A DETERMINATION OF MORALITY

Band:ROSETTA
Album:A DETERMINATION OF MORALITY
Label:TRANSLATION LOSS
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

Uncompromisingly beautiful and absolutely devastating, “A Determinism of Morality” proves to be Rosetta’s most cohesive and trail blazing creation to date. Greatly anticipated and widely revered, Rosetta’s third Translation Loss full length creation solidifies their ascension as one of the most important bands of the decade.

“Gears have been oiled, edges honed and stops firmly pulled out to ensure this is the band’s fullest and most confident release to date.” – Rock Sound Magazine

“Delicately painful and dynamically brutal, the way good experimental metal was meant to be.” – Alternative Press Magazine

RIYL: Explosions In The Sky, Sonic Youth, Russian Circles and Coalesce.

 

 

SMILING DOGS

Band:MAN'S GIN
Album:SMILING DOGS
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Initially conjured by COBALT multi-instrumentalist Erik Wunder when residing in Colorado , MAN’S GIN initially started out by Erik Wunder and a friend who gathered their acoustic guitars to create woeful songs of despair and loneliness in tribute to the drink itself with music to drown one’s sorrows with. The result of this vision ended up as a small collection called “The Rum Demos”, recorded many years ago On homegrown recording equipment. These demos were only circulated amongst the small circle of friends Wunder surrounded himself with.

Fast-forward several years, and COBALT had released its comeback “Eater Of Birds” album and followed said album with “Gin”, which was one of the most celebrated metal albums of 2009 according to top critics and fans alike. By this time Wunder had moved to Brooklyn, NY to pursue hismusical career further and this was where the idea to rejuvenate MAN’S GIN surfaced. Acquiring two more musicians to help bring the MAN’S GIN sound to the next level (by adding grand piano and upright bass) Wunder then began to bring in electric guitars alongside the acoustic guitars and adding drums to the MAN’S GIN song blueprint. Now the sound became complete.

MAN’S GIN’s sound is not metal, but more or less good ol’ Americana singer-songwriter stuff, almost as if COBALT’s sound was transformed into a singer-songwriter vibe and had its metal entirely stripped away from it. MAN’S GIN’s sound is very reminiscent of the likes of such luminary acts as WOVEN HAND, NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS (think “Henry’s Dream” era), the more acoustic side of ALICE IN CHAINS, and even reminiscent of musicians such as JOHNNY CASH and TOM WAITS and bands like DRIVE BY TRUCKERS and 16 HORSEPOWER.

 

 

A GREAT WORK OF AGES

Band:STARGAZER
Album:A GREAT WORK OF AGES
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

With one of the most cult followings in death metal today, Australia’s STARGAZER, alongside their comrades in PORTAL, are seen as one of the most unique and bizarre bands in death metal today. With themes steeped in occult lore, STARGAZER’s brand of death metal leans more towards the technical and progressive side of the genre, following in the footsteps paved by such forefathers of the genre such as ATHIEST, CYNIC, PESTILENCE, and GORGUTS.

The two main members of STARGAZER have also been involved with some of Australia’s top underground extreme metal bands likewise, namely MOURNFUL CONGREGATION aswell as being part of PORTAL’s line-up on their seminal “Outre” album. Even though “A Great Work Of Ages” is STARGAZER’s second full-length album, the band have conjured a reputable cult following, pretty much death/extreme metal fans who are looking to indulge in bands that like to push the envelope that liitle bit further.

Alongside PORTAL, Australia’s STARGAZER are considered to be one of the most innovative bands in death metal today and tis thoroughly RIYL : PORTAL, CYNIC, and ATHIEST and other seminal technical death metal luminaries like early PESTILENCE and GORGUTS.

 

 

THE DAY THE EARTH MET THE...

Band:ROCKET FROM THE TOMBS
Album:THE DAY THE EARTH MET THE...
Label:SMOG VEIL
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Proto Punk

Cleveland's only real legitimate claim to house the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame is a band that will never be inducted there. In fact, it is more than 25 years after the group broke up that a legitimate album of their material is now available on Smog Veil. This was Rocket From the Tombs--the mutant daddy to Pere Ubu and the Dead Boys. Originally, singer David Thomas started the band in May 1974 as a kind of comedy act, though later the group would have a good grasp of theatrics. A gifted guitarist/writer named Peter Laughner showed up at some of these farce-filled gigs, jammed with the band and joined soon after that. Thomas and Laughner would make a new more musical lineup that included Gene O'Connor (AKA Cheetah Chrome) (guitar), Craig Bell (bass) and Johnny Madansky (AKA Johnny Blitz) (drums). Somehow this disparate crew got opening gigs ranging from Captain Beefheart to Television (who Laughner actually joined briefly). Without Rocket From The Tombs, the world may have never heard Thirty Seconds Over Toyko, Final Solution , Ain't It Fun, Sonic Reducer, and Down in Flames--all Rockets originals, and all contained on this release, along with 14 other tracks culled from archival live recordings, some of which have never previously been bootlegged.

This is the first ever legitimate release of Rocket From The Tombs recordings, packaged with extensive liner notes and photos. A must have for Pere Ubu/Televison/Dead Boys fans and for anyone with a genuine interest in the birth of US Punk.

