Angerot: “The Splendid Iniquity” Album Review

South Dakota? OK, if you say so … Angerot‘s new album, The Splendid Iniquity, feels like classic Swedish death metal.

Vito Marchese Of The Kahless Clone Talks “Never-Ending Loneliness” In Exclusive Interview

For the past few weeks, I have been blowing up SkullsnBones and the Twitterverse with my love for the new The Kahless Clone EP, Our Never-Ending Loneliness.
