Real Rock And Roll
MONSTER TRUCK – True Rocker
I really can’t wait to hear the new Monster Truck album. Every track I’ve heard from it so far has been a knockout, and “True Rocker” is no exception. The band’s upcoming album is titled “True Rockers” and it’s set for release September 14th, 2018 on Dine Alone Records (Canada) & Mascot Records (Rest of World).
As an added bonus, “True Rocker” features the legendary Dee Snider!
Monster Truck hails from Hamilton in Ontario, Canada, but in recent years you’re more likely to find the band touring all over the world. They’ve got a couple of Canadian dates lined up this summer, and will then be on the road in Europe. Check out all the dates on the band’s website.
BEUK – Hel van de Planeet
by Maria Savva
I have said it before and will say it again, if you follow great bands you will discover more great bands. I found out about BEUK when I saw a post on Facebook from Saint Apache‘s guitarist.
BEUK is a hard rock band from Belgium and are about to release their new single, the awesomely catchy “Hel van de Planeet” (Hell of the Planet).
bed. – Replay
Bed (bed.) are from Portland. Of course, they are. How many great bands have come out of Portland now? Dozens? Hundreds? The place is a music mecca. I went there once. It was very cool.
On Bandcamp and Facebook, the band describes themselves as a “slo-fi trio”. I guess that’s the problem when your music defies genre a little bit: you have to come up with your own classification. But we don’t really care about that, do we? We can call it alt-rock, or noise-pop, or just a really great song.
They cite Low and The Delgados among their influences. And there’s some nice sludgy guitar lurking beneath the chiming melody and the indie lyrics on this one. I like it. A lot. Definitely a band to keep an eye (and an ear) on.
