Nile – What Should Not be Unearthed (2015)

Nile - What Should Not Be Unearthed - Artwork

Nile is perpetual. I hope everyone in the metal community has realized this fact. Being not only one of the most distinguished but also influential bands and musicians in death metal, it’s easy to understand why this band is everlasting. Nile has proved their legacy again with What Should Not be Unearthed. I swear this band can’t ever release a bad album. Read the rest of this entry »

Kait & Dana of Ladies Of Metal discussed Mayhem Fest, Metal, and Modeling

LOM head

I came across with Ladies Of Metal a few years ago, and I been following their website ever since. It’s interesting to see how this community of spoke-models have supported a well number of metal bands and tours by either modeling their merch, hosting events, working their merch tables, being part of music videos, or just promotional shoots in general. Most recently they have been more visible on national events, like this year’s Mayhem Festival.

Graveworm – Ascending Hate (2015)

Graveworm 2015 coverart

Italy has never released a more chilling act than Graveworm. This iconic band recently released their new album Ascending Hate. While this album is a bit slow at times, it reminds us that Graveworm is back to conquer. But with the return of guitarist Stefan Unterpertinger there is no way for Graveworm to weaken. So let Graveworm take you on their morose journey through a world of lurking shadows and darkness. Let the music overtake you, and engulf you through their vile ways. Read the rest of this entry »

There’s also good A/C and big fans which are definitely a must for the hot summer shows here. Read the rest of this entry »

Skinless – Only the Ruthless Remain (2015)

Ruthless7

After ten years, us brutalers finally receive a genius album from Skinless! Not so much the soundclip and brutal-for-no-reason idea behind the classic Skinless sound – this band reinvented themselves, grew up enough to where the material is much more polished but regardless can still emerge with the most intense brutal death metal ever known! Only The Ruthless Remain is definitely a must for death metal fans to listen. Read the rest of this entry »

Sean & Kevin of Thy Art Is Murder talked about Holy War & Mayhem Fest 2015

S&K

Since the worldwide released of Hate in 2013, Thy Art Is Murder has become one of the single most respected acts in the metalcore scene. When the genre was falling into monotony, it was Thy Art Is Murder who brought a different tone to it, they injected life to it. I am personally not into the whole core scene, but even since I listen Hate in 2013 after the band signed with Nuclear Blast, they blew me away as their style is more technical and more complex that your regular metalcore band.  Read the rest of this entry »

Nile is the band that has always remained a monster, yet the beast unleashes more powerful with each album. With each passing legacy Nile creates a new definition of brutality that is insurmountable. How this iconic band still finds ways to challenge themselves is a mystery that is carved deep within the stones of time. All we know is this riot of death metal legends influenced a movement of unworldly extreme metal. Read the rest of this entry »

Marcos Leal of Shattered Sun discussed Hope Within Hatred & Mayhem Fest 2015

SS5

I became aware of Shattered Sun during the Testament/Exodus tour early this year, as they were the opening band. From that show I gather that had potential, and they sounded good live, they were (still are) their stage presence, and their happy and humble to be up on the stage. Once I listen their new album Hope Within Hatred, I knew they were something else – It wasn’t for nothing that they were hand-picked by Chuck Billy & Maria Ferrero to be one of the first new bands on their new managing company, Breaking Bands LLC– Now I definitely wanted to check them out at Mayhem Fest, even though I knew they would have a shorter set.

Matt Marinelli of Borealis discussed the ideas behind Purgatory

mm

What started 10 years ago as a symphonic female fronted band, that later developed into a more power/progressive style with the change of vocalists. It now sees their third album become a reality, after touring with the likes of Saxon, Edguy, and now with their upcoming tour with Evergrey, Borealis‘s status as one of the most promising bands in the genre is getting established.  Read the rest of this entry »
