I live in NYC and have yet to see Swans. Yes, I absolutely love them. So, start the flogging…

I have The Seer and To Be Kind on vinyl. That will do just fine actually.

Thank you!

Now…I have issues with the Orgasmatron placement. Built For Speed? One of my favorite Motörhead tracks. That’s as deep as I’ll go, because Motörhead. There are not many music blogs that do this kind of thing and absolutely NONE do it with as much passion and depth. Minor quibbles aside, this is fucking tremendous.

Besides Orgasmatron, No Voices In The Sky is possibly my favorite ‘head banger.

Damn it that did not work out the way I wanted. How does one post a gif?

I had to skip Tsjuder at MDF to see Yob. I think I made the wrong call..

Horrendous! That track absolutely rips. The latest Decibel has a studio report and that had me amped up to expect great things this soon actually. They say they will never use outside producers because they’re absolute perfectionists. I believe them!

I’m very intrigued by the rest here, particularly Necroblaspheme and Lluvia, based on the write ups.

Awesome TBM again!

Damn that is great! Thanks for sharing. It seriously is Slash-standing-on-a-fucking-mountain-in-November-Rain level bombast…but much more satisfying, especially since it was completely unexpected and note perfect. I have no idea how to play the guitar but I would spend the rest of my days trying to get something even half that good out of my fingers if I did…

Those first few notes that sound like falling down stairs (to me) make me wanna punch pop stars and burn kittens. And I like pop stars and kittens!

Aaron was right from the get go :). That short little break right before the solo kicks in is making the hair on my arms stand on end right now, and I’m only thinking about it!

I saw them 2 years ago opening for Watain/In Solitude at Irving Plaza. I had heard their name but, at the time, I associated it more with a Possessed tune. That has definitely changed but I still can’t get “Tribulation/In love with Satan” out of my head whenever I hear the word, in any context.

My point was that I bought The Formulas Of Death right after their set (and they are seriously the nicest guys ever) and I have been DYING to see them perform a full headlining set ever since. You are right – STOP TEASING ME!!!

Hahahaha this is so awesome. Keep up the unfiltered enthusiasm please. I am disappointed about this tour frankly, not bc I don’t like Deafheaven (I do), but because I have to catch Tribulation opening instead of as the world beating headlining act they clearly are! I can’t STOP listening to CofN. But…I am very excited to catch Deafheaven (and Envy) as well.

See you at Webster Hall!

Yeah. No blubbering of course. Just a manly tear or two.

IRON FUCKING MAIDEN. What a great piece of writing…

Agreed. I may finally have to break down and listen to these guys! Sounds like I should’ve done that years ago…on it!

And has anyone heard Dolly’s album from last year, her 42nd (!)? It’s really great.

I’m really digging this newish crop of anti-Nashville-machine country artists. This guy, Whitey Morgan, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell (he’s country enough). Awesome, awesome stuff…

I could not agree more. This is insipid, uninspired ear swill for the lowest common denominator. Total shit.

This is the worst kind of shit. Keep your pop culture out of my metal dicks! And I’m a huge Simpsons and sexy Flanders fan.

This is a fine addition to one of the greatest oeuvres in recorded history. I will be hyperbolic if I want. It’s Maiden and it’s metal.

Up the irons bitches!
