The Witzard Proudly Presents... "The Adventures of DR. VOODUN" Starring: Roughneck Jihad & Solomon Strange (E.S.P. Teaser)

It's truly great when The Internet works in mysterious, positive ways... for example, a few months ago, The Diabolical Doctor Strange reached out to me asking if I would be able to help get him in touch with Third Sight emcee, Roughneck Jihad. After checking with Jihad first, I, of course, obliged because, quite honestly, who wouldn't want to hear a collaborative effort from The Diabolical Doctor Strange AND Roughneck Jihad?!!!??! It's been a couple months now, through which I've been getting regular status updates from The Diabolical Doctor Strange AKA Solomon Strange, via Facebook Messenger; The Witzard Proudly Presents... "The Adventures of DR. VOODUN" Starring: Roughneck Jihad & Solomon Strange (E.S.P. Teaser.) So, just to be clear, this is a video teaser/preview of Roughneck Jihad & Solomon Strange's collaborative EP, or E.S.P. AKA "Extra-Sensory Perception," seemingly entitled "The Adventures of DR. VOODUN." It appears as though "DR. VOODUN" might be a riff on or homage to Marvel Comics' character, Brother Voodoo (Jericho Drumm) who ultimately, ends up replacing Doctor Strange as Sorcerer Supreme in The New Avengers #53 and is thereby referred to as "Doctor Voodoo" and "vodun" is another term for "voodoo."

"This is going to be a crazy record. Myself and Solomon Strange collaboration. This is just the teaser the full-length is coming soon," Juan L. Betts (Roughneck Jihad) exclaimed on Facebook. It appears as though The Adventures of DR. VOODUN E.S.P. will contain 5 songs, 5 remixes, and 10 instrumentals. One early stand-out cluster of rhymes is: "Never ghostwritten / I'm the author / Your rhymes are much softer / I spit venom / Eddie Brock Venom / Rattlesnake venom / Deadly, deadly venom / I split venom / Neurotoxin venom / F**k Peter Parker and his sonic weapons venom..." However, over the course of the next 8-9 minutes, Roughneck Jihad somehow manages to effortlessly shout-out everyone from Darth Bane (Star Wars) to Foster The People. It appears as though "The Adventures of DR. VOODUN" features about 3 tracks from the upcoming E.S.P. along with 3+ minutes of audio from an unspecified anime/manga series. While we wait for further release details concerning The Adventures of DR. VOODUN, I strongly urge you ch-ch-check out Roughneck Jihad & The Diabolical Doctor Strange's latest full-length releases, Juan Sequitur and STRANGE JACQSUN with Sauce Jacqson, respectively.

Honestly, at this point in time, Run The Jewels (RTJ) should require absolutely no introduction... but, just to be safe, here's a brief/obligatory introduction: RTJ consists of rapper/producer and Definitive "Def" Jux co-founder El-P and emcee and OutKast affiliate Killer Mike . Legend has it, El & Mike first met on the set of Mr. Muthaf**kin' eXquire's "The Last Huzzah" (Remix) music video shoot. Soon after, [adult swim] Senior Vice President/Creative Director Jason DeMarco—then, at Williams Street Records—connected Killer Mike with El-P , who would produce his phenomenal 2012 album, R.A.P. Music. Mike , additionally, appeared alongside El on his own 2012 Fat Possum Records album, Cancer 4 Cure, on stand-out track, "Tougher Colder Killer." R.A.P. Music & Cancer 4 Cure were released weeks apart, so fast friends Killer Mike & El-P decided to tour together behind their then-new albums. After the widespread success of said tou

Fake Names is a Punk/Hardcore super-group consisting of vocalist Dennis Lyxzén (Refused, INVSN, SAMURAI,) guitarist/vocalist Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Bad Religion, Dag Nasty,) second lead guitarist/vocalist Michael Hampton (Embrace, The Faith, S.O.A.) bassist Johnny Temple (Girls Against Boys, Soulside, New Wet Kojak,) and, sometimes, drummer Matt Schulz (SAVAK, Holy F*ck, Enon.) "I'm in a new band with some friends from elementary school(!) and a sharp-dressed revolutionary from Sweden," Brian Baker (@brianbakers) posted on Instagram Wednesday morning; of course, referring to Hampton, Temple, and Lyxzén, respectively. Again, it appears as though Schulz is a part-time members of Fake Names , having played live with the band in their early aughts, although, their newly-launched website adds, " Matt [Schulz] played the drums. No synthesizers," within, what appears to be, digital liner notes. Guitarists Brian Baker & Michael Hampton first started j

3 Feet High & Rising: American Ethos Return with Self-titled Full-length Debut Mastered By: Jack "Flaco" Shirley (Conditions Records)

CREDIT: Reid Haithcock American Ethos are a mysterious Punk/Hardcore band based out of New England. I, actually, heard about American Ethos through a recent post made by @simpsonsXcore on Instagram, wherein they re-created the cover for American Ethos' recent self-titled debut full-length. Primarily functioning as the long-time "solo" project of guitarist and frontman Daniel Lajoie, American Ethos has featured a rotating cast of players. First established in 2011, Lajoie's American Ethos released a 3-track Demo Twenty Eleven, followed by a 2015 EP entitled Cosmetics​, and yet another EP in 2018 called Futurism. Last year, right before year's end on December 26th, American Ethos returned once more with their self-titled 12-track debut full-length on Texas-based Conditions Records. For this album, Daniel Lajoie has recruited drummer Mike Moschetto and Ryan Stack, who plays organ on "mulligan" and some guitar licks on "the killing chair" & &
