Most of July was spent in transit, so my tastes might be skewed towards albums that sound good turned up loud while flying down the freeway, but that’s not to say there wasn’t variety in my roadtrip soundtrack.  The past month might have been heavy on metal, but it also saw exciting releases in...

Hate Eternal Lead Onslaught of Death at Marquis

‘We’re about to get into some metal in about 2 fucking seconds!’ Erik Rutan was not a happy man during soundcheck following Origin‘s set on their dual-headlining tour. The sound guy, violently pushing his way through those of us up front wasn’t having a good day either. ‘Plug this in!‘ ‘Fuckin’ nothing!!!‘ ‘Does this...

Nile @ Bluebird 1/25/10

Just got back from the Nile show at the Bluebird.  I still can’t hear so well, and the ringing in my ears is preventing me from sleeping.  Nile is a death metal band from South Carolina, made up of Karl Sanders and Dallas Toler-Wade on vocals and guitar, Chris Lollis on bass and George...

Derailed: Metal/Hardcore 2009 Part 2

Every so often I will be posting under the ‘Derailed’ heading. This is for posts that are outside my normal comfort area…indie rock/pop. There are so many flavors of metal now.  I’m sure there were back in the mid-80’s as well, but back then I just knew I liked heavy metal and didn’t realize...
