Thrashing Metal Monday for Week of March 18th, Mixing a Dreamy Day At the Gates Among Carcasses! \m/

In an effort to throw you some wild curve balls, here’s some wild options for Monday. Again a brash way to awaken and take on the world!

First, this is a real curve ball, not exactly my cup of tea I’m looking for, but I’ve thrown some lemon into the cup and it’s actually a pretty sweet flavor of tunes. This band Dream State I’ve known about for some time and they keep sneaking back into my playlist. This is one of their newer tunes In This Hell.

This next band is one of the forerunners of, I’d say, melodic death metal. Discover At The Gates.

This next carcass, they’ve been in the mix for a long while now for me. Ever since rolling upon the flanged wheel into New York City and my buddy Mike picking up one of their albums, their first album Heartwork to be specific, at random. We then spent the next 20 hours on the train riding back to NOLA listening to Carcass and our other finds from New York City.


Thrashing Metal Monday for Week of March 11th. Oddities Abound! \m/

Alright, this one is going to throw your head into a vice for those really dedicated into the metal head realm. However, if you also like some of that EDM, techno craziness thrown in with some Lada Gaga on your metal then this one is going to twist that gray matter into a new part of your skull. Enjoy a little Rage of Light. Also, Judas is a pretty groovy song, awkwardness and all.

Now, to calm the darkened soul and get back into some coding or something, there’s always Apocalypse Orchestra to set you back upright.

To wrap up this trigonous set of angles, here’s some tranquility in darkness, with Dark Tranquility.

Thrashing Code Metal Monday for Week of March 4th – Get Awoke! \m/

A while back I was hashing through a number of metal Monday posts, it was time to get em’ started again. Here’s a few of my latest listens to help you awake this Monday and get into some thrashing code.

First off, again throwing this band into the mix, with incredible vocals that often shock people, Brittney Hayes (A.K.A. Brittney Slayes) tears into the sound barrier with inspiring awe backed by Scott Buchanen, Grant Truesdell, and Andrew Kingsley with virtuoso slaying! Learn more about Unleash the Archers or check out some of the following epic masterpieces that I’ve provided you here.

Next up a seriously wicked awesome band from beloved Ukraine from the city of Horlivka! Jinjer is lead by Tatiana Shmailyuk with Roman Ibramkhalilov, Eugene Abdiukhanov, and Vladislav Ulasevich. This band combines a varying twist of vocal melody and brashness, with extreme control from Tatiana and a diver set of melody and harmony among the strings, with prodding rhythm from the drums.

Since I’m going for a lucky three every Thrashing Code Metal Monday, here’s the premium curated third choice! This is an entirely new band I discovered just this past Sunday while watching the sun burn violently an etching across the usually overcast peaceful sky. Oceans of Slumber are different in many ways compared to much of the metal I’ve been listening to as of late, but have a huge variety of influence and a lower range that I in enraptured with.

The band is made of lead singer Cammie Gilbert and backed with Keegan Kelly and Dobber Beverly. It’s some slower moving, passion inducing surrealist art that flows along like the seasons.

Just for good measure, check out Sunlight live in studio with Oceans of Slumber too and also the absolute epic combination of video, art, music, and passion in No Color, No Light!

Some completely new tunes I’ve been enjoying.


Thrashing Code Metal Monday for Week of March 6th 2017, on Tuesday the 7th!

Obviously it isn’t Monday. But sometimes you go to a show on Sunday and you’re recovering on Monday and writing a blog entry just isn’t a priority. But in that vein, here’s the line up for the Bound by the Road Tour I dived into the pit with my brother this last Sunday! It was a truly brutal fight, loved it!

Thrashing Code Metal Monday for Week of February 13th, 2017

I’ve been getting a fair dose of New Orleans cajun grub lately so I went back to my roots and picked out a few bands from NOLA (That’s New Orleans, Louisiana FYI). Be prepared, NOLA Metal is a special level of sludgy heaviness and growl combined with some slightly psychedelic melodies thrown in.


With that, enjoy your coding heavy Monday metal!
