U.D.O. to release new covers album via Atomic Fire

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Friday, January 14, 2022 at 5:47 PM (PST)

German heavy metal renegade Udo Dirkschneider has announced a covers album My Way, out April 22nd via Atomic Fire. Some foundational rock classics and some unexpected numbers are on here. I am probably most excited for the “No Class” cover.

An excerpt from the press release:

Titled My Way, the record contains seventeen cover versions of the very songs that have influenced the musician and singer the most. All kinds of classics from music history are among them – including those that you might not expect from Dirkschneider. Not only does a very personal story lie behind each of the tracks, but also a sometimes-surprising arrangement that, despite the very individual implementation, lives and breathes Udo’s manuscript throughout.

“Now, when I hear the song, I remember the time when, as a very young Udo, I’d go out to light up the town and lived all the stories that can only be experienced late at night in the clubs,” he recalls. Here, Alex Harvey’s “Faith Healer” allows the artist to feel those days of an era long past. The fact that “Nutbush City Limits” is also on the album reveals a secret rarely told until now, “What hardly anyone knows so far: I was a huge fan of Ike and Tina Turner, and especially Tina’s voice. We always covered this song during Accept rehearsals in the early days. It was one of the mainstays of our Accept rehearsal repertoire for years. Regrettably, there is no recording of it.”

 

With Wolfsheim’s “Kein Zurück,” Dirkschneider sings in German for the first time in his career, “I immediately felt like the words understood me. It seemed to me that the lyrics were telling the story of my career, of my highs and lows and all the good and bad experiences that life has. There simply is ‘no going back’ for those who choose to live as a musician.”

Trad and classic metal shadow weavers SANHEDRIN create music that manages to be semi-ornate while also not forgetting to rock. Metal Blade release Lights On is the very anticipated new slab from this Brooklyn outfit and is set to take the heavy metal world by storm.

Hear “Correction” today here and pre-order HERE.

On this particular track, vocalist/bassist Erica Stoltz explains, “The pandemic put the unbridled excess of humanity on hold. The reference was a play on the term ‘correction’ as used in economics. The comparison is between the slow roll of global death by virus and other man-made instantaneous destructors like atomic bombs.

Well, a lot of people have still profited plenty during the pandemic and kept promoting excess or staying more concerned about capitalism than actually helping people, but the song rocks and casts a wider view. Check it out.

Lights On Track Listing:
01. Correction
02. Lights On
03. Lost at Sea
04. Change Takes Forever
05. Code Blue
06. Scythian Women
07. Hero’s End
08. Death Is a Door

Taking inspiration from MTV’s “Unplugged”-series from the 90’s, Haunt has announced a new acoustic album, Unplugged Vol.1, due to be released via Iron Grip and Church Recordings next Friday, November 12th. For a preview of this record, the first single, “Beautiful Distraction”, can be streamed now at: hauntthenation.bandcamp.com – where Unplugged Vol.1 can also be pre-ordered in the following versions:

–green vinyl (limited to 100 copies)

–red vinyl (limited to 100 copies)

–black vinyl (limited to 100 copies)

–CD (limited to 1000 copies)

–cassette (limited to 50 copies)

 

During the pandemic, Haunt’s main-man Trevor William Church wondered what it would be like if suddenly there was no more electricity – and, what Haunt would sound like if he was forced to change his vision. Church then got a hand-me-down acoustic guitar from his dad, and he quickly realized there was something more to this idea: he started reimagining songs from his previous records, using minimalist production and instruments that can only be played without electricity. The resulting album – Unplugged Vol.1 – features the following 8 newly recorded, acoustic tracks:

 

Unplugged Vol.1 track-listing

1. Beautiful Distraction

2. In Our Dreams

3. Have No Fear

8. Cosmic Kiss

MASTODON release “Sickle and Peace” audio

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at 12:22 PM (PST)

MASTODON have released official audio for “Sickle and Peace” from their upcoming Hushed and Grim double album extravaganza. This era certainly has my favorite album art the group has used in awhile and this song is the best new thing I have heard from it yet. I like the weird, moody and proggy verses leading into the more bombastic arena sludge choruses, plus hints of flavorful trad metal/hard rock sprinklings and a brilliant, emotive solo. Hear it for yourselves below. This song is certain to add even more dynamics to their ever evolving range.

