The Second Coming of Heavy — Chapter Three out June 24

Posted in Whathaveyou on May 16th, 2016 by H.P. Taskmaster

Ripple Music is keeping pace with its split series The Second Coming of Heavy. The second installment — or chapter, as it were — included cuts from Supervoid and Red Desert (review here), while the first paired Geezer and Borracho (review here). For the third, it’s Sweden’s Kingnomad and Michigan good-timers BoneHawk doing the honors, and the limited-run LP (300 copies) will be released June 24. I don’t know if Ripple‘s plan is one per year, two per year or “as often as we feel like,” but they’re working at a good clip to get through the series, which last I heard was going to have 10 installments, all of them already booked.

Info from the PR wire on The Second Coming of Heavy — Chapter Three follows, as well as tracks from Kingnomad (who I hadn’t heard before but sound awesome) and BoneHawk (less of a surprise, but still cool), which you can stream:

The return of Ripple Music’s The Second Coming Of Heavy; Chapter III | New split album from BoneHawk and Kingnomad

The Second Coming Of Heavy; Chapter III is released on vinyl on 24 June 2016

Already recognised as one of the world’s leading purveyors of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Stoner, Doom and Heavy Psych, Ripple Music upped the ante in 2015 with the arrival of one of the year’s most ambitious projects, The Second Coming Of Heavy.

Serving as an ongoing showcase for some of the best and heaviest bands emerging from the underground, each instalment shines a light on those worthy of your attention. Consisting of one, 12” slab of multicoloured vinyl with full colour sleeves and inserts, the series is designed to be saved and treasured, like a fine anthology of books. So much so, when the albums are filed next to each other, the complete collection of aligned spines forms a mind-blowing image direct from the underground.

Following on from the series’ first instalment released last summer featuring Geezer and Borracho, and February’s Chapter II’s split between Supervoid and Red Desert, the latest chapter, released this June offers up new music from hard hitting Michigan quartet BoneHawk and Sweden’s Kingnomad.

The Second Coming Of Heavy; Chapter III will get an official vinyl release on 24th June 2016 and is limited to 300 copies in three alternative versions (100 of each) – The Resurrection Edition, The Risen OBI and The Ascension Edition.

BoneHawk Release Albino Rhino on Ripple Music

Posted in Whathaveyou on April 26th, 2016 by H.P. Taskmaster

bonehawk

Michigan heavy rockers BoneHawk have issued their debut album, Albino Rhino, via Ripple Music. The awaited offering follows behind a late-2014 self-released edition and a limited vinyl run through Hornacious Wax Records. There was a second pressing of that, but like the first one, it went quickly. No word on a third for the LP, but Ripple‘s CD edition is out now, and to the best of my knowledge it’s the first compactular discus edition, and no doubt its reception will be as here-and-gone as was the vinyl.

The PR wire brings copious background for those who’d dig in:

bonehawk albino rhino

BoneHawk: Share brand new album from hard hitting Michigan quartet, out now on Ripple Music

The story of BoneHawk is one that started as early as third grade, in an unassuming Kalamazoo school, where guitarist/vocalist Matt Helt and guitarist Chad Houts first met and bonded instantly over a shared appreciation of video games, pizza, poster girls and rock and roll. At the age of fourteen, Helt, already an accomplished drummer would jam along with Houts in the family’s basement to songs handpicked from the pair’s ever growing record collections. As the years passed by with each feeding the other on a steady diet of thrash metal and classic rock, when Helt eventually succumbed to the bug and traded in his drum set for a guitar, the duo quickly discovered that being in a band meant everything.

After toiling in various local outfits for years, around 2006 Helt and Houts formed Mesa with close friend Joel Wick (Quixote, Jihad), with the three deciding to put together something that paid homage to the heavy riffs they discovered as teens growing up in the mid 90s. Specifically, that beguiling breed of heavy rock directly influenced by the mighty Black Sabbath. The band would only release one record during this period, a 7” on Michigan’s UFO Dictator Records before breaking up to clear a path for the official formation of BoneHawk in 2011.

