Ghost get a lot of shit for their music and their image, but I honestly dig their music. The band will release their new album Meliora this fall and the first track from the release has found its way online. The track is titled “Cirice” and it’s pretty fantastic. Someone stated that the track has a slowed down Slayer-vibe to it and I 100% agree. The shred is definitely “South Of Heaven”-esque. Check it out for yourself below. Continue reading

A good friend of mine is constantly giving me compact discs that they’ve burned for themselves. Because of this, I was cleaning my apartment and unearthed an old copy of White Pony they had given to me. As any Deftones fan would expect, after listening to it, I was thoroughly blown away.
