ALBUM REVIEW: Heaven Shall Burn – Of Truth and Sacrifice

It’s been four years since the German Extreme Metal act, Heaven Shall Burn, released their last album. After Wanderer (Century Media Records) came out, these hard-hitting fellas took a very justified break. Now with batteries recharged, they’re back with an adventurous new release. The band gifted us with the double album, Of Truth and Sacrifice (Century Media Records) earlier this month and it’s making quite the impression. Known for their aggressive sound and topical lyrics, this ninth full-length release is taking these extreme characteristics to a new level. The band has been around for nearly twenty-five years and they are still taking their massive sound to some exciting, uncharted territories. Continue reading

CONCERT REVIEW: Vader – Abysmal Dawn – Hideous Divinity – Vitriol: Live at The Warsaw

Love was not in the air on this Valentine’s Day. Nope. Instead, it was psychotic screams, blastbeats, shred guitar and a lot of headbanging, beer, and B.O. We assembled on a bitterly cold night in February to a fitting place. The Warsaw is the Home for Polish American’s in Brooklyn, set to welcome the 30-year and counting extreme metal legends, also from Poland, Vader. Vader is preparing a brand new album and recently released a new single, the brutal ‘Shock and Awe’ so lots of good fun was on tap. The Warsaw has actually become one of the better venues in Brooklyn with great beer, awesome bartenders, great event staff, Polish food (pierogies and more) and great sound and lights. We love coming here! The freezing cold night was no match for the sold-out show and a bunch of Brooklyn rowdy metal heshers and hesherettes. Continue reading

CONCERT REVIEW: Barishi – Ether Coven – WVRM: Live at Sanctuary

The Sanctuary is a true Heavy Metal haven. Huddled next to the city of Detroit, the scaled-down town of Hamtramck accommodates this music club that caters so well to loud music. It was a freezing Wednesday night when the Moody Metal monsters, Ether Coven came to the Ham town. Along with extreme acts, Barishi, and WVRM on the touring bill, that bitterly cold night was about to sizzle with savagery. Continue reading

ALBUM REVIEW: Uniform and The Body – Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back

US Sludge experimentalists The Body make such a habit of collaborative projects that one would think the duo aren’t overly happy in each other’s company. Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back (Sacred Bones Records) is the second such outing with US Industrial noiseniks Uniform and it contains every dystopian soundscape you’d expect. Continue reading

Listen To A New Song from Dragged Into Sunlight – “Terminal Aggressor II”

Enigmatic extreme metallers Dragged Into Sunlight have shared a new song, their first since 2015! ‘Terminal Aggressor II’ is streaming now via their Bandcamp page. Their original 2008 demo attainted respect at a level of folklore in the metal underground in the UK, and was dubbed Terminal Aggressor. The band has actually not released a full-length album since 2012’s incredible Widowmaker (Prosthetic Records), but the band has been teasing new music for 2020. They have a show booked for February at Patronet in Haarlem, Netherlands so hopefully, this is just the beginning of new activity for the usually secretive band. Continue reading
