Press statement: “It is an album born of time and the ability to create
without pressure. Energized by a new creative process free of time constraints,
the band was able to do things with Requiem that the past two decades haven’t
always afforded them, such as taking additional time to experiment together or
diligently recording to analog tape – processes which unearthed newfound sonic
dimension and texture in their music.”

NME writes: “Requiem’ has brought something new to a discography that, until now,
has been an exploration of human suffering. It’s led to the band’s most nuanced record
to date.”
Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Heavy, muscular, bombastic havoc
and arrrrrggggghhhhhh howls. Familiar and fervent metallic
drones for their devoted fans.

THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN – 7 New Firecrackers From The Past Week

7 new firecrackers from the past 7 days

1. Forgotten by KORN (Bakersfield, CA)

This new single is vintage Korn. Uncomplicated nu-metal for everybody
who wants their ears to go bonkers. From their forthcoming, 14th LP
Requiem, out early next month.

Arggghhh…

2. Won’t Stand Down by MUSE (UK)

This comeback haymaker is” “about standing your ground against bullies, whether that
be on the playground, at work or anywhere.”
I was a fan of early Muse exploits (their 2004 masterwork Absolution still gives me goosebumps). Their stardom made them go a bit too artificial and predictable for my liking. But this new one roars hard with a metallic sound as big as St Paul’s Cathedral in London. Cast-iron!

Turn up the heat…

3. UZI by BLURT (Gloucestershire, UK)

The late 70s cult post-punks (Factory Records) are back and their free-jazz-punk
firework is still intact. Led by poet/musician Ted Milton the mavericks groove as hell.
Message to all young bands out there: listen and take notes.

Let’s roll…

4. Wrong Answers Only by THE STREETS and MASTER PEACE (UK)

The Streets‘ musical brain Mike Skinner and rapper Master Peace
joined forces for this easy-going hip-pop jingle.

5. Be The Hook by PAVEMENT (Stockton, CA)

Not really a new track. It’s a previously unrealized song from their Twilight Terror
album sessions (their final LP – 1999). It will be part of a deluxe reissue edition titled Terror Twilight: Farewell Horizontal’, out next April. More info here.

Get hooked here…

6. Brother The Cloud by EDDIE VEDDER (Seattle)

Eddie Vedder has his third solo album Earthling. I could swear
that this explosive single comes from a lost Pearl Jam longplayer.

Here’s why…

7. Love Is Selfish by JACK WHITE (Detroit)

Busy bee Jack White (real name: John Anthony Gillis )
gives birth to his 5th solo LP Fear Of Down in April.

Hear his acoustic lullaby track…
