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...

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...

  Coming from a skullcrushing crust punk sound in their early music, Onslaught’s The Force is a refined, epic, thrash, masterpiece.Onslaught, much like Sacrilege, started off as a hardcore/crusty punk band and evolved into a brilliant thrash band. Unlike their debut album Power From Hell (a very under rated and ripped off constantly album) which was a raw crusty thrash album, Onslaught sewed together elements of the bay area thrash scene and Iron Maiden stylised...

  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,...

This one is for all my crusters out there, but first I wanna talk to the trendy crust kids, Let me take you to school for a minute my smelly friends. You probably love HellKrusher, but if you don’t know Hellbastard or, more importantly, Energetic Krusher you don’t love HellKrusher, in fact, if you have a HellKrusher shirt or a patch you better burn it right now for being ignorant. Energetic Krusher’s Path To Oblivion, there is only three words for this...
