Death In June - All Pigs Must Die

Sunday, time for a classic.

DEATH IN JUNE are a neofolk group led by English folk musician Douglas Pearce, better known as Douglas P. The band was originally formed in Britain in 1981 as a trio, but after the other members left in 1984 and 1985 to work on other projects, the group became the work of Douglas P. and various collaborators. Douglas P. now lives in Australia.

Over the band's three decades of existence, they have made numerous shifts in style and presentation, resulting in an overall shift from initial post-punk and Industrial Records influence to a more acoustic and folk music-oriented approach. Douglas P.'s influence was instrumental in sparking neofolk, of which his music has subsequently become a part.

"All Pigs Must Die" is an album by DEATH IN JUNE, released in 2001. The first half of the album bears the typical later DEATH IN JUNE neofolk sound, whereas the second half of the album has a much more chaotic, experimental sound to it. On the album Pearce was assisted by Andreas Ritter of the neofolk group FORSETI who played accordion on a few tracks on the first half of the LP. This marked a return to the previous folk sound of DEATH IN JUNE.
DEATH IN JUNE have also appeared live with FORSETI and Pearce appeared on Forseti's Windzeit LP.

Enjoy today's tune!

Nyt Liv - Hårde Tider

Continue from yesterdays 10th Years Celebration of the festival "Copenhell".

The second tune is "Hårde Tider" (Hard Times) that was written by NYT LIV (New Life) bassist Søren Hvidt, which is also played by NYT LIV with the help of musicians from RISING and HATESPHERE. Søren Hvidt says the following about the song: "We were given some framework for the project, and we have not tried that before. Among other things, there should be room for a guitar chase, a solo and some recognizability. Our songwriting is usually very dynamic and focuses on how we make room for the various instruments. After all, we are not a decidedly guitar solo band, so how should we find space for them? There should also be a chorus so that our musical concept was stretched a great deal. It is also one of the longest numbers we have ever been involved in making", says Hvidt.

Ti År I Helvede ep was released digitally on Friday, April 5 and on vinyl on April 19, 2019. The vinyl edition is severely limited and is available in 333 neon green and 333 black copies respectively - a total of 666 copies. And yes, the publishers, the record label Indisciplinarian, insist on calling it an ep, even though it only contains two songs, but that is to emphasize that these are two equal songs.

This years festival was takes place on days 19-22. June with major names like TOOL; SLIPKNOT and SCORPIONS.

Omvendt Korstog - Ulvens Ed

Did you know that this year, was the 10th anniversary for the Copenhell festival. Shit what times flys, remmeber the first years, been there and all I can say it's a cozy rock festival, just enough peoples that visist it and a good bunch of bands that plays there every year.

Anyway, I bumped into an EP with that celebrates its 10th anniversary, been in the flow of music for a some time, never really got to play it. But now I did, found out that a number of Danish rock and metal musicians have teamed up to make a tribute ep for the festival. It has become the all-star band Reverse Crusade and the ep Ten Years in Hell with the two songs "Ulvens Ed" (Wolf's Oath) and "Hårde tider" (Hard Times), which pay tribute to the festival's dedicated audience. Two songs on two day, why not, so tomorrow we play "Hårde tider" with NYT LIV

The music for "Ulvens Ed" (The Wolf’s Oath) is written by the two Danish rock veterans Tim Christensen (DIZZY MIZZ LIZZY) and Jacob "Cobber" Binzer (D-A-D), who play guitar and bass respectively on the song, with Casper Popp (BERSÆRK on vocals, Allan Tschicaja (PRETTY MAIDS) on drums and Niklas Sonne (DEFECTO) on lead guitar. Together they call themselves OMVENDT KORSTOG (Reverse Crusade). Lars Evers (BERSÆRK) has written the lyrics.

"Ulvens Ed" is both a musical and a lyrical attempt in capturing the spirit of COPENHELL. It is a special feeling of togetherness and sympathy for each other mixed with some beer and adventure. It is a very special world. After all, it is the most peaceful festival everl, so the song is in some way a singalong or love letter to COPENHELL about the fellowship that people experience at both the festival and in the whole environment. It is a battle cry for a peaceful community”, tells Jacob Binzer (D-A-D).

Copenhel festival was on June 19-22 2019, in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Vocals: Casper Popp
Guitar: Tim Christensen
Bass: Jacob “Cobber” Binzer
Drums: Allan Tschicaja
Lead Guitar: Nicklas Sonne

"Ulvens Ed" was Recorded at Hansen Studios, Ribe, January 2019. Production, mix & mastering: Jacob Hansen. Lead guitar recorded at Sonne Studios. Executive producer: Toke Holt.

Enjoy today's tune taken from the EP "Ti År I Helvede".

Charm City Devils - Man Of Constant Sorrow

Thursday, time to play a Cover of a traditional tune.

"Man of Constant Sorrow" (also known as "I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow") is a traditional American folk song first published by Dick Burnett, a partially blind fiddler from Kentucky. The song was originally titled "Farewell Song" in a songbook by Burnett dated to around 1913. An early version was recorded by Emry Arthur in 1928, which gave the song its current titles.

There exist a number of versions of the song that differ in their lyrics and melodies. The song was popularized by THE STANLEY BROTHERS, who recorded the song in the 1950s, and many other singers recorded versions in the 1960s, most notably by BOB DYLAN. Variations of the song have also been recorded under the titles of "Girl Of Constant Sorrow" by JOAN BAEZ, "Maid Of Constant Sorrow" by JUDY COLLINS, and "Sorrow" by PETER, PAUL and MARY. In 1970 the song was recorded by GINGER BAKERS AIR FORCE, with vocals by Denny Laine, and reached No. 85 on the Billboard Chart.

Public interest in the song was renewed after the release of the 2000 film "O Brother, Where Art Thou?", where it plays a central role in the plot, earning the three runaway protagonists public recognition as the SOGGY BOTTOM BOYS. The song, with lead vocal by Dan Tyminski, was also included in the film's highly successful, multiple-platinum-selling soundtrack. This recording won a Grammy for Best Country Collaboration at the 44th Annual Grammy Awards in 2002.

Today's version of "Man Of Constant Sorrow" is made by the Baltimore, Maryland hard rock band THE CHARM CITY DEVILS. The band was founded by singer/songwriter and former CHILDs PLAY and SR-71 drummer John Allen and includes bassist Anthony Arambula, drummer Jason Heiser, and guitarists Victor Karrera and Nick Kay (also of CHILDs PLAY). The band was first signed to Eleven Seven Music in 2009. After signing with Eleven Seven Music, MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist and Eleven Seven Music chairman, Nikki Sixx, suggested the band's current name CHARM CITY DEVILS.

On January 25, 2012 CHARM CITY DEVILS released the single, a cover of "Man Of Constant Sorrow," from their album release "Sins" on new label Fat Lady Music.