Helt and Houts envisioned combining Iron Maiden and Thin Lizzy-esque harmonies with the straight-up grooves of Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and the twin guitar assault of Judas Priest and Kiss. Enlisting old band mate Chris Voss on bass, after the departure of Wick the trio set about recording their debut album Albino Rhino, with Helt taking on vocal duties and returning to the drum stool.

Recorded and mixed by Jim Diamond at Ghetto Recorders in Detroit and initially released as a limited run of ‘Albino vinyl’ through Hornacious Wax Records in 2014, with newly appointed personnel in the form of drummer Jay Rylander and bassist Taylor Wallace (formerly of Wilson) the band played packed out local shows in support of the record. In less than two months all double LP copies of Albino Rhino had sold out, calling for a second ‘Ultraviolet Purple’ pressing and leaving Ripple Music boss Todd Severin in no doubt about the band’s true potential.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Bonehawk,” explains Severin. “From the moment I heard their two guitar blitz I was hooked on their sound. Albino Rhino is a masterwork of modern harmony guitar and post NWOBHM heaviness, with real stoner grit. A true gem of an album and we’re excited to be involved in the worldwide release of this CD.”

Beast in the Field Call it Quits; Announce Last Detroit Show

Posted in Whathaveyou on April 6th, 2016 by H.P. Taskmaster

Some bummer news out of Michigan imprint Saw Her Ghost Records, the longtime imprint of crushing instrumental duo Beast in the Field (among others), which has announced that the band has decided to break-up. Based in Midland, MI, and comprised of drummer Jamie Jahr and guitarist Jordan Pries, Beast in the Field will play what will reportedly be their final Detroit show on April 30 at Small’s with Nuke and Bison Machine. There may be more dates after that, as the band says in the works, but it would seem like pending that, they’re done.

Beast in the Field issued five full-lengths together on Saw Her Ghost between 2007 and 2013, the last of which, The Sacred Above, The Sacred Below (review here, streamed here), offered a consuming 71 minutes of thick-toned, hard-hit obliteration. Deeply atmospheric in spite of being so outwardly heavy, it pushed the band’s Satanic themes on 2011’s Lucifer, Bearer of Light to the side in favor of statements more grounded in social issues of environment and the atrocities committed against Native Americans. That they managed to make such a statement, and make it so loudly, without the use of lyrics, only seemed to make the album’s artwork more evocative.

Their final release was the comic book (also wordless) and live album combo The Astral Path to Satan’s Throne (review here), which reaffirmed the impact of their onstage assault that I was fortunate enough to also see in 2014. To my knowledge, they never toured widely outside of the Midwest, and it looks like they never will, but Beast in the Field crafted a reputation for devastating heft delivered through a mountain of amplifiers, and cut their progression short at a moment when it seemed like they were just beginning to branch out in new and exciting ways. I was looking forward to their next album. They’ll be missed.

Here’s word from the label and a few brief notes from the band:

beast in the field (Photo by Chantal Roeske)

It’s been hard to keep this to myself, but April 30 at Small’s will be Beast In The Field’s last Detroit show. Jamie and Jordan are calling it quits. They’re two of my best friends. Anyone who really knows us knows how close we are and how intertwined our musical lives have been for the near decade long span of Beast. I’ve seen most of this country with them and lived some of the best experiences a guy could ever wish for, not to mention having the honor and thrill of releasing all of their music.
We always had the most fun.

Whether you’ve seen them a hundred times or never, I encourage everyone to come out and be a part of this show. It’s always an experience.

Thanks friends.

Said Beast in the Field:

LAST DETROIT SHOW FOR BEAST IN THE FIELD. YEP, WE ARE ALL DONE SOON. TRYING TO SET UP A SMALL RUN FOR THE CITIES THAT REALLY ENJOYED US AND WE ENJOYED. THE END.

