Another year in metal has come and gone, and as Krampus clunks from rooftop to rooftop, it’s time once more to look back on the good, bad, and truly, utterly ridiculous from music’s most truly, utterly ridiculous sub-culture. So saddle up and join us for This One Goes to Eleven’s second-annual metal Dundies, a network […]
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 […]
Halloween is dead and gone and we’re steaming for the home stretch now. But before we get to lisztomania, there’s still plenty of new records from incredible bands on the way, so whatever you do, don’t turn that calendar just yet. WHAT TO HEAR: So I’m gonna level with all of you: I’ve never really […]
Another week, another bonkers roster of metal releases. It’s a good problem to have, but I’m not even caught up with August yet. Oh well, onward into the void. WHAT TO HEAR: First up this week is one that I and more than a few other heavy metal degenerates have been waiting breathlessly for since […]
It’s officially September and you know what that means people: FALL RELEASE SEASON TIME WOOP WOOP [airhorn, airhorn, airhorn]. So take to the battlements and brace yourself, because if today is just the beginning, I’m legit scared about what’s to come.
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. But a long time (and a lot of miles) have passed since the […]
A big week for big sounds and bigger narratives. Let’s fire up the feels machine and get to it. WHAT TO HEAR: Leading us off this week is the first new music from Boston post-sludge legends Cave In, Final Transmission (Hyrdra Head), in over eight years. While cause for celebration, the circumstances surrounding the release […]
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.
