Report

August Burns Red Leads Fort Lauderdale Revolution

It's always good to step out of your comfort zone. Whether it be trying new food, visiting another country, or in this case, checking out a different style of music than normal, it doesn't hurt to do something unfamiliar. On this occasion, I decided to make use of my last night in the United States to check out the Revolution venue in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and witness a show headlined by August Burns Red.

Having unfortunately arrived too late to catch Australian openers Ocean Grove, it was Birmingham, Alabama natives Erra who were first up for this reporter. Being unfamiliar with their catalogue, or indeed any of the catalogues on the bill, I can see only comment on the performances themselves. Erra are certainly one of the more interesting bands on the metalcore spectrum, possessing a progressive and slightly left field sound, most notably their open use of keyboards. The crowd reacted well from the beginning to end and many were well versed in their repotoir, with some songs receiving substantially bigger responses than others. All in all, a very good performance from a group with more to offer than many other bands in their field. More...

The Best Heavy Metal Christmas Songs

It's a yearly tradition for metal bands, sometimes of the very extreme death/black variety, to pull out a few tongue-in-cheek Christmas covers around this time.

While most are just jokes or aren't pulled off with much effort, there have been a handful of legitimately awesome heavy metal Christmas albums released, and we're going to show you the ones worth hearing.

If you've got a significant other or family member who insists on Christmas music this time of year, these are the albums you want to pull out to really give them a shock!

Death Metal Christmas - "Hellish Renditions Of Christmas Classics"

Back in 2013, Hate Eternal bass maverick J.J. Hrubovcak released a twistedly unholy rendition of some of the seasons darkest hymns. The EP as a whole is a bit hit or miss, but that death metal rendition of "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" is absolutely killer. For all the hype this got at the time, it's a shame there's never been a follow-up release.

August Burns Red - "Sleddin' Hill"

While I'm not a huge August Burns Red fan personally, this Christmas album is absolutely phenomenal, and filled to the brim with metallic recreations of classic holiday tunes along with some originals. It's also instrumental, which is a plus, as the instrumentation here is top-notch and the band puts a heavy spin on these songs to a much better degree than many heavy metal Christmas albums that came before.
