Yellow Devil Sauce - Zulu

Greece's rockers YELLOW DEVIL SAUCE has released a brand new album, "Zulu".

Thousands of miles away from the US west coast and a certain rainy city that spawned a handful of bands in the 90’s, lives a trio, hotter than the spicy sauce it’s named after. Don’t let their youngish looks fool you, YELLOW DEVIL SAUCE have been at it for more than a decade and are still going strong. It all started in 1999 when Alex (guitars, vocals), George (drums) and Costas (bass) got together and started rehearsing. The talent was apparent and the 1st place in a Battle of the Bands type of contest was granted very soon. “DeskJob” demo was released in 2001, giving a taste of the band’s main ingredients, a massif rhythm section, adventurous guitar lines, amazing vocal delivery. With influence of TOOL, NIRVANA, and the Seattle scene, in general, was obvious but well received as the band was too good at it.

Besides the aforementioned work, the band has participated in 3 Spinalonga comps and played alongside many great acts like the BELLRAYS and DUB TRIO and TRUCKFIGHTERS.

Now in 2018, the mighty sauce has returned to crush eardrums with their new full-length album, "Zulu".

Enjoy today's tune, the title track from "Zulu".

Palace Of The King - Get Right With Your Maker

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

The Australian rockers PALACE OF THE KING have released their third full-length album, "Get Right With Your Maker".

Their style of music brings back some good old rock ‘n’ roll that has the bluesy feels of the 70s and with "Get Right With Your Maker" they have a broader palette than before and steps in many styles and decades and they are doing it with bravura.

"Get Right With Your Maker" is a 10 tune stomper of pure bluesy rock 'n roll that will sting you like a fishing hook already on the first slow notes in the opening track "I Am The Storm", it's 7 minutes of magic, where Tim's vocal is just stunning, the melody is catchy and moves so smoothly true and in the middle part the tune flows out that you almost get's lost in the storm of weather psychedelia that reminds of THE DOORS. "It’s Been A Long Time Coming" is a more an album opening choice than the previous tune, here you get a 80's party rocker like WINGER, RATT and CINDERELLA. "Sold Me Down the River" is a chunky piece, with a catchy lyrics. "A Dog With A Bone" is a groovy southern rock tune, funky guitars, and organs. "Said the Spider to the Bird" is a great piece of old-school BLACK CROWES with groovy keys. "Move Through The Fire" have a heavier sound with classic melody and catchy riffs. "The Serpent" has a great HENDRIX intro, groovy riffs, and excellent solo. "Horizon" is another groovy rocker with a really cool hook. "Fly Like An Evil" is a heavy piece, chunky riffing, nice flavor in the melody. "Back On My Feet Again" closes the album with a real supurb catchy rocker, heavy feel blended with bluesy guitars and melodies. Once again these guys show that they are real musical talents and that hard work really does pay off.

The album was released on March 23rd via Golden Robot Records.

Tim Henwood – Vocals/Guitar
Sean Johnston – Keys/Guitar
Travis Dragani – Drums
Anthony Licciardi – Bass

Sum: A great bluesy rock album that is worth checking out.

Today's tune "It's Been A Long Time Coming", taken from "Get Right With Your Maker", enjoy!

Dismember - Dreaming In Red

Sunday, time for a classic.

"Dreaming In Red" is a tune by the Swedish death metal DISMEMBER, taken from the second album "Indecent & Obscene" by Dismember. The album is accompanied by two music videos for the tracks "Skinfather" and "Dreaming in Red". It's also their best-selling album to this day.

Like many of the other Scandinavian death metal bands, DISMEMBER began softening their sound in the mid-1990s, with 1995's "Massive Killing Capacity" more melodic approaches, which had a good public response. Nevertheless, they attempted a return to style with 1997's "Death Metal", which ultimately became a sales disappointment. Their last album for Nuclear Blast was 2000's "Hate Campaign".

Anyway, enjoy today's tune "Dreaming In Red"

Underoath - On My Teeth

The Tampa rockers UNDERØATH are back with a their eighth album "Erase Me", released via via Fearless Records on April 6, 2018.

It is their first album in eight years following "Ø (Disambiguation)" (2010), marking the longest gap between two studio albums in the band's career, and their first one with founding drummer and clean vocalist Aaron Gillespie since Lost in the Sound of Separation (2008). It was recorded in mid-2017 with Matt Squire and mixed by Ken Andrews.

