October 5, 2010

Rumors are that Anal Cunt’s Seth Putnam is releasing a “celebrity” sex tape in support of his upcoming cock rock album on PATAC Records. While not much is known if Putnam is truly going the Warrant route or is merely taking a piss (predicted) with his as-yet-untitled cock rock debut, photos have surfaced showing the…

Amorphis – “Tales From the Thousand Lakes”

October 5, 2010

Tales From the Thousand Lakes is a pivotal album. Not just for Amorphis—if it weren’t for loads of ambition, wide-open minds and a bit of dumb luck, this induction would never be—but for death metal post-1994.

Vinyl Nerds, you’re fucking dead

October 4, 2010

So after the lukewarm reception the Triple Decker record received last week, here’s another innovative way to present vinyl- with your own shitty ashes. And Vinyly will produce up to 30 records that contain your earthly remains, each one with 24 minutes of whatever audio and artwork you think will somehow represent your life, which…

Refused – “The Shape of Punk to Come”

August 18, 2010

The story of Refused’s last—and best—album starts with the first line of Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl,” which drummer David Sandström scrawled across one wall of the band’s recording space as a mantra: “I have seen the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness.”

Dismember – “Like an Everflowing Stream”

August 1, 2010

Mea culpa: It’s hard not to mention Entombed when discussing this month’s Hall of Fame inductee, Dismember’s 1991 debut full-length Like an Ever Flowing Stream. It’s also a bit tired and unfair to both.

Eyehategod Tour Diary, Part Trois

July 23, 2010

By Mike Williams & Gary Mader (Eyehategod) Boston, MA 6/15/10 Pulled into Boston at 3:30; load in not until 6 p.m. Hours of nothing to do as usual. The show tonight is at the Cambridge Elk’s Lodge, very much like playing at a rented out Lion’s Home, or an old VFW hall. The promoter had…

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…

Cephalic Carnage / Summer Slaughter Tour Diary Pt. 2

July 22, 2010

Today, I learned about “feather footing.” Y’see, I’ve never driven a 15-passenger van before, let alone one with a trailer the size of my dining room towed behind it. During my quick tutorial, I learned that in order to prevent the engine from overheating, you’re supposed to not depress too hard on the gas and…
