Welcome to another edition of our Saturday morning mix tape. This week, we’ve got the great new Terminal Nation track, a surprising amount of brutal death metal from Chris, and I bust out one of my favorite sad boy jams. Take a listen below.
Welcome to another Saturday morning playlist. This week I’m subjecting you to ska punk (blame Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater) and blessing you with new Misery Signals, Ian has you covered with the Mrs. Piss debut, and for once I’m not the one throwing The Mountain Goats in here. Check it out under the cut.
Satan poked a hole in the top of hell and let some heat out this week. No complaints from me but I know plenty that haven’t been happy with seeing 90 degree marks this week. Two ways I recommend to combat this early warmth: stick around with us for all the new metal we have on tap this week, then watch Terrifier and Pyewacket. Back to back. I heard about these beauties, earlier in the week, from Necromaniacs Podcast which would be a solid third option to stay in the AC. Moving on, this week’s new metal starts with Texas based brutal death metallers Flesh Hoarder on their debut Homicidal Necrophile which grabbed my attention very quickly — depraved, horrific and an excellent debut. Next up is De Profundis who take a look at the impact of religion through the lens of their best and most progressive death metal thus far in their career on The Blinding Light of Faith. Skinless return with their sixth full length Savagery and after all this time, their brand of death metal brutality still hits extremely hard and leaves an indelible mark. Rounding out our top slots, The Death Wheelers offer up their brand of instrumental sleaze n’ roll on debut I Tread On Your Grave which as a fan of 70s ‘sploitation films and greasy rock n’ roll, this one has received tons of spins from me. Whether you’re enjoying the heat or not, there’s plenty more to explore below so hang around, kick your feet up and enjoy. Continue reading →
Remember the sleazy biker / horror (aka: bikesploitation) movies from the 70s that had some of the best soundtracks? Whether you do or have no idea what I’m talking about, you’re in luck — Canada’s The Death Wheelers will be releasing their debut full length, I Tread On Your Grave, this week via RidingEasy Records and it’s a picture perfect homage to this era and its aesthetic. Along the album’s eleven tracks the band weave a tale of a motorcycle club being wiped out by authorities then returning from the grave to exact revenge. And it all unfolds over some of the most raucous sleaze-n-roll jams around — not to mention successfully pulling this off as an instrumental band. From the album art to the song names to the sordid riffs contained, The Death Wheelers bust this genre wide open for a new look from new fans. Just ahead of the album’s release we had the chance to sit down with bassist Max ‘The Axe’ Tremblay to discuss the new album, the band’s tie in with bikesploitation and the ecstasy of being an instrumental band.
