Iron Maiden. Comfort Dental Amphitheater. 08.13.12

Reverb just posted a behind-the-scenes look into Psychopathic Records' "The Gathering of the Juggalos" festival that took place in rural Illinois this past week. While browsing through the black & white photos, I went through a series of emotions -- curiosity, apprehension, horror, repulsion, and even a little respect for those people who...

July 1, 2012
Fiona-Apple

The first half of June was spent working on the mid-year review, so there wasn’t quite as much time for new music.  That being said, there are still quite a few recommendations from this month — a month dominated by metal and female vocalists, including one incredible metal album with a female vocalist.  And...

Over the past few years Profound Lore has solidified itself as a primary tastemaker in the underground of extreme music.   2011 proved to be a banner year for the one-man Canadian label, and 2012 shows no signs of slowing down.  Not long after we posted our in-depth profile on the label, Profound Lore teamed...

May was almost overwhelming in its presentation of new music.  Not only were there countless new releases, I also took the time to catch up on some of the metal I had been missing out on, making this a heavy month in recommendations.  And as much as I hate grouping these into posts like...

‘cure my ills': Recommended Releases 04.12

April was a good month for music, but it did provide a lull in what has been an incredible start to the new year. That being said, there are still quite a few albums worth checking out, and as much as I hate grouping recommendations into posts like this, other aspects of life are...

notes from the coast: Scion Profound Lore Fest 03.31.12

When we wrote the profile on Profound Lore Records earlier this year, one of questions I posed to Chris Bruni was ‘ever thought of doing anything like the Power of the Riff shows that happened on the West Coast this year?’  His answer, in summary, was he would like to do it if he...

notes from the coast: Prong. Viper Room. 03.22.12

One of my favorite metal albums from the ‘Great American Metal Drought’ of the 90’s was Cleansing by the highly underrated NY crossover kings, Prong.  I’m a huge Tommy Victor fan, love his guitar tone, love his riffs and love his passion. The guy is a meat and potatoes metal warrior and whether he...

Gigantour 2012. Fillmore Auditorium.  02.28.12

‘Welcome to 3/4’s of the Gigantour‘  Megadeth were about halfway through their headlining set when Dave Mustaine addressed the elephant in the room, which was the fact that Lemmy was not.  ‘Thanks to all the Motörhead fans for sticking around‘  It was a small consolation to those of us who paid $60 for the...

If you are the type of person who prefers your music shroud in an air of mystery, it might disturb you to learn that the most exciting, innovative label in the extreme scene exists not in some secret lair, but amidst a peaceful piece of land outside of Toronto, Canada. Yes, you read that...
