Featured Artist: Corrupt Moral Altar

I was wandering the vastness that is the internet looking for news to report to you all when I stumbled upon this stream over at Metalsucks.

The band is Corrupt Moral Altar and if you’re into grind with a little sludginess to it then I think their latest effort Mechanical Tides will be to your satisfaction, check it out below. The band released the album last month through Season Of Mist and if you like what you hear you can purchase it through Season Of Mist at this location or, if you’re not about that life, here.

Today in rock/metal history…

Thrash metal pioneers Metallica released their epic 1988 album, …And Justice For All. It was a very progressive album for the Bay Area thrasher, featuring more complex song structures and unusual time signatures throughout. It was also the band’s first record with new bassist Jason Newsted who replaced Cliff Burton after he passed away while on tour supporting Master Of Puppets in a bus accident.

Happy Birthday Dimebag

Today would have been Pantera/Damageplan guitarist Dimebag Darrell’s 48th birthday and many of today’s names in metal took to Twitter to wish him a happy birthday. Below you will find a Pantera playlist and some of the tweets to commemorate the legendary guitarist. RIP brother Dime! Getcha’ pull!

Upon A Burning Body stream new album

Upon A Burning Body will be dropping their third studio album The World Is My Enemy Now this coming Tuesday (Aug. 12th). To help you decide whether you will be giving them your money the album is now streaming in full (stream after the jump).

The record will be out through Sumerian Records and features guest appearances from Trivium’s Matt Heafy (“Blood, Sweat And Tears”) and The Word Alive’s Tyler “Telle” Smith (“I’ve Earned My Time”).

Pro Shot footage from Wacken Open Air

Personally, I’m not a big fan of live footage or live albums, I’m more of a “I’d rather be there” kind of guy. But I know that many do enjoy live footage for whatever reason. So here is a playlist made up of full sets at Wacken from Kreator, The Devin Townsend Project, Amon Amarth, Emperor, Motörhead, Apocalyptica, Children of Bodom, Carcass, Saxon, Hammerfall, Steel Panther, and Slayer. It’s really sweet footage of the show so if this is up your ally, check it out.

            Mayhem Festival 2014

            In honor of the Mayhem Festival I welcome you to our first playlist post! This is going to become a regular thing done here for fans to have some mixes to listen to at work (if appropriate, because many of these wouldn’t be playing in a doctor’s office or something), work out to, discover new bands, rediscover old favorites, as well as for just general enjoyment. I will also begin sharing more videos on the Facebook page as kind of a radio thing and to feature some really cool tracks by bands old and new.

            I mentioned the Mayhem Festival at the beginning of the post because this is a Mayhem Playlist featuring all the bands on the roster for the tour this year. It is also because I will be attending the concert this week where I will be taking pictures to begin gallery posts to share concert pictures with you all. I’ll be posting to Twitter here and there to share pictures during the show and such. Anyway, enjoy the playlist, see you when I get back!

            PS – The website won’t be very active for the next few days because the concert is part of a vacation I’m taking before going back to school/(real)work. However, as soon as the vacation is done I will get back to posting. Posts might be a little more spread since I will need to make some time for photo editing but I’ll do my best. I’m still working on balancing this out to be more effective at it. Thank you for the support!
