It's finally Friday, Abyss!
After another week of trading time you'll never get back for money that's spent before it's in your bank account, it's time to look forward to two days all to yourself (or two days of getting caught up on laundry, several hours of yard work, and ferrying your sprouts to bandsocceryouthgroupgrandmashousecamp). Yippee!
We here at Metal Abyss feel your pain, and want to make your weekend just a bit more metal and enjoyable. To that end, every Fr
Happy Friday, Abyss! A totally random encounter with Parius' new LP, The Eldritch Realm, while looking for new jams on my laughably-short vacation has yielded this week's Full-Frontal Friday pick. With campy horror films as a jumping off point, Philadelphia's Parius have crafted an innovative and twisted death metal score that begs for repeat listens. From deft time changes to crazy catchy riffs to Rod Serling's chain smoking narration, The Eldritch Realm is a dark, fun conce
And miracle of miracles, your humble man-in-the-pit correspondent actually managed to get a day off today. All that really means is that Pretty Wife will find many things for me to do around casa de JPR that do not involve naps, kettle cooked potato chips or listening to metal. Maybe I can still work a half day...
Anywho, Fridays mean one thing and one thing only here at Metal Abyss: FULL FRONTALS!!! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, every Friday we feature a full, official alb
The Artisan Era is the hero we need, not the one we deserve. Greetings, loyal Abyss reader, and thank you for tuning in to another Full-Frontal Friday. In the off chance that you're new here, every Friday we feature a full, official album stream from a band that makes us twerk our respective booties repeatedly and violently. This week's rump shaker is from Tacoma Washington natives Aethereus, who are dropping 'Absentia' today on (you guessed it) The Artisan Era. Before we
How yet another week has come and gone is beyond me but here we are, on the cusp of another glorious summer weekend. No doubt Pretty Wife will find many things for me to do around casa de JPR; but that often means I'll be able to put in the earbuds and at least enjoy some tremolo picking and growls while I work. not a bad trade off, if I'm honest.
Whether or not your weekend will be spent in similar fashion, Metal Abyss is here to provide you with the tunes to accompany w
Dog days of summer? You bet your sweet patch-covered denim jacket it is! Of course you know that means I had to find something to chill/rage to. Hopefully this does the job.
Season of Mist is positively KILLING IT this year. Whether it's Alkaloid's 'Full Anatomy' or the decided not metal but stillsofreakinggood Thy Camouflage, this label has been positively on target in 2018. Case in point is Craft's brand new LP: White Noise And Black Metal,' their first in 7 years. Sp
Happy Friday, Abyss!
Here at MA HQ, we spend most of our week avoiding any real work at the jobs that put roofs over our heads while at the same time searching for official album streams for you to crank all weekend long. We call it Full-Frontal Fridays, and as long as mum's the word to the guy who signs my paycheck, you can always count on a new album being featured every Friday here at Metal Abyss. This week's pick is one more monstrous tech death offering from earlier
Happy Full-Frontal Friday, Abyss!
That's right, another week down the tubes and that means one thing and one thing only here at Metal abyss HQ: it's time for another official album stream!
I'm of the mindset that you simply can not have enough technical death metal in your musical diet. Fortunately, over the past year we've had simply extraordinary releases from Archspire, Alterbeast, Rivers of Nihil, among countless others, so there's literally been no want for genre-
Good Full-Frontal Friday to you, loyal Abyss reader!
Somehow another week is in the bag and around the non-existent Metal Abyss HQ that can mean only one thing: it's time to legally stream an album for free.
This week's choice was a total no-brainer for me. Pennsylvania's Burial In The Sky released a juggernaut of an album less than a month ago and, though I've often been accused of over-stating the case, I am confident in telling you that multiple pseudo-music journalis
Unfortunately, this Full-Frontal Friday blog does not feature a pictorial of Debbie Harry circa 1979. To help soften the blow of this terrible, terrible disappointment, allow me to suggest that you give this a listen. Tempe, Arizona's Kardashev bill themselves as a "Progressive Death Metal group focusing on the advancement of the human race through themes of technology, selflessness, love and altruism." On their most recent offering, 2017's 'The Almanac,' the band have craf
Greetings on this glorious Friday, Abyss!
Week two of Full-Frontal Fridays, in which we share with you a full, official album stream from a record that makes us want to break things, finds us listening to an album we got a quick taste of a week or so ago and left us wanting more. When The Beast of Nod released "T.C.T.W.A.D.M.L.C. (The Cybernetic Tiger with a Dorsal-Mounted Laser Cannon)" as a single, I instantly got a big, stupid smile on my face-without even hearing a not
Never let it be said of the Metal Abyss crew that we aren't willing to try something new. Earlier this week I pitched the idea of featuring a full album stream every Friday from an underground metal band. The editor, who is both wise and devastatingly handsome, agreed. And so here we are, with our first installment in what will (hopefully) be a weekly series we're calling Full Frontal Friday. Yes, that's a shameless sexual innuendo because we know what sells. Rules for a F