David Fricke, editor of Rolling Stone, wrote of Rocket From The Tombs: "No on else in American rock, underground or over, in 1974 and '75, was writing and playing songs this hard and graphic about being f**ked over and fighting mad. No one else is doing it now."

Greg Kot in the Chicago Tribune wrote, "Rocket From the Tombs is not just the great lost proto-punk band of the '70s. It's one of the best bands of the 21st Century too."

An essential item for Dead Boys/Pere Ubu/Television fans and anyone interetested in the genesis of US Punk...

WAVE AND CLOUD

Band:THE WHISKEY PRIEST
Album:WAVE AND CLOUD
Label:RAINBOOT
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

The Whiskey Priest is Austin, Texas based songwriter Seth Woods. Seth moved to Austin in 2003, where he soon started making music with his band Sad Accordions. Around the time the band finished their first record, their writing process began to move towards a more collaborative effort, with less of an emphasis on already‐existing individual songs. While this was a much needed and welcomed change for the band, it left Seth with a suitcase full of homeless songs... and as these things will often go, long stretches of heartache continued to add to his catalogue. Heartache plus unused songs plus an identification with a specific character from classic twentieth century literature (one tormented by the struggle between the human and the divine, no less!) equals The Whiskey Priest.

Seth began working on The Whiskey Priest recordings in May of 2006. Gathering with a small group of friends in a downtown church attic, they recorded a handful of songs to Alex's four track tape machine. These became the beginnings of Wave and Cloud, a record that would finally see its completion in 2009, and its eventual release in 2010.

“Bridging dissonance and joy... A Slint‐meets‐Wilco slow burn.”

 

 

ON THE FLOOR OF HEAVEN

Band:THE BLUE SHADOWS
Album:ON THE FLOOR OF HEAVEN
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:2CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

One of the great missing chapters of Americana music history can now be rediscovered with the long-awaited reissue of the classic debut album by the legendary group The Blue Shadows.

On The Floor of Heaven is considered by many of those who got to hear it upon its initial release in 1993 as one of the great, unheralded achievements of the alt-country movement.

Out of print for more than 15 years, the roots rock masterpiece is now reissued as a two-disc Deluxe Edition via Bumstead Records. Formed in Vancouver in the early 1990s, The Blue Shadows consisted of guitarist and singer Billy Cowsill – who began his career as leader of the legendary American bubblegum group The Cowsills (of “The Rain, The Park & Other Things” fame) – and Canadian roots rocker Jeffrey Hatcher – who enjoyed cult success in the 1980s fronting Jeffrey Hatcher & The Big Beat. Together with drummer J.B. Johnson and bassist Elmar Spanier (later replaced by Barry Muir), the quartet forged a style built on the rustic sounds of classic country fused with the pop sensibility of The Beatles and tight harmony vocals that have drawn flattering comparisons to the Everly Brothers.

Volume Two is an LP by Soft Machine, first released in 1969. A jazz influence is introduced to the humour, dadaism, and psychedelia of The Soft Machine (1968).

Hold Me is taken from an inspired appearance before an adoring audience at the Burg Herzberg Festival in Germany. The recording quality is superb and the group’s fervor was caught with six cameras! The original band members’ joy at playing this concert is reinforced by knowing they found an amazing performer to handle the legendary Janis Joplin vocals. Sophia Ramos has grit, soul and charisma to spare as she charges through the Big Brother classics: Piece of My Heart, Ball and Chain, Women is Losers. Summertime has never been sung better.

POSITIVELY 12TH AND K

Band:SAL VALENTINO
Album:POSITIVELY 12TH AND K
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

On two separate nights in August 2002 and January 2003, several singer/songwriters and musicians in the local scene gathered at Marilyn's on 12th & K Streets in Sacramento, CA to pay tribute to Bob Dylan. Highlights from those two evenings are assembled on this 13-song CD, Positively 12th and K: A Bob Dylan Tribute which, though billed to Jackie Greene/Sal Valentino & Friends, is more of a various-artists compilation. Beau Brummels fans should note that Valentino sings lead on  four of the tracks; singer/songwriter Greene takes lead on four others, with the Jackie Greene Band serving as the backing group for nine of the cuts. Lesser-known singers Mick Martin, Sherman Baker, Lew Fratis, and Billy Harper, Jr. serve as the vocal frontmen on the remainder of the program. These are good musicians doing energetic, straightforward covers of an assortment of Dylan tunes both celebrated ("Subterranean Homesick Blues," "Isis," "It's All over Now, Baby Blue," "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," "All Along the Watchtower," "I Shall Be Released") and more obscure ("Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?," "Not Dark Yet," "Everything Is Broken"). It sounds like everyone on-stage and in the audience had a most jovial time!

