We’ve reached out to our metal and hard rock brethren across the land, asking that they contribute prose to our recent series of guest columns. We ran a recent series on Five Albums That Will Change You, and the response was overwhelming.
The new topic is Three Bands You May Not Know About But Should, and we asked that each guest writer jot down a brief description of what makes each band worthy of our attention. Today, we are excited to continue this ongoing series with an entry written by Chad Nicefield of Wilson.
Do you love fucking with the lights on? Are you into your pants being of the leather persuasion? Do you like your whiskey to burn for a week straight!? Then you will LOVE the Cadaver Dogs. We met these assholes somewhere in the Midwest most likely through Foxy Shazam at some point along our ways. These doods are the real rock and roll deal. No strings attached. No over-produced garble. They write songs you want to bang your ex in front of her mother to. And when they play them live it sounds like THEY ARE banging your ex in front of her mother. We’ve toured a bit together and shared some creepy stories as well as some good old shitty beers. They just released a full length record called Superloose and have been touring the country relentlessly since. Get on their wagon before they steal all our girlfriends and there is no room for you on their wagon!
Against The Grain
Holy fuck…you want fire and brimstone this is your in! Against The Grain (ATG) has been scorching over here in Detroit for some time now. They are your quintessential pissed off speed rock band with a Motorhead feel. They definitely pay homage to all their predecessors but damn do they do it well! They have toured with The Meatmen and The Hookers over the past few years and have released a hand full of albums that all fucking slay! ATG definitely holds the most spins of a single record in our van and we look forward to making their new record Surrounded By Snakes the new number uno for our shaggin’ wagon!
Southern Train Gypsy
These bastards know how to hold their liquor! Giving “Southern metal” a reason to get drunk and pissed off Southern Train Gypsy lights up any room they devour. I used to live on these guy’s floor when I was living in Texas a few years back. Every night after the bar we would pile into the living room (a.k.a. my bedroom) and listen to these doods shred the gnar until the early morning. They all come from a long line of southern USA based bands and have put in their dues over the years. 10 years ago I watched some of these guys literally bang their way across the USA city after city leaving devastation and ruins behind for boyfriends of all creed to clean up. Although they do not hit the road like they used to if you are in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and are lucky enough to catch a fucking fireball like STG you should cut off your genitals after wards…cause you are never gunna need them again. They just released a new record aptly titled The Bastard…it fucking RIPS!
