Warbeast - Corbitt Interview

Exclusive Interview: Bruce Corbitt Of Rigor Mortis And Warbeast

Bruce Corbitt is the legendary lead vocalist of Rigor Mortis and Warbeast, and he is one of the greatest voices in metal. To find out that the universe, in all her glorious bitchiness, has given this man throat cancer is a major fucking disgrace. Fortunately, Corbitt was able to finish the latest – and possible last – Warbeast album, Enter

Septicflesh: “Codex Omega” Album Review

The newest offering from the almighty Septicflesh, Codex Omega, is an album that comes at you like a tsunami of symphonic, death, progressive, and doom metals that literally hits you like a wall of sonic devastation. This is one of those records that is relentless in its approach, blasting the listener from the moment it begins. At times coming across

Motorhead: “Under Cover” Album Review

Reviewing Motorhead‘s Under Cover album is a double-edged sword of emotions for this writer. A new Motorhead album? Fuck yeah! But it’s also a gut-clenching, heartbreaking reminder that we now live in a world without Lemmy Kilmister. Under Cover is an album of cover songs by Motorhead. I always loved any readings of other artists’ songs that Mr. Kilmister and the

Sorrowset: “All Ends, Begin With Ease” Album Review

Utah’s Sorrowset have a new coming record out, entitled All Ends, Begin With Ease. At times it is very reminiscent of At the Drive-In with staccato rhythms and disjointed beats accompanied by screamed angst-y lyrics. While there isn’t any real new ground being broken here, it does stand together as a cohesive piece of music, as a whole, and I will

The Lurking Fear

The Lurking Fear: “Out Of The Voiceless Grave” Album Review

To paraphrase Prince, “This is what it sounds like … when demons die.” The Lurking Fear do not want to be known as a “supergroup.” The fact that all the members hail from the best of the best in Swedish death metal is merely a coincidence. So, we won’t even mention the other bands they perform in, OK? This is

Hogan’s Goat: “Hogan’s Goat” Album Review

Well, brother Jamie Lee has dropped another killer album in my inbox this week. Prepare to get blown by the Goat! Hogan’s Goat, that is, out of Nashville, Tennessee. With the release of their self-titled debut, if the stars and planets align correctly, these boys will get a shot at the big league. If I could compare this album to

Empyrean Throne: “Chaosborne” Album Review

If death/black metal achieved popularity in ‘Murica like it has in Europe, Empyrean Throne would have the stature of bands like Dimmu Borgir, Behemoth, and Watain. Alas, this hasn’t come to fruition, but Empyrean Throne‘s Chaosborne is a pretty amazing example of what can be done with this genre here in North America. The cover art is totally badass, and

Gateway To Hell: “Clovers” EP Review

Ooooooooooo … this album is so full of heavy, bluesy, doomy metal with vocals that will make your naughty bits tingle! Clovers, the debut album from Gateway To Hell, will have you digging it from the first listen. Interesting fact: I heard the album before I read anything about them, and one of the first impressions I got was that

Doom Side Of The Moon: “Doom Side Of The Moon” Album Review

Here’s your “What the fuck?” album of 2017. The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd is easily in the top five albums of all time, no fucking arguments. It’s literally the definition of the words “perfection” and “classic.” Whodathunk a doom metal cover version almost 45 goddamned years later might actually be better? Yes, I know, these are truly the
