Matt Harvey of Exhumed/Gruesome/Pounder

Hey folks. Drinking coffee and listening to the “Human Being” version from The Spaghetti Incident and my brain is fried from binging Mr. Robot back episodes til 4am, but wanted to share this cool thing Decibel did. This is awesome and responsible stuff, not bands just like biting beer cans and shit. Be sure to head HERE for an online gallery of a TON of metal musicians rocking their masks in support of public health. We need this shit cuz a lot of morons listen to metal, so maybe this will help. Just like Eminem’s dope verse on the Kid Cudi track last night, every bit of common fucking sense helps from our entertainers! I am guessing we won’t see any batshit Iced Earth dudes on here. Halford, Chthonic Diety, Anthrax, KEN Mode, Horrendous, Die Choking (which you very well might if you don’t wear a mask, Matt Harvey, Krieg, Max Cavalera and many more participated. Hails. Very cool!

Excited to see some unexpected news in my inbox today! One of the more influential (but still pretty underground and not appreciated enough by new jacks) hardcore bands of the last few decades are getting more love!

Bridge Nine is excited to announce that we will be releasing BURIED ALIVE‘s new EP Death Will Find You on August 21st! Hailing from Buffalo NY and featuring Terror’s Scott Vogel on vocals, Buried Alive were known for their unique metallic edge and, despite their short-lived existence, proved to be one of the most influential hardcore bands from the late 90’s. Twenty years after their initial breakup, Buried Alive are back and ready to release “Death Will Find You”, an EP featuring two brand new songs and two re-mastered songs from their split with Reach The Sky.

Lynette now has enough arms to give all the trick or treaters candy at once this year or perform a full band concert alone

How is everyone today? I am Reeling from finally seeing the 2018 movie Overlord. That was intense. Wow, a future cult classic. Why didn’t anyone tell me how good it was? Like The Thing meets Inglorious Basterds and with Jovan Adepo! That parachute scene is one of the craziest combat scenes I have ever seen in a war/horror movie. I am also pretty annoyed NY is going into stage 4. I just don’t think this reopening shit is safe yet, periodt. Especially when we are learning how much fucking grift went into the “relief” with no rent freeze and shit cash compared to other countries we are allegedly superior than. Kanye and megachurches and slimebag Kushners get relief but American citizens have to listen to Mitch gaslight? Hell no. Anyone trashing Ilhan Omar on Twitter right now is a moron and not to be trusted at all. We DO need huge structural and economic reform. Do not let bootlicking slugs fool you.

Phew. Anyway, RIP to the goat Ennio Morricone. I did not see enough tributes to his greatness on Facebook. For A Few Dollars More is my personal favorite theme he did. It is absolutely perfect. Speaking of the uber-corrupt Facebook, I only still use it for family and some people I would lose complete contact with otherwise, but I did become Facebook friends with friggin’ Mortiis today. That is one of the coolest things to happen to me perhaps ever. Speaking of brilliant instrumental music, you all better be listening to Spirit Of Rebellion. Talk about a genius.

Ok, so today (it is already about 8pm as I write this but my routine has been completely flipped the last few days) I have news about Spylacopa and Bestial Mouths!

First up, Resurrected In Black is the stunning brand new new release from Lynette Cerezo’s ongoing Berlin/LA triumph Bestial Mouths. One of the key acts spearheading a relevant revival of gothy, club friendly but also experimental and daunting industrial music with psychic cave-like depths (see also Caress, Vowws, Boy Harsher for semi-kindred spirits), Bestial Mouth’s latest is the most commanding yet. Cerezo really takes full control here and the results are incomparable. The song arrangements are even more gripping than before and showcase one of the strongest vocalists out there these days the way she deserves.  Fave tracks: Dry As Dust, The Loss, The Fall.

Come for the Ween cover. feel blurry like Puddle Of Mudd? NO, it doesn’t sound like that. This is just a dumb caption, ok?!

