When the cult sludge act called it a day, bass player Dave "Dixie" Collins teamed up with guitarist Dave "Shep" Shepherd and founded WEEDEATER in the harbor town of Wilmington about the year 1998. Their crushing and massive first full-length ‘…and Justice for Y’all’ (2001) created an immediate buzz, while critics were struggling to put a tag on their sound. Nearly everybody agreed that stoner rock, doom, sludge and some crusty elements were part of the mix, which the band simply calls "weed metal". After signing to Season of Mist, WEEDEATER reissued their full back-catalogue on their new label. Yet the Bible Belt state of North Carolina, USA remains a fertile ground for hemp and stoner rock. 'Goliathan' makes the South smoke again. Lean back and let this monster record blow your mind!---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ASGhttps://asgnation.bandcamp.comFormed in the North Carolina coastline community of Wrightsville Beach in 2001, the riff-fueled, distortion-driven rock of ASG that can be found on their latest effort has actually been at the band's core since its inception.Initially forming as a three-piece instrumental project, due to the lack of a dedicated vocalist, ASG were intensely focusing on devising tight, driving guitar riffs, locking guitarist Jason Shi in with the rhythm section of bassist Andy Ellis and drummer Scott Key. But as time passed and no vocalist was found, Shi was eventually forced to step up to the mic.With Shi becoming more comfortable as a frontman, the group found themselves connecting with Volcom Entertainment, who signed the band and put them in the studio in 2003, to record their debut album, ...The Amplification of Self Gratification.In 2005 ASG found themselves in a proper studio with proper producers, Matt Hyde and Phil Caivano, recording their sophomore album, Feeling Good Is Good Enough, an album that summoned all the band's potential and spawned a thunderous hard rock creation that equaled what the band had been working towards for the past 3 years.While the ingredients of stoner rock, psychedelic metal, and angst-ridden punk rock are apparent, ASG doesn't fit under any particular category. Be you a fan of plain ol' rock and roll and don sleeveless flannels while sucking down 22 ouncers and gettin' rowdy - or enjoy waxin' deep on the bong, Win Us Over lives up to it's namesake and ensures that come January 22nd 2008, ASG won't be knocking on any doors; they'll be knocking them down.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Lacertiliahttps://lacertilia-uk.bandcamp.com/Welsh heavy rock band with punk attitude and psychedelic tendencies.60's psychedelia, 70's rock, proto punk, blues, funk, heavy metal, desert rock, free festival sounds . . .---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The Necromancershttps://ripplemusic.bandcamp.com/album/servants-of-the-salem-girlRarely does a band arrive on the scene so fully formed that you have to do some research into them to find out a little history. In the case of The Necromancers, that is exactly what they are and judging from this debut release, Ripple Music have hit upon the jackpot. Already home to a tremendous bunch of bands, The Necromancers may yet find themselves venerated as the greatest of all.That’s for the future and it could so easily fall apart but for one glorious album, Servants Of The Salem Girl, they have made what amounts to the best debut release so far this year. An album of unapologetic good time rock and roll, with a hefty dose of satanic nonsense, the French quartet draw on inspirations from European literature and film to fill their songs with menace, evil, but most of all, fun. Like Uncle Acid used to be, this is music which knows its core audience, knows its core themes, and are going to enjoy every single minute of it without taking it too seriously.– Echoes And Dust
