R.L. Burnside- Mr. Wizard

In case you haven't noticed, I've been on this blues kick lately. Here is R.L. Burnside's album The Wizard. More classic blues sounding than An Ass Pocket of Whiskey, but still totally bad ass, contains almost the same styling, though not as raw. If someone could up the album Well, Well, Well, I would appreciate it.

Black Snake Moan Soundtrack

Black Snake Moan, a movie that has been elevated to my favorite. It has 3 things I love: the South, the blues, and Samuel L. Motherfucking Jackson.

This is a really ace soundtrack. Including 3 tracks done by Samuel L. himself. It includes music from The Black Keys, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Bobby Rush, and R.L. Burnside. From Mr. Jackson comes a rendition of Bird Without A Feather, by R.L. Burnside, as well as the haunting Black Snake Moan, the titular song.

Black Snake is evil, black snake is all I see

The Black Keys

The Black Keys, a two part Garage-blues band. It's some pretty sweet tunes, to be honest. I found out about these guys after hearing a song of theirs on the Black Snake Moan soundtrack. So I went out and got Rubber Factory.

Lumsk - Åsmund Frægdegjevar

This was the first example of Folk Metal that I ever heard, back when I was in highschool. Slow, chugging riffs, mixed with Violins, Cellos, Flutes, with both nice female vocals, and burly male vocals, mixed together to make a nice, epic viking themed album. I love walking around my community to this in the snow.

Tilsvarad Åsmunds brødanne tvo

Ded høyrar me på brodir kons
at han vil vita`kon daude.

Some crap Zero asked me to put up... I MEAN SABBAT YO!

So, Zero is here to offer you some new Music. "But Zero, you only listen to Thrash and obscure bands I've never heard of!" Well guess what you pussy, I'm proving you right!

This is Sabbat, a fucking awesome Blackened Thrash (Or Black/Thrash, if it makes a difference) from Japan. They're one of my favorite Black Metal bands ever. They're like Venom, only better in every way, being funnier, better musicians, and just plain eviler. Seriously, the first time I heard the Opener "The Answer Is Hell" I was pretty sure I'd been condemned to Hell right then. It's that fucking evil. This Album is Karmagmassacer, my first and personally favorite album from them. It's more Thrashy than their previous Efforts like Stanasword, but it's so damn distinctive and cool you won't care. See, unlike a lot of "evil" bands, Sabbat write riffs that aren't totally ripped off from Slayer songs. That's right, you're getting original, bad ass riffing. And the soloing is right up there too, being evil without ever sounding like a Slayer Impersonation. Their vocalist is also funny, but incredibly perfect for the music too.

If that hasn't sold you, maybe this will: I assume you all know about Venom's famed "At War With Satan" or whatever the fuck that 20 minutes song was called. Well Sabbat One Upped them: They released a song called "The Dwelling" that clocked in at 59:49, 11 seconds short of an hour. And you know what? That song is better than every Venom song evar, and I fucking love Venom.

Seriously, if someone doesn't download this that isn't Morgan, I'm quitting the Guild. You will like it if you have testicles. Even some of you ladies will. So do it now before I take my beautiful body and leave you all.

Rapidshit, Zero, really? WELL I GUESS ONCE CAN'T HURT...

Them Crooked Vultures - Live at Lowlands, Netherlands

The mighty holy merge of Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss, Eagles of Death Metal) John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) and Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana). This is just a bootleg that you can find on there website, but I've tagged it properly and rared it up in a nice and easy to download package. This shit is sounding awesome, and the album is due out later this month (which trust me, you'll see it up here the day I find that shit).

I'm also very exited about this, so I'm whoring this every ware, enjoy!

R.L. Burnside - A Bothered Mind

"This album includes a collection of unreleased R L Burnside live and studio cuts featuring both his band--great stuff from both Kenny Burns and Cedric Burnside--and R L solo from as far back as 1968. This is a treasure trove of true blues. Also built into A Bothered Mind are hiphop-blues cuts built by Kid Rock's mixmaster Tino Gross from recorded RLB vocals and featuring both Kid Rock himself and rapper Lyrics Born on additional vocals. These are interesting mixes and follow up well on R L's tradition of expanding his music's reach to new and younger listeners, as he did in his collaborations with the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion some years back."

Even though the idea of Kid Rock on one song makes my bowls churn, don't let that turn you off this album. It brings you a good mix of old school blues, modern music, and some damn soul. This goes out to nigga hollow point, who wanted his self some more Burnside. Amen brotha.
