Bands don’t have to play intensely melodic, structured music to win over underground fans. While it’s true that underground metal is typically known for violent, frantic, frenetic play, the performances on tap must be just as stellar as it is nuanced – breaking barriers, defying stereotypes, and all while producing music with

Racism is never a joke…Phil Anselmo, you straight fucking played yourself in the eyes of so many, and CVLT Nation will never support you in any way or form. I have been an active part of the underground music community since the early 80s, and I have never made the

CRAOW is on the move. Sean Halpin’s music reaches a new plane of throbbing electronics. The gripping industrial/noise label, Nostilevo, is to release his self-titled album. I might’ve walked out on CRAOW before. Halpin’s Difference Between the Days could’ve been background music, even when it fluttered and shook. CRAOW’s Nostilevo

Robert Smith would tell you he would still be wearing trenchcoats, trying to learn Hendrix songs if he hadn’t heard Low, which Smith calls the greatest album ever made. He also an claims it had more of an impact on him than any other album. A 14-year-old Siouxsie Sioux saw

Unhinged fury, unique sonic rage, mind-altering audio twists enclosed in demented freedom are just some of the things that come to my mind as I listen to the new SPEKTR LP entitled The Art to Disappear. Over the course of 9 tracks, this band creates music that leaps over all boundaries

Many heads that grew up in the early 80’s scene started to have a more open mind when it came to music by the mid 80’s. A big part of this was the label SST, because they were putting out bands that were brave enough to go against the status

TEN – TETRAGRAMMACIDE  Typhonian Wormholes: Indecipherable Anti​-​Structural Formulæ Forget music. Forget anything that resembles it. Now try to imagine the incomprehensible: the complete disintegration of all matter; unit by unit, piece by piece, cell by cell. Much like what takes place in the center of a black hole, the actual experience

TEN – TRIBULATION The Children of the Night Tribulation are a Swedish band, and The Children Of The Night is their third studio full-length. I already wrote a lot about the band’s backstory and their evolution, and you can find that here. In that same space, I said that The Children Of The Night was

FOUR – THE BODY & KRIEG Chip King’s hated bark and Jameson’s diabolical screeches are both here together as clear and familiar sounding as ever, and while The Body have opted for a more industrial/noise approach here in the instrumental compartment (similarly as done on their collaboration with The Haxan

Six – UFOMAMMUT – Eecate 1999 seems like millennia ago. That was the year the “space mammoth” was conceived in the quiet hill town of Tortona, Piedmont, Northern Italy.

EIGHT – BLACK WING – …Is Doomed At its core, …Is Doomed is essentially a concept album dealing with a summer Dan Barrett was deathly ill. If Dan Barrett is Black Wing and this is the subject matter, the symbolism behind the album’s title, track names, and artwork become pretty obvious. With this in
