Foghound - Keep On Shoveling

FOGHOUND, is an American rock band from San Ramon, California. "Awaken To Destroy" is thier latest release where work began on the album in November 2016, with producer Frank Marchand (THE OBSESSED / BORRACHO) at the helm.

Numerous delays along the way sidelined production due to health issues, professional and personal commitments, and then the tragic murder of bassist Rev. Jim Forrester in December 2017, just days after completing the recording of the basic tracking.

“After seeing Jim claw and fight his way back after a major health scare and being in a coma last summer, only to be senselessly taken away from us all in this way, it really hit everyone like a ton of bricks”, says drummer / vocalist Chuck Dukeheart.

“The outpouring of love and support from everyone, and especially our friends and family in the Maryland Doom scene, was overwhelming. We can’t thank everyone enough for helping us, Jim’s wife Tina, and family to get through this terrible time.”

FOGHOUND emphasizes, “One thing that became apparent was that we all knew, and Jim said as much when he was laid up in the hospital last summer, was that he wouldn’t want us to stop. In his words – ‘We still have shit to do.'”

The band stated, “It was a very heavy, emotional time for us, to be back in the jamroom without Jim, but Adam really stepped up in a big way. His enthusiasm, preparedness, and love for the music really helped us get back to why we all play music. We were able to have fun again.”

“We are looking forward to being a part of these stellar lineups and to play these new songs live. We can’t wait for this monster of an album to be unleashed at the end of the summer!”


Chuck Dukeheart, III – Drums, Vocals
Dee Settar – Guitar, Vocals
Bob Sipes – Guitar, Vocals
Adam Heinzmann – Bass

Jim Forrester lived his life by two mottos: “Upward and Onward!” and “I’ve Got Shit To Do!” So that’s what we’ve decided to do- we’re gonna keep on doing this thing called Foghound because it soothes our souls, it helps us remember, and it’s a fucking blast. In November 2018, Ripple Music will release our third album, Awaken to Destroy, on vinyl & cd, and Oliver Brewing Company will release “Awaken To Destroy”- 9% Double IPA - as part of their Rock and Roll Series. So keep on shoveling, upward & onward; we’ve got shit to do.

Today's tune "Keep on Shoveling (Rev Jim Forrester Benefit)" taken from the latest release "Awaken To Destroy", enjoy!

Rammstein - Rammstein

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

After ten years of waiting for a new album, now it finally came and what we have in our hands an album that shows the result of dedicated work of German brains that still are loyal to their own sound, the trademark of RAMMSTEIN has been to upset and make an impact of the masses, to get people to wake up from their screens and ordinary lives and the main thing is to create a rush through the impenetrable walls of political power, that is something you've really succeeded with over the years. But because it’s all in German, it’s not entirely clear which is which and what is what, but have tried to translate some of it but is not so easy to figure all out, but hey, does anyone listens to RAMMSTEIN for the lyrics??

The new self-titled album follows the path that they worked out in the last decade, Teutonic dance metal in their native language German. The first single and the opening number "Deutschland" gassed the whole German government with the catchy tune about the Holocaust in World War II. The second tune and single "Radio" is a disco-metal tune about growing up in East Germany (It was a country that existed from 1949 to 1990 when the eastern portion of Germany was part of the Eastern Bloc during the Cold War.) Choir hymns open up "Zeig Dich", mechanized riffs with a militant and Teutonic beats, big and powerful chorus. Euro-disco thrasher "Ausländer" with a kids choir in the chorus, a tune that easily could be a hit on the dance floor. Heavy riffs open up "Sex", a catchy number with a big electronic solo in the end. The experimental tune "Puppe" stands out a bit from the normal layout, reminds me of CAPTAIN BEEFHEART :) "Was Ich Liebe" half paced love piece until it slows down at the end of the album with the weepy ballad "Diamant" and "Weit Weg". "Tattoo" follows the old-school RAMMSTEIN template, heavy chugging riffs, hard drumming, angry and determined vocals. The album wraps up with the slow burner "Hallomann", builds up slowly to a powerful album closer. A really decent album release from these Pyroman's, catch them live this summer if you can.

Sum: RAMMSTEIN still can make some impact and upset peoples.

Today's tune "Radio", the second single from the new self titled album, enjoy!

Spidergawd - Is This Love..?

SPIDERGAWD is a rock band formed in Trondheim, Norway in 2013. A band that easily would be classed as one of the finest from that country in the present time.

