2014 was a terrific year for metal and if you disagree you can see yourself out of the hall, into the void, or some other phrase we used to use all the time. There’s no way one of the many contributors here missed the opportunity to showcase a terrific band… unless that band leaned more towards hard rock than heavy metal.

Sometimes one has to stop fucking one’s brain over with Antichamber and play some Serious Sam.  Sometimes one has to ease the gas on chef-grade sushi and get some Long John Silver’s (please don’t think this is a bad thing). It’s taxing listening to so many challenging (yet amazing) bands like Artificial Brain or Sinmara. Sometimes we get an itch that needs scratching, and a good hard rock band can often satisfy that need. Today I’m showcasing the band Servers, whose debut album Leave With Us might have passed under your radar in 2014.

In February of last year, the South Yorkshire rockers released their debut full length to the masses. I wouldn’t have known about this band if it weren’t for an excellent review published by the nice folks at Heavy Blog Is Heavy (to which it was awarded 4.5… thingies). I immediately checked them out and was hooked from the get-go. What follows is the first single “Universes and Supernovas (The Ride)” – and accompanying video – from the album:

How can anybody deny those crunchy, catchy riffs (worth nothing – the album version is 6:14 and ends with an orchestra mirroring the main guitar riff)? It had me thinking; every time I muse that the three-piece hard rock act is completely out of gas, I end up being incorrect. All it took was about 20 listens of this first single to coerce me to purchase the album ASAP. And it turns out the album as a whole is 100% unflushable.

Servers boasts Lee Storrar on vocals/guitars, Ant Nettleship on drums, and Lee Wilde on bass. Lee’s vocals are gruff in a Motorhead kind of way with a TREMENDOUS amount of energy and passion driving them forward. Dude can scream. Ant and Lee’s performances provide the perfect backing rhythm section: simply driving forward at full-throttle with the precision and accuracy of a well-oiled punk rock machine. The riffs are what I commonly refer to as “driving” and “bombastic”; the inertia present in the hard-rocking tracks is just unstoppable! Bands that seem to come to mind are Alkaline Trio and Lazer/Wulf with their ferocious assault of riffs that don’t let go of your earholes for the length of the track. Along with the first single are heavy-hitters “Save Me From Myself” and “Once I Started” that exhibit the same punk-rocking energy.

So when Servers aren’t rocking your gosh-darned socks off, they take a more introspective approach and slow it down a little bit. We might even call them doomy (I think in another life I would have called them ballads). Songs like “Claustrophobia”, the second single from the record, do a tremendous job of showcasing this:

“Claustrophobia” is one of four tracks that highlight their slower, more melodic style of rocking. The fifth song “Dangerous Devotion” features one of the catchiest harmonized vocal hooks in recent history, an incredibly soulful guitar solo, and a string orchestra overlapping the latter half of the song for added intensity.

Leave With Us is half adrenaline-fueled hard rock songs with the intensity that could power a small town, and half doom-influenced “ballads” with absolutely stunning beauty. The production of the album is PERFECT. Yes you read that correctly, every instrument and vocal line are crystal clear, with no element overpowering the other. The album length is ideal; 10 tracks each averaging about 4 minutes long. “This is their debut album?” you might be asking yourself. I thought the same thing. Servers has all the ingredients to be the next big hard rock/heavy metal band that, unfortunately, YOU missed in 2014.

Join their mailing list/fanclub here, download the album from Amazon (couldn’t find them on Bandcamp… I know right), and like them on Facebook. Servers is a force with which to be reckoned!

    It’s never a good idea to ease off the sushi (unless you’re like Jeremy Piven and eat so much that you get mercury poisoning).

    • Edward #negrodMMXV

      I’m eating sushi on Saturday, mark my words.

