News Roundp: Melvins, Mithras, Wodensthrone, Criminal, Graves at the Sea, Sylvain and more

We’re bringing you more news so you can shut your mouth.


melvins-2016-basses-loaded-album-novoselicFew bands from the rock world can say they’ve inspired multiple mainstream and underground acts; Melvins is one of them. The monsters of Seattle have been rolling up the world under their feet since 1983, and they are still hungry for more heads. King Buzzo and Dale Clover always had a revolving door of bassists, so this time they set up the battlefield and will release two albums (yes! TWO!). Three Men and a Baby will be published this April 1st. This is the unreleased record they prepared in 1999 that was never finished. The bassist on this piece is godheadSilo’s Mike Kunka. The other record is the ingeniously titled Basses Loaded, scheduled for September, and will include participation from six musicians, starting from older collaborators of the band, like Jared Warren and Trevor Dunn, as well as Steven McDonald (Redd Kross) and Krist Novoselic (Nirvana). Open your ears to “Hideous Woman” and surrender to the Buzz (this one is with Steven McDonald).

 


6600_photoMithras’s last invocation to the mystical realms was with 2011’s Time Never Lasts EP. Since Sarpanitum has had great success, does it means that Mithras is dead? Hell no! On Strange Loops will be the next album from these brutal death metallers from the United Kingdom, and they recently teamed up with Willowtip Records to give you a taste of their otherworldy riffage with “The Statue on the Island”. Check it out; it cosmically rules. Meanwhile, look for the constellations and jam this tune while you wait for the awaited release date.


Sad news: Wodensthrone is no more. The band announced an amicable split-up through their official Fan Page on Facebook. Meanwhile, I will be burning magic incense to honor these fallen Pagan comrades. Here is the message:

We regret to announce that after ten years of activity, Wodensthrone is no more, following the amicable departure of… Posted by Wodensthrone (Official) on miércoles, 9 de marzo de 2016

Their last record, Curse, was released on 2012, through Candlelight Records. I recommend checking it for more arboreal black metal.


Metal Blade Records is one of the biggest labels in the extreme genre right now, built largely upon great roster of bands in the underground 80s days. In case you are a clueless kid, the label helped to promote the then-unknown bands with a series of compilations titled Metal Massacre. In this series, Brian Slagel, founder of the label, recommended great bands that would later become commanders or part of the cavalry of the metal genre, like Metallica, Cirith Ungol, Overkill, Armored Saint, Slayer, Trouble, Voivod, Hellhammer, and many many more (Seriously, check out the track-listing!).

Well, since the retro aesthetic is back and the internet is filled with metal, the label is reviving the old tradition of the Metal Blade compilation in 2016 after 10 years of absence.

Here is the cover art and the  track-list for this edition:

MetalMassacre-14

01. The Traveller (Metalian)
02. Until Then…Until the End (Noctum)
03. Bell of Tarantia (Gatekeeper)
04. The Demented Force (Assassin’s Blade)
05. Denim Attack (Cobra)
06. The Siege of Jerusalem (Stone Dagger)
07. Will of the Ancient Call (Crypt Sermon)
08. The Ripper in Black (Savage Master)
09. No Tomorrow (Outcast)
10. Brothers (Corsair)
11. Cold Cold Ground (Walpyrgus) **
12. Final Spell (Visigoth) **
13. Into Depths (Ravencult) **

** Bonus tracks only for the digital version.


Chilean thrashers, Criminal are streaming in full their new album Fear Itself on Soundcloud. The blend of metal with hardcore shouting sounds caustic, with plenty of riffs and a pissed-off attitude (also, it features a Costin Chiouraneu illustration on the cover). I recommend it!

You can pre-order now this release on Bandcamp and the physical version through the Metal Blade Records store.


More DOOM!

Graves at Sea is a band that has been had at work since their first demo in 2003. And all their discography is comprised of Splits and EPs. But this year, we will have their debut full-length, via Relapse Records. If you are interested in what the band prepared with The Curse That Is, I suggest you check out the premiere of a new track titled “Tempest” for 7 minutes of doom (via Cvlt Nation).

If you dig this, you just have to pre-order and wait for the release this April 20th. Also, check out this cool little poster with the dates of their shows. It’s so cute!

