It looks like Deftones will once again hit the road in March for a little trek through the states in support of their amazing new record, Koi No Yokan. No openers have been revealed thus far but the rumors of support from Scars on Broadway again have been dismissed, thankfully. You can view how the tour will run below as well as jam to my favorite track from the new record, “Goon Squad”
As previously reported, Kvelertak have been in the studio with Kurt Ballou recording their sophomore record. The band have revealed the title of that record to be Meir and will be released sometime in March of next year. The band have also revealed the album’s tracks and what looks like to be a summary of the lyrical content or title meanings or just random ramblings. You can view those below as well as their video for “Blodtørst”.
I have swooned over Coheed And Cambria‘s latest album The Afterman: Ascension and I am beyond stoked for the release of it’s companion The Afterman: Descension in February. I have always been a huge fan of Coheed And Cambria and The Afterman: Ascension is my favorite album released by the band thus far. With that said, it seems Descension is going to be pretty amazing as well. The band has released a lyric video for the track “The Hard Sell,” which you can see below. I love the riffing and of course, Claudio’s vocals are top-notch. Can’t fucking wait. Stream “The Hard Sell” below and let us know what you think. Continue reading →

Would you look at that! Tell me that artwork is not awesome! Clutch’s new studio effort Earth Rocker is set to see the light of day sometime in March on the band’s own Weathermaker Music.

Rolling Stone have premiered the new music video for Primus’ song “Jilly’s on Smack”, which appears on the band’s stellar album of last year, Green Naugahyde. The eerie track, which is inspired by a friend of the band’s who “disappeared into the world of heroin” as Les Claypool puts it, is set to an equally eerie video that switches between shots of the band playing live and old footage of family life. Which I assume is to highlight the main line of the track; “Jilly’s on smack and she won’t be coming back. No, she won’t be coming back for the Holidays”. It’s got a pretty heavy subconscious message in there if you pay attention. Anyway, you can check out the video at Rolling Stone.
Never heard of Nuclear Winter? Me neither. But guess what, it fucking destroys. Pure Araya-worshiping thrash goodness. Raw and punishing from start to finish, “Nuke ‘Em Back To The Stone Age” cues the surge of real fucking thrash. Party like it’s 1986 and punch the motherfucker next to you. Stream Nuclear Winter‘s new track below. Warborne Assault EP is due out this month via Wartorn Records. Continue reading →
Well, well, well. This is pretty great. I have expressed my undying love for Layne Staley-era Alice In Chains before but I don’t think I ever expressed me feelings about the last record, and William DuVall’s vocal debut, Black Gives Way To Blue. When it was first released, I didn’t listen to it. I couldn’t. Layne Staley was one of the greatest vocalists of all time and seeing Alice In Chains push on just didn’t settle right with me. I finally did listen to Black Gives Way To Blue and it’s not bad. Not bad at all, actually. William DuVall has an amazing voice and he is clearly influenced by Layne’s vocal styling.
Well, a new Alice In Chains song has surfaced and it is absolutely beautiful. Continue reading →
