Grindcore guitar god Takafumi Matsubara (Gridlink and Mortalized) has a new band now, Retortion Terror. They have recorded a split with an American grind band called Invidiosus. Both bands are currently seeking labels to print and distribute the release on CD, cassette, and LP.8 Comments
Review by Linus Douglas.
Heresiarch is the only band to have made so-called ‘war metal’ into something that was not just head bashing and blood splattering nonsense.38 Comments
The English translation of Tero Ikäheimonen’s comprehensive Finnish black metal book, Pirunkehto – Suomalaisen black metallin tarina, is coming out September 15th on Svart Records with the English title The Devil’s Cradle. The book features interviews and career retrospectives of Beherit, Impaled Nazarene, and a bunch of other bands who do not count and have no reason to be in the same book as they suck and play crossover thrash with high-gain guitar pedals and RAC/oi themed pop-punk . These modern black ‘n’ roll bands aren’t even from the same era; they are just poseurs.31 Comments

Blood are playing their first ever American show in Seattle, Washington thhis fall on November 18th. Apparently Demoncy and a Seattle area promoter met up with them in Germany and convinced them to fly to the states for a one-off gig. Will Demoncy open for Blood? This is a can’t miss show for Pacific Northwest headbangers!5 Comments
