BLUT AUS NORD 777: Cosmosophy CD

Final album in the 777 trilogy and so far the only one I've heard in its entirety... an odd place to begin perhaps but I don`t feel like I'm at a disadvantage dropping in at this point but maybe I'll feel different once I put it in the context of the first two. Anyway, we […]

DEATH RATTLE #2

Though summers can be either harsh or mild the one constant for me has been the overwhelming presence of thrash and death on my sunny play lists. As the recent resurgence of each has been both celebrated (by music fans) and lamented (by music purists) the fact remains that gems are sprouting up all the […]