BoneHawk Post Video for “Los Vientos”

Posted in Bootleg Theater on January 26th, 2016 by H.P. Taskmaster

bonehawk los vientos

I’m pretty much working with a caveman brain here, but let me see if I’ve got this right: Kalamazoo, Michigan, heavy rocking post-Red Fang good-timey dual-guitar four-piece BoneHawk released their debut album, Albino Rhino, in 2014. Sold out vinyl, gatefold 2LP, purple and bone versions, the whole bit. Very nice. They have a second pressing of that record coming out next month. Meanwhile, Ripple Music has stepped in and is going to release the same album on CD on April 22.

Seems straightforward enough until you get around to BoneHawk‘s new video for “Los Vientos.” It’s loaded with stonerly charm, pizza, an oracle in what appears to be a Pulp Fiction-style briefcase, beards, etc., but that track isn’t on Albino Rhino, and even as BoneHawk get ready to reissue their debut album, they’re putting out this new song, which will be included on an installment of Ripple‘s The Second Coming of Heavy split series later this year.

Again, caveman brain, but I’m pretty sure that’s the deal. So what you wind up with is a new release coming and a new video out now but the two things are not really connected. You think that’s quirky, you should go ahead and check out the video. It was directed by Three Goats Moving Pictures, and if you’re up for a little lipreading, it has all kinds of WTF-ery going on.

More background under the player below. Enjoy:

BoneHawk, “Los Vientos” official video

BONEHAWK: Hard hitting Michigan quartet to release debut album through Ripple Music | Stream and share new video for ‘Los Vientos’

Ripple Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Michigan quartet Bonehawk, and with it the worldwide CD release of their debut album, Albino Rhino.

The story of BoneHawk is one that started as early as third grade, in an unassuming Kalamazoo school, where guitarist/vocalist Matt Helt and guitarist Chad Houts first met and bonded instantly over a shared appreciation of video games, pizza, poster girls and rock and roll.

Bison Machine, Wild Savages & SLO, Sweet Leaves Vol. I Split: The Good Times, Rolling

Posted in audiObelisk, Reviews on January 14th, 2016 by H.P. Taskmaster

sweet leaves volume one

[Click play above to stream Sweet Leaves Vol. I in full. Release date is Jan. 22. Thanks to the bands for letting me host the tracks.]

If you’re looking for a sampling of the madness infecting the Motor City’s underground these days, look no further than Sweet Leaves Vol. I. Detroit has long been an epicenter of all things raw and visceral in American rock — and by that I mean The Stooges and MC5 were from there — but in bringing together newcomer acts Bison Machine, Wild Savages and SLO across a limited-release three-way split tape, the classic form proves continually vital in the more recent outfits, each of which brings a grit of their own to reside under a heavy rock umbrella.

Appearing in that order — Bison Machine, then Wild Savages, then SLO — the tape gets more formative as it progresses through each pair of tracks, Bison Machine being the most established of the three with their debut long-player, Hoarfrost (review here), released last year on Kozmik ArtifactzWild Savages have an EP up for streaming and SLO a demo, both issued in Sept. 2015, but both of the newer acts also share ties to Bison Machine through current and former members. Wild Savages features guitarist Casey O’Ryan, who also plays in Bison Machine, and SLO guitarist/vocalist Dusty Jones is an alum as well. Clearly as each of these bands spun off or came up around the same time, everyone remained tight enough to continue to collaborate, which in giving an idea of where the Detroit area is at (Wild Savages claim Ann Arbor as home, SLO Detroit proper and Bison Machine Hamtramck), is at very least a show of overall strength.

