Album Review: Disasterina – LA’s Most Disastrous Drag Queen

Disasterina is a drag queen, performer, and musician based in Los Angeles, California. Her new album, LA’s Most Disastrous Drag Queen, lives up to her over-the-top reputation. Released by Entelodon Records, this album is true to the spirit of electronic dance music. Disasterina’s song structures are ridiculously catchy. This is a throwback to old school techno, capturing the riotous party vibe of classic house music. Sprinkled with elements of humor, the music is varied … read...

Album Review: Tithe – Tithe

  Hailing from Portland OR, this metal trio is heavy handed in all possible ways. From their obscene cover art to their badass lyrical themes, this band is outrageous. No wonder their self titled EP was released on 04/20 of 2017. This is stoner metal if I ever heard it. What many would consider a “bad”trip, I would consider a “dark” or “morbid” trip. Instead of getting scared, I learned to enjoy the macabre images … read...

Band Profile – Burials

Hailing from Portland, OR, this death metal outfit sounds solemn and somber.  Although their bleak music is dissonant, it is profound enough to resonate with like-minded pessimists. The punishing rhythms are insane, offset by melodic virtuosity and atmospheric ambience. The contrast between their acoustic sensitivity and their electrified rage is a paradoxical embodiment of the band. The deep, rolling melodies slam their weight around mightily. These menacing, trippy sludge concoctions are booming with thunderous beats … read...

Old school metallers Kamelot and Exodus were special guests for the performance at San Bernadino, CA on July 1st.  Otherwise, the legendary Iron Maiden were accompanied only by Ghost B.C (often simplified to Ghost) throughout their North American leg of the tour. Before … read...

Album Review: Salt For Knives – An Acute Sense of Mortality

Comprised of rhythm guitarist/vocalist Frank Green (Grinkai), along with Gareth Niles (Rome Incarnate) on lead guitar and bass, Salt For Knives are a Colorado based death metal outfit. Their new record release, An Acute Sense Of Mortality, is a follow up to their debut album, Conglomerate of Misery. This bass-heavy album has a slow-burning, sludgy groove. An Acute Sense of Mortality is a bloody slab of dissonant death metal, served raw with a side of … read...

In fact, KBC have already shared the stage with many of these acts, and have also performed at the world-famous heavy metal mecca, Wacken Open Air. When they … read...

Album Review: Despite Loyalty – Despite Loyalty

  Dark, morbid, and sexy, this self-titled album is quite the debut. Combining elements of industrial music with electro-goth, Despite Loyalty is bass-heavy, fetishized music in the vein of Ministry or even Rob Zombie. Rhythmic hooks, funky beats, distorted guitars, and macabre lyrics converge into a beast that would sound just as good on the dance floor as it would in the mosh pit. Headbangers from any side of the spectrum- from metal to EDM- … read...

Bloodpig: Horrible Music By Worse People / Rx (Split)

Bloodpig is a band whose signature style consists of high octane punk rock energy, angry screams, cacophonous drumming, and dissonant guitars. This split compilation includes two albums: Horrible Music By Worse People (2015) and Rx (2012). Both are noisy, loud, obnoxious, and awesome. This will be a two part review, starting with the first album. When describing this record, two words leap to mind: Nasty and gnarly. The musical techniques used are simple but effective. … read...

EP Review: Untitled – The Screamagers

Although never compiled into a cohesive album, an impressive collection of 15 songs is boasted by horror punk/ psychobilly band The Screamagers. The Misfits are an obvious influence, with their punk rock renditions of vintage horrors: Frankenstein’s monster and his bride, “Zombie Monsters From Outerspace”, and teenage werewolves are their typical song material. Their collection is catchy and fun, even if some songs are ridiculous. In the end, it’s all completely entertaining. As mentioned … read...
