GOJIRA release “Another World” track

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, August 6, 2020 at 5:53 AM (PST)

GOJIRA, arguably the best band in heavy music by a long shot, have released a new music video for stand alone track “Another World”. It has a classic Gojira blend of propulsive and relentless riffing patterns with hoarse melodies and a yearning for more in a big Universe. The animated video has a scientific theme and is an entertaining journey. Another grand slam from the masters.

Intronaut cover Creedence

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Saturday, July 25, 2020 at 8:05 PM (PST)

Intronaut has released a new digital single, “Run Through the Jungle” – a cover version of the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic! Guitarist/vocalist Sacha Dunable comments: “Sometime during the writing process for ‘Fluid Existental Inversions’, I had the idea to cover this song, from one of my favorite bands and songwriters of all time. The relatively simple harmonic structure of the original recording made for a great blank canvas for us to ‘Intronaut’ the song up quite a bit. We tracked most of the song during the ‘FEI’ session but didn’t have time to finish until this spring.”

Intronaut released their sixth full-length, Fluid Existential Inversions, this past February via Metal Blade Records. Featuring some of the most dramatic and epic sounds of their career, Fluid Existential Inversions is a unique album that stands apart from their catalogue. “We pushed ourselves to be bigger and better, musically speaking, and to me that’s the essence of progressive music,” states guitarist/vocalist Sacha Dunable. “On this album, there are drums played in ways I’ve never heard before. There are synths used in contexts I’ve never heard before. Intronaut has the most unique bass player in all of heavy metal as far as I’m concerned, and I even practiced guitar to get myself out of my comfort zone. So I think we progressed and made the best album ever.”

Black Veil Brides have today released the re-recorded track “Perfect Weapon” off their recently announced brand new, re-imagined, re-recorded 2020 edition of their debut album re-titled Re-Stitch These Wounds. It sounds dominating and confident. Fans can check out the re-imagined track, “Perfect Weapon” below. This new album comes in celebration of the 10th anniversary of their debut We Stitch These Wounds. The forthcoming album Re-Stitch These Wounds will be released via Sumerian Records on Friday, July 31st. Pre-Orders are available from ReStitchTheseWounds.com.

Speaking on Re-Stitch These Wounds and his band’s 10th year milestone, frontman, Andy Biersack says:

“We are so excited to have the opportunity to revisit and reimagine our debut album for its 10 year anniversary. A decade ago I was just a teenager trying to find my way and meet like minded musicians, I was fortunate enough to meet Jake and Jinxx and we clicked instantly. I can remember writing so many of these songs in the tiny Hollywood apartment Jake and I shared and tracking our own demos, so to have the opportunity to take a look at these songs again and update them for the modern era of the band with Jake at the helm producing and mixing is a full circle moment for us.

We have never been happier as a band then in the current lineup and it’s amazing to get the chance to start over and do with this record what we always wished we could have done the first time around. This isn’t meant to be a replacement for the original album but rather a companion piece that we hope fans can enjoy and see the musical evolution of the band in a unique way.”

Helios are going to be turning a lot of heads. The tri-state area band was formerly known as Storm Dragon and now is composed of legend Tim Aymar (Pharaoh, Control Denied) , Jonathan Stanley (Mirror Mirror & Bury My Blessings), Eric Rymers (Shiva Stone), Jack Buckholt, and Jeff Loy. They have some scorching new demo material out that already crushes many band’s completed albums. Tim sounds absolutely phenomenal with these guys and the material is complex but accessible for a near perfect heavy metal experience. It is a great blend of technical skill and direct songwriting with sky rattling vocal heights, a super tight rhythm section and crunchy riffs. Looking forward to more! I asked the band how it felt to have things moving forward. Anyone from Priest and trad metal fans to power metal fans to disciples of their previous bands will love this!

“It feels very rewarding! We have worked so hard to rebuild and reinvent the band and we think the addition of Tim did just that. We thank the fans and friends of the band for being so patient through this and we can’t wait to finish the record and play live for everyone!” – Jonathan Stanley.

