Tenacious D posted up this funny little video about the recent history of the band and how they came to reform and write a new record.
So I checked out the new 3 Inches of Blood album yesterday appropriately titled “Long Live Heavy Metal” and it’s just that, heavy fucking metal. With songs like Metal Woman, Leather Lord, Look Out & Die For Gold, you can rest assure that this album is just a pure headbangin’, beer drinkin, axe grinding good time. It’s been too long since I’ve jammed out on some 3IoB, I mean I completely missed out on 2009′s release of “Here Awaits Thy Doom“, my last sampling of 3IoB is Fire Up The Blades! Cam Pipes still has it man, his voice may be Judas Priest-ish but I think he rocks it perfectly without sounding like a cheap ripoff. The band rights solid metal music and I’m quite impressed so far as to what I am hearing. So grab your swords and shields! Long Live Heavy Metal is one epic quest and will be available March 26th through Century Media.
Look for the actual review next week. Until then, turn up the volume and headbang to this track.
Really cool video that shows the band working their normal jobs before they hit the stage and act like true rock stars. It’s not all about bitches and tour buses people. These guys work hard and have worked hard for over a decade.
Shitty quality but…here you go!
Some of the best Metallica ever being covered by some of the best musicians of the newer era of metal masters. Mastodon covering “Orion” and doing a damn fine job at it. Then we have Chimaira covering “Disposable Heroes“, which was one of my favorite ‘Tallica songs growing up. Horns up, heads moving. Enjoy the covers.
Thall. Cannot find tabs so either just enjoy the video or study the video and play along. Have a good weekend!!
Oh holy shit. Hour of Penance is so bad ass. This new shit from them is crazy. It’s like riding a tornado into a hurricane, these guys play some heavy death metal. Oh and their album is dropping soon. Sedition will be out March 27th through Prosthetic Records.
For now, get ready to get ear raped. Enjoy, Decimate The Ancestry Of The Only God!
Better late than never I guess, this morning I’m hearing Jeff Loomis’ track “Surrender” for the first time and I must say it’s a damn fine song. I can’t wait to listen to this album in full on April 10th! Long live heavy metal!!!!
I’ve barely heard of Battlecross‘ music before I saw them the other night. Feb 29th to be exact and they came from Michigan and filled in for Cerebral Bore and Fallujah on a very short notice. They got the call, packed their shit and hauled ass to Kansas City, MO and rocked the fucking place. I was impressed and I’m now a big fan of these guys! I’ll be seeing them live again with Origin, Cattle Decapitation, Aborted and Decrepit Birth in April! Hail the almighty force that is BATTLECROSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Review of their set will be up shortly.
God Forbid, a band I was heavily into around 2004-2005. Since then I really haven’t paid much attention to them, I lost interest. However, I’m very interested in this new album that they are about to release. They are now rocking some 7 string guitars and their sound is ultra heavy. The tone is obviously lower than classic God Forbid but I can definitely hear their own groove and style once again. I’m amped up for this new album! The song “Don’t Tell Me What to Dream” is a good one, check it out!
Equilibrium, out March 26th via Victory Records
