METAL BLLETIN #105

Dracena (Sweden) Tony MacAlpine (U.S.) Night Viper (Sweden) black metal tour in Washington state this week! Hellgoat (U.S) Vimur (U.S.) with local Washington support from: Vomicus Sacrament ov Impurity Ashen Pyre

 

 

FuglySpin** Breaking News:MMB is reporting ...RUN DMC teams up with Justin Timberlake and Myspace for a black metal album? He reports it's tricky...... MMB has an update on Testament's NEW album also MMB has a special report: Frontman David Draiman of rock band Disturbed stands for justice...

 

Black metal bands Hellgoat and Vimur—from the state of Georgia, U.S.— are in Washington this week.


Hellgoat has new two-song recording of raw, fast, occult black metal, in accordance with the tradition that the band has established for itself: it is called Eden in Flames and it will be out on September 15, 2016. In addition, they have four dates in the state of Washington.


OFFICIAL: Honing the blade of fury that was Infernal Zeal, HELLGOAT continues their assault against all creation with their latest offering, Eden in Flames. Eden in Flames features two hymns of unrelenting Satanic violence whose only reprieve is in the destruction left in the wake. Set to be released on September 15th, Eden in Flames will be issued as a 7” vinyl corelease between Boris Records in Atlanta, Ga. and Pale Horse Records in Texas.

Hellgoat formed in 2004 with the release of a self-titled demo CD. The band released several more demos before unleashing their first full-length album, Blasphemy From Serpent Tongues, in 2005. Six years and several live show later, HELLGOAT released Death Conquers All on Graveless Slumber Records. The band embarked on a short US tour in support of that album.

Two more EPs - Anointed in Blood and Ash and End of Man - and a rare live cassette titled Ceremony of Death prefaced the 2015 release of Infernal Zeal.

In September, HELLGOAT will return to the road for the "Infernal Death March part II: Ashes of the Ascended 2016" tour.

Ghostblood (Seattle) Eviscerama

Oh, no, thrashers Ghostblood have new single! run away, fool, run away!

"Ghostblood went to a party last Saturday night, they didn't get laid, they got in a fight, uh, huh, it ain't no big thing.

Late for their gig and the traffic was bad, got ride from the only friend they ever had, so Lita drove them to the show in a Ford pickup, uh,

huh, it ain't no big thing."

The trash-talking, bug-eating kings of comedy gore thrash metal (it's a new Seattle genre thing, you wouldn't understand) have inexplicably recorded a new song and it's called Eviscerama (yes, like Bananarama). These cats dress in white sneakers because they are waiting for the day that they will meet John Petrucci in the worm-infested, slimy, crime-ridden, dumpster-divers-dominated streets of Seattle's Clyde Hill or Medrona Waterfront and they are going to tell him what is what with their sneakers in John's favorite body parts. After they give him a piece of their mind they will make him listen to their new song Eviscerama on repeat for six minutes or maybe even nine minutes and he will know what Ghostblood's "gore-splattered ghostly thrash-blackening death-blood" is all about.

In case you do not know this, when you talk about Ghostblood you are supposed to reveal if you know the band or not. Well, I do not know them and I have never met them or attended one of their many shows in the

Seattle region, but just you wait, one day I will go to one of their shows! Ghostblood, I'm not done with you! In the interest of even fuller disclosure, this zine must reveal that Ghostblood sent in a copy of their new single and I am keeping in a safe vault because one day my grandkids are going to ask, "Grandma, what bands from Seattle do you like?" and I will show them that I have cds from Ghostblood. If I ever catch them listening to pop music I will grab their phones and throw them in the pool (the phones, not the kids, you sicko) and play them Ghostblood music on my boombox because I actually have one (a tiny one from the 1970s or 80s or one of those decades from a long time ago) and they will not dare be sour and they will feel the power and they will clap for the three-time world gore champions Ghostblood and it will be a new day in gore thrash and I will body slam them (the kids, not the phones because the phones will be in the pool, and you can't body slam a phone, anyway, are you keeping up?!) in the huge bouncy house that's in the backyard!

Ghostblood is back! (Well, sort of, they never go away.)

You listen, and you listen good now. You gonna be blind in Texas, blind in London, blind in Snohomish County, WA (yeah, that's real place, a place of high per capita horse ownership, too).

Neuro Attack (Brazil) Thrash Returns Release date: May 2016 Label: independent

 

 

Don’t you appreciate a band telling it like it is? Don’t make promises you can’t keep! If you promise thrash, you best give it good, fast, lean. They promise thrash and that's what they deliver. The riffs just keep going, one on top of the next, as fast they can get them out, piling them, pushing them together, and with the foot on the gas pedal. They do not know the meaning of the word slow and they have no plans to look it up in the dictionary any time soon, either.

