What is your favorite format to consume music? Is your opinion swayed for said favorite if it embarks back to an era of a band that now has no original members? The original vision of a band can leave a lot to be desired, but does it really mean it has to remain that way? Perhaps it is how we raise our metal head children and the aspects of this extreme music we do or do not expose them to. Yet of course we have a lot more to say t... Read more

Does spectacle make a live performance better or is just a crutch? Maybe its fine for 4 fellas to stand around on stage as long as they play a killer set! Sure a stage show is cool, but it could be a gimmick for bad music. But let's focus on bad for a moment, strong songs aren't all that matter in the studio when there are plenty of studio shortcuts that can render a lousy sounding performance. This is definitely a pretty lousy des... Read more

Brutal has been a term used in metal for a long time and at this point its an unofficial sub genre. But what makes a band authentic with brutality? Is it long songs that likely don't offer any value to the listener other than being left to feel the track was an inconvenient purchase. Perhaps it was an awesome or dumb parody of Venom At War With Satan? Extreme music has extreme views, so stop wondering what all this means and tune i... Read more
