Five Albums Released Today that are Worth Your Time

Posted in Features on October 1st, 2013 by JJ Koczan

I’m sure there are others. Seems to be the rule of this kind of thing that, if there’s a list, sure enough there’s something left off it. So to whoever I didn’t remember to include, please know it wasn’t premeditated. Basically I woke up this morning and thought of a bunch of kickass records that came out today and, after a cup of coffee, decided to put this together. Not exactly like I’ve been stewing on the idea for weeks or anything.

But, with a stylistically varied slew from trad doom to classic metal to weirdo drone ambience, Oct. 1, 2013, does indeed feel like a special kind of day for those who might hunt down a new release. Who doesn’t like that ritual? Pre-orders are great and all, but picking up an album on the day it comes out holds a place in my heart reserved for few rites. If I could’ve gone to a midnight sale last night and picked up all of these, I’d have been there in a second.

Barring that, I hope you at least find something here you might want to check out. Like the headline says, as far as I’m concerned, these are all worth your time. Let’s go alphabetically:

3. In Solitude, Sister


Released by Metal Blade Records. Swedish metallers In Solitude return to reap the benefits of touring with Down and others in support of their 2011 sophomore outing, The World. The Flesh. The Devil. The Uppsala five-piece give traditional metal a genuine facelift with their third album, Sister, basking in some of the simplicity of approach and hook-filled songwriting of modern cult rock and casting off the grandiosity and pretense of Mercyful Fate but keeping all of the lurking sinister vibe. Look for In Solitude to make even more of an impact than they did their last time out. They’ll be touring in October with Watain. Get it here.

In Solitude, Sister

4. Iron Man, South of the Earth


Released by Metal Blade/Rise Above. 2013 has produced little news as welcome as the announcement that long-running Maryland doomers Iron Man were signing to Rise Above for the release of South of the Earth, thus ensuring they’d not only reap the benefit of that label’s considerable doomly credibility but also secure a North American issue through Metal Blade. Their first full-length with frontman Dee Calhoun, it’s also their strongest production yet, and one can only hope South of the Earth is the moment that marks Iron Man beginning to get the recognition they’ve long since deserved as not only pioneers of Maryland doom, but one of its most engaging acts. Get it here.

Iron Man, “Hail to the Haze”

5. Mühr, Messiah


Released by Canardian Records. Early in 2011, I caught wind of the debut release from Dutch outfit Mühr, and that two-song offering (discussed here) left enough of an impression that when I heard they had a follow-up coming in the form of the single-track/47-minute Messiah, I was immediately excited. A couple years later finds Mühr a much different outfit, more dynamic and patient in their builds, but still able to break into some unbridled tonal crush when they so choose. On its own,  “Messiah” is more diverse than some bands ever get in their careers, and Mühr emerge as masters of a complex aesthetic, at times gorgeous and at times terrifying. Not to be missed. Get it here.

Mühr, “Messiah”

Well, there you have it. There’s a ton of great stuff coming out this month, from bands like Horisont, Russian Circles, Pelican, Red Fang, Monster Magnet, on and on, but it’s important to start the month off right. And broke. Enjoy.

Got something I missed or something you’re especially looking forward to in the coming weeks? The comments are right there.

Black Rainbows Go Hunting among the Ruins

Posted in Bootleg Theater on September 13th, 2013 by JJ Koczan

As raucously riffed as ever, Roman trio Black Rainbows return in October with the new release Holy Moon. Billed as an EP, but comprising six songs and 38 minutes, Holy Moon will be the follow-up to 2012’s Supermothafuzzalicious! (review here), and judging from the clip below for “The Hunter,” it picks up the party right where the last album left off. I don’t know what it is about nuclear bomb test footage that goes so well with heavy rock, but damned if it doesn’t do the trick every time. Ditto car chases. You might also notice Black Rainbows riffing out in front of a few landmarks and ruins. Pretty sure I saw some of that stuff on my honeymoon.

The song itself is a tripped-out groover that — while not a cover of the Albert King song that Blue Cheer and so many others have taken on over the years — is full of switched-on Fu Manchu-style riffing and unbridled stoner rock bounce. Eminently accessible, you’ll get a feel for it quickly and hopefully come out of it glad you did.

Enjoy:

Black Rainbows, “The Hunter” official video

Heavy stuff going down…. BLACK RAINBOWS’ Holy Moon

Italian psychedelic rock band Black Rainbow’s new six-song 38-minute mini album sees the trio leave their earlier stoner rock motifs for a sound that keeps with the HEAVY but heads to the stars. ‘Holy Moon’ offers a deep brew of deep heavy space rock that follows the lineage of early Hawkwind through Loop and The Heads into White Hills, ‘Monsters Of The Highway’ recalls Monster Magnet and Thee Hypnotics with Gabriele Fiori excelling with his powered Detroit infused leads, ‘Chakra Temple’ slows things down over an Eastern drone worthy of both Simon House and The Black Sun Ensemble whilst ‘The Hunter’ adds a heavy Groundhogs boogie edge spiced up for 2013 in a similar vein to Ty Segall and Fuzz. ‘If I Was A Bird’ lessens the pace and adds a reverberating acoustic guitar as the centre piece to a tune that sounds a little like a distant Jack White vibing out to Jimmy Page. Ending with their big muff ridden ’90s sounding take on of MC5’s ‘Black To Comm’ Holy Moon shows how Black Rainbows have grown away from stoner metal into a band steeped in space rock, drones and that increasingly popular early ’90s reimagining of Detroit rock.

Black Rainbows Ready Holy Moon EP for Release and Announce Tour

Posted in Whathaveyou on August 5th, 2013 by JJ Koczan

With a runtime that’s on pace with many full-lengths at 38 minutes, Roman trio Black Rainbows‘ new EP, Holy Moon, is bound to give a full sampling of their heavy rocking wares. It should be interesting to hear their take on MC5‘s “Back to Comm,” and they can always be relied on for some potent fuzzy groove, as the proved yet again on their 2012 full-length outing, Supermothafuzzalicious! (review here). The new EP drops Oct. 1 in CD and a variety of vinyl formats detailed below and Black Rainbows will tour Europe shortly thereafter.
