Vermis-mortem
I have encountered a number of times when fans state that extreme metal is going nowhere and rapidly becoming pop music, as it were. Although, this topic is vast and can be discussed for ages, I would like to narrow it down by jumping right into the conclusion. In my modest opinion, extreme metal is and will be alive because there are plenty of artists to keep it up. For this article specifically, I have got the Brasilian oldschool duo Vermis Mortem who pay homage to the early stages ofRead More

Best Black Metal Albums and Death.FM

I believe that metal communities are more united and stronger than the rest out there. The reason is because we are very passionate and dedicated not only to some type of music but an entire culture. Often misunderstood, metal societies hold up no matter what  because we support each other, we share similar visions and passionately stand behind them. That’s the way it is’s supposed to be, that’s fucking metal! In the same spirit I’d like to dedicate an article to two websites that have been a personal inspiration for aRead More

The band is represented by Rick Millington – vocals, guitar and bass, Nathan Patchett – guitar & bass, Gareth Hodgson – drums and Michael Blenkarn – keyboards (guest appearance).

New devastating album by Wrong coming in April

A year later after releasing “Memories of Sorrow”, Spanish bringers of desolation Wrong have come back charged with more negativity than ever to continue their legacy in destruction. In April the 22nd their new album “Pessimistic Outcomes” is seeing the light of the day and it is released through Xtreem music. The album’s concept is about a world consumed by ashes, where despair, pessimism and hatred govern mankind; condemned to exist in misfortune, wandering desolate landscapes, gradually weakening until breath leaves them. “Pessimistic Outcomes” is an authentic experience that we recommend toRead More
