Gather 'round the ole campfire, children, and let the Reverend Nivens tell ya a story about some of the new music that came out today, May 6th. And yes, last year I became a Reverend... let's begin!
True, talented, musicians, who for some reason don't get the love they deserve in the States, BLACK STONE CHERRY have dropped a new jam today with "Magic Mountain". I just saw they recently landed on the cover of CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE outta the UK. While I'm not sure they're classic rock I do know they rock and that's a big mag to get props in!
CRADLE OF FILTH put out a demo reissue with "Total Fucking Darkness". Keeping with the metal side of things, NAPALM DEATH put out a vinyl pressing of their 2000 album "Leaders Not Followers".
Amazon is pimping out a new roots album for AC/DC. I've scoured the internet and have yet to find much about it but according to them it's "The roots of AC/DC contains rare recordings from the 60's and 70's of Brian Johnson, Bon Scott plus interviews with Angus and Malcom Young."
Here's what's coming down the pike, what am I missing???
