Kopek Is Coming To Columbus!

If you’ve been a visitor here before, you know that The Rev really likes Irish rockers Kopek & their new album “White Collar Lies”. Well, they’re touring the States currently, and tomorrow night (4/1) they’ll hit the stage with Cold and Egypt Central at the legendary Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio.

Folks, this band has a long history of winning Battle of the Band competitions, so I’m thinking their live performances have to be phenomenal. Won’t you join me & check’em out?

Here’s another video to whet your appetite – “Cocaine Chest Pains”. Yeah, it’s grungy but it’s got a great melody. Enjoy, and see ya’ at the Alrosa!

Morbid Angel Announce New Album Title, Intentionally Ignore Ignominious

Blabbermouth.net – Legendary Florida Death Metal pioneers Morbid Angel have announced their new album will be called ‘Illud Divinum Insanus’, thus perpetuating their tradition of each album title follow alphabetically from the one before it. So yeah, the next one should start with a ‘J’ etc.   I thought I was SO SMART for noticing this all by myself, but after reading the writeup on Wiki, I see that perhaps instead I was just the LAST HUMAN ON EARTH to realize this fact. Doesn’t matter – I still feel smart.

Strangely, there was a bootleg called ‘Ignominious’ that I thought might have been their ‘I’ album, or at least caused the band to skip that letter to avoid confusion.  Confusion be damned apparently as they’ve sauntered forth & ignored that unofficial release.  Good to know, eh?

Anywho, love that David Vincent is back doing vocals but am kinda bummed that longtime drummer Pete Sandoval has been sidelined due to back surgery. This is a band that has been on my bucket list for years, so here’s hoping that they tour nearby (odds are pretty good as they seem to gravitate to the Al Rosa Villa).  Can’t wait to hear ‘Nevermore’, the first single, upon it’s debut May 16th.  Head over to Blabbermouth for all the details.
