Hoax the System: Corrections House, Werckmeister Harmonies @ Echoplex, 1/5/14

LA on a quiet night can seem oddly discordant, like the dull underbelly of a bright bug.  As I drove the dark, empty streets to my first show of the year,  I remembered that I began last year with Neurosis.   My head was awhirl as my car was filled with the sounds of Nachtmystium’s […]

SXSW Day 4: Naam, eyehategod, Pentagram @ Scoot Inn, 3/19/11

Metal Sludge: EYEHATEGOD, Stormcrow, Brainoil @ DNA Lounge, 12/11/09

It may be five days later, but we’re essentially picking up right where we left off. Cold. Rain. Slightly incapacitated HRC. DNA Lounge. Metal show. Which is perhaps why the doorman no longer really needs to look at my ID nor give me the flyer for the next one (cuz he knows I’ll be there), […]
