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 […]
Another week of winter is in the books and with it, plenty of metal—both live and otherwise—to keep you warm. Huddle up and thaw those hands beside the hellfire.
Welcome to a new year of This One Goes to Eleven, everyone. It’s business as usual, only with the prospect of instantaneous human incineration tossing some much-needed excitement into the mix. So with that mind, let’s get 2018 started before it suddenly ends.
Holy shit, we made it! I honestly didn’t think we’d survive 2017, but love has prevailed.

Your Thanksgiving travel playlist—presumably enough to get you to familial hell and back—starts here. Dig in, huddled metal masses.
In 2017 Japan was named #2 in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel. This means there is no better time to visit Japan than right now.
I’ve got to be real with you guys. After all that big talk about braving the cold, I let Friday’s windy shit storm get the best of me. Instead of scouting dope shows, I stayed in, watched Wonder Woman (not that good) and allowed my 33-year-old boyfriend teach me how to play “Magic the Gathering” […]
