September 26, 2016: Here’s some new music from KYPCK, Superjoint, Crowbar, Metallica and Jerusalem.
KYPCK is a Finnish metal band but all of their songs are in Russian. The band’s vocalist, Erkki Seppänen, worked at the embassy in Moscow and speaks fluent Russian. “Ya svoboden (I Am Free)” is the first song from their fourth album, titled 3epo (Zero).
Superjoint, formerly known as Superjoint Ritual, returns with their first record since 2003. Caught Up In The Gears Of Application is out on November 11th and on this new track, “Sociopathic Herd Delusion”, the band picks up right where they left off almost 15 years ago.
Crowbar is set to release their eleventh studio record, The Serpent Only Lies, on October 28th. The first single is “Falling While Rising”.
Metallica just released a second track from their forthcoming album, Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. The song is called “Moth Into Flame”. It’s better than the first single, “Hardwired”, but after a few listens, the track still doesn’t kick me in the face. It’s distinctively Metallica!
JRSLM, short for Jerusalem, is from Bandung, Indonesia. They are not to be confused with the British hard rock band from the early 1970’s or the Swedish Christian rock band that formed a few years later. “Rusted Soul” is from their new EP, Cryptic Hourglass.
