Blackguard - "Profugus Mortis" review

Sometimes it just takes some tenacity and hardwork. Blackguard, a band formed in 2001 under the name Profugus Mortis, finally settles on a lineup and gets their album onto the streets.

Updates on Old Rumors in the Metal Scene

Okay, so just to follow up, here's an update on some old rumors that I've reported on in the past.

Sometimes you can't fight anymore, and you just have to give up the battle. I didn't want to, but I admitted defeat. After years of trying to convince myself otherwise, I've finally thrown in the towel. I've given up trying to like Bolt Thrower. I just don't. I like the attitude, I like the legacy, I like the cover art, I respect their catalogue of work and their accomplishments. But I just don't like the music. I tried. I really did. Add Bolt Thrower to the list of bands I finally just gave up on, including Soulfly, Voivod, Mastodon, Pro-Pain, and a host of others.
