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 […]

The Time to Kill is Now: Summer Slaughter- Cannibal Corpse, Between the Buried and Me, The Faceless, Periphery, Veil of Maya, Job for a Cowboy, and Goatwhore @ White Rabbit, 7/27/12

It began as one of those days where I couldn’t bear to hear another piece of bad news; every ding of a text, ring of a call, or chime for an email led to a disappointment. And on top of that, In two days time I’ll be doing the most goth thing I’ve ever done: […]

Provoking the Ritual of Death: Goatwhore, Son of Aurelius @ The Blue Lagoon Santa Cruz, 5/26/10

I sped through the rain-soaked, foggy Santa Cruz mountains watching the sun disappear. With the stereo cranked high, I tried to drown out the sound of myself, but my mind continued to race as fast as the car. I have a lot on my mind. Is it possible to be the happiest you’ve ever been, […]

SXSW '10: Late Night w/ Goatwhore @ Headhunters, 1:30am, 3/18 (19?)/10

I’m speedwalking down the street, gingerly stepping around the intoxicated mix of musicians, attendees, and industry folks meandering around the street trying to decide if they should end their nights or not. I was not…..I still had one more in me, but since it was 1:20am and the set I had intended on seeing started […]

The Devil's Company: DevilDriver, Suffocation, Goatwhore, Thy Will Be Done @ Slim's, 1/8/10

It would be my first show of the year, and if this set the tone for the rest of 2010, I’m buckling up now because it’s going to be one hell of a ride. We left off in December, which was a tumultuous month with great shows that were bittered by loss, and I spent […]
