PORTLAND-BASED BAND RETURN TO THE ROAD FOR FIRST 2014 U.S. OUTING

Scion Audio Visual presents Red Fang’s Spring tour, Situation: AWESOME!, the Portland band’s first Stateside outing in 2014. The one-month trek kicks off May 16 at Slim’s in San Francisco and includes a stop at Scion AV’s Rock Fest in Pomona on May 17.

As part of the Scion AV-sponsored tour, Red Fang will release a new single titled “The Meadows” in early May, with a limited edition 7-inch available along the tour. A video for the song will arrive during the Situation: AWESOME! tour.

Red Fang released Whales and Leeches in October, with the eleven-song album quickly becoming the band’s best-selling and most critically acclaimed release to date. Alternative Press described the album as “bigger, bolder, heavier, catchier and even more savagely fun,” Stereogum said the release “takes flight and soars,” while Magnet Magazine said Whales and Leeches “is a monumental success – a clear line from Red Fang’s earliest recordings to it latest.”

The band performed single “Blood Like Cream” on The Late Show with David Letterman in January (http://youtu.be/bwnGjbGEE_s) and also issued a hilarious video for the song, featuring Portlandia creator/Late Night with Seth Meyers’ bandleader Fred Armisen and the band members during an unusual zombie invasion ( http://youtu.be/elfuaxHQWlQ).

A Twitter (Twitter.com/ScionAV) sweepstakes will be ongoing throughout the tour, with two pairs being given away per show.

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

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal with tags , , , , , , on April 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

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

MELVINS – NEW EP AVAILABLE TODAY AS A ‘FREE DOWNLOAD’ VIA SCIONAV.COM

Posted in heavy metal news, metal music, rock music, rock music news, sludge metal with tags , , , , , , on March 13, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Mar. 13, Torrance, Calif. — Scion A/V has partnered with the Melvins for an EP titled Scion A/V Presents: The Bulls & The Bees, a five-song collection that marks the band’s first original material since their 2010 album The Bride Screamed Murder. The release is available today as a free download via Scion A/V’s website (http://scionav.com/index#!collection/917/The-Melvins—The-Bulls–The-Bees).

A video for “The War on Wisdom,” which features a re-enacted, early incarnation of the Melvins debuts today on Brooklyn Vegan’s website (www.brooklynvegan.com).

The Melvins formed in 1983, kicking off what would be a seismic shift in heavy music and focusing the epicenter of modern music firmly on the Pacific Northwest for the next decade plus. The band blended Punk, Metal, Hard Rock to create a new subgenre that has been tagged with a variety of labels including Sludge, Grunge and Doom and won a cult of fans that have yet to waiver some twenty-nine years into the band’s career. Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover have been the band’s constants (Crover joined in 1984) with Big Business’ Jared Warren and Coady Willis joining the band in 2006 for (A) Senile Animal.

“The Melvins have remained such a consistent presence in heavy music,” says Jeri Yoshizu, manager of sales promotions for Scion.  “It’s an honor to have them create an original release for Scion A/V.”

Osborne described Scion A/V Presents: The Bulls & The Bees as “amazing in its noisy calm intensity.” The physical release will be available at Scion Partners retail stores. For more information about the Scion Partner program and to find retail stores, visit www.scionav.com/partners.

Scion A/V Presents: The Bulls & The Bees Track Listing:

1.  The War on Wisdom

2.  We Are Doomed

3.  Friends Before Larry

4.  A Really Long Wait

5.  National Hamster
