IIOIOIOII: Post Brimstone EP

 

 There is something wonderful in hearing a new and interesting EP; and this is one of those wonderful moments. This is IIOIOIOII‘s latest album, or should I say glorious sample, Post Brimstone EP. “Post Brimstone was from the very start an evolutionary piece. Lyrically it was a step away from darker themes and going towards more uplifting messages. Musically I’ve always drifted towards smoother tones and melodies. I have a deep love of aggressive and challenging music but I’ve never been the type to yell or antagonize. So I stepped even further away from my older material of harsh vocals and synth work. This all ties in with the title Post Brimstone. The title concept is based on alchemy. Brimstone […]

 They have gone and done it again. They have kicked in the door of peace and tranquility, and ransacked the entire building, leaving chaos and Industrial destruction in their wake. This is ‘I Am God’ the long awaited Industrial monster by Kevorkian Death Cycle. The songs on this brilliant, 11 track, album are powerful and aggressive. Songs like ‘Prey To God‘ and ‘The Ravens Fly‘ personify the meaning of Industrial music -all grinding guitars, pounding drums, rebel yells and a myriad of uniquely Kervorkian sound effects.

Red Helen

Today we continue our support of the S.A Metal Awards. How did Red Helen start? Red Helen actually started back in 2008 but things were very different back then! The only remaining original member of Red Helen is Erick and he’s also one of the founding members! Red Helen and its original line up were around for a good while but sounded completely different to the Red Helen of today! Just over three years ago RH went through a major period of change, musically things were changing and the direction in which RH wanted to go and the vision for the band was changing. This resulted in many members leaving and carefully selected new members joining the band! Most of […]

Dark days need Dark Knight AMV’s:

While we may never have seen it, I believe it would be unreasonable to assume that the Dark Knight doesn’t sing, dance or produce music in one way or another. As such I entered a cave filled with bats and refused to come out till I found some Bat-tracks and accompanying lyrics. Behold my mighty haul of Bat-music to Bat-jam to! [youtube id=”IJmKxyqr57g ” width=”600″ height=”350″] [youtube id=”CVYR69E5D0c” width=”600″ height=”350″] [youtube id=”_8Dc2stbNq4″ width=”600″ height=”350″] [youtube id=”3Rt6B7m9ZaE” width=”600″ height=”350″] [youtube id=”Esuv2wYPEqk” width=”600″ height=”350″] Now that you’re bouncing with me and no doubt drooling over the tons of Batman movie footage, shall we agree once again that Batman makes everything better? If all else fails just YouTube “Batmetal” and see what you […]
