Album Review: Collector – Liberation’s Fall

Collector is an indie metal band from Boston, MA. They have recently self-released their debut album, Liberation’s Fall. This record features fantastic guest musicians like Chris Broderick (Act of Defiance, Ex- Megadeth), and Vicky Psarakis (The Agonist). The band has continued to persevere, even after the loss of their collaborator, colleague, and friend, Warrel Dane (Nevermore, Behemoth, Sanctuary), who passed away in December 2017. This heavy, emotionally charged album does justice to his legacy. The … read...

Band Profile: LostPray

Lostpray have recently uploaded a new music video for their song, Cyberblood. This new music video was released on July 1st, 2018. The morbid humor of the music video is fittingly conveyed with an animated cartoon. There is a serious message behind the comical imagery. Cyberblood is about the irony that we are divided and isolated from each other by the very technology that was intended to connect us. The internet is … read...

Album Review: Deforme – God-Like Strength

(Photo via Moshpits and Movies.) Deforme is a conglomeration of brutal death metal and grind. The gutteral vocals are especially gruesome, with lead vocalist Juan Martinez growling and grunting like a demon from hell. The guitarwork of both Alex Camacho and Joe Baca shreds violently. The bassline from Blair Robey is strong and solid. The drumming is a sturdy skeleton for the whole musical package. No wonder their drummer is called “Beast”.  I love how … read...

Enviro-Metal : 6 Bands to Jam on Earth Day

Before metalheads earned their reputation as total badasses, they were stereotyped as a bunch of geeks and nerds. Consider the 80’s trope of an awkward teen who listens to creepy music. Now in the year 2018, we as a society are much wiser. It is obvious that you can be a radical dude, who is also an activist and intellectual. These different lifestyles aren’t mutually exclusive. Here to prove it are some brutal musicians who … read...

Concert Review: Behemoth, Lamb of God, and Slayer – Summer 2017 Tour

Slayer are arguably the hardest and heaviest thrash metal band out of the Big Four (Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax). Touring with black metal badasses Behemoth and extreme metalcore outfit Lamb of God, they conquered North America for their 2017 summer tour. Their August 19th performance at Isleta Amphitheater in Albuqurque, New Mexico, was especially memorable. Here are the juicy, bloody details: Behemoth, hailing from Poland, play brutally crushing black metal. Their rhythms and … read...

Album Review: Tithe – Tithe

Album Review: Tithe – Tithe

  This Portland, OR based 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 of … read...

Concert Review: Haunted And Damaged Tour at The Underground

The Underground at Evangelo’s is always an excellent venue for louder-than-life, heavy metal mayhem. Touring bands All Hail The Yeti and Final Drive were right at home with local shredders Carrion Kind. Here is historical evidence of the badassery, documented for posterity. Carrion Kind opened up with their killer masterpiece, Memoirs Of A Lost Civilization.   Many other songs from their debut album, The Collapse Of All To Come, have catchy death metal chord progressions that … read...

Posted by on Jul Thu, 2016 in Album Review, Cult Classics, Doom Metal, Grind, Hardcore, Punk, Stoner Metal

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...
