Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight Post “Evil” from Movin’ On Sessions

Posted in Whathaveyou on April 18th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

trippy wicked

With an opening riff that channels Phantom of the Opera, Trippy Wicked and the Cosmic Children of the Knight dig back into their past to unveil “Evil.” It’s not a Willie Dixon cover, which was my first thought — you might recall Cactus‘ version of that song on Restrictions, among many others — but the seven-minute piece comes from the sessions of 2009’s debut full-length, Movin’ On (review here), and in honor of the record’s 10th anniversary and the recently announced reformation of that lineup, they will post a series of lost tracks from that era. There are three of them and “Evil” is the first. The next, I’m sure, will be posted as soon as this goes live — because that’s how good my timing usually is in terms of making sure I’m constantly behind on everything — but until then, you can enjoy “Evil” at the bottom of this post. Nostalgia achieved, gents.

And that’s a quick 10 years.

Trippy Wicked release previously unreleased track “Evil” from Movin On recording sessions

Trippy Wicked & the Cosmic Children of the Knight recently announced original drummer Chris West is back in the band after a five-year departure. Given that the band also announced they were writing new material, you would be forgiven for asking why they are now releasing material from a decade ago.

Well, October 2019 marks the 10-year anniversary of the band’s debut album, Movin On. During the recording session at Chuckalumba Studios (most noted for being the studio Electric Wizard recorded Dopethrone and Let Us Pray), Trippy Wicked recorded some songs that either didn’t get an official release or have never been heard.

To mark the anniversary Trippy Wicked are releasing these songs as singles and the first of these comes in the form of “Evil’. The song had appeared on an earlier demo but this version gets the full ‘blown out amps committed to tape’ treatment that Chuckalumba does so well.

Singer Pete Holland commented on the inspiration behind “Evil”:
“Evil is about the oppression from forces that try to dictate how you should live your life, and trying to break that train of thought to be free to imagine the life you want.”

Orange Goblin Announce US Dates Starting Aug. 27

Posted in Whathaveyou on April 5th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

ORANGE GOBLIN DAVID BOULONGNE

Okay, got your calendar marked yet? Got a place to crash if you need one? Well, doesn’t matter. You can figure that out later. The point is Orange Goblin are coming to the US supporting their righteous 2018 offering, The Wolf Bites Back (review here), and they’re doing six shows, and that’s probably it for the entire album cycle. And while you’ve got your leather-bound day-planner out, you might want to make a note to yourself to send a thank you card to Muddy Roots Fest in Tennessee, because if they weren’t bringing the band over to play, the tour probably wouldn’t be happening at all, so really they’re just doing everyone a favor. So yeah, thanks Muddy Roots.

New York, Chicago, Muddy Roots, Dallas, Austin and Los Angeles. That’s it. They’re giving everyone plenty of times to get their lives in order and make showing-up happen. Frankly, if these shows don’t sell out, it’s a sad day in America.

Elevators to the Grateful Sky Release Nude this Month; Two New Songs Posted

Posted in Whathaveyou on April 3rd, 2019 by JJ Koczan

elevators to the grateful sky

April 19 is the release date for Elevators to the Grateful Sky‘s new album, Nude. It’ll be out through Greece’s Sound Effect Records after the band were caught up in the whole WTF-ness that took hold with HeviSike, their former aligned purveyor. That someone would pick them up isn’t a particular surprise — 2016’s Cape Yawn (review here), was good times all the way around — but that it’s a label with the psychedelic taste of Sound Effect should tell you something.

Mostly, when it comes right down to it, it should probably tell you to listen to the two new tracks the band have streaming in lyric videos embedded below. If it doesn’t tell you that, I will. So yeah, go ahead and give those a once-over. And it’s two of 11 total inclusions, so expect the band to have another trick or five up their collective sleeve.