Sal Valentino is truly a living legend. Famed lead singer of The Beau Brummels and manic front man for the 70's psychedelic-funk-rock-full-stage-extravaganza, Stoneground, Sal continues to share his gift with the world. Every Now And The features Sal doing what he does best, interpreting songs and stories that can only be delivered (by what has been referred to by rock historians, as) 'the most underrated voice in Rock and Roll history'. As a nod to the past, Valentino covers The Beau Brummels biggest hit Laugh, Laugh evoking memories of the innocence of early 60's rock and roll without the slightest bit of regret that time has moved on. Every Now And Then is a musical road map of life featuring heart-wrenching songs like Jackie Greene's title tune, to the jangly rock guitar-drenched What The World Needs to the bouncy duet with Chris Webster, Just Like You. Every Now And Then is a new piece of history, a road map of the long and twisted back-roads of rock that lead us to today.

Legendary Leader of Bay Area’s Beau Brummels and Stoneground.

 

 

TURN AND FADE

Band:DAVE GLEASON
Album:TURN AND FADE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

"Dave Gleason is one of my favorite guitarists. His playing is wise and lyrical but he's also a serious gunslinger. If Dave Gleason walks into the room, I set my guitar down." - Dave Alvin

Timelessness can't be manufactured. Music either cuts across the years, feeling right at home in yesteryear AND the unfolding now, or it doesn't. From the get-go Dave Gleason has crafted songs and executed them in a way that hums timelessly, country rock that'd fit in fine on a scratchy old turntable at Merle Travis house, blasting from an 8-track player in Waylon Jennings' pickup truck or serenading crowds during intermission at a Tom Petty show today. Gleason strikes down to country's hard beating heart and draws out the stuff that's made folks turn to this music for since it wandered out of the Appalachias in the 1930s. Turn and Fade coalesces into his strongest, toughest song cycle to date. Turning the guitar roar up a notch or two, Gleason muses on the things that keep us up at night and the things that keep us moving over the next horizon.

THAT`S WHO

Band:MOTHER\\`S CHILDREN
Album:THAT`S WHO
Label:Deranged
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

From Ottawa Canada, pumping out a unique style of high-energy power pop come MOTHER’S CHILDREN. The four piece got together to start a punk band in the vein of THE BOYS and TEENAGE HEAD with the pop sensibilities of THE RASPBERRIES and THE EASYBEATS, and the stomping rock n’ roll energy of T.REX and SLADE. In their twoyear existence MOTHER’S CHILDREN have played backyards, birthdays, basements, bedrooms, dive bars, concert halls, cottages, parking lots, even on a boat, and have won over the hearts of local audiences with their positive attitude, and relentless love for rock n’ roll. The bubblegum loving punks playing power pop in a modern age are finally starting to receive international attention with their brand new debut album. “That’s Who!” is a slice of pop perfection that stands alone today, but probably would’ve once fit in nicely amongst the STIFF or BOMP! records catalog. The songs are innocent, unpretentious, exciting and filled with unforgettable hooks that sound just as good on your stereo at home as they would on a summer afternoon on the beach, blasting out an AM transistor radio.

Mix the punk venom of some of the more notorious riot grrrl bands of the 90’s with the guitar noodling and tempo of UK post punk by way of John Reis and you get something pretty close to WHITE LUNG.

Band:YOUNG OFFENDERS
Album:LEADER OF THE FOLLOWERS
Label:Deranged
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Experience. It’s a Catch 22. Those young enough to make music in their free time rarely have any unique life experiences to sing about. Those with the battle scars and broken bones put down their instruments and capitulate to “real life.” The Young Offenders’ guitarist Jason recently asked: “When you get to a certain age and you’re a creative person, you’re like, ‘How can I make a fuckin’ living and still not hate myself?’” San Francisco’s Young Offenders’ answer comes in the form of their first record that’s not a split LP or a 7”, inside of eight tightly-knit, dancey, not-scene-or-subgenre-specific songs. You like a little bit of melody in your punk? You like sexy bald brains? You like songs with definite parts, weight of thought, sharp edges, and punch? You like cohesion, the feeling of “Fuck yeah. This is an album. This all fits together”? - THEN THIS IS FOR YOU!

BLOODY GEARS

Band:BLOODY GEARS
Album:BLOODY GEARS
Label:Deranged
Format:VINYL 7\\\\\\\"
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

After a stunning demo last year, Boston’s BLOODY GEARS return with a brilliant 7”. Imagine a more aggressive WIPERS mixed with early ARTICLES OF FAITH and you get something pretty close to BLOODY GEARS. This is a no-brainer – top notch hardcore punk.

MRR had this to say about the demo – “This band already has a sound that's their own, but likely draws from THE OBSERVERS and LEATHERFACE,and there's something very Midwest about these songs as well, making me think of early ARTICLES OF FAITH and HUSKER DU."

A great record...

 

 

SONGS FOR BURNING LOVERS

Band:BURNING LOVE
Album:SONGS FOR BURNING LOVERS
Label:Deranged
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Burning Love started in 2007 as a side project to Cursed and Our Father, with the intention of making some loud and riff driven punk songs and mixing together the sounds of their varying favorites (from Black Flag and Hot Snakes to Kyuss or Turbonegro). BL has since taken to the front burner, touring at home and overseas and releasing two EPs - and now, their Songs For Burning Lovers LP.

