Another year, another Summer Slaughter! Always a highlight for me.

This was the 10th Anniversary so of course it was going to be amazing. Right? Well... it was not the best year ever but still a successful night. (by Susan)   Read more ››

Revocation 18.08

The Summer Slaughter Tour rocked its way across the United States yet again, and I had the pleasure of speaking with the awesome guys from Revocation before their set. There are many nice and cool musicians out there playing metal, but few bands are as instantly likeable, easy-going, and fun as Revocation. When we weren't talking about dildos or farting, we actually got down to some business. Here are some of those more business-related highlights from our chat: Susan: The new album seems pretty well received. What were you guys hoping to accomplish with it? (by Susan)   Read more ››
Nile 07.08

Skyforger 22.07

Bad English: This may be a weird question, but how do you envision the Latvian metal scene if bands such as Skyforger and Heaven Grey had never existed? Peter Kvetkovskis: Well, there was always and still is another bands around - the metal scene here is quite big enough even without Skyforger or Heaven Grey. The question is how unique and original those bands are, but that's another topic to talk about I guess. It is very hard to make your name worldwide if you are from such a small far away country like Latvia is. You must be somehow original to stand out from millions of bands playing...

Disgorge (MEX) - Gore Blessed To The Worms (2006)

Disgorge used to be one of the few bands that literally gave me the creeps; I remember feeling drowned in the most disgusting and sickest experience back in those "Chronic Corpora/Forensick" days, then "Necroholocaust" came and gore gore days were over, but good good days came instead. "Gore Blessed To The Worms" is the word vicious in disguise; this album shows an incredibly solid band with astonishing music and battering brutality that will liquefy your entire body...
