Metal-lifer and frontman of legendary acts such as Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, The Hidden Hand and Shrinebuilder, Scott “Wino” Weinrich, has some how managed to launch yet another band despite his busy schedule. Premonition 13 is the result of more than twenty years of song writing collaboration with fellow guitarist Jim Karow. So far the band has released two songs (listen to them here) and is planning to release a full length album later this year. Label details have yet to be disclosed.

Interview: Wino-Adrift and Riffing for the Silver Lining

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, February 17, 2011 at 2:25 PM (PST)

From the many fists-aloft greeted announcement that reunited doom kings Saint Vitus will be playing the 2011 Metalalliance Tour (alongside Crowbar, Helmet, The Atlas Moth and more!) to his recent tenure in doom super group Shrinebuilder (with members of Neurosis, Om and The Melvins), the man known as Wino stays busy . Mastodon have an often overlooked EP called LIFESBLOOD, and Scott “Wino” Weinrich truly embodies the idea of music as life blood, the force that gets you through. Since the 70’s he has been one of the foremost pioneers in the underground rock world, delivering unapologetic riff after massive riff and grim lyrics that still aim for resolution. From The Obsessed to Saint Vitus to Spirit Caravan, Place Of Skulls, The Hidden Hand and his time in Dave Grohl’s Probot (to name a few), Wino pulls no punches and has earned enough stripes for several lifetimes.

Wino’s PUNCTUATED EQUILIBRIUM solo album in 2008 (featuring the brilliant Jean-Paul Gaster of Clutch on drums) was critically acclaimed, but unfortunately Wino’s bassist for the material Jon Blank (of Rezin) died shortly into the touring. As a result of this and other personal tragedies, Weinrich looked inward and crafted his first ever acoustic album ADRIFT. He has just toured this pensive side of himself alongside Shrinebuilder bandmate Scott Kelly of Neurosis (and they even covered Joy Division’s “Isolation” together during the tour). If anyone thought ADRIFT would be a less intense experience than Wino’s heavier, occult referencing doom material, think again. He lays it bare and tells it like it is.
