Imperial Triumphant- Alphaville

One of my favorite bands in the avant-garde/experimental metal scene Imperial Triumphant is releasing their album “Alphaville” later this month on July 31st.  Somehow, someway I was able to get my grimy hands on this gloriously unusual piece of music by the New York trio.  The older I get, the […]

Noise Trail Immersion- Symbology Of Shelter

  Black Metal/Mathcore crazies Noise Trail Immersion are releasing “Symbology Of Shelter” this Friday November 2nd.  And yeah, it’s absolutely crazy.  Blending mathcore and black metal is an unusual and unorthodox idea (hey, that’s what my website promotes!)….right? BUT, Noise Trail lmmersion gets it done.  The album is a chaotic, […]
