This week we’re turning over the Sunday Slaylist to something a little different – we want you to go buy something. On Monday 18 February, Pat Egan, Relapses Records’ Director of Retail Sales, died following a the result of complications with a case of pneumonia. To raise money for Pat’s daughter’s college fund, the folks over at Relapse have gone and put together a compilation of 20 of the finest bands ever to have worked with the label – and we think it’d be a damn fine gesture if a few of our readers joined us in buying it, in recognition of the awesome music Pat helped bring us over the years, as well as to help out the family of a fellow metal fan when they need it most.
Kingdom of Sorrow
Boasting a line up that includes members of such influential metal bands as HATEBREED, DOWN, CROWBAR, and more, Kingdom of Sorrow has arrived to stake its claim as the band that lives up to its super group status.
The seeds of Kingdom of Sorrow were sown over a decade ago when a 16 year old Hatebreed front man (and avid Crowbar fan) Jamey Jasta introduced himself to Down / Crowbar guitarist Kirk Windstein at a show at Pearl Street in Northampton, Massachusetts. Read more on Last.fm

This week’s entry into Beard of the Week is dedicted to all you part-time beard-wearers out there. We’re talking about the guys who go out on tour and use it as an excuse to ditch the razor and try to see what it’s like being one of the cool kids – the bearded ones – for a while.

I mean, it’d be far too overly-simplistic just to describe Kingdom of Sorrow as “Hatebreed-meets-Down”, wouldn’t it? Just because it’s the side-project of Hatebreed’s little pitbull, Jamey Jasta, and Down/Crowbar six-stringer, Kirk Windstein. Well, erm, except, errr, it would be too simple, were for the fact that that’s pretty much exactly what the new Kingdom of Sorrow album sounds like.
