Review: “The Curse” by Snakeblade

Initially a one man Black Metal project with Power Metal leanings from Vancouver Canada masterminded by multi instrumentalist Mike Redston when last years debut album “The Kingdom” inspired by the fantasy of Lord of the Rings, The Witcher, Metal Gear Solid and Dungeons and Dragons surfaced, Snakeblade has begun an evolution into the realms of Blackened Thrash with

NEWS: God Syndrome play Amon Amarth!

Review: “Nightmare Eclipse” by Toxic Ruin

Hailing from Sheboygan Wisconsin, Toxic Ruin have been blasting Death infused Thrash Metal in an attempt to burst our ear drums since 2016 when they landed debut album  “Subterranean Terror” on us with a barrage of riffs and those old school Thrash lyrical themes and socio-political commentaries. That was followed in 2018 with an EP

Bootleg: Megadeth in Austin Texas!

Culled from the bands set in Austin Texas on the first night of their tour, here are a trio of classics in “Trust“, “Hanger 18” and personal favourite “Sweating Bullets” from Big Four Thrash Gods Megadeth.

Throwback: “Sweating Bullets” by Megadeth!

Riff Police! Pull Over! #155: Temtris Vs Megadeth!

There is no doubting that despite crawling out from under the weight of Metallica and all the controversy that has flown over him like a Vulture circling its prey that Dave Mustaine has done plenty right with Megadeth and served the Metal Gods well over the years. His legacy has plenty to offer despite the

Bootleg: “Poisonous Shadows” from Megadeth!

Proving that they aren’t resting on their laurels and playing just the older material from their much loved back catalogue, Big Four Thrash Gods Megadeth included “Poisonous Shadows” from their 2016 record “Dystopia” in their set at Bloodstock in 2017. Let’s face it, if there was one band who should grace the Ronnie James Dio
