"angel of retribution"

After the 1990 album, ‘Painkiller’, Rob Halford left Judas Priest and the band continued on for 11 years with the singer Tim “Ripper” Owens. Rob went on and did his own thing whether it was the band Fight, Two or band Halford. Judas Priest did two albums with Ripper during this time, but the fans were screaming for Halford and Priest to reunite. Rob had wanted that for a long time, but was too afraid to reach out (at least that is what he says in his book). However, eventually it happened. Rob Halford was to rejoin Priest and in 2003, it finally happened.

Judas Priest toured a little and then went in to the studio to record their new album ‘Angel of Retribution’. They recorded from October to December of 2004 and the album was finally released on February 23, 2005 and to quite acclaim. It went to #13 on the Billboard 200 Charts and Priest were back. Rob brought over Roy Z as the producer who also mixed and engineered the album as well. Roy Z was the guitar player in Rob’s band Halford and he produced several of those albums as well.

I read somewhere that the album artwork was a continuation of the angel from ‘Sad Wings of Destiny’. This time the angel has transformed in to steel as she is rising out of the ashes and becoming the angel of retribution. Who knows if that is true, but cool to think that it is a reference to that album.

After 11 years apart, what would the new Priest sound like was the question of the day. Judas Priest would come out and deliver a massively heavy album and usher their sound in to the 21st Century! Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, K.K. Downing, Ian Hill and Scott Travis are ready to rock.

The album opens with the song “Judas Rising” and Judas is the angel from Sad Wings of Destiny, Painkiller and this album cover. You could take it as Priest saying they were back from the ashes ready to rock the world again. The song opens with heavy guitars, double-kick drum mayhem and a massive scream from Halford announcing the return of the classic line-up. The song is immense and powerful with Halford attacking the lyrics with all his might and how Scott Travis on drums can continue the pummeling of the kick drums for that long is beyond me. The band explodes out of the gates of hell with such destructive force and the excitement is building for what is to come.

“Deal with the Devil” is a song that tells the story about the band’s story and takes you back to the Black Country where they started to the metal gods they are today. Another heart pounding song and a very catchy chorus. Not as hard as the opener and a little more melodic. This is the only song that Roy Z had a co-write on, otherwise, it is still Halford, Tipton and Downing at the helm. Towards the back half of the album and on several more songs, Halford hits some notes that sound a lot like Axl Rose from Guns ‘N Roses and I mean that in a very good way. The solo on this is incredibly fast and frantic and I think is a dual solo for Tipton and Downing. A great exclamation point on an already great song.

This might be a first for the band, a bass line opening by Ian Hill. I am not sure if they’ve done that before. The Rob scream at the beginning has been done before but to have Ian front and center is a nice change. The song is really different than what I would’ve expected. “Revolution” is probably the most radio-friendly song on the album and has a ton of Rob’s screams, a simple guitar riff and at times the song is a little cheesy, but it is catchy enough. Sometimes strange is good. A fact about that opening bass as it is actually from a cassette tape that they recorded that riff on back in the 70’s. They uploaded it to pro tools and built the song around it.

“Worth Fighting For” comes out and sounds a lot like old school Priest…well maybe early 80’s Priest anyway. A simple drum beat and Rob singing softly at the opening. A slower tempo almost a ballad, but not quite. The guitar solo is great and fitting for the song and not over-the-top. I find the song to be quite pleasant and and a nice unexpected twist in style and vibe. They are keeping you on your toes with this album.

“Demonizer” brings back the heavy and the darkness. With a killer riff to open the song and more of Scott’s double kick drum madness. The song could’ve been straight off Painkiller as it has that tone. Rob sounds great here and he sounds so menacing and evil fitting for a song called “Demonizer”. Another assault on the senses and turn it up to 11 so you get the full effect of those guitars and drums as they pummel your ears and you love every minute of it.

The next song opens with what sounds like a Van Halen riff, listen closely. “Wheels of Fire” will take you back to the ‘Screaming for Vengeance’ era and make all you 80’s Priest fans very happy as it would feel right at home in that era. It isn’t the heavy, destructive force as the beginning of the album, but you need a break form that and this one will give you all the good feels of 80’s Priest and I am good with that feeling.

