By now it is safe to say most metal fans are counting down the days to August 27th when the new Jinjer release drops. The band have always been cool but the new material finds them considerably upping their game, technicality, intensity and emotional impact to new heights and dark depths. You’d have to be a pretty cynical fucking snob to not be able to grab ahold of some of the intensity of this banger and get taken for a thrill ride. Precision, groove, melody and even some Gojira-worthy clobber…it’s all there!

Jinjer state: “With years getting older, we often realize that the world around us is far from what we expected it to be. Through the eyes of a kid everything seemed way more colorful, better and optimistic, didn’t it? When did it all turn wrong? When did it all turn so gray? Is this really the world’s fault? Or it is only about us chasing the wrong goals… the wrong careers, ambitions and achievements, rather than embracing one important truth… Rephrasing John Lennon, if one chases something else other than happiness, then they didn’t understand life at all …”

No word yet from Tatiana Shmaylyuk and company if, as Sepultura and Metropolis have taught us, the “Mediator” Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart. We’re too dumb from headbanging right now to be philosophical!

RIP Bryan St. Pere of HUM

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, July 1, 2021 at 3:24 PM (PST)

Devastated to report that Bryan St. Pere of HUM has died. I had to hibernate after I heard the news today. The band are a huge influence on my life and have been for years, always better than anything that came after them and many of their “peers” from the formative years. I’m honestly too sad to write about it at the moment in depth. Just vibing quietly alone to “Waves” off Inlet and thinking of all the years they have been important to me and the memories attached, etc. I didn’t know him or any of the band but they are legends in my pantheon. Bryan was the perfect combination of supportive percussive bedrock, stylish but controlled flourish and hard hitting chops. My heart goes out to all those who loved Bryan. Eternal Hails, to quote Darkthrone.

KING WOMAN releases “Psychic Wound” video

KING WOMAN have released the video for “Psychic Wound”, the latest music from the group which continues to be both harrowing and comforting in equal measure. Some intense screams on this one from Kris and the band (drummer Joseph Raygoza and guitar player Peter Arensdorf) again provide a perfect framework of dissonance and sonic subversion. Celestial Blues comes out July 30th via Relapse.

This and Donald Rumsfeld dying are a little bit of cosmic justice on an otherwise fucking horrible news day.

“‘Psychic Wound’ is about paying the price for eating forbidden fruit,” explains Kris Esfandiari of the riveting track and its visual companion. “When desire turns into obsession it can keep you longer than you intended to stay and nearly destroy your sanity.”

Album pre-orders, including limited-edition vinyl and merch, are available now. Physical pre-orders are available via Relapse’s webstore (bit.ly/kingwomancb), while digital downloads and streaming links can be found here: (orcd.co/kingwomancb). Celestial Blues was recorded in Oakland, California by GRAMMY-nominated engineer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Amenra, Oathbreaker).

 ALIEN WEAPONRY have returned, announcing the release of their upcoming sophomore album, Tangaroa, out September 17, 2021 via Napalm Records! The first track has big melodies and an obvious Korn influence. Like Gojira, the band have also opted not to discuss stupid shit during this time of unprecedented environmental threat and are instead focusing on world issues for this song – illegal fishing practices. Through raising this awareness, ALIEN WEAPONRY hope to support the important work and efforts of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. If you recently watched Seaspiracy but that wasn’t somehow enough to make you stop eating fish, maybe this video will at least empower you to donate. 

 

Lead vocalist and guitarist Lewis de Jong says about the track:
“We decided to write this song about how the ocean is being suffocated by humans and their waste. The ocean is an important part of my life, and it’s important to protect it.”

 

Drummer Henry de Jong adds:
“‘Tangaroa’ is a heavy and angry message about how we are destroying the ocean with pollution and overfishing. The video ties in with this message, with us drowning in plastic conveying the struggle of ocean life.”

 

Henry de Jong says about Tangaroa:
“The album is tied together with the message of ‘Tangaroa’ – the whole album is more a snapshot of the band’s brains during the writing process. We have also written songs that are about some of our first tūpuna (ancestors) who were here in Āotearoa (New Zealand). Hatupatu, who is very famous in Māori history, as well as Īhenga, who named a number of places in Āotearoa during his travels.”

