The Dive: Stoners or Desert Folk?

Stoner metal has always fascinated me, but over the last couple of years we haven’t really been given the opportunity to review a lot of bands in the genre. Since THE DIVE is giving me the opportunity to dig in a little bit I would like to give you some of the background. I...

Wishdoom: Helepolis

I have written many pieces on doom metal bands and I actually consider PENTAGRAM to be one of the most influential bands in my quest for music knowledge because they truly opened me up to doom metal. Although I don’t normally get into a lot of personal preferences I can say that doom metal...

Betrayl: Abandonment

Before I tell you about the band let’s take a look at some of the songs on BETRAYL’s new album ABANDONMENT: LOW EXPECTATIONS starts with a vomiting type noise and all I can say is we go from there. The many starts and stops in the song blend well with the pissed off and...

Meliah Rage: Dead To The World

I have talked with the people at METAL ON METAL RECORDS and thought they were a pretty good group, but after the last couple of weeks I’m beginning to question if my instincts were wrong. I say this because they are trying to kill me. With my weakness for thrash, METAL ON METAL has...

Mournful Congregation: The Unspoken Hymn

A collection of minimalist sounds that center around themes of desolation, despair, depression, and anything else that could make you want to jump off a bridge. Since 1993 Australia’s MOURNFUL CONGREGATION has been peddling the death and extreme doom to...

Remember: Three, Split, and Brutal

Bones with Necromancer, Carcass, and a Warlord

If the title made you laugh I’m not making light of BONES because the names are legit: JOE NECROMANCER, CARCASS CHRIS, and JOE WARLORD are the men behind the “hellish” metal band BONES. The guys hail from Chicago and hope that this debut album will ruin what’s left of their lives and yours. Apparently...
