Watch List: Metal Riot top 15 up and coming acts for 2017

Posted by Metal Riot on Thursday, April 6, 2017 at 4:07 PM (PST)

Succumb

Thought it would be cool today to compile a list for you of the best 15 bands we feel who are on the way up and are on the verge of or already doing incredible things for the metal, rock, industrial , punk or underground community in general. The criteria is that they can only have up to two albums out under the project name, thus some pretty important bands like, for example, Incendiary, Oathbreaker , Auroch, Yellow Eyes or Junius alas at this point have enough releases to not be considered as “new”.  This list is a matter of opinion based on bands we feel are making great work, big waves and/or changing things for the better! It also aims to cover a wide variety, so you will not find all fifteen as death metal bands because that would not be representative of the scene as a whole.

The list contains new faces, old friends in very new projects and more. The fact that most of the choices ended up American bands was not intentional, just who is exciting us the most right now. It is all about great music and people who don’t have that many albums under their belt yet for the amount of buzz they are getting for the band (haha, Gridfailure would be on here but Dave already is cranking out releases by the boatload, for example) as well as the power of their accomplishments.

Anyhow, with no further ado, let’s focus on some positive movers and shakers here in the now frontier.

Cliterati kick off West Coast Tour

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, March 30, 2017 at 10:49 AM (PST)

We wanna take an extra moment out of our busy schedules thinking about death metal as we vainly deny the onset of adulthood here to shout out crust punk moshtastic monarchs of the moment Cliterati here as they kick off their new West Coast tour. Ami Lawless fuckin’ rules and this band is one of the best. They already feel like a real, cohesive unit in a short amount of time. That’s what happens when you combine good people with a real punk and metal pedigree/actually caring about what you’re doing. So much more refreshing than the 800th million stale over processed tech death/deathcore promo or interchangeable wankers.

A kick ass recent interview we did with Cliterati was one of the ones that sadly was murdered when we suffered a site malware attack that ended up in us losing about a year of content here…and it was  irreplaceable due to the original recording being gone and me not having backed it up well enough like a fucking asshole. Much chagrin and sorrow…BUT, we can tell you to check the shit out of this tour and become ten times cooler in the process just for being there! The band have a lot in store working with beloved and true af label Tank Crimes, so stay alert!

Tour dates below.

Heavy metal punk n’ rollers RAMMING SPEED will release their sophomore Prosthetic effort, No Epitaphs, worldwide on Sept. 4. Recorded late last year with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Skeletonwitch, Kvelertak) at GodCity Studios, the album borrows from the bulldozer riffs of Swedish D-beat, the guitar harmonies of British heavy metal, the raw aggression of American grind and the visceral energy of basement hardcore. The band have teamed with Germany’s SLAM Magazine to debut the new track “Choke Holds and Bullet Holes,” which you can listen to HERE or,,,

Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 12:13 PM (PST)

Weapons-of-Mosh-Destruction-3-D

Oakland, California thrashers Ghoul are preparing to wreak havoc on all of the United States.

The tour started on May 15 in Colorado and lasts for 23 shows, ending on June 7 in San Francisco. The tour includes two dates at the Maryland Death Fest.

Ghoul will be joined on the road by Phobia and Nekrofilth.

Digestor had this to say of the tour:

“GHOUL is on our way to your wretched country to once again scour the baked on scum from the crock pot of civilization. Sadness? Misery? Brutal totalitarian oppression? You’re soaking in it! GHOUL is also happy to announce that we will be playing the one and only GWAR B-Q! We look forward to receiving abuse, sexual and otherwise, from our fiendishoverlords in GWAR, and sopping up their gore-soaked leavings in our palpitating jaws. Also, we will be playing some songs, time permitting.”

Interview: John The Baker talks Skate Til U Die, Bay Area

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 at 10:47 AM (PST)

“I quit driving cars in 1991 to protest the Gulf War.”John The Baker

Very happy to say we’ve got a cool ass interview with John The Baker about Skate Til U Die. This is a killer event with heart for good causes and is ALSO just plain awesome for skaters and music fans. I’ll let John tell you about it in a minute but first let me tell you about John!