Then we get a true ballad with the song “Angel”. I think this might be one of the best ballads they had done. Rob’s vocals on this might be the best of the album. His vocals are smooth at times and full of emotion and it is just him and an acoustic guitar for most of the song. It has a very melancholy tone and is actually quite moving. The bass comes in around the middle and then some electric guitars for the solo. The drums to come in towards the end and brings the full band in to play. It is a beautifully constructed song and might be the best song on the album…who am I kidding, it is the best song on the album.

The heavy is brought back with the speed demon of a song, “Hellrider”. The guitar opening is incredible and then the destructiveness of Scott’s drums come in followed by Rob’s evil vocals and the band is fire. If you are a fan of the last album with Rob, ‘Painkiller’, then this song will be right up your alley. I think my ears started to bleed from listening to this and I couldn’t be happier. It is an evil beast and a great way to end the album. Well, I say that because the last two songs are complete and utter trash so this is the end of the album for me.

“Eulogy” is up first and I guess this might be the opening to the horrific song “Lochness”, but if not, I will review as a stand alone. It is a slow tempo song but where “Angel” was emotive and done perfectly, this song falls flat and I found lacked emotion and was quite dull in comparison. The piano seems to play on with no real direction and keeps repeating the same notes over and over. Rob sounds bored and not sure how to sing it. Move on.

The final track on the album is the longest one at 13 minutes. “Lochness” is about old Nessie and I am not sure what they were going for here. Are they trying to go back to their early prog roots or what I am not sure. The song is heavy and feels very evil and there are some musical moments I like, but overall it lacks so much. The song is cheesy at times and when Rob hits the chorus, oh man, shoot me now it is so bad. I think the song is trying to be more than it can be as there aren’t enough shining moments to lift it above its dreariness. Now you know why I say the album ends at “Hellrider” (*Review from HERE ).

RUSH

 









"idem"
Year:  1974
Country:  Canada
City:  Toronto
Label:  Universal
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  8
Time:  50 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Prog Rock













Rush was a Canadian rock band that primarily comprised Geddy Lee (bass guitar, keyboards, vocals), Alex Lifeson (guitar) and Neil Peart (drums, percussion, lyricist). The band formed in Toronto in 1968 with Lifeson, drummer John Rutsey, and bass guitarist/vocalist Jeff Jones, whom Lee immediately replaced. After Lee joined, the band went through several line-up changes before arriving at its classic power trio lineup with the addition of Peart in July 1974, who replaced Rutsey four months after the release of their self-titled debut album; this lineup remained intact for the remainder of the band's career.

Ayn Rand’s novels 'The Fountainhead' and 'Atlas Shrugged' helped shape a generation, but it was a lesser-known work, Anthem, that shaped one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time: 2112 by Rush.

In this video, you’ll learn about Objectivism: Ain Rand’s philosophy of rights, man’s rational judgment, and unforced human action. (Learn more about Ayn Rand and Objectivism in our "Legends of Liberty". You’ll hear Rush paying tribute to Ayn Rand through unique lyrics and dynamite rock and roll. You’ll even be introduced to Rush’s mastermind, Neil Peart, by the most unlikely of sources: Jack Black from School of Rock.

We also talked to Matt Kibbe, President of Free the People and lifelong Ain Rand reader and Rush fan about the impact of both writer and band on his life and on each other. He tells the story of a band that dared to be different — in their musical style, in the concept of their albums, and even in the length of their songs.

Comment below with a time when you thought differently from everyone else. Were you lauded for it? Were you ostracized for it? How did that reaction make you feel? If Ayn Rand or Neil Peart were here, this much is for sure: they’d stand for your right to go against the grain.

Year:  1989
Label:  Warner
Format:  CD, 2 x LP
Tracks:  11
Time:  45 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Prog Rock















Presto is the 13th studio album by Canadian rock band Rush. It was released on November 17, 1989 by Anthem Records and was the band's first album released internationally by Atlantic Records, following the group's departure from Mercury. After the Hold Your Fire (1987) tour ended in 1988, the group members reconvened in December to decide their next step and agreed to take six months off before starting on a new album. Presto marked another change in Rush's sound, with guitar taking a more dominant role in the writing, a reduction in synthesizers and a return towards more guitar-driven arrangements.

