Hoguera Post New Single “Muro”

Posted in Whathaveyou on June 16th, 2021 by JJ Koczan


Here’s a fun fact. About 13 or 14 years ago, I tore my cornea. Sliced my eyeball on the edge of a cardboard box. This was before I stopped drinking, and I’d had some wine, but I’ll maintain forever I wasn’t drunk. Anyhow, was taking out the recycling, bent down to shoulder the storm door open, and rip, there it went. Worst pain I’ve ever felt, hands down. Ask me about it sometime.

During a period of several subsequent years of ongoing issues that eventually landed me in laser surgery, among the ineffective treatments I underwent was to put an ointment on my eyeball every night so that when my eyes inevitably dried out overnight, the tear would not reopen as it did more often than not anyway. Imagine waking up every morning and ripping your cornea again.

That ointment, it just so happens, was called Muro. I never bothered until seeing this single from Argentine heavy rockers Hoguera to look up a translation for the word. It means “wall.” That’s a thing I learned today.

The La Plata four-piece released their self-titled debut in April 2020 — which is to timing what that night putting out the cardboard was to my quality of life — and recorded this new track as a follow-up earlier this year. It is efficient in its construction and would seem to carry the theme of aftermath as one inevitably must in 2021. Trauma and whatnot.

Info from the PR wire, lyric video at the bottom:

hoguera muro

While the past as we knew it disappeared, time on hold, on another level of consciousness, we returned to the same place, under the pillars Of rebellion, we will be the witnesses.

HOGUERA is a band that encompasses Rock Metal & Post Metal.

Formed in 2017 in the City of La Plata, Argentina. Its ranks are made up of experienced musicians in the local scene, the forceful rhythmic base formed by Federico Castrogiovanni (drums)and Gustavo “Tano” Bianchi (bass) dates from a long career in Humo Del Cairo. The powerful voice of. Emanuel Cacho (guitar and vocals) and Brian Bopp (guitar) complete the lineup, making it experimentation with heavy and atmospheric sounds.

Recorded in January 2021 at Lennon and SilverCity Studios, La Plata, Argentina. Mixed Juan Jose Burgos at Emmerald Sound Studios, Hollywood, FL, USA. Mastered by Mario Breuer, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Reamp Baco Ferreira y Diego Trigo en estudios MCL, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Produced by HOGUERA and Juanjo Burgos and Deliriavision cover art.

Or Anthony Premieres “Skin” Video From Layer Cake EP out Today

Posted in Bootleg Theater on June 11th, 2021 by JJ Koczan

or anthony

Starting today, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can place an order for Or Anthony‘s Layer Cake EP. The independently-released, digital-only outing runs three tracks and all of eight minutes, so it’s not about asking too much of your time, and the experimental foundation on which the material is based might just be enough to make you want to wear the t-shirt that comes with the download. The solo-project would seem to prefer to remain nameless beyond being known as Or Anthony, and that’s fine, but if you want to know what’s up beyond the artsy weirdness and cake-digging you get in the video below for “Skin” — somewhere between sexualized gore and those recipe videos where you only see the down-view of someone’s hands — the outfit’s Soundcloud page is a trove of free thought and free listening. Open mind, dive in. If you prefer a bit more presentation, it’s also all laid out in semi-explanatory fashion on his website.

or anthony micOr Anthony sent the picture here of the modified Philips headphone he used as a mic to record the vocals and guitar on “Skin,” and I feel like that does a good amount of explaining the kind of mentality he’s working with — purposefully taking something that is receive-only and making it send. The flipping-upside-down of expectation, of structure, and I guess of sound itself depending on the manipulation happening at a given moment. The EP begins with the minute-plus “Wabi,” recognizing spiritual solitude in a fading drone and whispers before the time-keeping strums, pops or whatever they are of “Skin” take hold. Compared to “Wabi” before or “Grounded” after, “Skin” is arguably the most straightforward, since its rhythmic march is accessible enough to nod along, and even as it transitions from one stage to another at will, it doesn’t completely let go of that backing beat for more than a couple seconds until its duly ethereal finish.

“Grounded” follows the pattern of blending lo-fi electronics with guitar and maybe-voice, but is less tethered on the whole — and these are relative considerations, to be sure — and pushes further out before ultimately letting go with what feels like a willful lack of ceremony. There and gone. Hey man, it’s been a long pandemic for everybody. Millions of years.

I’ll leave you to it without further delay. Ordering info is under the video.

