Clutch - In Walks Barbarella


Defcon! Tractor beams!
Weaponized Funk
In walks Barbarella, set to stun
Defcon! Tractor beams!
Gamma ray gun
Straight out the mothership!
Weaponized Funk

Part of the lyrics from one of the coolest Rock Blues bands on this planet, the Maryland rockers CLUTCH and today they are gigging at Annexet here in Stockholm and I will miss it 😔
Well I could probably be able to sort it somehow, but after this week at work, I'm exhausted, dead tired, finish and totally caput, I need some rest before I break up into thousand pieces.



Well, enjoy the music, I will and if you are there or going to see them play soon, have fun and think of me.





Today's tune "In Walks Barbarella" is taken from the album "Book of Bad Decisions", enjoy! The tune "In Walks Barbarella" is two stories woven into one. An adult man talks to a boy, maybe his son, about events that occurred 20 years ago. Now add visions of Jane Fonda as Barbarella, ray guns, and tractor beams. It's one of "Book Of Bad Decisions"' signature songs and it includes a horn section that truly turns this song into weaponized funk.

Last In Line - Landslide


Vivian Campbell, Vinny Appice, Phil Soussan, and Andrew Freeman collectively known as LAST IN LINE, are set to release their second album, “II” via Frontiers Music Srl on February 22, 2019.

LAST IN LINE was formed in 2011, when Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain, and Vivian Campbell, (Ronnie James Dio’s co-conspirators and co-writers on the "Holy Diver", "Last In Line" - the album from which they took their name, and "Sacred Heart” albums) teamed up with esteemed vocalist Andrew Freeman. The debut album "Heavy Crown" was released in February 2016. Initially, the release had been preceded by tragedy when bassist Jimmy Bain unexpectedly passed away at the age of 68 on January 23, 2016. LAST IN LINE, honoring what they knew would be Bain’s wish to keep the band moving, brought in renowned bassist Phil Soussan (ex-Ozzy Osbourne) and committed to sustained touring in support of the album, hitting festivals, headlining clubs, and sharing the stage with metal luminaries such as SAXON and MEGADETH.




In late 2017, the band gathered in L.A. to start the recording of the second album, which was produced by the band members and Jeff Pilson (FOREIGNER, THE END: MACHINE, DOKKEN), who also produced the debut album. Having really gelled as a band while touring in support of the debut album, the songwriting came readily to the members. They’ve created a record that shows a big progression in sound, while immediately being recognizable as Last In Line thanks to Vinny Appice’s rhythms, thunderous bass from Soussan, amazing vocals from Andrew Freeman, and the roaring guitars of Vivian Campbell.

Pre order the album with alot of fun extras at Pledgemusic here!

Today's tune "Landslide" is taken from the upcoming album "II", the Video Directed, Produced and Edited by Jamie Brown for Smoking Gun, Inc.

The Ghost Next Door - Eleven O'clock Blues


THE GHOST NEXT DOOR is an alt/metal quartet hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area

Based in Berkeley, California, THE GHOST NEXT DOOR emerged from a desire to marry the dark melancholy of 80s and 90s alternative with the aggression and drive of Bay Area metal. With Gary Wendt on guitar and vocals, Aaron Asghari on guitar, Noah Whitfield on bass, and Sebastien Castelain on drums, solid songwriting and musical diversity are at the core of THE GHOST NEXT DOORs sound.


Each member brings unique influences from across the modern music spectrum: from punk to jazz, progressive metal to sadcore, modern rock to thrash. Their influences and playing styles combine into meter-bending, riff-driven rock & roll breaking out from under the bare skin of abrasively honest lyrics.

Today's tune "Eleven O'clock Blues" is taken from THE GHOST NEXT DOORs debut. Released on June 9th on Mausoleum Records. Video directed by Mike Sloat, enjoy!

Dimmu Borgir - Council Of Wolves And Snakes


Eerie shadows are lurking in the dark corners of spring 2018; the spirit that denies, a force able to distort our conception of space and time. Over seven years, deathlike silence has filled the halls of the world’s biggest black metal forge, DIMMU BORGIR, whilst powers have been gathering to resurrect the band right in time for their 25th anniversary. Now they finally mark their return with a vicious work of art that can be defined as timeless in the truest sense of the word: "Eonian".


"Eonian" is the tenth studio album by Norwegian black metal band DIMMU BORGIR, which was released on May 4, 2018.

