"Grand Blood" by DOOMRIDERS

'Hellish Doomfrontiers Comeback'

Boston Based Heavy Metal/Hardcore League 'Doomriders' comeback with their latest new Album, features Blood, Sweat, Rage, and more Hard than the core. Hands up and fist pump. This is their 3rd Studio Album, after The successful of "Darkness Comes Alive" . Produced by Kurt Ballou, 'Darkness Comes Alive' was most to be told Shawn Bosler of Decibel magazine lauded the band's skilled songwriting, saying that "the stellar songwriting sounds like a well-honed band working together, stretching out the tunes and getting all ninja pyrotechnic on your ass." Now the New album is Out, will it carries on the Success? Let's Find out.






 

Tracklist:
01. Intro (0:36)
02. New Pyramids (3:53)
03. Mankind (2:45)
04. Grand Blood (3:48)
05. Bad Vibes (3:32)
06. Dead Friends (4:03)
07. Death In Heat (5:54)
08. We Live In The Shadows (4:42)
09. Gone To Hell (3:41)
10. Back Taxes (3:07)
11. Father Midnight (5:48)


Now don't get me wrong, you may find something really new to the band Blood vein, More characteristic, More Power. the ones that really pulls me out of my chair and banging my head was 'New Pyramids' they got this kinda like rock n roll shredding going on around it, more like a complicated mixtures of Awesomeness, plus Nate Newton vocals more added up to the track, Making it more Anger fueled, bloddy bad ass. 'Bad Vibes' were kinda Punk/Heavy Metal tune you always hear back in the days, Cool, It's like one of those Jogging soundtrack when suddenly you got chased by someone's dog. It's rockish punk heavy metal, Me Likey!. 'Death In Heat' Track starts of with something you familiar with doom bands, Big ass riff, slo mo's and weed. It's death rides southwards, Hot, and blooded, sweaty, and Riffy. Pounding your ear with those Doomriders based sounding tune, you can hear the Bass line like a Pure rage englightment, 'Back Taxes' it reminds me of Coliseum somehow, one of my favorite band too, Pure heavy punk combine with hardcore heavy metal DNA, what can you get?  A Hardcore heavypunk  soundtrack, back to the jogging again! 'Mankind' was kinda The Ocean like intro, only it's a bit more than just Tech metal, it still have Doomriders main DNA. not much to say actually. 'Dead Friends' was one of Nate song about their deceased fellow friends, He said, "I didn't want it to be sad, I wanted it to be a celebration. I'm not going to sugar coat it. It's sad. But you can't spend your whole life in grief." About the lose theme of Grand Blood, Newton said, "The record focuses on getting older and dealing with death and all the responsibilities I was shirking most of my life. It's about looking in the mirror and taking responsibility." 'Gone To Hell' Is maybe one of the most song that features Nate didn't scream, Nate was singing about grief, pain & death. 'We Live In The Shadows'  darkness themed this band, So this is my favorite track, one from the many, it straighten up the Term and the Identity of 'Doomriders' itself. 'Father Midnight'  It's like one of those Post-Metal song reminders, headbanging Addict will made this into one of their Main playlist. Interesting. Rage really does much of the album, Blood and pain does the trick. 'Grand Blood' was intruigingly magnificent, complex hardcore heavy metal. shreddin bass tune, axe killing with the guitar, and Blood massacre. I'm giving 'Grand Blood' 3.5/5

VROSK: "WORLD COLLAPSE/METRUMTANSAMAR" DEMO

V R O S K: "Doom Sludge Drone Sensation After First Bite"

"Furious Doom On, Sludge On Term This Band is"

Hailing from bandung, these guys Condemned theirselves with Drone/Doom/Slugde DNA. Reminded us that there is still a Hell beneath our rugged foot. "World Collapse/Metrum Tan Samar"  Demo Feature's 4 Track Of Drone Sludge Bloodgeoning  Here's the Track list & The boys who are behind Vrosk:






VROSK
  • World Collapse
  • Metrum Tan Samar
  • Mammoath
  • Untitled
 

 

V R O S K

Photos By: Maternal Disaster
  • AGAN AHSAN(VOICE)
  • ASHARI PANJI(DRUMS)
  • AOKI SETIAWAN(VISUALS)
  • DEATHLESS RAMZ(GUITARS)
  • FIRMAN OKTAVIAWAN(GUITAR, BASS)





