Scene Point Blank is pleased to present a new video from Australia’s King Zog. Titled “Temple’s Temple,” the song comes off their self-titled debut album, which came out earlier this year. With a big chorus and bigger riffs, the doomy anthem is about bracing oneself for the fight, just before going into battle against the crazed warriors of old times.
King Zog’s debut will be released on vinyl for the first time on Dec. 1.
This month Scene Point Blank is excited to feature a new release from Milwaukee’s Fox Face. The band releases Spoil + Destroy, their first full-length, on Nov. 3 on Dirtnap Records. Over half an hour, the raw, blunt and energetic band deliver 12 songs about science, nasty women, and everything else under attack these days.
Or, as Dirtnap puts it, “Fox Face is an eerie musical force that would be just as much at ease holding a séance on a stormy, nighttime beach as they would be throwing a rager in a dark, beer-soaked basement bar.”

I have successfully broken my brain trying to find something new to say about David Bowie. I believe it to be absolutely impossible to speak in new terms on what the musician, actor, artist, and fashion icon meant to the the worlds he showed up in. Countless of us who mourned his death have done so with some type of memoriam, in written word or performance, that hopefully helps to drive the grieving process. Bowie was fearless, continually pushing his ...