Production of "Eonian" originally started at least in 2012 but faced many delays for years after. However, it was given an eventual official release date of May 4, 2018, which ended up being their first original studio album in nearly 8 years following 2010's "Abrahadabra". The band self-produced the album while the engineering was handled by Jens Bogren. DIMMU BORGIR had to re-sign to their current label Nuclear Blast and reflect on communication during the eight-year gap. During this gap, three of the band members became fathers and focused on their family life. When describing the album's sound, Silenoz stated that the symphonic metal parts are more symphonic while the black metal sound of DIMMU is more black metal this time around. In April, DIMMU BORGIR announced limited tour dates for the month of August 2018 that have expanded, check all the dates below.





DIMMU BORGIR (/ˌdɪmuː ˈbɔːrɡɪər/) is a Norwegian symphonic black metal band from Oslo, Norway, formed in 1993. The name is derived from Dimmuborgir, a volcanic formation in Iceland, the name of which means "dark cities" or "dark castles/fortresses" in Icelandic, Faroese and Old Norse. The band has been through numerous lineup changes over the years; vocalist Shagrath and rhythm guitarist Silenoz are the only original members who still remain, with lead guitarist Galder being a longstanding member. On 28 May, it was announced that Victor Brandt (ENTOMBED A.D., FIRESPAWN) had officially joined as the band's new bassist.

Today's tune "Council Of Wolves And Snakes" is the second single taken from the latest album "Eonian", enjoy!

Behemoth - I Loved You At Your Darkest


Monday, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

"I Loved You At Your Darkest" (ILYAYD for short) is the 11th full-length release for the Polish blackened death metal band BEHEMOTH. The album was released on October 5, 2018.

BEHEMOTH is a band that always been about breaking boundaries, taboos, leaving its comfort zone and thinking out of the box! Something that I value high as listner to their musical creations. After the masterpiece of "The Satanist" the previous album, they are back with another powerful, dark and full of mind-blowing sounds that will surely run more than one time on your record player, mine has even if I am a bit late with this review. ILYAYD is an album with no fillers, extremely good quality straight true the album. BEHEMOTH shows that they still are one of the top bands in their genre.


Nergal's vocals are horrified and excellent, guitar playing is melodic and evil. Inferno's drumming is like a furious machine. The hellish bass licks by "Orion" and the haunted and icy riffing by "Seth" makes this a very good band.

ILYAYD opens up with the "Not to forgive" from the children’s choir in the intro "Solve" until the "Wolves Ov Siberia" shows it blackened backbone self. "God = Dog" features classic black metal with heavy riffing and a insane video. The melodic blackened piece "If Crucifixion Was Not Enough" is a real beauty to the lovley and vicious power ballad "Bartzabel" or the catchy choruses and riffs in the hypnotic hymn to the anti-god "Havohej Pantocrator", in "Angelvs XIII" and "Sabbath Mater" we get some powerful BEHEMOTH pieces, blasting, screaming, hateful and some melodic guitar riffing to the tear the heads off tune "Ecclesia Diabolica Catholica", overload and blastbeat-heavy tunes like "Rom 5:8" and the album closer "Coagvia". It doesn't get more blasphemous than this!

Sum: ILYAYD is another strong addition to BEHEMOTHs remarkable musical catalog.




Today's tune "Bartzabel", taken from ILYAYD, enjoy!

TNT - Seven Seas


Sunday, time for a classic.

"Seven Seas" is a tune taken from the second studio album "Knights of the New Thunder" by the Norwegian heavy metal band TNT. It was the first TNT album recorded with their new vocalist Tony Harnell, who had replaced their original singer Dag Ingebrigtsen.


Most of the songs on the album had been written and recorded as demos while Ingebrigtsen was still in the band, but most of the lyrics were rewritten by Harnell. Two songs from TNT's self-titled first album, "USA" and "Eddie", were re-recorded and included on the album, though "Eddie" was an exclusive bonus track on the CD edition in Europe and replaced "Tor with the Hammer" on U.S. editions. "Eddie" also came on the single American Tracks bundled with the LP in Europe.

This was their last album playing traditional heavy metal, as their later releases have a more glam metal style.

The album's original cover art featured an illustration of half-naked women and caused controversy in Norway. A new cover was made and used for the national and international editions, except for Japan where the album was released with its original cover.

TNT is a Norwegian heavy metal band from Trondheim, formed in 1982. The band has released twelve studio albums, three EPs and three live albums while going through numerous line-up changes since its formation. Guitarist Ronni Le Tekrø is the only consistent member of TNT. 
TNT has sold between 4-5 million albums worldwide as of 2016.



Enjoy today's classic.