The founding fathers of the beast was Per Borten (CADILLAC & MOVING OOS) on guitars and vocals, Bent Sæther (MOTORPSYCHO, THE INTERNATIONAL TUSSLER SOCIETY & SUGARFOOT) on bass, Rolf Martin Snustad (HOPALONG KNUT, SMAVIRKELAGET & NORTHERN STAR GROOVE ALLIANCE) on saxophones and Kenneth Kapstad (MOTORPSYCHO, MONOLITHIC, GOD SEED & GÅTE) on drums. On June 1 2016 it was announced that Bent Sæther was leaving the band to have more time for his other projects. The band brought on Hallvard Gaardløs (ORANGO) as a fulltime bassist, who had been touring with the band in support of the "Spidergawd III" album.

They released their debut album "Spidergawd" on 31 January 2014, and their sophomore album "Spidergawd II" on 16 January 2015. The next album, appropriately called "Spidergawd III", was released 22 January 2016. The band has been touring Norway, Germany, The Netherlands and Italy on grounds familiar to MOTORPSYCHO, which are hungry for more Norwegian rock.

Today's tune "Is This Love..?" taken from "Spidergawd IV", filmed Live in Soergarden Studio. Un-edited sound. Nothing but the naked truth... enjoy!

Bokassa - Mouthbreathers Inc.

17th of May, the national day in Norway, hurray hurray Norway! I wish we could celebrate our national day same as the Norweigan does, but no, we don't...sad. So today we celebrate them and play Norway's finest stoner-punk band BOKASSA, a band that released a brand new music video for "Mouthbreathers Inc." yesterday, taken off of the new upcoming album "Crimson Riders" out June 21st.

BOKASSA plays some fuse stoner rock riffs and groove with the energy and volatility of punk and hardcore, into their own unique brand of stoner punk. Their 2017 debut album, "Divide & Conquer" was an excellent release.

"Crimson Riders" was recorded back home in Trondheim’s Brygga Studio, with production by the band together with Yngve Andersen (BLOOD COMMAND), mixing by Simon Jackman, and mastering by the legendary Brian ‘Big Bass’ Gardener.

BOKASSA enthuses, “We are very excited to release "Crimson Riders". Nine songs which revolve around everything from cults, religion, and border patrols to beer-drinking anti-heroes and immortal space pirates! Sonically, the album gives the listener everything from classic stoner-punk tracks, groovy desert songs, and high speed trash metal, to hardcore-oriented sing-a-longs. This time we also played around with both cellos and saxophone in the studio so expect a few curveballs here and there.”

La Muerte - LSD For The Holy Man

Belgium’s LA MUERTE is an extreme, horrifying interesting, cruel and unexpected band that originally forming in 1983, splitting up in 1994 and sporadically releasing material without officially reforming until 2014, they’ve remained entrenched in the underground. Their music is a blend of noise rock, hardcore punk, dirty rock ‘n’ roll and whatever other unhinged heaviness has been gestating in the minds of the band since their split.

Check out the single “LSD For The Holy Man” with the opening bassline and the violence guitar riffing and frenzy vocals.

Tomma Intet - There Is A Star In Every Grain

TOMMA INTET (meaning: “nothingness”) is a collective with an undefined amount of members, born in Sweden during the winter of 2016 and is based on the idea of enlightenment and transcendence.

TOMMA INTET is a state of mind. It is the world you experience when you decide to leave something old and familiar and evolve into something new and unknown.

The music created within the collective is best described as the sound of Scandinavian nature – dramatic and energetic, yet fragile and beautiful, somewhere in between the 60’s dreamy pop music and the 80’s new wave. With a wall of harmonies on top of lyrics reminding us about death and love, TOMMA INTET is the soundtrack of our last days left on this earth.

The world is burning, now let us burn with it...

Today's tune "There Is A Star In Every Grain" live at the festival Livet på landet Nitta Sweden August 19 2017.

The Lunar Effect - Calm Before The Calm

Monday, a new week is here again, time to introduce "Record Of The Week".

The new boys from London, UK, THE LUNAR EFFECT released their debut full-length album "Calm Before The Calm" on the 25th January 2019.

"Calm Before The Calm" is a modern take on soulful rock music firmly rooted in the seventies, bands like DEEP PURPLE, LED ZEPPELIN, and BLACK SABBATH comes in mind.

THE LUNAR EFFECT consists of the Jefford Brothers, Jon (guitar) & Dan (Drums) together with the brilliant bassman Brett Halsey and the excellent vocalist Josh Gosling.

