Embers and Revelations: Weapon (Calgary) (0:29-4:19)

Next week: HEAT!! (from Germany)
 
All Is Found...In Time: Neurosis (Oakland) New! (0:29-9:09)


(Legendary Neurosis comes out with another studio album, and even though I don't think anyone is going to be naming this album their favorite album from this band, it is still Neurosis, and you need to hear it)

 

(Graveyard had my #2 spot last year for best album, and I listened to it the most out of any other album (Hisingen Blues, if you don't have it, go get it, it is fantastic) Now their new album is as strong, I love them, they are soulful 70's rock that makes you groove) 
 
Goliath: Graveyard (Sweden) New! (10:24-13:09)

Aim for the Sun: Mother of God (Sweden) New! (31:58-36:51)

 

(Intense, progressive, very technical.  This band is not so obvious in their aggression though,  they make room for some more complexity)
 

Scarlet Rising: Eryn Non Dae (France) New! (37:12-42:30)

 

(Swedish style fuzzy rock groove from Portland, but with an awesome female vocalist)
 

Holy Grove: Holy Grove (Portland) (42:51-49:00)

This: Colour Haze (Germany) New! (15:18-17:27)

 

(Rorcal from Switzerland is epically dark somber landscape but not typical, this is a good one)

 

Világvége V: Rorcal (Geneva) New! (17:47-21:46)

 

(Super fun jamming stuff from New Zealanders Von Thundersvolt, just say that out loud, isn’t it great.  Since they have post-punk vocals, I am all over it and stuff)

 

Beyond Space: Von Thundersvolt (New Zealand) (22:41-27:53)

(Yellow Eyes is atypical black metal with diversity, this is a band that will become bigger, listen to them first)

I wanted to say thanks to Lower Forty-Eight for allowing me to use a clip of their song for the introduction to my show for almost 50 shows.  THANKS BROS!!
 
I also wanted to say thanks to the Mass for letting me steal a clip of their song to make a new introduction.  THANKS BROS!!!
 
This past weekend I went to see accoustic sets from Mike Scheidt from YOB and Scott Kelly from Neurosis.  Really enjoyed that, mellow and peaceful to my brain.

Saturday, November 17: Neurosis, YOB, Voivod (the Fox - buy tickets now)
