Nothing's ShockingRanked 309/500 On Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.
Although Jane's Addiction's 1987 self-titled debut was an intriguing release (few alternative bands at the time had the courage to mix modern rock, prog rock, and heavy metal together), it paled in comparison to their now classic major-label release one year later, Nothing's Shocking. Produced by Dave Jerden and Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell, the album was more focused and packed more of a sonic wallop than its predecessor; the fiery performances often create an amazing sense that it could all fall apart at any second, creating a fantastic musical tension. Such tracks as Up the Beach, Ocean Size, and one of alt-rock's greatest anthems, Mountain Song, contain the spaciousness created by the band's two biggest influences, Led Zeppelin and the Cure. Elsewhere, Ted, Just Admit It... (about serial killer Ted Bundy) and the haunting yet gorgeous Summertime Rolls stretched to epic proportions, making great use of changing moods and dynamics (something most alt-rock bands of the time were oblivious to). An incredibly consistent and challenging album, other highlights included the rockers Had a Dad and Pigs in Zen, the horn-driven Idiots Rule, the jazz instrumental Thank You Boys, and the up-tempo Standing in the Shower...Thinking. Like most great bands, it was not a single member whose contribution was greater: Perry Farrell's unique voice and lyrics, Dave Navarro's guitar riffs and wailing leads, Eric Avery's sturdy basslines, and one of rock's greatest and most powerful drummers, Stephen Perkins. Nothing's Shocking is a must-have for lovers of cutting-edge, influential, and timeless hard rock.

25th Anniversary Vinyl Edition
Newly Remastered For Vinyl
Features Suicidal Tendencies Frontman Mike Muir, Metallica Bassist Robert Trujillo, And Jane's Addiction Drummer Stephen Perkins
In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the groundbreaking debut album from funk-metal supergroup Infectious Grooves comes to vinyl for the first time in the U.S. Fully remastered for vinyl and limited to 1000 copies worldwide. Pressed on stunning glow-in-the-dark vinyl.
Infectious Grooves is a funk metal supergroup led by Suicidal Tendencies frontman Mike Muir. It also features former Excel guitarist Adam Siegel, ex-Suicidal Tendencies bassist Robert Trujillo (now in Metallica), and Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins.
Though Muir's sense of humor was often obvious with Suicidal Tendencies, Infectious Grooves often brought out a goofier type of humor: their albums contain comedy skits by a reptilian lover named Aladdin Sarsippius Sulemenagic Jackson III.1. Punk It Up

Hard LoveTim Showalter's latest release as Strand of Oaks, Hard Love, emanates an unabashed, raw, and
manic energy that embodies both the songs and the songwriter behind them. "For me, there
are always two forces at work: the side that's constantly on the hunt for the perfect song, and
the side that's naked in the desert screaming at the moon. It's about finding a place where
neither side is compromised, only elevated."
Drawing from his love of Creation Records, Trojan dub compilations, and Jane's Addiction,
and informed by a particularly wild time at Australia's Boogie Festival, he sought to create a
record that would merge all of these influences while evoking something new and visceral.
These influences coupled with an uninhibited and collaborative studio experience moved an
initial concept for a singularly feel-good record to something more complex and real. As
much as Showalter wants this record to seem like a party, it's more than that. It feels
like living. "You went away you went searching came back tired of looking" is how
Showalter begins the title track, a sentiment that epitomizes Showalter's own mentality in
beginning Hard Love. As the record progresses, so do the themes of dissatisfaction
and frustration with love, family, success, and aging, both in personal experience and
songwriting1. Hard Love

