Stoner metal band Beelzefuzz has issued a brief update about the band's upcoming activities, including recording of a new album this summer and some planned shows:
"Wow! Lotsa things buzzin' with the Fuzz...gearing up to head back to the studio late summer/early fall to record album number two for The Church Within Records! Also hitting the road this summer for a few shows with Blackfinger but in the meantime keep your eye out for the VINYL version of the S/T LP due out this Spring!"
For our 2013 year-end awards we included a category for best “newcomers” – those bands that released debut albums well worth hearing.
To help get you acquainted with the best new talent releasing albums you may have missed, we’ll be looking at each of the bands nominated for the “best newcomer” category by our staff. Today, writer OverkillExposure looks at Gloomball and Damnations Day:
Guitarist Björn Daigger of new German import Gloomball states, “We refer to our material simply as rock music, but you could also call it alternative metal or modern rock.” Of this variety, the rock-radio highway is annually littered with misses, but Gloomball’s debut “The Distance” is a gut-punching hit. Daigger and co-songwriter Alen Ljubic (vocals) composed seven new tracks atop four previously existing songs from the band’s demo days, tossed in a cover of Robert M. Tepper’s “No Easy Way Out” (from “Rocky IV”) for good measure, and recorded a killer record with massive crossover appeal. Ballsy, thunderous, and groovy enough for headbangers young and old, melodic and heartfelt enough for a cathartic singalong session, “The Distance” expertly captures the essence of Five Finger Death Punch, late ‘90s Machine Head (sans the rap), latter-day Shadows Fall, and even some power metal and the understated progressive brilliance of acts such as Scar Symmetry.
The first ever Doommantia compilation, "Doommantia Vol. 1," has been streaming online over at bandcamp. The anthology features over 39 bands ranging from War Injun to Bongripper, and was released to benefit Doommantia chief Ed Barnard. For those unaware, Ed has been homeless now for a couple of months but still manages to keep the Doommantia site viable online.
Ed used to have a good job until he suffered a series of two heart attacks. Those events, plus the exorbitant cost of cardial medications made paying the rent an impossibility and got him evicted from his place in Aberdeen, Washington. Now homeless, the doom and metal community has been rallying around his cause with benefit concerts and now this compilation, "Doommantia Vol. 1." All proceeds from it will help the Australian Mr. Barnard regain his self-sufficiency.