"This sinister collaboration spawns a dirtier punk'n'roll-based hardcore outfit than one would anticipate - keenly restrained enough to be melodic but still abrasive and loud" - Keith Carman,

OLD HANDS

Band:MATURE SITUATIONS
Album:OLD HANDS
Label:Deranged
Format:VINYL 7\\\"
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Mature Situations, the band, was borne of the need to trivialize the grievances and tribulations of the elderly, (in a sexual manner where possible), so as to anger karma and preemptively flip off the inevitable pants-shitting, Viagrasnorting, hip-replacing, sour-milk-smelling future of all men. Is nothing sacred? 4 new songs, featuring Chris Colohan (LEFT FOR DEAD , CURSED).

 

 

FAKE MEETS FAILURE

Band:RED DONS
Album:FAKE MEETS FAILURE
Label:Deranged
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

The '00s or whatever you wanna call the last decade is over, and the results are in. Honorable independent publications and the ever growing "blogosphere" outdid themselves with Top 5, Top 10, and Top 100 lists of records that were issued in the last ten years. A common find among these lists was the seminal SO WHAT'S LEFT NOW? LP by Portland, Oregon's THE OBSERVERS released on VINYL WARNING in 2004. The dawn of a new decade is upon us and Doug Burns (Lead singer/songwriter/artist of THE OBSERVERS) has a new band, the RED DONS, featuring Daniel Hajji Husayn, Richard Joachim Preinesberger, and a rotating cast of characters including Justin Maurer (Clorox Girls), Will Kinser (Born/Dead), Zack Brooks (Soda Pop Kids), and Andy Foote (The Physical Challenge). Named after a group of Cambridge professors that operated as spies for the Soviet Union in WW2, the RED DONS continue where the OBSERVERS left off with added elements of Arabic themes in both the artwork and sound. After the much lauded release of their debut album and successfully touring the US, Canada, Europe, and Brazil, the RED DONS entered a Portland studio to record ten new tracks. On this new album FAKE MEETS FAILURE (DERANGED RECORDS / TAKEN BY SURPRISE RECORDS), the band successfully develops their unique style even further. Coded lyrics about vagabond characters moving back and forth between the lines of the current climate of fear and suspicion that has been brought upon the USA by the war on terror. Again, consistent songwriting and a great production make this record stand out among the current competition. Combining TSOL-like vocals, SoCal punk rage, and the defiant melancholy of Pacific Northwesterners like the WIPERS this powerful release rises above the stack of contemporaries that take on the early 80s punk sound. No retro fashion hype, no flavor of the month. When this year turns, be sure to find this LP in the leading spots of Top 5, Top 10 and Top 100 lists of 2010. Though members are now scattered across the globe, the RED DONS will tour the USA in July 2010 and set sail for Europe in the spring of 2011. So What's Left Now? A hell of an aftermath to follow...one hell of a followup record, and one great, fierce force of a touring machine known as RED DONS.

HOLIDAY COPS

Band:STATUES
Album:HOLIDAY COPS
Label:Deranged
Format:LP VINYL
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Canada is so proud of their native sons that the country erected a massive golden monument to the STATUES in the middle of their hometown and sent all cops on holiday so that the punks could dance around it singing 'Hurray Hurray! a new STATUES album saw the light of day!' On this third album, the three Pop-Punk scientists refined their formula in these 10 brand new songs and poured in some drops of DEVO, SPITS and FUTUREHEADS that lets the test tube eruptively foam over with joy, heart, guts and splendid melodies! You want your beloved poppy tunes? You got 'em in 'Holiday cops', 'Reflux' and your new hymn to youth and the weekend 'Young enough'. You need more cool and loud bass lines? Try 'Stop watch' and the critical, exploding 'Self Help Con Job' to satisfy your appetite. After two European tours, I’ve been told we can expect STATUES to venture south of the boarder, possibly for a West Coast tour in late 2010. Statues have toured Europe twice. Most recently in May 2010.

 

 

IT`S THE EVIL

Album:IT`S THE EVIL
Label:Deranged
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

After 3 critically acclaimed 7”s (two of which on DERANGED) and a slight line up change, Vancouver’s WHITE LUNG deliver one fantastic debut album. Mix the punk venom of some of the more notorious riot grrrl bands of the 90’s with the guitar noodling and tempo of UK post punk by way of John Reis and you get something pretty close to WHITE LUNG.

Excalim - "Embodying the sneer and attitude of early L.A. punk bands like X and the Germs, Vancouver, BC's White Lung have blazed a fierce trail over their short career. On the back of two seven-inches, placement on the influential Emergency Room scene comp and a raging live show, the quartet have emerged as one of the city's most promising new bands."

MY NAME IS CHRISTINE

Band:CHRIS WEBSTER
Album:MY NAME IS CHRISTINE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

At the tender age of 4, Chris Webster stood on her mothers old piano bench and began belting our show tunes. It was clear what path this young lady would take in life. Time has passed and Ms. Webster has surely evolved. This retrospective serves as a companion piece to Webster's other new release "Something in the Water." "my name is Christine" is not a "best of" or "greatest hits." It's a scrapbook of music that Chris has recorded through the years with her friends and former bands (Mumbo Gumbo, the Websters) as well as some never-before-heard tunes, all of which have helped shape her musical life through the years that have led up to her current solo career. The songs were personally chosen by Chris to serve as signposts in her musical, personal and emotional growth."my name is Christine" features an amazing array of styles ranging from traditional bluegrass ("Locks and Bolts") to the beautiful standard "Since I Fell For You," and the wacky self-penned "That Chick is Twisted." You'll find the much requested new fan favorite recorded in 2006, "Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What a Wonderful World." Chris' astounding ability to smoothly cross all musical lines makes this a remarkable collection.

