Candy and music (metal), dinner and music (metal)…the pairings are endless. And yes, you’re welcome for those ideas. Anyway, it’s Monday which means another playlist of what we were over the moon about last week. It also means the time is now for that gallon of coffee, but I digress…subscribe to our YouTube channel here so you never miss a thing then head inside for a loud, eclectic and great bunch of tunes.

Initial Descent: February 4 – 10, 2018

Netherlands
Netherlands

Another weekend, another relief. It’s been a long and I mean LONG week but finally it’s time to kick those feet up and let the rough side drag. And you better believe I’m letting it drag whilst listening to all this week has to offer and HEY, you should be too. Kicking things off is the ultimate good time, off-kilter and absolutely outstanding Netherlands with their new EP Hope Porn — hit up “Rewild!” and let your worries melt away. Next up is The Atlas Moth with Coma Noir and I’m telling you now, this band has never sounded better, progressive sludge at its finest. Following that is Under the Mountain by King Witch and I dare you to find a better song than “Ancients” — the 70’s swing and classic rock vibes just drip from every note here. And closing the top slots this week is Fu Manchu with Clone of the Universe and honestly their brand of desert rock hasn’t sounded this good since the days of “Weird Beard.” Look that up and get back to me. So, another fantastic start but we are long from being done. Jump in and have fun, that’s what it’s all about. Continue reading

Happy Monday everyone. It’s currently Sunday afternoon here in sunny Portsmouth and Josh and I are starting to get ourselves together for the Neurosis/Converge/Amenra show down in Boston tonight. So, I’m going to make this pretty efficient for you today because 1. There’s shit we need to do in a little while and 2. I’m slightly hungover and don’t have a ton to say. A brand new edition of our playlist is available for your listening pleasure below. Miss a playlist from either of the past two weeks? Fret not, you can check out all the playlists on our YouTube channel. That’s it from me. Have a good week! Continue reading

    • Leading off, Rammstein‘s Friday evening set at the Rock Am Ring festival was cancelled as the festival was forced to evacuate due to concerns over a possible terrorism threat. Thankfully, nothing came of the threat and the festival was able to resume the next day.
