Welcome to the MassBands Time Vault. Check out some past posts here at MassBands.org! Here is a list of some of the better things here.
Atomics is simply grunge, stoner, doom-metal at it’s best! From the first track “Wanting” to the last track “Toast”, you will be wanting more. “Wanting” kicks in with an intense crisp guitar crank, that sure was recorded at high octane decibel levels. The vocal harmonies are just surreal! The second track rocks and reminds me of old school Helmet, or early Soundgarden. Atomics is sure an album to be reckoned with! These truly are songs about Satan, the gods, nuclear war, aliens and space battles! I love it when the song “Atomics” comes in, it’s just an exhilarating experience! Also, “Space Duel” just absolutely rocks! I liked it the first time I heard it! Just like this band, I liked them the first time I heard them. Sometimes you just hear a band and you are instantly hooked! I don’t know how else to explain it.
Atomics is one of the best albums I’ve heard this year, and it’s September. I’ve always been a fan of Problem With Dragons, ever since the first day I heard them. “Failures” is just riveting . Infinite variables. I wish I had a lyric sheet as I’ve always been bad at deciphering super awesome lyrics. The album closes with “Toast”. “Ours is not to question/Ours is not to understand/Gods in the sky/Birdmen/ Flaming chariots…”, goes the lyrics for “Toast”. Such an infinite schism from the pop culture. I love it! This is just an epic album. Kudos to our friends, Problem With Dragons! I hope to get on a few more shows with these blokes. We played at the Tavern in Framingham together back in April on the 28th with our buddies in Problem With Dragons. Hopefully we will do some more shows together. The world is your oyster!
Check out the most awesome stoner/doom metal band Problem With Dragons, at some of their up and coming shows. Here’s a list that I have gleaned off of Facebook for some of these “Dope-Ass PWD Shows”. No, you know I mean business! Ah, the internet -always a pleasure. Go to some shows, and have a good time. Rock out, buy some beers and support your local scene, homeslice! \m/
This is MassBands.org here wishing you a happy day! If your link appears here -on this site- count yourself lucky! I like your stuff. Following is a complete list of all links featured on MassBands.org. If you’re listed you should interact with me, I want to promote your thing as much as mine. Because we all know, it’s better to write a song than to play one. It’s better to play one than listen to one. It’s better to listen to one than be a record company or however the adage goes. I forget who said that, can someone run a google search? Lol. Enjoy! -Mike at admin@MassBands.org
Have we got a weekend coming up for you! Bring on the double down tour! First stop, Friday night in Brighton, at the most awesome Magic Room at 155 North Beacon Street. Full-Blooded Mutt will be opening for Mother Ton and the always incredible Manifest. I’ve been dying to get in to the Magic Room since I first seen a show their last year. Not only do they have a super high-tech lighting system -which I hear will be running- there’s also a backdrop to project movies on. This is gonna be a rockin’ time for all!
The following night on Saturday, the 28th, come on down to The Tavern in Framingham, MA. The most super doom rock/stoner rock band, Problem with Dragons, will be starting the night off with a set that is sure to melt faces! Following them will be Manifest, to belt out some rocking tunes at 10PM. Then after that, Dylan and me are gonna rock the house with Full-Blooded Mutt -hopefully he survives the previous evening and doesn’t spontaneously combust. Finally to close out the evening will be the ever-loving ever-rioting Slobbies with their brand of Slob rock.
