For those on the east coast, Sumerlands and Eternal Champion are playing Johnny Brenda's in Philly on July 8th.

I've actually been back to listening to Sumerlands recently. Wish more bands going for the "old school" thing would go for solo Ozzy style stuff rather than NWOBHM

Then again I'm sure if everyone was doing it I'd say the opposite, lol

I feel like every time I try and listen to a new band doing the HM-2 thing I just turn it off after 15 minutes and go listen to Indecent and Obscene.

I like the way you death metal.
I'll never get tired of that Swedish buzzsaw Boss HM-2 tone though, so I welcome it.

Warning: it's the dude from Satanic Warmaster, so keep that in mind depending on how you feel about listening to bands with NSBM leanings.

These covers are awesome, especially the Journey To Silius one.

Sad news out of the slam scene, Martin Funderud (vocalist of Kraanium) has passed away.
Martin's twin brother Mats (who plays guitar in Kraanium) has posted this picture to facebook:


I can't imagine what Mats is going through right now. To play in a band with your twin brother for sixteen years and then lose him at the young age of 38 must be devastating.

Kraanium were one of the bands that got me into slam and for that I'll always be thankful.

R.I.P. to both Martin Funderud and William Tolley.

I'll be blasting some sick slams in honor of both of them!

I like the new Ghost Bath. It feels at least slightly further from their deafheaven sound on the first album. I still think I like their first album a bit better, but this is good. Their screams seem kind of unneeded in some of the songs though. Like they're just there to remind us this is some sort of black metal.

Enjoying the new Body Count album. As always, lyrics rubberband from ludicrously silly to pointedly serious. Overall I think Manslaughter was better, but this one is no slouch. Interestingly, Slayer songs are listenable when a band that doesn't suck plays them, so that's good to know.

Going to be seeing Sabaton on Friday down in NYC and the two bands that are opening for them are totally unknown to me. Anyone ever heard of Leaves Eyes and/or Battle Beast and if so can you suggest any of their stuff that I should listen to leading up to the show?

Cult Of Luna - YEARS IN A DAY (official teaser)

CULT OF LUNA - YEARS IN A DAY: ‘The Sweep’ & ‘Light Chaser’ (Official live video)

Cult of Luna's new live DVD, Years in a Day, has come out, and it's supposedly one incredible assault on the senses. If anyone here has seen them, you know what you're in for. A visual and auditory slap. Check this teaser video out along with the first track on the DVD. So fucking good! They have the most insane lighting.

Funnily enough I never really was a fan of alestorm but the new song made me listen to some of their stuff again and I think it might actually be a ton of fun with a bit of alcohol...

I just discovered Vampire through their latest album: With Primeval Force.



To me this album sounds like they threw some Teutonic trash metal into the usual Swedish death metal. Really nice. Does anyone have some other band/album suggestion for this kind of mix?

This has been one of my top priorities for years. Never been able to find copies locally, nor am I going to pay inflated prices on Discogs or eBay. Fucking finally.

FIN - Arrows Of A Dying Age - this rules. Ultra rad black metal, riffs on riffs

In other news:

California Deathfest announced "Massacre X" at their first announcement. I looked them up and it appeared to be a spinoff of Massacre by Rick Rozz. Wasn't impressed by their last "reunion" run laced with Pantuuura so I didn't really care

Randomly search on facebook today and it's billed as "featuring Rick Rozz and Kam Lee"..........in the age of reunions people didn't think would happen, how is this not a bigger deal? Way more interested and might actually spring for CDF now

Because I think people got tired of dive bombs and whammy bars in 1988.

Ed Repka is the master of recycling

It's pretty hilarious, neo-thrash kids pay him to make album covers and he's been found reusing assets in several of them. Like reusing faces and shit. Lol

As far as Vio-Lence goes, I love them to death but From Beyond is better than Eternal Nightmare. Oppressing stomps both


This one springs to mind but there's surely more, also other assets reused in backgrounds and such. Looks like he used the same intestines for both of these as well

So I happened upon a used copy of Between the Buried and Me Colors live cd/dvd this past weekend and its kinda blowing me away. My only other experience was their newest album and I liked it but it never really hooked me. Been listening to some of their older stuff (via Spotify) as well and it seems pretty consistent. I have some catching up to do.

Debating about going to see Pallbearer, Inter Arma and Gatecreeper. It requires a 2 hour drive but thats not a deal breaker. I live in an area where I have to drive 2-4 hours for most any show I want to see. Opinions on if this will be a good show?

Colors is pretty great, but yeah the new one, Coma Ecliptic wasn't quite as good as some previous releases I thought. Parallax II is my favorite hands down.

I think those albums are great OSDM but I'd be more excited to buy them if the dudes in Malevolent Creation weren't noted racists.
