IRON LUNGS

Band:POLAR
Album:IRON LUNGS
Label:A Wolf At Your Door Records
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

For the members of POLAR, life in the band, life on stage & life in a van is all they want & know. It pushes them physically, financially & emotionally to the very edge of destruction. However, without POLAR they would not survive. POLAR is their iron lung. Since their formation in the quintessential English City of Guildford in 2009, POLAR have been on a merciless & devastating pursuit of as many unsuspecting audiences as possible. 2011 witnessed POLAR supporting such acts as Gallows, Trash Talk, This Is Hell, Feed The Rhino & TRC.

A little over a year since the release of their EP, POLAR are back with their debut album ‘Iron Lungs’  Recorded in January 2012 with Steve Sears & Tom Mitchener of Spy Catcher, ‘Iron Lungs’ is the fuel which will ignite any audience & any stereo leaving behind it a wake of exhausted exhilaration. Heavy & menacing melodies sustain the bands guttural & ferocious punk crash throughout. Vast hooks & rabble rousing gang vocals provide the key stone to the unrelenting onslaught, aswell as showcasing POLAR’s skilfulness & unwavering progression as musicians. Adam Woodford’s harrowing vocals paint a terrifying picture that will undoubtedly provide ammunition for audiences to launch back at the band with frenzied unity. 2012 has already seen POLAR come out swinging, starting the year as support for Young Guns on their Bare Bones tour of the UK playing to numerous sold out venues. Never content to merely sit back & relax, POLAR will be heading out this Spring on their first European Tour with Heart In Hand before returning to their old stomping ground on their May headline tour of the UK. ‘Iron Lungs’ is the sound of a band progressing & creating a devastatingly unique fusion of punk rock. POLAR’s debut album coupled with their tireless dedication to the road will leave many in need of an iron lung by the end of 2012. This is POLAR & this is ‘Iron Lungs’.

 

 

EMBRACING THE LIGHTLESS DEPTHS

Band:ALDEBARAN
Album:EMBRACING THE LIGHTLESS DEPTHS
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Along with the now defunct Asunder, Portland, Oregon’s ALDEBARAN have always been considered to be the West Coast’s most prominent funeral/death/doom metal band. The prolific unit began in 2004 and even though they have previously only had one full-length album under their repertoire, that band have developed a cult following surrounding the many splits (with such bands as Unearthly Trance and Zoroaster), EP’s, and compilations that bear their name.

ALEBARAN’s new album, “Embracing The Lightless Depths”, is their second full-length release and the direct follow-up to 2007’s “Dwellers In The Twilight” and follows last years one-song 30 minute EP “Buried Beneath Aeons”. The new album takes the band’s style of colossal funeral death doom to the highest point by creating a monolithic and monstrous album which unearths their strongest material to date.

For fans of Asunder, Thergothon, Skepticism, and Autopsy...

 

 

THE GOLEM

Band:BLACK FRANCIS
Album:THE GOLEM
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

"For those unfamiliar with the film The Golem: How He Came Into The World, the 1920 German Expressionist film tells the story of Rabbi Loew who attempted to protect his persecuted Jewish community in Prague by creating a giant warrior out of clay. The creature refuses, however, instead setting fire to the Jewish ghetto and rampaging throughout, until a little girl removes the sacred seal that gave it life. But, if that all sounds too baroque to match with Francis, don't be afraid. The soundtrack is more Western than classical, the twanging guitars often reminiscent of Neil Young's score for Dead Man. . .The project relishes the unexpected, shifting genre and instrumentation at the drop of a hat. . .Francis knocks out some serious, dramatic narrative here, a lot like his best Pixies days." -Consequence of Sound

"Black Francis sounds fully energized here, and this album ranks, alongside Teenager of the Year and Dog in the Sand, as part of his best solo work to date." -Tiny Mix Tapes

THE GOLEM - A FILM - DVD

Band:BLACK FRANCIS
Album:THE GOLEM - A FILM - DVD
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:DVD
Genre:Rock

The DVD of The Golem with the full score of the film written, performed and recorded by Black Francis. Often regarded as the height of German expressionism, the silent, black and white film The Golem was the last of a series of three films by director Paul Wegener and was released in 1920. Set in the 16th century, The Golem: How He Came Into The World tells the story of the persecution of the Jews of Prague. The highly expressionistic imagery seen in the film was captured by legendary cinematographer Karl Freund, who went on to do the classic Metropolis in 1927. Groundbreaking as it was, the film sat 'silent' for nearly 88 years until the San Francisco International Film Festival requested Black Francis score the film and perform it live for their annual film festival in April 2008.