Album info follows, courtesy of the label:

elevators to the grateful sky nude

Elevators to the Grateful Sky – Nude

Elevators to the Grateful Sky are back with their third firey full-length album. ‘Nude’ showcases an extremely focused sound where early 90’s Seattle-Sub Pop vibes melt with seducingly psychedelic sections, heavy riffage and dreamy, sun-burnt instrumentals. Mastered at famed Mammoth Sound Mastering studio by Dan Randall (Iron Reagan, Noothgrush, The Walking Dead OST and countless others) and decorated by carefully hand-drawn imagery by vocalist Sandro Di Girolamo, the album comes in both coloured and black vinyl versions for the first time ever on Sound Effect Records. ‘Nude’ out on April 19th 2019.

Formed in sunny Palermo, Sicily in 2011, the band has since released one self-financed demo EP and two full-length albums, Cloud Eye (2013) and Cape Yawn (2016) on Transubstans Records (SWE) and Hevi Sike Records (UK) respectively. Their new, 11-songs album showcases a mature band whose varied songwriting has blossomed into distinctive compositions influenced by 90’s grunge, stoner and alternative rock acts such as SOUNDGARDEN, ALICE IN CHAINS, MASTERS OF REALITY, QOTSA, GODMACHINE and even DEAD MEADOW and EARTH. ETTGS’s hard-hitting edge has remained intact as they cross the entire spectre between psych jamming, acoustically soothing and straight heavy music.

“Nude” has been recorded and mixed by Silvio “Spadino” Punzo between Southern and Northern Italy in different sessions along 2018, and mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering (Maine, USA).

Preorder here: https://www.soundeffect-records.gr/nude

Elevators to the Grateful Sky is:
Sandro di Girolamo – vocals and percussion
Giorgio Trombino – guitars, bass, alto saxophone, congas, keyboards, alternate lead vocals
Giuseppe Ferrara – rhythm guitars
Giulio Scavuzzo – drums, darbouka, tambourine, percussion and alternate lead vocals

Morass of Molasses Premiere “Woe Betide” from The Ties that Bind out June 7; Tour Dates Announced

Posted in audiObelisk, Whathaveyou on April 2nd, 2019 by JJ Koczan

morass of molasses

Morass of Molasses will release their second album, The Ties that Bind, on June 7 through Wasted State Records. The follow-up to the trio’s 2017 debut, These Paths We Tread is heralded by the premiere of “Woe Betide,” which you can stream at the bottom of this post, as well as a slew of live dates the band will undertake this and next month in the UK. Already veterans of Desertfest and HRH Doom vs. Stoner, the three-piece seem to solidify around a classic heavy rock sound tinged with just an element of noise to keep things dangerous.

I’m going by one track and it’s four minutes long, but even that has room for a stretch of progressive departure before the solo leads them back to the hooky verse and chorus from whence they came, so as to how the balance might shake out or if they want it to at all on the LP, I can’t say, but from the raucousness in “Woe Betide,” it certainly seems like it’ll be worth finding out.

Preorders soon. Art, info and audio now, courtesy of the PR wire:

morass of molasses the ties that bind

MORASS OF MOLASSES UNLEASH ALBUM DETAILS + FIRST SINGLE!

The Ties That Bind coming June 7th on Wasted State Records!

June 7th will see Swamp master generals of the Reading scene MORASS OF MOLASSES, return with their sophomore album on Wasted State Records. The low-tuned trio create the kind of lumbering heavy blues riffs which induce involuntary head nodding, now awake from a brief slumber, and emerge from the shadows to deliver their latest musical offering; The Ties That Bind. Taking on an altogether more earthly visage, this album is framed by themes of human connection, and delves into the deep-rooted interactions we share with each other and ourselves. The ‘Dark Forest’ motif that runs throughout this collection is the manifestation of these themes and uses familiar archetypes to guide us on this journey.

Today the band is not only sharing with us the hotly anticipated details with the album artwork and track list of The Ties That Bind, but also a first single to the track ‘Woe Betide’ Frontman Bones Huse says: ‘This song is about how quickly a relationship can change, and not allowing someone else to treat you without respect anymore. Regardless of how close you were in the past.’

