Apostle of Solitude – “Of Woe and Wounds” ( 2014 Cruz del Sur Music)

Apostle Doom isn’t always low and slow, and it most certainly isn’t a forced eleven minute opus with the same recycled riff churning over and over. Doom is so much more than any of that.You feel it in your bones, it consumes you. The pain, the sadness, the despair, and the ugly becomes the most beautiful feeling in the deepest corner of your mind and your gut. Black Sabbath, were the first to fame the devil’s note. Witchfinder General followed suit. In the States bands like Trouble, Saint Vitus, and Pentagram planted the seeds of American Doom. Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus, and The State of Maryland helped further the melancholic movement. Enter Apostle of Solitude, and their latest offering “Of Woe and Wounds” Continue reading

Marzi Montazeri Interview from Sacred Skull Tattoo Presents In The Pit Radio Live Fridays 8/29/14

Now you can dig on this instant classic with The High Priest of Distortion from space, or your living room!



Electric Wizard – Time To Die (2014 Spinefarm Records)

EWElectric Wizard are back after a four year absence since their last offering “Black Masses”, which was labeled a return to the fuzz dusted classic sound that fans could not get enough of on what is often considered the measuring stick of the bands discography, “Dopethrone”. Lets get right to the gettin, “Time To Die” is not “Dopethrone”, or “Black Masses”. I know, no reason to continue reading right? Wrong! Few select bands can get by with putting out the same record time after time. The Wizard are known for their thunderous low end, venomous psychedelia, and their misanthropic down tuned messages of Satan, dope, and morose outlook of mankind and humanity. Couple this with the return of drummer Mark Greening, and you have the recipe for total destruction.

Overkill- White Devil Armory (2014 eOne Music)

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Some for the good, and some for the bad. Overkill come roaring back with their latest offering “White Devil Armory”. Overkill have always been a grossly underrated band, that year after year continue to progress and evolve the way in which they bludgeon the ear drums of their legions of fans.How can there be a Big 4, 8, 12 , or any stupid number of thrash bands and not have a sincere mention of Overkill? There can’t,and any fan of metal that has any knowledge of thrash will most definitely want “The Wrecking Crew” included.

Bloody Hammers Fuzz Lord, Anders Manga Interview 5/23/14

Miss the interview with your Fuzz Lord this past Friday? In The Pit Radio got ya ! Check it out! ALL HAIL THE FUZZ LORDS

Bloody Hammers- Under Satan’s Sun (2014 Napalm Records)

Hells House Band returns with their third album, and first for Napalm Records “Under Satan’s Sun”. The Fuzz Lords come roaring back nine months after releasing “Spiritual Relics”, and 16 months after releasing their self titled album. Two albums that are masterpieces can create quite a bit of hype for a band, and a huge amount of pressure that many bands would be crushed by. Fear No Evil, Bloody Hammers are three for three if you are keeping score! Not since Pantera released “Far Beyond Driven”, have I anticipated an albums release like the seemingly forever time waiting for “Under Satan’s Sun” to be released.