Riot readers, listening to Ensiferum’s excellent Two Paths and reading my email and saw that we thankfully have an update on Richie from Judas Priest. He is so talented and just two years younger than me. Glad the dude is on the mend – see below in Richie’s own words:

‘Maniacs…

I’ve always been grateful for the opportunities I’ve been presented with.  I’ve always considered myself THE most fortunate man ever – to be able to play my favourite music – with my favourite band – to my favourite people around the world…

Today just being able to type this to you all is the biggest gift of all…

As I watch footage from the Louder Than Life Festival in Kentucky, I can see in my face the confusion and anguish I was feeling whilst playing ‘Painkiller’ as my aorta ruptured and started to spill blood into my chest cavity….

I was having what my doctor called an aortic aneurysm and complete aortic dissection.

From what I’ve been told by my surgeon, people with this don’t usually make it to the hospital alive…..

I was taken to nearby Rudd Heart & Lung Center and quickly went into what turned out to be a 10 ½ hour emergency open heart surgery.

Five parts of my chest were replaced with mechanical components…..I’m literally made of metal now….

It could have all ended so differently – we only had an hours set that night due to Metallica’s performance after us – and it does cross my mind if it was a full set, would I have played until total collapse…? If it hadn’t happened in such a high adrenaline situation would my body have been able to keep going long enough to reach the hospital…?

The amazing Heart & Lung Center was 4 miles away from the gig site – if it had been further away……..

We can always drive ourselves crazy with these things but I’m still alive thankfully.  Whatever the circumstances, when watching that footage, the truth is, knowing what I know now, I see a dying man…..

I’ve been moved to tears and humbled by friends, family, my fantastic band, crew and management and also you guys sending me videos and messages of love and support during the last week – I thank you all so much and although I have a recovery road ahead of me, as soon as I’m able to get up and running again, you’ll be the first to know and we’ll get back out there delivering the goods for you all….!

One last thing maniacs, this came totally out of the blue for me – no history of a bad heart, no clogged arteries etc…my point is I don’t even have high cholesterol and this could’ve been the end for me.  If you can get yourselves checked – do it for me please……     

Lots of love and see you down the front again soon….

Richie…’

This is from our strong falcon –  he will be flying high again just as soon as he is able….

Judas Priest postpone tour as Richie has heart issues

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Tuesday, September 28, 2021 at 6:26 AM (PST)

Fresh off Louder Than Life, metal icons Judas Priest have had to again postpone 50th anniversary celebration touring after Richie Faulkner was hospitalized.

How about instead we all try wishing well a young guy who steals the show every night and who has done his best to keep the band we love fucking rolling full steam ahead for many years now.

Metal Riot has your back, Richie. Sending healing love and firepower to you, buddy.

In November, New York City true metallers TOWER will release their sophomore studio album, Shock To The System, via Cruz Del Sur Music. The album was recorded this May and June at ArtifactAudio in Ridgewood, New York, with Sasha Stroud serving as co-producer and engineer. The album’s cover was created by Morgan Jesse Lappin.

 

According to vocalist Sarabeth Linden, half of the music and lyrics for Shock To The System were written during the recent lockdown attributed to the global pandemic. The result is TOWER’s most complete outing to date — a veritable metal call-to-arms that combines the band’s energetic brand of NWOBHM and classic rock into ten anthemic cuts.

 

“We stayed centered around our established style but took it to new levels in some places,” says Linden. “The heavy parts are heavier than before, the fast parts are faster, the slow parts are slower, and one song is around seven minutes, which we’ve never come close to previously. Musically, there are a lot of firsts on this record.”

 

TOWER (who are completed by the guitar tandem of James Danzo and Zak Penley and drummer James Jones) only has one previous full-length studio album to their credit, 2016’s self-titled outing. While their 2019 Tomorrow & Yesterday EP featured four songs of rocked-up metal, Shock To The System takes TOWER’s sound to the next level.

 

“The first album is already five years old!” exclaims Linden. “It seems so long ago now. The songs that are still in the live set, like ‘Flames’, ‘Raceway Rock’ and ‘Elegy’ are still very much in the vein of the new material. The EP was a bit more simple and aggressive, and those elements are on the album, too, but manifest in a different way. In general, we have grown a lot as a band and as individuals. We’ve matured, and it’s reflected in the music.”

Finnish melodic death metal pioneers INSOMNIUM release their brand-new song and music video for “The Wanderer” off the band’s new EP Argent Moon. Watch the music video, HERE.

 

“’The Wanderer’ is the fourth and final song on our ‘Argent Moon’ EP. Composition by Markus Vanhala and lyrics by yours truly. Our goal on this EP was to try a bit different kind of songs and in this sense I believe ‘The Wanderer’ excels. I don’t think it really resembles any other song we have done before, yet it still sounds like Insomnium. The video was shot on Suomenlinna fortress island in Helsinki,” states INSOMNIUM frontman Niilo Sevänen.