Presto reached No. 7 in Canada and No. 16 in the United States. "Show Don't Tell," "The Pass" and "Superconductor" were released as singles from Presto; the former charted at No. 1 on the U.S. Album Rock Tracks chart.[4] Rush supported the album with the Presto Tour from February to June 1990. Presto reached gold certification by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling 500,000 copies.[5] The album was remastered in 2004 and 2013, the latter as part of the 2013 box set The Studio Albums 1989 - 2007. In 2015, it was reissued after being remastered by Sean Magee at Abbey Road Studios, following a direct approach by Rush to remaster their entire back catalogue.

LIVID

 









"compiled hatred"
Year:  2022
Country:  US
City:  Kenosha, Wisconsin
Label:  Deathwish
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  16 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Power Violence













Today I want to show you a band from Kenosha, Wisconsin. just before New Year, Livid dropped their second album “Compiled Hatred”. After detailed listening, I can say, that our guys became more brutal. Their mix of hardcore/grindcore became more wicked and furious. As usual, the main cover has a minimalistic style… but from the other side this will show you the main aggressive emotion of this full-length. Something like “hammer smashing face”, hehe. So shall we spin this LP loud?

How can I describe this album with just one word? I would use “powerful”. This duo did their best, “Compiled Hatred” really sounds dreadful. The energy of this work is so heavy and sick… It`s like you are looking at the crash test of the car, but at the same time you are in it, and you`re going to hit the wall just in a few seconds! I really like how the guys make production and the final mixing… The guitar tone is extremely dangerous, same with good old drums, drums bring a ton of groove to this record. It looks like the vocalist was really pissed off during the recording, you can really feel that, ha!
I think that Livid really took it to another level! Play this album really loud boys and girls.

SLOWER

 









"idem"
Year:  2024
Country:  US
City:  Orange County, CA
Format:  LP
Tracks:  5
Time:  40 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Doom Metal













Bob Balch from Fu Manchu here. The idea for the Slower project started around four years ago. I was teaching a student how to play “South Of Heaven” by Slayer but she was a beginner so we slowed it down. I thought that sounded cool so I tuned down to B standard and tried it. I added some drums and thought “someone in the doom community should do this and name it Slower.”

A few years later I befriended Steven "Thee Slayer Hippy" Hanford, best known for his work as the drummer in the influential Oregon punk band Poison Idea. He was backstage at a Fu Manchu show. Oddly enough I was wearing a Poison Idea shirt and he told me that my shirt sucks. I asked who he was and why he was in our backstage. He told me and I felt stupid. We started drinking whiskey and talking about music. We stayed in touch over the next year or so and during Covid I told him about my Slower idea. He asked me to send him tracks. I waited too long because the day I sent the tracks he passed away. Totally tragic. I’m glad I got to know him even for a few years. He was a monster musician with a giant heart. He will be greatly missed.

I shelved the project for a while after that. One day Esben from Monolord posted about musical collaborations. I love Monolord so I thought what the hell. I sent him some tracks and he killed it on drums. So I sent more. Then more. Shortly after that we started reaching out other musicians to get them involved. That’s how we ended up with this lineup. Everyone that contributed completely knocked it out of the park and I can’t thank them enough.

This project has been a long time coming and I’m beyond stoked on how it turned out. Without all of the players involved, Steven Hanford and my baritone Reverend guitar it wouldn’t have happened. Thanks to everyone involved and I hope you dig it! I’m a giant Slayer fan so it’s been a treat to dig into these classic songs. Hopefully we can do another record in the near future. Look out for shows because they will happen!


Esben Willems - When Bob first approached me with the idea and I heard his scratch guitars, my first thought was “This is genius”. Those iconic tracks we all know by heart suddenly unveiled an unexpected dimension. I’m really proud of how this turned out.

Peder Bergstrand - “This might be blasphemous considering the circumstances, but when Bob reached out and asked if I’d want to play bass on sludged-out Slayer covers, I had to admit some of these tracks were brand new to me.

That made the experience even more special though, hearing and playing on the Slower version first, and then comparing to the original. Bob has really transformed these songs into something totally their own, and on a personal level I feel the rest of the band’s insane performances pushed me to my most inspired playing to date. So incredibly stoked for people to hear this album.”

