Mojo’s Pick of the Week – Blackwülf

BlackwulfI don’t even know how I stumbled onto the Bandcamp page for Oakland’s Blackwülf but when I sparked up the stream for their latest release, I got the same feeling I get when I find random money in my pocket. Billing themselves as doom or stoner rock, Blackwülf sounds like a throwback to late 70s heavy metal powerhouses like Judas Priest and Black Sabbath. Killer heavy riffs and a very organic sludgy sound. A new local favorite for me!

Blackwülf’s latest release “Oblivion Cycle” (December 2015) is available on vinyl, CD and download through Ripple Music, and download/streaming is available from Bandcamp.

Mojo’s Pick of the Week – Black Stone Cherry “Kentucky”

Black Stone CherrySouthern fried hard rockers Black Stone Cherry are back with their latest full-length album, “Kentucky”, released on April 1, 2016.

The Kentucky band’s fifth studio offering is a powerful album of polished heavy rock punctuated with soulful ballads and a spirited cover of the classic anti-war song “War”.

This follow up to 2014’s Magic Mountain grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go. High energy hard rock with a distinctly Southern edge, this is the sound of a young band at the top of its game. Definitely check these guys out!

Mojo’s Pick of the Week – Anthrax “For All Kings”

Anthrax For All KingsHow can my pick of the week be anything other than the latest album from thrash metal legends Anthrax?

For All Kings is the band’s 11th studio album, and their second since bringing singer Joey Belladonna back into the fold after being fronted by John Bush of Armored Saint. While the previous album Worship Music was well-received, it was partly written with then-vocalist Dan Nelson in a period of membership turmoil. For All Kings is a true return to form for the legendary Big Four members, sounding like they picked up right where they left off after their outsanding 1990 opus Persistence of Time.

This is an excellent, solid album, the way albums are meant to sound, ebbing and flowing and chock full of strong cuts like Blood Eagle Wings and Breathing Lightning. It just cracked the Billboard top 10 albums, which means you’ve probably bought it already or at least heard it. And if not, what are you waiting for? It’s fucking Anthrax!
