Bands to check out, info to know, albums to remember to order…if it’s worth talking about we’ll dump it right here.
Band recommendation – WHORES My friend Bob did some studio work with these guys recently and he recommended them to me. The drummer from Artimus Pyledriver is in this band so that should give you an idea of what they’re doing here. Think of a slightly less heavy, self titled record era Torche mixed with some Artimus Pyledriver and you’re on the right path.

Two Cow Garage announce new album, digital single – I’m big fan of the twang this Columbus, Ohio outfit is putting out. So, news of a new album has me a might bit excited. You can read all about it over at Vinyl Collective. If you’re not familiar with the sounds of TCG you can hit up their Myspace.
Trap Them enter God City – If you’re a fan of heavy/extreme music and you’re not hip to Trap Them, well, fix that problem. They are one of the absolute best in the world at what they do. They’ve entered Kurt Ballous’ mythic God City Studio to start work on their debut release for Prosthetic Records and they’re documenting the process via ‘We Craft Darkness’, a blog they’ve started. So if you want to keep tabs on the progress of the record I highly recommend you bookmark it, add it to your Google Reader, whatever.
