You have no excuse to have never heard of D.R.I or their blasphemous drunken grandchildren Municipal Waste unless you are lobotomized from headbanging too much. Even then the last thing that is ringing through your mind eternally is a foreboding D.R.I. riff. So what do you get when D.R.I. meets up with Municipal Waste, you my fellow metal head gets BAT! Formed between Ryan Waste , Felix Griffin, and Nick Poulos, BAT is a speed metal demon! We have waited for 3 years and...

Are you familiar with the name Runemagick? How about Nicklas “Terror” Rudolfsson? I really don’t give a fuck if you said yes or no to either of those questions whats important here is that Rapid Terrör is 50% of what I just mentioned. Runemagick is one of the most important names in the Doom Death world and Rapid Terrör is a Nicklas Rudolfsson side project, and its fuckin’ speed metal as fuck! There are only two releases from Rapid Terrör that were...

GREETINGS AND FELICITATIONS CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY   Long before he told us about some goth girls date at midnight with Nosferatu, and before his name was Peter Steele(R.I.P) , we we’re given some down right dirty New York City style Thrashy Speed with tinges of Hardcore, we we’re given Lord Petrus Steele and Carnivore. If you are a Type O Negative fan and you dig the song Unsuccessfully Coping with the Natural Beauty of Infidelity, well, how about a whole...

So you think pure heavy metal is dead huh? Well pull your head out of your ass and fasten your seatbelts and listen to Straight Shooter by Speedtrap. Finland is more known for their extreme metal bands in genres of black and death metal in the vein of Impaled Nazarene and Archgoat but Speedtrap is a different kind of animal. The raw talent displayed on this album is quite the fascination. A band like Speedtrap in this era of music is insane. Speedtrap is a lightning fast...

Not long ago, around the turn of the century, there was a big retro-thrash sound that took over the underground scene. Now I am a big fan of thrash so it really never bothered me, but some true thrashers really, and I mean really, fucking hated it.  The two bands that really took off big of the retros were Toxic Holocaust, who really lost focus on the Bathory worship and tried to evolve a retro sound into their own but kinda Metallica’d out(just with a ton less money)...
