Gorgoroth Sign Deal For Next Album


I happen to be a fan of Gorgoroth. I just think they’re somewhat lackadaisical, which some folks could accuse me of being and rightly so. I feel like it’s been forever since we’ve gotten some new Gorgoroth, but that will change in June with the release of Instinctus Bestialis. The band just signed with Soulseller […]

Dillinger Escape Plan Frontman Teases The Black Queen


Two years ago, Greg Puciato — lead singer for the Dillinger Escape Plan and a member of Killer Be Killed — revealed he was also working with another project called The Black Queen. Not to be confused with BlackQueen. Since 2013, we’ve heard nary a word from Greg about The Black Queen. But now, there’s […]

Agoraphobic Nosebleed Solo Albums Coming Along

Agoraphobic Nosebleed

So the infamous grindcore band is going to be releasing something already.