Upon announcing the album, the band updated their Spotify biography to read: "The band who once openly—and without apology—professed their faith-based worldview onstage nightly, have since moved beyond the realm of seemingly impenetrable polemics. At various junctures, "Erase Me" illustrates those moments of sanctuary, anxiety, betrayal and conflict that inevitably arise when humanity grapples with belief systems."

Drummer Gillespie said of the album, "We've had success and we've come through a lot of waters. There's been 11,000 things we've been through so you would think, almost rhetorically, 'What do you need now?' All of us are finally in that place in our lives where the only thing we care about is inclusion for everybody—for the world. For me, exclusion is the scariest thing in the world. And I think Underoath coming back now with a new record—which none of us thought was possible—we want people to know that this is your music and you can feel however the fuck you want about it. I just want to prove that we are doing everything in the most honest way we ever have. This is the healthiest we've ever been as a group of people, as musicians, and in our worldview."


Timothy McTague – lead guitar, backing vocals, bass
Christopher Dudley – keyboard, synthesizer
Aaron Gillespie – drums, clean vocals, piano
Spencer Chamberlain – lead vocals, additional guitars
Grant Brandell – bass
James Smith – rhythm guitar

Paganizer - Prey To Death

Swedish heavyweights PAGANIZER release an album that defies logic. Having been around for nearly two decades, their music has only gotten faster and heavier. "Land of Weeping Souls" is undeniably their fiercest and tightest yet. Fresh from the success of their recent EP on the same Indian label, this new album, their 10th full length, is a huge leap ahead. Each of the songs retains the classic Swedish riffing appeal and is enhanced by accelerated drumming, heaving hooks, and even a rabid thrash metal influence. In the words of Rogga Johansson himself, "the new album is the best PAGANIZER album, death fucking metal the way it is supposed to be done".


Rogga Johansson - Guitars, Vocals (ECHELON, DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN, JOHANSSON & SPECKMANN, etc.)
Kjetil Lynghaug - Lead Guitars (ECHELON, MORDENIAL)
Matte Fiebig - Drums (PORTAL, MORDENIAL)
Martin Klasen - Bass

Obituary - Brave

Florida-based death metal veterans OBITUARY released their eponymously titled tenth studio album on March 17, 2017, it's also the second Relapse release.

A video for the opening tune "Brave" have been made, see it below. The clip, which depicts the band enjoying a day of practice and backyard shenanigans at their home studio outside of Tampa, Florida, was directed by Shaun Egger.

After parting ways with Roadrunner following the release of 2005's "Frozen In Time", OBITUARY released two albums via Candlelight Records — 2007's "Xecutioner's Return" and 2009's "Darkest Day" — before signing with Relapse Records in 2014.

OBITUARY is an American death metal band formed in October 1984 in Tampa, Florida. Initially called EXECUTIONER, the band changed their name to XECUTIONER in 1986 to avoid confusion with the thrash metal band EXECUTIONER from Boston, and then changed their name once again to OBITUARY in 1988. The band's current lineup consists of vocalist John Tardy, lead guitarist Kenny Andrews, rhythm guitarist Trevor Peres, bassist Terry Butler, and drummer Donald Tardy. Obituary has gone through several lineup changes, with Peres and the Tardy brothers being the only constant members. The band was a fundamental act in the development of death metal music and is one of the most successful death metal bands of all time. To date, OBITUARY has released ten studio albums, and with the exception of their 1997–2003 split, they continue to perform live around the world.

Today's tune "Brave" taken from the self titled album, released 2017, enjoy!

On March 16th, RIVERS OF NIHIL released their third full-length, "Where Owls Know My Name", via Metal Blade Records.

Lik - Carnage

Monday, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

"Carnage" is the followup of the debut album "Mass Funeral Evocation" by the Swedish death metal band LIK (which fittingly means corpse in Swedish).

"Carnage" is a un-dead creation which offers a plate of savory old school death metal, a rare gem in the metal genre of classic Swedish death metal. This album contains the all the basics of the dirty and distorted sounds of maggots and seeds, spiced up with insane buzzsaw guitar tones, a filthy vocal that fits extremely well, something that is hard to get! The melody is mixed with insanely heavy riffs from them all. The sound is clear and crisp even if it's distorted like hell... Chris drumming hits the toms hard and fast and at the right time, the snare sounds gorgeous and the guitars... I get freaking goosebumps, well done Nille and Tomas. It's simple and complex at the same time, the perfect mix to create a wonderful time with the stereo, car or in your head with in-ears.

