Soup - Sleepers

Today's tune "Sleepers" is a real beauty, emotional, sensitive and humble, a tune that can bright up this dark evening.

The tune is made by Trondheim based multi instrumentalist Erlend Viken and his band SOUP. The band was created in 2004.

SOUP consists of:

Erlend - Vocals, keys and samples
Espen - Percussion
Jan Tore - bass
Ørjan - Guitar

The tune is taken from SOUPs seventh studio album "Remedies" and a musical journey a bit different from the previous ones. Diving into a more jam oriented landscape, the band experiments with 1970’s prog elements while mixing them with the established Soup sound: dynamic, melancholic and melodic, enjoy!

Barren Womb - Drive-Thru Liquor Store

The Trondheim noise rock duo BARREN WOMB is an interesting combo, with their latest album "Old Money / New Lows" and loads touring they finally find their way into Tune Of The Day.

Armed with nothing more than drums, guitars and their voices, they rely mostly on crude dynamics and the power of the riff to hammer their point across. Since their inception in late 2011, the Nordic Heavy Noise Rockers have been raising both eyebrows and hell with their minimalistic approach, earsplitting volume and defiant experimentation. The duo, comprising singer/drummer Timo Silvola and singer/guitarist Tony Gonzalez, make efficient use of crude dynamics and the power of the riff to hammer their point across.

The album was recorded live and mixed by Håkon Gebhardt (MOTORPSYCHO, Bertine Zetlitz, Ida Jenshus), with mastering duties handled by Keijo Niinimaa (ROTTEN SOUND, MORBID EVILS). Adorning the cover is an original painting by artist and longtime collaborator Ole Spangrud. "Old Money / New Lows" was be released February 16th 2018 limited vinyl, digital and on CD, through Spartan Records/Loyal Blood Records.

In today's tune, you will hear Tony desperately howls "You’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive" on the slow-burning tune "Drive-Thru Liquor Store", setting a menacing tone while at the same time paying homage to an old country hero.

Fire Down Below - Hymn Of The Cosmic Man

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

The Belgian group FIRE DOWN BELOW has with their second album release "Hymn Of The Cosmic Man" made themselves one of the most interesting grungier space rock band out there at the moment, where influences from classic bands like KYUSS and TOOL runs in their veins, a good mix in other words. Heavy distorted riffing, melodic harmony, cleaver vocals around a superb rhythm section with tricky and neat variation in the structures makes this album a treat for your ears.

From the grandiose and doomy instrumental opening tune "Red Giant" and the faster paced rocker "Ignition/Space Cruiser" sets trail how wildly this album sprawls, almost that they looses track of them self but manages to remain on the edge. "Saviour Of Man" is a catchy and wild rocker, "The Cosmic Pilgrim" is a swelling, gritty thing to the opposite atmospheric and softer tune "Nebula". "Ascension" opens up with a babbling guitar sound, that slowly builds up before it levels up in a soft crescendo until it's time again. The album closer "Adrift In A Sea Of Stars", is monster the clocks in just over 11 mins, the tune is made in two parts where the first half have a rockier approach and the second is more progressive and instrumental with superb lead melodies and interesting musicianship.

That this follow up to the 2016 debut, "Viper, Vixen, Goddess, Saint" is a big step forward, well done guys. "Hymn Of The Cosmic Man" was released on June 8 via by Ripple Music. The album was mixed by Brad Boatright (WINDHAND, SUNN O))), BELL WITCH)

Sum: A grandeur Belgian release that should check up!

A beautiful Vinyl release of the album

Sam Nuytens on the drums
Jeroen Van Troyen on rythym guitar and vocals
Kevin Gernaey on lead guitar
Bert Wynsberghe on the bass guitar

Today's tune is the rocker "Saviour Of Man", enjoy!