The Good The Bad And The Zugly - Vik Bak Meg Satan


THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE ZUGLY is a Norwegian punk band from Hadeland. It consists of members Eirik Melstrøm (guitar), Kim Skaug (guitar), Magne Vannebo (drums), Lars Gulbrandsen (bass) and Ivar Nikolaisen (vocal). The band has been compared to TURBONEGRO and ANAL BABES as well as their inspirators POISON IDEA, BLACK FLAG, ANGRY SAMOANS and GG ALLIN fought a few recent bands like VICTIMS, FUCKED UP and THE BRONX. The release "Hadeland Hardcore" from 2015 was nominated for Spellemannspris in the Rock category.





THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE ZUGLY lyrics deal with an illness that one-third of the world’s population can relate to, but no-one talks about. Taboos still exist! And so does punk rock.

Today's tune "Vik Bak Meg Satan", taken from latest album "Misanthropical House", which was released through Fysisk Format on January 26, 2018. "Misanthropical House" was mixed and produced by Anders Nordengen and written and recorded by the band at Top Room studio in Hadeland, Norway. Enjoy!

Turbonegro - Hurry Up & Die


Well, lightning does strike twice, because May 2016 saw ANOTHER new single! Just in time for final exams, TURBONEGRO unleashed Special Education to the unsuspecting public. A story of a teenage boy’s fall from academic grace and the cruel and unusual discipline he finds at the very bottom, the song was inspired by repeated watchings of Scum and The Story Of O on the tour bus VHS player; «They were the only tapes we had!» Guitarist Rune Rebellion confesses.

Bass player and cultural commenter Happy-Tom could not contain his excitement: «A golfer from Phoenix once claimed that school is «out». Norway JosĂŠ, au contraire say we: school is «in»! This saucy tale of sizzling hot sexual abuse will MAKE GOING TO SCHOOL GREAT AGAIN.»

And so finally, in the wake of the infamous blizzards of the Scandinavian Winter of 2017, the savvy six gathered in the studio in Oslo to embark on the venture that is now about to be revealed to the world as the ROCKNROLL MACHINE, their ninth studio album to date.



First new song shared was the title track «RockNRoll Machine» – a song perfectly hitting the fine line between clever and stupid, without ever turning lukewarm. Everyone has been intrigued and frightened by all the talk about A.I. and robotification of society lately, this one is about bringing that tech-talk into boogie rock territory and stop thinking so much about tomorrow. The Rock and Roll Machine has all the traits you’ll find an in a classic rocker: he keeps going all night, tell Tchaikovsky the news, but is still quite cheap and affordable, and, unfortunately, a bit unpredictable (according to some reviewers), quickly becoming passé.

Vocalist Tony Sylvester AKA The Duke Of Nothing had this to say about the new material: ”We’ve spent the past years honing our skills. The music we are releasing now is more distilled, more refined, more pointed, more powerful; we travelled to the future and this is what we heard on the radio!”

Turbonegro´s ninth studio album ”ROCKNROLL MACHINE” was let loose on the World February 2nd, 2018 almost to the day 20 years after the release of their now classic ”Apocalypse Dudes” album, and will be followed by Euro and US club tours, and a bunch of festival performances throughout 2018.

Today's tune "Hurry Up & Die" is the second single from the latest release "RockNRoll Machine", today's clip is live at Lindmo, NRK April 7. 2018, enjoy!

Cato Salsa Experience - Lovesick


Part of the post-CARDIGANS trend in Scandinavian pop toward a more rocking, garage sound, Oslo, Norway's CATO SALSA EXPERIENCE make a righteously sloppy clatter with a strong hint of psychedelia and just enough pop smarts to make it work. The group formed in 2000 when singer and guitarist Cato Thomassen, bassist Christian Engfelt, and drummer Jon Magne Riise held an informal jam session in Thomassen's kitchen. Adding keyboardist Nina Bjorndalen and taking their nonsensical name from a joke someone had scribbled on the aforementioned kitchen wall, the band started gigging around the local clubs and released a self-titled 10" EP. After THE HIVES made the Scandinavian countries hot again, the American label Emperor Norton signed the CATO SALSA EXPERIENCE, releasing their debut album, "A Good Tip for a Good Time", in the summer of 2002.

Later in the 2000s, the group began recording albums with The Thing. Following the beginning of Cato Thomassen's full-time musical partnership with ex MADRUGADA singer Sivert HĂśyem in 2009, the band is seemingly now defunct.


Members:

Cato (Salsa) Thomassen-vocals, guitar
Christian Engfelt-bass
Jon Magne Riise-drums
Nina Bjorndalen-keyboards

Today's tune "Lovesick" is taken from the bands second album "Fruit Is Still Fresh" (Garralda Records, 2003), enjoy!

