So, yeah, Arch Enemy is not typically my bag of, uh, metal cheese, but I’ll be goddamned if these two Swedish punk covers (Moderat Likvidation’s “Nitad” and Anti Cimex’s “When The Innocent Die,” respectively) don’t fucking rip.

Arch Enemy guitarist/head honcho Michael Amott: “When approached about doing the Decibel magazine flexi, I immediately knew I wanted to pay tribute to some of my earliest influences in the ’80s Swedish punk scene! ‘Nitad’ and ‘When The Innocent Die’ were recorded in ARCH ENEMY’s rehearsal space and the result is abrasive and extreme, punk as fuck!”

Seaweed - live in Chicago 1995 (from the first Warped Tour). Crazy to see how that thing began and what a monstrosity it’s become.

Sometimes a band writes a double album’s worth of tunes in between takes of recording a completely separate third album. That kind of talent is infuriating. This record rules. Ryan Adams & The Cardinals III/IV.

Beastmilk - “The Wind Blows Through Their Skulls” video. Euro tour with none other than the amazing In Solitude coming up. Obviously I’m stoked out of my mind.

Jade Tree Records has recently made their entire discography available on Bandcamp for streaming/download. One of those records is Don’t Believe, by one of my favorite punk bands, New Mexican Disaster Squad. A fucking steal at only $5, grab their Peace With Nothing ep as well for only $4. Click the pic for a link.
Most people recognize Jade Tree for their involvement with names like The Promise Ring, Jets To Brazil, Lifetime, and Pedro The Lion, but the label also released excellent and overlooked albums by other bands such as Breather Resist, Lords, These Arms Are Snakes, Challenger, etc. Check these bands out and drop a few fivers on some truly great tunes.

Excellent performance video from Savages via Pitchfork TV. The live show I saw a few months back was this good, just with more songs. Buy this band’s record. Go see this band live.

Danzig VHS. Never released on DVD. Thanks, YouTube.

"The Color Of Noise" Documentary Trailer. Speaking of Hazelmyer / AmRep, I cannot wait to finally see this. It premieres today, actually, at Third Man Records in Nashville. If I still lived in Alabama I’d no doubt drive up for it. AmRep is responsible for at least four or five of my all-time favorite records. Speaking of Alabama, it’s rad to see a little nod in the trailer to Today Is The Day’s Brad Elrod, an AL native and in my opinion the best drummer the band ever had (and they’ve had no shortage of badasses over the years).

Really cool profile on Tom Hazelmyer (Amphetamine Reptile Records), focusing on the handmade linocuts he makes for record sleeves. Makes me really miss printmaking class!
