Alright, I'm going to level with you here. This box set contains the only four Rob Zombie albums that matter, and he nows damn well that's the case.
There are thousands upon thousands of forgotten bands buried and rotting in the coffin of time. And while the heap is often justifiable hill of similarly marked graves that did nothing but play idol worship [insert any Hatebreed rip-off band here], some are truly remarkable units that just didn't get the respect they deserved. If [...]
As part of Black Metal History Month, we will be spotlighting classic albums that we feel are essential for any fan of black metal. This album is a part of that series. Make sure to pick up our limited edition Black Metal History Month t-shirt. Most "who was first?" arguments centering around black metal tend to focus [...]
Grind has been making a comeback lately – its decline in both popularity and availability roughly traceable to Nasum's 2005 break up – and you'd expect Relapse to be leading such a resurgence. True to form, the label has recently put out genre defining efforts by the likes of Pig Destroyer and Rotten Sound, and now they bring [...]
Megadeth have a pretty active eBay store where they sell all sorts of one-of-a-kind Mega-memorabilia like a pair of shoes Dave Mustaine wore one time and some $80 wristbands featuring Dave Mustaine's actual sweat.. But in all seriousness, there are some really cool things up for auction, like the just recently auctioned Jackson Y2KV 1st [...]
I am really pumped for this new Suffocation album, Pinnacle Of Bedlam, set to be released on February 15, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records. The band just released the first single off the album, and no surprise, it's a total crusher. Take a listen:
Suffocation are gearing up to release their new album, Pinnacle of Bedlam on February 15th via Nuclear Blast Records and today they released some killer artwork for the new full length. The artwork was created by Raymond Swanland. This will be the first album that drummer Mike Smith hasn't played on since 1998's Despise the [...]
In 1998, a little record entitled When Forever Comes Crashing shook the music world by fusing the atonal, offbeat time signatures of post-hardcore (particularly the instrumentally complex variety that had come to be dubbed "mathcore") with the sheet metal ferocity of noise rock in a seamless manner that hadn't been accomplished before. Three years later, Jane Doe cemented Convege's [...]
Gorgoroth is a black metal band that his been around for twenty years, and it shows as each individual's names sound like they were created by a teenager. Founding guitarist Infernus has booted singer Pest for not prioritizing the band's upcoming Latin American tour. This is the second time Pest has exited the band. Learn the [...]
Mikael Åkerfeldt is basically done screaming now, whether he wants to admit that or not. He announced yesterday that he was leaving Bloodbath, the supergroup he fronted with Opeth and Katatonia members since 1998. Åkerfeldt told Loudwire that the recent Bloodbath shows had been fun, but he really didn't feel the need to participate in the project any longer:
Last week, we were floored by the announcement that former members of Death will be getting together to play classic tunes in honor of Chuck Shuldiner, with proceeds going to charity. Guitarists, bassists and drummers were announced, but no vocalists were mentioned, until now!
Legendary British heavy metallers Angel Witch have risen from the grave (once again) with their first studio album since 1998’s Resurrection. This new album, entitled As Above, So Below, is undeniable proof that a classic NWOBHM sound can survive and even thrive in today’s metal environment. The eight-song ass-kicker contains four previously unreleased Angel Witch [...]
Relapse has been doing a pretty amazing job with all these Death reissues lately, and the fun isn't stopping. They have just announced a deluxe two-CD collection of live tracks called Vivus due out February 28th. The album will feature two live shows from the height of Death's reign in 1988 at the Whisky A [...]
Well, here is the big 11/11/11 announcement, announced at 11:11am pacific time: the original Black Sabbath is back! The band announced (via the above video teaser) that they are recording a new album to be released next year, produced by Rick Rubin (I am not even going to bother listing his credits, you know who [...]
