REVIEW: Tyakrah - Wintergedanken

Nice guitar work.  Easy flowing black metal with thumbs up for superb listen-ability. Some I've heard complain about the vocals being mixed two low but I don't hear that at all. 

There's also lots of lead playing throughout, something lacking on too many dark metal albums overall. It's a limited release of 500 released in conjunction with Slaughterhouse Records here in US. Powerful, moody and deep, I'd give it higher ratings, yet there ARE a lot of bands like this out there. Which is a damned good thing, because there's a LOT of shit masquerading as music in more extreme forms of metal. U do need to look hard and long because labels seem to forget, or don't care about, reviews much these days. Great to hear something worth having and listening to.

7 out of 10.

Review: Pussycat_and_the_Dirty_Johnsons_-_Aint_No_Pussy

Rough, simple & bomabastic punk rock, scattered, chunked & covered. Sneering attitudes with "soft verges and hard urges" (Midnight Motorway) alongside declarative inspirations such as "One Of The Boys" (s/t) come in bombing run style with lead ups, explosions and then shell shock before it starts all over again. Some proofs at a spot here and there (Ain't No Pussy) make sure it is understood status quo will not be honored. Quite tribal at points (Userpetine) it's probably the looseness that draws you in. As good pussy is known to do. It ain't actin' though, it's bread n butter rock n roll, with a bit 'o extra butter to slide 'er right in. Aside from the sexist cliches, good loud n raw does tend to do well in your face on stage. Then too, much of it could be just getting away with it. The Dirty Johnsons do a lot of that, getting away with it, but like that other cliche does say, they ain't no pussy. Turn it up louder, give 'em hell!

Review: White Light Cemetery - Careful What You Wish For



Love this band.  They're smooth, mysterious, slightly dark n twisted, groove laden & masters of heavy riffing. What they lack in creativity, they make up in tenacity. This hard rock via the Sabbath vein, with a heavy dose of Zeppelin, though somehow the band have managed to skip the cliches everyone loves to point out and just go for it. A time or two in history, no matter the level of heavy or mimicry, this approach has worked out really well (anyone remember that first Kingdom Come album?).  I hear some Bad Company in there at times as well; someone has a deep record collection.  None of this a bad thing, as I said, when it is done right.  Careful What You Wish For seems to fit this narrative. In these days it's good to hear heavy blues, since long ago many of those old school bringers became something else entirely (Whitesnake anyone?).  WLC will always have an awaiting audience, hopefully they continue to put out the good stuff, and those ranks will swell. In some ways it's been a long time coming, or perhaps it is a generational thing. That these cats hail from Louisiana cannot be understated.  That place seems to have a thing for the voodoo, and this band does too. Their last tour early in the year was a good one, right now they are quiet, preparing a new assault.  May you be blessed when it hits 'cha!  Contact: https://twitter.com/Official_WLC

REVIEW: Manifesting Obscenity - Doppelganger



Finest of Grindcore with enough cast in metal undertones to gain some street cred. The wheeze of the swine master evolves with the blast beat into a sucking sound of bliss. From wrenching time signatures into parades of reduction, to one-off bass runs the clackety clack of the machine gun spells doom. The title cut is almost a relief, living up to it's name of virtuous illusion if not at times horrid excursion. As the album begins with what sounds somewhat like the sound of flies feasting on corpses on Desert Of Suffering, you are suddenly spun into the oblivion of A Reflection Of The Generality. Showcasing not only the pitiful state of your planet's reality yet too being a progressive view of a crumbling masterpiece on the edge of the void. Guitars burp along, then begin the start-stop march as the light fades to dark. It is fitting for a band called Manifesting Obscenity.

Frantic fight for coming to life ensues on Disappointment Of The Burieds, showing that the dead do indeed rise in the last days of this needless existence, before the remains of the past overtake the arrogant state of mankind, dealing justice for the mess it has made of this place. Usually you don't get lyric sheets w/ Grindcore, but you really don't need it, the good stuff transcends the need to know.  What is that?  Lead guitar on Fierce Bloodshed?  The HELL you say!! Me like geetaras. I LIKE IT WHEN THEY GRIND,  LOVE IT WHEN THEY JAM! Pure core on Intestinal Division; it is if someone is playing the fuck outta something, as the yawning pit opens to take you under. The song ends with that big sound of the fate of finality, giving death it's eternal soul. This sets up an almost Irreversible Feeling, that soon the nightmare could be over, you awake to a new sunrise, the world lives again. Yet is all, as the final song before the title cut says, just an Abruption, before the true end. You cannot escape your fate. 9 outta 10.

