If you don't know of the experimental band maudlin of the Well, they get responses like this:
eric: It's all I hoped & more. The more part being a glimpse at the inside of that window & the Clover Garland doors. Dd doors.
This band (yes, entire band) is truly one of the greatest projects ever to exist. Someone please prove me wrong.
Strapping Young Chad: YES YES YESSS! thank you guys! it's a freakin masterpiece!!!
DEIVIDDO!: The new album is a musical orgasm if I've ever had one… gives me reason to keep going… especially the grooves, the guitar solos, toby's singing… damn EVERYTHING! THANK YOU ALL SOOOOOO MUCH TO ANYONE WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE!!!!
"Part the Second" is… awesome!
I can't believe it!
wow! I'm really impress…
I can't review Part The Second because I'm just not that good at doing reviews, but I can promise it will rule. I also promise that if you don't like it, you will not hate someone. I can promise that because it is free and available for download in various versions here. About a year ago, Toby Driver [maudlin of the Well, Kayo Dot] wrote in a blog, "I wonder if we could somehow have a community-funded motW record – funded by donations from fans and then released for free online."
And, viola! With the aid of fans, including the "generous" Etienne Dube, a maudlin of the Well album is available to anyone for free. If you too feel generous, you can donate and maybe fans can see a pressed version of Part The Second.
At the Metal Injection Blog Factory, we are all preparing for our road trip to Worcester for the annual NEW ENGLAND METAL AND HARDCORE FESTIVAL. And by preparing, I mean doing mediocre research to interview bands and downloading old school hip hop to blast at 3am to piss of Rob and Frank. Oh, and getting my car checked out to make sure we have a smooth ride (yes, I know that is what she said). So at about 2pm I went to the local Express Lube place down the street from me. After telling the dude who was checking my car that I was going on a long trip and just wanted to make sure everything was safe to go, he confesses that he's a HUGE Sabbath and Venom fan. So I let him in on the new Heaven and Hell album and charges me $0. I win. Now you can read all the news you have missed and catch up on who is releasing new tunes. Click away. Click away.
You can now pre-order the new Gwynbleidd album, "Nostalgia."
Landmine Marathon's Grace Perry blogged about bat wings and drunkenly telling off cab drivers.
Some Crust dude offered a metal history lesson last week. If you like or want to learn read this brief history of Sunn 0))).
Speaking of cool tour packages, every so often two tours are simultaneously traveling the U.S. And every not so often they cross the same city/venue on the same day. If you live in the Detroit area, you are one lucky metal head.
If you life in Philly or St. Paul you can meet Lamb of God.
Bodom's new setlist is as follows: 'Silent Night, Bodom Night', 'Hellhounds On My Trail', 'Living Dead Beat', 'Angels Don't Kill', 'COD / BBQ', 'In Your Face', 'Blooddrunk', 'Downfall'.
There is NO group therapy in this doc. NOCAREEVER! Sike. I can't not dig that they included Metallica's Moscow footage, but it does suck that there was barely a mention of the bassist situation. It goes from Burton to Newsted to Trujillo in a breathe, if that.
An Emmure rumor is posted on Lambgoat.
