Since it’s the weekend, finally, I tried some Wild Turkey “Longbranch” which is a collaboration between the ‘Turkey’ and Matthew McConaughey. My conclusion is: it’s just alright, alright, alright. Humor mileage will vary there and just to be clear, anytime is the right time for bourbon and not just the weekend. Anywho, so it’s been a couple weeks since the last playlist and I’m sure you missed it…right? Whether yay or nay, we’ve got another batch of tunes that have, in one way or another, struck a chord or made us reminisce or whatever we did with them. Subscribe to our YouTube channel here then head immediately below for a good Saturday jam session. AND if you feel particularly froggy, leave your own playlist picks in the comments. What did we miss? What’s scratched your itch? We must know.
January saw a TON of killer releases. In fact, early 2016 has me believing that this year might be the best overall year for metal releases that we have seen in some time. So today I decided to take a look back at January and mention nine releases that you may have missed but should absolutely take the time to get to know better. This should be a monthly piece moving forward. Each month I will recap nine releases from the prior month that were well wroth checking out. Obviously this list isn’t conclusive and it might not always just be THE BEST music. If it was merely the best music released Chthe’ilist’s debut Le Dernier Crépusculewould be above and away the #1. The idea is to present music that flew somewhat under the radar in relation to how simply great it is. Continue reading →
Just over a week ago Jeremiah reviewed Conan‘s latest album Revengeance (here) and last week Napalm Records released the video for “Throne of Fire” which we are all too happy to showcase in this edition of Visions ov Hell. As Jeremiah pointed out, this album marks a step up in songwriting; which is a plus because had they simply made a part two of their last album it would have been heavy and dense but overall nothing new. This track is one of the faster picks, yet still retains all the guts and punch the band is known for. So make your Monday better and dive in. Continue reading →
Conan the Cimmerian began his tale in 1932 when Robert E. Howard wrote him into existence. Pulp Magazine Weird Tales published the early stories of a sullen, blue-eyed fighter that was literally born on the field of battle. He was a celebrated warrior by the time he was fifteen, and later made himself ruler of Aquilonia by strangling its tyrannical ruler Numedides on the steps of his own throne. Conan was at times a pirate, mercenary, thief, and always an adventurer. He came to be known as the Barbarian, the Destroyer. Continue reading →

So let’s not waste any more time discussing. Here’s what’s on tap for Friday, January 29: Continue reading →
