Saint Vitus, ‘Heavier Than Thou’ — Free Compilation
Considering the tumultuous histories and chemical indulgences of your average doom metal band, it's amazing that so many of them are still alive and kicking decades after they first got together. Think Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Cathedral, Trouble and Paradise Lost, among others...
Iceland Volcano Strands Metal Bands Across Europe
Lava-spewing volcanoes look pretty damn cool on album covers, but the past week has taught us that volcanoes and metal don't always mix so well. As anyone who doesn't live in a torch-lit cave knows by now, an Icelandic volcano erupted April 15, spreading clouds of ash across much of Europe…
Shrinebuilder’s Scott Kelly Reflects on 2009
Now that Scion's second annual metal extravaganza has come, seen, conquered and gone, we metal folk have some time to breathe easy (until Maryland Deathfest, anyway) and reflect upon shows gone by. During the blessed downtime, this Noisecreep writer had the very special privilege to speak via e…
Voivod’s Comeback Is One of the Most Appreciated of 2010

Shrinebuilder Release Double LP
Shrinebuilder -- the much-hailed supergroup consisting of Scott 'Wino' Weinrich (the Obsessed, the Hidden Hand, St. Vitus), Dale Crover (Melvins), Al Cisneros (Sleep, Om) and Scott Kelly (Neurosis) -- recently unleashed their self-titled debut album upon the world...
Rwake Love Liturgy, Played New Songs in New York
This writer has been hung up on an album that was released in 2007 for months. The album makes a trip to hell seem like a warm and spiritual journey. It's the kind of album that can really change lives and strike epiphanies. The album that I can't stop listening to is Rwake's 'Vo…
