Metal Monday #8 (Pig Destroyer)

Sep 12, 2016

Pig Destroyer is a blazingly fast Grindcore band that has been around since 1997. They are known for brutal and violent lyrics, along with a flare for the disturbing. Prowler in the Yard is my favorite album from Pig Destroyer. Aside from the totally awesome artwork, it also plays out like an insanely violent love story. From the obsessive intro track to the...

Metal Monday #7 (Carcass)

Jul 11, 2016

Carcass is an in-your-face-brutal-as-hell death metal band, whose influence has been felt in the metal industry for years.

Six years ago, four bands that were already 26 years past their prime, released some live concert footage from the Sonisphere Festival in Bulgaria. While I like the fact that they are more respectful to my beloved metal music in Europe, I was not entirely impressed with this release. Due to the drama surrounding these bands and their beginnings, it is no...

From MVD Entertainment, comes a great concert/documentary film. It is a film from well known director Robert Mugge, that covers the influential blues label that is Chicago based Alligator Records.
