This week for our Metal Issue, BORN OF FIRE and the Boston Phoenix
raised their swords together and compiled this killer 15-track
homegrown metal compilation, The Phoenix Born of Fire Volume 1, which
you can listen to or download after the jump for zero dollars and zero cents. Plus: info on our issue-release party and end of summer BBQ at O'Brien's.
Nothing says TGIF quite like gore, boobs, and metal, and well thank the Lord Benny Grotto this new MOTHERBOAR video for "Croctosquatch" has all three. We've been kinda all up in the 'Boar's business lately -- see our Out: Destroying Allston column from last week's paper as well as the Derek Kouyoumjian photo slideshow, from their album release party last month at Great Scott -- but this video had to be posted.
Google MOTHERBOAR and you’ll get motherboards. This could be because the five-piece medley-metal juggernaut simply haven’t yet surfaced to their proper place atop the stoner-sludge dude chain. But we like to think it’s really because Google simply can’t handle their shit. We dare you to go directly to their Facebook page — where their newest album, The Beast Becomes The Servant, is freely streaming for a limited time — and listen all the way from “Croctosquatch” to “Zombie Vomit.
