Throwback: “My Dark Place Alone” from Murderdolls!

Hearing of the death of a hero and a legend is never easy and in Joey Jordison we lost a man who was the epitome of a Metal musician and a much loved human being. How much his suffering from acute Transverse myelitis, a neurological disease that causes inflammation of the spinal chord was a

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Sic.

The continuation of the longest running series upon these pages means it will soon surpass Sir Mo Farah’s average road race mileage and this time our we’re going for something heavier.

NEWS: VCTMS and Strangled cover Slipknot…!

For us, the first two Slipknot albums remain superior, the others as good as they are have always been Sour Knot or Slip Stone, perhaps tainted by the need for Corey Taylor to water them down with something from his Stone Sour side project. So to have a pair of Deathcore Beasts in VCTMS and

Bootleg: Slipknot in Sioux Falls, South Dakota!

Review: “Unnerved” by Break Fifty

Originally known as Hace, Guilford Nu-Metalcore outfit Break Fifty have been on our radar for quite some time. They started out in 2017 playing a hybrid blend of Hardcore influenced Nu-Metal, cutting their love of a breakdown with classic late 90s elements. In 2019 they dropped the single “Gods” which has clocked up 83k of

Under The Influence #82: Wyrmhaven on “Iowa” by Slipknot!

The 20th Anniversary of the sophomore album from Slipknot seems a highly appropriate time to talk about the record that takes its name from the bands home state of “Iowa“. Produced by Slipknot and Ross Robinson (Limp Bizkit, KoRn, Sepultura) and widely considered to be heavier, darker and more technical than their major label debut

NEWS: Avatar open “A Secret Door”!

Perhaps an obvious choice for a single with the slightly eerie whistle performed by Corey Taylor of Slipknot of fame during the opening of “A Secret Door”, Avatar have chosen one of the stand out cuts from “Hunter Gatherer” for the full music video treatment. It should be given a live airing during the bands pay per
