Voivod to release new album next year

Posted by ChrisDude on Thursday, February 19, 2015 at 9:45 PM (PST)

In a recent interview, Voivod drummer Michel “Away” Langevin revealed that the band the legendary Canadian metal band is planning to release a new album next year, which will be their first since 2013′s Target Earth. He states:

“We wanna release a bunch of seven-inch [singles] first. We have many split seven-inch [singles] coming up this year — the first one with At the Gates in April, and the new want to do another one with Napalm [Death], and another one with Corrections House, and so on. But eventually we’ll write a whole bunch of songs and compile everything into an album, I would say, early next year. Right now we’re sort of touring on the new single that came out the first day of the [current] tour in Miami, ‘We Are Connected’. But this is coming out in April as a seven-inch with At the Gates.”

Away was also asked if their recently-released new song “We Are Connected” is a good representation of Voviod’s direction for the next album. He replied, “Absolutely. It’s shameless prog rock, but it’s Voviod, and the thrash metal [influences are] there. It’s what we do naturally. We are working on two new songs in the back of the bus on the computer, and it’s definitely the same direction as ‘We Are Connected’.”

You can watch the interview below.

Away just recently joined the international punk/metal supergroup Tau Cross, who are planning to release their debut album this spring on Relapse Records.

Gary Meskil talks about Crumbsuckers reunion

Posted by ChrisDude on Friday, February 6, 2015 at 3:06 PM (PST)

Crumbsuckers bassist and founder Gary Meskil was recently interviewed by Noisey, where he talked about the band’s reunion. Asked if their upcoming performance at this year’s Black N’ Blue Bowl will be a one-off or the band will continue, Meskil replied:

“Well, we don’t have any plans of sort of rehashing the band’s career at this point, or making new music together, or even looking beyond the Black and Blue Bowl. If I had to guess right now, I would say that it would be the last time the band will get together. Everybody’s really busy doing other stuff. With Chris I know that it’s really trying on him, to try and get it back into the full swing as a hardcore singer. He has been out of the game for so many years; it has to be pretty tough for him.”

The Crumbsuckers, who released only two studio albums in their initial career (1986′s Life of Dreams and 1988′s Beast on My Back), first broke up in 1989 and shortly resurfaced under the name Heavy Rain before briefly reviving the Crumbsuckers name in 1990 and again in 2006. After the Crumbsuckers’ second breakup in the early 90′s, the rhythm section of Gary Meskil and Dan Richardson went on to form Pro-Pain, while Chuck Lenihan ended up with The Genitorturers.

Our apologies are sent to all of our European fans, we will see you soon enough.

Album Review: Cowards – “Rise to Infamy”

Posted by Seaniam on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at 1:52 PM (PST)

Cowards are from France and they play what is best described as metal with elements of sludge/crust and black metal. So yeh..its pretty heavy. This is the bands second long player and it comes out via Throatruiner Records on vinyl/digital in Feb 2015.

Cowards material features blasts of fast discordant metal with howling screams and are just as comfortable slowing it right down, getting really low and gutteral. There are more than a few exceptionally meaty ‘chug-chug-chug’ moments and other sections where the guitars just drone on notes too. Basically Cowards are a band that play at two extremes and rarely anywhere between them. It’s dark and relentless music that might tire a few listeners after only a few songs though.

The opening track “Shame Among Shame” is a 6 minute epic full of contrasting metal/sludge/doom stuff and is loaded with noise, feedback and bigger-than-big guitars. It’s got a little bit of everything that you’ll hear throughout the rest of the album.

Track #4 “Beyond My Hands” plays with some great string bends in its beginning and creates a dark kind of ambiance before the vocals and rhythm kicks in. Album highlight in my opinion.

Track #7 “Anything But The High Road” is an unexpectedly short track with a haunting field recording (media sample?) of a woman talking at the start for a few seconds and then the group storms back in for full effect with the established hugeness and aggression.

There are definitely some interesting idea’s at play throughout the 10 tracks and it feels very consistent and blends together well. The vocals are more like howls and screams which will either do it for you… or they won’t. It suits this stuff because you don’t exactly sing along to it and the lyrics are completely indecipherable from the performance, but it could have been made more interesting, whether that’s through better use of tones, technique, or even other vocals?

The mix is uncompromising and raw. Clearly some serious effort goes into making something sound so huge and yet out of control at the same time. The artwork though.. I dont like. Anytime violence is depicted against a woman, I feel like we’re crossing a line that is getting easier and easier to cross. It’s unacceptable in this social and political climate… or is that just an Australian thing? Yes it is stark, confronting and uncomfortable to look at (in a sense sort of fitting for the music) but it’s my opinion that it’s a poor choice. There should be zero tolerance for that with respect to women and it’s a shame that no one stopped it or urged the band to use a different image.