WISH

Band:GERM
Album:WISH
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

GERM is the new solo project of Tim (Austere, Grey Waters, ex-Nazxul) and is everything fans of an emotive style of heavy music could have hoped for ! Germ was conceived by Tim as early as 2003. The idea behind Germ was to create something that not only combined the Atmospheric Black Metal and Rock, Tim has become known for with his love of Classical, Pop and Electronic styles of music, but to create an image and visual aspect to accompany the music. In 2006 a three song EP was recorded, but never released. One track from the EP, „Raving Mad With Sadness“, was uploaded to Myspace, and to this day gains considerable praise. This early song shows glimpses of what was to come, featuring an extended electronic breakdown and clean vocals mixed with Tims hellish shrieks. After this song appeared, things again fell silent. After almost 3 years of inactivity, where the focus was on other projects, Tim entered SLS studios in October 2009 to begin tracking for what was to become the debut full length Germ album. However, not long after, Tim was again focussing on other projects, this time composing Pop songs for various Major labels and producers, as well as working as a session drummer for various bands. Completion of the debut Germ album would have to wait. As of February 2011 Tim resumed work on the album, this time with the determination to see it through til the end. Tim`s continuing work as a composer and session musician have meant at times the progress has been slow, but finally the debut Germ album, „Wish“ is complete in the somber month of september 2011 and will see a release through Eisenwald in 2012.

 

 

MUNDUS NUMEN

Band:ESSENZ
Album:MUNDUS NUMEN
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

ESSENZ is a purposeful sonic ether, a decomposition of the physical that transcends the mind through floating acoustic elements. ESSENZ is the invocation of metamorphosis, a stimulation of remote realms of the psyche that dwells on the borders of musical extremes and opens the gate to a deeper leve. ESSENZ play Occult Metal. The concept of “Mundus Numen” is based on the painful acquisition of one's deepest will, which enables to transform the wolrd from an instance to a suggestible setting and implies a manic borderline experience.

DREAM SEEDS

Band:EXTRA LIFE
Album:DREAM SEEDS
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:AVANT/POST ROCK

Dream Seeds is the third full-length album by Brooklyn art-rock provocateurs Extra Life. Since 2008 Extra Life has challenged and seduced various underground scenes by fusing the obsessive intricacy of minimalist composition, the suicidal swoon of Morrissey, the epic strength of Metal and the solemn purity of Medieval chant. With a pedigree including Zs, Dirty Projectors and Dax Riggs, the band’s dark, dramatic sound, labeled by some as “Plague Pop”, has been called everything from “genius” to “pretentious” to “religious”.

 

 

THEN CAME THE AFTER

Band:SHELLEY SHORT
Album:THEN CAME THE AFTER
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:SINGER/SONGWRITER

’Then Came the After’ was recorded throughout 2010 and 2011 at Liophant Studios with Alexis Gideon and in Mike Coykendall’s Studio, both in Portland, Oregon. The songs reflect the emotions of the album title: the unknown, change, happiness and sadness of human relationships and the mystery of life. ‘Then Came the After’ was written and recorded with a fuller, brighter, and more live sound in mind than the previous album, ‘A Cave, A Canoo’. Though both albums share a depth of spirit, Shelley’s musician friends Rachel Blumberg, Nate Query, Mike Coykendall and Alexis Gideon helped bring a positive vibe to the new sound. The more complex sound of ‘Then Came the After’ experiments further with new genres and soundscapes. In songs such as “Plane” inspired by the melodic and meditative sounds of Pharaoh Sanders and Melanie, you can hear how the harp and piano of Alexis Gideon (Video Musics, White Hinterlands), upright bass of Nate Query (The Decemberists, Black Prairie) and drums of Rachel Blumberg (M Ward, The Decemberists) complete the ethereal yet grounded visual effects of the repetitive guitar and vocals, floating the song into the clouds to be carried by these talented musicians. Shelley was inspired for the sound of ‘Then Came the After’ by the work of Roger Miller, Loudon Wainwright 3rd, Roberta Flack, Melanie, Iris Murdoch, Joan Didion, Ron Davies, Jake Thackray, Kris Kristofferson, Nina Rota, Carson McCullers and Pharaoh Sanders.

