Old school worship! As soon as you get in touch with the songs of this Polish band, you will feel like you are reminded of legendary metal days. Come into life in Warsaw in 2012, THUNDERWAR are paying tribute to bands like DISSECTION, BATHORY, DEATH, OBITUARY and the 1980s NWOBHM. …and much more! After all, the quartet is not content to only emulate their role models. The Poles are also anxious to leave their own accents in the annals of metal. Thus one got to know and appreciate THUNDERWAR on the first EP “The Birth of Thunder” and the full-length debut “Black Storm”.

The five songs of the “Wolfpack” EP continue the chosen path. The Polish group works out even more clearly and compellingly which kind of metal it prefers. This metal is tradition-conscious, harsh and hymnal, and at the same time also complex and exciting. Great riffs, solos, hooklines and poses are part of THUNDERWAR‘s repertoire. The Old School Blackened Death Metal of the quartet has it all! Incidentally, the atmospheric and playful edge of THUNDERWAR‘s metal is surprising and inspiring. These guys know how to write and play metal hymns for eternity.

The “Wolfpack” EP was recorded in Monochrom Studio with producer Haldor (Satanic Audio). Drums were performed by Paweł ‘Pavulon’ Jaroszewicz (HATE), while James Stewart (VADER) filled in for the last live shows of THUNDERWAR. Over their time of existence, the group shared stages with legends such as CARCASS, MAYHEM, AMON AMARTH, ABBATH, DEATH (D.T.A.), OBITUARY, ASPHYX and SINISTER.

“Wolfpack” out May 25th on Lifeforce Records.

That force is KAMIKAZE ZOMBIE and Night of the Nuberus is now upon us. Released in September 2017, the time has arrive for the rest of the world to heed the warning and prepare for an old school crossover attack that combines Black Metal melodies, Doom/Sludge/Death Metal breakdowns, and in-your-face punk/thrash aggression with lyrical content inspired by horror films.

Vocalist/Guitarist Clint Spain had this to say about the band’s macabre creation:

“Night of the Nuberus is our first major release. We went for a horror movie vibe in writing and recording the album, like a love letter to old slasher movies and horror punk bands. But my love for the New Orleans scene, black metal and the Melvins definitely bleeds through.”

The Melvins - Embrace The Rub - 2018 - #333MO4ILMG23

THE MELVINS DEBUT “EMBRACE THE RUB” VIDEO FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM, PINKUS ABORTION TECHNICIAN (APRIL 20, IPECAC RECORDINGS)

_____________________________________________________

March 28, 2018 – Fullerton, Calif. – The Melvins, who recently announced the April 20 release of Pinkus Abortion Technician (Ipecac Recordings), have debuted the Mackie Osborne directed video for “Embrace The Rub” – watch below.

“’Embrace The Rub’ is a Steven McDonald penned, punker tune throwback to his days as a young Hawthorne, CA punk hanging out with Black Flag,” explained Dale Crover. “For some reason, I decided that this tune really needed a piano part.”

The eight-song album is the band’s first to feature two bass tracks on every song, with the bass players being Steve McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!) and Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers). The Melvins previously shared the song “Stop Moving To Florida” from the forthcoming release:

Pinkus Abortion Technician pre-orders are available now (http://smarturl.it/MelvinsPinkus) with digital pre-orders including an instant download of both “Stop Moving To Florida” and “Embrace The Rub.”

The band embarks on a 10-week North American tour on April 26. The trek will feature the Melvins as a four-piece with both Pinkus and McDonald joining Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover.

BAPTISTS – To Release Third Album, “Beacon Of Faith”, Via Southern Lord On May 25th; New Track “Capsule” Now Streaming

Posted in Hard Rock, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on March 23, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Baptists - promo band pic - 2018 - #33ILMG233MO

Vancouver’s BAPTISTS announce their third full-length album, Beacon Of Faith, now confirmed for release through Southern Lord on May 25th. The album’s brooding “Capsule” has been made available for streaming.

Beacon Of Faith broadly follows the same trajectory as the album’s predecessors, Bushcraft (2013) and Bloodmines (2014) – combining the style of raw adrenaline-fueled emotion, venomous vocal delivery, gigantic guitar sound, and a visceral rhythmic propulsion – a sonic manifestation of desolate rage, bolstered by a palpable sense of urgency. The album is densely packed, yet BAPTISTS‘ sound is far from claustrophobic. There is melody amongst the dissonance, as the band more deeply explore the noise rock vistas that have always underpinned their sound.

Lyrics are drawn from the members’ direct experience of a broken society and general discontentment with everyday life. A multitude of issues are in the firing line, from the Canadian court system, issues surrounding substance abuse, mental health, and how the more fortunate, “tend to dismiss people who have been dealt a less-fortunate hand,” as guitarist Danny also reflects.

Beacon Of Faith was recorded at Godcity in Salem, Massachusetts with Kurt Ballou in July 2017, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon.

Hear BAPTISTS’ “Capsule” now at THIS LOCATION or below:

Southern Lord will release Beacon Of Faith on all formats on May 25th; watch for additional updates in the weeks ahead.

“Capsule” Lyrics:
Passing cheeks
A faucet’s drip
The right amount to
Anoint the pit
Saturation
Prevents the clunk
But I want to feel it
As it goes down
Taste what’s going to move me
Before I
Have fucking changed
The tablet drops
An essence seeps
Past consumption
Post misuse
Destination
Informed conceit
A planned reprieve
From culture’s feats

Beacon Of Faith Track Listing:

  1. Worse Than Hate
  2. Absolved Of Life/Spent Cells
  3. Beacon Of Faith
  4. Gift Taker
  5. Capsule
  6. Outbreeding
  7. Vicarious Trauma
  8. Victim Services
  9. Indigo Child
  10. Eulogy Template
  11. Bevel Down
  12. Carbide
  13. Nostrovia
