A Gwar documentary is coming out soon, folks. And a trailer for the movie follows at the end of this post. It’s sad, to hear Dave Brockie’s voice again. Still can’t believe that dude is gone. Anyways, the film was directed by band manager Don Drakulich and produced by Gwar “Slave” Bob Gorman. A release […]

Here’s Exmortus Riffing The National Anthem


I have heard many other countries’ “theme songs,” as it were. Many are quite beautiful. Most, though, are unlistenable dreck. But none has ever come close to giving me goosebumps, which hearing the U.S. national anthem sometimes does.

Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus

Around these parts, we’re fans of Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus, the Pennsylvanian ambient black metal band.

Skeletonwitch Release Gruesome Video


As expected, the new Skeletonwitch video is not for the meek or faint of heart. These dudes like to get crazy and disgusting, and it’s awesome.

Behemoth Are No Pussies; Play Tel Aviv

Decapitated Issue Album Trailer


Album trailers are weird. They don’t ever give a true sense for what a record actually sounds like, much like movie trailers are often deceiving as to story lines. Nonetheless, I get excited for album trailers when they’re from bands I dig. Hence, I bring you this trailer for Blood Mantra, the new Decapitated album. […]
