SLTM 2.0 Episode 21 – Danny Bridgewater leaves the scene

Necrot – BLOOD OFFERING- “Beneath” – tankcrimes.com – First listen/First Thoughts: not distracting like some black metal can be. Most bands or a few more than some, try to bludgeon you to death with drums going a thousand beats per or with low growled vocals. I like what Necrot is dishing out. Clean vocals, swaggering beat with all the heaviness you would want. “Layers of Darkness” has a nice loose blusey boogie to it. I think in “Rather Be Dead” he does say “Prostitute suffer your crime”, is this said from a point of revenge? Or maybe it’s of Murderous Self Righteousness? We also get the obligatory “Buhh Uhh” from the vocalist. It must be one of those things that signifies that your in a black metal or metal band. Kind of like that “Boowhoopp” sound my friends and I would make when we were out in the woods making our bmx trail. When this band gets a chuggin’ heat going like on “Beneath” I’m enjoying it but they tend to use that down fret riff too much. ALL OUT WAR– DYING GODS- “Servants to the Obsolete” – facebook.com/alloutwarunofficial- (released in 2015, they have since released GIVE US EXTINCTION in 2017) – There is a certain , not sure stigma is right, but lets use it, a stigma attributed to knowing a band and liking their music. We’ve reviewed and talked about All Out War here before. We enjoy their music. So fairly or not their current release will be judged against that. It’s not as unfair as hating or being luke warm on a band, but it does narrow your views a bit. Nobody, except maybe Hawk Harrelson, wants to be a homer. On “Nothing Left to Bleed” he says “you’re heroes have left you down”, which has an interesting juxtaposition of using the idea of Left instead of let. It changes it to instead of waiting for a hero, you should never believe in them in the first place. They will just leave you down, so that they can forever be worshipped. “Choking on Indifference” has a really good guitar solo, a cool drum break down and good lyrics. “Arise” steals a riff from “Let there be Rock” and that’s cool as shit with me, cause it’s a great riff. “You date raped Mother Nature” from “God is Dead” , wow. The song also has another really damn fine guitar solo. New Tongues– DARK LIGHT- “Beautification Project”...

SLTM 2.0 Episode 20

Punchline- LION- (Streaming review, no clip) – InVogue Records– store.invoguerecords.com – It’s because I’m old as fuck, and have been reviewing music for over 30 years that I can make these sweeping generational generalities: This is what the kids in Titanic Love Affair would write during their summer off while listening to The Monkees and thinking the Monkees had it almost right with their album HEAD. I would probably like this more if their youth, which pisses off everyone my age, wasn’t blocking my vision. It’s not that they can’t play or that some of their ideas are youthfully undershot. No, it’s the energy. I suppose its what happens when you get older. How dare they be okay with their energy and sincerity. I’ll give them another listen or two and see if my mind rebends itself to the early 90’s. PS- this is why I don’t like to review streaming music, the link has expired so my further listens could not be had. Also I hate to be tied down to the computer and like to download something to listen to it in different arena’s. That’s okay, I appreciate anyone who sends me stuff hear. Earth Witch – OUT OF THE SHALLOW- earthwitch.bandcamp.com -“Earth Witch” I had this dream when I was ten years old that I’ve never told anyone about. But now when I hear this release it brings it all flooding back. My mom and dad get divorced, and my mom remarries Danny Joe Brown from Molly Hatchet. We go on the road with the band touring the south during the summer. Playing every dirthole country fair and gathering in sight. I’m the youngest roadie and I’m so happy to be with my mom and Danny Joe, from Molly Hatchet. Also I’m not going school but I’m learning life lessons while hanging out with a popular rock band. It’s beautiful in its simplistic bombasity. This would be the sound track to our road journeys. Besides that let me just say that I love Earthwitch, and that I’ve known Nathan Landolt for a long time. I look forward to hearing the band in the future, hope they continue and am very sincere with sharing this dream from my childhood many many years ago. Oranssi Pazuzu– FARMAKOLOGINEN – songs from a splith with Candy Cane in 2010- oranssipazuzu.com – 20buckspin.com– “Unihamahakki”- new artwork and available as a stand alone on digital or 12 inch vinyl- very melodic.
