The Damned Things Are Back!!! The group featuring Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die, Scott Ian from Anthrax, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley of Fall Out Boy have returned with their first new music in 9 (yes 9) years!!! Joining them this time around is Dan Andriano the bassist from Alkaline Trio. This first song released, “Cells” is from their upcoming new album, High Crimes, which will be out April 26 (via Nuclear Blast Records). I loved their debut record when it came out and saw them live and it was truly a blast to see. I’m really looking forward to the rest of this album! Check out “Cells” below!!!

Live Review: Every Time I Die at The Regent Theater

IMG_5115.JPG

This past Saturday, Every Time I Die rolled through Los Angeles and absolutely destroyed part of downtown. Riding high on their 20 Years Of Bullshit tour, Every Time I Die left their mark in Los Angeles, not just as band thats been killing it for 20 years but, as a band that has truly cemented their place among the legends of their genre. As a fan of the band for nearly 20 years, I have to say that, these gents seriously get better as time goes on. Before I get into just how good their live set was, let me begin with the other bands on the bill.

 

The first band up was Vein. This band has been blowing up as of late and the hype is real. Their 25 minute set all be it brief was intense and chock full of energy that you would expect to see at a show like this. Performing songs from their debut album Errorzone, Vein ripped through their set with precision, passion and unrelenting force. I’ve been curious to check this band out since I heard them earlier this year and they did not disappoint. I could see them seriously becoming a band that will steal the show from many bands in the near future. They have the ability to really become a force of nature if they keep on the path they are on. Vein have a sound rooted in hardcore but with shades of metal, industrial, and a slice of nu-metal (a la the first 2 Korn and Slipknot records). Watch out for Vein when they come through your town!

The other two bands on the bill Angel Dust and Turnstile brought with them a ton of energy and a good amount of the kids in the crowd were eating it up. My friend I was with and I both looked at each other countless times throughout both sets wondering what the hell we were watching. Maybe it’s our age showing through and we just didn’t “get it” or it was really that bad. I will say though that they riled up the crowd in a good way before Every Time I Die took the stage and showed these kids how it’s done.

Every Time I Die are legends. Lets just put that out there. For 20 years now, they truly have done things the way they wanted to and have continuously put out quality music. This evening was one for the books. Around 10:45 pm, Every Time I Die took the stage and for the next hour and twenty minutes, Los Angeles was owned by ETID. Their set was stunning. Compiling songs from all their 8 albums into an anthology set, was special. The amount of singing along all night from the crowd was something for the books. The diverse crowd of youngsters to the older ones made this night really represent 20 years of greatness. Songs like “Floater,” “Ebolarama,” “Apocalypse Now and Then,” “No Son Of Mine,” “Roman Holiday,” “Moor” “The Coin Has A Say” and “Map Change” were among the standouts of the set. The entire set as I mentioned was special, and I’m sure it wasn’t easy to just pick a couple songs from each album but, each choice perfectly represented each record and showed just how much the band has developed over the years. I will say this too, “Map Change” is one of the best songs of new millennium. Not only was it a great song to end the night on but it really is one of the best songs Every Time I Die has ever written.

 
I can’t say enough about how truly great Every Time I Die is. Not just as a band and songwriters but how they truly bleed and believe in what they do. They are one of “those bands” that no matter what, when they come through your town, you go see them. As I mentioned too, they are legends and rightfully so. They have ushered in a new wave of heavy music and fans. Their discography stands up among the greats, and they still have so much more in them. Their latest album, 2016’s Low Teens, has been in constant rotation from the day I bought it. I personally can’t wait to see and hear what Every Time I Die does next. Thank you Every Time I Die for 20 years of greatness.

Memorable TV Performances: Every Time I Die on Jimmy Kimmel

Screen Shot 2018-10-03 at 9.50.56 AM.png

Back in 2007 while riding high on the release of their very kick ass album The Big Dirty, Every Time I Die performed the song “We’rewolf” on Jimmy Kimmel Live. This was a very intense performance for a couple reasons, 1, they performed on the inside stage which is rather tiny but right up the ally of the guys in the band. 2, the audience that was watching them probably had no idea what they were in for and 3, this was the first time ETID had performed on a late night TV show.

Don’t forget this show is totally interactive. So if you have any requests for certain bands/songs or even topics you’d like for me to elaborate on, send me a message or leave a comment in the comments section.

Guest Vocalist: Howard Jones- Light The Torch Ex Killswitch Engage

Howard-Jones.jpg

 

For many years now, Howard Jones has been a well respected vocalist in the heavy music world. From his time in Blood Has Been Shed to Killswitch Engage and now with Light The Torch (formerly known as Devil You Know), Howard’s voice and lyrics have resonated with countless amounts of people. Since Light The Torch is getting set to release their new album, Revival (out March 30), I thought it would be fun to put together a bunch of songs Howard has guested on over the years.

Great Music Videos: Every Time I Die- Map Change

giphy.gif

Every Time I Die is one of the hardest working and best bands of the last almost 20 years. These guys continually evolve and get better and better as time and albums come and go. On their latest album Low Teens, which is one of 2016’s best albums, Every Time I Die, really got personal and let it all hang out there. The closing track on the album “Map Change,” is one of the coolest songs I’ve heard in a long time. The video is just as good too. It’s an homage to their hometown of Buffalo, New York and it gives a glimpse of life out there in what many know as the armpit of the US. Check out the video and the song. If you aren’t a fan of Every Time I Die, you will be by the time the video is over.

Audioeclectica Radio Episode 1

I’ve been working on revamping the Audioeclectica Podcast for a while now. I didn’t want to make the same type of podcast/show that I’ve been hearing so, I went another route. Don’t think of this as a podcast but rather a radio show. Instead of me talking all the time, I’m going to play you all some great music and tell you interesting tidbits about the band, album, song, etc.

This is will also be completely interactive. I will be taking requests about what bands/songs you want to hear as well as topics you’d like for me to discuss and give my take on. I will be having guest on and they will be picking some of their favorite songs to play.

This is all an experiment but totally fun for me. I hope you all enjoy the show and find some great bands, songs, and cool info from listening.

Without further delay… Here is episode 1.
