There was a point on my second listen off Down Below that I realized Tribulation had done the impossible. The quartet of Swedish musicians surfaced to the greater metal community in 2015 with the critically acclaimed The Children of the Night, transitioning from a death metal act to something else entirely. The Children of the Night, as the cover and the appearance of the band members would suggest, was vampiric and wholly original in comparison to the rest of the scene, which is what would make following the album up a daunting task few bands would be capable of.  

Rikki Rockett – you know him for his incredible talents behind the drums with Poison and Devil City Angels. But there is so much more to this guy than kick drums and crashing cymbal.  

Arizona’s Gatecreeper are continuing to make a name for themselves this year, with being on an opening slot for Cannibal Corpse being an already huge honor. To add to their ongoing hype, Gatecreeper have just dropped a new two-song EP, titled Sweltering Madness, in the middle of their trek across North America.  

Whether we like it or not, being “heavy” isn’t something exclusive to heavy metal music. Even in the genre, purists are still arguing what’s considered “true metal” and if it’s “extreme” enough to be metal, thus producing so much infighting on comment threads between black metal basement dorks and dads who haven’t listened to anything new in the scene if it doesn’t have a musician they know in it or doesn’t sound like an already existing band. There are, however, artists out there not remaining stationary in a genre, as much as a purist would like to hope they would, and as such in recent years there have been bands and musicians popping up that are incorporating metal elements into their music,... 

Yesterday at New York Comic-Con, the joint-announcement from Marvel and Netflix confirmed that the release for the upcoming Marvel series based on The Punisher had been pulled from the Con in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting this week. The removal of the panel, however, wasn’t the end of it.  

I never clicked with the Warped Tour-metalcore thing during my formative high school years, but August Burns Red have always been a cut above the rest. Still going strong after all these years, the technical metalcore group just doesn’t know when to stop. And if this tour is any indication, August Burns Red aren’t slowing down eight albums into their career.  

Cannibal Corpse are putting out a new album, and as you’d expect it’s going to be incredibly heavy, brutal, and a violent affair all around. Also, the sky is blue and bears live in the woods.  

Primitive Man are without a doubt one of the darkest, most punishingly brutal bands working today. Taking a no-filtered, straight to the point approach to noisy doom-inspired metal, Primitive Man are back again with a new offering and a forthcoming release to commemorate it.  

Just stop everything you’re doing, there’s a new Converge song.  

When I was in 9th grade, I had a very hard time accepting that there was never going to be another Revocation in my life. The technical wizardry that came with 2009’s Existence is Futile pushed my listening habits further in the thrash metal revival that was going on at the time, and because of myself and many others Revocation have gone on to survive that fad and continue to push themselves to where they are now as a band.  Discovering Revocation was a one of a kind feeling, but the closest I’ve ever felt to that feeling again was hearing California’s Madrost for the first time.  

Having been hyped up for the past few months, Vuur, featuring Anneke van Giersbergen of The Gathering and Devin Townsend Project fame, is finally slated to release their debut album. Entitled In This Moment We Are Free- Cities, the band is starting to fire on all cylinders.  

Vattnet (Formerly Vattnet Viskar) have been gearing up to release a new album for a few months now. With the debut of “Dark Black” in June, the band showcased a new direction, one that separated them from the post-black metal sound they were attached to prior. As they detail their new self-titled album, (Simply titled Vattnet) that trend continues, especially on their new single.
