Austrian post black metal duo Harakiri for the Sky have quietly made a name for themselves in the underground, self-releasing a trio of lush atmospheric albums through their own Art of Propaganda label. It’s the band’s stunning fourth LP, Arson, however, which is set to break them to a much wider audience, and Decibel is

MEGADETH's DAVID ELLEFSON Was 'Surprised' By SLAYER's 'Farewell Tour' Announcement: They Are 'Young To Be Retiring'

MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson says that he was “surprised” to hear about SLAYER‘s “farewell” tour, explaining that the Tom Araya-fronted outfit is “young to be retiring.” Last week, SLAYER, one of metal’s most popular and influential bands of the past four decades, announced its “final world tour” via a 30-second video.

Italian Grind Legends Cripple Bastards Take On “The Outside World” Via 30th Anniversary Singles Box Set

Asti. Northern Italy. March 1988. The consolidation of the friendship and the common passion for extreme violence between drummer/vocalist Giulio the Bastard (aged 14) and guitarist Alberto the Crippler (aged 17), both coming from local thrash/punk bands that didn’t fit their tastes and didn’t match their ambitions, spawned the CRIPPLE BASTARDS.

Track Premiere: Blackwülf – “Dead to the World”

Oakland doom rockers Blackwülf have been prowling in the same sonic pack as forefathers Pentagram and Bedemon since they formed in 2012. Like their predecessors, they match denim-jacket groove with vintage Sabbathian heaviness. When their new track “Dead to the World” ominously opens, it sounds like the day of reckoning. When the track crashes to

BONFIRE To Release 'Temple Of Lies' Album In April

German hard rockers BONFIRE will release their new album, “Temple Of Lies”, on April 13 via AFM Records. Few German rock acts can look back at as long and successful a career as BONFIRE.
