Old Man Gloom Album Actually Happening, As Hoped

Old Man Gloom

I don’t know about you, but I was hoping Old Man Gloom would release some new shit. Ever since last May, when Kurt Ballou prematurely posted something on Facebook about Old Man Gloom returning with an album, I have been waiting with baited breath for the arrival of new Gloom. Well, looks like the rumors […]

Bus Driver Bails On The Devil’s Blood

The Devil's Blood

What a shitnozzle! I mean, who does this? A wretched, putrid piece of fried gorilla labia, that’s who! The Devil’s Blood are on tour as the moment with Watain and Behemoth. Now, they’re on tour with no driver. The dude jumped ship Sunday. And he didn’t leave empty-handed. “This piece of shit who was supposed […]

Converge, Napalm Death Split Coming


This very well could be a sign that Mayans knew their shit. Converge and Napalm Death — two insanely awesome bands in their own right — have come together for a split release, bridging the worlds of personal and politically driven extreme music, says a press release. “Recorded as part of their new album sessions, […]

The Black Dahlia Murder Officially Announce New Bassist

Trevor Strnad

I was going to be a dick and title this post “Trevor Strnad’s Deadspeak: A Note On BDM’s New Bassist,” but I guess that would have been a bit misleading. Trevor Strand — Black Dahlia Murder’s frontman, and (I guess, since dude don’t return emails anymore) ontime GSA columnist — has written a lengthy post […]

Mayhem Festival Cruise Officially Announced

It's on bitch

I admit I’m a little late with this, but who gives a fuck? This cruise is going to be the shit, and may provide the perfect opportunity to face that sea-sickness issue you have head-on. The first annual Mayhem Festival Cruise is taking over the Carnival Imagination, and will make its maiden voyage Friday, December […]

Hear A New Whitechapel Song — Right Now!


Head to the end of this post if you wanna listen to it. The song is called “Hate Creation,” and its pretty sick, to be fair. Like, sick. Like, punishing and brutal and every adjective that’s always overused. Listen — you will see what I mean. The song comes from Whitechapel, the band’s self-titled fourth […]

Readers’ Bands: You’re Gonna Love Lago


Long before we even considered giving online ink to some of our readers’ bands, members of Lago reached out to express their love for Gun Shy Assassin. Lago even sent me a demo and a tee shirt, which I continue to wear today. It was the first time an actual band acknowledged how awesome the […]

Malevolence Name Third Album


That’s right, kids. Portuguese extreme progressive metal act Malevolence have christened their forthcoming LP Antithetical. There is no release date yet for the band’s forthcoming third album. The main theme of the album illustrates a razor-sharp concept inspired from Ancient Greek Etymology that reflects the diametrical opposition to a number of propositions consisting in the […]

Stop what you are doing, and head for the end of this post right now. That is where you will find an exclusive song from Moonloop’s forthcoming album Deeply From The Earth.

Abiotic Start Recording Forthcoming Metal Blade Debut


I don’t know about you folks, but when I shit, I need to read. It could be a magazine, a book, the back of a toothpaste tube…something, anything. I like to read and drop anchor, and always have. After finishing my most recent bathroom book (Albert Camus’ “The Stranger”), I started a book I had […]
