Mojo’s Pick of the Week – Dead Rock Commandos by Nightstalker

While there are definitely some worthy new releases that could get my vote for Pick of the Week right now, I’m having too much fun listening to Dead Rock Commandos by Nightstalker to not upvote it this week.

Nightstalker is a stoner metal band from Athens, Greece, and songs from this killer 2012 full length album keep popping up in my Spotify.

Probably because I dig Puta Volcano so much, this and a couple other great Greek rock and roll bands like Villagers of Ioannina City find their way into my Daily Mix playlists constantly. I love it.

Standout tracks: Dead Rock Commandos, Go Get Some. Check out the title track from Dead Rock Commandos and get hooked like me!

Mojo’s Pick of the Week – Excruciation by Curse the Son

Of the recent very good new rock releases (and there have been many!), one that I keep coming back to is the latest full length from Connecticut’s Curse the Son.

Excruciation grabs you by the collar with the energetic gallop of “Suicide by Drummer” and leads you down some dark, dirty alleys, including twists into swampy, dirty blues along the way. Chock full of fuzzy riffs and sludgy beats overlaid with Ozzy-esque vocals, this album is a tasty sonic treat.

Fans of Black Sabbath and any of the NWOBHM bands will find this a headbanging relief from slick pop and modern production.

Standout tracks:  Suicide by Drummer, Worry Garden, Devil Doctor Blues

Mojo’s Pick of the Week – DEMOITIS by Alexa Melo

Cover of Alexa Melo's 90's inspired rock album DemoitisI’ve been following auteur Alexa Melo since she dropped her amazing cover of Marilyn Manson’s The Beautiful People back in 2015. Her latest full length is a fantastic trip into the musical world of her 90s influences, from Marilyn Manson to Mazzy Star, from PJ Harvey to Gwen Stefani.

Melo wrote, performed, and engineered this excellent album herself, and man does it deserve to get noticed. Standout tracks: Man in the Window, Flightless Bird, Hopeful

Support her on Bandcamp, listen to her anywhere, share the love!
