Sadistic Ritual talks Atlanta metal and Power Trip

Sadistic Ritual puts it's two cents in on the Red Bull Sound Select showcase and the local metal scene.

Tight Bros may have booked the perfect Red Bull Sound Select showcase to display how the drink really can give you wings. Metal kids, potent energy drinks, thrash-metal bands, and lots of booze. Beer/Bull cans and bodies alike will surely be hurled through the air in a metal-induced rage brought to us by Dallas, TX thrash outfit Power Trip, along with locals Sadistic Ritual, Criminal Instinct, and Hellgoat. (Full disclosure: CL Music Editor Chad Radford is a local curator for Red Bull's Sound Select program. He was not involved in curating this show.) All bands are set to annihilate the showcase on Sat., March 22, at the Earl.

In anticipation of the show, I sat down with hometown metal heads Sadistic Ritual to see what they think about the local metal scene, Power Trip, and Red Bull. Once the beer ran out and the smoke cleared, this is what the band had to say.

Atlanta's metal scene has been growing steadily over the past few years. How do you guys feel about the scene as of now and about a corporation such as Red Bull doing a purely metal/hardcore sound select showcase?

Hayden: The scene is definitely getting bigger and wilder.

Charlie: It's growing pretty fast. In general, I think Atlanta has become a go to spot or more of a metal city in the past two years, and the fact that a company like Red Bull is taking notice to it is a pretty big deal. A lot of people think that's kind of lame but I think its good because what the scene lacks is the financial side. When companies like Red Bull and Scion come in and help out with that and do free shows, why not, you know? Its not like they're making us wear Red Bull shirts and shit like that.

Tony: More and more people have been coming out to shows for sure, and Red Bull doesn't usually do metal stuff like this, especially with underground metal bands. We think that's a great thing.

Power Trip is the sound select headliner, how do you guys feel about the band and their newest record released by Southern Lord, Manifest Decimation?

Tony: Manifest Decimation is a great record!

Charlie: Their releases before are awesome too. They're a great band. I'm a huge fan of badass, mid-paced thrash metal. I think what they are doing is sick and the fact that they kind of have a crossover style for the hardcore kids makes their live performances way crazier.

Hayden: Their live shows are absurd. I remember people bleeding at their last show and just going insane. I got a black eye at that show and still have a scar from it.


Since Power Trip is known for having wild, energetic shows, what is Sadistic Ritual going to do to compete?

Tony: We're going to kill each other.

Hayden: VIOLENCE!

Charlie: We have a brand new set and it's probably the best shit we've written. So I'm really excited and I think people are going to go crazy for sure. Our last few shows were insane, so I think there will be a good turn out.

Hayden: Especially since Red Bull will be pumping people in for free.

Charlie: People are going to get drunk and go crazy.

Free (RSVP). $10 (door). 9 p.m. Sat., March 22. The Earl. 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950.

  string(6924) "The Shaky Knees Music Festival descends upon Atlantic Station from May 9-11, filling up three days with performances by established and up-and-coming indie rock alike. From the wistful pop Americana of the National and Conor Oberst to the lo-fi indie rock of Modest Mouse and Minnesota garage-punk elder statesmen the Replacements, it'll be a weekend of music and sun on the asphalt. With so many acts gracing the festival's four stages, prioritizing who to catch and who to skip can be a juggling act. So this week, CL's music scribes lay out their top 10 best bets for the weekend marked by exuberance in the name of contemporary indie rock.

