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

Blood Of The Black Owl - A Banishing Ritual
Sioux Drone

The one man project of Chet W. Scott, Blood Of The Black Owl is a hypnotizing journey through foreboding sounds and monolithic landscapes. Native American themes abound, with use of wind flute and some drony, chant-like vocals to help heighten the vibe and make you feel as though you're being banished by the ritual of the album's title. This album may be four years old, but screw it: if you're down with the whole drone/dark ambient nonsense, this is definitely one you need in your life.

Begin the daze.