0003796829_10The evocative mindscape of Norwegian multi-instrumentalist Sylvaine will be shown this May with the release of Wistful. To tease the followers of the melancholic paths and the lush imaginative worlds of the “shoegazy” side of the post-rock genre, the song “Saudade” is being premiered on Pop Matters.

If you are a fan of the French school of blackgaze and the overall post aesthetic, you can give it a listen. And yes, Neige, from Alcest, is drumming on this record.


To our fellow concert-goers, the Metal Alliance Tour is back.

The lineup of this year’s edition is composed of: Dying Fetus, The Acacia Strain, Jungle Rot, Black Crown Initiate and System House 33. Reaping Asmodeia and Nylithia will play select dates too!

  • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

    MELVINS!!!!

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      Also, Criminal and Graves at Sea are jamming.

      • Boss! That Criminal is pretty fun. I will def check out more songs of it. Soundcloud doesn’t work good to me.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          Link! Excellent round up, my friend. I may have to purchase Criminal.

          • Pass me up a message if you listen the whole thing to check your opinion, Boss.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Will do!

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            I just finished the Criminal album. It slays, I’m digging it. Lots of hardcore vibes, as you mentioned, with some groove. Really tight sounding as well.
            Try and give it a listen on bandcamp if you get the chance.

          • Great, man. I dig the groovy. It reminds me of The Haunted and Dew-Scented.

            I will wait for a Youtube stream. My bandcamp streaming is goddamn awful with this shitty connection.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Ah, alrighty.

      • That riff at 40 seconds in on Graves At Sea crushes all.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          CRUSHES!!!

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    I had a Gibson Tony Iommi SG and I thought the whole guitar sucked. Sad, I was really looking forward to it too. Typically bad Gibson quality control, and the pickups were really muddy. Oh well…..

    • I played one of those once. Was not impressed. I’ve heard some real horror stories about Gibson. Shame, all I wanted was one when I was a kid.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Luckily I used to work at a guitar store from 1999-2007, so I was able to pick and choose. The Iommi was a impulse buy, the rest of my guitars that I now own were hand picked by me. Perks of the job.

        • That’s fucking rad. One of the biggest drum stores in the U.S. is located 2 hours away from me. I always wanted to work there. Never worked out, such as life. Dale’s Drum Shop in Harrisburg.

          http://www.dalesdrumshop.com/

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Bummer dude……It was the best job ever. Paid shit of course. The last job before I left, was literally playing guitars all day. I had to weigh and play test them. They were all high-end Gibson and Fender Custom Shops. Those were the days….

          • I hear that! The best job I ever had was the one that paid the least. Seems to be the way it goes. Can’t complain I guess, I can buy records now with this job. Working a job that you are passionate about is rare. I’d love to be designing album covers for a living. Some day.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Total truth, bro.

          • more beer

            The world sucks that way. Always remember. Work to live not live to work.

          • nbm02ss

            Jelly. Last year I played a 58 LP reissue; total midlife crisis purchase for me in a few years.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Rad!

      • nbm02ss

        Yeah, I’ve heard lots of shit about Gibson QC, but stubborn ole me had to have a Les Paul; fortunately my LP has been trouble free so far, but then again I did pay a pretty penny for it.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Yeah, it was always up and down. The most consistent guitars I ever saw were Paul Reed Smiths. They were like butter, straight from the factory out of the box. Sadly, I never bought one as I was never impressed with their pickups.

          • PRS guitars are instruments to people that like to get better in music.

            PRS guitars are for lifelovers.

            Like Mikael Akerfeldt or Santana or the guy from Cradle of Filth that it isn’t there and formed a more awful band.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Hahaha. I fucking hate Santana.

          • I will always blame him for this:

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6omUxqhG78

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Lame. He made his whole career off of ripping off Peter Green’s sound.

          • I pushed one kid in my teenager days when he was arguing to me that Santana was the best guitar player ever.

            #LinkFacts

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Good man.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I like Peter Green. He has a new album coming out.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Really?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            That’s what I heard.

          • lol Scion

          • nbm02ss

            Something about PRS aesthetically never really clicked for me, but maybe it’s my subconscious saying, “fuck Santana”.

          • “fuck Santana”.

            ANOTHER SATISFIED COSTUMER!!!!

