Review: Brutonomy – The Duality of Being

Review: Brutonomy – The Duality of Being

Brutonomy are a 5 man Australian outfit, this is their first EP release which came out in September 2015. The EP itself consists of 4 songs and just clocks in at just over 19 minutes. The music itself is brutal with some technicality entwined within. This pairs well with the drumming which has some blasts. The vocals tend to lean to a more straight up death metal feel, where you can audibly hear the lyrics.

Review: Abominant – Napalm Reign

Review: Abominant – Napalm Reign

Abominant is a death metal act from Kentucky, who offer us multiple styles of death metal and traditional metal in one album. The band has been around since the early 90’s and you can tell just by listening to their style of metal they perform. Moments of traditional metal vocals surface at times and threw me off quite a bit as they seemingly didn’t fit the music or even the vocals that were used in the song just before it. Abominant will then turn their guitars from kill to melodic,…

Top 6 Brutal Death Albums So Far…

Top 6 Brutal Death Albums So Far…

This here be the heaviest of the heavy. I love these albums and much much more but these are my favorite brutal death metal (and slam) albums of the year so far. These will blow your anus out and explode your head into a million bits. Then rats will consume your body as some wretched being comes from the darkness to fuck your prolapsed anus and gently kiss your stump of a neck. Sorry, this is brutal death metal and these are the lyrics I am dealing with here. It’ll…

Review: Blood Incantation – Starspawn

Review: Blood Incantation – Starspawn

I’ve noticed a trend lately. There are a lot of good bands coming out of the Colorado area, especially in Denver. Another thing I’ve noticed is Dark Descent Records is snatching up all of the good bands around the world. Like Blood Incantation’s debut album for instance. Starspawn is everything people have been loving for the past 2 decades within the death metal genre. Starspawn has an old school sound about it but then they sound like modern death¬†acts such as Chthe’ilist and Adversary. A hectic blend of technicality, aggression,…

Concert Review: Nile

Concert Review: Nile

On Thursday August 4th, 2016, A massive amount of bands from The Summer Slaughter tour came through Merriam, Kansas at The Aftershock bar. A smaller venue that has seen many big acts over the past 4 years. On this night, I was supposed to return to concert photography but the camera failed on me. So alas, I have no good photos from this night besides a few from my phone and my wife’s phone. So I apologize to Nuclear Blast for the lack of professional photography on this review. Continuing…

Concert Review: Rob Zombie & Korn – Return of the Dreads Tour

Concert Review: Rob Zombie & Korn – Return of the Dreads Tour

It was a miserably hot and humid night in Bonner Springs, Kansas at the Providence Amphitheater. The venue, formerly known as Sandstone, was filled to the brim even though the lawn section was closed off for the evening. I casually show up fashionably late after In This Moment played because they are a band I don’t really care for. So no review for them. Rob Zombie came on stage as the sun was setting to the West, and the lighting and production looked as amazing as always. Images of horror…

Review: Lord of War – Suffer

Review: Lord of War – Suffer

Lord of War is a 5 man band based out of southern California and are a deathcore act that emphasizes more on actual guitar riffs and solos than just simplistic chugging and breakdowns.
