An audio clip of an early, unmastered mix of the song “Tropics” was recently played by Moreno on his online Mixlr broadcast and went viral shortly thereafter.

Palms was recorded and mixed by Aaron Harris and produced by Palms. The band recently put up a splash page at Palmsband.com.

VOIVOD – “Target Earth” Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Voivod - Target Earth - promo cover pic!

VOIVODTarget Earth, is the 13th studio album from Progressive/Thrash Metal legends VOIVOD. Guitarist Daniel Chewy Mongrain meritoriously steps in for the late, legendary (and irreplaceable) Denis “Piggy” D’Amour and fits in perfectly with the entire world of unique Metal sound that only VOIVOD delivers. Co-founder and bass guitarist Jean-Yves Thériault appears once again on this (thoroughly memorable) VOIVOD album; with Jean’s last VOIVOD studio album contribution being 1991’s Angel Rat.

When a band of such influential status like VOIVOD sticks to their (musical) roots while avoiding any unnecessary reinvention of their own Metal wheel, grand things can happen. Target Earth is such a “grand thing” and I am overjoyed by both this album and VOIVOD’s admirable perseverance. With 2013 being the 30th Anniversary of VOIVOD, old school fans should be drooling over Target Earth. New fans of this Canadian national Metal treasure are surely being recruited into the VOIVOD realm, thanks in part to this band’s tour stops and Progressive/Thrash relevancy.

________________________________

I’ve always embraced the originality of VOIVOD, their blend of sound coupled with experimentation really has survived a bevy of “flavor of the month” genres over the decades; while their underground aura will never vanish, regardless of how popular they are in our Metal circles. As strange as this sounds, my 80’s VOIVOD collection of Metal has survived on none other than… cassettes. I’ll never part with them either, just as I’ll never part with Target Earth.

There’s always been that comfort food type of vibe I get from VOIVOD’s Metal and I’ll never be able to explain it away. Target Earth is not just a must album for 2013; it has earned my required status among Metal albums for 2013. Get into The VOD and thank me forever. Target Earth surely will be in my Top Twenty Metal Albums Of 2013 list; this new offering from VOIVOD is that beneficial to my Metal soul. Metal be thy name.

VOIVOD Target Earth was released on January 22nd, 2013, via Century Media.

Botanist IV - Mandragora - promo cover!

Botanist’s record is now available from The Flenser; housed in a hand assembled package with an insert and CD.

Order Now!

You can also stream and download the entire album from our bandcamp!

Stream/Download

Botanist, the unconventional one-man black metal band featuring vocals, drums, and hammered dulcimer instrumentation is gearing up to release a fourth album IV: Mandragora, on February 19th from experimental metal label The Flenser. Combining lyrical creativity and musical ingenuity, IV: Mandragora is a concept record on the alchemical creation of a mandrake and how the Botanist is instructed on raising an army of mandrakes to wipe out humanity.

The songs of Botanist are told from the perspective of the Botanist, a crazed man of science who lives in self-imposed exile, as far away from humanity and it’s crimes against nature. Existing amongst a sanctuary of fantasy and wonder, which he calls the Verdant Realm, he surrounds himself with plants and flowers, finding solace in the company of the natural world while envisioning the destruction of man. There, seated upon his throne of Veltheimia, the Botanist awaits the day when humans will either die or kill each other off, thus allowing plants to reclaim Earth in a green glory once more.

17/04/13 – Fonobar Club – Warsaw, Poland

19/04/13 – Blackland – Berlin, Germany

21/04/13 – Blue Hell Club – Budapest, Hungary

___________________________________

“We hope this year will be a year of firsts for the band and we are off and running in that regard already!” comments the band vocalist ArdChieftain O’Hagan. “We are more than pleased to return to Paris for Cernunnos Paganfest. For an indoor event, it captures the Pagan atmosphere more than any other Festival in terms of decor, entertainment and general vibe. If our reception is as rapturous as last time we will be equally as delighted.”

“It’s been a decade since we last visited the west of Ireland and we jumped at the chance of playing in Galway as part of the Seactain na Gaeilge [Irish language week] celebrations.”

Commenting on the bands turn to new lands ArdChieftain adds, “There is no better feeling than playing new places, making new friends and sampling new cultures, so finally visiting Poland, Austria and Hungary is something we are very excited about, and are equally as pleased to be returning to Berlin, where we get the chance this time to play a full length set.

We would have been pleased with just one Polish gig but to have two is a huge bonus. We get to, not only visit Warsaw, but also Zielona Góra and we are really looking forward to experiencing the notoriously crazy Polish Metal audiences.

After having several aborted attempts to play in Austria over the years, we finally get the chance with a show in Klein-Pöchlarn. We hope our Austrian fans enjoy our performance.

None of us has visited Hungary before, so to be able to play in such a beautiful and historic city as Budapest has got our collective pulse racing. We have heard nothing but praise for the Pagan/Folk Metal scene in Hungary so it will be amazing to experience it for ourselves.”