Review: Septic Flesh - Codex Omega



Around for well over 27 years now, Septic Flesh are legendary through their intense music and deep dark imagery. The new stuff retains the classic maddening driven intensity adding in enough creative nuance to be beyond relevant nearing top echelon among contemporary european thrash bands releasing new material. As a second generation death metal band, Septic Flesh were early during that wave, which defined the cutting edge back then and what is considered the founding genre of every thing darker today. Peering into the abyss of ground down damnation, Septic Flesh reach in and capture the torment of souls, eating their essence for breakfast.

After charting new places with opener Dante's Inferno, #2 on the list 3rd Testament exemplifies the band in full power, easily switching from blast beat to death grind. Portrait Of A  Headless man which follows is a bit symphonic with all the keys and strings, yet not nearly as bad as it reappears as an album closer later on. I thought I mighta even head a flute in there, but coulda been the band fuckin' w/ me. Subliminal is a forte of the band, as evidenced by the arabian modal undertones of Martyr. They are Greek so it's not a big stretch to reach into that culture nearby. A slower number, it expands giving the band a chance to show off some of their timing skills, settling into a classic metal groove while shifting gears between west coast early 80's and a middle eastern feel. As another middle tempo standout, Dark Arts makes a case for more symphonic passages under a roaring wall of melodic feedback.

Preferences are for the slash and burn take no prisoner numbers, say Faceless Queen, or the black leanings of religious hatred encrusted The Gospels Of Fear or the powerchord stomp of Trinity. Through the band show the skill of experience while crafting a somewhat fulfilling album. Even the soundtrack throwaway Dark Testament somehow seems ok. In smaller doses the marching band stuff mighta been better.  The album artwork is pretty cool, definitely. Replace some of the half-asses Codex Omega could have got close to an 8 or a 9, as is, I'd give it a 7.

Review: Ovarian Despoilment - Ustulate Monuments

Snot sucking grindcore wrapped around marching metal war anthems, OD is rarely forgiving. Lots of these bands fail to be musical above riffs they've lifted from some thrash bands 20-30 years old at this point. Not these motherfuckers! The sounds of pigs fucking can never be over-rated in this land of madness.  The very images the music brings are of insanity, torture, death, and Donald Trump tweeked out on a 24/7 twitter rampage. Yup, it's pretty awesome.

Review: Useless - Departure

Screeching upper mid-range production may be the hailing of many a black metal album, but it about ruins this one.  No bass and blown out frequencies before a non-existent upper end make a harsh listen.  Too bad, underneath sounds like it may have something. Seemingly there is something worth your time here. Making it unlistenable does not bring you to that conclusion.

Review: The Darts - The Cat's Meow

Lead off track to their album of fuzz worship the 2017 LP "Me.Ow" done up in video. Shows fun time with the girls and their Super 8's, kitty showin' and lyrics about "scratchin' at the back door in my mind".  Adding to the effect is the delivery of the organ and purring on the edge of growling. Smiles all around as the romp wanders on, the somewhat scathing mid range just right for the girls on this number. You however may have to turn it down for the sanity of your ears and neighbors.  Or maybe turn it way up, and fry their minds, as yours is already gone.  Just remember, it's all about a good time.

Final Equinox practice October 1st 1989


This is the last time Phibro and I played together as Equinox, October 1st 1989. We were auditioning bass players and recorded all the jams. The guy never showed up this night but Philbro and I worked on the music from a couple of new songs we had written the past month. Philbro told me at the end of this jam session that since we couldn't get a full time bass player he was going to play in No Control full time.

I generally don't post stuff like this but you can hear the mastery of Philbro's playing captured on a couple open room mics. You can feel his sense of time (it was immaculate) and his creativity since these were songs we'd only jammed on maybe 5 or 6 times total. The song in the middle is just a jam, we wrote new songs like that all the time.