The Ties That Bind Track list:

Side A
1. The Darkening
2. Woe Betide
3 . Death Of All
4 . Estranger
5 . Legend Of The Five Suns

Side B
6. As Leaves Fall
7. Persona Non Grata
8. In Our Sacred Skin
9. The Deepest Roots

In the lead up to the new album, the band will hit the road for their upcoming Goddess Shrine Tour, to allow audiences to catch a glimpse of the new material ahead of its release. Make sure to catch MORASS OF MOLASSES live at the following dates, to kick-off this Friday in their hometown Reading!

Kandodo3 to Release K3 June 21; New Video Posted

Posted in Whathaveyou on April 1st, 2019 by JJ Koczan

The last Kandodo-related release was Kandodo/McBain‘s might righteous late-2016 offering, Lost Chants/Last Chance (review here), and god damn it was awesome. New stuff from Simon Price, also of The Heads, is going to be welcome in whatever form it might take, but as Kandodo3 — otherwise known as Price and his The Heads bandmates Hugh Morgan and Wayne Maskell — get ready to issue their third full-length in the form of K3 this June and unveil the video for opening track “King Vulture,” the bliss seems particularly resonant. The only thing you really need to ask yourself is how much psychedelic mastery you can take before you need to quit. It’s okay, everyone has their lines.

Except this music. No lines. All go. Oh, and McBain sits in on “High on Planes/Drifter,” which is apparently enough on its own to consume a second LP. Just in case you needed good news to go with your good news.

Sign me up for wherever this trip is going:

kandodo k3

Kandodo3 – K3

Brand new studio full length from Bristol based sike-o-nauts, orbiting in the Heads’ realm and led by Heads’ Simon Price.

k3 continues the trajectory of outer space excursions found on previous kandodo releases.

Out of focus, relaxed and expansive vibes fuse together into serpentine rivers of minimalist rhythms and echoed tones, drawing the listener into tunnels of sound and scorched sonic landscapes.

It’s one for the headphones at 30,000 feet or late night deserted drives.

k3 finds three heads taking time out to dive into the dronal repetitions of deep space, 3 psychonauts killing time in the only way they know how; head-nodding drumfuzz layered with creamed strings. Guest guitar from fellow sike-head John McBain on the final half of the 40 minute trip which makes up sides 3 and 4.

k3 takes the autobahn, veering left past the sun and heading on till morning. There are no black holes ‘cos we’re in it: just do the half. The colours will come back with the dawn.

Settle in for the long haul and …..

Recorded over the past three years and aided by fellow Heads types H O Morgan and Wayne Maskell, this album was recorded in Bristol and on Price’s 4 track.. Mastered once again at Optimum by Shawn Joseph.

Releases June 21, 2019.

1. King Vulture
2. Lapwinger
3. Everything – Green’s – Gone
4. Holy Debut
5. The Gaping Maw
6. Loungecore
7. High on Planes / Drifter

kandodo3 is:
Hugh Owen Morgan – Bass
Wayne Maskell – Drums
Simon Price – Guitars, vocals

Cegvera Premiere “Fractals (Corrupted)” Live Video; UK Shows Announced

Posted in Bootleg Theater on April 1st, 2019 by JJ Koczan

cegvera

In the time since Bristol, UK-based post-metallers Cegvera completed their tour dates in Mexico last summer, the band has signed a management deal, supported Elder and Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard — among others — newly begun recording their second album, and most pivotally, made the transition from a trio to a two-piece, saying goodbye to bassist Aaron Scrupps in the process. As one might expect, there have been some changes in their dynamic as a result. The video premiering below for “Fractals (Corrupted)” is the first offering to come from the duo version of Cegvera and in addition to playing in the dark, as will happen, it finds guitarist Gerardo Arias covering more of the low-end in terms of tone where even on last year’s split with Vinnum Sabbathi (review here), he could be heard airing out a bit more post-rock-style drift. Drummer Matt Neicho, at least if the video is anything to go by, seems to relish in the change, and headbangs in time to his own cymbal crashes in a way that looks downright painful to my gentleman-of-a-certain-age self, adding even more force to the push of the rhythm as he goes.

