Nominon Back In The U.S.

Just hours after an all-day punk and metal crawfish boil there was an international show called from the Death Metal Darkness Tour with bands coming from the U.S., Europe, and even Mexico that was not to be missed. Oppressing, extreme heat in the late night hours permeated the wooden bar. The three touring bands, Quinta Essentia, Infinitum Obscure, and Nominon, are all signed to Deathgasm Records, definitely a label to check out with a show like this. More...

Unearthing the Metal Underground in New Orleans

New Orleans is known worldwide for its legendary music of every genre. Myths have been created about what could have possibly happened here that made it such a hotbed of musical creativity. To quickly debunk those false myths; a lax government combined with a mixture of fun-loving people of all ethnicities led to a freedom of expression, and one off-shoot of that was music. Rock n’ roll was created in-part by the citizens of New Orleans. Therefore, metal would soon find its way into the dive bars and clubs that fill our streets. Sludge was our specialty, but all kinds of metal started pouring out of the amps, and some bands became famous, spreading “New Orleans Metal” around the globe. That first wave of musicians is still performing, and they’re still amazing. Exhorder is playing their first show in eight years this month! But the scene is thriving and alive; new blood mixing with the more established bone structure of Crowbar, Soilent Green and Eyehategod. Here is just a few of the bands keeping the spirit of New Orleans metal new and ever-growing; in the same position that the most popular of bands were in 20 years ago.

Black metal Serpentis plays often and has gained a steady fanbase from it. Drummer Will pounds the drums like a madman, drenched in sweat by the third song because he forces his soul out through his arms for the crowd. The guitars are strummed so fast, they could set a fire instantly. Vocalist Heretic growls and gestures violently to preach his word to the people; not preach so much as shove down their throats relentlessly. Already these gentlemen have gotten on the bill of big acts such as Cannabis Corpse and Marduk. They are surely headed for notoriety at their break-neck pace.
