GIRAFFES? GIRAFFES! In Rock Band?

I am a huge math rock fan and Giraffes? Giraffes! are a math rock powerhouse. The band posted a video on Facebook of one of their songs appearing in Rock Band. The song chosen was “I Am S/H(im)e[r] As You Am S/H(im)e[r] As You Are Me and We Am I and I Are All Our Together” from their album More Skin With Milk-Mouth. It is to be noted that it is only a preview build and the content will most likely changed. It should be available for download soon for those out there who still play Rock Band. I took the liberty of posting the song and the Rock Band preview video. Check them both out!

WOLF Crush Some Skulls With This New Video!

I’ve only recently started listening to Wolf, but I dig ‘em. I think the first time I listened to them was when they did a Mercyful Fate cover on some tribute. They have a nice, thrashy vibe to ‘em with some Sabastian Bach-styled vocals. These dudes can seriously shred and I think the new video for the song “Skull Crusher” shows that off pretty well. Check out the video below, it’s spiffy. This song is off of the band’s latest album Legion of Bastards which came out in April via Century Media.

SHITTY FUCKER Broke Up. That Sucks.

I hate when band I am just getting into break up. That really blow. The only way I really know how to describe Shitty Fucker is fucking disgusting grind/hardcore. They were a pretty sick band that, unfortunately didn’t last long. You can stream and download their album Diarrheality right here. Yeah, this sucks. Hail Tankcrimes!

Rest In Peace, Daniel Bobis of CIPHER

Now, while I was not particularly a fan of Cipher, to have anyone pass away is a terrible thing. Daniel Bobis was a 32-year old surfer, high school math teacher and drummer of the band Cipher. Daniel disappeared a few days ago after surfing a 10 foot wave off the coast of Indonesia. It is suspected that he was struck by another surfer’s board, his leash snapped and he drifted out while his board washed back ashore. Daniel’s wife along with many members of the community searched for him when he did not return to the camp where his wife and friend were waiting for him. Unfortunately, his body was found yesterday about 20 miles up the shore. Bobis was on vacation with his wife, Rachel who he had planned to start a family with. You can read the full story here. This is sad, indeed. Farewell, Daniel.

Morning Jams: SO HIDEOUS, MY LOVE…

I recently stumbled across this band and immediately fell in love with their music. Soft, melodic and passionate black metal and shoegaze. Well, I think that’s what you’d call it. I’d be happy just saying that they are amazing. The released an EP called To Clasp a Fallen Wish With Broken Fingers and it completely blew me away. I totally think this band deserves a lot more attention than they give. This morning’s playlist is dedicated to So Hideous, My Love… because they are an unbelievable musical endeavor that I can definitely get into.
