Featured Band: Huntsmen

Facebook

Much like Dylan, Springsteen and Waits, Chicago’s Americana metal outfit, Huntsmen, continue the long standing tradition of storytelling in their music. Huntsmen just do it with volume higher and more metallic grit. The Huntsmen Facebook site, with show dates and more, is here. Have a look – and a listen – to the video for the heavy, driving tune Pyre (off the new American Scrap album) via the link below.

Featured Band – Atala

Atala Facebook

Well, this will certainly wake you up in the morning! Hard-driving Atala is based out of the SoCal desert military town of Twentynine Palms. The band’s new album, Labyrinth of Ashmedai, charges with the production talents of fellow Twentynine Palms native Billy Anderson, otherwise recognized for his work with colossal bands such as Sleep, Melvins, and Mastodon.

Atala’s homebase is located very close to famed Joshua Tree National Park (an area the band calls “a tourist trap” that other bands describe as a “serene” and “meditative” place to perform and record), but they choose to source alternative inspiration from the grittier aspects of their desert surroundings. “We feel more sullen in our outlook,” says guitarist/frontman Kyle Stratton. “Not only do we deal with weather reaching nearly 130 degrees, we see and experience the effects of true struggles – war, poverty, death, drugs, gang violence, prostitution and murder – quite often. Gun stores, casinos, churches, liquor stores, bars, wild animals and greed-based-politics just touch the surface of what our town offers. Without going into too much detail… it’s no easy life for us out here. Our music is a mirror that reflects the truth of our personal life experiences.”

Atala have performed at festivals such as Maryland Doom Fest and Holland’s Roadburn Festival, and have shared the stage with bands such as Pallbearer, Baroness, Chelsea Wolf, The Obsessed, Coven, 16, Coliseum, Green Jelly and many others. Click the link below for more info on the band and to see their videos for Grains of Sand and a Mini-Documentary + “Tabernacle Of”:. The documentary is really cool as it really shows the band in their environment and all their awesome dogs!

Your Fantasy Tune Of The Day – Rainbow/Ronnie James Dio: Man On The Silver Mountain

ronniejamesdioDio could have sung the phone book and we would have been in awe. Here he is, heading into his prime with Rainbow – and Ritchie Blackmore from Deep Purple on guitar. Later he’d go on to front Black Sabbath and then his own self-titled Dio. From that point on he switched between Sabbath and Dio right up until his death a few years ago. When asked if he’d ever go back to Blackmore and Rainbow, he declined, stating that it would be “The clash of egos heard ’round the world.”
