The Passage of Time is Ceaseless and UnstoppableJul 08, 2014
It's July! Which means we're in the midst of a... well, not so hot Minnesota Summer.
Last week we had the fabulous Maeth for Metal Music Machine's first ever live in-studio performance. Sorry we went on so late, but it was a lot of fun! They played three songs, and a lot of drums, and a lot of flute, and with an absolute bare minimum (see what I did there? BARE?) of shirts.
This week, we covered a lot of new music this year that I haven't gotten around to playing yet. New music from Every Time I Die, Floor, Dust Moth, Killer Be Killed, and more. The last one is particularly awesome, because Killer Be Killed is a supergroup featuring members of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Sepultura, Mastodon, and The Mars Volta. If that's not a stacked deck, I don't know what is.
We also played some local music, including a just-released track from CWN ANNWN (pronounced Coon Ah Noon. Oh Welsh...), as well as some awesome riffy doom from Wicked Inquisition.
Track of the Week this week? Baptized in Bud, by Cannabis Corpse, off their new album From Wisdom to Baked. You can listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivTRvnSfzbg
Cannabis Corpse has always sort of seemed like a joke band, with everything having a (pretty obvious) theme, but the truth is, they're just an awesome death metal band, and their new album especially is creative, innovative, and heavy as hell.
Tune in next week when we'll be joined with guest Flip Arkulary, who books metal bands around the Twin Cities. He'll be talking about the business side of metal, how booking works, how to succeed as an independent metal band, his upcoming metal showcase Bummerfest, and we'll even be giving away some tickets to see Black Flag (which he booked as well). Lots of fun.