      • BLVKKBEVRD

        I’m seeing young and in the way and us Christmas on Saturday. Which means I’ll be drinking my dinner and buying hoodies and vinyls

      • Howard Dean

        Fuck yes! The only drawback (aside from the mercury poisoning if you over consume) is the cost: if you have a decent appetite, sushi gets expensive real quick. I’ve gorged on several occasions, and had to do a double take when the bill arrived. The a la carte nigiri and hand rolls can add up fast!

        • Edward #negrodMMXV

          Did Jeremy Piven really get mercury poisoning? That’s pretty pimp, lol

          • Howard Dean

            He did, from what I gather. Some types of complications related to exposure to mercury or its compounds. And he said he thought it was because he ate sushi almost daily.

      • I had sushi two days in a row (Thurs, Friday). It was excellent.

        • Howard Dean

          Nice! Back-to-back sushi days are the best. I’ve actually eaten sushi twice in one day (lunch and dinner) before, too. Not sushi, but when I went on vacation, I ate blackened grouper, raw oysters, and sea bass for like a week straight. One of the best weeks ever.

          • If I could be reborn in anyone’s life, I would be born in a peaceful fishing village and spend my life on the ocean

          • Howard Dean

            If I had to choose my way to die, it would involve eating seafood until I lost consciousness and subsequently died from a ruptured stomach/bowel.

          • Tyree

            Brutal dude. Like that poor blob from Seven.

          • Howard Dean

            Yes, only I would be the one forcing myself to eat. Suicide by seafood. Metal!

          • Tyree

            I’d hate to be the mortician to clean up you body.

          • HAS THIS FUCKIN’ GUY JUST BEEN EATING FISH ALL GODDAMN DAY

          • Tyree

            Hahaha, fucking gross man.

          • Howard Dean

            Nothing but blood, vomit, and partially digested whitefish. Byah!

          • Brutal sushi
            (a friendly dude who visits HBIH)

          • Edward #negrodMMXV

            I seen that dude. Great username.

          • Tyree

            Sea Bass?

          • Howard Dean

            Kick his ass!

          • Tyree
          • Howard Dean

            I love that movie!

          • Tyree
          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Seen the new one?

          • Tyree

            No. Have you?

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Yeah I went to see it. Not bad actually, but still has the sequel-syndrome and a few partially recycled jokes. I probably wouldn’t watch it again. But it’s worth seeing once.

        • I shall never know the joys of sushi as I’m very allergic to pretty much anything that comes out of the ocean.

    • Renan Ribeiro

      This got me craving

      • Howard Dean

        There needs to be a patch for sushi.

        • Renan Ribeiro

          There needs to be a worldwide Toilet Ov Hell sushi gathering. Make it annual.

          • Edward #negrodMMXV

            Tokyo, Japan would be ideal for sushi but Minneapolis, Minnesota would be ideal for my own convenience.

          • Renan Ribeiro

            I could do Minneapolis, as long as I get in Mayo Clinic’s residency program next year (yeah, right).

          • Howard Dean

            Mayo Clinic is like the Yale Law School of residencies, yes? Ultra selectivity and exclusivity?

          • Renan Ribeiro

            So they say, it’s also considered one of the top hospitals in the world for learning and research. That’s a little out of my league, specially considering that I want to become a Radiologist, which is a pretty competitive field. I’d be happy just doing well on the USMLE’s and getting into a solid hospital.

          • Howard Dean

            Several of my in-laws are doctors, so I’ve learned a lot about the med school/residency/fellowship game that doctors have to play. It’s brutal shit, man. I don’t envy you. It probably doesn’t help that a lot of doctors are crazy, ultra competitive asshole narcissists with sociopathic tendencies (none of my in-laws are this way, but I’ve heard a lot about doctors who are).

          • Renan Ribeiro

            Medicine tends to attract all kinds of fucked up and/or weird people, myself included. I don’t think I’m an asshole, though, I’m sick in a lovable kind of way.
            I guess the power is what attracts the assholes. Everytime someone goes to the doctor, no matter how small their problem is, they are puttig themselves in a position of vulnerability – they need your help to solve a problem they can’t explain or deal with on their own.

