I just read SF Weekly’s interview with Kristina Esfandiari, singer for King Woman, a band I was immediately in love with after hearing their Flenser Records debut EP Doubt. Even the name “King Woman” spoke to me as a statement of power and equality for women in metal, and in

Mazurka Editions caters to tasteful stagnation. The Australian tape label has released Pleasure Island, V. Sinclair and Purity of Essence that all connote its “Post Industrial Malaise.” Jarrod Skene, the artist behind Mazurka Editions, can’t quite articulate what all this is after. I really couldn’t say that there’s intent to produce

Since this band dropped into my life last year, they’ve been on constant rotation. With the heaviness of Neurosis and other like-minded projects, injected with the emotional weight of Ebullition-era styled hardcore, HUSH are without a doubt dwelling in the shadows of extreme metal, ready to pounce upon our collective

When I was almost 1 year old, the world had not yet entered the MTV era. Music television was mostly restricted to underground cable shows. One such show, Night Flight, debuted a couple of months before MTV did, and offered two 4 hour shows between 11PM and 7AM – the same

Malaise is a French word meaning discomfort, uneasiness, the sensation of being physically disturbed from something.
