The Gun Slingers...

It's Bands Like Southern Train Gypsy that in this day and age, with the trying times most people are having, these guys come along and make a beast of an Album then put it out there for only $5 Bucks. It's Southern Fried Metal from the dirty South, being the great state of Texas, where everything is BIG.

"SOUTHERN TRAIN GYPSY is a band with nothing to prove other than kicking ass. On their self-produced, debut album, Hallelujah in the Fire, these Texans ride the demon straight to the pits of hell with their style of sludgy, southern rock. So if you don't give a shit about personal grooming, or pretty boy antics, then join the Gypsy Nation."

Swedish Sludge.

"Blekinge, the name of the part of Sweden Signo Rojo hails from loosely translates to “Pale nothing”… That could be seen as somewhat indicative of the national character of the nation that has spawned some of the best harder-edged musical groups around these last decades. Also cheap furniture.

Signo Rojo is an entity with both fleet firmly planted. One foot is anchored in the deep sludge of southern USA and the other planted in the ethereal world of introspective post-metal. The dangly bits inbetween have, on the other hand, been dipping into a wide variety of places. Be it crust-punk, doom-metal, classic prog or hardrock, Signo Rojo’s privates has had an intimate history with it.

The Band proper was formed in the late autumn of 2009, when the four members met at a local metal-show. They began writing almost immediatly and spent the following winter and spring cooked up in the rehersalroom constructing and shaping a dynamic live-set that continues to evolve to this day. The following summer they started their crusade of gathering as much live experience as possible with their hopes set high on a touring future. A hardworking band is a healthy band and Signo Rojo craves the excitement, the energy and the positive social interactions you only get at a live show." (Last.FM)

From the new Psych Ward...

Hypatia Lake are a Stoner/Psych Band out of Seattle. Ouroboros is their new creation and what a beaut it is.

"Hypatia Lake are a Seattle based band that creates a psychedelic sound wall of drone and calming ambiances amalgamated into a fluctuating pallet of noise and some elements of shoegaze. The band conceives itself as an abstraction, manifesting the ethereal space in which the concept of subtle intensity exist in every element of their sound. " (Last.FM)

This shit kicks so much ass, it's hard to put it to words, so I won't even try...

Quote from Forge Again Records:
“Some words pinpoint a band’s sound perfectly. One such word is ‘loud’ and one such band is FATHER PHOENIX. Sonically blasting a hard edge of rock into the audio wall of their listeners’ ears, the band recently added an organ to fill things out and add an even more intense element of psychedelia to their new material. Features former members of Call Me Lightning, Temper Temper, and Insidious.”

The gleam of the Mothership in the distant galaxy promised a future to music and mankind alike. Without the intergalactic journey, the legacy of rock music dies." (Band Bio)

Know Your Enemy...

"Chris and Aaron, the two constant members of Spiral are desert born. They played childish games amongst dunes and cacti and now, their music breathes sand."

"The seeds of this album were planted when Chris sat down with the “The Capital in Ruins” master tracks hoping to make a b-side for the single edit of the song “The Capital in Ruins”. He got stuck on one small part of the song, morphing it with effects and splicing until it became a completely different beast, which eventually became the b-side “Artifacts” on the single Ruins. He was happy and moved on, but this haunting trance like tune kept calling him back, so finally he asked Aaron if he was willing to take a detour from recording the follow up album to “The Capital in Ruins”, a sprawling progressive double album tentatively titled “The Traveler”, which continues the story of Rip, the main character in Ruins. Aaron was fine with it and jumped on board. Casey, Spiral’s lead guitarist was taking a small leave of absence to do some musical directing for a local play, so he is only featured on one track from this record.

Aaron and Chris began to expand on the song, recording new parts and following wherever the music led them. Soon they found themselves recording completely new tracks and dipping into the archives to find great musical moments from abandoned projects. The only thread that held the music together was its darkness. Halloween was coming up, so they decided to release the record as a Halloween album. Fans of “The Capital in Ruins” will find this to be an altogether different sound. Regular fans of Spiral will recognize elements of “The Death of Billy Jensen” and “machine” on this record.

So here it is in all its dark glory: Spiral’s holiday record. Enjoy and turn it up loud!"

Scream Your Head Off...

Moloken are a Post-metal/Sludge Band from Holmsund/Umeå, Västerbottens län, Sweden.

"Moloken is a metal band from the very north of Sweden. Driven to create something of their own they have started somewhat of a buzz in the scandinavian underground scene over the last two years. Inspired by the 90's death/doom & black metal era together with 70's progressive rock they have manged to create a unique sound and musical approach.

