Noted UK punk rock journalist Ian Glasper recently announced that he’s writing a book on the history of UK thrash metal, to be published…
Hellbound Metal: “Another highly-anticipated album for yours truly, The White Goddessis the long-awaited follow-up to the German power-doom band’s 2010 debut, The Golden Bough. Mind you, crafting a record of such epic length takes time; although, at 58 minutes, it’s actually some seven shorter than its predecessor!”
Hellbound Metal: “Alas, while part of me is still pining for the s/t, I’m digging this new direction as well.”
Hellbound Metal: The best new British band since The Meads of Asphodel, I can give no higher praise!
‘The Power’ will definitely be in my top ten for 2013, and if you love metal it should be in yours too.
Once upon a time, not so long ago, before the internet turned much of the western world’s population into isolated recluses, the tape-trading network was the lifeblood of the underground metal scene. In this spirit, Darkness Shade Records has produced three fine cassette releases.

The music world is filled with similar smoke and mirrors acts. We’re told over and over and over again that so-and-so’s new album is the one that’ll re-define the genre. How many times have you heard in the last couple years that this-and-that’s “stunning” comeback album is “highly anticipated” and their best yet? Better than Bonded by Blood? Not bloody likely! The lies haven’t stop piling up since the music industry released its ad campaign for Elvis’ second record and this month’s Rimshots lifts the veil, cuts through the crap and saves you some money and/or hard drive space.
