Doomstress Southeastern Tour Starts This Week; Playing Slaughter Que and More

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 17th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

doomstress

As you can see on the list of dates below, it’s a well-tagged tour upon which Doomstress will embark later this week, heading out from their home in Houston, Texas, in order to make a stop in Atlanta for the Slaughter Que festival, where they’ll join the very metal likes of Exhorder, Exodus, Kataklysm, Krisiun and copious others whose names either do or don’t begin with the letters ‘e’ and ‘k.’ I believe that in itself is enough to qualify as “metal AF” in social media parlance, but it’s not at all the only show Domstress have lined up, as they’ll make two stops in Louisiana beforehand and hit North Carolina, Florida and Mississippi before they’re done.

Over the last couple years, Doomstress have mastered this method of getting out for a week or so and carving up the US by region, hitting this or that part of the country on kind of a longform overarching tour. All the better for them to do so now that they have their 2019 debut album, Sleep Among the Dead (review here), out on Ripple Music and DHU Records to support.

You’ve heard it, I know, but you can stream the album at the bottom of this post just in case, and tell your friends to go see Doomstress even if you’re not somewhere they’ll be. You have friends everywhere, even if you don’t know it.

Dates follow:

The Obsessed Cancel European Tour; Playing Descendants of Crom III This Weekend

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 17th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

the obsessed (photo by David Torrence)

Come on, Norway. You could let Wino in at this point. It’s been five years. Considering it as a punitive measure, I can’t even imagine how much the loss of European touring income would be in terms of paying a fine. Certainly enough for however much drugs it was he got busted with at the border. Shit happens. Dude took the hit, so maybe time to move on?

It’s a bummer that The Obsessed‘s return trip to the Schengen countries and greater Europe has been nixed on account of ongoing fallout from that arrest, but the band, who also toured earlier this year in the States with C.O.C. and Crowbar, will appear this coming weekend at Descendants of Crom III in Pittsburgh, so the news isn’t all bad. They’ll be more than welcome I’m sure as they take the place of ASG on that bill and join the ranks of Solace, Foghound, Valkyrie and hometown heroes Argus, among many others. That’s pretty much a guaranteed good time.

Wino posted the following through the social medias:

the obsessed descendants of crom iii

Hello to all our fans and friends .

We are saddened to say that all European Obsessed shows in fall have been cancelled .

The facts are: After an arrest in Norway I was banned from Norway and all the Schengen countries for five years. Its been five years . Recently we found out, only by chance, that the Norwegian govt was not only deceptive about the ability to enter other countries by visa but also intentionally delayed filing my appeal that I filed in a timely manner in accordance with Norwegian law. This added an extra year to the ban consequently keeping THE OBSESSED from being able to play in Europe (UK is not included in the ban).

I feel I have been wronged by these events. I have accepted responsibility for my actions initially but now our hands are tied. Knowledge of these actions by the Norwegian govt only came to light when i arrived in Berlin to play acoustic set at Desertfest earlier this year. After being detained 10 hours i was luckily granted a temporary three day visa, but advised by the German border police of the extended ban etc. We are seeking legal recourse now and will be over to play as soon as we can. Our most sincere apologies.

We will be playing in Pittsburgh Saturday September 21st at the Descendants of Crom III festival. Great lineup….. it’s going to be a kick ass night. See you there.

Thanks to all who believe.

Clutch Release New Recording of “Electric Worry” for Weathermaker Vault Series; Confirm Passing of Former Keyboardist

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 17th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

‘Doctor or lawyer, I’ll never be/Life of a drifter, only life for me/You can have your riches, all the gold you saved/Ain’t room for one thing in everybody’s grave.’ Tattoo it on every Clutch fan’s forehead. The new studio-recorded version of “Electric Worry” is more akin to how they’ve been doing the song live for the last however many years. Vocalist Neil Fallon calls it “leaner, meaner,” which is fair enough since the original had organ and blues harp on it, but really, if they wanted to do this song with an orchestra I think they could pull it off. Some things just work and this track is one of them. Got a new version? Yeah, I’ll take that. Put one out every other year from now until forever and I don’t imagine anyone would get tired of it, or if they did, that someone else wouldn’t pick up the slack. It’s that hook, man. Vamanos.

As it works out, the timing on the release of the single and video is a little awkward, as the press release below came in on Friday, tour dates rockin’ and all that, and then yesterday the band posted word that keyboardist Mick Schauer, whose contribution to the original “Electric Worry” helped make it such a landmark for the band, has died. Schauer had been out of the band for a decade at this point, but still.

