In just four weeks time, arguably the “most metal” (whatever that means) of the UK summer festival season takes place: Bloodstock Open Air. To get ourselves in the mood for a weekend of wearing denim vests and drinking mead out of horn, we’ve put together a gigantic Sunday Spotify Slaylist, featuring the best of this year’s line-up.

You probably think you know how this review of Heaven’s Venom is going to read. I’m going to trot out some clichés about Kataklysm being one of those bands laden with backhanded compliments – “consistent”, “dependable”, “proficient” and the like – without ever saying anything really positive. I’ll throw in some spiel about side-projects to cover up my lack of enthusiasm for “yet another Kataklysm” record. If you think that, you’re completely wrong.

After his debut Thrash Hits column last month, Metal Mark from SkullsNBones.com is back to tell us what’s been shaking over the pond in Atlanta these last four weeks.
What’s going on metalheads? The past month has been full of shows in Atlanta. Now my wallet is empty, and there is more PBR in my body than water. This month started out with the awesome Summer Slaughter tour at The Masquerade in Atlanta. The tour lineup was insane, with bands like Necrophagist, Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Origin, and Beneath The Massacre destroying the stage.
