Corrosion Of Conformity - Saviours - promo tour flyer - 2015 - #033MMSS499

California Metal behemoths, SAVIOURS, will embark upon a North American Fall tour supporting Corrosion Of Conformity and Brant Bjork And The Low Desert Punk Band. The trek will commence on November 16th and run through December 10th with additional support provided by Mothership. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 18th at all local ticket outlets.

The tour follows SAVIOURS‘ impending performance at the Day Of The Shred Festival in Santa Ana, California and comes in conjunction with their long-awaited new full-length, Palace Of Vision, set to detonate via Listenable Records next month. Captured at Type Foundry in Portland, Oregon with the inimitable Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, Eyehategod, Taurus, Ommadon etc.), Palace Of Vision thrusts forth nine tracks of SAVIOURS‘ signature brand of towering riffs, colossal rhythms, infectious guitar harmonies and an obsession with the end of times, the occult, psychedelics and the arcane.

Since the 2005 release of their debut EP, Warship, SAVIOURS has worked relentlessly, touring North America, Europe, and Japan with the likes of Mastodon, Corrosion Of Conformity, The Sword, High On Fire, Saint Vitus and Clutch. SAVIOURS has risen to become stalwarts of the world’s metal scene, ambassadors of an aggressive-yet-stoned West Coast vibe, inspired by the ’70s but totally real and relevant in 2015. Rooted in hardcore punk but preferring to cruise in outer space, the lysergic of SAVIOURS hessians have always brought a ton of swing and swagger to their forward-charging heavy metal.

Palace Of Vision will be released via Listenable Records on October 30th, 2015 with preorders to be unveiled in the coming days.

“Cult heaviness…” – Spin

“A dual-guitar riff-fest inspired by NWOBHM and ’70s proto-doom.” – Revolver

SAVIOURS – To Release Palace Of Vision Full-Length This October Via Listenable Records; New Track Playing At Cvlt Nation

This Fall, California metallers, SAVIOURS, will drop the molten fruits of their new full-length this Fall via a new partnership with France’s Listenable Records. Titled Palace Of Vision, their first full-length in four years was captured at Type Foundry in Portland, Oregon with the inimitable Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, Eyehategod, Taurus, Ommadon etc.) and boasts nine tracks of SAVIOURS‘ signature brand of towering riffs, colossal rhythms, infectious guitar harmonies and an obsession with the end of times, the occult, psychedelics and the arcane.

“It’s a natural and logical continuation of where we left off with [2011’s] Death’s Procession,” said drummer Scott Batiste of the offering. “There are some doomy crushers and faster ragers.” As an added bonus, the record comes sheathed in the fittingly dark, intricately transfixing cover renderings of Derrick Snodgrass (Obliterations, Lecherous Gaze).

In anticipation of its arrival, today Cvlt Nation offers up the first helping of Palace Of Vision in the form of opening bruiser, Burning Shrine. Comments Batiste, “‘Burning Shrine’ is about watching the world burn as it is ruined by religious zealots. Crank it up, live evil or die!”

Adds Cvlt Nation: “This motherfucker is a straight raging jam! Fasten your seat belt, press play and let the mammoth riffs the band kicks out do the rest. Caution: SAVIOURS have been known to cause non-stop headbanging – you have been warned!”

Turn up and tune out at THIS LOCATION.

Palace Of Vision – Track Listing:

  1. Burning Shrine
  2. Cursed Night
  3. Devil’s Crown
  4. Flesh Of Fire
  5. Hell’s Floor
  6. Palace Of Vision
  7. The Beast Remains
  8. The Mountain
  9. The Seeker

In related news, SAVIOURS will bring their riffs to the stage with a pair of east coast/west coast fest performances with additional live incursions to be announced in the coming weeks.

SAVIOURS:

9/05/2015 Cosmic Sonic Rendezvous Festival @ The Wick – Brooklyn, NY

11/1/3015 Day Of The Shred Festival @ The Observatory – Santa Ana, CA

Still building upon the foundation that Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy and Motörhead laid, SAVIOURS enters their second decade in a new partnership with French label Listenable Records. Rooted in hardcore punk but preferring to cruise in outer space, the lysergic of SAVIOURS hessians have always brought a ton of swing and swagger to their forward-charging Heavy Metal. The band melds sounds from the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, progressive rock, and proto-doom, and delivers it all with a snarling West Coast hardcore edge. The result is an absolute beast of a sound that is all SAVIOURS‘ own.