 

NYC avant-garde Candiria offshoot Spylacopa have been an enduring and powerful project over the years, somehow manifesting an almost primeval channeling of energies regardless of the widely morphing genres John LaMacchia’s interests roam amongst. The current stellar line-up also includes Frank Godla, Sabrina Ellie and Michael MacIvor and they have released a killer cover of Ween’s most cult classic tune “Baby Bitch” this week HERE. John and Sabrina killed it on the vox together and man that fretless sounds so fuckin’ good with Frank’s drums. Also love the beefy fills that are like barely restrained but don’t cross the threshold. This is why Godla is a drumboat (that is a new technical term for drummers who create a vortex of nerdy percussion crushes amongst other percussionists, haha).

Mixed by John LaMacchia and mastered by Mario Quintero / Audio MQ, the cover sounds incredible and is for a good cause, to benefit The Innocence Project. Full premiere here at Brooklyn Vegan! Support. Seriously, we need to make sure people aren’t wrongfully convicted and that lives are not destroyed. PMA.

On Wednesday, June 3rd, Killswitch Engage – Adam Dutkiewicz [guitar], Joel Stroetzel [guitar], Mike D’Antonio [bass], Justin Foley [drums], and Jesse Leach [vocals] – began posting an array of pictures from their history to the band’s official Instagram feed: https://instagram.com/killswitchengage/. The band wiped its Instagram page clean and proceeded to share one image per year per day, starting with 1999 and going through 2019. It was a mere hint of what was to come.

Today, June 23rd, Killswitch Engage unveil a comprehensive and in-depth 20-year timeline that documents so many of the band’s memorable career milestones and storied history, with plenty of captivating images. The clickable, scroll-through timeline boasts flyers from early shows, live shots from festival appearances, and fan tattoos. It also traces major tours, video shoots, album releases, Grammy nominations, lineup changes, and beyond. The timeline functions as a digital museum that effectively tells the complete Killswitch Engage story.

The timeline was created specifically for Killswitch Engage fans to enjoy and to reminisce.

View the entire timeline on the band’s official website: http://www.killswitchengage.com/timeline

“I’ll never forget when we first started touring and I had to quit my day job to give it a go,” recalls Adam D. “I remember thinking, ‘Just try it for a year, that way you’ll have no regrets when it doesn’t work out, and you can go find a new job.’ 20-plus years later, here we are, and it’s been an amazing ride. I’m so grateful to our fans for letting us continue to do this…THANK YOU, KsE FANS EVERYWHERE!!!”

“It’s hard to believe KsE has been going for so long,” says Stroetzel. “We’re gettin’ old! We hope you all enjoy the photos, as they have definitely brought back a lot of memories for us! It seems like only yesterday we were playing VFW halls in Western Mass and rehearsing in my parents’ basement!”

D’Antonio says, “Looking back at what KsE has seen and done in 20 years is nothing short of mind-blowing to me. How a little band from Massachusetts could tour the world for this long is beyond me. A lifetime of exciting moments and amazing memories…I would not trade it for the world.”

Today, Killswitch Engage are also launching their Retro merch line, where they will be offering new takes on classic Killswitch Engage designs in limited edition quantities. The initial offerings from the Killswitch Engage Retro Collection include designs from the Alive Or Just Breathing and As Daylight Dies album cycles. You can preorder the Retro designs here: https://killswitchengage.merchcentral.com/collections/retro-collection

Overall, it’s been an eventful 20 years for Killswitch Engage.

Recently recognized by Forbes as “one of modern metal’s most cherished acts,” Killswitch Engage first shook the structure of heavy music upon climbing out of snowy industrialized Western Massachusetts in 1999. The band pioneered a DNA-distinct and oft-imitated style, fusing thrashed-out European guitar pyrotechnics, East Coast hardcore spirit, on-stage hijinks, and enlightened lyricism that set the pace for what the turn-of-the-century deemed heavy.

2002’s Alive Or Just Breathing, which followed an attention-getting, self-titled debut, earned its reputation as a definitive album and was named among “The Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of the Decade” by Decibel and celebrated by everyone from Metal Hammer to Revolver. Original singer Jesse Leach departed the band in 2002 and was replaced by Howard Jones, who would front the band until Leach’s return in 2012.

