Speed Queen - Church Avenue

Saturday, get ready for a heavy metal attack!

SPEED QUEEN from Belgium plays high speed, energetic, bitchin' heavy metal. Call it whatever you want: 80's revival, new wave of Belgian heavy metal or just straight up rock 'n roll...our amps go to eleven!

So grab your leather jacket and put on your sister's jeans, that's heavy metal if you know what I mean!

Five guys, a bar and a shitload of beer. That’s how SPEED QUEEN was formed in 2014. What started as a drunken idea soon escalated into a fast, energetic band destroying stages all over Europe (so far). A rockin’ mixture between speed and heavy metal combined with a nasty and sexy stage attitude is what you’ll get. Still, these guys stick to their guns, which in this case means alcohol.

After three years of hard work and over one hundred gigs, SPEED QUEEN released their first EP, "King Of The Road", in April 2017. It was met with many great reviews and a sold out release show. With this six track EP, SPEED QUEENs rollin’ like a freight train.

In 2019, SPEED QUEEN released a MLP, "Still On The Road", featuring two brand new songs and two hard-hitting live recordings from a show in their home town, Hamont. Physical release available from High Roller Records.

Band Members:
Thomas Kenis - Vocals
Andreas Stieglitz - Guitar
Tom Neeskens - Guitar
Lander Savelkoul - Bass
Toon Driezen - Drums

Today's tune "Church Avenue" is taken from "Still On The Road", enjoy and have a wonderful Saturday evening.

Rebel Wizard - Raiseth Up All Those That Be Bowed Down

REBEL WIZARDs negative metal is an anarchic alchemical process of outsider energies respecting the power of traditional triumphant metal into a unique sound to smash out the coerced gloom and banality of our times.

REBEL WIZARD hailing from Melbourne, Australia and is a one man show of NKSV's work. Playing a caustic blend of black, thrash and heavy metal full of occultism and fantasy in his lyrics. Their latest full length, "Magickal Mystical Indifference" is an intressing piece and the noxious brew of styles can make it hard to get a grip but after a few spins it reaching its apex, just check out today's tune and you will get the grip.

Today's tune "Raiseth Up All Those That Be Bowed Down" is taken from "Magickal Mystical Indifference" is full of excellent riffs and fabid vocals, enjoy!

Motörhead - God Save The Queen

Thursday, time for a cover.

"God Save the Queen" is a song by the British punk rock band the SEX PISTOLS. It was released as the band's second single and was later included on their only album, "Never Mind The Bollocks", Here's the SEX PISTOLS. The song was released during Queen Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee in 1977.

The record's lyrics, as well as the cover, were controversial at the time, and both the BBC and the Independent Broadcasting Authority refused to play the song. The original title for the song was "No Future", with the lyrics themselves being a general expression of the band's view of the monarchy or any individual or establishment commanding general obligation.

The single was released on 27 May 1977, and was regarded by many of the general public as an assault on Queen Elizabeth II and the monarchy. The song's title is taken directly from the national anthem of the United Kingdom of the same name. At the time, it was highly controversial for its equation of the queen with a "fascist regime" and for the lyric "there is no future in England's dreaming". According to Glen Matlock, who had co-written the song—although he was no longer a member of the band by the time it was released—the bass was inspired by The Move's "Fire Brigade".

Although many believe it was created because of the Silver Jubilee, the band have denied it, with Paul Cook saying that "it wasn't written specifically for the Queen's Jubilee. We weren't aware of it at the time. It wasn't a contrived effort to go out and shock everyone." Johnny Rotten has explained the lyrics as follows: "You don't write 'God Save The Queen' because you hate the English race. You write a song like that because you love them, and you're fed up with them being mistreated." He intended to evoke sympathy for the English working class and a general resentment towards the monarchy.

On 7 June 1977 — the Jubilee holiday itself — the band attempted to play the song from a boat named the Queen Elizabeth on the River Thames, near the Palace of Westminster. After a scuffle involving attendee Jah Wobble and a cameraman, 11 people, including Malcolm McLaren, the man who organised the concert, and several other members of the band's entourage, were arrested when the boat docked.

Today's version is with MOTÖRHEAD and the tune can be found on "Under Cöver", the covers compilation album, released on 1 September 2017.

Lord Vigo - At The Verge Of Time

Even as a dyed-in-the-wool heavy metal band, you can only go that far with historical or fantasy lyrics. For this very reason LORD VIGO – named after Lord Vigo von Homburg Deutschendorf from the movie "Ghostbusters II" – changed tack when it came to writing and recording "Danse de Noir" by moving away from traditional sword and sorcery subject matter in favor of retro science fiction with a tinge of film noir.

The Germans’ fourth release turned out to be a true concept album with countless narrative segments and interludes in between songs that each represents “a memory implanted into the mind of our female protagonist Nihlai, a replicant within the Blade Runner universe.

Like their famous namesake "Vigo von Homburg Deutschendorf", they are evil, loud and paranormal!

The army of angry spirits upon the Earth to deliver Epic Doom Metal with NWoBHM-guitar harmonies and scatterbrained organs. A ghostly vague chimera of sound destined to haunt you.

Clortho (Vinz) - Vocals, Drums, 
Tony (Scoleri) - Guitar, Bass, 
Zildrohar (Volguus) - Guitar, Bass, 
Nunzio (Scoleri) - Guitar, 
Zuul - Bass, 
Ivo (Shandor) - Drums

Today's tune "At The Verge Of Time" is taken from the latest album "Danse de Noir" via High Roller Records.