          • Howard Dean

            Totally, it’s been described to me as the “God Complex”–the ability to help and heal those that can’t help themselves, and in some cases, to literally hold people’s lives in your hands. People who tend to be narcissists equate this skill with a superiority, an “extra-human” ability that puts them above others. The knowledge, skill, and hard work that goes into the training, too, tends to give those prone to narcissism this same sense of superiority–“I can do it, and so many others can’t. Ergo, I am superior.” Of course, I’m not saying that all doctors are this way, but I can see how in the more rigorous/challenging/selective specialties, one would encounter a higher percentage of doctors with this affect.

          • Renan Ribeiro

            That’s precisely why surgeons have such a bad rep.

          • Tyree
          • KJM

            I must insist that Ginza in Boston is ideal for such a gathering. It’s next to an ocean, after all.

          • KJM

            A different city every year.

    • Tyree
    • hehehe, right after that:

      “At least one person associated with the play seemed less forgiving about Mr. Piven’s departure. Speaking to Daily Variety, Mr. Mamet said, “My understanding is that he is leaving show business to pursue a career as a thermometer.””

  • BLVKKBEVRD

    I’ll listen when I get home, jimmy.

    I almost stopped reading when you advocated eating at long john silvers.

    • well i wrote “Captain D’s”, but i didn’t know that it wasn’t a widely known place

      • Yeah man, no one knows what that is.

        • sorry Papa Joe! McNulty’s drinking skills >>>>>>>>>>>> detective skills

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Yeah, I recall Freemon doing all the work!

            (He was in Trve Detectif)

          • more beer

            That`s a much more important skill!

  • Tyree

    Here is another band that wear hoods:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJcry0pPsus

  • Edward #negrodMMXV

    Great write up Jimmy!

    I’m liking the running theme through these stories today.

  • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

    I wouldn’t mind hearing this on the radio. Although this exactly the kind of music that was the reason for me to destroy my radio.
    *Second song ends*
    Okay, there is more going in the background than most radio.rock bands I have stopped to listen. Not bad, won’t buy. Maybe will revisit.

  • Mother Shabubu III

    Judging by their promo picture, I was totally expecting something black metally, or “vintage” death metal, but I was pleasantly surprised by what I heard. DAT CHORUS THO.

  • Hubert, The DoomGoat

    I appreciate the touch of melancholy that goes through these songs, and the songwriting is indeed excellent. I’m not a fan of hard rock though, and this doesn’t make one. Great write up Jimmy!

    • I’m liking the second song. I’m with you again about the melancholic vibes of that song. I think I will search for a couple of songs of theirs to settle the mood.

    • thanks Goat! you’re in my top 5 most critical people, so this means a lot.

      • Hubert, The DoomGoat

        I took it as a compliment 🙂

  • Not huge on the music but I totally wish my name was Ant Nettleship.

    • BLVKKBEVRD

      Your rl name is pretty awesome masterpants

  • Mother Shabubu III

    And Jimmy, if you want another overlooked, great metal/rock record, I highly recommend “Arche” by Dir en grey. It was released in December, and has no North American label, so it was easily missed, but it’s packed with great tuneskis. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZceqoeQIAgE

    • BLVKKBEVRD

      Backed. Great album

      • Mother Shabubu III

        I feel like I should have picked either “Cause of Fickleness”, “Chain Repulsion”, “Behind a Vacant Image, “Revelation of Mankind”, and “Tefutefu”, but it’s so hard to choose one song from Arche.

        • BLVKKBEVRD

          Most of their albums are great. Especially for one so prolific, others need to take note

          • Mother Shabubu III

            I think if I had to pick my top 5 in no order it would be Uroboros, Dum Spiro Spero, Arche, Kisou, and Withering To Death. I really like Macabre too.

  • It sounds kinda like current-era Coliseum with more polish. I can jam.