Along the way, Killswitch Engage have garnered three GRAMMY®Award nominations in the category of “Best Metal Performance” in 2005, 2014, and 2020. They’ve received gold certifications for The End Of Heartache [2004] and As Daylight Dies [2006]. The group landed three consecutive Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 with Killswitch Engage [2009], Disarm The Descent [2013], and their career high best bow at #6 with Incarnate [2016]. The latter two releases would also both capture #1 on the Top Rock Albums and Top Hard Rock Albums charts. Their total streams have exceeded half-a-billion to date. Along the way, the band has shared stages with some of the biggest acts in the world and have sold out countless headline gigs in six continents across the globe. Their eighth full-length Atonement debuted #2 on the Billboard Top Album chart, #13 on the Billboard Top 200, and once again #1 on both the Top Rock and Hard Rock Album charts.

Killswitch Engage have spent most of their career on the road, sharing stages with Iron Maiden, Slayer, Mastodon, Slipknot, and more. They’ve appeared as a featured attraction at OZZFest, Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Taste Of Chaos (with My Chemical Romance), Warped Tour, and more.

REVOLUTION, THE ONLY SOLUTION!!!

In which the now Trump bootlicking drummer of System Of A Down betrays all their material and tells me that Black Lives Matter are the same as the Brown Shirts. Serj Tankian, fuck this clown already. John Dolmayan (aka BYOBootlicker, my new name for him) has truly lost it. Ok, so every other basic armchair expert loves to say the “DemonCRats are thE reAl fashitz” yet COMPLETELY IGNORE the GOP SOUTHERN STRATEGY, but calling BLACK LIVES MATTER the new Brown Shirts is beyond revolting gaslighting. When I interviewed him years ago he was going through a McDonalds drive through. Not exactly ‘woke’ or helpful to the message.

John seems like a Seventh Kavalry Qanon moron who Ayn Rand and Steve Ditko spawned at a Nu Metal bakesale. What a god damn letdown! How fucking sad too that John has compared people fighting for freedom to not be MURDERED BY POLICE BRUTALITY to Hitler’s god damn Sturmabteilung ! While your band stood for the recognition of a covered up genocide you now spread HIDEOUS RACIST FALSE EQUIVALENCY! Fuck Off.

What happened to ,”Pushing little children with their fully automatics…”?

Serj, Daron, Shavo…fire this asshole or get him an intervention like YESTERDAY! For the love of God! Is this why you guys have been sorely needed as a band but haven’t released an album in forever? Just to humor this clown?!! Heartbreaking. One of the best political bands ever totally derailed by one member’s mind destroyed by money and conspiracy drivel. This is even worse than Korn jamming with utter homophobe Mike Huckabee. Seriously, WTF are you guys doing?!! Read the fucking room.

Seriously John, go P.L.U.C.K. yourself.

Hellenic black metal masters VARATHRON will release their 30th anniversary live album titled Glorification Under The Latin Moon on September 25th via Agonia Records.

Recorded in its entirety on August 4th, 2019 in São Paulo (Brazil) during the final show of VARATHRON’s “30 Years Of Darkness Tour”, the historic setlist boasts some of the band’s finest compositions, from 1988 and beyond, most notably including the entirety of classic His Majesty At The Swamp from 1993, to most recent songs, taken from the acclaimed Patriarchs Of Evil album, which made it to an awful lot of year-end lists in 2018.

VARATHRON had this to say about its first live album since its 1988 inception: “During these weird and uncertain days we wish to all our friends, brothers and sisters health and better days to come. In recent years we had the chance to meet wonderful people! We are happy to share with you some important news specially dedicated to you, our supporters and friends: we present to you our new – first time ever – live album! ‘Glorification Under The Latin Moon’ was recorded in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the last show of our 2019 adventure in South America. The album includes a historic setlist with songs since 1988, our latest opus ‘Patriarchs Of Evil’ and ‘His Majesty At The Swamp’ in its entirety. The show was organized by our tour manager and friend Robson Calura and Storm Productions. Lots of thanks to every photographer, engineer and organizer who helped us create something truly special!

TERMINAL NATION pretty much took the crown for my favorite newer hardcore band with ease ever since I first heard them and that has yet to change. 20 Buck Spin made a damn correct choice in scooping these dudes up. Stan is a total beast of a performer and the whole band just nail what they do. This is the perfect combo of ready to go deadly, meteor crater sized mosh pit aftermath riffing and social commentary. Can’t go wrong with this band. Earth Crisis, Xibalba, Dismember mosh/whatever you are looking for, they got ya trampled.

Holocene Extinction is on the way very soon!

