Horn Of The Rhino - Summoning Deliverance
Sludge ice cream, with death metal sprinkles

These Spanish conquistadors are back in action. Continuing in the direction of Grengus, Summoning Deliverance is Horn Of The Rhino at perhaps their most violent yet. Gone are the days of the more relaxed vibes of their earlier material, in favor of some fast and nasty sludge, with a much more snarling type of vocal delivery from Javier Galvez, all wrapped up with some pleasantly surprising extreme metal elements. Crushing in every sense of the word.

Listen on Bandcamp, and cry to yourself over the label deciding that only streaming select tracks would be a good idea.

Desert Age: Documentary On Desert Rock 26.07

So as some of you astute MSers might have noticed I've (temporarily) abandoned the desert of southern Arizona to go into hiding in the lush jungles of Paraguay. Thrown in to a land where virtually no one speaks English, the beer is watery lager, and there is no hot sauce? (WTF?!) Though the peeps are swell and the meat is PLENTIFUL, I've grown a tad homesick for the scorching, oven-like dry heat of the Southwest. And suddenly I get an email in my inbox... lo! behold! A reminder of home. Well, at least close to home. A work in progress documentary on the California Desert Rock phenomenon.... (by BitterCOld)   Read more ››

Agalloch - Gothic Theatre, Englewood, USA - 8 Jul 2014 13.07

I was out of town two years ago when Agalloch played in Denver the last time, so when I first saw that they were scheduled to play at the Gothic Theatre in Englewood, CO (a suburb of Denver) I was actually rather surprised. Are they really that big? Would the thousand plus capacity venue be largely empty? (by D.T. Metal)   Read more ››

Killer Be Killed - Killer Be Killed (2014)

If bands like Adrenaline Mob, Symfonia, Audioslave, and any of the 300 Anthrax-based supergroups have taught us anything, it's that incredible collaborations have a disappointingly high rate of failure. Fortunately, there are plenty of examples to the contrary, and Killer Be Killed is one of them. (by ScreamingSteelUS)   Read more ››
