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.
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.

And although our news channels are running […]
Hello and welcome to This One Goes To Eleven loyal pawns, hooded torch-bearers, fallen apostles, and mildly curious passerby. It needn’t take a hot-air balloon diatribe on the recent explosion of extreme music into the indie-verse for you to quickly glean why we are here. The reason is simple and the purpose is clear: We […]
Unless you’re one of the several thousand volts currently coursing into the skull of Brooklyn’s heavy metal Frankenculture at the moment, then there’s a very real chance that, even in its third year, you might not know much about Martyrdoom.
