Noble Beast - Noble Beast
review by Rick Ossian
They come from the land of ice and snow and Vikings…no, not Scandinavia, and I’m not shower-humming Zep‘s “Immigrant Song“, either. Just going on and on, at length, you will find, about my most recent discovery. They are from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and they are Noble Beast. What sort of beastie, you might inquire? They are dragons, but they are also…
The Squadron Takes Flight Once More…
The following post appeared today on what used to be called The Stuka Squadron Memorial Facebook page:
“Squadroneers and adherents of the Subterranean Reich. Following the conclusion of THE BLOOD WAR which has disrupted our campaign for the last two years, Oberkommando has authorised the announcement of a NEW WUNDERWAFFE (MIRACLE WEAPON in your inferior Englishtongue). This is the first step in…

I’ll be honest. Death Metal is not my thing. Back when I was 17 and first getting into Metal I was rather scared one day by some very *odd* people who REALLYliked Death Metal and since then, despite knowing some perfectly lovely people who do like Death Metal and aren’t any weirder than any of my other…
To Whom It May Concern,
When Wyrdness abounds, to where does it go? I mean, for one thing, bounding indicates to me jumping, in particular jumping forward, kind of like Santa’s reindeerare supposed to do…that is assuming that wyrdness can be a tangible object. I was wondering while driving the other day why some bands don’t do what they used to, you know, back in the 70′s, or even the 60′s? My…
Bad Boy Bieber
Normally such trivial matters would NOT be on my mind, but Bieber on the cover of the Rolling Stone?
What the hell?
My wife and I just sort of looked at each other and agreed that, what with the questionable financial climate, economy of the times, etc., we should cancel my subscription to this ‘magazine’.
Unfortunately, I’ve also recently had to cancel some other magazine subscriptions. The ones…
Black Wolf - Keep Moving On
Taken from their forthcoming debut album ‘The Hunt‘, ‘Keep Moving On‘ follows on from the success of previous single ‘Mr Maker‘. Stomping from start to finish, both singles are a taster of big things to come…
Babymetal: Best. Thing. Ever
Post by Suzi H
Before you all start ranting at me about this is just some twee shite and getting all indignant go and watch the video. If you aren’t in a good mood by the time you’ve finished then I’d book yourself in for a doctors’ appointment – there’s clearly something wrong with you.
Japandoes almost everything (expect looking…
Nervosa - The Girls From Brazil
They’re from Sao Paulo in Brazil. They play Old School Thrash with more than a hint of Exodus and classic Thrash in general. If you take a look on the Reviews page, you’ll find that Cat A really rather liked them. So it was entirely fitting that when the chance came to interview the band, she jumped at the chance to do it.
WWRS: Your debut album, Victim of Yourself, is out in March on Napalm…
More Bands Added to Beardfest/Headbanger’s Balls Finale
You already know that Headbanger’s Balls are teaming up with Beardfest for the Birmingham date of the tour. Adding to the level of awesome created by already having Morgue Orgy, Left For Red and Reign of Fury on the bill, we’re ramping up the power by adding two more bands:
Ex Ex Deo?
Posted by Maurizio Iacono on Ex Deo’s Facebook page recently:
“Today I decided that Ex Deo and its legions will rest their arms. We will take an indefinite leave of absence, there’s a good possibility that Romulus & Caligvla be the only sonic assaults that will ever see the light under the flag of Ancient Rome‘s lone but real Epic voice : EX DEO
If another album will ever see the light.…
