finding new soul

Pretty solid progressive metal release that reminds me of Threshold, although the vocals aren’t quite in the same league as the peerless Damian Wilson. A grower that could have staying power…

Zakk Wylde was Curl of the Burl before it was Grammy-worthy…

Graveyard - “Blue Soul”

Song of the day. Love the Jack Bruce vibe on the vocals…

Pentagram - “Be Forewarned” (1972 live version from First Daze Here)

"Some people think I’m an advocate of Lucifer, and some say I’m a child of God."

Woke up with this song in my head. Absolutely chilling stuff that was so far ahead of its time in the early 70’s.

Dave Ellefson + Frankie Bello = Foo Fighters, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Thunder Dave Ellefson?

Truth.

Truth.

Saxon - “Wheels of Steel”

Woke up with this song in my head. Infectiously simple riff…

New single “Hang Up”, from Peter Murphy’s upcoming record Lion. Kind of sounds like “Fema Camp” from Killing Joke’s most recent record, which makes sense with Youth’s production. I like it… curious to see what the whole record sounds like.

I really would love to see Pallbearer in St. Louis, but I’m afraid the place will be overrun by hipsters there to see Deafheaven. Nearly ruined my experience seeing Graveyard.
