Noise, which I’m finding to be amazing with the music they cover and the documentaries they make, have released the final two installments of they series on the New Orleans music scene.  All the luminaries from the previous installments make appearances.  Enjoy……and have a hurricane for me!

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.

Noisey had released the first two episodes of their new NOLA: Life, Death, & Heavy Blues from the Bayou documentary series.  Both episodes can be viewed above.  These are must see, as is the Slow Southern Steel documentary, which after years in hiding was finally released a few weeks ago.  It can be seen here.

Upon pressing play on Slow Southern Steel the viewer is met with one harsh reality, life in the south is fucking hard. At least according to the bands profiled in in the film. The common denominator for most of the bands featured in the film is family. That’s where the inspiration and desire to create music comes from. It didn’t matter if it was gospel, soul, rap, or blues, it was the music that family members had that first inspired the musicians. Glenn Campbell’s Rhinestone Cowboy seemed to be the one song most of the interviews had in common. Well, that song and anything from KISS.

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.

Swedish website Rocksverige has conducted an interview with former Pantera and current Down and Philip H. Anselmo and the Illegals about what it takes to make it in the music business.  Some of the answers might surprise you.

We New Him Well, the first single from Down’s just released new album, Down IV, Part II, is now online. Wow, the album title makes me feel the need to do math. Great track though.
