Mark Morton commented on the release:

“To truly understand the essence of the band Burn The Priest, one must first consider the landscape in which it began: the mid-’90s. Grunge and alternative music ruled the airwaves. Social media and the internet had yet to assume their role as our collective sources for entertainment and cultural exchange. It was a time when DIY ‘zines turned us on to new bands and regional scenes, and ‘copy and paste’ still implied a print shop and a glue stick.”

“As our sound and songs developed, so did our goals… we began playing basement parties and warehouse shows and in doing so, we realized that the energy we were creating was transferable. The shows we played in those squats and warehouses [in Philadelphia] and the people we met there are forever embedded in our collective consciousness and the DNA of our band.”

“Our inauspicious beginnings somehow grew into something none of us had ever even imagined possible, let alone aspired to, however, this is the story of Burn The Priest. The songs we chose to cover on this album reflect that story. They are touchstones from that point in time. The inspiration we gleaned from these bands and these songs carries through our work and our creative pursuits, even to this day. Many thanks to these bands for lighting our fire and endless gratitude to our fans around the world for keeping it lit.”

Randy Blythe also had the following to say about the “Inherit The Earth Cover”:

“I’ve been an Accused fan since I was 14 when they were on the ‘Thrasher Skate Rock Volume 3’ compilation with C.O.C. and all these amazing crossover bands. Their singer Blaine Cook was a huge influence on me, vocally.”

Chris Adler continued:

“‘Inherit The Earth’ hit me in the face soon after I managed to get my grubby mitts on the album sometime around ’88. I got The Accused record at a Yellow Banana record store on Route 1 south of DC while in route back from my ‘counselor’ to my home in Woodbridge, Virginia. I got home and grabbed my board and I rocked it on my Discman. At about 2:12 into the tune the clouds parted above me and on a loudspeaker, God bellowed down to me, ‘RECEIVE YOUR PURPOSE.’ That was the moment I knew that if I tried hard enough, I could convey myself and how I felt — with music. It will never be ‘ours,’ and we know that about all the tunes we’ve covered, but hopefully one of them hit you in the face as I had been, and God will part the clouds for you, too.”

Blythe also added;

“I have a radio show on Gimmie Radio, and [the station] is all metal shows except for mine. I do the punk rock show because I want to show the direct correlation between my band, and the punk scene going back to The MC5 and The Stooges. There is a direct link — look at old pictures of Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, and they’re wearing Misfits, D.R.I., and C.O.C. t-shirts. They fused the technicality of metal with the intensity of punk rock. Before them, metal was like in slow motion. Speed metal bands were listening to Discharge. I beat that drum all the time when I talk to kids.”

Deftones’ Chino Moreno Discusses His New Project Saudade (Bad Brains, Etc.)

Chino Moreno (Deftones) recently offered more information about his new project Saudade, which also features Dr. Know (Bad Brains), John Medeski (Medeski, Martin & Wood), Chuck Doom (Crosses), Mackie Jayson (Cro-Mags, ex-Bad Brains, etc.). He told Team Rock that they have about 12 to 13 songs written, and that they will probably release them all “slowly.”

Moreno said the following:

“Most of it is instrumental. There may be some stuff with me singing on it, but mostly I’m just playing guitar. It’s just fun. At this point it’s not so much a band as a project. These are guys that I admire and I’m lucky to be friends with them – so we made a batch of songs together.”

“Slowly but surely, they will probably come out – but it’s more likely to be something that I leak out or let people hear, as opposed to something we’ll package up and try to sell. That’s not the idea behind it.”