 

Lewis de Jong adds about the album’s artwork and thematic details:
“The album is named after the track ‘Tangaroa’, and we went with this theme on the artwork. The album is drawn from some new experiences we’ve had as well as some ancient Māori tales. I think we have stepped things up from the last album.”

 

Bassist Tūranga Morgan-Edmonds also adds:
“This album’s use of even more traditional Māori sounds and styles is a very exciting step forward for us.”

 

Tangaroa tracklisting:
1. Titokowaru
2. Hatupatu
3. Ahi Kā
4. Tangaroa
5. Unforgiving
6. Blinded
7. Kai Whatu
8. Crooked Monsters
9. Buried Underground

Mr. Bungle have released The Night They Came Home (Ipecac Recordings), their NorCal band’s first live album. The 14-song album, accompanied by a physical-only film release, captures the band’s Halloween 2020 livestream event, and features the new live video for “Eracist” (https://youtu.be/TUSUlCBE0BQ).

“‘Eracist’ is a unique song in the Raging Wrath book,” explains Trevor Dunn. “There was no initial demo, only a ‘moshy’ riff that Patton had come up with in the ’80s that Trey somehow remembered. Once that was unearthed Patton completed the tune with a double-time bridge and some lyrics about erasure and denial. It seems to me that it somehow feels contemporary while fitting in with our teenage songwriting style. I guess that’s because it was written over a span of 35 years! You may notice that it’s one of the only songs on the ‘demo’ that actually has a vocal melody. Back in the ’80s we were mostly thinking about drums & guitar, which of course, is really all that metal is about.”

The Night They Came Home finds Mr. Bungle performing songs from their recently released album, The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo. The two-hour film, directed by Jack Bennett, is available on CD + Blu-Ray, CD + DVD, and VHS, while the album is also available digitally. The Blu-Ray/DVD iterations feature Bungle’s performance, Neil Hamburger’s opening set, three official music videos (“Raping Your Mind,” “Eracist,” and “Sudden Death”), as well as extended behind-the-scenes footage including several surprise cameos. The VHS release, limited to 1000 collectible copies, is an edited, performance-only portion of the film.

The band performs at Riot Fest (Chicago) in September. The festival marks the first time Mike Patton has pulled double-duty on the same bill, with both Mr. Bungle and Faith No More playing the festival.

“The Night They Came Home” track list:

  1. Won’t You Be My Neighbor (Mr. Rogers cover)
  2. Anarchy Up Your Anus
  3. Raping Your Mind
  4. Bungle Grind
  5. Methematics
  6. Hell Awaits/Summer Breeze (Slayer/Seals & Croft medley/cover)
  7. Eracist
  8. World Up My Ass (Circle Jerks cover)
  9. Glutton For Punishment
  10. Hypocrites/Habla Español O Muere (S.O.D. cover)

Alt metal and hardcore groove fans will be pleased to hear that Cristian Machado is back swinging for the fences after the well publicized Ill Nino shake-up. Cristian Machado (vocals), Ahrue Luster (guitar) and Diego Verduzco (guitar) have announced that they have united to launch new act Lions At The Gate with bassist Stephen Brewer and drummer Fern Lemus. The band have dropped their debut single “Not Even Human” along with an official music video and Linktree.

Good to see scene regulars keep going and shifting forms against the odds while still remembering their roots. Prepare yourself for some thrashing anger, a huge hook and plenty of Nu-stomp.

Find the track on streaming platforms and watch the video here:

Speaking on the band’s debut release, frontman Cristian Machado says, “I feel so blessed to be in Lions at the Gate. We’ve all been making albums for a long time but I think it was time for us to make something special and memorable again. This album is exactly that. Take away our musical history, take away our long hair, take away our personal feelings, just make believe we were never there. This Lions at the Gate album is amazing. We finally made a modern metal album that metalheads will enjoy beginning to end. It’s deep, it’s memorable, I can’t wait for everyone to hear it, I can’t wait for everyone to hear the featured female artist on one of the songs!”

