Kalmah - Evil Kin

The finish blackened thrash, melodic death/power, folk rockers KALMAH have released their eight full-length album "Palo". And as always the ship is ed by the Kokko brothers Antti (guitars) and Pekka (guitars, vocals). Backed up by the loyal dudes Timo Lehtinen (bass), Janne Kusmin (drums) and their latest recruit Veli-Matti Kananen (keyboards). "Palo" is a powerful high energy record with roots of death metal, Finnish melodic heritage, cantankerous never-say-die attitude and themes of Northern nature and the folly of mankind.

KALMAH was formed in Oulu, Finland in 1998. In less than a year after its formation, KALMAH was signed by Spinefarm Records. The word "kalmah" is Karelian and could be translated as "to the grave" or "to the death".

Antti Kokko states: “Almost 30 years of swamp madness and here we are today representing our 8th album with fishing tridents sharpened shiny. The album stands strongly on the very roots of KALMAH sound yet introduces fresh breath from the Swamplord’s tar-stained lungs. "The Evil Kin" as the first single gives you riffs written back in 1991 blended with melodies of Kalmah today. It’s a perfect statement to show where we were and are right now.”

Today's tune "Evil Kin" is the first single of "Palo", enjoy!

Amorphis - Queen Of Time

Monday, new week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

"Queen Of Time" is the thirteenth studio album from the metal icons AMORPHIS, one of Finland’s biggest musical export alongside NIGHTWISH.

"Queen Of Time" is a collection of epic songs, well carved with an impressive musical creation, sound fresh and familiar. It's very progressive with death folk techniques, big atmospheric soundscape, amazing chemistry, clever melody with sharp riffing by Esa Holopainen and Tomi Koivusaari, rhythm section by Santeri Kallio who handles the key together with the drummer Jan Rechberger does a excellent work, tastefully vocals in both the clean and the harsh delivery by Tomi Joutsen and I guess the original bassist Olli-Pekka Laine return after a 17-year absence has made some impact in the creation of the album. The album has got a great treat in the production, by Jens Bogren. "Queen Of Time" was released May 18, 2018 on Nuclear Blast.

"Queen Of Time" opens up with the strong tune "The Bee", chants, powerful keys harmony, heavy harsh vocals mixed with clean singing. Follows up with a more folkier rocker "Message in the Amber", a more progressive and softer piece. Next in line is "Daughter Of Hate", a tune that follows the more traditional AMORPHIS standard, catchy rocker with Jørgen Munkeby extraordinarily in-demand saxophone and a native spoken word that makes a nice spice to the tune. "The Golden Elk" is a great piece with an atmospheric layout, powerful vocals and beautiful riffing. "Wrong Direction" is more straightforward tune with pure clean vocals and catchy melody. "Heart Of The Giant" and "We Accursed" follows the folkish line with harsh vocals and powerful melody, a more standard AMORPHIS tune. "Grain Of Sand" is a deep and sorrowful piece, Mideast folky harmony, deep riffing and keys. "Amongst Stars" with Anneke van Giersbergen as guest vocal, great piece, see the video below. The album closes with the beautiful "Pyres On The Coast", a monstrous piece with amazing harmony.  The two bonus tunes "As Mountains Crumble" and "Brothers And Sisters" follows the AMORPHIS standard with a lot of keys in an atmospheric landscape in a very high standard.

Sum: AMORPHIS did it again, "Queen Of Time" is an epic piece of music.

Today's tune "Amongst Stars" taken from "Queen Of Time", enjoy!

Buffalo Springfield - Mr Soul

Sunday, time for a classic.

"Mr. Soul" is a song released by the American-Canadian rock band BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD in June 1967, from their second studio album "Buffalo Springfield Again.

"Mr. Soul" is about Neil Young's personal problems with fame and disregard towards rock stardom. It was written by Young after experiencing an epilepsy attack after an early show with BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD in San Francisco. Many people in the audience were questioning if it was part of the act. While being a patient at UCLA Medical Center's neuropsychiatry branch, he wrote the song once he was awake and recovering and told to return for further tests. The lyrics had reflected Young's experience, feeling as though he was about to die. Thereupon, he was advised by his doctor to never take LSD or any other hallucinogenic drugs.

