THE METAL WIRE: Sean Killian [VIO-LENCE] Diagnosed With Stage 4 Cirrhosis Of the Liver; What Fans Can Do To Help Written by Marc C. Pietrek 2017 [Marc C.

Their fist two albums, ‘Eternal Nighmare’ (1988 MECHANIC RECORDS) and ‘Oppressing the Masses’ (1990 MEGAFORCE RECORDS) are considered classics by many of the genre’S fans...

Cultist – Received!

I just received my Cultist pack, and wow! First of, the package… I got the new Cultist cassette in a cloth bag with the Cultist logo, a cloth patch with the same, a sticker and a very nice black shirt with white logo. And the shirt is REAL nice, not the usual piece of shit garment with crappy image transfer. Nope, this is the real deal. So at this point, I am just stoked on the pack and have not even listened to the tape. Now for the release, “Three Candles”. It is a five song cassette that sucks you in from the first chord....

BAND FEATURE: PORTRAIT (Sweden)

BAND FEATURE: PORTRAIT (Sweden) Written by Marc C. Pietrek 2017 Fans of the original MERCYFUL FATE are a particularly stubborn bunch as I am one of them ha ha. To them, the chemistry that yielded those magic results on both ‘Melissa’ and ‘Don’t Break the Oath’ have never been able to be replicated by KING DIAMOND solo or the post-original MERCYFUL FATE incarnations. The classic line-up won legions of fans over worldwide almost instantaneously. To us fans, may whom are still huge fans today, no music put forth...
