Review: Bloody Hammers – ‘Bloody Hammers'

Bloody Hammers are part of the current resurgence of accessible dark/occult heavy rock, perhaps the biggest surge since Danzig and Type O Negative were at their respective heights. But while Ghost follow an overtly theatrical path and Venomous Maximus add metal and classic guitar rock to the mix, Charlotte, NC’s, Bloody Hammers conjure their sonic hauntings through a filter that is at once slick and DIY. ‘Witch of Endor’ starts things off with Jarrett Bury’s perpetually ...

The new year is upon us. The apocalypse did not happen. And J&L are ready for Metal in 2013. In this episode the guys take a look at the records and projects slated for release this year and which ones they’re excited about and which ones they are fearful of. You’ll laugh, cry, and maybe get angry as the opinions fly about upcoming material from the likes of Black Sabbath, HIM, Ghost, Jason Newsted, Holt/Lombardo/Oliveri, Carcass, Phil Anselmo, Dillinger Escape Plan, Godflesh, and much much more.

Jibbies & Loond - Video Special: Red Fang, Black Tusk, and Lord Dying

Early November brought the double shot of Red Fang and Black Tusk to Fitzgerald’s in Houston. Lord Dying was also on the bill and started things off in fine fashion, adding touches of stoner and thrash to their own take on modern metal. Seeing a show featuring 2 of the most happening heavy bands on the planet in a space as cozy as the smaller, downstairs room at Fitzgerald’s was going to be a treat no matter what. But the first exposure to Lord Dying only added to the bargain and the...

It’s that time again. When you curl up next to your computron with your favorite elixir and listen to your good friends Jibbies and Loond talk about what they love most…Metal. Loond is up first with his account of the Converge, Torche, and Kvelertak show at Fitz. Jibbies comes in with his very next day re-cap of the Red Fang, Black Tusk, and Lord Dying show at Fitz as well. Props go out to Lo-Pan, Goatwhore, and High On Fire and their tour together. Loond talks about the new Deftones and Witchcraft records. Jibbies brings us Heat as his new music pick. Loond gushes about the At The Gates DVD set called “Flames Of The End”. The guys wrap things up with a humorous discussion about gold and its value in a post-apocalyptic world and the ridiculousness of the website called “WhatsYourPrice.com”.

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 045 - Tomahawk Sandy

Alright folks. We’ve done gone and brung it this time! Tune in for a review of the recent Tomahawk stop in Houston, as well as previews of upcoming shows by Converge/Torche/Kvelertak , Red Fang/Black Tusk/Lord Dying, and Dethklok/Machine Head/As I Lay Daying/The Black Dahlia Murder. We also offer our expert opinion on new records from Killing Joke (Loond’s early pick for big 2012 honors), Devin Townsend, Mos Generator, and Bloody Hammers. And then….things go slightly off the rails as J&L first work themselves into a froth months in advance for Clutch’s ‘Earth Rocker’ and then vent their spleens on those denizens of the northeast who have become unduly whiny in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

There’s lots of great music to accompany the free-wheeling commentary, so the time has come to do your duty: Lay back, close your eyes, open up, and take it in.

Bloody Hammers – ‘Say Goodbye To The Sun’

Clutch – ‘Spacegrass’

[Editor’s Note: J&L’s Hurricane Sandy rant is not directed at ALL residents of the northeast, many of whom suffered truly tragic losses of life and property….just the ones who seem pretty much okay but are now standing around whining. GonzoGeek’s thoughts go out to all those still recovering from losses suffered at the hands of this storm. We know from Gulf Coast experience how hard it is].

Review: 'Metalocalypse Season Four' DVD

Dethklok, the world’s greatest cultural force, return to earth in ‘Metalocalypse Season 4,’ as foretold by prophecy, to record the most important album of their career. The ups and downs of this process make for some serious metal-driven funniness. But one of the coolest things about this series is that you don’t need to be a metal fan to enjoy it. Examples of the universal human themes lampooned in Season 4 include: fan love, smoking , ‘-Con life, global economic h...