The band was formed in Umeå autumn 2007 with the intention to create heavy, slow, progressive and disharmonic metal. They quickly recorded their debut ' We All Face the Dark Alone' and EP which was released within a year after their birth in august 2008. The record got great reviews from both for critics and the underground scene, the band played over 23 shows the first year of existance.

Their second offspring, the fullength album ”Our Astral Circle” was released in september 2009. The album uncovered more musical depth with a fine balance between harmony and disharmony. An ambivalent musical experience of both epic and straight-on songs, some with intense vocals, others more mellow and almost totally instrumental. The album recieved even higher scores through out the european metal/hardcore press and the bands strong intent to play live resulted in over 50 shows during the following one and a half years.

Now a new full-lenght album, consisting of 7 songs, is due to be recorded in November/December 2010. On the yet untitled album they digg even further into their musical landscape displaying a slower but rougher, faster and harder, darker but more ambient and exprimental twist on their already intricate foundation. 2011 will be the rise of a new era..." ~ (Myspace)

Welcome to Stoners Island, Here's your sack and headphones man...

"Loud is an Indonesian rock band formed in December 2008. Consists of Haikal Azizi (vocal/guitar),Nurachman Andhika (guitar), Mirfak Prabowo (bass) and Risyad Tabattala (drums). Mainly influenced by the two founding fathers of heavy metal, the almighty Led Zeppelin and the god of heavy riffs, Black Sabbath. Loud mentions their music as freud blues rock, the word freud comes from the infamous neurologist, Sigmund Freud, whom they admired so much for his unconscious mind and the defense mechanism theory. They believe that the music they make are coming spontaneously from their unconscious mind. They changed their name to Sigmun after some issues about the similarity of their name with an english hard rock band, which was formed in 1989. the new name of course also came from the wicked neurologist himself.

Referring to their influences, most of their songs are based on riffs covered with distortion and overflowing echoes. They describe their sound as “bringing a high gain amplifier and drums into a cave”.

the basslines are almost progressive but raw and primitive at the same time, the drumming moves fierce and violent on high tempo and in a sudden could turn calm into a drowning bluesy beats, while the vocals sounded like chants and moans, obviously affected by Plant and Ozzy . while they altogether religiously worshiped the Zeppelin and the Sabbath, each member also have their own musical background. mirfak have always been a fan of the grunge god Nirvana, the highspeed aggression of Motorhead and anything masculine, while nurrahman is a heavy metal geek who embrace the holy father Dio , Iron Maiden and the uncanny Uriah Heep. haikal adores the psychedelic echoes and progressions of Pink Floyd, the complexions of Robert Fripp and the zestful spirit of Jack Whites screech, risyad on the other hand has always been a disciple of Johny Rotten and the likes of raw punk rock, also highly toxicated by heavy local acts such as Seringai and Koil.

their interest in sigmund freud concepts of unconscious mind and their love for the whimsical world of surrealism are evidently showing in their lyrics. enjoying the exploration of absurdism and juxtaposition in their writings, Dali, Magritte and Chirico might have influenced them as much as Page and Iommi did, paintings made out of hazy poetry and heavy echoed chords. they might say that the lyrics are mainly about human nature and social life, but then again who could ever guess what’s behind their unconscious mind?"

Do You Hear Them, There's Zombies Down There...

This was a pretty cool find. More please...

"Zombies And Diamonds mid-2008 was born in La Vega Baja (Alicante) following interest Gustavo Rodriguez (drums) and Miguel Hernandez (guitar) to explore musical areas away from punk-rock coming to practice with his band The Assbreakers. After a few trials and attempts to define the sound of the band joins them battle mate Juan Ballester, who happens to handle the bass and vocals. Complies and the trio that will define the first stage of the band, period of creative ferment in which they recorded their first demo ZAD three themes (with John as a sound engineer) in studies Sunnday of Murcia, in the course of a warm August night. In the following months the band focuses on material composition, discarding what is not considered suitable and treasuring of the songs that would shape his first album. In turn play concerts in the Alicante and Murcia, accompanied among others, bands like King Brothers (Japan) and The Cynics (USA). Not until the spring of 2009 the band decided to release their vocal duties to John who will focus on bass and backing vocals, and invite Filiu Adrian (friend of the band and vocalist in another group of the area) join the group. It is because of the incorporation of Filiu hardens when the band sound, embracing new styles such as Punk Rock, Hard Rock or 70's psychedelia. Already in autumn 2009, with Filiu established as front man, the band decided to re-enter Sunnday Studios to record their first LP. Again with Juan Ballester at the controls of the mixer, ZAD recorded eleven songs, ten of which will shape Walk With Me!, For which the band is self and is responsible for every creative aspect from the composition to the design of the artwork. Walk With Me! was self-released by the band in 2010, and is available for listening on Spotify, iTunes, Last.FM and Amazon among others."
