Amorphis Talk Jens Bogren And The Return Of Olli-Pekka ‘Oppu’ Laine In First Trailer For “Queen Of Time”

It’s April, and we are already wishing the summer away. Why? It isn’t the heat, nor the humidity. Most notably, it is the co-headlining North American tour this fall featuring Amorphis and Dark Tranquillity. That said, we are excited to have something to hold us over in the form of Amorphis‘ new album, entitled Queen of Time, which will release

Ministry’s Music Video For “Victims Of A Clown” Is Not For The Coulrophobic

We must admit that we had to Google “coulrophobic” when we received the email featuring Ministry‘s new video for “Victims of a Clown.” From Dictionary.com: Coulrophobic (noun) – an abnormal fear of clowns.

Memoriam: “The Silent Vigil” Album Review

Alright, you caught me. I’m in a love affair … with old school, straight-for-the-jugular, death metal. It’s stripped-down, riff-heavy, and brutal as hell, whether it’s played slow or fast. Obituary, Death, Bolt Thrower, Asphyx, etc., are all fine examples of this stellar genre. Memoriam – former Bolt Thrower members Karl Willets and Andy Whale, along with Frank Healy (Benediction), and Scott

Lamb Of God To Play One-Off U.S. Headlining Dates With Behemoth

Slayer‘s farewell tour may well be the most anticipated set of metal performances of the year (save mega-acts like Metallica’s 2018/2019 dates). Beginning in May, the iconic metallers will join forces with Behemoth, Lamb of God, Testament, Anthrax, and Napalm Death to tackle North America during two lengthy legs. Fans in a handful of cities that won’t see a tour
