BRUCE LAMONT “Feral Songs For The Epic Decline” – Transcends Rock Music’s Complacency

Posted in ambient music, avant-garde music, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, industrial rock, metal music, progressive rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 28, 2010 by Metal Odyssey

BRUCE LAMONT – Upon my very first listen to Feral Songs For The Epic Decline,  I realized quickly that Bruce Lamont has created music that is a soundtrack to the inner Metal mind. What is the inner Metal mind you query? Why, it is all of the thoughts, sounds and sensory subtleties that just magically make their unexpected visit, (within my own inner Metal mind), during the course of a day… or two. You see, what Bruce Lamont has created here, is Experimental meets Industrial, coalescing with the progressive and tribal, while colliding with drifting atmospherics… the end result being Bruce’s honest and credible interpretation of what’s likely his real music ideal.

If there is a defining constant I hear throughout Feral Songs For The Epic Decline, it is Bruce’s interpretation of combining so many musical elements and styles together and making them come to a boil with an almost late 70’s progressive trip, while adhering to relevance. I do sense a keen sense of hard versus heavy balance, in regards to what Bruce Lamont has created here, due to my feeling and hearing some conscious restraint of venturing too far into the absolute heavy realm. Refraining from total heaviness comes across smoothly within his music, a more progressive approach provides the balance of musical sounds Bruce so convincingly conveys.

What Bruce Lamont seems to thrive on, is pulling music from across the spectrum, then he takes musical matters into his own imaginative hands and creates unique songs that tantalize with their modernistic genius. Throughout this eclectically put together album of avant-garde amassment, Bruce Lamont stays true to his varied style of putting a song together… the listener should expect the unexpected. Just when there are dreamy moments of Pink Floydian progressive space circulating in The Book Of The Law, don’t be surprised to hear next, a futuristic Wild West sound which connects to an extreme psychosis encounter on Deconstructing Self Destruction.

One Who Stands On The Earth is this album’s epic, at 11:44 long. Bruce’s baritone voice along with his acoustic guitar and background Industrial fuzz combines for a continuum of building this song from it’s foundation. Bruce lends some mysterious chanting, which lends way to his saxophone building a melancholic passage with the assistance of tribal background chants. These background tribal chants give way to and combine with rhythmic tribal drum beats, bringing One Who Stands On The Earth to it’s finish, with a synthetic whirling sound being the final exclamation point. The presence of these sounds, brings about an open atmosphere of near exhilaration.

It is the all encompassing manner of disorder by intention, that makes Bruce Lamont’s songs enthrall me to such a high level of admiration. Where else can one hear or who else can make a saxophone coexist so brilliantly, amidst a flurry of Industrial sounds and an extra-terrestrial musical climate as Bruce accomplishes on Disgruntled Employer? Extraordinary is this song with the inclusion of foggy tribal chants, generating a feeling of what an out of body experience might just feel like.

If you have an open-mindedness of listening to a broad based musical puzzle being put together, with a legion of nuances on steroids, then Feral Songs For The Epic Decline is unquestionably an album for you to absorb. Bruce Lamont created each song, sings and plays all the instruments heard on this album, being his first full length. What more could I appreciate from a solo artist, with such intense vision, than Bruce Lamont?

I’m heralding Bruce Lamont and his album Feral Songs For The Epic Decline, especially during an era when the Rock Music Industry is stagnating from complacency. Bruce Lamont’s musical style is inconsistent with the mainstream norm, obliterating a false mindset that artistic music ingenuity is no longer in vogue. This is my reasoning for admiring what Bruce Lamont has achieved here, which invigorates me to recommend Feral Songs For The Epic Decline to any and all open minded fans of Rock, Progressive and Ambient Music.

* Bruce Lamont’s associated bands are: Yakuza, Circle of Animals and Led Zeppelin 2.

* Feral Songs For The Epic Decline will be released on January 25, 2011, on At A Loss Recordings.

Metal Odyssey’s Top Ten Songs Of 2010 And #1 Music Video!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal songs, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 24, 2010 by Metal Odyssey

METAL ODYSSEY’S TOP TEN SONGS OF 2010 – Every year, countless new Metal and Hard Rock albums are released. With an untold number of original songs, as well there being cover songs being released too, it is not humanly possible to hear them all. I have compiled a list of Top Ten Songs Of 2010, that represent THE songs that psyched-me-out of my Metal mind, throughout this past year and will continue to do so for many Metal moons to come. Quality musicianship, songwriting and vocals are all inclusive on these songs listed below, being heard by my attentive Metal ears. These art ten songs from 2010 that I will never forget for the rest of my Metal lovin’ life!

