Alestorm’s “No Grave But The Sea” sets forth on May 26th

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 5:39 PM (PST)

A friendly reminder that Alestorm, your favorite band of stage bashing, instrument brandishing buccaneers, return on May 26th with one of their rowdiest plunderings of the creative psyche yet, the bold and commanding No Grave But The Sea. If this isn’t your thing this won’t change your mind, but if you love your pirate metal? Consider this a serious haul. 5 albums in and the band are as ready to rock, rum and rollick as ever. The profanity heavy and pretty hysterical song “Fucked With An Anchor” alone is worth braving the high seas to purchase this dangerous album. The proud and stirring “To The End of the World” also will appeal to the more adventure and slightly less comedy minded historical metal head, sure to be a rallying cry among those who fly the Alestorm flag. The band are going to really shock some Hot Topic punks when they conquer the Vans Warped Tour this year! Pre Order HERE while you still may!

Footage of Burton C. Bell with Delain at The Whisky

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at 5:36 PM (PST)

Head to Blabbermouth here to check out some cool footage of legendary industrial-metal vocalist Burton C. Bell rocking out on their collab “Where Is The Blood” with the bad asses in Delain at the Whisky A Go Go. Burton has done plenty of cool guest spots over the years from Ministry to Soulfly, but the one with Delain remains a favorite of many. The article also confirms that the Fear Factory break up rumor is unfounded, thankfully. And here is the original collab below, if you’ve never heard that.

We now know that this isn’t the case. OTEP is preparing to release Generation Doom on April 15 via Napalm Records.

Check out my full review of this latest tome of brutal honesty from the ever-candid Shamaya & Co. here.

It’s been a good few years for die hard stoner fans, from C.O.C. kicking butt
to Geezer, The Midnight Ghost Train, Tarpit Boogie, Monolord and others
keeping the scene burgeoning like a fat bowl of lettuce. One of the most
solid efforts you’re likely to hear, Greenleaf‘s Rise Above The Meadow is a
hard rock infused crunching mass of bluesy riffs, pounding drums and a
distinctively Swedish sense of melody to vocals that fall between the schools
of Danzig, Wino and Ozzy.

“A Million Fireflys” is a must hear newly forged anthem that anyone into QOTSA, Dozer, Born Again -era Sabbath etc. will be keen to savor or start spreading as the new gospel. The band’s Napalm tenure is sure to stay great.
I’ve been recommending them to everyone lately, ranging from Trevor of Pelican to probably your grandma. It’s such a good single I stopped listening to Future Brown’s “Wanna Party (remix)” for a minute or two to remember rock is really good when it actually exists.

I’m writing this on the anniversary of Van Halen’s 5150 album. Whether you are a Hagar fan or not, those were the days rock and metal ruled the charts. Greenleaf are proof that you can knock back a shot celebrating that rock n’ roll will never die.

Candace Kucsulain has been an underdog, a hardcore heroine, a mom, a fighter
and much more. Her band Walls Of Jericho are true veterans of the metalcore
scene, trench fighters who have done a lot over the years until a recent near
decade break between albums.

One listen to Napalm Release No One Can Save You From Yourself will not only
knock the dust from your skull but you’ll be really thankful the Detroit
natives are back to shitkick some sense into the current crop. Through and
through this album is a fierce winner, full of engaging topics, inspiring
motivational lyrics, ballistic breakdowns and crowd friendly chants that don’t
suck. Prepare to get very fired up.

It was great to talk to Candace about her career, her beliefs and how this
time it was very cool having everyone in the band contribute something to the
lyrical hardcore cookpot.

Headed to an Anthrax For All Kings listening party now but this news had to be shared! SO stoked!

Ladies and Gentlemen of The Order!

We are very happy to announce that our second album, ‘Red Robes’, will be released via Napalm Records on May 27th. Check out the artwork below, again done by our brilliant friend Henrik Jacobson.

Album Review: Delain – “Lunar Prelude”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 at 12:32 PM (PST)

650_Delain_CMYK

Delain are one of the funnest bands around and have always had an endearing ability to cross over to different fan basses with catchy vocals, strings, big rock guitar and unbridled ambition. The Human Contradiction was a recent win and tours in support of the record with Sabaton and Within Temptation (in particular) found the band playing to some of the biggest crowds of their lives. One gnarly testicle injury aside, things have been pretty awesome for the band.