 
Now let's see how the music is actually, the band really knocked their way out, the 1st track 'World Collapse' Is a full on description how our beloved world collapse, destroyed, and the guys illustrate how it would be, A Drone racketting around earholes really gets to you somehow 9 minutes of lone longing in demolishing your inner spirit within, Vrosk Endure the world destruction and set off to do some more damage. "Metrum Tan Samar" was sludge beating Doom Ignition to world annihilation. it is slow, crippling your feet within, really a beatdown amongst the living, you can't really hear how it turns out actually, I don't know. It sounded so Dark, and damp. 'Mammoath' really describe like a living creature who walks the earth in loneliness, like a dark walking Mammoth who survived the aftermath, it's slow and pounding, remind you somehow of Lee Dorian's 'Cathedral' . They don't really knock the door when to enter, Vrosk break the fucking door and blast your arse with a full on Sludge Doom Shotgun shells, simply Staggering indeed. 'Untitled' sounds like an emptiness glows within the dark reign forest, like a creature lurking behind the bushes, trees, trying to hunt down those who survived the post-apocalypse. Hardcore like beat combined with slow doom riffage really. Some musical influences are too being inserted in this dark themed band, some like Post-rock'ish tune sometime you heard in the track, mainly all the track are all instrumental. A Plus for this themed destruction Producers. I'm giving 3.5/5

SOMNIUM: BLACK CAMPAIGN(ORANGE CLIFF 2015)

SABBATH IS STOOGING THE DOORS

7 Tracks on repeat

Another marvelous combination in the world of music, Warning, this is not that Melodic Hard Rock Band Somnium band from the New England, this is a different type. Somnium is a psychedelic fused low tuned sabbath stooges doors combustion, with a trio line up of devastating proportion from Bandung, West Java. Peformed in 7 tracks debut album, and released by the infamous Bandung Based sub-genre label Orange Cliff Records. This album is mastered by Jack Control in Austin Texas(Enourmous Door Studio). Cryptid, raw, and lo-fi deliquents, they're bringing back reference from psychedelic of The Doors, raw ness of groove by The Stooges, and the amplifying rock anthem of Black Sabbath. But, there is more than what meets the eye. They combined some fuzz desert stoner punk rock/garage/blues hormones and inject them into their very own dna. Holy shit, that's a lot to take in..




"Black Campaign" this terms is usually being used in politics and elections. Despicable and maniacal, this defines Somnium to what they are. Their haze of vocals beatdown rocknroll blues garage crescendo tuning into your ears, that my friend is "Putrefaction" a sexy anthem swinging around the corner and drinking that jack, smoke some of that blunt weed while walking under the so called City Lights. In the end there is this sudden change of punk rock/garage rhythym.



"Morbid Dependecy", this how you handle things in the wild west. If Clint Eastwood was around when this came out in The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, this is the original score for the film soundtrack. The tequila was poured down unto the sonic throbbing fused speaker. Making that riff mating with some coyotes. "Pigs", maybe is one of those tracks when you trying to fuck shit up while in a traffic jam, or getting chased by frickin pigs. You can't hear anything actually due to the thickness of that hazy vocals but who gives a damn fuck, it's all about that riff. This was used as their single from this upcoming album. Positive feedbacks were given.

"Barbaric Transition" was a knock out desert garage blues rock session, some Samsara Blues Experiment effect combined with that Blues Pills and Goat down tempo mofo, they are changing their lanes in the progress. "Black Campaign" is a trench low core fillet of pure grilled vertical barbaric riff mounted blues notes. Those Lowrider anti-depressants are working well for an stupendous debut album.






I'm giving this album

4.2/5

Seringai: "Heavy Slaying Riffs and A Boaring Sound of a Madman" With "Taring"(Fangs)

Seringai: Heavy Metal, Alcohol and By God Holy Name, There's a Lot of Riffs.


Earwax, Earwax Everywhere.


I know, Looks like outdated, This album was released in 2012, so Basicly it was two years ago. but what the hell. I've been knowing these guys since I was in Junior High School. "Serigala Militia" the first Album that I've heard when these guys come Along. 2007 If I'm not mistaken, Bringing Heavy Metal to the masses. And yes, They make a huge impact. One of Indonesia finest Heavy Metal brethern. They already have 3 Albums. The first one is 'High Octane Rock', second 'Serigala Militia', third 'Taring'(Fangs), and Were here to talk about the New album 'Taring' which in English means "Fangs". Seringai is known for their combination between Heavy Metal, Alcohol and a fuck lot of Riffs, Their artwork is basicly include Skulls and Fangs reminding you of Pushead back in the days. A Quartet Heavy Metal Brigade from Jakarta. Combining Stoner Rock hardened riffage and Loud as fuck, Motorhead style. Lemmy would be proud. Arian on Vocals, Ricky on Guitar, Sammy on Bass and Khemod on Drums. Now the Album






