    Does the fall of music ever depress you? It does me.

    I wouldn't say that I limit myself exclusively to those types. Yeah, there's a lot of crap in both the metal and the electronic realm, but they appeal to and resonate with me more so than other genres because they are not (or at least, no longer are) constrained by stylistic boundaries, and...

    Does the fall of music ever depress you? It does me.

    Personally, I've long since stopped concerning myself with where a given artist lies in terms of cultural prominence.   I primarily listen to metal and electronic music (I like and appreciate other things, but none really get as much playtime with me). Both are extremely nebulous blanket...

    The Exploration of Metal and Progressive Rock

    As far as progressive rock goes, I think the most interesting thing I've heard lately has been Vehicle from a band called miRthkon. This is basically a modern day incarnation of Frank Zappa playing in unison with Mr. Bungle, with more or less everything else but the kitchen sink thrown in at one...

    miRthkon - for fans of Zappa, Panzerballett, Estradasphere, SGM, Thinking Plague, etc.

    Basically, if you're a fan of any of the bands in the subject line, you should get this. Even if you only have some vague, passing interest in RIO and/or avant-prog, you should get this anyway. The Zappa influence is probably strongest, but you can also hear Mr. Bungle worship, the quirky...

    Greatest Heavy Metal Drummers of All Time?

    Dirk Verbeuren - most notably of Scarve and Soilwork - would probably get my vote. Check out Scarve's Irradiant album for a pretty solid showcase.

    Just got back from Summer Slaughter... 10 straight hours of relentless death ****ing metal. Great show and a great lineup this year - Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Origin, Necrophagist, Beneath the Massacre, Decrepit Birth, and a bunch more. This was only the second date in the US, I think. Many...

    Kalisia - for fans of: prog metal that doesn't suck? I don't know.

    Basically, this French band has taken bits and pieces of every single non-crappy prog metal band in existence and proceeded to copy and paste them into some kind of ultra prog metal conglomeration - a 70 minute epic sci-fi song divided into 20 tracks. This might sound like a disaster waiting to...