Please enjoy:

Or Anthony, “Skin” official video premiere

Slo-Valve: Members of ZOM Announce New Project

Posted in Whathaveyou on June 9th, 2021 by JJ Koczan

No audio yet that they’re willing to share, but I’m all for an alter-ego every now and then, and Pittsburgh-based ZOM offer one up in the form of Slo-Valve. New band, same dudes. ZOM have a new full-length in the can — their third — but like a lot of people, guitarist/vocalist Gero von Dehn was hanging around in Summer 2020 with perhaps a bit of creative restlessness happening that he decided either consciously or not to channel in a way that, apparently, was separate enough to be another band. And when it came to finding players? Well, there’s nothing like knowing a good bassist and drummer.

Slo-Valve it is. You can see the story below, courtesy of the PR wire, and I imagine if you keep an eye out you’ll see or hear something from them ahead of the album to be recorded this Fall.

To the blue copy:


Current members of ZOM launch new band, Slo-Valve

Three members of Pittsburgh, PA’s ZOM have formed a new band under the name, Slo-Valve.

Describing their sound as, “Hard rockin’, riff heavy groove,” the trio aims to swing through bluesy, stonery jams with strong song structures and enough dynamics to separate themselves from genre pigeonholing.

Says singer/guitarist Gero von Dehn, “We wrapped recording of the new (as yet unreleased) ZOM record early last summer and after all that intense focus, I needed to change gears. Writing, preproduction and tracking is such an all consuming process that it’s good to get away from it for a bit after being so hyperfocused. I had all of these different ideas coming but they were different from ZOM so I just went with it and within a few months I had a bunch of songs written.

Von Dehn didn’t have to look far to find people to jam the new material with.

“I’m so blessed to have such great musicians around me in ZOM and their versatility has barely been tapped.”

Enlisted were ZOM bandmates Ben Zerbe (drums) and Sam Pesce (bass).

“Ben is such a talent and a student as a percussionist. He can play pretty much any style and do it amazingly well, as anyone who’s heard The Mandrake Project can attest to. Those guys were on a different level.”

Zerbe also played drums in Pittsburgh doom powerhouse, Monolith Wielder with von Dehn.

“Sammy is a monster on bass and a guy everyone in Pittsburgh wants in their band and I was so fortunate he agreed to join ZOM. His playing and his ideas have been incredible and he’s really spreading his wings with the material in Slo-Valve. I may have come in with the original songs but it’s really been a group effort in terms of songwriting and where those ideas went. They were both eager to be part of the entire process, not just their own parts, and it’s really paid off. The songs are quite a bit different from where they started and I mean for the better. I can’t wait for people to hear what we’ve been able to put together.”

Von Dehn says they have enough material ready to go for an album and they hope to record sometime in the fall. That doesn’t mean ZOM has taken a back seat though.

“We’re ultra stoked for the ZOM album to be released because we are so proud of that entire record. I think it’s exactly the rock n’ roll album that’s needed right now. We’re dying to get out and play the new record in front of everyone. I’m just always writing so it was natural to put something else together, especially since it’s with the same guys. They want to jam as badly and as often as I do so we play constantly. It doesn’t hurt that they happen to be awesome dudes and great friends as well.”

Hashtronaut Debut Single “Moonquake” out June 17

Posted in Whathaveyou on June 8th, 2021 by JJ Koczan

There are a few entities out there in the wilds of social media calling themselves Hashtronaut, so don’t get the wrong one. This Hashtronaut are a three-piece from Denver, the rock scene of which only seems to be getting mile higher and higher as time goes on. Boasting members of Near Dusk, The Heavy Eyes and Alamo Black, the trio bring out “Moonquake” as an initial public offering that’s just three and a half minutes long but holds promise for further exploration of weight and space to come.

Moreover, for all the tone collecting from the vastness of the void noted in their brief bio, the lyrics of “Moonquake” take a decidedly more personal view of space, turning the metaphor inward rather than indulging an all-out science fiction narrative. As to how representative the song is of the work they’ll do going forward, who the hell knows? But it’s a cool track with a blend of straight up riffage and broader atmosphere and if you gotta start somewhere, that’s a fine spot to do it.

Stream and appropriate social links follow:

Hashtronaut Moonquake

Hashtronaut – Moonquake

Hashtronaut, a doomed three-piece based out of Denver, CO, are set to release their first single, Moonquake, on 6/17 streaming on all platforms and bandcamp

The trio is made up of Dan Smith of Alamo Black on bass / vox, Kellen McInerney of Near Dusk on guitar, and Eric Garcia of Heavy Eyes on drums. Song was mixed and mastered by Matt Qualls (of Heavy Eyes) and are set to release a second single in the near future with the follow up of a full LP.

