For Those About to Squawk: Tribulation, Bind Torture Kill, Genocide Pact

Well, we’re starting to get into the year a little bit, aren’t we? So vampiric rockers (is that a thing?) Tribulation are releasing Down Below. This is going to be a tough one for me here, as the metal community really likes this band, but I gotta say, I don’t get it. I’m not going to say it’s bad (a little polished for my liking), this is a good record and it’ll be well received by metalheads. So, here’s t ...

Q&A: Chaos Moon’s Alex Poole, Eric Baker, and Steven Blackburn Get Metaphysical

American black metallers Chaos Moon released one of the best albums of 2017. Just too late in the year to be absorbed, understood, and heralded by most for inclusion in year-end Top Lists. Nevertheless, Eschaton Mémoire‘s greatness isn’t predicated on mass acceptance or Top 10 placements, but rather the intent and content within. To wit, the 40-minute monster blends heavy doses of atmosphere and aggression, ...

Album Review: Tribulation – “Down Below”

Tribulation will be the first to admit the leap to Down Below from The Children of the Night isn’t as drastic as the one from The Formulas of Death. For now, the Swedes have settled on a blueprint that works. On all levels. They’ve taken canon, infused it with gothic rock, imbued it with folkmusik, lined it with an occult Art Nouveau aesthetic to devise a fiendish fingerprint that’s distinctive of everythin ...

Yes, it’s impossible to discuss Chepang, a grindcore quintent based out of New York City but originally from Nepal, and their self-dubbed “immigrindcore” music without touching up ...
