Ohio's Robot Lords of Tokyo are not your typical metal band. Consisting of Rick Ritzler and Paul Jones as well as a rotating cast of a dozen or so of their musician friends, it's hard to tell if they are even a band at all. But two albums of hard as nails rock suggest otherwise. So is i
Is it possible to be a "heavy" band without being a "metal" band? One needs to look no further than New York City for the answer, where bands such as Quicksand, Helmet and Unsane have for the most part avoided the metal tag, despite being unquestionably heavy. Brooklyn's Goes Cube are poised to pick up where those bands
Is it the snow and long cold winters or all the good-looking blond girls? Truckfighters can't say for sure, but despite being geographic opposites of California's once thriving desert rock scene, something is going on in Sweden that has germanium transistors and vintage tube amps continuing to be pushed to their limits. In the traditio
Profound Lore has earned a reputation as being one of the premier labels going right now, with a roster that features a wide range of potent underground metal. Despite the musical diversity amongst the PL bands, there is a commonality
According to their bio, Cauldron play "straight-up, rite heavy tit perv, beer-swilling, bullet-belting metal." Rite heavy tit perv?
"A rite heavy tit perv is the right to perv hard on a heavy tit," bassist/vocalist Jason Decay tells Noisecreep. "It's a right granted to us metal-lifers." Take that as you will, but Toronto's Cauldron seem
We were perusing Darkthrone's MySpace page the other day, looking to see what ass-kicking metal Fenriz might be recommending, and sure enough he came through again. This time it's a classic video of 'The Sails of Charon' from the Scorp
Profound Lore has just released 'Gin,' the third full-length release from enigmatic duo Cobalt, and already the comparisons are starting to fly. 'Gin' is slightly more accessible than their previous releases, and it certainly has some things in common with the likes of Mastodon, High on Fire, and Tool (epic songwriting, odd time signatures, riffs o' plenty), but Cobalt's unique brand of blackened metal comes across as far more raw, evil, and visceral than their more popular peers. While this may limit their mainstream appeal, Profound Lore label head Chris Bruni (at left) is hop
REUNITED AND BACK ON THE ROAD - After an abrupt break-up in 2002, West Virginia's original instrumetalists, Karma to Burn, have reunited and are hitting the road for a string of East Coast dates starting April 16 in Charleston, WV. In June they will head overseas for a European tour, including a stop at the Download Festival where they wil
Over the past year or so, Profound Lore has become the label du jour when it comes to metal, whether it's the "disturbing, surreal, f*cked up death metal" of Portal, the ambient drone of Nadja, the neo-classical chamber music of Amber Asylum, or the extremely harsh black metal of Wold.