Bands happen because they are meant to be...because they contain an energy that simply must find expression.

FOUR PLUS FOUR

Band:ERNIE WATTS
Album:FOUR PLUS FOUR
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

As you can see, there are two Ernie Watts Quartets. (Although definitely only one Ernie!) One quartet is based in California, the other is in Germany. Ernie plays and records with each, but this is the first time both quartets have appeared on the same recording project. 'Four plus Four' was recorded in two places, about nine months apart: the US quartet was in Los Angeles, and the German quartet was in Cologne. Each band plays three tunes, but there is a total of seven, all originals save one gorgeous standard, 'The Ballad of the Sad Young Men'. 'Through My Window,' the Watts/Witham original in the center of the CD, features both bands. The German quartet begins the tune, and in the middle of the piece there is a section left open for improvisation. They improvise for a while, and the engineer gradually fades the tune. Nine months later, the US quartet listens to the music, then improvises with what they hear as it plays, after which they complete the piece. Each group has heard the other play many times through recordings, and the musicians would love to finally meet, and have a chance to play together. But for now, this is the best opportunity. The US quartet has played together for over twenty years now, and the European one for more than ten, each on its own continent. Each group has developed a cohesive, centered, lyrical sound all its own, which shows clearly on the six individual-band tunes. Ernie always says that such a group doesn't 'play' music anymore; it 'becomes' music. On 'Through My Window' these two bands become music together, 'Four plus Four'.

Album:SONGS FOR CESAR LIVE IN PHOENIX
Label:BURNSIDE

THE DYING (AFTER) PARTY

Band:HOLY HAIL
Album:THE DYING (AFTER) PARTY
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Alt Rock

The New York outfit has been turning heads since 2008's debut full-length, Independent Pleasure Club, opening for acts like The Gossip (though that was the band's second show ever), The Rapture & The Kills, and they've managed to keep their electric/rock mix without sounding like those electric/rock bands. Last year's The Dying Party EP took their sound a step further in complexity, but threatened to fall into the aforementioned inaccessible trap. That's why follow-up (After) is so welcome, as it invites everyone to the Party.Not that it's really a ‘party‘ record - Holy Hail are still intricate enough to avoid the overt, and there's a distance to the EP in its echoes, from the epic call of opener "Riverine" on through. The sustain can veer into the garage at times, such as the almost country-like portions of "Riverine", where co-vocalist Cat Hartwell comes to the fore, to the quieter and less special "On Tippy Toes". (After) does swerve between the more atmos-tech such as "Painted Bird" and more rock-grounded "Days of Metro", but can also meet somewhere in the middle, like the jungle beats-with-rock underpinnings "Feels Like Forever". Which side you like more depends on the listener, but the speed of "Days" and echo-sustain base of "Good Intentions" can be praised by anyone.

 

 

VINTAGE BLOOD

Band:COLD BLOOD
Album:VINTAGE BLOOD
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

The only live Cold Blood performance on the market, this is 42 minutes of championship funk blues and soul from the band at its peak in 1973. Lydia Pense tears up some of the best songs from the Cold Blood canon.

 

 

LIVE BLOOD

Band:COLD BLOOD
Album:LIVE BLOOD
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

The word legend certainly applies to Lydia Pense & Cold Blood - and not in some past-tensemake- a-living-as-an-oldies-act sort of way either. Pense still shouts like a 60's soul diva and can purr a slow blues tune with spine-tingling subtlety. This is a band with a storied past and an exciting future. Over the past four decades, Lydia and the band have continued to meld R&B, funk and soul. Along the way, together with their equally funky friends, Tower Of Power, Cold Blood forged a new sound which came to be known as East Bay Grease. Live Blood was recorded at the Sunbanks Music Festival in Washington State, and captures the band in their most natural of habitats: on stage and smokin'. This raucous recording features Cold Blood powering through some of their most recognized tunes such as "I'm A Good Woman," "You Got Me Hummin'," and "I Just Wanna Make Love To You." To balance this sweat-soaked session they also deliver a few from their recent studio recording Transfusion and top things off with a new R&B masterpiece, "Can't Take It (Don't Give A Damn)" written by the great Lavelle White. Live Blood is what Cold Blood fans have been waiting for: lightning in a bottle, laid down by a tight six-piece band and fronted by the incomparable Ms. Pense. Cold Blood continues to draw from their heritage without being stifled by their past, and all the while boasting a reinvigorated groove that will make you sweat, dance, and smile...all at the same time.

 

 

TRANSFUSION

Transfusion is Cold Bloods first studio album on DIG Music, showcasing Original Cold Blood vocalist Lydia Pense and featuring guest duties from Michelle Shocked and The Tower of Power Horns.

