The Atrocity Exhibit – Extinction Solution (I Will Buy The Shirt)

  Yeah you know this site, we rip on grindcore something fierce. Not sorry. Usually the trash we get is not just trash, it's the oozing bile sinking to the bottom of the trash. No, it's lower than that, it's the blackened stench you can't even see that emanates from that foul liquid and not even […]

Lychgate – The Contagion in Nine Steps (Scholarly Metal)

  Nice, that cover by the totally unknown Michael Guy is the perfect lead-in because I've been waiting to use the word 'scholarly' in reference to metal so I can feel like I'm above everyone else.

DRIFT. – Black Devotion EP

A welcome release from the pain of banal musicians.  So long have I dealt in things dark, yet constantly weak in the sense of suck. So typical for extreme music, rely on aggression.  Must the dark always be as such?  No, sometimes delicacy is needed, something ethereal and frail.  Like a gaunt bride under a […]