Elton John - Rocket Man

Sunday, fathers day, yes I got breakfast this morning from the kids, lovely :)

Time for a classic for this rainy Sunday on the eleventh day in the eleventh month and eleven o'clock.

Today's tune "Rocket Man" (officially titled "Rocket Man (I Think It's Going to Be a Long, Long Time)") is a song composed by Elton John and Bernie Taupin and originally performed by John. The song first appeared on John's 1972 album "Honky Château" and became a hit single, rising to No. 2 in the UK and No. 6 in the US.

The song was inspired by the short story "The Rocket Man" in The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury, and echoes the theme of David Bowie's 1969 song "Space Oddity" (both recordings were produced by Gus Dudgeon). But according to an account in Elizabeth Rosenthal's book His Song: The Musical Journey of Elton John, the song was inspired by Taupin's sighting of either a shooting star or a distant aeroplane.

The song describes a Mars-bound astronaut's mixed feelings at leaving his family in order to do his job. Rosenthal's account goes on to relate that the notion of astronauts no longer being perceived as heroes, but in fact as an "everyday occupation", led Taupin to the song's opening lines: "She packed my bags last night, pre-flight. Zero hour: 9 a.m. And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then."

Musically, the song is a highly arranged ballad anchored by piano, with atmospheric texture added by synthesizer (played on the recording by engineer Dave Hentschel) and processed slide guitar. It is also known for being the first song in John's catalog to feature what would become the signature backing vocal combination of his band at the time, Dee Murray, Nigel Olsson and Davey Johnstone.

The first stanza of "Rocket Man" was thought of by Bernie Taupin whilst he was on the motorway heading to his parents' home; he had to "repeat it to himself for two hours," which was "unfortunate", but in later interviews he said that since it gave him a hit, it was all worthwhile.

The song has been a staple of John's concerts. Among numerous other performances, John played "Rocket Man" at the launch site of Space Shuttle Discovery in 1998.

The song includes the line, ""And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then". The website Schmoop commented, "The phrase "high as a kite" is a common idiom almost always used to refer to drug use. There's nothing to suggest that lyricist Bernie Taupin really intended the double entendre, but the song did come out at the peak of stoner '70s culture. The usual meaning of the expression, which Taupin would have been familiar with, is highly intoxicated.

In his own interpretation of Elton John’s iconic hit, Iranian filmmaker and refugee Majid Adin reimagines “Rocket Man” to tell a new story of adventure, loneliness and hope. The Cut, proudly supported by YouTube, invited filmmakers to create the first official music videos for three of Elton’s most famous songs:

Gotthard - Stay With Me

The Swiss hard rock band GOTTHARD released their twelfth studio album "Silver" on 13 January 2017 through G Records. The album was intended to celebrate the band's 25th anniversary, and its name is a reference to a silver wedding anniversary. The album produced one single, "Stay With Me", released on 18 November 2016, a big and powerful tune, delivers a sophisticated rock explosion and hits the sweet spot between half ballad and monumental hymn, see it below.

GOTTHARD is a Swiss hard rock band founded in Lugano by Steve Lee and Leo Leoni. Their last eleven albums have all reached number 1 in the Swiss album charts, making them one of the most successful Swiss acts ever. Singer Steve Lee died in a motorcycle accident on October 5, 2010.

On November 11, 2011, Gotthard announced a new singer, Nic Maeder, through their official Facebook page and their website with their new song "Remember It's Me"

The band today:

Nic Maeder – vocals
Leo Leoni – guitars, production
Freddy Scherer – guitars
Marc Lynn – bass
Hena Habegger – drums

Enjoy today's tune that grows bigger from chorus to chorus, and Nic’s fateful encounter with “good” and “bad” becomes a superbly staged rock fairy tale, partly he reminds me of David Coverdale.