 

 

WELL AFTER AWHILE

Band:SHINY RIBS
Album:WELL AFTER AWHILE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

We all know Kevin 'Shinyribs' Russell is a loose cannon. How else to explain covers of R. Kelly's Feelin' on Yo Booty, and Elvis Costello's Indoor Fireworks in the same night. Most folks who follow such things consider his outfit, The Gourds, one of the best live bands in the land, in large part because of Russell's brazen eccentricites and creative syntax. However, the most overlooked thing about Russell is that when he plays it straight - as he does for most of his new Shinyribs record Well After Awhile - the man can produce some of the funkiest and most beautiful roots music on the planet. It's not to say the ''psycholiteranaut w/8 AA batteries-tweed facade-equal parts Waylon Jennings, Robert Rauschenberg and Harvey Korman'' (to quote his Twitter feed) doesn't dig into his bag of twistedness here. But a listen to the straight-up duet Shores Of Gallilee (with Sally Allen), the sweet quasi-fable Who Built The Moon, or the intimate cover of Sam Cooke's A Change Is Gonna Come that closes the record, shows that even when Russell puts aside some of the tricks, he delivers grade-A Country Soul.

 

 

GARDEN OF WORM

Band:GARDEN OF WORM
Album:GARDEN OF WORM
Label:Shadow Kingdom
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Finally the time has come for Garden Of Worm to release a full length album. For quite some time now they've been slowly putting out demos and Eps since 2004 to experiment and carve out their own unique brand of Heavy / Progressive Doom Metal. I'd say they've definitely found their own dramatic sound here with this new material. The elements of Progressive is very dominate, with sounds that range from upbeat to mournful in a blink of an eye. This is an extremely wavy ride to get on and it's going to require repeated listens and your undivided attention to fully absorb and appreciate this work of art. REVELATION / AGAINST NATURE fans will probably be attracted to this album the most as it's similar in the approach, but the execution pans out to be much different.

Finnish Doom Metal classic. Fans of Reverend Bizarre, Revelation, Rush, Sabbath...

 

 

THE PASSAGE

Band:IRON MAN
Album:THE PASSAGE
Label:Shadow Kingdom
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Coming into the 2nd album, IRON MAN ended up replacing their singer Rob Levey with a different and arguably better singer, Dan Michalak. Dan sings in a much higher register than Rob did and this definitely pushes IRON MAN to the top of their game. Al Morris continues to write crushing riffs on this album and with the combination of that, plus the new singer, I see this album being a fan favorite. This release includes a re-mastered version of the original release, plus a bonus (promo) video of the song “Iron Warrior”, and a separate DVD that includes a ton of live stuff.

Classic Black Sabbath styled Doom Metal.

 

 

AFTER MIDNIGHT LIVE

Band:MANILLA ROAD
Album:AFTER MIDNIGHT LIVE
Label:Shadow Kingdom
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Manilla Road, the grandfathers of Epic Heavy Metal are truly a remarkable band in the history of Heavy Metal. This release marks a time period before the break out of their first album "Invasion". These 5 songs mark the 2nd half of their very long radio show on a cold, snowy night in the winter of December 1979. Luckily the 2nd half of the show has all the unreleased Manilla Road songs fans are dying to hear. These songs represent the "Invasion" sound and the start of one of the greatest Heavy Metal bands in the history of Heavy Metal. There's 5 Epic songs, transferred straight off the master tapes untouched, raw, and with antique charm.

The grandfathers of Epic Heavy Metal.

 

 

VISIONS OF THE HAUNTED

Band:CROWNED IN EARTH
Album:VISIONS OF THE HAUNTED
Label:Shadow Kingdom
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Crowned in Earth was formed by Kevin Lawry in 2008. After forming his own Death / Doom band, Silent Winter, Kevin decided to venture more into the traditional side of Doom and Epic Doom Metal, drawing his main influences from Reverend Bizarre, Cathedral, and Black Sabbath. After a self-released EP (on CD-R) the foundation was laid down to make a bigger step into creating a full-length album with a stronger focus on the songwriting. With the progress of the new songs coming along, the recruit of drummer Darin McCloskey (Pale Divine, Falcon, ex Sinister Realm) stepped into play on the album. With the distance of 2 guys, you wouldn’t be able to tell they weren’t in the same room while this was recorded. The songs remind me (but really hard to pinpoint) of a blend of a few different styles, like Reverend Bizarre, Lord Vicar, The Obsessed, with a small dose of Italian Horror church organs like Paul Chain, Black Hole, or Death SS might put together, but with a cleaner recording. The album is extremely well produced considering the nature of how this all came together.

Band:TRAUMATIC
Album:LAST KIDS FROM NOWHERE
Label:TRAUMATIC ALMA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

The Traumatic were born in 1979 from the ashes of two of the Italy's first punk bands: "Mal di Testa" (Headache) and "Young Visionaries". They played as support to several famous British and German bands like 'Discharge', 'UK Subs' and they were often appreciated more than the famous ones. This record is a 'best of' of the band including all their anthems since 1979 and recorded from the original line-up in 1988. The Traumatic were probably one of the few Italian groups, without an Anglo-Saxon base, able to reach the power of the Anglo-Saxon sound and songwriting ability. The impact of songs like “No police, no army”, “Time is gone” and “Last kids from nowhere” are true and proper assaults that not many were able to achieve.

