Wave // Breaker – Saint Pepsi

Remember this old chestnut? It’s been a couple years since we last ran a Wave // Breaker post, our avenue to cover synthwave and it’s related synth-based offshoots. With this being the case, you can safely assume that there’s an excellent album behind this overdue revival. I’ve followed Saint Pepsi…

Igorrr – Savage Sinusoid

Have you ever imagined what an asylum in Transylvania would sound like? Frankenstein’s monster flailing and frothing in rage, mummies and ghouls of all shapes and sizes writhing in demented ecstasy while Count Dracula himself glides through these morbid halls, singing operatically to his imprisoned comrades in terror?

Well, surely you’ve given a thorough mental examination to the notion of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera undergoing an epic mash-up with Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd and Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance.

Unmetal Monday – 6/26/2017

There’s a lot happening in the music world, and we here at Heavy Blog try our very best to keep up with it! Like the vast majority of heavy music fans, our tastes are incredibly vast, with our 3X3s in each Playlist Update typically covering numerous genres and sometimes a different style in each square. While we have occasionally covered non-metal topics in past blog posts, we decided that a dedicated column was once again warranted in order to more completely recommend all of the music that we have been listening to. Unmetal Monday is a weekly column which covers noteworthy news, tracks and albums from outside the metal universe, and we encourage you all to share your favorite non-metal picks from the week in the comments. This week, we’ll be highlighting several albums that struck our fancy over the past few weeks. Head past the jump to dial down the distortion:
