Metal Alliance Tour: Behemoth, Goatwhore, 1349, Inquisition @ House of Blues Sunset, 4/5/14

Once again, I got to bring an extreme metal piece to the masses on GRAMMY.com! A side note: The night before I watched The Conjuring.  Scary flick.  But what made it even scarier was immediately after watching it, I went to my closet to change clothes for bed… AND A CRUCIFIX FELL OFF MY DOORKNOB […]

Slaughter of the Soul: Barge to Hell: Behemoth, Enslaved, Exodus, Mayhem, At the Gates, Napalm Death, Municipal Waste, Nachtmystium, Brujeria, Sepultura, and many more, Caribbean, 12/3-7/12

I have this thing where I’m really attracted to stuff that both excites me and freaks me out. So when, this summer, my friends and I decided to go on this metal cruise called Barge to Hell….to my friends all dropping out….to months passing with little thought of it or announcements of new bands on […]

HardRockChick interviews Orion from Behemoth

I interviewed Orion from Behemoth before their show at the White Rabbit in San Antonio. Topics include playing different types of venues, being a controversial/extreme band, his side project Vesania, something he’s obsessed with, the cover of NIN’s “Wish”, and the best piece of advice he’s ever gotten.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: Behemoth, Watain, The Devil’s Blood, In Solitude @ White Rabbit, 4/29/12

4 nights earlier I had seen this tour in LA. I’ve followed many tours over the past few years, and this proved to be the most interesting dichotomy of shows. After interviewing Orion of Behemoth on their bus, I grabbed some greek food across the street and waited for the show to begin. I was […]

Conquer All: Behemoth, Watain, The Devil’s Blood, In Solitude, Ides of Gemini @ House of Blues Sunset, 4/25/12

Sometimes things just magically fall into place. Two of what I’m sure to be my favorite tours of the year on back to back nights in LA? What are the chances? Schedules worked out so that I could experience both tours in TX and LA, a perfect aligning of the stars. As I stood there […]

Heavy Enlightenment: Behemoth, Septic Flesh, Lightning Swords of Death @ Slim's, 1/17/10

I’m driving back to SF from LA on about 5 hours of sleep, which is actually pretty normal for me, but nonetheless it led me into a long span of introspection on the open road. What am I doing with my life? I’m on the final countdown for an age milestone….and I’m following bands around […]

House of Growls: Behemoth, Septic Flesh, Lightning Swords of Death @ House of Blues LA, 1/16/10

I’m flying down the 5 at 90 mph, alternating between listening to the bands I would later see that evening and the Juliet, Naked audiobook, Nick Hornby’s latest work, which is, in part, about what it means to be a fan. It would be my first of two nights of Behemoth shows, where I would […]

Mayhem in the Heart of Texas, AT&T Center, 8/14/09

I couldn’t resist. I was going back home to Texas for a wedding, and I *happened* to see that Mayhem would be in San Antonio while I’m there. So even though I’d seen the show twice already, I tried my luck and was able to get set up to photograph and review the festival. I […]

2 Days of Pure Mayhem @ Marysville and Mountain View, 7/10-11/09

As I sit here in my new bachelorette pad, sore from moving and scared for what the future holds, I somehow have a smile on my face. I’m pretty sure it’s because I’m still high from the last two days, and I didn’t even take any drugs. It all started Friday morning at 11am, when […]
