Happy Festivus! In case you’re burned out on Bing Crosby, Burl Ives, and are ready to go postal at the mere mention of “Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime,” the jolly (not that) old elves in Swarm of Eyes have slapped together a holiday track, covering “Nuttin For Christmas” – featuring guest vocals on the intro by The O.G. L.O.G.A.N., a young metal lad. Consider this our gift to you… and the world! You’re welcome.
You can check out “Nuttin’ For Christmas” on Bandcamp, if you’d like a little something stronger with your eggnog (or soy nog, if eggs and dairy ain’t your thing). The guitars crunch. The vocals growl. And they even manage to sneak in a covert F-bomb or two. #SoMetal
And if you’re so inclined to give the gift of music to someone on your list or just kick over some coin to us because your heart grew three sizes today, please feel free to name your price. Or just listen to it for free. That’s okay. Really. It’s okay.
The song is just a taste of (non-holiday themed) things to come from Swarm of Eyes. They’re currently recording their second album, an EP, for release in 2016.
Thanks again and from the Swarm of Eyes family to yours, here’s hoping you all have a Happy Holiday and a great 2016!
Hello, Muddah. Hello, Fadduh.
Greetings from Camp
Riffs are good here.
Swarm of Eyes is better.
My face is melted off
So I’m having trouble writing this damn letter.
Yes, Swarmies. Another summer has officially come to an end. While you were barbecuing, putting firecrackers in your mouth, or stealing your ex-girlfriend’s brush from her purse and making little dolls out of her hair at camp, the Swarm of Eyes guys were hard at work, making the world a more metal place, both separately and together.
So how did the lovable lads spend their summer vacation? So glad you asked! (more…)
Yes, we are well aware that “The Birthday Bash in Beverly” sounds like a bad, late ’90s Skinemax movie but (much like the cast of a Skinemax movie), a great time was had by all! Swarm of Eyes, with special guests KATET and 138, headlined a rollicking good time at the Spotlight Tavern in Beverly, Massachusetts.
Gathered together to celebrate Swarm of Eyes frontman Randy’s
slow march toward decrepitude birthday, the three bands were the ones to give New England metal fans the gift of face-melting metal that keeps on giving until you are a pummeled pile of gelatinous goo, ready to be scraped off the floor and reconstituted to bang your head into oblivion all over again.
