We’re now two months into 2018, and, from a metal perspective at least, it’s been a good one, with almost as many records in the past eight weeks connecting with me as there did all of last year. Thankfully that theme continues today, thanks in large part to…
If you can remember way back to December of 2016 — God, how time crawls during the Trump era of horrors — Roberta’s began receiving death threats related to Pizzagate. Of course it was all utter nonsense created by a bunch of dim-witted, right-wing trolls. But to commemorate the insanity, they’ve teamed up with LIC Beer […]
Woohoo! It’s a short work week! I was really scratching my head on Monday as to why we’re still celebrating President’s Day. After all, the one we have in office now is a total ass clown and the ones who founded the country thought it was cool to own people. It might be time to […]
TRENDING hardcore, CRAZY shows, and…figure skating? Yep, it’s another weird week here in Brooklyn Metaland. Let’s get to it.
Nothing pithy or illuminating to say this week, just more metal. Not that anyone’s complaining… WHAT TO HEAR: At the vanguard of this week’s releases are Harakiri For The Sky and their sweeping fourth full-length, Arson (Art of Propaganda).

It’s the dead fucking smackdab center cut of winter and we’re all hurting a bit on the inside (and probably outside too). But don’t worry, it’s a new week with new metal and This One Goes to Eleven is packing a few blunt implements to help knock the frost off. Let’s go.

Your tour guide is Allison Huntington Chase who guides passengers through “tales of alien abductions on the Brooklyn Bridge, the secret location used by Murder […]
Grab your sash and tie up your roller skates, because our new favorite festival returns to Lakewood, PA over Memorial Day Weekend! Earlier today, the adult summer camp-themed music festival known as Elements Musical & Arts Festival Lakewood dropped an impressive electronic lineup including house, bass and techno’s biggest names. The lovable Brooklyn-based party makers […]
It’s the first big metal of the week of, with the return of a couple of heavy hitters and a crushing show slate leading the way, torches aloft. Grab that battle vest and join us or be trampled underfoot. Your call, folks. WHAT TO HEAR: Tribulation is back, storming to the top of the metal […]
New week, more metal, short intro. Let’s get to it. WHAT TO HEAR: Getting us underway this week is an early AOTY contender from the heart of the bleak, god-forsaken heart of the Midwest: Locktender’s Friedrich (Moment of Collapse). Built from the ashes of Men As Trees, Locktender’s focus is a narrow but engrossing one, with […]
