BAND FEATURE (Including Interview): DUST BOLT

BAND FEATURE (Including Interview): DUST BOLT Written by Marc C. Pietrek 2017 Those of us who were lucky enough to be around during thrash metals’ most fruit baring years are a skeptical bunch. A lot of us will not even go see bands that we grew up with being loyal to because of excuses like, “It’s not the original line-up, dude!”. We do not buy their latest releases with “I don’t know, man. They went all death metal on the last few albums” as being our justification. I have heard them all and used...

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...

BAND FEATURE: SENTINENT HORROR

BAND FEATURE: SENTINENT HORROR Written by Marc C. Pietrek 2017 SENTINENT HORROR are a much welcomed blast of old–school style Swedish death metal by way of Woodland park, New Jersey. If you are a fan of the early works of ENTOMBED, DISMEMBER, UNLEASHED and GRAVE, then this band is a must listen for you. This unit lays down a savage, flesh tearing barrage of caustic riffs anchored down by floorboard loosening bass. The drums are a great combination of alternating d-beat and double bass (think ‘Left Hand Path’-era ENTOMBED crossed with...

BAND FEATURE: SPACESLUG

BAND FEATURE: SPACESLUG Written by Marc C. Pietrek 2017 DATELINE: LUNAR SECT 1. The marble is still visible to me but is now mostly shaded by the void. Is there water on this big, dusty grey rock? Quite honestly, I don’t give a rats ass at this point. Who can I tell??? All communications between myself, lone star and the cape ceased when this flying hot-rods CB died weeks ago. Last calculations would indicate that I have one shot to get through the “BOOM door”. Hopefully, if all goes well, I will get to enjoy the six-pack of...
