Death’s Door – October 2019

Greetings, hellions! I’m occupying the throne in Jonathan’s stead this month, so gather ’round, grab a chalice, and let’s chat. There’s plenty to cover. We have a few months left this year to consume as much death metal as possible, and our dark overlords down below have yet to turn…

Kvlt Kolvmn – October 2019

There’s a three-inch deep pile of snow in my front yard. A blizzard before Halloween. The earth is ready for the ascension of winter’s theme music, covering all in a sea of white, dark, and cold. A perfect atmosphere for our latest installment of Kvlt Kolvmn, which features some of…

Kvlt Kolvmn – September 2019

Welcome, yon Hellions, to Kvlt Kolvmn. The time is upon us. The temperature is dropping. Darkness steels across the land at an increasingly rapid rate. Snow falls in the far northern reaches of the globe. The reek of pumpkin spice flares our nostrils into positions of abject disdain (or joy,…

Editors’ Picks – September 2019

September ends and with it, Summer fully dies. Especially where I’m presently at, the East Coast of the United States, the first brushes of Autumn are being felt. To be honest, there’s no better time of the year for metal; sure, Winter is black metal’s eternal domain but Autumn lends…
