The end of the year is nigh, but two of the biggest AOTY contender are just rolling in. So hold onto your butts (and lists), folks—we are just getting started. WHAT TO HEAR: I don’t think there’s been a more anticipated, hyped, or meme’d metal record this year than Blood Incantation’s Hidden History of the […]
It’s already been a good week with shows by Tool and Mikal Cronin in the bag, so let’s pull things kicking and screaming into the weekend.
Down to the final mixes on a personal project this week, so for the sake of my sanity, let’s keep this short and sweet. WHAT TO HEAR: Well folks, black metal Liturgy is officially back with a surprise (surprisingly good) new LP this week, H.A.Q.Q. (YLYLCYN). Although billed as a musical detour before Hunter Hunt-Hendrix’s […]
Halloween is dead and gone and we’re steaming for the home stretch now.

Looks like we’re in for a mostly pleasant weekend weather-wise, and there might not be too many of those left for the next few months, so make the most of it. This week it’s all about tried-and-tested excellent acts.
This is not a huge surprise, given their troubled history with their landlord, but this really sucks. Brooklyn Bazaar has a handful of shows and events slotted before they shutdown on November 30, so be sure to swing by and give them some love. WE’RE OUT (AGAIN) After 3 years and thousands of shows, events, […]
Philly quartet Sheer Mag put out their excellent new album, A Distant Call in August and those with a hankering for Thin Lizzy-esque rock should listen to it at your nearest convenience (or inconvenience, even).