The video, which you can see below, was filmed in Europe this summer. You can see the Hellfest crowd and a bunch of others. And of course Clutch are starting another tour this week, this time headed out with Dropkick Murphys, I guess because why not.

From the PR wire:

clutch electric worry

CLUTCH RELEASE BRAND NEW 2019 STUDIO RECORDING OF CLASSIC SINGLE “ELECTRIC WORRY” IN ITS PUREST FORM AS PART OF THE “WEATHERMAKER VAULT SERIES”

Clutch announce the release of “Electric Worry.” The single is the third in a series of new studio recordings that comprise the newly launched Weathermaker Vault Series and the first new official music Clutch is making available since the release of their critically acclaimed album, Book Of Bad Decisions.

When “Electric Worry” was released in 2007 on the album “From Beale Street To Oblivion” nobody knew that this track would turn into one of Clutch’s most recognizable songs. It is a fan favorite and a staple at live shows. Over the course of time, the song went through changes. What you are listening to here is a brand new studio recording of the 2019 live version of the song without the keyboards and harmonica that are on the 2007 rendition. This is “Electric Worry” in its purest form.

“Electric Worry” was mixed by 6X Grammy Award winner and Clutch collaborator, Vance Powell (Wolfmother, The Raconteurs, Arctic Monkeys).

“All in all it’s just a leaner, meaner song” states vocalist Neil Fallon. “We wanted to put something out there that was representative of what we do these days since it happens to be one of our most popular songs.”

Clutch has curated their own Spotify playlist “Clutch’s Heavy Rotation” at this location: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3NlZsjNNOoCvwjCv58mcNR

On Friday, September 20th, Clutch will embark on a Fall tour of the US with Dropkick Murphys along with metalcore veterans Hatebreed as direct support.

Says the band on the death of Mick Schauer: “We are saddened to hear the news of Mick Schauer’s passing. Mick was an incredible talent and he will be missed. His contribution to the albums Robot Hive Exodus and From Beale Street to Oblivion brought a new sound to the band at a time when the band sought to stretch into new territory. Mick helped us to achieve those goals and more. He was also a powerful force at our live shows. His natural ability was unmatched and his love for the music made us all play better. We are grateful for having had the opportunity to make music with you Mick!”

Abronia Announce New LP The Whole of Each Eye out Oct. 25

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 16th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

abronia

Psychedelic pastoralia would seem to be the order of the day on Abronia‘s second album, The Whole of Each Eye, which is set to release next month through Cardinal Fuzz and Feeding Tube Records. All the better. Their 2017 debut, Obsidian Visions/Shadowed Lands (review here), certainly had its share of soundscape-driven characteristics, and to hear the six-piece outfit transpose that onto far-out and more folkish vibes only adds a refreshing feel to what was an already individualized approach. Mixed by Billy Frickin’ Anderson, the long-player is out Oct. 25 and there’s no audio public from it yet, but it’s got six tracks, they’re post-everything, and absolutely work their own kind of moodiness into the proceedings. I dug the last one a lot. I have the feeling that as I get to know it better the situation will be much the same with the follow-up.

Album info follows, courtesy of the PR wire:

abronia the whole of each eye

Cardinal Fuzz and Feeding Tube Records are proud to bring to you the latest long player from ‘Abronia’ (Portland USA)

The follow up to their debut, The Whole of Each Eye sees Abronia cementing its very singular place in the canon of the broader psych rock universe. A six piece consisting of two guitars, electric bass, tenor saxophone, pedal steel, and one 32” inch bass drum (no drum set here), Abronia pulls from kraut rock, spaghetti Western soundtracks, doom, 60’s UK folk, spiritual jazz, ritualistic drone, and infuse it all with the arid haze of deserts near and far.

Recorded, as the first album was, at Type Foundry in Portland, but mixed this time by Billy Anderson (known for his work with Sleep, OM, Neurosis, and many other heavy legends), the band builds off of the solid foundation of the first album. There are still hooks and visceral, crushingly satisfying payoffs, but there’s a deeper complexity to these arrangements that rewards careful listeners and searchers.

And while almost half of the last album was entirely instrumental, you’ll find no purely instrumental tracks on this one. This time Keelin’s voice has come to the forefront–a deep and deadly force that brings to mind Nico, Grace Slick, Jarboe, Malaria’s Bettina Köster, and White Magic’s Mira Billotte. Note the dynamics–from the subdued falsetto on the first half of “Cauldron’s Gold” to the murderous scream at the end of “Half Hail.”