            ¡Jajajajajajaja!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            He’s not bad but hes not on my favorite guitarist list.

          • COAL ROLL

            PRS price tags are what is the least impressive to me about them

          • I am a big fan of Schecter guitars. Not expensive and they play well.

      • Dave Vincent’s Perm

        All I ever wanted was a Jackson.

        • That’s all my guitarist uses. That and B.C. Rich.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Tell your guitar player that some random fuck from The Toilet says he has good taste in guitars.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            *Two random fucks

          • COAL ROLL

            three

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Oh yeah, I saw a metal as fuck Jackson V in the catalog, it literally had metal in the paint.

          • I have a Jackson Kelly guitar, floating tremelo, I would not recommend one. My 2cents. The flying Vs look dope though!

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Every Jackson I’ve used has practically played itself.

          • What keeps you from pulling the trigger on one?

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Well I just bought one, so y’know, not much.

          • Jackson Guitars are great. There were some local bands that could bought some Deans and Schecters and the Jacksons always developed the best sound and were the most enduring.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm
          • Ha I know they look cool. But it is SO UNCOMFORTABLE

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Well, you could send me it. I know someone who can, uh… Dispose of it. Safely. And stuff.

          • I would hate to know how much it would cost to ship it over the pond, lol.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            It would probably cost more than the guitar itself.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            What model is it?

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I always wanted a nice guitar but I have a cheap one. What is your opinion on Schecter guitars?

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            They come with great hardware for the price. I’ve always wanted a schecter blackjack, but a lot of the other finishes I’m not a fan of. Alas, I have yet to play one, but my friend josh loves his.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I saw that on the Dope croudfunding page you can buy a Schecter Scorpion played by Acey Slade for 650 dollars. Id buy it

          • CyberneticOrganism

            I’ve got a middle-of-the-road Schecter 7 and it’s been solid. Stays in tune, plays easy, sounds great. No complaints, although I wouldn’t mind a slightly longer scale length.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Longer scale length >>>>>

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I could use a new guitar. Now that I have a good job I might save up for one. Is a Jackson Rhoads good?

          • CyberneticOrganism

            They look cool as fuck, but I’ve never played one.

          • Different job you say? No more Old Navy bs?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I work.there and Christmas Tree Shops. I’ve already got 12 hours and my orientation was Monday. I worked Wednesday and i work today and tomorrow.

          • Sweet man! Hours and $$$>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I need the money. I might quit Old Navy if this job keeps giving me hours because at this point I don’t want to.work somewhere that gives me so few hours.

          • From the little I know:

            Don’t buy signature series if you take the guitar as a hobby. They mostly sounds bad, are expensive as hell and if it’s like the Dean guitars made in China, for example, they will fall apart very quickly.

            I don’t know about Jackson Rhoads, but, that’s what I recollected and opinionated with some chats of musicians on my area.

          • COAL ROLL

            don’t buy one unless you plan on never being able to sit and play

        • All always wanted an ESP or LTD. But I don’t know too much opinions about them.

          Scrimm have some LTD guitars and he says it works fine.

          • The GL Sunburst Tiget I had was beyond nice. It was a limited run LTD product. I was so nice I didn’t play it… which resulted in the subsequent selling of it 🙁

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Right in the feels

          • I am pretty sure every time I pick up the guitar, my balls would tingle… just a bit.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            ESP <<<<<<<<<
            I mean yeah they're nice guitars but they just seem really boring to me. Of course, that would change if they made a sammy duet signature.

          • I like the Flying V’s series. Very edgy.

            It’s mostly because this guitar:

            http://www.espguitars.co.jp/artist/michael_amott/ninja.jpg

          • The visiual is sweet. But it is nearly impossible to sit down and be comfortable with one. Ya know?

          • Who cares?

            I would be just spin-kicking around.

            I also feel more comfortable playing standing up.

          • Oh gotcha. I mostly sit down. I tend to play for a hour or more a day when we are watching TV. So I HAVE to be comfortable. lol

      • Waynecro

        I have two Gibsons (an old tricked-out Explorer and a Robot SG). I love them both and have no complaints. My brother has an Epiphone Les Paul, and it’s great too–lots of beast for your buck.

