Endless Boogie - Back In '74


Meet ENDLESS BOOGIE, the best-kept secret in New York's rock scene. They have a pretty cool name (taken from John Lee Hooker's 1971 album).

They have released a new animated video for album track “Back in ’74”, which tells the story of Kiss playing at a kite festival in St. Louis, where he was injured on an acid trip.

They just want to rock with you, preferably all night long. "We try boogie sometimes, but boogie's hard," says guitarist Jesper Eklow (aka "The Governor") self-effacingly. "Boogie takes skill and we haven't honed those skills yet." The band's sound is a meltdown of metal, psychedelic and classic rock with a heavy dose of riffage, a kick-ass beat and super-cryptic lyrics. It's thunderous and mellow at once. To put it another way, it goes well with beer.

Aside from Eklow, the band is made up of Paul Major (aka "Top Dollar") on guitar and vocals, Mark Ohe (aka "Memories from Reno") on bass and Harry Druzd on drums. Needless to say, their collective knowledge of music is so expansive it's a little scary.

ENDLESS BOOGIE did a team up with legendary Swedish psych outfit TRÄD, GRÄS OCH STENAR a few weeks ago for a US tour, including stops at Cropped Out Festival, Ohio’s Wexner Center and New York’s Music Hall of Williamsburg. This will be ENDLESS BOOGIEs first extensive US tour since the release of 2016’s "Vibe Killer", which Uncut Magazine called “a masterclass in choogling.”

Today's tune "Back " is taken from the latest album "Vibe Killer", The tune is based on a true story! Animated by Micah Buzan, enjoy!

High On Fire - Electric Messiah


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

"Electric Messiah", the eighth full-length studio release for the Oakland, California-based metal band HIGH ON FIRE led by Matt Pike.


Matt Pike (vocals/guitar), Jeff Matz (bass), and Des Kensel (drums)

HIGH ON FIRE has once again hired the producer Kurt Ballou, to assist in the album making of "Electric Messiah". The trio has really challenged themselves to evolve their beloved creation to something really marvelous and interesting.

The album opens of by a blast of bombast metal, straight into the face with "Spewn From The Earth". Then to the nine minutes of wonderful monotone and grinding riffing in "Steps Of The Ziggurat/House Of Enlil", a monstrous piece that you will play more than once. The title tune "Electric Messiah", with lyrics written reportedly to paying tribute to the legendary Lemmy Kilmister and it's like a MOTÖRHEAD tune on 45 rpm, fast and unmistakable galloping with a loud and raging fury. The sinister melody of "Sanctioned Annihilation", a ten and half minute masterpiece with pummelling tribal rhythms will keep you on track, being the longest song HIGH ON FIRE have ever written. The more metal jamming tunes like "The Pallid Mask" and heavy riffing "The Witch And The Christ" makes the old days shine true with a clean Matt Pike behind the michrophone. The aesthetic high-octane rocker "God Of The Godless". "Freebooter" is a thunderous piece, fast and full of rage riffing with blistering drums and a breakneck rhythm. The melodic closer "Drowning Dog" is a real upswing, more classic and catchy in the hole, great riffing, great vocals, great drumming, inventive rhythms that make this tune a great standout tune at the end of a marvelous album. The album has eleven hard-hitting tunes that will please you as a listener from start to finish, great job guys.


Sum: Don't miss this album, it's a knockout!



Enjoy "Electric Messiah"!

Judas Priest - Living After Midnight


Sunday, time for a classic.

By 1980, more than a decade into their career, JUDAS PRIEST were ready to take on the world. With the release of their sixth album, the classic "British Steel" and the single "Livin After Midnight" they were really delivering the goods.



The song title came about when Glenn Tipton awakened Rob Halford with his loud guitar playing at 4 AM, during the band's stay at Tittenhurst Park to record British Steel. Halford commented to Tipton that he was "really living after midnight", and Tipton replied that Halford's comment was a great title for the song he was working on.

