“Heresy Breath” by Siberian

Mar 22nd, 2017 Song of the Week

Keeping it short & sweet this time around, my Song of the Week is going out to Siberian‘s “Heresy Breath” off of their sophomore album The Ages of Sleep released last month. There are so many great things about this album but I’ll only name a few. First of all, the album concept is an anthology of the band members’ dreams and their interpretations of them, leading to a…

“Kicking A Hornet’s Nest” by Iron Whip

Oct 18th, 2016 Song of the Week

Homies. I haven’t done a Song of the Week in forever but I’m here to start those up again. A much more condensed version though because I now prefer to let the simple act of me having selected the track as Song of the Week convince you that it’s, indeed, good shit. So let’s commence. What do I have for you this Metal Monday? How about some…

"Dragonaut" by Sleep

“Dragonaut” by Sleep

Jul 15th, 2016 Song of the Week

Song of the Week #36 Ladies and gentlemen, I have finally returned to give you Song of the Weeks on a more consistent basis. And it is my hope that you will discover something new with each track I choose to highlight. But for this week, I’m shining a spotlight on an oldie but dirty goodie. I hope you don’t mind. If anything, you’ll be reminded of how…

“Dark Ancients” by Burrows

Jun 1st, 2016 Song of the Week

Song of the Week #35 Happy June 1st, metalheads! I’m here with a hella-sick Song of the Week for your hearing pleasure. Hailing from good ol’ Connecticut, Burrows released an EP called Mar last fall and it definitely was an unfortunate oversight on my part. If you like your metal served up minimalistic and raw, you’re gonna want to check out this EP. The interesting thing is that I here…

"Set Course for Andromeda!!!" by Sithu Aye

“Set Course for Andromeda!!!” by Sithu Aye

May 14th, 2016 Song of the Week

Song of the Week #34 I definitely went through my intense prog metal phase back in the late 2000s with my everyday playlist consisting of Liquid Tension Experiment, Animals as Leaders and Demians. So it was a beautiful reminiscent surprise to listen to Sithu Aye‘s lasted double album, Set Course for Andromeda, and immediately fall in love with it. Sithu Aye is a young overly talented musician from Glasgow, UK…

“Tommy” by Grizzlor

Apr 30th, 2016 Song of the Week

Song of the Week #33 I’m gonna tell ya a story. Really quick. About how loud, obnoxious and insanely solid Grizzlor is. It’s been awhile since I’ve been this excited over a band and their well-defined sound. Grizzlor is best described as spastic burst of dirty sludge and quirky noise with sarcasm-filled vocals. Yeah. I like that. My Song of the Week is the 4th track off…

“Suffer the Last Bridge” by Oceans of Slumber

Mar 29th, 2016 Song of the Week

Song of the Week #32 When Ocean of Slumber dropped their title track from their upcoming album Winter as a teaser for what to expect, this girl here (ME!) was extremely impressed. I had a flashback of the days where all I would listen to were Netherland divas, Anneke van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering) and Floor Jansen (Nightwish). Which is saying a lot because there shouldn’t be one damn…

“Asexual Anger” by Love Sex Machine

Mar 23rd, 2016 Song of the Week

Song of the Week #31 Erotic Satanic Sludge hailing from France, Love Sex Machine has stolen my heart upon first listen. High-pitched screams of human meat plates, crispy fried penis, and cheese stuffed testicles (seriously these are their lyrics) over the most repetitively crushing guitar riffage and drum grooves are enough to make a grown man hungry and a grown woman… *Ahem*  excited.  My Song of the Week is their…