Composed on an acoustic twelve-string guitar, the dark and moody song is in double drop D tuning, which Young used in a number of other songs, such as "Ohio" and "Cinnamon Girl". On the third track of Sugar Mountain - Live at Canterbury House 1968, Young stated that, "A lot of songs take a long time to write. Generally they take an hour and a half, two hours to write. But this one took only five minutes". Young subsequently recorded several other versions of the song, often with marked stylistic changes. The song has been described by music writers as folk rock, psychedelic rock, and hard rock.


Stephen Stills - guitar (lead), backing vocals
Neil Young - guitar, lead vocals
Richie Furay - guitar, backing vocals
Dewey Martin - drums
Bruce Palmer - bass guitar

Gaupa - The Drunk Autopussy Wants to Fight You

Swedish rockers GAUPA comes from a deep cellar in the concrete jungle of Falun, Sweden. They have their roots in stoner rock, from which they developed their own style with elements as heavy doom with progressive tones together with the high-energy singer (Emma Näslund) with surreal lyrics, and a vocal that reminds me of Björk, which strangely works really well in the slightly tougher and raw tongues like this.

GAUPA consists of:

Emma Näslund - Vocals
David Rosberg - Guitars
Daniel Nygren - Guitar
Erik Jerka Sävström - Bass
Jimmy Hurtig - Drums

Today's tune "The Drunk Autopussy Wants to Fight You" is taken from the latest self-titled EP available on Bandcamp The tune is written and performed by GAUPA. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Erik Berglund. Video directed, shot and edited by David Rosberg

Heliod - Lone Wolf

In the beginning there was the God of the Sun.

And with his light he created his sons.

They are from now on their way to spread his light. With music...

HELIOD hails from Dresden, Germany and on their self titled debut do they captured the essence of their wandering so far. Without any label or producer but the help of friends and family, they came out with 8 songs, each packed with dense atmosphere fed by different genres. Songs which resemble their journey through the warm, the cold, the me and the us…

A journey through the sounds of the Sun. And the Moon… For a recording that launches from the swamp, makes a flyby of the sun and concludes with a moon landing, HELIODs eponymous debut is suitably propulsive and cosmically-inclined. The voyage is ably achieved on the strength of an interstellar riff rocket, eight groove generators and a tankful of ballistic blues.


Tom Schneppat: guitar, vocals
Tom Witschel: guitar
Maximilian Meyer: bass guitar
Martin Jahn: drums

All Songs written and performed by HELIOD
Organs in "Trees" performed by Falk Schönfelder
Recorded at MorningWood Studios by Ralf & Falk Schönfelder
Mixed by Peter Heise
Mastered by Johannes Frank at Feinklang-Mastering Leipzig
Released April 13, 2018

Sergeant Thunderhoof - The Tree and The Serpent

Psychedelic tinged heavy grooves from the mystical realms of Somerset in England.

SERGEANT THUNDERHOOF are that weird exception to the rule, a band who have turned down record label interest so that they can control their own destiny, a band who like doing things for themselves, and more power to them for doing that because so far it seems to be working. "Terra Solus" is the bands third studio album and if you are familiar with their past work you will know to expect plenty of addictive grooviness, raucous riffage and hazy psychedelics all executed with a breath-taking level of musicianship and outstanding display of vocal dynamics and "Terra Solus" does not disappoint in any of those departments.

Formed in late 2013, Bath (UK) based rock outfit SERGEANT THUNDERHOOF initially started as an excuse for old friends to get together once in a while and jam some tasty licks. It soon became apparent that a collective sound was emerging and so it was decided that they would go into the studio and do some recording. The result of which was 'Zigurat', a killer 5 track EP, stretching over 40 psychedelic doom drenched minutes. 2015 saw the release of their first full length album 'Ride of The Hoof' which garnered even more attention and led to features in magazines such as Metal Hammer and Terrorizer, plus a main stage slot at the first ever sold-out HRH Doom vs Stoner festival in Sheffield.