Guitarist, Diego Verduzco adds, “I’m beyond proud and excited to announce our new band Lions At The Gate. Life is all about change and I feel that this music is the most dynamic and honest that we’ve ever written. I feel a sense of freedom and am completely reinvigorated and even anxious (in a good way) to be a part of something that pulls influence from so many directions . Each member brings a unique set of talent and tools. It’s quite frankly some of the best music we’ve ever written. Organic, honest, and true.”

Guitarist, Ahrue Luster adds, “I’m more excited about Lions at the Gate than anything that I’ve been a part of since I started my musical career.”

Hard rockers ROYALTY KULT have a new video out for “Enjoying The End” that has Doc Coyle guesting on some vibey guitar parts and some full bore, maximum shred later on in the tune. The catchy but song will stick in your head and features Joshua Michael’s memorable alt metal influenced, impassioned vocals. Fans of Soul Searching Sun-era LOA or Crossfade will eat this up. Incidentally the video was also directed by Ron from the band Opiate For The Masses (still have that cd in my car).

MUDVAYNE reunion!

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Monday, April 19, 2021 at 10:32 AM (PST)
They’re baaaaaaaaaaaack!

 

Groove/alt-metal fan types can thrill today as the long rumored and hoped for MUDVAYNE reunion becomes tangible fact!

Ryan was one of my favorite interviews years ago for Crusher Magazine and I saw the dudes destroy Ozzfest in Connecticut one year as a giant mud fight raged, one of the most memorable and intense live performances I ever saw at a large festival. Their odd aesthetic, intense musicianship and energy has been missed!

 

A cryptic message about evolving through shrooms (or something) was paired with some glitchy footage on the band’s Facebook.

And did I mention…show dates?!!

The brooding nu metal titans have announced that they’re indeed reuniting after a 12-year hiatus AND will be performing at all four Danny Wimmer Presents U.S. festivals in 2021

These symptoms suggested that our evolution, I suppose, from the animal kingdom into human kingdom itself was catalyzed or triggered by our encounter with these hallucinogenics, and… Yes, we are an ape with a symbiotic relationship to a mushroom, and that has given us self reflection, language, religion, and all the spectrum of effects that flow from these things And one can only wonder how these hallucinogens might effect our future evolution as well They have brought us to this point and as we make our relationship to them conscious, we may be able to take control of our future evolutionary path

 

~~ MudDvAyNe 2021 ~~
Inkcarceration
September 10 – 12

 

Aftershock
October 7 – 10

 

Louder Than Life

Welcome To Rockville
November 11 – 14

Mudvayne formed in 1996 and has sold over six million records worldwide, earning Gold certification for three albums (L.D. 50, The End Of All Things To Come, Lost and Found). The band is known for their sonic experimentation, innovative album art, face and body paint, masks and uniforms. Mudvayne is Chad Gray (vocals), Greg Tribbett (guitar, backing vocals), Matthew McDonough (drums, synthesizer) and Ryan Martinie (bass).

Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents recalls, “In our fan surveys, Mudvayne has consistently been one of the most requested bands – even though they weren’t an active band! We’ve been working for years to make this happen, so when I got the call that they’d finally take a meeting, [DWP Executive VP & Talent Buyer] Gary Spivack and I jumped at the chance to fly to Vegas. We sat down for dinner with Mudvayne, their lawyer Eric German, manager Diony Sepulveda and agent Ryan Harlacher – the band hadn’t even been in the same room together for 10 years – and pleaded our case for why the time was right for this to happen. We were hoping to announce this in 2020, we’re fortunate enough to be able to do it in 2021, and DWP is super pumped to have Mudvayne exclusively at all four of our festivals this year.”

The full list of Mudvayne performances at 2021 DWP festivals is as follows. Specific show dates and performance times will be announced later.

– Inkcarceration Music & Tattoo Festival, which takes place September 10-12 at Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio. Early bird passes are on sale now. Full lineup announcement coming Tuesday, April 20 at Noon ET.

– Louder Than Life, which takes place September 23-26, 2021 at Highland Festival Grounds at KY Expo Center in Louisville, Kentucky. Early bird passes are on sale now.

