Kataklysm – Of Ghosts and Gods (2015)

Kataklysm - Of Ghosts And Gods - Artwork

If there’s one thing I can say about Kataklysm in 2015, it’s that they will prevail. Of Ghosts and Gods is by far the most impressive material I’ve heard from Kataklysm as if recently. This album contains ample amounts of ruination right next to adept composition. This is essential to listen to in 2015. Read the rest of this entry »

Death Angel – The Bay Calls for Blood (2015)

Death Angel - The Bay Calls For Blood - Live In San Francisco - Artwork

If there’s one time I would pick to see Death Angel, it would be performing in their hometown of San Francisco. But until then, I have their live album! This release with the clever title of The Bay Calls for Blood is the ultimate live release. Combining the material of the heart-racing thrashers with a solid live set is as good as a live album can get. The vast majority of songs they perform are off their 2013 release The Dream Calls for Blood, and I’ll say right now I wish they offered more variety with their older material. But the songs that were featured definitely sent the crowd into annihilation! Read the rest of this entry »

38924_artist

There are multiple brutalers such as myself who hate knowing their favorite maniacal bands are either taking a hiatus or broke up altogether. So when a band such as Broken Hope re-emerged as even more of a slaughtering beast than they were before, well as you can imagine they have been making fans very happy. And with a new line-up, there can’t be much more going on for Broken Hope right now. Read the rest of this entry »

Thy Art Is Murder - Holy War - Artwork

Produced in secret this past winter Thy Art is Murder recorded their third studio album and second release with Nuclear Blast.  After the acclaim of Hate and the intense touring; the band is utilized the momentum to put together their most confronting release yet.  Of course this new album already has controversy buzzing around it, but Holy War is brutal, well executed deathcore that will most certainly get your blood and adrenaline pumping.In a sub genre, that has a tendency to lean towards monotony and repetition, Thy Art is Murder being the no fucks given Aussies that they are- always find a way to stand apart from the crowd and elevate their genre at the same time.

In This Moment live at Livewire (Scottsdale, AZ 06/23/15)

itm

Last time I saw In This Moment was a couple of years back at the old Martini Ranch in Scottsdale, AZ which was a street down from where Livewire is today, I remember being a good crowd that night, and an amazing show from the band. Forwarding to 2015, I decided to go to the Black Widow kickoff tour in Scottsdale, AZ last Tuesday night. I got to the venue around the time doors were opening (7:00pm) in order to avoid standing in line on a 100 degree weather (have in mind between the hours of 2pm & 5pm is where the temperatures tend to peak when you are in AZ). To my surprise when I arrive there still was a huge line that reached the end of the street, with more people getting added to it by the minute.  Read the rest of this entry »

Michael Romeo of Symphony X discussed the ideas behind Underworld

MR

New Jersey natives, Symphony X is coming back with a solid new record titled, Underworld. The album comes 4 years after their last discographic piece, Iconoclast (2011). Both of this records are similar on the way both of them push the musical style of the band forward, but they are different on ideals, sound, and pretty much everything else. Underworld, could potentially come across as more technical and at the same time melodic that evokes the band’s third album The Divine Wings Of Tragedy (1997). Read the rest of this entry »
