Ex Killswitch vocalist’s new band, “The Empire Shall Fall” release debut and free mp3

June 21, 2010

To be honest I didn’t really like them too much at first, but they’ve kind of begun to grow on me now. It’s a cool, almost dirty, rock like vibe they got going.

But anyhow, Jesse Leech of “Alive or Just Breathing” fame’s The Empire shall fall release their debut “Awaken” today. Check it out if the metalcore vibes featured above tickle your fancy.

You can also download for free their cover of At The Drive In’s “ArcArsenel” here. Also released today to celebrate the launch.

The new All Shall Perish drummer feels the same about Blast Beats as me

June 21, 2010

Without blasts you’ve just got rock…….and who likes rock?

Also glad to see him already being bullied like Chris was 😀

Be seeing them twice later this year, so I guess I’ll see if he can “bring the beef”!

Spawn of Bogle Round 2: A little introduction…

March 19, 2010

Meet the second of my benevolent children, NatureBoy.

Mr Bogle

Good evening RC Readers..

Well, for a start, I’m NatureBoy (make of it what you will, I do) and I’d like to try and get this off to an average, if not mediocre, start. Avoiding echoing Ptez’s wonderfully put sentiments as much as possible, I’m quite grateful for this opportunity to offload reviews, opinions, awful, awful jokes and large dosages of sarcasm to you lovely people (and no I haven’t started with that last one yet). Anyway, I’m a delightfully miserable bastard as I’m sure you’ll come to understand, but I do intend on giving this my best shot, so no doubt I’ll be in touch soon.

Cheers
NatureBoy

Muhammed Suicmez descends from mount Olympus, sevenstring forum collectively wets itself!

March 19, 2010

In an unexpected turn of events, guitarist/singer/death metal virtuoso/German Muhammed Suicmez of Necrophagist recently appeared on the forums at sevenstring.org, to allow people to ask questions of this god amoung men. The new album still isn’t finished, and even though it’s been 4 years since he started saying this, he’s still saying “It will be out when it’s finished”, despite the fact that tech metal nerds such as myself have been collectively holding our breaths since Necrophagist’s last album, all the way back in 2004. Anyway, check it out, and find out about nerdy things like amps and pickups. Some choice quotes included:

punch-ins are ok, anyone telling you the opposite is not telling the truth or is the next paganini.”

“we want to move away from the idea of charging for knowledge”

“each song has materialized anywhere between 50% and 100%, which makes for an estimated average of 75%”

I ❤ Germans…..

New Faces, Old Haters

March 19, 2010

Just a quick update to firstly say ‘dammit we haven’t posted all week’ and to assure you that there will a mass publish today so do make sure to check the ‘Recent Posts’ feed. Providing technology works the interviews with Alex Wade (of Whitechapel) and Mark Hunter (Chimaira) will be up some time this evening… watch this space. Also coming will be various reviews both live and records and probably some random shit thrown in for good measure, today shall be epic.

Now the main point of this post, that is to let you know that there will be a few new faces (well not all new to us but to you) appearing on RC, whilst the core team will still consist of myself, Eyelicker and IronEagle you will be in receipt of a welcome break (well maybe) from our general rantings and tastes so obscure that generally no one likes the band’s we do. In other words, things will actually be something nearer (though not sure how much nearer) diversity. They’ll be around soon to introduce themselves so (to avoid using the same cliché twice in one post) wait and see…

Release Reminder : Foreigner “Can’t Slow Down”

March 1, 2010

Released today – Our summary was:

All in all; a very repayable and instantly classic Foreigner album…  If you like the band, you won’t be disappointed and if you haven’t tried them, it won’t put you off and will probably make you wanna listen to more…  Think Journey and Kansa and bands like that; if that’s you (which it is me) buy it. 9/10