Jordan Lee's experimental pop project Mutual Benefit may not be the biggest name on the weekend roster, but his pastoral folk songs bring one of the most thoughtful daytime shows to the lineup. With a blend of vibrant strings (live shows include violin and banjo) and analog field recordings featured throughout his 2013 debut, Love's Crushing Diamond, Lee and his collaborators create uplifting, authentic swells of music to wash over a sunny afternoon. Fri., May 9, 12:45 p.m. Piedmont Stage. — Sonam Vashi

When the Whigs, who relocated to Nashville from Athens in late 2012, take the stage, the group will do so with its new album, Modern Creation, in hand. It's a melodic batch of 10 jangly garage-pop tunes recorded over two weeks with full-band live takes. The trio sounds less raw and nervy than on past albums, but more confident and comfortable. Fri., May 9, 2:25 p.m. Ponce de Leon Stage. — Chris Hassiotis

He's called "The Screaming Eagle of Soul," and once you've witnessed Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires' give-it-all performance, it's pretty damn obvious why that is. The man got his showbiz start years ago impersonating James Brown, and the Godfather of Soul's show-stopping stage presence informs much of Bradley's act. "My heart is overpowered. I just have to scream it out to get all that beauty in my heart out at one time," he told CL while passing through town last year. Impassioned, soulful, funky, sweaty, fiery, dramatic ... Bradley's show is not to be missed. Fri., May 9, 4 p.m. Ponce de Leon stage. — CH

If the National isn't the reigning king of indie rock, it's certainly a high-ranking member of the royal court. On albums such as 2007's masterful Boxer and last year's Trouble Will Find Me, the Brooklyn-based quintet displays a deft flair for mixing genres and crafting atmospheric textures behind singer Matt Berninger's baritone ruminations on regret, finding one's way in a complex world, and other heady themes. All of which make this set a strong, if somewhat melancholy, way to close out Friday night. Fri., May 9, 9:30 p.m. Peachtree Stage. — Kevin Forest Moreau

It's been a long and lonely five years since Modest Mouse released 2009's No One's First and You're Next. The indie rock stalwarts have been mostly silent since then with frontman Isaac Brock's focus on his own Glacial Pace label, signaling a looming hiatus. Yet the few details that have eeked out from the MM camp reveal exciting things to come. Even though the three core members of Modest Mouse are all approaching the death knell that is middle age, their consistent reputation for unpredictable live ferocity makes them the biggest must-see at Shaky Knees. Sat., May 10, 9:30 p.m. Peachtree stage. — Paul DeMerritt

A festival like Shaky Knees is made for a band like Phox — a band on its way up but still generally unknown around these parts. The Wisconsin act released its debut EP, Confetti, last year and it's a charmingly kaleidoscopic collection of nuanced pop songs. Both playful and heartfelt, the music, and Monica Martin's arresting voice, looks to folk, soul, and psychedelia, but creates its own identity in one of those interrupt-the-conversation-to-ask-hey-what-band-is-this ways. Catch 'em before the rest of the country catches on. Phox's self-titled first full-length hits next month. Sat., May 10, 5 p.m. Boulevard stage. — CH

Jenny Lewis has kept herself busy over the past few years following the demise of her longtime group Rilo Kiley. Since then, the California alt-country songwriter partnered with boyfriend Johnathan Rice on their collaborative record Jenny and Johnny, penned songs for several soundtracks, and toured with the Postal Service. Lewis has recently turned toward finishing up her first solo record in six years with the help of guest producers Beck and Ryan Adams. The untitled LP will likely be released in 2014, which means that Shaky Knees will be a ripe opportunity for testing out her latest batch of pop songs. Sat., May 10, 8 p.m. Ponce de Leon stage. — Max Blau

The Replacements were one of those influential bands that cast a shadow over the alternative/indie rock landscape far greater than its commercial footprint. Which means this reunion (singer/guitarist Paul Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson are the only original members) comes with heightened expectations. Of course, the band's greatest strength has always been subverting expectations, rambling through albums like Let It Be, Tim, and Pleased to Meet Me with a shambling, erratic grace. All of this is to say the group often sounded sloppy and/or drunk, while revealing moments of assured songcraft, buoyed by Westerberg's wistful yet scrappy lyricism. Sat., May 10, 8 p.m. Piedmont Stage. — KFM

