DRUNK DAD Ripper Killer – releases July 1st, 2014, via Eolian Empire.

DRUNK DAD – When I first heard Drunk Dad’s Morbid Reality EP, I was very happy. Why you query? Answer: Drunk Dad plays Noise Rock and experiments with their sound like it’s the night before doomsday, while giving little or no regard about what others will say about the end result. Drunk Dad has their own terminology for their sound and they call it: Fuck You All Wave.

Make no mistake, Drunk Dad can and will shock you into embracing their music. Maybe. It’s weird how it happened to me. The mixture of several genres of non-mainstream, apocalyptic underground goodness is what Drunk Dad creates and they do it superbly, in my Metal opinion. I sometimes wonder to myself, would Noise be the genre that I would pursue If I wanted to start a band? Just listening to Drunk Dad seems to calm my nerves. After listening to Ripper Killer, I feel as though I took a hammer to an aluminum garbage can and now everything is cool.

Drunk Dad

Ripper Killer is Drunk Dad’s first long play and I see it being the launching pad of this Portland, Oregon ensemble. Drunk Dad needs to play Ripper Killer in its entirety at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, just to shut the mouths of and piss off all those plastic millionaire/billionaire dorks that get all the free corporate seats. I’m serious. The overall sound that is Ripper Killer just has to appeal to a cross-section of Punk, Sludge, Hardcore and Experimental fans. If you dig Mr. Bungle and/or the Melvins, you are in for a sonic treat with Drunk Dad. Yup.

As a past student of Art History, I’ve been trained to look beyond the first impression and explore the many inner cavities of the visual creation. With that said, the cover art (or photo if you will) of Drunk Dad’s Ripper Killer, (see atop post), exposes light years of relevance to what is happening in our world today. Albeit shocking to look at, the cover art does symbolize the death that is in our hourly news; whether it’s carnage from a madman firing off a gun in public, wars, cruelty to any life form or even an oil spill from an ocean tanker.

Relating the cover art of Ripper Killer to Drunk Dad’s music just seems to fit; for if the photo turns off the fancy and out-of-touch mainstream, then surely the music heard within will too. Sometimes one picture is truly worth a thousand words. That’s my interpretation, anyways. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Band Announces Record Release Shows Featuring Special Guests

________________________

Danish instrumental Noise Rock duo, FOSSILS, is ready to distribute their second album — the pounding, utterly intense, Flesh Hammer, set for worldwide disbursement on March 3rd via Indisciplinarian.

Consisting of ten precise, noisy and ever-entertaining no-bullshit pieces of music in twenty minutes, FOSSILS‘ succinctly pulverizing Flesh Hammer was created by a band that has refined their trademarks of thunderous riffs and stomping grooves side-by-side with complex rhythms, pouring out their unique, stripped-down brand of instrumental, noisy rock firmly rooted in punk, metal and hardcore. Flesh Hammer was produced by Danish sound-enigma Q (Beta Satan, Entombed), and will see worldwide release via digital download as well as 12″ LP limited to 300 copies.

Preorders for the vinyl are now live; internationally order direct from the Indisciplinarian web shop HERE, while Earsplit Distro is carrying the LP for North America with preorders available HERE.

In-studio videos of FOSSILS‘ recording sessions, featuring actual live takes and mixes found onFlesh Hammer, have been leaked out over the past several weeks. So far five full tracks have been released, including, “Critical Mass,” “Cat Stalker,” “Stun,” “Spamtastic” and “Crack Horse.”

The release Flesh Hammer will be celebrated with two Danish release shows, at Radar in Aarhus on February 28th and at Beta in Copenhagen, on March 1st. In the unconventional spirit of FOSSILS, these will not simply be “typical” release shows with the usual canapés and support bands, but instead an overload of awesome musical guests will be involved in each of the performances, not at least at the Aarhus gig where the program is quite overwhelming. Aarhus will see the resurrection of FOSSILS‘ old band, the local high-octane rock n’ roll heroes, Studson playing a sweet set of oldies but goodies. Then FOSSILS will mutate into their own doom version, Slissof, covering an old Cola Freaks-classic with several guests from Cola Freaks, Rising and Studson. Hereafter, FOSSILS will perform Flesh Hammer from beginning to end, and finally the dynamic duo concludes the show when joined by numerous vocalists such as Jacob Bredahl (The Kandidate, ex-HateSphere) and Kim Kix (Powersolo) who will interpret various FOSSILS compositions from earlier releases. In Copenhagen FOSSILS will play a more straight-up set and special guests will be the aforementioned Studson, and a second band yet to be announced.

