Melvins: 30th Anniversary Tour, Covers Album, Maryland Deathfest

The Melvins celebrate their 30th anniversary with an extensive North American tour, kicking off July 12 in Phoenix, Ariz. “Has it really only been 30 years?” asked singer/guitar player Buzz Osborne. “Dang! Thanks to everyone who’s been there for us! It’s been an exciting trip and I probably should have listened and learned more. I apologize for anything I’ve ever done wrong and for anything I’m going to do wrong… Ha!” ‘Everybody Love...

Long Live Jeff Hanneman

I’m pretty sure it’s still too soon for me to write this, but I can’t put it off; reminded anew of the foolishness of putting anything off. I saw Slayer more times than I can easily remember, though nowhere near as many times as some of my more devoted brothers. Appropriately enough, given the brotherhood within both the band and the metal community as a whole, almost all of my most vivid memories of Slayer, and through them Jeff Hanneman, are shared with others. There was th...

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 053 - Black Kadavar Christ Shujaa

Hail demons! Strap it on as we explore the slippage of the giants and the possibility that new sounds can still be created, capping it off with an epic musical journey into the desert of your mind. Ozzy, Sabbath, Mustaine….we’re watching you, best come correct. Already racking up major kudos are the nouveau-Lizzy stylings of Black Star Riders, Kadavar, Rotting Christ, and Blaak Heat Shujaa. Time to listen, ya’ll.

Venomous Maximus making summer tour plans

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...

SXSW 2013 - Video Special, Mar. 15: Heaviness and emo-killers

The third and final day of my abridged trip to SXSW is a marathon [aren’t they all? – Ed.], and I ease in slowly by taking care of things nooner style at Brooklyn Vegan with free Jameson and the best vegan food a meat and cheese loving slob like myself will ever eat, a queso made by www.FoodForLovers.com. Truly outstanding. Come for the flavor, stay cuz your guts won’t feel like someone shit cement into them afterwards. Suitably fortified and sustained my gaze eventually turn...

Jibbies & Loond - Video Special: SXSW 2013 Small Stone Showcase

Art by Brian Mercer One of the highlights each year of Jibbies & Loond’s pilgrimage to SXSW is the Small Stone Showcase. For 2013 label-head Scott Hamilton chose a nice blend of repeat performers (Suplecs, last year’s fill-ins Wo Fat) and fresh blood, including such eastern US acts as, Mello Bravo, Supermachine, Freedom Hawk, and Lord Fowl. Hamilton even took a turn on-stage himself , laying it down on guitar with his own band, Luder. I won’t break down each band except ...

SXSW 2013 – Wednesday, Mar. 13 - Metal and Punk collide

All photos Chris Smith/GonzoGeek Media Inc. Straight out of the car from Houston and straight into metal at SXSW, courtesy of the Show No Mercy Day Party hosted by House of Vans at Mohawk. Mohawk is a great place for this kind of event, with a small indoor stage and a micro-amphitheater allowing for two bands to play simultaneously without any sonic bleed. Wet Lungs was first up inside. The three-piece’s songs had the brevity and force typical of grind, but also carried a certain mo...

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.

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...
