September 30th, 2014 By Phoebe Fico

Glam-Garage, Guitar-Driven

Purple, they say, is the color of kings. So it makes sense that when Kyle Thomas, also known as King Tuff, was recording his new record, Black Moon Spell, he kept thinking of the color purple. The songs sounded purple, he said. There is a certain accuracy to his statement, as the songs on the follow-up to his hugely successful self-titled record, recall that of the late sixties and early seventies rock royalty. Read more…

Thirty Years of Metal Plus Fourteen Drums Equals Gold

Sepultura is a heavy metal insititution. You can make an argument that modern metal, as a genre, was heavily assisted by their skull-crushing “Chaos AD” release. To this day, that record still gets name-dropped regularly even 20-plus years since its initial release.  They have influenced a generation of heavy metal fans and have inspired those in their home country of Brazil to continue to create heavy music.