Sub Luna is a Swedish duo formed by Mikael Lindblom (also a live collaborator for Karjalan Sissit) and Fredrik Sooberg. After four years of silence they return with their new album Awake!

On this second album Sub Luna are merging the more traditional elements of the dark folk genre with influences from the world of pop and rock and thus avoid falling into trappings of the genre. Awake! Also symbolically marks the ending of one era and the beginning of another. These are songs of love and hate, nostalgia and progression, magic and loss... songs of protest from the age of nihilism. With a guest vocal appearance by Ann-Mari Thim (Arcana) and Mastering done by Peter Bjargo. Mesmerizing quality Folk Noir brought to you through Cyclic Law's new "Eclipse Series". Edition of 1000 copies in 4 Panel Digipack.

THAT WAS THEN THIS IS NOW

Band:REX CARROLL BAND
Album:THAT WAS THEN THIS IS NOW
Label:Retroactive
Format:CD
Genre:Blues

Like a lumbering freight train, The Rex Carroll Band got started slowly (they have been playing live shows since 2004) following the success of 80’s Christian metal legends, Whitecross, where Rex established himself as a guitar virtuoso of epic proportions (2 Dove Awards & 5 consecutive HM Readers Guitar Hero Awards). But, Rex grew up in the 70’s rock scene where he was profoundly influenced by blues and southern rock standouts like The Allman Brothers Band, ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix. It is with great joy that Retroactive Records releases That Was Then,This is Now as the debut disc from this Chicago power trio that fuses Rex’s fierce guitar skills with soulful, imaginative and heavy blues. “Foolsgold” is a scorching guitar instrumental showcasing Rex’s axeman-ship full scale (ala Eddie Van Halen or Yngwie Malmsteen) and it serves as the perfect intro to the riff-heavy “Working Man Blues”. While this album will appeal to fans of Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Stevie Ray Vaughn, the mind-blowing, bluesy guitar heroics from start to finish establish The Rex Carroll Band as the choice band for those looking for air guitar inspiration! Get your leather vest and fire up your Harley Davidson, because the blues tradition has just been elevated to a new level.

 

 

VISION 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Band:VISION
Album:VISION 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
Label:Retroactive
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

The band recorded their southern/progressive rock masterpiece debut Mountain In the Sky (1984) in Pat Travers’ studio. The ’84 Vision release features Lynyrd Skynyrd members, Leon Wilkeson (bass) and Billy Powell (piano), who were trying to cope with life after the tragic 1977 plan crash that killed three members of Skynyrd (and injuring the others) while the band was at the height of its popularity. Powell would tell the story of how Wilkeson had been pronounced dead at the scene when a “spirit-filled nurse laid hands on him and raised him from the dead.” Vision was where both men would find further healing, strength and help from the Almighty. Powell would continue playing with Vision after the band signed with Heartland Records for a sophomore self-titled release in 1985. Five tracks from the debut would be completely re-recorded from the ground up, with significant differences in arrangement and production now that they were with a major label. Five other newly penned songs were also recorded, one of which was the anthemic “Standing On the Rock” which Heaven’s Metal Magazine editor Doug Van Pelt would go on to claim was, “one of the absolute best Christian rock songs of the era.” Powell's keyboards, which made Skynyrd's sound one of the most distinctive in rock and roll history, help Vision’s sound resonate with power and authority. Marshall’s crystal-clear rock voice (a la Steve Perry or Dennis DeYoung) brings clarity to a powerful message that continues to inspire and move people today. Vision put together all the necessities of a truly great rock band, combining elements of art rock with solid guitar-driven stadium rock. Marshall and company created a unique sound all their own that still sounds good 25+ years after it was first recorded! With prime riff-rockers from start to finish, this album is rock perfection. Steve Holland (founder of Molly Hatchett) is quoted as saying, "Vision - I don't need no stinking Vision. I'm blind as a bat as it is....but this old bat has great hearing! And that's all you need to know with these guys! Wow!” Beyond the tragedy, the history, the raging guitars and the killer songs, ultimately, VISION is about an indomitable will; about survival of spirit; unbowed, uniquely American and stubbornly resolute. After 10 years of reissuing Christian rock and metal classics, this long out-of-print album has consistently been one of our most requested reissues. That’s why the label is thrilled to reissue it on CD for the very first time, remastered, with exclusive and insightful liner notes and 100% rock! For fans of Kansas, Styx, Mylon LeFevre and Lynyrd Skynyrd!

