BONE SICKNESS On Tour Now

Olympia, Washington’s rancid pallbearers BONE SICKNESS today embark on their ultra-D.I.Y. Western US tour in support of their debut 12”, Alone In The Grave, unearthed by 20 Buck Spin in April. With several show confirmations still being locked down, today the grim Haunting The Grave 2013 caravan begins with a hometown show and then traverses south through California, Nevada, Texas and more before looping back to their gruesome origin, sharing the stage with Rude for the trek. Everyone in the path of this procession should be wary for updates as the murkier details of this brutal venture are confirmed.

BONE SICKNESS recalls some of the earliest and most savage days of death, grind and punk into a beastly and belittling American death metal. Their debut 12”, Alone In The Grave, unleashes a maelstrom of breakneck intensity in the tradition of Repulsion, Autopsy, early Napalm Death, Infest, Despise You and others, aborting seven tracks in under twenty minutes. Ghastly, unbelievably-detailed cover art for the release was executed by the sick mind of Chips & Beer Mag’s in-house illustrator Hand Of Beaver. BONE SICKNESS Haunting The Grave 2013:

SHITFUCKER - Album Coming Soon

Today, HELLS HEADBANGERS announces October 31st, that most unhallowed 'n' unholy of days, as the release date for SHITFUCKER's Suck Cocks in Hell debut album, on both CD and LP formats. One of the metal underground's best-kept secrets, Detroit scum-crew SHITFUCKER have finally delivered a full-length of filth after a prolific slew/spew of EPs and demos, under the fuck-off-tourists title of Suck Cocks in Hell. A power-trio in the grand tradition of early SODOM, VENOM, and MOTORHEAD, the three nuclear zombies of SHITFUCKER gnarl together ancient blackthrash and toxic hardcore-punk into a blown-out brew bubbling over with disease, degradation, and devil worship. Bow before apocalyptic witching metal of the highest order/odor: this is SHITFUCKER's Suck Cocks in Hell! Cover and tracklisting to be revealed shortly, but in the meantime, two of Suck Cocks in Hell's tracks can be previewed here: http://hellsheadbangers.bandcamp.com/album/suck-cocks-in-hell.

YOKO ONO, Talking to the Universe



Always thought Yoko sucked, what with all the 'Yoko Ono killed The Beatles' thing. Then, one time, back in college, around '98 I think, I was getting stoned with this older dude who said 'Yoko Ono is cool man', then he toked. Around that time I got a comp CD that came with a free music mag called Huh! and it included this song. It blew my mind, absolutely love it. One of my favorite songs to this day. Long live Yoko!

VOZ PROPIA - Ya No Existes


Got this tape when I was a kid (maybe 12), can't remember how, but it compiled a few bands that had gotten top positions in an underground rock contest. I didn't dig much of the material included, especially the metal band Orgus which had a really weak sound, but this was the track that I kept on playing again and again and again. I still do when I wanna remember.

MAMMOTH GRINDER Signs to 20 Buck SPIN

It’s been nearly four years since the last MAMMOTH GRINDER full length Extinction Of Humanity was released via Relapse Records (CD) and Cyclopean Records (LP). That album showcased the band’s direction into a distinctly death metal permutation, full of aggression and punk rawness. The band continued in this spirit on 2011’s split LP with fellow Austin, Texas-based Hatred Surge. Now in 2013, after much anticipation, MAMMOTH GRINDER has found a home on 20 Buck Spin for the release of their wildly destructive third full length album Underworlds.

Underworlds marks a peak at which MAMMOTH GRINDER have sharpened and perfected their sound into a seething grind/death/thrash maelstrom of intense degree; unrelenting in its concentrated raw precision and focused power, Underworlds careens violently through ten tracks with effortless versatility and the fixated songcraft expected of a band on their third record. Tracks like “Wraparound Eyes” with its Unleashed style mid-section or the short sharp shock of “Paragon Pusher” illustrate MAMMOTH GRINDER’s mastery over multiple variations of metal to assemble their own sound. Fans of Entombed, Pig Destroyer, Municipal Waste, Discharge, Napalm Death and Iron Lung will beat themselves into submission for missing out on this album, so do yourself a favor, and don’t miss out on it...

NORDVIS to Release SUMMONING Cassettes

Hot on the heels of GRIFT's critically acclaimed Fyra elegier, NORDVIS is proud to announce the cassette release of two classic SUMMONING albums, 1995's Minas Morgul and 1997's Dol Guldur. Privileged to contribute to the immortal SUMMONING legacy, NORDVIS will be releasing both albums in limited-edition tape editions, each limited to 150 copies. These two transcendental, nostalgic albums possessed a truly epic and groundbreaking sound for their era and added a new dimension to extreme music back in the mid '90s, cementing SUMMONING's legendry for all time. Thus, no better time than now to experience the world of Tolkien the analog way!

TRIBULATION set North American release date for "The Formulas of Death"‏

Today, THE AJNA OFFENSIVE announces May 14th as the North American street date for TRIBULATION's highly anticpated second album,The Formulas of Death. With The Formulas of Death, Sweden's TRIBULATION return to active service after working diligently on their sophomore album and follow-up to 2007's praised and heralded debut album The Horror.

Expanding their sound entirely beyond the gnarly and vicious death metal that was heard on The Horror, TRIBULATION's The Formulas Of Death sees a much broader and expansive soundscape introduced, favouring atmosphere and evocative instrumental elements to contribute to a very different picture to that of its predecessor.

Comparisons have been already made between the progression MORBID ANGEL made between Altars of Madness and Blessed Are the Sick and closer to home for TRIBULATION, the progression from TIAMAT's Sumerian Cry to The Astral Sleep. TRIBULATION's The Formulas Of Death is an ambitious project for these still-young Swedes, which will undoubtedly take time to sink in to be fully appreciated. The album is being released in Europe today by INVICTUS PRODUCTIONS, and has already garnered an esteemed 14/15 review in the latest issue of Germany's leading Legacy magazine.

HELVETETS PORT - Exodus to Hell (High Roller, 2009)

Been listening to this record all night. It came out in 2009 but I just bought a copy and after a few spins I still can't decide if I love it because it is good or if I love it because it is bad. Helvetets Port is like the heavy metal version of a solid and thoroughly entertaining B movie. That's all I can think of.

SWERVEDRIVER - Last Train to Satansville

I wish I could say this song reminds me of the good ol' times, but I missed these guys when they were something. Love this song...
