Double Header – Trepaneringsritualen

Seeing as we love this guy so much in all his blood-crusted beardiness, figured we’d save some time covering two labels and two different releases at once, as this special article style of ours is want to do.  Thomas Ekelund, known as Trepaneringsritualen, we first reviewed in a split LP with DEATHSTENCH released by Malignant […]

Cassette Assault! Noise, Noisy, Noisier!

Uh oh, folks, it’s time for another…cassette assault!!!!  Or perhaps those exclamatives should be written as !!!!11!11!!!!  Either way, we’re bringing it in that beautiful analog format that warps in the sun and makes stuff like this sound even better.  Last time we had a selection of four beautiful pieces of plastic from one label, […]

Unlocking the Truth of Said 8th Grade Metal Band (Yeah, They Suck, Get Over It)

Metal, everyone who’s in wishes other people would just stay the Hell out.  A huge portion of it thrives on the underground fanatic, that type who covers themselves in logos until their skin is practically made out of cloth, who purchases everything on cassette for some God damn reason, who knows what metal is, and […]

The Worst Band Photo in History

No, what you see above is not the photograph in question.  Keep reading for the reveal.  Oh why, ghastly world of ours, why do you permit such things to exist?  It’s band photos of this nature that make us question if there really is a point to it all.  The answer in this case is […]

Cassette Assault! No Visible Scars

It’s a…..cassette assault!  That’s a new thing for us around here.  We get a bunch of cassettes from a single label, or band, and we have at it, firing that beautiful celluloid like so many bullets, filling your corpse with the notations of sweet, hissing tape through a blown-speaker Magnavox.  Take it like a champ!

Top 10 Most Badass Awesome Action Figures of the 1980s

Sometimes I wonder if I’m just reaching that age where nostalgia kicks in.  Then I think, no, today really does suck.  As far as pop culture goes, it all pretty much ruled from the 70s to mid 90s.  In the middle is the golden period of absolute coolness in toys, the 1980s.  You’re probably expecting […]

Quick and Dirty Reviews

Here we go again, folks, dirty reviews, and a hella dirty, poorly Photoshopped header taken from a forgotten Mexican horror film that probably involves wrestling.  Whenever we have a ton of things to dish out, and we need it done fast, hard, and dirty, we do this.  A paragraph with some blab and a score, […]

Compilation Dissertation: Fuck the Underground Volume 1

New feature folks, and here it is.  Sometimes we get compilations around here, and we’re always at odds with how to exactly approach a review.  Do we simply go over it as any submission, picking out a few tidbits on which you may gnaw?  A few stale crumbs on which you may piss?  And then […]

The Vault: Pollution – N.S. Drugs

Here it is folks, a resurrection, the first resurrection, maybe the only resurrection you’re ever going to need.  A new feature we’re going to do around here is hereby called “The Vault,” but maybe we’ll change that sometime in the future.  Basically, old reviews from the original site will be reposted here, if we feel they’re […]

Fuck This: Faith No More – Tribute of the Year, Disk 2

Shortly after completing part one of “Fuck This: Tribute of the Year“, I began to feel ill. I’m not making this up. For about three weeks, I felt malaised, lethargic… unwell. I’m a productive type and I lead a very busy life. To that end, I often don’t sleep enough or eat properly, but this […]
