Black Sabbath, Slipknot, Metallica, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Dio, Ozzy, Judas Priest, Tool, and More Named to The 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Songs of All Time by Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone has announced its list of The 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Songs of All Time, and this list….a curious one. Selected by the staff of RS, formerly the world’s most important music magazine, in the 1960s and 70s, has a good list, no doubt. Only a few bands from this list made this century, and weirder still, a good portion of the list is really hard rock and not remotely metal. All the usual suspects Black Sabbath, Slipknot, Metallica, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Dio, Ozzy, Judas Priest, Danzig, Megadeth, that you would have expected are here. Many of your faves are not represented. There are at least a few Death Metal and Black Metal bands. Cool. Lamb of God, is not. Still, people love lists so get ready to be big-time mad!

ALBUM REVIEWS: Black Sabbath Reissues – Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules
When Ronnie James Dio joined metal legends Black Sabbath in 1980 the former Rainbow frontman’s appointment couldn’t have come at a better time. Sabbath were a sinking ship.

EP REVIEWS ROUND-UP: Mortuary Drape, Greyhawk, and Solicitor
Mortuary Drape – Wisdom – Vibration – Repent (Peaceville)
When looking at Mortuary Drape’s latest EP, the thing that immediately draws one’s attention is the cover of Mercyful Fate’s ‘Nightmare Be Thy Name.’ In addition to being the only cover to show up on one of Drape’s proper studio releases, it’s a deep cut from one of Fate’s more overlooked efforts. Thankfully it’s ultimately a solid rendition; the obligatory King Diamond falsetto emulations make it an inherent outlier, but the added grit and ominous guitar acrobatics ensure it isn’t out of step with the EP’s original tracks.