Since the 2005 release of SAVIOURS‘ debut EP, Warship, the band has worked relentlessly, touring North America, Europe, and Japan with the likes of Mastodon, Corrosion Of Conformity, The Sword, High On Fire, Saint Vitus and Clutch. In a few short years, SAVIOURS have risen to become stalwarts of the world’s Metal scene, ambassadors of an aggressive-yet-stoned West Coast vibe, inspired by the ’70s but totally real and relevant in 2015.

“You know you’re playing a good set when your music not only commands the attention of the likes of J Mascis and Matt Pike, but you’re sounding so tight that it compels the two guitar greats to air shred like a couple of Maiden fans circa 1980.” – Decibel

SAVIOURS – Oakland Metal Troupe Joins Forces With Listenable Records

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , on February 5, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Saviours - promo band pic - #2015SMO

With four full-lengths and seven EPs to their name and having played in an astounding twenty-one countries, Oakland, California-based Metal unit, SAVIOURS, continues to forge ahead with their towering riffs, colossal rhythms, infectious guitar harmonies and an obsession with the end of times, the occult, psychedelics and the arcane. Still building upon the foundation that Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy and Motörhead laid, SAVIOURS opens a new chapter in their winding career with a partnership with French label Listenable Records who will release the band’s new album this Fall.

Said SAVIOURS in a collective statement: “We’re very happy to finally announce our deal with Listenable. They’re true supporters of what we do and have been a pleasure to work with thus far. Since last June we’ve been beating the new songs into submission and now it’s really starting to take shape and sound killer. There are some doomy crushers and faster ragers in the mix so it’s sounding like a natural and logical continuation of where we left off with Death’s Procession. In March we’ll play some West Coast shows then begin recording at Type Foundry in Portland with the inimitable Billy Anderson. Can’t wait to get this new record out, it’s been too fucking long!”

Stand by for further SAVIOURS updates to be transmitted in the weeks to come.

SAVIOURS:
Austin Barber – guitar, vocals
Sonny Reinhardt – guitar, vocals

Saviours “Into Abaddon” – a worthwhile Metal Music listen

Posted in 2008 metal music albums, Album Review, cool album covers, current heavy metal albums, current heavy metal music, current metal albums, doom metal music, Heavy Metal, heavy metal album covers, heavy metal album review, heavy metal albums, heavy metal bands this decade, heavy metal music, Heavy Metal Reviews, heavy metal this decade, heavy metal vocalists, Metal, metal music, metal music this decade, metal music today, metal odyssey, Metal Reviews, Music, spooky album covers, stoner metal music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 3, 2009 by Metal Odyssey

main-150When I first listened to Saviours “Into Abaddon”, I heard instantly the early Black Sabbath and Motorhead influences, (in my Metal opinion). This second album from Saviours is heavy duty on the riffs, a fine quality about this Metal music. Saviours plays Metal that can be regarded as Stoner Metal or Doom Metal. The Metal here is heavier than traditional – Old School Stoner Metal. With a slight comparison to The Sword, Saviours is darker musically, a more gloomy atmosphere and vocally more tough and raspy. All 7 songs are good, the lack of more songs is made up for by the time length of each song. Lead vocalist and guitarist Austin Barber sounds like he is leading a Metal charge through the dark northern woods of an ancient forgotten land. Musically, these guys have their armor, it is the hard and heavy way they play. I find Saviours difficult to dismiss as just an average Metal band… they are better than I anticipated with this album. It is not as if Saviours has broke any new ground here musically, still this band is not soft on the Metal either. If your into the heavier side of Stoner Metal or are looking for a new and decent Metal band to catch onto, picking up “Into Abaddon” is worth the time and money. Saviours plays Metal the old fashioned way, no hits, no frills or gimmicks, just coming at you with some solid heavy music.

Song list for “Into Abaddon”: 1. Raging Embers, 2. Into Abaddon, 3. Narcotic Sea, 4. Cavern of Mind, 5. Mystichasm, 6. Firewake Angel, 7. Inner Mountain Arthame

CD sidenotes:
The liner notes come with 6 pages of complete lyrics, with cool and spooky, midivil style, extended artwork and the expected credits. (I have always been an admirer of top notch Heavy Metal album artwork, the front cover art of this CD and liner notes art tie in with the Metal Music of Saviours). “Into Abaddon” was released on January 22, 2008, on Kemado Records.

Saviours as they appear on “Into Abaddon”: Austin Barber on guitar and vocals, D.Tyler Morris on guitar, Scott Batiste on drums and Cyrus Comiskey on bass.