The album has eight glorious tunes that spin over thirty-five heavy soulful minutes. And somehow THE LUNAR EFFECT sounds like they have been around for ages in this outfit, the sound, the rhythm section, tight and well-played melodies, tasty and deep guitars and a cruel vocal delivery make this sound like some kind of spell has been thrown over these guys. It's magic!. The album opens up with the powerful "Woman", deep and soulful blues piece that gives you as a listener goosebumps. "Stare At The Sun" is an uptempo steam rocker with a groove-laden beat to shakes up things. The slow and wonderful bassline signed Brett Halsey, that opens up "Call It In" before the distorted guitars slide in and give the tune some spice, the main thing is the neat bassline that fondles with the vocals, the tune is a beauty by itself. In the tune "Weaver" the vocalist Josh Gosling summons Jim Morrison with his hypnotic vocals and gives the tune a THE DOORS feeling, the same thing goes with the tune "Filterdog" where the 60's psychedelic gently moves through the air. The album closer and the title track "Calm Before The Calm" is a breathless and moody blues piece that closes this off with big star in my book. This is an excellent album debut that offers great psych-flavored heavy rock that is always engaging and captivating that I highly recommend.

The vinyl is pressed on heavy high-performance vinyl by Pallas Group in Germany and released by Kozmik Artifacts.

Sum: Calm Before The Calm is an incredibly solid debut album with a brilliant blend of musical genres.

The term lunar effect refers to real or imaginary correlations between specific stages of the roughly 29.5-day lunar cycle and behavior and physiological changes in living beings on Earth, including humans. In some cases the purported effect may depend on external cues, such as the amount of moonlight. In other cases, such as the approximately monthly cycle of menstruation in humans (but not other mammals), the coincidence in timing reflects no known lunar influence.

Today's tune is the title tune "Calm Before The Calm", enjoy!

ZZ Top - Blue Jean Blues

Sunday, time for a classic.

"Blue Jean Blues" is a tune taken from the fourth studio album "Fandango!" by the American blues-rock band ZZ TOP, released in 1975. Half the tracks are selections from live shows, the rest are new songs from the studio. A remastered and expanded edition of this album was released on February 28, 2006.

A sturdy American blues-rock trio from Texas, ZZ Top specialized in down-and-dirty blues-rock during the '70s, then scored colorful MTV hits during the 1980s. Formed in Houston in 1970 by Billy Gibbons (guitar), Dusty Hill (bass), and Frank Beard (drums), the trio came from a pair of rival bands the Moving Sidewalks (Gibbons) and American Blues (Hill and Beard). Their first two albums reflected the strong blues roots and Texas humor of the band. Their third album (Tres Hombres) gained them national attention with the hit "La Grange," a signature riff tune to this day, based on John Lee Hooker's "Boogie Chillen." Their success continued unabated throughout the '70s, culminating with the year-and-a-half-long Worldwide Texas Tour.

"Blue Jean Blues" was also released as a B-side on the single "Tush".

As always, the trio is out on the road and a visit to Sweden rock next month. Enjoy today's tune.

Monolord - Fairies Wear Boots

Thursday, time for a cover.

"Fairies Wear Boots" is a song by the English heavy metal band BLACK SABBATH, from their 1970 album "Paranoid". It was released in 1971 as the B-side to "After Forever".

In the 2010 documentary film Classic Albums: BLACK SABBATHs "Paranoid", Geezer Butler states the music was inspired by the band's encounter with skinheads, who are the "fairies" in the song.

However, in the 2004 release of Black Box: "The Complete Original Black Sabbath" (1970–1978), Tony Iommi states the title was inspired from an incident when Geezer and Ozzy were smoking cannabis and saw fairies in boots running around a park and not from an encounter with skinheads. In Ozzy Osbourne's autobiography I Am Ozzy he stated he doesn't know what the song is about, but everybody told him he wrote the lyrics. Per an interview with the band on AXS TV's show Classic Albums, the song was about skinheads.

On US copies of the album, The intro to the song was entitled "Jack the Stripper".

An earlier version of "Fairies Wear Boots", taken from a session for the BBC's John Peel Sunday Show dated April 26, 1970, is on the bonus disc of the Ozzy Osbourne release The Ozzman Cometh.

The song also appears on the band's first compilation album, "We Sold Our Soul for Rock 'n' Roll".

In 2014, CVLT Nation asked if MONOLORD would be apart of their BLACK SABBATH “Covers” Series and assigned "Fairies Wear Boots" to the band. None of us could have imagined that this would become one of the most epic SABBATH Covers EVER!

Enjoy todays cover!

Warish - Fight

Southern California trio WARISH released their debut EP on RidingEasy Records via Brooklyn Vegan earlier this year.