The friends at MetalSucks are reporting that Matt Heafy has a new solo deal with Roadrunner. Makes sense. He plays his ass off doing covers and other various things all the time. More Matt!

He also has made a metal cover of the iconic “Toss A Coin To Your Witcher”! I have been praying too the Gods of Metal to have Hetfield sing this in season 2, but I will settle for Heafy! Sounds damn close anyway! Hails!

Crank this for max nerdy joy! Also, Trivium put out one of the best albums so far this year.

A surprise 2 song Walking Bombs covers EP for you folks today, recorded May/June during quarantine. The artists Gridfailure and Globelamp helped with various elements on the EP as well.

All ongoing sales of this release will be donated to the Marsha P. Johnson Institute: marshap.org#

#blacktranslivesmatter #pride2020

Here are two lo-fi covers I did this Spring from home with additional support from Gridfailure and Globelamp on certain aspects. It was unintentional, but both songs deal with different aspects of relating to the concepts of self and relationships.

“I Can’t Stand” is one of my favorite Zola Jesus songs and covering anything by her is clearly friggin’ daunting because she is so talented, like a miraculous forest spirit. I think it is cool we have the same birthday. I wanted to focus on feeling the emotion and letting it be my own respectful manifestation of a song I love which I find incredibly moving. People can find themselves alone for many reasons, especially for being different. I wrote Nika and asked if it was ok to try to pull off and she gave me blessing to cover it, which was super awesome. It was also wonderful to have Gridfailure and Globelamp help me with recording different elements for max vibe!”

“Jealous Again” is one of the most aggro Black Flag classics and, frankly, I wanted to yank some of the frankly awful machismo out of it and make it a melodic but twitchy sort of examination of the mechanics of paranoia (without revealing if it’s unfounded or not). Now with Dave Brenner’s help it sounds like a wet cave full of ghosts. The slight organ added was fun because it is this monstrous thing that has apartment hopped with me and my partner and we never plugged in much until now. Oh, and I snuck a Biz Markie Easter Egg in there.” – Morgan Y. Evans

New York City’s THE THIRD KIND – comprised of current and former members of All Out War, Bastard Clan, Vise Massacre, Awkward Thought, and more – will release their debut LP, Man vs Earth, this Friday. As its assault on the public looms, Toilet Ov Hell is now hosting an advance stream of the entire album, and the band has scheduled a livestream performance from NYC for the day of its release.

Engineered by THE THIRD KIND’s Taras Apuzzo at the band’s home studio at Otter House Studios in Long Island City, Man vs Earth was mastered by Dan Emery at Black Matter Mastering (Kool Keith, Krieg, Dwarves) and completed with cover art by Richard Muller and Frankie Accordi, and layout/design by Apuzzo.

The band offers, “Man vs Earth comes from a proletariat perspective. This music is built to inspire action, alive and fierce like the sun. Each song is written as a fable generally relatable to current events coupled with a reflection of the past. To ride it to win.”

Toilet Ov Hell writes, “…THE THIRD KIND are ready to throw down against all comers with their new album Man vs Earth. While some bands look to the stars and get all googly-eyed thinking about little green men, THE THIRD KIND turn their focus inwards to humanity and don’t like what they see.”

Stream THE THIRD KIND’s Man vs Earth LP at the Toilet Ov Hell portal RIGHT HERE.

THE THIRD KIND will self-release Man vs Earth on black vinyl LP and all digital platforms this Friday. Find preorders HERE.

Today Myrkur‘s Amalie Bruun joins forces with renowned multi-instrumentalist Anna von Hausswolff to reimagine Björk’s classic, “All Is Full of Love”. Bruun comments, “From our homes in Denmark and Sweden we decided to record a simple, fragile and raw version of Björk’s “All Is Full of Love”. A song we consider to be one of the most beautiful and encouraging songs, that is a reminder to stay open to receive love even in times like these.”

