While perhaps reading like summer apathy, it’s in exactly the opposite spirit (read: too much to fucking cover) that we launch headlong into this thing this week. Good night and good luck.
I want to start this week by saing thanks to everyone—especially Slaves BC, Blackest, Thera Roya, and Pants Exploder—who came out to This One Goes To Eleven’s showcase at The Acheron on Friday night. Hopefully I’ll doing more of that moving forward, so stay tuned and remember to support your local bands. Now, on to […]
Apologies for the feature-related interruptions of this section of late, but time and words—as I’ve learned the hard way—are definitely finite resources. Moving forward you can expect about the same deviation as you’ve been getting, but rest assured, when I don’t have something more substantial already cooking, I will be here, churning these things out […]
Since we were tackling other topics last week, I’d like to take this moment to wish Saint Vitus a belated, but very happy, 5th birthday. I was up there on Friday and to hear Pallbearer—a band born and bred a thousand miles away, both geographically and culturally—talk about Vitus as a sort of adopted home, […]
After a Maiden-mandated detour last week, we are back to regularly programming, and just in time too, with one of the biggest and best release slates of the year suddenly upon us like a Half-Life head crab. Join me, if you dare.
This is metal. March always comes in like lion. Check out all the requisite insanity below and make sure to stay tuned for a rad TOGTE announcement in the coming days.
Between 30 inches of snow and the pitiless winter illness that blew in on it, I’m running on veritable empty this week, so please forgive me if we just skip the usual pleasantries and get at it. The completion of this damn thing may well depend on it.
I’m gonna level with you guys: It’s been a shitty couple of weeks in the music world. I don’t know about you, but I really don’t want to live in a world without Lemmy, without Bowie, without rockstars—a world where the arbiters of “cool” are PR-approved cardboard cutouts and the escapes on offer to high […]
Welcome to 2016, everyone. It’s a new year full of the same despair, depression, and destruction, and I’m thrilled, once again, to share it with all of you. If you’re just joining us, this is a column about metal and I am your host. If you’ve been here before, proceed to the play buttons. In […]
If you’re part of the bloodthirsty horde here for “The List”, take another lap around the block. It’s coming, but not until next week. Otherwise, kick off your shoes join us for yet another week of new metal and the live pilgrimages with which we are forever bound.
