Deicide – The Stench of Redemption

Deicide – The Stench of Redemption

Earache 3 Stars Still going strong after almost 20 years, the Florida-based death metal quartet’s latest release delivers vicious, soul-soiling riffs from start to finish. Glen Benton once again shreds the lining of his throat in the name of Satan, but the lyrics are mostly indiscernible, meaning you can enjoy...

Black Sabbath – The Dio Years

Black Sabbath – The Dio Years

Rhino 5 Stars For years and years Ronnie James Dio’s legacy in Black Sabbath was in disarray. Although he only recorded three albums with the Sabs, the work has really gotten better with age. Leaning heavily on the first two albums” Heaven & Hell” and “Mob Rules,” The Dio Years...

The Chris “The Crippler” Benoit Special Clusterfuck Editon!

So now they say pro wrestler Chris Benoit strangled his wife, suffocated his 7-year-old son and placed a Bible next to their bodies before hanging himself with the pulley of a weight machine! Holy fucking shit. Did anyone just say “ROID RAGE?” Ok, everyone just did. No suicide note was...

The White Stripes – Icky Thump

TV execs have lost their minds

I just read that ABC has greenlit a show based on the Geico insurance cavemen guys. WTF? These are neanderthals people. They couldn’t adapt 30,000 years ago, that’s why they died out. How can they expect to make it in Hollywood? They don’t even have a language, how are they...

4.23.07  @ MERCURY LOUNGE It took a lot to separate me from the TV and a VH1 classic rewind of Damn Yankees last week. Tommy Shaw’s stonewashed man shorts and Ted Nugent’s kill it and grill it self were about to rope me in for a second time. Anyway, I...

GOOD THE BAD AND THE QUEEN

3.12.07  @ Webster Hall OK let’s get one thing straight. Ex-Clash bassist Paul Simonon is the coolest guy ever! He even lights a cigarette better than anyone I’ve ever seen. He’s right out of a Godard film. Damon Albarn and his Bowery Boy top hat, led the charge along with...
