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…

Editors’ Picks – August 2019

It’s been one year since we first had the idea to invite a staff member to participate in this column. On this occasion (which, of course, doesn’t actually mean anything beyond my brain’s love for round numbers) I’d like to take a brief look with you behind the scenes and…

Editors’ Picks – July 2019

July! What a terrible, awful month it is for anyone who suffers from the heat like I do. Actually, I’ve looked back on my previous two Editors’ Picks from July and I complained about the heat and the summer there as well, so perhaps I’ll refrain from doing that again,…

Editors’ Picks – June 2019

Editors’ Picks – May 2019

Editors’ Picks – April 2019

For this month’s introduction to this, our Editors’ Picks, I decided to run a little experiment by going back to the last three years of April installments and see what’s what. I had a suspicion that proved to be correct: April is usually a goddamn amazing month. Whether it’s because…

Editors’ Picks – March 2019

Hey, did you notice that music is an incredible thing? I know it must sound trivial but give the idea a second to permeate through you. Music is one of those things we grow up with; it’s all around us. Our parents, from a young age, either play us music…

Editors’ Picks – February 2019

February; or, as I like to call it (I literally just invented this), “The Bastard Month.” It’s not just the weird length which makes this month hard to pin down; it’s no longer “The First Month of the Year,” but nor is it close to its half. It’s not Midwinter…

Editors’ Picks – January 2019

January is like a box of chocolates; you never know exactly what you’re going to get. That’s how the famous saying goes, right? In any case, the start of the year does tend to be an unexpected affair. December sees many of us going into relative hibernation, as PR and…
