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.

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.
