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.
Lots of must-hears this week, so let’s get to the business of hearing them. Onward, downward, whatever. WHAT TO HEAR: Leading us off this week is Baroness, one of the few late-2000s sludge acts, along with Mastodon, still carrying the torch aloft.

WHAT TO HEAR: Leading us off this week is the first new music from Boston post-sludge legends Cave In, Final Transmission (Hyrdra Head), in over eight years. While cause for celebration, the circumstances surrounding the release […]
Again, apologies for the intermittent nature of this section for the next month or two. I’m here this week and so are a few new records, however, so let’s not waste any more time on pleasantries (or lack thereof.) WHAT TO HEAR: First up this week is Old Star (Peaceville Records), the new LP from […]
Apologies in advance for the impending sportiness of this section over the next few months. I have my 30th birthday, several weddings, a bunch of work stuff, and a cross-country studio trip for my band all on the ol’ Google calendar. But when I’m here, I’ll do my best to spit up one of these, […]
Across the world, people are worshipping a zombie prophet and mourning the ashes of humanity’s most famous cathedral. Needless to say, it’s been a pretty metal week in our neck of the multiverse, so stop by and check it out.
Damn, since when did April become October? We have a bonkers week in metal to get you, so grab your board and let’s hang ten.
It’s Friday, and by now I hope you know what that means: New metal and me pushing said metal on you like a mother with not enough left in the casserole dish to save. Eat up, children. You’re skin and bones.
