Bram Teitelman’s top 10 of 2014

Posted by on December 12, 2014

It’s been a pretty long, insane year for metal with a lot of excellent music in it. A common complaint among people putting together these lists have been that there’s been almost too much music to condense into one list. That’s a great problem to have. The popularity of streaming services and/or YouTube have made […]

Metal By Numbers 7/16: Judas Priest redeem record sales

Posted by on July 16, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. Retirement plans for metal bands (or really any kind of rock band) seem to involve the same thing: big final tour with possibly a final album, then at some point someone says “Well, we […]

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. It’s a strange feeling when something so highly anticipated is finally in your hands.

Metal By Numbers 6/25: The fault in our Stars In Stereo

Posted by on June 25, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. I know absolutely nothing about The Fault In Our Stars apart from the fact that a) I incorporated its title into this week’s Metal By Numbers, and b) it’s apparently a big sobfest. But (presumably) no […]

Posted by on June 18, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. There are a lot of great debuts this week from a lot of great bands. Oh, there’s a few odd ones here and there (Tesla and Night Ranger? What year is this?), but otherwise […]

New and Noteworthy, 6/10: Cult of Chaos

Posted by on June 10, 2014

The volume of new releases coming out this week defies all logic and reason. If I don’t see at least eight of these new albums on next week’s Billboard 200 list, there is a serious problem! There is no reason for anyone not to buy AT LEAST one of these albums, if not more. So […]

Posted by on April 26, 2013

Last weekend marked the 15th installment of New England Metal & Hardcore Fest in Worcester, MA, and as expected, it was nothing short of barely-controlled mayhem.  This year felt especially topical, with the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombing suspects coming to a head just hours before Friday’s kickoff.  The outlet that heavy music provides […]