I notice that this album has yet to be reviewed here by someone who truly loves it--so allow me. Let me be clear: I understand that there are more reasons to dislike this album than there are to like it. It's abrasive, it's deliberately unmusical, it's completely absurd. Often the instruments are impossible to discern from one another, let alone to understand as far as melodies go. It's the kind of music that has to be heard loud in order to be understood, meaning that in order to really appreciate it you run the risk of making your ears bleed. It's not the kind of thing that can be comfortably added to a playlist and shuffled, nor is it the kind of thing that really had song-length album standouts (although I can actually think of a few I'd mention.) Basically, it's a hard sell. The ultimate hard sell.

I'm not even going to pretend that this is "the point of grindcore." There's plenty of grindcore out there that's, by and large, highly musical and rhythmically satisfying--Brutal Truth comes to mind, or even Scott Hull's other band, Pig Destroyer. What I will say, however, is that this is the point of this album, and that to have an album that is so wholly and completely designed in such a unique fashion is something that will just work for the right kind of listener. The kind of listener who likes to hear whatever the fuck you've got, but the crazier the better.

This album is just like candy to me. The album actually has an overall structure that's fairly fascinating when taken on the whole, with different sections of the album being discrete musical suites, often grouped together by style or, in some of the more challenging parts of the album, grouped together by topic of screamed vocal outburst, often with either no discernible musical backing or at least no normal musical backing. We're also treated to a chaotic suite of harsh industrial beats, a more groove-oriented section that takes cues from hardcore and features much more ordinary riffs, and many sections that can best be described as sound collages. Much of the album is noise--but it's organized noise, and there's nothing wrong with that.

It's really, really not for everybody. It's the kind of album that you just have to allow to wash over you--you're not going to pick up many clear individual riffs (although when they do come through, they're a startling relief from the chaos of the overall experience,) and you're going to have a hard time humming along with the tunes. This is grindcore at the very fringes, but there's a rewarding musical experience to be had here, it's just the kind of musical experience that comes with a lot of challenges to surmount and oddities to witness. Especially if you understand the references? It's a whole different kind of experience (*Review by WorldEater1126 ).

"agorapocalypse"
Year:  2009
Label:  Relapse
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  14
Time:  28 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:        Grindcore















Well, it does not contain 100 songs, every tune isn't a blindingly fast electro-grinder, and there are no frozen corpses stuffed with dope to found anywhere (a long distance drug runner is involved though). "Agorapocalypse", AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED's second full-length album is however a grand proclamation of the offensive and a certified face-grinder. It just happens to contain arrangements that restrict the whiz-by effect and sections that are slow enough to allow one to recognize the driver as he cruises by with middle finger thrust high into the air.

Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing depends on your degree of satisfaction with light-speed machine grind, the kind that Scott Hull and company perfected on releases like "Frozen Corpse Stuffed with Dope" and especially "Altered States of America". There has always been a fright factor to go along with the prurient obsessions inherent in those releases. There is no lack of morals-fucking here (have you seen the artwork and read the lyrics in the super cool booklet?),but the frightfulness has been tempered a bit in favor of a relatively more traditional, though no less nerve fraying, grindcore experience.

If anything, the powerviolence leanings are more pronounced, the fresh blend maintaining, if not elevating, the violence to inhuman levels. And it is not like the drum machine has been replaced either. In relative terms, the drums sound rather organic, as well as overtly grind-worthy. The drum solo included during "Timelord Two (Paradoxical Reaction)" is an intriguing touch.

So "Agorapocalypse" continues to be more of an envelope-pusher than the average grind release, not to mention taking any iota of mellow and crushing into dust, followed by a public urination on the remains. It is 13 tracks in 28 minutes; right, it's not a doom metal epic. The multi-vocalist approach makes for an even nastier affair, not the least of which is attributable to new member Kat (just listen to her peel paint over a rumbling pace on "Question of Integrity" or the pure insanity of "Druggernaut Jug Fuck"). She adds a layer of viciousness that complements vocals from Scott Hull and Richard Johnson that include moments that bring to mind Tom Araya (think about an Araya-led ANB for a moment),powerviolence belligerence, and grindcore bludgeon.

"New" or "new and improved?" Well, it is a progression, yet one that continues to leave a bloody wake. Whether it is improved depends on whether your love affair with the "old" ANB was a torrid one. Stripping away all the comparisons though, "Agorapocalypse" is obscene and extreme, which is what ANB has been about since the beginning. No amount of speed control can change that (*Review by Blabbermouth ).
