Hello Crew,

This edition of Getting Laid at Bandcamp is going to be a little bit different from my past posts. This edition has a bit of a soft spot to it. Yes, Tyree has a soft spot. Unfortunately. Don’t worry though, there’s still some crushing metal too, just not as much as usual. I hope you enjoy nonetheless.

 

Muscle and Marrow – The Human Cry

Muscle and Marrow are a Portland, Oregon duo consisting of vocalist/guitarist Kira Clark and drummer Keith McGraw that play some beautiful yet bleak-sounding female-fronted gothic occult sludge. Muscle and Marrow slowly bleed sorrow in The Human Cry and mesmerize with every sung word.


 

Mansion – Shall Live

Mansion from Turku, Finland play haunting, atmospheric female-fronted occult rock. We Shall Live was the first release that I heard from Mansion and I was completely blown away by it. Alma’s voice is something to be heard, so go ahead and hit play.


 

Ides of Gemini – The Disruption Writ

Watch out for Ides of Gemini’s new 2014 album Old World New Wave, which will be released on September 16 via Neurot Recordings. This LA trio plays some beautiful PSYCHIC reverb-induced doom/sludge with clean female vocals. Until Ides of Gemini’s new album gets released, go ahead and listen to this EP, The Disruption Writ.


 

Allysen Callery – Folk Radio UK Session 2014 EP

Allysen Callery certainly does not play metal, but she sure does know how to play heavy on our hearts. This whole EP is definitely an emotional trip, but the song “The Huntsman” just stabs me right in the heart every damn time (skip to track 4). This is a beautiful release and I hope to hear more new music from Allysen very soon. If listening to this makes me a lifelover, then I can live with it!


 

GAS AXE – GAS AXE

All right, enough pleasant-sounding shit. It’s time for the crushing part. If GAS AXE doesn’t get your blood flowing with hate and rage, then I don’t know what will. GAS AXE is from Wales, UK and they plan to crumble your homes/work buildings to the ground with their experimental style of doom and sludge metal. I sort of think of GAS AXE to be the Meshuggah of doom/sludge. What do you think?


 

NOD NOD – nod nod

NOD NOD  play a perfect blend of mellow and punishing. You can be spacing out one minute and getting hit in the head with a hammer the next. There are influences from all over the map and you can pick them out throughout this whole album. You’ve got sludge, doom, rock, noise, country, folk, garage, and so on.


 

Caino – Exegesis

Caino play their crust/d-beat with emotion.  The one band I could compare these lads to is Tragedy but Caino manage to keep their sound distinct. This release is 2 years old now, let’s hope we hear more from these punk rockers soon.


 

Heathen Bastard – S/T

Hell, I figure we’ll end this with something slow, heavy and filthy. Heathen Bastard is a sludge/doom band from Florence, South Carolina and they don’t like to play fast, clean, or soft. I’ll just let Heathen Bastard do their thing. Warning: Your speakers may be destroyed. Play it loud!

  • Some of this is very Jex Thoth-y. I can dig it.

  • 😀

  • Metaphysical Anus

    There’s some nice shit here. Thank you based Tyree.

    • Mother Shabubu III

      I’d name a band this and play nothing but the brown note.

      • Metaphysical Anus

        It would be a shitty band.

        • Mother Shabubu III

          The Laxatives. We’d have a visuals screen that would show nothing but scat porn too.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Your fan base would be all coprophiles.

          • Mother Shabubu III

            We’d be huge in Germany.

          • Howard Dean

            “Uh… Meeeeeeeehhhhhmmmm… If you were in a German “scheisse” video, you… you’d tell me, right?”

          • Metaphysical Anus

            “Sure, hon.”

  • KJM

    Saw Ides Of Gemini open for Ghost last year, not bad.

  • Digging Caino! You know just how to get me interested in a band: mention Tragedy.

    • Tyree

      I knew it would work.

  • Metaphysical Anus

    Oh man, I’m really liking dat Caino.

