live show


They came, they played, they destroyed! Poland’s Black/Death Metal conquerors Behemoth, invaded Tampa’s The Orpheum as headliners of the 2012 Decibel Magazine Tour. From opener “Ov Fire and the Void” to closer “Lucifer” they simply dominated the night and the audience didn’t have any other choice than surrender to the larger-than-life personality of guitarist and vocalist Nergal. Definitively one of the best live shows of the year so far. A night to remember for the ages to come.

Recently I recently had the opportunity to speak with Masaki Murashita, guitarist and vocalist for the Arizona-based extreme metal band, Hemoptysis. Their latest release, Misanthropic Slaughter, has garnered the band critical acclaim from press around the globe and with their recent signing to Rock It Up/IceWarrior Records Hemoptysis is poised to make their mark on the metal world. Here’s what Murashita had to say.

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Wretched, vocalist for the horror punk band Grave Robber. Dressed in zombie costumes that look like they’ve been lifted from a B horror movie, these dudes put on one heck of a show. However if you peel away the costumes and over-the-top stage show, what remains is a collection of good, fun-to-listen-to, punk tunes. Here’s what Wretched had to say.
