This week’s playlist has a bit of everything as Edinburgh-based Scumpulse sit next to the mighty Black Sabbath. Elsewhere, we have an acoustic offering from John Garcia, some Pantera, a bit of Rancid and even a track off the new Betraying The Martyrs album. As usual, enjoy.
There is an unsettling feeling in the air right now, rock and metal heroes seem to be dropping like flies and for the first time, we are about to see an enforced changing of the guards. In the last few months, we have lost Lemmy, Scott Weiland, David Bowie and now today the sad news of Glenn Frey of Eagles fame. We are reaching an age where the rock and roll bands of yesteryear are getting old and their members are passing away. So the question is, what next?
Much like the ever present Lemmy, Motorhead are a band that will seemingly never die. Having created the DNA for blending punk and thrash metal together, they have since spent decades honing their craft and laying waste to all that stand in their way. While they may have had to cancel their recent UK tour due to Lemmy’s health, the release of Aftershock, their 21st album, proves that they are not going anywhere soon.
