The Doom in Us All

Dark Compass - Thu, 03/17/2016 - 12:08

The Doom in Us All is a compilation tribute album to Black Sabbath. Check out the stream here.

The Doom in Us All: A Tribute to Black Sabbath by Ted Kirkpatrick

Some renditions of Sabbath tunes here with some fairly well know people singing and playing.
WAR PIGS features Chris Jericho (Fozzy) on vocals, and Scotti Hill (Skid Row) on lead guitar

LORD OF THIS WORLD has Trevor McNevan (Thousand Foot Krutch) – vocals, Bruce Franklin (Trouble) – lead guitar

INTO THE VOID the dulcet tones of Corey Glover (Living Colour) on vocals

ELECTRIC FUNERAL has Eric Wagner (The Skull) on vocals

CHILDREN OF THE GRAVE features Tim Ripper Owens (Judas Priest) singing, and Karl Sanders (Nile) on lead guitar.

I will miss Sabbath – they say their current tour is their last (hence calling it The End), but never say never.

The Emerald Armada: This House

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 03/17/2016 - 09:00

Emerald ArmadaTo properly celebrate St. Paddy’s, we present The Emerald Armada, reportedly brought to life in Belfast, Ireland six years ago to create music about all of life’s little inspirations. Since this time frame the quintet has toured throughout the UK and Ireland supporting favorite acts such as Frightened Rabbit, Villagers, and Admiral Fallow. Today’s track was released on July 13 this past year, although this past week we luckily ran across it over at Soundcloud. The band has three EP releases which are available for purchase via their BC link below, notably, “Five Beating Hearts“, “Hearty Laughs & Warmer Hearts“, and a self-titled EP.

The Emerald Armada will be playing at their 5th annual St Patrick’s Day show at the McHughs Basement, Belfast tomorrow, Friday the 18th of March.


This House HypeMachine

The Cult: Hinterland

Dark Compass - Wed, 03/16/2016 - 17:00

I’ve always loved The Cult, and even before then, The Southern Death Cult gave me a glimpse on what they wanted to achieve.

This is their new offering, off their anticipated new Album out in April called The Hidden City. Astbury and Duffy still have the magic to produce some thought provoking and memorable tunes.

They’ve finish a rather small UK tour and are starting a bigger US tour:

  • Mar 18 – Austin City Limits at the Moody Theater (Midnight) – Austin, TX
  • Mar 19 – Brady Theater – Tulsa, OK
  • Mar 20 – Steifel Theater – Salina, KS
  • Mar 22 – Anthem at Hard Rock Casino – Sioux City, IA
  • Mar 24 – Mill City Nights – Minneapolis, MN
  • Mar 25 – House of Blues – Chicago, IL
  • Mar 26 – The Fillmore – Detroit, MI
  • Mar 28 – Taft Theatre – Cincinnati, OH
  • Mar 29 – Hard Rock Live – Northfield, OH
  • Mar 31 – Casino Rama – Rama, ON
  • Apr 03 – Foxwoods Casino – Mashantucket, CT
  • Apr 05 – Shubert Theater – Boston, MA
  • Apr 06 – The Paramount – Huntington, NYY
  • Apr 08 – Electric Factory – Philadelphia, PA
  • Apr 09 – Wellmont Theater – Montclair, NJ
  • Apr 10 – The Fillmore – Silver Spring, MD
  • Apr 12 – Variety Playhouse – Atlanta, GA
  • Apr 14 – House of Blues – Orlando, FL
  • Apr 15 – Mahaffey Theater – St. Petersburg, FL
  • Apr 16 – The Fillmore – Miami, FL

I know they are originally from Bradford, and maybe just a few dates in the UK was not enough, there’s been some criticism about that.

They are now established in America, having broken it when they released  Electric and Sonic Temple, in quick succession I thought with it’s “Mercan” Rock sound, that put Duffy firmly in his comfort zone, as well as Astbury into his American Indian phase.

I say phase, but it’s always been there with Moya from Ian’s  band Southern Death Cult and their only  real release, then Dreamtime, and again on Rain from Love, still my favourite LP after all these years.

It’s been a rocky road for Ian and Billy, many times have they broken up, done other things, but I think, from what I’ve read, they are firmly attuned together, bringing the best out in each other.

If Hinterland is just the tip of the Iceberg from this album, I look forward to, maybe, making it my new favourite.

Tall Ships: Words Are Pegs Upon Which We Hang Ideas

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 03/15/2016 - 12:00

Tall ShipsTall Ships, originally from Falmouth but now living in Brighton, issued today’s feature via one of their first EPs, which was later bundled up in the double Tall Ships EP / There Is Nothing But Chemistry Here release in 2012.

You may likely remember our first feature back in 2011 of the stellar single Plate Tectonics. We recently heard a great remix of another track via the music app Undrtone and subsequently discovered the original version over on the BSM Soundcloud page for download.

You can purchase this great bundled math rock release, in addition to several other great albums through the Big Scary Monsters Bandcamp site below.

Show 293 will be here soon!

Three From Leith - Mon, 03/14/2016 - 21:08

Show 293 is recorded and ready to go as soon as I receive a replacement copy of one of the tracks from the band’s PR. Unfortunately, the track cuts off prematurely and I somehow failed to notice it until I was mixing the show on Friday night after finishing the recording. As soon as the new version of the track arrives, I’ll replace the old one, mix the revised show down and have it up in a jiffy!

MYATB: Cosy Caravan

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Mon, 03/14/2016 - 12:00
MYATB “Understated melodic catchy guitar riffs fronted by an alt country female vocal is the signature sound of guitar duo MYATB (Me You & The Boy). Sounds like 60’s pop, americana and psychedelic surf pop. Their self-titled EP documents their intrepid lifestyle, songs like Pennypot Lane and On and On give you an insight into what it’s like to live in a class conscious society awash with social stereotyping.”

“Recorded live at Antenna Studios in London, their debut self-titled EP, be released in March of last year, captures the chemistry, raw energy and raucous charm of this alt pop guitar duo.” [bio]

One Day, After School…: Somasphere

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 03/12/2016 - 13:00

One Day, After School...Taking its name from an Arab Strap song – One Day, After School… is the work of Dean Freeman, a musician and writer hailing from Wakefield in the UK. Donations toward his newest single Somasphere, found over at the Bandcamp link below, go towards aiding Leeds Mind, a mental health charity.

Dean mentioned on his site that the first version of his excellent track Somasphere was written about 6 years ago on a particularly bad day, where he woke up and was unable to move completely bound by a mental issue and stuck in bed. Luckily he had someone strong and understanding to stand by him in this time of trouble, but mentions there are those that don’t and that’s where the good people at Leeds Mind can come in to play.

The single Somasphere, a three song release, was issued by Philophobia Music earlier this year in late January.