– Aftershock – revealed as the “mystery reunion band,” performing on Saturday, October 8 at Discovery Park in Sacramento, California. Weekend passes are sold out, but a very limited number of single day passes are still available.

– Welcome To Rockville, which takes place November 11-14 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. Early bird passes are on sale now.

Metal News: Good, Bad and Ugly (3/19/21)

Greetings and happy Snyder Cut weekend. To say that the new, proper version of Justice League is better is a massive understatement. It is nice to actually see the POC in the movie have actual meaningful and important arcs. And so much better action! Bravo! The other version was way too focus grouped out of a soul and is one example (like Rise Of Skywalker) where a shorter run time and weird editing choices actually hurt the film. Snyder’s cut is literally 1,000x better and it has been awesome to see people fighting for more out of loving something rather than hating things for once. DC and Warner Bros. would be fools if they don’t make this the official canon version. Cue Wonder Woman hype theme!

But anyhow, we are here to talk metal. Lots of SHITTY stuff going on from Jon Schaffer being denied bond (that part is good, just shitty that he is a MAGA insurrectionist dipshit) to Stephen Carpenter sounding delusional enough that he could join Schaffer in Iced Earth at this rate. 9/11 happened and it is insulting af to New Yorkers to claim otherwise. I literally played CBGB’s the week it reopened and can remember the relief and catharsis of fearful New Yorkers glad to be out doing something positive after so much pain palpably.
WTF is going on where these musicians like these dudes or John Dolmayan (personally doing his best to make sure people rebrand his group System Of A Clown despite the rest of the band’s noble social justice efforts) have been all over the world and have so many opportunities to be educated but instead become conspiracy nuts, unforgivably compare BLM to the KKK or in Carpenter’s case likely smoke so much weed they literally can’t differentiate reality anymore? It is a god damn shame. I loved all those bands a lot at different points. Same for Ministry who have announced a new tour with Helmet and Front Line Assembly (more of my all time faves, sadly) but I am pretty sure Wikipedia still lists Sin Quirin in the band Ministry with no restorative justice reckoning so that is a hard pass. Some people didn’t forget about the grooming stuff just cuz everyone got distracted by Covid the last year. Everyone go watch the Woody Allen doc (God, Allen is utter gaslighting scum, IMO) if you don’t think media can’t help or harm when it comes to sweeping things aside.

Sometimes “cancel culture” (a right wing seeded talking point to focus shift) is actually about accountability, folks. I know you all want to feel super defensive because people don’t want you to tweet ableist shit or be morons or rape apologists anymore, but can everyone fuck right off?

On an even more somber note, Hearts go out today to the Underoath camp who are dealing with the tragic death of of old school guitarist Corey Steger. Our condolences and prayers go out to his surviving family and friends. He was very young and it is terribly sad. May his memory continue to shine for all those who loved him.

Man, that is a lot of depressing stuff. Let’s get to some music.

THE EMBER, THE ASH has today released “Becoming the Eidolon”, the third single to be taken from their upcoming album, Fixation. Accompanying the track, THE EMBER, THE ASH has also shared a lyric video – continuing the album’s highly stylized visual aesthetic. Born as a solo project from a musical polymath known only as 鬼, THE EMBER, THE ASH straddles the gulf between textured metalcore and symphonic black metal – not the most common combination of sub-genres. Love how confidently the track barrels in from the top.

In death metal news…April 16th, Cannibal Corpse will release their fifteenth studio album, Violence Unimagined, via Metal Blade Records. Fans can read an exclusive interview with Cannibal Corpse about Violence Unimagined and more in the May 2021 issue of Decibel Magazine, which features the band on the cover. To purchase your copy online now, please visit: https://store.decibelmagazine.com/products/may-2021-199 – or pick up an issue at newsstands starting April 7th!

Super stoked to hear a large body of material with these guys featuring Erik Rutan!

