Master is one of the most legendary death metal bands in existence, and even after over thirty years, this band is still going strong. Master was touring the United States in support of their newest album An Epiphany of Hate, and conveniently made a stop at the Full Terror Assault festival in Cave-In-Rock, Illinois. I’ve …

Full Terror Assault Review – Day 1

Day 1 of the festival was very interesting. And that’s because most of the day was driving to the location, and getting lost on the drive. Here’s some background on the festival: Full Terror Assault is taken place in Cave-In-Rock, Illinois. This little town is in the area of Illinois that borders the states of …

Jason Keyser of Origin discussed Full Terror Assault Open-Air

Full Terror Assault is on its second year of gathering the most extreme acts in metal, and putting them in the middle of the woods. So what better band to include in this unorthodox line-up than Origin? No one can deny that Origin made their legacy on their inhuman technicality, while combining the perfect amount …

Sodom – Decision Day (2016)

Sodom has unleashed a new beast. Their new album Decision Day introduces a new demon to the larger picture, but it’s still hell that Sodom describes. They use Sodom’s trademark thrash velocity, but at times it’s diminished by a combination of melody and groove. Overall, this is by far the most unique Sodom album. While …

Jay Evans of Ingested discussed new music at Summer Slaughter Tour

One of the bands I was looking most forward to seeing at Summer Slaughter was Ingested. This is a modern death metal band I grew to appreciate, and I only heard great things about their live set. It was their first time playing in Tampa, so this show was gargantuan for them. And even as …

Ivar Bjornson of Enslaved discussed new music & Hellfest 2016

Enslaved was one of the bands I was looking forward to seeing because they’re such a legendary band who raised the bar for black metal. After shooting my one song, I had to stay back and watch. When people think of Viking metal or folk metal, they think more on the melodic side, and I’m …

Victor Brandt of Entombed A.D. discussed Hellfest & Beer

Entombed A.D. was one of the most amazing bands who played at Hellfest. This is one of the bands I’ve been excited about since their influence on the metal scene is the strongest today than it has ever been. My first time seeing them was when they played in Tampa, supporting Amon Amarth. Use Facebook …

Entrails talked to The Age of Metal at Hellfest 2016

Out of all of the bands who played at Hellfest, Entrails is one of the ones who conquered. I would even argue they were the most brutal band in the whole festival. With a ruthless set that includes plenty of headbanging and moshing, these Swedish death metal titans made a lot of extreme metal fans …