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      That sucks to hear, I was excited to read about the new one.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        This was years ago too.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          True, I’m hoping i can atleast try one out.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Maybe these Epiphones are better?

          • COAL ROLL

            I own two Epiphone LP’s that are superior to their Gibson counterparts in every way

          • What models, if you don’t mind me axing

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            I’ve heard that before.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            I just watched the video. I shouldn’t have done so. Now i really want one.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            So it goes, bro….

    • One would expect the best of the best with the Tony Iommi signature. But, I think you’re right. I have saw bad opinions about Gibson too.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I think the Epiphone of Tony Iommi looks nice. They have it for 800 dollars on Sweetwater. I’d buy it because my Epiphone is very good.

        • Epiphone Guitars are very cool to start to play. I have not played too much with electric guitars, but my favorite was an Epiphone cheap Les Paul shaped guitar. Very comfortable.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I have a cheap Epiphone. It’s a nice guitar but it’s nearing the end of its days.

          • Send it to the Maracaibo graveyard. I will take care of it.

    • COAL ROLL

      New Gibson guitars are not very high quality

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Haven’t really tried any out in a while. The last guitar I bought was 2006/7, can’t remember for sure.

        • COAL ROLL

          new to me is younger than 1995

      • CyberneticOrganism

        I have an old Gibson bass and it rules. 1983 Victory.

    • I would like to corroborate your sentiments on shoddy Gibson products.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Yeah, like I said earlier, it has its ups and downs.

        • I guess quality control could be a concern when you mass produce any product. Let alone products that are priced so highly.

          I thought they produced many of the signature guitars in TN somewhere? In a single shop? I might be imagining things…

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yeah, they’re based out of Nashville, which is where the custom shop is too.

  • Hahahaha! KSOFM was mentioned in a TOH post. Fuck everything!!!

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    A new Metal Massacre compilation is coming out? Yay! I’ve listened to some older ones so I hope this one has good bands.

  • Stanley

    News you can ewes.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Also my local venue is for sale. This could be very good or very bad for the concert scene in Poughkeepsie.

    • R.I.P. in pedacitos Poughkeepsie concert scene.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        If there’s no venues then the concert scene won’t exist anymore. Someone needs to step up and save it.

        • more beer

          You live in New York. There is always some place to see a show. If one venue closes there is always another.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            In my area that’s the only venue because the Civic Center doesn’t really book concerts.

          • more beer

            You are in close enough proximity to NYC that shouldn’t matter.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I dont drive. I have been there before because my sister and me went to a pop punk show and she drives. Ive never been there by
            myself.

          • more beer

            Metro North and the subway. Will take you any place you want to go. Where you live is one of the few places in the world. That you absolutely don’t need to drive to get any place. When I lived there and didn’t have a car. It never stopped me from going anywhere.

          • Dubs

            I wonder if this time he’ll hear you.

          • more beer

            Probably not! I don’t drive is just a weak argument living there.

          • “Where you live is one of the few places in the world. That you absolutely don’t need to drive to get any place”

            Oh, man. That must be a marvel. I want to live in Poughkeepsie.

          • just think: if you did, bands would be coming to your area constantly

          • more beer

            If you travel a little further south. You can go to a show pretty much any night of the week.

          • No bands want to come to Venezuela. Nobody wants to come to Venezuela. Venezuelans doesn’t want to come to Venezuela.

          • more beer

            I wasn’t just talking about Poughkeepsie. But that whole area in New York in general. There are much better places to live around there than Poughkeepsie.

    • more beer

      It has been for sale for 5 years now. With no good offers. It isn’t going anywhere.

    • The Chance?

      • more beer

        That is pretty much the only one there.

        • I figured, went there a few times back in the day. Good venue with a decent size to it.

          • more beer

            I’ve seen some good shows there as well.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        Yes. I found out via Facebook this morning.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    Neige is my spirit animal, digging that Sylvaine song. Thanks for the links, Link.

      That bill is depressing.

      • Super Nintendo Chalmers

        Everything you have to say is depressing.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Not true, actually. You’re just nitpicking.

          • COAL ROLL

            stop being so positive

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            You know, I just can’t win. I’m too negative or I’m not negative enough. Humans……

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            In my opinion you’re a perfect blend of positive and negative.

          • Awwww.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            DEEEEEERRRRRRRRP.

