ALBUM REVIEW: Geezer Butler – Manipulations Of The Mind Box Set/The Very Best Of Geezer Butler – BMG


Having stayed with Black Sabbath until 1983’s unfairly criticised Born Again (Vertigo) album, founding member Geezer Butler returned to the band in the early nineties but with a growing desire to prove himself as a solo artist. After leaving again in ’94, the iconic bass player and moustache enthusiast teamed up with former frontman Ozzy Osbourne for a while before eventually going it alone to form G/Z/R.

ALBUM REVIEW: Iceburn – Asclepius


Well, that was quite the trip, but in like, a good way. There wasn’t some breakthrough moment of introspective self-discovery or anything of the sort for me but making it through Asclepius (Southern Lord) does feel nice. Where these songs written well ahead of time or were they discovered and jammed out through the recording process? Don’t know and don’t quite care. Iceburn somehow made it work and sound natural.

ALBUM REVIEW: God’s Hate – God’s Hate


Well, God’s Hate has gone out of their way to make sure you don’t confuse their sophomore LP with anything else on the rack. You know the one, God’s Hate (Closed Casket Activities) featuring the track ‘God’s Hate.’ And yes, that was a record store joke. If you don’t know what that means, ask your parents. It’s fitting too considering that the stuff on God’s Hate recalls an era before streaming or even iPods and Zunes (okay, really ask your parents).

Rex Brown Dismisses Idea that Zakk Wylde Would Ever Take Part in a Pantera Reunion


In a report by Metal Sucks, Rex Brown has given a new interview to eonmusic in which he was asked about the possibility of a Pantera reunion without Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul, if it was possible, and whether the constant calls from fans to have Zakk Wyle take Dimebag’s place. Rex says that any Pantera project could only be a tribute and not an official reunion without the brothers. He commented that the band would be enormous if the brothers had lived and that he and Philip Anselmo receive offers for arena shows. And finally, he remarked that Zakk would not be in consideration for even a tribute tour, and that is his definitive answer on that.

LIVESTREAM REVIEW: Scour – Shock Narcotic


Last Friday (1/29/21) I got to check out the live stream from Housecore bands Scour and Shock Narcotic. Both of these groups are “supergroups” but I’m not going to get into that right now. I will say though that the list of bands that make up the background for each band are some of my favorites so I was kinda excited for this show.
