Greetings once again all you metal nerds. This was a rough week. Rough in a sense that there was almost too much good stuff to talk about from so many genres, subgenres, subsubgenres, etc. I could have gone on and on with this week's WEEKLY INJECTION, but alas, the fancy beer I can't pronounce is [...]
Everyone has that band that got them into music, or into a genre. And no matter how mediocre or revolutionary that band is, you'll always hold them as one of the greatest things ever recorded. Personally speaking, my first real dose of underground hardcore, thrash, crust, and pure wreckage is also a completely unsung band [...]
The metal world was shocked when Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi announced he had lymphoma. A year and a half later, Iommi is cancer free, but not without a price. He has to regularly go in for check-ups and blood transfusions. Iommi described the arduous process he goes through to the Birmingham Mail. Here are highlights:
It's always exciting when a band who you've most likely never heard of starts acting really entitled. Such is the case with Atilla. The Atlanta deathcore band's frontman, Chris Fronzak, took to Twitter last night to boast about how great the new album is, and in the process came off like a total douche:
While this was a relatively slow news week, the big story was clearly Black Sabbath revealing their new album artwork and a snippet of new music. We got a bunch of great viral videos and some new photo posts including Lars being too cozy with his Metallica bandmates and rock stars without teeth! Here are [...]
My favorite current meme is Actresses With No Teeth, but why do celebrities have to have all the fun? I decided to delve into Photoshop and predict what some of our favorite metal musicians would look like without teeth. If you've ever wondered what Ozzy Osbourne, Dave Mustaine, James Hetfield, Scott Ian, and more look [...]
The slow tempo of a bass drum jolts on like a heartbeat through the speakers as the bass throbs and feedback wails. Wasting almost no time the droned, fuzzy guitars and throaty vocalist kick in. The tempo picks up slowly only to build more and more. Suddenly the song becomes a frenzy as the band [...]
Irish back metal band Altar of Plagues just premiered a new video via Pitchfork.com for a song off their forthcoming album Teethed Glory and Injury. The song is titled "God Alone" and was directed by Altar of Plagues frontman James Kelly and Patrick O'Mahony. There's not much to the video beyond black and white footage of people writhing around [...]
Each week on ‘Throwback Thursday’ we dust off a crucial but underrated album, without which heavy metal’s evolution would have turned out quite differently. This week’s chosen relic endured decades of neglect before reemerging as one of the most vital documents of heavy metal’s first global assault: Sir Lord Baltimore’s combustible Kingdom Come.
Last I looked the economy was still in the shitter, so the theme of this year's preface is doing SXSW on the (relative) cheap. The main misconception that I hear about SXSW – even among fellow Austinites – is that it costs a fortune to attend. Yes, it's true that if you plan on attending [...]
Providence riff lords Howl have just unveiled the new album artwork for their upcoming Bloodlines album that comes out April 30 in North America. The band recently wrapped up recording with Chris "Zuess" Harris at the infamous Planet Z Studios, which has produced some amazing records from Crowbar, Soulfly, and Municipal Waste, among a ton of [...]
