When Sammy Hagar stated he would be making an album with friends I had to wonder who would be featured. With Cabo Wabo and the party boy atmosphere the legendary rocker keeps around him we have to face that the dude has a lot of friends.
For an old school metal head such as myself New Wave Of British Heavy Metal is one of the most important movements to ever come along. They built on the foundation of Sabbath and Zeppelin with melodies, duel guitar attacks, and energy that was lacking for some that liked a heavier style of music.
I was sent Ministry’s latest album and wondered how after 13 albums Al Jourgensen could possibly give us something new in the world of Industrial Metal. To jump right into things on “From Beer to Eternity”, the first listen for me was quite shocking.
Hails metalheads! My name is Fang VonWrathenstein, vocalist for the unsigned band Lords of the Trident (http://www.LordsOfTheTrident.com). Every month or so, I’ll be handing out my sage advice to other unsigned bands on how to take their band from the garage to the next level.
I will admit the title is a little misleading in the fact that other than some Suicide Silence I listen to very little Screamo on my own. However I have a 13 year old daughter, and her friend is absolutely obsessed with “screamo” bands. Is screamo metal? She seems to think so. My opinion?
The featured video today is to my understanding the first professionally made video by the young band “Her Dying Regret.” I bring it forward for a couple of reasons. The first is I like the duel vocal attack on the track and the entire album flows much the same way.
