The Berlin-based power trio once more is driving their musical WEDGE in between many different genres: Garage rock turns progressive while psychedelic guitar lines are tripping over hard rocking riffs. Does this work together? Hell yes! For fans of Deep Purple, MC5, Led Zeppelin or Humble Pie this album is a sure shot. You like fuzz guitars? Hammond organ and vocals trough a swirling Leslie cabinet? More cowbell? You got it. But unlike our beloved rock records from around 1971, which we've heard a hundred times before "Like No Tomorrow" has one huge advantage: It's brand new and the 8 tracks, ranging from 3:00 to 9:00 minutes, deliver a fresh, unspent and unmistakably unique taste to the rock'n'roll menu.
Prior to the formation of Queens of the Stone Age, bassist/singer Nick Oliveri recorded some originals with ex-Kyuss bandmates Josh Homme (guitar) and Brant Bjork (drums), plus Karma to Burn's Rob (drums) and others.
But once recording was completed, Oliveri decided to shelve the tapes; it wasn't until several years later (well after Queens of the Stone Age began to establish themselves) that the bassist decided to release the songs on a friend's indie label, Southern Lord Records.
Going by the name Mondo Generator, 11 tracks were compiled for the 2000 release Cocaine Rodeo.
The majority of the songs are much more raw and hardcore/punk-based than Oliveri's output with QOTSA, as evidenced by such tracks as "Shawnette," "Uncle Tommy," "Unless I Can Kill," and "I Want You to Die."
With Dead Planet Oliveri has taken a band once considered a side project and turned it into a full-fledged rock and roll powerhouse.
As has been his trademark when he had written songs with Kyuss or QOTSA, this album just oozes with punk rock ethos.
Combined with the stoner rock influences that he helped create, this album is a study in excess and self-indulgence. And that is exactly what makes it so damn good.
"...FROM THE EARTH TO THE SKY AND BACK" is the perfect soundtrack for a mind travel or a real journey on a hot hot summertime day.
Acoustic and electric guitars, percussion, banjo and pedal steel mixed with mellow vocals that let you dream away.
This is the band’s sophomore album and is composed of 14 songs. The first part of the album is inspired by a classic country attitude mixed with a spaghetti western sound. The rest of the album presents different moments, while conjuring up atmospheres reminiscent of Santana, The Eagles, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Spirit, Captain Beyond and recent Motorpsycho, we can simply file the genere under : Acoustic, Melodic, Psychedelic Folk.
And here we go with the last of the No Hits At All serie by mister Nick Oliveri!!
This is the Vol 666 and is really juicy!!
12 songs taken from the personal stash of the mighty Nick featuring a lot of artists he played with during these last years.
This is a gem! A rare pearl found in the deep sea, a MONDO GENERATOR 2010 lost album !!
The vocals are ripped as usual, some songs are screamed but yet others feature melodic lines. The album has a punk-stoner sound with a desert rock attitude.
All the songs are written by Nick Oliveri “ Rex Everything”.
The album features the cover of “Dog Food” by Iggy Pop with Dave Grohl on drums. Nick knows how to surprise us all the time! He picked this lost gem from his secret stash!
The artwork is by Bangalore.
Mondo Generator are back!!! Eight years since the last record... this is a dream for all the fans of the band!
A mixture of speed rock, american punk and hardcore with the typical Oliveri style. You can hear the old school roots of Black Flag and Dead Kennedys with a pinch of heavy rock and sometimes shades of stoner.
You can feel the dust and the sand of the Californian desert mixed with the rotten smell of a dirty basement used as venue! The songwriting is never ordinary and keeps the listener alive for the duration of the entire album. The vocal melodies are always interesting and give the music its trademark sound. You can definitely hear the punk attitude of QOTSA band with whom Nick played for long time.

High Reeper’s self titled debut is an unapologetic punch to the face for fans of early ‘70s proto-metal. The sound and smell of leather, weed, boozing, gambling and death permeate the record from start to finish. Nine tracks that run from uptempo straight ahead rock, to slowed down, heavy, early doom. With a rhythm section throwing down grooves that are deeper than the darkest abyss and guitars big enough to put a hole in your chest, the record’s finale hits just as hard as its opening track. Vocals that soar above the guitars with laser like precision, while delivering a direct hit to your soul.
Comes in a six panel, double gatefold digipak.
Reissue with alternative cover art and two bonus tracks
"Come on and do the toxic waltz. Kick your friend in the head and have a ball." These words by EXODUS fully apply to 'Kick Me Silly - VC III', the third full-length frontal assault by VENOMOUS CONCEPT.
The grindcore veterans (Kevin Sharp and Dan Lilker of BRUTAL TRUTH, Shane Embury and Danny Herrera of NAPALM DEATH, and John Cooke of CORRUPT MORAL ALTAR) recorded 'Kick Me Silly' in 2014, continuing in their trademark hardcore punk style.
You will find these fire-starters branching out dynamically in order to perfect their art of grinding rock! Like a coiled punk rock porcupine OOK is fully charged and ready for attack with 'Kick Me Silly - VC III'! Kick ass!
