Personal text: Apothecaries were the wise medicine men of ancient times, imparting knowledge about therapeutic and healing practices to physicians and doctors for their procedures. Following in their footsteps, I like to think of myself as Metal Storm's own apothecary, suggesting awesome music to generate positive, healing emotions. Metal is the best medicine!

Latest Staff pick


Horn Of The Rhino - Summoning Deliverance
Sludge ice cream, with death metal sprinkles
25.07.2014

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.
