Hot off the heels of the album’s review, The Soda Shop Records proudly presents The Hedons Earth on my Nerves for FREE download and ONLY through The Soda Shop Records.
- Released June 21st, 2011 by Resin Hit Records www.resinhitrecords.comFormed shortly after the dissolution of Indy doom giants NECROPHARMACON in the hot summer of 2010, THE HEDONS are an unapologetic hybrid of punk, fuzz, doom, and psychedelic rock. Composed of Jeff Kaleth on guitars and effects, Ryan Strawsma on bass and low-end, and Jace Epple on drums and percussion, this power trio blends an elegant dance of hypnotic and screechy exclamations with guitar and bass-driven melodies. Driven and inventive, this band is all about the release, in whatever shocking form of pleasure it may take.

Well after a long vacation for the 4th of July and trying to catch up on personal business last week, I had skipped the Bandcamp Recommendations. No time, sorry. This week though, there’s some good stuff abroad. This is a hard rock filled feature today. Sit back, stretch your sacks cause here’s the Bandcamp Recommendations.
It has been announced that Birmingham based Alunah have signed a deal with Psychedoomelic Records; an Austrian label dedicated to doom metal who have worked with such notable bands as Ramesses, Pale Divine, Penance, Orodruin, Voodoo Shock and Wall of Sleep etc. In the same week the band also signed a re-release deal with Seattle based Doom Metal Alliance Records. (more…)
Last week’s feature brought you one of the best that today’s stoner/doom has to offer with Witchcraft. This week, we’re doing something a tad bit different. We’re featuring Magnus Pelander, the voice of the mighty Witchcraft. (more…)
Is it Thursday again? Oh wait, it is. Well I guess that means we have to do another Bandcamp Recommendation. Well, we don’t have to. Finding new music is just as fun as listening to it. So I’ve gone and offered up some more choice music for you this week. Just remember, if you like it, support the band in any way that you can. Buy their tunes, see their show or order some swag.
The album is a combination of early Rolling Stones, Robin Trower, classic and southern rock. This is a soulful album right from the get go. It changes itself up from slow to fast throughout but has a nice even flow. The balance between blues rock and classic rock is as about perfect as one can get.