 

The track starts of with 'Canis Dirus' a glimmering resonation of an acoustic guitar. Western stuff, John Wayne on the background. and the Strumming began to blending in. Seeing horizons in the west, basicly this Intro is. And when the guitar solo Kicks in. Everything Changed. "Dilarang Di Bandung" was on set, Pedals, Bass, Riffs, and Boom!. Let me visualize the song. It's like riding a Goddamn Chopper and Shooting bad guys left and Right. A Purely breed of Sonic Heavy Metal right in the Nuts. Earwax guys, Play it on High volume to feel the vibe. The third one is a bit more merrier, a combination of Orange Goblin and Kvelertak, but still having those Riff laden flare. Now the next one is favorite one. "Fett, Sang Pemburu" or you can say "Fett, The Hunter" A tale for the Galaxies Most Bad Ass Bounty Hunter. 'Boba Fett', yes, you heard me said it. A Tribute to the Hunter. It's like a Soundtrack for War this album is. Jesus Christ, there's a lot of riffs dude. I mean a lot.


"Tragedi" and "Infiltrasi" are basicly the Prom Queen in this album, Indulging Headbanging to the masses. Caution this album may cause blowing your earhole. The more higher volume you put does make a Difference. "Gaza" a Instrumental track which filled with Beers and Heavy Rock. You can hear the the pounding, and the Grief. Actually in my Opinion believe this song is About the conflict in Gaza, Palestine. It's been going on for a while tho', but I don't know, it's just my opinion actually. In the middle of the song you can hear when the Acoustic guitar comes in, somehow reminding me of Baroness. Oh such sweet joy this album is. There's a correllation between the sweet part and the heavy part.

There are so many reasons, Why I think this one of Indonesia most Influential band. If you haven't get their album be sure to get it. You live regretting your life. Cheers. I'm giving it (4.0/5.0)

((AUMAN)) - ROARING FROM THE SOUTH WITH (((SUAR MARABAHAYA)))

((AUMAN)) Suar Marabahaya:

“Southern Tiger Uprising”

For centuries, mankind have been doing quite a remarkable destruction to our beloved planet earth. For years they have been hunting down protected animals and who are believed, are now dangerously near extinction. “Pantera Tigris Sumatrae” A well proctected animal in the South Sumateran Forest, who is believed almost extinct. Is being hunted down and kill in their own Throne. Well ((AUMAN)) is not going to be happy with that.
 


 

Formed In the land of Kings, South Sumatera. These bad boys worship and protect the kings of the sumateran forest, And Made that whole thing into a music album. Titled and Named “SUAR MARABAHAYA” Going out Dangerously By Demajors Records. The Personnel itself are Farid Amriansyah who is known to be the frontman for Dagger Stab, Ahmad Ruliansyah Are from hardcore metal band known as Delirium, Grindpunk pioneers in Sumatera Rongsokan, Abin Sulaiman as Bassist, And Then The Guitarist And Drummer, Erwin Wijaya and Aulia Effendy are from a Indie/Rock/Post Band named Grey. Artwork was made by the Erwin Wijaya And Aulia Effendy, who has deal with a lot of bands Such as The I.C.U, The Pure Acoustic, Grey, Dagger Stab, etc

 



 

Here’s The Track List :

I. Intronitroduction : Year Of The Tiger
II. Unholy Terror
III. W.K.G.G(Wong Kito Gilo Galo)
IV. Viva Rimau! Rimau!
V. City Of Ghosts
VI. Suar Marabahaya
VII. Subsonic Teenage Dream Machine
VIII. Brokenhard Rock
IX. (We Are) The Sons Of The Sun
X. Sangkakala Apokalips
XI. Macho(Vetty Vera Cover)

