Music News For The Week Of September 7, 2013
This is the band that I gave you a link to sample their debut album last week. This is Midnight Black and it is a great track. I think this band is going to be huge. They have a great sound and style. Their album comes out September 16th. If you want to know more about them, you can check out their web site here: http://www.thetemperancemovement.com/
Now here is a great match up. Gov’t Mule featuring Myles Kennedy on vocals. This song is called Done Got Wise. This will be on their album, Shout, coming out on September 16th. This just shows how versatile Myles is. Apparently the rest of the rock world is finding out about how great of a talent he is and are recruiting him to guest on their records. As always Myles is amazing. Listen for yourself here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iu8EyOnh1Cg
Ghost B.C. has released part one of their documentary. It is called The Old One-Papaganda Ep. 1. You can watch it here: http://www.metalinjection.net/video/ghost-papaganda-documentary-part-1
Neil Fallon, the front man for Clutch, has cancelled their September dates and has rescheduled them for January. Fallon has a severe back problem for which he is going to have surgery.
This past week there has been some controversy going on between Sebastian Bach and Nikki Sixx. Bach claims that Motley Crue asked him to join the band back in the 90’s and Sixx says that it’s not true. Bach came Back and said he rehearsed with them and again Sixx said it wasn’t true. Bach not taking things lightly posted this video where Sixx on the Headbanger’s Ball actually mentioned that they did. Your call if you think he was helping or being asked to join. There was video but it now has been pulled don. You can research yourself to see. But it likes like he was asked to help at the very least.
Former Megadeth guitarist, Marty Friedman, is finishing up a new album that will be out in January. He claims it is very heavy, the heaviest stuff he has ever done.
Trivium has released a video for their song Strife from their up and coming album, Vengeance Falls, coming out on October 15. I like this track, the riffs and drums are fantastic. You can watch the video here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIvSXocE6YY