 

 

DEAD AS A DODO

Band:JOY AS A TOY
Album:DEAD AS A DODO
Label:CHEAP SATANISM
Format:CD
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

Joy as A Toy is back with a new opus full of un-nice sentiments. Dead As A Dodo immortalizes this pretty crazy project presented during 29th Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. Joy As A Toy took the opportunity to use analogical synthetizers and samplers in order to play a repertoire which was freely inspired by 70's horror movies soundtracks. The album sounds as if it were the ideal soundtrack for an hallucinated nightmare, a psychedelic and angular trip as well as a snoring and stumbling B movie. In a few words, it is venomous, funny, grating and implacable.

“Joy as a Toy is an avant-pop blast from start to finish” PopMatters.com

SIDEWALKS TALKING

Band:HOLLINS AND STAR
Album:SIDEWALKS TALKING
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

I love this record. For me, it has a trace or two of Arthur Lee and Love at their best (‘Krishna Dov’ would not sound out of place on “Forever Changes,” for example), with dashes of maybe Terry Callier in some of the jazzier tunes. I also like that Hollins & Starr wrote a gentle tribute to one of my favorite old-time bluesmen, Mississippi John Hurt. At times this album is a gorgeous, ethereal blend of psychedelic folk and offbeat pop; but there are some funk and avant-garde moves too (where did those crazy orchestrations, wild guitar, and breakbeats on the fierce anti-war rave-up ‘Hard Headed Woman’ come from?), all supported by an odd assortment of instruments, including flute, bells and a generous helping of fuzz guitar. Chicago-based duo Chuck Hollins and David Starr only made this one album, which originally appeared in 1970 on the Ovation label. All we know about them is what the original ads for the album said: “David Starr learned piano when he was three, began composing when he was four. At twenty-one he was playing flute with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Chuck Hollins picked up a guitar one day and just started playing.... by the time he left Northwestern with his Creative Writing degree he was turning his poetry into music.” Others have said: “Unique blend… with a lovely dreaming, drifting vibe” – Acid Archives; “Many diverse influences from pop-psych, mystical mellow passages, quasi-classical touches, delightful ethereal flute, trance-like vocals and fuzz guitar… there is much to appreciate on this largely undiscovered gem” –Fuzz, Acid & Flowers. Our deluxe mini-LP sleeve CD edition has four bonus tracks, including a “hidden track” with some rare sound effects plucked from the vaults. The CD version is limited to 1,000 copies.So, we state that the sole album by Chuck Hollins and Dave Starr, their only known recordings, is a treasure trove of strong melodies and dreamy vocal stylings—an album sure to appeal to fans of acid folk, popsike, and even those who like jazzy funk. Listening to it is a rich, rewarding experience. This is a perfectly produced and arranged record, an ode to the free mind, structured by intelligent considerations. And as another person has said, “No wonder it has been sampled by DJ Shadow.” Ovation said at the time of its release, “Classical artistry rock and sidewalk poetry.” All true. Very cool. Hip, mellow, and stoned.

 

 

THE SKY TURNS RED: COMPLETE ANTHOLOGY

Band:ROTOMAGUS
Album:THE SKY TURNS RED: COMPLETE ANTHOLOGY
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

There’s no way to know why CBS Records unceremoniously dumped Rotomagus and the Chico Magnetic Band after one single apiece; suffice to say that decision was a poor one, as both bands have (quite rightly) developed a cult-like following over the years. All in all, the artistic trajectory of Rotomagus was peculiar: they started out as a harmony pop-psych band, shifted through a brief Jimi Hendrix-ian interlude (‘The Sky Turns Red’), straight into a Vanilla Fudge groove; they then went down in flames as a hair-raising monolithic heavy rock power trio. On Julian Cope’s excellent Head Heritage web-site, the Seth Man raves about Rotomagus thus: “The first time I heard this track (‘Fighting Cock’), I did not freak out. I merely walked into a nearby closet and screamed my head off for a minute solid, beat the floor and ripped my t-shirt... then I cowered when it hit me: this thing came out in 1971? Before “Raw Power”?! I just lost my mind... The only thing that predates this monster in terms of being a full-on amassing of all things heavy are all the many key points on Sir Lord Baltimore’s “Kingdom Come” LP and THAT’S it, brother.” French magazine Rock & Folk was succinct: “Rotomagus create an emotional music, violent, even aggressive.” Violent. Aggressive. Intense. On this disc we bring you the entire output of Rotomagus, including an album-length demo from 1971, the band’s tumultuous, thunderous swansong, recorded as a super jam (live with no overdubs). Our Lion Productions and Martyrs of Pop edition of Rotomagus comes replete with a bi-lingual 32-page booklet, with the entirety of the Seth Man’s article on the band, plus the band’s history in both English and French, printed on FSC recycled, chlorine-free, 100% post-consumer fiber paper, manufactured using biogas energy. Hard to believe this is all pre-1971, as much of the demo is not just proto punk but proto hardcore—with enough fiery attitude to make you want to scream along. The vocals are wild, while the guitar riffs and grinds and approaches a Stooges via Motorhead apocalyptic grandeur. - Amazing!

