Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 39

This week, we at the MetalUnderground.com Official Podcast are proud to present two fresh songs by Letters To The Blind, a brand new self-described “hybrid metal” act from Dayton, Ohio.

Letters To The Blind began as a long-distance recording project in 2011 between vocalist Chaz Bond and guitarist Blaine Gordon - former members of a band called BioGenesis - when the latter was living in Florida. The group was officially formed when Gordon returned to Ohio this past summer, and rounded out with drummer C.J. Jones and bassist Randy Walton.

Letters To The Blind play an invigorating mixture of melodic death, technical, and progressive metal, and elicits comparisons to Canada’s Into Eternity and Sweden’s Evergrey. The songs “Letters To The Blind” and “Creed Of Honor” (heard at sign-off, so stay tuned) receive major thumbs up from co-hosts Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) and Mike Smith (OverkillExposure), minor flaws aside.

Then Kevin examines a recent controversy involving accusations of stolen artwork, this time by Los Angeles melodic hardcore act The Ghost Inside. Some are claiming that the quill pen on the cover of the new album “Dear Youth” bears too close a resemblance to a similar image on the cover of The Dillinger Escape Plan’s “One Of Us Is The Killer.” [2013] A ripoff on the level of the recent Avenged Sevenfold - Overkill fiasco, or the simple use of a common motif? Tune in for Kevin’s opinion, as well as his review of “Dear Youth” itself.

Finally, Mike offers his extensive, detailed reaction to Machine Head’s new monster “Bloodstone & Diamonds,” the Bay Area metal giants’ eighth studio album and debut on Nuclear Blast Records. Full disclosure up front: as a confirmed “Head Case,” he’s crazy about it, but it took a few listens for him to get there. Stay tuned to find out why.

Party Smasher Inc. Interviews Brent Hinds

Party Smasher Inc. - the musician / artist / photography site created by Dillinger Escape plan's Ben Weinman - has released a new video interview with Mastodon's Brent Hinds, which can be seen below. Party Smasher also comments:

"Mastodon started in 1999; a couple of years after the Dillinger Escape Plan. Fifteen years later, Brent Hinds and Ben Weinman surprisingly still bear each other enough to start a brand new project together as GTO, the Giraffe Tongue Orchestra.

"For this 1-on-1 between the two, Brent Hinds recollects how he was just listening to 'devil music' for his parents before he became one of Satan's worst rejects himself a few years later with Mastodon, and the upcoming GTO. " More...

Mads Mikkelsen Talks Horror, Rock, And More

Party Smasher Inc. - the new musician / illustrator / photography site created by Dillinger Escape plan's Ben Weinman - has released a new video interview with actor Mads Mikkelsen, in which he discusses horror movies, classic rock, and more. Check it out below, and Party Smasher also comments:

"Mads Mikkelsen is the Danish actor currently killing it (literally) as Hannibal Lector on the hit show Hannibal. Perhaps it was his bloody eyed role in the James Bond film Casino Royale, that showed us just how creepy this guy could be. What most people don't know, however, is that he was originally a gymnast and dancer. The guy can KICK!

"Check out this one-on-one with Elliot of Little Punk People where Mads talks about his love for classic rock, horror movies, and getting over the nerves of playing one of our generation's most iconic villains." More...

Bein Weinman Launches Party Smasher Inc.

Party Smasher Inc. has finally unveiled it's online destination here as a one-stop portal for musicians, photographers, illustrators, fashion designers, and industry mavericks of all stripes.

The shared principle that unites this otherwise diverse collection of contributors and curators is simple: self-determination. Party Smasher Inc. exists to enable likeminded cultural saboteurs to empower themselves with the DIY spirit.

“I was well into my twenties, with a college degree and a corporate job, playing music with no intention of generating money or some massive fanbase,” explains Party Smasher Inc. founder Ben Weinman, best known as the guitarist of The Dillinger Escape Plan. “Before I had even realized it, I was making 100% of my living creating art. How did this happen? Because we ignored the ‘rules.’ It wasn’t until I started living my artistic life with that mindset that I became a responsible creator – one who could move people through honest expression. And that is what Party Smasher Inc. is all about. We are here to celebrate the artists that are following their own path, undeterred by the trends.”

The following press release was also issued about the new site: "The battle-hardened creative industry collective behind Party Smasher is made up of visionaries from the full spectrum of artistic disciplines. All of them built their reputations with a combination of talent, presentation and workaholic fervor. More...

The Dillinger Escape Plan Releases New Song

The Dillinger Escape Plan has released a new video clip for the song "Happiness Is A Smile," which can be seen below, and the band also comments:

"So we wrote a song. Rather than wait for a new album, and try to figure out how to make it make sense as part of a group of other songs that would be written later, we recorded it instantly, so it could be captured as it's own statement.

"We pressed it on a limited edition 7" vinyl, in a quantity of 500(never to be pressed again), and have it available on this current tour. It's called 'Happiness Is A Smile.' We've been playing it every night. Here it is.

"We haven't said this, but we've been filming every show, for something to be released in the future. Come out and be a part. Check out the rest of the dates here." More...

Ben Weinman Comments On Wrist Recovery

Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan is on the road to recovery after breaking his wrist, which caused the band to cancel European tour dates. He will be ready to annihilate the masses on The Summer Slaughter Tour starting July 19th.

Weinman states: "When the Doctor told me I broke my wrist and that this particular bone doesn't typically heal my heart sunk. Our record had just come out and we were just getting started with its promotional cycle. I would not let this stop me. I immediately set up an appointment with the best hand surgeon in NY. I told him I had to play guitar again in a month. He said, 'ok 'I'll put a screw in your wrist.' Two weeks after surgery they took my stitches and cast off and I started playing guitar again. Definitely not the most pleasant experience, but now I almost feel back to myself. I have to say that I have a new found appreciation for playing and I can't wait to see you all this summer. Now, back to my rehab." More...

Dillinger Escape Plan Cancels European Tour

The Dillinger Escape Plan regretfully must cancel the band's upcoming summer European festival and club appearances due to an injury sustained by guitarist and co-founder Ben Weinman on his right hand and wrist. He will spend June recovering.

"I'm heartbroken that we will miss these shows because we were all looking forward to them a great deal," Weinman said. "Obviously nobody likes being injured. I'm looking forward to performing on Summer Slaughter at full capacity and we will be back in Europe this fall on our headlining tour."

The Dillinger Escape Plan performed at Metallica's Orion Music & More festival over the weekend, where Metallica's Robert Trujillo was kind enough to give Ben a chair to watch and heckle the rest of his band during the set.

Dillinger is touring in support of new album "One of Us is the Killer" which debuted at #1 on the US heavy music chart. The group also recently completed a video for the album's title track which will be released in the coming weeks.

"Leaving for tour knowing that we would be performing without all members on stage isn't something any of us are comfortable with," added front man Greg Puciato. "Ben is going to take the next month to heal and we'll be ready to demolish Summer Slaughter and return to Europe in the fall with all systems loaded and ready to go."" More...