More importantly, the tape — which is a quick listen at a little over half an hour — rocks. None of the three groups wastes any time getting down to business, and with Bison Machine‘s “Hawk on the Wind,” the Sabbathian reference of the tape’s cover proves not to be the only classic heavy source from which the release draws. The recording that produced “Hawk on the Wind” and the subsequent “Soul Seeker” is older, with guitarist John deVries in the role that O’Ryan now occupies alongside vocalist Tom Stec, bassist Anthony Franchina (who put the split together) and drummer Breck Crandell, but their methods are no less righteous than on Hoarfrost, quick-turning shuffle pervading “Hawk on the Wind” amid a catchy hook while “Soul Seeker” rests on a bed of low-end chugging and Motörheady skate in the guitar.

sweet leaves volume one tapes

The second track trips out a bit at the end, but in general, Bison Machine play it tight and don’t let up on the throttle, which makes for an easy transition into Wild Savages, who seem intent on living up to their moniker in grit, ’70s bass warmth and persistent proto-punk fuckall. “Stage Fright” has one of the most resonant hooks on Sweet Leaves Vol. I once you have a grip on what bassist Joe Kupiec is talking about — O’Ryan also provides vocals — and transitions easily into a dual-channel guitar jam atop some of the best vintage-sounding drums I’ve heard since Kadavar‘s debut from Stefan Krstovic, who has swing to match. By the time they get there, they seem to have left the verse structure behind, but even among the late-arriving boogie onslaught, they bring back the chorus for one last go. With funkier starts and stops in its early going and a similar overall approach, “Queen Bee” affirms no fluke on the part of Wild Savages, who rage in layers but with an energy that one imagines has no trouble translating live.

For SLO, their “The Darkness” and “Shield Maidens” follow a two-song demo recorded on a four-track, but already one can hear in their sound a beefed up dual-guitar via Thin Lizzy approach that, in “The Darkness” delves in its midsection into some transposed “Hole in the Sky” riffing as if to remind the listener what it’s all about. Fuzz in the guitar and bass goes full-on hairy as the song rolls to what seems to be its finish before the initial groove is revived and swirl-faded out to end, which lets “Shield Maidens,” the only song on the release that tops six minutes (though each band has a track that comes close), close out with proto-metallic rush and a grander approach vocally.

Whether that’s drummer Charlie McCutcheon or bassist Brian Blair joining Jones singing — Kevin Sullivan is the only member of the four-piece not credit with vocals on the prior demo — I don’t know, but it adds a classic metal sensibility to complement the quiet midsection and deftly intricate guitar line that transitions into an instrumental finish, thick tonally but still ready to move and keeping that fist-pump feel thanks to a late solo either from Sullivan or Jones. Their cap for Sweet Leaves Vol. I is encouraging, and that descriptor seems to apply to the release overall as well. Of course, one can’t completely summarize the complete breadth of a region’s output by getting together a couple similarly driven bands and putting together a split tape — if one could, I’d expect to see more of them — but, even in showing the direction a few of the Detroit area’s groups are taking with a brash, classically-minded heavy rock sound, Sweet Leaves Vol. I serves notice of attention-worthy doings in volume and aesthetic.

Bison Machine Announce Winter Tour; Three-Way Split Due Jan. 23

Posted in Whathaveyou on November 30th, 2015 by H.P. Taskmaster

Hamtramck, Michigan’s Bison Machine issued their Hoarfrost (review here) full-length through Kozmik Artifactz earlier this year and have already toured considerably to support its arrival, but it’s looking like they’re ready to move forward as well. The New Year will bring a new split offering with Detroiters SLO and Wild Savages, a tape limited to 150 copies that will mark the first new music from Bison Machine since the LP, and just prior to the cassette’s release, a quick tour alongside speedfreaks Against the Grain that will no doubt find both bands getting their feet under them as they plan out a vigorous 2016 filled with road time and recording.

Bison Machine have a Sabbath-reference shirt on offer and the cover art for the new split and poster for the tour can be found below. Click any and all to enlarge:

Blue Snaggletooth Announce Fall Live Dates

Posted in Whathaveyou on November 4th, 2015 by H.P. Taskmaster

blue snaggletooth

Ann Arbor, Michiganers Blue Snaggletooth released their Beyond Thule album last year and continue to support the release regionally in the Midwest this fall with an assortment of shows prior to the arrival of 2016. I guess the highlight of the bunch is probably the Dec. 10 hometown gig opening for The Sword and Royal Thunder, but they’re sharing the stage with an assortment of kickass contemporaries throughout, so plenty worth keeping up with either way.