"Carnage" kicks of with a guitar driven intro before the rest of the gang joins the crusade "To Kill", it's a big slab in your face tune with a great sense in the melody, heavy angry riffing and a furious vocal. "Rid You Of Your Flesh" is the first single and continues to smack the listener in the face, by now you should start turning blue :) "Celebration Of The Twisted" rolls over all the dead bodies like a bulldozer, impossible to stop. "Dr Duschanka", second single and today's tune, continues the path between heaven and hell. "Left To Die" have a doomish feel and runs in half pace before it accelerates to a more heavier classic rock tune, harch and cruel! "Cannibalistic Infancy" is a quick beast, heavy precision blast beats and a marching speed. "Death Cult" is a classic sounding fast death metal piece that makes you grin like a kiddo. "The Deranged" is a half-paced tune, heavy distorted riffs, slow drumming and downtempo but excellent vocals. Then we turn the page to something different in "Only Death is Left Alive", were they forces the path with a huge machete, the tune also has an amazing guitar solo. "Embrace the End" wraps up the bag with coagulated bloody ribbons, you can feel the smell of rotten corps that oozes out from the cracks and all you want to do is spin it one more time. "Carnage" is a memorable album, much because of the musicianship between these yents and they have managed to create an essential piece of modern Death Metal!

Sum: "Carnage" is a freaking monster!

"Carnage" was released May 4th through Metal Blade Records. Behind the recording, we find once again Lawrence Mackrory and the topping is made by Daniel Bergstrand at the famous Dugout studios in Uppsala.

Band Members:

Chris Barkensjö – drums & vocals
Tomas Åkvik – vocals & guitars
Niklas “Nille” Sandin – guitars & bass

Nazareth - Hair of the Dog

Sunday, time for a classic.

"Hair of the Dog" is the title track of NAZARETHs 1975 album "Hair of the Dog". It is sometimes called "Son of a Bitch" because of the repeated lyric in the hook ("Now you're messing with a son of a bitch"). The song is about a charming and manipulative woman who can get men to acquiesce to her every need. The singer is letting her know that she has met her match in him, a self-described "son of a bitch."

"Hair of the Dog" uses a talk box extensively during its bridge. The song's title, which does not appear in the lyrics, is a pun ("hair of the dog" = "heir of the dog" = "son of a bitch"). The Girls Aloud song "Sexy! No No No..." features a sped-up sample of the song's guitar riff. The band is given a writing credit for the sample.

As a standalone song, it only charted in Germany, where it peaked at #44. In the United States, because the "Hair of the Dog" album was a top-20 hit on the album charts, the song received extensive airplay on album-oriented rock stations (despite "bitch" being a borderline profanity) and remains in the playlist of most classic rock formatted stations. In the USA, it was released as the B-Side of Love Hurts.

The song has been covered by many bands. GUNS N' ROSES recorded it on their 1993 album "The Spaghetti Incident?". This version features the signature guitar riff from THE BEATLES "Day Tripper" as a gag at the end. The song is on the BRITNEY FOX album "Boys in Heat". STONE RIDER covered the song on their 2008 album "Three Legs of Trouble". It has also been covered by PAUL DI'ANNO, THE MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP, and WARRANT.

The original version of the song is featured in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned. The song was also used in The CW show Supernatural in a Season 2 promotional advertisement.

Enjoy today's tune where the video were NAZARETH performing their classic from Euro TV "Spotlight" circa 1976.

Here is a live clip from the Show Of Nazareth in Live Hoston, 1981

Clutch - Gimme the Keys

Maryland rockers CLUTCH are tentatively set to release their new album, "Book Of Bad Decisions", in September 7. The album was recently completed at Sputnik Sound studio in Nashville, Tennessee with producer and engineer Vance Powell (THE WHITE STRIPES, RED FANG).

CLUTCH have released the first taste from the album "Gimme the Keys", see the lyric video below.

Here's the story behind "Gimme the Keys".

The song is about the band's first tour back in 1991, a time where they began to cut their teeth in the live music business, dealt with show cancellations and incidents on the road. One particular show in a shed surrounded by cornfields in Lawrence, Kansas ultimately turned ugly over a missing microphone and accusations brought by drunk and gun-toting security people at the end of a long day. "Gimme the keys they can keep the guarantee | Gimme the keys and get the hell out of dodge" is a reflection of the mood of that night.