Another obvious change if you read the liner notes–three of the six members have switched out since the last album, which would seem like a big deal if it hadn’t happened in such a staggered and organic way. Rick Pedrosa is deeply part of the crew by this point–he joined the band on pedal steel a month after the first album was recorded (September 2016)–replacing the lap steel player–Andrew Endres, Paul Michael Schaefer replaced Benjamin Blake on guitar just after the album release show (July 2017). Shaun Lyvers is the newest member–replacing the continent roaming Amir Amadi on bass in spring of 2018.

Abronia is very much a band. Songs are written together at practice with everybody contributing.

Tracklisting:
1. Wound Site
2. Rope of Fire
3. Cross the Hill
4. New Winds for the Warming Sands
5. Half Hail
6. Cauldron’s Gold

Bask Post “New Dominion” Video; III out Nov. 8

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 16th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

bask (Photo by Jamie Kay and Arlie)

Asheville’s Bask have set a Nov. 8 release for their Season of Mist debut album, III, and posted a video for the track “New Dominion” from the record. Amid shimmering guitar and fervent underlying chug speaking to the tension that plays out rhythmically in progressive fashion, the four-piece offer crash and melody alike, precise and their delivery but not impatient in going about their building movement. It’s modern in the post-Baroness sense, but less hued to that identity outright in its noodling, and, frankly, less pretentious. That’s certainly a welcome aesthetic shift, and the interplay of guitar layers here and vocals overtop bodes well for digging into the rest of the full-length, which is still a month and a half away, but will no doubt be led into with more teaser audio along the way. In the meantime, the colors in the video for “New Dominion” feel exceedingly well earned, so dig in at the bottom of this post.

III details follow, courtesy of the PR wire:

Nazca Space Fox Post “Windhund”; Pi out Sept. 27

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 16th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

nazca space fox

One can definitely hear shades of Yawning Man in the sun-reflecting guitar tone of Germany’s Nazca Space Fox, whose second album, Pi, will see release on Sept. 27 through Tonzonen, but that’s more of a beginning point than an end point, and fair enough then that it should arrive via a stream of “Windhund.” The opening track of the impending long-player answers back some of the drift from the Frankfurt trio’s 2017 self-titled debut, which took a similarly mellow-heavy tack, and wants nothing for fluidity while adding a further sense of clearheadedness to the production, directing a jam even as it seems to be unfolding. Entirely instrumental, the song runs eight and a half minutes, so should give you plenty of opportunity to dig into its vibe, and I think once you do, you’ll agree it was worth the trip. I’ll admit I hadn’t heard these cats before, but I’m glad to have the opportunity to get on board here.

From the PR wire:

nazca space fox pi

Get Your Psychedelic Rock Groove on with the New Nazca Space Fox Single Windhund!

New Album Pi out late September!

Pi was recorded in several live sessions and now German trio Nazca Space Fox has now reached the place where they feel most comfortable: Between big melodies, loud, groovy riffs and fragile sound parts. The 6 tracks on Pi are more structured and focused than before, yet improvisation was given enough space to unfold. The basic instruments speak for themselves: drums, guitar, bass. Groovy and powerful. Light and fragile. Post-Rock merges with Stoner & Psychedelic.

Pi will be available on limited edition vinyl, CD and digital from Tonzonen Records on September 27, 2019.

The self titled debut album from instrumental rock band Nazca Space Fox was released in 2017, it sold out soon. Now, after numerous live shows (e.g. with ¡Pendejo!, Powder for Pigeons, The Sonic Dawn, Thundermother, Giöbia, Electric Moon) and gigs at major festivals (Burg Herzberg, PsyKa), Nazca Space Fox are back with their second album Pi, which stands for the Indian expression for place or location.

Love Gang Release Debut LP Dead Man’s Game Today

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 13th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

love gang

Working with such classic themes as getting wasted and playing metal, Love Gang‘s first album, Dead Man’s Game, is out today through the band’s own Colfax Records imprint. and it’s a banger in the classic tradition thereof. Actually, it’s kind of a lot of things in the classic tradition. The flute shows up — whew — early and often, and does so amid killer riffs, gravel-throat vocals and an abiding sense that these dudes recorded in between getting off one stage and getting on another, which is just how it should be. Comprised of nine tracks with names like “Addiction” and “Heavy Metal Thunder” and “The Nightwalker,” it’s next-generation metallic rock that wants to be the kind of album you tell your friends about. So friends, I’m telling you. It’s out today.

They’re touring out west next month, including dates with Mothership, which I think once you listen to the record you’ll agree is a sick-ass pairing.

