Bleeding Gods Release First Single and Music Video!

Recently, Nuclear Blast proudly announced the signing of Dutch epic death/black metallers BLEEDING GODS and the release of their upcoming album Dodekathlon. This new record will be a concept album and is scheduled to be released on January 12th, 2018! Today, the band presents their first single with it’s corresponding music video to the song“From Feast To Beast”.

Main man and guitarist Ramon Ploeg comments the song and the video, directed by Sebastiaan Spijker“We are really proud to launch our first single ‘From Feast To Beast‘ from the new album Dodekathlon upon you! The track is about catching the Erymanthian Boar and bring it back alive to King Eurystheus. This was Hercules’ 4th labor of the series of 12 episodes concerning his penance for slaying his son, daughter and wife Megara (more info see below). Sebastiaan did an awesome job directing the video, which only shows some band shots. It is a real joy to work with him and he has a good and fast communication, which we like. We hope you will enjoy the video as much as we do!”

Primitive Race Share “Dancing On The Sun” in Honor of Late Front-Man, Chuck Mosley

On November 3rd, Primitive Race released their compelling Alternative Rock album Soul Pretender, with vocals handled by Chuck Mosely (Faith No More, Bad Brains, Cement, VUA), music by Erie Loch (LUXT, Blownload, Exageist), Mark Gemini Thwaite (Peter Murphy, Tricky, Gary Numan), Bass and song-writing from founding member Chris Kniker, and drums by Dale Crover (The Melvins). On November 9th, Chuck Mosley died after many years battling addiction, making the long awaited album the legendary front-man’s swan song. In honor of Chuck, the band has chosen to share his favorite track off of the album, “Dancing on the Sun,” and to donate 100% of 2018 album sales to MusiCares to benefit substance abuse treatments for artists battling addiction.

Says Chuck’s long-time friend Chris Kniker:
“I wasn’t prepared for any of this. Most only knew Chuck Mosley as the former singer of Faith No More; to me was a friend with whom I had formed a special bond over the past 17 years. Chuck was funny, witty, charismatic, and charming in a way that was only Chuck. He was truly one of a kind. Chuck inspired Mark, Erie, and I, and I knew we did the same for him. He felt we had created something that allowed him to grow as an artist. He was thrilled and honored to be playing on a record with Dale Crover. I was just happy to know that we made a record that I enjoyed; a group of friends creating something together. I am sure that Chuck would want us all to learn and grow from his struggles. Addiction is a horrible burden to bare for the afflicted and their loved ones. If you are or know someone who needs help don’t be afraid to ask.”

“When I listened to the music, ideas just came pouring out,” Mosley had previously stated. “I couldn’t say no to doing the record. When we completed the first few tracks, I found myself wishing I had written them. Not just the lyrics…just good heavy riffs and grooves really sucked me in. The melodies and words came super easy with this music. Even though it’s a whole different vibe it brought out a side of me I haven’t experienced since writing with Faith No More.”

In tribute to their fallen friend and bandmate, the band are streaming Mosley‘s favorite song off the album, “Dancing On The Sun“, below. You can help out with Mosley‘s final expenses at GoFundMe.

How To Deal With Groupies.

Groupies have been entertaining band members for years. Groupies are the fans that follow a ban place to place and try to find ways to gain a connection to a band member and yes most of the time it’s sexual. Most define groupies as women but there are male groupies that follow bands. Here is how to deal with groupies and not be an utter douche bag. Don’t be that band.

1. Groupies are human beings looking for a connection to heal their broken emotions. A band can inspire many. Followers will fight till their bloody over someone disrespecting their favorite band. I’ve seen it. Groupies are no different. They look to you as someone who has spoken to their heart and helped them deal with emotional pain. Not all groupies are after your fame or money but are looking to fulfill that whole in their heart that you music cannot. It may not be true love but it’s a kind of love when someone runs away from responsibility to follow you 6 months on tour. It can be problematic and it can be obsessive. Some of these people just want to derive a true friendship with you regardless of sexual connection. They want to be apart of your experience and want you to be apart of theirs. These are human beings with feelings and probably going through some kind of emotional hell to be able to debase themselves around you so treat them with respect and be mindful of their feelings. Don’t treat them like trash and use them and dispose of them. Be honest let them know how you are and what you expect from this. Don’t play with their hearts or make them feel less than you because no one is less than anybody. This brings me to my next point.

2. Not all groupies are there for you to fuck. Sometimes they want to learn from you and get to know who you are as an individual. They are so inspires and created an idea that you are this amazing being so they are interested in getting to know the real you. Yes there are the girls/guys who just wanna have you as a notch on their belt but relatively this would be discussed prior or at least it should be. They want to befriend and help you with your issues and relate to you in some way. They feel attached to you so it’s up to you to place your boundaries firmly and not let anything get muddled up where lines are crossed and people can get hurt. Sometimes people can get hurt because they think it’s possible to be something more than a tour plaything.

3. Groupies can SAY No. Coming backstage does not relinquish any personal right to their bodies and make them your hole to fuck. It doesn’t matter if she’s drunk and giving you screw me eyes all night. If it comes down to it, and even in the middle of it, if she says no fucking stop. I know it’s confusing but feelings can change at any point of a night. Intimidating or pressuring a girl to get you off makes you an asshole whether she’s a groupie or not. Bottom line of she looks like she doesn’t wanna do it and you have to push it on her you leave her the fuck alone. You are not her keeper and you must respect people. A fan loves you enough to want to get close and follow you I believe they deserve not to get hurt.
