Over at CFMU, I co-host the metal show – Kill, Eat, Exploit the Weak – and we just finished our annual Christmas special. It’s…
After ceaseless rock ‘n’ roll hurdles overcome, and a legacy of thousands of sweaty shows, Twisted Sister’s third LP, 1984’s Stay Hungry, had brought…
Even if you already own one or two of the DVD’s in the set, this is a worthwhile trade up. If you’ve fallen behind this year and haven’t picked up any of the DVD’s then get out and grab this set! (And, of course, ‘tis the season so it makes a swell gift idea too!)
Paul Speckmann has been playing death metal longer than many fans of the genre have been walking the planet. The Chicago native started his long-running project Master in 1983. He’s also played with other bands including War Cry, Abominator and the Czech death metal band Krabathor. Dark Descent Records recently reissued his early band Death Strike’s demo Fuckin’ Death. Speckmann recently talked to Hellbound’s Justin M. Norton about the early days of Chicago death metal and his new life in Eastern Europe from his home in the Czech Republic.
This, as far as I’m concerned, is the ‘must see’ live DVD of the year
Love him or hate him, there is no denying that A.C.’s Seth Putnam was one of the most controversial figures ever in extreme music. On the eve of the release of their new album, Justin M. Norton spoke with him about the new “F**kin’ A” album, surviving an overdose and how it did not make him change his lifestyle, as well as his actual, undeniable love for the music of Motley Crue and Buckcherry.
Since Seth passed away unexpectedly over the weekend, we are re-running our recent interview with him, one of the last interviews he did before passing away. RIP.
Back by popular demand, here are the Staff Playlists for February 2011!
My complaints about this disc are few (I would REALLY like a straight through version of the show) but my praise is high. This is a great watch for fans new and old and the accompanying live CD has some great rare live 80’s tracks as well.
Hellbound’s staff give our picks for Halloween-themed songs to coincide with one of our favourite holidays.
The concept of the covers album is a risky one. Nothing wrong with slapping one on as a B-side or extra track. But to propose a whole album of covers often begs the question, “What? Have they run out of their own material already?” When you decide to make the cover album an ongoing series, you run the risk of self-parody; Six Feet Under are getting dangerously close to that point with Graveyard Classics III.
