Two of the most important American bands of the early seventies were ALICE COOPER and BLUE OYSTER CULT. Both bands had a string of successful studio albums, sell-out tours and even hit singles on the radio. Some of the key members of the original versions of both these bands have joined force in a new live band called BLUE COUPE, who are playing some shows in Southern Ontario this week

There has been much controversy and mixed opinions surrounding Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground since its 1998 release. Michael Moynihan and Didrik Soderlind’s book is probably the most notable of it’s kind, offering much insight to the life and crimes of our favourite black metal artists.
Lords of Chaos: a story involving the TNBM scene, with actors retelling the intriguing, but violent tales of music, murder and arson. Will it shock or compel?
Goatwhore is one of those bands that lights a fire under my ass. Though generally regarded as a black metal band, they’re actually so much more. There’s a rugged punk attitude, the dirge ’n sludge inherent to Louisiana metal bands is certainly present—offering some definite doom sensibilities—and never before has their thrash influence emerged as prominently as it has now with the release of Carving Out The Eyes of God, easily their career’s highlight thus far.
Due to some technical adjustments being done at the radio station this weekend there will be no episode of HELLBOUND RADIO tonight. We’ll be back next week at the regular time.
Hey HELLBOUND readers, here’s your chance to tell us what you think. Seeing as how you are the lifeblood of this site, please give us your input…
Ladies and germs, here is the playlist for this past Sunday’s edition of Hellbound Radio. This week we had our youngest guest yet. Sean’s older son Kieran (age six) rode shotgun with us (although for most of the taping he was playing games on www.tvokids.com). While young Mr. Palmerston isn’t really a fan of metal, when asked what he thought of the show Kieran said it was awesome.
So, last Tuesday I was checking my emails before calling it a nite, when I noticed a message from John Gallo via the Hellride Music Forum. He said he wanted my Top 10 doom metal albums for issue number 2 of his zine, and that he had to have it by the end of the day…
Although I am writing this on the 30th, by the time I post this it will be July 31th and Hellbound will be on the final day of its second month. Hurrah! Not the most monumental achievement ever, but it feels like a major hurdle for me to have managed to update this website each weekday with new, fresh metal content for the past two months.
The closest thing to a stoner/doom festival we’ve had in Toronto was the 4/20 Sunday Stoner Rock Spectacular, a overambitious 10-band lineup put together by me and a buddy of mine. The lineup was all local, the attendance was mediocre, and the ElMo was pretty empty. Still, it was good times. So, when I heard that a similarly ambitious all-day ordeal was happening just across the border in Rochester, I made sure to confirm my attendance.