Originating in Denver, Colorado, Hashtronaut has spent the majority of the past year exploring the outer reaches of time and space. While Earth has struggled with disease, violence, and political upheaval, we have been collecting tones from the vastness of the void in hopes that they will expand your minds and unify us heading into the new frontier. We are Hashtronauts.

The Obelisk Questionnaire: Takis Chaloulakos of ADAM

Posted in Questionnaire on June 3rd, 2021 by JJ Koczan


The Obelisk Questionnaire is a series of open questions intended to give the answerer an opportunity to explore these ideas and stories from their life as deeply as they choose. Answers can be short or long, and that reveals something in itself, but the most important factor is honesty.

Based on the Proust Questionnaire, the goal over time is to show a diverse range of perspectives as those who take part bring their own points of view to answering the same questions. To see all The Obelisk Questionnaire posts, click here.

Thank you for reading and thanks to all who participate.

The Obelisk Questionnaire: Takis Chaloulakos of ADAM

How do you define what you do and how did you come to do it?

I make gloomy rock music. I write songs about the human psyche, the occult, toxic relationships and whatever random Wikipedia article I come across. I guess I started doing that because I had to find a way to express myself.

Describe your first musical memory.

My father playing records by the Doors and Elvis Presley for me when I was two years old or something. I guess this must be when I really fell in love with music.

Describe your best musical memory to date.

August 21, 2012. Genesis. The jam session that started it all. I hadn’t seen the guys in a while, so we got together for a couple of beers at the Dungeon (aka our practice space / hang out spot). One thing led to another and we ended up jamming for two hours straight. Might sound corny but this thing was transcendental. After it was over, we sat down and looked at each other and said that we should start a band. That’s how ADAM was born. That particular jam ended up as track #1 on SUN.

When was a time when a firmly held belief was tested?

I guess it was more of a slow process. Growing up and realizing that the world around you is far more weirder and darker than you thought it really was.

Where do you feel artistic progression leads?

You can lead it wherever you feel like or just lay back on the passenger seat and let it grab the wheel. You can discover more about you or art in general, perhaps find interesting stuff you’d never known you had in you. All you need is honesty and an open mind.

How do you define success?

For me, success is going to bed every night, being happy knowing the fact that you get to do what you love, just the way you want it. Fame, money and recognition are major bonus factors but not as important as knowing that your art moved and helped others.

What is something you have seen that you wish you hadn’t?

I watched a guy dive from the third floor and crash headfirst into the pavement about five feet away from me when I was 16 years old. I’d still take that over the Star Wars sequels, easy.

Describe something you haven’t created yet that you’d like to create.

I’d like to experiment more, use weirder noises and song structures. I’d love to go heavier, maybe tune down even lower. And I’d really love to make a movie soundtrack. Or multiple soundtracks.

What do you believe is the most essential function of art?

Art is your friend in the darkness. It’s there to animate the most important moments in your life. Art is meant to touch you, guide you, make you a better person. Art helps you get in touch with your true self and the deepest parts of your psyche. It helps you get to know and understand the world around you.

Something non-musical that you’re looking forward to?

Looking forward to gyms finally opening up around here. Getting to lift again after almost seven months of all around debauchery.

Sunnata Announce Summer Live Dates in Poland

Posted in Whathaveyou on June 2nd, 2021 by JJ Koczan

Those of you who might be seeing this in Poland, good news in that Sunnata will be hitting up a few cities later this summer to support their Feb. 2021 release, Burning in Heaven, Melting on Earth (review here). It’s shows more than a tour for the by-now veteran progressive/ritualistic heavy rockers, scheduled around festival shows at Egodrop and Soundrive, and of course they’re giving the caveat that like anything, they might not happen, but a return to playing at all is noteworthy at this point, so here’s me noting it.

Burning in Heaven, Melting on Earth is, to say the very least of it, an album that deserves to be played live. I was fortunate enough to see Sunnata play in Oslo at Høstsabbat 2019 (review here) — which feels simultaneously like yesterday and forever ago; the photo with the live dates is from that show as well — and after years of following their studio work, they were a thrill to behold, no less immersive than they are on record and no less entranced by the music than their audience. While we’re doing understatement, they’re a band I’d be happy to watch again if the opportunity presented itself. Not this run, but you know, universe of infinite possibility and all that.