 

The drummer plays as if he had a personal vendetta against his kit, like the kit has done something to him and he wants nothing than corporal punishment for his kit. This is the band's first recording, according to Metal Archives, so it is a raw recording and it's dirty, and the vocals are furious, in a style close to black metal. It’s a promising start for the band. Let’s hope that this is just the beginning and that things will only get better and better for them! track list:

 

1. The Real Government 05:14

2. Chaos

3, Psychopath 02:36

4. Thrash Returns 04:07

total time 16:00

Houston,TX - 8.2.16 The Fellowship of the Strings tour , had finally arrived. HOLY GRAIL/ EXMORTUS/ SPELLCASTER.

Headed straight to the show after work. 8:55pm and Spellcaster is on stage doing sound check.

Spellcaster hails from Portland, Oregon. We missed Mastema local band formely known as Legion. They had a name change?

Spellcaster is good to go 9:05p Rudyard's is actually keeping their time slots fairly close for a change.

Their sets begins with a prerecorded intro & a blast of smoke rises. They have a smoke machine!? the crowd approves. It's a first for a Rudyards show that  we seen there. The smoke alarms go crazy but it doesn't matter, you can't hear them. Spellcaster is on stage and they demand your attention with those soaring vocals, twin shredding guitars and catchy hooks.

Spellcaster songs on this video... I Live Again, Ghost of My Memory, Betrayal 8.2.16 live at Rudyard's. These guys were great!

 Tyler Loney (vocals), Cory Boyd (guitars), Bryce R. VanHoosen (guitars), Gabe Franco (bass), and Colin Vranizan (drums),

Exmortus is a band from California. They are next on stage, we missed them earlier this year. Glad we get a second chance to catch 'em live. 'Ride Forth' their latest albums is well reviewed by metal heads and Fuglymaniacs agrees. Get it!

Jadran "Conan" Gonzalez - VOCALS/ GUITAR 

David Rivera - GUITAR 

Mario Moreno - DRUMS

Michael Cosio - BASS

These guys are definitely a blue collar band. They have to Houston three times this year and singer Jadran "Conan" Gonzalez says they will be back before the year end. Exmortus latest release 'Ride Forth' has cemented their print in the metal scene. Metal Heads will expect great things from them from now on. The bar has been set high and these guys are ready to deliver.....

When asked if they are working on the album he says they have ideas as to what to do next...also asked if they had made it overseas yet? he said some offer have been extended to them but nothing great yet.

Exmortus surprised the crowd when they did a guitar 69 shredding solo  one leans over each mid section took over his guitar and continued playing. Their precision is impressive. Last time we witness this kind of shredding, class was in session with Scale The Summit. Holy grail was headlining this show. This band is from California.

Luna has described Holy Grail as "a modern band with a new twist of old-school metal with death metal riffs, modern breakdowns, and power-metal singing". Critics have described the band as playing traditional or retro heavy metal with thrash influences.

lucky for you we have love footage and you can see for yourself. All we know is that these guys rock!!

James Paul Luna – vocals (since 2008)

  • Eli Santana – guitar (since 2008)
  • Alex Lee – guitar (since 2011)
  • Blake Mount – bass (2008-2010, since 2010)
  • Tyler Meahl – drums (since 2008)

2016 has been a challenging year around here. Everytime we make it to a show like this it makes it all worthwhile. This show was perfect for us.

1.) Rudyard's cover was $11

2.) Show started at 8:30 pm even thought we missed the local band Mastema hey, it's Tuesday and we have lives too imagine that.

3.) They were all done a little past midnight...

Bands like these keep heavy metal alive and well. Road warriors earning it the hard way. We bought some merch, just trying to help out with their gas for the next show. Keep it up guys. Had a great time!!

 

Fuglyspin by MMB reports:Iron Maiden holds press conference and issues apology for guitarist Dave Murray’s blatant un-British behavior onstage

 
Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris, otherwise known as “Skippy” or “Scooter” to his close friends, began the press conference with a declaration on behalf of the band.
 
He said:
 
“First of all, let me start, by stating, quite clearly, that we in Iron Maiden as a band condemn in an unequivocal manner our guitarist Dave “Blue Monkey” Murray’s behavior at last night’s concert in London.
 
We all, Dave included, regret his lack of control and his total disregard for British ways. Certainly, it was the type of conduct unbecoming a gentleman. I assure you all that it will not happen again.”
 
