Album Review: Cripple – Fuck Your Comfort

This band is “radical” in every sense of the word. Their music is extreme in all aspects. It’s fast, it’s loud, and it’s offensive as balls. Although a death metal influence is apparent, Cripple veers on the punk edge of the thrash spectrum. The simple riffs are short and catchy, with ornate solos. The violent vocals are pissed-off tirades of angry lyrics. The drums are crashing and rolling like a 7 car pileup. The result … 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...

5 Heavy Bands for People Who Don’t Like Metal (Yet)

Even as a longtime fan of the genre, I can see why heavy metal is not for everyone. Blood, guts, and gore tend to scare a large portion of normal society. However, metal is also surprisingly inclusive. Many bands that are too offbeat or experimental to fit into any other genre are often classified as “metal”, and even die-hard rockers have respect for talented musicians in other genres. Empirical evidence mirrors my own taste, showing … 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...

EP Review: Untitled – The Screamagers

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...

Concert Review: Bathhouse, Heatdust, Thou, and The Body at The Cave

Concert Review: Bathhouse, Heatdust, Thou, and The Body at The Cave

This is Déjà Vu all over again. Didn’t The Cave host a nearly identical line-up a few months ago? However, this show was cut off halfway through the double-set of Thou and The Body (Yar didn’t even  get to perform at all). Regardless, this was a worthy concert. Here’s what you missed: Bathhouse were coarse, blunt, and louder than hell. The guitars and vocals were agitated, noisy, and distorted. Although the music was extremely chaotic, … read...

Album Review: October File -Monuments

Monuments is a fitting title for the 20014 release by October File, a colossal jewel which captures the band at their zenith. This chimerical beast is a culmination of hardcore, post punk, and industrial influences, making a musical juggernaut of monstrous proportions.  Although they are a relatively obscure band, they have withstood the test of time thus far and have remained a thematic powerhouse for over a decade.  October File have the boastful confidence, and … read...

Album Review: Orange Goblin -Time Travelling Blues

Posted by on Oct Sun, 2015 in Album Review, Blues, Cult Classics, Doom Metal, Punk, Stoner Metal

Album Review: Orange Goblin -Time Travelling Blues

Sink your teeth into this tasty slice of stoner metal.  Although the band Orange Goblin keeps their music chilled out with a classic blues structure and sludgy tempo, the heavily distorted guitar riffs and gruff vocals result in a sound that is gloomy, doomy, and altogether ‘shroomy. The 1998 album Time Traveling Blues is defined by dreamy, distorted noisescapes of altered guitars, giving way to aggravated punk riffs, while screamed vocals remain constant and at … read...
