The inaugural edition of the Vultures Of Volume fest was a very interesting proposition from the get-go, to say the least. Once the organizers, Kathy Reeves and Matt Dayton, announced the event as well as the line-up, preparations were made to head northeast.
Though being originally slated to take place in Maryland, difficulties there meant a change of venue was enforced. It's the perfect place for an occasion like this whichever way you look at it. Philadelphia 's Wizard Eye had the honor, yet the unthankful task, of opening up the procedures. At 3pm not many people had showed up, however, that didn't deter these beasts.
They played like it was a full house and were simply crushing it with their bottom-heavy riff-based, sonic and psychedelic doom. I've had the opportunity to see them live several times and they were phenomenal as always. Locals BlackHand followed and they had recently gotten back together after a hiatus. A nice acquaintance indeed. Mixing Black Sabbath with sludgy doom is their forte and they were pretty damned good. Heavily riff-infused and sleazy they weren't bad but didn't make it or break it with me.
Never a band to disappoint, Gorgantherron from Evansville, IN, were as good as ever. They simply laid JB McGinnes to waste as well as crushing the ever growing crowd. Amazing is all I can say! Beelzefuzz are always a force to be reckoned with, being one of the best and most innovative bands out there.
They upped the ante quite a bit recently by adding Greg Diener of Pale Divine on guitar. Holy shit folks! An already fantastic band is even more amazing now, expanding their musical palette to unrivaled levels. It's trippy, groovy, heavy, psychedelic and totally out of this world. I've said this elsewhere but Beelzefuzz are the past, the present and the future of music! Fabulous guitarwork, jammy and experimental it was pure joy to watch them.
Problems with the Moog didn't stop them, instead that glitch only spurred them on. I know I'm very biased when it comes to Pale Divine. They are, after all, one of my favorite bands ever. Regardless, this was one of the best performances I've ever seen them do. Even though their albums are far apart, Pale Divine always evolve.
Each show brings something new and holy hell, tonight they were incredible. Few, very few bands mix heaviness, soothing tones, technique and melody and create music the way these gentlemen do it. Truly amazing! Kingsnake are a good decent band from PA that I have managed to catch a few times. Good musicianship and a solid performance is what they gave us but still they didn't rattle my bones. I was hooked. Trev - Arrows, from our first record Ruins. It was the second song I think we wrote together.

Having already toured in support of metal heavyweights such as Behemoth , Sepultura , Dark Tranquility , and God Forbid just to name a few these guys are poised to steal the metal spotlight in a grand way. Upon the Warlords Crawl is as superb a heavy music offering as they come, rumbling with youthful rage, composed with the care for the craft, and thrashing in your face with the immediacy for a new world order.
These guys bring it with infectious passion. Now, take those same ideals, those same fiery volleys of sound, those same extreme approaches to creating music and fast forward them twenty years, and you should be getting an idea of what Truth Corroded bring to the table. Check out the weird break about a minute fifteen in. This song is like a mechanized creature rising from the bowels of a dark laboratory, obliterating everything that stands in its path, created for one sole purpose.
Destruction of everything around it and, ultimately, itself. This is the kind of song that epitomizes heavy metal. The explosive bursts of sound are made so much more powerful by the slower portions. Truth Corroded created a masterful piece of music with this eight minute quasi-epic song. I love the emotion that the band displays on this record.
It comes across as honest and passionate, never once did I feel that anything I was listening was forced. I hear a band that ingested a lifetimes worth of old school thrash metal and vomited out a modern version of this metallic style. Maybe even better. The musicianship is top notch, the production is ear splitting, the compositions are strong, to the point, and get the message across.

Sometimes you just want to turn off the noise. Find something with a gentler vibe, more soothing, less harsh. With that in mind, we present another in our occasional columns of Ripple recommendations for music to Chill to. Alex Cuba - Agua Del Pozo Quite some time ago, my wife and I ditched society and decided to spend the night out on my father's sailboat. Not to go sailing, mind you, just to use it as a floating hotel. We'd been working too hard, felt stressed and just wanted to get away. The boat was the perfect place.
Just sleeping in a different place, out on the water, was rejuvenating. The next morning as we awoke we heard the most amazing music; gentle, floating harmonies, lilting voices, angelic acoustic guitars. That music brought us into the morning as the sun was rising. Grabbing a cup of coffee, I asked the guy in the boat next door who that fantastic singer was.
Alex Cuba was his reply. Alex Cuba is truly the new face of Latin soul.Poor Little Rich Girl - Claude Thornhill And His Orchestra - Claude Thornhill, (Vinyl, LP) Frères de Sang - Aeria Microcosme - Ep (CDr).
