As a Metalhead, no doubt all of you will face the day to day struggle of finding the most Metal thing. Whatever it be, any form of subgenre, we as Metalhead’s seem to have an innate want to turn it into something that will be as Metal as possible. With this in mind, I set about to find the most Metal Disney film of all time and I think I found it.

Zeal & Ardor’s Manuel Gagneux – A Musical Tinkerer

One of the most important scientists to have ever lived, Sir Isaac Newton and the Apple is a classic story on ingenuity. For those who might not know, Newton was sat down when all of a sudden an Apple fell from the tree and hit his head. Inspiring the idea that created what we now know in the modern day as gravity. Winding further back in humanity’s timeline to the ancient Greeks, the people proclaimed Gallileo to be stark raving mad for claiming that instead of being flat, that the earth was in fact a sphere. Not quite understanding the sheer level of intellectual ingenuity put forward people are often scared by change.

One of the most exciting bands to have ever come out of Poland. At The young age of sixteen, Decapitated unveiled Winds of Creation. A record that even by today’s standards is held up in incredibly high regard. Being plagued with all manner of setbacks, some far more impactful than others, tenacity has been the band’s mantra throughout their career and today they have announced a brand new chapter in the form of new album Anticult.

2017 And Some Of The Best So Far
26th April 2017, 10:30

Despite it only being April, there have been some absolutely staggeringly good releases so far. I thought that it might be pertinent to show just what kind of calibre of releases we have been treated to in the first four months of the year and its an absolute white wash across the board of talent.

What Makes Creeper So Catchy?!

Posted by Tristan

Potentially one of the most talked about bands of late, Creeper are THE hot topic at the moment. Having somewhat buried my head in the sand regarding the band, I was somewhat late in catching the Creeper fever. Which made me wonder, what is it that is making this British group so catchy!

Gojira : After The Magma Cools

Hailing from across the borders into Europe, Gojira are easily one of the biggest exports to come out of France since their cheese. All stereotypes aside, the band have slowly been churning away their Metallic maelstrom. Hard to believe that fourteen years ago their now eponymous The Link was released. Slowly gaining momentum the band would be leading to their most important release of their career, Magma. Unveiled last year the second the mystical single “Stranded” hit the airwaves, immediately the music world was speculating Gojira’s momentous return. Now almost one year on the band have not only grown but understood how to use their magnified power to devastating effect. In celebration and after a long stint of supporting slots the band at long last made their return last month with a headline performance in London.

Nineties Death Metal : Death – Spiritual Healing
5th April 2017, 11:46
Posted by Tristan

The undisputed (for some) fathers of Death Metal, Chuck Schuldiner, the man responsible for creating the movement saw his third incarnation of Death come together for Spiritual Healing. The beginning of Death’s evolution from the macabre to the more philosophical, Spiritual Healing is essential in the development of the band’s later career and not to mention one of the most important Death Metal records too!
