September 20, 2019 Blake Harrison
The voice of a generation – and Hatebeak – gets metal thrashing mad this week.
Napalm Death, Agnostic Front and More: Live Review
October 19, 2015 Daniel Lake
Sure, the more populous mid-Atlantic cities are a safer bet for metal acts looking to earn a decent night’s pay, but Frederick, MD has been starved long enough for our underground metal love to get passionate and sloppy. Look at what happens when Napalm Death and friends drop by.
Relapse Records release 26-track compilation as a free download
October 14, 2013 Jonathan Horsley
Relapse could probably have found a stronger name for their 2013 autumn/winter sampler than, uhh, Relapse Sampler 2013. Cast your mind back when Earache were releasing their Grindcrusher sampler series, and Peaceville had the enigmatically titled Under the Sign of the Sacred Star; that was how you named a sampler.

The Most Inspired Split 12-Inch Pairing Ever?
May 1, 2012 Andrew Bonazelli

Municipal Waste and Toxic Holocaust, two bands that, as Tankcrimes honcho Scotty Heath says, “brought thrash back from the basements to the big stage” join forces on the Toxic Waste 12-inch. Savor that genius for a second. While we’ve only got the art available for you right now, (courtesy of…
STREAMING: Toxic Holocaust “Bitch”
June 13, 2011 Chris Dick
1. hol·o·caust [hol-uh-kawst, hoh-luh-]“a great or complete devastation or destruction, especially by fire.” — Immortal’s Abbath Doom Occulta would disagree with this definition, especially the “fire” bit.
