AZTEC DEATH from Dallas, Texas play a type of dark postpunk that might sound familiar to fans of Warsaw or the earlier days of Joy Division and the postpunk phases of classic bands like UK’s The Blitz (Second Empire Justice) or the USA’s The Proletariat (in their Indifference LP era).

For now and forever, Siouxsie and the Banshees will have a special place in my musical universe. Not only has this band made some of my favorite music, but they have also written words that have painted my imagination with vivid colors. As a front person, Siouxsie Sioux has always

THE HEIGHT OF GOTH: 1984: A Night at the Xclusiv Nightclub is a glimpse into a scene that was not documented the way it should have been. What I love about this film is that it is about the everyday people that loved Goth in the early 80’s and say it

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

Yesterday, we fed the ghouls by sharing the Misfits Early Years documentary, and now it’s time to share with you Samhain Know the Pain documentary. I love the all of the footage from the beginning of their career. Honestly, this band can do no wrong in my book – every release is

Release the Bats, the DIY Melbourne label Lost in Fog is at it again. Their second release is a driving and catchy cassette by Indonesia’s EERIE and I love every second of it! This band knows how to balance ghostly atmosphere with hard hitting rhythm that will hold your attention for sure! We

To many, Fields of the Nephilim were looked at as being the little brothers of Sisters Of Mercy, but in all honesty this band created some kick ass songs in their own right. Check this rad full set of them performing in Düsseldorf, Germany on 31.03.1991 – from this performance

SIX – SAVAGE BLIND GOD Demo Okay, so this demo floored me. It’s so evil and filthy, so twisted and disturbed. I went into it being told it was blackened punk, but honestly this is way more deathrock than blackened punk. The main influence is very obvious: Rudimentary Peni. However,

It’s been three years since we heard the ancient maw of KILLING JOKE open up to unload another guttural roar, but at long last, here it is. Killing Joke’s Pylon is all over the map, pulling from almost every genre the band has explored over their past 15 albums and 37

How long has The Cure been a part of my life? Due to a crush I had on a young woman when I was 14, somehow I found myself at the Kabuki Theater in SF in 1983 watching them perform. She and I never dated, but I got to see now what is