  • Howard Dean

    So, I must give an update, because it is a Getting Laid at Bandcamp with Tyree success story: Last week, I bought the Sacrocurse CD from Hells Headbangers after you recommended them in your G.L. @ Bandcamp post. The CD arrived in the mail yesterday. My fuck is that a ripper. I love the sound. Full, heavy, and thick death/war metal with just the right amount of production (the guitars still have a buzzy edge to them, but the whole thing doesn’t sound like it’s being played under a blanket of snow). Reminds me of Blasphemophagher. Super intense. Very South American. Total Death. Loving it. Thanks, Tyree!

    • Howard Dean

      Seriously, strap on a bullet belt and listen to this. So good. Try not to scream in a random person’s face afterwards, though:

      • Tyree

        FUCKING GO!

        Goddamn that goes hard!

  • Mother Shabubu III

    While Gas Axe rules, Love Sex Machine is the Meshuggah of sludge/doom.

  • Gorgasm

    I saw Ides of Gemini open for Ghost last year. They were great live. Sera Timms is hypnotizing, J. Bennett is decisive with his chords and Kelly has a relaxing beat. Such a great show. Highly recommended for those looking for a heavy show without all the aggression.

    EDIT: more great banner work, Tyree.

    • crazytaco_12

      Dude, they were the dud of the night at the show I was at. Mind you, I bought a cassette, but they went on right after Lord Dying (OR sludge metal badasses) and right before Ghost. They were just too chill and the drummer hated playing cymbals. Don’t think they’re horrible and hopefully their new stuff is better, but yeah, I dunno…

      • Gorgasm

        If Lord Dying played ahead of Ides when I saw then, I’d feel the same. Still a big fan.

        • crazytaco_12

          Yeah dude, and I’m in no way trying to shit on your liking of Ides or Ides themselves, just making a petty observation.

  • Metaphysical Anus
    • Howard Dean

      Dude, Fleshpress is awesome. That sick bastard Mikko Aspa playing the stoner doom. Byah!

      • Metaphysical Anus

        You are a beautiful man.

        • Howard Dean

          Thank you. You are a beautiful anus.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            You think that I’m beautiful? No one has ever told me I’m beautiful.

        • Howard Dean

          Thank you. You are a beautiful anus.

    • Tyree

      I’ll check these out later dude.

      • Metaphysical Anus

        Ok based god Tyree.

        • Tyree

          I need to consume beer in order to listen 😉

    • W.

      Slug Lord, eh?

      • Metaphysical Anus

        You can read, eh?

  • NDNOvHell

    Chad: “Tyree, you stabbed my dad! And you had sex with Katie.”
    Tyree: “Hey man, you got that all wrong. I ain’t have sex with Katie. LYSOL had sex with Katie, I just filmed it.”
    Katie: “No, Tyree. You had sex with me too!”
    Tyree: “Correction. I had sex with Katie.”

    • Tyree

      Hahahahaha! I wondered how long it would take for someone to pick that up.

    • Howard Dean

      Tyree: “Man what’chu waitin’ for, get your fatass outta here before I cut some bacon off your back.”

      • NDNOvHell

        Tyree: “For the whole period you in my room, I better not catch you standing up peein’. You sit down when you pee.”

  • Mon*Star

    Been digging that female-fronted Occult Rock lately, thanks for the good finds. Mansion is right up my alley.

    • Howard Dean

      Definitely an area I need to explore more thoroughly, as I enjoy the sound. I’m most familiar with The Devil’s Blood, due in part to their association with/standing in the extreme metal community. Too bad Selim killed himself. He was a great guitarist.

      • Mon*Star

        Agreed, they kind of started it for me too. Saw them live on that Behemoth tour, I thought they were amazing but I think the crowd wanted someone heavier.

        Other bands of the type I’ve been listening to the most are Blood Ceremony, Mount Salem, Witch Mountain, Royal Thunder and Christian Mistress.