Today's tune "Gimme the Keys LV", taken from the upcoming album "Book of Bad Decisions", enjoy!

Witchery - True North

"True North" was the first single from the latest album "I Am Legion" by the Swedish blackened Thrash Metallers WITCHERY. A video was made, see it below, produced by Niklas Sundin / Cabin fever media.

As with the previous album, "I Am Legion" was created in the WITCHERY line-up consisting of Angus Norder (Vocals), Jensen (Guitar), Rickard Rimfält (Lead Guitar), Sharlee D'Angelo (Bass) and Chris Barkensjö (Drums). The album was also produced and mixed by Daniel Bergstrand at Dugout Studios (BEHEMOTH, IN FLAMES, MESHUGGAH) and comes packaged in powerful artwork by Andreas Diaz Pettersson.

WITCHERY guitarist Jensen checked in with a comment about the upcoming album as follows:

"The first few days after the release of "Nosferatu" (the first single from 2016's "In His Infernal Majesty's Service" album) I was quite taken aback. There had been so many years between the releases of "Don't Fear The Reaper" and "Witchkrieg" (4 years) and then an additional 6 more years between "Witchkrieg" and "In His Infernal Majesty's Service" that I hardly thought anyone remembered WITCHERY anymore...

We got our s*** together for "IHIMS" in order to celebrate the band's 20th anniversary. We wrote new songs and got a few new members so we could make the album happen and have it released in 2016. But that was the goal; to merely celebrate the band's 20 years of existence. Then, after "Nosferatu" was released, this massive wave of appreciation started to surface. When the full album dropped in November 2016 we experienced a surge of positive feedback on the rest of the album as well. I mean, we all loved the album and knew it was good, but we were thrilled to see that also other people heard what we heard; that it was a great album and that this line-up had both the chops and riffs needed, displaying them with an enthusiasm and bravado perhaps not seen since maybe the early days of the band's existence!

Those of you who saw us play at Wacken a few weeks ago got to hear the world premiere of the song "True North", which will be the first single from the new album. We are very excited about "I Am Legion" and we hope this release shows that WITCHERY, albeit after 20 years of existence, isn't going to fade away. On the contrary, WITCHERY is more likely entering the most productive phase yet in the band's career!"

Jensen continued by adding the following comment about the album's first single:

""True North" is somewhat of a different song compared to what WITCHERY usually puts out. Maybe that's why we made it the first song on the new album? Regardless, it's a song that we in the band all really like and that most likely will become a regular in our live set."

Today's tune "True North" taken from the latest album "I Am Legion" released, Nov 10th 2017, enjoy!

Ball - Ball

Monday, new week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"!

"Ball" is the self-titled debut album by the Swedish rock band BALL.

"Ball" is intensely disturbed, dirty, smut peddling, Swedish slime hard rock-psych-madness from the deepest cesspool of humanity. Fucked up subhuman fuzz guitars. Depraved, screaming vocals. Gut rumbling bass and caveman drums. A nightmare of revolting sounds. "Ball" is hard rock psych from hell!

A colorful backstory adds an extra frisson to any rock’n’roll tune so we won’t dig too deep under BALLs claim that their leader Syre Ball was previously "behind some extremely subversive underground occult groups". Whatever the truth, their first long-player certainly has a thrilling touch of evil.

Formed by the mysterious S. Yrék Ball, previously known to some from the murky occult underground of Northern Europe’s most infamous secret societies, formed BALL. Yrék has now dedicated himself to making music and to live the good life outside of the covens and black magic orders. Backed by his two older brothers they form a fierce and fearsome power trio. The guys aren’t very talkative but say their main interests, apart from banging on their instruments, are booze, girls, horror comics, monster model kits, pinball and arcade games.

From the first tune "Balling" to the last "Galaxy 666" a lot of things happens, it's crazy, but with a hell of a groove, it's a fun trip to hell. Almost like a soundtrack from a 60's action movie. "Satanas" is the longest tune, filthy psychedelic SABBATH riffing, depraved, screaming vocals. "Speeding" have a more furious approach with it's punkish powerful riffing. "Fyre Balls", heavy riffing with a funky groove, see the video below.

The LP inside of the gatefold cover contains explicit X-rated material. Buy at your own risk! Also includes a poster.

