Remember when MTV played good music, remember when MTV played bad music, remember when MTV played music? Carcass, among others, were of the truest metal bands to once upon a time ago to have been played on the now decayed into repeats of Ridiculousness network of MTV. Of all the videos MTV denied they somehow allowed this one for “Incarnated Solvent Abuse” to play in rotation. MTV used to give less of a fuck, I mean shit, they had a video about doing drugs and...

ONE MORE TIME GRANDMA! How do I put this delicately and politically correct? O.L.D‘s self title album sounds like the soundtrack to an amputee, cracked-out, midget, down-syndrome, orgy. This is by far the most bizarre and tolerable as grindcore can get for me before I say go fuck yourself with your track titles that are longer than your tracks, but……. this album is actually good? I say that as a question because I do not know why I can (and do at full...

Death metal purists, you know the ones that are like “I won’t eat apples because they have a core”,here is the thorn in your sides. Two members from a legendary band by the name of Morbid Angel made a (if not the best ever) grind album back in 1989 that has yet to be rivaled, their names being Pete Sandoval and David Vincent, the album being World Downfall, the bands name…. Terrorizer. The name is so beautiful because that’s what they were to...

  Previous to Realm of Chaos, Bolt Thrower was an extremely crusty, hardcore, grind outfit. To classify Bolt Thrower’s previous work pre-Realm of Chaos, even their debut In Battle There is No Law!, as death metalĀ  would be a stretch. Realm of Chaos was a new sound for Bolt Thrower as they traded their crust punk tendencies for pure grind and their hardcore punk sounds for death metal, creating the first of many extremely heavy, unrelenting , warfare influenced,...

When metal bands first started to be technical, there wasn’t really a term for it. It just kind of happened and some were good at it,others not so much. As the years have gone by the word technical in association to Metal will generally make you think of Death Metal… what if I was to tell you one of the most techincal albums ever made is by a Doom Metal band that features a vocalist that sounds like Geddy Lee. Confessor’s 1991 album Condemned is one of...