I really miss Philbro. Yes you can hear here somewhat what a beast of a drummer he truly was, but moreso I miss my friend, and finding this tape the other night in the boxes and boxes of tapes I have from over 35 years jamming, kinda took me back, made me smile. Even though this was the very end of the band, literally.

Enjoy!

LAUGR: Remembering Chris Cornell

Remembering the music of Chris Cornell, on this Friday's LAUGR @ http://www.rockfest.org

Review: Playboy Manbaby

Not at all what you'll first think upon hearing the name.  Which is either one of the worst band names in rock n roll or one of the more brilliant.  The first jewel of theirs I got to tangle with was the single You Can Be A Facist Too b/w I'd like to meet your parents. First off singles which aren't on the latest albums is an ancient record label "trick" so that the singles sells more and the album can rest as it's own product not reliant purely upon the single. Today, it may or may not be even relative as to why, then again, today, who cares?

Plenty of humor in the spiel of Playboy Manbaby, and I guess really it has to be that way.  The single over all could be the bastard son of the Cure, PIL and maybe some gutter punk wretch from the streets.  Definitely not what you think by the pictures and name.  I'd say that's a good thing.  Pretty much the album is the same thing, except maybe rougher at spots, if that is possible.  I hear horns in there too, maybe there were on the single, just drowned out.  Anyways, they do better without their blaring, mostly. Last One Standing perhaps there they sound the ticket.

That's the thing about Playboy Manbaby, "mostly" they're an acquired taste preferable to shit, or eatin' roses.  But like w/ the Fascist single and a spot or two on the album, they hit it right, and it's like a discharge after a full night of drinking, almost a relief!  Honestly, Don't Let It Be as an album is probably great drinking music, the more you drink the better it'll sound, guaranteed!

REVIEW: Sarah Shook & The Disarmers - Sidelong


Shook & The Disarmers present a nice platter of traditional western style rock.  Much akin to the early Sun Records catalog, which generally can never be a bad thing.  Here it's definitely an asset, yet Sidelong as a whole isn't reliant upon anything of the past.  It's good music, with more than a splash of heavy heart and real world experience showing through to make you sit back and take notice a time or two. Shook's voice is key to this show, though the band, taken to be The Disarmers, make the picture more complete.  The guitar work is especially impressive, gliding in and out, weaving I think Keith Richards calls it, serving up mournful cries and piercing lead breaks when called for. A full package it all makes, along with great songs containing memorable melodies, it feels like a work complete. It's but a tease though at this point.

It should make you hungry for more, a yearning to feel that edge, slightly wicked, of riding that fast horse across the desert.  Gold in your saddle bags, gold bud rolled, and a trail of dust along your trail far behind. When you do slow down and get all touchy feely, it tends to lose it's way, because you're driving a machine, one that seems to run the best when it's locked stepped into the clakca-clacka or one step behind the down home boogie. Like when you go to the family reunion tore up and everyone is staring at you.  You may wanna hide, you may wanna put on a show.  It's like that on Sidelong.  At each turn it's a different number, from platin' to harvestin' to fetishes up topside, it's irish whiskey on a weekend night, and there never is a work week.  Just cocktails on the lawn, another day of guitars, rhythms and wasted sunsets.  It's real life man, live it!

REVIEW: Cory Branan - Adios

Cory Branan - Adios

Strong features with a weather front blowing in cool and scripted from somewhere in Americana. There's horns, even Hornsby flavored keys, strumming and an almost Leon Russell thing every so often. Maybe a nod to Springsteen more so though, like you're riding into town on memories and regrets. This is highly apparent on numbers like Blacksburg, which is playbook history all the way.  I get off more on up steppers like the album opening I Only Know, or the traditional rave ups like Yeah, So What. Lots folks like nostalgia though, so the inward looking stuff cannot always be overlooked or hidden in the powerchords. It really are the songs which carry Branan along, which is no more apparent than on The Vow.  Something almost everyone can relate to, even if you've never known it as part of your life.

