“Be it that gnarly scream, outspoken attitude or empowering stage presence, Philip H. Anselmo can do it all. The multifaceted musician from NOLA is everyone’s favourite frontman of aggression; from shaping sub genres in Pantera to forming the supergroup Down, Superjoint Ritual and many side projects in between.”

In this entry of Blasphemous Meals, Ola Mazzuca covers three recipes from the Hellbent For Cooking book (Bazillion Points) that come from here at home in Canada! Three very different options are presented here, two dinners and a desert, from three very different bands that have been a part of the Canadian metal underground over the past thirty years (Dissection, Blasphemy and Bastardator). Check them out!

In this entry of Blasphemous Meals, reader discretion is advised to those of you who are vegetarian, vegan and on and on and on. You’ll find six saucy, savoury, satanically delicious dishes that are from three different carnivorous groups: beef, fish, poultry and pork. They are warm and welcoming as you retreat from the frostbitten woodlands in the coming months – at least for our Canadian Hellbound readers.
“This installment of Blasphemous Meals brings you the very best of winter’s warmth from Hellbent for Cooking. These dishes are hearty and fire the soul. Just because winter is over doesn’t mean that heavy food should be eliminated with heavy metal.
Enjoy the following foodie ventures from the Blasphemy Blog test kitchen. Winter may be grim in a headbanger’s world, but spring is pretty cool, so prepare for the season as you warm up to multicultural fare from Sir Lord Baltimore, Trouble and Abigail.”
