It’s completely criminal that Psychotic Waltz slipped under most people’s radar back in the 1990s. Despite being one of the earliest examples of progressive metal, there were numerous factors that meant they never saw the same spotlight that other contemporaries like Fates Warning, Queensryche and Dream Theater saw. Partly this was due to their hometown; San Diego’s heavy music scene back in the 1990s largely consisted of punk bands which catered...

The age of djent is over. Whether people would like to admit it or not, the short-lived spotlight of bands with impeccably polished production and syncopated palm-muted guitar riffs played on extended range guitars has come to an end in the world of metal, and most younger bands that are gaining any popularity are instead going for grimier, harsher sounds like Code Orange.

Hi guys, how are you guys feeling about coming back to 2000 Trees and headlining The Cave this year?

Both: Amazing.

If you cast your mind back to March of this year, you might remember the progressive metal juggernauts Between The Buried And Me releasing the first part of their Automata series, simply titled Automata I. Whilst Automata I was an all-round solid release, it proved to be a topical point of discussion within both the act’s fanbase and the wider progressive metal scene. In contrast to the act’s typically perceived persona, the release was rather co...

There’s a common and frustratingly fraudulent misconception in the mainstream media concerning extreme metal and music as a whole. In a manner most ignorant and somewhat uneducated, many people foreign to the genre perceive the subject matter within all extreme musical content as nothing more than frenzied, demonic and comical preaching’s of violence and occult worship. As we all know, It’s a ridiculous and cliched stereotype that many acts have...
