As the Slayer-esque “God Hates Us All” sounding intro takes place….you get ready for the oncoming onslaught as Revocation tears out of the gates at the start of the album. Going from 0-60 in 1 second, the band rips into a bad ass yet semi-familiar riff and the drumming goes on like mad. Yes, it’s finally here, a new Revocation full length album!
Sean Parker threw a massive ultra expensive ass wedding in some forest and made all of his guests wear Tolkien inspired costumes to the ceremony. That’s not all, Lars Ulrich, the guy who was in that band who tried to destroy Napster, was there.
Scale The Summit have become one of my personal favorite instrumental progressive bands as they write song after song of epic beauty. Here is a studio video of them recording/tracking for their new album, “The Migration”.
If you don’t believe me on the epic beauty part, buy their last album, The Collective, for just $6.99! You won’t regret it!
Yes, it’s true. The Metallica crew has their entire catalog on Spotify now. Times are a changin’ and Metallica realizes this and now you can stream Metallica 24/7 for absolutely FREE. Purchase the “Premium” package though to stream St. Anger on your iPhone. I suggest playing it over the built in speaker and let the entire bus enjoy the album with you! You’ll be an absolute hit!
Metallica took over the Voodoo Music + Art Festival for Green Day but they didn’t let those die hard dookie fans down. James Hetfield said some nice things about Green Day and began to play some “American Idiot” for the fans. Good sports all around. Enjoy the video after the jump.
Visit Metallica’s website to download the three songs: Creeping Death, Hell and Back & The Call of Ktulu. These were recorded during the bands soundcheck at the Orion Fest earlier this year. The site states:
Special 3-song soundcheck recorded the day before the big Orion Music + More festival.
Since this was a loose rehearsal, James did not sing the first verse of “Creeping Death” as he was walking around the catwalk along the Snake Pit surveying the grounds while playing guitar.
“For Whom the Bell Tolls”
“Ride the Lightning”
“The Memory Remains”
“Wherever I May Roam”
“Sad But True”
“Welcome Home (Sanitarium)”
“…And Justice for All”
“Fade to Black”
“Master of Puppets”
“Nothing Else Matters”
“Hit the Lights”
“Seek & Destroy”
Besides the song Cyanide, this is a really good set list. I would have chosen a couple more or swapped some around but this is a solid set of songs. Plenty of anthems, shit to sing along to and of course plenty of awesome riffs to enjoy.
It’s not even the fact that Cyanide is a truly bad song, it’s just if they wanted to include a Death Magnetic track they should have gone with The Unforgiven III or The Day That Never Comes. I guess it really doesn’t matter since each song is roughly even in terms of how good they are on that album. Not one song is truly better than the next, but those two I mentioned were my favorites on the album. Oh well, can’t wait to see this movie….how good can a 3-D metal show possibly be? We’ll find out soon enough.
Many birthday’s today to some of the biggest names in metal. Yes, Fred Durst is metal, he packs a motherfuckin’ chainsaw and will skin your ass raw. That’s some blood-tastic lyric writing right there. H.P. Lovecraft may not have been metal, but his work has spawned many fine songs from many different bands over the past 20-30 years. Also, we all know Dimebag is metal…the dude kept metal alive with his riffs, leads and amazing tone while many people went “grunge”. Happy Birthday to Dimebag Darrell, H.P. Lovecraft and Fred Durst!!!! Listen to some Pantera, some Lovecraft influenced shit (Cradle of Filth, Metallica & Nile) and some Limp Bizkit.
I know many people do not care for Limp Bizkit, but they did put out some decent tunes. Some still good to this day. They blew up for a reason, they had some good songs.