Fans of anarcho punk, MDC, Tank Crimes stuff or the DIY West Coast punk/crust scene are often fans of John The Baker. He’s also known as the punk singer who once won a censorship battle in (allegedly liberal) Woodstock, NY after getting arrested for singing a song about cops sleeping with underage girls in town . Oh, and got a settlement he used to put out his CD and mail complimentary copies to local police stations. That was a band called Slimy Penis Breath which also featured a young, dumb and full of cum (this is meant affectionately) Jason Christopher who now plays bass in mighty Prong. JTB was kind of a lot of kids “punk rock uncle” in the scene, though he actually is related to Josh and Joey Eppard.

The 90’s Woodstock/Kingston, NY punk scene I grew up in was a blast. You had Slimy Penis Breath, sludge n roll onslaught .mearth , noise rockers Dripping Goss (feat. Brian Goss of Warzone and at one point Frank Ferrer, now of Guns N Roses), Simone Felice doing weird post-punk rock before his interest turned to The Band, poetry and the Catskill mountains and more. Sean Paul Pillsworth and the Jerk Magnet/Anadivine pop punks. You also had John the Baker’s mega talented nephews Joey and Josh Eppard known for playing in prog/emo bands Three and Coheed & Cambria), plus Shabutie (Claudio Sanchez’ amazingly fluid and funky pre-Coheed and Cambria band with Mic Todd and my best friend multi-instrumentalist Nate Kelley)  and also bands like apocalyptic rockabilly meets Am Rep on Primus-style telecaster weirdos Pitchfork Militia and my early teen angst grunge band Melancholy. Hardcore band (and Metal Riot favorites) Painmask, still active today. AND Woodstock had Bad Brains members living in town raising families! This led to Bad Brains dudes playing on Coheed’s first record or being involved in producing my later band Divest along with a local (now famous) studio Applehead, also where Coheed and Three have both recorded amazing albums.

There was a lot of creativity and home grown shows and a lot of partying, but a scene sprung from hometown hopes, the shadow of the 60’s & also the close proximity of the Albany hardcore scene created a really interesting mix of styles and people in the post-“alternative rock” explosion surrounding Nirvana. Some of the bands are still playing today. We’ve had ups and downs like any scene and life lessons learned. Three/Lunch Meat guitarist Jason Foster and Melancholy drummer Pat Howland were two local talents who both died and are very missed. I’m very happy to say after about nine years of not speaking  I’m friendly again with the recovering Mic Todd, the former Coheed bassist and have had some really good talks with him lately as well as gotten off booze myself. As a rowdy scene we could have taken it easier on ourselves and others at times BUT the cool thing is the music is surviving and as a collection of people we all changed a lot of lives for the better!

John the Baker (one of the first vegan bakers I ever met) was a heavy player in the DIY Woodstock 90’s scene and always out playing his acoustic guitar in Woodstock. He still plays “Fuck The Fascists USA” and other songs I fondly remember in his current band, the subtly named Fucktard. I’m really inspired by John’s drive and he’s one of the handful of people most responsible (along with my bassist friend Dave Daw and Jess Killganon from the cobaltandcalcium page) for helping me quit drinking out of the bottom of a fifteen year depression. John has always been a remarkable advocate for getting out and organizing shows and benefits, making art on your own terms and not getting pushed around. I remember him showing me with exciteent a letter he got back from Jello Biafra , the one true Dead Kennedy’s vocalist. John eventually went West and worked with Alternative Tentacles, Jello’s label. He even sang back ups on a killer Melvins record Jello did with the grunge godfathers, my longtime almost favorite band ever!

JTB has always been a skateboarder. I’ve got a cool black and white picture of him somewhere with a deck sitting and hanging out shooting the shit with my ex-girlfriend from like 20 years ago. It was awesome to catch up with John and get the scoop on Skate Til U Die, an event he’s dead center of which is TRULY aimed at smashing apathy, people powered transportation and PMA.