"My father said if you're honest no one will complain," Kelsey Kopecky of Kopecky Family Band sings over the flirtatious, whistle-backed guitar riffs on "Are You Listening." There ain't much to bitch about when it comes to this Nashville six-piece. Along with co-founder and vocalist Gabriel Simon, the Kopecky's folk-rock jams are better experienced in the flesh. The group has been steady traveling and making tunes for the past seven years, but it was the exceptional 2012 debut, Kids Raising Kids, featuring the punchy "Heartbeat" and anthem-esque "The Glow," that caught the attention of fans and critics alike. While its members may not be connected by blood, Kopecky is a family band worth partying with when they hit the stage. Sun., May 11, 6:45 p.m. Boulevard stage. — Gavin Godfrey

Amid a massive bill of heavy hitters featured throughout this year's Shaky Knees lineup lies the Violent Femmes — a true American alternative rock classic. The Milwaukee trio harbors a spate of mid-'80s deep cuts, such as "Please Do Not Go," "Add It Up," and "Gone Daddy Gone," and when singer and guitarist Gordon Gano, bassist Brian Ritchie, and drummer Brian Viglione (also of Dresden Dolls fame) tear into the seminal "Blister in the Sun," it's nearly impossible not to do the whole clap-clap, clap-clap thing during the verses. When it comes to alternative rock, the Femmes are an institution, and after more than 30 years the group still puts on a must-see show. Sun., May 11, 7:45 p.m. Ponce de Leon Stage. — Kelly StrouP"

The group has been steady traveling and making tunes for the past seven years, but it was the exceptional 2012 debut, Kids Raising Kids, featuring the punchy "Heartbeat" and anthem-esque "The Glow," that caught the attention of fans and critics alike. While its members may not be connected by blood, Kopecky is a family band worth partying with when they hit the stage. Sun., May 11, 6:45 p.m. Boulevard stage. — Gavin Godfrey

Amid a massive bill of heavy hitters featured throughout this year's Shaky Knees lineup lies the Violent Femmes — a true American alternative rock classic. The Milwaukee trio harbors a spate of mid-'80s deep cuts, such as "Please Do Not Go," "Add It Up," and "Gone Daddy Gone," and when singer and guitarist Gordon Gano, bassist Brian Ritchie, and drummer Brian Viglione (also of Dresden Dolls fame) tear into the seminal "Blister in the Sun," it's nearly impossible not to do the whole clap-clap, clap-clap thing during the verses. When it comes to alternative rock, the Femmes are an institution, and after more than 30 years the group still puts on a must-see show.

This year I might need to get a loan due to the staggering amount of stuff I want. But sadly, that's not going to happen. So instead, I made a wish list. Here are my top 10 picks for this years Record Store Day.



1.[http://www.recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/6937| Die Kreuzen: Cows and Beer 7-inch (also available as a 12-inch according to the RSD webpage. Flabbergasting, I know.)
This album contains the speed and ferocity a good hardcore record should, while incorporating more technical riffs and flanking tempo changes.



2. [http://www.recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/7100|Public Enemy: It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back LP.
It Takes A Nation ... is an undeniable hip-hop classic that showcases how music can have powerful social and political commentary while still being energetic, and, well, fun to listen to.



3. OutKast: Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik LP.

The ATLien's freshman release that will keep your head bobbing from the first track to the last. A true hip-hop classic that just had its 20-year anniversary. 



4. Christian Death: The Edward Colver Edition 7-inch.

A perfectly whiney Goth-rock/Death-rock 7-inch including some of Edward Colver's (who helped document hardcore punk at its peak in the 1980s) photographs of Christian Death's original line up.



5. [|Joy Division: An Ideal For Living ] 12-inch.

A reissue of a 2010 remastering of Joy Divisions 1978 EP which contains some classic tracks from the bands early days including "Warsaw" and "Leaders of Men."



