Show V of Avant Garde, what a milestone (not really). I tried to articulate this during the show and failed, so I’ll try again here: My thoughts are with the victims and their friends and families of the hit-and-run that occurred on the PSU campus on 6th & Montgomery. I wish them well and hope […]
A lovely day of metal featuring the lady vocalists of the scene. Myrkur, Offa Rex, Grace Disgraced and our friends at Arch Enemy. All too often the metal scene is one big sausage festival, these fine folks break the mold and bring us the octave ranges the genre should not be without (sorry King D, […]
The S word, Alunah, Sleep Terror and Slayer. All the metals to brighten one’s morning.
Two new singles: “Dance Macabre” by Ghost (off their upcoming album Prequelle) “Ossify” by Khôrada (off their album Salt)

Starting their set with “Alabama Movies”, a driving and angst filled track from Fuzz Steilacoom, the mood of the show was kicked into high gear. The three piece from Oklahoma City rocked out many tunes from their back catalog and a […]
Not a single song from this decade. Playing the old metals but good metals with a healthy dose of thrash and British invasion metal. We make the determination that BOC is indeed rockin’ enough to be considered metal… on some of their tracks at least.
