Don’t let the album cover or the fact that this band is from Sweden fool you, this is not death metal by any stretch of the imagination. Instead, it’s an album of pure blues-based heavy rock in the vein of The Sword, early Iron Maiden, Dio-era Black Sabbath, with some Wolfmother thrown in for good measure. It has a great 70s metal vibe from start to finish.
Nekromant (formerly Serpent) recently signed to Ripple Music, a small but mighty label known for hand picking the best up and coming pysch, stoner and heavy rock. The Nekromant Lives is the third album from the heavy metal trio and the first on Ripple. I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more from these guys in the future!
Standout tracks: The Nekromant Lives, Scorpio, Blood for Walpurgis. Available on Bandcamp and from Ripple Records.
Good god y’all, Tom Morello just dropped his latest solo album The Atlas Underground, which is as chock full of collaborators as a Snickers is full of nuts. Artists like Big Boi, Gary Clark Jr. and more are featured on each track of the ex-RAtM and Audioslave guitarist’s album. It’s a testament to his musicianship that this album manages to hang together as a work despite the range of influences and artists.
Part hip hop, part avant-garde alternative rock, and with a thread of Rage throughout, this is a must listen album. Standout tracks: Battle Sirens (feat. Knife Party), Every Step That I Take (feat. Portugal. The Man and Whethan), and Vigilante Nocturno (feat. Carl Restivo)
Release date: Oct. 12, 2018. Download or stream on your choice of sites, find the links here!
New Song from Mojo’s Army! For this funky version I had the pleasure of working with very talented Stevie Caldwell of And Then There Was One, who graciously lent her vocals to this jam.
This song will be exclusively streaming on YouTube until the EP is released. These and future songs will be available for early preview to email subscribers, so if you haven’t sign up, sign up!
As I mentioned before, the EP “Every Time You Break” will consist of wildly different takes on the same song. There will be at least one more version before the EP is released. The next one will be Heavy!
