San Diego Metal

Theosis

  Theosis's style of Death Metal is like a beast climbing up from the deep depths of fire and brimstone who is ruthlessly pushing aside souls and boulders out it's way to rip your face off! Theosis is melodic Death Metal with  tremendously shredding  and pugnacious drums with outrageous aggression. You're just going to have to check this shit out for yourself!     San Diego is slowly opening up just as we've all reached our limit of Netflix and [...]

Psylow

For The Stoner Metal Lover... Photo credit: The sorely missed Scott Clift   Psylow's creations are substantial with low distortion, psychedelic and  blues influences with nicely shredding riffs with nicely done vocals all this talent has blended in to something that is utterly intoxicating. Honestly, Psylow is a perfect audio confection for those of us who enjoy that Stoner Metal. At this time, there isn't much to post about Psylow but once this lockdown is lifted, I'm sure [...]

Sergulath

Sergulath Should I unleash the information about this band? Are you sure you're ready for this ungodly magnificent black / thrash metal quartet? Well pull your panties up because this band, Sergulath, is no joke - serious as death and ultra next level metal!  Sergulath was one of three bands, along with Defy The Tyrants and Mystic Ritual,  who moved forward in round 1 of San Diego Wacken Metal Battle 2020.  It was pure metal therapy and an absolute joy [...]

Cryptic

Cryptic participated in San Diego Wacken Metal Battle with an more than outstanding brutal performance that any lover of metal would be more than pleased to have experienced. I loved every second of their set! I thought Cryptic brought their 200% with all the passionate brutality, shredding and vocals we have all come to expect from an above decent progressive thrash metal band.  We apologize for the lateness of this post, in fact Round 2 of San Diego's Wacken Metal [...]

Eridia

Eridia Eridia has artfully spun a fine metal into a diaphanous infusion of atmospheric music, alternative rock and more with progressive symphonic metal that is simply a lovely departure of the norm.  They were the first band of the night at San Diego's Wacken Metal Battle but I was late. Sorry to say that I walked in, just in time to see their last song. I really must get my shit together! However, just within those few minutes, I  heard [...]

Wacken Metal Battle Round 1

Metal Freaks! Wacken Metal Battles are for YOU. That is, if you ADORE metal and love convenience, you cannot go wrong by attending a Wacken Metal Battle. Seriously, the Wacken Metal Battle is basically a one stop party your ass off and senses altering event. For example, last night's event included 6 bands, a door fee of $15 and a shit ton of fun that will leave you grinning for days! Last night was Wacken Metal Battle Round 1 and [...]

Creature

CREATURE! What do you think of the name for this band? So simple but the name, Creature, creates great mental imagery. Don't you think? Seriously, their name, Creature, made me think of all those old black and white B-movies. Obviously, The Creature from The Black Lagoon. Oh well, I'm a blathering simpleton so lets get to it! Shall we? Creature is a San Diego based hybrid Speed / Thrash Metal band. The band members are young, most likely fearless and  [...]

K Prouty – Instrumental Metal

K. Prouty Have you ever heard anyone claim that metal suffers from a lack of definitive music?  You know, for some reason, some people do not hear the intricate finger work and the incredible shredding with complicated drum work. They just hear noise. As those who love this genre and it's sub-genres, we know that this "noise" is rich with multi layers of musical talent and influences. Nevertheless, such as the case with any and all forms of art - [...]

Fisted!

Fisted!! Fisted is one hell of a show! They are funny, extremely likable and definitely talented. They bring 110% metal aggressiveness to their shows and it's an awesome experience. I highly recommend that you attend a Fisted show. You will have face melting good time! I promise! Fisted is one of three bands ( Osmium and Methodrone were the other two )  that I saw at a King Batt Entertainment show at Stage163. I hope to see them again in [...]
