Concert Review: Metal Monday At The Underground

While respectable members of society are loosening their ties and resting before another workday, the metalheads come to Evangelo’s to play. What mischief and mayhem transpires on such a night? Here’s a brief recap: Carrion Kind were a fantastic opening act. With it’s insanely catchy guitar riff, Memoirs Of A Lost Civilization is inevitably the first in their setlist, and until recently was the strongest in their arsenal.  But hark, what noise through yonder speaker … read...

Album Review: Savage Wizdom – A New Beginning

Santa Fe based power-metal champions Savage Wizdom have finally released their highly anticapated album, A New Beginning. Before I even opened the CD case, the bitchin’ cover art already had me enraptured with this album. The striking image of a snake devouring its own tail is an ancient emblem with profound symbolism, a perfect image to embody the album,  exemplefying the triumph over adversity and the cyclic nature of good vs evil. The music opens … read...

Upcoming Albums

Savage Wizdom’s newest offering, aptly titled A New Beginning, is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2014. You can tell just by the cover art that this will be one epic album. Not only will it feature brand new songs, but also a re-recorded edition of Do Or Die. Oh, and did I mention that Blaze freakin’ Bayley does guest vocals? The tracklisting is as follows: 01) Sands of Time… 02) A … read...

Concert Review: Metal At Warehouse 21

Unfortunately, Anomaly broke down and were unable to make it to this gig. Those of us who just had to see them got a second chance tonight at Hooligan’s Nightclub in Albuqurque. Anyway, the incredibly talented Savage Wizdom took their place at the last minute, and drew in a huge audience of loyal fans. The night was started off by Exalt, who play a fusion of Hip-Hop and Metal. Their musical style is in the … read...

Sneak Peek: Savage Wizdom: A New Beginning

Posted by on May Mon, 2013 in Concert Review, Folk Metal, Hard Rock, Heavy/Traditional Metal, Lifestyle, Power Metal, Reviews, Symphonic | 0 comments

This post is dedicated to the recently deceased Jeff Hanneman.  Savage Wizdom has some epic tricks up their sleeves for their upcoming album, tentatively titled A New Beginning. This gem will feature guest vocals of the legendary vocalist/songwriter/sex god Blaze Bayley! This alone would make A New Beginning  a turning point in Savage Wizdom’s career, even though it’s the only full length CD after the debut of No Time For Mercy. This album promises all-new … read...

New Albums Of 2013

Posted by on Apr Fri, 2013 in Black Metal, Power Metal, Thrash | 0 comments

Hey dear readers, I bet all four of you love “Blackened Thrash Hardcore Punk with a touch of Death.” That is how Torture Victim describes themselves, and it pretty much hits the nail on the head. Their music boasts lightning fast riffs with a combination of clean and dirty vocals. I could only find the lyrics for two songs, which appear to be the usual Death Metal canon of genocide, mortality, gore, and legions of the undead. … read...

Recent Concerts: Reliving The Memories

Posted by on Apr Wed, 2013 in Concert Review | 0 comments

Have I mentioned that it’s a pain in the ass to type up reviews on a smart phone? It warrants repeating, regardless. This sucks. But on the bright side, I’ve been so swamped with awesome metal shows that my ears are still ringing. Anyway, here’s what went down recently:   Much like Dante was unable to express the beauty of heaven in his Paradiso, despite the fact that he’s a fuckin’ famous poet, I can not … read...

Pre-emptive Strike

Posted by on Jun Mon, 2012 in Upcoming Shows | 0 comments

My 21st birthday rapidly approacheth. As such, I have made an educated guess that I will be incapacitated for approximately a week thereafter. So this one post will have to last you a while, which is unfortunate because it obviously sucks.  I would post flyers for upcoming shows, but my computer is acting infuriatingly slow, so you will be content to read about whatever Metal-esque thing pops into my head. For starters, the ridiculously talented Savage … read...

I’m still recovering from the aftershock of the most recent concerts, and already bracing myself for the next. If I’m not back within a week, avenge my death. Meanwhile, Futilitarian is looking at a busy week. 3 shows in 8 days is pretty intense. First they’ll be hitting Hooligans Nightclub in Albuqurque, along with 5 other Metal bands. Distances is fucking amazing, and like the Instru-Metal style of Futilitarian, they are trippy and ambient. Night Of Revenge is some … read...
