    New Jersey-based brazen black metallers Abazagorath have sprinkled the last six or seven years with splits and an EP, but October 7th of this year will see the release of their first album in ten years.  What does the band have in store for you on their nearly-dawned The Satanic Verses?  How do you feel about losing limbs, face flesh and copious amounts of blood from your neck?  Abazagorath promises all this (with occasional interludes so you can fully absorb what is happening to you) and threatens to turn your brain into an inescapable hall of dark rituals.

    While the news has had time to sink in with the passing of time, it was a big ol’ shocker when Witch Mountain vocalist Uta Plotkin announced she was stepping away from her post after five years of fronting the Portland doom heroes. According to drummer Nathan Carson, he and the other members [guitarist Rob Wrong and bassist Charles "Charles Dingus" Thomas] received the disheartening news via phone shortly after returning from a European tour a few months ago. Plotkin and Witch Mountain are on the tail end of their pairing – opening for Nik Turner’s Hawkwind across North…

Skinhand I met Ryan Wolfe, drummer of Richmond doom band Windhand, back in 2012, when I booked his band the first time they came through Chicago. After load-in, he asked me if the bar’s TV had cable. He wanted to watch the Washington Redskins/Buffalo Bills preseason game, which showcased the debut of highly touted first-round QB Robert Griffin III. I responded by telling him that the owner of the club was a hack and hadn’t paid his cable bill in years.

While the trio broke up in 2010, guitarist/vocalist Jimbob Isaac has resurfaced in Hark. The group released Crystalline earlier this year, an effort that will not leave Taint fans disappointed. When we asked Isaac to participate in this little series, we were excited to hear what he’d come up with: things to do in Swansea [Wales] when you’re dead. As he…

    19 Sep 2014 | 6:09 am
    Black Moth’s new album, Condemned To Hope, is brilliant. With it, the Leeds/London split five-piece have smelted British doom metal traditions into something vibrant yet weighty, borne aloft on a spiders legs’ worth of hooks, taking in everything from grunge to The Cramps via midnight scuffles at the chip shop to undead psychedelic experiences. It’s one of our favourite albums of 2014, which is why we sat down for a lengthy chat with vocalist Harriet Bevan and guitarist Nico Carew to get deep down into the nitty-gritty of Condemned To Hope. So, Condemned to Hope, it’s…

Let’s be honest, there are an awful lot of bands getting it wrong. Sometimes it can almost get too much and the urge to run off and go live in a cave, while taking up a radical new lifestyle, such as listening to Nicki Minaj on repeat, becomes ever more tempting.

The album they released in 2012 ‘Sounds of a Playground Fading’ was a bit different than what we were expecting. Their new album ‘Siren Charms’ released on September 9, 2014 is no different. We have seen the slow progress of style change in the making. Each album predating each other has paved the way to this new path. The new album hasn’t disappointed most of their fans, but some of us that grew up with In Flames prior to ‘Come Clarity’ may think…

Okay, false alarm. Jokes aside, I do enjoy a healthy dose of folk metal. Sure you’ve got your standards like Ensiferum and Korpiklaani that are among the bigger folk metal names, but deep down inside there’s some really well-hidden gems in the scene. Unfortunately, it seems that with every decent folk metal band you find, there’s at least five mediocre ones. South Yorkshire’s Northern Oak falls…

    Written By: El Cuervo I want to begin this review of Skyscraper‘s début, Elevation, with a game of complete the lyrics, from sixth track “Walk Through Fire.” “I walk through fire…” (a) “while in ferocious combat with the dragon sent by the Elven armies,” (b) “in order to emulate the fiery depths of Hell for my unification with Lucifer,” or (c) “for you.” Done? If you chose (a) or (b) then I regret to inform you that neither option is correct, but if you liked either, I would suggest that this record may not align with your usual musical preferences (and that…

    It was a close vote, but you have spoken.  We Love Metal readers want to name a METAL QUEEN. We only have room for 16 in the tournament brackets so we’re going to start with 32.  Four qualifying rounds will take place with eight entrants in each one.  The four with the highest percentages of votes will be entered into the bracket. We have 32 of the heaviest and sometimes legendary women in metal. They have been randomly selected by a “random number generator” to be placed in the qualifying rounds. Remember only the TOP 4 are going to have a place in the tournament so make…

  • Ex-Rings of Saturn Vocalist Peter Pawlak Returns with worse.

    Brian Shields
    20 Sep 2014 | 1:10 pm
    The last time most metal fans saw or heard from Peter Pawlak, the singer was summoning his “minions” as the original vocalist for Rings of Saturn.  His new project after the jump. Now Pawlak is back in the music world as the front-man for San Francisco-based grind band worse. “It’s been almost three years since I left Rings, and in that time I have been quite busy uncovering bits and pieces of information about myself that I had formerly neglected to recognize,” Peter tells me.  “My main focus during this period has been on my studies at San Francisco…

    A quick glance at him and you might not suspect Denton, Texas’ Steven Rose is a metal guitar god with an international following but that’s just what he is. With a long string of very impressive guitar covers on YouTube and a terrific death metal project in Cortexiphan, Steven has gained a reputation as one of the best young players in the scene. Learn more about him after the jump. Now Steven is releasing a CHON-inspired EP of instrumental pieces called A Living Messenger.

    One record overshadows all others when it comes to this week’s new releases but it was hardly the only album we reviewed in the middle week of September. This Week in Reviews after the jump. Eastwood – Language of Stars Ahmed Hasan gets us started off this week with a 3.5/5 review of Russian post-metal outfit Eastwood. Often you will hear an album described as “groundbreaking” or “innovative” but Ahmed says that’s not what you get with Language of Stars. “It’s not at all revolutionary, or something you likely haven’t ever heard before, but…

    Welcome to the third part in our ongoing series of Heavy Blog Is Heavy’s “Best Of” selections where we explore a genre of music and each of our dedicated authors picks a favorite album to share a personal experience with. For our third round, we have once again chosen a genre that is somewhat controversial—Power Metal. This time, the boundaries of the genre are much clearer but the genre itself tends to get a lot of heat. To be sure, the golden age of Power metal is possibly over. The 90’s brought a slew of bands into what was then a young genre, born from a freaky…

    Everyone’s favorite industrial soaked blackened grind machine Anaal Nathrakh is back and more barbaric than ever with another new track from their forthcoming album Desideratum, which drops October 28th through Metal Blade Records. Check it after the jump! Decibel Magazine have the exclusive stream for the track. ‘Monstrum in Animo’ pulses and pounds like a machine oiled with the tears of a thousand fallen angels. In other words, it is sure to further whet the appetites of the duo’s fans, and hopefully gain a few new ones in the process. Stay tuned as we near release…

    Many people automatically assume that once you admit to being color blind, you are only able to see the world in black and white. While this may be true for a small fraction of people, the majority of color blind people only have trouble seeing certain colors. For me, the colors which tend to cause...

    Everyone knows his name, but its the signature hockey mask which horror fans have come to love and identify over the years. Diving head first into the psyche of a cereal killer can prove to be a complex battle of unanswered questions. So rather than explore why he does what he does, lets just focus...

    In order to prevent myself from feeling like an old man, I’ll refrain from the discussion about how videos were sparse back in the day when there was no internet. During my younger years much time was spent watching MTV when they actually played music videos. Not only that, but they had a few shows...

Parallel Absolution is a favorite amongst fans, but it’s inception is rooted in a unique story. The year was somewhere around 2005 shortly after the release of...
