “It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, at some point we all face a situation beyond our control. The wind howls at your door as darkness fills the sky and everything you know is being tested. You don’t know if you can survive it. At times, it feels hopeless, but it’s not. There is a path through the chaos and a way out of the confusion. You are stronger and closer than you think you are. The storm will pass. Don’t let it bury you.”  

The band will begin their headlining tour on June 23 in Milwaukee at Summerfest concluding on August 14 in Wichita at The Cotillion with special guests, ZILLION and Oxymorrons. The band will be supporting Shinedown on their Summer 2022 Canadian tour starting on July 19 in Quebec City at Centre Videotron ending on August 3 in Abbotsford at Abbotsford Centre.
