Who wants some Fuzz???

"Mother Mars came into existence in 2002. They lean more towards a sound of heavy fuzzed-out grooves while also taking in elements of the psychedelic and doom.
They are based in Sydney, Australia and have been playing shows since 2003. In mid 2007 they released an ep called ‘Take The Ride’, an album ‘Primitives’ in early 2009 and in May 2011 a second full-length release ‘Fossil Fuel Blues’. Featuring almost an hour of stoner-doom riffery and psychedelic mayhem, Fossil Fuel Blues is the first Mother Mars release as a three-piece and is overall a big step forward for the band. Fossil fuel Blues can be purchased form Timewarp Records and Kozmik Artifactz. Primitives can also be purchased from Kozmik Artifactz. Take The Ride and Primitives are available digitally from such stores as iTunes, Amazon Mp3, Napster and Zune. Also check out mothermars.bandcamp.com where you can download Take The Ride and the tune ‘Atmospheric Analysis’ which is an out-take from 2010." ~ (Last.FM)

Lo-Pan. Red Line Tap, Chicago. 8-27-11

Went to see Lo-Pan a few nights ago. They kicked ass! Great bunch of guys. Enjoy some pic's from the show...

Sample the goods...

How do you define man? Define morals? Define living?
To have to fight one's instincts is decadence.
As long as life is ascending, happiness equals instincts.
Whatever has being does not become. Whatever becomes does
not have being.
There must be mere appearance. There must be some deception which prevents us from perceiving that which has being.
How do you define man? Define morals? Define living?
Who is the deceiver?

FREE Tunes,,,,

"You can download the entire album “Lost and Gone Forever” through the Link below. It is free if you want it to be, or you can leave us a tip to help support the costs of being an independent band. Just download, unzip the file, and drag and drop into iTunes or whatever digital media player you use. All you have to give is your email and zip code so that we know where our fan base is picking up, and so we can update you on future shows in your area."

Thanks for the support! - DTES

"Dream The Electric Sleep (DTES) is a progressive, concept-rock band from Lexington, KY. Drawing from a variety of influences that include Genesis, Rush, Killing Joke, Philip Glass, Neurosis, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, U2, and Black Sabbath, DTES present an abnormally eclectic mix of genres and musicality. In late 2009, DTES started work on a concept album (two years in the making) that explores the trials and tribulations of an Eastern Kentucky coal miner and his wife. The result is the band's debut LP, "Lost and Gone Forever" - a genre-bending opus that not only reflects the bands mixed bag of influences, but charters some new territories as well."

Hump Day Special...

"Concrete Sun is a five-piece band from Novi Sad, Serbia. “Southern sludge ‘n’ grunge” is probably the closest you can get in an attempt to put us into a genre, but there’s a lot more to the story than just that. Our music is a blend of southern rock, blues, stoner, groove, sludge and grunge, characterized by bluesy melodies, sharp vocals and heavy riffage." ~ (Last.FM)

Our debut 2011 album Sky Is High is available fora a FREE download, get it Here

Don't ask for advice...

More Indie Rock Than Post-Rock in my opinion, Stock Options 2011 S/T is Instrumental Bliss. Ex-members of Forstella Ford, God & The Baby Jesuses, Disguised as Birds, and Bound to One.

"These songs were recorded live, without overdubbing, on May 22nd of 2011 by us in our practice space in Milwaukee, WI."

"Hailing from Milwaukee, WI – Stock Options draws its influences from sources as varied as Black Sabbath, Bad Brains and DC post-hardcore – a variation which sometimes makes it difficult to confine their sound to one genre, influence or scene."

"The foundation of this rotten sludge, is the riff worship of bands like Black Sabbath, Sleep and St Vitus, with the influence of Black Flag sitting underneath, to give that nihilistic air, and fog of feedback, that permeates most of Eyehategod’s output. This is the soundtrack to alligator wrestling in a Louisiana swamp, cheered on by a mob of whiskey-fuelled reprobates."

Let Her Roar!!!

"HOWLIN’ WIDOW are a band "into the spirit and attitude of bands like BLUE CHEER, PENTAGRAM, BLACK SABBATH and THE STOOGES". Formed in 2007 as a four piece, and remaining so until March 2009 when Jason opted to step back from vocals and concentrate on guitar. Shortly after this Tom Clarke announced the break-up of BAD BOAT (2002-2009) and was invited to sit in on HOWLIN' WIDOW rehearsals. Soon after he joined full-time as vocalist and lyricist in the band. With the line-up now complete and new songs written the band decided it was time to get in the studio.
In April 2010 the band recorded three tracks at My First Recorder in Belfast, which were released as the 'Howlin’ Widow EP' in June of that year." ~ (Excerpt from Irish-Metal Archives)

Post-Apocalypse Now...

"Evil Bebos is strange. Their second full length record is stranger. Hailing from dark psychedelic destinations most avoid, “The Stranger” is a blackened concoction brewed from blood soaked ritual and sun baked lunacy. Crushing riffage combines with nauseous synth work in a constantly unfolding journey of a strange prophet exiled into the wasteland to face the demons of insanity in total isolation."

Exist are a Progressive Death Metal Band from Fredrickburg, Maryland. Their music is available free at their website and is streamed at their Bandcamp. So how cool is that? You still here?

It all comes to an end...

"DEAD EMPIRES is a three-piece heavy progressive post-metal band from the Hudson Valley, NY. While the band is currently instrumental, they choose not to label themselves as such- the sound is ever-evolving, and they’d prefer to put out music that is organic, natural, passionate- rather than stick to a particular genre. The band likes to combine a wide range of influences to produce a sound that sways from epic, ethereal soundscapes to heavy post-rock riffs, rounded out with good old fashioned sludgy heaviness. The seeds of the band were planted in a jam session in early 2009 while the members were in other bands. They decided to make a go of it and formed the band in early 2010.

The band released a 4-song demo EP CD titled “Monuments” in early 2011, recorded by Will Riggs at Bigg Rigg Studios (myspace.com/biggriggstudios) and mastered by Bumblefoot (bumblefoot.com). A limited first (and only)pressing of the EP includes a digipack with expanded artwork, a bonus track, and more directly from the band. DEAD EMPIRES has played a handful of shows in 2010/11 following the release of the EP. The band has already begun work on new music to be debuted at their live shows.

"These lads from England are fond of Audioslave, Rage Against The Machine, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Kyuss , and their music is a testimony of the lesson learned from the aforementioned masters with a little blend of metal over here and a little blend of southern rock over there.

Taking their name from the Fall Of The English Empire, and described as being a cross between Audio Slave and Alice In Chains, Dead Empire have made huge inroads on the Southern rock english scene." (B-Camp)