#10

MORPHINE KILLER – Throw It All Away

To listen to Throw It All Away, just click on that magnificent box above. Morphine Killer is Brandon Ortiz aka Eski and Belle Roka. Is it the music that Eski plays or the vocals of Belle that made this song an instantly memorable song for me? It’s BOTH. With a Modern Metal backbone meets Classic Rock accessibility, Throw It All Away is a song I want the world to hear. When a song can float above a variety of Rock genres like this one can and ROCK so damn steady as it does, it makes my Metal Odyssey Top Ten Songs Of 2010 list without a Metal hiccup. Metal Odyssey is handing out a #1 Female Heavy Rock vocal Performance for 2010… it’s Belle Roka with Throw It All Away. Morphine Killer has been my diamond in the rough for 2010.

#9

HIGH ON FIRE – Frost Hammer

On August 29, 2010, I blabbed away about how Metal terrific Frost Hammer is. You can read about it for yourself by clicking on the header below! Matt Pike and his band High On Fire are the epitome of what Metal should sound like when you are flipping off the music charts. You’ll never find glitz or glam with these guys, just straight up Stoner Metal meets Rock ‘N’ Roll, with potent doses of landscape rippling sound, blasting from this now legendary three piece.

On August 29, 2010, I wrote about how much I really dig Frost Hammer. (I actually really dig the entire Snakes for the Divine album as well). Click the link below to read more about it!

HIGH ON FIRE “FROST HAMMER” – A METAL SONG FOR THE METAL AGES

#8

AVENGED SEVENFOLD – Nightmare

The vocals of M. Shadows are laced with emotional realism that can’t be manufactured. While I listen to this song, the feeling of being overwhelmed by the relentlessly driving up-tempo and power of this A7X band occurs, from the opening note to the very last one. Every time I listen to thisNightmare song, the psyche-me-out meter explodes within my Metal soul. I swear I can hear and feel this band’s courage melting over this entire song and I’m not bashful to admit this. A7X made an incredible song (and album as well) under extreme conditions, after losing their brother and drummer, Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan, to a tragically untimely passing on December 28, 2009.

What stands out to me, every time I listen to this song, is the transparent mood of victory amongst the overall musicianship, which seems to swirl itself around the more darker vibe of Nightmare’s overall theme. Each member of A7X plays with an inspired emotion on this song that carries on through the entire album. Nightmare is a word that can sum up what A7X has endured as a band of brothers, yet it’s also a magical song that has carried them to the top tier and front row of Modern Metal.

 

#7

ARMORED SAINT – Chilled

Armored Saint returned in a very fantastic way in 2010. Metal be thy name was I thrilled that Armored Saint did make a comeback… and they did so by making a kick ass album titled: La Raza. On April 19, 2010, I wrote exactly how this Armored Saint song makes me feel. Chilled will always be a lifetime favorite song of mine, it’s lyrical message of chilling out as you get older hits home. Take the Metal plunge and read all about it by clicking on the header below!

ARMORED SAINT – “CHILLED” SONG FROM “LA RAZA” ALBUM CHILLS AND THRILLS MY METAL SOUL

#6

JON OLIVA’S PAIN – Death Rides A Black Horse

And on the eighth day, God created Jon Oliva. In all Metal seriousness, Jon Oliva is a man of music and his very own and real nightmare comes to life musically and lyrically, with Death Rides A Black Horse. Jon Oliva writing about his nightmares makes for incredible songs and Death Rides A Black Horse is as nightmarish as they come, in an epic and sensory stirring way. The keyboards are haunting and the dark mood of this song gives way to my very own, made up scary imagery. I embrace any song that entertains me like a horror novel or gives me the jitters like a nightmare, Death Rides A Black Horse is just that.

#5

KROKUS – Too Hot

The “classic” Krokus lineup from the One Vice At A Time album from 1982, returned in 2010 with a Hard Rockin’ mission statement called Hoodoo. I knew after my very first listen to the Hoodoo album that there were a few potential “Top Ten” song candidates… I dug this album that much. Too Hot became just that type of song for me all year, this song is hot from beginning to end. An infectious Hard Rock vibe I feel throughout Too Hot, without an ounce of letup. This Hard Rock vibe jumps straight out of Too Hot, reeling in all of the delectable Old School feelings of good times, partying till dawn and… just free spirited FUN.

