Review: I, Captain – Mantras for Mindlessness [Stream]

icaptain111

Sometimes you come across a band and you start listening to their music and you just don’t want to stop. This is what has happened to me when I discovered the Finland based band I, Captain. The band was formed by Axel (Vocals, Bass), Viktor (Drums) and Andreas (Guitar) in 2013. It was a year later that Lukas (Guitar) became the final addition to the band and really completed their sound. It would only take the band a couple years to release their debut in January 2015. The EP titled ‘Surf the Supernova’ was 5 tracks of mesmerizing Psychedelic stoner rock. The band recently followed up their 2015 EP with the 3 track demo ‘Mantras for Mindlessness’. They released these 3 songs in April of 2016 and advised the songs will be re-recorded for their upcoming album release. Continue reading

The WATCHERS Unveil First Song “Sabbath Highway”

watchers

The recently formed Bay Area band The Watchers have relinquished their first song for our listening pleasure. The track “Sabbath Highway” just sets an expectation of greatness simply by the name. The band first began with Tim Narducci and Chris “Cornbread” Lombardo as they exited their previous project Spiral Arms. With this duo keeping their musical chemistry together it raised the bar of what is expected from the new project we now know as The Watchers. You add Ex-Orchid drummer Carter Kennedy and The Venting Machine guitarist Jeremy Von Eppic to the band and my ears are expecting to hear great things. Let me tell you now that I wasn’t let down and I am highly anticipating the rest of their debut and seeing them in live. Check out “Sabbath Highway” below and you will likely become an instant fan.

You can keep up with The Watchers on Facebook here, and we will keep you posted as well.

Recently you have probably heard more about Tim Commerford’s other project Prophets of Rage than WAKRAT, but don’t let that fool you. WAKRAT isn’t going on the back burner and we are very thankful for that. They had already released a video for “Knucklehead” which you can see here. The band recently signed to Earache Records and is expected to release their debut album later this year and no one is more excited about the release than us. In the meantime we have been blessed with another Wakrat track to get us through until we can enjoy the album in it’s entirety. About the debut album Commerford stated: “We are gearing up to be on the offensive, assaulting the populous with our debut album on Earache Records. We have put a shit load of blood and sweat into this and we want it back! Our mission is to attack modern music and smash the grid. Unapologetic, unrelenting, unbridled and uncensored. Understood?” Continue reading
