From down south. No, further south. Guanajuato, Mexico. Ominous Crucifix is bringing some much needed Satanism back to death metal. They are from Mexico, but the songs are all sung in English.  It’s a  bit different from other Mexican death metal albums in that it doesn’t have much blasting, its more intricate & there’s melodies. More like Scandinavian death metal.  

Irving Plaza was full of 80’s hair metal fans, hairspray, and spandex on Wednesday night for a sold out Steel Panther show. The packed crowd were entertained by a medley of Iron Maiden, Guns N’ Roses, and Metallica as they waited for the comedic band to take the stage. Two hours after doors the lights finally dimmed as fans drowned out Black Sabbath with chants of “Steel Pan-ther!” The Vegas hair metal band started out with ‘Supersonic Sex Machine’ from their 2011 release, ‘Balls Out’. Their set was mixed with stand up comedy as vocalist Michael Starr joked about the other band members, girls in the audience, and drugs. They had the audience laughing constantly during... 

The night kicked off with Rex Brown’s new band Kill Devil Hill, a Southern Metal band with Rex on bass, Vinny Appice on drums, Mark Zavon playing guitar & not much known is about their singer,  Dewey Bragg, but he resembled Layne Staley vocal wise, but with a much better beard.  

The Best Buy Theater in Times Square began to fill up on Tuesday night as up and coming band For Today opened up the show.  

From Quebec, a proud raw black metal three piece awaits in the cold for war. Nevermind the lyrics & song titles, you can tell from just the music this band loves their native land. A couple songs even start with a small folk piece that sets the mood.  

A more guitar driven album than their previous ambient works, still just as heavy & still able to send you to his frozen realm.

I think the French are a serious  rival for the Norwegians in black metal. Coming from the not so cold Vernouillet, Haemoth, a two man project, is raw black in its purest form. In Nomine Odium is their third full length album after a variety of demos, splits & compilations.

Sounds from the South, Loincloth is a three piece instrumental progressive metal group. Iron Balls of Steel is their third attempt & they’ve cleaned up quite a bit. The bass player & drummer come from Confessor, a doom metal band with a vocalist. Dropping the vocals was a great idea for these two.  

Every note is deliberate. Each song simple yet complex, with a mind of its own yet so fitting & perfect with one another.  

It’s time to GO! The classic 1980’s Hanna Barbera cartoon television series is back on DVD, with the first five episodes digitally remastered on a single disc. Witness the action of the destructive GoBot rebels under the orders of the infamous Cy-Kill against the GoBot Guardians sworn to protect the inhabitants of planet Earth.  

Rally-ho! The 1966 Hanna-Barbera cartoon trio, The Impossibles, is back, along with the mechanical marauder, Frankenstein Jr. on a 2-disc set! Complete with maniacally preposterous villains, witty action phrases and heroic banter, the crime-fighting combination of the dynamic trio and riveting robot brings out a classic sense of comedic superhero-based adventure.
