heavy metal

Forgotten Classics - Fireball Ministry

I'm beginning to believe that I'm one of the few people on the planet who has even heard this album. And of those people, I think I might be the only one who likes it. But I'm gonna stand up for it, dammit!

While “The Second Great Awakening” far from rewrites any particular piece of heavy metal, it carries a sold, thumping, beat-based standard for stoner metal and the broader metal genre as a whole.

Skillet's Favorite Monsters!

For a time there, these lists were coming in faster than I knew what to do with them! But alas, now I think I'm back on top of the heap, and here to present another one! Fresh off the wild success of their latest album, "Awake," singer John Cooper took a moment to sit down and hash out a list of his favorite monsters to go with their first single, "Monster." He's a man with little in the way of introduction, but they have an imminent tour coming up with Shinedown and Puddle of Mud, so I imagine he's a little busy.

Warbringer's Favorite Horror Movies!

I'm really excited to be able to present the following list to you. I have been trumpeting the merits of California-based thrash metal up and comers Warbringer for almost a year now, and I still get just as much enjoyment in their album "Waking Into Nightmares" as I did the day it was released. Here now with his top ten favorite horror films, John Laux, guitarist of Warbringer! The stage is yours:


Christopher Lee To Release Metal Album

I keep waiting for the punch line here but I'm starting to think there isn't one. In fact Christopher Lee's metal album, yeah I said metal album, based on the story of King Charlemagne is kind of catchy, maybe even good. Yup you read right, Mr. Dracula has a metal album coming out and he's sporting a loin cloth on the album cover. Alright the second part is a lie. If you want to check some of his songs out, and trust me you do, you can hop over to the official MySpace page and have a listen.

Concert Review - Clutch

I had just sat through three opening bands. I had just to wait an interminable amount of time between the last band and the band I paid to see. I had worked fourteen hours the day before, slept for five, then worked nine more before coming to the venue. I hadn't eaten in nine and a half hours. I was in no mood for bullshit.

After three cuts from “Strange Cousins of the West,” Neil Fallon approached the microphone, and not allowing for suspense, stated simply that Clutch was going to play two more new ones…and then the entire self-titles album.

Dani Filth's Top Ten Horror Movies

Who better to discuss horror movies from a heavy metal mindset than the man who assembled the "Gospel of Filth?" He's perfectly capable of speaking for himself, so Dani Filth of Cradle of Filth, take it away!

Katatonia talks horror!

Hello boys and girls. Continuing the series of metal musicians who want to use this space to talk about their favorite horror films, I'm giving it over to Anders Nystrom, guitarist for Swedish ambient metallers Katatonia. The stage is yours, sir!

The Top 11 Heavy Metal Albums of the Decade

Okay, with all the recent "best [blank] of the decade" going on, I decided it was high time I got involved. Seeing as how I can only proclaim myself to be an expert in a few things, and "best pork roast recipes of the decade" didn't seem terribly theme appropriate, I got to thinking about heavy metal, as I so often do.

Concert Review: GWAR 2009

I realize that everything I am about to say sounds like unabashed nonsense. It probably is. Bear with me.

So, self-described undisputed kings of splatter-metal GWAR had come to the conclusion that being addicted to crack and living endlessly at the behest of manager Sleazy P. Martini was no life for a god. So, procuring a Scumdog spaceship, they played their last on Earth and headed to their old stomping ground in the stars.

Album Review: "Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love and Hate" by Puddle of Mud

First off, a confession. When Puddle of Mudd burst onto the scene in 2001, my first thought as a good nerd was that they were making a reference to the Star Trek character Harry Mudd. Turned out not to be the case. I immediately thought less of the band. They’ve done little to
