Noisey has unleashed the fourth episode of their NOLA: Life, Death, & Heavy Blues from the Bayou documentary series.  The episode features interviews with Sammy Duet, Crowbar, Down, Philip Anselmo and more.  This is a great series that needs to be seen.

You can find the first three installments here and here.

Over the past few weeks, Vice’s music division, Noisey, has released a documentary in pieces about the New Orleans, LA music scene.  Today they released the third episode.  I have to say, these have been fun and informative to say the least.  Let’s hope Noisey keeps more quality material coming at us rather than more depictions about how Kanye West thinks he’s Jesus…with a fat wife.

The previous two episodes can be found here.

Slow Southern Steel, the documentary directed by David Lipke and Rwake’s Chris Terry is now available for streaming.  The best part of the deal is that it’s streaming for my favorite price, FREE!  Making it’s debut in 2007 in select theaters, it’s been unavailable for purchase or online viewing until now.  This is most likely a move to capitalize off of Noisey’s upcoming NOLA: Life, Death and Heavy Blues from the Bayou.  A review is forthcoming.  You can watch the film below.

A ton of releases hit the streets this week.  Here are my winners, losers, and my big surprise.

Winners:

Crowbar – Symmetry In Black (eOne)  Leaving Down last year to focus on Crowbar was definitely a wise move by Kirk Windstein.  His focus for Symmetry in Black is impressive.  The riffs, those mighty riffs.  They are packed into this album like sardines in a can, and while a really enjoyed the Kingdom of Sorrow records, the riffs felt wasted with Jamie Jastas voice.  Not an issue here.
