Friday Top 10: Best Death Metal songs

People always ask me “Hey, you awesome metal journalist you, what are the best songs of <insert genre>,” so I figured I’d write a list about the greatest Death Metal songs of all time.

There are just a couple of rules I’m limiting myself to. #1 Only one song per band, #2 Must be Death Metal; not Melodic Death, Deathgrind or Blackened Death.

Sounds simple? Well, it is, isn’t it? So make the jump now for this week’s Friday Top 10.


Weekly Dose of Metal: Bolt Thrower

Bolt Thrower are awesome. Their last album Those Once Loyal is a nearly perfect, groovy Death Metal album. It’s so good that the band didn’t record a new album yet because they don’t feel like, what they’ve written is good enough to be better than Those Once Loyal.

That’s pretty much what every band should do. If the stuff you’re writting is not on par with your previous work, don’t release it. Metallica, take notes.

So anyhow, your Weekly Dose of Metal today is a song off Those Once Loyal (oh, what a surprise), called ‘Salvo.’ Play the song below and, while you’re in the right mood, feel free to check out my interview with Karl Willetts (Bolt Thrower vocalist) from last February.


17 years ago seems so far away

17 years ago, Pantera’s Far Beyond Driven went to #1 on the US Billboard 200 charts. Currently on #1 on said charts is Adele and I have absolutely no idea who that is but I think it’s safe to say, they (or she?) aren’t metal (it’s worth noticing that the Foo Fighters are on #2 and I absolutely view that as a great thing).

17 years ago, even Kurt Cobain was blown away by the sheer amount of quality metal albums that were released that year. In the year of 1994, many great (and now legendary) albums were released. Make the jump to see the highlights of 1994.


Interview: Karl Willetts (Bolt Thrower)

Do you love to hear about war? Do you love oldschool Death Metal? If you can answer both of these question with yes, then you must love Bolt Thrower, one of the most popular and influential British Death Metal acts of all time.

Bolt Thrower always stood for quality which was manifested when the band decided not to record a follow-up to their 8th album ‘Those Once Loyal,’ because, to them (and many others), this album was the “perfect” Bolt Thrower album.

I got to interview Bolt Thrower vocalist and mastermind Karl Willetts recently. Check out the interview after the jump.