"Terra Solus" was released May 12th 2018.

Cassette Release, edition of 50

Death Alley - Murder Your Dreams

Amsterdam four piece heavy rockers DEATH ALLEY have released their second album, "Superbia", March 23 as their debut on Century Media. The eight-track outing is rife with a progressive feel even beyond what the band brought to their 2015 Tee Pee Records first long-player, Black Magick Boogieland (review here), and no, I’m not just talking about the King Crimson-style chase scenes tucked into 11-minute closer “The Sewage.” It’s the whole record. Even as the opening push of “Daemon” seems to pick up where “Supernatural Predator” from the preceding full-length left off, it does so bring together different sides of DEATH ALLEYs sound — the melody and the danger — the raw earth thrust and the outer space presence.

Behold DEATH ALLEY. The New Wave of Dutch Loudness gave birth to not just another band. No, thriving on the sharp edges of Motörhead’s rock and roll, soaked in MC5-fuelled protopunk and forged with Sabbath’s edginess, DEATH ALLEY brings a unique swinging rawness that savors of BLUE OYSTER CULT on steroids.

The band – that features ex-members of GEWAPEND BETON, MUHR, and THE DEVILs BLOOD – will surprise you with an unorthodox cross contamination of fine metal and rock ‘n roll tunes, crowned with a pitch black psychedelic soul cherry.

Today's tune "Murder Your Dreams", taken from the album "Superbia".

Graveyard - Peace

Monday, time to introduce "Record Of The Week".

"Peace" is the fifth studio album by Swedish hard rock band GRAVEYARD.

After a turbulent time after the previous release "Innocence & Decadence" the band decided to throw in the towel and put the band in hibernation. January 26, 2017, saw the re-opening of the doors of perception as GRAVEYARD announced they were back, but this time without founding drummer Axel Sjöberg that decided he wanted to stay in his new band, so they recruited Oskar Bergenheim as the new drummer.

"Peace" is a like a flowing stream of liquid rock, groovy rhythms, and interesting lyrics. The last album "Innocence & Decadence" was a great album, but "Peace" is something else, the creation vain and the joy to be able to play again shines thru the music and the lyrics, which adds a happy and very bumpy (legs) ride when you let this album loose on the turntable. I really like what I hear, fuzzy tones and straight-forward rock with the characteristic sound GRAVEYARD have.

The album starts with a speedy and very groovy tune "It Ain’t Over Yet", and I scream hell yeah! Tunes like the beauty "See The Day" that is just stunning with bassist Truls Mörck on vocals, he also sings on "Birds Of Paradise". "Cold Love" just melts me like a package of butter in the sun and the drumming is meaty and light at the same time, well played Oscar, a really refreshing recruit! , the first single "Please Don't" is a very riff-heavy piece, that will knock most of the GRAVEYARD fans around the globe. "Walk On" is truly a piece of art, the riffing between Jonatan and Joakim is amazing, the rhythms from the bass licks and the drumming is stunning. The band has really outdone them self here! "Del Manic" is slow bluesy tune wile "A Sign of Peace" is more uptempo, straight ahead rocker. The shortest tune is the Garage rocker "The Fox" to the longest "Low (I Wouldn’t Mind)", album closer with its organ sounding blues-locomotive rhythms that make your heart pump an extra inch every single minute the tune spins. "Peace" is an excellent comback album that is really fun to listen to. The album was produced by Chips Kiesbye.

Sum: GRAVEYARD is back more hungry than ever, and with a new energy in the album "Peace" is something you wouldn't miss.

Today's tune "Please Don't" was the first single from "Peace", enjoy!

Heavy Load - Heavy Metal Angels

Sunday, time for a classic.

