Iron Maiden‘s Number of the Beast is an iconic music video. Watch it here! “The Number Of The Beast” “Woe to you, oh Earth and Sea, for the Devil sends the beast with wrath, Because he knows the time is short… Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast For it is a human number, Its number is Six hundred and sixty six. ” I left alone, my mind was blank. I needed time to think, to get the memories from my mind. What did I...

Widely regarded as the quintessential heavy metal album of all time, Iron Maiden‘s Power Slave is an album for the ages. There is not a single fan of music that has anything bad to say about this masterpiece. This is an essential album for all metal heads to own. Nothing says NWOBHM quite like Iron Maiden. Power Slave is the album that defines this era and genre of music to a T. I believe I have seen more Power Slave shirts in my life than any other album or band...

  If you are a fan of female fronted death thrash, Netherland’s own,  Izegrim has released The Ferryman’s End just for you. This is the album you need to listen to. There is a lot of animosity and ferociousness captured on this recording. The Ferryman’s End is the logical follow-up to 2013’s very successful Congress of the Insane, which drew a positively roaring press response from major magazines worldwide, with Aardschok calling Izegrim a...

Canada seems to always be the last mentioned place from where extreme metal originates. Oddly so being the fact that Canada’s metal scenes have had a huge contribution to every sub-genre. Canada is home to the likes of Blasphemy, Slaughter,  Procreation, Razor, Sacrifice, and even the prog rockers Rush.