 

“The Wanderer” follows INSOMNIUM’s previously released singles “The Conjurer“, “The Reticent“ and “The Antagonist“, off of their EP Argent Moon, which was released today via Century Media Records and is available worldwide on all digital platforms and in various physical formats. Argent Moon is available as a Ltd. CD Digipak, LP+CD and as digital album. Purchase the album, HERE.

GREYHAWK are a band you should already know about as a metal fan. Keepers Of The Flame has some of the most anthemic and sing-a-long-able heavy metal/power metal hybrid tracks on it and was one of the better records of 2020. Hammerfall, Stratovarius or Helloween fans, for example, would eat this group up. The solos, the unison rhythmic power, the sturdy metal celebrating vocals and strong, melodic epic feel…this band gets it AND have a great name.

Today’s news concerns the band’s bassist stopping a nearly active shooter, however. The Idaho Statesman has the details HERE, but suffice to say we are glad Darin Wall is ok and was able to contain a potentially more deadly situation at The Shredder venue by confronting a sketchy dude. Wall took a bullet in the leg for his efforts and is recovering from the gunshot.

Darin, you are more valiant than the beefy sword dude on your band’s album cover!

The band’s statement is below:

Friends,

 

As you may have heard, there was an incident after our show at The Shredder in Boise last night. Our bassist Darin was shot in the upper leg while confronting a belligerent armed individual who was threatening concertgoers and band members outside the venue. Darin’s injury is thankfully not life-threatening, and after a night in the hospital and a long day of travel, he is safe at home in Seattle, resting and beginning his recovery. The shooter is in custody, awaiting arraignment on multiple felony assault charges. We are rattled and exhausted, but grateful to be alive and breathing! If it were not for quick thinking on the part of Darin and others on the scene, it is very possible that lives would have been lost.

 

Thanks so much to all of you who have already reached out in support of Darin, and special thanks also to the Boise Police Department, the staff at St. Alphonsus Medical Center, and the community members who stepped up and offered their help.

 

We want to emphasize that the shooter was not in attendance at the gig, and as far as we know has no connection to the Boise metal scene. We now know this individual was harassing and threatening people elsewhere in the city earlier in the night, and it seems clear that he was cruising for trouble more or less at random. We won’t let this incident overshadow our overwhelmingly positive experience of this venue and Idaho’s heavy metal community as a whole. We eagerly await the opportunity to return to Boise and rock The Shredder again!

 

Love and steel,
Greyhawk

Album Review: Iron Maiden – “Senjutsu”

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Friday, September 3, 2021 at 9:03 AM (PST)

And now the question must be asked…Is Eddie the biggest cultural appropriator in metal or a galaxy-wide undead magic ambassador? Seriously, we have had Egyptian Eddie, Book Of Souls Eddie, Yautja look-a-like space alien Eddie, Indian headdress Eddie and now Samurai Eddie? Relax, dude. You’re like the Lana Del Rey of metal mascots at this point. It is feeling slightly cringe.

Anyway, here comes the real review…in a time of horrible compressed five second attention span Spotify-advert ready “music” being shoved commercially into our minds and reprogramming us to forget what any non soda commercial production sounds like, it feels counterintuitive to critique an institution of heavy metal intergrity like the legendary Iron Maiden. But being a rock writer and respecting the genre history also means you have to get your hands dirty sometimes.

Senjutsu, the 17th studio album, will give you a general Iron Maiden feel and elicit a certain nostalgia. It also certainly has highlights and if you love the band you can’t help but root for them and feel a huge sense of gratitude and warmth that lends a more charitable view to the records shortcomings. But let’s get down to brass tacks. If you play the new Iron Maiden album back to back with Blaze Bayley’s “War Within Me” or “The Dream of Alan Turing” there is no question that the Blaze solo album blows it out of the water for passionate performances and a much higher energy level. Blaze also simply sounds WAY stronger than Dickinson vocally now, who has sounded winded often on the last few Maiden releases. Blaze also did a Samurai thing first, so I hear.

As much as I love Bruce and he is iconic, and as much as he hasn’t gotten as bad as some of Axl’s worst having an off night on stage reed thin dry falsetto parrot sounds or  the outright gerbil swallowing, marbles and beer foam gargling internet melting trainwrecks in the case of Vince Neil, there are times even on studio tracks when Bruce sounds like he is struggling. He actually sounds better live sometimes than on the albums, IMO.

