    This review is in observance of the tenth anniversary of Conference of the Birds. The CD edition was originally released on February 24 but the vinyl was on April 17.

    So last year I wrote an anniversary review on OM's debut album "Variations on a Theme" and admittedly I was at the time joyous over the album and still am now. This time the natural follow-up would come with their seminal sophomore effort "Conference of the Birds" (Taking the title from lengthy Persian poem of a flock of birds seeking out a king but in end finding their enlightenment in one own reflection). There's no real wording around how much I like the band at this point so admittedly I was hyped. One trip to Ear X-Tacy in 2006 led me and a close friend to a day of album …

    When 3/4 of your band suddenly leave (One of which had played with the band nearly fifteen years!) some changes are going to happen in some way one or another. Tatsu Mikami being the sole mastermind behind the serial killing sounds of Church of Misery actually took a different approach to the next album by collaborating with musicians outside of Japan. While at one point Australian guitarist Tom Sutton (The Order of Israfel) joined along this was a whole different ballgame, working entirely with musicians outside his native soil. Needless to say the musicians recruited only added to the intrigue, procuring guitarist Dave Szulkin (Blood Farmers), drummer Eric Little (Earthride, Internal Void) and Scott Carlson (Repulsion, Cathedral) as the …

    It’s been a long one waiting and a hellacious journey leading up to it but the filthy dirge that is Electric Wizard’s eighth album, Time To Die, is upon us. Four years between records so hype was abound. Unfortunately a boatload of drama happened to rear its ugly head as well. The cliff notes version of the timeframe between Black Masses and Time To Die:

    -In 2012 Simon Poole and Glenn Charman are revealed as the new rhythm section and “Legalise Drugs and Murder” is the single for the next album. Many interviews with hate-laden comments towards ex-members (To be fair, everyone really!) are abound the highlight being “Well, YOU try …

    Pallbearer live 2-28-2016 at Zanzabar, Louisville, KY.

    "This is our first time we've ever played here. We've heard so much good about Louisville and we're really happy to have sold out our first Louisville show."

    I knew full well going into this show that it'd be the most packed I would ever see Zanzabar. While I've seen the venue with sizable crowds in the past (Notably King Buzzo and Bernie Worrell's appearances there in past years) I got word this one was destined to legit sell out. I get to the venue very close to the scheduled start time and it's already fairly packed. Not long after a light array of guitar works and minimalist atmosphere woul…

    Voivod - Post Society

    February 28, 2016 by YourNamePlease


    A gut-rumbling bass tone Lemmy would be proud of.

    A pounding, punky double-bass reminiscent of Philthy Animal.

    Thrashing guitars that’s every bit as rock n’ roll as it is metal…

    Once Snake’s vocals kick in I have to realize I’m not quite listening to Motörhead for a second there!

    That said the twisted dystopia kick-start in “Post Society” reminds me of exactly that before evolving and mutating into Voivod’s trademark mix of progressive and thrash. The tone here is blistering but deviates and slows the pace into something lucid and catchy, a moment to have fun in any kind of apocalypse even with lyrics to match the atmosphere.

    That said Voivod’s most recent audio outing is not quite a new album but rather a five-song EP and a solid half-hour fro…
