Something that doesn’t happen to often to bands these days is bands getting documentaries made about them. It happens every so often and it’s usually pretty cool. There was Why You Do This which focused on Car Bomb, there was As The Palaces Burn which was about the trial of Lamb Of God‘s Randy Blythe and most recently there was Forget Not, the documentary about The Chariot‘s final tour before calling it quits.
Well, there is a new documentary coming and it happens to be about one of my favorite bands: Rosetta. While I am not sure when the doc will be released, you can listen to/download the film’s soundtrack, which was crafted by the band themselves. Check out Audio/Visual after the jump. BUY IT.

As everyone knows (sadly), The Chariot called it quits after a ten year run in 2013. This broke millions of hearts and shattered minds, but we remained positive. The band had just released a rad album titled One Wing. Over the year since the band called it quits, The Chariot have been working on a 1 hour movie documenting the bands farewell tour. Check out Forget Not after the jump. Rest In Pizza. Continue reading →
A new documentary film centered around the Melvins is in the works. The film, which is entitled “The Colossus of Destiny – A Melvins Tale”, is currently being put together by friends of the band and first-time filmmakers Bob Hannam and Ryan Sutherby. No release date has been set as of yet and the filmmakers have plans to start a crowd-funding campaign to help finish the project. A short teaser video for the documentary can be found after the break.

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 →
Old Man Gloom (Ex-Isis, Converge, Cave In) have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, The Ape of God, over at Noisey. The new track is the six minute “Predators” and being subjected to its sludge-ridden riffs, which are propelled by Caleb Scolfield’s (Cave In, Zozobra) gruff vocals, is like being flattened under a train repeatedly. Feel free to stream the new track after the break and check out previously released track, “The Lash”, if you missed it.
The Ape of God will be released on November 11th. A documentary film on the band is slated to premiere this Thursday, October 9th. The trailer for that film can be seen after the break as well.

You can check out the full-length doc after the jump, which features members of Goatwhore, Eyehategod, Down, Dead Bird, Music Hates You and more. Enjoy your Friday. Continue reading →

You either love or you hate Trash Talk. Personally, I love them and the sense of family that this band has. More than that is their sense of freedom to just do whatever the fuck they want. The band has been captured on film by Never Hide Films for a five minute mini-documentary. It’s really cool and insightful when it comes to how the band operates. Check it out after the jump.

If you remember what happened in the Northeastern United States in October 2011, you’ll remember the damage that Superstorm Sandy did. Aside from dealing millions of millions of dollars of damage to homes and businesses, the famed recording studio Translator Audio was completely destroyed and the band that was currently recording there was also caught in the madness.
