I recently watched the must-see documentary DEAD HANDS DIG DEEP (written by  Spencer Heath and Jai Love, and directed by Jai Love) that was about one of America’s most fucked in the head bands that goes by the name of KETTLE CADAVER. Their frontman, Edwin Borsheim, inflicted harm on himself that made GG Allin seem like a wimp

It wasn’t long ago when I had reviewed Sacrocurse’s demo for another zine. After releasing their debut full-length album, Unholier Master, for Hell’s Headbangers Records, they have once more struck down hordes of Five Finger Death Punch fans in the faces with their latest offering, Destroying Chapels. Destroying Chapels is

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

Text and Photos: Colton Bills I knew that Black Breath was a thrash band, but I had no idea about Hopeleus, Waingro and Burning Ghats. I usually listen to the opening band/bands a few times before the show, and let the live experience be my first real introduction to the

It’s Fucking On! Relapse Records is re-releasing the underground classic by OPPROBRIUM (formerly known as Incubus) entitled Serpent Temptation. When I hear music this raging, it takes me back in time to when denim vest and hi tops were king. Every tune on this album is a straight banger – there is no filler

“I never thought I’d die in Texas.” This was the last thing that went through my mind before my friend Brett assured me that he was “fine” to drive after taking eight klonopins. Let me back up; recently, my roommate (his name is Chris, in case you care) and I

Well, it’s official – I have been sent the most crucial demo of 2015. Rampaging all the way from the UK, The Lightning Dudes have graced humanity with the kind of tunes that only shitty pornos and cheap gin coincide with. You’ve heard the phrase “these guys don’t give a fuck!” probably

Growing up in the 80’s SoCal hardcore scene meant that you hated metal heads, and until the mid 80’s, that is exactly what we did! L.A. metal heads were lame for the most part, because they were all into cheesy fucking hair metal which lacked any power. Our views on

Three awesome dudes from the Oakland-based grindcore band Infinite Waste (namely madmen Jamison, Kevin, and Matt) were rad enough to have the brilliant idea to put together a compilation of Bay Area-based bands to give out for free at this year’s first edition of California Deathfest this weekend in Oakland, to show visitors and outsiders attending
