Read the full statement from the band members and Josh himself. We wish him luck and many new, exciting adventures.Text was taken from http://officialneurosis.blogspot.com/2012/11/neurosis-begins-new-chapter.html
As of today, after much thought and discussion, visual projections as we have presented them over the last 20 years will no longer be part of Neurosis live shows. We are going to begin the process of reinventing our live presentation. This process will begin at zero, allowing the music to speak for itself and lead us where it may. Whatever form or however long this may take is unknown. This also signals a parting of the ways with our visual artist of the last twelve years, Josh Graham. Read the rest of this entry
Renegade outfit called COJONES have a new record out!
It’s called ”Bend To Transcend” and will smash your face in. These Croatian monsters of heavy riffing and epic choruses are set to conquer your ears once again. Three years after their ”Sunrise” debut they made a step up in crafting their music. Slightly moving away from the ”desert/stoner” genre, ”Bend To Transcend” is a full blood rock record. Aforementioned influences are still present, but wrapped up in totally contagious melodies. You will be sitting tight and listening closely throughout the whole record.
Lo Sound Desert is a documentary by Joerg Steineck about Californian desert rock. The film provides an intimate view on the scene’s past and progress, narrated by some of the main protagonists: JOSH HOMME, BRANT BJORK, MARIO LALLI, SCOTT REEDER, NICK OLIVERI, ALFREDO HERNANDEZ (MEMBERS OF WELL KNOWN BANDS LIKE QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, KYUSS, FATSO JETSON ETC) – TO NAME A FEW.

DUST STORM WARNING is a four piece, fuzzy/desert/heavy rock outfit, formed in 2010. Hailing from Lecce, the South of Italy. They are the part of the flourishing italian and european, let’s called it the ‘stoner’ scene [God, I hate that term]. Side by side with many bands from Italy, Greece, Germany etc., they want to find piece of their own space. With the support of Acid Cosmonaut Records we wish them to make it happen.
Their debut delivers songs about coyotes, spaceships and sand dunes. Something we could expect from the desert/stoner rock band. Packaged in a beautiful digipack and some serious production, DUST STORM WARNING is on the way of self exploration through their own anthems. As a relatively young band sometimes it can be a cliché for them of songs going to a direction that has been pawned before. On the verge of influences such as UNIDA, KYUSS, FU MANCHU, SIXTY WATT SHAMAN, LOS NATAS and similar warriors.
But, still they maintain to put their own signature on top of it. ”Outrun” opens the album in a way it should be. Groovy, heavy and with an upbeat which makes you wanna go and drive your motorcycle as fast as you can. Vocals are really reminiscent to those of John Garcia but with more gruff attitude to it. Oh, and there’s that ending riff in the song which is so addictive [and short] that you’ll repeat it back and forth. Even though the album is 11 songs long, there are 3 instrumentals which prove these boys are capable of further development of their sonic and playing possibilities.
Pay attention to “Dune,” “Sherpa” and “Wasteland.” There’s enough blues inflicted melodies that’s gonna make you visit the crossroads yourself. Whole lotta going on as same as South American brothers in music arms are going for [referring to a flood of awesome bands]. Vast and endless spaced out searching and soul questioning. They have a good start. Fine record with deep and nice production to it. Professional from any angle looked at. There’s no doubt DUST STORM WARNING are pretendors for the fuzz heavy desert rock throne. If they maintain the path chosen , I think the next one will be the BOMB!
Seminal rock heavyweights of Clutch will release their new laboratory baby in march. The name of this one is ”Earth Rocker”. After the release the band will head on full world tour, starting with UK than headline United States including Canada. By the words of the vocal beard himself Neil Fallon, the album is more like to be in the vein of their Blast Tyrant phase plus songs are more faster and concise. Probably a mixture of all of the band’s albums as well. Read the rest of this entry