On live performances, the line, "I took the city 'bout one a.m.", is sometimes changed to the particular city or venue the band is performing. For example, on the DVD Rising in the East, lead vocalist Rob Halford sings, "I took the Budokan 'bout one a.m.", in reference to the stadium in Tokyo, Japan, that hosted the concert. On the Westwood One recording from the 1983 US Festival Halford recites, "I took some acid about 1 a.m ..."


The music video, directed by Julien Temple and shot live at the Sheffield City Hall, begins with drummer Dave Holland playing an invisible drum kit. During the guitar solo, fans on the front row play along with their cardboard guitars (which were the prominent fan symbols of the new wave of British heavy metal movement).

This song has been covered by THE DONNAS on their album "The Donnas Turn 21" (2001), by Saul Blanch on the tribute album Acero Argentino: Tributo a Judas Priest (2006), by L.A. GUNS on Hell Bent Forever: A Tribute to Judas Priest (2008) and by IRON SAVIOR as a bonus track on the Japanese release of their Condition Red (2002) album.

It was covered by DISTURBED on the Tribute to British Steel (2010) CD by Metal Hammer UK music magazine, incorporating the opening drum salvo from "Painkiller". It also appears as one of the bonus songs available with some distributions of "Asylum" (2010), and also features on their B-sides compilation album "The Lost Children" (2011).

The guitar solo in the song is played by Glenn Tipton.


The song packed a real one-two punch that woke up U.S. fans to the power of the Priest. "Livin After Midnight", with its simple, almost KINKS-like riff, was a perfect melding of metal and pop, in the best sense of both worlds. In just over three minutes, Priest packed all the power of their metallic sound into a simple, direct pop track. Leaving behind earlier, more complicated songwriting, the band turned in a riff, melody and driving beat that was irresistible to rock radio. Record buyers also got hooked, giving JUDAS PRIEST their first major hit.

Enjoy!

Ghost - Dance Macabre


GHOST has released "the perfect love song for that special demon in your life", an erotic dance video of the tune “Dance Macabre”

“Dance Macabre” is the second music video and radio single from the Grammy-winning rock/pop band's most recent album "Prequelle"

GHOST recently sold out the very prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London, and METALLICA just announced the Swedish band will be special guest on its 25-date European stadium tour next summer. GHOST will headline its two-act "A Pale Tour Named Death" fall North American tour that starts in Dallas on October 25. The North American trek includes two headline arena shows, The Forum in Los Angeles, and New York City's Barclays Center, see all the dates below.

The video is also notable as it tells the backstory of GHOST frontman “Papa Emeritus,” and how he got his iconic look. A woman seduces one of the men, who emerges with “Papa’s” iconic face paint and punches him in the eye creating a blue and bloodshot left eye. The song itself touches on how many people coped with the Black Plague in Europe back in the 14th century by dancing and partying until they died. In other GHOST news, a lawsuit filed against GHOST mastermind Tobias Forge by former bandmates was dismissed in a Swedish court. The judge ruled in favor of Forge, forcing the ex-GHOST musicians to pay the frontman’s legal fees.

Today's tune “Dance Macabre”, Director: Zev Deans (who also helmed GHOSTs “Square Hammer”) Producer: Kiley Coleman, enjoy!

Pallbearer - Run Like Hell


Thursday, time for a cover.

After nearly 18 months in the works, Magnetic Eye’s massive dual-release homage to PINK FLOYD, The Wall (Redux) and the Best of PINK FLOYD, is nearly here, set to be released in the end of November.

From the album "The Wall (Redux)" have the Arkansas doom metal band PALLBEARER put thier teets in the iconic Floyd classic, "Run Like Hell", here did they got the chance to really think outside the box and make thier own version with galloping, up-tempo, early-Maiden-esque classic-rock hard rock, sounds splendid. Instead of David Gilmour's simple reverb-heavy guitar lick, the melodic-doom quartet opts for a chugging, churning approach, leaning heavily on the gallop that exists in the original and bringing it to the forefront.





"Run Like Hell" is a song by the English progressive rock band PINK FLOYD, written by David Gilmour and Roger Waters. It appears on the album "The Wall", 1979. It was released as a single in 1980.