          • COAL ROLL

            he doesn’t

          • more beer

            Rhetorical question. I know he doesn’t.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            No, not really. I sleep like a cunting baby.

          • Waking up every hour and a half to scream?

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yeah, at absolutely nothing.

            Are you sure you aren’t just hungry? Sometimes I wake up crying because I’m hungry. Or teething.

            What can I say, shitting is an emotional experience.

          • Hahahaha! Sometimes it’s just too glorious not too.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Damn, how long have you had that parasite inside you? You gots problems, brah.

          Killing myself now just looking at your Disqus name.

    • I’m gonna go and punch a child in the pit.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      I saw Acacia Strain open for Hatebreed once. Them and Dying Fetus are the only bands I’d see on that lineup. Also, Black Crown Initiate because they were good when I saw them

      • Saw Dying Fetus once. It was slammy. Good drummer though.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I forgot to go last time they were here.

          • Saw em at MDF years back. They shot a music video during their set. I’m pretty sure I’m in the video actually. Derp.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Hahaha. DEEEEERRRRRRRRRRP.

          • Yeah, I’ll try and find it here. It was one of the first years I started attending MDF.

          • 20 seconds in. Front row, tallest shit-head with the hat. I think I was front row to see Macabre who was up next.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            YES!

          • Saw Macabre once, they put on one heck of a show.

          • more beer

            They are excellent live and really nice guys.

          • Sight Vnseen

            Fuck. I don’t know who to respond to, I’m just really jealous of anyone who’s seen Macabre. I’ve had a few chances but it never worked out.

          • more beer

            They are still around. I am sure you will get your chance to see them.

          • sweetooth0

            yeah they ruled when I saw em play on tour with Exhumed and Cephalic Carnage years back.

            so handsome! no wonder KSOFM is so enamored

          • Vault Dweller

            Fuckin’ A!

            There used to be a ‘tour video’ from Sounds of the Underground in ’06 that featured me in a mosh pit at the Orlando show… think it was during Black Dahlia Murder or Cannibal Corpse.

            Video isn’t on youtube anymore bc 10 years ago.

          • Rob M

            Hahaha…I remember that.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Me too.

        • Rob M

          Not a band I care about, but theyre solid for their style

          • Yup, never appealed to me. Not bad though.

          • Waynecro

            I’m a pretty shameless Dying Fetus fan. Destroy the Opposition is probably one of my favorite albums of all time.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Dying Fetus are the only good band on that bill. Acacia Strain is godawful.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I enjoyed them when I saw them. Thesinger was very nice when I met him

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I haven’t seen them live yet, but I just really don’t like their sound.

    • Don’t forget a flat brim baseball cap to complete the ensemble.

      • Jeeesh! How could I forget.

    They just had to put Neck Binding on the Iommi signature… i feel an impulse buy coming.

    • RIP Boss The Ross wallet!

      • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

        Haha!
        I haven’t looked at the price tag yet…

    I’m so hyped for the new Melvins albums!

    • I’m so glad I was able to catch them live.

        Seeing them, along with Napalm Death, in April. Stoked.

        They were the supports atthe first big gig I ever saw around 2001.
        Was great.

  • fuck, it sure would be cool to see Nylithia live (<3 BtR)! also that Mithras is a str8t rocket (<3 Simon Phoenix)! small news item: new Gadget album is officially released. jamming all day. m/

  • Converge mentioned that they will begin writing a new album after the tour they are on is over. Maybe it’ll come out this year.

    • PLEASE GOD YES

      • Tour ends in August, I’d say 2017 is a safer bet.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    Plz downvote this comment, but also provide me with a name of a band that is similar to Elder’s “Lore” album. Need some immediate jamz.

  • Rob M

    Hahaha..that Metal Blade comp has a track by Savage Master. Honestly wonder how many of those bands will go anywhere. MetalBlade is better than a lot of the bigger labels, but theyre not super tapped in either

    Shitty news about Wodensthrone

  • CT-12

    Bryan Sours from Graves at Sea has to be one of the most awe-inspiring drummers out there right now. Saw these guys last year, dude goes so fucking hard on his drums and is groovy as hell. Dude broke like 3 drumsticks in a maybe 45 minute set. Insane, stoked for the new album. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmBDdKX7_pE
