Yep, 10.31. HALLOWEEN. The best day of the year. So, in light of this, we bring you our spooky edition or gore edition or occult edition, all depends on what video is playing at the time. Brother Vince made the call for spooooooooky videos and I was over here with zero power or internet so in lieu of putting him on the last minute spot, you got me. So, what horrors are in store? What wicked tricks do we have? I bring some wicked death metal, King Diamond and Axeslasher, Jon brings some Devin Townsend, Angela brings Ghost B.C. and Misfits (topical, I might add), Ian brings The Mountain Goats (no surprise) and Pallbearer, and Hera brings some Zeal & Ardor. And, we close with two HITS from Two Minutes To Late Night and even though it’s not Christmas, both of these are still tailor made for today, you’ll see. Hit play and go scare up some good times somewhere or just hang in and sync this up with an old favorite horror movie. Either way, enjoy and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
2020 is, and has been, a dumpster fire of epic proportions—this is not news. All I can say is; ya’ll stay safe and stay well. Now, new metal time so let’s conjure up some actual good stuff, shall we? The best sludge band on the planet, 16, is back for another all killer, no filler eighth full length. These guys can do no wrong and for as long as they’ve been excellent at what they do, they just get better and better. Kult Mogił offers up a lightning rod of classic strained death metal full of speed and adrenaline that will raise the heart rate inside of its first twenty seconds, and Exhumed & Gruesome team up for a blood spraying, neck whipping, ass kicking split release from two different spectrums of death metal—two for one type of deal. Well, what are you waiting for? It all awaits, below. Continue reading →
Welcome to another edition of our weekly mixtape. This time around, we’ve got the Two Minutes to Late Night crew (featuring members of Spirit Adrift, Mutoid Man, and High on Fire among others) delivering a rocking Steely Dan cover, new Gruesome, some more Ulcerate because seriously this album is going to blow your mind, and much more down at the link below. Thanks for stopping by.
The guys are back from MDF 2016 and ready to recap all of their shenanigans on this special Maryland Deathcast! To do that, they walk through all four days of the festival and highlight their favorite sets (including Dragged Into Sunlight, Horrendous, Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin and more), then share some field recordings they gathered with Corey’s fancy new mic on Sunday. Plus, as always, a Heaven and Hell portion.
All that and…not all that much more in Episode 44, but check it out anyway!
Guys. GUYS. We’ve got less than a week ’til MDF. If I sound like a broken record right now…fuck you, I don’t particularly care. I’m JACKED for this thing.
But until then, we’ve got quite a bit of new metal to hold us over. Like, oh, I don’t know…new Katatonia, for starters? The Swedes are back with album number ten, The Fall of Hearts, which you can bet your asses Mr. Butterworth and I are psyched for. (Check out his review after the jump if you don’t believe me.) We’ve also got a new EP from OSDM worshippers Gruesome — who, oh yeah, will also be all about that MDF life next week. Tons more in the queue, so let’s not waste any more time. Here’s what’s on tap for this week: Continue reading →