TERMINAL NATION’s Holocene Extinction was engineered by Jason Tedford, recorded at Wolfman Studios in Little Rock, Arkansas. The album was mixed by Ryan Bram of Homewrecker Studios, mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (From Ashes Rise, Integrity, Noisem), and completed with cover art by Adam Burke, additional art by Valentine Duran, and photography by Kurt Lunsford.

20 Buck Spin will issue Holocene Extinction on CD, LP, and digital formats on August 7th. Watch for preorders and additional audio previews to post over the ominous weeks ahead.

On August 21, 2020, 30 years to the day after its initial launch, thrash/metal-masters Anthrax will celebrate with the release of the deluxe anniversary edition of their fifth studio album, the Gold-certified Persistence of Time, produced by Anthrax and Mark Dodson (Megaforce). Available exclusively on disc and vinyl, the CD package will include two CDs and one DVD, the vinyl edition offers four LPs, as well as revised cover art that reflects what had been the album’s original visual concept. Pre-orders can be placed HERE.

As with Anthrax’s previous anniversary deluxe editions, the band’s Charlie Benante shepherded the one for Persistence of Time. Disc One is comprised of the 11-track album, fully-remastered by Paul Logus (who mastered Anthrax’s Worship Music and For All Kings. the Anthems EP, and the DVDs “Kings Among Scotland” and “Chile on Hell”). Disc One also features a special “bonus B-side” version of “I’m The Man” from 1990 that leans more hip-hop than rock, and a live version of “Time” that was recorded at Michigan’s Palace of Auburn Hills in 1991. The final two songs on Disc One, as well as all nine tracks on Disc Two, are special recordings from “Charlie’s Stash,” an incomparable wealth of Anthrax music from the band’s rehearsals, writing sessions, preproduction, and live performances that Benante has recorded over the past 40 years and has been kept safely filed away. These recordings will put listeners “in the room” with the band, privy to the evolution of the songs on Persistence of Time starting with Benante’s original riffs and demos for the songs, moving on to Frank Bello, Scott Ian, Joey Belladonna, Dan Spitz, and Benante shaping the songs in rehearsal, then into preproduction, and finally into the recording studio. Said Benante, “you’ll hear parts of songs that never made it to the final recording or songs with an arrangement different from the finished song.”

It is our official opinion that the babes in Mantar were unfairly excluded from being featured in the 1993 Marc Jacobs grunge collection for Perry Ellis.

Mantar are one of the most righteous and raucous bands out there these days and now the German noise sludgers are delivering an all killer grunge tribute album Grungetown Hooligans II. The excellent Brutal Panda is releasing this slab on June 26th. It is directed towards lesser heralded acts who made some of the best music of that era and includes L7, Jesus Lizard, Babes In Toyland covers and more. The “100%” Sonic Youth cover is especially pitch perfect and adds a lot more snarl while capturing the sneer of the original. “Puss” the Jesus Lizard cover is not as booze soaked and blindly madcap Yow microphone swallowing as the original but retains the swing and glory of the riffing while adding more metallic roar to the vocals. And the drum break is still pure fucking payoff.

Check out the “Ghost Highway” fresh take on a Mazzy Star classic below. Kudos to the band for taking a slight left turn here from prior releases and doing something different.

Poppy ponders existence

Poppy has released a rad cover of t.A.T.u’s “All The Things She Said.” She has grown a lot on me as an artist and I think she is doing cool stuff. Nice to see her really spreading her wings and in a much better situation. I think this is also a good cover choice as t.A.T.u were also under-estimated when they were active by a lot of people. She writes:

This cover song was delivered to my label over two weeks ago, with the purpose of being released in time for Pride Month. Unfortunately, in the time elapsed since then, we’ve been faced with a tragedy that calls for our much needed attention. While we are still fighting for equality in the lgbtq+ community, we still have a long way to go, and there still remains an absurd amount of injustice for minorities in America.

I cannot adequately express my distain for how our government, and above all, our president is reacting to what’s happening in America right now.I encourage you to educate yourself, go out and protest, donate, and raise your voice to speak out against this injustice.

I’ll also be sharing a few links to donate to if you have the means to do so.

