Massive Metal Monday: Nile “Evil To Cast Out Evil”
Ides Bergen   |  

Nile Band Photo

South Carolina death metal titan Nile has just released its eighth studio album What Should Not Be Unearthed. The album eschews the complex technicality of the band’s past few albums, marking a return to straight forward death metal on which the band first rose to fame.

Egyptology has always been the core theme of Nile’s lyrical approach and little has changed in that department. Listening to a Nile album is like taking a very brutal trip through history. If you like traditional death metal, I highly recommend picking up a copy of What Should Not Be Unearthed. It is one of the best death metal offerings that you will hear this or any year.

Black Metal Friday: Abigail Williams “Beyond The Veil”
Ides Bergen   |  

Abigail Williams Band Photo

Abigail Williams is a black metal band originally from Phoenix, Arizona, but now operating out of Los Angeles. They take their name from one of the initial accusers in the Salem witch trials of 1692, which led to the arrest and imprisonment of more than 150 accused witches. The band’s sound started out as an epic sort of symphonic black metal in the vein of Cradle of Filth or Dimmu Borgir, but over the years they’ve steered more and more toward a traditional Nordic black metal aesthetic.

This week’s edition of Black Metal Friday features the epic track “Beyond The Veil” from Abigail Williams 2012 offering Becoming. Check it out here below.

Kickstarter Spotlight: ‘Our Friend Satan’ Graphic Novel By Dominik Marzec
Waerloga69   |  

Our Friend Satan

Our Friend Satan. I’m not going to lie to you, I was full of preconceived notions based solely on the title alone. As it turns out, I was pretty close on the expectation of it being a parody of everything we are taught/told/whatever in our formative years. In this story, Satan is effectively just the CEO of Hell, and he’s pretty damned tired of it. Constantly getting a bad rap, he’s scapegoated at every turn by the Catholic Church (not necessarily the good guys in this tale). And while the world at large has seen him portrayed as a monster with huge horns and a pitchfork, he’s actually a balding older gentleman who spends his days in a bathrobe and slippers, drinking copious amounts of Cthulhu Vodka with his buddy, and chess partner, Beelzebub. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg with this comic! Hilarity abounds in the most infernal of ways, you’ll never know what’s coming until it’s too late. That’ll teach those silly kids to summon up the Prince of Darkness!

Kickstarter Spotlight: ‘The Threat,’ Issue 1 Reboot

Kickstarter Spotlight: The Threat reboot

A long time ago in an article far, far away I presented you with a Kickstarter Spotlight of The Threat from Stratum Comics. And thanks to 63 of you, the campaign was a success! Looking back, I reviewed the first issue three years ago and another contributor here assessed the second one a few months later.

I love independent comics like this one because they really bring our passions back to basics. But sometimes, creators realize that their vision wasn’t quite fully attained, hence the need for The Threat Issue 1 Reboot!

Kataklysm Band Photo

Canadian death metal titan Kataklysm is one of those rare bands that has managed to stay true to its brutal roots over the course of a nearly 25 year career. They have also managed the rarity of keeping a relatively stable lineup throughout their career. The band like to refer to their sound as “Northern hyperblast.”

Kataklysm continue to lay down the Northern hyperblast on their recently released twelfth studio album Of Ghosts & Gods. This week’s Massive Metal Monday track is the first single from the album “Thy Serpents Tongue.” Check out the video here below and pick up a copy of the record, which is out now worldwide on Nuclear Blast Records. You won’t be sorry!
