Fear, Emptiness, Decibel: Stream Saviours’ Cover of Blue Öyster Cult’s “Hot Rails to Hell,” Featuring Wino!
Before there were blogs there were these things called magazines, and the only metal magazine we still get excited about reading every month is Decibel. Here’s managing editor Andrew Bonazelli…
Nobody’s heard from Oakland stoner/thrash heroes Saviours in four years; we reveal at least part of the reason why in our July studio report: a little member tunrnover (bassist Andy Anderson has joined the fold), a little relocation (the quartet is now split between L.A. and Oakland) and a little label-hopping (Kemado to Listenable). Fifth album Palace of Vision will be unveiled later this year, and according to drummer Scott Batiste, “if [2011’s Death’s Procession] was death, this one is the post-apocalyptic afterlife or rebirth.” Daunting! We’re sold!
What better way to reintroduce Saviours to the world than a drooling fanboy’s wet dream: the band joins forces with living legend Wino (Saint Vitus, the Obsessed, etc.) to take on Blue Öyster Cult’s classic “Hot Rails to Hell” for the Decibel Flexi Series. Silver-on-green plastic, Billy Anderson at the knobs and extreme vintage chugging. What could possibly go right? Everything. Saviours and Wino’s tag team will appear in the September Decibel, featuring the mighty Ghost on the cover. Burn your eyes and your ears out right here.
The June 2015 issue of Decibel also features Baroness, Cattle Decapitation, and Autopsy, and can be purchased here. But why not just get a full subscription to make sure you never miss one of these awesome flexis?
