San Francisco’s Burn River Burn Blaze At The Powerhouse In Folsom

Burn River Burn

Some crazy robot at Pandora says:
“Features Hard Rock roots, a subtle use of vocal harmony, mild rhythmic syncopation, varying tempo and time signatures, and minor key tonality.”

Fans say:
“Bluesy alt-rock with soulful vocals and gritty guitar work. There’s touches of Seattle grunge on these grooves but mixed up with more than a spoonful of delta blues magic.” – FDJ, Canvey Island, UK

“Love the singer’s voice – Contemporary Ozzyish (especially when doubled in the choruses). Guitar riffs are super hooky, and the rhythm section is tight as F*#K! Really dope stuff – just bad ass rock n roll/hard rock.” – Rick K., West Lake Village, CA

“BAD ASS…A solid original band that is a must see again!”- Timothy B, unsuspecting fan

Media says:
“This band has great song writing ability and a southern swagger that defines them as a whole…This is a high energy rock band that loves to play great riffs.” – Evor Entertainment

“It’s sound like a unique cross between Van Halen and Pantera” – Justin Kretizer, ReviewYou

One of the “best 4 bands in the Bay Area” – 107.7 The Bone


New Abnormaility Full Album Stream

Massachusetts-based extreme metal outfit Abnormality will be releasing their upcoming sophomore full-length, Mechanisms of Omniscience, on April 29th worldwide via Metal Blade Records! Marrying the ceaseless brutality coming out of New York and New England to the hyper-blasting intensity endemic to Quebecois death metal, Mechanisms of Omniscience is as unrelenting as it is passionate, and the album tackles real world issues with intelligence and raw emotion.

Formed in 2005, Abnormality drew its members from the ranks of units such as Teratism, Forced Asphyxiation, Goratory and Sexcrement, and they have worked patiently and persistently to build up a grassroots following, maintaining their integrity while steadily expanding beyond their local scene. In 2010, they dropped their debut EP, The Collective Calm In Mortal Oblivion, which immediately drew attention in the underground, followed by the crushing and critically acclaimed full-length, Contaminating The Hive Mind (2012), cementing their status as one of the heaviest and most dynamic bands in the genre. Now, with their upcoming sophomore effort,Mechanisms of Omniscience – produced once again by Peter Rutcho, and featuring artwork by vocalist Mallika Sundaramurthy – the quintet have never been more serious about getting their message out there, as well as ensuring legions of the moshing masses incur whiplash. See below for the official track-listing!

Valient Thorr Announces “15 Years on Earth Tour”‏

VALIENT THORR are the baddest band on the planet (from another planet). They have been rocking their adopted home of Earth since arriving here from Venus over fifteen years ago.  With six albums under their belt Napalm Records will release their seventh album later this year! This MC5/James Brown inspired quintuplet have stood the test of time morphing in and out of what Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister calls simply- Rock N’Roll.
In support of the new album VALIENT THORR will be hitting the road in North American on the “15 Years on Earth Tour”.  Joining them on the road will be Pears, Black Wizard and label-mates Hammer Fight.  The tour kicks off May 25th in Asheville, NC and runs through July 13th in Baltimore, MD.
“Alahoyus true believers! We are super psyched to be coming back after SO long. In this specific time period of savage psychic political and media warfare, and with the loss of so many true artistic voices- we need all Thorriors to slap their big bare foot on the nearest log like that lil rabbit in Bambi, and let them all know WE ARE COMING.”

New Kick Ass “Death” Metal From Gruesome

Multi­-state death metal project GRUESOME was born out of guitarist/vocalist Matt Harvey and drummer Gus Rios’ mutual involvement with the Death To All tours (Harvey served as frontman for the original mini­-tour and Rios both performed “Baptized in Blood” and worked with DTA drummer Sean Reinert on the following US tour where Exhumed filled in as support). After discussing and discarding the idea of putting together another incarnation of DTA to focus exclusively on the first two albums, Harvey half­-jokingly suggested that the pair write their own songs in intentional homage to Death. It wasn’t long before the idea gained traction, and the band soon had five tracks written. With Harvey writing in California, Rios recruited Possessed guitarist Daniel Gonzalez and Derketa bassist Robin Mazen to record the material in Florida, while Harvey tracked his vocals on the West Coast.