“I think the most noticeable difference on this record will be the addition of Erik to the band. He wrote three full songs for the record, music and lyrics, and his song writing and guitar playing have added something new, and I think his musical style integrated into ours very well,” Alex Webster enthuses. This is not all that he brings to the band. “He’s a great friend of ours, so on a personal level, he’s been a perfect fit, as we knew he would be. Beyond that, he’s one of the hardest working people I know, in music or otherwise, and he maintains a high energy, positive demeanor in challenging situations where other people might go in a negative direction. This energy and great attitude rubs off on the rest of us as well. That’s really a perfect situation to have when you add someone to a band, or any kind of team: someone who’s great at what they do, and also inspires the people around them.”

Alternative metal underground forces of nature MY RUIN have released a new video for “Sacrosanctity” from their recent essential 40 track retrospective collection The Cathartic Collection. Massive, domineering grooves, a scorching guitar solo section and of course the can’t be replicated aggressive vocal stylings of Tairrie B. Murphy welcome the listener back to the world of the influential band. Man, I miss their intensity and unique sound compared to a lot of bands today who think they are so brutal but don’t have a similarly fiery spirit to put the musical connection over the top. The band remain unique, empaths overflowing with anger and creative passion, channeling impossible levels of feeling into a cyclone of sound.

“I met Mick Murphy on this day (February 5, 2000) at a party in the Hollywood Hills.
While sitting on a purple couch talking about music we felt a connection and I knew in that moment he would one day be my husband but first, he became my guitarist & musical partner in My Ruin. The rest is our rock story.
From the moment we met it was magick. We were drawn to each other the same way we were drawn to the music we have created together over the last two decades.
For some our music has been hellfire, for others holy water but for us, it has always been cathartic and something we consider sacrosanct.
 
On Christmas Eve 2020, Mick & I celebrated our 12 year wedding anniversary.
To commemorate our 20th anniversary and celebrate the music we have made in My Ruin,
we wanted to release something timeless, in loving memory for those who have followed us on our musical journey since the beginning and for those who may discover us at a later date…
Over the years we have been told how much our music has meant to so many and this has always meant so much to us.
As an underground band, we have no mainstream, radio friendly greatest hits but we have made music that connects,
resonates and offers solace with its catharsis to those who need it. Including us.
 
“The Cathartic Collection” is a set of 36 songs which we have remastered and thoughtfully curated into 3 chapters from our extensive discography spanning our 9-album history in My Ruin.
Each 12-song chapter represents 3 albums and is introduced by its own spoken word interlude.
 
Our magnum opus begins with a new and a final song which we recorded at our home studio in Knoxville, Tennessee during the pandemic in 2020. “Sacrosanctity” is a poetically passionate, raw throated and relentless 6-minute metallic lament meant to represent our band, past to present…”

Happy Friday, weirdos. I am still laughing from all the people on Twitter who thought that Pat Smear during the Foo Fighters inauguration performance was actually Obama. Can you imagine how crazy that must’ve seemed to them? Imagine the past four years he was just quietly biding his time and learning to shred on “Times Like These” to troll Trump with a superior inauguration for his pal Biden.

Anyway, here we are in the great big aftermath or messy diaper left behind from the Trump fiasco. Seems like a great time to get excited about some new music.

Tomahawk — the rock band featuring Duane Denison (The Jesus Lizard, Unsemble), Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Fantomas), Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, etc.) and John Stanier (ex-Helmet, Battles) — are back with their first full-length album in eight years, titled Tonic Immobility and set to arrive on March 26 through Ipecac Recordings.

I had just recently busted out their debut and have been driving around frequently listening to that or Belly’s Star at like 6am as a good indicator of my daily mood, lol. So glad I have actually seen them live a few times and that the project isn’t dead in the water. The new Bungle line-up is certainly a supergroup but this one maybe even more so for snobs like me, haha. Stanier!!!

“Tonic Immobility could just be something in the air we’re feeling,” says Denison. “It’s been a rough year between the pandemic and everything else. A lot of people feel somewhat powerless and stuck as they’re not able to make a move without second guessing themselves or worrying about the outcomes. For as much as the record possibly reflects that, it’s also an escape from the realities of the world. We’re not wallowing in negativity or getting political. For me, rock has always been an alternate reality to everything else. I feel like this is yet another example.”

