Blackosh- RVOCHI VICHRY – First Review

Blackosh– RVOCHI VICHRY- from guitar player Petr Hosek original guitar player of Czech band Root and current member of Masters Hammer- 7 inch record- two tracks- Facebook.com/blackosh- eternal-death.com – two songs right? (ed.- yes only two). Or are there more? (ed.- no, like I said, only two. pay attention). I’m going to pass this release onto my friend Jerry “The Lap” and ask him to write a few words. Here goes “I’ve heard better croaking from a frog I stepped on last August in Minimal Park. Yes, its named Minimal park after Jeremy and Darcy Minimal.” Okay , now back to me your trusty reviewer. Jerry goes on for another five to ten minutes about how he saw two people humping in that park one time and that he thinks the lady was his old high school spanish teacher. I knew there was a reason why I don’t let him review music even though he bugs me every week. Here’s what I think of this release: I like “Kult Latrina” the best of the two. The first four minutes of the song is really good. It reminds me of this cult we had in our town when I was a kid. Actually there were two in town at the time. The Moonies, of course and the Church of the Perpetual Eye. The Perp Eye as we called it. They had their own hymnals and everything. See the whole deal started with this local band. Larry and the Beach Bums. It evolved into a cult with animal sacrifices, many lives ruined and some people ending up in jail. This release would have fit in with those hymnals. This band could have written for the Church. Is the Perp Eye coming back? We’ll...

Laces Out – S/T- Five song digital EP- First Review

Laces Out– S/T- five song digital EP- “fluid EP that takes influences from Nirvana, Fugazi, at the drive in and Jesus Lizard” from review of EP by Decibel- facebook.com/lacesouttheband – nefariousindustries.com – “Kritzingers Warnings” – on “Bugs” the singer makes a little stop in Cornell-town. I used to know this guy name Jerry Chidlith who went with this girl beth who used to date the lead singer from KRIST ALMIGHTY. I bring this up only so that you’ll know that I know people. I hope you think I’m a big man. I’m not out here on my own creating conflict hoping to improve my chance of being seen. I do like the low bass loose riff on the last song “Under...

Cold Stares- HEAD BENT- Music Review (First Take)

The Cold Stares– HEAD BENT– the title track of this disc included in the Monster Energy Yamaha Team Motorcross Video- thecoldstares.com – smallstone.com – “john” sounds like “Listen to the wind blow” to me. “Neighbor Blues” says “Don’t lay down with your neighbors wife”, which is good advice. At first I thought the advice was based on a moral conviction, turns out he’s just saying do it with someone else who lives on the other side of town. Harder to get caught. “Price to Pay” opens up like a late 80’s Motorhead song, but then when someone starts singing, you know its not Lemmy. I’m just disappointed but then I’d feel that way if anyone started singing. On “Stuck in a Rut” he says “stuck in a rut, must have lost my touch” and “Born under a bad sign on a rainy day”. Eleven songs are three too many. Not that the extra three songs, which ever ones they may be, are bad or don’t fit, it’s just that I always hope that bands will leave you wishing for more than over staying their welcome, and with eight or nine songs you hardly ever hit that point. What the Black Crowes would have sounded like if they hadn’t aped all of those 60’s soul and blues bands they loved so much. Cliches in the lyrics abound, such as “You take the right road, I’ll take the left . Meeting on the center line.” A plea for working together, natch. Oh wait, the last song is an obligatory noose around the neck song. Guess what? The guy was wrongfully hanged. Can you imagine. Be cool to hear about a person who was rightfully accused and hanged for his crimes, again and...

Witch Vomit- Poisoned Blood- First Review

Witch Vomit– Poisoned Blood– 20buckspin.com– Toilet Ov Hell had an exlusive stream at one time- This from their PR release “Mastered at 45 RPM for maximum mangling, and completed with eye-splattering cover art by Matt Stikker, Poisoned Blood is a necessary acquisition for diehard devotees to the works of Carnage, Autopsy, Demigod, Re-Animator (the movie), Cannibal Corpse, Crematory, Disgrace, and moonlight burials.” – Love it – witchvomit1.bandcamp.com – I’m glad this is only five songs. Not that its the band but I’ve heard a ton of Speedy Black Metal thrash lately. I’m just going to take a break from this one and move on, then come back for a clean listen. I wish the band had something to distinguish it from all the other ground and pound bands. I’m not hearing it. I thought maybe I was missing something with this one. Its standard fair black metal. With heavy growled vocals I can’t understand, and heavy fast beats. I re-read the first part of this review and thought that it needed another listen or two. It did, but only to confirm that this is solid metal but a bit on the well worn side of the...
