An Oozing Contest, Plus We Catch Up with Brian Chippendale

By: kevin.stewart-panko Posted in: contest, featured, interviews, tours, videos On: Thursday, March 14th, 2013

Black Pus - PUS COLORS

If you're a fan of Lightning Bolt's immensely quirky, insanely loud, outsider extreme music, then the name Brian Chippendale is probably very familiar to you. He's the dervish behind the drums, often seen wearing a sock on his head with a microphone sewn into it as he seemingly grows three extra arms so as to hit everything in sight at the highest velocity. Chippendale also has a side ...

STREAMING: Spiritual Beggars “Wise As A Serpent”

There are times when you just want to forget the world around you and just cut a Persian rug. Great rock records were made without worrying what Tom, Dick, and Harriet Tubman were up to and how they perceived a sound, a scene, a recording technique, or a pair of pants. Sweden's Spiritual Beggars have been doing what they want since their inception back in 1992 when Swedish death metal was hip and ...

Live Review: Maserati/Beware of Safety

My first exposure to Maserati came when they opened for Mono a few years back. I had no idea who they were or what their deal was, but as soon as they kicked into their post-rock-meets-80s-motorik groove, I was sold. In fact, compared to them, Mono were positively soporific. I’ve made a point to try to catch them whenever they’ve come through since. Their show on March 5 was the second ...

NaderSadek live

Egyptian-born Nader Sadek, stage set designer and mask maker extraordinaire for kvltists Sunn O))) and Mayhem, received further notoriety nearly two years ago by writing a phenomenal death metal record and getting legendary gentlemen like Steve Tucker (ex-Morbid Angel), Rune Eriksen (Aura Noir, Ava Inferi), and Flo frickin' Mounier (Cryptopsy) to lay it down all brutal-like.  In the Flesh ruled ...

VIDEO PREMIERE: Incantation’s “Invoked Infinity”

We couldn't think of a better way to spread some Valentine's Day love than premiering the brand new Incantation video for "Invoked Infinity". Before you start headbanging at your desk to the opening track to last year's Vanquish In Vengeance (and the band's first video in ten years), we'll let bassist Chuck Sherwood and Kristoff Bates (who, along with Incantation drummer Kyle Severn, runs Black ...

VIDEO PREMIERE: The Gates of Slumber’s “Death March”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: featured, free, videos On: Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

Gates of slumber

Massive, hirsute man mountains, the members of The Gates of Slumber are the living avatars of the music that they play. Their behemoth doom strides powerfully back through the mists of time, crushing all in its path. In the likely event that you’ve never heard them, the kind folks at Scion AV have given you the perfect opportunity with the release of the 100% free Stormcrow EP. If that ...

VIDEO PREMIERE: Aborted “Expurgation Euphoria”

Belgian gore-lords Aborted have been kickin' corpses and plenty of detal metal ass since the mid-'90s. But they've only reached their true potential---that's a personal opinion---in recent years, where they've added more meat, guts, and other musical offal to their boiling cauldron. Although I'm partial to Goremageddon: The Saw and the Carnage Done, I think new album, Global Flatline, is their ...

The Huffing Dead

DVD-Cover

Remember the collective freakout we had last year when that "Bath Salt Zombie"* ate another man's face on a Miami causeway? Well, picture a more frenzied, pluralized version of that event set to a hardcore punk rock soundtrack -- e.g., The Dwarves, The Meatmen, ANTiSEEN, The Murder Junkies, World War IX -- and you'll have some idea of the gory, outrageous, campy straight-up insanity that awaits ...

Mount Pleasant, Michigan's Cloud Rat play grind and they play it really well. They have a new album in the holster and on the ready entitled Moksha, courtesy the fine folks at Halo of Flies. What follows is an interview with guitarist Rorik Brooks and some vids and crap I lifted from their website. Check 'em out, they rule. For those not in the know, can you give the history of Cloud Rat? We ...

VIDEO PREMIERE: Lightning Swords of Death “Baphometic Chaosium”

Man, it gets fucking crazy in the Lightning Swords of Death practice space if this video for "Baphometic Chaosium" -- the title track of the new record available now -- is any indication. There are what appears to be grown-up versions of the Phantasm munchkins, a rather busty-sassy ram-headed demoness, and several trim dudes in shades churning out the sort of blackened death metal that keeps the ...
