This Just In: The Chariot RULE Live

Holy shit man, I honestly thought I’d seen it all.  I’ve been to quite a few shows in my day, and while I still really enjoy seeing bands live, these days I find myself feeling more and more like a  jaded old metal guy. This is pretty sad since I’m only…

Suddenly, New Vildhjarta!

Its been a long time since we’ve heard from Sweden’s djenty metal outfit Vildhjarta. We’ve been waiting for their album for so long that I honestly stopped caring about it… until now! From the silent abyss, here is an unreleased track titled “Eternal Golden Monk” that will be sure to…

Hey! Listen To Ready, Set, Fall!

Sometimes I’m not in the mood for technical metal and I just want something with a catchy chorus. Enter Ready, Set, Fall! Straight out of Italy, Ready, Set, Fall! (yes, exclamation point) bring a nice blend of metal and melody to a very dead genre. They are getting a pretty nice following behind…

This Week In Heavy [Week of March 1st]

Our highlight on progressive metal begins tomorrow, where we post our favorite prog songs every weekday morning (a la The Number Of The Blog’s Morning Wood posts). Keep an eye out for a couple of interviews and contests we have brewing this month; hopefully you dig it! Anyway, here’s what…
