Hawk Eyes are teasing a new album, which is good news for my love of riffsHere's one from their previous LP.

Are they the chaps that did the Mutation stuff with Ginger Wildheart? That was gloriously heavy and riffy.

Paul appeared on the first couple of albums (he sings the "Let's build a wall 'round the M25..." bit of Compass Point, and IIRC he can be seen on the video of Mark E Smith's visit to the studio during the recording of Error 500), and I think one or two of the other lads may have contributed some guitars, too.  Those albums sound incredibly coherent considering the sheer amount of personnel involved (Denzil's the person to appear on every Mutation song as far as I'm aware).

This article https://www.loudersound.com/news/metals-most-interesting-voices-are-all-female-and-its-about-time pointed me to the new Venom Prison - Uterine Industrialisation modern death metal - excellent. Get. Them. Riffs.
It also mentions Afraid of Water by Blood Command which is an anthem and much better than anything else I've heard by Blood Command - can't wait for their new one.

What else? fucking Let Them Grind - Big Business is what else. Sounds like Baroness but shorter and goes right to the point.

The author of that article co-hosts a weekly alternative music podcast called Riot Act which is worth a listen.

Thanks! I listen to that every week. I'm interested in where the rest of you get recommendations for this kind of thing. Spotify's spooky algorithms are very, very good at generating lists of new stuff - but what else is out there?

Haven't used it for a while but last.fm is great for discovering new stuff. I usually just flip through Metal Hammer in Smiths for new releases now, signing up to mailing lists and following bands on facebook makes finding new stuff easier too.

Well I'm enjoying the new Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard record right now.

Also I have finally got around to listening to Sleep's latest, which is no massive departure from anything they've done before but is decent enough. And there is a song on it called Giza Butler.

Youse all don't like Dream Theater, I bet...
I listened to the first few tracks and it's surprisingly okay from a band I think went right off the boil nearly twenty years ago. quite heavy riffing. more authentic-feeling then they've been for decades. but still a bit all yeah this is fine but WHAT'S THE POINT

the astonishing though. fucking astonishing more like. that no one would tell them how incompetently self-indulgent and boring it all was

Ooooh. Mates of mates. Saw them a lot when they were still called Chickenhawk.

I'm in this old video. Lots of Leeds music bods in it. I am the zombie that attacks Katie from Sky Larkin.

He's always been their vocalist. (EDIT - well, since 2002)
