Pulchra Morte – Divina Autem Et Aniles Review

Pulchra Morte – Divina Autem Et Aniles Review

“When a metal musician says he’s been thinking about death, it’s easy to dismiss this as a given. Like, yeah dude. It comes with the territory. You’re wearing a t-shirt with twelve skulls on it. But when Jason Barron talks about the low point that led to the creation of Pulchra Morte—meaning “beautiful death”—things sound more serious: ‘I was going through an extremely dark time in my personal life… severe depression… complete and total loss.’ Barron, a veteran of the St. Louis, MO metal scene, recalls writing what would become the first song on Divina Autem Et Aniles. It was about an individual ‘composing his own epitaph, completely accepting his own failure, giving up.'” Darkness and divine inspiration.

Serocs – The Next Review

Serocs – The Next Review

Serocs began back in 2009 as a one-man operation, founded by Mexico-based guitarist Antonio Freyre. After a couple of EP releases, their debut full-length Oneirology finally surfaced a year ago. In the short time since then, Serocs has become a multi-national death metal conglomerate, with Freyre recruiting members of Vile, Monstrosity and Lecherous Nocturne (not to mention a whole shitload of guest appearances). For all the tech-death credentials of this group, the result is heavy on the “death” and short on “tech.” Mexican death metal is a special beast and Mr. Fisting knows his Mexican death!

A Eulogy

A Eulogy

Today there will be no review, for today we are going to mourn a fallen metal warrior. This metal warrior isn’t one you’ve ever heard of, probably, unless you were in northern Wisconsin in the mid-2000s when the bands Tower of Babel and Dumah first played together. I don’t even think I was present at the time, but it started a friendship with an excellent legacy that has lasted until today (in the Wisconsin Metal Alliance). But not only that, but friendships would bloom from it that are genuinely meaningful to this day.
