Exploration: The Kill – Kill Them… All (2015)

You may have noticed a general lack of grindcore around here. That's because I'm just not that into grind and the bands I do like I feel out of my wheelhouse when trying to dissect and discuss, but the aggressive... Continue Reading →

Thor – Metal Avenger (2015)

Jon Mikl Thor is endlessly entertaining and the fucking epitome of overlooked and under-appreciated. If you aren't familiar with the man and his namesake band Thor, there's an amazingly enduring and entertainingly bonkers documentary on Netflix called I am Thor chronicling... Continue Reading →

Tanagra – None of This is Real (2015)

On the metal forums and websites I frequent power metal rarely comes up so when it does (in a non mocking manner) I always take notice and read every word of the article or scour the forum thread looking for... Continue Reading →

This one was a blind listen. My buddy Ben shared it with me and I saw from the track listing that they do a Lunar Aurora cover and that immediately peaked my interest. Given that they cover Lunar Aurora perhaps... Continue Reading →

Grey Heaven Fall – Black Wisdom (2015)

2015 might have been the year I scoured through the most music. It was a phenomenal year for metal and jaw-dropping albums just came one after another, unrelentingly, month after month, week after week. Even then, Grey Heaven passed my... Continue Reading →

Cosmic Church – Vigilia EP (2015) & Abominor – Opus: Decay EP (2015)

Both of these bands both blew right by me in 2015 and now, all of a sudden, the keep seeming to pop up in videos I’ve been watching or articles I’ve been reading so it’s time I gave them both... Continue Reading →
