5 METAL Fists Out Of 5!

Metal Fists 5 Metal Odyssey

PALMS – I approached this debut album from PALMS with every intention to be non-bias, due to my very high appreciation towards ISIS and Deftones. Before I heard even a single note from PALMS, I was convinced this album had to be good. I was wrong. This debut album from PALMS is spectacular! My long withdrawal of ISIS on permanent hiatus is now over and Chino Moreno is lead vocalist! Who would ever imagine this? Not me.

Do not panic that there are (only) 6 songs on their debut; there exists 45 minutes and 37 seconds of atmospheric, melodic, captivating, ambient coated Rock meets Hard Rock bliss; with each song to savor for the next century or more! The lyrics fit these songs superbly. Any Rock connoisseur knows these guys don’t have to prove a thing to anyone regarding their talent, still, my God almighty have they pushed the envelope when it comes to expanding on the mood, energy and mystical experience of music.

PALMS is like ISIS meets Pink Floyd meets U2 meets the production savvy of Jeff Lynne and David Gilmour meets… well… PALMS are so keen on making their songs layered with musical surprises that it will take me another 100 listens or more to catch them all. I’ve listened to this PALMS debut so many times this Summer that it will forever be linked to this season by me.

I honestly cannot recommend this album more highly. ISIS and Deftones fans will (I believe) agree. For those on the fence, jump off and experience a diamond-studded musical journey with PALMS. Metal be thy name.

Los Angeles – Palms, the Los Angeles-based band featuring members of ISIS and Deftones, have posted an album trailer (see below) featuring music from their forthcoming, self-titled debut (June 25, Ipecac Recordings).

A variety of pre-order bundles have also been made available including limited edition vinyl (5 colors are available in 200 piece editions), t-shirts and posters.  The packages can be found via: http://www.bluecollardistro.com/categories.php?cPath=1657.

A digital pre-order from iTunes gives users immediate access to the song Tropics (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/palms/id644888681).

The band have also announced their first tour dates: a four-date west coast run this July with stops in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles and San Francisco:

July 10 – San Diego, CA @ Belly Up Tavern

July 11 – Santa Ana CA @ The Observatory

July 12 – Los Angeles, CA @ The Troubadour —– SOLD OUT

July 13 – San Francisco, CA @ Slim’s

Palms came together following the demise of ISIS, with Jeff Caxide (bass), Aaron Harris, (drums) and Clifford Meyer (keyboards/guitar) electing to continue playing music together.  “After a little time Jeff, Cliff, and I decided that it was insane that we all still lived here in Los Angeles and weren’t playing together,” Harris says. “It just sort of happened naturally, probably because we have been playing together for so long, and things started to come together. But we didn’t want to be instrumental: We wanted vocals. We just weren’t exactly sure who that would be at first.”  The band, knowing that Chino Moreno (Deftones) had been a fan of ISIS, thought he would be a great fit and he agreed.  “A chance to work with the guys from ISIS sounded like a lot of fun,” Moreno says, “I’ve always been into the atmospheric sounds they had created with that project and felt my sense of melody would meld well with theirs.”

Musicians From ISIS And DEFTONES Form New Band: PALMS

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 25, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Apr. 25, 2012 — Meet Palms, a newly formed Los Angeles based quartet featuring three former members of ISIS (Aaron Harris, Clifford Meyer and Jeff Caxide) with Deftones’ vocalist Chino Moreno.

“Clifford, Jeff and I started Palms a little over a year ago out of a desire to continue making music together after ISIS ended,” explained Harris. “Chino joined shortly after and our sound took shape from there. We’ve worked really hard on this first release and are excited for people to hear it. It’s nice to be back behind the drum kit, and with this line up.”

“Being a huge ISIS fan I’ve always dug the moods these dudes convey with their sound,” added Moreno. “I am excited to combine my sense of creativity with theirs and to have fun doing so.”

Palms’ debut album will be issued by ISIS’ former label, Ipecac Recordings, and is slated for a 2012 release with a release date to be announced soon. The album was recorded and mixed by Harris, and produced by Palms.

Palms is Jeff Caxide (bass/keyboards), Aaron Harris (drums), Clifford Meyer (guitar/keyboards) and Chino Moreno (vocals).
