Dimmu Borgir – Eonian (Nuclear Blast Records)

Aww, DIMMU BORGIR. The band that divides the black metal fan base like Donald Trump has divided America, have released their latest magnum opus “Eonian”. After “Abrahadabra”, I was really expecting something similar. I couldn’t have been more wrong. While the aforementioned album was just bland and boring, this album is the complete antithesis of that album. Black metal “pursists” are going to hate “Eonian”, and that’s too bad, because they are missing out on one hell of an album.

Jeff Martin of Blasted To Static “I wish offended people would react like fainting goats and quietly tip over.”

Headed up by the incendiary vocals of Jeff Martin (Racer X, Badlands, UFO, MSG) and fret-melting wizardry of Stu Marshall (Death Dealer, Empires of Eden), with the rhythmic talents of Rev Jones (Michael Schenker) on bass and session demigod Clay T. on drums, Blasted to Static represents an uncompromising and intense odyssey from veterans of the metal scene.

How did you first get in to music? Who turned you onto rock/metal?

I came from a family of seven, everyone listened to music or played it so I was surrounded by the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Cream. I started out playing to 8 tracks and cassettes that my brother had tons of stuff. I do believe “Tales of Brave Ulysses” off of Disraeli Gears from Cream was one of my first learn songs. Vocal wise I didn’t start till later. Not getting laid enough as a drummer had a lot to do with it. Later hearing Ian Gillan’s voice and of course Rob Halford made me want to be a singer but I really did love Tom Jones.

Bay Area blackened funeral doom collective BARREN ALTAR will release their debut full-length next month. Titled Entrenched In The Faults Of The Earth, the morose offering was captured in the summer of 2017 with Greg Wilkinson (Graves At Sea, Necrot, Vastum) at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, California and delivers five tracks of sonic desolation. Of the record’s overall theme, the band offers, “It’s a metaphysical plea for the voluntary end of all human life, pressed to plastic, and added to the ever-growing dumpster fire that is the modern world.”