The Ball brothers are:

Yrek. Ball - guitar, keyboards and vocals
F.S. Ball -- bass
M.F. Ball - drums

Sum: BALLs debut album is a crazy hard rock tour-de-force that makes you lose your breath.

Today's tune "Fyre Balls", enjoy!

Chicago - Stay The Night

Sunday, time for a classic.

"Stay the Night" is a song written by Peter Cetera and David Foster for the group CHICAGO and recorded for their album Chicago 17 (1984), with Cetera singing the lead vocals. Upbeat and rock-oriented, it was the first single released from that album.

This song is also remembered for its music video, filmed in and around the Los Angeles River. It shows Peter Cetera chasing a hard-to-get lady, played by Ingrid Anderson with Debbie Evans as stunt double, and features car-chases, notably featuring a red convertible Oldsmobile 442, and various stunts which Cetera supposedly performed himself. It was directed by Gilbert Bettman, Jr.

CHICAGO lead singer Peter Cetera wrote this with the Canadian songwriter David Foster. In the song, Cetera is trying to convince a girl to enjoy a night of casual sex. Cetera and Foster also wrote the album's hit "You're the Inspiration."

The video has a message: if you proposition a lady stunt driver and she isn't interested, take no for an answer if you know what's good for you. In 1984, it was rare for videos to have these theatrical qualities, and this video was also unusual as it presented an ending to the song that is not apparent when listening.

Directed by Gil Bettman, the video was overseen by Jeff Ayeroff, who was the creative director at Warner Bros. Records, which distributed CHICAGOs albums at the time. It was the first CHICAGO video to get regular airplay on MTV, and the first concept video they made (they had done some live videos). CHICAGO came late to the MTV party, and got little attention from the video for "Hard to Say I'm Sorry," which focused on the band performing the song in what looks like an art gallery. Ayeroff said in the book I Want My MTV: "They weren't exactly a current act. I thought that if I could create a car chase in their video, and the car got wrecked, how could MTV not play it? And it worked." Musically, this was a huge departure from the organic, horn-based CHICAGO sound of the '60s and '70s. You won't hear a horn on this one, but you will hear processed drums, especially at the beginning as the song opens with a series of big, clipped beats - something Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins had been doing.

The drums were done by Jeff Porcaro, who according to Roger Linn, was the best in the business when it came to drum programming. Porcaro, a member of Toto, was brought in by producer David Foster to craft the track, which gave them precise control over the instrumentation. This was bitter fruit to fans of CHICAGOs earlier work, but it was the cutting-edge hit sound of 1984 and kept their string of hits going. CHICAGOs drummer, Danny Seraphine, found himself on the sidelines for this one (as well as "You're the Inspiration"), and he wasn't happy about it.

Enjoy today's tune.

Batushka - Yekteníya IV

Yesterday did the Polish extreme orthodox rockers BATUSHKA visit Sweden and Stockholm for a show at Nalen. A band that I became familiar with at the beginning of last year when I ran into their debut album. Read the review here! I was there with to friends and hade a pretty good evening.

The Pilgrimage tour is a pretty fun spectacle, much like you think you can expect from these guys. Imagine GHOST, though much darker, you're right close. Here you will get a Priest (BATUSHKA), who lights the candles, wiggles with his incense censer, holy water brush, the icon of "Litourgaya". An orthodox choir behind masks gives the show a great spirit and mystics, the sound was pretty good, the instruments were clear, and crisp in the position I was standing at, the light is the only thing I could whine over, simply too overworked to keep the mystery up, so most of the show became flat and boring in all flashes.

The setlist was simple, tune 1 to 8.

BATUSHKA is pronounced "Batjushka", the band's Cyrillic name Батюшка means "father" and is used to address an Eastern Orthodox priest. Despite their themes and imagery, they are not a Christian band.

Today's tune "Yekteníya IV: Milost" is taken from "Litourgaya"

The triumphant return of the Denver doomed rock quartet KHEMMIS. The gained some spotlight in 2016 with their sensational album "Hunted", alongside their proper debut "Absolution". They're back with a new tune and video to accompany the announcement of the new album "Desolation".

The new tune, "Isolation," shows that they have developed since "Hunted", some stylistic changes are made to the more traditional, an interesting growth the band is going through. Looking forward to letting the "Desolation" for a spin.

The cover artwork for "Desolation" designed by Sam Turner (BLACK BREATH, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD), the track listing, and more on the album has been issued alongside its first single, 'Isolation,' delivered through an epic video directed by Italo Ganni.
