Profound Lore Records Founder Chris Bruni on His Path to Success
It somehow makes all the sense in the world that Chris Bruni, the proprietor, sole employee and prime mover behind Profound Lore, one of the most prolific labels on today's metal landscape, is also a conservatory trained pianist. "I've never played in a band but I have an understanding of music," says the soft-spoken Bruni from his home outside of Toronto, Canada ...
Hard Rock and Metal Releases – August 2011
Summer is beginning to give up her fight, to borrow a lyrical phrase from the decidedly un-metal Indigo Girls, but that doesn't stop her from pushing out a slate of worthwhile metal releases. The first week of the year marks the return of Bury Your Dead with their former singer Mat Bruso for 'Mosh N' Roll...
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.

Shadow of the Torturer Rely on Guerilla Tactics to Spread Doom
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, Engorged, Fall of the Bastards and Oakhelm...
Planet Caravan Festival Recap: Day Two
"Welcome to the black T-shirt festival," Aaron Deal, the drummer of Salome very fittingly laughed out to the crowd after the band's first song. Throw in wizard beards and pot tits on guys, and you have defined the crowd of Planet Caravan Festival in an accurate, yet wonderful way...
Yob Make Sure It’s Family First, Doom Second
Last year, when doom veterans Yob announced they would reform, heading into the studio and returning to the stage, the legions of fans old and new squealed, hoping the band would end up on tour. But this is highly doubtful, since Yob was never a band to live on the road the majority of the time in the first place...
