“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…

"Vesuvius" by Ape Cave

“Vesuvius” by Ape Cave

Jan 30th, 2016 Song of the Week

Song of the Week #26 Portland sludge apprentices, Ape Cave, self-released their debut LP, Pillars of Evolution, this month and all I can think about is how intelligently and consistently heavy this album is. This band has only been together for 1 year and having only released an EP Primoridum prior to this, they show incredible musicianship and progress. My Song of the Week is their starter track, “Vesuvius”, and it has…

"Desperation Burns" by Baroness

“Desperation Burns” by Baroness

Jan 23rd, 2016 Song of the Week

Song of the Week #25 Baroness are back with their fourth full-length album called “Purple” (keeping the rainbow theme of their album titles alive and well) and it’s reception has been overwhelmingly positive. Having followed these Savannah natives from their beginnings, I couldn’t help but notice how they’ve become more polished in every aspect of their music. Their harsh progressive sound is bit cleaner these…

My Most Popular YouTube Video!

Aug 22nd, 2015 My Youtube

Good morning, metalheads! As I prepare to hit the ground running with Metal&Coffee, I was thinking back to my most popular YouTube video. I actually cringe when I watch this now, haha. It’s over 3 years old and it’s such bad quality. But I distinctly remember having a lot of honest fun putting it together. I’m actually thinking about remaking this video so I can…

#SongOfTheWeek The Ocean - Abyssopelagic II: Signals of Anxiety

“Abyssopelagic II: Signals of Anxiety” by The Ocean

Aug 4th, 2015 Song of the Week

Pelagial was the first album I listened to by The Ocean and being the emotional masterpiece that it is, it’s an album that I can’t help but return to time and time again. These Berlin metalheads have been consistently keeping up their fine reputation for being a solid progressive metal band by continuously creating albums that are centered around intriguing concepts. Having worked my way…
