Bask - Shake The Soot


BASK are a young band from North Carolina that play a highly original blend of Americana, country, post-rock and stoner/doom metal. "American Hollow" is the band’s debut on The Path Less Traveled Records and I can say that this is great stuff. An energetic album with some half-time shuffles that breaks into a pretty straight-forward stoner rock groove, similar to some of the less aggressive tunes by RED FANG.

The vocals have a great twang with a distinctly country vibe, odd but it works. The lads have a great feeling in the musicianship jangly and swiftly guitars slings, big fat drums and a rumbly bass in a melancholy country-like vibe.



Today's tune "Shake The Soot“ is taken from the album "American Hollow", released in September 2015 by This Charming Man Records on LP/CD and digital.

Dirty Sweet - Baby Come Home


DIRTY SWEET was an american rock band formed in the fall of 2003 in San Diego, USA. Just months after their formation the band toured as main support for JIMMY EAT WORLD and made headlines in the British music magazine NME. Later they won the award for “Best new Rock and Roll band” at the 2005 San Diego Music Award and released their debut album, …Of Monarchs and Beggars, in 2007. Unfortunately the band split up in 2011, but rumors says that they will soon be back.

DIRTY SWEET plays Rock that is steeped in it's nation’s musical roots, from country to R&B, gospel to classic rock and heavy metal to proto-grunge. A mixture of disparate influences such as THE ROLLING STONES, Belgian jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt and early U2 make them an interesting addition to today's budding rock climate. The San Diego-based quintet’s name perfectly describes their two-pronged approach to writing and performing, what the NME calls “skuzzy, ass-shaking rawk ‘n’ roll” crossed with the ability to pick up their acoustic guitars and craft a melodic ballad.

Discography: …Of Monarchs and Beggars (Seedling Records, 2007) & American Spiritual (Acetate Records, 2010)


Lineup:

Ryan Koontz (vocals)
Nathan Beale (guitar, vocals)
Christian Schinelli (bass, keys, vocals)
Chris Mendez-Vanacore (drums, vocals)
Mark Murino (guitar)

Today's tune "" is taken from the bands debut album "…Of Monarchs and Beggars" (Seedling Records, 2007), Enjoy!

Feeder - Universe of Life


"All Bright Electric" is the forthcoming ninth studio album by the Welsh rock band FEEDER. It is set to be released on October 7, 2016. Two singles were released from the album, "Universe of Life" and "Eskimo".

On July 4 2016, the band released a short video announcing the dates of a September-October tour, along with a teaser of an upcoming song. On July 15, 2016, the band announced the new album. On the same day, they premiered the album's lead single, "Universe of Life". Grant Nicholas commented on the album: "I wanted the album to really capture FEEDERs heart and soul. For us the journey the music takes the listener on is still so important, and that is what still drives me to make the best music we can" and described its recording sessions "exciting as making our first album "Polythene"".

On August 25, 2016, the band released the track "Eskimo", along with a music video accompanying the release. Grant has said that the track "is a song about a journey of self discovery. We are always looking for the right path in life in which to take and are often casualties of our own misguidance and inner demons." In addition, he said that "We really wanted a trippy, almost psychedelic style video to capture the groove and darker spirit of the song; a modern twist on the 60’s psychedelia imagery with the band more in silhouette." It was also announced that FEEDER would headline the RFL Grand Final at Old Trafford, playing to an estimated 75,000 people on October 8th, 2016.

FEEDER are a Welsh rock band formed 1992 in Newport, Wales. They have released eight studio albums, three compilations, two EPs, and 34 singles.

The new album is going to be released as Limited Edition 180g Heavyweight Gatefold Coloured Vinyl, featuring three bonus tracks. This Vinyl LP includes a digital download version of the album redeemable on day of release. Hurry and you will get it signed!
Order here!

FEEDERs music has been inspired by a wide variety of artists and styles, including THE POLICE, NIRVANA and THE SMASHING PUMPKINS. Their early material showcased a heavy rock sound reminiscent of grunge, but the band would later introduce more acoustic aspects into their music, including elements of pianos and string orchestras.


The band was formed under the name of REEL by vocalist and guitarist Grant Nicholas, drummer Jon Lee and bassist Simon Blight, three of the four members of RAINDANCER, after the departure of that band's other member, guitarist John Canham. However, Blight left REEL later in 1992, and the band played with many session bassists before hiring Taka Hirose in 1995, a year after the band signed with The Echo Label.



Today's tune "Universe of Life" is taken from the upcoming album "All Bright Electric", "FEEDER" are back in scintillating style". At first when I heard this tune I thought about FAIR TO MIDLAND, similar but not them, but close, god I miss them, anyway, enjoy this, as it's good!