Limited Edition Picture Disc LP Version
Judging from their name, Suicidal Tendencies were never afraid of a little controversy. Formed in Venice, CA, during the early '80s, the group's leader from the beginning was outspoken vocalist Mike Muir. The outfit specialized in vicious hardcore early on -- building a huge following among skateboarders, lending a major hand in the creation of skatepunk -- before turning their focus eventually to thrash metal. Early on, the group (whose original lineup included Muir, guitarist Grant Estes, bassist Louiche Mayorga, and drummer Amery Smith) found it increasingly difficult to book shows, due to rumors of its members' affiliation with local gangs and consistent violence at their performances. The underground buzz regarding Suicidal Tendencies grew too loud for labels to ignore though, as the quartet signed on with the indie label Frontier; issuing Muir and company's classic self-titled debut in 1983. The album quickly became the best-selling hardcore album up to that point; its best-known track, Institutionalized, was one of the first hardcore punk videos to receive substantial airplay on MTV, and was eventually used in the Emilio Estevez cult classic movie Repo Man, as well as in an episode for the hit TV show Miami Vice (for which the group made a cameo appearance).
Suicidal Tendencies proved influential for future speed/thrash metal bands, but despite its early success, the quartet's reputation preceded them, as no other record label was willing to take them on (in addition, Los Angeles banned the group from playing around this time, lasting until the early '90s). Not much was heard from the group for several years afterward (leading many to believe that Suicidal had broken up), but Muir and company eventually found a home with Caroline Records. By this time, half of the original lineup had left; Muir and Mayorga were the only holdovers, while guitarist Rocky George and drummer R.J. Herrera rounded out the group. 1987 saw the release of Suicidal's sophomore release, Join the Army, which spawned another popular skatepunk anthem, Possessed to Skate, as more and more metal heads began to be spotted in Suicidal's audience. Soon after, Suicidal was finally offered a major-label contract (with Epic), as another lineup change occurred: Mayorga exited the band, while newcomer Bob Heathcote took his spot; and a second guitarist, Mike Clark, was added as well. This Suicidal lineup's first album together, 1988's How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can't Even Smile Today, showed that their transformation from hardcore to heavy metal was now complete, as did a compilation of two earlier EPs, 1989's Controlled by Hatred/Feel Like Shit...DÉjà Vu.
Suicidal's first release of the new decade, 1990's Lights, Camera, Revolution, was another success; its video for the explosive You Can't Bring Me Down received repeated airings on MTV's Headbanger's Ball program, while the album (in addition to the Controlled by Hatred comp) would be certified gold in the U.S. a few years later. The release also signaled the arrival of new bassist Robert Trujillo, whose penchant for funk added a new element to the group's sound. The group tried to broaden their audience even further by opening a string of arena shows for prog-metallists Queensrÿche during the summer of 1991. Their next release, 1992's The Art of Rebellion, proved to be one of Suicidal's most musically experimental albums of their career. Muir and Trujillo also teamed up around this time for a funk metal side project, Infectious Grooves (including several other participants, such as Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins) and issued a debut release, The Plague That Makes Your Booty Move. Upset that the group's classic debut had been out of print for several years by this point, Muir decided to re-record the entire record with Suicidal's '90s lineup under the title of Still Cyco After All These Years.
But after one more release, 1994's Suicidal for Life, Suicidal Tendencies decided to hang it up. A pair of compilations were issued in 1997: a best-of set, Prime Cuts, plus Friends & Family. Muir and Trujillo continued to issue further Infectious Grooves releases (Sarsippius' Ark and Groove Family Cyco), in addition to Muir pursuing a solo career under the alias of Cyco Miko (Lost My Brain Once Again) and Trujillo touring and recording as part of Ozzy Osbourne's solo band (appearing on Osbourne's 2001 release, Down to Earth). Muir formed a new version of Suicidal Tendencies in the late '90s (with Clark being the only other familiar face), resulting in such further studio releases as 1999's Freedumb and 2000's Free Your Soul and Save My Mind. Muir and Trujillo joined forces once more for a fourth Infectious Grooves studio release in 2000, Mas Borracho; while another Cyco Miko release surfaced, Schizophrenic Born Again Problem Child, along with a follow-up up to their earlier compilation, Friends & Family, Vol. 2. After releasing the compilation 'Year Of The Cycos' in 2009 that included a selection of all brand new songs from Suicidal Tendencies and side bands Infectious Grooves, NoMercyFool and Cyco Miko, the band released in 2010 the first record in 10 years 'No Mercy Fool!/The Suicidal Family' that included re-recordings of classic jems off the 'Join The Army records' and infamous recording 'Widespread Bloodshed' for Mike Muir and Mike Clark side band No Mercy back in early eighties.