  • JJM,

    The first song reminds me of this song:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XXKa6YjJaU

    Great write up man!

    GL

  • sweetooth0

    No conversation about hooded bands can leave out Secret Chiefs 3

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S74hBpQZ6LU

    • Oh wow. This is great! Where are they from??

      GL

      • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

        Frisco

        Led by Trey Spruance

      • sweetooth0

        Not sure where from exactly (US somewhere), but the wiki article pretty much sums up who they are:

        Secret Chiefs 3 (or SC3) is an instrumental rock group led by guitarist/composer Trey Spruance (formerly of Mr. Bungle and Faith No More).
        Their studio recordings and tours have featured different line-ups, as
        the group performs a wide range of musical styles including surf rock, Persian, Arab, Indian, death metal, film music, electronic music, and various others.

        I recently got to see them in my city Saskatoon at a little bar that has been hosting all sorts of wild shows in the last year or so. This one was right around Halloween, so it was pretty sweet timing.

    • Tyree

      WOAH

      • my mind is blown!

        GL

    • KJM

      Sounds a lot like Mahavishnu Orchestra.

  • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

    This just in: Abigor’s Verwüstung/Invoke… is actually great

  • OK. This is my regular-type of atmosphere. I dig this. Thanks, mr. Detective.

    • Hey Link, did you ever find a guitar to buy? Or did you settle on a bass?

      GL

      • I still have my old acoustic (in fact, that first servers video reminded me of my old Carol because I don’t cut the strings on the head of the guitar). From now, I can’t buy a instrument because everything here is expensive and I need to spend a lot of money in the stuff of a future home.

        I’m itching to start to compose. But, I play very bad. Can you recommend me something to start composing, mr. GL?

        • Question before I answer your question: do you like playing the guitar? Personally, I think at your current level of playing that you should just focus on playing and have fun doing so. Composing music is great and all but it can be frustrating. I am not saying you will get frustrated by composing, I am just saying that you should focus on having fun first. However, composing and writing music does have it benefits. Playing things over and over really can help get your chops up. But, this can also be done by learning other songs too.

          I recommend just doing whatever allows you to have the most fun. No pressure man!

          GL

          • I got serious problems with more complex chords, like 9ths or the ones in the jazz because those hand positions are very uncomfortable.

            I like the guitar, no worries about that. But sometimes is very frustrating to me to not sound good, or don’t know how to do certain chords because I learnt alone with the internetz.

          • Try learning some songs man. Personally, I would not spend time learning chords with 9ths or whatever. Just play along to songs! Train your ears!

            To reiterate the have fun part: this song here I recorded in about three hours. No pressure – it just came out. All fun.

            https://soundcloud.com/g-l-44/jamming-with-gl

            GL

          • I can play along with easy 4/4 songs with 5th, minor and major chords. When the song is in a higher key, or it got some crazy chording I just go :poop: u.u

          • Are you practicing playing any leads? or just playing along with chords?

            GL

          • chords. In lead I’ve only learned two positions of pentatonic. But I forgot that, because I haven’t practiced it in years.

          • You should branch out. Chords are fun, but super boring man.

            GL

          • any good recommendation to play with scales? to practice it

          • Put on a record and just noodle over it. Theory is for nerds.
            /starts playing Smoke on the Water
            //fucks it up

          • Scrimm

            You’re right though. 25 plus years of playing and I am just now starting to learn anything about theory. It is not necessary to know all that to have a good time, or to write some pretty good music.

          • I second what Joe says. It will help if you tune your guitar to the song before it starts. Then just start picking. If you are on the wrong note – you will definitely know, lol. Then just stay in the 5 to 6 note region till you are comfortable. You will quickly pick up on the patterns along the fretboard. Also, have fun!

            GL

          • GL, do you like Cynic?

          • I have not listened to them, to be honest. I have them on now though! Sounds pretty good!

