Sacred Reich – The American Way

In one of the best announcements about Maryland Deathfest that could have ever happened, Exodus announced that they couldn’t do the show (which sucks, Exodus is awesome) BUT that old school thrashers Sacred Reich would be taking their place! I haven’t seen these guys in many years, and couldn’t be happier to be seeing them in a month.

 

Fu Manchu – Laserbl’ast

Had the chance to see Fu Manchu in a small venue last night, playing the entire album The Action Is Go. This song starts with a swanky little groove, and just gets better as it goes. Awesome band. Look for my full review of the show on The Vinyl District very soon!

 

Orange Goblin – Your World Will Hate This

[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBKhRjE98J4]

Ok, so I know I’ve kinda been going on about Orange Goblin lately, but what can I say? I freakin love these guys. Got to interview them for TVD, and FINALLY get to see them playing in the States! They played this one from 2002’s Coup de Grace on Saturday, and I kinda went a little nuts. I love that, like tourmates Lionize and Clutch, OG changes the setlist up every night. Wish more bands did that.

 

Kreator – Phantom Antichrist

Nothing like some good old thrash metal to get you going! These guys have been at it since 1982, and they are sounding pretty damn good these days. This one, the title track from their 2012 album, absolutely rips.

 

A Pale Horse Named Death – Shallow Grave

The second post-Type O Negative project to emerge (that I know of, I could be wrong), and it’s pretty cool. Very Type-Oish, dark, gothic metal featuring former drummer Sal Abruscato on guitar and vocals, and other former Type O drummer Johnny Kelly on drums. Looking forward to hearing more from these guys.

 

Behemoth – Lucifer

Always insanely heavy, Behemoth’s combination of brutal blackened death metal and stunning visuals make their videos captivating and frightening to watch. Sorta seems weird that they are playing the side stage in a gravel parking lot for Mayhem Fest this year. Only seems fitting to see them in a dark club if you ask me. Glad they got on the tour though – they needed to inject some serious metal on that tour.

2012Deftones

 

 

Deftones – Swerve City

I’ve always been a moderate Deftones fan, but they have really turned a corner with me since 2010’s Diamond Eyes (which was a fantastic album), and 2012’s Koi No Yokan goes even farther, with tight riffs, haunting vocals from Chino Moreno, and just another great album all around, and Swerve City is a great example of what makes this album great.

Clutch – Earth Rocker

The mighty Clutch is back, and their new tunes sound OUTTA SIGHT. They’ve been playing some new stuff on their current tour, and audiences have been loving what they are hearing. This is the title track from the new album, Earth Rocker, due out in March. Love the groove on this one.

Royal Thunder – Whispering World

I still can’t say enough good about this band. I featured them on my first Friday Find last week, and still haven’t gotten tired of this album. This one has a great groove to it, and Mlny Parsonz’ vocals go from soft to powerful to downright angry.

Orange Goblin – Acid Trial

Another band that I have been high on (pun intended) for a while now is the UK’s Orange Goblin. Eulogy for the Damned was one of my top albums of 2012. The riff at 1:50 is a great one that gets stuck in your head for a while. OG finally returns to the States this year, touring with Kyng, Lionize and Clutch – do NOT miss this one!

Opeth – Ghost of Perdition

The fine balance of melodic melodies and crushing death metal has been perfected by Mikael Åkerfeldt and company. Ghost Reveries and Blackwater Park are the 2 best from Opeth, in my opinion, and the 10 minute epic Ghost of Perdition is a stunningly beautiful yet brutal example of Opeth’s sound.

Soulfly – Plata O Plomo

I have no idea what the hell Max Cavalera and bassist Tony Campos are singing about in this song (I am pretty sure i heard something about Pablo Escobar, cocaine and Medellin in there), but this song, off of 2012’s Enslaved absolutely crushes.
