Photo Gallery: Gorguts @ Fubar (St. Louis, Mo)

Band Interview: Fit For An Autopsy

Jake Janitch, Nick Licata, Steve Kruczyk, Matt Albers The extreme metal subgenre continues to bring us new and unique acts that stand out among trends that may come and go.

Photo Album: The Faceless @ Fubar (St. Louis, Mo)

Photo Album/Concert Review: Sumerian Records 10th Anniversary Tour

It’s crazy to think that Sumerian Records tenure in the U.S. metal scene has only lasted 10 years, from 2006 to 2016. The inception of the annual Summer Slaughter Tour in 2007  brought several new metal acts such as The Faceless and Born of Osiris in its inaugural year as Sumerian Records quickly began climbing the ranks…
