Mojo’s Pick of the Week – Mother by In This Moment

In This Moment - MotherIn a dark week in a dark time, I unexpectedly found light and renewal in the pure cathartic power and emotion of In This Moment‘s newest release, Mother. With amazingly powerful covers of songs like Fly Like an Eagle and We Will Rock You (feat. Lzzy Hale of Halestorm), as well as hair-raising originals like The In-Between, the latest from Maria Brink and crew is a must have.

While this gothic metal group is known for its mind blowing visuals and outrageous stage shows (I can attest!), make no mistake, the music stands on its own. Mother is out March 2020 and streaming everywhere. Go get levitated!

Mojo’s Pick of the Week – Acid Communion by Bone Church

Bone Church - Acid CommunionDirty, fuzzy guitars? Check.
Riffy Black Sabbath influence? Check.
Ballsy, in your face energy? Check.
Heavy blues groove? Check.

The sophomore album from Connecticut proto-metal rockers Bone Church checks all the 70s-influenced stoner rock boxes and takes them up a notch. Jack Rune’s wailing, bluesy vocals fit perfectly with the Zeppelin-Sabbath heavy grooves laid down by guitarists Dan Sefcik and Nick Firine, rounded out by the battery of bassist Pat Good and drummer Rob Sickinger. Good stuff, go get it!

Out on Ripple Music March 2020

Standout tracks: Heavy Heaven, Witch in the Cellar, Acid Communion

Mojo’s Pick of the Week – AMMA by Puta Volcano

Puta Volcano AmmaI can’t express how excited I am that those crazy groovy Greeks in Puta Volcano have delivered another syncopated, riff-heavy album of killer tracks with their latest release AMMA, out everywhere now. With their third solid release, Puta Volcano has planted its flag in the sand and saying ‘we are here, motherfuckers.’

The tighter-than-ever quartet has refined its sound from a raw, gritty energy into a restrained, slightly understated but confident power, more like muscles flexing and less like a punch to the face. The rhythm section of Bookies on bass and
Steve Stefanidistill on drums lays a heavy groove and Alex Pi’s guitars go from mean, tight riffs to warm fuzz shower with ease. Anna Papathanasiou’s powerful, husky vocals still raise the hair on the back of my neck. Fans of Tool will dig the latest from these rising stars.

Standout tracks: Venus Lullaby, Black Box
