Trooper_pump clip_main hi

We know, we know, this Trooper beer is old news. You've seen a bazillion blog posts on every metal website in the internetiverse about it and maybe, if it's available where you live, you've even tried it. It's an Iron Maiden beer, so of course you have. But it's actually more than a typical "big-name band slaps logo on piss-colored fizz water lager and calls it good." This is, in fact, the ...

Year of No Light featured

In just two weeks, French sexies... uh... sextet Year of No Light will release their 3rd official full-length record, Tocsin, through Debemur Morti Productions.  Caught somewhere between bludgeoning metal bluster and chamber orchestra sound sculpture, Tocsin arrives three-and-a-half years after the band's last official studio album, Ausserwelt (though only a few months after their soundtrack ...

deciblog - obelyskkh

Germany's Obelyskkh may have one of the oddest monikers in extreme music today, but just as their choice of band name tests all parts of your pronunciation apparatus, so does their music cover all bases in the world of psychedelic, stoner, sludge, doom rock and metal on new record, Hymn to Pan out on Exile on Mainstream Records. They've even thrown in a little bit of influence from the likes of ...

Subrosa Photo 2 (Color) – DSC_5542-5 comp

I live a mere 2,200 miles due east of Salt Lake City, so needless to say I'm not too familiar with many musical happenings there (other than Gaza, RIP). Fortunately, Rebecca Vernon and the rest of SubRosa were more than happy to educate me about their hometown via the quintet's SLC music playlist. I'll let the guitarist/vocalist take it from here: "SubRosa is a product of the Salt Lake music ...

Sucker For Punishment: Go big, or GTFO

By: Adrien Begrand Posted in: featured On: Wednesday, November 13th, 2013


This past week I was lucky enough to have young Baltimore thrash phenoms Noisem roll through my part of the world, and while I was already an admirer of the band – Agony Defined is the best thrash album of the year – I was curious to see how their intense yet riffy brand of thrash translated live. The poor folks gathered on the floor of the club, they didn’t know what hit them. They arrived ...

If you haven't heard Earthless's From the Ages yet, you are missing out on the best instrumental psych jam album of the year. These guys don't NEED a vocalist; any singer would just get left behind, abandoned to float off in space forever. The members of the band were kind enough to give a track by track breakdown for us (which, admittedly, wasn't too hard, considering that there are only four ...