I stand with you in love

-Moriah

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Sunday, May 31, 2020 at 5:18 PM (PST)

Antifa is not terrorism. It is not an organization. This “President” is not a healer of divides. He is a bully and a fraud. This is a Kali Yuga time period where “contention” and unrest can lead to massive change. We have to remember our shared humanity and also not be afraid to take a stand against injustice, be it CCP’s evil anti-Uighur camps in China, falsehoods about activists or (ESPECIALLY in the United States ) the perpetuation of white supremacist systems of inequality. There is a general class war on everyone but some people suffer even more with less privilege and it has been that way for way too long, especially for black people. It is a sad stain on this country, one that real rebels will acknowledge.

Please keep your head up out there and also please don’t loot black owned local shops. That hurts people who already are suffering. One love/PMA.

Astralborne to raise hell

Morning to all you little fun loving imps out there. Lot of news today for metal. Plenty of new stuff and re-issues happening right now.

Before we start, Season Of Mist have a new website. Septicflesh, Gargoyl, Molassess (Farida Lemouchi’s new band) and plenty of other stuff to peruse.

Let’s get to the main content.

Ohio-based melodic death metal three piece, ASTRALBORNE have today released their debut album, Eternity’s End via Prosthetic Records. A video for the title track of the album has also been unveiled today, which can be seen below. Eternity’s End is available to purchase here.

Of the album release, the band comment:
“The moment we have been waiting for is finally here! For ASTRALBORNE, that moment is over three years in the making, from conception to execution. This is an important album for us, both cathartic and momentous, as all music should be. We want to say ‘thank you’ to everyone for their continued support, as well as to Prosthetic Records for their belief in us and this record. We absolutely cannot wait to share this album with the world and we hope you have as much fun listening to it as we did making it.”

MOONSPELL‘s The Butterfly Effect , a semi-slept on record in their discography, is getting a reissue. Cool to see some of the band’s more experimental releases getting the love lately so more people see the full scope of all they have done over their long midnight ride. I love the green cassette tape option. The band has simply been killing it on the limited reissues and merch lately! A thrill for fans.

Influenced by industrial elements of the Nineties, this full-length release from the Portuguese pioneers captivates with down-tuned guitars, an electronic veil of ghostly synths and the concept of the scientific chaos theory, proclaiming that even the smallest events in life can lead to tremendous consequences.

Behold the future,” states IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT about the release.

Foundational thrash band Trauma prep new album

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 7:39 AM (PST)

 

Thrash veterans Trauma , widely known as the pre-Metallica band of Cliff Burton, have new plans in the works.

Late 2020 will prove to be a busy time for the first wave thrashers, as they will release their fourth full-length release overall, as well as touring throughout Europe on a bill also featuring Ross the Boss and Burning Witches. I dig Burning Witches a lot but defriended Ross on Facebook awhile ago over wack Trumpy posts (before that I was a huge fan). Hopefully he has cooled his jets on that MAGA nonsense, cuz he is a big talent and I have met him in real life. He actually played an awesome show in a small bar on 9/11 years ago that I helped book, so I have complicated bummed out feelings about it.

Anyway, this is about Trauma. What a relatable name for a lot of us! Comprised of members Donny Hillier – lead vocals, Kris Gustofson – drums, Greg Christian – bass guitar, Joe Fraulob – guitars and Steve Robello – guitars, Trauma looks to build on the buzz created by their last album, 2018’s As the World Dies.

“Trauma is currently considering what the album should be called,” explains Kris. “Usually for us we have to think about a theme/scope of the recorded songs and what it represents for the time now. Hopefully we will have something soon that makes sense for the recorded collection of tracks, It seems that the new record title, may be a little similar in its title as to our last album, ‘As the World Dies’.”

Currently until Covid-19 has run course more I am not posting ANY tour dates on the site as I think it is too soon and irresponsible of media outlets. I am not mad at bands for planning ahead with hope in their hearts, but I am focusing more on release based content than tour promo for now. I don’t think anywhere should be rushing to re-open without significant phasing and contingencies as well, not gaslighting that we can’t have a social safety net and can just afforf to help corporate and fat cat bailouts the most in times of crisis. Just letting readers know why I haven’t been pushing any 2021 or whenever tours on here the last few weeks.

But yeah – sorry for mixed energy post. Just wanted to celebrate the band has a new album in the works and you can head over to Trauma’s Facebook for other info.
