While I am not a fan of We Came As Romans, I was intrigued when I heard that they had released their cover of Taylor Swift‘s “I Knew You Were Trouble” that will be featured on the upcoming Punk Goes Pop Vol. 6. The songs on the compilation are almost always awful, but I love it nonetheless because bad covers are my bread and butter. If you’re interested in how this track sounds, check out the music video for We Came As Romans‘ cover of “I Knew You Were Trouble” after the jump. Continue reading

As you guys know, I adore cover songs of all shapes and sizes, especially when they are done well. I also love the band Tombs and everything they do, so when I learned that the band had covered David Bowie‘s “Heroes,” I was over the moon. Not only is the song extremely well done, it is my favorite Bowie tune, which appears in one of my favorite movies The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. Check out Tombs rendition of the track as well as their video for it after the jump. Continue reading

Swiss black metal act Schammasch are a band that I discovered earlier this year with the release of their second full-length album Contradiction. I love the album and the atmosphere that Schammasch creates, so of course when the band released a new music video I was curious as to what it would entail. The video is for the bands track “Golden Light” and it is definitely abstract. It’s not necessarily hard to follow, it’s just weird. I guess that’s what I should have expected however. Check out the video after the jump and come to your own conclusion. Enjoy. Continue reading
Not too long ago I received a press release for a band called Black Map. While I had never heard of the act before, I was instantly interested because members of Black Map also serve time in Dredg *swoon* and Far. That’s a damn fine pedigree for the basis of a band and guess what: Black Map is phenomenal! The band has just unleashed their track “Chinaski” and I highly suggest you take a few minutes to let it soak into your brain tissue. Continue reading

Lane and I have been enamored with Old Man Gloom for a good while now. We love the ape-inspired sludgy mayhem and all that comes with it. Well, Noisey recently released a forty-five minute documentary about the band and it’s pretty great. You can watch the entire doc after the jump. If you’ve ever seen any of Noisey’s past docs, you know that they do not half ass anything. Check it out. Continue reading
