@CMJ Interview with Human Furnace from Ringworm @rngwrm13; New Album Hammer Of The Witch on @relapserecords slated for 2014!

Cleveland, Ohio’s Ringworm is one of the most chaotic hardcore metal bands on the market, and has been since their beginnings in 1991. All gaps in their performance history aside, the Relapse Records act continues to punish and pummel the eardrums and senses of their listeners with their trademark aural assault. There’s just something about […]

Interview with Joel Grind from Toxic Holocaust; Chemistry of Consciousness out NOW @TOXICHOLOCAUST @RELAPSERECORDS

Portland, Oregon. While it probably reminds some of hi-end coffee shops, hippie-hipsters, and legal weed, my main interest in the state comes by way of a qualtity little trio called Toxic Holocaust. Consisting of Joel Grind, Nicholas T. Rage, and Phil Gnaast, these thrash-punk-metal warriors have been decimating audiences and eardrums since 1999 with so […]

Interview with JR and Blake from Pig Destroyer; Playing HOUSECORE HORROR FEST! @pigdestroyer @basilicafest

I don’t know about you, but I jumped for joy when I heard that  Pig Destroyer’s latest effort, Book Burner, charted on Billboard’s Top 200. I can’t say whether it was seeing such an extreme form of music garnering this type of attention, or thinking about the absolute horror a typical Pop music fan (Billboard’s […]

Interview with Trey from DYING FETUS; Reign Supreme (Relapse Records) in stores! @dyingfetusband @relapserecords

Death Metal has been around for quite a while now. I can recall practicing with my Ska band in some crack house on the Northside of Syracuse that must have had 20 death metal bands rehearsing, squatting, or otherwise growling over distorted guitars at any given time. It was pretty fun!

Interview with Blake Harrison from PIG DESTROYER (@pigdestroyer); Playing CMJ 10/18

And now for one of the most intense bands I’ve ever encountered. I don’t know where some people get the ideas or ambition to write this stuff, but I’m sure glad bands like Pig Destroyer are out there. Tantamount to sonic genocide, this 4-piece Baltimore/DC based grindcore group is one of the spazziest, heaviest, and […]
