Blackened thrash metal from deep within Southern Ohio. Formed in 2009 in Laurelville, OH by Jacob and Luke Shively, Dismemberment formed a solid lineup in 2010 with the addition of JD Henderly on bass and Taylor Emerine on drums. The group recorded their first release, The Condemned EP, in the winter of 2010 at Paper Tiger Studios in Columbus, OH and released it independently on March 13th, 2011.
On September 19th, Swedish stronghold of aesthetic darkness Temple Of Torturous will release worldwide Fyrnask’s highly anticipated debut album, ‘Bluostar.’ Musically, Fyrnask’s ‘Bluostar’ can be best described as a combination of classic black metal rooted from the harsh landscapes of Northern Europe together with an eerie ambience which can be only witnessed in the darkest rites from primeval times. To quote a reference, “Fyrnask’s debut is a perfect mixture of Paysage D’hiver and Fauna!”
I recently caught up with Chris Reifert of the legendary death metal band Autopsy to discuss the group’s newest release, Macabre Eternal. After more than a decade off the grid the guys are back with a vengeance; Macabre Eternal is a no-nonsense, death metal record from the critically acclaimed masters of the genre. Here’s what Reifert had to say.
Following the announcement of their debut release on Tooth & Nail Records, Long Island’s Sainthood Reps have just premiered the title track to their new album, ‘Monoculture,’ out on August 9th, available to stream down below.
Well here we are again mere weeks after the end of another year. It’s the time of year when everybody and their brother compiles a list of the best and the worst of just about everything. I’ve always enjoyed these sorts of lists and this year I thought I’d try my hand at it as well. So as the title implies, the following albums were my absolute favorite releases of 2010.
I’m not sure what it is but there’s something about brothers in a rock and roll band that just seems to work oh so well. The examples are countless, Stone Temple Pilots, Kings of Leon, Chevelle and now Crash Kings. Formed out of Los Angeles in 2006, Crash Kings are the latest, greatest thing in alternative rock music. The core of the group consists of singer/keyboardist Tony Beliveau and his brother bass player Mike Beliveau with Jason Morris as the drummer.
