DRAWERS “SELF-TITLED”

Dear Metal Fans: Just wanted to let you know that Gojira are not the only French band out there shredding skin, melting faces and cracking skulls. Five gentlemen from the city of Toulouse have just released their eponymous album, and what do you know? Cheese, wine and towers are not the only thing our friends on the other side of

SARKE “ARUAGINT”

The best part of a “supergroup” is the realization that if all these musicians from different bands get together for a special side project, it must be because they appreciate and are fans of the other artists involved, they are  involved in this project because there was something that appealed to them artistically (or whatthefuckever), or they figured they’d get

DESTRAGE “ARE YOU KIDDING ME? NO.”

It seems that the metal stronghold of Europe, long held by our Scandanavian brothers, is being challenged by our paesanos in Italy. First Tombstone Highway‘s Ruralizer popped up on the hardcore radar last year, and now we are treated to the latest by Destrage, Are You Kidding Me? No. Not only do Italians know food, they apparently also know heavy

INDIAN “FROM ALL PURITY”

Each Halloween, there is a very “special” haunted house/horror experience called Blackout that is presented in New York City. It is not your usual guy-in-a-rubber-Freddy-Krueger-mask hiding-behind-a-cardboard-tombstone affair, but rather a true 30 minutes of absolute crap-your-pants-and-pee-down-your-legs terror. Not only must you go through it totally alone, but at any moment you could be in a room with a gibbering, naked

CANNABIS CORPSE/GHOUL “SPLATTERHASH”

Hardcore motherfreakin’ heavy metal and weed. Yes, yes indeed. Whereas the illustrious plant known as marijuana only seems to be associated with reggae or jam bands, guess what? Headbangers do bong hits, too! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. Recently legalized for purchase in Colorado (God bless you, CO!!), herb is enjoyed by denim-vest-wearing, long-haired heshers, as well. This is why

Korn - Paradigm

Korn “The Paradigm Shift”

The “Head” is back, babies! That’s right. With the return of Brian “Head” Welch, Korn is back, and they are better, badder and blowing fans away. Their new release, The Paradigm Shift, is quite possibly the best Korn album since Follow The Leader. The mistakes of some misguided style experimentation (The Path of Totality … Skrillex? … Really?) can be

SOULFLY “SAVAGES”

When shown a list of song titles like “Savages”, “Cannibal Holocaust”, “This Is Violence”, Master of Savagerym,” and “Fuck Reality,” any metal fan worth his mettle should excitedly raise his pierced eyebrow and query, “New Soulfly album?” And that is correct. Raise your glass of beer on high and rejoice.  There’s a new Soulfly record in town, Savages, and it’s

Scorpion Child

SCORPION CHILD “SELF-TITLED”

Imagine a young Robert Plant as the frontman of Black Sabbath, but born in the arid expanse of the Texas desert rather than Birmingham, England. It is pretty much the “Perfect Storm” of heavy metal, blues, and stoner rock. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, deviants and desperadoes, may I present to you from Austin, Texas … Scorpion Child. If

Amon Amarth - Deceiver

AMON AMARTH “DECEIVER OF THE GODS”

I stood in front of the mirror and slowly removed my shirt. After just listening to the new Amon Amarth album, Deceiver of the Gods, I was sure I would find my body black and blue, covered with bruises. This album is not only an aural assault, it is literally a sonic juggernaut that pummels you with its wall of
