Posted by on April 4, 2017

“Melt Your Mind.” It’s the title of the latest new song from Mutoid Man, but it’s also an apt description of what listening to the song will do. We loved Mutoid Man’s debut full length Bleeder when it came out a few years ago, given that we were big fans of Cave In. That band’s Singer and […]

Mutoid Man give you a 1000 Yard Stare

Posted by on June 9, 2015

Ben Koller of Converge to play Killer Be Killed shows

Posted by on January 7, 2015

When metal supergroup Killer Be Killed released their debut album last year, many wondered if they would ever be able to play live. Given that Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy have their own busy touring schedules, it seemed doubtful.

Stop what you’re doing and listen to this United Nations song now