The record company Magnetic Eye Records is behind the re-envision PINK FLOYDs concept masterpiece "The Wall" in its entirety from end to end in sequence, featuring some of the most iconic artists in heavy music today alongside some of the most exciting newcomers. Joining PALLBEARER are names that range from the MELVINS to Mark Lanegan to RUBY THE HATCHET, each taking one of the album's classic cuts. Check out the full track listing below.

A good rule of thumb for covers is don't do them — unless you are either 1) completely revamping the song and giving it a different feel and sound, or 2) improving on the original. PALLBEARER has definitely achieved No. 1, and only time will tell if PALLBEARER have done No. 2, but we'll be damned if they aren't pretty close.

I'll Be Damned - You Are The Young


Danish God Damned Rock’n’Roll band, I’LL BE DAMNED have released a new album "Road To Disorder", from the album, a single and a video for "You Are The Young" have found its way out on the net, see it below.



I’LL BE DAMNED was founded in Aarhus, Denmark in 2010. They quickly started to make a fuss with their energetic live shows, which showcases four guys delivering a thunderous foundation for the enigmatic, howlin’ and preaching frontman, Stig Gamborg.

I’LL BE DAMNED is pissed off about politics, religion, the media and society in general. Armed with influences such as CLUTCH, DOWN and RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, the band fuses a potent yet melodic and groovy punch in your face with lyrical sharpness and unifying paroles – with an attitude, great swing in the tunes make I’LL BE DAMNED a fun band to rock to.

Despite playing a lot of shows in their own right, I’LL BE DAMNED has supported the likes of METALLICA, D-A-D, AIRBOURNE, and STEEL PANTHER as well as they have been featured on a lot of festivals home and abroad – among others Copenhell and Rock Harz.



The band consists of:

Stig Gamborg - Vocals
Mathias Smidt - Drums
Kristian Sloth - Guitars
Boris Tandrup - Guitars
Jens Lunde - Bass

Today's tune "You Are The Young" is taken from the latest release "Road To Disorder", released August 31st, 2018, enjoy!

The Freeks - American Lightning


Los Angeles band, THE FREEKS, know that as the Earth revolves the sun and the Universe infinitely expands, it must be shared with as many different kinds of life as there are stars. A bold statement coming from a bunch of FREEKS. This is not a new concept, however, an ever-recurring one dating back to Ezekiel’s biblical account to even further back with evidence from ancient Egypt and Mayan times. After 4,000 years the theory continues strong as we enter 2018.

THE FREEKS also enter 2018 with the completion of "CRAZY WORLD", their fourth full length “LP” and second release for Italian based HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS RECORDS. A studio record with eight songs that take you on a psychedelic journey from hidden moonlit distilleries all the way up to the Mothership and back down to Mother Earth. It could have happened in 2700 BC and it’s definitely happening again now as THE FREEKS continue to ferment their ethanol infused fuzz rock, bead their songwriting to reflect a heavier content and extract added amounts of psychoactive chemicals from the minds of their listeners.


THE FREEKS consists of: Ruben Romano (founding member of FU MANCHU and NEBULA) returns at the helm supported by Bob Lee on drums (CLAW HAMMER, MIKE WATT), Esteban Steban Chavez on Keys, Jonathan Hall on Guitar (BACKBITER) and introducing the latest Freek on Bass, Ray Piller (BIBLICAL PROOF OF U.F.O.’s).


Today's tune "American Lightning" taken from the album "Crazy World", featuring the ripping guitar leads by Ray Hanson (from legendary THEE HYPNOTICS), enjoy!

Strängen - Rock På Svenska


Monday, time for "Record Of The Week".

"Rock På Svenska" is the postumt album by Strängen. During his career, he played guitar in HELLACOPTERS. Now one and a half years after his death, a new album with Strängen's original ideas is released.

The Story about the album.

