Tuesday June 22, 2010 New Music

Danzig - Deth Red Sabaoth
Danzig hasn't had any terribly impressive musical output since Danzig 4, but I streamed Deth Red Sabaoth in it's entirety yesterday (and you can do the same here) and was impressed with what I heard. Definitely a return to the feel of the first four albums, so if you are a fan of those, then you should do yourself a favor and check this one out.

Clint Eastwood - Rawhide's Clint Eastwood Sings Cowboy Favorites 
Apparently at some point during the '60s, Clint Eastwood recorded a country & western record. A young Clint Eastwood singing country? Don't even pretend like you aren't at least a little bit curious.

Eminem - Recovery
Much like his hard rock counterpart Marilyn Manson, Eminem has lost most of his shock appeal which was a huge part of his charm when he first came out. His last two albums, Relapse and Encore, were both pretty mediocre and forgettable, but I'm certainly rooting for a comeback album out of him and want to hear this in case it is one. Doubt it though.

Kele - The Boxer
I like Bloc Party a lot, so curious to hear the debut solo album The Boxer from their lead singer Kele.

Vince Neil - Tattoos And Tequila
The chances of this mostly covers record by Motley Crue lead singer Vince Neil being any good are fairly slim, but as a long time Crue loyalist, I'm willing to give Tattoos & Tequila a shot or two. (See what I did there? Tequila. Shots. Get it?)

Ozzy Osbourne - Scream
Ozzy's last album Black Rain was offensive in its terribleness and I don't have high hopes for Scream either. That being said, Ozzy has so many classic albums under his belt and his last solo record is the only one I don't like, so you simply can't count him out just yet.

The Roots - How I Got Over
The Roots have consistently put out quality albums throughout their career and I assume How I Got Over will carry on that tradition.

Various Artists - This Comp Kills Fascists Volume 2
A compilation of grindcore, extreme hardcore and power violence bands curated by Scott Hull of Pig Destroyer and Agoraphobic Nosebleed called This Comp Kills Fascists Volume 2? And it is being put out by Relapse Records? Yes please.

Yakuza - Of Seismic Consequence
Heavy metal and saxophones might be the new chocolate and peanut butter and Yakuza were on to this idea well ahead of other bands. The problem was that their albums just weren't that great. By all accounts, Of Seismic Consequence is a completely different story and a huge leap forward. Stereogum has recently given away two MP3s from this album (grab "Be That As It May" here and "Stones And Bones" here) and if they are any indication of what the album as a whole will sound like, then this could very well be one of the top metal releases of 2010.
