The term Supergroup is often used to describe any band consisting of musicians from other acts and thus disappointing when it ends up lacking household names, or consisting of dream groupings who do not live up to the expectation their legacy suggests.
Fortunately, new entity Vltimas have offered a debut that smashes those notions.
Made up of former Mayhem man Blasphemer, Cryptopsy’s Flo Mounier and David Vincent (formerly of Morbid Angel), Vltimas is a solid who’s who of Extreme Metal royalty. Notably, this is Vincent’s first Metal outing since the polarising Illud Divinum Insanus (Season of Mist), thus potentially leaving him with a point to prove. Fortunately, it doesn’t take long for Something Wicked Marches In (Season of Mist) to ease any lingering doubts there. Continue reading

When frontman David Vincent returned to the Morbid Angel fold in 2004, there was much rejoicing. When the result of this reunion, the ill-fated Illud Divinium Insanus (Season of Mist) surfaced in 2011, there was considerably less rejoicing. All of a sudden, internet forums, and websites like Facebook and YouTube found themselves inundated with knee-jerk (over)reaction videos posted by inexplicably angry middle-aged men describing the new album as the worst thing since Hitler, cancer, or stepping on Lego.Continue reading
As the legendary voice of the genre defining extreme metal purveyors Morbid Angel, David Vincent‘s unapologetic rebel approach has been a force in the music world since the mid 1980’s. Inspired by his Hill Country surroundings and ‘Lone Star’ culture following his relocation to Austin, Texas in 2014, Vincent took a big step “out of the box” to a dirty, organic Texas Country Outlaw style reminiscent of the original country outlaw performers of the 1970’s. His Outlaw Country single, “Drinkin’ With The Devil”, made its debut at SXSW in March 2017 and released on limited- edition 7″ vinyl through Chicken Ranch Records. Today we are honored to premiere the long awaited video for this track. Continue reading
