Welcome to the fourth part in our ongoing series of Heavy Blog Is Heavy’s “Best Of” selections where we explore a genre of music and each of our dedicated authors picks a favorite album to share a personal experience with. For our fourth list we decided to mix things up a bit and discard the genre limitations all together. Instead, we chose to focus on albums that have retained their original shine, even through dozens and dozens of listenings. This is the Heavy Blog Is Heavy Best Of Albums That Never Broke Edge
We tried to select albums that have been around long enough to prove that they can survive the test of time. However, there was no specific time limitation set so you’ll find albums from all different periods of metal (and some from outside metal). This list is truly eclectic and there’s a reason behind that: we believe that truly great music, music that has enough substance to survive past the first 50 or even 100 listenings, truly crosses all genres. Keep your mind open and your ears alert as we take you down the twisted path of our staff’s favorite albums.
It is with the most selfish of smirks that I am writing this news. Our beloved maestro of majestic musical extravaganza Devin Townsend is taking his Devin Townsend Project and Ziltoid across mainland Europe and the UK. With him are the ever polarizing Periphery and the hands down batshit SHINING. While you fine people residing in the US do get more tours and are spoiled by local acts, us Euros do luck out sometimes and this is definitely one of those occasions. Get the tour dates after the jump. View Full Article »
Your entire Heavy Blog is Heavy staff took Labor Day off (even the ones in countries that think Labor Day is for expectant mothers) so it’s a little surprising how much sick content we rolled out for you this week. We’ll share the good shit after the jump.
We love Devin Townsend so much that Devy Blog Is Devy is definitely a thing which exists shut up yes it does. On the long road towards the release of the upcoming Ziltoid album, starting with the insanely successful Casualties of Cool crowd funding campaign, we’ve been eagerly awaiting this release, hanging on every bit of information, whether official or just via Twitter. We can finally say that the man himself has released an official press notice, including a release date and a very exciting live performance. Check it out in full below the jump!
We’ve been talking a lot about Xerath‘s upcoming album, III, due to release on September the 16th. That’s because we’re frankly super excited for it, among making of videos, bass play-throughs and other tidbits. Now, the band has released a full track off the upcoming album, which you can check out right after the jump. What are you waiting for?
After finding out that Z2 will release on October 27th of this year by means of a poster for a kick ass tour starring the Devin Townsend Project, Animals as Leaders, and Monuments, Devin decided to take to Twitter to reveal a few details in regards to just what we can expect from Z2 in the guest department, what the album means to him and that he’s thinking about taking a year off. Check out the tweets from the man himself after the jump.
You read that right! This tour has just been announced and will feature Devin Townsend in support of Z2 we presume, Monuments and Animals as Leaders on all dates! What more needs to be said? You simply cannot afford to miss this show. Check out the full dates below!
This is it guys. Final five. These are still un-ranked inside the list but every single one of these albums received a wide consensus in our staff group. These are the albums we’ve listened to the most in the past six months and we’d like to share them with you. We hope you’ve enjoyed the journey so far, even if we didn’t agree on every point. We appreciate every single one of you (no tears!) and hope to see you on the other side of this incredible year. Thanks for joining us!
Without further ado, here’s an arbitrarily arranged list of awesome albums from 2014 so far. Remember: it’s okay to not like thing.
“Nobody opens their favorite beer and wonders what it will taste like”. So begins the press release for the new Overkill album, White Devil Armory. There’s no hope in arguing with such a sentence, since it’s obviously correct: we like what we like and we mostly know what to expect from it. However, can we not also expand our horizons and try and remember those times when something we loved completely surprised us? Like Opeth‘s Damnation, like the first time you try sriracha and nutella, getting surprised by something you thought you knew is a rare treat.
