Massive Metal Monday: Death Angel “Hatred United / United Hate”
Ides Bergen   |  @   |  

Death Angel Band Photo

Bay area thrash legends Death Angel are set to return with their eighth studio album on May 27th, 2016. The Evil Divide is the follow up to 2013’s The Dream Calls for Blood and contains some of the heaviest material of the band’s nearly 35 year career.

The album’s lead single is entitled “Hatred United/United Hate” and is a scorching piece of classic thrash. The song kicks so much ass that I knew from my first listen that I just had to share it with you all ASAP! So, here it is, this week’s Massive Metal Monday track “Hatred United/United Hate.”

Check out the official video here below.

Black Metal Friday: Vreid “I Krig” (Live)
Ides Bergen   |  @   |  

Vreid Band Pjoto

Vreid is the Norwegian word for “wrath,” which makes it a fitting moniker for the band of the same name. Hailing from Sogndal in Norway, Vreid was born out of the ashes of the band Windir.

In January of 2004, Windir leader Valfar (Terje Bakken) was caught in a sudden snowstorm and died of hypothermia at the age of 25. The remaining members of the band decided to carry on under a different name, but retained Windir’s brand of black and roll steeped in Norwegian folklore.

To date, Vreid has released seven records. This week’s Black Metal Friday featured song is the title track of their third album, the 2007 masterpiece I Krig. Check out this video of Vried performing “I Krig” live in 2010 from the DVD Vreid Goddammit.

Kickstarter Spotlight: ‘Mech: Age Of Steel’ From Ragnarok Publications
Maximus Prime   |  

Mech: Age Of Steel Cover

A few years back I interviewed a self-published author by the name of Rob J. Hayes over at SF Signal. Shortly after the interview, Hayes’ series was picked up and published by Ragnarok Publications, a genre fiction publisher that I hadn’t really heard too much about. I began looking into them a bit, and what I found really impressed me. These folks have been putting out some amazing work in the realm of science fiction and fantasy.

Aside from the regular selection of published novels, Ragnarok has used Kickstarter to release some fantastic anthologies (Blackguards: Tales of Assassins, Mercenaries, and Rogues; Genius Loci: Tales of the Spirit of Place) and, most notably, Kaiju Rising: Age of Monsters. Almost doubling their intended goal of $10,000, Ragnarok knew they needed to eventually release a companion anthology series — an answer to their Kaiju menace. Thus, Mech: Age of Steel was born.

Kickstarter Spotlight: Kickstarter Secrets

Kickstarter Secrets

I’m a regular supporter of campaigns on Kickstarter, as you may know. I support it financially as a backer, just like many of you do, and I try to shine a little light on many of them here at Geeks of Doom through Kickstarter Spotlight articles such as this one. But this little crowdfunding campaign is different from most.

The whole purpose of Kickstarter Secrets is to help other campaigns raise more money and create more enthusiasm with backers. As a company, Kickstarter helps fund a lot of various ideas, but many of the failed campaigns could have done better under different circumstances. And that’s what this campaign is all about!

Top 10 Things Team Captain America Said At ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Press Conference
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Captain America Civil War Team Cap

Captain America: Civil War finds our Steve Rogers leading a newly formed Avengers to continue to protect the world from lethal threats. But no good deed goes unpunished, and when a routine mission to apprehend a terrorist goes horribly wrong, the United Nations installs a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. This fractures the team, with Steve running a team who is against government oversight and Tony Stark who makes a surprising decision to fully support the system of checks and balances.

Last week we shared the top ten things we learned Team Iron Man said at the Captain America: Civil War press conference. From character evolutions to the new technological advances to telling a more engrossing story, Marvel Studios’ latest film is already being praised as the best comic book movie ever.

Now we have the top ten things that Team Captain America. Check out what Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, and director Joe Russo had to say from their panel at the film’s press conference below.

Black Metal Friday: Belphegor “In Blood, Devour This Sanctity”
Ides Bergen   |  @   |  

Belphegor Band Photo

This week’s edition of Black Metal Friday is a tribute to our friends Belphegor for carrying the torch of black metal in the face of religious zealotry. You see, while on tour in Russia recently, Belphegor frontman Helmuth was accosted by a fanatic from the Russian Orthodox Church who spat in his face and attempted to incite a physical confrontation. You can see the complete video of the incident here below.

Helmuth responded by returning the favor, spitting back in the lunatic’s face. However, much to the Austrian singer/guitarist’s credit, he turned and began to walk away from the attacker, taking the higher road and probably averting an international incident and possible imprisonment.