Chips Kiesbye tells us that "Strängen" came home to him once a week, for six months. The seatings were like a mix of therapy meetings and songwriting. They reviewed each line of text and discussed what he wanted to say with the songs. They also set up their own "dogma rules". That means that all words must be true and right from the heart. No worn-out rock clichés was allowed. In December 2016 they considered having a really strong ready written album. They selected some of the songs that felt most obvious and booked the studio for a first session. It was not necessarily the strongest songs they chose first, but songs that they thought were appropriate to begin with. Unfortunately, it was only one session so they did not do everything they had imagined to do. Another things came in between.



Last year Robert "Strängen" Dahlqvist was taken away from us. He suffered from epilepsy. And just a few days after he had been in the studio together with the band, he got a strike at home in the bathtub and drowned. The producer Chips Kiesbye, known from SATOR, spoke with "Strängen" relatives. Together they decided to finish the recordings on the basis of the ideas "Strängen" and his band had been talked about during all the discussions and planning meetings. "Rock On Svenska" is the result of this work.


"Rock På Svenska" is a rocker with a great swing, in the native language he sings sensitive with very  personal lyrics about his upbringing, it's real, it's honest, it's true.  The album opens up with "Thriller" a real rocker, dirty AC/DC riffs, catchy chorus,  the tune is about that he is scary and fragile. "Farsan Söp Ihjäl Sig" is a fast paced rocker with a real sad story about his alcoholic dad. After that, it is very appropriate to ask "E de OK", he says that he is fine, everything is OK, but "All feelings gets into tears / When the air goes out " he sings. A sensitive tune. The pace goes up a notch in the rocker "Inte Min Vän".  The loving "Din Hand" is a great sunny reminder of all the things that's are nice in life. A nice melody thats accompanied by beautiful guitar riff. "Rocken É Inte Död" is a cool rocker about the radio the plays synth pop and not great rock music that his. "Bangatan" is a powerful and melody-strong rocker that was released as a single a couple of years ago. The album ends with the captivating tribute to the daughter, "Ingrid", a beautiful piece that reaches its emotional culmination.

 "Rock På Svenska" is a relaxed and strong 80's embossed rockalbum that is delivered so much heart and is emotionally charged and naked that "Strängen" can remain and receive all the praise for a job well done.

Sum: This album is a beautiful and worthy monument of a talented musician who was pulled away from life too early.

Today's tune "Rocken É Inte Död" is taken from "Rock På Svenska".  The video is a live recording from Record Store Day, Little §shop of records here in Stockholm April 16th 2016 Enjoy!

Doobie Brothers - Listen To The Music


Sunday, time for a classic.

"Listen to the Music" is a song recorded by THE DOOBIE BROTHERS on their second album "Toulouse Street". This tune was THE DOOBIE BROTHERS' first big hit in 1972, it remains a concert staple and is one of The Doobie Brothers' biggest hits.[citation needed] This song is usually played as the last song at THE DOOBIE BROTHERS' concerts. It was written by Tom Johnston, who also played guitar on the track.

Tom Johnston says about this time: "It was all based around this somewhat Utopian view of the world. The idea was that music would lift man up to a higher plane, and that world leaders, if they were able to sit down on some big grassy knoll where the sun was shining and hear music - such as the type I was playing - would figure out that everybody had more in common than they had not in common, and it was certainly not worth getting in such a bad state of affairs about. Everybody in the world would therefore benefit from this point of view. Just basically that music would make everything better. And of course I've since kind of realized it doesn't work that way."








The studio recording used both a banjo and a prominent flanging effect, audible from the bridge until the fadeout. When released as a single by Warner Bros.

The commercial success of "Listen to the Music" helped the album "Toulouse Street" rise on the charts. The song remains a staple of adult contemporary and classic rock radio. The band also uses it as an encore song during live shows. Patrick Simmons, the second guitarist and vocalist in the group, sings the bridge of the song.

During the 1982 Farewell Tour, the song was the last one played on the set list as the encore with drummer Keith Knudsen singing the lead vocal.

Enjoy today's tune!