Have at you:

love gang dead mans game

Formed in 2015, Love Gang is a high-energy rock ‘n roll band based out of Denver, Colorado. Influenced by the obscure and underground rock of the 70s, Love Gang is a throwback to the golden days of rock when amps were loud, hair was long, and the drugs were cheap.

Focusing on concise songwriting and an energetic live show, Love Gang is a rock ‘n roll band at its’ core with bits of psychedelia thrown in for good measure. Propelled by wailing guitars and overdriven organ, Love Gang holds nothing back, each song going full-speed ahead full of blues boogie and hard-hitting rock ‘n roll.

Love Gang toured with Wolfmother as direct support on their most recent US dates last fall and have an upcoming tour, half of which will be supporting Mothership:

Love Gang tour dates:
10/09 Albany, CA @ Ivy Room

Caustic Casanova Premiere “Fancy English”; God How I Envy the Deaf out Oct. 18

Posted in audiObelisk, Whathaveyou on September 13th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

caustic casanova

Washington D.C. heavy prog noise rockers — that’s right — Caustic Casanova will release their new album, God How I Envy the Deaf, through Magnetic Eye Records on Oct. 18. On Nov. 2, they’ll also play the label’s Day of Doom label showcase at Brooklyn’s famed Saint Vitus Bar, and thereafter take off on the latest their ongoing string of tours. That tour follows, wait for it, several others the now-four-piece have conducted thus far this year, and the album goes in some way toward explaining the intangible aspects of their sound.

To wit, just about no one who listens to Caustic Casanova knows what to make of them. Right? Did you see the part above when I called them “heavy prog noise rockers?” What the hell does that even mean? Are they that? Are they heavy college rock indie? Are they hard alternative? Semi-grown-up punk? Depends which song you listen to, really — and their sound encompasses all of it — but with God How I Envy the Deaf, it becomes a little clearer why. It’s the D.C. in them. This is the town that produced Funkadelic and Minor Threat. It’s not a place where artists have felt compelled to follow the rules about where genre lines are meant to reside, and so if Caustic Casanova sound just as comfortable in the psychedelic post-thrash of “Memory King” as they do balancing crunch riffs against dual-vocals and airy post-rock leads in “Truth Syrup,” it seems only appropriate to look at where they’re coming from as part of the reason behind that.

Well, that and they’re obviously a buncha weirdos.

Go get ’em, weirdos!

Comprising nine tracks in 50 gonna-be-reviewed-by-me-sooner-or-later minutes, God How I Envy the Deaf is led off by “Fancy English,” the premiere of which you can stream below. Take a second, get your brain in order, and dig in:

Caustic Casanova God How I Envy the Deaf

CAUSTIC CASANOVA Return with Exultant New Album GOD HOW I ENVY THE DEAF

New album of angular heavy rock anthems from hard-touring D.C. genre-benders arrives October 18th

Relentless road-dogs CAUSTIC CASANOVA will release their new album, God How I Envy The Deaf, this October via Magnetic Eye Records. The record lands after a nearly two-month cross-country tour and only weeks prior to another trek in support of the confident collection of singable riff-punk anthems, establishing yet again that this band won’t be held to any sort of predictable musical path nor many nights sleeping in their own beds.

Since forming as teenagers at the College of William & Mary in 2005, Caustic Casanova have weathered lineup changes and life-threatening injuries while maintaining an aggressive DIY touring ethic, and their eclectic sound has made them a favorite in a crowded scene.

Following drummer/vocalist Stefanie Zaenker’s recovery from wrist injuries that nearly ended her ability to play, the band the band released the critically acclaimed LP Breaks in 2015 on Kylesa’s Retro Futurist Records, as well as a trio of EPs between 2013 and 2018 that paired original songs with classics from Pentagram, the Melvins and Weedeater. This hard work led to nominations for multiple Washington Area Music Awards in 2019, as well as a deal with Magnetic Eye Records to release the much-anticipated new album.

Looking to the future, the band (Zaenker, along with bassist/vocalist Francis Beringer, guitarist Jake Kimberley and guitarist Andrew Yonki) have already begun work on material for their next album. First, though, the road-hardened unit will be showcasing the genre-mashing twists and alchemies of God How I Envy the Deaf across the world, including a slot at Magnetic Eye’s upcoming Day of Doom label showcase this November, with lots more live dates to come.

God How I Envy The Deaf will be released on digital, CD and LP from Magnetic Eye Records on October 18th.

Current Caustic Casanova Live Dates:
9/13 – Shepherstown, WV at Domestic
9/14 – Winooski, VT at Monkey Bar (Ghastly Sound album release)
