Kiss The Gunner's Daughter - Still Here
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! Why are these guys not signed? Kiss The Gunner's Daughter have nailed it with the single Still Here from their upcoming album which is to be released Summer 2012. I'm gobsmackingly in love with this track. It bobs and weaves between the emo metal of Staind, the killer guitar riffage of Savage Messiah, the intensity of Godsmack, and bitchen Alice in Chains harmonies. It's no surprise these guys are from Seattle, long the bastian of unique and inspired music. Kiss the Gunner's Daughter sports Kelly Murphy on drums, Nick Sundesten on bass, Josh Perry nailing some totally bitchin' guitar, and Sean Ingalls providing the chills on vocals. Still Here reaches into your synapses and rips your heart out. It's dark and broody yet killer head banging goodness. Still Here is an amazing composition. There are so many shades to this song. The harmonies are amazing, the drumming is hard driving, the guitar is metal at it's finest. The band has only been around since 2010 but I'm putting my money on the fact that they are going to blaze a train all across the USA with their killer brand of metal.
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.
