On April 20th, INERNAL BLEEDING drummer and veteran FDNY firefighter Bill Tolley passed away after falling five stories from a rooftop while battling a two-alarm apartment fire in Queens, New York. The tragedy touched family, friends, his bandmates, the city of New York, and the worldwide metal community.  

This is a bold statement, but Violet Cold should be the next big black metal act. With the post-black metal craze still going somewhat and bands like Ghost Bath and Deafheaven pushing the gendre’s ironic boundaries, it’s only logical for bands of this style to come forward with something different. Yet that rarely ever happens. Violet Cold’s Anomie seems to be the peak of that, though. While albums like Sunbather and Moonlover are definitely influential on modern black metal bands, Violent Cold goes the extra mile are even draws from the likes of Panopticon and Saor to compose post-black metal that’s refreshing and might be telling everyone to get their act together.

Currently celebrating their 20 year anniversary, Italian Metal icons LACUNA COIL and the band’s long time label, Century Media, have decided that it is time to enter into another chapter in their relationship. Both parties are pleased to announce that Lacuna Coil have just signed a new deal with Century Media Records.  

Florida’s Dark Sermon have, unfortunately announced their break-up as of today. The deathcore-turned-death metal act had been seen on tour with the likes of Thy Art is Murder and Exalt, but the band’s vocalist, Johnny Crowder, has released a statement in regards to the band.  

Heavy tours are a common occurrence in the metal community, but every so often you see a tour and say to yourself “I’m probably not going to live through that line-up.” This is one of those moments.  

It’s no secret that we enjoy Marvel’s Netflix series. While their films are in their own right great, the Netflix series (For me, at least) captures what I love most about the concept of superheroes. Since the initial announcement of the Marvel-Netflix deal, every season released has been building up to The Defenders, in which the Netflix heroes team up and fight a threat bigger than any of them individually. Finally, it seems we’re getting close.