“Fractals” is a song that would seem to have been around for a few years at least, with its roots in the band’s 2016 debut album that shared its name. “Fractals” from Fractals had a longer introduction from the guitar and a longer runtime as a result, but some of the crunch in the video below could also be heard on Cegvera‘s Live at Palíndromo, which was recorded in Guadalajara on the aforementioned Mexican tour and released this past January through LSDR Records, but the two-piece seem to strip it down even more, so that its progression is barely recognizable from the original “Fractals” and “Fractals (Corrupted)” becomes its own entity in this new form. Its post-metallic groove will be familiar to those who’ve been around the style long enough to understand what a “Stones from the Sky”-moment is, but it intrigues nonetheless thanks to the energy of its delivery and its blend of raw aggression and barebones atmosphere.

One has to wonder what might become of Cegvera going forward and how their sound might develop over the longer term with Arias and Neicho working on their own — if they even decide to continue on that route. “Fractals (Corrupted)” shows there’s potential for doing so — a way forward, in other words — and one suspects that after their next recording is done, the live dates below will help them further clarify the path they want to take. The rest of us will just have to wait to discover how it all shakes out, unless, you know, you can make it to a show or something like that.

Enjoy the premiere of “Fractals (Corrupted)” below, followed by more from the PR wire:

Gandalf the Green Release New Single A Billion Faces

Posted in Whathaveyou on March 29th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

gandalf the green

Gandalf the Green sound like somebody hit their riffs over the head with the ugly-stick. Filthy, doomed stoner-sludge is stock and trade for the UK at this point — it’s why they’ll be fine after crashing out of the EU — but the lumber the Huddersfield three-piece bring to the end of their new 13-minute single “A Billion Faces” is a feedback-drenched nightmare just the same, and by that I mean it’s damn good fun. They’ve got live dates coming up, including at Riffolution Festival tomorrow night, and that’s all well and good, but the single is out now through APF Records and you can get it on Bandcamp if you so please or Spotify or whatever outlet it is you choose to peruse. The song, naturally, is about parallel existences of the self in alternate universes. Duh.

Dig it:

gandalf the green a billion faces

APF Records Presents GANDALF THE GREEN – “A Billion Faces”

RELEASE DATE: 28th March 2019

Taking influence from bands like Conan, Sleep and Yob, GANDALF THE GREEN’s aim is to make slow music that is as heavy as they can possibly make it – dropping into spacey ambience and then back to crushing riffs again. The trio wanted to take a less dark and evil approach to Stoner/Doom Metal in favour of something a bit more colourful, weird and psychedelic. Music which uplifts rather than bring the mood down. Lyrical themes include Lord of the Rings, time, consciousness, and not being very sober. Someone once put it eloquently as ‘The brutality of Mordor with the serenity of the Shire.’

Gandalf The Green started in guitarist / vocalist Andy Flint’s bedroom in 2015 when the guys were all just 16 years old. “We’d previously been in a deathcore band together and knew we all liked slow and heavy music, so got together and started rehearsing with ghetto equipment in Andy’s bedroom in Huddersfield (UK). The band name came from a friend who’d just bought a Gandalf-style pipe and we found the pun hilarious for a Stoner Doom band, so we used it”.

Gandalf The Green released their debut EP ‘King of the Ashes’ in September 2016 as a 4-piece band with two guitarists, though soon after they split with their drummer and put Jack Walker behind the kit as a trio. After that things began moving properly. Since then, the three lads have been gigging more, collecting more equipment, and worsening their tinnitus by turning everything up even louder.

Gandalf The Green recently signed with APF Records, with their first release as a partnership being 13-minute stoner / doom epic “A Billion Faces”. Andy Flint’s notes on the track:

“It was the first track I wrote after we tuned down to drop F and bought a bunch of new effects, so I was really playing with all the new toys and trying to make something with a big dynamic change from the gentle intro to when it kicks in. We’ve been performing it live for a while, so the song’s evolved over time to include the sexy wah solo and, because Jack and Danny (Wrigley, bass) love noise music, we added the noise/screaming section in the outro. The original demo was only 9 minutes compared to the final 13!

