Death metal legends Cannibal Corpse are dropping their new record Torture next week. Are you excited yet? You fucking should be. The album is equal parts brutal, gory, and awesome.
Classic Corpse album art. I love the fact that much of their album art has a similar appearance to it, almost making them feel more like a series of novels than a set of records. Maybe I read too many fantasy novels. Anyway, full review after the jump!
Soundcheck Rage: MWR interviews The Sword’s Kyle Shutt
Independent internet bloggers don’t always get to conduct interviews in optimum conditions. Sometimes rooms are dark, it’s not very quiet, and since I make a college students’ living, I don’t own very sophisticated recording equipment (yet). And sometimes all of those poor conditions rear their ugly heads at once and make an interview very hard to conduct. This was the case on July 21st when I interviewed The Sword’s guitarist Kyle Shutt. However, despite the poor conditions and having to edit out a good portion of the interview, this one still turned out pretty cool. The video quality is awful, but you can still understand what we’re talking about. What’s really lame is that the best part of the interview had to get cut simply because the local act was started their soundcheck halfway through the interview. It’s not like they were trying to sabotage my interview, but it still sucks being a victim of circumstance. Check it out after the jump.
A few months back, Tetrafusion contacted me and asked if I would be interested in doing some writing about them. I was happy to oblige. Unfortunately, the last few months have also been overly busy, so writing took a backseat, but I’m really happy to finally give you guys my review of Tetrafusion’s sophomore release, Altered State.
Before we get into the review, check out Tetrafusion’s video for their single Monologue. It’s got everything: split personalities, murder, guns…what’s not to love!
I created this blog to share interviews, reviews, and other writeups about heavy metal, and occasionally something only tangentially metal related.. I also wanted to put forth a more logical approach to metal. Too many people out there want to spout their opinions without warranting them with evidence, so I'm here to make sure someone brings some logic to the table.
