heavy metal

Here's a brief smattering of things to catch you all up on!

In 2009, I remember telling people that the cover art for Blackguard's album "Profugus Mortis" was a near perfect representation of the music contained on the album; a flying canoe full of colonial-era drunkards being chased by an apparently clumsy demon.

With the release of "Zerospace" in 2002, there was no hotter industrial band than the Kidneythieves. Shortly thereafter, the two-person troupe of singer/lyricist Free Dominguez and one-man-band Bruce Somers went on hiatus. In 2007, the band announced they were back in action and furiously writing songs, which culminated in the summer of 2010's triumphant return and the powerful album "Trypt0fanatic." Now back in the studio and recording their upcoming EP "Invisible Plan," the duo is working feverishly and putting out the same hard-charging, electronically influenced music they became known for almost a decade ago. Taking a moment off from their recording, Bruce and Free were generous enough to sit down and talk about what's new with the band, what it's like to be back, and how they ended up on the soundtrack of a Final Fantasy game.

Wie findest du die neues Musik von Deadlock? Ich finde sie toll!

Working in the sweltering clubs of Miami and the surrounding area, Shroud Eater has been an undeniable force in underground, DIY metal since the release of their newest creation, "ThunderNoise." Taking time out of the hectic schedule of daily life and promoting the band, the three members of Shroud Eater, Jeannie Saiz, Janette Valentine and Felipe Torres sat down to chew on some of our questions, as we talk about life, music and doing it on your own.

Longtime noise rock veterans KEN mode drafted another bassist and went back to the drawing board for their fourth recording, "Venerable." The Canadians, freshly armed with new producer Kurt Ballou (of Converge fame,) dive into the deep end of genre with no hesitation, leaving behind tame mantras

Soundgarden’s new old live album “Live on I5” is an interesting time capsule of music from fifteen years ago.

For those who have never been, the Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts is one of the preeminent venues in the entire Mid-Atlantic or New England region.

The entire experience of Crowbar's "Sever the Wicked Hand" comes down to a good news/bad news equation.

Slayer frontman Tom Araya was admitted to the hospital and kept, thus canceling Slayer's Sydney, Australia tour date at Soundwave.
