Editors’ Picks – June 2020

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought of closing down the blog. It’s kind of a secret but not really; I’ve spoken about it in Facebook groups before but I don’t think I’ve ever written about it on the blog itself. The reasons are many: listening to so…

Death’s Door – June 2020

Welcome once more to Death’s Door, Hellions. Wipe your feet on the mat and pull up a bone throne. Death metal had one doozy of a month in June. Every time I write one of these my initial thought is to comment on how this month has surpassed each subsequent…

Kvlt Kolvmn – May 2020

Welcome to a particularly enraged edition of Kvlt Kolvmn.  We write a lot about combatting repulsive views on race in particular in black metal in this column, and once again we’re confronted with the ugliest, bleakest truths of our culture’s continued struggle to champion equity, safety, and justice for black…

Post Rock Post // April 2020

Yeah, so this is still happening, huh? This past month was the time where I moved on from just having the reality of the pandemic sink in to fully accepting that this is going to continue to be our reality for many months, if not years, to come. And…it’s not…

Editors’ Picks – April 2020

On the last episode of our podcast, Noyan challenged me with a question: is “The Golden Age of Metal” over? I had made the point that we’re living in the Golden Age of Metal back in 2016, although the idea was boiling around in Heavy Blog circles since at least…
