Converge have risen up the ranks over the 27 years since their formation to become one of the elite bands in hardcore. Since the release of 2001’s Jane Doe, every album they release is pretty much an event, and it’s been five long years since the release of their eighth album, 2012’s All We Love We Leave Behind. […]

Mutoid Man return with first taste of new album

Posted by on April 4, 2017

“Melt Your Mind.” It’s the title of the latest new song from Mutoid Man, but it’s also an apt description of what listening to the song will do. We loved Mutoid Man’s debut full length Bleeder when it came out a few years ago, given that we were big fans of Cave In. That band’s Singer and […]

Mutoid Man give you a 1000 Yard Stare

Posted by on June 9, 2015

The more we hear of the debut Mutoid Man full length, Bleeder, the more we’re loving it. Just the combination of Cave In’s Stephen Brodsky and Converge’s Ben Koller (along with Saint Vitus’ sound dude Nick Cageao), alone guarantees a good time, but the songs are even tighter and at a more breakneck speed than their debut […]

Killer Be Killed play first show together

Posted by on February 23, 2015

The initial lineup announcement of Killer be Killed sounded almost too good to be true. The frontmen of The Dillinger Escape Plan and Soulfly/Cavalera Consipiracy with Troy Sanders from Mastodon and Dave Elitch from the Mars Volta? While the album delivered, the logistical schedule of the band meant that they wouldn’t all be readily available to […]

Ben Koller of Converge to play Killer Be Killed shows

Posted by on January 7, 2015

When metal supergroup Killer Be Killed released their debut album last year, many wondered if they would ever be able to play live. Given that Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy have their own busy touring schedules, it seemed doubtful. Then it was announced that they’d be playing the Soundwave shows in Australia, […]
