Time to kick off 2019 with the brand new face-melting full-length record by Bazooka. Athens' basement punks Bazooka have followed-up their 2017 raw fuzzed-out 12" EP Zougla (Jungle) with Zero Hits, out via Inner Ear Records.
If Ahristi Genia (Useless Generation) surprised everyone with the directness of Greek lyrics and Zougla (Jungle) made clear the band's intention to move forward and experiment, Zero Hits is determined to sweep everything away and definitively and irrevocably confirm that we are dealing with a great band.
From the Dionysian "Ela (Come)", the characteristic wind instruments in "Keno (Void)" and "Filaki (Prison)" to the Stoogesque guitar and saxophone sounds in the autobiographical "Vradini Vardia (Night Shift)" and the psychedelic 60's "Adiafores Maties (Indifferent Glances)", Zero Hits presents Bazooka more fresh and dynamic than ever, making the title of the album sound totally ironic. more
The surviving members of the Wisconsin Death Trip era of Static-X (Tony Campos, Koichu Fukuda, Ken Jay) have announced that they will head out on a North American tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album, with a series of shows in memoriam of Wayne Static.

This led to reports that former longtime members Cristian Machado (vocalist), Ahrue Luster (lead guitar) and Diego Verduzco (rhythm guitar) had departed from the band.
However, one day later, the three aforementioned members have dismissed this claims of departure and have stated they will continue as a trio with their own version of the band.

Singer/songwriter and Atlanta's jack-of-all-trades Butch Walker recently shared his cover of Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger". North American listeners may have noticed snippets of Walker's rendition being included in commercials for RAM trucks interspersed with Rocky Balboa-isms throughout the advertisement.
Said Walker about the song, which he had recorded several years ago: "I loved Rocky when I was a little boy. It was such a powerful movie that made this underdog feel like I could make it, no matter what adversity was thrown in my face. I still remember when I left my little town for L.A. to grab that tiger's tail.
Older guys in bands were telling my 17-year-old ass 'You'll never make it. There's too much competition. Stay here and be happy you're playing cover songs in clubs six nights a week...'
Nah, I'm gonna make it. I'm gonna make it in spite of you. So, here's a little cover I recorded of 'Eye of the Tiger' several yea ...more

Canadian multi-instrumentalist Devin Townsend has officially released new details on his upcoming album, Empath. This is a direct quote from his recent Facebook post:
" Over the past few years, the success that Devin has slowly worked for has fortunately come with the power to control his own creative destiny. The recent successes with the DVD from a sold-out Royal Albert hall, or his 2012 ‘Retinal Circus’, or last year’s ‘Ocean Machine’ live DVD with the Orchestra and Choir of State Opera Plovdiv has put him in a position where with the new album ‘EMPATH’, he will once and for all define himself as a musical force outside of any particular genre classification.
On this album Devin has decided to see what would happen if all the styles that make up his current interests were finally represented in one place. To finally shake the fear of expectation, and just do what it is he was meant to do creatively, EMPATH, true to the name, is about ...more

But if I can do anything with my opportunity, and say thank you to Dr. Martin Luther King for sacrificing your life so that I can have a microphone … that’s the least I can do.”