TNT - Not Feeling Anything


Hard rock and heavy metal lifers will certainly be no strangers to the history and longevity of Norwegian rockers TNT. 36 years after they were formed in Trondheim, TNT is still very much alive and kicking. Albums like "Knights of the New Thunder", "Tell No Tales" and "Intuition" still stands firmly as classics in international rock history. After celebrating the 30th anniversary of "Tell No Tales" in 2017, the band released its 13th studio album, aptly named "XIII" released on June 8, 2018 on Frontiers Music.



The album "XIII" features founding members Ronni Le Tekro (guitar) and Diesel Dahl (drums) alongside bassist Ove Husemoen, and new vocalist Baol Bardot Bulsara, who has replaced the recently departed Tony Harnell. Baol is a stunning Spanish vocalist whose debut with the band happened in front of 8000 rabid fans in November 2017 when the band opened for German hard rock legends the SCORPIONS in Oslo, Norway. Not only did Boal survive this trial by fire, but he did so with flying colors!

Today's tune "Not Feeling Anything" is taken from "XIII", enjoy!

Gudars Skymning - Grodans Sång


The northern Swedish rockers GUDARS SKYMNING released a brand new instrumental album "Grodans Sång", recorded just a few months after the monumental album "V". Just as the latest albums, this record was done at Malmer Productions in Umeå, Sweden. This time, 3 days of tinkering with tractor snow chains, Old Ox empties, Marshall cranked shaku flutes, bacon steaming fuzz drenched guitars, blaring drums, and seasoned neighbours did the trick. "Grodans Sång" contains 8 instrumental beautiful pieces of music, with which the band proves to be more than the umpteenth hard rock band and I can recommend this album to every music lover.




GUDARS SKYMNING with roots in the heavy rock of the '60s and' 70s, blues, folk, and the Swedish prog. The band took their first steps in 2006 and recorded their self-titled demo.

Today's tune is the title track from the latest album "Grodans Sång".

MaidaVale - Deadlock


"Madness Is Too Pure" is the second album from Swedish MAIDAVALE. The band took Europe with storm with captivating performances and their critical acclaimed debut album "Tales From The Wicked West".


The music on ”Madness Is Too Pure" is deeply rooted in the monotone union between the rhythm section of Johanna Hansson and Linn Johannesson and the hypnotizing vocals of Matilda Roth. Adding Sofia Ströms dazzling guitar playing gives depth to the musical landscape of MAIDAVALE. "Madness Is Too Pure" moves MAIDAVALE closer to bands such as NEU!, AMON DUUL II, PUBLIC IMAGE LTD, and SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES.

The album was produced and mixed by Jari Haapalainen who has previously worked with artists such as Ed Harcourt, CAMERA OBSURA, JOHNOSSI, SAHARA HOTNIGHTS, TRUE MOON, and THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY. The album was recorded during six days in November 2017 at The End Studio outside of Lund, Sweden, engineered by Tommy Tift (VÅNNA INGET, TRUE MOON).

Did you know that Maida Vale is an affluent residential district comprising the northern part of Paddington in west London, west of St John's Wood and south of Kilburn. Maida Vale has been used for the filming of a number of films and television programmes: Certain scenes in the 1966 film Georgy Girl were filmed outside a canal-side house on Maida Avenue. Several scenes from Paddington (2014) were filmed in Maida Vale, including using the tube station (mocked up to appear to be the fictional 'Westbourne Oak' station) and a police chase on Castellain Road. In the television adaptation of Ian McEwan's novel The Child in Time the family was depicted as living in Maida Vale and several of the exterior scenes were shot around Elgin Avenue. Scenes from The Mummy (2017) starring Tom Cruise were shot in the Warrington pub in Maida Vale. Scenes for film In Darkness (2018) starring Natalie Dormer were filmed at a flower shop (made to appear to be a coffee shop) on Lauderdale Parade. Scenes from The Romanoffs TV series (2018) were filmed at Paddington Academy in 2018

Church of the Cosmic Skull - Science Fiction


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

The British CHURCH OF THE COSMIC SKULL is one of the most notable emerging psychedelic rock bands in the underground scene lately. With the second full-length album "Science Fiction". The album was released May 18, 2018.