Somali Yacht Club - The Sun


New week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

SOMALI YACHT CLUB is a stoner rock trio from Lviv, Ukraine. The band mixes elements of stoner rock, psychedelic rock, shoegazing and post-metal in their music.

Formed in 2010 as a jam band, they evolved quickly to a main band for its members. In August 2011 they self-released their first four-song EP "Sandsongs", followed by two 1-track EPs and finally their stunning full length "The Sun". The album was self released by the band, got a digital release by Robust fellow rec in 2015 and is now honoured with a vinyl release.


The White Vinyl Version

"The Sun" is a very atmospheric album where the varying is high, slow, emotional harmonies to exploding parts with heavy riffing layers along with strong vocals. The album contains only 5 songs, but with a play time of 42 mins, the fact is that every tune is at least 7 mins or longer is what these guys need to tell the story. Long, oh no, perfect!

Along with a great production sound, marvelous dynamic, emotion and mixture of the different styles along with professional musicians with lyrics that covers the dark themes is a perfect mix.

Sum: Great stuff, check it up, could be so that you would not be able to live with out it!

Black Sabbath - Paranoid


Sunday, time for a classic.

"Paranoid" is a song by the British rock band BLACK SABBATH, featured on their second album Paranoid (1970). It is the first single from the album, while the B-side is the song "The Wizard".




"Paranoid" was the first BLACK SABBATH single release, coming six months after their debut album was released. BLACK SABBATH bassist Geezer Butler (from Guitar World magazine, March 2004):

A lot of the "Paranoid" album was written around the time of our first album,"Black Sabbath". We recorded the whole thing in about 2 or 3 days, live in the studio. The song "Paranoid" was written as an afterthought. We basically needed a 3 minute filler for the album, and Tony came up with the riff. I quickly did the lyrics, and Ozzy was reading them as he was singing.

Paranoid was also used as the name of the album, and somewhat unusually, the word paranoid is never mentioned in the lyrics. Originally the band had wanted to call the album "War Pigs" after the song of the same name, but the record company persuaded them to use Paranoid instead because it was less offensive.

The original BLACK SABBATH recording has been used numerous times in various films and television shows including Sid & Nancy, Dazed and Confused, The Stoned Age, Any Given Sunday, Almost Famous, We Are Marshall, The Angry Birds Movie, and Suicide Squad. The song was used in the Sega Mega Drive game Rock n' Roll Racing in 1993.

Today's tune "Paranoid" is the title track taken from the second studio album, Released in September 1970, it was the band's only LP to top the UK Albums Chart until the release of 13 in 2013. "Paranoid" contains several of the band's signature songs, including "Iron Man", "War Pigs" and the title track, which was the band's only Top 20 hit, reaching number 4 in the UK charts. It is often regarded as one of the most quintessential and influential albums in heavy metal history.

The single was released in many Country's, many with their own covers, here is a few of them, enjoy the 70's art.














Today's video for "Paranoid" was filmed in Belgium 1970.

Mongol Horde - Make Way


MÖNGÖL HÖRDE is an English hardcore punk band formed in 2012. The group features Frank Turner on vocals, Ben Dawson on drums and Matt Nasir on guitar. Turner and Dawson are both former members of hardcore punk outfit MILLION DEAD. Frank Turner is now best known for his solo folk-punk material, and Matt Nasir is part of his backing band, THE SLEEPING SOULS. Lyrically, MÖNGÖL HÖRDE is not as serious as Frank Turner's other projects, with Turner stating, "Lyrically it's very different from what I do now, it's kind of depraved. The first song we wrote is about Natalie Portman's tapeworm using her as a glove puppet to lead an uprising in Hollywood. We're writing a whole pile of new songs and we're going to do some live dates soon."

The band made their live débuts at free shows in London and Leeds in the two days before the band played on the Lock Up Stage at Reading and Leeds Festival.


Today's tune "Make Way" is taken from their self-titled debut album was released on 26 May 2014.

Sahg – Black Unicorn


The four-piece Norwegian hard rock/ doom metal band SAHG have released their third single from the upcoming album "Memento Mori", set to be released on the September 23, 2016.

SAHG was formed in Bergen in the summer of 2004, by key figures in the metal scene of their country: Tom Cato Visnes (KING OV HELL), Einar Selvik (KVITRAFN), Olav Iversen and Thomas Tofthagen. Iversen has been the main songwriter and the only constant member of the band since its inception.

SAHG features members of GORGOROTH, AUDREY HORNE and MANNGARD.

