Burn the Priest, Lamb of God‘s alter ego release an album of covers, Legion: XX, on Friday 18 May to celebrate their 20th anniversary. They changed their name to prevent being assumed to be a black metal band.
If the following advance tracks are anything to go by (“Kerosene” originally by Big Black and “Inherit the Earth” by The Accused) this is going to be a fantastic album.
My only gripe so far is that their cover of “In the meantime” by Helmet will be as a 7″ B-side of “Inherit the earth”.
- Inherit The Earth (The Accused)
- Honey bucket (Melvins)
- Kerosene (Big Black)
- Kill yourself (S.O.D.)
- Against I (Bad Brains)
- Axis rot (Sliang Laos)
- Jesus built my hotrod (Ministry)
- One voice (Agnostic Front)
- Dine alone (Quicksand)
- We gotta know (Cro-Mags)
When I first started to properly get into metal back in 1986 there were four bands on my radar: Metallica, Slayer, Voivod and Celtic Frost.
Yesterday (11 April) Rob and Kirk from Metallica paid tribute to late Celtic Frost bassist Martin Eric Ain during their concert in Geneva, Switzerland by playing “Procreation of the Wicked” from Celtic Frost’s debut album Morbid Tales (1984).
I first saw Clutch supporting Motörhead in Glasgow years ago. I’ve been a fan ever since. They have a new album coming this year. This micro documentary shows a sneak peak into their recording process.
Canada’s Annihilator was among one of the first thrash band I got into back in the 1980s. I loved their first two albums, Alice in Hell (1989) and Never, Neverland (1990).
I’m delighted to see that their 16th album For The Demented (2017) will be released early next month, on Friday 3 November.
I kind of lost touch with Annihilator with 1994’s King of the Kill. This track certainly makes me want to check them out again and dig a little deeper into their now not inconsiderable back catalogue.
Triptykon, Thomas Gabriel’s musical home post-Celtic Frost is one powerful band.
Shatter, from the Shatter EP, is an amazing slab of heavy, experimental metal very much in the vein of Celtic Frost. I could (and have) listen to this track on repeat for hours.
This is one of my favourite music videos ever.
This is wonderful!
From the new Taylor Hawkins album ‘KOTA’.
