Sometimes you just have to let it all out, and that’s something Scott “Wino” Weinrich has been doing for twenty years, in such bands as the Obsessed, Saint Vitus, Spirit Caravan, Place of Skulls, and Shrinebuilder. The heavy metal hero has teamed up with longtime friend and fellow guitarist Jim “Sparky” Kar — the two also share a love of “Mesoamerican stuff and ancient cultures” — to form the doom metal band Premonition 13, along with drummer Matthew Clark and bassist Brian Daniloski. Their debut album, appropriately titled 13 (Volcom, June 2011), starts slowly with the nine-minute “B.E.A.U.T.Y.,” experimenting with some Pink Floyd madness, before ratcheting it up on such heavy tunage as “Hard to Say” and “Deranged Rock N’ Roller.” The final track, “Peyote Road,” gives an indication of where their minds might have been when they wrote and recorded some of these songs; they freely admit that the psychedelic video for “La Hechicera De La Jeringa” includes footage taken during an unnamed band member’s acid trip at a Mayan temple. Wino might have recently turned fifty, but he hasn't turned down the volume one iota. Before heading out on their European tour, Premonition 13 will make one last stop in the United States, on November 17 at the heavy metal haven known as Saint Vitus Bar (where else?) in Greenpoint, joined by the Gates of Slumber and Mount Olympus.
