Daily Bandcamp Album; Crooked by Orbiter

“An Oslo-based heavy rock trio, Orbiter are on a mission to pay homage to, and challenge, heavy music, combining aggressive metal with laid-back jam rock.”

Holy hell is this short and sweet or what? This is some very good laid out aggressive jams. Head pounding, that’s for sure.

YOU’VE JUST STEPPED INTO A TIME MACHINE, AND IF ALL IS RIGHT… WELCOME TO 1976.

Drawing inspiration from proto to vintage Heavy Metal, as well as from the imaginary of the movies & comics of the same era, WRECK PLUS is proud to present its second studio EP, somberly titled DARK CONSTRUKTOR. Continue reading

Daily Bandcamp Album; The Villain by the Got It Got It Need It

“the GOT IT GOT IT NEED IT play rock & roll that’s been stripped down to its amazing, ungodly racket of a core. Shuddering their way through influences like dirty garage rock, the slow, heavy heat of Morphine and the delta blues, this is a band fearlessly throwing back shots of the raw-spirited music that they play.” Continue reading

Daily Bandcamp Album; The Apocalypse Trilogies by Ol’ Time Moonshine

It’s been awhile since I’ve heard Ol’ Time Moonshine. Their last album came out over 3 years ago and I remember it being quite the boot stomper. Now they have a new album upon us and it makes their previous album seem like child’s play. The new album is heavy, aggressive and lies where in the realm of a Red Fang, Clutch, Orange Goblin type hybrid. The guitars sear through Continue reading

Daily Bandcamp Album; Wet Moon by Mother Island

“Mother Island is a surreal, whimsical and lunatic space where six musicians resurface their primary and dawning influences. Mother Island is “A Magic Theatre, For Madmen Only”. Mother Island is all in the eyes of the men.” Continue reading

On The Sixth Day of Christmas…..

cody-jinks-im-not-the-devil…My true love sent to me, I’m Not The Devil by Cody Jinks.

Cody Jinks first entered my radar last year when he released his most excellent Adobe Sessions album. I was told to check the album out based on my likeness for Sturgill Simpson’s and Whitey Morgan’s music. I liked the album so much that it ended up being one of my favorite non rock releases of 2015. I honestly wasn’t expecting a new album until 2017 at the very earliest so to find out that a new album was coming in August was quite welcoming.

I had wondered how the new album would hold up to Continue reading

On The Fourth Day of Christmas…..

blueside by child… My true love sent to me…. Blueside by CHILD.

Wow. Simply…..breathtaking. Seriously. Blueside is the second release by Melbourne, Australia’s own CHILD. It is a hell of an album, so damn good that words can hardly describe how wonderful this album is.

The band’s first album was something that got a lot of people talking. Many people, myself included, couldn’t put it down, all for good reason too. It was just a wonderful gem. I know of at least 3 different labels that were interested in signing these guys. Kozmik Artifactz ended up signing them to a physical Continue reading

On The First Day of Christmas…..

sturgill-simpson-a-sailors-guide-to-earth…My true love sent to me, Sturgill Simpson’s A Sailor’s Guide To Earth. 

Back in 2014 when Sturgill released his phenomenal Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, I was one of the many people that took notice. Sturgillmania was full steam ahead and I was right along for the ride. In early 2015 Sturgill announced that he signed with Atlantic Records. Was a new record on the way? Yes, eventually. Over a year went by before it was announced that Sturgill would finally release a new album in April.

After releasing the first two singles, including a cover of Nirvana’s “In Bloom” he really got people talking. This wasn’t country sounding. It wasn’t like anything that was on Continue reading