Their social media announcement went thusly:

sunnata poland dates

IT LOOKS LIKE WE’RE GONNA PLAY A COUPLE OF LIVE SHOWS THIS SUMMER*. Mostly in major polish cities. Wanna hear “Burning in Heaven, Melting on Earth” live? Then come & visit the following events:

16.07 Egodrop Festival 2021
30.07 Lato w Plenerze | SUNNATA / Plener P23, Katowice
31.07 Lato w Plenerze | SUNNATA / Rejs, Warszawa
10.08 Soundrive Festival 2021
12.08 Road To Soulstone Gathering: Sunnata + ARRM, Inverted Mind / 12 VIII / Kraków
21.08 Lato w Plenerze | SUNNATA / Dziedziniec Tama, Pozna?

We missed it a lot.

*) Hopefully.

The Obelisk Questionnaire: Dan Blomquist of Conclave & Benthic Realm

Posted in Questionnaire on May 27th, 2021 by JJ Koczan

dan blomquist

The Obelisk Questionnaire is a series of open questions intended to give the answerer an opportunity to explore these ideas and stories from their life as deeply as they choose. Answers can be short or long, and that reveals something in itself, but the most important factor is honesty.

Based on the Proust Questionnaire, the goal over time is to show a diverse range of perspectives as those who take part bring their own points of view to answering the same questions. To see all The Obelisk Questionnaire posts, click here.

Thank you for reading and thanks to all who participate.

The Obelisk Questionnaire: Dan Blomquist of Conclave & Benthic Realm

How do you define what you do and how did you come to do it?

I currently play drums in two bands from Massachusetts, Conclave and Benthic Realm. I grew up in a musical family with both my parents being performing violinists. I took piano lessons first growing up, played hand bells at my Dad’s church, then trombone and saxophone in grade school band but ultimately found my sweet spot with smashing things in the drums around sophomore year of high school. Been my drug of choice since.

Describe your first musical memory.

How about my first musical memory of when my musical taste changed from what I was raised to listen to and learn to play, to the heavier side of music. Around 1979 or so, my Dad and I made our ritualistic trip to Radio Shack. He was an electronics engineer and a hi-fi nut so this was like his second home. This particular trip I had enough money that I bought myself a small handheld AM/FM radio. As soon as we got home I headed out to Anne’s Variety Store to go purchase some penny candy with my totally badass handheld radio.

dan blomquist radioI ran to the top of the hill on the way to the store and BOOM! I had FM Rock Radio on! KISS was playing and I’d never heard anything like them before. That was the moment my tastes changed. My Dad would break my balls after that about every single band I would introduce to him, but he always encouraged me to play… and to play “quieter.” When my Dad passed away five years ago and I had to go through his belongings at his house, I found the radio was still there in a box with all kinds of other radios and gear. I took it home and have it to this day.

Describe your best musical memory to date.

Being a kid helping my Dad by carrying his music stand into what ever music hall, conservatory or orchestra pit he was playing in. He always made me feel like I was part of the orchestra or ensemble he was playing with and it felt amazing, like I was 10 feet tall.

When was a time when a firmly held belief was tested?

I’m actually coming up empty on this one. I suppose I could go back to when I stopped believing in God, but I’m not really sure that I ever truly believed in it to begin with. I’d like to be spiritual, but we’re all just organic matter that will rot away so what’s the point. My whimsical essence isn’t going to travel through the cosmos for eternity. Make the most of the time you’ve got. It’s all you’ve got. Believe that.

Where do you feel artistic progression leads?

Ultimately, where it’s supposed to I would say. Progression in the arts can be very different from one person or form to another. So how and where you progress is kind of organic, evolutionary and unavoidable. Plus progress is the route of all evil they say, so there’s bonus points for being evil.

How do you define success?

I’d define success as being able to take something positive away from everything you do even if you seem to fail at it. In other words, if you set a weight loss goal of dropping 50 lbs in a year and lose less than that in a year, you still succeeded in progressing towards your goal. If you don’t lose sight of that, you’ll continue on and reach your ultimate goal which was to lose the weight, even if it took a longer amount of time. To fall short of your goal and stop before finishing the journey is to be unsuccessful. Don’t stop, don’t give up and you’ll always succeed.

What is something you have seen that you wish you hadn’t?

Family and friends die from alcohol, drug abuse and suicide.

Describe something you haven’t created yet that you’d like to create.

Inner peace.

What do you believe is the most essential function of art?

Feeling. Whether you’re creating it or taking it in, it’s about how it makes you feel. The artist, the viewer, the listener, the reader, all of it, all of them, everyone.

Something non-musical that you’re looking forward to?

NON-musical in the immediate future would have to be my daughter and the youngest of my three, graduating high school in June and beginning her college stem classes this summer. She’s had more than her fair share of struggles and obstacles in her life leading up to this point and I couldn’t be more proud or grateful for the beautiful and incredible person she is.
