Watch Moon Tooth In New Full Concert Video AND Video Interview

WELL HELLO THERE. It's been a pretty goddamn long time since I've written one of these posts up, almost embarrassingly so. To be fair, the last concert videos I posted here of Neurosis and Sumac were some of my favorites I've done, so if I were to leave you all with something to hold you over, I could've done far worse. The truth of the matter though is that for a number of reasons (mostly beginning and ending with making a living as a freelancer), I just don't have the time like I did even a year ago to dedicate to producing these kind of high-quality concert videos on a consistent basis. But even though my output has slowed down considerably, I am as determined as ever to create interesting and awesome content for everyone to enjoy, which is why I'm so pleased to be finally launching these couple of videos today of Long Island's eclectic, energetic, and amazing Moon Tooth!

Heavy Blog Is Heavy’s Editors’ Picks for February 2016

Welcome to our monthly post, Editors' Picks! In the recent two years, our editorial body has grown quite a bit: from basically two guys running everything, we now have around seven people managing the blog in an editorial capacity, including two (count 'em, two!) Editors in Chief. We thought we'd harness that unique body of editors and use their over-reaching perspective to shed light on specific releases each month. These might be releases we've already covered, stuff we haven't even mentioned once or somewhere in between; the idea is to accentuate great metal each month, helping you to sift out the truly great from the immense body of work that is released each month. The way it works is simple: each editor gets to pick one album released in January. We write short pieces about them and link you to the album, allowing you to check it out yourselves. There's no genre restrictions: expect to see some gnarly stuff on here as most of our editors have a very wide range of musical appreciation. Without further ado, let's dig in into this month's offering!

Soon – Vol. 1

Doom metal is a hard genre to get right. As a sound with such a huge focus on balance - slow, but also fast enough, riffy, but also interesting enough, simple, but also complex enough - it can be incredibly har... Read More...
