Necrot – Blood Offerings

Knowing I was going to see Undergang, live in Baltimore and seeing Necrot was touring with them I knew I had to check them out.  Luckily Larry Larriland Lapinsky told me Necrot kicked ass and to check them out.  Thankfully I did and what a find Necrot are.  Based out of Oakland, Ca, although the […]

Victims – Sirens

Since 1997, Stockholm d-beat masters Victims have carved themselves an immovable position in the crust punk underground and for me to sit here and tell you the history of the band I’d be wasting my time.  They do a better job of it on their very own websites, so why should some schmuck like me […]

Cannabis Corpse/Ghoul – Splatterhash Split EP

Heavy metal, and its various extreme offshoots, can be a serious game.  Searing bouts of rage-filled abrasiveness, disenchantment with society, bleak subject matter, and of course unrelenting aggression are some of the defining attributes that we associate with the backbone of extreme music.

They each supply four songs, […]

It’s all in good fun and Cannabis Corpse is nothing if not clever when it comes to song titles and lyrics parodying the likes of Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, and Deicide. Musically, the chops have always been there, but to use the example of 2009’s The Weeding EP, the songs just weren’t all that memorable. […]

Abscess/Population Reduction – Split

Split albums are common in metal but yield mixed results. Far too often, listeners labor through 20 minutes of crap to get to five minutes of goodness. Here’s a combination that works – a dual platter from the bowels of the San Francisco Bay Area featuring death metal veterans Abscess (formed by two members of […]

Cannabis Corpse – The Weeding EP

GEORGE took a mammoth hit off the bong, coughed, and leaned back in the beat-up recliner. Eager to get even more stoned, he took yet another hit, let the acrid smoke fester in his lungs, and closed his eyes. Death metal blared from the box stereo system, which was obscured by a seemingly infinite number […]