That's where good songwriters can get you.  While not everyone can produce the most original material, a large quantity of cool to killer songs builds a catalog up nicely. Cory Branan has this quality on his 4th album, and manages to advance his craft a bit by branching out on the more esoteric, bluesy Walls, MS. It's like the Dead man! Proof too you must be from or been a while in that great land of Mississippi to lock up this kinda funky groove. Why you think Elvis came from the state named for a river? Branan goes a bit Petty on Another Nightmare in America, still
it's ok , fitting into the real world today as it does. Cory decides to finish the album out on lighter fare, which may seem a cool down, but you've got Visiting Hours in there, which might make ya wanna dance, so it's not all downshifting coming down the mountain. Just check out the scenery, enjoy the ride.

REVIEW : Logan

Logan

No use going over the plot here, just know the glories of the past for the X-men have long passed and the ones left from the glory days are old, addled on drink and drug, sad and repentant if those daring doos of yesteryear are called upon from memory. Wolverine, Logan as we all know, would rather not even talk about it. nor get into the game again.  Ultimately, he has no choice.  He's no the same mutant he was years ago, he's aged well but slowly is losing what's left.  The world is a fucked up, low class beat up place.  This movie very much mirrors all our lives, and the state of the union.

The darkness in this movie is as thicker or moreso than any of the Xmen flicks or the two previous movies which focused mainly on Wolverine.  This series could have already ended, with this movie it gets another opportunity to bow out gracefully.  Like the past half dozen of titles in this series, it's a hit and miss, yet runs out of steam and stutters at points throughout.  It's not much better than the past movies, nor is it much worse.  Like most Hollywood fair now, it's repeats of repeats with different faces sometimes, different names sometimes, but names more than faces supposedly tying you into the series past.  In other words, it too, the franchise is getting old and thin.  Again, a mirror of reality.

Lucky for us all the movie doesn't go docile too often early on with the storyline remaining fairly easy to follow if a bit vague about all the how and when. As in all the Xmen movies young people are a central focus, so the dichotomy between the young girl who is the major focus of the pursuit here and all the old people and old systems breaking down, fit together nicely. All this back n forth happens pretty quickly so by the half way mark of the film the audience should be relaxed and deeply immersed into the story.  Maybe.  After the Mad Max style chase scenes and the high impact fight sequences the movie becomes tiring about the same mid-point. Injections of stilted humor and a meandering plot line expansion meant to indulge you seems to foster boredom mostly.  By the time he action returns 3/4ths of the way in and the movie seems to be going somewhere, it suffers a letdown climax and a drawn out ending.  It's all just a bit too long in the tooth.


Score 6 out of 10

REVIEW: Kong - Skull Island

Kong - Skull Island

By making the timeline of this movie back in the early 70's allows the movie to spin around retro to make familiar assimilation for both young and old.  The addition of a seriously slimmed down John Goodman and still ghettoized Samuel Jackson furthers the movie into yesterday. There's even a headband ala Loverboy, Rambo or The Karate Kid on one of the main actors once folks get onto the island.  Even there we're reminded of movies about Vietnam, say those they made 30-35 years ago.  Not all this is bad, in fact a time or two retro style effects are added along with todays modern generational CGI; you have the spider amongst the bamboo which is pure camp and robot puppets, not long before definite modern material such as when Kong eats octopus, which scene is part of the modernizing showing at spots along the way.  Sushi anyone?

I'm not going to get in the moral issues and lessons learned here in the movie.  They are thinly veiled with the reality of today's environment collapsing merely a by-gone result of all things mankind, greedy, and evil. So we find people all through the movie trying to get a piece of Kong's Skull Island. Not so much King himself as in King Kong movies past, more for the island and the resources it offers. They don't capture and remove the great King Kong, as in every one of these movies past. Here too of course is the pretty maiden, whom again Kong falls for, yet it's barely a blimp in the movie, more like a casual nod, until the final scenes, where it gets top billing for a minute or two. The action is fairly balanced and copious throughout.  Unlike, say the last Godzilla which had the monster in less than a third of the movie.  Every 10-15 minutes there are dinosaur like beasts fighting it out or imperiling the humans through the entire movie. The modern CGI really scores here and despite the drawn out plot and thin cohesiveness, and lack of depth inherit in the film, it manages to keep the kids and the adults interested till the very end.