We were approached by a friend of a friend who needed a band to record for his University coursework, it seemed mutually beneficial, and we’d get to record in the gorgeous Phipps Hall and borrow a bunch of Huddersfield University’s Matamp equipment for free to use with ours, so we took him up on it. We live recorded the track in December 2018 and mixed and mastered the track ourselves, so got away with recording this track for nothing. It sounded lovely in the room, but we really didn’t expect the final product to sound quite as good as it did.

Lyrically, the track is about parallel universes and how, if they exist, every different possible version of you exists somewhere in a big infinite tree of possible “yous”, experiencing the best and worst things all at once. I was wondering where I’d be if I’d taken a different turn in life and moved to a different city, and I realised that there’d be a version of me in a parallel universe where I did move there, wondering right now where he’d be if he took the turns I did. We’re both thinking about each other amongst a billion different versions of ourselves, but unable to know who the other is and what their life is like.”

“A Billion Faces” is out on APF Records on 28th March across all digital platforms, with the video for the track premiering on YouTube and Facebook. The band have a solid itinerary of gigs and tours for the rest of 2019, including appearances at Riffolution Festival on 30th March (supporting BelzebonG) and High Priestess and Cities of Mars in May.

Bright Curse Set May 10 Release for Time of the Healer; New Song Streaming

Posted in Whathaveyou on March 28th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

bright curse

Bright Curse aren’t screwing around. They could do the teaser thing, and I think there is one out there, but the first track they’re unveiling from their upcoming second album is 10 minutes long, and that’s gotta be a substantial portion of the five-track LP from whence it comes. Now signed to Ripple after the clusterfuckness that befell them as regards their former outlet HeviSike Records, they’ll follow-up 2016’s Before the Shore (review here) and their 2013 self-titled debut EP (review here) with Time of the Healer on May 10, and “Shadows” demonstrates a scope that goes well beyond its extended runtime. I doubt it’s speaking to the entirety of what the record has to offer, but it certainly represents how far Bright Curse have come well and makes for an immersive listen. I look forward to hearing how it ties in with the rest of the release.

bright curse time of the healer

BRIGHT CURSE: Heavy Psych Rockers Return with New Album on RIPPLE MUSIC | Stream and share new song ‘SHADOWS’

Time of the Healer by Bright Curse is officially released 10th May 2019 on Ripple Music

Formed in London in 2012 out of the expatriated ashes of French psychedelic rock band Soul Manifest, heavy psych trio Bright Curse is a band that requires no introduction for anyone that has kept a close ear to the underground in recent years.

Following the release of their self-titled EP in 2013, their debut album Before the Shore (2016) not only showcased the band’s remarkable song writing talents, it proved itself be a hard rock sleeper hit you simply couldn’t ignore. Well known for riffing epic spectrums of dark/light through extended jams and out-and-out doom, the band established themselves on the road, hitting festival stages at Hellfest, DesertFest Berlin and Keep it Low, and touring across Europe with fellow Londoner doom merchants, Elephant Tree.

With the dissolution of their former label, HeviSike Records, last year, the band has since teamed up with chief purveyors of riff-driven heaviness, US label Ripple Music, to ready the release of new album, Time of the Healer this May.

“Working with Ripple is just gonna be rad. Having a label that really cares for its bands, that motivation will make the difference,” explains frontman/guitarist Romain Daut.

Of the upcoming album, he adds, “It’s a come-back to a doomier version of Bright Curse, more like the first EP. The songs are a bit longer and more developed, each relates a story, and all of them work together to create some kind of tale. I didn’t want to just have another heavy album, so we added some exotic instruments and I think it serves the story really well.”

Time of the Healer by Bright Curse is officially released on 10th May 2019 on Ripple Music and can be pre-ordered here at www.ripple-music.com.

BRIGHT CURSE:
Romain Daut – Guitar, Peruvian Flute, Vocals
Sammy Deveille – Bass, Double bass
Tommy Foster – Guitar, Guitar and more Guitar.
Mark Buckwell – Drums, Percussions

TRACKLISTING:
1. Smoke of The Past
