Mayhem Festival

This year is so bad I don’t want to talk about it. Cannibal Corpse and Wretched don’t make up for the other shit. Darkest Hour isn’t bad either, and that Erimha band is some decent black metal.

The Japanese bone crushers known as  Coffins is going on a small tour around northeast America!  Check this out and I highly recommend Coffins if you haven’t heard of them.  They’re fucking awesome!

Benighted - Carnivore Sublime (2014)

Released on Valentines Day via Season Of Mist, French brutal death metal badasses unleashed their 7th full length studio album. Their last album, Asylum Cave (2011) was absolutely crushing and intense. The first pic is the cd cover, and the second is the deluxe box image. The deluxe version comes with a bonus cd that contains 3 covers from Aborted, Rammstein, and Machine Head. It also has a bunch of live songs.

I wouldn’t pass this up if you like truly brutal music.

How do you expect this blog to become a go-to for news when it's fairly inactive (considering your goals mentioned day to day), and when Revolver provides a good source of news of possibly even more varied genres than what you provide?

Unexpected trip to the slammer causes problems. I’ve been staying active for 3 years and don’t plan on stopping.

And this isn’t supposed to be like Revolver. It’s more of a niche, and there’s bands they cover that I don’t want to. I’m more about heavier, more underground bands that you might not know about. I want to spread the word on good metal and have people support the music they listen to because they help someone else live their dream.

To the anon asking about why I rag on mainstream pop music

That’s a bit strong saying mainstream pop is only for girls. Lots of it is cookie cutter nonsense done a million times before, and a handful don’t even create the songs themselves. I can fully appreciate people like Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake because they’re multitalented entertainers and true performers. Katy Perry is very talented as well, as she writes melodies for her songs. Taylor Swift grinds my gears because she plays multiple instruments yet goes in circles with her lyrics because she’s a nutjob for a girlfriend.

Basically mainstream pop doesn’t impress me or stimulate my brain enough. Look at Lorde, she got a grammy for that Royals song. Honestly that shit isn’t even that good at all. Funky lyrics, and the best part of it is the 4 part harmony when she says “I’ll rule.” Other than that it’s rather lame. Pop music isn’t chosen, it’s fed to people. Metal bands aren’t fed, they must fight for fans and success. Hell even 50 Cent released 3 shitty albums and people still acknowledge him.
