SO CAL SPEED SHOPS HOT ROD CLASSICS

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:SO CAL SPEED SHOPS HOT ROD CLASSICS
Label:ROCK BEAT
Format:4CD BOX SET
Genre:Rock And Roll/Psychobilly

Rockbeat records (Home of the acclaimed Moving Sidewalks and Surf Age Nuggets box sets) presents the ultimate collection of Hot Rod tunes. 4 CDS, over 120 tracks all bound in a hardcover package with a 80 page book. Rock-A-Billy, Blues, Country and Rock and Roll are all represented.

Includes tracks by Howlin’ Wolf, Gene Vincent, Dick Dale, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, Rudy Ray Moore and scores of others. Package features an introduction by Billy Gibbons (Z.Z. Top), plus essays by James Austin and Pete Chapouris, president of So-Cal Speed Shops, an international Hot Rod specialty retailer. The music in this collection represents the golden age of gasoline, hot rods and drag racing.

There have been collections featuring the major chart hits but for our garage soundtrack, we focus on many of the lesser-known songs that rarely saw the light of day and are true to the original spirit of hot rod culture. The ‘50s hot rod songs were able to tap into the core of the culture and capture the excitement of racing down the highway. There is a kind of exhilaration that that these one hit wonders were able to capture. It was all so new. Most of them were on small “mom and pop” labels that went nowhere. Find them all here!

 

 

CLAWING INTO BLACK SUN

Band:WOLVHAMMER
Album:CLAWING INTO BLACK SUN
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Minneapolis/Chicago metal band WOLVHAMMER have morphed into quite the killing machine over the years of self-infliction, abuse, and debauchery. With their new third full-length album, “Clawing Into Black Sun”, WOLVHAMMER (the core of the band consisting of vocalist Adam Clemans, guitarist Jeff Wilson, and drummer Heath Rave) have easily created their best work yet where their volatile amalgamation of black metal, deathrock, and punk has reached a new level of, dare we say maturity. Said term used loosely, but with “Clawing Into Black Sun”, WOLVHAMMER’s musical development has grown immensely, honed with a new sense of focus since their vicious and acclaimed “Obsidian Plains” album from 2011.

With the band planning on many live assaults in support of “Clawing Into Black Sun” (with the band’s last tour run seeing them on a successful run supporting Black Dahlia Murder and Skeletonwitch), the new WOLVHAMMER album will lend a new awareness to the band and see them become even more recognized with their most punishing and accomplished offering yet.

 

 

SABBRACADAVER

Band:MONARCH
Album:SABBRACADAVER
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

For years, France’s most recognized and active extreme doom metal band MONARCH have delivered some of the most punishing amplifier worship that has befallen doom metal through the band’s myriad of releases. This has earned them the reputation as one of the most recognized extreme doom metal bands in the scene today, through countless live shows and tours they have under their belt, the music of MONARCH is an experience to behold within the realm of doom metal.

Forged by a heaving earth rumbling low-end rhythm section being harnessed by the crawling and churning riffs of despair, and all held within the grips of the harsh and spellbinding vocals of Emilie Bresson, MONARCH have continued to raise the bar and push their own threshold with every succeeding release they unleash amongst their repertoire.

The band’s latest work and their Profound Lore Records debut, entitled “Sabbracadaver”, sees MONARCH create what could very well be their heaviest, most haunting, and moving album yet. Those who have already fallen under MONARCH’s spell will recognize “Sabbracadaver” as the band’s most enchanting work, an album that will finds its way within the extreme doom metal hierarchy.

OF THINGS SEEN AND UNSEEN

Band:SERPENT VENOM
Album:OF THINGS SEEN AND UNSEEN
Label:THE CHURCH WITHIN
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

The 2014 release of the album 'Of Things Seen & Unseen' marks a new beginning for Serpent Venom.

