Bandcamp Recommendations – 5th March 2021 #BandcampFriday

with one comment

First Friday of a new month and it’s Bandcamp Fridays. My picks from February are here

23 tracks covered by Australian heavy metal act Lord in their own style. From Iron Maiden, Judas Priest to even Kylie Minogue and Savage Garden.

Discover the doom metal scene in Russia with over 50 tracks. Looking forward to Part 2.

20 tracks of post-rock from Australia and New Zealand put together by a killer Australian label.

American black metal juggernauts are back with a much darker release.

A viscous mix of extreme metal and avantgarde unlike another I have heard before.

A mix of heavy rock tracks with ballads that showcase versatility of vocalist Sherry Khattak.

American act Haunt is at the forefront of the new wave of Traditional Heavy Metal. The band is bringing back the killer twin leads and harmonized vocals popularized by bands like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.

We spoke to the mastermind behind Haunt, Trevor William Church about starting a heavy metal band, putting Beastmaker to rest, upcoming tour, releases and more.

Andy Dowling, the bassist for Australia heavy metal act Lord. I had interview Andy for the blog in 2015. The band earlier this month released their first studio album in 6 years, Fallen Idols.

On the Horns Up Podcast, we discuss with Andy – Fallen Idols, the mix-tape nature of the album and unique release strategy that resulted in it finding a place on the ARIA Australian Artist Albums Chart and Australian Independent Music Charts.

Andy recommends bands from Australia that we should listen to and also some handy tips for bands on their social media presence.

Primitiv

with one comment

Indian death/doom metal act Primitiv are a 5 piece band consisting of members of Albatross and Hellwind. The band released their album Immortal and Vile based on tales of early man via Transcending Obscurity Distribution in February 2016.

Primitiv are releasing a live video for the track Taurus today and I premiered it on The Metal Wanderlust. The video shot to mark 5 years of the band captures their bulldozing live act.

Check it out the video and short inteview with vocalist Nitin Rajan on The Metal Wanderlust.

The mighty Iron Maiden is the focus of this episode. Animesh and Peter are joined by The biggest Iron Maiden fan in India, Nolan Lewis (Kryptos) in a debate about the seminal band, specifically their 5th and 7th albums, Powerslave and Seventh Son of the Seventh Son.

Introducing “Versus”, where one album is pitted against the other. The basis of comparison isn’t just restricted to subjectiveness, the albums should have similarity i.e. same number of tracks, a common theme, artist etc.

So which album came out on top, Powerslave or Seventh Son of the Seventh Son? Hit Play and find out. Up the Irons!

Haunt interview

leave a comment »

Heavy metal act Haunt started out as the solo project of Beastmaker frontman Trevor William Church. It is a now a band with the addition of Daniel “Wolfy” Wilson, Taylor Hollman and John William Tucker.
If Icarus Could Fly, the second album from the band is out now. The album was one of the albums I was looking forward to from this year and it does not disappoint.

Haunt are currently on tour and I managed to get an interview done with Trevor William Church. Read it on The Metal Wanderlust