6. Pissed Jeans: The Very Best of Sub Pop LP.

Pissed Jeans is angry but no one knows why. This gritty, distorted noise rock record includes four live performances, showcasing the band's furious sound that is most certainly meaner live.



7. Otis Redding: Pain in my Heart LP.

A soul staple and Redding's most recognized album. Not only will this be the 50th anniversary of its release, its in original mono.



8. Ramones: Meltdown With The Ramones 10-inch.

This record has never been released in the U.S. and was initially used as a promo-only sampler. 



9. Dinosaur, Jr.: Visitors 7-inch collection.

If you like Dinosaur, Jr. than this is something your going to want to grab. It's a collection of the bands first four singles and a bonus 5th 7-inch including the tracks "Show Me The Way" and a cover of the Byrds "Feel A Whole Lot Better." The coolest aspect of this package is that it's celebrating the art of Maura Jaspers who did most of the band's album covers.

 

10. Sam Cooke: Ain't that good news LP.

A reissue of Cooke's final studio album, which includes soulful legendary hits "A Change Is Gonna Come" and "Another Saturday Night."  Ain't that good news is also celebrating its 50th anniversary.]

*Van Buren Fowler
 Legendary Atlanta rock band Drivin' N Cryin' lost one of its former members on March 7.  Guitarist and shredder Van Buren Fowler, 54, was an influential member of the Southern rock 'n' roll staple, and helped shape the sound of DNC during the high point of the bands career. Fowler roadied for Kansas, worked and played with R.E.M., and recorded four albums with Kevn Kinney and DNC. He is the stuff of rock legends  -  a man who had to have both knees replaced because he roadied for so long. Yikes!

Although Fowler was not an original member of Drivin N Cryin, he was brought in around 1988 after the group released its first LP, Scarred But Smarter. Kevn Kinney, DNC's frontman and founding member, shared his thoughts about Fowler's relationship with the band, his departure, and their final performance together.

Tonight (Sat., April 5), the 40 Watt Club in Athens hosts the Buren Fowler Rock N Roll Celebration w/ Drivin N Cryin, the Rattlers, and more. Cash donations for the Fowler family will be taken at the door.

On meeting Van Buren Fowler.

"We meet Buren in St. Louis, traveling on the road. We went to see R.E.M. at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis and they were just on the cover of Rolling Stone that week so that was a really big thing. So we're in the bar with Peter Buck and we play him our new record, Whisper Tames the Lion, and he hates it. He was like, "This is horrible." He loved Scarred But Smarter, but he was like "This is not a great record. I need to produce your next record." And that's how we did our demos for Mystery Road. That same night, Peter introduced me to Buren. Buren was working with R.E.M. at the time. He was a rhythm guitar player and a guitar tech.  I think he worked for Mike Mills at the time; Peter's guitar tech was named Microwave. So Peter said, "Hey, you should get Buren to play with you," and I was like "yeah, I think I'll do that." So Buren came and played banjo and octo-guitar, you know, he played some country licks; it was really a lot of fun. But eventually it morphed into, the more and more we played and the more we listened to the music, he kept influencing me, as far as embracing our heavy metal fantasy world. He already had the long hair anyway so we were like "yeah" and just started to play more metal. It started to become a part of the band. You know, it was fun. It was fun to be in a metal band fore a while."

              jump        
"The first record he (Buren) did with us was Mystery Road, and then he did McDougal Blues with me, and then we did Fly Me Courageous. Smoke was his last record. So he did four records with us. When we went to Geffen Records, we switched out. Buren loved WASP, he loved Ronnie James Dio, he loved metal, he loved Randy Rhoads, and he could do all those licks. Man, he loved all that stuff."

Fowler's departure.

