3 Songs: On Repeat

Andy Shauf – “The Worst In You” (The emerging Canadian multi-instrumentalist creates sophisticated and evocative music  that combines 60’s pop and 70’s singer-songwriter folk with modern synths, and chamber-pop ornamentation alongside his vivid, emotionally-charged narratives on his new album The Party.  Out today, his first recording for his new label, Anti Records, delivers the goods and should gain him the recognition he deserves.)

Gruesome – “Forces Of Death” (Nearly a year after their savage debut album, the old school - late 80’s and early 90’s - death metal revivalists return today with a brutal new EP, Dimensions Of Horror, via Relapse Records.  Vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey of Exhumed along with current and former members of Possessed, Malevolent Creation and Derketa create a nostalgia-inducing sound that specifically references and pays homage to Death’s pioneering debut album, Scream Blood Gore with its growling grooves and horror-movie inspired lyrics along with more grotesque artwork from Ed Repka.)    

Megadeth – “Dystopia” (The thrash metal pioneers returned in January with their 15th album, Dystopia to prove they remain a force to be reckoned with in the metal community after over 30 years.  Alongside Dave Mustaine and Dave Ellefson, are new guitarist Kiko Loureiro (ex-Angra) and Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler who add a fresh new perspective.  They are currently on tour in support of the album including a stop at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus this weekend.)