Interesting. Perhaps a strange, psychic cousin to DEP’s Option Paralysis?

The lead single can be heard below now and sounds as them as you’d expect.

The cognitive dissonance of seeing Maga morons dance to YMCA has finally been topped as Tom Morello from RATM/Prophets Of Rage/Audioslave fame shared a deeply absurd and sad video of blue balls matters advocates dancing to Rage’s classic “Killing In The Name”. Did these absolute fucking dipshits not realize it is an anti racist cop anthem? They probably heard the part about those working forces burning crosses and thought ,”Cool! We Stan that! MAGA! A storm is coming!”

Thank God black voters overwhelmingly voted against Trump and helped topple this utter shitstain on Amerkkkan history. You can hold blue accountable and move the dial further left. That is not possible with the GOP. They constantly try to surpress black votes and downplay the Southern Strategy they implemented for decades to demonize blacks. They made a climate in America that made it impossible to even be elected in the USA as a Democrat unless you appeared ‘tough on crime’ too, for decades. Which thankfully many Dems now regret pandering too because it helped hurt people. The GOP also act like Dems think no minorites are allowed to be “free thinkers” rather than the fact that it is just super depressing to see them get gaslit and swindled.

GOP willingly cheer for Russian intrusions into elections then have the gall to have white privileged morons like the very Anchorman named Buck Sexton claim the DEMS did voter fraud? As if there isn’t already bi-partisan observation of the polls, always! And spare me your Dominion blue vote machine conspiracies. Why didn’t we win the Senate outright then? Make it make sense. And none of you cared about, say, Jeb Bush or GOP voter suppression before this election, I notice.

You are the same clowns who think white cis males haven’t been centered in all of modern history, the same motherfuckers who would hear “Down Rodeo” and be like ,”what’s wrong with not seeing a brown skin man since grandma bought one?”

Just because he slurred like a drunken wrestling fan doesn’t mean DONALD TRUMP was ever populist! He is a gilded, failed conman who grifted the country out of hundreds of millions of dollars and tried to destroy our sacred institutions and gaslight the fight against white supremacy and paint ANTI FASCISM as bad!

WELCOME BACK TO REALITY. Here’s a cold blue dousing. Biden won by the biggest general margin ever and yeah a lot of Dems mailed in votes cuz we didn’t want super spreader parties like you Rona Romancing White Supremacists. If we got rid of the electoral college we wouldn’t have these scary moments nearly as often. Reproductive rights wouldn’t always be on the chopping block.

Voting DOES matter. Look at Georgia. We can’t burn down the entire system in one day and not have countless marginalized people hurt in the process. We can reform and coalition build.

And for the left, stay vigilant and keep moving things more progressive. Stay active and keep voting to get progress made in local elections. And above all call out disinfo when you see it perpetuated and make MAGA types feel the social consequences. I don’t mean cancel everyone without trying to educate but if it is hopeless it is not just “cancelling”, it is called not having to do permanent emotional labor for idiots who can’t grasp the bare bone structures of human history despite more access to information than ever before. Some of them are just gullible bigots!

DESTROY PLANETS release “Burn In Hell” video

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Sunday, November 1, 2020 at 1:29 AM (PST)

Destroy Planets have released an alt metal sledgehammer of a track that rotates between bratty rap-esque chants and rumbling deathcore lows from vocalist Tanya over syncopated, dialed-up aggression from the band.

“This song means different things to us. Tanya composed the lyrics and to her the song is about betrayal and being able to move forward dealing with the struggles betrayal presents. Other band members feel the lyrics can represent two halves of the same person having an internal conflict or that there are two people where one person is living a fake lie and the other person is perhaps trying to escape this. The whole feel of the song could be seen as what goes around comes around or struggling with demons in your past that you can not escape from.”- Destroy Planets

London based trap metal artist Mimi Barks has released a new video for attitude-filled fresh track “11.PLAGUE/666”. Fans of Concrete Dream, Otep, Killvein, Hollywood Undead and  Iggy Azalea might feel this new rager. Some of you might remember her Enter The Void EP from last year turning heads.