FOSSILS Flesh Hammer Record Release Shows:

2/28/2014 Beta – Copenhagen, Denmark

3/01/2014 Radar – Arhaus, Denmark

DRUNK DAD – Noise/Sludge Quartet’s EP Is The Eolian Empire’s Next Conquest

Posted in experimental rock, grindcore, Music, noise rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 30, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Eolian Empire Compilation - promo cover - 2013

In a constant barrage of new noise from Portland-based D.I.Y. noisemongers Eolian Empire, the label’s next conquest comes by way of the filthifying new 12” from local metalworkers DRUNK DAD.

If they weren’t such dirty fuckers they’d be one of the town’s shining success stories of unrelenting hard work and dedication: in a surprisingly short time DRUNK DAD went from favorite-band-shirts-on-their-hearts-on-their-sleeves to a unique and dynamic fusion of the heavy, the noisy, and the aggro, with a healthy dose of high drama, as they consistently churn out some of the most devastating live sets Portland has seen in years. Complex but in-your-face arrangements, push-pull duel-guitar interplay, searing behind-the-head leads, heavy motherfucking bass, and hard-hitting, tight, technical traps with dynamic, disturbing vocals to hold it all together evolves to ethical scumbaggery at its finest.

Morbid Reality, the first vinyl release from Portlandian shitstarters DRUNK DAD, merges off-kilter sludge/noise the Pacific Northwest perpetuates so well into a drugged-out but aggro vibe; elements of scathing crust-ish degenerate punk brutality of El Dopa or Dystopia are cold-filtered with slow-motion acerbic sludge basslines and noxious riffage with a post-Melvins experimental vibe.

Eolian Empire will drop the four-song Morbid Reality via 12” vinyl and digital download on June 11th. In the meantime, DRUNK DAD were recently caught intoxicating the public via Eolian’s massive KEEP OUR HEADS Portland underground compilation alongside twenty-five more of the city’s finest filthriffing acts. Get wrecked with their pungent “S.O.U.” anthem from the comp RIGHT HERE.

Following their spot on one of the Eolian Empire KEEP OUR HEADS record release shows over the weekend, DRUNK DAD have the coolers loaded with frothy ammo as they plan on stumbling south across California this week, with shows booked in Eureka, Oakland and a happy-hour double in San Francisco. They also just booked a hometown record release show at Portland’s Ash Street Saloon with labelmates Diesto on June 7th, with much more public drunkenness to be had in the Summer months.

BELLIGERATOR “Robot Prostitute” – New Music Video From Noise Rock Trio Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Music, noise rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on March 6, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Belligerator - large logo - red & black

BELLIGERATOR is a Rock band based out of Sixth Street in San Francisco, CA. and have recently gotten in touch with me regarding their new music video: Robot Prostitute. Hell, I liked the song and video so much that I am declaring it as: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day! Metal be thy name.

Here is what guitarist/vocalist Jim had to say about Robot Prostitute and his band:

“The video was produced and directed by filmmaker David Weber and shot in San Francisco’s SOMA neighborhood in December, 2012. The inspiration for the video came from wanting to blend a horror movie aesthetic with a slightly humorous theme, while portraying a fictionalized version of the darker side of life on the streets in the neighborhood surrounding our rehearsal studio.”

Belligerator’s heavy blend of progressive and punk draws upon influences ranging from the Jesus Lizard to Big Black to the Dead Kennedys, while maintaining a unique and powerful sound. Our first full-length album came out in 2011, entitled “Next Year’s Music.”

Listen to and watch Robot Prostitute below! Whoa!