BLACK SHEEP OF THE AMERICAN DREAM

Band:DEATH BY STEREO
Album:BLACK SHEEP OF THE AMERICAN DREAM
Label:CONCRETE JUNGLE
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

14 Years strong and still nothing can stop DEATH BY STEREO. Coming back harder, faster, and louder than they ever have, their sixth full-length studio album „Black Sheep Of The American Dream“ will be out on Concrete Jungle Records. „Black Sheep Of The American Dream“ offers up DEATH BY STEREO‘s return to their hardcore punk roots, interlaced with crushing metal breakdowns and blazing solos courtesy of the legendary party shredder, Dan Palmer. With this album, DEATH BY STEREO brought back original bassist and founding member, Paul Miner. In addition to lending his bass skills, Paul co-produced, co-wrote, engineered, mixed and mastered the album with the idea of taking the bands sound into a direction somewhere between „If Looks Could Kill“ and „Into the Valley of Death“. With several years of experience producing under Paul‘s belt working with some of the most recognized punk, hardcore and metal bands out there; such as TERROR, H2O, THRICE, ATREYU, this record sounds like a brick to the face. Reaching back to their first album „If Looks Could Kill, I‘d Watch You Die“ DEATH BY STEREO remains focused on the political, conscious, personal and confrontational. With this album lead singer Schulz is calling for the world to stand up and fight. The blistering „WTF Is Going On Around Here?“ attacks the right wing and calls for people of all nations, colors, and cultures to smash the system of control that holds us down while the eye-opening lyrics of „The 5th of July“ provides a stinging commentary on the July 5th murder of an innocent Fullerton, Ca man, Kelly Thomas, by police. Schulz says „The song takes issue with police brutality and the way the American justice system is designed for us to fail and for the powers that be to take control. No matter what the cost, even human life.“ Balancing chaos and consciousness is no easy task, and few bands will ever do it as well as DEATH BY STEREO. And somehow or another, the band does all this while completely out of their minds on Jägermeister. DEATH BY STEREO brings a conscious message with a no holds barred, uncompromising way of life that has become infamous. Death For Life!

Schulz says „The song takes issue with police brutality and the way the American justice system is designed for us to fail and for the powers that be to take control. No matter what the cost, even human life.“ Balancing chaos and consciousness is no easy task, and few bands will ever do it as well as DEATH BY STEREO.

LTD VINYL LP ! - For Fans Of SICK OF IT ALL, AGNOSTIC FRONT, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES and RISE AGAINST!

 

 

STORIES OF SURVIVAL - BONUS EDITION

Band:AUTHORITY ZERO
Album:STORIES OF SURVIVAL - BONUS EDITION
Label:CONCRETE JUNGLE
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Mesa, AZ based punk rock band AUTHORITY ZERO has managed to weather the storm of the music industry and endure living on the road away from friends and loved ones. Founded in the summer of 1994, the band has flourished for nearly two decades. Initially their goal was simple; create a sound that paid tribute to their punk rock forefathers, but not confined by the musical barriers that typically bound the genre together. For the release of their fourth studio album, „Stories of Survival“, AUTHORITY ZERO used their music as a conduit to convey not only the trials and tribulations the group has endured, but also the current economic difficulties faced across the globe. „The album title was a no brainer, as it encompasses everything this record stands for. This record has so much to do with survival, not only as a band, but as an individual living in a crazy world“ says Jason DeVore of AUTHORITY ZERO. The album begins with a sample of Winston Churchill „Blood, Sweat, Tears and Toil“ speech as the opening chords to „The New Pollution“ kick in and DeVore laments about the current state of corruption in the music industry. The band seamlessly shifts to reggae for the socio-political observations in „Big Bad World“ as the album runs the gamut of musical styles from driving punk rock to ska and reggae. AUTHORITY ZERO continues to forge their own path and cultivate a worldwide fan base of millions.

"Stories of Survival“ is going to be released in Europe for the first time via Concrete Jungle Records including 6 bonus tracks from the current live album "Less Rhythm More Booze“. 18 songs.