            GL

          • read and tab from Focus album and tell me your opinion lol. my fingers got twisted just watching those chords

          • Tyree

            Start off learning this. Easy BRO!

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOb6JSQd-Qw

          • I can nail that! at least don’t have those nasty jazz chords lol

          • KJM

            I have chord charts handy for when I want to learn a song or just want to practice. I already have the major open string chords memorized but I still have to look things up once in a while.

          • KJM

            At this time last year I couldn’t play guitar if my life depended on it, now I can play some of my favorite songs. That’s a great feeling.

          • Tyree
          • KJM

            Now you try!

          • Tyree

            You’re a dick.

          • KJM
          • Tyree

            Oh wow! Hahaha

          • Like 4 years, but I got two years without any practice; so, it’s like i’m at 0 % again

          • I remember that In my second year I could pull of (sloppy, but I could) play this in the tempo. Even the first melodies in the mike solo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4q01JVXEBg

          • I remember that my acoustic was tuned to C standard because the string gauge was too damn high, jajaja…. I want those times back, sometimes… *sigh*

          • KJM

            Maybe sometime from now I’ll care about something more complex than Classic Rock.

          • KJM

            How long have you been playing for? I’ve only been at it for 10 months.

          • Also, I would like to make some neofolky inspired stuff. Those arrangements are very easy with the tempo, so I can play a little bit with it. But, my knowledge of musical theory is :poop:

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            A note: I know very little about the theory of composing/playing. Never stopped me from doing either.

          • curiosity question, Mr. Bear: how can you deal with tempo, key or time signature if you don’t know too much of theory?

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            You don’t accelerate or slown down during a part (or a song). If it sounds good, there’s no need to pay attention to the time signature (just what I said about tempo) and tbh I didn’t initially even care about key. I just played a note that sounded good after the first one.

            After a while things like key and time signatures and tempo start to come more naturally and easy if you just keep paying attention to what you play.

          • It doesn’t matter. For example, this goverment was very driven by state capitalism and was selled as socialism by the media lol. Those are kind of things that I try to fight with my college classes.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Yeah you see that. Take China for example. It’s more capitalistic than US, if possible, but it’s still passed as socialism/communism, even the party is called socialist party. And furthermore, there has never been a single communist country in the world, ever. Yet we talk as if there had been.

          • You must be joking. Right?

          • more beer

            We have the worst media in the world. Nothing but lie`s, fear mongering, and celebrity bullshit.

          • You mean to sit there and say China is not a communist country? Please explain your logic behind that statement.

            GL

          • Guacamole Jim

            Communism, true communism, has no government.

            China has a government. It’s totalitarian. You could make a linguistic argument that “communism” in practical application is not the same as “communism” in ideology, but as it stands, China isn’t communistic.

          • KJM

            China is a capitalist paradise that we subsidize like crazy. They buy our debt, we buy their junk.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Before I go on, I must ask if you are joking. I am only great at detecting sarcasm IRL

          • I am not joking.

            GL

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            OK.
            Here are only some major reasons behind my statemenr, I will not go into greter detail because it is futile at this point.

            First, there is no proletarit (workers). In communism they are the leading class. No party or person can stand above this class that is the mass. In China a party and one man have always ruled, therefore it is an inequal dictatorship.

            Second, Wealth is divided to people and to get wealth/fiod etc you must work. Thus thr need for internal currency is removed. As the state owns everything and everyone works for the state, which is governed by the onlyv remaining class proletariat, no one needs to use money. This is why they aim to produce everything in the state eliminating the need to buy from elsewhere. China thrives on wealth and currency, the factories produce and nothing stays at home. Money and education determine your place, therefore not communism.

            If that is the best we can get. But I do urge you (and everyone, really) to compare US to China and spot the similarities.

          • KJM

            The US and China are joined at the hip. It is a disgusting, parasitic relationship.

          • Guacamole Jim

            The craziest part is that the US owes multiple trillions of dollars to China. Multiple trillions. No human being can even fathom that number.

