The Top 6 Albums of 2015 (longhairedpoet)

Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, December 26, 2015 at 7:32 PM (PST)


With news late this year that Eddie Hermida is getting back together with All Shall Perish, with an Ozzy solo album expected in 2016, with talk of another Black Sabbath album and with another Meat Loaf album in the works, there’s a lot to look forward to in the coming years.

2015 was a bad year for me personally, but I wanted to make sure that unlike in 2014, I came and did a ‘best of’ list.

Looking back at the year that was, I tried to be as thorough as I could be. In the end I came up with six brutal fucking albums.

So, without any further ado, here it is – my top 6 albums of 2015.

No fucks given, longstanding UK tyrants CRADLE OF FILTH, will return to North America next year on the Inquisitional Torture Tour 2016!  January 26th through March 8th marks the journey, hitting twenty-seven cities. Support will be provided by the crowd movers in Butcher Babies and the mind blowing Ne Obliviscaris from Australia. Seriously, I am just getting into the latter’s Citadel album and it is completely rewarding and multi-faceted. Tickets are now available at THIS LOCATION.

Dates BELOW.

“I smell a massacre!” We’ve got some exclusive Black Label Society, Hatebreed and Butcher Babies shots from staff photog Matt Slater. The show is from January’s stop at the Webster in Hartford, CT and from the looks of it the show was pretty intense. I’m a big fan of all of these bands. Hatebreed have been metalcore originators for a long time, since Slater and I used to go see them (and in Matt’s case his band Beneath The Remains used to open for them) in Poughkeepsie hardcore’s arguable heyday in the late 90’s-early 00’s. Black Label? It’s fuckin’ Zakk. What else is there to know? And as for Butcher Babies? They get a lot of shit for looking good but you know what? The band is not only about sex or some BS. Pay attention to their Instagram feeds and you’ll see how they really work hard, push themselves and care about connecting to their fan base as a full band. I agree that women shouldn’t be exploited but don’t think that means every woman and/or man in a band has to leave their outfits from showing too much all the time either. Bottom line? Butcher Babies fuckin’ rule! Go listen to Goliath now and tell me you don’t want to pit it up during “C8h18 (Gasoline)”!

Anyway, check out the shots BELOW. As Hatebreed scream “This Is Now!!”

Butcher Babies’ Carla Harvey releases second excerpt from new novel

Posted by longhairedpoet on Monday, September 1, 2014 at 12:25 PM (PST)


Co-vocalist for the Los Angeles femme-powered metal band Butcher Babies‘ Carla Harvey has recently dropped a new book, which was her first foray into novel-writing.

The novel entitled Death and Other Dances is a semi-autobiographical work that tells the story of Autumn Franklin. Autumn is an awkward, biracial Detroit native.

Harvey has released two excerpts from the novel. Here is a small clip from chapter seven:

“I was seven years old when I’d first decided I wanted to be a stripper. Pre-separation, my parents had left us with our Aunty Denise for a week while they vacationed in Las Vegas. When they came back, they brought with them a Barbie doll-sized showgirl for me, mounted on a platform. She was dressed in a black sequined unitard with black feathers artfully positioned in her perfectly-coiffed blonde hair. Her lips were pouty, her eyelids painted electric blue. I fell in love with her immediately. Many hours were spent studying the doll; her shiny plastic limbs, lumps of breasts, flawless face stuck in a coquettish expression. She represented everything that I wanted to be and was not: A beauty queen as well as a tiny temptress on a pedestal. I was just a chubby, buck-toothed kid that got in the way of my parents’ burgeoning arguments.”

You can read all of chapter seven via Loudwire and another excerpt from Revolver.
