Welcome to October, folks. This is a 21+ maturity show, so if you call it spooky szn, please see yourself out. WHAT TO HEAR: This week is owned by Arizona death metal unit Gatecreeper, who return after a three-year vision quest with their sophomore full length (and long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s Sonoran Deprivation), Deserted (Relapse). […]
It’s hard to believe, but the last release week of September is already upon us. Next week is October and the week after that, 2050. But thankfully there’s plenty of new noise to help drown out the sound of your life rapidly evaporating around you. WHAT TO HEAR: First up this week is Creeping Death’s […]
Another week, another bonkers roster of metal releases. It’s a good problem to have, but I’m not even caught up with August yet. Oh well, onward into the void. WHAT TO HEAR: First up this week is one that I and more than a few other heavy metal degenerates have been waiting breathlessly for since […]
It’s officially September and you know what that means people: FALL RELEASE SEASON TIME WOOP WOOP [airhorn, airhorn, airhorn]. So take to the battlements and brace yourself, because if today is just the beginning, I’m legit scared about what’s to come.
It’s one of the biggest release weeks of the year, so strap in and buckle up. Do whatever you have to do, because this is about to get hectic. WHAT TO HEAR: OK, so first up this week is Fear Inoculum (RCA), the first new music from Tool in 13 years. 19/16 time signature enthusiasts […]
If you want br00tal, you got it, starting with…
OK, so a bit of a weird week overall, but don’t blame the messenger. I just write about this shit. WHAT TO HEAR: Kicking things off in fittingly caustic fashion is Generation Coward (Willowtip Records), the latest batch of ruthless political grind from Orange County legends Phobia. A direct response to the horror of being […]
It’s August and the dog days are officially upon us, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of heavy to sink your thirsty little fangs into. So gear up and join me on a weekly descent into the weird, wild world of metal. WHAT TO HEAR: Leading the way this week isn’t your usual brand […]
Off the next two weeks to track vox for something new (metal!) and wedding duty (not metal!), so sip this one slow. WHAT TO HEAR: Leading the way this week is Portent (Gilead Media), the cauterizing new full-length from middle west black metal collective False. Comprised of four hypercoaster epics, Portent is Six Flags for […]
Summer is here and the rot has officially set in. So what better way to kick back and relax than with a blast hot, stale crypt air to the face. Ahh, what a beautiful world we live in.