 

 

MOUNTAIN IN THE SKY COLLECORS EDITION

Band:VISION
Album:MOUNTAIN IN THE SKY COLLECORS EDITION
Label:Retroactive
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

In 1983, an Assembly of God youth pastor in Florida asked some of his kids to form a band and put on a concert for their youth group. Before long this youth group band would include people of great fame and notoriety who would give great witness of what God had done in their lives. Lead singer Rocco Marshall’s long-time friend, Leon Wilkeson (bassist from Lynyrd Skynyrd) joined the band. Before long, Leon’s Skynyrd bandmate, pianist Billy Powell, was in jail for a 5th DUI and he asked Leon to visit him. Leon played Billy a Vision song called “Fight the Good Fight”. The song had such a powerful effect on Billy that he immediately joined the band! Vision now had an impressive pedigree, featuring two members of mainstream rock super-stars, Lynyrd Skynyrd! By 1984, the band would record their debut record as a custom self-titled release (now titled Mountain In The Sky, recorded in world renown guitarist Pat Travers’ studio with the Full Sail Dream Machine). With no distribution or promotion, this ’84 release has been ultra rare and collectors have been willing to pay hundreds of dollars for this classic rock masterpiece. The album is 9 songs of wallto- wall brilliance – chock full of explosive vocal arrangements and indelible guitar riffs. Clearly cut from the Seventies, (Kansas, Boston, Blue Oyster Cult) Vision knew how to bring it with infectious hooks, marked progressive rock edges and a huge, biting, melodic guitar attack full of hope-filled lyrics that cut to the heart! The Collector’s Edition exclusive bonus tracks for the Born Twice Records release are two powerful testimonies from Leon and Billy, sharing from their hearts about the difference God made in their lives. This super-star studded band would go on to release a second album on Heartland Records in 1985 featuring several songs from Mountain In The Sky that were completely rerecorded (and quite different) for that album.

THE FALL COLLECTORS EDITION

Band:KING JAMES
Album:THE FALL COLLECTORS EDITION
Label:Retroactive
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Formed from the ashes of the '80s Christian rock band Whitecross is King James, established by guitarist Rex Carroll in the early '90s. Carroll, who is a two-time winner of the Dove Award as well as a five-time HM Magazine Critic's Darling for his fierce guitar work, wanted another creative piece in which he could musically develop. Together, with vocalist Jimi Bennett (ex-Sacred Fire, Viktor) and Stryper alumni, Robert Sweet and Tim Gaines, King James was born and soon inked a deal with Star Song Records to release their eponymous debut in 1993. Four years later, after a long break and regrouping, King James issued the sophomore effort entitled The Fall in 1997. The 2010 Collector’s Edition from Retroactive Records includes a much needed facelift with all new artwork in addition to a full-metal remaster by the amazing J Powell (Titanic, Final Axe, Bride and Malice). This album was originally released in Europe, then twice in the USA – and they sold so fast that this classic has been out of print for almost ten years. That means it’s a great album and there’s demand for it! The music is mean and the guitars are nasty, reminiscent of the aggressive metal of Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Holy Soldier and Black Sabbath. The Fall features a haunting, ponderous sound that sometimes flirts with the sophisticated progressive elegance of Queensryche. It’s definitely a moody, portentous affair, filled with plenty of inspired riffing from Rex and hair-tossed wailing from Jimi!

Label:VIVA HATE
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT was founded in February 2009 by Nikita and Tobias in Würzburg, Bavaria (Germany) with the release of the band's first selt-titled record. However, the concept and idea that underlie DWEF were formed someone and a half years earlier, when, following the disbandment of predecessor band FROSTGRIM, there continued to exist the creative urge to express oneself lyrically and musically through melodic and atmospheric Black Metal. Due to their debut record selling out almost immediately and based on the enthusiastic reception it received from the audience, plans for a re-release were taken into consideration. In VIVA HATE RECORDS, DWEF have ultimately found the right partner to pursue this enterprise. The debut got rerecorded and the band added real drum recordings, done by Heaven Shall Burn’s live drummer Christian Bass who is now 100% band member of DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT.

DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT founded the new generation of GERMAN BLACK METAL!!!

LIVE IN DEUTSCHLAND 2002

Band:SAVIOUR MACHINE
Album:LIVE IN DEUTSCHLAND 2002
Label:Retroactive
Format:dvd
Genre:Metal

Ever since the band's debut independent release in 1990, they have been amassing one of the most loyal and dedicated fan base of any metal band in history. In 2002 the band released a 2 DVD set with many, many extras. This DVD set does not disappoint on any level. Disc 1 is the 2002 concert in Owen, Germany and includes music from all three released parts of the Legend trilogy. Conversely, disc 2 includes several special features (including a photo gallery of the band from 1992-2002, a behind-the-scenes documentary and a couple other odds and ends) as well as the original 75 minute "Live in Deutschland" concert video from 1995. Saviour Machine proves that you can be Christian and Gothic. It is a tightrope act, but it can be done. Some Christian gothic bands tend to fall more to one side or the other in that they either fail to have real spiritual content or they fail to achieve a genuinely Gothic expression, but Eric Clayton and Saviour Machine have succeeded in doing both very well. The spiritual content is presented in a very Gothic way. Saviour Machine has always been the leaders in the theatrical, drama, charisma, and symbolism. Nothing has been left to chance. Everything is intentional. Everything comes from the Biblical perspective with a genuinely creative and Gothic spirit. The music is bold. The message is massive. And, the presentation is stunning. These original issue DVD sets have been out of print for years and years, now made available once again!
