Saviours during Fun Fun Fun Fest (more by BBG)
Saviours

There's a fine line between embracing your roots and aping them. While Oakland's Saviours wear their influences proudly ( Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden, Motorhead and gods of the 70/80s riff), the band has always distinguished themselves from their retro-leaning peers with great songwriting and a fun live show. Now Saviours have put away the pipe long enough to craft a new set of beer-soaked stoner jams out on September 6th!

Saviours are preparing Death's Procession, the band's latest set of ass-kickers due on Kemado. The new eight track LP features "The Eye Obscene" and "To the Grave Possessed", the latter of which makes its first appearance in this post. Stream both below, you can almost hear glasses clinking and motorcycles roaring in the background.

Though Saviours will be bypassing NYC on their current trek with Weedeater (are you kidding me?), they will be hitting a ton of East Coast dates. Weedeater though, plays a BrooklynVegan/Osiris event on September 10th at Europa with Oxbow, Bison BC, Fight Amp. Tickets are on sale.

@4:00...metal/heavy rock fans have been around for 40+ years, what makes you think they'll disappear? There will always be metal fans, jazz fans, folk fans, psych fans, kraut fans, hip hop fans, punk fans, etc.

good band but still hard to get over the vocals. Great HM bands had great vocalists, w/out that you're handicapped.

10:07 said it best.

I understand not being able to get past vocals. Personally, i think the vocals make Saviours unique. I think if he sang like a classic HM vocalist, it wouldn't sound as dirty or modern.

To The Grave Possessed sounds killer!!! I love hearing a male vocalist that actually has the fucking heart to sing. This band is fucking genuine.