One Hot MinuteFollowing-up the band's 1991 masterpiece Blood Sugar Sex Magik and featuring Jane's Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro in place of the recently departed John Frusciante, the Red Hot Chili Peppers 1995 album One Hot Minute distinguishes itself immediately from the band's previous and future releases with a more heavy metal guitar dynamic and glimpses of psychedelic rock. Band turmoil and resurfacing drug problems also led to darker lyrical themes as heard on popular singles Warped, My Friends and Aeroplane. Although this incarnation of the band would be short lived, their collective output here doesn't lack in ambition and One Hot Minute finds the band maturing on many musical levels.1. Warped

My ChristThe indieverse is slopping wet with reverb right now. And so are the songs of Gauntlet Hair. But the band uses the effect in a wholly different way than their peers. Instead of using reverb as a gauze, Gauntlet Hair uses its curvature and decay to form and push the melodies, to further shape the songs. Andy R.'s guitar strikes on My Christ leave these twinkling chemtrails behind then, each getting thwacked through with Craig Nice's huge-ass snare cracks.

Back To OblivionBack to Oblivion marks the return of Finch with the band's first full length album in over nine years. The Southern California band has undeniably created a lasting, formidable body of work with their two studio albums and EPs - singer Nate Barcalow acknowledges that 2002's What It Is To Burn all but "defined post-hardcore early in the decade", while 2005's Say Hello to Sunshine continued to shape its direction. The band dignified the demand for a celebration of What It Is To Burn's 10th anniversary by reforming after a hiatus and playing select sold-out shows across the country in 2013. Inspired by the creative surge brought on by these shows, Finch rendered these contradictions moot with Back to Oblivion, their long-awaited third LP and a new, bold chapter in the band's legacy. Back to Oblivion itself is a paradoxical idea. This is Finch reinvigorated, brimming with the inspiration of their earliest days; the opposite of the negation implied by "oblivion." But as a songwriting unit, they're challenging themselves by going deep into the unknown - this is by far Finch's most introspective and demanding work from a lyrical standpoint. The album was produced by Brian Virtue (Deftones, 30 Seconds to Mars, Janes Addiction, Audio Slave).1. Back To Oblivion

Late Love (Discontinued) (On Sale)Wolves Like Us are without a doubt one of the most exciting bands of the moment at the forefront of the burgeoning Oslo music scene. Although barely a year in, they have already established themselves on the live circuit with a showcase at last year's legendary OYA Festival and recent touring with Kvelertak, Gallows, Purified In Blood and Blood Command.
With ex-members from such notable Norwegian acts as Amulet, Infidels Forever, JR Ewing and Silver, the band is no stranger to dedicated hard work. Drawing influences from artists such as Planes Mistaken For Stars, Drive Like Jehu, Hot Water Music and the Afghan Whigs, the mission is clear: Wolves Like Us are here to purvey the urgent, powerful music they love.
Wolves Like Us signed with Prosthetic Records at the beginning of 2011 and immediately began recording Late Love in Oslo with Ruben Willem (Haust/Caliban Studios).

