As Blood Runs Black “Instinct”

As Blood Runs Black - Instinct

Everyone loves a good comeback story. As Blood Runs Black has been lying dormant since 2006 when they released Allegiance. I remember the album being fairly popular at that time, due to the fact that deathcore wasn’t as oversaturated as it is now (in fact, I’m pretty sure people were …

Gideon “Costs”

The name Gideon can mean a few things in Hebrew:  “destroyer”, “mighty warrior”, “crazy ass motherfucker that knocks down trees” (not kidding).  Knowing that, I kind of knew what to expect when I received the new Gideon record for review, titled Costs.  It gives me great pleasure to report that it …

Swamp Thing “Swamp Thing”

Swamp Thing - Swamp Thing

Short, punishing and what hardcore is supposed to be (in my eyes). I am talking about Swamp Thing’s up and coming self-titled 7″. This 4 song release follows up their full length “In Shame” and builds upon on the great things it started. Unfortunately I won’t be writing much about …

Emmure “Speaker Of The Dead”

I’ll start this by coming clean – I’ve never paid any attention to Emmure in the past.  I never really knew much of what they were about, but I gave Felony a spin and was completely turned off, so I just left it at that and never returned.  Well, now …

Best of 2010 – DonnieCake Style

Alcest - Ecailles de Lune

This was a surprisingly good year in metal. The metalcore and deathcore scenes became completely overrun and ruined, but that’s ok because we don’t care about them anymore anyways. We, or at least I, saw a huge resurgence in straight up metal, and black metal didn’t have a bad year …
