With everyone and their mother racing to post their year-end lists before the end of 2009, Noisecreep's token kvlt kommando 'Grim' Kim Kelly figured she may as well rain on everyone's parade and concoct a nasty little list of her own
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll, and while some musicians are content to focus all their energy on one project, many others find themselves saddled with a crackling excess of creative energy that leaves its bearer no choice but to invest their (usually limited) free time into other ventures.
North Carolina sludgemongers Sourvein are gearing up for one hell of a busy year. Currently locked away in a studio somewhere on the wrong side of the tracks, working hard to finish up their next full-length for Candlelight, the intriguingly-titled 'Aquatic Occult' while plotting a split release with Japanese bringers of doomed death Coffins, the band also has several very special live rituals looming on the horizon.
Recently confirmed for the 2010 edition of stoner metal mecca Roadburn Fest, held every year in Tilbu
American black metal maestros Absu have had a hell of a year. After emerging from the shadows in early 2007 with several live and split releases, main man Proscriptor assembled a crack team of musicians to complete a new Absu lineup and in 2009 and unleashed an unholy beast of an album upon their eager fans.

Unfortunately, the show must always go on, and if you're a touring band with the distinct lack of fortune to land in a major city right before a national holiday, well, time to suck it up!

The Atlas Moth hail from Chicago, but at this point in their budding career, they feel as at home in a van as they do on the streets of the Windy City. The psychedelic doomriders have criss-crossed the U.S. multiple times in the p
Philadelphia's underground metal scene is nothing if not incestuous (in the best possible way, of course). Take for example up-and-coming black metallers Woe, who boast members of Infernal Stronghold, Rumpelstiltskin Grinder, Absu, the Green Evening Requiem, Krieg and XXX Maniak amongst their ranks -- and there are only five dudes in the band! Their combined talents were more than apparent at a recent gig at Philadelphia's Club Polaris (Nov. 11, to be exact) where they opened for Chicago psych-sludge all-stars theAtlas Moth, New York City wildmen Wetnurse