HEAVY LOAD is a Swedish heavy metal band from Stockholm. The band is often hailed as the first Swedish heavy metal band and were known for their Viking themes. The Wahlquist brothers, who founded the band in 1976 along with Michael Backler, were later producers and owners of Thunderload Records in Sweden, were at one point producing Veni Domine, and also were considering releasing a new album, though that never occurred. Misfortune struck when Thunderload Studios got severely damaged due to a water leakage in the 2000s, which meant a halt to its official existence. After the breakup, the members then went on and performed with other bands.

The band reformed in October 2017 and announced a series of shows for 2018. Sweden Rock Festival was one of them. A Re-released of "Stronger than Evil" was released earlier this year, a plan to Re-released the other two albums are in the pipeline, hopefully, they are done at the end of the year for a release during 2019. A plan to finish off the unreleased album with some new tracks for next year could also be true since the shows so far have been a success for the band.

Today's tune "Heavy Metal Angels (in metal and leather)" is taken from "Stronger than Evil". The video is from 1983.

Guitar and lead vocals: Ragne Wahlquist
Drums and vocals: Styrbjörn Wahlquist
Guitar and vocals: Eddy Malm
Bass guitar: Torbjörn Ragnesjö

Here is the tune live from Keep it True XXI 27-28/04/2018 Lauda-Königshofen (Germany)

Meshuggah - Demiurge

Another band at Swedish Rock Festival is the Swedish experimental extreme metallers MESHUGGAH. A band that I will for sure see if time let me.

A cool video for "Demiurge" was released ages ago, taken from the great "Koloss" album.

The video was shoot combining extreme camera angles with adrenaline-inducing performance footage from the band's sold-out show at Terminal 5 in New York City this past May, "Demiurge" was filmed and directed by Anthony Dubois. The song comes off MESHUGGAH's latest album, "Koloss", which has sold more than 41,000 copies in the United States since its March release.

Tomas Haake stated, "As always, we try to take our music in a slightly different direction with each album and with Koloss, we feel that we really nailed what we were going for. Organic brutality, viscera and groove all crammed into a 54-minute metalicious treat, best avoided by the faint of heart!!"

Enjoy today's tune!

Puscifer - The Remedy

PUSCIFER is an American rock supergroup formed in Los Angeles by Maynard James Keenan, known as the lead singer of the band's TOOL and A PERFECT CIRCLE. As Keenan is the only permanent member, he considers the project to be his "creative subconscious." In light of this, PUSCIFER is considered a pseudonym for his solo work.

"The Remedy" really is a borderline-extinction-level event where we're worrying about food, clothing and shelter rather than worrying about whether or not you should use the word "retard". We're so far away from the reality of what it means to survive, and buying into the polarized crap that goes on in the political arena, and also caught up in what you think you deserve. "I deserve free shipping!" You know? It's just so disconnected with real life, and what it takes to survive. And maybe because I grew up on a farm, and maybe because I've done that work and maybe because I live in Arizona, where everything will kill you if you're not aware... maybe I just have a different perspective than most people. Kids that spend all the time on their phone have no idea that it's raining — they have to wipe the water off of their screen to check and see if it's raining on their fucking app!

Today's "The Remedy" is taken from "Money Shot". The Video is directed by Adam Rothlein and Puscifer. Featuring MJ Keenan, Mat Mitchell, Carina Round, Jeff Friedl, Mahsa Zargaran, Paul Barker.

At The Gates - To Drink From The Night Itself

Monday, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

"To Drink From The Night Itself" is the sixth album from the Swedish melodic death metal innovators, AT THE GATES. The album was released on May 18 via Century Media. Produced with Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, THE HAUNTED, DIMMU BORGIR) at Parlour Studios in the U.K.

"To Drink From The Night Itself" is the follow-up 2014's "At War With Reality" features conceptual artwork created by Costin Chioreanu of Twilight 13 Media, who previously worked with AT THE GATES on the band's last album.

The departure of the founding member Anders Björler has not caused the band to fall down into the abyss. Instead, his brother Jonas has taken one step up and grabbed the lead in the making of a powerful new album, already on the first tune you will recognize the band, the musical arrangements are classic AT THE GATES style, hard, heavy and totally crashing, the sound is deeper and darker, the melodies are carefully crafted by musically genius.