"I changed the direction of Drivin' N Cryin' when we went to Geffen Records, when Island dropped us after the Smoke record, which was a disaster. But I think its one of our best records musically. I think it's just unapologetically rock; rock in your face. I wanted to call it Fuck You but they wouldn't let me. When we changed directions and Buren left the band, I think it was devastating to him, unfortunately. And I think he never recovered from it. I didn't know what to do, you know? Then he moved away. I think he worked for Louisville Slugger for a while making baseball bats, or that's what I heard. The only thing he loved more than rock 'n' roll was baseball. That was his second passion after guitar."

"Buren was more of a showman whereas I wasn't. He would put his foot on the monitor and rock out. He loved taking pictures with fans. He was just a sweet gentle soul. He loved the fans; he loved the people. He'd go talk to the people after the show, whereas I used to just runaway. I was terrified to share myself with people, you know? (Laughs) He was a very important part of one of our biggest years. We miss him. We always played with him later on. Anytime he would show up at one of our shows in Atlanta we'd always let him share the stage. He never stopped thinking about the dream. I just played with him and Peter Buck in Athens. Mike Mills was playing, Peter Buck, everybody was up there. It was great. I didn't know it would be the last time we would play together. Michael Stipe was in the audience and R.E.M. was on stage and Buren was playing "Straight to hell," so you know, that makes me feel good.""

*Van Buren Fowler
 Legendary Atlanta rock band [http://www.drivinncryin.com|Drivin' N Cryin'] lost one of its former members on March 7.  Guitarist and shredder Van Buren Fowler, 54, was an influential member of the Southern rock 'n' roll staple, and helped shape the sound of DNC during the high point of the bands career. Fowler roadied for [http://www.kansasband.com|Kansas], worked and played with [http://remhq.com/index.php|R.E.M.], and recorded four albums with [http://www.kevnkinney.com|Kevn Kinney] and DNC. He is the stuff of rock legends  -  a man who had to have both knees replaced because he roadied for so long. Yikes!

Although Fowler was not an original member of Drivin N Cryin, he was brought in around 1988 after the group released its first LP, ''Scarred But Smarter''. Kevn Kinney, DNC's frontman and founding member, shared his thoughts about Fowler's relationship with the band, his departure, and their final performance together.

*Van Buren Fowler
 Legendary Atlanta rock band Drivin' N Cryin' lost one of its former members on March 7.  Guitarist and shredder Van Buren Fowler, 54, was an influential member of the Southern rock 'n' roll staple, and helped shape the sound of DNC during the high point of the bands career. Fowler roadied for Kansas, worked and played with R.E.M., and recorded four albums with Kevn Kinney and DNC. He is the stuff of rock legends  -  a man who had to have both knees replaced because he roadied for so long. Yikes!

Although Fowler was not an original member of Drivin N Cryin, he was brought in around 1988 after the group released its first LP, Scarred But Smarter. Kevn Kinney, DNC's frontman and founding member, shared his thoughts about Fowler's relationship with the band, his departure, and their final performance together.

Tonight (Sat., April 5), the 40 Watt Club in Athens hosts the Buren Fowler Rock N Roll Celebration w/ Drivin N Cryin, the Rattlers, and more. Cash donations for the Fowler family will be taken at the door.

On meeting Van Buren Fowler.

He loved Scarred But Smarter, but he was like "This is not a great record. I need to produce your next record." And that's how we did our demos for Mystery Road. That same night, Peter introduced me to Buren. Buren was working with R.E.M. at the time. He was a rhythm guitar player and a guitar tech.  I think he worked for Mike Mills at the time; Peter's guitar tech was named Microwave. So Peter said, "Hey, you should get Buren to play with you," and I was like "yeah, I think I'll do that." So Buren came and played banjo and octo-guitar, you know, he played some country licks; it was really a lot of fun. But eventually it morphed into, the more and more we played and the more we listened to the music, he kept influencing me, as far as embracing our heavy metal fantasy world. He already had the long hair anyway so we were like "yeah" and just started to play more metal. It started to become a part of the band. You know, it was fun. It was fun to be in a metal band fore a while."
