Guerilla Poubelle - Le Casse Du Siècle

Saturday, time to wake up your French skills with the French punk band GUERILLA POUBELLE.

The band was formed in 2003. The name translates to "Dustbin (Garbage Can) Guerrilla" in English.

Their lyrics are based on anarchist and existentialist beliefs and the band are DIY enthusiasts, lead singer and guitarist Till being behind the record label and concert promoter Guerilla Asso founded in 2004.

The band formed as a four-piece, following the break of ska-punk band LES BETTERAVES. The band originally incorporated a painter who painted and provided backing vocals during shows. Their debut album, entitled Il Faut Repeindre Le Monde… En Noir (The world Must Be Repainted… In Black) was released in 2005.

The have released numerous splits and EPs, as well as four albums, releasing music on their own Guerilla Asso, Asian Man Records and Crash Disques. The band has toured widely (France, Europe, Japan, Canada, USA) and played over 1 000 live shows.

GUERILLA POUBELLE has consistently refused to register with the French royalties collection society SACEM, in line with their values, despite selling a significant number of records for an independent band. The band have remained consistent over the years in playing mostly fast, short punk rock songs sung in French, with Till Lemoine's vocal delivery urgent and gritty.

Antho : bass
Paul : drums

Till says: "(We) do not want our music consumed like yogurt. I want people to be open-minded and not to swallow every word I pronounce... Too many in the French punk scene act this way and for me, they are just slaves."

"When you tell people to recycle, they tell you "oh thats great, how good of you!" It's not great or nice, it should be fucking normal."

Today's tune "Le Casse Du Siècle" is taken from the bands latest release "L'ennui", 2020. The tune translates to "The Heist of the Century", and is about the gap between the ruling class and the stockholder is getting smaller every day. In France and everywhere else those partners in crime are emptying our welfare funds and breaking our public services up. The economy is trying to justify this but it’s all about profit for a chosen few. We should be working for us.

The clip is filmed at la Maroquinerie on 30.01.20, enjoy!

Hyborian - Driven By Hunger

The incisive and anthemic metal on the Kansas City-based HYBORIAN's 'Vol. II' is rich with propulsive riffs, lean, and infectious arrangements. Join The Traveller for the explosive force of "Planet Destructor", the rampaging "Driven By Hunger" (see it below), and the abounding arsenal of "Stormbound". HYBORIAN bears down hard on their mission for sonic conquest, and sophomore album 'Vol. II' is nothing short of world-class metal. Channeling the energy of stoner legends like HIGH ON FIRE and CROWBAR, while injecting progressive elements all their own, HYBORIAN is heavy beast, check it up.

Inter Arma - Southern Man

Thursday, time for a cover.

Today's tune "Southern Man" is a song by Neil Young from his album "After The Gold Rush". The album was released in 1970.

The cover is made by the US sludge band INTER ARMA, who celebrate their past on "Garbers Days Revisited", their new covers record, recorded in between tours in support of their critically acclaimed 2019 full-length "Sulphur English". The record, named after the band's practice space, was once again tracked at Dark Art Audio in Madison, TN. INTER ARMA show off their wide array of influences, tackling covers by NINE INCH NAILS, CRO-MAGS, PRINCE, NEIL YOUNG, VENOM and MINISTRY in the INTER ARMA garb. "Garbers Days Revisited" sees INTER ARMA redefining the very aspects of the music that inspired and influenced them from their very beginnings.

"Hunter Thompson used to punch out pages of Ernest Hemingway on his typewriter "just to get the feeling of what it was like to write that way," drummer T.J. Childers comments. "The same can be said for anyone learning a great cover song: there's a lot to be deduced from the information there. Actually learning the songs can lead to inspirational, new musical ideas."

T.J. Childers - Drums
Steven Russell - Guitars
Trey Dalton - Guitars
Mike Paparo - Vocals
Andrew Lacour - Bass

INTER ARMA's inspiration can indeed be felt throughout the 8 tracks therein; from the melancholic, spoken intro leading to the explosive, riff-heavy take on the Neil Young classic "Southern Man", (hear it below) to the nearly pitch-black metallic approach of HÜSKER Dü's "The Girl Who Lives On Heaven Hill", every song on "Garbers Days Revisited" captures the sounds that make INTER ARMA one of the scene's most unique and creative bands.

Childers continues, "Covers have been an integral part of Inter Arma since the beginning of the band and some of these songs have a direct lineage while others are a little more... obscure. As timing would have it, we hope this provides a bit of an escape for listeners, given the surreal circumstances we're in at the moment, because after all, great art should provide an escape which is part of why we chose to do this: sometimes you just wanna be runnin' down a dream..."

"Garbers Days Revisited" will be released tomorrow, 10th of July. Enjoy today's tune.

Loviatar - Horse In Thrall

The Canadian quartet, LOVIATAR, returns embracing the notion of the difficult second album and diving headfirst into a whirlpool of oppressive imagery and existential dread to present their sophomore album "Lightless".

With a heavy dose of post-metal and some gothic touches for good measure, Loviatar have created a sound that is distinctively theirs.

LOVIATAR (pronounced low-vye-ah-tar) whose sound borrows equally from the hazy gloom of MY BLOODY VALENTINE, the cinematic psychedelic landscapes of WOVENHAND and the crushing riffs of ISIS. Clearly sung vocals, equal parts somber and soaring, set them apart from others in the genre.

Thunderous elements of doom and post-metal contrast with hypnotic moments of atmospheric introspection. Their art is inspired by the mysteries of ancient mythology: the band takes its name from an ancient Scandinavian death goddess and frequently evokes themes of epic fantasy in their imagery and lyrics.

Formed in 2010, LOVIATAR has independently released a series of singles and EPs, and have been tapped to support such acts as RED FANG, SKELETONWITCH and BLOOD CEREMONY.

LP pressing - 500 copies on Midnight Black with White Spackle.

Recorded at Wolf Lake Studios by Andrew Robillard. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Mike Bond.

Today's tune "Horse In Thrall" is taken from the second album "Lightless", enjoy