CHURCH OF THE COSMIC SKULL is a twofold entity: a new religious movement who seek to free mankind from their material possessions and unify all living beings into a singular cosmic whole; and a 7-piece supergroup based in Nottingham UK playing Prog/Psych/'70s Rock/Pop.

The combination of guitar, Hammond organ, electric cello, bass, and drums is a tip of the hat to the MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA sound, but with six-part QUEEN-esque vocal harmonies, ABBA choir, GHOST melody, and THIN LIZZY pop-rock structures.

"Science Fiction" is a really fun, great sounding album with excellent tunes. It opens up with the half paced title tune "Science Fiction", organ-assisted riffs, choir vocals sing about 'the man with the silver hair', it accelerates in the choruses. Guitars and organ startup "Go by The River", with a smooth and groovy harmony, cleaver and excellent vocals arrangement make this a treat for your ears, same goes with the "Cold Sweat", a deep bassline along with a picking guitar riffs, Lynott-style vocals along with beautiful vocal toppings. "Revolution Comes With An Act Of Love", deep guitars, with lovely riffs, groovy organs, marching vocals that are not laughing to the fool. "Timehole (Gonna Build A Rocket Tonight)" is a hyperactive, desperate rocker, to the bluesy grooves in "The Cards That You’re Playing". "Paper Aeroplane & Silver Moon" starts off slowly with a church organ, naked vocals before it freakout to some psychedelic mayhem. Some lovely ballads can be found on the album like in "The Others" and album-ending "The Devil Again", both with some mournful organ chords, rich and nick picked guitars and lovely solo along with a soulful vocal performance.

"Science Fiction" is carefully arranged with astounding and flawless vocals, catchy song harmonies. That CHURCH has found a perfect combination to make an excellent and fun album that can brighten up your gray everyday life and with cool cover with the rainbow-filled artwork that makes your day.

SUM: If ABBA would have played some rock approach tunes, it might have sounded like this.





CHURCH OF THE COSMIC SKULL are:

Guitar & Vocals - Brother Bill
Keys and Vocals - Brother Michael
Vocals - Sister Caroline
Vocals - Sister Joanne
Drums - Brother Laurence
Bass & Vocals - Brother Samuel
Cello & Vocals - Sister Amy

Today's tune "Cold Sweat" is taken from "Science Fiction", enjoy!

The Police - Roxanne


Sunday, time for a classic.

"Roxanne" is a song by English rock band THE POLICE. Written by lead singer and bassist Sting, the song was released in April 1978 as a single from their debut album "Outlandos d'Amour".

THE POLICE were a British rock band formed in London in 1977. For most of their history the band consisted of Sting (lead vocals, bass guitar, primary songwriter), Andy Summers (guitar) and Stewart Copeland (drums, percussion). THE POLICE became globally popular in the late 1970s and early 1980s and are generally regarded as one of the first new-wave groups to achieve mainstream success, playing a style of rock influenced by punk, reggae, and jazz. They are also considered one of the leaders of the Second British Invasion of the United States. They disbanded in 1986, but reunited in early 2007 for a one-off world tour that ended in August 2008.

This song is about a man who falls in love with a prostitute. Sting got the idea after walking through the red-light district of Paris when the band was in town to play a club called The Nashville, where he saw prostitutes for the first time. He imagined what it would be like to fall in love with one of them, figuring some of them must have boyfriends.



The intro to the song contains one of the great happy accidents in rock history. There was an upright piano in the studio, which Sting sat on thinking the lid was closed. Tape was rolling for his vocal, so the sound of his butt hitting the piano and his subsequent laughter were recorded. These sounds were mixed into the intro, providing a unique texture.

Sting chose the name Roxanne because it has a rich history behind it. Roxanne was the name of Alexander The Great's wife and Cyrano de Bergerac's girlfriend.




In 2008, "Roxanne" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

Enjoy today's tune!
