Man, I dunno if they’ll get a full hour when they open for Clutch on these shores, but this seems like a pretty decent precursor of things to come.
“I think they would see the band touring and we had a very solid touring fanbase and we would sell a consistent amount of records album to album. And I think the record label saw that and they’d get excited about that and they thought to themselves “Well surely this band can sell this many tickets and can sell 100,000 records. With any kind of help at all we can make this a gold band or even a platinum band.” It didn’t take them long to realize that it’s tough work to sell real music.”

Overheard at the bar at the Blood Ceremony gig the other night: “Dude, you know Fu Manchu? Blah blah blah stoner rock blah blah Kyuss … They’re playing Lee’s Palace March 15th, you should check it out.”
‘The Power’ will definitely be in my top ten for 2013, and if you love metal it should be in yours too.
This week, I thought I’d do some horn tooting and let you know what is coming up on Witchfinder Radio over the next little…
COC has a new album coming out and, as Gruesome Greg says, “this is some good shit!”
This dish is one spicy meatball, kicking of 2012 with a badda-boom-badda-bing!
Man, these guys have really nailed this style down. Anyone who digs Clutch, Bulletwolf, Orange Goblin’s more recent stuff, Diablo Red, COC, WCO, hell, KISS at their heaviest, or any of the fine bluesy psychedelic rarities previously unearthed by Ripple Music will wanna sink their teeth into this.
Ravens Creed is a truly great British metal band, and along with such bands as the Meads of Asphodel and Old Corpse Road, are really flying the flag for true, trend-free, British metal!
Mammons War is kick-ass Doom metal offering, combining elements from several genres; Dan “Fodde” Fondelius has done a fine job creating that. A very respectable and a pretty cool album to check out.