The Contortionist frontman Michael Lessard has released a new single and music video today titled “Use The Rest,” his first solo debut. The music video, directed by Lessard himself, is an emotional ride through a dynamic dreamscape that doesn’t exactly end where it begins. “I’m beyond excited to announce the release of my debut song to the world!” says Lessard. “I’ve worked very hard to make a song and video that I thought would be the best representation of what is to come.”

When asked about the possibility of new music, Michael states, “‘Use The Rest’ is the first of many singles/videos to be released. I’ve been lucky enough to team up with Good Fight Music, who have allowed me to build on the idea of creating standalone pieces of music and video for now. I look forward to sharing more music very soon!”

“Use The Rest” by Michael Lessard is available now on all streaming platforms via Good Fight Music. He also reassured fans online that new TC music is on the way in the future as well. This is all great news!

Months back Lessard also directed the clip for his band’s cover of the Pumpkins unabashed smash (see what I did there?) “1979”!

Hey everyone. I am feeling pretty emotionally drained after having to explain to cis people what I mean by “demiflux” as if I am an alien. Very thankful for Daniel Radcliffe speaking out against JK Rowling’s transphobic problem spots. No one is trying to “erase” cis people. That is stupid. I also can’t fathom how JK Rowling could invent the Obscurial with all the horrible repression that goes with that dark cloud of energy and have the part PLAYED by a real life enby and still not see the irony of her own phobias. Everyone PLEASE read this Scientific American article again.

Anyway, mighty INTER ARMA have a bad ass new cover of “March Of The Pigs” out and it is just what the doctor ordered. Head here to pick up new covers record Garbers Days Revisited.

INTER ARMA Comments:
Hi. We released our cover of Nine Inch Nails’ March of the Pigs this past Tuesday, but felt it would have been inappropriate to latch onto the outrage we’re all experiencing to promote a cover album, even if by happenstance. If you want to hear it, it’s out there. In the meantime, we suggest that you continue to fight against police brutality and institutionalized racism however you can. It’s working. If you’ve got the means, please consider giving a few or a lot of dollars to the Richmond Community Bail Fund and/or BEAM (Black Emotional And Mental Health). Links below. Black Lives Matter.
Thanks.

US prog metal outfit OCEANS OF SLUMBER announce the release of their new and self-titled album out on September 4th via Century Media Records worldwide. To celebrate the announcement, the band have released “A Return To The Earth Below”, the first single off the new record. Watch the video for “A Return To The Earth Below” now HERE.

“Within ourselves, just as within our societies, there are cycles that need to be broken. Cycles that hold us down, that tear us apart, that give us anguish. Sometimes without warning these cracks surface and they trigger a cascade of emotional vulnerabilities, emotional turmoil, even hopelessness. But at some point we must stop running. Stop running from the pain, stop running from the truth, stop running from ourselves. In the light of this self reflection is where we will find peace, both inwardly and outwardly. A Return To The Earth Below is about that journey. It is about the collision of the heart and mind in struggling to find that internal resolution. We feel that the timing of this single couldn’t be more appropriate, as we have all found ourselves at the crossroads of change,” states OCEANS OF SLUMBER vocalist Cammie Gilbert.

The self-titled album is available as standard CD jewelcase, gatefold black 2LP+CD, digital album and can be pre-ordered HERE.

“We’d like to thank Giannis Nakos for the beautiful artwork that captures not only our imagination, but the depths and darkness of the story the album holds within. While there’s plenty more to come, we must be patient for the full album that’s set to release September 4th. For now please enjoy A Return to the Earth Below,” adds Gilbert about the album art.

Oceans Of Slumber track-list:
Soundtrack To My Last Day
Pray For Fire
A Return To The Earth Below
Imperfect Divinity
The Adorned Fathomless Creation
To The Sea
The Colors of Grace
I Mourn These Yellow Leaves
September (Those Who Come Before)
