Gravehill

After Dustin Boltjes of Skeletonwitch — one of our newest writers — contributed a column on must-see horror flicks, we decided to open the topic up to the members of other bands. Why? Well, in addition to music and literature, we’re huge movie buffs and feel maybe your life could benefit from a big screen […]

Readers’ Bands: Valhalla Rising Are Rough And Raw

Valhalla Rising

This week, I decided to take some time out of my day to devote to Valhalla Rising, a London, Ontario-based four-piece that deals in straight fucking metal that’s raw and unrefined. This band could benefit from a producer, as you’ll see from the tune (a pre-production number) that follows at the end of this post. […]

Guest Column: Five Albums That Will Change You By Bloodsoaked’s Peter Hasselbrack

Bloodsoaked

A long time ago, we asked a bunch of bands to submit columns on the following topic: Five Albums That Will Change Your Life. Today, we bring you an entry provided by Bloodsoaked’s Peter Hasselbrack. Obituary’s Slowly We Rot John Tardy… What else can I say? His vocals are insane and while the production of […]

Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus Exclusive Video Premiere: “Anhedonia”

Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus

Around these parts, we’re fans of Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus, the Pennsylvanian ambient black metal band. So when they asked us to debut their new, tripped out video for “Anhedonia” (from the album Synkkä Tuuli, available now), we jumped at the chance. According to the band, the song is about drug addiction and withdrawal, and was influenced […]

Readers’ Bands: Kingdom Of Giants Craft Banal Metalcore

Kingdom of Giants

Sadly or perhaps not sadly, I’m not much for the metalcore anymore. Hell, I saw all of the greats — the fuckers who started the fucking genre — rock stages back in the day, so it’s been hard to get behind the bands of the modern scene after watching bands of nincompoops sully the metalcore […]

Metal From My ‘Hood: West Of Hell

West of Hell

Originally this band wasn’t exactly from my “hood.” They’re from West Auckland, New Zealand. They got the core of the band set but had trouble finding a singer locally. In 2009, they decided to pick up and make the biggest move of their young lives and eventually call Vancouver, British Columbia home. They played a […]

Today’s column comes from Third Ion member Justin Bender; check the band out here. […]

Sacrocurse Exclusive Album Stream: Unholier Master

Unholier Master

Look at that fucking cover. I mean, LOOK at it. You basically know an album’s going to destroy with a cover as regal as that one. Meet Sacrocurse from Mexico. The black/death metal band’s much-sought debut album, Unholier Master, is ready for you to hear it in its glorious, blasphemous entirety. Today, Gunshy brings you […]

Gunshy Assassin Presents: The Disastercast With Krieg’s Neill Jameson

Krieg

It’s been a while, but we’re back, folks. The Disastercast returns this week after a month off. What gives with the hiatus, you ask? Well, let’s just say one person booked three interview times with us and bailed each time, delaying the podcast for three back-to-back weeks. Shit happens, folks. But look, we’re back now […]