Background on the band and the current show dates follow, courtesy of the internet and the PR wire, respectively. Dig:

blue snaggletooth tour

Blue Snaggletooth fall tour schedule.

Taking their name from a minor character (and a highly collectible action figure) in the Star Wars universe, Blue Snaggletooth were formed in 2009 by guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Chris “Box” Taylor. Blue Snaggletooth released their first album, Dimension Thule, in August 2011. While Dimension Thule was enthusiastically reviewed and fared well enough to sell out its initial press run, personal commitments led to the band splintering not long after the album was released. Undaunted, Taylor soon assembled a new lineup that’s even heavier and more impressive than the first – featuring Casey O’Ryan on guitar, Joe Kupiec on bass, and Mike Popovich on drums.

Guitarist Casey O’Ryan and bassist Joe Kupiec are rock & roll prodigies steeped in hard rock and classic boogie – as Taylor says, “They’re not brothers, but they should be,” and they give the band groove, energy, force, and powerful commitment. With Mike Popovich bringing the heavy behind the kit and Taylor wailing and laying down rhythm licks up front, this new edition is a hard rock dream machine, ready to take your mind and your ears deep into the cosmos.

After the new edition of the band honed its chops with live work, Blue Snaggletooth returned to the recording studio in early 2014, and in the following fall, the band unveiled its masterful sophomore album, Beyond Thule.

We have a bunch of shows coming up in November / December. Can’t wait to play some new stages and melt some new faces.

Blue Snaggletooth 2015 Fall Tour Schedule!
Nov. 13, Chicago, IL, The Burlington Bar with Thee Arthur Layne and BoneHawk
Nov. 14, Milwaukee, WI, Club Garibaldi, with The Architects of the Aftermath, IROCK-Z, BoneHawk

Bison Machine Announce Oct. Tour Dates

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 10th, 2015 by H.P. Taskmaster

bison machine

Michigan four-piece Bison Machine recently welcomed new guitarist Casey O’Ryan into the fold. The Hamtramck natives released their debut LP, Hoarfrost (review here), earlier this year on Kozmik Artifactz, and have been basking in the warmth ever since. O’Ryan coming aboard alongside bassist Anthony Franchina, vocalist Tom Stec and drummer Breck Crandell is no minor change for such a riff-driven band, so it should be interesting to hear when they get around to whatever they wind up putting out next (an introductory 7″, maybe?) how the dynamic of the group has shifted or if fuzz still holds the day as firmly as on the first record.

Intrigue, intrigue. While you revisit Hoarfrost via the Bandcamp stream below and think it over, feel free as well to peruse the dates of Bison Machine‘s newly-announced Oct. tour with Grand Mammoth:

bison-machine-tour-poster

Bison Machine Fall Tour

Burning bright with lysergic energy Bison Machine’s Hoarfrost – the band’s debut album originally self-released to notable acclaim among the stoner rock community earlier this year – had an official release this July through Germany’s Kozmik Artifactz/Bilocation Records, Europe’s leading purveyor of heavy psych, blues and stoner rock.

Worshippers of volume, Bison Machine have gained a reputation for their frenzied, high velocity live shows, welding Graveyard and Pentagram influenced shuffles onto the back of 70s Motor City rock and 90s stoner grooves. If you’re a fan of pounding, colossal blues and heavy Zep-driven riffs then the Hamtramck four-piece’s gnarled and muscular guitar and vocal work on tracks like ‘Cosmic Ark’, ‘Gamekeeper’s Thumb’ and ‘Viking Hand’ will leave you floored, broken and bloodied.

Hoarfrost by Bison Machine was released on CD and limited, high performance 180g vinyl on 10th July via Kozmik Artifactz/Bilocation Records.
