pedal-2016-promoLast night was Alumni Takeover Weekend over at Bridgewater State University’s radio station WBIM 91.5FM. The reason it’s special and why I did a show is because that is my Alma Mater and I was a DJ at the radio station where I hosted the show Pedal To The Metal. It’s a tradition that has been going on for some time at the school during Homecoming weekend where alumni of the station will come and take over the station for a weekend. It’s an awesome tradition that I wish was more than just one weekend a year because it’s so nice to run into some familiar faces and hear some stories from some of the guys that came before you. I want to go ahead and thank John Coombs for putting this together once again and I hope he feels better, it wasn’t the same without him there. I also want to thank the school for allowing us to do this and the current staff at WBIM for allowing us to come and takeover the station from them. Here is my playlist from that featured a special Black Sabbath medley (of sorts).

1. Inside The Fire by Disturbed

2. The Threat Is Real by Megadeth

3. Square Hammer by Ghost

4. Room 24 by Volbeat

5. One Of Us Is The Killer by The Dillinger Escape Plan

6. Turn Off The Radio by A Day To Remember

7. Babylon’s Burning by W.A.S.P.

8. Brotherhood Of Man by Motorhead

9. On With The Show by Motley Crue

10. Children Of The Grave (Vocalist Medley) by Black Sabbath*

11. Sail Away by Deep Purple

12. Metal Gods by Judas Priest

* Vocalist Medley featured Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Martin, and Ronnie James Dio on the same track.

ghost-popestarWe are continuing in our tradition of reviewing horror or Halloween related music for the album of the week considering that it is the month of October. This week’s band Ghost, everyone’s favorite Satanic doom/rock/metal band has had a phenomenal year so far as the group took home a Grammy for Best Metal Performance for Cirice which was off of the band’s 2015 disc Meliora. Now the band has once again unleashed am EP for all of their fans to hear while we wait for new music from the band in Popestar which was released on September 16, 2016 with Papa Emeritus III lending vocals to the album with the Nameless Ghouls: Alchemy fire symbol.svg– Lead Guitar, Alchemy water symbol.svg– Bass, Aether symbol.jpg– Rhythm Guitar, Alchemy air symbol.svg– Keyboards, and Alchemy earth symbol.svg– drums. The EP features one original track and four cover songs (ranging from Echo & The Bunnymen to The Eurythmics) and it was produced by Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Killing Joke). So far, the EP has peaked at number 16 on The Billboard Top 200, 85 in the UK, three in Sweden, seven in Canada and New Zealand.

mi00041244231. Square Hammer– The album opener and the only original track on the record opens up with a very spooky keyboard track that actually helps drive song. The guitar riff is a driving force on it’s own that chugs along as you headbang. The track also features some of the best vocals from the Papa that I have heard. 5/5

2. Nocturnal Me– The band’s cover of post punk legend’s Echo & The Bunnymen’s dark best kept secret. Ghost takes the track and they make it even more eerie and enjoyable while they turn it into a doom classic. 5/5

3. I Believe– I have to be honest in saying that I had to look up who Simian Mobile Disco was. The band is able to take the electronic duo’s track and turn it a Ghost track. 4.5/5

4. Missionary Man– This is by far my favorite Ghost cover song of all time. They take a classic from the Eurythmics and they make it a kick ass rock song. They definitely kick it up a notch especially with the heavy bass on the track that you feel in your gut. I also love the background vocals provided by Fia Kempe (who returns for the next track as well). 5/5

5. Bible– This is probably my least favorite track on the EP as it’s the band’s cover of famed Swedish post-punk group Imperiet’s classic track. Its not a bad track at all persay, just not my favs. 4/5

My Final Thoughts– This is just an attempt at holding you over until the band can record a new album and introduce you to a new Papa. The original track reminds you of how brilliant the can be especially when it comes to making radio friendly tracks and the covers just prove how clever they can get with a song making it their own. I am going to give the EP 4.5 stars out of five for a final grade.

square-hammer-2Just like last year, we are observing the month of October here on the blog with horror related posts, but we are also doing it differently as well. You’ll get one Halloween related post with a regular music video of the week or single, etc. For this week’s Halloween related music video of the week, I am presenting to you the new music video from everybody’s favorite 70’s-esque Satanic group Ghost. Ghost recently released their latest EP Popestar to the masses and the EP features one original track with four amazing covers. The band recently released a music video for the track Square Hammer which is the original track on the EP and the band pays tribute to 1920’s Horror with the video. The video which was directed by Zev Deans sees the band arrive for the first ever moving picture in what looks and feels like something out of Nosferatu, but there’s no Vampire in the coffin, only a square hammer. Then a Giant Papa comes out of the screen turning into thousands of bats as the band is forced to battle him outside in order to save everyone. Check out the video below:

 

One of my favorite bands to emerge in this decade has definitely got to be Swedish metalers Ghost. Ever since their first release Opus Eponymous, I have had my ear glues to the stereo whenever the band releases new material. After three albums, one EP, and a Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Metal album for Meliora the band is back with a new EP called Popestar which will hopefully hold you over until the next album. The band has also unleashed a single from the album called Square Hammer which has an infectious keyboard riff that goes along with the band’s blazing guitar sound. A Nameless Ghoul talked about the track saying, “We’re very proud of it. We’re obviously thrilled to be able to play something new. This is a short, to-the-point little gem right at the jugular.” The song is so infectious that it has a very pop feel to the track, but The Nameless Ghoul tells us not to worry. He tells No Brown M&M’s, “If you hear the EP, don’t think that, ‘Oh, the next album is gonna sound exactly like this,’ but that is a good way for us to sneak in elements that are, like, you might hear a synth sound like this on the next record, but not as evident…we’re doing something else in order to get people to feel comfortable with [the direction of the next album].” Don’t mind the video below, but it’s the only version I can get you guys right now (the videos keep disappearing online, an official link to the track). Check out the album artwork below plus the track listing for Popestar:
