Planting the seed

Chelsey Cope’s new band, Elms, is as earthy and native to Oklahoma as the trees that are their namesake. The soulful folk four-piece’s debut EP, Parallel Lines, was recorded at Bell Labs Recording Studio in Norman and is on its way in September. But the band has already given us a tease, with its first single, “Burn,” going live on SoundCloud on July 14.

Every Time I Die - The Big Dirty


None September 6th, 2007

l style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">"The Big Dirty" is the latest from the band, which follows 2005's "Gutter Phenomenon." ETID may not appeal to the metal purist. There isn't a lot of dark dragon imagery, machine-gun double-bass drums or all-out guitar shredding, but vocalist Keith Buckley, whose voice actually gets better album after album, is about as heavy you can get while still being somewhat understandable.

 

Songs like "A Gentleman's Sport" and "We'rewolf" are classic ETID, fast and heavy. Well, actually just about all of them are fast and heavy. "Leatherneck" features about 80 percent of the album's actual singing, which is surprisingly good, given that Buckley usually grunt-growls in relative pitch to the guitars.

 

If you are going to fight a gaggle of zombies or planning to lead a high-speed chase any time soon, better grab "The Big Dirty."
