Throwback: “The Price Of Reality” by Amen!

Known for a chaotic live show that had the potential for injury to be sustained at any point with frontman Casey Chaos leaping from pretty much any elevated object within reach, Amen are a band who have a reputation that far outweighs their commercial success. Four studio albums and a couple of rarities collections, multiple

Throwback: “Sweet Oblivion” by The Deadlights!

Back in the year 2000 Long Beach California Nu-Metal outfit The Deadlights were a regular on the second stage at the Ozzfest annual festival tour and appeared with the likes of Kittie, Disturbed, Slaves on Dope and Primer55, their self titled debut album landing via Elektra Entertainment the February before hand. Taking their name from

Throwback: “Numbers” by Legend!

Crunchy breakdowns and pummeling rhythmic battery are the stuff of Legend. A band who rose to prominence following a raw and brutally punishing 4 song demo that lead to their 2010 debut “Valediction“, which offers up the mind of Hardcore Vs Metal crossover that The Acacia Strain love to hear. Back in 2011, they were

Throwback: “Suffocate” by First Blood!

Back in 2006 a Hardcore band broke out of San Francisco with an album entitled “Killafornia” via Trustkill Records fronted by Carl Schwartz with numerous references and samples from the 1982 first chapter of the Rambo franchise. That band is First Blood. Something like 26 musicians have performed in the band since they started out

Throwback: “Carved Inside” by Soulfly!

Arguably the re-birth of Soulfly from more stripped back sound so a full on Metal onslaught thanks to the much more technical sounding riffs of Marc Rizzo and thunderous bass from Bobby Burns, “Dark Ages” saw the band resurgent in 2005. It remains to this day one of the bands darkest releases exploring aggression and

Throwback: “Over The Edge” by The Almighty!

Rewinding the cassette tape all the way back to 1993 and the third studio album “Powertrippin’” from Scottish Metallers The Almighty is an absolute must for this weeks throwback to the tracks of days gone by. The record saw the band support Iron Maiden across Europe and also spawned a Japanese only released live EP

Throwback: “The Craving” by Endast!

Following the news of the return of the much missed Endast with a new song “Standby to Get Some” and more on the way, it seems like a fitting time to go back and check out “The Craving” from the Metalcore quartets 2006 album “Odds Against Tomorrow“, complete with a music video directed by Bryan

Throwback: “The Grand Conjuration” from Opeth!

As our personal favourite Opeth album “Ghost Reveries” has reached the 15th Anniversary milestone it seems only right that we should celebrate with “The Grand Conjuration“. The Swedish Progressive Death Metallers eighth studio record and their first for Roadrunner Records was produced by Jens Bogren (Sepultura, Between The Buried And Me, Arch Enemy) and saw

Throwback: “Know Your Enemies” by Skinlab!

Masterminded by vocalist and bassist Steev Esquivel, Skinlab first came over our Metal Horizon in 1997 with debut album “Bound, Gagged And Blindfolded“. A Groove Metal quartet, often underrated and too quickly compared with Machine Head due to both bands hailing from the Bay Area, they have worked their way through numerous line up changes and

Throwback: “Bastardiser” from Pitchshifter!

As 14th September 1989 marked the inception of Nottingham Industrial Metallers Pitchshifter, we’ve decided to take a trip down the yellow brick road otherwise known as memory for a Skull Crusher coffee sponsored throwback. We’re going all the way back to their debut 7″ called “Death Industrial” for the brutal “Bastardiser“. Back then the band
