Picture the scene: it's the early 2000's, nu metal is still the biggest thing, Metallica are about to release St Anger, and the concept of streaming hadn't even been thought of yet - strange times indeed. If you did manage to make it to an extreme metal tour in this period, you may have seen 5 inexperienced kids take to the stage in Hawaiian shirts, and possibly be one of the first bands ever to play a death metal...

Similar to Architects' 2018 opus Holy Hell - you'd have to search far and wide to find someone who isn't willing The Ghost Inside's return to be a home run. The tragedy they suffered that you're probably already aware of (Google if not) in the back end of 2015 means that realistically: the fact we're listening to new music from the five piece at all is a miracle, anything more than that is a bonus. 

Admittedly that makes objectivity a ch...

Birthed in the mid 2000's, Colorado's Havok under normal circumstances would have had their work cut out for them in their quest to make themselves future stalwarts of thrash metal. You'll remember that as we were reaching the middle of the naughties, Nu Metal had arguably already peaked - and the new wave of American heavy metal was in full swing. The likes of Lamb Of GodKillswitch Engage, Machine Head, and Devildriver had charged through...

Alternative rock quartet And The Sky Darkened find themselves in an interesting spot on sophomore EP Between Ghosts. With a sound that seems open to interpretation - there's still no clear signal for exactly which direction the four piece will be heading from here, it's an unpredictability that's as exciting as it is dangerous if mismanaged. Even with that said though, there's a sweet charm to this record that serves a more than adequate mus...

Though when it comes to size and appeal, thrash metal reached its cultural peak in the 80's, it's bands like Municipal Waste, Revocation, Power Trip, and Havok that have kept the genres modern day heart rate from flat lining. Generally sticking to the classic blueprint left for them: Denver four piece Havok have always took nods at the Mount Rushmore of thrash, but never quite been an outright carbon copy of their fore fathers. Their breakout rec...

As we approach the two decade mark since their inception, one of the many, many elements of The Black Dahlia Murder's career that deserves adoration is the bands refusal to take their legendary death metal status for granted. Twenty years in, we still find ourselves discussing a band that are trying to both sharpen, and curve the edges of the molten metal they spit out. The reality is that when so many outfits often find themselves in creative pu...

Californian metalcore quartet Silent Planet have released a new fresh new single & music video for 'Trilogy'

The track itself follows the bands Redux 2020 edition of The Night God Slept

On 'Trilogy' itself, front man Garrett Russell said: "I wrote this song in a mental hospital after a traumatic series of events in which my anxiety and depression threatened the continued existence of this band. The song details my reintroduction to myself... and...

In many ways, Pat Sheridan embodies exactly what it means to be a guitarist on the front line of extreme metal in 2020. Having been a prominent figure in Fit For An Autopsy's sometimes slow, but always sure ascension: he's one of the many musicians in alternative music that have had to scratch and claw for every segment of success they could dig their nails in to for over a decade, but in essence: there's really no one else like him. 

His pre...
