Interview with Brian from Downset; Playing @TIHCFEST; One Blood drops this Summer @downsetla

West Coast Hip Hop over grooved out, crunchy Hardcore riffs?!

Interview with Paul from Cannibal Corpse @corpseofficial; Playing @Mayhemfest and 13th album coming soon!

Cannibal Corpse. You’ve undoubtedly been exposed to Cannibal Corpse in some form or another. Jim Carrey is a total fan. The (thankfully) defunct PMRC were decidedly not. But no matter… Next only to chicken wings, Cannibal Corpse is the best thing to ever come out of Buffalo, NY. One of Metal Blade Records’ finest acts, […]

Riverside, California Death Metal band Suicide Silence is gearing up for a wild Summer.

Interview with Jmann from Mushroomhead; Playing @ROCKSTARENERGY @MAYHEMFEST @FILTHYHANDSCO

Cleveland, Ohio’s Mushroomhead are a roving mob of a band. Just dropping The Righteous and The Butterfly, on Megaforce Records, their 8th and latest release is yet another theatrically metallic album, and definitely not something you can easily fit into a particular musical category. The ebb and flow of the tracks remain consistent, but this […]

Interview with Daisy from FOXY SHAZAM; New album GONZO out now and touring!!! @FOXYSHAZAM

Very recently, Cincinnati, Ohio’s sextet Foxy Shazam dropped their latest album, GONZO, for free and on the total sly.
