                In my time I have heard good symphonic metal bands and in my time I have heard some really shitty symphonic metal bands.  Also, there are bands that cover the whole spectrum in between.  As it stands right now that’s where I feel Suncrown stands early in their career.

IRON MAIDEN Song Used In Literature Class

According to Amarillo.com, West Texas A&M University professor Martin Jacobsen recently fused metal music and literature classes by using the “Out Of The Silent Planet” track off IRON MAIDEN‘s 2000 album “Brave New World” during a class exercise, presenting visual diagrams of lyrics construction with the music playing at the same time.

“The students were mad for it,” the professor tells Amarillo.com. “They just thought it was crazy and they loved it. I threw it out there just as an offhand comment one day — ‘What we ought to do is have a class in heavy metal’ — and there was universal agreement from the students in the class, like, ‘Yes, we should actually do that.'”

The class exercise was such a hit that Jacobsen is now teaching a new course called “Introduction To Literature: Heavy Metal As A Literary Genre”. The professor explains that many metal lyricist have been inspired by some of the greatest writers of all time.

“You constantly see these nods to the intellectual tradition that these writers, these lyricists come from,” he said. “It’s connected itself and grounded itself in literary tradition. Therefore it’s reasonable to conclude that it is a form of literature as well as a form of music. In much the same way, you might say country music is a species of folklore.”

22-year-old student Eric Bauer, who got really into heavy metal in middle school with METALLICA, thinks heavy metal is a broader genre than it gets credit for.

“In the lyrics of heavy metal, you can write about anything,” he said. “Social issues, the human experience, wizards and dragons — if you’re interested in a subject, there’s probably a heavy metal song about it.”

BLACK TUSK Begin Work on New EP

 

Savannah, GA’s BLACK TUSK have commenced work on new material for their upcoming EP. The EP is scheduled to be released later this Spring via Relapse Records. Drummer James May checked to comment on the progress of the release:

“This new release is a mean one. It reminds me of a new twist on an old days BLACK TUSK sound. We got back together with Jay and Phillip Cope to turn this out with some of that earlier, brutal sound you might have heard back in the beginning albums. We figured it was about time to see what the old gang could do years later.”

The band will be taking a break from the studio in March for a short run of headline dates, followed up by a run of shows with Today is the Day, KEN Mode and Fight Amp. The tour begins March 1st in Spartanburg, SC and runs through April 7th in Chicago, IL. A complete list of dates can be found below.

 

BLACK TUSK is scheduled to appear at this year’s SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX. Details and location will be announced shortly.   Additionally BLACK TUSK are working with UnBlock the Rock (UBTR), an independent grassroots movement, working tirelessly to bring Cuban metal band Escape to the United States in March for this year’s SXSW Music Festival and Conference in Austin, Texas to perform the first Cuban heavy metal concert on U.S. soil. To help UBTR quickly raise funds over the next few weeks to cover Escape’s travel and visa costs to SXSW, BLACK TUSKdonated a track to The Red Album, UBTR’s first compilation CD now available by donation atwww.unblocktherock.com.
