First things first: any South Florida residents interested in seeing DevilDriver in Fort Lauderdale on June 18th should email your full name (matching your ID) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject DEVILDRIVER. We are hosting a ticket giveaway through the Revolution Live venue.
Last week on the Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, we reviewed a series of new full-length releases. This week, we were forced to settle for mere songs, tastes of albums soon to come.
Co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) gets things started by reviewing the new Entombed A.D. song "Bedlam Attack," off the forthcoming album "Back To The Front.” You may also know this band as Sweden’s long-running pioneer act Entombed - creators of the death metal classics “Left Hand Path” and “Clandestine,” and “death ’n’ roll” landmark “Wolverine Blues” - and Mike offers his take on the legal dispute that led to the slight name change.
Then co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) reviews the new song "Thirst," off the imminent album "From Parts Unknown” by Buffalo, New York’s eclectic hardcore punkers Every Time I Die. As with Entombed, this band has never been too shy to experiment stylistically, and Kevin evaluates the quirky evolution leading up to this current work.
Finally, we react to a bizarre international story. Poland’s Behemoth just can’t seem to stay out of trouble these days, and due to alleged “wrong visas,” the band was recently detained and deported from Russia while on tour. Though Randy Blythe’s (Lamb Of God) 2012 fate in the Czech Republic was thankfully averted, we can’t help but feel troubled over the occasional pitfalls of travel in this part of the world - and if frontman Nergal’s account is accurate, the jail accommodations were, to put it politely, less than sanitary.