        • Howard Dean

          I’ve heard good things about Mount Salem. Have you listened to Castle? I bought their album “Blacklands” totally on a whim a few years ago (having not heard them and liking the album cover, haha), and enjoyed it. They do a tradeoff thing where the woman sings on some tracks, while the gruffer/raspy voiced guy sings on the others.

          • Mon*Star

            Shit, I forgot Castle and I’ve probably been listening to them the most lately. Yeah, totally dig ’em. Saw them live a couple months ago, they were really pissed off about the monitors in the shitty venue and played a pretty furious set, which made it all the better.

          • Have you heard their new release Under Siege? Way more stripped-down than Blacklands was, but it rules.

          • Howard Dean

            I haven’t heard it, but I should. The description of a more stripped down version of Blacklands sounds good.. I’m going on a bit of a CD splurge at the moment, with orders out all over the place. Maybe I’ll throw that in at some point. Thanks for the rec!

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            ……..

        • KJM

          I’m seeing Witch Mountain next month on their last tour before Uta Plotkin leaves the band. : (

          • Mon*Star

            I wish I could, she’s amazing. Not heading to my town unfortunately.

          • KJM

            Too bad they’re not headlining.

        • KJM

          Also, you should check out the last 2 discs from The Wounded Kings. Unfortunately Sharie Neyland left the band earlier this year. >_<

        • JWG

          Try Blues Pills on. They’re not at all ‘Occult Rock’, but if you dig Christian Mistress and Mount Salem I think you’d like them too.

          IMO the singer does a remarkable vocal impression of Janis Joplin while making the style ‘her own’, and the band are utterly convincing disciples of the British 60’s Blues-Rock School of Riffs.

          I have heard they’re better live than on record, but haven’t got proof yet.

    • Tyree

      I’ve just been in a mood for it lately. Figured I share.

    • crazytaco_12

      Dude, check out Windhand and Reino Ermitano before you touch on the occult rock stuff.

      • Mon*Star

        I’ve listened to Windhand but haven’t really gotten into them, I’ll give ’em another go and check out Ermitano.

  • Tyree

    Next week is going to be more brutal, I promise.

    • Metaphysical Anus

      Pinky swear?

      • Tyree

        No need for that. It will be fucking mean!

        • Metaphysical Anus

          Well, you have never lied to me before. I think. I will have to believe you.

  • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

          • Howard Dean

            Conway Twitty’s hair was incredible.

          • Flushgod Apocalypse

            It’s always given me that Ron Swanson vibe.

    • KJM

      Gimme a minute, gonna grab a rack of Colt 45! WHOOOO!!

      • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

        Damn bro what packy you snag those baddies from bro? All we got here is OE bro!

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          You’re lucky to have OE bro! We get King Cobra and that doesn’t have enough alcohol for me bro! I would love some OE and some Colt 45 to go with my Natty Ices bro!

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        Hold up there bro, do you have any Natty Ice to go with that? If so count me and my copy of the new Hellyeah album in! Fuck yeah!

  • Gobshite

    GAS AXE are from my neck of the woods? This makes me happy in my gizzards!

  • Simon Phoenix

    Mansion are really really good though.

  • Wizard Aura

    Ugh, Ides of Gemini blow. Why has no one heard of Black Math Horseman? Its literally the exact same shit, but instead of a drummer that can’t play and riffs that go nowhere, they had a drummer who fucking shreds and their riffs built up into actual intense shit.

    http://youtu.be/TfsN__HvfYw

    • Virgil the Ghost Poet

      I don’t like Ides either. I remember I bought that shit because some asshole compared them to A Storm of Light in some review. He lied.

    • crazytaco_12

      Something I really have against Ides is that the guitarist works for Decibel and I feel like they get a ton of promotion due to that. To be fair though, I’d probably take advantage of that resource too.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    I have a project on Bandcamp. It’s called Mr. In Your House 4 and we are currently working on an EP. Our album is on hold for the moment though.

  • Xan

    Fucking hell, I’m going to be poor if I keep reading these articles.

  • crazytaco_12

    Too…..many…..goo-good..ART-icles..*coughs, hacks*……today.