Tempel - Tempel


Monday, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

The Norwegian rockers TEMPEL released their self titled debut album on March 23, 2018. Yes it took time to find its way from Vestfold, Norway to TyresÜ, Sweden, but it was worth it, as this is one hell of a debut. The album was mixed by Vegard Liverød & Bjarte Lund Rolland, mastered by Nick Terry.


TEMPEL was founded by three brothers, Inge Gjermundrød (bassist/vocalist), Kjetil Gjermundrød (drummer) and Espen Gjermundrød (guitarist) - along with their best friend Andreas Espolin Johnson (guitarist) to complete the band. They used a couple of years to develop their sound until 2018 when they released their debut album with a northern Europe tour doing support for KVELERTAKs sideshows while they were touring with METALLICA!


TEMPELs music is eclectic mix of all genres of the harder brand of rock, melodic and in the same time very brutal and delicate. Harsh vocal mixed with partly gentle singing. Shredded riffing on the twin guitars, meaty bass licks and tight drumming is the layout for a terrific playtime with TEMPEL.

The first thing that pops in the head after a spin on this album is of course KVELERTAK, the main band for the drummer Kjetil, when he doesn't play for TEMPEL.

The debut album opens up with the fast shredding rocker "Vendetta", harsh vocal in a melodic and trashy environment. In the following tunes "Wolves" and "Uninvited" are two really sweaty songs, the first one with a meaty and glamorous intro before it burst out to a furious hardcore, the second kicks on right on the spot and catches the breath a few times before they play the last note. "Afterlife" is a real killer, melodic rambling, shredding riffs that will glue into your forehead forever, screaming vocals and hunting choirs that cuts deep in your soul. "Confusion" is another melodic and riffy piece with nice choirs singing from the band members and not nearly as frantic vocals as the other tunes. "Forest Cemetery" starts neatly with the mouth harp, before it rhythm section takes over and shortly erupts to a riffy mayhem for approx one minute, then slows down to a melodic and instrumental path, slowly again is accelerate back to hit its peak. "Fortress", marching intro and memorable riffing, catchy and melodic. "Torches", starts with beautiful guitar play until the tune fires up into classic melody that is really nicely executed by the band. With a little slower pace with emotional and the album ending "Farewell", softer with gentle vocals until it blows away shortly into a scream of madness, the tune is featuring Benedicte Edvardsen from MOWLITH as guest vocalist

Sum: This debut is totally irresistible!

Today's tune "Afterlife", enjoy!

Junipher Greene - Friendship


Sunday, time for a classic.

"Friendship" is a tune by the Norwegian progressive rock group JUNIPHER GREENE, taken from the debut album "Friendship", it was released in 1971, and is known as Norway's first "double" album. Manufacturers were the band itself, Nils Bjarne Kvam and Harald Are Lund. The album was 13 weeks on the VG list in 1971 and 1972, with number 8 the best place.

JUNIPHER GREENE was formed in Oslo, Norway in 1966 - Disbanded in 1983 - Reformed in 2008 for Live concerts.



The initial line-up included Bent ÅSERUD on guitars, keyboards, flute and vocals, Geir BØHREN on lead vocals, drums and sax, Helge GRØSLIE on keyboards, Freddy DAHL on guitar and vocals and Øyvind Vilbo on bass.

The album is known as the first double album in Norway history, and a poem in Norwegian music. In 2007, the album was voted the Norwegian rock album of Dagens NĂŚringsliv. This made them to make a reissue on LP (Sandem Records) and made the band play their first concert in 25 years, August 31, 2007. They played as good as the entire album from beginning to end.

The re-release of Friendship
After the album's release in 1971, the original vinyl release with the foldout cover of Odd Nerdrum's painting has become a collector's object. A vinyl record in good condition may be worth a lot and it's on my want-list.

Enjoy today's tune "Friendship".

Audio & Video Remastered by BrunoSamppa, 2016, NRK1 6 September 1971 - "Flimra" series. NRK TV Studio, Oslo, Norway. The video clip includes all the parts in "Friendship", namely: Prelude: Take the Road Across the Bridge, a) Friendship, b) Interlude, c) Mountain Voices, d) Land Of The Foxes, e) Friendship That's Earned, f) Into The Cloudburst, g) Manitou's Skylands and Down To Earth, h) Friendship.

Soup - Sleepers


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

SOUP consists of:

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

Today's tune is the most experimental tune on the latest release "Cult Drugs", the album closer “(The World Covered in) Purple Shrouds”. A tune with hard hitting drumming, hailing vocals mixed with clean singing, disco synth, ruffling riffs and trumpets, a great effort from BLOOD COMMAND, 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 HĂĽkon 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.
