Metal Storm Awards - Voting Closed 01.03

Last year we celebrated the 10th edition of the Metal Storm Awards, and earlier this year we observed the Awards' 10th anniversary with its own special competition. Now, finally, the 2014 Awards have come to a close. Countless bands and users alike have come and gone in those years, but the spirit of the Awards has remained the same; as we like to say, it's not about who wins and loses, but about discovering new bands. While this year's Awards had a smaller voter turnout than the previous couple, 2014 still had its fair share of friendly competition. (by BitterCOld)   Read more ››

Pantera - Dimebag Darrell's Grave Vandalized 01.03

The grave of "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott from Pantera has been hit by a vandal. According to the band, it was the work of a musician who boasted about defacing Abbott's final resting place at the Moore Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Arlington, Texas. However, the band (Nuclear Hellfrost) being accused of this act have denied any involvement with what they label a hoax put on by their former lead singer completely disconnected from the other members of the band. Reece Eber, their former singer, has admitted he vandalized Dimebag's grave. (by Maco)   Read more ››

Nader Sadek - All Line-Up Quits 01.03

Almost everyone has left Nader Sadek, all but Nader Sadek, its artistic director. Travis Ryan, Martin Rygiel, Flo Mounier, and Rune Eriksen no longer wish to be associated with Nader Sadek and his project. According to them, the ongoing drama has intensified to a point where they have decided to focus their time on their other projects. (by Bad English)   Read more ››
Amaranthe - Tapper, Tallinn, Estonia, 10.02.2015 21.02

I am usually genuinely surprised when some bands come to revisit my little country in a fairly short while, say a couple of years. For them to be back in just half a year is a pretty significant achievement, especially for something as popular as Amaranthe. Well, the new album has been released between then and now, and maybe not everybody could make it to the show in Haapsalu. Given the warm reception there, it is fairly logical for the band to take to the stage here in such a short while. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Cannibal Corpse + Behemoth + Aeon - The Fillmore, San Francisco, USA - 8 February 2015 17.02

Back at The Fillmore - this time 8bitglitch and I were hunkered down for some death metal. Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth play with Aeon and Tribulation. I haven't had the occasion to see many bands more than once so two repeats tonight was a real treat, having seen Aeon and Cannibal Corpse at Summer Slaughters 2013 and 2012, respectively. The strange doppelganger of my ex was in the crowd as usual, so we were ready to begin! (by Susan, 8bitglitch)   Read more ››

Edge Of Attack - Edge Of Attack (2013)

Here is a cleanly classic yet modern metal debut. From the frigid lands of northern Alberta, Canada, comes Edge Of Attack: 5 young musicians with metal to spare. Let's call it "speed metal infused U.S. power metal with special attention to melody and atmosphere." Simple enough? No? Tough. (by Susan)   Read more ››
