Cinco De Metal

Cinco De Metal (5-5-10)
Occasionally we help out some friends by perpetuating their pursuits. On this coming Wednesday (Cinco de Mayo – see the clever word play in the title? Bingo.) we are helping out with a show in the area. It’s very close – so close that our back lot serves as the venue’s parking area.

Here’s your rundown:

Black Pyramid are a band out of Northampton with a description that goes, “Black Pyramid play doom with the rumbling down-tuned tones of stoner metal gods like Sleep, Electric Wizard, and High On Fire, but with the epic arrangements of old school metal and doom acts such as Black Sabbath, Pentagram, and The Obsessed. Add to the sonic brew perfectly executed forays into vintage psych and progressive rock, along with the apocalyptic lyrical ravings about war, the occult, and general alienation, and you’ve got an accurate picture of what the band is all about. Prepare to be crushed by the weight of the Black Pyramid…”

Let the Night Roar feature a former member of Leviathan and Malevolent Creation. I’m only saying that because it seems to be said over and over wherever I look. This band stands on its own merits. Here’s some press: These guys combine the doom parts of High On Fire and Sleep with the dirty sound of Celtic Frost and Venom. Very important to bands of this sound. I believe that Let The Night Roar will manage to put their name next to all the other important bands of the sound. —-HARM Magazine

And finally and most eagerly anticipated are our friends in Nightbitch which features Phil of Hour of 13 and Ryan from Ipsissimus (among other righteous brethren). “Riffs and sleaze.” Black Sabbath. The occult. Alucarda. Haxan. Asphyxiation. Walpurgisnacht. First show.

Gristleism – Standard/Modified

Gristleism – Standard / Modified

Gristleism. We sell this item. It’s rather cool. It is so neat that I have decided to do a write up on it here. Basically, Throbbing Gristle and FM3 made a loop device together.

The one hitch with it is that there is no jack/output to plug into. If you don’t need that and you just want to listen and bliss out then the standard old Gristleism box will do. ($24.50 for the standard box – as noted by the price tag in the picture.)   If you want to dissect it yourself that is half the fun for some. (Yes, this device has its own site.) even has a diagram for adding your own jack.  As a word of advice – not all of these look the same inside though they all include the same components.

We (Redscroll) recently garnered the help of our friend Donovan (Roman Wolfe) to modify a few of these to sell in the shop with a jack/output. 

Look for these at the front desk / glass case.  $34 (this covers the extra parts and labor involved while not getting too outlandish – at least we think that).   If you’re seeing this from a great distance we will ship them, sure.  Contact us for shipping quotes.

Finally, I submit this (which is a video nabbed from this review that my friend David Abravenel did on the Gristleism; we also sell the Buddha Machine and the Buddha Machine II):

B.O.M.B.Fest May 30th – Durham Fair Grounds, CT
True story. There is a big music fest going on Memorial Day weekend in CT and it is pretty darn good.

Local favorites M.T. Bearington and Eula are representing New Haven. A slew of other bands from around the tri-state are set to play as well: artist line-up.

As for the headliners there is quite the mix; some bigger college aimed hip-hop acts, some hip indie rock and a veteran emo band. There are also some straight party acts and a cover band. Whatever your vibe is this most likely has at least one thing you enjoy. If you enjoy enjoying things in large groups then super extra bonus plus for you. This is a festival.

It seems there will also be a carousel and big ol’ wheel for ridin’. It’s on the Durham Fair Grounds so that is pretty fitting. I hope, for the sake of all attending, that there will also be a Lyman Orchards booth and some fried dough.

We (REDSCROLL RECORDS, 24 N. Colony Rd., Wallingford, CT 06492) are selling tickets to B.O.M.B.Fest! No service charge.

If you plan on going please stop by and pick up a ticket. They are $50 – considering all that this ticket comes with and goes to, that ain’t bad. By the way, B.O.M.B. = Bring Our Music Back and is also the first four letters in organizer, Frank Bombaci’s last name -> clever and convenient acronym. As an added karmic bonus a portion of the proceeds from this fest will go to some fine charities. “ BRING OUR MUSIC BACK INC. donates over 70% of net proceeds – raised through B.O.M.B. Fests, other fundraising events and individual donations – to select national and local charities.” “Here’s the best part of B.O.M.B. Fest! It’s all about the give back. Part of the money you spend will help kids who don’t have it so good….like the ones at The Hole In The Wall Gang Camp and Connecticut Children’s Hospital.

Edit to bring some bad news: Brand New has dropped off due to some personal issues (I am paraphrasing the announcement – I know nothing beyond this).

UPDATE 5/1/10: 30 Seconds to Mars (Yea, the one with Jared Leto – you know, that guy who gets his face all messed up in Fight Club) is now playing.
