Live Review: Disma/Arsis/Immolation at Webster Hall in NYC, June 28 2010

Live Review: Disma/Arsis/Immolation at Webster Hall in NYC, June 28 2010

Immolation's Bob Vigna (L) and Ross Dolan (R) cast down a token of malice. Immolation's official headlining tour for Majesty And Decay was not even to begin until the onset of autumn, but since neither of the planned New York State shows were going to be hosted anywhere near the City (and no one hates commuting more than a New Yorker!), the [...]

New York Death Metal: a primer

New York Death Metal: a primer

Reputable as one of America's most populous and culturally rich regions, our fair state of New York naturally boasts its own timeworn death metal tradition. In regards to notoriety and scope of influence, New York Death Metal (handily abbreviated as NYDM) is the cold, northern counterpart to the world-famous Floridian style: both scenes seem to [...]

Maryland Deathfest synopsis: Day Three

Maryland Deathfest synopsis: Day Three

Sinister: it was worth frying under the sun to watch them. And now for the final chapter: Day Three. This is unfortunately the point where your neighborhood reporter went flat-out derelict with the coverage, which is why there are several important acts lacking in review here. However, all the really big-name bands of the evening were caught, [...]

Maryland Deathfest synopsis: Day Two

Maryland Deathfest synopsis: Day Two

The Chasm's Daniel Corchado We continue with our overview of MDF VIII, this time with a focus on Day Two, which very well might've had the most intense lineup out of what was already a respectable 3-day listing. "F***in' Autopsy" were definitely the main draw here, but there were so many great bands on the premises that this reviewer could [...]

33 1/3: Reign In Blood by D.X. Ferris

The pamphlet-sized 33 1/3 series of books is dedicated to providing exhaustive analyses for a bevy of top-hit contemporary music albums. D. X. Ferris' account of Slayer's groundbreaking major label debut, Reign in Blood, enjoys the distinction of being one of the only Metal works in a rock-n'-roll dominated catalogue (specifically, it's the [...]

GOREAPHOBIA – Mortal Repulsion

GOREAPHOBIA – Mortal Repulsion

Goreaphobia - "Mortal Repulsion". Ibex Moon, 2009. If you were a stateside tape-trading fiend in the early '90s, chances are you might have had your hands on some demos by those pernicious Pennsylvanians, Goreaphobia. Based on the strength of the demo cuts and the Omen of Masochism single, it must have seemed like Goreaphobia were poised to [...]

ASPHYX – Death…The Brutal Way

ASPHYX – Death…The Brutal Way

Asphyx - "Death...The Brutal Way". Ibex Throne, 2009. Here's another band who've just emerged from a nearly decade-long period of silence (besides Beherit): Asphyx, the Dutch legends of old school death metal. What makes this reunion especially outstanding, though, is that the band has once again joined forces with original vo-kill-ist Martin [...]
