MAdMTV meets HEAVY MTL

finally, after years of not even knowing this should exist… MAdM TV is born.
MAdMtvscreenshot
born out of love of music, weird people and wanting to share it with YOU.
when a woman is invited to be the sole female front woman on a weekend of 34 HEAVY bands, in the sexiest city in the north east of the americas, she better equip herself with a modest camera crew and entourage, to feast on the moment… and so we did! Slayer, Mastodon, Molson Beer, need i say more………

dear land of heavy music lovers,
this is an ode to you, in a snapshot of what i think is the best HEAVY MUSIC festival in the world. you can not ask for a better city to host it, and a more passionate (French Canadian!) audience. proud that my home town can bring this life, and obligated to share it. MAdMTV meets HEAVY MTL, Pour Vous, in 4 parts x hope you enjoy as much as we did being there x

PART 1 – Featuring the Lay of the Festival Land, Skeletonwitch and more

PART 2 – Featuring the “Ladies” loving Lamb of God, Rob Zombie and more!

PART 3 – Featuring my love of all things M and Mastodon and Much Much More!

PART 4 – Featuring Dave, magic drummer of Slayer and the HEAVY MTL CROWD!

DISCLAIMER / WARNING:
i was not prepared for making my first televised report. in an attempt to be prepared, i #ASKED the tweeters and facers to help me come up with questions last minute. there was a slew of great questions that came in from mariano, amal, adam, ricky, matt, james, katalyze, en apariencia, jj87, the real osmium, antonio, sarah, sweetice, mayvelin, hate the hate AND MORE> THANK YOU for all your collaboration, but i was scrambling and lost the paper. ended up winging it off the cuff.

Going Live, From Austria!

MAdM Live Video Blog

oh yes, it does FEEL GOOD TO PLAY FOR YOU… YOU AND YOU!

MAdM Tour Peak Nov 09 from MAdM OOOM on Vimeo.

it was so satisfying to get this ship rolling last week, thank you to all the canadian ears and hearts that were pried open with our sounds and sweat. i want to share some backwards memories of it with you ALL. i of course plan on getting to you all soon enough in 2010, but here’s a taste in the meantime x

xMAdMx

p.s. my MAdM Music Shop will launch later this week, and the OOOM EP will be available there. i will keep you posted …
p.p.s meanwhile deep in the night, as promised, the full OOOM Music video will creep into these here players soon. however the robot ghosts have held her hostage in a tower, where she can only watch the world through the reflection of a mirror… when she is freed you will be notified. sorry for the unexpected delay sweets…… x

October Rust, a Must!

Type O Negative: if you do not have the 1996 album October Rust, i give you ’til halloween to get your ears around it and give me a report.

they’ve been living in their own world of melody, goth, metal, norse mythology, wolf and women themes for a long time now. Type O walk to their own march down a dirt path as i witnessed at Northern Lights club just outside of Troy, NY this past weekend. weird venue in an shut down strip mall, but the crowd and show took it to surreal heights of heavy and demented.
born from a brooklyn 80′s thrash metal band, Carnivore, Type O gave birth to their first album Slow, Deep and Hard in 1991. they have not stopped since, despite the controversial legend of type o’s frontman, peter steele.

STEELEMAdM from MAdM OOOM on Vimeo.

he is pretty much unrivaled. who else is a 6’7” rasputin look alike singer bass player with a voice an octave below bass?!¬†who has graced the cover of playgirl and has done time at rikers island jail – an extreme life, born a true blue freak from out of this world, with a great ear for melody, endowed with fangs and wizard green eyes and embodying a wit that would blow anyone out of the goth ball park. it’s freak flesh and blood that makes the world of rock music what it is. music accepts all humans of any shape, size or type. she has no judgement.
not to mention he is one of my few signer-bass-player role models. he and phil lynott sit neck and neck with lemmy hanging over their shoulders of course… (and who really has shoulders like this guy? not me!!!)

thank you goddess music for inviting everyone into it. no matter how “good or bad” you’ve been, if you commit to her, music rewards you with eternal gifts.

last night was- MASTODON – converge – high on fire and dethklok….. thank you.
report coming your way soon… a whole other universe, MIND BLOWING.
still trying to formulate my ode to the new masters….

NEW YORK SHOW OCTOBER 17TH!


Back in the outdoor world, the crisp North Eastern air has tempted the leaves to turn and there are so many MAdM OOOM activities this Pagan month, I dare to say it’s Hunt for the Heart season… Let’s start our communal Fire here:

NEW YORK CITY SHOW!

October 17th 2009, first show in NYC in 1007 years, and the first official USA Sneak Peek to the new Live MAdM (wait ’til my new live band kicks you in the virtual gut!). We were invited by the Royal Flush Festival to participate in both the Film and Live show sides of things.

Saturday October 17th MAdM LIVE at the new Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. You can buy tickets here.
Sunday October 18th OOOM SCREENING at the Anthology Film Archives. You can buy tickets here.

More show info HERE. Please pass it on to all Witches and Vikings you know on Metropolitan Blvd! (anyone in a Witch’s cloak gets to telepathically heal with me)

Our European debut of OOOM the film, happened this week at the fantastical Sitges festival in Spain and we’ve got a screening in the goddess city of New Orleans this week, and more to come. Keep hunting HERE for a screening near you!

OOOM is screening for five months within an honorable Pre-Raphaelite Fine Art Museum exhibit. The opening went on without a hitch but with plenty of witch. “The Lady of Shallot” has a siren song for you and we encourage anyone who plans to indulge in Montreal between now and February to see HER! Hunt for more info HERE.

The season has finally come, pushed by the fire of desire and nurtured by the patience to fight for independence. In the months ahead, the evergrowing world of OOOM will open to you. Thank you for your receiving heart, open ears and hungry eyes!

MAdM T.O….

… finally rocked toronto after too long,
oiling up the rusty joints.
some fast sweaty side stage clips for you…

… and the man who got me my first cassette dj gig, mister beckles, aka pinky carnage, offered humor between bands, in return for boos by the rock crowd… but he devoted himself to OOOM backstage, so i am tickled pink.

… that’s the MAdM NXNE report. merci!