BEBeady Eye are an English rock band formed in 2009, by lead singer Liam Gallagher, guitarists Gem Archer and Andy Bell, and drummer Chris Sharrock all former members of Oasis.
BE is their second studio album, originally released on 10 June 2013. It was recorded between November 2012 and March 2013. The album was produced by Dave Sitek who has previously produced records for Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio and Jane's Addiction. BE debuted at number 2 on the UK Albums Chart.
. BE feels familiar -- the group is stuck in the back-half of the '60s, naturally loving the post-Pepper pomp of the Beatles but happy to crib from the Zombies (Second Bite of the Apple opens with a riff adapted from Time of the Season) or any other number of half-remembered, half-forgotten psychedelic oldies -- but isn't musty, thanks in part to Sitek's colorful, layered production. It's busy enough to keep BE skipping along -- there are far more tempos here than there are on the stately High Flying Birds -- but it's not fussy, partially due to the immediacy inherent in Liam Gallagher's voice, partially due to the open, airy sound that floats and coaxes and never hammers. At times, the reckless rush that powered such Different Gear songs as Bring the Light is missed -- this never, ever quite rocks, not even when Face the Crowd announces itself with a flurry of pinging, punchy chords -- but what is gained is imagination, along with some degree of subtlety that feels new coming from veterans of Oasis. And that doesn't go just for the members of Beady Eyes themselves: compared to Noel's High Flying Birds, BE is lithe and bright, and sonically seductive in a way HFB never attempts. That said, for as appealing BE is on its surface, it remains evident that none of the members of Beady Eye are capable of crafting a sturdy composition like the estranged Noel Gallagher. Liam and Andy Bell are workmanlike writers, while Gem Archer, the member with the dodgiest pedigree, writes the two best songs here, Second Bite of the Apple and the candied Iz Rite, but they don't linger in the mind the way Noel's songs do. Nevertheless, Beady Eye does something Noel does not (at least not yet): they can deliver a pure pop rush with an insouciant flair. Perhaps they're happily stuck in the past, but there's no denying that when they have a hook or melody -- and when they have a savvy producer like Sitek supporting them -- they deliver the retro goods.

Nothing's Shocking (Out Of Stock)Ranked 309/500 On Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.
Jane's Addiction may not have been a strict metal band, but their music was certainly full of traits inherent to the genre: hard, gleaming and powerful. Their 1988 release Nothing's Shocking captured the much too short-lived quartet at its absolute peak. Combining radically diverse musical elements from art and classic rock, to hard-core punk and funk, Jane's Addiction was the last great precursor to the alternative revolution of 1991-92. From songs about Ted Bundy (Ted, Just Admit It) to punk ideology as Eastern philosophy (Pigs In Zen) to mystic romances (Summertime Rolls) and early-morning thoughts (Standing In The Shower...Thinking), Perry Farrell consistently dissects his subjects through a psychologically-stimulating viewpoint while the extremely talented band made up of guitarist Dave Navarro, bassist Eric Avery and drummer Stephen Perkin provide the songs with an expansive set of musical colour. A must-have for lovers of cutting-edge, influential, and timeless hard rock.1. Up The Beach

Lay My Soul To Waste (Out of Stock)A Pale Horse Named Death is Sal Abruscato's band, so it's his musical fingerprint, and the band's sound and style is as distinct as his DNA.
While it is true that Abruscato co-founded Brooklyn's black-humored doom legends Type O and that he manned the kit for LoA during their watershed albums River Runs Red, Ugly and more, A Pale Horse Named Death is his brain trust. He sings and writes the songs, and stepped out from behind the drumset to play guitar.
His main partner in the band is Matt Brown, a fellow Brooklynite, who is also a seasoned studio vet -- a producer and engineer who has toured with luminaries like Lou Reed, Jane's Addiction and more.
In the live realm, the lineup includes Type O drummer Johnny Kelly, guitarist Eddie Heedles and bassist Eric Morgan.
On the surface, A Pale Horse Named Death are impressive. But you'll want to dig deeper and immerse yourself in all the sonic and lyrical layers, because the band isn't afraid to plume the depths of darkness that humanity is capable of. It's murky stuff, but someone has to do it.
A Pale Horse Named Death arrived with And Hell
Will Follow Me (2011). They have firmly implanted
their roots in the metal scene with Lay My Soul to
Waste. It's a metal album that headbangers who enjoy a walk on the darker side of life will end up revering and responding to.
"It's the same gloomy atmosphere," Abruscato continued. "If anything, it's darker. The artwork is darker, and people already think the first one is dark. We went further into that. The record itself, lyrics and sound, are darker. It's that progression."1. Lay My Soul to Waste
