Mr. Bungle recently announced a short fall tour with several shows hitting the east coast. The avant-garde thrash metal martyr’s will be kicking off the tour at Rams Head Live in Baltimore, MD on September 5th. This is a dream show for me and anyone that calls themselves a “metalhead.” The band’s lineup consists of original members Mike Patton, Trevor Dunn, and Trey Spruance alongside Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. Wow. That’s incredible.

Anyway, tickets for the show at Rams Head Live are available HERE. Tickets for all other shows on the fall tour are available HERE. Be sure to buy your tickets asap. I expect sold out venues and frenzied crowds. This tour will be historic. Come join us!

Dead Cross II

Just in time for the holidays, American hardcore “supergroup” Dead Cross released their second full-length album, II, on Ipecac Recordings this past October. The album is a concoction of musical treatments, doused with innovative riffs of gothic proportion, drummed up from the ash of burnt angel wings. It assaults the mind as it slowly peels the skin from the back of your neck. An entourage of metal’s finest, drilling distorted bass riffs into a tight metal frame, led by the ethereal uprise and brutal assault of Mike Patton’s vocals. A group of signature personas co-authoring new anthems of isolation and hatred towards war, global dominance, extreme consumerism, toxic masculinity, insanity, and fear-mongering. A scathing shitstorm of misanthropy aimed at society at large.

Anyway, continue reading below for my full review. Visit the Ipecac Recordings Website for Dead Cross music and merch. Album review by Joseph Strand.

Mr. Bungle: The Raging Wrath of The Easter Bunny Demo

Avant-garde metal martyr’s Mr. Bungle released the best thrash metal album of 1986 on October 30, 2020. Possibly one the best things to come out of what would end up becoming such a hellish year. Of course I’m referring to Bungle’s fourth studio album, The Raging Wrath of The Easter Bunny Demo. A demo most have never heard, and one I thought would never be legitimately re-recorded and released as an album. Eureka!

This album is fucking awesome. Beautiful and brutal. That’s about all I can say. It’s a true soundtrack for the times, particularly in the US, but also for the world’s chaos at large. With legends like Mike Patton, Scott Ian, Dave Lombardo, Trevor Dunn, and Trey Spruance, how can Mr. Bungle go wrong?!? They can’t. Anyway, in this album review Hazy Eye Music Media’s contributor Joseph Strand reviews The Raging Wrath of The Easter Bunny Demo by Mr. Bungle. Continue reading below for Joseph’s full album review.

Justin Pearson

Hazy Eye Music Media is proud to announce the first interview in a series of interviews I’m currently conducting with some of my favorite artists. I’m stepping outside of my comfort zone and have begun picking the brains of some phenomenal musicians. It’s extremely unfortunate that there will likely be no live shows to attend during the remainder of 2020, but that’s not going to stop me from interacting with my musical peers.

Anyway, check it out! I, Andy Jillson, was fortunate enough to interview Justin Pearson earlier this week. Justin is a unique vocalist and bass guitar player, and is also the owner of his own record label, Three One G Records. He has had a prolific music career thus far, and there seems to be no end to his creativity. He is currently a member of Dead Cross, The Locust, Planet B, and Deaf Club.
