It’s a timeless argument that we all have become accustomed to: which of the two titans would win in a fight to the death? We’ll never truly have an answer, since Batman and Superman are very rarely pitted against one another in comics, but a movie based around a conflict between them? On not just a physical but moral way? That seems awesome, right?  

Immitation may be the finest form of flattery, but actually being able to build off of your influences is another thing entirely. Such is the story of Vibrion, who wear their death metal influences proudly, but are carving their own path entirely. Their first album in years, Bacterya shows everyone how to put out solid, old school  death metal in 2016.  

After successfully kick-starting the MCU’s arrival on Netflix last year, Daredevil is back with another season less than a year later. The Punisher and Elektra join the Devil in Hell’s Kitchen as New York is faced with a new threat that pushes the series further onto the dark, violent streets of the city. Any doubts to be had are quickly swept away as the series sets a new standard for itself and all other comic book properties.  

  Back in the early nineties, when the Seattle Grunge Sound was tearing through the Metal community, there was one band that was still plowing through and actually gaining traction, as band after band released music that was stalling at the gate. The irony was that this band also hailed from the state of Washington, but sounded nothing like their contemporaries coming from the same area. The band was Queensryche, and as anyone who knows Queensryche, this band has a unique a sound as any.  

As one of the leading bands in the NWOAHM, Killswitch Engage’s 7th release manages to impress and keep the band’s uplifting brutality going strong into 2016. Not without some flaws, Incarnate shows the band improving, all the while being sure to keep their fans happy.  

Hardcore, one of the only ‘core styles worth any kind of damn, has it’s legendary bands. And now it has another, built from the ashes of others: Poison Tongues. About to drop their debut album next month, For Freedom’s Sake, on Fast Break! Records, here are some quick words for this fast jab to the mouth of an album!  

Another from the pits of depravity that we all love and call Mommy, the brand new slab of depravity, Volume 1: Morpras, by Tales of the Tomb come charging out of the gates howling for blood! Click into this missive to see all the still dripping bits!  

Jam Session Ahoy! Doom deliverers Canyon of the Skull have dropped a lovingly wicked little album into the hands of the review minions, and here are some words about their 2 song masterpiece, Canyon of the Skull! So click here so they feel accomplished ->!  

Death Metal is a genre overpopulated by a vast valley of bands, good and bad, who strive to bring the deathiest of metals to a field laden with the corpses and footprints of both spectrums. A relative new comer, hailing from the land of the brogue, is Iniquitous Savagery, who have dropped their newest bloody slab of brutality, Subversions of the Psyche, upon us! Read further for more words!  

Where: Jake’s Backroom, Lubbock, TX When: 09/30/15 Who: Sindel, Violent Vendetta, All Falls Down, SuperJoint  

So what can we say after the 2 hour premier for heroes reborn. From the start, its hard to say if we can call this an immediate reboot or sequel, but what I have seen from the premier is a compilation of recycled bits of comic book fandom. The “reborn” aspect reminding me of the “Avengers Reborn” arc from the 90’s while Noah Bennets hidden base stems from a bat-cave depiction of bat-man. The idea that derives from what an “evo” is, is similar to what a “mutie” represents from X-Men.  

Industrial is like that cousin who writes ‘Literature’: full of bands that think they are creating something that will touch the soul, but are really just sticking things together with glue sticks. Know How To Carry A Whip by Corrections House addresses this. By throwing it into a cell and beating the shit out of it.