The album release date coincides with the 39th birthday of Olav Iversen (SAHG frontman), an aspect that's symbolic to the title. Iversen explains:

“ Memento Mori was one of several options that we had on note for a long time. But then Lemmy (Kilmister) died. And (David) Bowie died. And all of a sudden, all these rock icons disappeared, one by one. People that have made their imprint on history and influenced us musically since childhood. It made a great impression on a personal level, and started a grieving process that influenced the making of the album. Suddenly it was very clear what the album title would be. “Remember, you must die”. Even immortal legends like Bowie and Lemmy don’t live forever.

“During the making of Memento Mori, Black Unicorn stood out as a single and opening track of the album. The idea was to introduce the album with an eerie atmosphere and unsettling tension that you would instantly tap into and want to explore further. From the uncomfortable relief of the chorus, the song twists and turns into something quite different than I hope many would expect. Black Unicorn is a call for caution against radicalism in general. All ideologies end up murdering the innocent when taken too far. This is truly one of our all-time stand-out tracks, that we will bring with us into the future.

We left it in the hands of film director Benjamin Langeland and his crew at Flimmer Film to create the video for Black Unicorn. We had our initial thoughts and ideas for the aesthetic direction, but Benjamin took it his own way. And looking at how it turned out, we are very happy that he did. He turned it into a horror universe of medieval sorts, with a story that turns from dark to pitch black in the end. My daughter Stella is starring in the video, and she made daddy very proud, by giving a stellar performance.”



The beautiful Video of today's tune "Black Unicorn" is made by Benjamin Langeland.

Cancer Bats - Beelzebub


Today I pick a random tune from the list of unplayed tunes.

The mighty Canadian CANCER BATS released a music video from "Searching for Zero", their fifth studio album which came out in March 2015. "Beelzebub" is the band’s third music video from the album, following “True Zero,” and, “Satellites.”

CANCER BATS take a wide variety of influences from heavy metal subgenres and fuse them into hardcore and punk rock and also include elements of Southern rock. Their sound has thus been likened to sludge metal, as well as to that of metalcore bands such as CONVERGE and HATEBREED. The members of CANCER BATS have also toured and recorded as a BLACK SABBATH cover band under the name BAT SABBATH.


Liam Cormier day job is fronting the CANCER BATS but his passion is not only in music. MCN spent some time with Liam Cormier before a trip to Norway to play a festival to find out what it’s like balancing life on tour and riding motorbikes…, read it here!


Today's tune "Beelzebub" is taken from the fifth studio album, "Searching for Zero", it was released on March 10, 2015.

Tunga Moln - All Along the Watchtower


Tuesday, time for a cover and today we really have a great one.

The Swedes in TUNGA MOLN were invited to take part in Magnetic Eye Records' "Electric Ladyland [Redux]" tribute to Jimi Hendrix. They submitted their interpretation of "All Along The Watchtower", a hard task indeed, but something they solved brilliant and all the vocals is in their own native language, Swedish.


"All Along the Watchtower" is a song written and recorded by the American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. The song initially appeared on his 1967 album John Wesley Harding, and it has been included on most of Dylan's subsequent greatest hits compilations. Since the late 1970s, he has performed it in concert more than any of his other songs. Different versions appear on four of Dylan's live albums.

Covered by numerous artists in various genres, "All Along the Watchtower" is strongly identified with the interpretation Jimi Hendrix recorded for Electric Ladyland with the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The Hendrix version, released six months after Dylan's original recording, became a Top 20 single in 1968 and was ranked 47th in Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Electric Ladyland [Redux] was released July 3, 2015 DIGITAL / November 27, 2015 DELUXE CD/ DOUBLE GATEFOLD 2X VINYL LP on Magnetic Eye Records. Get the vinyl here: http://merhq.net

"Electric Ladyland [Redux]" is a tribute to the masterwork of James Marshall Hendrix celebrating his brilliant 1968 chart toping double album. We have assembled some of the most amazing bands and likeminded record labels to bring you Electric Ladyland covered in full; all 16 tracks. From London's ELEPHANT TREE providing a sitar infused opening track to ELDER closing out Side D with their cover of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return) this truly is the best effort we could possibly have delivered in celebrating one of our favorite musicians and his incredible vision for what an album could be.

With tracks from bands such as EARTHLESS, ALL THEM WITCHES, SUMMONER, MOTHERSHIP, WO FAT and more and album cover and jacket art illustrated by David Paul Seymour we are knowing you will love this album as much as we do.

Enjoy TUNGA MOLNs version!

Blues Pills - Lady In Gold


Monday and a new week, that means it's time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

The Swedish Psychedelic Blues Rockers BLUES PILLS are back with their second album "Lady in Gold". A record that was released in August 2016.

