Its all about canadian liferuiner!
Also, the new Veil of Maya song is fucking tight.
11:27 AM on 02/13/10
love the shit out of Daath!
11:34 AM on 02/13/10
lovin that Suffokate! video for not the fallen is nothin special though.
11:47 AM on 02/13/10
I heard that the new Liferuiner is gonna change their name soon.
12:01 PM on 02/13/10
I don't give up, I let go.
King Conquer are such badasses around here. Glad to see them getting some credit.
12:09 PM on 02/13/10
Can't wait to hear some new jams from The Sword.
12:13 PM on 02/13/10
Ov Hell sounds interesting, it'll probably the only true black metal record Shagrath will be a part of this decade.
12:48 PM on 02/13/10
don't just stare at it, eat it
too much metal, not enough HxC!!!
01:23 PM on 02/13/10
I'm still trying to figure out the Burning The Masses thing. Is Big Chocolate still in Disfiguring The Goddess too, or no?
Anyway, good to see King Conquer got signed and the new Demon Hunter album is going to be really good. Don't know about new Veil Of Maya though. That song just sounds like something from their last album, but with better production.
01:39 PM on 02/13/10
It'd make sense since the original lineup is playing together again. They actually have a show in Montreal on March 12th.
02:05 PM on 02/13/10
liferuiner is the worst band ever i toured with he real liferuiner when they were rad. they arent even from canada anymore everyone in the band has been replaced about 300 times and im sorry i just have no respect for that. at that point they are just a liferuiner cover band. lameeeee
02:10 PM on 02/13/10
new Woe Of Tyrants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !
08:41 PM on 02/13/10
Does a band really need three guitarists like in the case of King Conquer?