“The Writing On The Wall” was a great choice for a single, an exciting even if slower track that sounds like more classic era Maiden met with some spaghetti western adventure. It was a thrill to hear the single and gave me a lot of hope for the record. Unfortunately the album doesn’t curtail the bloat that hurt The Book Of Souls and The Final Frontier. Maiden have always been their own worst editors. I guess it is hard when you are used to huge and epic songs and have a very enabling fandom. And I love Maiden and this review already sounds way harsher than intended, so let me clarify.

As latter day metal elder Statesman, I understand that Dickinson and company might be holding it down and emphasizing long form poetic lyrical stories that stretch over vast track times. The problem is this makes for great read along with the booklet story time moments more than an invitation for repeat listening  unless the music is also as in synch with the story such as on the pretty decent “When The Wild Wind Blows” from The Final Frontier. When it works as a formula, it is still epic. When it doesn’t, shit gets super meandering. And it doesn’t help that Bruce these days needs more multi-tracking to beef up the vocals and the delivery lacks as much energy often and is more anemic.

They just can’t deliver the same punch as their younger and higher energy days as often, which is not their fault. The problem is they don’t trim fat or play to their current strengths enough.  “Lost In A Lost World” literally sounds like a bunch of cool yet wholly random and vaguely cheery at times Maiden riffs sort of glued together (though it does have an outro section after a pretty rockin’ solo that mixes the dynamics up and is one of the most thrilling moments on the album). It is a shame the song feels kind of disjointed because the intro of the song is an introspective, weary traveler type section that has some of the most powerful appeals to the bittersweet nature of our human condition on an album of juggled themes. But all in all it aint “Stranger In A Strange Land” (which the Brave New World album title already set a precedent for referencing, it seems) and this new song shares titles with a Moody Blues song that is pretty well loved.

4:31 of “The Time Machine” almost is a Rage Against The Machine riff, so there are some twists and turns. Ultimately the record suffers though from too much mid tempo similarity that doesn’t really crest. Track two, “Stratego” feels like it just sort of ends because it doesn’t know what else to do. While guitar solos are a highlight and the keyboards as well, the solos vary between lighting an emotional spark and feeling like a space filler, it hurts to say.

“Days Of Future Past” kicks off with some punch and swagger that reminded me of “The Eye” by King Diamond before the best riff of the album precedes Bruce’s arguably strongest performance and fullest voiced takes on the record. I kept being distracted though as an X-Men nerd comparing the lyrics to the story or movie version and also wondering why Bruce didn’t just write a song about the Silver Samurai fighting Eddie, lol. “Death Of The Celts” feels the most “important” as far as the lyrics and music having the most resonant connective tissue and the slow and moody intro is absolutely fantastic, one of the band’s best arrangements in years and a song which will absolutely entrance audiences if they play it live to a packed house.

All in all, while I am happy it is here and some of the themes and musical passages are quite cool (including a hard rock section of “The Parchment” that musically reminded me of a less interesting than “Zombie Eaters” by Faith No More), it doesn’t wind me up half as much as I hoped it would.

Heavy metal/metalcore melders Trivium have announced their tenth record. The anticipated riff fest is entitled (quite awesomely) In The Court Of The Dragon and may singlehandedly make George R.R. Martin get off his ass and finish the A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Well, maybe not. Regardless, we are stoked to get more of an idea what our band of merry men will do to follow the excellent What The Dead Men Say.

The band sound more streamlined than ever but manage to pack an admirable amount of undeniable riffing and precise musicianship into this future anthem. I was especially into Alex Bent‘s rock solid drumming on this new song “Feast Of Fire”. Check out the video below.

Tracklist:
“X”
“In The Court Of The Dragon”
“Like A Sword Over Damocles”
“Feast Of Fire”
“A Crisis Of Revelation”
“The Shadow Of The Abattoir”
“No Way Back Just Through”
“Fall Into Your Hands”
“From Dawn To Decadence”
“The Phalanx”

HEAVY TEMPLE tour dates

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, August 12, 2021 at 7:16 AM (PST)

Heavy Temple by Gene Smirnov

One of 2021’s truest blessings is the Magnetic Eye backed Heavy Temple release Lupi Amoris, a mental and physical thrill ride we knew the groovy group had in them all along. This line-up is on fire! Now the first US tour dates in support of this magical document are here.

“We were fortunate enough to be able to put out an album during a time of much uncertainty, especially regarding live shows, so needless to say we’re excited to get back in the van”, writes frontwoman High Priestess Nighthawk. “Music, especially for us metalheads, is such a huge part of our lives. The last year and a half has been rough, to say the least, without any shows. We’ve been practicing the songs from ‘Lupi Amoris’ this whole time, and we’re ready for people to hear them the way we always intended, live and in person, even if we all have to take a few extra precautions to keep ourselves and our fans safe when we get there.”
