Lets take a step back from the horrible reality of the new creeping death that is happening in the world and appreciate the superhero that is Deb Levine from Lady Beast. Besides her killer chops, she runs a festival (metal immortal fest) and is always down to help out other artist, especially women.
Lady Beast are pure metal perfection and have been since their first release. Everything from the writing and music to the stage presence and energy is rock n roll. Even though Deb is gorgeous and talented, she also commands respect. She is leading the way for the future women in metal and I can't think of a better role model to do so.
The Vulture's Amulet is the bands latest masterpiece which is being teased by two new singles. "Runes and Rust" and "The Gift" are both riff heavy, blistering traditional heavy metal. The band has a lot to say both musically and lyrically and although I love all their releases, I feel this might be the album that finally wakes up the male dominated metal world. Between this and the new Solicitor album, 2020 is the year of Women in Heavy Metal. When you have bands that emulate this much talent, there is no excuse not to have gender equality at festivals.
Now that the world has stopped, there is no excuse not to listen as much new music as possible. The Vulture's Amulet will be out April 3rd and is available for pre-order. I can't predict what will happen in the future, but I can assure you the new Lady Beast album is going to fucking rule.
Now, go wash your hands.
