Old school metal lovers gathered on the west side of Detroit last Saturday to witness the acclaimed and beloved band, Accept. Nestled on the borders of two of the city’s burbs, The Token Lounge is a cozy-sized venue that has been serving Livonia, Westland, and beyond for over fifty years. Known for welcoming everyone from world famous bands to local artists down the street, this hallowed hall was a special spot to host the legendary German/American act. Touring for the first time in a while, Accept have been excited to promote their sixteenth full-length, Too Mean to Die (Nuclear Blast Records) that came out in 2021. Read our review here! Their show last weekend hit town near the end of their month-long North American run, and we Michiganders were happy to have them.

ALBUM REVIEW: Nightwish – Human. :||: Nature.
With gaps of up to five years between studio albums, it takes some serious dedication to be a Nightwish fan these days. Since 2007, the band has only released four albums, but in that time, their fanbase has grown so large that the symphonic Finns (well, mostly Finnish) have been able to make that often treacherous leap from mid-sized venues to selling out full arenas.Continue reading

Gloryhammer – Legends From Beyond The Galactic Terrorvortex
Listening to a Gloryhammer album is like watching one of those cheesy but brilliant straight to video sci-fi movie trailers from the 1980s. You know, the ones which always seemed to begin with the same overly dramatic, gravel-throated narrator proclaiming, “it was a time of heroes”, or “it was a time of war”. Well, whereas those movies generally struggled to do justice to their wildly optimistic advertising campaigns, Gloryhammer pretty much guarantees maximum enjoyment every time.Continue reading

Watch Game Of Thrones Attack On Kings Landing Scene Set To Metallica’s “For Whom The Bell Tolls”
SPOILER ALERT! Don’t read this if you care about HBO’s Game of Thrones and haven’t seen Season 8 episode 5. Now, someone cool took the footage of the Battle of Kings Landing, swords and spears, blood and guts, and genocide via Dragon’s fire set to Metallica’s classic anti-war song ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’ from 1984s Ride The Lightning (Blackened Records). It is literally the bloodiest and possibly most horrible scene in the entire series. We already wrote previously about how Thrones is the most metal show of all time!
