The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 051 - SXSW 2013 Metal Preview

It’s that time again folks: SXSW, the annual excuse for attendees to know exactly where they’ll be on St. Patrick’s Day each year, or to be conflicted about how they’re going to hit the next day party and watch the first rounds of March Madness at the same time. Jibbies & Loond don’t brook these distractions lightly. Their mission is clear and their aim is true; metal immersion. If you are of similar purpose and think you have the stamina to keep up, this episode lays out everywhere you need to be to catch all the top-shelf metal you can while staggering around Austin wondering why you keep forgetting to eat and if your feet really will ever be the same again, again.

Our duo also reflect upon the Randy Blythe not-guilty verdict, look in on what Howard Jones has been up to, revel in the continued ascent of ATX’s own Scorpion Child, and try to keep up with the dueling Queensryches.

Hot Lunch 's/t' debut out through Tee Pee, Mar. 12

Heavy, San Francisco punk 'n' roll band Hot Lunch will release its self-titled debut LP Hot Lunch through Tee Pee Records next Tuesday, March 12. Recorded at Louder Studios in Grass Valley, Calif., with producer Tim Green (Jawbreaker, Christian Mistress, Earthless) other reviewers have rightly compared the band’s sound to Blue Cheer and the MC5.  But there’s other stuff at work as well. ‘Handy Denny’ blends surf rock into the mix, while ‘Killer Smile’ br...

Into The Pit

When I found out that Testament, Overkill, and Flotsam & Jetsam were touring together this year, I almost peed my pants.  Talk about Thrash Metal greatness!  The last and only time I had ever seen Flots was in 1987 in Norwalk, Connecticut at the legendary Anthrax Club.  The last and only time I had seen Overkill was in Houston in 1988.  I’ve seen Testament many times since the 80’s through the present.  And when I saw that they were selling VIP tickets th...

Jibbies & Loond - Video Special: Pallbearer, Power Trip, Venomous Maximus, Eagle Claw

Fitzgerald’s, right up there with Rudyard’s on the very short list of Houston’s longest-lived cool places to see music, has added a nice new twist to things lately: All-ages shows that are free for 21+ an just $10 for those under. What’s more, the bills often take place on a weekend and include one or more national acts people would actually want to see – Saint Vitus, Electric Six, etc. – and then a diverse line-up of local/regional groups in support; sometime...

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 049 - A New Beginning

Hello friends. Welcome to Episode 049 of The Jibbies & Loond Show. You’ll notice it sounds a little different. Our two intrepid hosts have decided to actually feature full songs for you to hear. It’s a work in progress, but so far we’re thrilled with the results. The first two tracks to tickle your ears come for Hatebreed and Sons of Aeon, both of which have new records outs right now. If we could get J&L to talk a little less, the possibility of doing three or four songs a week exists. But then you couldn’t get up to date on the various permutations of the Anthrax saga, Saxon box sets, and the glory of Power Trip live, all of which are explored within.

As I’m typing, Jibbies sits nervously in the corner, worried that he undersold the quality of the new Hatebreed album…that’s right folks, it’s a grower, and very good indeed. Have a listen and judge for yourself. We hope you like the new format.

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.
