Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Damned if You Do’ by Metal Church

Metal Church are approaching the end of their fourth decade of existence and what better way to mark it than with a new album. Sure, Damned If You Do will still be around a year shy of their 40th year of existence, but hey, you can’t wait around for anniversaries when it comes to the musical spark. Anyway, this is the video for “Damned if … Continue reading Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Damned if You Do’ by Metal Church

Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Empty Streets’ by In the Woods …

In the Woods … is described as a “psychedelic black metal band” on their Wikipedia entry. Whether I agree with that remains to be seen as they are new to me and I’ve only hear a handful of songs. So far, I’m not sure what separates “psychedelic black metal” from “black metal.” “Empty Streets” is from their upcoming album Cease the Day, which will be … Continue reading Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Empty Streets’ by In the Woods …

Sepulchral Sunday: ‘God Machine’ by VV & the Void

VV & the Void are a band that can fit under many different labels: Goth, dark wave or drone. Whatever you want to call them, they strike all the chord that all goth music should. “God Machine” is the video from their first album The Upper Room. It was released earlier this year on Cleopatra Records, which is known for its support of artists on … Continue reading Sepulchral Sunday: ‘God Machine’ by VV & the Void

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

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

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 Coded 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

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?

Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Mt. Skull’ by Pig Destroyer

Today’s Tuesday Tune at Noon is brought to you by Pig Destroyer. Their video for “Mt. Skull” shows what kind of whackiness can happen when pallbearers’ work goes awry. “Mt. Skull” is a song from their album Head Cage, which is being released this Friday, Sept. 7. by Relapse Records. The 12-track album is the sixth from the Virginian grindcore band, which formed in 1997, … Continue reading Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Mt. Skull’ by Pig Destroyer