Imagine if Incesticide era NIRVANA were crossed with Static Age era MISFITS. You’d have sinister low budget horror rock with a visceral, twisted weirdness and bludgeoning riffs. Some might call it nightmarish, we call it WARISH.

WARISH is a very newly minted SoCal trio formed in early 2018 that has wasted no time making its presence known. The band formed when guitarist/vocalist Riley Hawk and drummer Bruce McDonnell decided they wanted to try their hand at something more distinct than they’d done previously.

“We wanted to do simpler riffs and a fun live show,” Riley explains. “A little more punk, a little bit of grunge… a little evil-ish.”

Their sound takes cues from a variety of cool underground sounds and twists it all into an energetic and exciting fist to the face of dark fury. Hawk’s effect-laden vocals hearken to early BUTTHOLE SURFERS and David Yow’s tortured caterwaul in Scratch Acid. The guitars are heavy and powerful, though decidedly not straightforward cookie-cutter punk; more like Cobain’s and Buzz Osbourne’s wiry contortions. The rhythms bash and pummel right through it all with aggressive force ensuring that nothing gets overly complicated and the horrors keep coming throughout the 5-track, 11-minute debut.

Enjoy "Fight" from WARISH new debut EP.

Numenorean - Adore

New week and it's time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

Little over a month ago, we posted the first single "Regret" by the Calgary-based NUMENOREAN a tune taken from the new album "Adore". A superb single that has been played a lot, when the new album finally arrived in the mail it has gotten many hours of play time. An album that took three years to make and the album is a towering work of lustrous metallic art. Its deeply-nuanced tracks weave ferocity and beauty into sweeping pieces that are as haunting as they are cathartic. NUMENOREAN place themselves at the fore of the genre’s evolution with this profoundly moving work of modern, post-black metal brilliance.

The band’s name NUMENOREAN refers to a place in the Lord of the Rings lore. The cover artwork of ‘Adore’, which has been created by Luca Pierro.

"Adore" is a ten pieces album that spins on for 43 minutes, a great length for an album and it totally has blown me away with their way of creation and manage their influences in the best possible way and serve me a listener with such a captivating beast, that is impressed. It is not often you get completely knocked down when listening to a brand new record nowadays. "Adore" is a very heavy and emotional record, melodic, moody and harsh, delightful groovy death riffs and drumming. Some musical references could be the post-black band DEAFHEAVEN and the melodic metal band GOJIRA that flows in the veins and that is the overall feeling i get when I let it loose on the turntable, an excellent flow. The sadness is mixed with angry to fury and big misery, something that goes like a loop thru the whole album. Where the tune "Portrait Of Pieces", the first real song after the intro gentle intrumental "Nocebo" is a good example of the mood. There are a lot of variety between the tunes that makes this album a joy to listen to. Tunes like the title track "Adore" and "Coma" are a good example of variety. Where the first one is really complex in its layout, beefy riffing and clean vocals the other one is more emotional and touches deeply into the soul. Tunes like "Regret" have a catchy and memorable chorus with a great flow and groove where GOJIRA comes into mind or "Horizon" that blistered of with a real black metal sound, furious and real anger, halfway true it slows down and shows another face. The execution that this album shines is marvelous and I am sure that this album will reach high when the year is to be summed up.

Sum: NUMENOREAN deliver a mesmerizing album that you should not miss.

Today's tune "Adore", enjoy!

Birth Control - Stop Little Lady

Sunday, time for a classic.

This Sunday we spin back to the magic year 1971.

"Stop, Little Lady" is a tune by the German rock band BIRTH CONTROL and it appears on the album "Operation" (1971).

BIRTH CONTROL is known for their progressive hard rock sound and provocative album covers (such as that of Two Eggs – Two Concerts which depicts a hen cooking eggs).

BIRTH CONTROL formed in 1966 in Berlin from two other bands, THE EARLS and THE GENTS. The band was founded with a lineup consisting of Bernd Koschmidder (bass), Reinhold Sobotta (organ), Rolf Gurra (saxophone, vocals), Fritz Groger (vocals), Reiner Borchert (guitar), Hugo Egon Balder (drums), and Klaus Orso (guitar). Within five years of the band's formation, all seven of the original members had departed, but the band continued under the leadership of long-standing members drummer (and later lead vocalist) Bernd Noske (who replaced Balder in late 1968) and guitarist Bruno Frenzel (who replaced Borchert in 1969).

Enjoy today tune with a clip live @ Substage Karlsruhe 17th December 1993. Notice the dancing dude :)
