German black metal is enjoying a renaissance of sorts. The past couple years have seen stellar new albums from Secrets of the Moon, Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult, Endstille and even the much-heralded return of suicidal black metal pioneers Bethlehem. A good number of these releases have waxed progressive, looking beyond t
What's in a name? Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? Would nightshade strike as deadly? Or since we're talking metal, would Dying Fetus slam so hard if they were named something much more digestible? Rather predictably, given the average maturity level of your typical metal fan, German progressive black metallers Semen Datura have gotten plenty of guff about their unusua
The lineup and running order for the second annual Heart of Winter Fest has recently been released by the festival's creators, Drew and Elway of Richmond, Va.-based black metal destroyers Bastard Sapling.
Doom titans Shadow of the Torturer's vocalist and axeman extraordinaire Mike Brown wasn't always an acolyte of the heavy. He mused to Noisecreep, "I was the first drummer in H.C. Minds, and I think I unkn
Seattle's heaviest export, Shadow of the Torturer, are no strangers to change. The current incarnation of the band is comprised of three hardy scene veterans who've all done time in other bands (Aldebaran, H.C. Minds, North American Bison, the Fartz), and its original lineup boasted current and ex-members of Yob, E
Mere moments after Noisecreep found out about Northwestern destroyers Shadow of the Torturer, hungrily devoured the music on their Web site and gotten mega-stoked on their monolithic cacophonies, we were confronted by rumors that the band had already broken up. Naturally, our black little hearts were crushed. What cruel joke had the metal gods played on
Hipster hangout Kung Fu Necktie is rapidly becoming the go-to venue for quality metal shows in Philadelphia, and those of us that call the 215 home couldn't be happier. After playing host to the likes of Krieg, Total F---ing Destruction, Nachtmystium, Wolves in the Throne Room and Krallice in recent months, the dimly-lit alcove welcomed yet another trio of amplifier worshippers into the fold on Jan. 8 in the form of Jucifer, Salome and Deathbeds.
Dec. 28 saw a veritable 'who's who' of the Philadelphia underground rip apart the tiny stage at Kung Fu Necktie and leave it for dead, including Nightfall, Woe, Infernal Stronghold and Krieg. Openers Nightfall warmed up the crowd with their noisy misanthropic D-beat,
Split releases make up one of the strongest staples of the underground music scene. Whether it's releasing a three-way tape with your buddies' powerviolence bands or going all out on a 180 gram picture disc with one of your idols, doing a split is one of the best ways to get your music heard by unfamiliar ears (and can be pretty damn profitable, too, if you play your cards right and vinyl nerds get wind of your wares).
In a move that's sure to please those who walk the doomed path, North Carolina sludge fiends Sourvein recently entered the studio to record the follow-up to 2008's 'Imperial Bastard' EP, and they promise to hit us hard with a new full-length next year. Noisecreep caught up with vocalist T. Roy to get the down 'n' dir