#4

GAMMA RAY – To The Metal

HAIL HEAVY METAL! This is the Heavy Metal anthem that will forever remind me that this great genre is bigger than anything anyone could have ever imagined. Years may pass us by, economies shall fall, wars will be waged while we Metalhead’s age… only Metal always stands tall, has stood the test of time and never goes away. This song is about more than Heavy Metal, it’s about the cultural and social impact it has had upon us Metalheads through the decades, an F’n damn Metal phenomenon that can never be stopped, controlled or denied.

When I interviewed Kai Hansen (Gamma Ray’s lead vocalist & guitarist) earlier this year for HARD ROCK HIDEOUT, he likened Heavy Metal to that of a dragon… he explained once you cut the head off a dragon, it keeps on growing more heads. Well put, Kai… and well done with your legendary Power Metal band – Gamma Ray!

On July 19, 2010, I wrote about this powerful Heavy Metal anthem – To The Metal. Read about it if you like, by clicking the header below!

GAMMA RAY “TO THE METAL” – A HEAVY METAL ANTHEM, AN INSTANT SONG CLASSIC

#3

KOPEK – Love Is Dead

If there is that young band that is going to eventually take over the Rock and Hard Rock world, KOPEK is that bandMetal as my witness, it’s just a matter of time. Don’t say Stone never warned you either. When a three piece can Rock the daylights out of me, while delivering a Hard Rockin’ sound that is as refreshing as an iced pint of beer, that band deserves any and all the accolades I can Metal muster. KOPEK is that band. Take a look and listen to Love Is Dead by clicking that cool box below… you’ll likely understand what I mean.

Oh, while I’m at it, why beat around the Metal bush…

Love Is Dead is Metal Odyssey’s #1 Music Video Of 2010!


#2

SCORPIONS – Raised On Rock

2010 was the year when the unreal legendary Scorpions announced their embarking on a final, three year tour. The Scorpions are retiring. It can’t be! Alas, the Metal truth sometimes is hard to swallow. I, along with Scott Coverdale set forth on our Metal journey this past June, of 2010, to the M3 Rock Festival, (Columbia, Maryland), to see the Scorpions off. On June 27, 2010, I posted about the Scorpions headlining the 2010 M3 Rock Festival. You can read about how I felt, seeing and experiencing the Scorpions at the 2010 M3 Rock Festival by clicking the large header below!

SCORPIONS AT M3 ROCK FESTIVAL 2010 – THANK YOU SCORPS!!

Raised On Rock is not just a song that my 80’s generation can relate to, this is a song that any Rock generation can and should relate to. Admittedly, I am instantly psyched out of my Metal mind, while my face gets flushed and my arms become covered with ostrich bumps each time I listen to Raised On Rock. With these types of emotional and physical reactions I experience from Raised On Rock… there really is nuthin’ else left to say, except…

THANK YOU SCORPIONS!


#1

HALFORD – Thunder And Lightning

Thunder And Lightning from HALFORD  is my #1 song of 2010! Music should speak to you and make you feel good… and sometimes invincible. HALFORD makes me feel invincible with Thunder And Lightning, I’m not going to deny it, I will just accept it with Metal glee. Everyone knows, when a song “hits” you that certain way, it just feels like it was written and recorded especially for you. This is exactly how Thunder And Lightning “hits me”.

Everything that I have ever loved about Heavy Metal, seems to be woven into Thunder And Lightning. From the strong vocals of Rob Halford, to the melodic and yet still heavy guitar leads of Roy Z., with Metal Mike Chlasciak unleashing the rhythmic balance from his axe, the tempo never subsides from it’s elevated high.  Oh, there is a kick ass guitar solo too from Roy Z. and it gives me the Metal chills. Mike Davis on bass and Bobby Jarzombek on drums make the woofers on my home stereo speakers quake to the Metal limit. The chorus is mind blowing and Metal riveting. Even the fade out on this song is perfect. F’n Old School.

Being track #10 on the new HALFORD album, Made Of Metal is without question worth the wait as I listen to this fabulous album. Then again, I can’t count the number of times I select only this song to listen to, sometimes twenty times in a row! I’m not kidding. Rob Halford, otherwise known as The Metal God, is at his vintage best on vocals, with his band surrounding him with an awesome display of pure Metal power. When a song puts me on an ultra-maximum Metal high, like Thunder And Lightning does, it gets picked as #1. Metal be thy name.

On October 6, 2010, I posted a complete album review on HALFORD IV Made Of Metal, you can check it out by clicking the header below!

HALFORD IV “MADE OF METAL” – THE METAL GOD… Has Returned With A Vengeance!

LONG LIVE METAL.
