Into the Pit – Best of Q2

Good day to you all, fellow thrashers! Have you missed me? I’ve certainly missed all of you. However, there are only so many topics to discuss with thrash metal these days still. That being said, we are getting a lot of what I would call solid gold releases. This quarter…

Body Count – Bloodlust

First of all, let’s be real. It’s difficult being black in America (and everywhere else in the world but especially so in the US). Being black in metal and being widely accepted by that audience is even more difficult. That said, for 25 years now Body Count have largely done…

Opeth: Not the First Musical Act to Piss Off Their Fans

The wait is over. The release date for Opeth’s latest, Sorceress, is almost upon us; and with it, the latest round in the controversy that has dogged them for three albums now. “What happened to the death growls?” “Why aren’t these guys heavy anymore?” “Opeth sucks now.” These are not opinions that I personally share, as I’m huge fan of Pale Communion. That said, Heritage is certainly not their best record, or even one of their top 5. In fact, it may even be their weakest. No shame there, given the ridiculous quality of their complete discography. Time will tell how successful and well-regarded Sorceress is, though early indications are that your opinion on Sorceress will likely mirror your opinion on Pale Communion. The two tracks released in advance, the title track and “Will O’ The Wisp” certainly strongly suggest this.

But they aren’t the first band to release a record that has the fans howling with rage.

ECDEU’s Murmurs: Bromances

This is my new series of posts as of now as seeing that I wanted a new post. The last series was very random with posting and so this one will hopefully be weekly and consistent. Also, this one has less to do with anything but metal, but will actually…