King Buffalo - Centurion

Friday and finally this week is over, got 2 days off, the hole weekend, whoa!! This evening, almost by my self, a glutefree beer, some music spinning on the stereo and I feel free, happy and totaly relaxed, even if im dead tierd after a hard week at work, the music in the space make me enjoy life so much. Got a little flash back earlier today, was thinking of KING BUFFALOS show that they did earlier this year here in Sweden, a magical time, so when I came home it was time to air the vinyl a bit, a spin of the "Repeater" EP with Rochester, psychedelic/heavy blues band KING BUFFALO.

An EP that is an magical minimalist drone rumble at it's best. Almost 25 minutes of the finest of KING BUFFALO. 3 tunes which slides like the best beer, so smoothly through the mouth, through the throat down to the stomach and finally ends up in the toilet an hour later. Except for the last sentence. The last tune on the EP "Centurion" is a true magnificent piece that invades your ears with heavy driving riffs and a familiar groove. Psychedelic, blues and stoner overtones combine with thunderous bass and drums, reminiscent of heavy 70’s rock. A wall of sound, a trio of soaring sounds, and an unrelenting pace merge to form their own musical styling.

So enjoy today's tune, I will for sure.

Here is a live clip from the same tour, but in Norway at Parkteatret in Oslo, 26.04.2018!

Haunt - Burst Into Flame

From the creator of BEASTMAKER comes the thunder and lightning to HAUNT the nation.

The Fresno based heavy metal band HAUNT has released their highly anticipated debut album, "Burst Into Flame" on Shadow Kingdom Records.

Hailing from the United States, HAUNT began as the work of modern renaissance man Trevor William Church. SON OF MONTROSE / Sammy Hagar solo bassist Bill "The Electric" Church, the California native came to prominence as the vocalist/guitarist of doom-lords BEASTMAKER, who've released two critically acclaimed albums on Rise Above. However, as HAUNT, Church went solo and created a bewitching brew of classic, turn-of-the-'80s heavy metal, drawing deeply from the momentous NWOBHM movement.

He proved just how proficient and powerful his vision is with HAUNT's 2017 debut EP, "Luminous Eyes", which was originally self-released but then picked up for a physical release by Shadow Kingdom not long after. In between releases, Church has expanded the lineup to include fellow BEASTMAKER guitarist John William Tucker and the rhythm section of bassist Matthew Wilhoit and drummer Daniel Wilson.

You will "Burst Into Flame" when you put the new album on a spin, traditional heavy metal at it's best.

Today's tune is the title tune from the latest album "Burst Into Flame". The Video is filmed live at Church of the 8th Day & Spaceland @ The Echoplex, Los Angeles, CA. 4-16-2018. Enjoy!

Opeth - Demon Of The Fall

The Swedish progressive metal legends OPETH have released "Garden of the Titans: Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre" on November 2nd via Moderbolaget Records / Nuclear Blast Entertainment. This historic event was captured for the DVD, Blu-Ray and Vinyl formats during their performance May 11th, 2017 at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, CO. Both the DVD and Blu-ray formats include CDs containing the audio as well.

Video footage for "Garden of the Titans" was overseen by The Deka Brothers (CARPENTER BRUT, THE PRODIGY) and audio was mixed by David Castillo (KATATONIA, BLOODBATH). All versions feature the masterful artwork of revered artist Travis Smith (NEVERMORE, KATATONIA, TESTAMENT).

Always an unstoppable force for uniqueness amid a sea of generic swill, OPETH has been setting the rulebook ablaze, and ploughing a uniquely progressive and exploratory furrow for over 25 years now. Neither conforming nor exhibiting any desire to be restricted to a single genre, OPETH, quite simply, has a time honored tradition of blowing our minds with both class and forward thinking. All these years later, nothing and everything has changed once again with their most recent album, "Sorceress".

"Sorceress" was released in September 2016. For the band's first effort for Nuclear Blast via OPETH's imprint label Moderbolaget Records, the group returned to Rockfield Studios in Wales, also home to pivotal releases from QUEEN, RUSH and JUDAS PRIEST, where the Swedes had tracked "Pale Communion" in 2014 with Tom Dalgety.

