RADIO MOSCOW Reveal Artwork & Debut Single off "New Beginnings", Add Fall US & UK Tour Dates




Southern Californian rock trio RADIO MOSCOW has just delivered the masters of its fifth studio album, “New Beginnings”, which is set for release via their new label home, Century Media Records, on September 29, 2017.

The album’s striking cover artwork was created by artist Courtney Cole and photographer Dana Trippe with lettering coming from Robin Gnista. “New Beginnings” was recorded at Lost Ark Studio in San Diego with Mike Butler, produced by the band’s own Parker Griggs and mastered by Mark Chalecki at Little Red Book Mastering.

As a sneak peek at what to expect, check out a video of a radio session take of the album’s first track, “New Beginning”: https://www.vuhaus.com/videos/radio-moscow-new-beginning

“New Beginnings”  Track Listing:
1. New Beginning (WATCH)
2. Deceiver
3. Woodrose Morning
4. Driftin'
5. No One Knows Where They've Been
6. Last to Know
7. New Skin
8. Pacing
9. Pick up the Pieces
10. Dreams

"New Beginnings" will be released as regular black and limited-edition colored LP+CD (including a poster designed by Robin Gnista) as well as on CD, and all digital/streaming platforms.

Right on time with the release of their new opus, the band has confirmed the “The Drifting Tour”, which will drown Europe from September 26 to October 31 in waves of fuzzy, hard rocking riffs and sweaty, cranked up blues!

Prior to that, RADIO MOSCOW will perform at several European festivals as well as head over to the UK for a mini tour in August with support coming from The Groundhogs. Furthermore, a US west coast tour has been recently added. Full dates can be found listed below.

Formed in 2003, the power trio led by Stratocaster genius Parker Griggs carved their own sonic niche fusing crunching, heavy Sabbath-style chords with fiery ‘Hendrixian’ solos and a raw intensity that is addictive and captivating. From the self-titled debut back in 2007, which was produced by Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, over to last year’s “Live! In California”, RADIO MOSCOW proved to be not just a cheap time machine but a direct descendant from the golden age of rock ‘n’ roll!

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM ANNOUNCE U.S. TOUR




"True to its name, Wolves In The Throne Room has always painted between the lines of barbaric and regal. For over a decade it has been this between-space that has driven WITTR's power; burning black-metal riffs communing with mystical folk and ambient music." - NPR


In preparation for their September 22nd release of Thrice Woven, Wolves in the Throne Room have announced an extensive U.S. tour shortly after the album’s street date.  Set to run from September 29th through October 25th with support from Pillorian, the tour will take the bands from coast to coast - check out the full routing listed below.

Look for Thrice Woven to be available September 22nd on Wolves in the Throne Room’s own label, Artemisia.  Additionally, check out the music video for “Born from the Serpent’s Eye” here.

Bandcamp Bonanza – Smoked Out



Scorching fires out west have been dominating the landscape, filling the air with smoke and ash in the last month or so. Bandcamp has been ablaze for other reasons. Last round I featured some of the best of bandcamp mid-year recap. This round I’m going back to showing off some of the new finds that keep the year moving in a positive direction. At some point you’d think it would start slowing down, but the music just keeps releasing and it blows my mind every time. Check out the latest batch of Bandcamp Bonanza face melters.

Second Coming of Heavy – Chapter 6: Kayleth / Favequaid
Splits seem to be gaining traction as of late. Ripple has not only taken the special edition split vinyl to the next level, they have done it with class. Look at the art package that being featured on each chapter by Ghosttown Graphics. It’s just insane and to know that the splines will create an image when stacked together at the end of the 10 chapter saga, it begs for complete discography collectors to hop aboard. Each chapter features two up and coming heavy rocking bands. Chapter 6 is on fire.
Chapter 6 brings us another round of bands with their first appearance on Ripple. This is a perfect combination of atmospheric riffs and high octane rock songs. Kayleth bring the expansive grooves straight from outer space while Favequaid deliver us an undisputed punky grit layered with tasty chops. It seems each Chapter brings a new favorite. The saga gets better and better and the artwork is intense. Cannot wait to receive my OBI vinyl edition and complete the entire set.Favorite track: Favequaid - Everytime.

