Methra

Tell readers about Methra’s history and sound… Methra formed from the ashes of the Tucson grind band Sarafan and blackened tech death metal band Serows in the summer of 2010. We were tired of doing those bands, and had always wanted to move in a heavy direction. We recorded a 7″ and a 10″ split [&hellip

Full of Hell – Roots of Earth Are Consuming My Home

For Maryland based Full of Hell, this full length is a disemboweling experience for those light of hearing and light in spirit as it is extreme classic hardcore meets spine snapping grind, infected with some viral sludge contagion still fermenting from the early 90’s. Their sound is complete with doom echoing baritone, Iommi-like riffs and [&hellip

Fairly new to the scene, Indianapolis sludge/grind duo, Late August, have stormed the gates with both barrels blazing. Having already shared the stage with the likes of Sourvein and Coffinworm among others, cousins Daniel and Scott Wilson have quickly began carving the Late August name into the extreme music history books. With their debut full-length [&hellip

Coffinworm

Indianapolis, Indiana’s beloved and blackened sludge demons of otherworldly doom annihilation, Coffinworm, are the hell-raisers your priest should’ve damn well warned you about. For those that somehow have yet to be initiated, the band’s full length, When All Became None, simply owns your filthy soul and there‘s nothing you can do about it. It’s been [&hellip

Batillus – Furnace

It’s probably safe to say that the late 1980’s and early 1990’s were the most significant when it comes to what molded my musical taste into the rabid, death-dealing beast of diversity it is today. Yes, those are the bygone days when I witnessed my own budding interest in all things in any way metal-related [&hellip

Weekend Nachos – Worthless

Most of the time, when first introduced to a band, most of us can somehow formulate a pretty accurate mental vision of what the tunes will sound like, based on that band’s name alone. For instance, I’m assuming it’s a fairly safe bet that when you first heard the name Cannibal Corpse…the chances are highly [&hellip

At Our Heels – Misanthropy and Godlessness

It’s probably a pretty safe bet that most legitimate, die-hard music fans have at least one pet peeve in common with their peers. For some, it’s most definitely the use of genre types or the multitude of throw-away labels that can be slapped on a band’s sound for an easy way out. Meanwhile, the action [&hellip

Kata Sarka – The Great Dereliction

Let’s get some numbers here. How many of us can honestly say that we’ve been hit by a speeding, smoking, growling Mack truck straight outta Hell and loaded with explosives (figuratively OR literally) not just once, but twice, and lived to tell the tale? Furthermore, if the slim chance should occur that someone on Earth [&hellip