They are all traveling from different cities in Sweden to meet up and play on the island of Yxlan, Stockholm, pretty much all the time! With an attitude and a burning passion, they meet up to play and to dispose the frustration of waking up and wasting their time with routines and everyday jobs. This is the main factor for their inspiration, and the heart of their music; to break free from standard living and create a reality of their own which consists of music and pure energy. JOHN DUVA is band that you don't categorize, simply because of the variated impressions they use in their music and lyrics.

Think The Hives meets King Khan & The Shrines, combined with garage, punk & psych, and you might on your way of getting the picture!

As Slate magazine wrote, “Girlyman doesn’t wallow in such emotions; the band approaches them frankly, capturing, in a story or a surprising metaphor, a feeling you’ve had but never heard so well-expressed.” Mixed by Grammy Award winner Ben Wisch, Supernova features guest appearances by Indigo Girl Emily Saliers.

Last year at Comic Con in San Diego, SM announced a partnership with MTV that will further the development of the character and the world in which she dwells.

This release puts INDIAN’s long out of print and frantically sought after debut, The Unquiet Sky, back on the grid in a beautiful digipak format.

Band:KEHLVIN
Album:THE ORCHARD OF FORKING PATHS
Label:DIVISION
Format:CD
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

With this new album we find KEHLVIN giving birth to its most solid & devastating record so far. Taking distance with their previous love for long instrumental parts and reveling a major propensity to let distortion talk, the band explores a whole bunch of new directions through a more extreme riffing and a sense of melody unseen so far, all of this brilliantly displayed in savage songs. Still focused on high quality writing, KEHLVIN knows how to develop intriguing melodies without losing any dynamic. Powerful but sensible, THE ORCHARD OF FORKING PATHS is nothing less than a mind blowing new step in the band carrier, taking sludgin’prog-hardcore to the next level of beauty and intensity.

KLEZMER MONGRELS

Band:GEOFF BERNER
Album:KLEZMER MONGRELS
Label:9PM RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:SINGER/SONGWRITER

Geoff Berner's „Klezmer Mongrels“ album is probbaly his most convincing one. Again (possibly even more than the previous ones) it's a provocative go on the genre but never in a disrespectful way. „Klezmer Mongrels“ is in a way dealing with Klezmer-traditions in a positive way, but then again it's an album one can easily see in the tradition of big Canadian songwriters like Leonard Cohen. A timeless piece of great songwriting that has got everything to add new aspects to Klezmer music and make it interesting for people that probably never would buy a Klezmer record. Berner is political and sarcastic. He can be dismissive at times but that's good in the way he does it. And – most importantly – he's got the rare talent of writing/interpreting both heartbreaking songs and singalong-hooklines being witty and critical at the same time. This man has got something to say and it's definitely worth listening to what he's talking about. With „Klezmer Mongrels“ Geoff Berner has finally and definitely reached what he was aiming for: “I want to drag klezmer music kicking and screaming back into the bars. I want to make original klezmer music that’s drunk, dirty, political and passionate. As a Jew of eastern european descent, I feel I have a calling to make this music live, not just preserve it under glass like something in a museum.”

 

 

FARRAGO

Album:FARRAGO
Label:BESTE! UNTERHALTUNG
Format:CD
Genre:Instrumental

Seven years have passed since that BUDDY & THE HUDDLE their last regular album, "Monument for John Kaltenbrunner" published. Amazing when you consider that B & TH were active in all these years. Furthermore, the two with their very own sound that lies somewhere between the roots-heavy ingredients such as blues, folk and country on the one hand, and chamber music experimentation on the other. More song as the track is, lush instrumentation and still meager. The acoustic atmosphere captivates and calls for attention. Has come out - in a distinctly American backwater verortbare - Instrumental Music. Kammerpop. A musical genre picture.

 

 

HUMPPASH

Band:ELAKELAISET
Album:HUMPPASH
Label:NORDIC NOTES
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

ELÄKELÄISET - The Kings of Humppa Humppa versions of rock classics and lyrics dealing with life of thee lderly, heavy on the sarcasm. Eläkeläiset was started as a joke in the spring 1993. The idea was to play rock classics in humppa style. Over the years the joke has proved to be far reaching – Eläkeläiset has earned wide recognition with bold humppa style and released not less than eight albums as well as couple of live albums and compilations alongside nine EPs. Eläkeläiset was at the peak of their popularity in 1995, when a real humppa scoop shook the nation in the summer. In the past years, the joyous noise of humppa has risen up to the heavens and carried out to foreign territories. Eläkeläiset has become a fixture.. an anarchistic and inebriated institution of sorts. In addition to cover songs, it has dabbled in composing its own humppa classics. Over the last ninteen years, it has toured all over Europe and has recording contracts in Central Europe and Russia. It has generated a book, a DVD, a couple of live albums and a plethora of merchandise raging from towels to hip flasks. Not bad for a disposable joke!

