Wizard Rifle Album And Tour News

Wizard Rifle Album And Tour News

Portland, OR noisy metal duo Wizard Rifle who will release their 3rd album on 30th August through Svart Records, are streaming new track ‘Rocket To Hell’.

The band say –

“This sonic stew encompasses all the usual elements of Wizard Rifle: gut-punching, down-tuned sludge punk riffs interwoven with psychedelic overtones and triumphant builds with vocal harmonies and dual yells. Lyrically the song is much like a hangover from a thousand-year orgy of global greed. It deals with the shortcomings of mankind and the individual in the face of the apocalyptic consequences of its self-created extinction. Take the ride; strap in and blast off to this seven-minute rager.” Continue reading →

Bottlekids Release 25 Days Video

Bottlekids Release 25 Days Video

“We wanted to make a video representing some of the shit gigs we have done in the past. Even though on paper a lot of them weren’t exactly great we always managed to have a decent night and a few beers regardless. We needed someone to play that one person in the audience and we were so buzzing to get Jimmy in the video, he is a local legend in our town and to see him still throwing those shapes at 80 years old is incredible. We just put some beers in front of him and let him loose and he absolutely nailed it.”

Quick Questions With Crejuvent

Quick Questions With Crejuvent

Refusing to be subjugated by the conventions of social construct and confused by the identity of the world around him, musical mastermind Freddy set out to write the deubt EP for Extreme Metal project Crejuvent, out on 1st July 2017!

Having played for and produced countless acts across the country (Novacrow, Exhumation, Tiger Punch, Kryocell, and Tasered to name a few), Freddy started Crejuvent as a way to purge himself of all the musical ideas that arose from all his previous band experiences.

The result is a perfect blend of everything that’s great in extreme metal. Continue reading →
