Hell In July *Updated*

  Hell In July is the  aptly named national tour featuring Six Feet Under, Decrepit Birth, and Cannabis Corpse. *UPDATE*  The show made headline news, and here’s a link to the article. The show got off to a good start with Oscillation. The vocals are uber-deep growls, and occasionally reverb with an effect that resembles Autopsy’s sound. The guitars and bass are aggressive and catchy in the vein of the Deathcore genre. This band is comprised … read...

Band Profile: Eat A Helicopter

Posted by on Jul Sun, 2012 in Album Review, Band Profile, Death Metal, Deathcore, New Releases | 0 comments

Do you like stuff like Whitechapel and Chelsea Grin, but your concert budget consists of of $20 and a bottle of cheap vodka? Worry no longer, comrades. Eat A Helicopter is just as awesome at a fraction of the cost. If you don’t believe me, here’s a music video. If you like what you hear, buy the album Descend Into Darkness,  available on Itunes. The drumming is the typical Metal style, a relentless machine-gun … read...

Last Minute Update

So… You may or may not remember my chemically altered post from 2 am last night (this morning?). Regardless, there is a change in today’s concert. See this flyer? It’s a liar.  Unfortunately, the Victory Heights comeback show is going to be sans- Victory Heights. I know, that’s retarded. On the plus side, The Untold Hour are going to be replacing them. For some reason, they don’t have any music online, but apparently their influences … read...

Of all the seasons, Spring is the least Metal. That’s probably why my writing has sucked lately… There’s no brooding cold and darkness for me to bitch about. There’s just a bunch of ugly pastel colors and dorky “SPRING into savings!” advertisements for department stores. Then again, that is a far more cruel fate to endure than Winter is, so I guess Spring is actually pretty messed up. Either way, I need some action in … read...

Unholy Trinity: The Last Of Lucy

This is the final installation of Unholy Trinity, or the three most badass Technical Metal artsits. Hailing from Orange County, CA, the only appropriate choice to conclude this series, is the intricate psychosis known as The Last Of Lucy. The Last Of Lucy is painstaking chaos. The mathematical insanity sounds something like a short-curcuiting robot overlord, or the soundtrack of dividing by zero. The vocals are screams and growls, a very raw and organic contrast … read...

Unholy Trinity: Fields of Elysium

This is the second installation of a 3-part review, putting the spotlight on my favorite Technical Death Metal musicians. Today’s post will feature the badassery that is Fields Of Elysium. Metal, presumed dead since the  90’s, has found its afterlife in Fields of Elysium. The atmosphere created by this Santa Fe based band is astronomical, as evidenced by such song titles as Decomposing Celestial Mass and Zeta Reticuli. Although they seem out of this world, … read...

Unholy Trinity: Viraemia

This is a 3-part series in which I will review the best Technical Death Metal bands I’ve ever seen. In a genre as complicated and intense as this, it takes a certain X-factor to stand out against the crowd. The following bands have that type of talent, so let’s start off by giving mad props to Viraemia.   Viraemia has fallen into a common rut, as many of their songs are indistinguishable. However, the trained … read...
