I WANNNNAAAA FLYYYYYYYYYY….. wrong band you dipshit. See this is what happens when a scene ruins a real genre. They try to name themselves something edgy not knowing that a better band with the same name exists(INCUBUS I’M LOOKING AT YOU). But we are not talking about Incubus and we definitely are not talking about the atrocious Las Vegas band we are talking about fucking Slaughter from fucking Canada. You know F.O.D. no no that does not mean something stupid...

Here is something for you doomdeathers out there, Dream Death’s Journey Into Mystery. Have you ever wondered what Slayer would sound like if they were a doom metal band… Look no further than Dream Death’s 1987 release Journey into Mystery. This is one of those albums that was cast away to early. There is so much riffage and slow on this album. There were very few outfits in this time frame doing music like Dream Death. Just when you thought Paradise Lost...

  Indestroy was one of those bands that showed up for a brief period of time and was fast. I mean really fast. They had many mid paced thrash down pieces but once the solo came down it was straight to the point divebomb, punk aggression. There were a lot of bands like this in the mid to late 80’s from many different labels that were taking what bands like D.R.I. were doing and trying to make it their own. Though Indestroy does not sound like most of the other...

Brazil, the land of resort hotels, taxi cab kidnappings, and paradise….and… THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BANDS IN EXTREME METAL OF THE 80’S. Once upon a time ago there was this band that had a name that was Portuguese for sepulcher… I think they were called Sepultura. Well this little unknown band, Sepultura, could barely speak English, but that did not stop them from releasing the E.P. Beastial Devastation, and the full length album Morbid Visions, which...

 This album, along with Carnivore and Wastelander’s War Drive should be the soundtrack to the Road Warrior.. If it came out later. Amebix, name ring a bell? The most mainstream exposure they ever got was Igor wearing one of their shirts in a music video for a Sepultura track off of Chaos A.D. which is quite Ironic because both bands have an album called Arise. Guess which one came out first. The borderline between crust punk and metal has always been thin. The...