"Lady in Gold" consists of ten tracks including a cover of Tony Joe White's "Elements and Things" from the 1969 album "...Continued". "Lady gold is a character who symbolizes death. The band wanted a twist on the typical stereotype of death being the grim reaper. So instead they made her a lady in gold." Don Alsterberg (GRAVEYARD, DIVISION OF LAURA LEE and JERRY WILLIAMS) once again took the production role of the album. It also marks the studio debut of drummer André Kvarnström. The cover art are made by dutch artist Marijke Koger-Dunham.


"Lady in Gold" is a proper sophomore full-length. A really bold and infectious record, the songs are well handcrafted, a great swing with a grooviness is freaking hard to sit still during a spin. The songs have a very high catchiness witch would appeal to the broader mass of fans. Elin Larsson voice very Soulful and Bluesy, think Aretha Franklin with an attack of Janis Joplin. The music continues where they last ended, a sweet confetti Blues-rock with a strong psychedelic vibe and excellent songs, some tunes have a little more popish approach than they use to have, nothing bad with that. This is a very strong album that probably will gain even bigger landmark than the previous album. The future looks really bright.

Sum: Don't miss "Lady in Gold", it's an psychedelic soul fueled blues-rock trip that will spin more than one time!




In 2016, BLUES PILLS will tour with KADAVAR, play festivals in the summer in North America and Europe followed by a UK tour in November.

Today's tune "Lady In Gold" is the title track from this week's "Record of The Week"

ZZ Top - I Thank You


Sunday, time for a classic.

"I Thank You" is a song written by David Porter and Isaac Hayes originally recorded by Sam & Dave, released in early 1968. The single was Sam & Dave's final release on Stax Records, reaching #9 on the Billboard Pop Singles chart and #4 on the R&B chart. Shortly after its release, Stax severed its distribution deal with Atlantic Records and Sam & Dave, who were actually signed to Atlantic and loaned out to Stax, began recording for Atlantic proper. The song begins with Sam's spoken introduction that goes: "I want everybody to get off your seat,/ And get your arms together,/ And your hands together,/ And give me some of that old soul Clapping". First, Sam sings the Refrain, plus the first verse, and the refrain, while Dave sings the second verse, the refrain, and the third verse, with both Sam and Dave sharing on the repeated "Thank Yous" portion. Following a brief instrumentalist, Sam sings the Refrain, with Dave, joining him, on the Coda with the repeated "Thank Yous".

ZZ TOP covered the song on their 1979 album "Degüello". The band released the song as a single the next year. Like the original, it too charted, reaching #34 on the singles chart, becoming the band's second Top 40 hit (after "Tush", four years earlier).


Today's tune "I Thank You", taken from the sixth studio album "Degüello", released November 1979, enjoy!

Gozu - Nature Boy


Boston based GOZU have released a brand new album "Revival" where we going to get a taste from with the new single/video "Nature Boy".

At their core, GOZU is a bad ass American rock band. They’ve got heavy riffs in tow and bang out tunes loud enough to piss off the neighbors. GOZU is a songwriting machine, one that is able to churn out loud, hard hitting compositions without sacrificing the meaning behind the songs or the band. Gruff and dirty when it needs to be just as it’s swift and soulful when the time is right.

GOZU first appeared on the scene in 2009 with the release of their seven track EP. Consisting of members of bands such as WARGASM and CLOUDS. After a line-up change which brought on board bassist Jay Cannava of Miltown and Clouds infamy, GOZU continues to chug along at its own pace. Small Stone Records snapped up GOZU in 2009 and they released their critically acclaimed album “Locust Season.” GOZU spent the next year touring the Northeast with bands like ST. VITUS, PALLBEARER, FU MANCHU, HELMET, ELDER, LO PAN among others.

Following the success of Locust Season in 2010, GOZU returned to Mad Oak Studios and The Bridge Sound and Stage in 2013 to record their second full length album “The Fury of a Patient Man.” 2014 the band added Warhorse (Southern Lord) drummer Mike Hubbard to the mix. With the key members in tact, GOZU embarked ontheir first European tour playing the Holy Grail of festivals Roadburn and Dessert Fest with CHURCH OF MISERY and KVELERTAK.

In 2015, Gozu headed into Wild Arctic studio and recorded their third album. However, it is their first album on their new label, Ripple Music.

With a new label and a new album, only great things lie ahead for this juggernaut ensemble built on the foundation of pure rock, soul, and metal.



GOZU is:

Mike Hubbard - drums and percussion
Joseph Grotto - bass and low end
Douglas Sherman - lead guitar and sounds
Marc Gaffney - guitar and vocals

"Revival" Artwork, layout and design by Chris Smith

Today's tune "Nature Boy" is taken from the bands latest release "Revival", released June 10, 2016. The Video was Directed and Edited by Tom Corino, Camera and Effects by Ben Lipiecki.
