Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone. Pour a Guinness, throw on some Primordial, and settle in with another edition of This One Goes To Eleven, now an official green-Exorcist-puke-free institution.
Perhaps it’s the fact I don’t want to write it, or maybe it’s because music this twisted can only really speak for itself, but when a release crop this good comes along, it’s always tempting to just say screw the intro, which is, of course, both its own form of intro and an invitation […]
Thanks to a nasty winter cold and an additional jubilee of weather-related psycho-emotional maladies, I’m feeling a little flat today. Apologies in advance for any perceived auto-piloting. New metal is always goatshead soup for the sold-soul, however, so let’s just get at it and see how this goes.
I want to begin this week by offering a titanic thank you to everyone who turned out to The Acheron on Saturday night for our latest rager featuring Horrendous, Artificial Brain, Throaat, and Kosmodemonic. That was one of raddest Brooklyn metal turnouts I’ve seen in quite some time and a perfect welcome party for the […]
For metal fans, today isn’t just grocery shopping on an empty stomach, it’s Ghandi walking into a goddamn Wegmans. After a couple of lean weeks, hell has officially risen on earth and, with it, a salivary gland-stimulating roster of new releases and wicked shows just begging to be devoured. So grab the cart and get […]
Happy belated MLK day, everyone. If you’re coming off a three-day weekend, welcome back to earth. If not, hopefully there’s something here to help. Before we begin, however, let’s just take a second to remember that metal, and it’s diverse, globe-spanning constituency—despite what a bigoted minority of artists and fans might spew—probably wouldn’t exist without […]
With a barrage of killer new releases, more Brent Hinds weirdness, and a huge show announcement from This One Goes To Eleven, this week is by far 2015’s biggest yet. So sit down, strap in, and get ready for some whiplash, it’s going to be a good one.
As we continue our collective slog through resolution season, This One Goes Eleven is proud to announce not only our first 2015 showcase but the perfect way to make good on that “more metal shows” pledge, bringing Horrendous, Aritificial Brain, Throaat, and Kosmodemonic to The Acheron for a face-meltathon of star-destroying proportions on Saturday, 1/31. […]
Welcome to a whole new year in metal everyone. Those of you who followed along with us in 2014 already know the plot—we meet here every Tuesday to talk new releases, awesome shows, and the craziest heavy headlines of the week. Those of you who didn’t, well, welcome to the circus. It’s a little too […]
With the capital-I Internet anointing 2013 “THE BEST METAL YEAR EVER!!” before it even ended, 2014 was a letdown by the time it began. Much hyped releases from the likes Agalloch, At the Gates, Mastodon, and Pallbearer couldn’t save it. The underground’s rescue missions returned with heads hung. Ludicrous precedent, and its attendant expectations, have […]
