Inter Arma Return With “Citadel”

Inter Arma are ambitious, to say the least. They blew minds with their debut Sky Burial, and then followed that up with an even more reality-bending effort with the 45-minute, single track The Cavern EP. Given this kind of innovative output, these Virginians quickly established themselves as go-tos for a new generation of metallers. Inter Arma will return on April 12

Stream: Windhand’s “Diablerie” From Forthcoming Album

Grief’s Eternal Flower, the 2015 release from Windhand , is a mammoth album, full of heaving psychedelia elevated by Dorthia Cottrell‘s ominous vocals. Three years since its release, and it is still an intoxicating spin on the turntable. The Virginians are now preparing to release Eternal Return, and all signs on our Ouija board are pointing toward “Yes.” But don’t simply take our

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.

Skinless: “Savagery” Album Review

Brutal death metal can be a balm to cure any bad day. Pop the CD in or turn on Spotify, find a quiet highway, and just drive that sour day away. Skinless was the saving grace one foul day as I indulged in their latest release, Savagery. The genre is not known for polite aesthetics, but it provides rather primitive

Gruesome: “Twisted Prayers” Album Review

Death metal is an art form taken to extremes. It was never meant to be mainstream or radio-friendly.  Chuck Schuldiner, the mastermind behind Death, knew this, and he wrote songs with no regard for the mainstream.  He was a genius who left a legacy of impressive, important, albums for the world after his untimely death from cancer in 2001. Exhumed‘s