Score 7 of 10.

Review: Kreator - The Gods Of Violence

Kreator - The Gods Of Violence
from the forthcoming Issue 62 of The Underground Sound
http://undergroundrecords.org/sound

A band which has stood the test of time, Kreator have went through a few phases, but who doesn't working almost 35 years straight. Since the beginning the band has retained an edge to their sound while maybe being better or less so depending on the occurrence. The Gods Of Violence is no difference, yet I will say perhaps better. It is good, again after all this time, to hear a band retain their original context and expand the offering through quality of the songs.

What I like about the album, is that it starts off cool with Death Becomes My Light, and builds through Apocalyption into something technical and strong with World War Now.  Then it's true old school with Satan Is Real. A time or two throughout again they play devil's advocate, but it's not over done.  That's why Kreator have always been considered a trash band, and not death metal.  They do stand strong for metal, listen to the rebellion bubbling under the core on Totalitarian Terror.  In the days of the gifted golden haired one, we must all stand strong!

Take Hail To The Hordes, a classic metal shout out with hints of folk yearnings placed skillfully within. Again so much we have heard, yet it is done well here repeatedly. Giving us tastes of their classic sound, adding a few new classics and keeping it thrashing metal keeps it solid for Kreator. Such is the remembrance of Fallen Brother and the speeding true metal of album closer Side By Side. The Gods Of Violence have come to play! Horns up!

Psychedelic fuzzed up dark punk pop eased into your mind by the fact is it's all chicks.  Not that matters these days, but believe me, it does.  There's that crazy circus sound going on throughout the tracks here, which might temp you to place them wrongly, but it kinda reminds me of the first couple of Stooges records.  However it's purely english containing those lovelies all roughed up and ready here.  The rudeness, volume and not all that togetherness displayed here might not be revolutionary, but it's kinda a breath of fresh air just outside the steel mills. It's like that 4th or 5th pint after a day of full-on bullshit.  You start loosening up a bit and The Darts will make ya wanna dance.

It's worth noting The Darts owe a bit to former female farmers The Donnas and maybe some other more obscure set ups from other places. The go-go horror movie feel like your in a car gonna crash fuck it whatcha gonna do The Darts pretty much bring in on their own.  I'm telling you it's that crazy organ man.  I feel the need for danger! There's enough creepy guitar slinking around on numbers like Carry Me Home and I Wanna Get You Off that it feels kinda sexy. Enough dreariness, and strange rebuke, on pieces like You Got Me to remind me it may not all be alright.  Then there's big drums, shouting, screaming riffs and that fucking crazy organ again on Take What I Need that it's like being down in New Orleans where they work that voodoo and hand you the bill. Or maybe it's the power vibe of Ramblin On that does the trick. I kinda like it man, it's a wild ride and like I said it's all chicks, which makes it that much cooler. See, I told you it matters!

How many of you will die serving your masters?


"They reasoned that the War and economic growth were much more important than the possibility of illness or cancer for a segment of the population twenty to thirty years in the future."

"They" still think like that.......

Universal Income and the National Pension Program

Elon Musk thinks universal income is answer to automation taking human jobs - http://mashable.com/2016/11/05/elon-musk-universal-basic-income

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This can be achieved through a national pension program where the taxes and fees already collected on natural resources which goes straight into the G's pockets is rerouted and divided between all citizens of the nation....it's something like 2 billion $$ per day collected in the US on things like petroleum taxes, land usage permits, spectrum licenses and usage fees (everyone one of you who pays for telephony services pays this), taxes on water usage, timber taxes...none of that stuff the government owns but they regulate and collect money you are not allowed to have nor use, and the natural state is everyone's, not just the government's. The National Pension Program I wrote for the World Council does exactly this. Everyone gets money from things of the natural state only the government is allowed to get money from now. For the average person in the US this is close to $18,000 per year which can be put into a fund for each citizen and can be applied in various ways. Simply spending it will produce a perpetual economic engine. The government does not want you to be independent, it wants you to report to it, obey it, and pay it, so that it may control you easier. Not sure about Elon's plan, but he's a smart man.....
