GREEN LUNG – From the UK emerges a Doom Metal band of seasoned musicians named GREEN LUNG. These dudes have just released their debut single, Green Man Rising, on June 1st. This groovy, doomy, psychedelic (intertwined) with stoner goodness song is available on the bands’ bandcamp site, (see below). Clean vocals and a beefy executed song; even the B side song is worth the price for the doom voyage.

I dig the sound that GREEN LUNG have captured; this band has created respectable chunky riffage and relevant doom atmosphere that also grasps and holds onto some Sabbath-like vibes. Keep on plowing down the doom soaked freeway GREEN LUNG, considering I am eager to hear a whole lot more doom from you. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Side A: Green Man Rising

Side B: Freak On A Peak

GREEN LUNG Bio:

Formed in March 2017, GREEN LUNG play heavy psychedelia that is more attuned to wild woodlands than desert dunes. Made up of current and former members of stoner heavies Oak, occult doom trio Tomb King and instrumental sludge minimalists Deadbox Radio, the London-based four-piece have combined strengths to record an opening salvo that balances gargantuan heaviness with intricate melody.

GREEN LUNG:

Vocals – Tom Killingbeck
Guitar – Scott Masson
Bass – Andrew Cave
Drums – Matt Wiseman

HE WHOSE OX IS GORED – Ethereal Progressive Sludge Collective To Release “Paralyzer” Seven-Inch; First Ever Video Revealed + Tour With Samothrace Draws Near

He Whose Ox Is Gored - Paralyzer - cover promo pic - 2017 - #33MOILN

Ethereal Sludge unit HE WHOSE OX IS GORED will unleash their brand new “Paralyzer” seven-inch this weekend via Chain Letter Collective and the band’s own label Void Assault Records.

Captured by renowned producer Jack Endino (Soundgarden, Nirvana, L7, High On Fire, Zeke etc.) at Avast! Recording Studio (Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Earth, Supersuckers etc.), “Paralyzer” was recorded as part of a Converse Rubber Tracks session and includes two previously released tracks — “Buried Twice” and “Void Assault” from the band’s critically lauded Rumors EP — remixed by their cohorts in Seattle’s Newaxeyes.

“The ‘Paralyzer’ seven-inch started as a great opportunity presented to us by Converse Rubber Tracks and Jack Endino,” HE WHOSE OX IS GORED comments. “We also wanted to find a way to work with our friends in Newaxeyes and a seven-inch came to mind. When Ben and Heather Heywood of Los Angeles’ Chain Letter Collective came on board, it created an opportunity for us to bring it all together.”

“Paralyzer” will see official release on June 16th but will be available this Sunday, May 14th at the band’s special show with Conan, North, and Serial Hawk at Highline on their home turf of Seattle as part of the venue’s seven-year anniversary series. The seven-inch will also be available throughout HE WHOSE OX IS GORED‘s US tour with Samothrace from May 17th through June 10th. The trek includes performances with Void Omina, Noothgrush, and Graves At Sea on select dates. See all confirmed shows below.

In celebration of its release, today the band is pleased to unveil the visual accompaniment to “Paralyzer” (their first-ever video) at THIS LOCATION.

Album cover artwork by David Newman-Stump and Roy Young.

Whoa! Look at that album artwork above! That’s 100% Metal. Bravo to the two artists named at the top of this post; a Metal job well done! Once again, Set Abominae is featured on this new ICED EARTH album cover and after so many years, this mascot has quietly become rather iconic within the world of Metal, in my Metal opinion.

Yes, I will be buying this new ICED EARTH album. It releases on June 16th. Most probably I’ll buy the CD and hopefully scrape up the cash for a vinyl purchase too. Seriously, this is an album (based on its artwork alone) that must be owned on vinyl! I’ve never seen ICED EARTH in concert and they are on my very long bucket list of bands to see. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Incorruptible – Track Listing:

Great Heathen Army

Black Flag

Raven Wing

The Veil

Seven Headed Whore

The Relic (Part 1)

Ghost Dance (Awaken The Ancestors)

Brothers

Defiance

Clear The Way (December 13th, 1862)

Round 7 of The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise set sail
February 2-6, 2017, marking the seventh consecutive sellout for 70000TONS OF METAL™. Priding themselves as being an International Heavy Metal Family at Sea, 70000TONS OF METAL™ 2017 sailed with Metalheads from an astounding 74 different countries who enjoyed a luxury Caribbean cruise leaving from Miami/Ft.

Prior to sailing there was a lot of online discussion amongst Sailors about
what they could do to provide aid to those in need in Haiti, which inspired
the crew at 70000TONS OF METAL™ to make their own contribution – they will be auctioning off a very unique Michael Schenker 2004 model Dean Guitar, which was signed by the world-class artists who participated in the jam:

Elize Ryd (AMARANTHE), Esa Holopainen (AMORPHIS), Jeff Waters / Fabio Alessandrini / Rich Hinks / Aaron Homma (ANNIHILATOR), Charlie Benante / Frank Bello / Scott Ian (ANTHRAX), Ben Ash (CARCASS), Mark Osegueda / Will Carroll (DEATH ANGEL), Lisa Cuthbert (DRACONIAN), Jon Gallagher (DYING FETUS), Van Williams (GHOST SHIP, OCTAVIUS), Axel Ritt (GRAVE DIGGER), Bobby Blitz (OVERKILL), Per Nilsson (SCAR SYMMETRY), Fabio D’Amore (SERENITY), Rich Ward (STUCK MOJO), Alex Skolnick / Steve DiGiorgio / Gene Hoglan (TESTAMENT), Thomas Vikström / Linnéa Vikström (THERION), Russ Bergquist (TOUCH THE SUN), and Steven Wussow / Philip Restemeier (XANDRIA).

The album was co-produced by vocalist J.Loren Wince, from alt-rockers HURT.

“This is what we were waiting for,” said bassist Dorian Gates. “Over the last year we have put our hard work to make this album get to you. And we are blessed and honored to have by our side J Loren from Hurt and the guys at Pavement Entertainment.”

Guitarist Nick Christolis adds: “We blended in our music all of our influences: old meets new, classic meets modern. Thoughts turn into music, music becomes food for thought.”

The twelve-track beast follows the band’s 2014 EP Ghosts Like Her and includes the single “Break My Chains,” which was released in December 2015. Like Stars in a Neon Sky also features an adrenalized rendition of Savage Garden’s pop hit “Break Me Shake Me.”

Revolver Magazine will help give GHOST SEASON a proper introduction to Metal fans with the exclusive premiere of the video for “Fade Away,” set to post on the album’s January 27 release date.
