Primus - The Desaturating Seven

“The Desaturating Seven” is the overall ninth album for Primus, a band quite eccentric and unique. Rejoined by their original drummer, Tim Alexander, the past two albums seem to be adapting from popular culture, at first with a re-imagining of Willy Wonka’s soundtrack and now with an album based on Ul D’Erico’s “Rainbow Goblins” – a children’s book given the Primus treatment.

Powerman 5000 to release new studio album “New Wave” on October 27th 2017

Powerman 5000’s legacy continues to push the boundaries of rock, metal, industrial, rap, and punk to create innovative and groundbreaking releases time and time again. Their upcoming highly anticipated album, “New Wave”, hits shelves on October 27th, 2017, in digital and retail outlets worldwide.

“New Wave” is PM5K’s eleventh official release since forming in 1992 and continues the strides and success from their platinum-selling album “Tonight the Stars Revolt!” to their most recent chart-topping single in 2014, “How to Be a Human”.

Powerman 5000 signs with Pavement Entertainment and announces new studio album “New Wave”

Powerman 5000 have inked a worldwide deal with Pavement Entertainment. The new album “New Wave” marks the next chapter in the world of PM5K and the follow up to 2014's highly successful “Builders of the Future”.

According to vocalist Spider One: “We went a bit dirtier on this one. Ripped it up more than the last couple of records. One of the goals was to recreate the noise of the live show. Keep in the chaos.” On the album title, Spider adds, “New Wave? Are we a new wave band? Well, I would say that we have always had more in common with Devo than Dio”.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - The Getaway

Radio & TV exposure as well as success, especially during the 80s & 90s, could make a follower become a leader and could make anyone successful just like that. This is a few words about what happened with RHCP; even though they are not a bad act, they totally do not deserve all this fuzz around them, especially when other greater bands haven’t got even half of it.
 

Peekaboo Primate - Misanthropical

Peekaboo Primate, quite a whacky name, and their music ain’t a laughing matter either as their eccentric alt-metal borrows equally from Faith No More and System Of a Dawn and who knows what else. It’s just starts and stops randomly changing the beat quite freakishly… well there’s obvious modernism here and while everyone will be quick to brand the odd rhythms, jazz inspired, this is a little too “common”.