My appreciation for the group has grown since I reviewed their last album here and said I wished it had more shredding. All around awesome guitarist Timo Somers became my friend and sent me videos showing he could shred his ass off. But that isn’t always what is best for a song. The band really act as a team, and that is more evident than ever before on this EP. I interviewed Charlotte Wessels for New Noise a year or so back also and not only was she nice and professional but her answers were very thoughtful.

These are genuine, cool people who rather than preach “rock aint dead” simply prove it by kicking ass. Once they draw you in it is hard not to keep rooting for them.

Two new songs and some excellent live renditions greet fans here. It isn’t essential but it sure aint unwelcome either. “Suckerpunch” has a few clunky lyrics but the sweeping, cinematic opera metal of “Turn The Lights Out” and a new, more futuristic sounding version of “Don’t Let Go” that is sure to add awesome dynamics to any concert make this worth purchasing.

On top of the new and re-imagined studio tracks you also get some live songs from this ever hustling and bustling band of rock warriors.

“Stardust” , a newer fan favorite is delivered to a huge sounding audience along with takes on “Lullaby” , “Army Of Dolls” and even an additional live version of the new single”Suckerpunch”.

This is surely worth your time.

Metalcore trench fighters Walls Of Jericho have a new song perfect for relentlessly moshing or relentlessly never giving up and weight lifting, etc. Which might sound patronizing except it is awesome and will make you want to get jacked and defeat all your demons. That is always a good thing in this dumb world of morons.

Their new record is called No One Can Save You From Yourself, due out on March 25 on Napalm.

According to vocalist Candace Kucsulain, “This is dedicated to my brother Larry Kucsulain who lost his battle to cancer this day last year.” 

My dad also died of Cancer about this time last year, so #fuckcancer and three cheers to WoJ. They slew when I saw them open for Life Of Agony recently.

This band is kicking ass hard again lately and we are lucky because they have always been a guiding light for inspiration and acceptance in the scene. Plus, they always bring the mosh and have done their time in the underground with pride instead of whining.

Conan announce North American tour

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, January 15, 2016 at 12:47 PM (PST)

conan-serial-hawk

UK metalheads Conan have announced a North American tour.

Conan will be touring in support of their album Revengeance which will be released on January 29 via Napalm Records.

Conan will receive report on their tour from Serial Hawk. The tour will start on March 3, run 19 shows and wrap up on March 26.

Frontman Jon Davis had this to say about the album and the tour, “Revengeance is the sound of hacking and slashing in Golden Axe, throwing coins into Gauntlet and still failing. Failure and triumph, sword and sorcery. We are excited to visit the US again and make our first trip to Canada. Our tour in 2015 was awesome, and we look forward to doing this all again. See you at the front.”

Check out tour dates, the Revengeance track list  and title track here.

Leaves’ Eyes post 2015 Latin America tour report: El Salvador

Liv from Leaves’ Eyes is always having interesting adventures and she talks about her astounding metal band’s recent days in El Salvador  with loads of photos HERE

NO SLEEP FOR THE WICKED
Atrocity & Leaves’ Eyes across Latin America 2015
A report by Liv Kristine

14. May
San Salvador, El Salvador, greeted us with warm weather and sunshine. Great to have a nap at the hotel’s pool. The friendly staff provided us with coconut-pineapple-mango juice non stop. After three espressos on top our promoter team picked us up to take us to the venue. We knew it would be hot, but that gig was one big sauna! Two very friendly police officers paid us a visit, however, not to tell us about restrictions; they were interested in Joris’ blast beat drumming and life on the road, moreover, life in Europe. We were very happy to meet & greet out metal audience in El Salvador for the first time. In the backyard of the venue the mangoes were falling down every 2 minutes as we were taking photos and doing signings every. I wish this sweet, awesome fruit would grow in my own garden! 

To be continued!

Band Spotlight: Powerwolf

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, November 11, 2015 at 1:31 PM (PST)

11193385_926064827446268_1262209976928722413_nCombining lycanthropic horror and fury with power metal’s grandiosity and a gothic sense of high drama, Powerwolf are obviously geniuses. Not everyone gets to spend their lives doing something as awesome as being in a metal band with such big wolf cajones, but the Romanian’s in PW are truly Blessed & Possessed.