The incident, by all accounts from those present, is as follows.
 
WARNING: All readers with a weak stomach will want to reach for a bag, or even a hanky here, since what you are about to read will indeed test your capacity for resisting your gag reflexes.
 
The singer Bruce “Pancake” Dickinson—who is also an author, fencer, aviation executive, mechanical engineer, quantum physicist, astronaut, perfume salesman, babysitter, kangaroo trainer, World War I veteran, cheeky monkey, hot dog eating champion and a ninja—had just done a brilliant crowd-pumping session of “Scream for me London, scream for me!!”
 
And it was this very point that the outburst happened.
While Steve was aiming and pointing his bass back and forth to the crowd, and guitarist Janick “Extra Man” Gers was prancing around like an elk, Dave Murray was smiling and playing his guitar like he usually does, when, all of a sudden, his nose started to itch, but instead of being an example of British discipline and waiting until the itching passed, Dave scratched his nose in public. It was only for a brief second and he did turn away from the crowd in an attempt to hide it, but Dave apparently does not know that the band has 3700 recording cameras for the stage, including 11 cameras just for guitarist Adrian “Tea Time It’s Party Time” Smith’s bandana, and the cameras caught it all.
 

Understandably, the Iron Maiden audience, not used to such shameful acts from Dave, was so shocked and literally tens of thousands of outraged British people did a very loud, “Oh!” and gasped in such a shocking, and visible way that it caught the rest of the band by surprise and the band stopped in the middle of the song.

 
That very night London newspapers posted headlines like:
 
“Iron Maiden offends every British citizen ever, dead or alive”
 

“Do Brits Have to Stand for Such Unethical Conduct?”

“Why does Iron Maiden Hate Britain So Much?”
 
“How Long Will Londoners Stand By and Do Nothing?”
 
“What Will It Take for English People to Speak Out?”
 
“The End of England”
 
As I write this, the British government has called an emergency meeting at Olympic Stadium, in which all British citizens will congregate. It will be a session in which all British citizens—all 62 million (actually, all 62, 273, 509 to be exact)—will be attending.
 
Upon hearing the news, Judas Priest singer Rob “Papa Bear” Halford asked, “Do I have to attend, too? I mean, bloody hell, I live in the middle of the desert in Arizona!”
 
Unfortunately for Mr. Halford, no one has answered his question because all British citizens are currently busy, travelling to the Olympic Stadium in London and do not have the time to answer his question.
 
This reporter was able to get ahold of Mr. Halford and confirmed that, yes, he must attend, so Mr. Halford is currently packing his bags and waiting for the taxi to arrive so that he can go the airport and catch a plane in that godforsaken desert place that is Arizona.
 
This reporter’s last words to Mr. Halford were, “Godspeed to you, sir!!”
 

The rest of the world—including

Katy, Texas

and Intipucá, El Salvador—nervously awaits the final verdict on this Iron Maiden case of public indecency.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE END.

7.23.2016 Saturday night we got an invite from the guys in Cassette Tape band.


They were throwing a big going away party for Cam Rowe (bass). He is leaving the band and moving to Florida to do his masters degree. Cam Rowe PH.D sounds good to us.


This will be his last show with the band.


Audic Empire is in from Austin,TX to help with the festivities. Audic Empire has been around since 2010 first started out as an idea between Ronnie Bowen(v,g) and James Tobias(v,b) Now with a full lineup:

Ronnie Bowen - vocals/Piano/Guitar/Melodica/Songwriter

James Tobias - Bass/Vocals/Songwriter

Jess Leonard - Drums/Percussion

Travis Brown - Lead Guitar

Carver Ripley - Organ/Synth/Keys/Production

Collin Gee - Rapper

They have taken Austin by storm and you can see why. These guys rock. It's that simple. enjoy!

Their axman Travis has flair for blues/rock. He just doesn't realize it yet maybe. Blues might be he's calling?...

We known Cassette Tape for a few years now and we love these guys. Lately, with the exodus of Louis, Noe and now Cam only Matt and David (IV) remain from our favorite line-up. They will take a break to regroup and see about finding replacements. As for Cam he is excited about the opportunity to finish his degree.

As their 13th caller we will request a reunion at some point. They have been warned. We hope to make it a memorable event!

Good luck Cam and No! we haven't forgotten about our favorite artist Sam. Together they make a power couple, the sky is the limit...knock 'em dead in Florida. See ya'l soon...

OUR TRIBUTE TO BILL 'THE MASTER' BATES IS HERE..