Sun Rider – III
Another band with exquisite artwork in their catalog, Sun Rider bring a sludge stained stoner metal to the party with monster riffs and scarred vocal tones that combine to make a heavy blues album that comes out similar in output to the band HARK, but less progressive and more bluesy. Check out their entire discography and you’ll be considering hitting that buy button on the vinyl even though the shipping is insanely pricey.

Howling Giant – Black Hole, Space Wizard: Part 2
Now here is a band to keep your eyes on. These dudes from Nashville know how to write a great song and keep it accessible with a wide range of polish, but they also know how to maintain a heavy ass energy. I just can’t say enough good things. Each release that comes out of these guys brains is a new favorite. Part 2 is intense.
Howling Giant return with Part 2 of the BHSW saga launching rocket fueled riffs beyond the atmospheric boundary of standard hard rock fare. Astronautical fuzz echoes over metallic solos as the progressive harmonies consume by way of gravitational force. Part 2 is a gorgeous and monolithic slab of stoner metal that'll have you begging for more. Keep your eyes on these guys. They're going places.

The Last Coyote – Gunfighter Tales
I found these guys using the method of checking the bandcamp new section by genre, and randomly stumbled over these guys.
This is the kind of music I yearn for. Sifting through the bandcamp vaults today The Last Coyote makes its presence known. Gun smoking melodies crackle with bluesy strums and outlaw wales across the western prairie like a flaming ring of mountain fire.

Between the Lines – Between the Lines
This is refreshing and suffocating at the same time. There were parts that had that 15 years old nostalgia going on, yet it stands out in the field of hard rock.
The bass slaps like a sack of balls against a kilted thigh as the dark, brooding groove hymns Between the Lines of crunchy distorted rock and goth enhanced grunge. For fans of Tool and freaks alike, this debut will steamroll your expectations of an Irish rock band.

Hair of the Dog – This World Turns
Last but certainly not least Hair of the Dog came out with a new album this year. I am a huge fan of this band which required that I pre-order the vinyl to go with the first two albums I scrounged together last year. Pretty stoked on this new one, it gets better every time you play it and I find it ranking high on many year-end lists’
Hair of the Dog is the type of band you can play in the morning to ease the bangover from witnessing their show the night before. This World Turns exemplifies all that is heavy rock taking the band to future cult classic status and showing no signs of losing hide. The melodies echo lean distorted glory with progressive riffs, bar worthy balladry and intricate snarls of rock and roll fury. Can't deny this as one of the best hard rock albums of 2017. Vinyl ordered. Just look at those colors on the cover. This is the full package. Favorite track: This World Turns. 

That ought to keep you busy for a bit. I’ve got more on deck for future Bonanza Bonanza features and it shows no signs of slowing down. Let it burn!

Comments IX Williams, "This band, for better or worse, has endured a mind-numbing and brain-expanding thirty years of making some of the most criminally riff filled and abhorrent sounds ever heard on the planet earth. No middle ground; EYEHATEGOD is either wonderfully loved or instinctively hated. Predicting the future accidentally and preaching the end time message, see the band LIVE now before something else bad happens..."

EYEHATEGOD continues to deafen the masses in support of their self-titled LP which dropped in 2014 via Housecore Records, breaking the band's decade-and-a-half gap since their prior full-length and marking the most successful release of the band's storied history. Consequence Of Sound called the record, "...their most entertaining release since 1996's Dopesick... urgent and raw, as if the band hasn't aged a day," Pitchfork gushed, "they've come out swinging, armed with yet another of their often-renewed leases on life and still spoiling for a fight. That EyeHateGod exists at all is a miracle in and of itself, but the fact that it is so damn great is simply extraordinary." Added Metal Injection, "in terms of consistency and sheer 'fuck yeah!'-ness. this is right up there in that first tier of must have EYEHATEGOD platters. Welcome back, boys. You earned it."