Jonas Stålhammar (BOMBS OF HADES, THE LURKING FEAR) replaces Anders Björler on guitar and he does really a great job here with twin partner Martin Larsson. Tomas Lindberg vocals have not changed much, it still sounds harsh and vicious with feelings of despair and frustration. And deliciously playing by the drummer Adrian Erlandsson, that shines with clever beat changes that give a different and seductive rhythm.

The heroic instrumental “Der Widerstand” (of the resistance) begins the journey into the concept of the album which uses the epic novel “The Aesthetics of Resistance” by Peter Weiss for inspiration. The novel tells a story of Nazi resistance in Europe during the 30’s and 40’s with a focus on how art can be used to influence and define the struggles of subjugation and opposition. The album closes with the magnificent piece "The Mirror Black" and I realize that this is the end of a stunning album, well-done guys!

Sum: "To Drink From The Night Itself" is nothing more than a technically accomplished work of art and it consolidates AT THE GATESs status as one of Sweden's premier melodic death metal bands.

Enjoy today's tune!

George Harrison - My Sweet Lord

Sunday, time for a classic.

When George Harrison wrote "My Sweet Lord" in late 1969, THE BEATLES were still officially together, so Harrison gave the future inductee to their friend and Apple Records label mate, Billy Preston.

Five months later, THE BEATLES had disbanded, and with Preston’s version failing to score much attention, Harrison reclaimed the number and recorded it for his debut solo album "All Things Must Pass".

Though he wasn’t keen on a single getting issued, preferring the undiluted impact of a triple album, "My Sweet Lord" was released in late 1970 and soon thereafter, became an international No. 1 hit.

It was the first song by a former BEATLE to soar to the top, and it was the biggest seller of all the singles to be released by any of the four solo BEATLES in the ‘70s.

The million-selling single featured some famous Harrison friends -- including Preston, Eric Clapton, and Ringo Starr. Still, it's success was quickly followed by legal controversy. Turns out Harrison’s song sounded a lot like Ronnie Mack’s "He’s So Fine", which THE CHIFFONS had scored a hit in 1963. A prolonged copyright infringement suit followed, resulting in the court finding Harrison guilty of “subconsciously” copying the tune.

Regardless, Harrison believed that because "My Sweet Lord" sounded like a pop song, it had the power to sneak up on the listener, and he was right. The song's numerous “Hallelujah’s” and “Hare Krishna” chants became part of the mainstream, creatively pushed into the culture by an ex-BEATLE with a gentle spirit and a slide guitar.

Enjoy today's tune!

Hardcore Superstar - Baboon

"Baboon" was recorded at Österlyckan Studios just outside of Gothenburg. The tune has a great mixture of attitude and debauchery, amazing catchiness that will stip in your head forever. The video has once again partnered with the acclaimed Swedish filmmaker Max Ljungberg to produce a hilarious '70s cop-themed promo, complete with car chases, shootouts, and powdered donuts!

Birch Hill Dam - Coming Apart

"Coming Apart" is a tune taken from the 3rd full-length "Reservoir" from Fitchburg, Massachusetts based heavy stoner rockers BIRCH HILL DAM. Features 6 new tracks and two live songs are taken from a soundboard recording. CDr is housed in a glossy slipcase with full artwork and liner notes on the back. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered July-September 2014. Produced by Peter Rutcho & Birch Hill Dam.

"Reservoir" is a great rocker, a combination of intense, compassionate, guitar wielding, vocal slinging, thunder drumming, bass slaying musicians determined to entice your soul and bang your head. It's a cool mix of southern rock and metal with bluesy and groovy tunes. Check out today's tune and you will get the drift.

All the energy behind BIRCH HILL DAM is brought to you by five outstanding musicians that know you are in the mood to rock; Mike Nygard on vocals, Sam Barrett and Alex Sepe on Guitars, Matt Neely on Drums and Pete Gelles on Bass.