In this album the boys combine hardcore with rock and a stoner atmosphere style. very nicely fucking catchy, good tempo, it’s like going crescendo to like this album. The first track Intronitroduction: Year Of The Tiger Heavy rock swing very headbanging indeed. keeps you energized within your car seat. Like strapping your white ass with a seatbelt. While the second track & the 3rd track, Unholy Terror & W.K.G.G They explain the awesomeness to fast kick ass hard rock to your ear and telling you not to low the damn volume even when your Dad is around. I Find this song really knocks you down of the moshpit, made you loose yourself entirely, But, on the other hand the guys explain how dangerously life is in South Sumatera, living the peaceful life only if you had a knife in your hand, It’s like Brooklyn And Bronx, Only Hotter and the sons of bitches who live here are all have that one slang that could get a man killed about something stupid. Viva Rimau! Rimau! Is the song where these rocknrollers explain that they worship, protect, and made an Ode to the South Sumateran Forest King, The South Sumateran Tiger. Fast Kick Ass Rock And Roll Tempo. Sharing the stories that they are the “Guardian” Of the king itself, And Not To Be Fuck With. It’s like trying to kick Bruce Willis out from Die Hard. City Of Ghosts come with slow, rock riff, if everyone ever said Western Swing, I Called This Tropical Swing, Very super effective if combine with a weed. Now This is my favorite track of all, Suar Marabahaya, Subsonic Teenage Dream Machine, And Brokenhard Rock. These three songs really can’t keep me off my seat, all of the sudden you would’be already hanging in a fucking coconut tree dangling your ass like a fucking tarzan. The Rock, The Hardcore, The Stoner Atmospheric Combined perfectly, Alas the results were really unfuckable! .The Vocals are too Impossible to be fuck with. The Amplifier really knocks down a fucking tree. the lead vocals are really in too it. good soundtrack for a bank heist, a gun fight, or bare hand fight, either way it’s awesome, not to be missed with. While (We Are) The Sons Of The Sun Deals With Hard Rock, Stoner Riffage. Take It Slow And Then Make your earholes Blow. having a sun bathe in a dessert. although we are not really in it were are just implying it. Now The Track That really deals with judgement day and heavy raw power, the pure hard rock fury power, Sangkakala Apokalips is the thing you need. Sudden Eargasm it a caution to those who seek trouble. The Vocals in this track really goes out, darkness clutches the world, people is like seeking refuge to live. yeah much more like apocalyptic disaster. More the less recommended for Doomsday Soundtrack. The Last Track Macho , Where ((AUMAN)) Covers Vetty Vera Song, This song goes for bad ass villain, who can’t be fucked with only raw power, you need strength and agility to do this kinda thing. The song suits for bad ass troublemaker in the neighborhood.

That’s all that I could say about this debut album Simply kicks the dick right in the prick. Remember The ((A)) Is Silent,  but the Fangs won’t be. keep that in your mind my friend

BLACK//HAWK: SELF TITLED EP(2015)

Southern Young Blood Retaliation

Outwitted and outnumbered




From the minds of a pale law abiding citizen, Black//Hawk puts their aim a little higher. These five southern quartet recently premiered their single teaser for this upcoming S/T EP titled "Schizophrenia". Released by Blacksheep Recordings and Rimauman Music. We think that this album is a bit Muddy, Noise, Feedback, Raw, and Sludge-blatantly face to face dirt en-visioned with a little d-beat/crust punk essence and that abrasive Mike IX Williams vibe vocals, Non-theless being Executive Produced by Farid Amriansyah who put some of his vocals layout in the album, mastered and mixed by Jimmy(AD Studio) and a cover album art by GOORM.







Six gritty back to back tracks, as we said before, it was gritty, raw, and full dirt loathe. Songs like "Doppelgangers" is an apparition of ourselves, there are not a lot of rooms to make variations, but thats okay, I consider this is more like a an aggresive sludge-waste beatdown, Ethical and Thrashers in with manner of contempt not to be interfere with. "Schizophrenia" is the prom Queen on all of this pale and despair themed album, Charging with a buzzsaw of punk rock fury, they bleed their artery and carry on with it. The bass lines in this album represents some nasty shit of mean, it's Intimidating in a weird way after being fused in with the feedback. 


"Nervous Breakdown" 
No, it's not that Black Flag song. Rhythmic aggresiveness continues flowing ferociously like pack of rabid dogs. It's a predictable tune if you can compete. "III(Beige Menjadi Hitam)" starts launching in with frustrating of scream and lunging in to this sludge ritted in. "Rinela" is all about that bass, deep, distorted, mean and intimidating. Plus those amplified beatdown feedback note descending on the throne. Sure, there is a moment when the brutality stands down a let the moment of soundscaping begin, they restrained their inner beast "Final Ending" is a bit post-ish ambient creepy atmosphere clouding in around you, Misanthropic and pre-emptive. 





We're Giving this 3.0/5
