Go get some metal on! Relicseed will be rocking a very eclectic bill on March 16, at Sapnu Fabrika which is in .... Latvia! Squeee I won't lie to you - I can't read a word of it! LOL All I know is... RELICSEED are playing live and on the bill is a viking clad band that has bagpipes! Nothing like watching very large men in leathers and furs play metal bagpipes before (I am presuming) going out to rape and pillage!!!! Works for me. A good time shall be had by all!
LIFE OF AGONY A Place Where There's No More Pain Napalm Records Release: 28 April 2017
I'm a long time Life of Agony fan. They are "locals". I've seen them live in Brooklyn (although, I've seen them live more in Germany). They are a solid heavy metal band. The new album on Napalm Records is wicked groovilicious. Yes, I'm biased. But Life of Agony's A Place Where's No More Pain is gobsmackingly amazing.
The songs are harsh; I mean they are like a punch to the gut. The feels. Zomg the feels. The lyrics just make you go, 'God Damn!' (said in Sweet D's voice). There is so much to headbang or pole dance (whatever you predilection).
'Dead Speak Kindly' and 'A New Low' puts me in the mind of Alice in Chains. Ted Jensen's fingerprints are all in this pie. He worked with Alice in Chains and you can tell. This is a good thing as you are familiar with the overall tone of the music.