Today's tune "Demon of the Fall" taken from the new live album, originally released on third full-length studio album "My Arms, Your Hearse", released August 1998, enjoy!

Greta Van Fleet - Anthem of the Peaceful Army

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

"Anthem of the Peaceful Army" is the debut studio album by American rock band GRETA VAN FLEET. The album was released on October 19, 2018, recorded at Blackbird Studios, Nashville, Tennessee and follows the band's original two EP releases, "Black Smoke Rising" and "From the Fires".

The two first EPs has been spinning a lot in my home, work, car, I do like what I hear. That the band have a big influence from LED ZEPPELIN can be heard on every single tune, bit's and pieces here and there, vocals, solos, clothes, lyrics that they almost would be a carbon copy of ZEPPELIN, but with their own way of doing it and with the new album "Anthem of the Peaceful Army", they begun to shift away from LED ZEPPELIN. Although this sounds a lot of ZEPPELIN, so be it. Some may think they've crossed the border, creating songs on ZEPPELIN, so be it. The fact that ZEPPELIN borrowed a lot from old heroes, even if things were snitched right of the table to create something to their own, that was ok, then this should also be ok as well. As I have ZEPPELIN as my musical-gods, I think it's with great fun when others try to create the same feeling they had even if it sounds similar, there are many examples of bands that have borrowed the sound of ZEPPELIN.

"Anthem of the Peaceful Army" is an Absolutely superb album! The album has many great tunes from the beautiful and grand half paced opener "Age Of Man", followed by the rocker "The Cold Wind" and the uptempo single "When The Curtain Falls". "Watching Over", have a classic hard rock touch, slow with tasty guitar licks. "Lover, Leaver" is another uptempo piece with a great feeling to the past to the more acoustic guitars driven tunes "You're The One" and "The New Day", the first one with a country feeling and the second with a blues one. More blues rock in "Mountain Of The Sun", with catchy guitar licks and powerful vocals to a more darker turn in "Brave New World", mournful guitars riffs and grievous vocals. The album closes "Anthem", a loveful ballad that touches your soul. That fantastic vocal, great guitar playing, tight rhythm section and the ZEPPELIN vide carry this album by these youngsters that overall kicking the mainstream ass with a pure rock album.

Sum: A Peaceful Army is a classic rocker that you shouldn't miss!

Today's tune "Lover, Leaver (Taker, Believer)" live from the John Anson Ford Theater in Los Angeles on June 24, 2018. Enjoy!

Bad Company - Feel Like Makin Love

Sunday, time for a classic.

"Feel Like Makin' Love" is a song by British supergroup BAD COMPANY. The song originally appeared on the LP "Straight Shooter" in April 1975 and was released as a single in August of the same year.

Paul Rodgers started to came up with the lyrics at a camp in California while touring the US with Free. He was 19 years old. After several years, Rodgers played it to BAD COMPANY guitarist Mick Ralphs who threw in that big chord in the chorus - the muted 'duh-duh' that marks the shift from country ballad to chest-beating rocker. This was at the end of 1969 and Paul Rodgers was a long way from home. While chart success still eluded the FREE vocalist and his band at this point, their reputation on the UK blues circuit had been enough to earn a string of dates on the American West Coast supporting BLIND FAITH. One particular afternoon the band had pitched up at a sun-dappled hippie commune outside San Francisco where Rodgers, still in his teens and more familiar with the industrial smog of his native Middlesbrough, felt the muse strike.

BAD COMPANY are an English hard rock supergroup formed in Westminster, London in 1973 by two former FREE band members—singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke as well as MOTT THE HOOPLE guitarist Mick Ralphs and KING CRIMSON bassist Boz Burrell. Peter Grant, who managed the rock band LED ZEPPELIN, also managed BAD COMPANY until 1982.
