Suffer The Children – Napalm Death live in Lawrence, KS 02/26/15

There aren’t very many bands like Napalm Death left in the world. Going into their 34th year as a band, the UK group has left permanent marks on the formation of grindcore, death metal and extreme music as a whole.

Jackson May’s Top 10 Albums Of 2013 10. Bring Me The Horizon – Sempiternal Continuing the movement of bucking nearly everything that made them unlistenable in their startup years, Bring Me The Horizon have made their first really good album. “Sempiternal” is more post-hardcore than deathcore, and they do it much better than they ever […]

Slaughtercult: Exhumed live at Riot Room 10/01

California’s Exhumed might just be the best death metal/grindcore band going strong today not named Carcass.

With a discography that only gets stronger and stronger with each release, the amount of energy and precision […]

Gore Metallers Exhumed Are Coming

California gore masters Exhumed may have just done the impossible. Legendary death metal group Carcass has one of the most copied formulas of extreme metal in the history of the scene.
