The Rave/Eagles Club is an acclaimed live entertainment complex located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and is a one-of-a-kind spot to catch a heavy metal show. The multi-stage and multi-floor building has a fascinating history and many music groups consider playing there a “rite of passage” as performers. The Milwaukee Metal Fest was launched in 1987 by music enthusiast and promoter Jack Koshick, which became one of the most renowned festivals for the heavy genres in the 1990s and early 2000s. All the greats from Slayer to Meshuggah to the Misfits were all part of the impressive lineups throughout the years until it shut down in 2004. After being absent for nearly twenty years, the fest has been brought back to life by Hatebreed‘s Jamey Jasta. He bought the rights in 2022 and put together a fest to take place on Memorial Day weekend at The Rave with some of the scene’s biggest bands. Continue reading

CONCERT REVIEW: The Black Dahlia Murder – Phobophilic – Fuming Mouth – Frozen Soul – Terror, Live at Irving Plaza
The night of April 16h, 2023, was a momentous occasion for music fans as Phobophilic, Fuming Mouth, Frozen Soul, Terror, and the New York return of The Black Dahlia Murder, shook the walls of Irving Plaza. With a revamped lineup for TBDM since the tragic passing of vocalist Trevor Strnad, I like a lot of people were curious to hear this new version. Guitarist Brian Eschbach took over vocals and replacing him is former guitarist, Ryan Knight, keeping it in the family. It was emotional, to say the least.
ALBUM REVIEW: FesterDecay – Reality Rotten to the Core
Look, this is a genuine effort to fend off waves of tweets and horseshit comments like “well, everybody in metal borrows from somebody” or “not everybody is reinventing the wheel.” As someone who’s only been listening to extreme music for the last twenty-five years, I think I get it. Metallica? More like we love Diamond Head. Slayer? Oh, you mean Venom if they actually knew how to play their instruments? Sepultura? Slayer if they were even better at their craft?