In related news, EYEHATEGOD's Take As Needed For Pain full-length (1993) recently earned the #92 spot on Rolling Stone Magazine's 100 Greatest Metal Albums Of All Time list, the esteemed publication noting, "Standouts, such as 'Blank' and the title track hammer the listener with turbulent riffs before downshifting into heaving swing rhythms that drive home the band's fluency in the funkier aspects of NOLA's musical culture. 'Sister Fucker (Pt. 1),' meanwhile, marries vile imagery with hip-shaking boogie rock. The band found the perfect foil in engineer Robinson Mills, whose warm, no-frills tones complemented Williams' acrid screech, the menacing swells of feedback on tracks like "30$ Bag" and unsettling police-scanner-inspired noise piece 'Disturbance.' While bands such as Crowbar and the Southern supergroup Down (which features EYEHATEGOD guitarist Jimmy Bower behind the drums) would also serve as able ambassadors for New Orleans metal, none of them would capture the city's seedy rebel spirit quite as effectively as EYEHATEGOD did here."

The band will be celebrating their thirtieth anniversary next year. Stay tuned for special releases to be announced in the future. In the meantime, orders for EyeHateGod in North America can be placed via Housecore Records HERE. Additionally, the official For The Sick Benefit poster and benefit T-shirt are still available for purchase at Indie Merch HERE.

Night announces new album Raft of the World


SPOTIFY   II   DEEZER   II   ITUNES   II   MUSIC VIDEO   II   ORDER LP/CD



September 1st marks the release date of Night's third full length album "Raft of the World" which will be released through The Sign Records. The album consists of 9 ravishing rock hymns forged together by the band during the fall of '16, and signifies a musical progression of the band towards a more rock-based sound - without leaving their trademarked sharp edged NWOBHM attitude. With a modern take on classic rock 'n' roll combined with more sinister lyrical themes, this album invites the listener on an increasingly organic and diverse journey compared to its predecessors. "Raft of the World" was recorded, produced and mixed by Ola Ersfjord (Tribulation, Dead Lord, Lizzies, Honeymoon Disease) with additional recordings (drums & bass) by Linus Lundgren at Studio Ganymeden in their hometown Linköping. Ola Ersfjord contributed to a broader production and soundscape including instruments such as organs, acoustic guitars and percussion to name a few, which they consider has brought the album a unique sound that stands out in comparison to other contemporary rock bands. Mastering was done by Chris Common (The Mars Volta, Chelsea Wolfe, Mastodon) and the artwork is made by the talented artist Mattias Frisk (Ghost, Vanhelgd, Vampire, Trap Them).

Night is a quartet hailing from the plains of Östergötland, Sweden. They started out back in 2011 and have released two full length albums and two 7" singles followed by several tours and festival gigs (Muskelrock, Hell over Hammaburg, Headbangers open air, Metal frenzy) all over Europe. Known for their fierce and intense live performances, Night have built up a reputation as an entity to count on. Today the band consists of Oskar (vocals, electric guitar), Sammy (electric guitar), Joesph (electric bass guitar) and Dennis (battery).

"This album is a progression of the whole concept that is Night - both personally and musically. I felt a dire need to express myself on a more personal level, which hasn't really been a priority for me before we started to work on the new songs. Living in a world gone mad, constantly surrounded by people who's lifestyle is basically rooted in greed unfortunately brings out the worst in otherwise "good" people. It makes you think about what is actually important in life which also triggers the creative and philosophical flow that I really think has been manifested in the new songs."
- Oskar, Night

The album is released on CD & Vinyl.
