MAGRUDERGRIND only have a couple more dates left in their massive US tour, and we were lucky enough to capture their raging Vancouver show on film! These guys destroyed The Astoria alongside Yautja, Ogroem and Witchdr, and if you are able to see them on their last few dates we highly

Troller got darker. The Austin-based trio dropped the Katatonia model of their debut for Graphic’s BDSM. It’s a better look. Troller’s (2012) lack of purported heavy metal was disappointing. At it’s best, Graphic is like happening on a snuff film in an old video store, but too often Troller is

Summer is upon us, and sadly that means that fans of punk, hardcore, metal, and everything inbetween will be forced to see pictures on social media of your cousin wearing some ridiculous outfit in a field somewhere at some shitty festival. It’s an unfortunate reality; more and more people are

SALEM’S POT is one of those bands we’ve had our eye on ever since Dan over at Riding Easy put them on our radar. For the past few weeks, we’ve been digging into their new album, Pronounce This!, and these psychedelic doom mongers didn’t disappoint us with this weird trip,

Unholy fuck, check out this brand new VASTATION track, but beware, it will RIP YOU UP. Vastation are despondent and rad as fuck stench-crust overlords from Portland, OR (formerly known as Night Nurse) and their incendiary fusion of crust punk and metal is not to be fucked with.

There’s a reason I always refer to the original deathrock phenomenon as a musical movement from the southwestern US, and not just a Southern California thing, which is how it’s treated by many writers. Granted, the movement is primarily associated with, and fundamentally indebted to, foundational bands from the LA

I remember the first day I got my hands on OZ’s Fire In the Brain on vinyl; I bought it from Wax Traxx in Denver. I would just stare at the cover for hours because I loved the art so much! I get the same sort of feeling when I