          • Do some research on global debt. The numbers mean little. Who do you think owns China debt?

            Yep, and they sell us trillions of USD worth of cheap junk that’s designed to break so we can buy trillions of dollars worth more to replace it and things like that are why I take 2 different kinds of BP meds fuck this shit kill me now

            It`s all Fiat Currency which is based on good faith and not commodities like gold and silver. Since it is not based on physical commodities. If people lose faith in a nations paper money it`s considered worthless, as it can not be converted or redeemed for a physical commodity. Which means the holder of Fiat Currency is pretty much screwed.

          • The best part is that the US exploits low wages in China to our benefit. I kinda feel bad for the Chinese workers, in that sense.

          • I don’t disagree with your capitalist arguments. I am talking about the communist party. If you do not have a say in what you want you government to do, what do you call that?

            Totalitarian.

            Also, totalitarian dictatorship, or just dictatorship.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Totalitarianism is far closer I think.

          • So do you think people of a totalitarian society are as oppressed as those in a country ruled by “communism”? Aren’t the people still restricted? What difference does it make what you call it?

            GL

          • Guacamole Jim

            The difference is ideological. Totalitarianism does not mean communism, and vice versa. Just because China’s government claims to be communist doesn’t mean that they are, and like Nordling explained above, their actions clearly go against fundamental communistic tenets. He had judged (and correctly so, I believe) that China is not a communist country, as they claim to be, but rather a totalitarian dictatorship playing the international capitalist game.

            What we call it doean’t really change anything. I just really appreciate Marx’s vision and it really hurts me when people don’t think of it when they think of communism. They think of USSR and China and that, for me, is sad. Because I can see from where he came from and why he thought it was for the best. These others are just shit.

            The oppression in these countries is largely because people don’t want it. When you look at Nazi-Germany, people wanted it. Hitler didn’t exactly turn on his promises nearly as bad as, say, Mao. Germany was a fucked up country and Hitler was the easy way out. China didn’t have a need for what it got, even if it was fucked up. So people don’t appreciate the government and that leads to trouble. Also, times are different, no longer are people in most countries so easily accepting, because it’s a smaller world and getting hard to keep you out of it.

            As a friend likes to say “In the Corporate State, all media is State Media”. There are very few exceptions to that rule, and you won’t find them on major networks.

    • did you catch that joke of a review of the new Periphery album? (you know where to find it).

      • YourLogicIsFlushed

        Nope, I have resolved to not read any reviews because I hate other people’s opinions on Periphery.

      Except, no one knows who is in this band. But yes, I would assume they wear robes.

      This album is so damn good. Great band. I think they might be at or near the top of the class for the “creepy, dissonant, esoteric black/death/doom metal band” style. I hope they release their new one this year (I think I remember hearing a rumor that they were?)

      wow, this is some truly evil sounding stuff, just discovered another band, thanks dude!!!

    I am having trouble getting past the name “Servers” due to my IT background. I just can’t take it seriously. But at least I didn’t think of ‘servers’ as in those who wait tables…

    Except now I have. And that image has overtaken the last one.

    Nice write up, @James_Jimmy_McNulty:disqus . I like a bit of rawk every now and again to mix it up. My go to album (and has been for a long time) is Witchcraft’s Legend and it made my 2012 top 10 list. They changed their production sound a lot on this album going from vintage seventies sounding retro rockers on their first three albums to modern rock masterminds. If you haven’t heard of them you can check out the link below. They are riff machines!

    Toilet I have made a fool of myself.
    For the longest time I thought this album was yet to be released! “dont miss this…coming soon!” type thing. I have had the Rocknation stream of this album playing 24/7 since this article went live. I returned to this here Toilet to reconfirm when this album was dropping because DAMMIT I COULD WAIT NO LONGER and boom. Came out last year. Nuts. I dont know how I convinced myself otherwise…
