“Zombie” (Single) by Bad Wolves

Artist: Bad Wolves
Title: “Zombie” (Single)
Label: Eleven Seven
Release Date: 1/19/2018
Genre: Alt-Metal
Rating: 4/5

The sudden and quite surprising dead of singer Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries hit a world of music fans hard since she was not only loved but also only 46 years of age. Her death followed that of the legendary “Fast” Eddie Clarke of the Original Motorhead and left music fans with the mindset of here we go again with the regular passing on of musical greats. Earlier today, I was tooling around in Spotify and saw that the band Bad Wolves had recorded The Cranberries seminal hit “Zombie” and since I had wanted to check them out I felt that this would be the perfect launching point for me. Let’s give their version of the classic tune a listen I said and from the moment it started I was down with it. There is a solemn beginning that might bring a slight Five Finger Death Punch vibe to your mind but its only there for a second as singer Tommy Vext showcases a sonic register across the main verse.

Doc Coyle Leaves God Forbid & Then God Forbid Also Ends :(

Logo - God Forbid
I must admit that this surprised me but yes, Doc Coyle posted it on his Facebook late on Friday afternoon informing his friends and followers that he was leaving God Forbid after thirteen years at the guitar. That was that we felt, and the plan was to put up a posting to wish Doc the best of luck going forward because I’ve often had the pleasure of meeting him at shows and he was a really nice guy.

Music Luminaries Share Their New Year’s Metal Resolutions for 2012: Part 3

Hello again, it’s great that you are sticking with our New Year’s Metal Resolutions for 2012 Blog Series, and welcome to Wednesday or our “third times the charm edition”. As you have seen over the last couple of days posts, we posed the inquiry to a number of musical greats about what their resolutions might be as it relates to Metal or Music on the whole. I’ve loved what we got back from them and without any further adieu, please enjoy this chapter.

Stu Block (lead vocals for Iced Earth): My New Years Resolutions for 2012 is, to broaden my knowledge to the things that are happening in my country, politically and financially. Eat healthier and work out more.

Oliver Palotai (keyboards for Kamelot & Sons Of Seasons): My New Years Musical Resolution is to continue making good music and to further kick the mainstream in the ass!

Nick Avila (bassist for Powerglove): Powerglove’s New Years Metal resolution for 2012 is to overcome our Skyrim addictions, and write and record a new Video Game album for you. We are also exploring the logistics of building a Starburst cannon, setting up a Powerglove video game metal convention, touring Japan, and entering the world beard and moustache championships. Seeing as none of us currently have moustaches, we have our work cut out for us, but with a combination of Rogaine, miracle grow, and self determination, I believe we have a good shot at failure. Cheers to failure, and Happy New Year to you all!

An Overview Of IDW Publishing’s “Eternal Descent” Issue #3

Welcome back, I am continuing and actually finishing up with the discussions about the first few issues of the IDW Published title “Eternal Descent” and since I had been out of the regular collecting mode for a few years l was not as up on this as I would have liked to be. The premise of the comic is that of an “Urban Gothic Fantasy” and it’s the brainchild of musician/writer Llexi Leon. Leon is the founder of a label called Incendiary Records and he has created the virtual band Eternal Descent to tell his stories. Over time he realized that music would not be able to deliver the stories in the same fashion as the comics and here we are. It’s an epic fantasy and mystery that pits good against evil and does so with some of the Metal world’s biggest stars as guest characters along the way. I got my hands on the first three issues of the title and offer up some overview on each of them along with some cover art. This is the summary of the third issue. Enjoy.

Issue #3: Loki starts off the action by taking over the mind of an as yet unnamed Rocker but it’s obvious he is a member of the Power Metal band Firewind. More clues unravel about the mysteries of Lyra Constance who now seems to be travelling with Sirian in order to make more sense about her past and present. The two meet up with guitarist Gus G. in order to help out their singer Apollo (who was the victim at the stories opener). Some magic guitar from our Metallic Angel helps the band to get back onstage and smite the demons with fire, lightning and other powerful energy bolts. The crowd merely thinks they got one hell of a light show during the Firewind gig. The adventure continues.

An Overview Of IDW Publishing’s “Eternal Descent” Issue #2

I got my hands on the first three issues of the title and offer up some overview on each of them along with some cover art. This is the summary of the second issue. Enjoy.

Issue #2: Picking up immediately where we left off in issue #1, we find out that Lyra is also something special and appears to be “demon-like” but scared and confused about this being the case. She escapes and now Sirian must track her down and get her the help she requires. We also learn that she is the missing singer of a very popular Metal band and that she was supposed to be headlining over a God Forbid show. Their cancellation makes the GF guys headline and soon the demons take over and start up their usual monkey business by turning the audience members into zombies or monsters or whatever they were supposed to be. Guitarist Doc Coyle gets possessed until he is rescued by Sirian and then together the pair dispatches the demons with a vengeance. Through it all Sirian tells Doc that he is dreaming. The concert portion of the story also makes use of the God Forbid lyrics from the tune “Into The Wasteland”.
