Wreckommendation!!! CHELSEA WOLFE

This week we tone down the guitars, slow down the percussion and tell the mad vocalist to take a hike and replace them with incredibly talented singer/guitarist/song writer Chelsea Wolfe. Her style may not be exactly “metal” but she has this goth/doom presence about her and the music she puts out is unlike anything else that I listen to. Her voice is simply, beautiful. It’s gives you goosebumps, it makes you feel the music and if you are like KeepItWolfSon, it makes you fall in love over and over.

Enjoy Chelsea Wolfe. Grab a cup of coffee, smoke a bowl and kick the fuck back. Grab a loved one and dance around. Feel the music…it’s very unique. Visit her Facebook and Twitter for updates, news and random shit. Also, visit her official site!

Album Review! Abigail Williams – Becoming

I never paid attention to Abigail Williams, because like an asshole, I thought with a band name like that, they were just another one of these awful metalcore/deathcore bands that blended in with the rest of the crowd. However, when I discovered they were a band who performs black metal, it definitely got my attention. Well, Abigail Williams proves once again, never judge a book by it’s cover because Becoming is an amazing work of art. Blending what you would like from acts such as Agalloch and Wolves In The Throne Room and making it their own unique sound. It’s very dark, atmospheric and moody. Slow paced music and venomous screams reign down on you as well as very melodic riffs and creative song writing. Becoming is true to what you would want from a black metal band, sinister vocals and ominous guitar riffs. It’s also very promising in terms of what you can expect from a post-black/ambient black metal band, very atmospheric and pulls you into a state of mind that is very hard to describe. Ah, genre labeling…what a waste of time right? You get my point.

Fretboard Friday on a Saturday morning! BLOTTED SCIENCE & SCALE THE SUMMIT

Here is the great track “Cretaceous Chasm” played by Ron Jarzombek from Blotted Science entirely with some awesome information on how systematically this track is played.

Next up are the gentlemen from Scale The Summit playing their track “The Levitated“.

Crosses ††† release their latest track: Prurien†

Crosses finally releases their latest track Prurien† after many many teases with their “stem” tracks. Prurien† is actually way better than those other tracks that people were putting together on bandcamp, thank god. That sure teaches me for not being patient! Well the track features some amazing vocal work from Chino and yet more calming soothing shit from Shaun. The drums during the chorus adds a little kick to the otherwise “stranded in the ocean” vibe from the rest of the song.

Frankly, I love it. Shocker right? It’s funny how Cannibal Corpse and Crosses can release new shit on the same date and even though they are polar opposites, I love em both. I cannot wait to hear the new EP that Crosses will be releasing on the 24th.

SOL INVICTO: Preview The “Initium II” Album

This preview track is great. The drum beats hold it down strong and guitar work adds a little character to the mix. The combination of the two gives the listener some good vibes. It’s like a rough mix of funk groove rock and tribal drum work at times. It feels very ambient yet with some structure and I’m digging it. I can’t wait to listen to the album in full. Check out the preview track here.

Saturday Morning Soundtrack – Final Fantasy VII

An amazing game with an amazing soundtrack. Final Fantasy VII was my gateway drug into the new age of RPG’s. Compelling story, characters, visuals and soundtrack really pulled the player into the game. I’ve made up a playlist to share with you all instead of spamming my blog with 7+ videos. Enjoy.
