5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

TANK – The title track, from TANKS’s 2012 War Nation album boasts a Melodic Metal ride that sends me off into Metal La-la land. A grand Classic Metal sound and vibe TANK has carried on, with this entire War Nation album! The timeless vocals of the legendary Doogie White soars on this title track and throughout this album, truly one of his finest Metal performances on his impressive Metal resume. In my Metal opinion.

Guitarists Mick Tucker and Cliff Evans are a powerhouse duo for my ears to savor! If this War Nation album had been released back in the mid to late 80’s, I firmly believe (nearly) every Metalhead alive would have owned and bragged about it. No matter how I slice or dice it, this 2012 version of TANK thrills me and I make no excuses for being psyched-out by it all. Crank up War Nation and hail Metal! Metal be thy name. – Stone

Track Listing: War Nation, Song Of The Dead, Hammer And Nails, Don’t Dream In The Dark, Grace Of God, Dreamer, Justice For All, Wings Of Heaven, State Of The Union, Hard Road, War Machine (live bonus track), Feast Of The Devil (live bonus track), W.M.L.A. (acoustic version/bonus track)

TANK – War Nation Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

REVOCATION “Teratogenesis” – A Scion A/V Presents EP From 2012 You MUST Know About!

Revocation - Teratogenesis - EP - cover promo!

5 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

REVOCATION – I remember posting the press release, regarding this tidy 5 song EP, Teratogenesis, from Boston’s REVOCATION. Back on September 25th, 2012, this Metal gem was released for free, via Scion A/V Presents. Scion A/V routinely offers free downloads of Metal EP’s; therefore I declare Scion A/V kicks 100% Metal ass. This great company supports Metal. ‘Nuff said about that.

Of the 5 songs on this EP, my 2 favorite songs on Teratogenesis are Maniacally Unleashed and Bound By Desire. Plus, there are a TON of Metal grooves to be heard and enjoyed from the title track. Whoa! Please note that ALL 5 songs on this EP are some of the best Metal work that REVOCATION has ever done! I’m not shitting about that. If you’re not familiar with REVOCATION, their brand of Metal is Thrash, in the Death Thrash vein and they play it extremely well; just like Arizona’s rabid Hemoptysis.

The overall Metal wall-of-sound is so damn blistering fine from this EP! This is guitar driven Death Thrash that is, for me, eye-popping! If you’re looking for Metal intensity, that’ll leave you feeling as though you’ve smoked and inhaled potent Metal bliss, then Teratogenesis from REVOCATION is it. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Bloodbound - In The Name Of Metal - promo cover pic - 2012

5 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

BLOODBOUND are a Power Metal band from Bollnäs, Sweden and I’ll guarantee their 2012 album, In The Name Of Metal, will kick your Metal lovin’ ass into the week after next. This insane fabulous album was released via AFM Records. Yup, the album cover artwork tells you immediately, that this Bloodbound album is whiz-bang.

When it comes to guitar driven Power Metal, Bloodbound are an unstoppable force. Unreal. Are Metal anthems what you crave? Bloodbound will have you lighting a torch and marching down main street to city hall at midnight. In The Name Of Metal and Metalheads Unite are two Metal anthems that speaks for our Metal community. Metal victory doesn’t await us, my fellow Metal brethren, the Metal victory is here and heard throughout this Bloodbound album! All the posers that aren’t still getting all this may now leave. Get out.

Bloodbound - band logo - red - white - #112

Lead vocalist Patrik Johansson is a pure talent, with a splendid touch of influence from Metal legends as Kai Hansen, Andi Deris and Bruce Dickinson. There’s even an obvious vocal influence of the legendary Udo Dirkschneider that I hear on Monstermind. I honestly put Patrik Johansson on a high Metal pedestal; for his range and sporadic falsetto are plenty impressive, to me. Bloodbound easily commands me to really feel the outpouring of jubilant Metal that they play so incredibly well, on In The Name Of Metal.

In The Name Of Metal never lets up on its powerful Metal momentum, from beginning to end it’s a Metal thrill! My favorite song is Black Devil, however, this entire album is relentless with its mission of in-your-face Power Metal. Bloodbound are just a complete Metal band and they’ve easily demonstrated to me their out-and-out power! Support Bloodbound, buy this album and thank me in the Metal future. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, stoner metal with tags , , , , , on July 25, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Orange Goblin - 2013 North American Tour - promo flyer

Britain’s premier Stoner Metal band ORANGE GOBLIN will return to perform at venues throughout North America this Autumn. Following the band’s huge success earlier this year as main support for Clutch on their Earth Rocker North American tour, the Brits return for a full headlining run. Kicking off in New Orleans on September 27, the band will visit 38 cities around the United States and Canada before concluding in Nashville on November 9. Support on the tour will come from Holy Grail and Lazer/Wulf.

The trek finds ORANGE GOBLIN continuing a year-long commitment to performances in support of their latest studio album, A Eulogy For the Damned (2012), and first live CD/DVD released earlier this year. This rigorous schedule has seen them perform in over 25 countries across the globe, ensuring that the band is firing on all cylinders and maintaining their reputation as one of the fiercest and most exciting live acts on the planet! In fact, Clutch’s own Neil Fallon was recently seen on That Metal Show wearing an ORANGE GOBLIN shirt and proclaiming them to be one of his favorite bands!

The package’s DVD includes the official Tom Cronin directed videos for “Red Tide Rising” and “Acid Trial,” the latter courtesy of Scion A/V. It further includes the Matt Chance directed “Red Tide Rising” documentary and Gaetan Chataigner directed “Highway to Hellfest” documentary. Art and design was provided by Jimbob Isaac under the direction of vocalist Ben Ward.

The live album follows the release of A Eulogy For The Damned, now ORANGE GOBLIN’s highest selling album in North America. Produced by Jamie Dodd and mastered by two-time Grammy-nominated engineer Andy Jackson (Pink Floyd), the album entered the UK charts at position 96 and for the US landed on Billboard Magazine’s Heat Seekers chart at position 38.
