by musclassia | 26.10
With Dark Tranquillity soon to be releasing album number 12 Moment upon the world in late November 2020, now seems as good a time as any to plug this clear gap in our Getting Into series, for an established and beloved band with a wide and varied discography.

by RaduP, Mr. Doctor, Apothecary | 22.10
For a genre as hard to get into as drone metal, it is surprising how much of a household name Sunn O))) have become. But the O)))-verse is large and includes a lot of sounds, experiments and a fair share of side projects. We hope to explore at least part of those in this three-part article series.

I've used the word "eclectic" in both of the previous intros, I'm using it right now (he's eclectic), and you'd better believe I'm going to use it in the main body of this article. We return once more to examine the most recently completed stretch of Devin Townsend's musical career: the 2010s.
Wait A Minute! This Isn't Metal! - September 2020
by RaduP, musclassia, Abattoir, Troy Killjoy | 12.10

That being said, we'd be lying if we stuck to our trve-kvlt guns and claimed that metal is the only thing we ever listen to. Whether we want to admit it or not, we do check out some other stuff from time to time; some of us are more poptimistic than others, but there's a whole world out there aside from Satan-worshiping black metal and dragon-slaying power metal.

Staff pick

Motörhead - Ace Of Spades

So this turned 40 years old this week... so pour yourself a pint of Jack & Coke and crank it up. (Didn't feel any additional text to pimp or promote the album was needed. Either you have it and love it or may the Ghost of Lemmy stalk you forever.)
