    King Diamond cover with Brann Dailor on vocals. It's been obvious that this was going to happen as soon as Mastodon started appearing in these covers

    Brendon Small on guitar

    Saw them the last time they came through Portland. They were playing with some of the worst bands I've ever heard live but Power Trip's set more than made up for it.

    honestly i didn't really get it at first. but their main dude died somewhat recently and i've been watching interviews with him. he said something about "single pedal thrash metal" and i was instantly intrigued. and yeah, Power Trip is/was awesome

    hawthorne has upstairs seats but no bar up there. it also smells like mildew and every band that plays there has the same muddy sound issues.

    I’m a Decible subscriber but that list doesn’t have Ulcerate’s Stare Into Death and Be Still which is definitely my favorite album of 2020.

    I know I’m not alone in that opinion. I’m not sure how you could overlook that release.

    I think it’s one of the best releases of 2019.

    Death metal is littered with boring, paint by numbers bands playing similar styles. These guys manage to make that sound fresh and interesting.

    if you like that, try 1914’s The Blind Leading The Blind. they incorporate some doomy elements and I find them to be similarly good. maybe it’s because the album covers look kinda similar.

    Really I discovered them at the beginning of the lockdown and love everything about them

    rock mixed with metal and you can dance to them

    I know most of you want down tunes guitars face paint and garbled vocals

    I respect that but I love em and when this is over I am gonna see em play in Denmark

    i would be more interested if they didnt follow that all too common trend in rock music over the last few decades: no, or very few, guitar solos.