 

 

1V

Band:TAIPUVA LUOTISUORA
Album:1V
Label:NORDIC NOTES
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

The fact that the Scandinavians have a great love for progressive rock has become something determined. In Finland such a large scene has emerged, which seeks its equal. This should be the listener even noticed. With the typical Nordic calm and premeditated nature creates a huge growth in quality. The five young men from Taipuva Luotisuora spente much time for their third album, which oddly enough is called "IV". Taipuva Luotisuora was born in early 2000 in Helsinki. With the album "I" they have reached the famous "Warning" status and was a "child" of the well known "Hidria Spacefolk". The second album entitled "II" was experimenting with a singer to get rid of it compares to Hidria Spacefolk, which worked great. But good music does not need Vocals! Therefore been omitted on the new album on vocals almost entirely. This is packaged in the song "The Army of Isopods" as an instrument. The nine songs take the listener on a musical journey of its own. One can also imagine a head movie soundtrack. The songs were released out of a feeling. It's about the four seasons (winter = Imaginary Blizzard, Hopeful Sprout = spring, summer and Capricious Bonfire = muting Glow = autumn), a topic which Vivaldi had been successfully implemented. Seasoned the sound next to guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, and the typical 70s synth sound of the kantele and the violin. The result is an incredible mix of time before the men were in the world up to modern times. An exciting album of an exciting young band.

VELVET PRINCE - REISSUE

Band:MIKE JOHNSON
Album:VELVET PRINCE - REISSUE
Label:BRUTAL PLANET
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Available on CD for the very first time as Volume 4 in the Born Twice Records / Legends Remastered collectible full color digipak series of early Jesus Music from the 70’s. Another quality album from Johnson’s classic period that continues with the high standards set on Lord Doctor. Dynamics run the spectrum from the Dylan-esque rocker ‘On To L.A.’ and the blistering hard rock of the title track to rural acoustic ballads like ‘Standin’ At The Station.’ Johnson’s barbed wit can be found in the finger-picked rag ‘Something’s Goin’ On,' as well as the lazy hippie country stroller ‘Your Health Food Won’t Get You Into Heaven’ (“yogurt ain’t got no savin’ power"). The opening ‘Dilemma’ has a nice moody 12-string classic rock vibe. Jazz grooves come by way of ‘Would You Believe’ (re-interpreted from the Exkursions album) and the closing instrumental cover of jazz organist Jimmy Smith’s ‘Mellow Mood.’ Mike plays acoustic and electric guitars while the friends provide organ, guitar, bass and drums. For fans of Larry Norman, Phil Keaggy, Randy Matthews, Neil Young, Exkursions, Tom Petty, and Daniel Amos!

It is perhaps his finest moment. The polished album has two title tracks: "The Artist" has a country feel, while "The Riddle" goes for a renaissance sound enhanced by flute and recorder. "Lord, Doctor" appears again. "The Wedding Song" uses a biblical metaphor to describe Christ coming to gather the Church for an eternal consummation. "Little Boy" offers a moving tribute to the task and joy of parenting. Harmony magazine selected Johnson as "Artist of the Year" on the strength of this album. The album is produced by the iconic early Jesus Music legend, Randy Matthews. For fans of Larry Norman, Phil Keaggy, Randy Matthews, Neil Young, Exkursions, Tom Petty, and Daniel Amos

FUTURE SEED

Band:DIVULGENCE
Album:FUTURE SEED
Label:Bombworks
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Everything begins with the purity and aggression of the 80's Bay Area thrash scene, but DIVULGENCE further fuels its righteous onslaught with progressive metal done right. The songs are complex, unpredictable, and always interesting, but the "progginess" never detracts from the pure metal insanity. The guitar riffs are brutal and uncompromising, but very sophisticated. And they strike a perfect balance between driving metal riffs and jaw-dropping complexity. DIVULGENCE combines the influences of Believer, Extol, Slayer, Tourniquet, Death, and Skeletonwitch while pushing the boundaries of creative, extreme metal with stunning results!
