The Dutch thrash metal band Legion of the Damned have ridden the wave of time, having formed in 1994, and they are with their seventh album, Slaves of the Shadow Realm. Adding tastes of death and black metal to their work, they capture the best concepts these genres have to offer.

Unearth: “Extinction(s)” Album Review

Get in the fucking pit! That’s the first thing that comes to mind when I hit play on Unearth’s new album Extinction(s).

Album Review: Pig Destroyer, ” Head Cage”

If age is wisdom, than Pig Destroyer are the owls of the grindcore kingdom. These Virginians have been blasting their way through violent noise for more than two decades, and while they’ve written and produced stand-out albums over their tenure (2001’s Prowler in the Yard is a prime example), their output over the last decade is unrivaled in calculated beat-downs.

Skindred: “Big Tings” Album Review

Oh hell yes! Big Tings, the new album from Skindred, is straight up fiyah! Imagine Living Colour with some badass reggae riffs and vocals and you’ll get my drift.
