Useless Bands Exchange Words Over Online Pedophilia Claims


Yes, I know these bands are far from actual metal, but I find it necessary to expose pedophilia claims whenever they arise.

After the […]

Gigan, Pyrrhon Announce Tour


Now this is one, I’ll be ultra pissed if I miss. I usually forget bands are coming through town. Until, like, the day of the show, and very often, I’ve already got cemented plans or not enough cash to get there and back AND get a ticket. It’s fucking $30 in tolls if I drive, […]

Puya To Release Live Album

Suffokate Drop Off Tour After Losing Two Members


This band Suffokate just needs to break up already, and stop finding new members. I feel like every other month, this band loses a member. This month, they’ve lost two members.