Conceived in 2008, Serpent Venom, hailing from London and Hertfordshire, brought their brand of 70's tinged, traditional heavy doom to a wide audience across the UK, receiving high praise for debut album 'Carnal Altar' and their live shows. Upon the departure of Pete Fox, Serpent Venom enlisted guitarist Roland Scriver, (Sloth, End of Level Boss) and toured hard across the British Isles and Europe. With a ferocious live presence and thunderous volume, the band continued to cement their reputation as a live act playing with the likes of Trouble, Pentagram, Conan, Black Magician, Goatess and Bast, all whilst honing the riffs for the second album.

'Of Things Seen & Unseen' was recorded at Skyhammer Studio in October 2013 with Chris Fielding (Electric Wizard, Conan, Capricorns, Taint, Coltsblood, Bast) at the helm. It is the first recording to feature guitarist Roland Sc river and marks a song writing approach that came straight out of the jam room and involved the whole band.

PURPLE HILL WITCH

Band:PURPLE HILL WITCH
Album:PURPLE HILL WITCH
Label:THE CHURCH WITHIN
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Purple Hill Witch was summoned out of the norwegian countryside for about three years ago. The young trio (who's members are also to be found in Spectral Haze, Condor and Flight) are under heavy influence of bands such as Pentagram, Witchfinder General and Black Sabbath, complimented by the filthiness of old heavy- and thrash- metal bands from the 70's and 80's. After spending their first couple of years playing alongside many great bands in Oslo's shady basements, they crossed the norwegian border for the first time this november, as they hit the european roads together with the doom legends of Lord Vicar. The 7"-vinyl entitled "Alchemy" is their only official release so far, but the band has recently been in the studio finishing up their first full length album, which is expected to finally surface in the early parts of 2014.

 

 

BEELZEFUZZ - LP

Band:BEELZEFUZZ
Album:BEELZEFUZZ - LP
Label:THE CHURCH WITHIN
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Beelzefuzz is a heavy rock trio from North East MD formed in 2009. Releasing a 4 song demo in 2010 they established a loyal fan base in the DE, MD, PA area that eventually led to signing with Germany's very prestigious Church Within records in 2012. Beelzefuzz incorporates a very unique style of heavy music similar to the classic sounds of early 70's bands such as Uriah Heep, Deep Purple and Black sabbath as well as contemporary acts Pentagram, Graveyard and Earthride. Still Beelzefuzz remain decidely independent with their own personal brand of melodic heavy rock and the David Byron, John Lawton crossed with Mark Farner vocal stylings of singer and guitarist Dana Ortt shine through beautifully in songs such as "Lotus Jam", "All the Feeling Returns", "Reborn" and the haunting "Hypnotize". Dana Ortt along with bassist Pug Kirby were joined by drummer Darin McCloskey (Pale Divine) in 2011 and entered the studio again to record a new four song demo. Sparking quite a bit of label interest they secured the deal with The Church Within records and are set to release their first self titled album via the label in 2013.

THE WORLD IS BURNING

Band:MAT McNERNEY AND KIMMO HELEN
Album:THE WORLD IS BURNING
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:TV and MOVIE

A haunting soundtrack to a short movie by Mat McNerney (Hexvessel/Beastmilk) and Kimmo Helén (Hexvessel), inspired by Newfoundland Folk and the Canadian wilderness.

"We researched a lot into Newfoundland and traditional folk music of the past and today, spending a few months looking into and listening to libraries of collected works. I was surprised at how much it reminded me of the Celtic music of my Irish upbringing and ancestry and felt immediate connection to it and an instant ability to relate to the stories. Together with the multi-talented craftsman Kimmo Helén we set about creating a soundscape using only traditional instruments that would have been used in Newfoundland folk. We worked to try to open a portal to dream, nostalgia, a deeper yearning for our roots and the joy that comes from finding your place in the universe. We hoped to be able to help tell Justin's story in as humble and honest way we could and to find a musical voice to his character's inner emotions and journey."