Saturday 19, 2016 We headed to Satellite bar in the east side.

Mugen Hoso was in town!!

From Japan, this duo is a live band to see.

We have seen hundreds if not thousands of live bands by now. Certain bands we try catch everytime they are in town. Saxon, Overkill & Mugen Hoso just to name a few. Still had the old shirt from their last visit and still fits..nice! New shirt needed plus this guys need all the help they can get.

Flying under the radar Mugen Hoso is a band only Fuglymaniacs can deliver. We hope you enjoy the footage as much as we enjoy the show. Mugen Hoso ROCKS!

 

3.5.2016 Tax the Wolf (live)

 

Anialator was bringing that old school thrash and Birth AD was backing them up at the White Swan. Also, Serpent Attack and HRA. We were looking forward to this show. Even thou we don't like the sound system in this hellhole know as the White Swan.

As it turns out Anialator cancelled due to singer's voice issues. We did not know however, that Birth AD has dropped out also. We didn't get that memo. Serpent Attack was now last band playing.

Serpent Attack is a new band to us. -Serpent Attack first surfaced the planet in 2010 with founding lead guitarist/vocalist Abel Molano. A few rough recordings and ass kickings later and here we are now! Isreal Pena on Bass, Ryan Solis on guitar, and Nick Bockleman on the drums. We are recording our first full length album so be on the look out all of you Serpent Heads! - Facebook bio.

April 15th - Serpent Attack opens for Grim Reaper and Helstar - $20 Concert Pub North

We never seen them live. Are these guys any good? We know HRA will melt your face with their brutality and vicious attack. This town loves HRA....

Can Serpent Attack close the deal?

Spoke with Abel (singer/guitar) He said we are getting our stuff together so we can record some of our tunes. 'we got most of our stuff set up ....' Stick around and see what you think. Abel is a big Grim Reaper/Helstar/Crimson Glory fan.

We got a like a little background so now let see....

Serpent Attack is here and we liked what we saw. If you can sound good at the White Swan, you can sound better elsewhere. We'll see if their ep can deliver....

Jordan Tydings, Idiginis, Dem

Saturday February 6, 2016 Eado's had a 71st Birthday celebration of Bob Marley. We saw the line up, all local bands. This is right up our alley. Local music played by a talented musicians.

As it turns out the place had a great turned out. It was a free event in the middle of a busy bar/club strip of downtown. Jodan Tydings singer/song writer started it all. The crowd was not interested and the chatter was loud. Maybe next time Jordan ...

In this corner we have The Champs - A band that has been around town for a while as per bio... IDIGINIS a Houston based Roots Reggae Band that started playing in 2008. From the beginning IDIGINIS has stayed true to the traditions of the Roots Reggae genre. The music along with the uplifting lyrics makes for a great band.

IDIGINIS style of reggae music is a mix of roots, rock , rhythm and blues, soul and dub. IDIGINIS has shared the stage with a wide variety of super stars which includes: Steel Pulse, Yellow Man, Ms. Chaka Khan, The Original Wailers, Sugar Minott, Freddie McGregor, Third World, Elephant Man, Ky-Mani Marley, Dub Trio, Groundation,Frankie Paul...The full length Cd entitled " Suspended Animation "is out now and available on CD Baby iTunes and Amazon. This band knows a thing or two on how to get a crowd going. We caught them doing a brand new song. Members: Currently: Aauzraam Levi - Vocals/Guitar. Dizzy Bootz - Bass. Terence Martinez - Saxophone. Nevelle O'Brady- Drums. Michael Phillips - Trumpet.. JOMO - Hand Drum

The Challenger - Dem - is a roots reggae, rocksteady sextet based in Galveston, TX. Interested in the anthropological process of music, Dem embraced reggae upon its formation with influences such as The Gladiators, Desmond Dekker, The Meters, Orchestra Baobab, and Cultura Profetica to name a few. Freshmen to the Houston/Bay Area/Galveston, Dem have been performing since September 2014

As you can see this band hasn't been around a long time. Dem carries a big stick and they are not afraid to use it. Louis Morales is the man with the plan and the vision to do it. In Louis we trust all other pay cash!!

Members: Nathan Rouse - Lead Guitar/Vocals Daniel Waterson - Bass Jonathan Kanick - Drums/Vocals Adam Carman - Percussion Sangone Diagne - Keys Louis Morales - Rhythm Guitar/Vocals

This the first show of 2016 with many more to come hopefully.

This was a good show with local talent that proves that this town has plenty to offer but you have to get off that couch and find it....We had a great time!
