Pic of the Day: Black Metal Menu

October 13, 2010

By now, most of you are familiar with “accessible” colon-crushing, metal-themed eateries like Kuma’s Corner and the Grill ‘Em All burger truck. But this mysterious menu we stumbled across on the Interhole is clearly only for those with a taste for the rawest production and even rarer meats.

5 Albums That Remind Me of High School by Laura Pleasants (Kylesa)

October 13, 2010

Danzig: 3 How the Gods KillI think this came out right before I entered high school, but it was a main stay in my CD player throughout the 4 years. I was completely obsessed with Danzig, Samhain and Misfits. I loved it all and listened to this stuff constantly. I think this is probably my…

Seraphic Decay Lives!

October 12, 2010

Seraphic Decay was a Midwest-based death metal label that enjoyed a productive, if very short, existence. The first release was a 7” by Ohio maniacs Minch, but releases by Rigor Mortis (pre-Immolation), Incantation, Mortician, Derketa, Disgrace, Abhorrence (pre-Amorphis) Agathocles, Disgrace, Xysma, and few more culties soon followed over the course of 1990 – 1992.

Niklas Sundin (Laethora) Interviewed

October 11, 2010

The Light… was written in an entirely different way than March…, and there’s a healthy four year period between the releases, so a lot of time was spent rehearsing and generally getting the feel for what we wanted the second album to be like. Most of the debut album was written in a relatively short period in 2005, whereas the The Light… songs have taken form organically in the rehearsal room in a real band setting, which I think makes the songs more real and solid.

Ashmedi’s (Melechesh) biographical column & chaotic metaphysical thoughts, Part XV

October 7, 2010

This was a hectic summer. The album recording took all my time and attention. I lost track of night and day, was locked up in the studio for around over a 100 days. Give or take a few days. So, am I excused for the delay in delivering this edition? I would like to thank…

Confirmed: Beavis and Butt-head are Returning

July 23, 2010

“Beavis and Butt-Head are not role models. They’re not even human. They’re cartoons. Some of the things they do would cause a person to get hurt, expelled, arrested, possibly deported. To put it another way: Don’t try this at home.” It was recently confirmed that one of the greatest television shows ever in the history…
