One of the first truly exciting rock releases of 2014 is almost here. Swedish power trio Truckfighters will release its fourth studio LP ‘Universe’ in North America Feb. 4 via Fuzzorama Records. The Swedish band, who Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has called "not just the best band I'd ever heard, but the best band that ever existed" and who has created some of the best stoner rock records of the last decade, describes th...
#LinkFrogging...can't even think of a word that rhymes.
Life has remained nice and busy in Venomous Maximus land (aka Houston). The band signed with Napalm Records last month, as rave reviews for their debut full-length ‘Beg Upon The Light’ continued to roll in, and is currently putting together plans for a summer tour. A June 18 stop in Little Rock is already confirmed as is a date at Reggie’s in Chicago June 22 with Valient Thorr, Gypsyhawk, and Ramming Speed.
In between, the band will play Days Of The Doomed Fest II at the Blue...
Chapel Hill, NC’s, mighty VALIENT THORR releases its sixth studio album (and first in 3 years) Our Own Masters June 18 via Volcom Entertainment. The band recorded at Ronnie Jone Sound Studios in Athens, Ga., with Kyle Spence (Harvey Milk) producing, engineering, and mixing.
Valient Thorr, as epitomized by front man Valient Himself, is the high point in the crossroads of party and thought. You cannot party harder while at the same time stretching your brain pan. If yo...
As the European festival season winds down, fall releases and US touring move to the fore. Updates on Baroness and Testament’s European road trips precede discussion of Crazy Uncle Dave’s latest rant on US politics from the stage in Singapore and the judge’s ruling in the Kyuss Lives! lawsuit. Loond dissects recent releases from Malice and Lord Fowl and Jibbies explores the greatness and present-day influence of Blue Oyster Cult via their new retrospective box set. Fall releases? How ‘bout Down, Enslaved, the Sword, Neurosis, and Power Trip as just the tip of the iceberg? And tours? In addition to already-announced road work from Gwar, DevilDriver, Cancer Bats, Red Fang, and Black Tusk, J&L pile on with US tours including Converge, Kvelertak, Torche, Valient Thorr, and Tomahawk. Finally respect is given to the rapidly selling-out October European package of Slash and Ginger and info provided on how to give fellow metalhead Ed from Doomantia.com a helping hand.

Houston's Venomous Maximus just last week finished recording their full-length debut, 'Beg Upon The Light.' Vocalist/guitarist Gregg Higgins was kind enough to take a few minutes and talk to Jibbies, from the GonzoGeek-hosted, 'The Jibbies & Loond Show,' about both the new record and the band's upcoming eastern US tour.
Jibbies: You’re about to finish tracking on the new record, your full-length debut. How has the recording process differed this time from the first couple of tr...
Based on the strength of their Friday performance, Saturday sees Jibbies & Loond point their metal towards Red 7 in hopes of catching a full set from Cancer Bats. It seems, however, that they were not alone in this pursuit, the Alternative Press showcase they’re part of proving even more popular than Shirts For A Cure had the prior day. The line stretches ¾ of a block from Red 7’s door to the corner, and then another half block up Red River. Given the amount of time J had ...
