And The Year Of The Split marches on. I’m here today to review two new splits. When I say “new splits,” I mean that literally. These splits were released this past Tuesday and both splits were highly anticipated by me and countless others, I’m sure.
The first split I am going to review is between Phillip H. Anselmo and Warbeast. I was really looking forward to this album because I am a huge fan of Phil and his work on all of his projects. If you are unaware of this man’s talents, come on, how can you be? But, for those of you who somehow don’t know who he is, he is the frontman of Down and guitarist for Arson Anthem. He is also the former frontman of both Pantera and Superjoint Ritual. Now that I’ve pointed out something you should all know by now, let’s hop into this review. Continue reading →

I haven’t gotten my hands on Devourment‘s new album, but as I stated in my last post about them, I didn’t like their music until I heard the teaser for their new album. Why? Because it sounded to me that it wasn’t going to be br00tal slam. It sounded like solid death metal! Continue reading →
Remember that cool fan-made music video for Alice In Chains‘ “Hollow?” You should because it was great. Not only was it a really awesome video, the song is incredibly infectious.

Not only that, Alice In Chains have also released an official music video for “Hollow!” Continue reading →
