“Should we hit the bong… Before we begin?”

You need to be able to laugh at yourself if you are an aficionado of death metal. If one can take a step back and find the humor in their circumstances then their overall appreciation of the genre will be increased tenfold. The posturing and machismo that plagues metal in general is laughable, with bands penning songs about demons, possession, graphic violence and death –  who can really take of all of this stuff seriously? Thankfully there are many out there who are aware of the comical nature of being a death metal musician and The Black Dahlia Murder are maybe the finest example of this. Their new DVD, Fool ‘Em All, picks up exactly where Majesty left off in terms of the bands sense of humor and the unceasing professionalism that propels them forward. View Full Article »


Rivers Of Nihil have taken the metal world by storm with their debut full-length The Conscious Seed Of Light, which came out last year. They have ascended the ranks, going from a relatively underground band to being known as the next great thing in death metal music. I caught up with Brody Uttley at their Fort Lauderdale stop on their tour with Whitechapel, Devildriver, Carnifex, Revocation, and Fit For An Autopsy, to chat about getting naked, the new album, and why St. Louis is horrible for touring bands.

Whitechapel Devildriver 2014

Devildriver and Whitechapel have announced a co-headlining trek for May and July featuring some of the coolest upcoming acts in metal. Carnifex, Revocation, Rivers of Nihil, and Fit For An Autopsy are tapped as support, making this package tour a must-see this summer, likely a worthy competitor for Summer Slaughter. I’m not too keen on Devildriver or Carnifex, but the rest of the tour is right up our alley. Get the full run of dates below.

bloodshot dawn album 2 update

Bloodshot Dawn — you might be forgiven for not knowing them based on the fact that they’re completely unsigned, but then you be missing out on one of the best bands the metal underground has to offer these days. They combine the effortless meandering of Revocation with the technically adept flourishes of Arsis to create some mutant strain of death metal inspired thrash (or thrash metal inspired death) that is genuinely face-melting. So, what better time to jump on board the hype train, than the build up to their second album?

[Relapse Records]

When the announcement came that Relapse Records had signed a shoegaze band, head-scratching ensued. The same label that boasts the likes of Pig Destroyer, Revocation, and Indian, had signed Philadelphia-based act Nothing— a band that had been likened to My Bloody Valentine and Smashing Pumpkins. Shortly after the announcement of their signing, they band dropped the single ‘Dig,’ and at that point, all doubts were dispelled. This was going to be a record that warranted at least a thorough listen. Turns out, it’s worth more than quite a few.

exmortus - slave to the sword

There’s just something instantly satisfying about a great thrash band. Maybe it’s because a lot of us cut our teeth on the genre in the form of the ‘Big 4′ who are pretty much the gateway bands to nearly all forms of underground metal, but when you find a band that can churn out those machine-gun riffs and double pedal to make you feel the same way you did the first time you heard ‘War Ensemble’, then… You know, you know, you can deal. You know that you’re thinking, you know.

Artifical Brain - Worm harvester

Artificial Brain are an old school death metal band featuring  Dan Gargiulo of Revocation on guitars. Their brand of metal is pretty far away from Revocation though; they embrace a grimy, ugly sound akin to the legendary Demilich. Excited yet? Well they have two tracks available for you to feast your ears with.
