As winter begins to rear its icy head in the Northern Hemisphere, the mythologically-inspired, blackened-doom quartet hailing from Bloomington, Indiana known as THORR-AXE have announced the arrival of their sophomore album, Gates Of Winter: January 13, 2015.
New Orleans rulers of the riff, EYEHATEGOD, will return to Australia for a short but riotous run of live devastation next year. Slated to commence on January 29th, the band will take over Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Speakers will be blown; souls will be broken; lives will be changed forever. A few months later, EYEHATEGOD will pillage their way through Tilburg, The Netherlands for the 2015 edition of Roadburn where they’ll punish ears with two sets of gristly Southern, hardcore blues debauchery on April 9th and 10th.

Tyranny Enthroned, a band that surprised me with a brand new record and has easily become one of my favorites of this year. The St. Louis band has become more than just ‘that local band from down the road’ to me now. I saw them open for Nile last year and now with a new album and video on the way, these guys are looking more and more professional and mastering their sound along the way to make it all crushingly real. “Our Great Undoing” is a perfect starting point for this band as they head down the path of metal righteousness. With a comfortable sound that resonates Gorguts’ progressive stylings, some destructive melodic riffing here and there with an overall massively aggressive death metal approach, Tyranny Enthroned prove to us that they are here to slay us all with their new album.
BlizzCon, the Blizzard convention (duh) that showcases everything you could possibly want to fan boy over with their series of games. Starcraft, Warcraft, Diablo and more!

The “Blizzcon Virtual Ticket” will allow you to view the concert, as well as the entire weekend event, from the comfort and judgement free area of your computer desk. More info below!
