Dark Ambient: For When You Need to Concentrate…or Meditate on the Nothingness of Existence

While we may not want to admit it to each other when engaged in the fruitless exercise of maintaining our street cred, we metalheads sometimes need to listen to something other than metal.

Full Album Stream: Necrovorous – “Plains of Decay”

The Devaluation of Opinion in Metal

Another beautiful 2017 day, another fucking trash fire in the world of metal. By now you may have seen images floating around of a tape with a generic spooky logo on top of some asshole’s vacation photo.
