2020 ain't all bad...we now have new Bungle...now with more Scott Ian and Dave Lombardo!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PMz0frVKkc

That's the release (for charity). I missed that they did this live a few months back: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfSDCvVvQqc

Got to see them at the Warfield (where I had seen them 20 years ago) right before everything shut down.

Bungle was in heavy rotation when I was unloading trucks, the older guys hated it but they weren't the boss  DRILLING AND MANLINESS My previous supervisor was a self-titled disc fan and I was more into Disco Volante.

Though my favorite YT clip of them is when they covered a favorite from my younger life as a Dr Demento fan, the incomparable Existential Blues: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pophXFPSmc0

Overall Disco Volante is my favorite beginning to end album of theirs, but California has some of their best songs. For the shows they were doing this year they were playing The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny in pretty much its entirety.

Side note, but of the non-Patton side-projects I'm also a big fan of Secret Chiefs 3 (Trey Spruance and a large rotating group of members) and have seen a number of their shows over the years. Their live performance of Exodus is always a highlight.

Apocalyptica has been doing quite a few "stay at home" concerts.   Anyway if you were somehow living under a rock and never had a chance to listen to these guys (like I was until three years ago), you need to check them out.  Astonishing what they do with Cello's and a drum set.  The depth of music is amazing IMHO and the sound completely unique.

I saw them open for Manson on the Antichrist Superstar tour, but the acoustics were so bad (and they got stiffed by the engineer imo), it was hard to get into, even though I love the cello.

Every now and again I stumble across a little gem on the customs forge. Straight out of 70s sludge, it's Dopelord with The Witching Hour Bell. Just some nice heavy molasses with a big slice of Ozz-like vox.

I'm a huge fan of isolated tracks. Someone did a compilation of Steve Harris isos (isoes?) that is simply epic.

Steve Harris has always been just fucking insane. One of the great things about Iron Maiden's songs is that you don't even need the iso to hear that.

I read an interview with him back in the day and one of the things that struck me was his comment that one of the reasons why they have such a signature sound (this was the late 80s) was that the songs  were written on the bass where as most metal bands write songs based around a guitar riff.

Anyway Steve is awesome

I heard an interview with him back in the 80s where he was asked about his gallop and he coyly smiled and said he just had a little trick. So I started getting a wee bit obsessed about that, since I learned his triplets as 3-finger and I knew he was using 2 for the gallop. It worked out for me, because he's using a kind of drag that is very similar to how I play a 3-finger triplet. Also I've always played very heavy on the strings, he is fully bringing his footie form into his playing.

The full triplets are still tough, but he puts in a lot of eights over triplets (I think, I'm rusty on theory. He's only playing 2 of the three tripletted eights), with the drums playing the full triplet (or ghosting with 2 eighths so they both overlap to sound like triplets).

I also feel he got a lot more organic about it when Nicko joined. I approach those later lines a bit more like a ZZ Top line, where I just zone out and let the drummer lead the groove.

One of the best things about dropping from a 5-piece to a 4-piece was being able to bring the bass up to par in the mix, like my influences tended to (Maiden, Rush, Sabbath) rather than the more common buried bass mix of the time (cough Metallica). Also, I was previously the lead and was used to cranking the shit out of my amp anyway :D

So yeah Steve Harris is awesome.

Um, watching guys go all metal on the cello like that was alone worth the few minutes I spent viewing that video.  The music is kinda interesting, I might have to see how it sounds in the real world.

Watched 10 or so minutes.  I think it is very cool in a thinking outside of the box approach to metal, but to be perfectly honest the music itself does not move me much. Maybe if they were channeling Godflesh instead of late 90's Megadeth I might feel differently.   Gah I am a jerk.... just turned 48 and I think I just have to admit to myself I am fucking snob when it comes to metal  Ohhhhh, I see.

JFC Danny Carey, Les Claypool, Bill Keliher jamming Rush? (With the singer of Coheed&Cambria and a couple dudes from a band I've never heard of outside of these pandemic jams)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fULwDbZ4iSU

I'd love to see Carey, Claypool and Kelliher in more jams together!

Those 3 really had their stuff together for this, Kelliher got the guitar tones extremely close and everything (most artists don't do this well when covering).

I guess those two non-essential clowns were the ones putting it together, which is why I've seen their name pop up so much with these jams.

They were truly non-essential, though.

NINGEN ISU. Serious Japanese metal. I had no idea but it seems like these guys have been doing their thing for almost 30 years and are only now getting some recognition commercially.

with Dave Lombardo and Scott Ian

I'm not even into thrash much anymore but this takes me right back to the band room in 1986.

I'm enjoying the new disc, though I don't care for their covers.

How about an old Slayer demo. I love friggin boom box level sound, I can picture our old shitty practice room filled with weed smoke, beer bottles, and country girls.

TECHNOBOY 'Catfight' - Videoclip by Renč Rausch

A few weeks ago this cool and crazy german artist contacted me cause he wanted to make a videoclip of one of my songs.... Mister Renč Rausch (www.renerausch.de), a young videomaker with a passion for hardstyle, delivered his vision of my latest track (Catfight) on a 'videoclip-translation': have fun and have a look at it!! It's super!! :-D

I love listening to Jeff’s leaked tapes. They’re so different than what the songs ended up being and he had so many creative ideas (some quite bad), all the while recording onto a boombox and giving no shits about the fact that he couldn’t sing. It’s pretty much my recording rig setup ca 1996.

That's how we did both song demos and actual demos. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of live shows and demos of my band floating around somewhere, our singer used to get high and give them away undecided

The best were the ones of us arguing over stuff like composition for a half hour between songs and forgetting to stop the tape.

They have continued in the same vein with Thoughts and Prayers, Babies in Cages, Grievance Merchants (about Incel), and even a cover of the Ramones The KKK Took My Baby Away  DRILLING AND MANLINESS 

They are wearing their colors on their sleeves.  I love this band only seen em live once but man they were good.  I love all of their music but they have been on fire the past few albums.

Hell to the Liars

Hell to the liars

Hell to the best of us
Here's to you and me

Hell to the righteous ones
Here's to them
The grey-suited walkers
Prestigious men

Here's to the things you love
Here's to those you fight enough
Hell to the rest of us
Here's to the things you love
Here's to the things you love

Those who are born with love
Here's to you trying
And I'm no better than those I judge
With all my suffering

Hell to the liars
Here's to you and me
I look way above us
Seeing no one free

Here's to the things you love
Here's to those you fight enough
Hell to the rest of us
Here's to the things you love

My favorite Maiden (well, Bruce) cover guy is this guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eS389S5-YQM&ab_channel=RaphaelMendes Maiden definitely has a "Journey option" if they want it.

In music news, Dave Rawlings and Gillian Welch have a new album out, just a mic in a room type thing, which is where they excel. After recently watching the 'country' music awards...it's nice to get a hot slab of actual country music.
