06:42 - psykometal So, like a Body Count thing? :P
04:57 - 3rdWorld Dayum, Death Grips begin their latest record with a thrash hip hop track. Sounds really awful in words but they really do make it work.
04:54 - 3rdWorld I really thought it could be from the 80's but damn thats a '12 record. Nice artist but that doesn't count out Kendrick for me.
04:45 - Apothecary Which makes sense in part, as he is from Zimbabwe by birth (hence Mugabe on that album cover)
04:45 - Apothecary Ehhh... different strokes, but I'd take Billy Woods over Kendrick any day. He is does some of the BEST sociopolitical hip hop out there imo. Profound comments on the effects of imperialism and colonialism
04:42 - 3rdWorld Good alternative hip hop track. Sounds exactly like a precursor to something that Kendrick is doing. :)
01:46 - Apothecary Oh wait, we're still talking about hip hop? Ok, listen to this guy then [link] And preferably check out the lyrics as well, VERY deep and well-constructed
Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth have joined forces and are set to co-headline a tour in the U.S. and Canada in early 2015. The American and Polish death metal giants will be supported by two Swedish bands: Aeon and Tribulation. This should be a death metal rampage. Both bands are touring in support of their most recent albums.
2014 is shaping up to be a killer year for international bands touring Australia, with this tour being one of the most anticipated yet. Greeks Septicflesh and Italians Fleshgod Apocalypse, two of Europe's symphonic metal heavyweights, will grace Australian shores in May, 2014 together for the first time.
Norwegian metallers Kvelertak have announced that they will be gracing Australian shores this coming September. This will be the band's first ever Australian headlining tour, having taken to the Soundwave and Sidewave stages in 2012. The band has confirmed five shows and you can see the dates below.
Norwegian progressive black metal band Enslaved will be hitting Australian shores this June for the first time in their career. The Australian Winter Rite Tour 2013 will see the band tour throughout the nation in support of their well received 2012 release, RIITIIR with opening act Rise Of Avernus.
Dutch symphonic metal band Epica just announced their first ever Australian tour to take place in April of next year. The band will tour Australia to promote Requiem For The Indifferent, which was released on March 13th, 2012 through Nuclear Blast.
Nuclear Blast have signed the Tasmanian Technical Death Metal band devils Psycroptic. US A&R Gerardo Martinez about the signing: "We are beyond excited to be working with one of the BEST Technical Death Metal bands in the world right now. We feel the band will reach the status they deserve in a short period of time. Also the band is euphoric about the cooperation: "To say that all of us are excited to be working with Nuclear Blast is quite an understatement ? We're over the moon! Nuclear Blast has always been the pinnacle of labels within the Metal realm, and to be signed with them is a huge honour for us...and to be the first Tasmanian band to ever be on the label is a pretty cool bonus as well. The artist roster is nothing short of amazing, and for us to be added to it...well, we couldn't be happier!!"
