BleakHeart to release ‘Dream Griever’ debut on October 23rd

We need the art/discourse of our world to speak to our times. Homogeneity is hopefully impossible but we always seem to strive for it as a species to brand ourselves within confines that constitute an allegedly safe, capitalist ‘normal’ – even as we scramble to buy sugary drinks that would kill any mildly diabetic person, […]

The metal and punk community are devastated but it is nice to see so many people coming together to honor and mourn a truly great frontman. Rest In Power Riley was trending on Twitter over some […]

Venomous Concept’s ‘Politics Versus the Erection’, out 8.28

I have long maintained that Kevin Sharp (of Brutal Truth fame) has the distinctly most savage and hearty screaming voice in metal and the latest from his project with Napalm Death alumni, Venomous Concept‘s Politics Versus The Erection, does little to shake that certainty. The bellow to out bellow them all is paired with the […]
