Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Hunt for White Christ’ by Unleashed

Yeah, I know, another lyric video. I’m not a fan of the format, but when you have a song like “The Hunt for White Christ” by Unleashed, you can make an exception. I must’ve been really out of the loop, because the albums by old-school death metal bands are sounding awesome. “Sound” as in production wise. Unleashed’s sound is damn near perfect here, with deep … Continue reading Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Hunt for White Christ’ by Unleashed

Throwback Thursday: ‘New Millennium Cyanide Christ’ by Meshuggah

Meshuggah have been on the metal scene long enough where bands who were influenced by bands they influenced are on the scene. While they first rose to prominence in the mid-1990s, they’ve been around since 1987. “New Millennium Cyanide Christ,” from their 1998 album Chaosphere, gives you an idea what Meshuggah is all about. They have a distinct sound which is marked by its precision … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: ‘New Millennium Cyanide Christ’ by Meshuggah

Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Dirty’ by Sevendust

Sevendust is one of those bands you can almost identify right away. I think a lot of that is due to vocalist Lajon Witherspoon and drummer Morgan Rose who both have sounds that are uniquely their own. The two men have been part of the band since its formation in 1994 and along with Clint Lowery, Vinnie Hornsby and John Connolly have kept their sound … Continue reading Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Dirty’ by Sevendust

Throwback Thursday: ‘Gods of Second Chance’ by Metal Church

Today’s song is “Gods of Second Chance” by Metal Church. It’s from the 1993 album Hanging in the Balance. Metal Church has always been one of those bands that’s been in the peripheral of the metal world. I don’t understand why they never quite broke through to the main stream like many of their contemporaries. I guess it could be because they’re hard to pigeonhole. … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: ‘Gods of Second Chance’ by Metal Church

Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Soul on Fire’ by Loudness

Loudness has been around longer than many of the people reading this have been alive. The Japanese band formed in 1981 and has three out of four of its original members. “Soul on Fire” is from their newest album Rise to Glory. In it, they maintain their heavy sound that has made them a favorite of many and one of the biggest Japanese metal bands … Continue reading Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Soul on Fire’ by Loudness

Throwback Thursday: ‘Honey Bucket’ by Melvins

My god, can you get any heavier than the intro to “Honey Bucket” by Melvins? Holy crap, 25 years later and this song still sounds monstrous as it did then. Upon hearing this song, I had to go out and buy the album Houdini. Unfortunately, I bought it on tape and that meant it got lost during one of my several moves. One of these … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: ‘Honey Bucket’ by Melvins

Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Standardization’ by Napalm Death

Napalm Death are an institution to themselves. Unlike many bands, they’ve carried on years after all of the original members left. Starting as an extreme punk band and evolving into a brutal grindcore band, they’ve carved themselves an identity that’s totally unique to them. “Standardization” from their 2018 album┬áCoded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs, which is a compilation of tracks from sessions from previous albums. … Continue reading Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Standardization’ by Napalm Death

Throwback Thursday: ‘Nailed to the Gun’ by Fight

Back in the early 1990s, Rob Halford quit Judas Priest and formed his own band. There was a lot of discussion and fanfare on what he was going to do. Fight was what he did and they were introduced to the world at large with today’s featured song: “Nailed to the Gun.” It was a good move, the song kicked ass and thousands of metal … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: ‘Nailed to the Gun’ by Fight

Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Callow’ by Therapy?

I wouldn’t advise the video ‘Callow’ by Therapy? to people who have the heebie-jeebies about seeing bad things happen to finger nails. “Callow” is from the Northern Irish group’s album Cleave, which was released Sept. 21. This video, though, was released back in May. It’s a pretty fast number with rather dark lyrics, which seems to be something that Therapy? is good at. They’re a … Continue reading Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Callow’ by Therapy?

Throwback Thursday: ‘Autumn Twilight’ by Cathedral

With the Autumnal Equinox falling on Saturday the days will grow shorter and the nights longer. So, what better way to greet the new season with “Autumn Twilight” by Cathedral. “Autumn Twilight” is my favorite song off their 1992 EP Soul Sacrifice. This EP was released just months before their landmark album The Ethereal Mirror. Soul Sacrifice at only four songs leaves an impact on … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: ‘Autumn Twilight’ by Cathedral
