Multicultural blues rock outfit BLUES PILLS has released the official lyric video for “Devil Man”, the title track of the band’s upcoming EP, to be released on October 18 via Nuclear Blast Records. The stunning psychedelic video was created by talented artist Tommy Antonini (guitarist for Italian post-hardcore band TASTERS), who has previously worked with such groups as BLACK STAR RIDERS, SOULFLY and REVAMP.

“Devil Man” will be available as digisleeve CD, 10-inch vinyl (available in different and exclusive colors) and digital download.

“Devil Man” track listing:

01. Devil Man
02. The River
03. Time Is Now
04. Dig In

Commented the band: “‘Devil Man’ was one of the first songs we wrote, but it’s still one of our favorites to play. It’s just a simple riff, with a good melody, played with lots of energy. The message is simple, and it’s about anyone who you consider to be your enemy!

‘The River’ is the softest and saddest song we have. The lyrics are basically about searching for answers to life’s questions.

‘Time Is Now’ is all about living in the present, and enjoying the moment. Live today!

‘Dig In’ — we tried to play with the dynamics of the song quite a bit. It showcases our delicate side as well as our heavy side. The lyrics are about living according to your own beliefs as opposed to what you are told to believe, and not blindly buying into something.”

On October 18, BLUES PILLS will play a special show for WDR Rockpalast at Crossroads Festival in Harmonie/Bonn, Germany, to be followed by a tour in November with ORCHID and SCORPION CHILD.

Mashing the sounds of legendary rock and soul pioneers such as Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, the original FLEETWOOD MAC and LED ZEPPELIN while incorporating their own, distinctive marks, BLUES PILLS put back excitement into rock music.

The band consists of Swedish singer Elin Larsson, whose unique voice captures the listeners’ ears with as much soul, blues and rock as if she’d invented the whole thing, 18-year-old French guitarist Dorian Sorriaux, who brings a whole new set of power and freshness to the table and U.S. American stepbrothers Zack Anderson (bass) and Cory Berry (drums) as the driving rhythmic force behind the overall experience called BLUES PILLS.

Remember when Behemoth said they couldn't do Mayhem Fest? I know, huge bummer! Well today, Mayhem Fest announced their replacement as well as one more band, and if you can't figure it out by the title, well then… Taking Behemoth's place on the Musician's Institute stage will be biker-rock band Attika 7, fronted by Evan …

The post ATTIKA 7 & SCORPION CHILD Added To This Summer's MAYHEM FEST appeared first on Metal Injection.

Clutch: Monarchs of Maryland

Clutch and Orange Goblin brought the riffs (and what fucking riffs!!!) to Anaheim’s House Of Blues this past weekend. Here’s Joe Daly‘s review.

In an appalling display of grotesque self-promotion, the Disneyland resort in Anaheim, California has long billed itself as “The Happiest Place on Earth,” and if screaming children, eye-watering prices and queues that move slower than icebergs constitute happiness, than their description is bang on.

On Sunday night, however, Disneyland lived up to its warranty for about 1,700 raging, oiled-up punters who descended on the Anaheim House of Blues—tucked smack in the middle of Downtown Disneyland—to experience the skull-crushing majesty of Clutch and Orange Goblin. With thousands of people milling about the shopping district in front of the park entrance, band t-shirts and mouse ears made it relatively easy to separate who was there for the gig and who was there to empty their pockets into the teeming coffers of Mickey Mouse.

Texas-based Scorpion Child call the proceedings to order with a terrifyingly potent set of swaggering, no-bullshit rock that surely earned them a legion of new fans in a frustratingly brief set. Summoning the virility of the mighty Zep with the wanton six-string excess of the Sunset Strip, the four-piece raise the bar improbably high for the next three acts—no small feat considering that the house is already close to capacity and that most of the crowd are still sober.

Lionize shoulder the splintery task of following the electric Austin upstarts, and dive right into a maelstrom of proggy grooves and gooey riffage that place them squarely in the Clutch corner of the rock and roll playground; which comes as no surprise, given that Lionize’s part-time guitarist is none other than Tim Sult, Clutch’s longtime axe-wielder.

Orange Goblin follow with a blistering campaign through their back catalogue that sees Herculean frontman Ben Ward whipping the Californians into a frothing, headbanging tangle with his massive fists clenched and arms pumping towards the rafters. They cap their foundation-shaking, forty-minute set with the one-two punch of Quincy the Pig Boy and Red Tide Rising from their superb 2012 release, A Eulogy for the Damned.

Finally, at 10:45 p.m., the headliners storm out and light straight into Freakanomics, followed by The House that Peterbilt. If journalists are prone to relying on preacher metaphors when describing frontman Neil Fallon, it is because he delivers lyrics with the fiery-eyed passion of a man whose own salvation depends on you getting on board with what he’s putting down. Howling, waving his arms and exploding into spastic fits of dancing, Neil owns the House of Blues within the first 30 seconds of the set and when they reach 2004’s The Mob Goes Wild, the crowd responds with a thunderous singalong that continues through the balance of the set.

 While showcasing much of the new material from this year’s Album of the Year contender, Earth Rocker, Clutch scatter in fan favourites such as The Regulator, Burning Beard, and Electric Worry/One Eyed Dollar, finishing the nearly twenty-song set with Texan Book of the Dead and A Shogun Named Marcus.

PREACH, BRUTHAH! [Pic by Joe Daly]

Spilling back out into Downtown Disneyland as the midnight hour passes, it is clear that right now, the happiest people in the happiest place on earth are the ones with black t-shirts and ears ringing, floating out of the House of Blues.
