Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Callow’ by Therapy?

I wouldn’t advise the video ‘Callow’ by Therapy? to people who have the heebie-jeebies about seeing bad things happen to finger nails. “Callow” is from the Northern Irish group’s album Cleave, which was released Sept. 21. This video, though, was released back in May. It’s a pretty fast number with rather dark lyrics, which seems to be something that Therapy? is good at. They’re a … Continue reading Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Callow’ by Therapy?

Throwback Thursday: ‘Autumn Twilight’ by Cathedral

With the Autumnal Equinox falling on Saturday the days will grow shorter and the nights longer. So, what better way to greet the new season with “Autumn Twilight” by Cathedral. “Autumn Twilight” is my favorite song off their 1992 EP Soul Sacrifice. This EP was released just months before their landmark album The Ethereal Mirror. Soul Sacrifice at only four songs leaves an impact on … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: ‘Autumn Twilight’ by Cathedral

Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘My Life My Rules’ by Combichrist

“My Life My Rules” is from aggrotech group Combichrist’s 2016 album This is Where Death Begins. Not exactly safe for work, this rocking video might help put a little bump into your Tuesday doldrums. Combichrist marked their 15th year of existence this year. The Atlanta-based group was founded by Norwegian  Andy LaPlegua. For those unfamiliar with them, Combichrist has an aggressive spirit reminicent of electro-rock groups … Continue reading Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘My Life My Rules’ by Combichrist

Throwback Thursday: ‘God of Emptiness’ by Morbid Angel

Back in the summer of 1993, Morbid Angel released a little album titled Covenant. On Covenant was the song “God of Emptiness” which is our throwback video of the day. From what I understand, Covenant is the best selling death metal album of all time. Now, of that I’m not 100 percent sure. I am sure, though, that it got a lot of exposure, thanks … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: ‘God of Emptiness’ by Morbid Angel

Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘The Leader’ by Musta Paraati

Today’s tune is from Finnish goth/punk group Musta Paraati. This is the video for their song “The Leader” from their upcoming album Black Parade. Interestingly, this is the first album of new material since their 1984 album Käärmeet. Black Parade features all of the original members with the exception of vocalist Jore Vastelin who passed in 1993. Musta Paraati had a very, very long hiatus. They … Continue reading Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘The Leader’ by Musta Paraati

Throwback Thursday: ‘Down Deep into the Pain’ by Vai

Before Devin Townsend became known as one of creators of some of metal’s heaviest, strangest and most personal music, he was the singer for guitar superhero Steve Vai’s band Vai. It’s just been a little over 25 years since many of us were introduced to the kind of weird Canadian with an awesome voice, who honestly made the following song “Down Deep Into the Pain” … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: ‘Down Deep into the Pain’ by Vai

Retro-Review: ‘From Beer to Eternity’ by Ministry

What happened to Ministry’s lyrics? That’s what I’m asking myself because I just listened to their 2013 album From Beer to Eternity several times over the last week. At the time of From Beer to Eternity’s release, Al Jourgensen, the founder, heart and soul of the band had declared it to be their last album due to the death of guitarist/bass guitarist Michael Scaccia on … Continue reading Retro-Review: ‘From Beer to Eternity’ by Ministry

Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Mt. Skull’ by Pig Destroyer

Today’s Tuesday Tune at Noon is brought to you by Pig Destroyer. Their video for “Mt. Skull” shows what kind of whackiness can happen when pallbearers’ work goes awry. “Mt. Skull” is a song from their album Head Cage, which is being released this Friday, Sept. 7. by Relapse Records. The 12-track album is the sixth from the Virginian grindcore band, which formed in 1997, … Continue reading Tuesday Tune at Noon: ‘Mt. Skull’ by Pig Destroyer

Throwback Thursday: ‘Black No. 1’ by Type O Negative

Of all the albums to miss on its 25th anniversary, I had to miss Bloody Kisses by Type O Negative. I bought this album around the time of its release, based on the awesomeness of today’s video: “Black No. 1.” The album itself was one of my favorites from that year. Sure, you had the songs that the goth ladies went crazy for like “Black … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: ‘Black No. 1’ by Type O Negative

Retro-Review: ‘Elements’ by Atheist

It not sure what Atheist was going for with their third album Elements. On one hand, you have death metal pushed to its most technical and avante garde. On the other hand, you have a lot of “what is this even doing on this album?” Elements would be the last album by the band until 2010’s Jupiter. It followed their acclaimed 1991 album Unquestionable Presence, … Continue reading Retro-Review: ‘Elements’ by Atheist
