Drug Honkey – Cloak of Skies

Drug Honkey – Cloak of Skies

Doom metal is a genre close to collapse, I'm more and more sure of it. It has as much redundancy currently as NY hardcore and baby boomer punk, so think about it, do you really want to keep listening to it? It's far too hesitant to change when change is needed, and far too comfortable […]

Interview with Fire-Toolz (Angel, More Like Cybergoddess)

I avoid the cliquery of the noise "scene". The artists who don't deserve credit get it, and the ones who truly deserve it are strangely overlooked. It's a bizarre reality, at least in my opinion.

Recently I haven't had much willpower to do any reviews of new bands. I've been too busy embracing Mories from Gnaw Their Tongues, Cloak of Altering, and Aderlating among many other bands as my God. Somehow he keeps churning out great releases like his split with Dragged Into Sunlight and Cloak of Altering's latest release, Manifestation.  As […]

Immortal Bird – Empress/Abscess

Did you ever read a review and smile at all of the praise, only to get to the score and wonder what in the hell happened in the meantime?  This actually occurred when this album here was on repeat at the homestead over the past few days.  We enjoy, sometimes, checking out what others have […]
