The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Device out today
It’s new music Tuesday which means you’ll be able to pick up the new Device self-titled debut. The disc from Disturbed front man David Draiman is a resurrection of industrial metal. Draiman hooked up with former Filter guitarist Geno Leonardo for the attempt. In a recent interview, Draiman said Disturbed fans are going to recognize some of the lyrical stylings, but he made a conscious effort to distinguish his voice on Device from that found on Disturbed albums. Get a sample of the album with a few songs streaming online at WQLZ.com.
HOGAB Part 2
Another album that is out today is Stone Sour’s House of Gold and Bones Part 2. The second album in the concept goes deeper into the story of a drifter confronted by life’s demons. The first in a series of comic books based on the concept is expected out in a couple of weeks.
Queens share My God is the Sun
Queens of the Stone Age have unveiled their latest track from their forthcoming album. The tune is called “My God is the Sun” and it’s from the album … Like Clockwork. From an initial listen, QOTSA fans are in for a treat. With guitar riffs and vocals that work together and build upon each other, plus Josh Homme’s don’t give an eff rocker voice, it’s only making us crave more. The ten track album is expected out sometime in June.
From the grave
If you’re in to watching some old school performance video, there’s a clip of Mad Season performing from back in the day. If you don’t recall, Mad Season featured Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready and the late Layne Staley from Alice in Chains. Layne and bassist John Baker Saunders died before the band could finish a second album.
