An ominous chorus begins to swell as a deadpan drum is beaten in the background. A voice comes onto the microphone like a demonic preacher and begins to spew sermon. Staring at the album's cover and listening to the prophetic banter, suddenly things start to come together. The grounds will crack, the dead shall raise [...]
We also asked our photographer Jeffrey Chan to submit his favorite photographs of the year. Here is his list… Throughout 2012, I was able to photograph a good number of metal shows that came through Toronto. It is always good to know that bands from around the world have not forgotten their friends up in [...]
Before you read the recap, browse the massive photo gallery from Bloodstock This being my third Bloodstock in a row, it felt much more like a yearly traditional visit with an old friend than it did “work”. Boasting what was described by many as being their “best line-up yet” and also the best weather I’d [...]
It is very likely that you have seen Sharon Ehman on the internet already, her clothes and her style have caused quite a stir in the world of metal recently. She creates her own clothing line, known as Toxic Vision So far this completely self taught designer has clothed Iced Earth, Dimmu Borgir and Morbid [...]
In the searing heat of English summer approximately 15,000 people flooded a tiny patch of field to wreak chaos, drink too much beer and be part of the UK’s biggest independent music festival. The usual mix of mankini wearing drunkards, corpse painted serious people and average joe metal fans partied from Thursday to Sunday in [...]
Last week, we published Aline's awesome tour diary from going on the road with the Decibel Magazine tour. Today, we publish nearly 500 photos she captured while on the road with Behemoth, Watain, The Devil's Blood and In Solitude. It was a killer tour and here are her killer snaps.
My sincerest apologies for this long overdue labor of love. My insatiable thirst for metal got the better of me this past spring and summer, and I admittedly took on far too much work than any one sane person ought to. Luckily, nobody has ever accused me of being sane…hence the backlogs and delays. The [...]
I was a bit overwhelmed by the staggering amount of big releases out this week; but it's true, the metal gods are just, and where there was a void of empty space last week there must now be a huge slab of metallic mayhem. I've pushed my review quota up from five to nine in [...]
Are we slowly becoming a blog about metal cakes? We've posted about not just one, but two different Immortal cakes, a Slayer cake, a Death cake, Watain cupcakes and even a Metal Injection cake. Today we bring you a pretty sweet looking Bolt Thrower cake, via the fine folks at MetalSucks. Some dude named Mike is mighty [...]
The Decibel Magazine Tour, featuring Behemoth, Watain, The Devil's Blood, and In Solitude, has been a lot of drama. First, the guy who owns the Alrosa Villa, in Columbus, Ohio, banned the bands from playing his venue due to religious conflicts. Then, Watain can't get even get their visas secured, so they were forced to [...]
Some people apparently just can't deal with Satan, as the owners of The Brewmaster's Gate in Columbus, Ohio banned Behemoth, Watain, The Devil's Blood, and In Solitude from performing April 11th due to religious conflicts. The show has been moved to Alrosa Villa (if that name sounds familiar, it just happens to be the venue [...]
It didn't take long for Inquisition's last effort, 2011's Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm, to jump into heavy rotation around my house once my friend recommended the record during a kvlt black metal jam session. The band has now signed Season of Mist, the same awesome label that rosters Watain, Saint Vitus, Kylesa, and [...]
As some of us intelligent people might know, there have got to be a few reasons why black metal weapons look so primitive and are being used as part of many a band's fashionable poses in black metal photo shoots. To cut a long and analytical lecture short, these reasons can be basically broken down [...]
This Spring just got a whole lot heavier. Before Cannibal Corpse gears up for the Summer Slaughter tour, they'll be heading out this spring on the U.S. Torture tour, in support of their forthcoming new album, Torture. The band will be taking Exhumed, Abysmal Dawn and Arkiak on the road with them. This seems to [...]
