Pentagram (Alexandria, Virginia)            If you’re a metal-head then you’ve probably heard the name Bobby Liebling.  The misfit of metal who had the band with the  potential of being as big as Black Sabbath.  The band’s impact was huge, and if Liebling hadn’t fallen to the clutches of drug addiction, they could […]

High on Fire (Oakland, California)                          Gritty blues driven stoner sludge.  It’s like your stuck in the middle of a burning field of weed.  It smell’s nice, but it’s really dangerous, and you’re not sure if you’ll get out alive.  Does that not sound inviting? […]

Conan (Liverpool, United Kingdom)                    Make sure to put on your full-length body armor, for the sound that’ll be emanating from your speakers is crushingly heavy, and your gonna need as much protection as possible.  The sound of the guitar and bass together is a destructive marriage of thunderous […]

Comments Off on Trouble

Trouble (Aurora, Illinois) And then, there was light within the darkness.  Within the ever growing evil/satanic realm of extreme music dubbed black metal, Trouble cracked through the surface shining their Doom laden light on a world of darkness.  Heavy as hell they were right there with Candlemass and Saint Vitus at the beginning of a genre […]

Comments Off on Melvins, The

The Melvins (Montesano, Washington)   Who doesn’t like The Melvins?  I’m serious, who doesn’t like The Melvins?!  IT’S THE MELVINS!  Shall I say more?  Yeah probably.  These guys are hard to categorize.  More than most.  They are metal, but with their strange sense of humor, experimenting, and different mix of styles they are quite unique.

Type O’Negative (Brooklyn, New York)                   Well, there wouldn’t be a Type O’ Negative without Mr. Peter Steele; frontman/bassist/main composer.  His biggest influences were Black Sabbath and The Beatles.  He formed the band in 1989 under the name “Repulsion,” but because of legal issues with a band of […]

Comments Off on Black Sabbath

Black Sabbath (Aston, Birmingham, England)                 It may be safe to say that if Toni Iommi hadn’t gotten the tip of his finger chopped off in a shop accident, we would not have the doom laden sound created and projected for the first time on people’s home stereos with a self-titled release; […]
